The A.M.s Releases New Song “Torn Vine”
- American alt-folk duo The A.M.s, consisting of Adrian Libertini (vocals, guitar, bass) and Mariko Langan (piano, backing vocals), released a new song “Torn Vine” on June 10, 2022.
The song is the first single off of their upcoming debut album “Ignite the Sky”.
“I wrote these lyrics nine months before my milestone birthday. I was thinking about my birth parents, where they were in the world, and perhaps forty years later, they would be thinking about me too,” Mariko Langan said of the song. “When you're adopted, you just want to know who you look like, and who you can unfairly blame for all your bad traits.”
She continued, “Adrian sent me his musical idea: a lyrical line over strumming harmonics, and I immediately heard percussive piano underneath it. We've been building on that idea ever since, creating layers upon layers further illustrating the complex notion of identity.”
Currently, the duo is writing and producing music separately across the West Coast — Adrian Libertini is based in California, and Mariko Langan is in Washington. Despite the distance, the duo has created over 50 songs and is working towards releasing their debut album.
The album is expected to be released later this year.
