Separation agreement (CA/BE)

Most bands have the luxury of creating music together as they hash out riffs, play loudly and feel the combined excitement of a new song being born right in front of each other. Usually in a small, cramped jam space. This is not the case with SEPARATION AGREEMENT, a band born from being apart.

In the spring of 2015, LL Schultz (Down the Lees, Dating Myself) packed up her life in Vancouver, BC and moved to Ghent, Belgium to explore the other side of the world. Feeling the musical pangs of separation from one another, Sarah Jane Truman (Ghost House, The Doers) suggested a long distance writing project that spawned three emotionally charged songs, created and built upon using the internet. Back and forth, riffs and lyrics were sent to formulate their debut EP called Familiar Haunts.

"With Schultz in Belgium and Truman in Vancouver, the pair craft a stunning collection of tracks whose strengths lie in its haunting melodies and raw lyricism."
