import/import started as a solo recording project conducted in a series of bedrooms and basements. The compositional focus of the project centers around woodwinds, keys, and textural experimentation. import/import's first EP, interface lakes, will be released by The Real Future Recording Company on September 27, and the band's follow-up and third record are in the works.
