    The acoustic-electric sibling duo Dva was founded in the spring of 2006 in small town near to Hradec Kralove. Now they operate in Pardubice and Hradec Králové.

For collaboration on this album they again chose the Berlin producer Jayrope. This year they're finished soundtrack for click&point adventure game Botanicula (Amanita Design company) and they have nomination on Independent Games Festival for music.
