Hailing through the beachside city of SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, the Botticellis combine pop-based songcraft with dreamy guitars, analog production methods, and a nostalgic like for browsing. Founders Zack Ehrlich and Alexi Glickman had been elevated in Southern California, where they released a songwriting collaboration in middle college and often frequented Venice Seaside to browse. They required a liking towards the area’s constant blast of hollow, chest-high waves, nicknaming them botticellis (Italian for “small barrels”) and absorbing the beach’s sunlit surf tradition. While learning music at UC Santa Cruz many years later on, Ehrlich and Glickman crossed pathways with lo-fi maker Burton Li, who helped the duo record an early on album. Li after that joined the music group, as well as the three music artists relocated north to SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA. The lineup continuing to swell in the Botticellis’ fresh environment, with lyricist Blythe Foster and bassist Ian Nansen climbing aboard. Right now sporting a cinematic, sun-drenched audio, the quintet retreated to San Francisco’s Outer Richmond area to live collectively and focus on a debut recording. Four years later on, Old Home Films showed up on Antenna Plantation Records.
