The Southern dream pop duo of Azure Ray began their rise in 2001 when Orenda Fink and Maria Taylor joined Crooked Fingers / Archers of Loaf's Eric Bachmann for something musically enchanting. A little more stripped than Bright Eyes and their other outfit, Little Red Rocket, Fink, and Taylor shaped a delicate soundscape for their 2001 critical self-titled debut on WARM. The next winter, Azure Ray issued the November EP on Saddle Creek, which featured collaborative work with Andy Lemaster (Now It's Overhead). Sophomore effort Burn and Shiver followed in spring 2002 on WARM and exuded a more serene soundscape and slick production work from Bachmann. Fink and Taylor also collaborated with Moby on the song "The Great Escape" for his 2002 release, 18.
