Currently, the duo lives together in the heart of Pittsburgh cultivating underground music and art scenes and curating events. While Abstract Theory has been making some waves in their hometown, they are finally ready to break through globally in 2021, with a slate of singles and visuals promised for the new year.
"Blue depicts and questions the uncertainty and hardships we face within ourselves and the world around us."
