The Mimmos are Berwyn, Pennsylvania, based husband and wife songwriting team, Amanda and Matt Caucci. Matt started writing songs in the early 2000's with a computer and a Yamaha keyboard. They sounded alternately like computer generated advertising jingles and video game music. He called the collection of songs "An Unhealthy Obsession With Vast and Empty Places," and called himself "The Mimos." He imagined the collection as the soundtrack for a nautical adventure movie with themes he obsessed over, like alien abduction, mad scientists and the mystery of the elusive giant squid. Matt worked at night in a server farm and spent a lot of time awake when everyone else was sleeping. Amanda had become a public high school art teacher in Philadelphia (like she still is) and so the two of them adopted a one eyed cat, got married and had a kid (naturally). They started writing songs together about the aspects of their lives that were the most mysterious, and most interesting. They tacked an extra 'M' onto Matt's old moniker and became "The Mimmos." Unintentionally, every song seemed to come back to their shared obsession with the night sky, the vast ocean, and in some way their collective fascination with the rare and elusive giant squid.
