COCA on Instagram: Artistic Responses

Tracy (@tracy_at_if) from the band Once Great Estate has some masks and music to share. She shares:

"The band stopped gathering for rehearsals while we were all sheltering at home. Wanting to keep busy, we decided to record a new song...entering the studio one at a time, and wearing our masks. We just wanted to keep creating, but do it in a safe manner. Our new song "Nothing Left to Do" is now available everywhere."
