Nous is an EP by singer-songwriter Diane Birch, her third EP released and her first independent release, released through bandcamp on January 31, 2016, and by iTunes on March 22, 2016. The album was written and recorded mostly in Berlin, recorded at Vox-Ton Studios, Joy Sound Studio, and Hympatia, mixed by Birch at Hymnpatia, and mastered by Nene Baratto at Big Snuff Studio in Berlin. Birch found in Berlin that she could make music for art, not money, unlike New York, where she felt money was the driving force. Birch was struck by the openness and generosity of the musicians she met in Berlin who were friends and acquaintances of a new friend of hers, drummer Max Weissenfeldt, and she was able to rediscover her creativity. However, she still considers New York to be her home, needing to return even after needing to leave.
