"For me, it's a revolution in every way. I've been hiding my dream and hiding my voice for so long, letting trauma and illness run my life story, this song is the end of that and a beginning of an era of beautiful music and powerful messages that need to be heard. Pink for My Money is about my pain and confusion around growing up as women at this point in time." Shyli Madhala
"I wrote it in the midst of lockdown, craving the outside world and normality as a whole (as everyone was) and just went from there!

Nadia Moon
“In this track I'm actually mixing music different styles. The melody and lyrics belong to a Catalan folk song (El Poder del Cant) written a few centuries ago by an anonymous writer.” - Mireia Carbonell, arranger from Periscopi Invertit
The record was written while I was in isolation with my girlfriend in Newport, Rhode Island during 2020. I then brought the album home to a desolate new york city as a vast amount of people have left the city during the pandemic. Jannek

Curiosity, is a song that discusses how society attempts (perhaps unknowingly) to kill a child's curiosity as they simultaneously force maturity upon them. Despite the seemingly negative description, it is a positive and thoughtful introspection on curiosity and how it brings beauty and joy into our lives. Curiosity reinforces the importance of self expression and individuality.
