“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
Full of beautiful melodies, emotions and some of the most soulful vocals, “Darling Ocean” is an EP most welcome for spending a cozy rainy day. There’s plenty of depth in each song for the heart, wonderful and pleasing instrumentation for ears and a serene sense for the mind.
“It’s our message to everyone out there to go for it’. It’s your life, live it your way, beat your own path, cos it’s all down to you at the end of the day. Nobody else will fight your fight the way you will.” Lapes (Andy)
Cold is the most personal song I’ve written. It came out of me when I was going through a tough time that resurrected a lot of the emotions I felt at the time of my parent’s divorce as a child. The experience is a huge part of who I am today and sharing how it still affects me it is an important part of showing the world who I am as an artist and connecting with my audience.
“Paper Tigers” is a sorrowful, indie pop lament remarking on the day-to-day stressors that consume one’s energy. The song was inspired by a recurring lucid dream that Kristina Westernik-Dandridge experiences, which comes to an abrupt end by walking through an imagined door, at which point she is suddenly startled back to reality.
“The Demon behind My Mind” deals with the fact that each one of us has its “demon” in his head and that there are situations that one would like to deal with differently in one’s imagination but cannot do so because of morals and conventions. But it is also a warning that not dealing with one’s demons or swallowing situations can at some point lead to psychological overload and a related freak-out.” – Ophelia’s Eye
