Stand Up 03:32
You count every minute That passes on without a thrill You’re reaching your limit The hours go by and you are still Lost, inside a dream No one to hold on to but me You know you need to Stand up stand up Don’t wait up wait up Baby you know you need to get up get up Right now Now it’s time to Stand up stand up And make a change Don’t wait up wait up Baby you know you need to get up get up Right now right now Someone said that you’ll be never, good enough Strong enough to turn your life around (turn your life around) But you know better, you can’t let her, put you down It’s been so long just bury these words to the ground and stop feeling Lost, inside a dream With no one to hold But me You know you need to Stand up stand up Don’t wait up wait up Baby you know you need to get up get up Right now Now it’s time to Stand up stand up And make a change Don’t wait up wait up Baby you know you need to get up get up Right now right now Right now right now Right now right now

You stand here beside me and it feels like no one’s there It is strange We both tell lies, break promises and play the game We never change I know it’s hard Stay with me, be patient Hold me close, don’t let go Tangled so deep in a web that we both create No escape I gave you a promise, my baggage won’t get in our way But I’m afraid I know we make it hard Stay with me, be patient Hold me close, don’t let go Stay with me, be patient Hold me close, don’t let go

Second Guess 03:15
Looking all around me Sleepless till the dawn Questions swirl inside me I hit the ground and struggling to break through Frames of dreams that came and gone Scattered in the dark Roads and turns I didn't take The choices that I made have left a mark If I could take a different way Would I be the same If I could travel back in time I'd do it all again There's someone laying beside me I used to make him laugh Desires and dreams are crumbling all around him No matter what I do is not enough If I could take a different way Would I be the same If I could travel back in time I'd do it all again If I could take a different way Would I be the same If I could travel back in time I'd do it all again Looking all around me Sleepless till the dawn

These Days 03:15
Your life is calling And you are all in You play a hand you can’t be sure you’ll win Although you woke up Your mind feels broken In pieces that are scattered all around Spend this day with no ifs or buts People might think you just went nuts Just don’t forget that people can be wrong Start each day like it’s something new Like your dream was already true Don’t waste the time you have in doubts or fears These days Are the ones worth living These days These days These days Are the ones worth living These days These days There will be bad days But you will find ways To get through them and then be truly free When you have bad days And things hit you sideways Remember all you faced, how far you’ve come Spend this day like it’s something new Like your dream was already true Don’t waste the time you have in doubts or fears Forgive yourself and forget the past That’s the way to feel free at last Don’t spend a minute worrying, it’s a waste These days Are the ones worth living These days These days These days Are the ones worth living These days These days Are the ones worth living These days These days These days Are the ones worth living Are the ones worth living

about

‘Hold Me Close’ is our third EP. When we write songs, we are allowing ourselves to be guided by our current state of mind and the way that we are experiencing music, instead of worrying about the final result or sticking into a specific genre.
There is bottomless discovery, storytelling, and enjoyment to be found in exploring and combining new sounds and styles. This has become our mantra over the past releases and this EP is no different.

Additionally, in this EP we wanted to record more organic sounds, where the human element is dominant, and we had the pleasure to collaborate with some amazing musicians that are featured in three of the songs. Owen Smalley, Alex Bramwell and Argyris Thomoglou have been a breath of fresh air and brought new life to what was born in our home studio.

Although all the songs live in a very similar space, they highlight different musings about what is happening around us. In a year haunted by the pandemic, our emotional state as human beings was changing rapidly from one day to the next. We had the privilege to integrate all our emotions and thoughts, whether they were melancholic or joyful in the lyrics, instrumentation, and trajectory of each song. We hope that the listeners can come on a journey with us, interpret the songs in their own way and give them new meaning.
