    Portraits is a serie of imaginary stories that emerge from our experience as Hong Kong residents. It embraces contrasting characters... a middle age man, a six year old kid. Each song represents one piece of a big puzzle: the face of what Hong Kong is to us. Life here is a drama of an ancestral life structure struggling with the western post modern crisis. We start with a dissertation about immigration and we close with the face of the ambition. The sound of this EP glides from nostalgic to dramatic moments, all dressed with the strident electronic layers and the glimpse of string sections.

    We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making this album !

    Recorded in Taipei; it will be released in a physical and digital version this March.

Track Name: Wild Eyes
Head down, wake up, you're alone, face it don't look back

Walk in line, wait your turn, you're a number more in this town

Shut up-turn around, shut up-walk around

You're a face drowning in this giant mask



Wild eyes, wet back

You're a prey trapped in this border line

Black eyed, round thighs

You're the girl hiding under pink lights



Stay calm, wake up, you're recalling much, don't cry

Shut up- keep hide, shut up-don't breath loud

You're a ghost drowning in a giant boat

The power of goodbye
Track Name: Alive
Every night I wonder what is there?
a thousand bones buried in the ground
Every single face reminds me how
two hands... embrace the ground

Didn’t you feel alive?
when you fear

All the answers are so simple now
Afraid of my fears, afraid of myself

Would you feel alive?
When they’re here
Track Name: In the Shadows
Things could get over
You’re the guy who won
the respect from others and you got no choice
I can wait ‘till you’re under but I’m moving so slow
That’s the plot of the story
of the guy who once won

See the face of this liar
it could turn into your voice
hold my hands, tear my tired ropes
‘cause this life it’s just wrong

I can wait here away in the shadows
I can stay here away in the shadows
Track Name: I Want It All
I want it all, I want to complete my goals,
I want it all, I want to complete my promise of...
Be owner of all my time, become a complete soul.

I'm willing to, I'm playing all alone,
With my precious time
I wanted all, I want to complete myself, in this silly life.

I wanted all, I want to transform the water in wine.
I want it all, I want to forgive mistakes and all your failures...
Before I could hate them more.

I want it all, I want to complete myself alone in my precious time,
I want it all, I want to destroy your name and all, all the fake around
