    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.

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
