about

Hi everyone. The songs in this collection were conceived during the last "Year of the Ox". Both Zoë and I were born in an Ox year and since then, each one that rolls around has always been a year of life changing forward movement. This last one brought to us our first child and with her came new ideas, a different sense of purpose, responsibility and, loads and loads of beautiful melodies that just landed on our laps; each melody, neatly packaged in a specific musical style. We honored their uniqueness and set forth recording. Along the way, many friends who also happened to be great musicians and songwriters collaborated and contributed to the making of each song. All of us watched in awe as time passed and Zoë's belly grew whilst she sang these songs.

Unable to control ourselves, hastily we released each song, the moment they were finished. Different cover art for each, some had videos some didn't. But we were just so excited, each song was different in every way from the last. The only commonality among them was that we had created them and Zoë was singing.

Time has passed, our family has grown and with our son's arrival returned those same senses as before and as you might have guessed; another lap full of music.

As Bob Marley once sang, "In this great future, you can't forget your past."

And so with that reminder, we are honoring these songs by presenting them to you, together as the "Year of the Ox" EP. So put on your favorite headphones and let us take you away to a place with only one rule, enjoy the ride.

-Angel

Track Name: Stride
i know which way to go, been here some times before, take the first step out
the stage is all a mess, i feel i’m over dressed, eyes scan me for clout

i’m taking it all in stride
keeping it all in line
nothing at all can hide your love

take off and run the world, believe in me the girl who never needs your help
i read between the lines, unlike those other times, i can see myself

i’m taking it all in stride
keeping it all in line
nothing at all can hide your love

i’m taking it all in stride
keeping it all in line
nothing at all can hide your love

i’m taking it all, i’m taking it
i’m keeping it all i’m keeping it
there’s nothing at all, there’s nothing

i’m taking it all, i’m taking it
i’m keeping it all i’m keeping it
there’s nothing at all inside my love

i’m taking it all in stride
keeping it all in line
nothing at all can hide your love

i’m taking it all in stride
keeping it all in line
nothing at all can hide your love
Track Name: Sunshine
we’re all out looking for something when other things jump in the way
seems like whenever i wanna speak up i can’t find the right words to say
taking it back to the old days, when our mothers could soothe all our fears
trying to find what was left way behind in the tumbling surf of our tears

in the darkest night there is a light it’s the sunshine you’re my sun
in the darkest night there is a light it’s the sunshine you’re my sun
you were the one to catch me, you were the one to lead me here
you were the one to catch me, you were the one to lead me here

i saw it play like a movie, a man at the end of his line
couldn’t see all the love there could be if he only gave it more time
cling to the days we were open, unaware of the judgemental eyes
if only our lives could embrace all the times we blindly accepted the lies

in the darkest night there is a light it’s the sunshine you’re my sun
in the darkest night there is a light it’s the sunshine you’re my sun
you were the one to catch me, you were the one to lead me here
you were the one to catch me, you were the one to lead me here

you lead me here, you lead me here, you lead me here, you lead me here

in the darkest night there is a light it’s the sunshine you’re my sun
in the darkest night there is a light it’s the sunshine you’re my sun
in the darkest night there is a light it’s the sunshine you’re my sun
in the darkest night there is a light it’s the sunshine you’re my sun
Track Name: Make It Happen
“MAKE IT HAPPEN”

even the rain can’t undo the hills and the seeds we put down
knowing the sun will shine through, keeps all the blue from turning brown
leaving it whole, taking control, fighting for souls but now i’ve got to go

you can make it happen right now, if you only know how
you can make it happen right now

meeting between me and you, can’t understand the tones of love
always thought we could break through, but you held on tight to your glove
letting it go, your innocence thrown away now alone before you have even grown

you can make it happen right now, if you only know how
you can make it happen right now, if you only know how
you can make it happen right now, if you only know how
you can make it happen right now...

letting it go, your innocence thrown away now alone before you have even grown


you can make it happen right now, if you only know how
you can make it happen right now, if you only know how
you can make it happen right now, if you only know how
you can make it happen right now...
Track Name: Runaway
close your eyes tight but in the night the images they come
watching the past, slow and then fast, until they build too much
anxiety, it’s hard to breathe so you put a strong foot down
it’s time to deal but the fear is real so you need to hold your ground

you can’t runaway, you can’t runaway, you can’t runaway
even when you know

talking to friends, advice that depends on the position of the stars
you know what to do, it’s all up to you, time to soften up your scars
unimaginable the strings to pull in order to move on
it’s all inside and you leave with your pride, a bit smaller but wiser all along

you can’t runaway, you can’t runaway, you can’t runaway
even when you know
you can’t runaway, you can’t runaway, you can’t runaway
even when you know

just when you think you’ll fail, omens and signs will find you
take that advice you’ll find the lessons that you’ve learned already there

you can’t runaway, you can’t runaway, you can’t runaway
even when you know

you can’t runaway, you can’t runaway, you can’t runaway
even when you know
you can’t runaway, you can’t runaway, you can’t runaway
even when you know
