  • -‘A Tale of Fate’ asks the question ‘Is love coincidental or tied to something greater than ourselves?’. A particular greek myth inspired this song. It tells the story of Zeus splitting soul mates in two, as he was fearful of their power together. From there, these two entities would spend their lives trying to find their ‘other half’. The sound and subject matter of the song combine dreamy, ethereal vocals with groovy instrumentation, as the narrator navigates the eternal question: Is love ‘A Tale of Fate’.

  • Written & Directed by Kay Iris… ‘Dead Man Walking’ is a cinematic, story driven song, following the last days of a remorseful outlaw running from justice. The style of the song was inspired by Quentin Tarantino soundtracks as well as old Spaghetti Western scores by Sergio Leone.
