about

DARK LIGHT
We are not here to be liked, we are here to be felt.

The EP Dark Light holds up a mirror in front of our faces. Having lived in Los Angeles, we have seen the Beauty & the Beast. Making a living on the street we do get in touch with every facets of life and people
We are at the pulse of people's day to day environment we pop up into their lives with music that rattles at the cage of a worried mind or caress a celebrating heart. We play music and invite to take a breather and enjoy music or dancing before returning to work .
The concept of the Dark speaks of what we have still created around us, and continue until we have turned our eyes inwards and illuminate the false identities that we are separated from each other, and have to protect from one another. Believing in order not to fall short we have to be bigger better, stronger, instead of more , empathetic ,forgiving and loving another form of living radically .
We are building walls, and we are spending money into defense we are invested in protection, we are guarding against fear, by promoting fear. Choosing fear to fight fear.
Dark light speaks of the relationship between the two Dark and Light, which stands for Fear and Love, which are the interplay of teaching the truth of our Human Nature: That we are whole, we are light , we are magnificent , we are unlimited, free , eternal pure consciousness.
We strongly believe that art is the teacher of both. Using art courageously, portraying both Darkness and Light despite social norm, or judgement – which art has never cared for , we get to transcend the darkness within ourselves and thus create with true seeing the world in front of us.
Dark Light is the ray of Light piercing into the depth of our shadow personas, healing our identity struggle being concerned what we think of one another.
When we play music on the street, people gather around to appreciate.
No sex, or status, no skin color or profession, commands our thinking. All of it stops for a second and we get to be with each other and connect. Random people, at a random time, at a random place. We feel a sense of belonging, realizing we have more things in common than we do not.
On the streets true meeting is possible : Strangers start dancing with one another
This spontaneous exchange is the currency of joy.
We believe that expressing our true Self radically by exercising vulnerability, openly, with no shame but celebration, letting our guards down, going past our comfort to judge always pretending that we know, we empower ourselves and others.

We want to advocate courage to expose first to ourselves who we really are and then demonstrate it to the world. As it has become an everyday practice for ourselves.
Dark Light speaks about the struggle of power in this world and that surrender our EGO may be a painful but true form of growth, as it seeks to embrace not conquers. We believe in the transformational power of art that unveils fearless the ugliness , the unwanted, the hidden, the shameful to show its teachings that when brought to the light, that no shadow can withstand.
Dark Light speaks of non judgement for what we judge we become ourselves. It’s the radical approach to exercise courage to be your true Self: Nude. Raw. Real.

we love to continue to share our music to connect to you!
Our contribution to the world is our new EP that we are extremely proud of and can’t wait to present it to you! THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT !

Track Name: Left Alone
Left Alone to gather pictures in my head

De-connected empty room I’ll be drowned the fish is dead

I use my voice to fill the voice control my shaking hand

Earth-mother take me home I put your name down in the sand

Sometimes I need your shoulder for throwing away my thoughts it feels colder

Left alone to gather pictures in my head, de-connected empty room I’ll be drowned the fish is

dead

Left alone to gather pictures in my head, de-connected empty room I’ll be drowned the fish is

dead

I addle my head all in booze running astray from place to place

Me down begging for truce when pain is real, when pain is real

Sometimes I need your shoulder for throwing away my thoughts it feels colder

Left alone to gather pictures in my head, de-connected empty room I’ll be drowned the fish is

dead

Left alone to gather pictures in my head, de-connected empty room I’ll be drowned the fish is

dead

I use my voice to fill the void control my shaking hand

Skin like paper my body numb is god the only one ?

Sometimes I need your shoulder for throwing away my thoughts it feels colder

Left alone to gather pictures in my head, de-connected empty room I’ll be drowned the fish is

dead

Left alone to gather pictures in my head, de-connected empty room I’ll be drowned the fish is

dead

Track Name: Faces
A californian drought by the sea

Believe it or not we came to feel

To live in a dead city ain’t so pretty

let it rain on our heads , let it rain on our face

I saw your face

Chorus

I see all of your faces

I see all of your faces

I see all of youuuu

Verse II

And we pray to the skyscrapers

May their gods come on down and help us

When the lords come and part us

And we pay the roads ahead us

Left a mark undone that scared us

Don’t be bought to be star

Liberate yourself and take a new start

I saw your face...

2x Chorus

I see all of your faces

I see all of your faces

C-Part:

2 x​ Don’t believe what you see, what they say, what they preach

It’s a dead city rising as we speak

A dead city rising as we speak

1x​Don’t believe what you see, what they say, what they preach

It’s a dead city rising as we speak

A dead city rising

Chorus

I see all of your faces

I see all of your faces

I see all of youuuu

Don’t believe what you see, what they say, what they preach

It’s a dead city rising as we speak, a dead city rising as we speak

Don’t believe what you see, what they say, what they preach

It’s a dead city rising as we speak, a dead city rising...

Track Name: Stretch Your Face
As a kid I wanted to turn to air when I was feeling scared

Then wished that I was inhaled by the seas and trees when they breath

And I knew they did not need to care

If the world that I wake up to is scared

Then I create my life from square one

Do you dare to walk ?

Foreign streets lead to foreign hearts

As a new day changed

As a new day starts

So don't forget and remind me that

Who has the power to protect has the power to attack

STRETCH YOUR FACE INTO THE SUN

FEAR CONTROLS WHEN LOVE LETS GO

CATCH THAT MOMENT WITH YOUR ARMS

ITS YOUR SOUL I WANT YOU TO KNOW

STRETCH YOUR FACE INTO THE SUN

FEAR CONTROLS WHEN LOVE LETS GO

WATCH THAT MOMENT WITH YOUR HEART YOUR SOUL YOU GOT TO KNOW

We got to take our power and find truth within

Thank fear for courage fuck original sin

And in this time of age

As we are modern slaves

I know it's hard to face

That our human race

Doesn't To find a place

In a love embrace

reward for hate becomes our golden cage

And I sing this song for this world to change

And I create a safe place for the wicked and the strange

DenManTau

All hands on deck

take this power back

And now that the kid grew up and came to understand

Life is the biggest dream in the palm of his hand

For everybody knows

When a bad time shows

laughter is medicine

So much more than a harlequin

And its better than it's ever been

By Paul Weber
Track Name: Moonchild
And in a deep night fall, I dreamed of kissing you...

A child of light in our wombs and with the moon

my dream goes vivid in circles,

Two hearts beating in my chest, I feed them poison from my breast.

I beat them in silence, beat them in silence

Two hearts beating in my chest, pounding restless and it’s best

To release them in silence, two violent lions

Chorus

Like a painter with no stains

His craft being made through his mistakes

Would you believe him that it rained?

So who is the ruler and who is to reign?

Like the Sinner needs the saints

Would you see no-one’s to blame

2 verse

Now hear the echo from my soul

Confusing words from wall to wall

In my heart you will bloom and with it soon

A moonchild is born in morning gloom

Two hearts beating in my chest, pounding restless and it’s best

To release them in silence, two violent lions

Chorus

like a painter with no stains

his craft being made through his mistakes

Would you believe him that it rained?

And who is the ruler and who is to reign?

Like the Sinner needs the saint

Would you see no-one’s to blame

C part

A moonchild, a moonchild

A moonchild, a moonchild

Chorus:

like a painter with no stains

his craft being made through his mistakes

Would you believe him that it rained?

And who is the ruler and who is to reign?

Like the Sinner needs the saint

Would you see no-one’s to blame

By Paul Weber
Track Name: This is For Lovers
Forever lovers

and since I came here I have my past passing me by

two boys in a bus on the way to school

Autumn leaves falling from the trees,

barefoot through woods, we beat it with one heart

two minds full of young crimes

this is for lover running away

red snakes around our necks

falling from the sky

I be the space shuttle in your blood

You took the lemon I took the shot

Because we fight when the music is out

we're running way, this is for lovers,

we're running away

Promises on the wall, took beer and a bath

Cheers to the morning, we never beat the sun

We stood in front of each other aiming with the gun

to claim back the promise

it took a hole in our chest

it took a hole in our chest

By Paul Weber
Track Name: You And Me
Verse I

I open wide my heart

love is true when love is felt

don’t hold back from the start

misery loves company and I am sad

Chorus

and its you and its me and its everyone

Crowded in my head

and it’s you and it’s me and it’s everyone

crowded in that space

Verse II

How many more miles and how many more years to go from here

Love is felt when ye love thyself

So I am put up against the wall

And its you and its me and its everyone crowded in my head

Extro

And it’s you and it’s me and its everyone

Falling from the grace

And it’s me and it’s you

Crowded in my in that space

And when the mind grips tight

And time gets loose

It’s you, and it’s me, its everyone

Falling from that grace

And its you and its me and its everyone

Crowded in my head in my head

I am in between the ebb and flow of all of you

But I remain the same

By Paul Weber
