about

“Wu-hai” EP, it will collect three songs led by double drums rhythm and collaborate experimental sound and psychedelic rock. It will be a brand new record and jam session work fully composed by complete story concept.

-

“Shapeless Beast” starts from the lo-fi drone sound. A door of certain consciousness seems open in the dream. “Moon” Leading by two drums and a flute and collaborating with guitars and synthesiser, a man and a woman are chanting together a short poem searching and going forwards from their individual mist paths.

After entering “Eyewood”, as falling into a reddish lake, a drum beat suddenly penetrates into the second level of consciousness. Being dizzy consistently and dancing at the same place, a unique rhythm with a strong tribal drum beats and fuzz guitar provides a special trippy ambience.

Withdrawn from the clear rainy “Callous”, contemplate with open eyes, emotions calm down gradually and stories are ready to go to the end.

Lastly it comes to the title rhythm “Wu-Hai”. Tapping finely and following the bell ring, we sing softly and seem to be ready to get up and step out slowly, lightly and assertively. Feedback sounds and folk funeral melody of Taiwan are unceasingly playing. Filled with consciousness and memories, we watch the dead doing his last lingering around the border, farewell to the dead and enter the void which end the stories just like that of “Travel Elegy” written by Wislawa Szymborska.

-

The EP derives from the stories of aboriginals and also life experience of Prairie WWWW‘s members. By three-phase ceremonies – searching, involvement and recurrence, this journey is so written through deep profound introspection and reminiscence.

Track Name: 月亮 Moon
躺在晨曦裡
成為新的你
站在星辰裡
尋找我

昨晚我帶著夢到另一個夢
提著夢深呼吸
提著夢深呼吸
Track Name: 眼林 Eyewood
想像我是一隻鳥
想像我是一隻鳥

群離開了體
我漫步在白色眼林
不時而來的
黑色罩幕
領著沒有人

在夢裡看不見那紅色的湖

樹林間有一個聲音
Track Name: 霧海 Wu-Hai
遠方風吹著浪
看著耳後的夕陽
你在魚群中哭泣
隨著海潮流浪

我們圍成一圈
漸入佳境
通向烏有
