All music and lyrics were written by Belau, except the songs featuring a vocalist, which were written by Belau and their beloved guest.
Belau shared on social media, “We gave our heart and soul to each and every moment of creating this LP and we feel very grateful to share it with You.”
- The duo explained track-by-track for the album.
“Through the song, we were trying to capture individual milestones of existence – isolation to freedom, solitude to interaction. Reaching out for the 'Essence' is something that worth fighting for.”
“Risk It All”
“Have you ever been in a situation when you have risked it all? Have you ever made a step towards yourself, or leave on a path, what you have been always feared. 'Risk It All' is a song of the possibility.”
“A song that has received a new meaning during the lockdown by enlighting the real priories of our lives, that we are not living by in our so-called normal circumstances.”
“An Ocean With No Waves”
“In the lyrics of 'An Ocean With No Waves', we tried to balance between the two different layers of the song: on one hand there was Yas' sentimental and outstanding personage, on the other hand the ever-growing message of Belau.”
“This song is written as a wish to put an end to blind toil and to forcing things through without taking the signals of your body or your surroundings into to consideration. The song expresses a longing to unfold life in a completely different way that is more free, open, self-loving and enjoyable – in large and small as well.”
“The song is a picture painted by our inner-self; a journey to the inside where we are able to see the truth between the never-ending struggles to finally find peace.”
“'Natural Pool' is the symbol of a place or goal, which you would like to really achieve, but there're just few people, who can reach it. If you can make it, you'll experience new dimensions of freedom and bliss, which could be life changing.”
“A song about the desire, which a so-called own of the human nature. It's a gradual step by step distancing from these, the letting go of the burdens, the recalculation of the self and the righteous way of using our desires.”
“The chronicle of the arrival. Saya Noé is a fascinating talent, we have to calculate her in the future as one of the top upcoming underground female artists.”
“It's a mosaic word which means Best Escape Anyone Can Have, what reflects to the secrets of the Belau world. The other instrumental song from the album which contains some self-recorded tunes from the Caribbeans as well.”
“LIKE NO OTHER LOVE”
“The woman with a thousand faces has created a unique vibe on the instrumental by her voice and the ever longing lyrics about eternal love. Pink has been chosen for the song and in this case there were no questions.”
“The first track that has been debuted from the album. We should consider this one as a station between our first and our second full-length. It is about redefining the self.”
