Talk To Me 02:59
No-one trembles here but me Embroidered are the many memories I hear your voice but your face I cannot see We chose a path so complex Both foolish and amazing to the rest I wanna talk, I want you to talk to me My heart beats inside the dial-tone In the void I build for us a home I dream of you, with the sun you melt like snow Your eyes open as I close the day So many things I wait to say I wanna talk, I want you to talk to me After the last curtain call Will we feel like we have said it all? I’ll just wanna talk and want you to talk to me
All of this time turns to tape on the reel Trying to make sense of the things that I feel The moon will still be there, with or without me To stand underneath and speak of its beauty Give to me burdens and give to me rest Life brings me both and I bring my best I will come weary with strength of my own To walk beside others on our way home Look under the bonnet and inside the case Call down the prophet, look into her face Wrestle the question and let it all go Dig in the dirt for what I already own
Less Lost 03:14
The ties of the city loosen on leaving Something that’s wild calls out in our breathing The rush of the river rounding the bend races my heart No more time to pretend Together we’re getting less lost as we go If we walk ‘til tomorrow we’ll find our way home The sun drinks the mist away from the trees Difference dissipates from you and me Our bodies lie closer in a soft crush Two fresh coffees in two tin cups Together we’re getting less lost as we go If we walk ‘til tomorrow we’ll find our way home Again and again we will learn to be kind This pretty much happens to us every time I’m on a high and you’re going low Somehow, someway, we converge as we go Now you’re heading up and I’m coming ‘round The peak doesn’t look so impossible now Together we’re getting less lost as we go If we walk ‘til tomorrow we’ll find our way home Again and again we will learn to be kind This pretty much happens to us every time
Forget It 02:19
I don’t really want to do this anymore And I don’t wanna blame you for it at all I wish I could forget it I don’t really know why you said those words And looking in from this side it’s still absurd I wish I could forget it I know that we promised to co-exist But I know what I need now and it isn’t this I wish I could forget it
The Key 03:04
Lean into me and just let go Let doubts fade out, let love take hold Make me feel safe, let me be free Make this the place we want to be Inside a dream my body shakes You’re the one thing when I awake I feel your breath warm in my ear You’re breathing slow, you pull me near Your hands are warm wrapped around mine When worries swarm I hold you tight You waited way outside your pride There’s nothing now we have to hide We saw a fox on our first night We heard an owl call and take flight It’s not a story anymore We got the key to our front door



A farm in the middle of nowhere. Sixty Spanish horses. And two songwriters from opposite sides of the world, strangers with the same destiny... The critically acclaimed songwriters Lydia Cole (New Zealand) and Hailey Beavis (Scotland) were dropped in a retirement home for old horses by the Barcelona based label Son Canciones. They were given one week to get to know each other and write and record five new songs.

Only solar power was used in the making of this EP. The songs were recorded mostly in one take and without special effects. Straight from the soil into your headphones.

Lydia Cole is a singer-songwriter from Kingsland, New Zealand, currently residing in Berlin. In 2017 she released her second studio album "The Lay Of The Land", receiving raving reviews from both press and listeners. She has toured extensively around Europe, Australia and New Zealand over the past years and was nominated for the APRA Silver Scroll Awards in 2017.

Hailey Beavis has been Edinburgh's best-kept secret for a couple of years. This young singer-songwriter and graphic artist is an active part of Scotland's independent scene. In 2018 she co-founded her own record label OK Pal Records.

Previous Among Horses releases featured Withered Hand-A Singer Of Songs, Zoe Boekbinder-Dustin Hamman & Haley Heynderickx-Max García Conover.
