Notable Reviews-

Shenzhen, China (City Weekend)
"The earworms spun by Colin Phils are a comfortable mix of niche guitar-based rock and accessible indie with wide appeal - that both the casual listener and the math rock nerd can appreciate. "
www.cityweekend.com.cn/shenzhen/article/listen-colin-phils-full-length-exceeds-expectations

US Online (The Hook Magazine)
"Consider this "smart music," with lyrics to die for - instrumental moments to nod your head at, and a resumé that is only moving skyward. Colin Phils is an exciting addition to Hook Approved bands, and e,r,som,sa... is a technical, touching album full of quietude, ambiance, and sharp hooks to fall in love with."

Hong Kong (The Underground HK)
"e, r, som, sa... is shown to be at home in an instant. Colin Phils’ latest album is introduced with a Chinese hymn-like song, flowing seamlessly amongst the bustling street sounds of Shenzhen. "

Track Name: Moonstone
I walk around this empty room, it’s still whispering of you
If this is bad then we don’t know what that is
But I think we can pull through
Pull through
I didn’t know, I didn’t know, I didn’t know, I didn’t know
That I could fall this hard.
I didn’t know, I didn’t know, I didn’t know, I didn’t know
5 months seems so long
I didn’t know, I didn’t know, I didn’t know, I didn’t know
That you could steal my heart
I didn’t know, I didn’t know, I didn’t know, I didn’t know
That you could steal my hearts…
I, I, I, I, I, I ,I
I’ve got a stone from the moon
Track Name: Time Well Wasted
I found the right way; I found the right way, woah
I found the right way, but I don’t think I can go
Faster, and faster and faster And faster we go nowhere

I’m not the perfect one, the one that I thought I could be, no
So I’m stuck in a rut that fits perfectly just you and me, oh

Cause nowhere with you is better than somewhere alone
I found the right, I found the right way
I just can’t go, I just can’t go
Track Name: I Think Your Name is a Good One
I think your name is a good one, I think your name is as good as it gets
Cause sons you look like me, Alive and well and free, living a life you should lead

I think your name is a good one, I think your name is as good as it gets
Cause daughters you look like me, Alive and well and free, living a life you should lead
Am I deserving of your love?
Am I deserving of your love? I think yes
Even if I always seems I always make a mess

Am I deserving of your love? I think yes
Is he deserving of your love? I think yes
Is SHE deserving of your love? I think yes
Are we deserving of your love? I think yes

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Track Name: To The Sand
I’m sure the body doesn’t mind a little bit of change, in this
I’m sure the water doesn’t mind, taking all your filth
All, your filth
I’m sure the body doesn’t mind a little bit of change, in this
I’m sure the water doesn’t mind, taking all your filth
All, your filth
And you owe it to the sand, and the distances you ran
If you trust in me, if you trust in me, if you trust in my friend
I’m sure the body doesn’t mind a little bit of change, in this
(You’ll never know until you try, change is waiting on the other side)
I’m sure the water doesn’t mind, taking all your filth
(You’re too scared to go alone, I say turn around and look at all the feet that follow)
And you owe it to the sand, and the distances you ran
You’re on your way
And you owe it to the sand
Track Name: Don Cabs
Season
And we might change our minds and leave it all behind
The season
And we might change our minds and leave it all behind
Whooo!
Track Name: Happy Clapper
I just got out in the nick of time
Before it all got weird and brainwashed my mind
It’s light it’s happy, but no one’s laughing here
The ones I love are stuck in fear, in fear, I fear
Yeah I fear, stuck in fear
I just can’t wait till it all comes to an end,
and we will see just where we will stand
Track Name: Best Foot Forward
I tried to put my best foot forward, but it ended up in my mouth
I tried to play my cards so perfectly, but they ended up on the ground
Now I’m worried where my feet my take me, and they just might let me down
Let me down…
They let me down
Let me down, they let me down
Woah
I tried to put my best foot forward, but it ended up in my mouth
I tried to play my cards so perfectly, but they ended up on the ground
Now I’m worried where my feet my take me, and they just might let me down
Let me down, they let me down
My vantage point is changing now, now that I’m on this cold hard ground
I clear my head to process now, now that I’m on this cold hard ground
Oh, I am down, I am down, my perspective is changing now
Now that I’m down
My vantage point is changing now, now that I’m on this cold hard ground
I clear my head to process now, now that I’m on this cold hard ground
My vantage point is changing now, now that I’m on this cold hard ground
