NOYZ 1st VERSE: Summertime ‘97, Jordan with 5 titles the same summer that Bret won it, we prize idols and debate them with rivals over games of Griffey throwing slang that we gained from Biggie and playing Missy in my headphones peddling past the blacktop where the ball players would catch props the backdrop’s full of kids who were developing fast the last innocence left, the world opened up in front of my steps I press forward, Fall ‘17, never evergreen mom grew a tumor and it blew up with a head of steam stage 4, now we wage war, brace for the worst that gave all the hurt and takes more made sure that she raised from the base floor learning to eat, learning to speak, learning to breathe and through it all, never had the burden to grieve and stayed strong through the turning of leaves for all seasons SD HOOK: through all of the seasons we go through hard times live for the good days learn from the cold nights NOYZ 2nd VERSE: We buried him in the cold of February in the loss of the physical, souls are never varying I closed and I carried his casket gathered the past into the mind, trying to battle attachment my grandfather left us, before he body rested on the stretchers already lost the mental, saw what death is and so he died alone in his last few years we know the ending but we never see the path too clear so while we’re here, we all try to work through pain was scared of love until I found one who hurts the same where the rain pouring is warming the Spring from the Winter acknowledging the bags that we bring when we enter but trying to lighten the load the bloom coming right from the rose and both moving with life as it flows and grow choosing to never let the reasons wane by your side as the skies and the seasons change SD BRIDGE: all alone. winter came built a fire to fuel my flame planted seeds to bloom in spring felt glory when summer came i was shining shining shining

SD HOOK: in the dark when i need light true colours shine so bright i see them i see them i see from afar i see them i see them i let go or hold on SD 1st VERSE: dime a dozen fish in the sea not everybody is worthy of a lead in your story pick them carefully time will tell their integrity observe their energy beware of the ones who leech who take more than they receive HOOK NOYZ BRIDGE: When light fades, i find sight as They're showing the colors that shine brightest And like waves i weather the storm My light sees yours And in life's detours Where the lesson is drawn SD 2nd VERSE: i don’t trust when they get close quick they always want something take advantage of my kindness i’ve been naive love is so blind to the way they lie mama told me once mama told me twice don’t bring them home til their truth shows no word is gold words are not enough judge their actions conviction of their hugs HOOK NOYZ BRIDGE

about

Noyz and Selena Dhillon created their two-track EP as an expression of strength and growth through adversity.

Inspired by nature, jazz, and boom bap ‘So Below’ is an exploration of the relationship with the self and with others by going beneath the surface to heal and rising above to connect with those who have experienced the same. With balance, the two lyricists walk through the seasons, the dark hours, the light, love, loss and triumphs as the music ultimately celebrates lessons learned.

Both friends and frequent collaborators, ‘So Below’ marks the first joint project by Noyz and Selena Dhillon and features production from Edmonton-based beatmaker tkdwn and Noyz himself. In their solo careers, the two have performed on stages across North America and the UK, and have been featured on notable platforms such as Noisey, The Huffington Post, TIFF, Complex, CBC Music, BBC Radio and GQ.
