"So, Pairs was a band in Shanghai, China that died around 2014 when their drummer (me) went back home to Australia. They did a whole bunch of shit, a whole bunch of shows, a whole bunch of bridge building and a whole bunch of emailing sending. They played with good heads, bad heads, young heads and old heads.

This album was written when I was really over China after living there for 6 years, but I’d already bought my plane ticket. So it was this weird mix of being able to look back on what I’d done in a totally foreign land, having arrived knowing no-one and then on the other hand, being so burnt out by the pollution and life in general that I was ready to leave at any moment.

A massive thanks to Gerpfast Koletif for reaching out and being super cool.

Due to muscle memory, we still check the band email, so hit us up if you want:

We thank everyone for almost everything." - Xiao Zhong (Rhys)
