Until the Day 作曲:杨帆/刘舸 作词:杨帆 Now I'm feeling so sad and can't stop to cry I just can't stop crying in front of you If someone (looks) like you just makes me hurt Into my dream with your yellow wings It's such hurt, I can't deny it Why I always fall in love with someone (who looks) like you? And I want to be a better person than that Until Until Until the day you're going away When you kiss me with your diamond ring, inside my dream Bring me away with your yellow wings Only someone (looks) like you just makes me feel I can almost trust you once again Oh it's such hurt, what shall we do?

03 Little Medicine Girl 作曲:杨帆/ 刘舸 作词:杨帆 Sweet sweet wasted day Sunshine in her face and we laughed I touched her hair and I kissed her lips I just want to be, be with her But she always wants some more (little medicine girl) Sweet sweet wasted day Moonlight is waiting for her to rise I asked her to dance, she said: yes And we’ll laugh at the moonlight dance She said: Tell me why the day is so warm? Why the day’s so wasted and soft She said: Tell me why the day is so warm? Why the day’s so wasted and soft Sweet sweet wasted day The sun comes up ’til the sun goes down We stayed in her room all night long Just don’t know what can I do after she said She said: Tell me why the day is so warm?

07 Twice Lost Woman 作曲:杨帆 作词:刘舸 There was a woman who was still a little girl, When she got home from a long time away She discovered she was lost where she should have been found, again and again This is not her world, she doesn’t even have a home, anymore Her boyfriend kicked her out, it’s the first time she’s been so down and out, but she’s free again and again She has nothing since she left her life behind Now she is in an unknown place As the darkness gets closer day by day She wants to use this time to live, like there’s no more day There’s no need to worry, there’s no more day, for this twice lost woman She wants to use this time to live, like there’s no more day There’s no need to worry, there’s no more day, for this twice lost woman Twice lost woman Remember this twice lost woman Do remember her name She was named by her mother up above She was named by the lost game 制作人:Ricky Maymi 录音和混音:杨帆 母带:Garrett Haines 主唱:刘舸 吉他、键盘、采样、电鼓、合声:杨帆

about

If I’m In Love With You for the first time collects TOW’s compositions in a stab at putting this mercurial and intoxicating dual energy on record. It’s a semi-narrative fairy tale probing dark, del-icate depths. You can hear traces of each artist's former bands throughout the album — Ourself Beside Me in the intricate guitar melody and low-key bossa-nova beat kicking off the title track, The Molds in closer “Twice Lost Woman,” a spoken-word dirge with lyrics written by Liu Ge and delivered in his unmistakable baritone.

But Yang & Liu lock together in a unique way as TOW, a special mix cohering on sonically dense, thudding tracks like the synth-led, poetically opaque mid-album cut “Behind the Sun.” If I’m In Love With You seems to tell a story, but details are hard to decipher. Lyrics can be haunt-ingly dark, as on “Sugar Daddy”; reflectively venomous, as on “Shitty Hand”; deceptively escapist, as on “Little Medicine Girl.” Dream-state psychology permeates the album, giving it a sticky mys-ticism, an unflinching inward gaze. “Into my dream with your yellow wings,” Yang Fan sings on the mournful and plaintive “Until the Day,” a gripping meditation on rejection. If I’m In Love With You is, ultimately, a conditional statement, a floating point of reference that engrosses with its mature vision, exquisitely articulated sonic textures, and evocative lyrical imagery.

TOW is the duo of Yang Fan and Liu Ge, two pioneers of Beijing underground music. Yang initial-ly carved a space for herself in Beijing’s late ‘90s punk scene as a teenager. As she matured as a musician, she led her own group, Ourself Beside Me, releasing a seminal document of the mid-’00s Beijing rock scene in their self-titled 2009 album. Ourself Beside Me often shared the stage with Liu’s psych-tinged rockabilly group, The Molds, who released one EP in their initial run, 2008’s ironically titled A Cowboy Never Saw A Horse.

In the years since, both artists have remained important fixtures in Beijing’s creative scene. Yang has been active as both a musician and producer, pursuing her own singular vision while sharing expertise with a younger generation of experimental rockers like Chui Wan. Liu has been a steady presence at underground record shop and gig spot fRUITYSPACE, re-forming The Molds and releasing the band’s first official studio album in 2018 via the affiliated Spacefruity Records label.

fRUITYSPACE also published an art book of Yang Fan’s drawing, and has served as an im-portant breeding ground for TOW. Melding a shared interest in spartan, haunting, sometimes deeply dark, always pervasively psychedelic electro-rock, TOW is a meeting of two of Beijing’s most consistently interesting and idiosyncratic creative figures, two living legends of the scene.

TOW formed in 2016, and grew sporadically over the next few years, making occasional live ap-pearances at underground spaces and art events. They describe their own music as “something you can't put into words,” expressed via “a variety of instruments.”
