This release is Fringe Mellows first collaboration with River Suite Orchestra. It was always a dream of Henry’s (FM Producer) to have one of his productions transcribed into a live strings arrangement. Inspired by early dance classics “Soul II Soul” and the likes of “Yo Yo Honey” and combining this with the likes of Moby & The Streets the River Suite Orchestra without a doubt enhances the production of the Fringe Mellow sound and compliments the emotion of the lyrics. The pressures of lock down in 2020 really inspired lance (singer/songwriter) to contemplate the information he was taking in, resulting in the conversation that this song presents.
Shadows is a song about how we strive to fit in and reject what's incorrect. Is it better to be quiet or to talk openly about our vulnerabilities and our incorrect nature and views? Do we create an audience for ourselves online of likeminded people banding together to no longer tolerate people that don’t have this like-mindedness?. This song says we stand behind each other when we share the same views but when someone has a different view do we stand by them then?
Empty Room is a song about looking for inspiration and not being able to find it.

No More Favours is a song about recognizing your impact on a person and it’s negative effects.

When You Leave Me Alone is an anxious expression of insecurity you might feel when you no longer trust your own thoughts about where you stand with someone. This song is kind of about the feeling you might get when you are being ghosted.
Everybody has some sort of desire to be acknowledged even for the little things we do for each other. This is a love song saying don’t overlook what we have right here. Although it might seem light weight and is what we have everyday, it’s beautiful none the less. Are we here to make an impact or are we here to comfort one another while the world makes an impact.?
We often go to our friends for reassurance that we are not alone with our struggles. ‘My Lens’ is a metaphor for how we relate to each other through understanding each others struggles.
