about

This EP really started coming together in May 2013, after I had returned to Thunder Bay for the summer. I always find that having a band encourages much more music to be written. The final product here is a result of writing collaboratively with some talented friends in a pretty wretched jam space. Thanks to you all!

Xander John Scott London, Ontario

There is so much potential in everything and Xander is determined to prove it with songs that show the brighter side of the story. Xander's brand of alternative pop music is influenced by the honest harmonies of Said the Whale, the subtle inconsistencies of Mother Mother and the smooth textures of Tokyo Police Club. ... more

Track Name: The Well
If there’s not something in the air, then fill your lungs with all that you can bare.
When all there’s to feel is nothing but the cold, keep on waiting for warmer hands to hold.

I’ve sat around enough, looking out at what’s been going on.
The potential there was to run has, moved on long ago.
But maybe it’s time to start again.
Maybe I’ve got another chance.
This year’s coming to an end
And the next one’s here.

Here to bring some cheer.
Here to push us on.

From the bottom of the well,
There was another turning point.
From the bottom of the well I crawled,
Out to come back.

Couldn’t wait for the snow to fall. Wouldn’t care if it did now anyhow.
No reason’s left to believe that, this is all over today.
We’ve got time now to sort it out.
Time to figure out a better plan.
This year’s coming to an end
But the next one’s here.

Here to bring some cheer.
Here to push us on.

From the bottom of the well,
There was another turning point.
From the bottom of the well I crawled,
I crawled,
Out to come back.

To a life that lives up, to these expectations
They say it’s really not that hard.
Cuz I feel it now, coming to open up my heart.

If there’s not something in the air,
fill your lungs with all that you can bare.

From the bottom of the well,
There was another turning point.
From the bottom of the well I crawled,
I crawled,
Out to come back.
Track Name: Ready To Ignite
I know it's not always nice, to go make a lot of noise when,
All these men they hold out, for that perfect wife.

Inside the book of love, there's no point looking above the clouds to see,
where beauty could be.
Pick up on the obvious signal, for something that's worth the time,
Oh so easy to tell, when it's going well.

Just try to stay on the Earth.
It's not that far to another start.

Our lives are ready to ignite, create a new hope at the site,
It's not an option just to let this go by.

There couldn't be more than one, option to go from here,
with everything, that's come into play.
Keep up with the likelier signals, expanding on what's gone right,
Oh it's never that wise, to turn down a surprise.

Just try to stay on the Earth.
There's so much more, left to give away.

Our lives are ready to ignite, create a new hope at the site,
It's not an option just to let this go by.

This game takes patience, more than it's good for,
but no one ever puts it down.
The winners always cheat there way out,
from staying in the circle.

We know where your heart goes, when it's older and disguised.

Our lives are ready to ignite, create a new hope at the site,
It's not an option just to let this go by.
Our lives are ready to ignite, create a new hope at the site,
It's not an option just to let this go by.
Track Name: There Must Be More
They say there's something in the water that, can make an artist out of anyone, who cares to dream.
Stop hiding everything you love so dearly, it's time to share it without losing your mind.

This pressure's been building no time to waste.

We've all got art to share, no point in hiding away.
We've al got art to share, there must be more left in this world.

Down to the chamber with those fresh ideas, they scare, all the crows into hysteria, of letting go.
A little more to left field we're aiming, with all these antidotes we'll fix you up.

This pressure's still building, in record time.

We've all got art to share, no point in hiding away.
We've al got art to share, there must be more left in this world.

Never has there been a shortage so, of ways to make this world of ours glow.
But when nothing seems to be working out, we can make it known.

Come and try, it's easy, who knows now, this could be it.
Come and try, it's easy, we go now, to explore, this land, for more.

So keep an eye out for a new way to express yourself.

We've all got art to share, no point in hiding away.
We've al got art to share, there must be more left in this world.
