“The lyrics of ‘An Ocean With No Waves’ we tried to balance between the two different layers of the song: on one hand there was Yas’ sentimental and outstanding personage, on the other hand the ever-growing message of Belau.

It is about love in its eternal entirety” – said the duo about their new song featured the London-based artist, Yasaquarius who already collaborated with TroyBoi.
