From Janis: I will confess that Xylaroo are a bit of a mystery to me. When pressed for information about themselves, all I could get was "Two half-British, half Papua New Guinean sisters (Coco and Holly Chant) making music out of East London." That's it. No "And we have a new record coming out" or "Here's our social media information." It's kind of a relief to hear from musicians who just say "This is us" and let it go at that; as the video would indicate, they're in it for the music, like everyone else on this project. But after watching the video and listening to the music, I wish I knew more!


Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

When we greet each dawn without fear
knowing loved ones soon will be near
When the winds of war
cannot blow any more
Oh, better times will come


Though we live each day as our last
we know someday soon it will pass
We will dance, we will sing
in that never-ending spring
Oh, better times will come



Oh, better times will come
