about

Ryan Fox's first full-length album, They Called It Night, lets you wander into the unknown; past the silhouettes of trees in the distance. It tells a story of love and loss while taking you on a wild journey down the roads less traveled. Lyrically speaking, each song provides its own piece to the overarching story of the album, repeating thematic elements of "darkness," "runaways," and "youth." The album's swirling snyths swell into waves of emotion as they crash around the melodic core of the songs. The driving drum beats of Shawn Fox and big guitars of Ryan Fox take the songs and raise them into anthemic heights. Olivia Price and Ryan Fox tactfully blend their voices into one powerful, unified instrument, allowing for colossal pushing choruses with beautiful harmonies intertwined. Influences of The Cure, Coldplay, and The Killers can be heard meshing with original concepts throughout the tracks.

Track Name: Wild Magic
Voices talking low
Darkness won't make me slow
There's no stoppin' this time
There's no stoppin on this road

To the top of our lives
We were only only
Too young to find
The magic inside
I ran for miles with you
I ran for miles on that road

And it ran through the trees
Like a mornin' love song
Too early to see
The magic within me
I thought and thought about you
I thought about you all night long

And there are places
We called home
In little spaces
Of the unknown

To the top of our lives
We were only only
To the top of our lives
We were only only
Too young to see
Track Name: I Found A Way
Frightened by the world
Come out and take my hand
There’s no need to fear
I know where I am

Chase me through the dark
Through places we don’t know
Oh come back to the light
And I will take you home

Time, would even ask us why
And you, you were sure this time
Oh I’ve found a way

Where’s your hiding place?
Where you secrets grow
Let me inside
Will I ever know?

Send me a smile
Everything’s okay
Come on and take my hand
Let’s run through this old day

Time would even ask us why
And you, you were sure this time
Oh, I’ve found a way

Time, it tried to change my mind
But you, you were sure this time
Oh I’ve found a way
Track Name: Fool's Gold
If I lost it all
Would you come back to me
In the midst of it all
I could barely see

Will the sirens call
When the world starts to see
Time’s a wrecking ball
Oh it got the best of me

Oh I held you close
You slipped away
From my heart
In my bones
Oh I feel
The aching cold

I tried to break the wall
There it stood at your heart
As the sun starts to fall
Shadows creep the land

Into the dark unknown
I could barely see
I couldn’t stop the fall
Oh I slipped away

Oh I held you close
You slipped away
From my heart
In my bones
Oh I feel
The aching cold
Track Name: Wishing Well
You lay your head down
Dream of all you want
And close you eyes
It’ll be alright

Momma told you
Stories in the night
Legends of the old
Oh will I ever know?

One day, you wake and rise up
Cast all your dreams aside

Down the wishing well

Far away you ran
Away from your home
Down the hills and through the fields
Now you’re all grown

The scars on your hands
The dirt in your eyes
The stories momma told
Still were inside

One day, you wake and rise up
Cast all your dreams aside

Down the wishing well

In your dreams you see your home
A thousand miles all alone
You ran away from it all
I hope you know

Down the wishing well
Track Name: Shipwrecked
Inside a mystic mind
I saw I ship set sail
And go into
Waters unknown
There were stormy skies
As lighting crashed
And we could
Never return
Never go


Inside the captain's eye
Oh there he saw
A ghost of
Someone he loved
And in the ragin' sea
Madness swirled
And it
Pulled us below
Pulled us down below

We're shipwrecked now

And in his final words
Oh the captain spoke
About the
Journey to go
We watched his shaking hands
As they turned to gold
And he
Slipped into the
Sea

We're shipwrecked now
Track Name: Where We Were
On a hot night
Oh I feel it
In those headlights
I can see it
With your dark eyes
You saw my heart

But I can’t go back
To where we were

In my memory
I conceal it
Blurred in time
But I don’t it need it
All these moments
That we never had

But I can’t go back
To where we were

What would you say?
I will try and make this world
Spin again
Oh your heart
It decayed with time
I will try and sing it
Back to life
To where we were

Through the echoes
I still hear it
In my bones
I can feel it
You’re the ghost
That haunts my home

But I can’t go back
To where we were

What would you say?
I will try and make this world
Spin again
Oh your heart
It decayed with time
I will try and sing it
Back to life
To where we were

In those headlights now
I recall it
In a parking lot
Where we cursed the night
All these visions in dreams
I will always see
I know it’s not right
But we can’t go back
To where we were

What would you say?
I will try and make this world
Spin again
Oh your heart
It decayed with time
I will try and sing it
Back to life
To where we were
Track Name: In The Dark
And we’ll talk
About the mysteries in your mind
And we’ll walk
Down these streets when we were small
But it got dark
And the leaves changed their shades
October Sky
Was blazing red in your eyes

I said fire
Oh, it burns through the night
And we’ll glow
As we’re racing towards the light
Where’d you go
Take my hand, as we’ll run through the dark

And we’re quiet
Oh the wind howls your name
Let’s runaway
But the scene stays the same
In your heart
We sang songs to feel alive
In your eyes
I became a different kind

I said fire
Oh, it burns through the night
And we’ll glow
As we’re racing towards the light
But where’d you go
Take my hand, as we’ll run through the dark

You could feel it
Under your skin at night
And I'll know
Did you know

Oh I could taste it
There were kingdoms in your eyes
And I'll know
Did you know

I said fire
Oh, it burns through the night
And we’ll glow
As we’re racing towards the light
Where’d you go
Take my hand, as we’ll run through the dark
Track Name: One More Night
There’s darkness on the rise
I saw the evil in your eyes
I won’t be there for you
If you see me tonight

Chaos filled my bones
And it left me all alone
Oh I'll run towards the rise
If I see you tonight

You can’t fight what’s in your blood
Lurking shadows in the dust
You’re probably somewhere that I knew
If I see you

One more night

I traveled across the night
Saw the diamonds in the sky
Oh I thought they spelled your name
But maybe I was wrong

What have I become?
I lost my soul to love
Oh I’ll run towards the rise
If I see you tonight

I hear the whispers in the dark
Oh and something took my heart
Back to someplace that I knew
If I see you

One more night
Track Name: Heroes
Runaway to the dark
I saw you go
You're tryin' find
Your way home
You're settin' fire
To your whole life
You watch it burn
Into the night

And I can be your
I can be your hero

You cry aloud
Come rescue me
In time of trouble
I start to see
I'll always be
There for you
Even when your world's torn apart

And I can be your
I can be your hero

There's danger
Somewhere near
There's no time
For any fear
Oh I'll save you
From this mess
And I'll be
Your hero

The dreams we made
With wounded hearts
Tangled minds
And battle scars
And the places we've been
And the things we saw
In the dark
They called it night
Track Name: Fade (Bonus Track)
When I felt alive
I did see her
Come to life
Let your heart explode
Let it kill you
With all its might

And you start to feel again
Oh the trouble we did cause
Where’s the feeling that is now
Oh it will capture you

I recalled the day
And you forgot the night
And where we lied
In a flash of sparks
There was my life
And all my time

Who were you to make this move
Oh the power I had held
Where’s the feeling that is now
Oh it faded long ago
