Released on streaming platforms on Friday (June 24), the three-track EP sees the two Singaporean singer-songwriters team up on original pop tracks.
‘If You Leave Me Alone’ – the opening track of the EP – tackles being engulfed in a relationship and not knowing who you are outside of it. “All I have is cuz of you / So who would I be / If you leave me alone?” they sing.
In the new video for ‘If You Leave Me Alone’, the two musicians star as miniature versions of themselves living in a dollhouse. The owner of the dollhouse eventually realises that she’s too old to hold on to childish possessions and gets rid of it.
‘Pretty Boy’, the liveliest song in the collection, touches on being perceived according to society’s standards, being forced to “fit in where I’m supposed to”.
The EP closes with the previously released single, ‘Good In Me’. First released earlier this month, the evocative track is about accepted by one’s partner.

Speaking of the collaboration via a press statement, Gentle Bones described working with Lullaboy as a “once in life time moment of songwriting mastery in my journey with music and yet also just a vulnerable good time”.
Lullaboy added: “We hope the fans find themselves in these songs, each with a different mood but the same soul”.
Indonesian-Singaporean artist Lullaboy released his debut album ‘chapters of you’ on January 20, which featured tracks like ‘Dejavu’ and ‘Only In My Dreams’.
