about

Mary Bennet is a young girl looking to discover who she is and prove herself to the world around her. Over the summer, she stays at her aunt’s villa in a quiet little town in southern England, where she embarks on a mission to do just that. With her cousin Alice and friend Elli… She’ll get around to that eventually!

This is a concept album, illustrating a fictional series through music; an homage to light music from anime such as K-On!, Kin-iro Mosaic, Tari Tari, and Clannad. It's a little celebration of life/love/little things in life. If it Tastes Like Diabetes, I've done my job right. Thanks for listening! ^^;

Mary Bennet
- Age: 15
- Birthday: September 21
- Personality: Mary is a bright, cheerful girl. When she’s determined, she won’t let anything get in her way… However, she has a tendency to refuse help, even when it’s necessary. Her small stature and clumsy nature drive her to try and prove to others that she can do anything on her own. She came to her aunt’s villa over the summer with a mission to make a scrapbook about her friends and family.

Alice McCrae
- Age: 17
- Birthday: April 13
- Personality: Alice is Mary’s cousin. She’s very shy, quiet and reserved. She’s kind and polite, but she often takes things too seriously. She dreams of owning her own bakery, and can often be seen in the kitchen attempting to cook… something that resembles food. Her family is wealthy, and they own a large villa in the Cotswolds.

Elli Eldridge
- Age: 16
- Birthday: January 4
- Personality: Elli is Alice’s best friend. Red Oni to Alice’s blue, she’s very energetic, always trying to drag her friend with her to various events. She’s half-Russian, and has a slight obsession with tea. Earl Grey is her favorite.

Track Name: What Color is Love? (ft. Mero)
Roses are red, like berries in summer
Blue is the sky above
Colors in everything I can see
But what color is love?

Golden-laced frames on pictures of us
Flowers of lavender hues
Bluebirds sing melodies from their hearts
But what can I say about you?

I’ve looked at my palette of colors
None seem to show how I feel
I’ll take all of my brushes and pick up my paint
I’ll make a new color for you

Roses are red, like berries in summer
Green are the rolling hills
Even if all of my colors fade
My love for you never will
