With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, people are looking for different ways to express their love. There are endless possibilities such as roses and chocolates, but a love song means something much more.

San Antonio creatives, Ultraviolet Boy and Joslyn Daniel, recorded a two-song, shared EP that is a perfect message to send to loved ones this Valentine’s Day. From cherished friendships to longing admirers, the “Dream of Eros” EP has both relatable and romantic themes.  

“Eros” refers to the astrological placement that describes a person’s love interests. Coupled with people’s Zodiac sign (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, etc.), is the Eros sign as well. Daniel and Ultravoilet go in depth with the EP’s title.

“[Eros] is like how you express your love,” Daniel said. “You can’t control how love hits you.”

“‘Dream of Eros’ is give into what is literally in the stars for you,” Ultravoilet said. “Just feel it all.”

The first track, “Greener Grasses,” by Ultravoilet, is a tribute to his best friends. Along with its lyrics, the upbeat track’s playful guitar loop is easy to get stuck in the listener’s head.

Ultraviolet, also known as D’Vonna Miller and formerly played under the name “Vonna,” wrote each line about a different friend that ties into the theme of strong companionship special to him. One line even includes Daniel, as they have been friends and bandmates since middle school.

“‘Dream of Eros’ is both of our perspectives of love at one point in time or another. My track is based on platonic love,” Miller said. “When I’m with my friends it’s always greener grasses.”

The second track, “Venus-Mars,” by Daniel, is all about infatuation and yearning for another. The charming ballad is a strong contrast from “Greener Grasses” with its lo-fi beat and heart-piercing melody matching the tone of its lyrics.

“I wrote it with one particular person in mind. Somebody that I’ve liked for a long, long time,” she said. “It’s just about having that crush for so long and it’s just such a lighthearted song, I think. But it also is like, ‘I miss you’, and then it goes straight into ‘I love you’ after saying we never dated.”

Stream “Dream of Eros” Feb. 12 on most streaming platforms or distrokid presave. Share the tune with loved ones whether it be a friend, partner or ex.

Abolish the Electoral College? I Disagree

By Tiger ShiWeb Content Contributor In June of 2019 then-Mayor Pete Buttigieg said that the Electoral College is “undemocratic” and he wishes to abolish it, according to the Hill. In my opinion, the Electoral College was designed to be democratic. There is a reason why the U.S. is considered a “constitutional republic” rather than a democracy. "Democratic" is a vague term to apply to the U.S. because we are not […]
