In 2003 Cold Fairyland performed in the River Bar, run by a band called
Wild Child. To mark the occasion, Lindy wrote the song "Seeds on the
Ground" to express Cold Fairyland’s affection and respect for Wild Child. The
song was premiered at this performance. A few years later Wild Child’s lead
singer, Xiao Suo, unexpectedly died of cancer. This made the members of
Cold Fairyland deeply sorry and upset. So, to commemorate him, the title
track "Seeds on the Ground" is dedicated to Xiao Suo.
Lindy created "Five Travelers" as purely instrumental music, and the
quintet forged a new style, prominently featuring the cello and pipa.
Uncommon instruments in the band’s former style, their use is

In fact, Five Travelers" was recorded at same time as the album “
Kingdom of Benevolent Strangers”, But the cut was "frozen", unmixed. A
span of more than three years passed until the Instrumental was finally
completed for the album.
On the album, "Kingdom of Benevolent Strangers", the cello played only
a small role. With the completion of the new album and the maturation of the
new style, all five players are fully involved. This was Lindy’s intention.
In rehearsal now, we have really learned how to rely on each other.
After three years, the new album is like the birth of the child. Lindy and
Cold Fairyland explore a different musical language, a wondrous thing, This
musical world is full of boundless imagination and countless possibilities.
And now, we will follow Cold Fairyland on a journey through nature,
rivers, forests, wilderness, and into your heart. Think - outside the sky, how
blue, how wide.
