R Good So much anticipation for new music, these bonus-tracks will have to suffice; the potential for amazing songwriting is evident in these re-imagined versions. "Few are the divers having air enough to never drown." BRILLIANT! Favorite track: Stray The Skies (October Session).

about

When our label approached us about wanting to rerelease Inmazes they also asked us about bonus tracks for the album.

During the sessions for Inmazes we didn’t record anything else than the 10 songs you hear on the record, so we had to create something from scratch if we wanted to pursue the idea of bonus material. While we wholeheartedly enjoy playing and making music that is energetic and consists of many layers, we also find a lot of inspiration in toned down, mellow music (like you hear on ‘Emily’, for example), and we rather quickly decided to follow this path for the extra material.

How would the songs from Inmazes sound if we interpreted them with this mind set? We decided to work on ‘Stray The Skies’ and ‘Gutter Moon’ to see what we could come up with. Consisting of only vocals, keys, acoustic guitar and percussion, these versions turned out very different from their loud siblings. We called them October Session - since they were arranged and recorded in October 2015 - and put them on the physical releases of Inmazes (B-side and download code). Now they are finally available on streaming services as well. Enjoy.

Track Name: Gutter Moon October Session)
GUTTER MOON

We want it all, addressing higher birds
I think we should have been a trinity
We want it all, addressing higher birds
I think you should have been a bird in me

Hey, let's watch the moon
It's leaving soon, let's sing its tune
Hey, how long a flight
We steal tonight this mournful sight

We want it all (to glow under this night sky), addressing higher birds
I think we should have been a trinity
I think you should have been a bird in me

All these scenarios under the moon
All the intrusions of sight
This exhibition I've dreamed in the gutter for so long
All these scenarios under the moon
All these confusions we find
My definitions have been in the gutter for too long
Track Name: Stray The Skies (October Session)
STRAY THE SKIES

In the beginning a song created thirst
Concluding a microphone formula giving Earth
A flutter inside, that's coming alive
I'm absorbing external violence
I'm jagged by an effort to please my audience
Approaching in here, I'm choking

I'm getting used to closing eyes everywhere
'Cause I'm beginning to stray the skies everywhere

I am silent but breathing heavily
I try to make sense of my skins complexity
My muse is designed to alter your mind
I am moving before this avalanche
That's constantly pushing me into consequence
It's floating in here, we're choking

This sound is unbearable, aching
My captain in dissonance loosing ground
Few are the divers having air enough to never drown
