about

Titled Kalinihta (Greek for Good Night), the debut album is inspired by a poem called Casabianca by Felicia Dorothea Hermans. The songs are sonic voyages through the emotional landscape of the young Casabianca as he stands on the burning deck of his ship waiting for a command from his father to leave his post.

Recorded in the space of five months at Gum Grooves Studios, Kalinihta is a sound fuelled by the Bristol sound of the 90s, Asian underground, 70s progressive rock, and inspired by the ebbs and flows of the ocean.

The ending may be tragic, but the songs on this album definitely are not. Listen to them and embark on your own personal journey between the devil and the deep blue sea.

Track Name: Without my Intervention
It was five o clock on Sunday afternoon,
It was hot, and dry, and I couldn’t even blink,
Sunset approached like an unwelcome stranger,
When the willows started to speak,
Of the things they had seen,
And the things they had done.
Thanks to the help of the wind.

And the words flow into my mind,
As the world blows into my life.
Strange and simple,
Without my intervention.
And the words flow into my life,
As the world blows into my mind.
Strange and simple,
Without my intervention.

Of distant places, and unbridled passion,
Of cities that thrived on delusion,
Of tricky stars and arduous streams,
Of truant music and immaculate dreams.

Of fairies with stardust for sale,
Of tin soldiers that ran without fail.
Their bullets stuck to their guns,
Aimed at mad poets and their interminable puns.

Of innocence lost in the arms of age,
Of performers exiled without a stage,
Of broken hearts searching for missing pieces,
Or chapters that almost skipped a page.

And the words flow into my mind,
As the world blows into my life.
Strange and simple,
Without my intervention.
And the words flow into my life,
As the world blows into my mind.
Strange and simple,
Without my intervention.

You got the place, they've got the time.
Stand up for your rights or better stand in line.
Track Name: Blink of an Eye
Walk this little path with me,
Shake your dreaming tree.
As the stories fall down,
They’ll become the sea.

Share a start with me,
Stare at the possibilities,
As they begin to show,
You’ll see the way to be free.

Leave your love with me,
I’ll shelter its inadequacies.

You’ll walk, you’ll stay,
You’ll leave, you’ll sway,
You’ll breathe, you’ll pray,
You’ll feel yourself wasting away.


You’ll smile and you’ll cry,
You’ll fake, and you’ll lie,
You’ll seethe, you’ll sigh,
All in the blink of an eye.


Stay and waltz with me,
As the band plays a song for three,
Leave after a minute or two,
I’ll applaud politely.

As it withers away,
I’ll plant another seed.


You’ll walk, you’ll stay,
You’ll leave, you’ll sway,
You’ll breathe, you’ll pray,
You’ll feel yourself wasting away.


You’ll smile and you’ll cry,
You’ll fake, and you’ll lie,
You’ll seethe and you’ll sigh,
All in the blink of an eye.
