Square One, the new EP

Remember this date: 1st of February ! This is going to be the date of our new release, Square One the new EP we have been working hard on.

So from the 1st of February you will find it available as physical limited numbered copy on our official store or on the main digital stores (Spotify, Apple Music, etc).

Who ever played Monopoly when little kids?

After completing one full circle you would get to Square One again, but this time enriched of experience and changed comparing to the first time you were there.

This is what this EP represents for me: a new start on the same game board but with a different awareness and enriched from the first lap.

Experiencing the same thing twice or three times is never gonna be the same after all, our body and brain learn from the experience so every repetition would have a different feeling. Seeing the same world with different eyes and soul.

The Art work, a picture by Maxime le Conte des Floris represents exactly this: a square towards the sky as new start to look at with optimism.

I will be presenting the new album at The Islington in Angel on the 29th of January and the official release on the main digital stores will be on the 1st of February. At The Islington you will have the chance to get one of the limited edition physical EP before every body else, so don’t miss it !

Here the Facebook Event for more info on the night, see you there!

 

Where have you gone

This song was written a while ago. I was back home in Italy and it was a warm night of September. It represents an imaginary dialogue with the young self of years ago: where that dreamy boy has gone ?

Life can harden you up with its difficulties and challenges so we often forget how to look at the sky with the amazed eyes of a kid.

There is something about you you might not wanna lose
It’s your way to see the beauty in a rainy day too

We should always keep alive the little kid in us, he would make us see the world with a different perspective, more joyous and playful.

The song itself was recorded a few times in different ways and arrangements, we could not find the right way to express its mood. So when we finally tried this, me and our producer Max Ciccarelli looked at each other and we said: “That’s it” !!

Enjoy!

 

Where have you gone, my friend

And what have you done over all these years

Where have you been? have you seen something great,

or have you been counting the stars above you?

 

Tell me the truth, did you expect to find me here

Talking to you and telling you I am for real

I am here to stay and walk you through the hallways in your mind

So dark and cold at times

 

There is something about you you might not wanna lose

It’s your way to see the beauty in a rainy day too

And don’t forget to take this song with you

and then sing it out loud when you are feeling blue

Tell me everytime you do, you’ll find me everywhere you look

 

It’s easy to see in your eyes

You looked for too long for signs

And then you have lost your faith in this world

Out of your mind and torn

 

Remember me running wild and free

Sharing my smile and my crazy dreams

Nothing is lost, I’ll walk you through the hallways in your mind

So dark and cold at times

 

There is something about you you might not wanna lose

It’s your way to see the beauty in a rainy day too

And don’t forget to take this song with you

and then sing it out loud when you are feeling blue

Tell me everytime you do, you’ll find me everywhere

 

There is something about you you might not wanna lose

It’s your way to see the beauty in a rainy day too

And don’t forget to take this song with you

and then sing it out loud when you are feeling blue

Tell me everytime you do, you’ll find me everywhere you look

Tell me every time you do, you’ll find me in your mirror too.
