about

My first album. This is Genuflection, a story of apathy and lust.

The tracks are all very raw with clean, non-effected vocals to reflect the experience. The sounds in this album are very spacious and distant, there isn't much "colour" to the music, the lyrics are tired and expressive and they are the centrepiece of the picture.

I wanted the cover to be black and white because this is not a flamboyant happy record. It is very personal and dark. I named it Genuflection. The act of getting to one's knees to pray to god symbolises, to me, a deep depression that drains you of all the energy you have in your body. Apathy can kill, that is the idea.

Being underwater and ice also seemed to be recurring topics during the songwriting. I guess all the songs are like bubbles in a deep muddy pond trying to get out, gasping for air. Don't mistake apparent joyful sounds for joyful songs.

Interesting fact about the lyrics, they are all chained. One song to another. There are words that tie song to song. Find them ;)

The album has a progression:
Anger (Flamebird, Under), Solitude (Somebody Looked For You), Departure (Call of the Wind), Complaint (Genuflection), Lust (6), Emptiness (Raining), The Next Day (Morning Frost, apathy), Call Home (Mother).
