about

The final part of the EP-series (for now?...). Prominently named "Five"; this EP features more audience friendly songs with something reminiscent of a song structure.

"Part I: A Beginning" is a throw back to the first EP, referencing how it all began and talking about how beginnings are. It is split into three parts, reminiscent of "The Painting" from "Images Of A Distant Place", but with a twist in the middle.

"Part II: A Journey" is an instrumental piece based on the same chords used in "Part I. A Beginning" and "Part III: An End". It is just me noodling on my guitar for two minutes, no metronome or structure whatsoever.

"Part III: An End" is the third part of the first song, this time with more instrumentation and reverb. It's five guitar and bouzouki tracks all playing individual notes, and panned hard left and right. The lyrics revolve around how thing end, and closure.

The only title track in the EP-series so far - "Five" - is an acoustic tune I started working on about two years ago. I found the lyrics in my old notebook and sat down to remeber the song. It got stuck in my head and I ended up recording it for the EP, as it shared the same name. It is a song about finding yourself, and was written when I was going through a hard time in my life.

"Over the Mountain, Under the Hill" is an irish folky tune I wrote a few years ago. I love revisiting the past and stealing my own ideas. This one is recorded with an old iPhone and raped in my DAW to make it sound good.

Space. That's what it's all about.

Space and beards, to be precise.

Yeah... Seems about right.

Track Name: Part I: a Beginning
Life is just passing by
And in each moment we try
Another day, another dawn
One day soon we'll be done

Life if pieces and parts
Mending fences and walls
Time is now, the music on
One day soon we'll be gone
Track Name: Part II: a Journey
This one does not have any lyrics, because it's an instrumental.
Track Name: Part III: an End
Life is just passing by
And in each moment we die
Time is lost and meaning gone
One day soon we'll be done

Life is pieces and parts
Broken arrows and hearts
Time is up, the music off
Rest assured, it's enough
Track Name: Five
I've been spending the last five days driving round in my car
I've seen mountains and forests and oceans amazingly vast
Despite all this time I still don't know why I'm here
Doing three hundred miles each day on these wheels

But still I keep driving on
Looking for meaning, answers and truth
To end all these lies I've been told
Tell me why ain't I getting it right
Tell me why I believe in these lies
Tell me why there is nothing but clouds up there

Been five weeks since last time I saw that god awful town
Five weeks since I stuck my head in the ground
If there's something I've learnt over there weeks
It doesen't matter how it is when we're gone

But still I keep driving on
Looking for meaning, answers and truth
To end all these lies I've been told
Tell me why ain't I getting it right
Tell me why I believe in these lies
Tell me why there is nothing but clouds up there
Track Name: Over the Mountain, Under the Hill
This one is also an instrumental.
