 DOUBLE-ALBUM

OUT NOW!

VINYL ONLY!

"Sometimes the album explains things that we can`t explain ourselves. Sometimes you understand. And sometimes you can`t breathe..." 

Carmen, Barcelona

"Watch out! The album can 

teleport you to an ever-evolving soundscape. And the 

lyrics are constantly questioning 

what we are"

Oytun, Istanbul

"Breathe in and take a deep dive into a sparkling stream full of scattering fragments of intangible memories, ephemeral moods and long-forgotten dreams – intense!“

Ksenia, Minsk

"The album has a Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits feel about it" 

Luc, Toronto

"The music seems to know me well already right after it starts. It’s a kind journey with myself. At the end of this journey, I might still be confused about myself about life, but I’m for sure not tired anymore." 

Wei, Shanghai

from TRUST nr.195/02

bougainvillea (b1)t

…a stylistically slightly mad tour de force blending theatre & film scores with post-singer/songwriter-noise pop, adding pinches of krautrock, lo-fi & orchestra
