about

After releasing three albums of more or less upbeat indie-pop, this collection was originally intended to be a standalone project of sparser folk material. Focusing on different instrumental textures (acoustic guitar, organs, drones, quiet percussion), song fragments, both vocal and instrumental, this current song list collects the best of the original three 'Absinthe' discs (Absinthe Twilight, Absinthe Mourning, and The Flowers Of Evil).

"Pure isolationism, no time to party, - it is a melancholic cycle of ambient melodies, a continuous quiet poetic introspection, - lonely bedroom atmospheres, the stars in a clear nocturnal sky - relaxing and silently are the reading key of these little gems, - where their strenght is marked by their own mesmerising beauty." -Komakino

Track Name: Autumn Hill
I’m going down an autumn hill
a shade that's falling
warm winds calling
I went down an autumn hill
shadows in corners
maybe you could stay
hearts tremble now
lights fading out
twilight is coming
lights fading fast
I went down
Track Name: Nocturne #3
the blankets of a setting sun
close to tears that disappear
a million miles away from one
chance of sleep tonight
lay awake to count the stars that come out
wide eyed
the light that flutters on the wall
slowly moving closer to the door
like a lazy wave that drags itself to shore
and voices in the hall
whisper all the different ways they think
a star could fall
the light that flutters on the wall
Track Name: Candle
I watched a dream disappear today
like a storm swept sea the tide has turned away
you're a candle in the rain
a warm hope's embrace
footsteps to trace in wonder
I’ve wandered the stars the sky is open now
dawn breaks awake, behind your eyes a smile
that slides like a sea
it rolls up inside the same cold terrain
that dear, I’ve seen, I believe
Track Name: Shroud
here are eyes that follow you the silence through the hall
near the light late afternoon, its dying soon the wall's the gravesite
I thought I saw darkened figure coming closer to deliver
arms outstretched the nightmare's swimming lights collide
the stars are dimming
bless your sweet eyes covered now it's coming down the shroud
Track Name: Here Comes The Storm
here comes the storm, here comes the storm
clouds roll in, warm rain begins
Track Name: Winter Year
the nights are getting longer dear
evening light will disappear
will you sing us a song
before the light is gone?
the nights are getting colder here
brings another winter year
will you sing us a song
before the day is done?
Track Name: The Half Light
all the day circle light around your dress like a son
he's gone away to let you find it’s hide and seek and you're the one
like a ship of waves, or a tail of nine lives, nothing left to save
quiet makes the way you feel precise in the crush of perfect warmth
fragile takes of flashing light signals from a distant storm
the sky in the half light, last breath left to breathe
everything is all right
