Audio

My new album Audio is now available for purchase and streaming.

Audio is a 80s/90s inspired dance record. My goal was to record an album similar to Pet Shop Boys’ Introspective: six long tracks, which would be later released as singles. It was a liberating experience not to try to record hits, but instead work on extended mixes of dance tracks. You’ll hear inspirations coming from The KLF’s “3 AM Eternal” (available as b-side to “Fall Forever EP”), Dusty Springfield’s “Occupy Your Mind” and a rather smashing cover version of Cristina’s “Is That All There Is?” which is not, I repeat, it is not autobiographical.

Gonna Be Alright

Sometimes I lose the track of time a bit
And find myself down somewhere dark
Where I forget that all it takes to see
Is just one little spark
So many times my heart was broken, but
I’ve never given up on love
And so today once more I open up the door
And step into the sun

When there is no moonlight throughout the night
Remember there will come a day
And that no matter what, at the end
It’s always gonna be okay
When there are monsters underneath your bed
Remember they are scared of light
And once you flip a switch they’re running to the hills
It’s always gonna be alright

Sometimes I find myself outside the map
Somewhere I’ve never been before
It’s like I fell asleep and when I woke up
the darkness stood outside my door
I look around and I am feeling lost
And there is nowhere I could hide
But I remind myself that every time
so far things turned out to be fine

When there is no moonlight throughout the night…

Fall Forever

deeper

lately i’ve been like a stranger to myself
now i’m lost in you
you could have held my hand somehow
you didn’t have to drop me now

now i fall forever
and i fall forever
and i fall forever
and i fall forever, baby

i found what i was looking for and lost myself again
why did you let me fall into this void of mine?
where lovers meet i’ve found your open arms
now i’m lost in you

now i fall forever
and i fall forever
and i fall forever
and i fall forever, baby

oooh yeah
no, no, no
why did you let me fall?
yeah

deeper
baby, baby

THINGS THAT WE DO FOR LOVE

No matter where you want to have me
Just say and I’ll be there
Come and go when the wish takes over
I’ll take what I can get
Just call me baby even after midnight
Drunk, sober I don’t care
Feel free to wake me up when you’re not alone
I’m ready to share

Things that we do for love (I need your lovin’)
Whatever you’re dreaming of (I need your lovin’)
Things that we do for love (I need your lovin’)
(I need your I need your I need your lovin’)
Things that we do for love (I need your lovin’)
Coming from high above (I need your lovin’)
Things that we do for love (I need your lovin’)
(I need your I need your I need your lovin’)
Love me tonight

It never is too dark for me to see you
My Zippo will be my guide
Because you truly are the only lover
That knows how to do me right
I wanna take you to some special places
But only when you like
If you don’t wanna see familiar faces
I’ll dye my hair tonight

Things that we do for love (I need your lovin’)
Whatever you’re dreaming of (I need your lovin’)
Things that we do for love (I need your lovin’)
(I need your I need your I need your lovin’)
Things that we do for love (I need your lovin’)
Coming from high above (I need your lovin’)
Things that we do for love (I need your lovin’)
(I need your I need your I need your lovin’)
Love me tonight

Don’t make me beg for you tonight
I need someone to do me right
I’d like that someone to be you
Just tell me what I have to do
Don’t make me wait for you tonight
I know that you will see the light
Checking your Facebook day and night
My way of life

Things that we do for love…
