about

Erekle Deisadze (vocals) and Temo Ezugbaia aka Vinda Folio (guitar, vocals) met in 2012 as they were both students. The Tbilisi duet joined a protest movement, considering music as a vector of social emancipation. “Activism is like an alternative culture in Georgia”, they confided to the webzine Soul Kitchen at the beginning of 2017 upon the release of their first EP on Talitres.

Distancing themselves with politically oriented songs, “Therapy”, their debut album, delivers an enchanting romanticism, a secret place where each one of us can draw dreams. The two musicians define here the contours of a poetic and singular universe punctuated by enigmatic lyrics (all the more for us).

For this chant is a journey in itself. On some tracks, Erekle Deisadze’s deep voice (quite sepulchral sometimes) makes way for Vinda Folio’s. The Georgian language, holding the round intonations of its letters, creeps in into us, slowly and lastingly. This music, gracefully oscillating between cold wave, dream pop and dancing rhythms (of a dark and cold dance, but so much addictive), borrows influences from British post punk and sticks to the musicians’ everyday life.

Track Name: Therapy
(english lyrics)

1. Therapy

Work in the mornings, disturbing alarm,
stolen minute passes away.
Words are in vain, bookshelves are full.
Sadness is unhurriedly creeping.

You will get over this sleep,
Overcome lush distances with wet umbrellas.
Don’t hide the fears that keep you naked.
Don’t know to whom this path would bring me
Don’t know when I will arrive
I am taking further routes,
And I have a secret for you
That I am trying to reveal:

Sleeping next to you is therapy for me

We are floating on stormy waves
We are floating on unsafe mines
Track Name: Nisliani
(english lyrics. Translation by Paata Shamugia, Anna Dziapsh-ipa, William Dunbar)

5. Nisliani

Unbeatable stillness that will start to live with us
When we still continue tiresome routine from the morning
My untaken steps, that enable me to reflect so much
takes my calmness away, the feeling that makes me alive
I hide it in unreachable thoughts during foggy peaceful times.
Pictures of us, our pictures.

Flashing sparkles in an unexplored dark, bring some stillness for a minute,
Yet a spurious one.
Cautious unknown disease, I carry with my blood
Our bodies left without any ray, eternally lacking the sun.

Things told without any consideration is an entrance for me, when we are both happy
It is part of a hidden world, when the words have the power of the sun.
The stories I watched together with you, through a fucking astonishing filter.
God trapped in the sun. No one will tell them about us.
How one tolerates heartbeats like this, pulsation
Sleepless nights will destroy us and we would become stars.
Track Name: Emotionally Captive
(Lyrics translated by Paata Shamugia, Anna Dziapsh-ipa. William Dunbar)

6. Emotionally captive

Now when I sing this song
I am standing like an unprotected monument
Expecting you to enter my body.

How many times your lips felt like a concrete shell

Emotional captivity
I pay attention to.
Transferring to countless buildings
The feeling of being without you.

How many times your lips felt like a concrete shell
I breathe
I breathe

And happen to be here with you, in this eternity
Track Name: Me as a Sound
Lyrics translated by Paata Shamugia, Anna Dziapsh-ipa. William Dunbar

7. Me as a Sound

Me as a sound expecting your word
Me as dust expecting your breath,
As a noise waiting to be calmed down
As if awakening from a bad dream.

I'm looking for you in each and every one, where are you
Seems you are here but seems you are not.
I'm ready for everything
Where are you

Where are you, where do you wander?
Where are you, hiding somewhere
Come out, shine forth
Open your heart wide.

Me as a sound expecting your word
Me as dust expecting your breath,
As a noise waiting to be calmed down
As if awakening from a bad dream.

Every road, each street, that leads to you
Has no end

Someone will possess your lost gaze
Still I will notice you beneath the darkness.

Every road, each street, that leads to you
Has no end
Track Name: Lucid Thoughts
Lyrics translated by Paata Shamugia, Anna Dziapsh-ipa. William Dunbar

8. Lucid Thoughts

Who will tell you stories about me
How someone else fills the void
delve into the calmness of the sea, don't worry.
If you tell me your name,
I'll return the lost tranquility to you

I name this void,
I call it your name.
This void

Delve into the sparkle of lightning, if you find a shelter on the road while snowing
Transparent thoughts will make your hair wet.


How I've learnt to look into the sky in solitude
Delve into the sky
Delve into the sun

How I've learnt to watch the sea in solitude
delve into the calmness of the sea,
Have a peaceful path
Track Name: He was all of them
Lyrics translated by Paata Shamugia, Anna Dziapsh-ipa. William Dunbar

9. He was all of them

Imagine,
In the city dust I have met a dead man
With cold sweat on his body
Name sounded familiar
He was all of them – he told me his story:

"I chose my path, never surrender
Was involved in unknown and dark games,
I lived here in the neighborhood
Throwing empty things in nearby trash bins
It was tough living among you
To breath, to be, to handle all of you,

There is a mess in my head
That I never felt before
Track Name: Holding a Brick II
Lyrics translated by Paata Shamugia, Anna Dziapsh-ipa. William Dunbar

10. Holding a brick II

The revolution tends to start easily in you
While you are standing with bricks in your hand
The revolution tends to start easily in you
When you're standing behind closed doors.

The revolution tends to start easily in us
When we're standing with bricks in our hands
The revolution tends to start easily in us
When we're standing behind the exit.

I am a voice of a change,
Voice of a prodigal sons
Of the resistance

Holding a brick!
