Epicentre 03:34
Hey, why don’t you come around here anymore? It’s okay, the night is young and beautiful It’s so strange, that falling apart is the only way to be whole Anyway, we’ll always have Blue Bell Knoll ‘Cause you are made of everything Of every speck of light Shining through the night ‘Cause You are all I’ve got So hey, why don’t you come around here anymore? It’s okay, the night is always young and beautiful When the lights grow dim And the sounds grow loud I can feel you here And hold on ‘til we drown ‘Cause you are made of everything Of every speck of light Shining through the night ‘Cause you are all I’ve got (Bridge) ‘Cause you are made of everything Of every speck of light Shining through the night ‘Cause you are all I’ve got ‘Cause you are made of everything Of every speck of light Shining through the night ‘Cause you are all I’ve got You are all I’ve got ‘Cause you are all I’ve got You are all I’ve got

Try so hard 04:31
I wake up in the morning The heaviness is gone Your skin as soft as a warm breeze Of peace and oblivion We’ve been fighting demons Valiant and alone Re-occuring patterns Of heartaches carved in stone You were just a child And I was just a thief Patron saints of loneliness Looking for relief Baby you don’t have to try so hard Baby you don’t have to be afraid Baby I’m not gonna slip away, away, away Baby you don’t have to hold so tight Baby you’re gonna have to have some faith Baby I’m not gonna fly away, away, away I freak out in the daylight My God what have I done! Disconnected feelings From me and everyone You were just a child And I was just a thief Patron saints of loneliness And now I’m missing you Baby you don’t have to try so hard Baby you don’t have to be afraid Baby I’m not gonna slip away, away, away Baby you don’t have to hold so tight Baby you’re gonna have to have some faith Baby I’m not gonna fly away, away, away And baby when you hold me in the night Baby when I see your smiling face Baby I know I found my place, my place, my place And baby I won’t let you go Baby I want you to always know That we’ll never have to walk this road alone, alone, alone Baby you don’t have to try so hard Baby you don’t have to be afraid Baby I’m not gonna slip away, away, away Baby you don’t have to hold so tight Baby you’re gonna have to have some faith Baby I’m not gonna fly away, away, away Away, away, away

In my daydreams I will be the one to make you tilt But these days I just Dig my heart out of the silt I was always on the mend Holding on to the wrong friends ‘Cause I was never at your side Making me so full of pride And uselessness I’m shedding now Skin on skin I’m feeling how The lights may shine through the dark I’m still sucking on that spark That led us down this rocky road Thought I’d never be alone Again I’m sitting on this chair With fragrant oils and dirty hair I must be suffering from the bends I’m holding on to the wrong friends again … In my daydreams I will be the one to make you tilt But these days I just Dig my heart out of the silt

I wish I could bury our love here One day I’ll say enough is enough I won’t let them pin this on me I was there when they took the body down Modern life is what you make it Echoes I remember, scars on repeat Collide with me once in a while I have to make my connection Wounds and scars have drawn a map The happiest days of our lives

I was afraid 04:56
Look at the mess I’ve made I’m sorry that I fucked up I didn’t mean to break your heart I only wanted your love But the demons come around When I lay in bed at night And you are sleeping sound beside me Feels like we’re a million miles apart I wanted so much for us I tried so hard to be Someone that you could rely on In this chaos you live and breath But my ego has holes to feed And the games you refused to play I got nervous as you turned away So I chose to leave I was afraid I was too insecure To let it all fall away I was afraid I was too insecure To know who you are So look at the mess I’ve made I’m sorry that I fucked it up I didn’t mean to break your heart All I wanted was your love

Wrap me up in your heart Love me I grew weary of loneliness Love me Surrender to my love Come to me I feel alive when you look at me Look at me Don’t laugh at me ‘Cause I’m stuck to you Don’t laugh at me ‘Cause I dedicated my life to you I go mad when you don’t call I lose my strength This cannot be Don’t laugh, please Don’t leave Don’t laugh, please Don’t leave I love you Wrap me up in your heart Love me I grew weary of loneliness Love me Surrender to my love Come to me I feel alive when you look at me Look at me

Cake 05:34
I’m gonna be A wonder in song Singing along to the fable Free And terrified All of my life in the shadows Everything you know is coming undone Everything you feel is illegal or wrong Every time you hope the night will wait for you I’m gonna be A symbol of peace A man at ease with the stars I’m gonna feel Every bump in the road Every broken arrow in my heart Everything you feel is illegal or wrong Every time you kneel it cuts to the bone Every sign you see disappears as the night is egging you on We were waking up Passed out in a field Clouds in our eyes Drowned in a dream We were waking up Passed out in a field I’ve gotta feel Like I’m doing it right I’m trying all night and you say It’s okay I love you enough And all of this stuff, is just cake Everything you know is coming undone Everything you feel is illegal or wrong Every time you hope the night will wait for you We were waking up Passed out in a field Clouds in our eyes Drowned in a dream We were waking up Passed out in a field

Soundworld 04:27
There is a sound world Inside and out Can’t feel my body Can’t feel my mouth There is a sound world Where time stands still I lift the veil I took the pills When we were in the force of age There is a sound world where bones won’t fray High on reset Tune you out No use for this body now I wash the blood from off the floor What would your mother say? High on reset Tune you out No use for this body now We were ghosts of children Acting out fear Innocent lights

It’s the death of love as we know it My heart is open, will let you in But what you’re giving I don’t want it Just lovin’ your skin on skin I’m closing that door for a while Want to give something new a try Might be the death of me But only in death we are free Baby don’t call me when you’re horny Call me when your heart is breaking and in need of mending Baby don’t call me baby Are you pretending or is this for real? It isn’t funny how I miss you sometimes It isn’t funny how I miss you sometimes It’s the death of love as we know it Drowning our feelings in gin and tonic What you’re giving is pure frustration Call me daddy, call me anything But baby don’t call me when you’re horny Call when your heart’s breaking and in need of mending Baby don’t call me baby Are you pretending or is this for real? It isn’t funny how I miss you sometimes It isn’t funny how I miss you sometimes

Baltic 04:23
The words came out of your mouth Like you meant it Looking over the city in the dark Let’s document this We are not free Just angels on day leave Things aren’t what they used to be The words came out of your heart Like you meant them Looking for the origin and spark This argument’s old Third rock from the sun We’re still not having fun Things aren’t what they used to be We were not always on the same page But we got along We were not always kind We were not always on the same page But we got along Maybe I’m not free yet Third time now going south Why don’t we let go? Our dreams have grown so far apart The nights are so cold Come on baby Let’s end this symphony Out of time and out of key

Stay by me 03:56
It was such a vulnerable time When you found me You started, I surrendered I embraced you These words of mine Are not a reproach These feelings terrify me Do I have to go through it all again? Stay by me Dreams are not enough Stay by me Stay by me Found you too late, love Stay by me Is it not a pity for me? I was lonely, I was lost I took refuge with you My worries stirring up again Do I have to go through it again? The pain Again the fear Again the love Stay by me Dreams are not enough Stay by me Found you too late, love Stay by me These feelings terrify me Stay by me Stay by me Dreams are not enough Stay by me I found you too late, love Stay by me I surrender to it now Stay by me Won’t you stay by me? Won’t you stay by me? Dreams are not enough Stay by me I found you too late, love Lyrics by Tamer Atessacan

about

Moving away from the garage band sound of “Hunger Streets”, new album ”SAINT CINEMA” shows a more refined distillation of those same influences, using a wider instrument palette.

On “SAINT CINEMA” Kidaphex1975 explores a variety of sounds, from the standard indie rock jangle of opener “EPICENTRE”, to the Trap R&B of “TRY SO HARD”, to the Electro-pop of “WRAP ME UP IN YOUR HEART” & “BALTIC” or the sinewy post-punk of “TILT”, which is a collaboration with fellow Berlin musicians Samantha Wareing on vocals and Romain Vicente on Drums and Guitar.

“I worked on about 18 different songs, but couldn’t quite find the common thread until I looked closer at the lyrics.” Says Kidaphex1975. ” I realized that most of them were songs about love. Not necessarily in a sappy “I love you, babe” kind of way, but the central theme was love in all its facets. The lyrics are also some of the most direct I have ever written, without too much flowery metaphors. It takes a while to learn how to express feelings in a very clear way. I hope the listener can connect to that and be touched by the raw emotion”, continues Kidaphex1975 about the lyrical themes of the record.

The record was self-recorded in Berlin from October 2018 until June 2020. It was also mixed, produced and mastered by Kidaphex1975 himself. “I wanted to approach these songs in a different way, than I had been doing up until now. Not only with different or unusual arrangements, but also I wanted to up the ante when it comes to my skillset and involvement in what I do,(…) It was really eye opening to understand the music on a different level than just lyrics, rhythm and melody.” says Kidaphex1975 of the recording.

“SAINT CINEMA” is released worldwide on October 3rd, 2020 on all major distribution platforms. Due to the current world situation, no tour or concerts have been planned, but an expansive digital presence is being deployed.
