she is a murderer a molecular disease she'll exterminate everyone she'll ever please there's a shadow in her eyes I have noticed for a while and I'll sew my thread of thoughts just to lead her where I want to hide and climb oh use your imagination to keep up with life there's one entire nation to make u realise you're dead inside she's a pioneer, my love so strong and so alive tell her God she's not unique ‘I will feast on his insides happily’ there is blood inside her mind so afraid to let it dry but whatever may come she's light and light and light and light and…

and the skies shine through they remind me of happiness surrounding all created equally wise it's a wide disguise of shifting colours and resonance twirling round the core of life still you shut your eyes but you’ll see more than you’ve ever realised we hover a little in awe of this uncertainty ambitious yet afraid that the skies will collapse over us and this moment will all fade in a glimpse of infinity still you shut your eyes but you’ll see more than you’ve ever realised exploding, yearning to release us from pain and matter and reasoning in this floating, vast universe where neither rhyme nor reason makes sense to me still you shut your eyes but you’ll see more than you’ve ever realised

you are forever, repenting of living in a haste as if you're always running around you are forever, repenting, stop breaking inside and realise that all is meaningful still they need to understand you you're in this terror so please stop blaming you this is why they offer you this family to nourish yourself and you are forever repenting and impossible to be it is the scariest of rollercoasters and now that you need a haircut afraid that they will see all that is yours and be forgotten help me understand why the pride you had once is all gone? well I know it can't last forever… take me to the end and further on, it is the same old song that's yearning for the calling beyond you are forever repenting of living in disguise and lay still forever impossible to be

some day you decide it the time just seems right beyond blurry colours when people need people to guide them with guidance, they say it is righteous to live with the living and fight with the stronger I say fuck the righteous and fall with the fallen I do (cuckoo!) we tried wishful thinking we even tried to reason with pigs cremated pure feelings all christian like lying and guilt I'm being poetic and very energetic to comply with some surreal post-humanity the skies are on fire all golden with power I'm holding my breath with dignity red hands burning up with desire they flood and they pump blood for blood and when evolution demands revolution run free take a dive with me my mommy is skinny she wants to be prettier than me and when dad’s around me I feel my insides burning me they say it takes courage to hush when is needed stay put while earth's shaking I say fuck the silent and scream with the breathing I do (cuckoo!) red hands burning up with desire they flood and they pump blood for blood and when evolution demands revolution run free take a dive with me red hands burning up , up above I know we won’t take it all

this is the moon, she keeps me all safe glows on what I feel and makes it ok this is the moon there's nothing to fear she lights up our way helps us disappear this is the moon she drowns and she floods and when we fall back will force us to play so she carries us away till morning, away so she carries us away till morning this is the moon she lights up our way helps us disappear and makes it ok and when we all turn shapeshifting and strange black holes lift us up to live in her caves mother moon tuck us in with violet and grey help us climb through fluorescent stars where glittering moths are playing the drums so she carries us away till morning, away so she carries us away till morning

love bathes us all in fire pure liquid love consuming desire arising so carefully implying sympathy, deceiving so delicate and powerful and magically feeding me hysterical like lava crawling like lava licking this fire is liquid desire consuming implying sympathy arising so carefully, deceiving in fire I see you embracing me with lust and tears desire consuming us so delicate and powerful and magically feeding me like lava crawling like lava licking in fire you bathed me and mystically you moved me awaiting the morning dew to cool us down and steep in love

Ingen vinner frem til den evige ro som seg ei veldig fremtrenger. Sjelen den må utstå en kamp for den tro hvorav vår salighet henger. Porten kalles trang og veien heter smal. Dog kan Herrens nåde åpne himlens sal. Kjemp da alvorlig, treng fremad med makt, Om du vil himmerik vinne! Meget vil deg hindre min sjel stå imot, Satan ei nåden deg unner. Treng deg gjennom alt som vil stanse din fot, verg deg i fristelsens stunder. Intet vil deg gagne hele verdens prakt dersom den får sjelen fanget i sin makt. Hør hva han sier som døde for deg: Strid i Guds kraft for din krone. Jesus i ditt hjerte er alle ting verd selv er han himmeriks rike. Derfor gjør med Jesus din daglige ferd aldri vil han fra deg vike. Treng deg til hans hjerte inn med all din makt han i nåde rekker deg din bryllupsdrakt. Hør hva han sier, bruk tålmod o sjel, så skal du himmerik vinne, så skal du himmerik vinne!

Φίλησα τον λύκο χτες όλη τη νύχτα πίστεψα πως στην αγκαλιά μου βρισκόταν ένα τρυφερό παιδί όμως κρατούσα το λύκο! Τα νύχια του χάραξαν βαθιά το δέρμα μου, άνοιξαν αυλάκια η ανάσα του με έκαψε στο πρόσωπο, τα δόντια του μπήχτηκαν στον ώμο μου στο σκοτάδι μέτρησα ένα-ένα τα πλευρα του Θα μπορουσα να ταξιδέψω μαζί του σε άγνωστες, παγωμένες χώρες του βορρά ή θα μπορούσα να σφίξω ύπουλα τα χέρια μου γύρω απ'το λαιμό του γλιτώνοντας για πάντα απ'τη θανατηφόρα του ορμή έπρεπε όμως να αποφασίσω γρήγορα... Παραμέρισα, τον άφησα πέφτωντας να σκίσει το σεντόνι με τα νύχια του και του χάιδεψα την πλάτη στοργικά (φίλησα τον λύκο)

about

Fragments of earthly reality are floating above. Frameless, thus limitless, are transformed to embrace each other in a bizarre union, celebrating their new euphoric perception, resonating life and mystical dreams.

The music of Sofia Sarri is personal, pagan and magical. A universe where uncompromised resolutions are welcome allowing the Cretan lyra, a distinct folk instrument from the mountains of her home island Crete, to feel at ease when placed together with the analog synth, the vibraphone and some wicked double bass drumming.

“Every track has a story to tell” says Sofia, “a sacred bind to nature, as if a totem lies in the spirit of every song”. The moon, the cuckoo, the wolf and the strings alongside with electronic micro beats seem to merge perfectly with Sofia’s both delicate and powerful vocals, manifesting the omnipotence of nature.

Sofia’s journey through music and singing is long. Performing and composing for bands of diverse background such as the post-rock collective of Night on Earth, a true pioneer of Athens’ indie scene. This time the urge was to set and meticulously narrate the musical paths that she had so far explored. To handle her voice as an equal instrument among other instruments and belt out her mystical parallel universe. She is experimenting with both traditional forms and the contemporary while sticking to her generation’s fusion of massive sonic and music information.

Labelling Sofia’s music can be tricky: avant rock with a pinch of Scandinavian black metal, urban ambient, dark-hop...The moment you are about to categorise her she manages to slip away. As it is expected from an artist who’s influences spread out all around the world of sounds, manifested by the higher and innermost need of everything human: communication.

Out on LP, CD and digital album via Inner Ear.
