about

Redshift EP is a six-star sonic universe expanding itself rapidly towards the vision of TRANSFORMATION. It is conceived in a passionate love affair between the vulnerable and the powerful.

These songs fearlessly combine influences of electronic music, avant-garde sound art and diverse genres of live music, such as progressive metal and noise rock, all united in their ruthless chase of The Sound.

They are a result of a non-linear compositional approach where Lenkadu samples field recordings, lays beats, dreams out kalimba psychedelia, laboriously stumbles guitar riffs, flows a bass undercurrent and fuels these sonic stars by anything from guttural to ethereal vocal textures.

Track Name: Feathers and Leather
earth is slipping under my feet
in fear stutter of defeat
[:feathers leather
feathers and leather
so i can go go go wherever:]

[:feathers leather:]
so we can go go go wherever
dusty corners of your mind
hide your worse enemy

feathers leather
of nothing is solid here
than nothing can fall apart

feathers leather
heart-shaped crystals
put them into your three eyes
and shine

feathers leather
feathers and leather
so i can go go go wherever
and shine

i'm not scared

so i can go go go wherever
Track Name: Blood on the Tracks
blood on the tracks lets take time
to settle down
lets first travel
for as long as it has its charm

you've already decided that you're not leaving
i've already decided to take my time
it's a choice for blood on the tracks

meet up half way
lets set a time
i'll come out of my own ways
if you change yours
it's a choice for blood on the tracks

don't settle down
lets first travel
for the rest of your life
lets first travel

don't don't settle down
lets first travel
for the rest of our lifes
or just for today.
Track Name: Spring Rounds
don't waste any time
facing nordic might
run run for the sun
it lasts only season

body is a trickster to the mind
it's warm only right before we die
run run run for the sun

we got no food left
blind in frozen hell
we lost all our reason
guilty of an unknown treason

time to build fires
burn fears of hard winters

it's not far from here
we're going to miss each other's heat

'cause you not near
time to build fires
burn fears of lonesome winters

it's not far from here
we'll hunt for another's heat
'cause you not near (here)

time to build fires
burn memories of dark winters

'cause you're nowhere near
and you could be right here

don't waste any time
run run for the sun

you should be here

time to build fires
burn memories of dark winters

you could be here

run for the sun
Track Name: Raindrops
Raindrops
Lyrics

Save your cries for rainy days
Let the raindrops wash your tears

Save your cries for rainy days
Let the raindrops wash your fears

Before you know it
it's over

Not gonna make you stronger
if you hide how you feel

Smile in trouble
gather strength in distress
grow brave by reflection
act as if you're fearless

Not gonna make you stronger
if you hide how you feel

Got to keep it together for a little bit longer

Before you know it
it's over
Track Name: Speak Softly
Speak Softly
Lyrics

Please speak softly we just woke up
our night was still young when you've gone long sleeping
now you're on a roll but we just started dreaming

Please speak softly our ears still play wild nightlife
Night was too long
the morning came too early
a bit too bright
your voice cuts through our deep breathing

Please speak softly we just woke up
the night was too long
the morning came too early
a bit too bright for our eyes to see clearly
Track Name: Live in Air
for what we know
there's life out there

going to find it
going to touch it

not living alone

not dying alone

not dreaming alone
