The story of

Afterwars

single / 2021-01-22
ambient folk / rhodes & vocals

The first release of 2021 somehow happened to be Afterwars. Created unexpectedly (as yet another of our 2nd-most-important-things), we put together only the sound of rhodes (a type of electric piano) and the voice to tell a story. Filled with post-war ambience, it is influenced not only by typical Middle Ages war you can imagine from either the Lord of the Rings-style of movies or Fallout game series... the song also reflects the actual, almost after-war-ish, covid situation, deaths & lockdowns.

Afterwars' feeling also corresponds to the moment Disney's Mulan enters a burned-out village - and with its music video, we tried to acknowledge the allusion, so strongly connected to the feeling as well as our personalities. Our music and songwriting style is, overall, considerably influenced by animation movies' music... did you know?

& lyrics

nettle once brittle
kneels on burning snow
dandelion grove
breathing ashes bitter

an elephant-like hole in the ground
don’t look in on the strangers
eyes wide from the danger 
disappeared with all the sound

a doll holding a hand
hands sleeping in, tight
in their hold, no fight
just dance with the twirling sand

nettle once brittle
kneels on empty plane
once nest’s now a grave
full of ashes bitter

thank you, love you
