Step into an ethereal realm with In Circles – a mesmerizing blend of art dream pop and cinematic vibes. We worked with multiple layers and harmonies to give it lightness and richness that actually got compared to the greatness of Enya or Sinéad O'Connor, while keeping its own, art-dream pop meets cinematic vibe. We hope it will transport you into dreams and show you the underwater rainbows we tried to depict in the music video.
Combining footage from our little trip to Sweden, the lovely Schönbrunn zoo, and our own bathroom, the watery ambiance of In Circles talks about that circularity of life and death, the changes that always come to a start, and our own repetitive mistakes. You can run, but you will always get back, one way or the other, and even if you fight that "destiny"; that would be the message to embrace in In Circles.
T: "About In Circles… I loved the song from the start. And the start was actually happening in a circle of three, me, Vii and Yan. One evening, we played, and the words, partly written already, came out absolutely naturally into a simple piano melody. And the whole was imperfect but already ethereal in its imperfection… and then the song slept. For more than a year, the song just slept in the drawer until I rediscovered it, and we finished it because it felt like it had to be finished.
And I was told it is a bit longer and not really appealing to an average person, so it probably won’t be received that well. But I love it anyway, and I hope you will too. Sad & true & poetically tangled, In Circles is about the circle of life and that that circle is not that awesome and shiny and with a happy ending, it always ends the same - with an end. It’s still worth walking that circular road, I think."

Life looks like a way forward The chasing of what might The tunnel with the light And we’ll fight And we’ll fight We’ll fight To get out, moving up To make everything right To reach for the light Still we fight Still we fight We’ll fight And we live in circles We die in circles, too We live in circles That make the world round, you A circle, a ball to throw A roundabout of didn’t knows Didn’t knows Aaaah, didn’t knows Life feels like a way forward Still running to what might And the tunnel with the light Turns right Turns always right Just right We live in circles We die in circles, too We live in circles That make the world round, you A circle, a ball to throw A roundabout of didn’t knows Didn’t knows Aaaah, didn’t knows Life’s a circle We live in circles We die in circles, too All comes back to you But we live in circles We die in circles, too We live in circles That make the world round, you A circle, a ball to throw A roundabout of didn’t knows Didn’t knows Aaaah, didn’t knows Didn’t knows Didn’t knows
