Track comments ”Failure Anthems”

  • 1. “Rise and shine”

Time to get up! Somewhat inspired by the intro on Bravo 6’s debut album Autolove.

Additional personnel: violins – Thomas von Wachenfeldt

  • 2. “Dress up”

Most of us don’t wake up in make up. It is carefully applied, brick by brick constructing the facade.

  • 3. “He says She says”

Two people in a bed watching/streaming late night tv-shows quite a bit into their relationship. Can you hear the “cut to commercial”-music when they sneak out in the kitchen for more snacks, continuing the anti-communication?

Additional personnel: drums – Daniel Trobell, backing vocals – Josefine Wassler, trumpets – Jonne Bentlöv, saxophones – Andreas Andersson

  • 4. “Random sounds”

Inspired by the eerie feel of the main theme of  Swedish/Danish TV-series“Bron” – “Hollow talk” by Choir of young believers. Lyrics about the one who can never shut up and always need to make a humorous twist, regardless of subject – thus missing out of  some of the most important bits of life.

Additional personnel: backing vocals – Josefine Wassler

  • 5. “You can’t break me”

You may do all you can to me, but the light in me will never fade.

Additional personnel: violins – Thomas von Wachenfeldt

  • 6. “Call your friends”

So hungover it is impossible to tell for sure if you are a vampire or if you’re not. Inspired by “The Twelve”, the second book of the “The Passage”-trilogy by Justin Cronin.

  • 7. “Place to be”

It took until the end of the world for Jack to realise what’s the most important, but we already know he’s a slow learner. Written on the same day that my family received bad news.

Additional personnel: violins – Thomas von Wachenfeldt

  • 8. “LUCY (inhale/exhale)“

This the moment that calls for a smoke.

Additional personnel: backing vocals – Josefine Wassler

  • 9. “No you No me”

Jack’s darkest moment so far. The selfishness, the prevarication, the loss of empathy and insight.

Additional personnel: backing vocals – Josefine Wassler

  • 10. “Haunted”

Jack’s darkest moment so far. The selfishness, the prevarication, the loss of empathy and insight.

Additional personnel: backing vocals – Josefine Wassler

  • 11. “8848 (album version)“

Setting out on the quest knowing there is no way back but unwilling to admit it.

Additional personnel: backing vocals – Josefine Wassler

  • 12. “Are You Being Home”

Two people, one harsh truth, no future.
