about

Extrait du communiqué de presse :

Avec «Montage», pièce d’ouverture et chanson-titre de cette proposition portant presque trop bien son nom, Arelking laisse présager un voyage non-linéaire, jamais stable ni prévisible. Ici, on se plaît à tordre les cerveaux. Démarrant sur un avant-goût trafiqué d’éléments combinés se retrouvant dans sa suite — tels qu’une mordante ligne de basse empruntée à la groovy «Blue Whale Serenade in B minor», un rendu live de la dissonante «Traffic» et un piano altéré de «Montagne» offerts en une agile juxtaposition —, le maxi se décline comme un tout à la fois texturé et doté d’une grande richesse rythmique. De la lourdeur entremêlée à des guitares et des synthétiseurs aussi atmosphériques qu’inquiétants. Une certaine insistance, même. Telles sont des constantes certainement perceptibles tout au long de ce nouveau mini-album comptant sept plages que livre le quatre-têtes.

Track Name: Palisade
Inside a dream I had a glimpse of a publicity
That contained a strange philosophy, for everybody
They were forcing people to buy their useless shits
Packaging their craps into flourished kits, they almost got me!

And since I've looked a couple of time behind
Protecting myself like a porcupine, they're still cunning
Running in all directions to avoid their grasping hits
I'm still forced to buy their plastic shits, whenever I can...


I am still convulsing, Iam still convulsing
If I had a million shields, I would not be affraid of buying things...


Inside a dream I had glimpse of lucidity
That's when I realised the lack of privacy, they almost got me!
And since I've looked a couple of places beside
Still haven't found anywhere to hide, we rushed into...
They were forcing people to buy their useless craps
Packaging their shits into glorious acts, they couldn't react!
And since I've looked a couple of time away
Making myself like a palisade,
They're still aiming, They're still aiming, They're still aiming, and
They're still aiming, They're still aiming, They're still aiming,
Whenever they can...


I am still convulsing, Iam still convulsing
If I had a million shields, I would not be affraid of buying things...
Track Name: BLUE WHALE serenade in B minor
I’m alone despite the fact that there’s
Too many people that likes to stare
Slaughter houses in construction chains
Mountains of delectable destructions

I feel like I was a shrimp, in a sea of blue whale pimps

Other morbidities or life hook-hanging
The peak doesn’t exist
Eternal snow, frozen spirits
In a meanless existence craterium…

I feel like I was a shrimp, in a sea of blue whale pimps

Falling into a dark hole
I wished it could be much mellow but sour
A little canoe on the ocean of life
Must not choose the wrong shore

I feel like I was a shrimp, in a sea of blue whale pimps

Some are hostile and dried-up
Wet water deep and black
White and endless desert
Should we buy some red instead ?

I feel like I was a shrimp, in a sea of blue whale pimps
Track Name: Traffic
Such a strange and electric vibe covers the city's skies tonight
Compressed thoughts pushing in a funnel, I think I’m giving up
As I try to keep 'em out of sight

And I say
Everyone inside my head So


So I see these people rushing on me, hurry on me, dancing on me
And I stare at them abusing my body

Not everyone at the same time oh
Not everyone in the same space
There’s a place for all of you outside and elsewhere

And I say
Everyone outside my head Stop!

Nonononononononono
Please stop
Track Name: Somebody in the attic
Everytime I hear a second opinion than mine
That would be the one upstairs
And everytime I try to investigate
Something drives my attention away

Crawling up, silently, sort it out
Whispers in my cavities quite oftenly
Shut it off, still's on, shout again
I heard that voice several times
And still, it never came out

And everyone inside
They scares the shit out of me!
If there's someone above
Then I'm waiting patiently


Everytime I hear that wood floor crack
That would be the one inside
And everytime I try to yell a little louder
Wonders if someone's in the attic

Crawling up, silently, sort it out
Whispers in my cavities quite oftenly
Shut it off, still's on, shout again
I heard that voice so many times and
Now it's really coming out
And now I think it's really coming out


And everyone inside
They scares the shit out of me!
Stay close to the light
Don't flip into the dark side...
Track Name: Wait, now
Wait now for fireballs
Wait now for fireballs

Wait now for answers
Wait now not later…

Such a beautiful panorama
Everything disappears
Wait now for devil’s fingers
Wait now for fireballs

Wait now to watch the show
Wait now to see…
The end
