about

It's been quite some time since the debut album of Moa Bones. His long-awaited second album is titled "Spun" and was definitely worth the wait.

"Spun" was recorded in his room, during fall 2014. Moa Bones has produced the whole album, the sound of which returns again to the familiar paths of homemade and lo-fi aesthetics, like his early demos. "Spun" is an experiential album influenced from country music, the blues and American singing-songwriting of the 60s. Travelling, new experiences and unexpected meetings in recent years have taken the form of vortex and adventure for the artist. He lives and rotates within this, exploring the way to the light. All these experiences were the inspiration for the songs of the album that at times are self-psychoanalytic and sometimes express passions, desires and wishful thinking, as extracts of a five-year mini autobiography.

“Spun” is out on cd and digital album on May 25th and on vinyl (incl.bonus cd) in June via Inner Ear.

Track Name: The Journey
Last night I fooled around, downtown in dizzy lanes
I got a taxi back home and the driver claimed
he once had been a rich man, for years in Cape Town
but life turned its back on him, and never turned around

He rolled in royal places, in luxury hotels
in women and cocaine addicted, in habits of his wealth
till money flew away with a wasteful wind
then Thailand called him for a wife, who knows maybe a kid

it was love at first sight, in pleasure's isle he writhed
in city's alleys pleased her and she pleased him twice
she breathed in him a freedom, a soothing rippled waltz
but took away his beauty and left him in a song
to dance among
red and yellow
leaves of fall
Track Name: Take It All Away
Barefoot I walk through cyclones of fire
they burn it all down like a great empire
I chase my dreams in burning nightmares
and when I wake up, those flames are everywhere

My body is weak and lava is on my back
but I go on cause the fire is in my heart
digging for home in a homeless world
one day I'll fly though I'm a flightless bird

Where's the ocean now
to wash my soul somehow
where's the tidal wave
the everlasting rain
to take it all away

The mountains cry and volcanos roar
spitting their fireballs like dragons making war
there's nothing left or nowhere else to go
but I go on through fire to the unknown
Track Name: Long For A Change
I know a man who came to be
a fading glow in given promises
a burning fire inside a tear
a caring mother

I know a man who came to be
a civil war, a boy hiding a beast
a cast away in open seas
a loving brother of the world

I know a man who came to be
a wild hungry lion and a prey
a freefall in a floating dream
a rolling lover

I tell you now, he came to be
a nation in exile, a rising tide
a flowing silence staring at
the urban sky
and when I think I don’t know him
or that he ‘s a thousand miles away,
I find him everyday in me
as I long for a change
Track Name: Hey
Don't pretend babe, like there's nothing going on
I know you want it, I can't go wrong

Babe you ‘re rolling down my way

Dance for me yeah, show me what you got
All I see is you naked in devil's throne

Babe you’ re rolling down my way

I 've been treated like a fool before
Now I want you, tomorrow I don't know

Babe you’ re rolling down my way
Track Name: Come On
come on sail with me in a colourful world
like penguins and seals, we 'll dive everywhere
in the thundering rain, in the silence of fields
come on fly with me, in the bluest of blue
over the mountain tops, on the horizon's edge
where the sun goes down and it rises again,
come out of the winds and the storm
deep in your soul,

babe our home is the dawn

come on run with me, through the concrete forests
hear the echoing sounds of creatures and birds
go leave all your nightmares
under your bed
come on find with me your compass, your pillow
there are no borderlines no country for us
just dream for a while and forget the past
come out of the winds and the storm
deep in your soul,

babe our home is the dawn
Track Name: Once Upon A Time
And the sea will be in its wildest
like a furious beast untamed,
swallowing all your traces
taking you away

And the skies will cry an ocean
And the winds will blow the day
This very moment of goodbye
still so hard for me to say it

And the storm will be so violent
Outside but more in me
I ‘ll be homeless, I ‘ll feel broken
I know how ‘s gonna be

look at me now, how I'm hangin
from a memory remained
how I tickle all those feelings
how I 'm dragged out in the rain

And the spring will come in green dress,
light will roll by the trees
bringing life back in the forest
leaving you in yesterday
Track Name: Wake Up
Wake up
Blow up my mind
Like balloons
we ‘re divin in the sky

what is known
soon will be forgotten
are we still
an unknown God not rotten

Who will be hidden from his fate
Caught in sneaky webs
Of right time or late

All we need is a change
All the shades of past
Soon will be dust

we ‘ll find new troubles on our way
but we own ourselves from today
you gotta be me
I gotta be you
To break the cage
