about

In life, as hard as it is, you don’t want to just steep in your grief. Sometimes, you need to just put your glitter dress on and dance your ass off!  –  daniela sarda

This is a grownup record about some grownup things, something rather unusual for the genre. - rico baumann



Along the way, we both went through some extremely tragic episodes, which had a lasting impact on us as individuals. These experiences stripped away many of our deeply held illusions regarding life. Making this album was very much about recovering from grief and figuring out ways to break through the numbness that it causes. Hence ,it’s safe to say that  this record is a measure of our growth as people and artists. We were forced to ask ourselves some pretty challenging questions, like: how do you let others in when you are damaged and feel extremely fragile? How much of yourself do you have to give to somebody when you commit to a relationship? What is personal liberation, like really? What does it mean to have a society where relationships are mediated by technology, where physicality is removed from the experience? How do you reconcile your obligations to your partner with being attracted to other people? Why do we feel so alone, at times, even if we are surrounded by people that truly care for us? This record was about finding ways to live a life and make art post loss. When I look at the cover of Wrapped in Air, which was our first record, we almost look like wax figures. We are so perfect, there’s not a single blemish there. I can honestly say that we are no longer like that, this facade had crumbled. Consequently, our music became more humanised.



We started writing Made of Glass only three weeks after our first record came out. The first song that we recorded was Made of Glass and this became the conceptual and aesthetic blueprint for all the songs that followed. It’s funny, though, because it took us three years to complete it. It’s also very telling of our process. There were no deadlines, no pressure and, at some point, we thought there might not ever be a record. We would just meet at the studio, sometimes for a few days in a row, talk life and just let the music happen. This was our psychotherapy, just friends helping each other to work through stuff. There was no formula, we just traded ideas, wrote and produced together. It was so visceral and immediate. There are songs on here that were recorded using the computer mic only because the emotion was so powerful that trying to recreate it with a better set-up would have probably killed it. We used a lot of glassy sounds in the arrangements, many of which are actual glass that we recorded. The fact that our first record dealt with air and now we are dealing with glass, instead, is also telling. Glass is still very light and delicate, but it’s much more physical than air. And we love how glass has this artificiality about it, when you see it on photos it almost looks like a glitch, but in reality it’s "fully analog." When you’re very vulnerable, it’s hard to be honest in this direct way, so you’re always trying to find a way to create a comfortable distance. Maybe this is why we wrapped all this personal stuff in this seemingly shiny and artificial sound.

Track Name: Made Of Glass
Let me in, let me in

Let me see through everything

Everything I don’t know yet

I like it

Let you in, let you in

I can’t promise anything

Anything you don’t know yet

I fight it



Push push push the limit

Push push push the limit

I can’t get enough of you



You’ll see my heart is made of glass

I don’t wanna let anyone in no



Keep me in, keep me in

I can ask for everything

It’s not in your power to deny it

Let you in, let you in
I can never let you win
If you try to hard then you will break it



Push push push the limit

Push push push the limit

I can’t get enough of you



You’ll see my heart is made of glass

I don’t wanna let anyone in no
Track Name: Digital Love
Are you made of
Are you made of flesh and blood
Are your touches
Like the deepest cut
Please stay with me
I know your heart doesn’t beat
Through the distance
You will hear my plea

It feels so good but it isn’t the same
You say it’s real but I know it’s digital love
I feel the heat but where is the flame
You say it’s real but I know it’s digital love

Love, don’t you forget about me
I won’t forget about you
If you carve my name in a tree 
I still know it’s digital love

Are you different
Are you too different from me
What’s the value
Of a real caress
Can you show me
What is running through your veins
Sometimes lying
Helps to save a love

It feels so good but it isn’t the same
You say it’s real but I know it’s digital love
Tell me where have you been the other night
You say it’s real but I know it’s digital love
Love, don’t you forget about me
I won’t forget about you
If you carve my name in a tree
I still know it’s digital love

Digital love, know it’s digital Love
Track Name: Share
I remember thinking about
How it would feel
How it would feel to be with you every day and night
But now that we are sleeping close
I don’t feel the same no more

Why, why do we have to share
All the things we bear
Can’t we get back to where we were
Is it too hard for you
Is it too hard for me
All I wish for

We gained intimacy
You were still the one I pictured lying next to me
But now that we are sleeping close
I don’t feel the same no more

Why, why do we have to share
All the things we bear
Can’t we get back to where we were
Is it too hard for you
Is it too hard for me
All I wish for

Tell me secrets, tell me lies
Hold my hand, lock my eyes
Tell me feelings, tell me not
Tell me something I forgot
Tell me feelings, tell me not
Tell me something I forgot

Why, why do we have to share
All the things we bear
Can’t we get back to where we were
Is it too hard for you
Is it too hard for me
All I wish for
Track Name: The Night Is So Cold
Man is proud he got so far

Made his fortune fought the war

But he looks tired

Tears make him quiet

Man was patient got no sleep

Now the time has come to reap

But he looks tired

Life made him quiet

We may never find what we've been looking for 


Mercy



Why am I so restless
The night is so cold

Man was patient got no sleep

Now the time has come to reap

But he looks tired

Life made him quiet

We may never find what we've been looking for
Track Name: Liberty (Ah Ah)
Restricted love needs to be free
Liberty ain’t dead
Search for more, get wings to soar
Time to look ahead
Don’t need a house, don't need a home
Just need a place to grow
Unicity is just a dream
Wave the flag for hope

Tell me you have the courage to come with me
Follow me and sing along when I sing, I sing, I sing this song, oh

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

I don't need time, just need a friend
To fill the emptiness
Leave all behind, don’t turn around
The world needs a caress
The story ends and now it’s time
To catch the elephant
If it’s not white, then you are lucky
Got a treasure left

Tell me you have the courage to come with me
Follow me and sing along when I sing, I sing, I sing this song, oh

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah (Liberty)
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah, I sing this song, oh

I want to be, you want to be
We want to be, want to be free
I want to be, you want to be
We want to be (Liberty)
I want to be, you want to be
We want to be, want to be free
I want to be, you want to be, oh
Want to be free, oh

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah (Oh)
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah (Oh)
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah (Oh)
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah, I sing this song, oh

My, my, my, my liberty (Oh)
My, my, my, my, my liberty (Oh)
My, my, my, my liberty (Oh)
My, my, my, my

Liberty
My liberty
Track Name: Close Call
You get a little bit close to me
I’m a little bit scared of you
With a little bit of time you’ll see
I'll get a little bit over you

Maybe you and I
It's a close call
Maybe me and you
Are shadow and light
Maybe tonight
Is a close call for us
Tonight it’s a free fall

Don’t get too close
I know that it could fall apart
We both want it from the heart
I know you knew it from the start
Maybe I can be your close call

Don't tell me that you’re feeling more than me
I’m sure it’s more than just an accident
I know it’s precious but not meant to be
I still listen to the songs you sent

Maybe you and I
It's a close call
Maybe me and you
Are shadow and light
Maybe tonight
Is a close call for us
Tonight it’s a free fall

Don’t get too close
I know that it could fall apart
We both want it from the heart
I know you knew it from the start
Maybe I can be your close call

Why must a sinner be evil
I know that you are the devil
Your lips stickier than honey
You say that you don’t need many

Don’t get too close
I know that it could fall apart
We both want it from the heart
I know you knew it from the start
Maybe I can be your close call
Track Name: Your Skin
Your skin is so soft
My fragile heart can’t handle it
One day we’re gonna be separated
Just the thought of it
Makes me wanna loose my fear
So you don’t have to feel it

What will I do
When your breath turns into air
What will I do
When your eyes close forever

I will always be there for you

Your hands are so soft
I don’t ever want to let them go
Even if you make it on your own
Sometimes life is so cruel
And we have to handle so much pain
In the end it’s not what will remain

What will you do
When my breath turns into air
What will you do
When my eyes close forever

I will always be there for you
Track Name: Close (Secrets & Lies)
Why should I be close to you

Tell me Secrets
Tell me lies
Hold my hand

Lock my eyes

Tell me feelings
Tell me not
Tell me something
I forgot

Why do we have to share
All the things we bare
Can’t we get back to where we were
Is it so hard for you
Is it so hard for me
I forgot
Track Name: Just The Look
When all the lights are turning red to green
I pick my favorite dress
While I am waiting for my limousine
I put my lipstick on (forrest green)
I know my night is getting beautiful
Don’t look for chemistry
Tonight I shine
I just skip the line
It's dark mysterious


Don’t wanna stay
Don’t wanna leave
In the middle
Of the night, of the day
Don’t wanna stay
Don’t wanna leave
In the middle
Of the night, of the day


It’s just the look
When I’m dancing on my own, I guess you took
That the wrong way, better leave me by myself
Stop, I don't need somebody else

It’s just the look

I hear the DJ play my favorite song
I get to sing along (la la)
The night is a blur when you're having fun
I feel we all die young
All I remember or forget about
I dance until there’s nothing left
But I still see you standing at the bar

Two dancers in the dark


Don’t wanna stay
Don’t wanna leave
In the middle
Of the night, of the day
Don’t wanna stay
Don’t wanna leave
In the middle
Of the night, of the day


It’s just the look
When I’m dancing on my own, I guess you took
That the wrong way, better leave me by myself
Stop, I don't need somebody else
Track Name: Admit It
I am afraid

I have to say

That I am leaving

All the nights of dreaming

Don't be afraid

Please don't be sad

Colors are changing

On pictures we are painting

Can't we admit it

I am not strong

I am not weak

Don't try to catch me

My presence isn’t fading

Give it some time

Don’t fake a smile

Try to make sense of

A heart that is empty

Empty like the words
We have left
You have left

Can't we admit it
