Gravity 03:27
Gravity I was almost over you Lying bout my truth Let's move in shadows Tonight I see what's not cracked up to be I know my cue What has been lost Will always come in circles after you You know what to do The things that just might have been Will kills us in between It's all so shallow The ghost in you is just the same in me Just let me in
2.
Don’t come knocking Tell me what is keeping you from falling Do you know what's keeping you from falling? You'll never miss it till It's far away If you've been drifting from your calling Have you been drifting from your calling? You'll never listen till It's far away And if you miss someone new Who could drive you home Don't come knocking at my door Anymore If you don't know just what you wanted Have you ever known just you wanted? Maybe it's only just a heart away Do you feel young those silent mornings? Do you feel brave these early dawnings? Where everything's just a light away
3.
Blinded by the dust I have crossed the dreamland Blinded by the dust Pictures of a sunrise That rise until it hurts I keep you deep inside me Every single day I tried so hard to tell you It's all I ever had I travelled through a red sea I found someone to trust And saw good men collapsing Trying to get heard Her innocence is bleeding On a single bed I tried so hard to tell you It's all she's ever had The city lies beneath us Turning into rust Leave me where you found me In a shelter from the storm And everything will end here Just buried in the sand I tried so hard to tell you It's all you've ever had
4.
Low Tide 03:08
Low tide Only lovers left alive Innocence is suicide You might have to leave but I'm sure you'll come back for me If you believe the time is right To lift you up into the stars The blood you need will wash it all into the sea Me I just can't dream The love that you keep is all I got left for me Take me in into the light Show me that I'm still alive Or let me die a thousand new ways tonight
5.
The devil in me Out in the distance She waves in the sea Drowning in circles I quietly hum that song All I wanted was the madman in me No need to worry Here comes the night With all of its glory Leading us on and on All I wanted was the angel in me If you don't come back home If you don't come back home again I'll follow you Hated for wanting Aching to see Whatever you're looking for my dear Will haunt you a lifetime long All I wanted was the devil in me
6.
Empire of light Sparkle in the rain Lighting strikes again Let there be a way To keep it coming Keep it coming As I lie awake Dreaming of the past It all remains the same I saw you coming back to me Life can be almost anything You see Life can be almost anything you want it to be We’re just a touch away It’s one more lie to say I wonder where we’d be If you were coming back to me Life can be almost anything You see Life can be almost anything you want it to be If you let me in this time
7.
Midnight blue Take me back into the river Under the stars that shine for you The light was mine until I saw her If everything is over With so much left to do I may be gone tomorrow Gone in midnight blue I’ll be waiting round the corner I’ll be hiding from the moon Lay me here down by the water I don’t need no queen of sorrow Try to sing me something new There´s no retreat and no surrender
8.
Anywhere high I've been set free This town ain't got a hold on me One way up then one way down It only hurts when you kiss the ground But I'll go anywhere you go Anywhere high Anywhere too low Life is gonna make you think More time is everything you need The big sleep comes like the sweetest sound Don't give up till you break the bounds
9.
Mind Walk 04:37
Mindwalk Did you feel alright? Watching your life pass you by? Or did you feel my love this time? Hold on to the place Where they never knew your name But did you feel my love this time? They cut you loose With a bolt of blue It happens all the time The lies are true And it's nothing new It happens all around You can never be so sure Regrets if only you had known But did feel that low this time? That road is begging you to go The same old struggle to belong But did you feel that road this time?
10.
Hymn 02:59
Hymn Feel everything blow How could you know? Where to begin Here anything goes A river must flow into the sea Live as you dream All is real Until the days are done All is real Sleep As the street glows at your window With birds on the wing Wake Time to belove Time to heal us From everything Live as you dream All is real Until the days are done All is real

Império da luz ou notas sobre um disco

Hello!

Se você está lendo isso, espero que seja porque ouviu ou está prestes a ouvir o terceiro disco que lanço como Fish Magic (“Just a light away”). Em vez de pedir para alguém mais legal e mais interessante que eu para escrever algo sobre o disco, achei por bem desta vez eu mesmo fazer um exercício de memória sobre como cheguei até aqui.

Sorry.

Em dezembro de 2015, eu tinha acabado de lançar o segundo disco do Fish Magic (“Sky High”). Foram dois discos em dois anos seguidos e achei por bem dar um tempo nesse ritmo Roberto Carlos. O problema é que eu continuei compondo. Dessa vez, sem compromisso algum. Apenas empilhando canções. Lancei um single todo eletrônico (“Neon Love”) em 2017 e achei que aquele era o caminho.

Well...

Ano passado me vi com mais de 20 músicas compostas e pela primeira vez tive que escolher canções para um álbum, algo que nunca tive que fazer antes. (Os dois primeiros discos praticamente não tinham sobras. Era realmente a conta do chá). Mandei todas pro Regis Damasceno (baixista do Cidadão Instigado), que produz tudo do Fish Magic comigo. Agora a tarefa era achar um disco dentro dessa sacola que apontava pra todos os lados. Listas vem, listas vão. 10 músicas são escolhidas, há um link entre elas e ele é tudo, menos eletrônico.

A ironia é essa: “Just a light away” tem mais guitarras do que qualquer trabalho que eu já fiz. Em algumas, inclusive, nem consigo negar o clima back to the 90´s ou back to basics, como “Don´t come knocking” e “Low tide". Ao abrir esse portal da juventude, aproveitei também para mudar algumas coisas na fábrica Fish Magic. Trouxemos o grande Clayton Martin (baterista do Cidadão Instigado) para mixar justamente essas duas músicas mais diretas, mais power pop do disco. Bernardo Pacheco mixou o resto do disco, com maestria, assim como nos dois anteriores.

Um dado importante desse disco é que ele foi composto e gravado na ponte aérea entre Rio de Janeiro (onde moro) e Brasília (onde agora trabalho). Esse estado de trânsito permanente está presente de alguma forma nessas músicas e me permitiu ir para lugares antes inexplorados, como no conto sombrio que faço “The devil in me”, uma zona de desconforto que não necessariamente eu gostaria de revisitar...

O curioso céu de Brasília e o horizonte do planalto deixaram marcas. Elas estão espalhadas na ambiência de cada gravação e talvez concentradas em “Empire of light”, um empréstimo meu tomado de Magritte (tks!) para homenagear essa linda e estranha cidade. Além disso, tem, literalmente, o dedo dos personagens daqui. Ivan Bicudo do Sexy Fi, bravo representante da cena alternativa da capital, toca teclado em “Anywhere High”, uma música que finalmente levará o FM para as pistas de dança.

Tenho fé.

“Gravity” acabou sendo escolhida como single. Cordas, violões, jingle jangle surf, uma canção sobre o peso do passado e o ajuste de contas que todos fazemos diariamente. Não dá pra escapar disso.

Can´t escape gravity... Espero que vocês sejam justos com vocês mesmos nesse acerto. Sigo tentando.

Na masterização, dessa vez buscamos outra referência e achamos o Felipe Tichauer, que envelopou o som no Red Traxx Music em Miami (EUA). Com discos de Elza Soares, Marcelo Camelo e Céu no currículo, o Felipe fez o Fish Magic soar grande. Finalizo louvando o trabalho do Regis, a quem eu conheço há mais de 20 anos, mas que sempre me surpreende. Ouça o baixo dele em “Mindwalk” ou a guitarra de 12 cordas em “The devil in me”. Cada nota importa. Uma regra para a vida.
