Rose 04:04
Rose in my head You start to bloom Warmth that spreads And feels alive again And feels alive again And feels alive again And feels alive again I’ve been shutting down The memories of my flesh I have scrutinized  The howls and the tears  And now I find myself here Embracing your existence In the form of a blurry smile Lit by neon You disappear Lit by my fear You offer me your tears You offer me your tears You offer me your tears You offer me your tears I’ve been shutting down The memories of my flesh I have scrutinized  The howls and the tears  And now I find myself here Embracing your existence In the form of a blurry smile I’ve been shutting down The memories of my flesh I have scrutinized  The howls and the tears  And now I find myself here Embracing your existence In the form of a blurry smile I’ve been shutting down The memories of my flesh I have scrutinized  The howls and the tears  And now I find myself here Embracing your existence In the form of a blurry smile In the form of a blurry smile In the form of a blurry smile

Tokyo 03:07
I’m swinging round and round On this urban jungle Hanging by a thread no one owns It took twenty years To find my equilibrium And in just twenty seconds it has gone Tail wind, head wind collide East wind, west wind bump into each other Tail wind, head wind collide East wind, west wind bump into each other In my absent mind A thug of war takes place And I don’t even know who plays What I should do and what I would Never are the same And this is driving me insane Tail wind, head wind collide East wind, west wind bump into each other Tail wind, head wind collide East wind, west wind bump into each other

Mother 05:14
Mother I’m sorry If I’m not the one you wanted Father Forgive me If I’m not what you expected I’m trying I’m trying But it’s so hard to go through I’m trying I’m trying But it’s so hard to see through I tried to settle And I tried to travel I tried to manage and I tried to cover I tried to hide I tried to show The point is There’s something that I don’t know and I’m trying I’m trying But it’s so hard to go through I’m trying I’m trying But it’s so hard to look through My love please Come soon ‘Cause I’m tired of roaming and want to find you My dreams please Come true I’m tired of surviving and I all I want is to Start crying I’m crying It’s not so hard to go through it anymore I’m crying I’m crying I’m crying I’m crying I’m crying…

Blind And insecure You see the faces of a lifetime fading And now You don’t know If you’ll find an island where to grow Goodbyes Are the curse of our nights Goodbyes I’m sure we’ll have our time I’m staying I’m staying I’m not going anywhere without you Brave And fair You feel the basement of your castle shaking And now You don’t know If you’ll find a sky where to glow Goodbyes Are the curse of our nights Goodbyes I’m sure we’ll have our time I’m staying I’m staying I’m not going anywhere

Corrupt 03:27
We’ve lost our empathy We’ve lost our feelings We’ve lost our ecosystems based on trust Sliding doors are closing Mouths are shutting Individuality is ruling harsh Down inside there lies a monster Down inside of us Down inside there lies a monster Down inside of us We’ve lost our empathy We’ve lost our feelings We’ve lost our ecosystems based on trust Sliding doors are closing Mouths are shutting Individuality is ruling harsh Down inside there lies a monster Down inside of us Down inside there lies a monster Down inside of us…

Komorebi 04:42
Bushes and ashes You turn into a tree How does it feel To breath? Flickers and flashes And the pouring rain How does it feel To live again Sleeping in the dew Are you cold? Or do you embrace The dawn? Where we come from Is where I wanna go to Where we come from Is home Rivers and basins You thaw into the sea How does it feel To sway Leaves and dust In the dirty haze How does it feel To be afraid? Blending with the moss As the water falls Is this Where I belong? Where we come from Is where I wanna go to Where we come from Is home Where we come from Is where I wanna go to Where we come from Is home Where we come from Is where I wanna go to Where we come from Is home

Down my roots are shaking But my body is strong I am suffering and aching But I’m strong Down my sight is blinded But I still can hear I am struggling and fighting But I’m here I am struggling and fighting But I’m here I am struggling and fighting But I’m here Down my sight is blinded But I still can hear I am struggling and fighting But I’m here I am struggling and fighting But I’m here I am struggling and fighting But I’m here I’m sinking in my blood I’m sinking in my blood I’m sinking in my blood I’m sinking in my blood…

There you go, once again Whispering in my limbs Tethering my electricity And then releasing it Oh master All of a sudden Releasing it While the game of life Streams through your window And the game of death Has hit your door All of a sudden Oh master You make me sore And the cave of the wind Is an endless maze So sweet so sweet So sore so sore Will you ever breath again? And the mist approaches fast Your core, and the time you’ve got at last Has gone, and the life you’ve spent so fast Is over, and your uncontaminated lust Is sitting on your mind’s throne Is sitting on your mind’s throne Is sitting on your mind’s throne Is sitting on your mind’s throne And the cave of the wind Is an endless maze So sweet so sweet So sore so sore Will you ever breath again? And the cave of the wind Is an endless maze So sweet so sweet So sore so sore Will you ever breath again? And the cave of the wind Is an endless maze So sweet so sweet So sore so sore Will you ever breath again? Will you ever breath again? Will you ever breath again?

Melancholia 03:30
We always say We live for the “here and now” But this veil Doesn’t go away Is this melancholia? Or just the fact That the here and now Has an expiration date? What I know is that I wish That this circumscribed Frame of time Circumscribed Frame of time Will last on my skin for a long time Will be at my fingertips When the world will get dark And the air heavy and clogged But in your eyes I see Immense fields to explore And shimmering flickers And hunting shadows And a little you At the end Waving goodbye Relentlessly Waving goodbye Is this melancholia? Or just the fact That the here and now Has an expiration date? What I know is that I wish That this circumscribed Frame of time Circumscribed Frame of time Will last on my skin for a long time Will be at my fingertips When the world will get dark And the air heavy and clogged

about

Imagine to find yourself on the other side of the world, in Tokyo, at barely 25 years of age, working in one of the biggest cities on the planet, in a country at the polar opposite of the western culture. Imagine to spend a good three years there while slowly starting to understand its mental and physical mechanisms, constantly attracted by them and at the same time pulled away from the weight of the distance. Imagine how this would make you grow up and change... then imagine to go back where you came from. It's not easy to make sense of all you've seen and lived. It takes time, and a way.  Lavinia Siardi found her way with an album, Komorebi, released under the moniker Flamingo. An album that talks about an experience of experiences, Komorebi gives its name to a Japanese word that can only be translated with the periphrasis: "light that filters through the tree's leaves". Ten tracks that encapsulate three years in Lavinia's life, from the smallest fragments (Rose), to the concept of isolation and alienation (Tokyo), while dealing with being a woman in a very competitive environment (Sinking In My Blood) and struggling with other people's expectations (Mother) or the absurdity of the dehumanization of immigrants (Corrupt) in a context where the alien is you, and not the other. Komorebi is an album in which Tokyo's skyscraper are constantly in the background, while the front of the story is that intricate, irreversible passage to adulthood, painted by Flamingo as bluntly as possible. Though this album still navigates in the dream-pop world (as in Lavinia's debut EP from 2016), the sound is now more aggressive, distorted, almost shoegaze and at times screamed, as if Lavinia threw every loud thought from her mind into the music. Part of the credit goes as well to Giacomo Carlone who recorded, produced, and mixed the album, on top of being Flamingo's drummer.

about

We Were Never Being Boring Collective Italy

We want music to never turn into something boring for us. It would mean that we have become boring. Because music does not die with mp3′s or copyright: boredom is what brings it down, when it becomes a habit. All we need is a small do-it-yourself collective, as tiny as a simple smile. ... more
