about

'The Elephants' is taken from TWISK's upcoming album 'Intimate Polity' (releases 18/06/2021 via brillJant sounds)

The song ‚The Elephants‘ hangs like a comic strip balloon in the pilot’s mind as they look out the window of their elephant and see another elephant flying only 300 feet away from them.
And the mid air collision is spectacular. The elephants look like two, tall awkward people getting tangled up together in a revolving door during an earthquake.

lyrics

Lead the elephants up to the roof
Blue sky
/
Make the elephants loosen their hoofs
Then fly
/
Set them free
they’re not meant to live with you
in your kitchen, in your bedroom
not meant for you
and your bathtub
Set them free
and your migrane, and your light sleep
Set them free
and your cynic, and your own creep
/
And as you kiss them goodbye
the elephants cry
/
Set them free
Blue sky
Then fly

'The Elephants' was written and played by the band TWISK—Lennart Thiem, Luka Lenzin, Mario Schöning—, recorded in June by Rick McPhail at the upper room. They waited until November when Mario mixed the tunes in New York and Luka designed the artwork under the moniker it's a counterproduct! It seemed like the thing to do. Fabian Tormin mastered the song. Thank You for listening. What do you see in a mirror seamlessly pressed against another mirror?
