released November 26, 2015

´KOLORIT´ marks our first proper digital release. The free EP combines atmospheric textures, broad dynamics and bittersweet harmonies. Moody laptop electronics meet with swirling guitars, warm analog bass and cut up vocal samples. It´s an affair that can be subtle at times but is a sucker for the passion in the detail.

Written, produced and mixed by DEKODA.
Mastered by salzmastering.
Lyrics by Marius Gutowski.

Artwork: blackclouddesign & Caroline Hebel.

Track Name: Kolorit
your eyes are barely open, walls sterile and pale.
in a cave with no window i watched you floating down the drain.
When sleep overcomes and washed me apart
your body is a landfill your ghost state of the art.

would you rather bring:
a change in your color
just like a brand new dawn?

but when you arrived, no longer the offer.
what does it take to let you lie awake?
a glimpse in your eyes, the tides will not alter.
a twitch in your blindfold, you changed the lead.

the days all bend the red to black.
machines they hum their tunes.
at night nobody´s watching I
leak sweetening in your wounds.

would you rather bring:
a change in your color
just like a brand new dawn?

but when you arrived, no longer the offer.
what does it take to let you lie awake?
a glimpse in your eyes the tides will not alter
i´ve been so blind while you rage in my head.

Track Name: Caracas
you were calling me out
when i was more than alone.
and when you sift through the attic
counting all my stones.
your skin´s too hard to live in
i´ll wear my feathers like a groom.
it doesn´t make a difference
on a salty afternoon.

they say the devil´s in the details
but i can watch him from a far.
he holds the cord to every tiny vessel of you heart .
the louder the static, the louder you scream.
It doesn´t make a difference for you and me.

you are soaking the sun
i wear these clouds on my lids
and when the darkness binds you
you were out playing dumb with the down struck kids
don´t feed the rook within you
cause he will push you off the ledge
but i remember you bolder
with the sun in your hands outstretched.

they say the devil´s in the details
but i can watch him from a far.
he holds the cord to every tiny vessel of you heart .
the louder the static, the louder you scream.
It doesn´t make a difference for you and me.
Track Name: Spule
i am the deer in the headlight
i wouldn´t change a thing.
And when we´re down in the alley, I wanna let you win.
With all the fire and all that sound that no one can recall.
When you would be my cornerstone to out rival them all.

No stars are aligned when i´m coming down
i´m taking a fall.
But you wore your eyes like a paramour
i´m high then i´m small.
cause you´re the one with the quiet hand
no repent, everything is right till dawn.
and i´ll be right where you left off
you keep me coming back for more.

I am the day when it´s overflown
You are the avalanche.
And when you break down my barriers, I wanna let you win.
With all your horns and your false alarms, that no one can recall.
When you were too heavy to lift
We´d synchronize the fall.

No stars are aligned when i´m coming down
i´m taking a fall.
But you wore your eyes like a paramour
i´m high then i´m small.
cause you´re the one with the quiet hand
no repent, everything is right till dawn.
and i´ll be right where you left off
you keep me coming back for more.
