about

London Lion was written during a residency in Comacina (IT) after seeing Bob Dylan's documentary, No Direction Home.
It is about a search for duality (city versus jungle vibe) and a dialogue between the masculine and feminine qualities we all carry within us.
It's about conquering your own place and keep on moving. Dare to jump and keep looking for answers because questions are often more interesting.

lyrics

If these questions

Are the right ones

You should ask them yourself
If these answers
Could unblind us
Let us forward
To the end 

You can learn
Ways to freeze time

But you can't stop it 

Can't you? 

Keep it light

It's how you show me
But this is my call
This is my cue

I am taking the train
To go under
I’m learning a lot from London

What if

A lion comes

And eats my heart out
Never miss a chance
Dream, don't regret

Is this question
The right one
You should ask
Yourself 

Could the answer

Unblind us

Let us forward
To the end

You can learn
Ways to cheat time
But you can't stop it

Can’t you? 


What if

A lion comes

And eats my heart out
Never miss a chance
Dream, don't regret 


I am taking the train
To go under
I’m learning a lot from London

about

Samowar Antwerp, Belgium

Samowar is the electropop music of Leen Diependaele, who uses a loop station to layer and distort her warm and vulnerable voice over electronic beats. This results in a set of fragile songs described as deformed, mutated, seemingly sweet and cuddly, but oh so ruthless. The Samowar electro-pop flirts with elements of techno and the avant-garde, making your mind a sweet mess! ... more
