    This is the physical version of our album Liquid Lines which we recorded in two versions. An album in two colours, two moods, two captured moments of expression. The orange version is more energetic and outgoing while the violet version is rather calm and organic. You'll only be able to listen to both versions on CD or vinyl. There will only be a 10 track compilation available online on all streaming platforms.

This is my blue hour This is my sky Or is it heaven I’m searching for the blue light This is my blue hour This is my sky Or is it heaven I’m searching for the blue light For the blue flower that stands for love and desire What am I longing for? Will it take me higher? Higher Higher I am a blue bird and I have the blues sometimes So I sing about love Sometimes I see the sea from above Higher Higher Higher Higher Queen of the wind Saphire eyes She puffs And I rise and I rise and I rise Higher Higher Higher Higher This is my blue hour This is my sky Or is it heaven I’m searching for the blue light Searching for the blue light Searching for the blue light Searching for the blue light Searching for the blue light

Tu préfères la nuit, les aventures dans la pluie Et si je m’ennuie, tu me dis, allons-y, allons-y Une journée te semble être une promesse Pleine de joie et de liberté Comme dans un trésor de perles brillantes Sans peur tu te jettes au dedans Je t’admire pour ton intrépidité, Quand tu racontes tes histoires de tes nouvelles connaissances Je t’écoute, je t’écoute Et sans peur tu te jettes au dedans Tu préfères la nuit, les aventures dans la pluie Et si je m’ennuie, tu me dis, allons-y, allons-y Tu préfères la nuit, les aventures dans la pluie Et si je m’ennuie, tu me dis, allons-y, allons-y Tu préfères la nuit, les aventures dans la pluie Et si je m’ennuie, tu me dis, allons-y, allons-y Tu préfères la nuit, les aventures dans la pluie Et si je m’ennuie, tu me dis, allons-y, allons-y Tu préfères la nuit, les aventures dans la pluie Et si je m’ennuie, tu me dis, allons-y, allons-y Tu préfères la nuit, les aventures dans la pluie Et si je m’ennuie, tu me dis, allons-y, allons-y Tu préfères la nuit, les aventures dans la pluie Et si je m’ennuie, tu me dis, allons-y, allons-y Tu préfères la nuit, les aventures dans la pluie Et si je m’ennuie, tu me dis, allons-y, allons-y ohoh

Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh The texture of words Unspoken words It hurts on and under my skin A sealed mouth It cannot give But it can’t take either And we starve Of a loss of words Ooh Ooh The texture of words Unspoken words It feels cold on and under my skin The things you don’t say They hover above And they build up, they build up And we starve Of a loss of words Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh

Lullabies are for children Lullabies are for you Lullabies are for children And you ain’t no child no more Tell me it will get easier Tell me that you’ll stay Tell me you’re just sleeping Not forever gone away I know You will go I know You will go I know You will go I know You will go

Le roi se lève sous Le soleil turquoise Un rêve outremer Un souvenir primaire Dans mes draps d'azur Ton odeur d'un jour Ô le bruit de ton sourire Mon esprit devient sourd J'en ai plein le cœur Je les étale ici De si intenses bonheurs Assez forts pour toute la vie Les apportant sans crier gare Elle devient toujours plus belle Chacun déversant son art Ouvrir des routes parallèles Aussi intense qu'électrique Il faut écouter ces maux Parfois des coups, des piques En font grandir sous la peau J'en ai plein le cœur Je les étale ici De si intenses bonheurs Assez forts pour toute la vie Les apportant sans crier gare Elle devient toujours plus belle Chacun déversant son art Ouvrir des routes parallèles Les reflets dans les yeux Des filles et des garçons Ne peuvent être vairons Mais saphir amoureux Dans mes draps d'azur Ton odeur d'un jour Ô le bruit de ton sourire Mon esprit devient sourd J'en ai plein le cœur Je les étale ici De si intenses bonheurs Assez forts pour toute la vie Les apportant sans crier gare Elle devient toujours plus belle Chacun déversant son art Ouvrir des routes parallèles

about

Olicía is the band of Fama M’Boup and Anna-Lucia Rupp. They live in Berlin and Copenhagen, Denmark, and share a common base in Dresden, Germany, where they met studying music, founding their own label o-cetera soon after. The two are also members of Sophie Hunger’s current band supporting her latest album “Halluzinationen”.

“Liquid Lines”, the debut album by Olicía, arrives after two Eps in 2018 and 2019 and countless concerts in the last years. It was recorded with Miles Deiaco at Monoton Studio, Berlin, and will be released on October 1st 2021. Guests on “Liquid Lines” include experimental French harpist Laura Perrudin, Drummer Demian Kappenstein (ÄTNA), and the songwriter and bass clarinetist Wencke Wollny (Karl die Große).

“Liquid Lines” is going to take on two different forms. There will be a regular 10-track digital album on streaming services, whereas the physical album is going to be a 20 track/two disk affair: each Lp or Cd functioning as an entirely different version of the album with regards to lyrics, instrumentation, grooves, collaboration partners, or even language. It makes for a listening experience that is quite unique: Immersing oneself in the dreamlike variations of these songs as the two women are emphasizing, obscuring or replacing certain elements, oftentimes actually veering off into something completely new and unexpected. That’s how Fama and Anna-Lucia would like this album to be understood - as a reflection on the liquid lines of demarcation of what constitutes a song. And - in the grander scheme - the infinite possibilities that constitute art and life itself. The “Liquid Lines” of tweaking and amending, bending and adjusting, of thinking, unthinking, and rethinking the same thing.

it rings, buzzes & booms when two women have more than two voices, you want to burst when loops, synthesizers, basslines and percussion take over when outfits match the texture of sound your eyes and ears fuse when orchestrated voices enwrap you like velvet and gold it clashes, hums & dances
