about

LAYERS is a collaboration EP.
The A-side of the record contains three Olicía tracks which all illuminate time, the here and now and a look into the future. It is a study of temporal and musical dimensions that overlap and merge just like the element of loops in our music - layer by layer.
On the B-side of the record are three remixes of these songs. We put our tracks in the hands of good friends and wonderful producers. Our voices, basslines and drum recordings got rearranged and restructured in order to create new music with whole new colors - layer by layer.

By downloading the EP you'll get "Afterlife (Frank Funk Remix)" as a free bonus track.

about

Olicía Berlin, Germany

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

Anna-Lucia Rupp - voc, fx, guit, pocketpno, qarqaba

Fama M’Boup - voc, fx, kora, dr pad, asalato, qarqaba

Track Name: Time
the one and only opponent
of summer golden moments
is time
ooh, time can be harsh

the one and only opponent
it takes away the golden times
ooh, time is a thief

it can crease the leaves like silver foil
and all that's left is dried out noise
and before you could turn around
it's the end of summer

and the stones are cold in my hands
and a stone's throw away is the wintertime
and the stones weigh more than they did
just a second ago

---

months have passed and days are gone
winter spring and summer waved goodbye
ooh, and so did you

nights I spent alone awake
days of trying to escape
ooh, the blues

and I'm feeling tired of it all
and I'm feeling tied to you still
and I'm feeling tired of it all
and I'm feeling tied to you still
Track Name: Afterlife
what is the afterlife like, ooh
what is the afterlife like, ooh
now that you're away
no more words to say

did you live how you expected to
did you live how you expected to
now that you're away
there are no more words to say

what am I supposed to do right now
with that echo that you left behind somehow
what am I supposed to do right now
with that echo that you left behind somehow

what is the afterlife like, ooh
what is the afterlife like, ooh
now that you're away
there are no more words to say
