The upcoming Olicía album LIQUID LINES is a two version double album - two records, two versions of each track, two moods, two colours.

"Texture Of Words (Violet Version)" describes the discomfort and pain that sits under your skin when words remain unspoken for years. It's about how difficult communication can be at times. An ever-growing, heavy cloud forms between two people, everything inwardly fights against the silence. They are close and yet they often cannot find access to one another. Melancholy and gnawing pain - and yet in the foreground: floating lightness. Maybe to hide the deep sadness behind it all?

We rehearsed the song in Anna's basement for a long time before we recorded it for the album and now it is one of the first songs that we play live and we imagine being a synthesizer while singing the intro.



The texture of words, unspoken words
It hurts on and under my skin
A ceiled mouth, it can not give
but it can’t take either
And we starve of a loss of words

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
