about

Just in time for those last summer days, avant-pop group ooi will team up with renown French indie label Kitsuné to release their single Twins for the dreamy Full Moon in Pisces (Kitsuné release on 21.9.). Essentially about “moving-on”, this upbeat, playful tune revolves around the narrator’s processing of a relationship gone sour.
To quote lead singer Nicolai Zettl: “To me this song is about the moment of acceptance, the moment you realize that whatever happened cannot be changed and that, frankly, it’s OK, life goes on.” An array of lo-fi guitars and keys swerve and swoop around a crunchy and tight rhythm section, leaving the higher register vocals enough space to soar lightly on top. Zettl is eventually joined by his bandmates’ and their friends’, all singing in carefree unison, almost like a mantra of acceptance and letting-go: “So we lost something and it’s not coming back…”

lyrics

spring child with horns and a sting
why’d you lie about everything?
i toil in feather’s of blue winds
soaring through the past to find the reason
project my dreams upon the night sky as if it knew why cause
i dunno, i dunno how did we get so cold?
never trust the weatherman
never believe in anyone in front of a greenscreen
so we lost something and it’s not coming back
we took a wrong turn baby there’s no turning back
we lost something we lost something we lost

big smile upon little things
and cupid plucked out every string
why spoil this precious riddle ring of our harp
when baby all i wanted was to be your twin heart

so we lost something and it’s not coming back
we took a wrong turn baby there’s no turning back
