I recorded and produced my debut album HANDS in my home studio during spring of 2020 and am looking at a release on the 30th of January, 2021. The second extraction of the album is Those Arms.

HANDS is a journey between a lost love and the search for a new one. Those moments of desperation, self-loathing and grief are told in plain words and resound in melancholic folk tunes - always searching and so often finding healing within. The 8 carefully composed songs were recorded in my room, often in the middle of the night, once the streets of Berlin provided the silence to do so. A very intimate sound diary to dive into, to allow vulnerability, to be touched and to laugh about it all in the end. Those Arms represents the very core of this impatient search, reflecting on the collateral human damage one perpetrates while on it.


The only truth I have for you
is I don't feel enough
It might even be nothing
but sorry
we're here
as those arms
couldn't possibly reach around my fears

Oh what have I done
to you again
An honest try
just another end
The tears I shed my lover
are still owned by another
they are owned by another

You say it's fine
yet I know
I've wronged us both this time
One lonesome pair
the two of us
together more than ever

Oh what have I done
to you again
An honest try
Just another end
The tears I shed my friend
are still owned by another
they are owned by another
