Bel Esprit 04:48
I thought this was a place just for you and me but this girl is hunting header letters in the sea her sister tries and cries but she can’t see that our beach was packed with the Bel Esprit! Joseph son I’m seeing that your eyes are dry well I wonder if you ‘re gonna even try to leave your flappy Bel Esprit behind well the spurplebird you’re holding’s gonna tell you no lie! it’s gonna be alright! I feel that we have spent here more nights than days and I’m not sure if this broken tent will calm the blaze my Bel Esprit will fly us over the heath but Mary my love let’s try and wash our teeth! The boat came-a-rollin’ on a trail of vapor when we had finished all our kitchen paper buckets of angry bathers came and agreed that those forty-eight hours oozed of Bel Esprit!

Sweet Geneva 02:48
sweet Geneva, I will leave a faint path of crumbs that’s gonna lead me back to you! sweet Geneva, don’t be diva open your arms and just caress us we’ll get through! sweet Geneva, I will built a bold lofty rhyme that jumps and saves me from the fire! sweet Geneva, please forgive her we’re like a brothel just before it’s closing time! all we need, much indeed found them lying on the river bed now eat instead: Huts and fans a slice of ease that tells a manmade tale while I walk on a pliant willow twig Lots of knots the seven seas among us move the scale living a life that it ain’t worth a fig what we’re gonna do?

Duty free tropical birds sing for a Panda Club their nests are built by crooked nerds guarded by a panther cub. They didn’t know this was a thing so we let them eat our grub! ‘cause birds alone can’t bring the spring they need a Panda Club an Infrared Panda Club We got too goddamn hungry so we hide behind a shrub, the last thing that you need when angry is a hungry Panda Club. Seeked food in astronomic gardens, the Infrared Panda Club but when the cosmic trade wind hardens we drool inside a tub. the Infrared Panda Club What I really need in the morning when I wake up is the Infrared Panda Club In the evening when I rest and I’m trying to digest I miss the Infrared Panda Club When the night is alright our connection gets as tight as an Infrared Panda Club If I mess up with the others well the only one that bothers is the Infrared Panda Club we furled into the smallest club into this world!

Candle Fly 02:43
Candle fly, I’m telling you I’m losing my mind! How can love be everywhere, yet so hard to find? Thinking big but in the end acting so small! How someone born with wings yet prefers to crawl? an end’s got a start, even by mistake I asked for your heart but you gave me a heart ache Candle fly, I’m telling you don’t lock the door! I know I have never been what you’ re looking for Spread your sapphire wings and fade trying to be free see my feet are growing roots just like a tree an end’s got a start, even by mistake I asked for your heart but you gave me a heart ache

come home my evening primrose don’t go wherever wind blows come home my evening primrose keep on we’re getting so close found a way to move the sun sunlight’s good for everyone found a way to ease the pain by eating clouds and drinking rain so come home my dearest thorn can’t you see our ivies are torn? Primrose start making sense ‘cause my head is falling fast! midnight dew is veiling the moon and you’re about to enter in the blizzard’s trail I’m sitting here wondering why I keep getting all your news by mail If you’ll get a love of your own or stay famous for being alone, primrose start making sense cause my head is falling fast!
6.
Floors are falling on my head, while you are sleeping in your bed. I see your mind is worried, what can I do? Take a breath and hear the chimes, Athens comforts us sometimes! find your friends smoke two more for now will do! She’ll be apples, let her be apples saturated galaxies in your eyes She’ll be apples, let her be apples Oh blessed sight, what a light! And if the sun don’t shine your way, go and chase it right away! we can climb together the highest ridge. Love your heart does weight a ton, let what’s gone to be bygone! hear them flow like water under the bridge! She’ll be apples, let her be apples saturated galaxies in your eyes She’ll be apples, let her be apples Oh blessed sight, what a light!

The sea you tried to keep deep in your pocket moists your legs and fish are running free recall to leave the light fixed in the socket so your cats won’t loose all their vitamin D You then fly fed up wrapped in your coat what you had was so beyond the bounds like a songbird trapped in a lover’s throat is that how my voice really sounds? Chasm loss danger abyss What you think you are going to miss? You are holding the moon underwater and that is like a full time matter but what is shivering down your spine is the monstrous, monstrous voice of mine Chasm loss danger abyss What you think you are going to miss? Aleatory processing Always too hard to assess the cost Then we are counting stars or we are skidding cars another day is ours although you sometimes choose to compromise A schitzophonic chance ironic in advance an apprehensive glance that weeps the sadness of your weary eyes So if the sadness flies no need to apologize get up and grab your prize you are in today for oh the least surprise Your friends waiting hesitating house’s drowned in toxic waste starving with iconic taste speed and tendency for independency While i stay here like a child like a child a humiliated child You are holding the moon underwater and that is like a full time matter but what is shivering down your spine is the monstrous, monstrous voice of mine

I had a fail today such a fail lovely fail my daily operations failed I shall reboot and prevail I inhale facts but nothing gets exhaled I was left alone and strayed so mislaid I’m afraid my dullness soon would be portrayed I was not from what the stars are made I inhale facts there’s nothing left to say consequences do imply you must comply don’t deny that I should push away the sky to escape from all the hue and cry we all know to make a living I must DIE

Hombres mueron se extinguieron pero algunos CHICKN siguieron. Pájaros incapaces incapaces de volar. Vivir es un tipo, un tipo de fracasar.

about

CHICKN are happy to announce the release of new album "Bel Esprit" on October 18th via Inner Ear Records.

This is a nine track album which contains an equal amount of gender-bender acid pop nuggets that will generously provide you with all the touchy-feeliness you’ll ever need. It will be hidden inside intimate voices telling distant stories, cosmic whistles or even in the form of cadenced grooves from outer space.

“Bel Esprpit” is CHICKN’s first & last racing horse, a radiant contemplation on absence and progress.

“Bel Esprit” was recorded between March and June of 2019 in Athens, Greece engineered by Nikos Triantafyllou and Iraklis Vlahakis, produced by Angelos Krallis & CHICKN.

“Bel Esprit” is the one thing you only feel it when it’s gone, but now you have the amazing chance to experience it in real time.

Please listen to this loud in Stereo
