ninajanssens I saw her and fell in love with her energy and generosity. Estère along with Kim, Jordan and Lola made me dance all night and will probably make me dance for a while. Favorite track: Grandmother.

Alexi It's bedtime by now but I still feel like dancing! I'm so excited. My favourite song is probably gonna be another one in a matter of days, I love them all, but right now I'm sure Estère outdid herself on »Jellyfish Stings.« Favorite track: Jellyfish Stings.

about

'My Design (P1)' is the first part of a *÷ 2* album being released by artist/producer - Estère. Recorded at her home studio in a sub~urban 40’s villa, 'My Design' paints a canvas of unique juxtaposition. Citing the meaty side of electronic music with succulent bass atop weighty drums and contrasting it with warm acoustic/percussive textures, Estère happily resides in her own curious genre described as ~ Electric Blue Witch-Hop.

Track Name: Vietnam
In the northern breeze they fell
Their bodies like a spell
Casting a veil, trail of auburn
I didn’t want to stir
This blanket on the earth
Quick steps as I found my way home
Track Name: Control Freak
I know how to be cruel
I can override you
Kick your red balloon
Open you like a wound
If you only knew
The calculations I do
Glossamer smooth
Sociopath in a cocoon
And it won’t be to soon
Till I dictate the truth
To you, to you, to you, to you, to you

I’m the control freak that lives in your dreams
Most beauteous creature you ever did see
All of your senses will listen to me
I command like a general and rule like a queen.
I’m the Control Freak, I’m the Control Freak-a! (x2)

I know how to be cruel
I can override you
Kick your red balloon
Open you like a wound
If you only knew
The calculations I do
Glossamer smooth
Sociopath in a cocoon
And it won’t be to soon
Till I dictate the truth
To you, to you, to you, to you, to you
I’m the Control Freak that feasts on your pride
Bottles your agenda and turns in to wine
Suffer your desire if from me you hide
I’ll find you, I’ll bind you and concur your mind!
I’m the Control Freak, I’m the Control Freak-a! (x2)

I know how to be cruel
I can override you
Kick your red balloon
Open you like a wound
If you only knew
The calculations I do
Glossamer smooth
Sociopath in a cocoon
And it won’t be to soon
Till I dictate the truth
To you, to you, to you, to you, to you
Track Name: Grandmother
Grandmother don’t leave before the light comes
Grandmother I have been waiting
Grandmother your body calm and tender
Grandmother couldn’t I just have you for a day

I will always know where to find you
Amongst the stars and under my feet yeah
And when you glow early morning
I hear my name

Grandmother the mama of my papa
Grandmother they say we’re two and one
Grandmother you kissed your living children
Grandmother and sprinkled soil in their palms

I will always know where to find you
Amongst the stars and under my feet yeah
And when you glow early morning
I hear my name

Bite through the wind as the funeral mourners sing
Ring through the sky as they dressed her all in white
Tear through the trees as her sons fell to their knees

Appelez de la terre l'esprit de ma grand-mère

Grandmother in ancient text I read you
Grandmother your pages I will bind
Grandmother you cast into the future
Grandmother but I will always look behind

I will always know where to find you
Amongst the stars and under my feet yeah
And when you glow early morning
I hear my name
Track Name: Pro Bono Techno Zone
Lyrics
Those busy muddy knees
Those huts up in the trees
Are all becoming distant relics
Of the past

Those coiled skipping ropes
Serpents without a hope
Are lying forlorn and abandoned
In the grass

Now I’m no stranger
To dangerous data
But this evidence
No lawyer could deny

Probono techno zone
Has all the kids at home
Zip locked behind their screens
Androids are in their dreams

I still remember when
Tablets were medicine
We’d dig the garden up
And bury them like bones

Now in this new age
It’s hard to concentrate
On faces without buttons
Or an LCD

Well I’m in favour
Of loving thy neighbour
But who can tell me that
Communities in style when..

Probono techno zone
Has all the kids at home
Zip locked behind their screens
Androids are in their dreams

Up the rivers rise
Down the shadows fall
What we thought was free
Isn’t free at all

Probono techno zone
Has all the kids at home
Zip locked behind their screens
Androids are in their dreams
Track Name: Jellyfish Stings
When I was three…
Down by the boat yard
They’d float in for the day
Lapping at the waters edge
Like children playing games
Speckled in the sunshine
Jewels for a king
Inviting my infant mind
To go and wade within

mmmmmmm

Cos jellyfish stings
Cover my skin
Still I don’t want to
Come out of the water NO
Jellyfish stings
Cover my skin
Still I don’t want to
Come out of the water NO

All of the times I was stung in my life
Still I don’t want to come out

When I was ten…
Her friendship would slip me
To tears of deepest blue
Still I’d cling to her contempt
Like it was made of glue
And I’d say Lavender, Lavender
Why you cut me mean?
She’d smile at me coyly
and gesture to the sea

mmmmmmm

Cos jellyfish stings
Cover my skin
Still I don’t want to
Come out of the water NO
Jellyfish stings
Cover my skin
Still I don’t want to
Come out of the water NO

All of the times I was stung in my life
Still I don’t want to come out

And at 22…
My baby would kiss me
Then tilt me to the sky
Clouds would gather up above
But I never asked him why
So low when he told me
His love was wearing thin
My tears fell in the ocean
As I went in for a swim

Cos jellyfish stings
Cover my skin
Still I don’t want to
Come out of the water NO
Jellyfish stings
Cover my skin
Still I don’t want to
Come out of the water NO

All of the times I was stung in my life
Still I don’t want to come out (x2)
Track Name: Ambition
Bow ties with enterprise
Were not her only aim
She had much more to claim
She was so tired of passing by
As a temporary queen
Yours for the evening

Magdelaine Lavirgin
Bordello resident
Wanted to be the United States president
Yeah aha yeah aha
Magdelaine Lavirgin
Bordello resident
Wanted to be the United States president
Yeah aha yeah aha

Whispers and signatures
Were part of her campaign
She kept a list of names
And red lipped for every kiss
The senate fell on their knees
Broadcasted on TV

Magdelaine Lavirgin
Bordello resident
Wanted to be the United States president
Yeah aha yeah aha
Magdelaine Lavirgin
Bordello resident
Wanted to be the United States president
Yeah aha yeah aha

A voice of the people
And advocate of equal
Rights for everyone
A candidate peculiar
To represent the future
Hijacked the election

And soon she was walking though
The marble corridors
Her heels clicked on the floors
No one had ever stunned
A nation quite like her
The country where dreams can occur

For Magdelaine Lavirgin
Bordello resident
Was to become the United States president
Yeah aha yeah aha
Magdelaine Lavirgin
Bordello resident
Was to become the United States president
Yeah it’s true do you believe it too
