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.

Vietnam 01:11
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

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

Grandmother 03:34
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

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

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)

Ambition 03:14
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

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.
