about

Written and recorded over 6 months in a Brooklyn apartment, Strange Bloom is an album that occupies a vibrant and unique space between pop, classical, and electronic music. Written, recorded, and mixed by Alice and Michi, the songs on Strange Bloom are playful and sensual, meditative and celebratory, warmly radiating their own unorthodox logic.

Track Name: Fighters
While you were close beside me
I saw that silver stream
your hands are soft but I have to try
to catch the glimmer and sting

we had it all together
you can hold me at the door
we never really said goodbye
so I can't tell if you're there

going away from the feel of you
we can give it one more try
but I don't know how to tell you
to keep digging while I fly

tell me not to do it
to take this whole thing down
tell me what I have to do
to keep you close to me

tell me what to do
don't tell me what to do
Track Name: Cairo
I have been here all this time
saving up my charms watching trees grow high
you can't see me all at once
I'm shiny like glass and cracking up sidewalks

who will ever know what I have known
who can ever know what I know?

I don't need no alibi
just because I had a different starting line
even when the streets are quiet
my voice is on my sleeve now my jacket's on fire

I have been here all this time
saving up my charms watching trees grow high
you can't see me all at once
I'm shiny like glass and cracking up sidewalks

don't you know oh don't you know it's carved in my bones
don't you know oh don't you know I call all these streets my home

who will ever know what I have known
who can ever know what I know?
Track Name: Jungly
Seems like you're fine you're fine
feels like you're always crashing the jungle
seems like you're all alone
but I'll always be watching under

you got it all worked out
your heart is almost hollow
I could wish so much for you

ah the sky is breaking up above you
ahh the sky is breaking off
ahhhh your blood is darker in the ocean
ahhhh you'll never hear me say

you waste my time

you could go on forever
you know the storm is only thunder
and don't cry those tears for us
honey I will always be watching under

you got it all worked out
your heart is almost hollow
I could do so much for you

ah the sky is breaking up above you
ahh the sky is breaking off
ahhhh your blood is darker in the ocean
ahhhh and you will hear me say

your part is over, it's almost over
you'd better rest a while
your part is over, your part is over
we're gonna rest a while
Track Name: You Could Be My Guy
Keep up keep up
you're cold to it so I started cutting
I know I know it doesn't help out at all

keep up keep up
you're close to death and I started counting
I know I know it doesn't help out at all

I'd do anything for love as long as it doesn't take much
I do not pretend to bend for us anymore

you could be my guy
you could be my guy

come on come on
start it up with anyone breathing
we're not bad, we just ran out of fire

come on come on
let's just keep everything moving
I know i know it's kind of exotica
you've already lost now we're tied

you could be my guy
you could be my guy
Track Name: This Is A Happy Song
This is a happy song
about how you came into my life
it has no ending
this is a happy song
even though I haven't figured it out
happy happy happy yeah

you got me falling in
I don't even know your favorite things
I should be asking
I have so much to say
but when you look into my eyes
I got nothing nothing yeah

I'm gonna jump today
even though I hear the warning
the drop is nothing
'cause when you talk to me
the noise disappears and I am
happy happy happy yeah

if I could show you the things
I have collected alone
while I was waiting
there'd be so much to say
but when you look into my eyes
I got nothing nothing yeah
Track Name: Dedication
For the rest of the night
let's travel as fast as we can 'till we know where we're going
hold hands pretend like we're closer to what we want
what else do you want me to ask for
what's the rush for?

for the rest of the night
let's travel as fast we can 'till it all turns white
hold hands and pretend like that we're closer to what we want
what else do you want me to ask for
what's the rush for?

let the first be first and let's let the last be good
we'll pretend we're better than we were before
let's drive and drive forever let's drive and drive forever
I hope it goes well

for the rest of the night
Track Name: For All Of The Strangers
Drink from the weather, I drink from the well
I live in the corners, the stadiums and songs
in all of the coral and all of the fields
I'll bury your sorrow away from here

all that you have loved will not go away

sleep through the fires, sleep through the spells
I keep all the stories of the people I know
a ll of the strangers I still love the same
all that we gather will not go away

all that you become I will not let go
