about

Following the high expectations established, two years ago, with the release of their debut “Family Life”, Abbie Gale return with their second album which is symbolically entitled «2», while it’s the maiden release of Inner Ear Records.

Having conquered experience by now and with the support of a compact and integral production the four-piece group presents a fully creative project, always guided by Evira’s captivating voice. Her wide vocal range, her colourful vocals and her performance, ideally adjusted to the needs of each track, “light up” the mature compositions of “2”.

From the existential introversion of the opening track, “Life After Life”, to the diaphanous light of the ethereal “dialogue” between Evira and Raining Pleasure’s Vassilikos in “Lovesong” and from the heady lyricism of “Clown” and “Air” to the agony of the recited manifesto of “Danko”, Abbie Gale are not here to fill the gap or to restructure the domestic competition but to remind us that love for creation combined with inspiration – which in their case is ample – when originating from an harmonic collaboration with a clear aesthetic apprehension, remain always essential for the achievement of an exceptional result.

Track Name: Life After Life
Erase the time, erase the place
Get on the phone
Get to your knees
Tonight

The lonely moon
You’re going to
The grief is here to stay

Hold like a man
And cry as a woman
Oh, are you really gone?

You know I think
There must be Life after Life
Dear Son

And Death after Death
Like there’s Day after Day
And Night after night
Tonight
Track Name: Lovesong feat. Vassilikos
When all the world seems far away
And just the two of us are left
I’ll sing to you these words all through
The night we'll fly in peace and I’ll
And I’ll be air the air that makes me
Wanna dive into your skin
Into your skin into the stars
Into your breath and by your eyes

Into your skin, into the stars
Into your breath and by your eyes

Your pretty eyes I am divided
Into fire and glass tonight
And when I whisper when I dance
And when I fall into your arms
It's not a kid it's not a man
It's just myself electric shock
Is due to glances and to touches
Underneath what seems to be
What seems to hold what seems to touch
What seems to breathe in a moment
And all these moments all the thrill
And all the light that you have brought

Oh God please make this moment last

Into your skin, into the stars
Into your breath and by your eyes

And all this world, this magic world
That you have showed me is my light
Of silence, tenderness, of glances
That contain so many needs
So many wishes, passion, love, desire
And silence is the sweetest thing on earth
And we are birds that fly away
And in our hugs I cannot say
Your hand from my hand or your breath
From my breath let me be unsure
And ever I’m confused a sweet kiss
And a hug will make us birds
Will give the world away
It's just ourselves that's left I’ll be desire
You'll be the passion we'll be two stars
In a spring more open sky

Into your skin, into the stars
Into your breath and by your eyes
Track Name: Heliotrope Portrait
Bring what you have as to survive
Bring what you need bring what you are
Bring and your silence
Bring and your tears
Bring and your memories
Bring and your dreams

Don't bring anything at all
Come and bring just you

What you are and where we are
I'm so bored and so confused
So come on, darling, please

Don't bring anything at all
Come and bring just you
Track Name: Clown
Could this please be the last time
Could this time be just for me
Make my hair put my make-up on
Make me ready for my show

See the star see the star now
Clap your hands clap your hands now
Please don't cry, I’ll make you laugh again

On the rope up high here
All these years such silence
Where’s my home where are my sons
All my life a funny wig

See the star see the star now
Hail the clown hail the clown now
Try and cry, I can't make you laugh this time...
Track Name: Wanted
Wanted by the sun
And wanted by the moon
There's plenty of warmth on sun
It's more than you can stand
More than you can stand

And moon is hardly known
As most of us I think
They say it's cold and lacking air
But we can't see it all
We can't see it all

Sing with me and dance with me
'Cause I’m not quite sure
The moon seems far and on the sun
I cannot put my dreams

Wanted by the light and wanted by the dark
Light gives life and gives support
But dark gives dreams, yeah, dark gives love
And both of them give questions

Sing with me and dance with me
'Cause I’m not quite sure
The moon seems far and on the sun
I cannot put my dreams
'Cause my dreams are made of light and dark
And I wish the four of them
To be there, charming, cause I’ll maybe
Sometimes want to take small trips
Track Name: Gone
It’s been a while
Since I’ve seen you laugh
It’s always just a smile
Instead of tears

I know a place
Where your shadow lives
Lonely, aching in an endless dark

Gone with the wind
Away in a cloud
Gone is my heart
When it feels your grief

The endless books
That describe the end
Or what it was before
And what will be

Well I know a place
Where all shadows live
A place where you and I will someday meet

The ones that exist
Will not cease to exist
And light will prevail
Just believe no one’s gone
Track Name: Contact Improvisation
My precious secret
Witches and fairies keep it safe
They take it to a coast
Magical in the moon
Away from earth

Love got dressed like dance
And blew life to my body
And all my steps

I'll get down on my knees
And ask for your fingers
To lay my face

So take me home take me into your arms
Let me see your world
It's in the back of my head
In a picture that's fading
I'll sleep among
The seas and all the stars
Show them how you smile
I'll put my head on your head
And I'll be dancing around you

I only wanna smile
Like I have never ever cried
I only wanna dance
Like I have never ever walked

So take me home take me into your arms
Let me see your world
It's in the back of my head
In a picture that's fading
I'll sleep among
The seas and all the stars
Show them how you dance
I'll put my head on your head
And I'll be dancing around you
Track Name: Over the Wall
Raise your eyes very slowly dear
The sunlight may make you blind
Seal the hunted story of our lives
Make it a book and set on fire

But darling, don’t ever ask me what is worth
We made so huge and strong the wall
And called us heroes of the world
So darling, let’s put them all against the wall
I know the place where flowers grow
Where all the trains are starting from
Can you see, the little ship that wants to moor
Don’t fall asleep before I lull
Don’t fall asleep before I do

I will make my life a song and I’ll
Amuse ourselves until we die
This will be the place that every time
Will seem like all the silent nights
Track Name: Sometimes
Sometimes hearts can be broken
Silly words spoken
Thrown in the air
Sometimes you’re feeling so empty
But something you can’t see
Brings you back to life

Trying to make you feel secure
Releasing my heart’s thoughts
All into you
I’m trying hard to make you see
You’re all I can feel
You’re all that is real

Sometimes there’s no sunshine
There’s no real fight
But I can see
Sonetimes in faraway countries
I’m still dreaming
Please forgive

If you wanna see me fall
Ask and I’ll try
But I’ll never be down
'Caus’ if you only wake me up
But there’s no use
I’m a dreamer
Track Name: Air
The days are heavy the hours a lot to bear
In Europe there’s fresh air
Or is it long past gone
For the air is something everybody needs
But no one ever cared
Dor me the way you did

Give me the air, give me the wings
To fly away

The war has started two thousand years ago
And Jesus still gets nailed
To the cross that everyone builds

This cross is the field of your sickness
His boredom
Her fears
And my sins
And our last chance
To not fear
Do not fear...
Track Name: Goodnight
I want so much to cry
And then turn around and hide
Under my tears, away from you
Please try and feel some pride
Show me that you don’t know how
To show me you know
To tell me you love me

Now I’m old enough to know
That this will never be but I don’t care

I want you to know, I’ve always looked
For your secret, tender smile. Let’s say goodnight

The only way that you can show
How you care and how you love
Is to hurt me and hide yourself
Now I’m old enough to know
Years have passed and years will go
But you will never
Open your eyes
Track Name: Danko
Unset time. Unset place.
Not necessarily a spot in history.
The darkest time of humanity.
The darkest season of earth.
Nothing grows. Nothing evolves.
Darkness covers almost all land.
Unknown if there are any plants or animals
Cause they cannot be seen.
And right in the middle of dark
a small place where humans live
or something that reminds of living.
They live in fear, dream of fear they give birth to fear.
No hope in their aching hearts.
No smile on their broken faces.
And this goes on and on for years and years and years…
And as they fear more and they lose hope
the dark comes closer and closer.
They never touch it, never enter it.
Until they day that Danko is born.
His parents do not differ from other members
of the tribe, oh but Danko does.
He Hopes. And Fears. But still Hopes.
And he grows up.And the little boy becomes a man.
And he gets sick of fear.
He gets bored of not exploring.
Not the dark but his heart. His Burning Heart.
And day after day frightened people
listen to a man called Danko forcing them to move.
Everyone thinks it’s madness.
But Danko is very serious.
He never seems to fear, never seems to regret.
And some day more and more live off his hope.
And begin to move.
They take sticks on fire and they have Danko ahead.
Everyone is moving now. Moving into the dark.
Danko is always ahead, shouting to go on.
And now the dark gets deeper.
It’s aching to move now. Feet heavy.
Hearts beating fast. But not Danko’s.
Sometimes he turns back to them and they see his face,
listen to his words.
Probably they fear Danko more than they fear dark.
And they go on and on.
Light spreads in the heart of black fog.
But dark now plays its dirtiest tricks
and hearts begin to freeze.
And more and more are screaming to go back.
Things get out of control.
No order in the moving tribe now.
They start to blame him.
But Danko will not step back, even now…
He rips off his own heart from his wonderful chest.
Bleeding he holds it up and everyone sees
the most hopeful light they had ever seen.
Danko’s Burning Heart gives them hope.
And they go on really fast. No one screams now.
Danko is bleeding. The world starts to fade away.
He looks to his heart and still feels close to it.
His pace is steady. His heart is burning, leading the way.
And after a while Dark begins to scatter and dawn comes
A bright reddish Dawn, the first one in centuries.
Everyone is cheering now. Everyone hopes.
And they are so happy they cannot see
A young man’s dead body lying among them
Beside a Heart that’s still burning its last sparkles….
