about

The first LP by the Russian instrumental rock band The Heckfish, following their debut EP "Immersion" released in 2013.
The album features seven purely instrumental tracks retaining the band's distinctive style with mostly improvised recorder lead but offering a heavier, more prog-rock influenced sound than its predecessor, as well as two songs with lyrics in them. One, "Nightsong" is sung in Russian, the other, "Why Are You Here" in English.

We sincerely hope you people enjoy the music we've created!

Track Name: Nightsong
Утро было вчера.
Ночь сожгла керосин.
Странно видеть тебя в этом сне…
Тенью от комара,
Волком среди витрин
Я убегаю навстречу весне.

Чёрточкой по воде,
Каплей среди страниц,
Тонкою сенью сна бродит марь.
Дымно. Неясно, где
Слышится шорох лиц.
Я зажигаю последний фонарь.

Может быть, за окном
Красит рассвет гора.
Запах зелёных снов прочь летит.
Я оставляю дом.
Утро было вчера.
Ночь где-то что-то опять коптит…
Track Name: Why Are You Here
Colors fade,
Dripping skies,
Silhouettes
Lost in the rye –
Still, why are you here?
Say, why are you here?

Empty shores
Beckon me.
Stars are gone,
Choked by the sea –
Still, why are you here?
Say, why are you here?

Colors fade,
Dripping skies,
Silhouettes
Lost in the rye –
Now, why are you here?
Say, why are you here?
