Full Time Fool
Palm Tree 05:19
- Lyrics - If you ask me to come And to wipe the slate clean I will be someone new I will bring you the moon And for sure I’ll be there For your smile, for your tears I will never let you Loose yourself in the gloom Oh I should be there for you But I waste my time I was obsessed with myself Then I lost my mind for gold and fame But I had you If we try to start again I will tell you the truth I will build you a house With a palm on the roof I will take off my blindfold Just to see someone new You can get on my back If we fly to the moon Oh I should be there for you But I waste my time I was obsessed with myself Then I lost my mind for gold and fame But I had you I would be your palm tree Your garden of love If we only take the time I wanna prove it to you You gave me the best years So can we go back I would like to hear you laughing And watch you dance my love My love for you is real It has always been I need you to be my girl Like you used to do Oh I should be there for you But I waste my time And for now and for ever You will be the one I was obsessed with myself Then I lost my mind for gold and fame No I won’t let you down again So let me kiss you in the rain ‘cause I love you
Navel Cord


Tracklisting - EP ‘’Holding The Universe Together’’
1. ‘’Full Time Fool’’ | 2. ‘’Palm Tree’’ | 3. ‘’Navel Cord’‘ | 4. ’’Contract’’ |
Created under the leadership of singer Adam Wood, BLESSINGS was established to highlight the bond between a group of close friends and musicians with an already impressive track record: Yann Clavaizolle (Elderberries, H-Burns), Jamie Pope (Elderberries, Sungraze), Benjamin Tessier (Kissinmas, Balzane), Morgane Imbeaud (Cocoon) and Mathéa Triniac (Orchestre National de Lyon).

The music behind BLESSINGS is consequently deeply influenced by the magic of atmospheric pop melodies, the bliss of folksy vocal harmonies, the pure energy that emerges from the many genres of rock, as well as the iconic arrangements from the classic albums of the 70s. A medley of universes and influences that allows the sextet to wander in a timeless space between the Laurel Canyon of the Byrds and the Australia of Kevin Parker and his pals.

This first EP, recorded at Mikrokosm studios in Lyon, opens with the exhilarating and refreshing nonchalance of « Full Time Fool », a dreamy, sunny and enchanting trip under the californian sky. This dreamlike feeling continues with « Palm Tree », which introduces the mellow tones of a tender melancholy that Matthew E White would not have been able to ignore. The band then takes a more direct approach and launches « Navel Cord » and its massive rhythmic beats on a journey through outer space at the speed of light. The outcome of this voyage leads to « Contract », where psychedelic wanderings are revealed amidst the energy of a futuristic rhythm and blues, where Jack White’s America is only a short distance away.
