about

"Anodine is a band which can really offer something new with their kaleidoscopic, genre-defying approach [...] One of the best , most forward-thinking and ambitious debuts of 2013 without a doubt!" - Andrea Caccese (Paper Wings Music)

"This must be one of the most eclectic and ethereal indie rock albums in recent years [...] great songwriting, great lyrics, and terrific instrumentation. It’s the most intelligent and well crafted trip rock [...], I’ve heard in the indie arena, in a while!" - Rick Jamm (Jamsphere.com)

"Overall the album boast's high quality production, excellent musical composition and is very hypnotic. [...] It is easy to get lost in the soundscape of the album even at moments when it seems to get too dark, the production pulls you right back out and into the astral plane of music that "Passages" represents. Rating: 9/10" - Adi Ladson (Digiindie.com)

"THIS IS THE SCENERY OF NIGHTMARES, THE ARTISTS SEEM INFATUATED WITH THE DARK SIDE. [...] LABEL THIS ONE, FOR NIHILISTS AND DARKSIDE FANS ONLY." - Angela Tafari, freelancer

Track Name: Antilight
(instrumental)
Track Name: Color Of This Place
COLOR OF THIS PLACE

Something broken inside me
Something without I'm incomplete
Something to save me from myself
Something that keeps the pain away

Who am I? - my flesh, my blood, my spirit
Who am I? - my flesh, my blood, my spirit

The color of this place
Feels so strange
The shades in my eyes
Are giving me away
The closer that I get
The more I leave behind
When we lose our souls

To see it cannot be undone
When the memory's still so clear
To know myself been growing cold
A little deader than before
Track Name: Dark Side Of Venus
DARK SIDE OF VENUS

Beware of the hunters
Beware of the hounds
Listen to the crazy fools
Who know the way
Something deep inside
Black spot that I hide
Always screams for more
And more, and more

That's why we crashed on the
Dark side of Venus

No rat escapes the maze
No winner in this race
This ship is bound to sink
Into the ice cold depth
The conflict is intended
The casualties endorsed
Attrition by design
We're wasted away
Track Name: Into The White Light
INTO THE WHITE LIGHT

We don't believe in dreams
We don't believe in miracles
We don't believe in epiphanies
We don't believe in God

We do believe in credits
We do believe in property
We do believe in ethics
But only if it suits us well

We seem to be so helpless
At the mercy of the predators
Our bodies break so easily
Our minds are full of fear

Into the white light
There's so much fucking darkness
Into the white light
Where does it all come from
Track Name: Break Away
BREAK AWAY

Show me the things I don't want to see
Please, I beg you, peel my skin away
Expose the void that lies beneath
And the drama that appears to surround me

I awake to find I'm dead and it's OK, I'm content
The world is mine, just for a while, before I forget again

I don't need you, I don't want you, I can't take anymore
There is nothing to hold on to
I don't need you, I don't want you, don't wanna do it over again
When all I seek is to break away

Every day I recompose myself
Gathering up the pieces
Pretend to be somebody, but I'm anyone, no one
A face I can't recall

The less I am, the more do I become
Break away...
Track Name: The Virus
THE VIRUS

I'm torn, but not broken
Somehow I'm still functioning
For the sake of the fuck I know

I'm worn, but not discarded
Hiding in a timeless crack
I'm born from the nothingness
And nothing I will be
Somewhere in a timeless crack
Between intersecting planes
I've fallen into crisis
I'm calling for the rain

I can't go on
But I must go on
No, I won't go on
But I must go on
Don't want to go on
But I must go on
Go on
Track Name: Hidden Places
HIDDEN PLACES

I awake in my dreams
Among the others who show me things
Secret ways, forgotten rooms
Filled with memories, covered by dust

Endless maze of living spaces
Car-free city of golden light
The fall of stars, the burning ruins
The cliff side beach, the deep blue sea

I know those hidden places
I've seen the darkest spots
I bathed in crystal waters
Beneath vanilla skies

A demon's kiss, an angel's rape
Teeth in my flesh, fear in their eyes
The flying serpent carries me high
Watchers and hunters, I met them all

I walk between the places
Here is just another there
In the mirror of awareness
I gave away myself
Track Name: No Summer
NO SUMMER

Locked you out and lost the key
Hear you knocking, no answer
Dimness fills the corridors
A quiet hum of failed devices

Stalking through the fog of others' dreams
In the strangelight, intoxicated
Lying wrapped and warped between broken things
The cold comes crawling in

You can never feel the summer in your heart
You could never bring the summer to my heart

Locked inside without a key
Someone's knocking, I don't answer
Darkness fills the narrow suite
The groaning noise of cars drive by

I've been crossing to the other side
Into the strangeland, permeated
I have never ever known you anyway
Just now I realized
Track Name: Storm
STORM

Hiding from the light
Hiding from your sight
Hiding in the darkness
That surrounds us

Coming from within
Coming from above
Projecting
Coming from within
Coming from above
Reflecting

I feel the storm is coming
We have summoned secretly
I feel the storm is coming
To wipe us away

Rising in your ears
Crawling along the sky
Charging in the air
Smell of expectation
Track Name: Dark Field
DARK FIELD

Hiding below the screen
Traceless, faceless, shapeless, defunct
Behind layers of diversion
Blending in seamlessly, inconspicuously

You will only know me by the dark field
The outline of the blind spot, zero entropy
I am lurking, attacking from the shadow zone
Nobody, anybody, and we are legion
I'm the one who is watching the watchers
The subversive factor in your vision of control
I'm the one looking over your shoulder
Dragging your dirty secrets into the light

You can't detain me, 'cause I have no body
I don't negotiate, 'cause I have no head
You brought the terror, you brought the war
I will expose you, incriminate, evoke the rage

You will only know me by the dark field
The outline of the blind spot, zero entropy
Beyond the frayed ends of the spider's web
I tear the strings and make it come apart
Track Name: Somewhere Sometime Somehow
SOMEWHERE SOMETIME SOMEHOW

I still hear the melody
I used to hear when you were near
I can't get it out my head
Though I try to play it dead

Time won't kill the memory
Distance is not far enough
I imagine how it would be
To start again

Somewhere sometime somehow

Live's to short to hesitate
And make the same mistakes again
I know you don't believe it was
Just an end
Track Name: City
CITY

Got your veins clogged with steel
And a lung full of black tar
Your heart stutters to the light
You scream like prey
Growl like a thousand predators
And reek of gasoline

Feed us, bleed us
Sustain us, wear us down
Move us, speed us
Dry us up to the bone

And they all keep shitting in the feeding trough
They all keep coughing in the next face
They're so much prettier than you
They think they're so much prettier than you

Hell is not a place
It's a mentality
We do it to each each other
We do it to ourselves
You are death in installments
With every breath I take
Breaking me, making me sick
Track Name: This Moment
THIS MOMENT

On the back seat of a black limousine
A contract has been made
Leaving the envisioned path behind
Driving the uncertain way

Blinded by the iridescent blaze
So much to see, so little to conceive
With childlike curiosity
Picking at a peacock's tail

Next morning we'll be famous
Our name on every page
We're living for this moment
Tomorrow we'll be dead

Dawn breaks in a ruby spray
The sobering songs of mating birds
Those days are just a waste of light
Deceitful and ostensible

We're thriving into madness
So we can discern the insanity
Behind the wall of darkness
Lies the kingdom of the eye
Track Name: Room 23
ROOM 23

It seems tough sometimes
As I catch myself staring
Into the abyss for too long
Soaked with bitter thoughts
I take a remedy sometimes
When I've become deaf to the light
Shining so brightly
Just before it dies

Take all of my sadness
Take all of my grief
I owe them to you
Reach out and receive

I'm hanging in suspense
And I cannot help myself
Feels like tearing and contortion
I need my remedy tonight

Have all of my blitheness
And share with the dead
Who never were alive
And still remain asleep
Track Name: Resistance
RESISTANCE

Our nature is to hurt
And pass down the harm
We bleed because we must
And hunt because we can
The scare of the day
The flags held high
We are betrayed
And we betray

Please resist
We're in a state of deceit
It's slipping away
We have on screens
So we won't realize
There's nothing to see

Love discriminating
The sex of the flesh
Possessed to be consumed
Bondage of the mind
Things made to break
Boasted and disdained
Worship of the icon
Suffer in style
Track Name: She Calls
SHE CALLS

In the youth of darkness, she calls
From a mouthful of dreams, she calls
Cradled and nurtured in her arms
To die once again by her kiss

You're the one to heal me
You're the one who destroys
Mother of love
I'm a son of delusion

When the walls start to bleed, she calls
And my skin crawls with chill, she calls
To behold what she sees through her eyes
Peels the flesh from my soul with her claws

There is nothing to hide
There is nothing to fight
There is nothing but truth
There is nothing but love
This is where you belong
This is where you came from
This is where you'll return
This is where you are whole
Not alone
