"Where do ideas come from? That is a great question! Sit down and imagine a blue room... now right away, the room you're thinking of is different to the room i'm thinking of... even the blue is different. If it's not pleasing you start adjusting, and that means ideas are coming. [...] You catch an idea and you have your understanding. So my understanding may not be another person understanding when things get abstract! And, you saw, the more abstract a thing, the more different interpretations the varying understandings are, that the way it goes." [David Lynch]

Nous avons commencé l'écriture de cet album, quelque part vers la fin du mois de juin 2009. Alors que nous avions composé toutes les compos du 1er album en un peu moins de six mois, l'écriture de celui-ci aura pris plus de deux ans. Pourquoi? Nous ne le savons pas exactement. La société dans laquelle nous vivons vie sous le dictat de l'argent et de la vitesse. Rare sont ceux qui prennent encore vraiment le temps de vivre. Rare sont ceux qui prennent encore vraiment le temps de faire de la musique.

Il est assez difficile de décrire cet album avec des mots, nous n'aimons pas beaucoup faire cela et pour tout vous dire, nous sommes vraiment nuls quand il s'agit de le faire. Comme toujours, nous savions que ce qu'il en ressortirait serait le fruit de nos émotions partagées. Notre unique ligne directrice était de s'essayer à quelque chose de plus rythmé que le précédent. Tel fut notre postulat de départ. Ensuite, les mois se sont succédés, les saisons sont passées et “When things get abstract” est né.

Le titre n'est pas un hasard. Peut être qu'il est la réponse à la signification intrinsèque des chansons qui jalonnent cet album. Peut être qu'il est aussi la réponse au chemin parcouru depuis “Day after day”. Nous ne saurions le dire. Après tout, David Lynch dit bien: "plus une chose est abstraite, plus il existe d'interprétations possibles de sa compréhension".

Eepocampe Arras, France

Formed the 31st December 2005, Eepocampe explores a clearly, well-delimited musical universe, and brings us a sound that is not usually exploited. Largely influenced by the Post Rock and Alternative Rock, their compositions come out in a progressive way where harmonious melodies come with alternative rhythm sections. The exhilarating arrangements sometimes gives way to the vocal expression. ... more

Track Name: Lions & Elephants

All is about a tale,
Of those who fight tooth and nails
Crossing age into their cells
They won rights by walking on eggshells

[Now] Turning into elephants
Does everyone sit on the fence?
They're selling your sight for laziness
Like a child without awareness
Who said the die is cast?

In every circus, lies are turned into the truth
And it flies at the ear of the youth
Every single day, you're tamed to trust their hat-trick-things
But the fall comes without golden wings

But the fall is waiting in the wings

All is about, is about... elephants.
Track Name: Odyssey
I start a new day
Light sweeps soft the floor
As blossoms of mid may
It flew away right through the door

I suspect an ocean
Behind these unlived sceneries
But I see the sunrise
Drying its river across the sea

One by one it escapes
As an uncoloured sketch you can't see...

Days and nights
Fit in card castles doomed to collapse
It looks like an insight of your life
You will be lost somewhere in the dark
Track Name: Polaroid Fades

I fell in love with a goddess full of promises
But I wore bandages everytime she's turned upset
We both add some gas to the fire of our hearts... in the wrong way
Each time flashbulb burst to catch on our smiles...
the polaroid fades

We didn't let light enough time to fathom our hearts, my love
We went too far too fast and that was right on our souls (mate)
Polaroid fades...

It is wry cause I did know,
She was one of those who had left to come back to blow

On my mind with sorrow,
Even if her last call broke up all the windows

On the other side after all,
We shall become again some stupid letters on a phone

Cause we failed to catch on,
the beauty of this picture we never allowed to come
