The Time 03:58
The time When do things start making sense, my love? Is it when nothing really starts making sense, at all? When everything is falling apart falling to the ground is that the time? Is that the time? Is this the time? How did we get here How did we get here, my love? Did we watch our feet so closely we forgot the road we’re walking on? Until everything is falling apart and I am falling to the ground This is the time This is the time This is the time This is the time

Skin and fur 04:16
Skin and fur They are swaying from side to side like flowers knowing they’re about to die pull them out with their roots let them walk with our footsteps out to the woods and the plains where the sun shines and it rains They say I got beauty and I got grace yet they think I belong in this cage but in silence I say it must all be a big mistake ‘cause I’ve got a home I’ve got a place where I’m more than an instinct I’m more than a race So let it rain on me There’s a beautiful world, out there There’s a beautiful world, out there They are swaying from side to side like flowers knowing they’re about to die pull them out with their roots let them walk with our footsteps out to the woods and the plains where the sun shines and it rains There’s a beautiful world, out there Do you really know more about living than I do? Isn’t it all you have? How big is that man-made cage of yours? Don’t you know new questions open new doors? ‘caus there’s a beautiful world, out there There’s a beautiful world out there So let it rain on us on our skin and on our fur So let it rain

Tick tick talk I look back, back in time to those pictures I couldn’t keep in my mind so I frame them with a click, a shot the sceneries you borrow to shape your feet and thought Click click click tick tick talk The best pics are the blurry ones with an old house in focus describing the mutual chaos of impressions that exist amongst all of us and how we go… Click click click tick tick talk all this time talk is getting in our way So I look back, back in time ‘cause I don’t want to erase to make more room in my mind So I frame everything with a storyline about my friends and I and how we go Click click click tick tick talk All this time talk is getting in our way is getting in our way it’s getting in our it’s defining our walk All this time talk (Tick tick talk) All this time talk (Tick tick talk) All this time talk (Tick tick talk) All this time talk Tick tick talk

Here, gone 04:49
Here, gone Gone, I’m here but gone turning into someone where I feel lost Here, I’m here but gone where are all these thoughts coming from? Where I am the distraction, I am the noise I want to be music am I only a voice? Outside there are embracing hands and inside there are walls Made up by things I don’t even want… Pam pam… So, I’m gone I’m here but gone turning into someone where I feel lost Here, I’m here but I’m gone Where are all these thoughts coming from? Where I am the distraction, I am the noise I want to be music am I only a voice? Outside there are embracing hands and inside there are walls Made up by things I don’t even want… So, put your hands on my back oh, won’t you once again let’s re-live this moment Oh, won’t we once again? So I can be here… Here and not gone… I am the distraction I am the noise I want to be music am I only a voice? (here, not gone) Pam pam…

about

Through cinematic indie-folk, Kieli's debut EP "Tick Tick Talk" raises personal and societal questions about time, purpose and identity. Tick Tick Talk is nostalgic and worried at times, but also playful and empowering with a vivid determination to stay present and create a better future for all beings.

"I decided to record the music myself, and that's when Tick Tick Talk really started to unfold. You would find me sitting on the floor in my family home at 4AM, scratching the old wooden floor gently, experiencing and enjoying every little detail of sound that somehow captures the essence of my childhood, uniting it with the feeling of growing up, and with who I was becoming in that specific moment.” -Kieli
