about

"A hauntingly luminous piece of work. A memory palace in constant devastation, under a sky full of cotton clouds."

Grief est un EP de cinq chansons, tout aussi distinctes les unes que les autres; un petit bijou fignolé de manière totalement indépendante et avec beaucoup de soin. Les palettes vaporeuses et l'atmosphère de hantise planant sur celui-çi traduisent l'acharnement du jeune artiste à exorciser la grande crise, celle du début de la vingtaine, celle qui s'imbibe à tout jamais. D'une humilité draconienne et d'un désir d'épouser le bon-sens, il tente de se réfugier dans ce nuage de coton, ce palais de souvenirs qui est à la fois en constante dévastation et en perpétuel épanouissement.

ENGLISH:

Ego Death is the solo project of Quebec City-based singer-songwriter Joey Proteau. As an introspective artistic endeavor derived for the most part from Proteau’s own life experience, the soft and smooth tones of his music give way to a sense of intimacy that calls to mind profoundly felt inspirations. As much as the project’s palette of classical and organic influences tends toward minimalism, the spirit of songwriting is undeniably kept well-alive and on the foreground.


FRANCOPHILES:

Ego Death, le plus récent projet du musicien Joey Proteau, se veut la résultante d'un long travail d’introspection et de composition. S'en dégage une série de pièces à la fois minimalistes et expansives qui a pour point commun principal l'élégance des arrangements et l'intimité des textes. Un refuge contradictoire de chansons Heavy qui donnent l'impression de flotter dans l'ether, un sentiment de familiarité qu'on n'arrive à décrire précisément; à la fois un point de départ et le fil d'arrivée.

Track Name: Andreane
This is what I claimed
And what you replied
I've never felt ashamed
you just made me shy

Once and for all
drop my hand
Just let me fall
And don't pretend

We can't live in here
None of this will last
Words are not so clear anymore
And seems to go so fast

Once and for all
Drop my hand
Just let me fall
And don't pretend

Andreane
Track Name: Troubles
Troubles, only troubles for you

Troubles, all the troubles for me too

Troubles are digging tunnels in my head

So deep, just to keep me stressed

It must lead somewhere

Someone's still out there

Don't you think I see

What it means to be

No troubles, no more troubles

Travelling with nothing else but some hate

And it feels like I'm always too late

I'm travelling with nothing else but some kind of hate

And it feels like such a risk to take

I know where I am

I don't lose perspective

I was so afraid

Almost like a shade

No troubles, no more troubles
Track Name: Lucid Dreams
In the dreams that I dream
I am healthy and clean
I don't care what the people say
The body works in mysterious ways

In the dreams that I dream
No one really mean what they means
Some are good and some are bad
I'm truly sure most of them are sad

Oh, anyways

Distraction in my head
Destruction in my head
Daddy's hospital bed
daddy's no longer dead

Yes I had too much this time

In the life that I lived
There are things that I missed
Ideas never to be embraced
Or Jesus when they described his face
In the life that I lived
I've been bored, oh so bored I swear
But lucid dreams have taken good care
to always bring me back to somewhere
Always

Conclusions in my head
Confusions in my head
Daddy's hospital bed
Daddy's no longer dead

Yes I had too much this time
Track Name: Third Eye
He was out of luck and out of charms
Brought in daylight, in daylight
He wore nothing more but funeral clothes
Bought in the moonlight, the moonlight

Nothing was left of all his old fears
Nothing was left, it all disappeared

He was full of joy, so full of pride
To blink his third eye, his third eye
It was giant love, up from above
Through his third eye, his third eye

Nothing was left of all his old fears
Nothing was left, it all disappeared
Nothing was left, it became so clear
Nothing was left, it all disappeared
It all disappeared
Track Name: I Hate Everyone
I hate everyone
It makes me feel like someone
The reasons a man gets scared
are reasons we should not care

Oh god, be good

Bringing back the powers at first light
Bringing back the powers through the night
Be gone, I'll be gone

I needed everyone
To make me feel like someone
Unstable love I shared
Man, was I just even there?

Oh god, be good

Bringing back the powers at first light
Bringing back the powers through the night
Take me there, take me through the lies
Untie all, untie all the ties

Be gone
I'll be gone
