“Not so Very Nice” out now!

It has been a while but it’s finally here. New album is out! “Not so Very Nice” is mostly an accumulation of meaner songs that I wrote in different perriots of my life. I wanted this album to represent the blue collar and hard working people, punch in – punch out kind of struggle. 👇

“Sad Sometimes”

Third and last single “Sad Sometimes” is out and about! Full album coming out on September 30th!

https://fanlink.to/SadSometimes

About the song:

“Sad Sometimes” starts off with a negative tone of dark thoughts and the pointlessness of everything, but quickly resolves with a slower, more positive ending. The second part of the song gradually emerges into a more comforting feeling that even though there are times when nothing makes sense, there are still many important little things that lift my spirit and happiness that I want to concentrate on more often.

Lyrics:

Sometimes I wanna kill myself
But someday I’m gonna die anyway
So why wouldn’t I just stay for a while

What the point of this
When nothing gonna be mine
What they screaming for 
For me it’s only big lie
And then you showed me love
For us to just simply die

I’m just waiting on 
Line

So I think to get comfort
Of the little things passing by
They can often bite your own soul
But at the end you’ll be fine

So I think to get comfort
Of the little things passing by
They can often bite your own soul
But at the end you’ll be fine

“Simple Boys”

Second single “Simple Boys” is out and about on all the major platforms: https://fanlink.to/SimpleBoys

About the song:

This one is kind of funny take on immaturity of some man – not in a derogatory way. At the end of the day, all we ever need is love, even “Simple Boys”.

>>>>PRESS RELEASE<<<

Lyrics:

Me and my buddies

Easy and baked

Going to party

Hope she’ll understand

When fight will brake

We will be first

We don’t know karate

But we know self defense

Decision was made

Now It’s to late

We gonna stay home

And master the bait

Don’t be mad

Don’t close the doors

We are just simple boys that need love

Don’t be mad

Don’t close the doors

We are just simple boys that need love

“My Sweetest Tone”

New single “My Sweetest Tone” out now! 👉https://fanlink.to/MST

About the song:

As an uneducated immigrant who came to this country with no money or knowledge of English in my teenage years, the US quickly showed me where my place is. The verses represent this sort of way of being mistreated and the chorus describes that no matter what life throws at me, I’ll always stand my ground and “carry on with my sweetest tone”.

“Dear Peri”

 

‘Dear Peri’ was inspired by a tragic incident that happened last January, where two climbers tried to reach the summit of Nanga Parbat known as “Killer Mountain”. One of the climbers was a French woman named Elisabeth Revolwent and the other was a Polish man name Tomasz Mackiewicz. Mackiewicz had loved that mountain and became passionate about climbing after beating a heroin addiction. In an interview, he described a legend told by locals about the ghost of a woman named Peri who protects the mountain and could help or harm you. After reaching the summit of ‘Killer Mountain’, Revolwent had to leave Mackiewicz in a safe place because of his bad condition and loss of his vision. She gave Tomasz some blankets to keep him warm and said that the rescue team would come back for him. Unfortunately the snowstorm was too strong and they weren’t able to reach him.

Tom Gluewicki of Tender Glue had found out about the story couple weeks after it happened and made him think about how it must be dying alone this way. The song is his interpretation of Mackiewicz’s letter to his beloved mountain and Peri as he slowly departed from his body. People called Mackiewicz a fool for risking his life, which is where the lyrics “Don’t call me fool” came from. His body hasn’t been found till this day, but it was assumed that he died shortly after, due to extreme weather conditions.

Lyrics:

Don’t want to wake up darling
From your fateful dream
But your cold blooded kisses
Slowly drowning me

You wear what you want
You do as you please
Don’t call me fool
Don’t call me fool
Just me and you

Bright pale face
Your beauty will always be
With a white coat
Laying over me

You wear what you want
You do as you please
Don’t call me fool
Don’t call me fool
Don’t call me fool
Don’t call me fool
Just me and you
Just me and you

You wear what you want
You do as you please

“About two years ago, I moved from Brooklyn to Manhattan, after getting an opportunity to live in affordable housing. When I saw the studio apartment that I got, there was this closet that I immediately envisioned making a little recording studio, which was actually a bad idea, but I was too stubborn to change it since I already decided the album name was going to be called “Closet Leftovers”. Before I even started recording, I already made an album cover which is a picture of a little chair that I screwed into my wall and put my red hat in a doggie bag on top of the chair. I also put white duct tape with the name of the album and Tender Glue, which ended up invisible since I manipulated the picture with exposure afterwards. But if you look closely, you can still see it. It took almost the whole day to take that picture. So now about the recording and why it was a bad idea: Not only can you hear the high pitch static noise and interference in the monitors, you could also hear everything going on including the dishwasher or cell phones. I had to sit on the floor with the mic close to the ground to record vocals because it was the only place that the mic wouldn’t pick up those noises, which I later realized was caused by the electric panel and all the wires that were next to the closet. I tried different options to eliminate the noise but nothing worked.
Sometimes it could get claustrophobic and the lack of air didn’t help either, but my vision for the album kept me going.” – Tom Gluewicki

“Lights Out” Official Music Video

New Album “Closet Leftovers” Coming out September 28th!

“Lights Out” and three other singles from upcoming LP are now available to listen and download on all major stores!!–>http://smarturl.it/LightsOut-Single

“I had this idea of me standing in the hallway of my apartment and doing slow motion video combined with one of those instagram face filters. I sped up the song and sang along with the sped up version, so I can slow it down later on. As for the Instagram star filter, I recorded the sped up version of it on a monitor screen. After that, I combined the two videos and connected the instagram clips since you are only allowed to film 15 second. At the end, the blood symbolizes the shots that were shooting at me every time the crash cymbal was hit.”

You can find more about the song here: PRESS RELEASE

Lyrics:

Remember how
We used to jump the shades
Such a joy
In the gravity play

Yes I know
It may sound the same
But each of one
Is different face

On the mountain top
Cause you know the place
I’ll meet you up
But we can rearrange

Yes I know
It may sound the same
But each of one
Is different face

Lights out may help
Cause lights out are the best
With you

“Rudy” Official Music Video

 

 

“Rudy” and three other singles from upcoming album called “Closet Leftovers” are now available to listen and download on all major stores!! –> http://hyperurl.co/RudySingle

“Rudy” was written about 6 years ago and was inspired by a girl I met once. I had chords and a melody written beforehand and the words came quickly to me. This girl had shown me how she rolls her cigarettes, which was inspiration for the lyrics “And if I go ; Roll one for me; Cigarettes you used to smoke; Hope you will quit”. Although some of the lyrics were based on real scenarios, the whole idea of the song is more of an imagination. I took some of the details of this brief non-intimate meeting and created a story. –> Press Release

Lyrics:

Oh Rudy in your eyes
Oh Rudy in your heart
Oh Rudy in you mind
Stay always on my side

And if I go
Roll one for me
Cigarettes you used to smoke
Hope you will quit
And if I die
Bury me so deep under all our lies
Hope you will quit

Oh Rudy talk to me
With your fluent Japanese
Oh Rudy in your mind
Stay always on my side

And if I go
Roll one for me
Cigarettes you used to smoke
Hope you will quit
And if I die
Bury me so deep under all our lies
Hope you will quit
