“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

“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.”

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

 

Fourth and final single “Lights Out”

Over the course of the year, singer-songwriter Tender Glue has released 3 singles leading up to the “Closet Leftovers” album release and is now set to release the fourth and final single “Lights Out” on Friday 1st June. —-> http://smarturl.it/LightsOut-Single

During the writing process of this last single “Lights Out”, Tom explains how he was strumming the same unusual chords pattern that he had already used for 2 other songs. He then started singing, “Yes I know, it may sound the same, but each of one is different face”, as he realized the song had the same sound but was written at a different time. This single, as Tom describes, ended up being about a recollection of past days and experiencing life together until our lights go out. Along with his other songs, this track was recorded in the closet of Tom’s studio apartment, concluding the last of the four singles released from the album. Press Release

But we can rearrange

Yes I know
