outside the party, inside the newsletter

someone released a new song + video last week (that someone is me)

outside the party, inside the dream is a song i wrote around last year this time. the lyrics are self-explanatory. explaining “the meaning behind a song” (as i am asked to do in some interviews) defeats the purpose of trying to write well.

soft glas with the additional prod + bgv. stellar as always. as with philadelphia, this music video was directed by ran zhang, shot by quinton wong, edited by jonny ho, produced by natalie wong, includes photography by gabriel lee and stars stefani kuo, jessica sin, brett warning, jonny cheung. we shot these two music videos on the coldest weekend in january in cheung chau. i wore hella heat tech and still my skull felt like ice. it surprises me every year how cold hong kong gets. i loved not really being in the music video but being really involved in the cutting process.

lyrics in the form of a run-on sentence:

when you’re trying to fall asleep do you think of me like i do think of you? when i’m trying to fall asleep the silence of absence is the silence of you, hope you dream we’re running together ‘cause we stole the table salt and pepper

this is who i am not who i was, this is who i am this is not because i want anything i don’t want much, i just want sugar and honey and trust, could you meet me outside the party inside the dream when its winter?

hurry up we don’t have enough time before the real world interferes
over here, closer, dear, minimize our distance until we disappear

i need to wake up early tomorrow ten papers due lots to do, you say could we do this another time on the weekend, ‘cause they won’t wait for me like i’ll wait for you

hurry up we don’t have enough time before the real world interferes
over here, closer, dear, minimize our distance until we disappear

other than looping my new song i will permit you to stream some other songs… here are my recommendations / songs i’ve been listening to.

more words and more music soon. thank you for subscribing to my bullshit, sincerely with looooooove
