about

"Nodnol" is the second full length album by Gothenburg-based singer/songwriter Eric Dantanus. Inspired by the harsh, lo-fi production of the garage rock-revival scene, the act blends this with its love for the more complexed ideas of the 70's new-wave sounds, with brooding surf-guitars, stabbing organs and heavily distorted basslines. The album was released on the 13th of March 2015 by independent label Sound and Vision Unit, and is available for free streaming on Spotify, as well as a free digital download or 7$ physical CD-R copy (including a smashing amount of 5 extra bonus tracks, only with the physical record) here on Bandcamp.

Track Name: Enigma 1
All along I was wrong,
From the start, from my heart
For so long I could see you clear as night

There's only for a while this time,
There is only for a while this time

All the while, all the way
I'm here, I'm there
Remember when I could see you,
And you were as you is?

It is only for a while this time, I know
You've got me thinking of some otherwhere to go
But it's too late for that anyways
Track Name: The Price (Kill Me)
You aren't special
There's nothing to you
You keep pretending,
Like you are holy

Who are you now?
Who are you now?
Who are you now?
Who are you now?

While you can, kill me dead
Kill me dead

Unlike the others I have the answer
Don't speak no riddles,
Won't even answer

These walls are all too thin to cover up what's being done
I know they whisper and they murmur,
Yet they never make a sound
I dob't know why,
I don't know why
The glasses and the ashes makes it hard to get around,
They sparkle and they're shining bright
I knew you were profound
But these eyes are all on fire and the fire will be drowned
It'll be drowned

While you can, kill me dead
Track Name: Fifty Seconds of Noise
Tried to warn you like you're half blind
Can't be bothered here by your side
Trapped like water in disorder
Shift my focus and it's gone
You don't know this, I was half blind
Till' this morning here by your side
She is like water, I'm not bothered
I'm just tired, or I'm weary
It just all feels so undone

Her eyes, her face,
Is hanging over me,
Her eyes, her face
It never stays that way
Her eyes, her face,
Is hanging over me
Her eyes, her face

What you have done in your past time
Doesn't bother here by my side
On the border of disorder
Get some sleep before it's gone

Her eyes, her face,
Is hanging over me
Her eyes, her face
It never stays that way
Her eyes, her face,
Is hanging over me
Her eyes, her face,
It never goes away
Track Name: Last Living Magpie
I don't believe it, you should've seen it
Clear as day in the evening, you'll soon be leaving
Won't you, won't you?

Plead all the warriors with the same stripe
Plead all the warriors with the same stripe

I stand defeated, you said you'd leave me
The rain drips from the ceiling as I hear you breathing,
It's you, it's you

Plead all the warriors with the same stripe,
Sleep all the warriors with the same stripe
Track Name: Get Fined
I was the middle of the center part,
I could taste what I'd hate,
I had my bubble and it took me far,
Just like a car, just like a car
I wanna dine with the New York elite,
I could spawn what they'd later delete
I wanna shake it off and run away,
Just like a car, just like a car

You should've seen his face,
Can't really say the same,
You should've seen this place,
We could've done alright

I wanna get fined,
I wanna get fined,
I wanna get fined,
I wanna get fined,

I was the middle of the indica,
Could've faced what was too late
Got in to trouble for the way you are,
Get in the car, get in the car
I wanna sleep with the middle of day,
Lay around till' the sky is grey
Come pick it up or get out of my way,
The way you are, the way you are
Take me home

I wanna get fined,
I wanna get fined,
I wanna get fined,
I wanna get fined,
I wanna get fined,
I wanna give up
I wanna get fined
Track Name: Saturations/Holy Ghosts
You feel the shadow on your eyes,
Before me, standing
But it's so hard to breathe
You hear the silence of the night,
Before me, standing up like nothing wasn't real

I'm tired, can't you die already?
I am tired of your face
So sleepy to my full potential
I get weary around your face

You feel like nothing's ever been so holy
Trying hard but failing at the seams
Your tears are hurting even worse, before me
Lying down when things are getting real

I'm tired, can we go already?
I am tired of this place
So freaky, but it doesn't feel good
I'm not longing for you at all anymore
Track Name: Lecture in Reverse
The aftermath is worst,
But you were never to cease,
The burdens you breeze allover the sheets

There's no light, fall in your eyes
We'll get left,
Let go, let go
(I left)

You should've saved my sorry ass,
You should've been available
You should've been available
You should've been available
You could've saved my life, my life
I love you, you should've been available
You should've been alive

But this lecture's in reverse
But this lecture's in reverse
But this lecture's in reverse
But this lecture's in reverse
Track Name: Myana
To be alone with you,
It's hard enough to get a hold of you
I speak too many times,
Of distant stars or black holes in the sky
I tried, but as I do
I squeeze out all your juice
Inside those eyes is everything,
Or maybe nothing at all

I wanna be the first to break,
Give or take, fake your aches and steal
I don't mean anything,
I just need everything
To steal, to get away

You got a mouth so hard,
You got a mouth so hard

So it's already over, my Anna
I've bled as you joked this thing through
I was hooked from the start
Driving round' in your car
But you don't really care
(Cursing at traffic, cursing at traffic)
I don't mean any harm,
Simply hoaxed by your charms
And how gently you took me under your arms
Arms, your arms

To get a hold of you,
It's never as I pictured it to be
We sleep too many hours,
The distances and the lengths are taking toll
I wanna be, but I never am
I never am
But what I'll do when things come out of gloom,
Is up to you
I'd scream so hard until the silence stops

I wanna be the first to make you okay,
What it takes of me
I don't feel anything, it's almost frightening
To leave, to go away

But you got a mouth full of harm,
You got a mouth so hard

It's already over, my Anna
I never thought you'd follow through
You know wherever you are I was hoping you'd starve
Now I don't even care
(I don't, I don't)
I believed in those lies, all the answers inside
And the fact you'd lead me into the fire
I was under your charms as you stomped on my heart
It still hurts when it's beating

That time I told you I'd always hold you
Track Name: Nodnol
She came like a bazooka
In a haze I don't want to forget
We were meant to break,
But you made it out somehow
And stayed okay,
And safe

So I'll take you home if I have to
Treat your wounds if you'd want to
Go ahead and change the weather,
I can't seem to make it better
We could fight against the silence
Create art of all the violence
We could do those things, we're gonna
Through your hair and through your coma

She went like a shotgun,
She left shells all over the bed
We were gonna wake,
But I'm just assuming you are late
Or maybe on your way

So I'll get a cab if I have to
In the rain just like we used to
Lay around because we want to
Light it up because we'd like to
I'd get a gun if I'd have to
Break the law because she wants to
Wait around until the rain has stopped,
That's how we do it from the bottom up

(Talk to me,
Let me feel you)
Track Name: The Airing of Grievances
She's in love with the morning,
She finds it boring to love something else
Weak, without any warning
Haven't you called me?
I'm already done
I'll wait till' the evening,
I'm hardly believing we're not made of dust

She's a lot like the water,
Fit for a slaughter but never around,
To witness the flashing,
Us tenderly crashing ourselves on the run
I'll wait till' the morning
My mind's already strolling
I'll wait till' the skyline cracks
And the stars all pour out instead

She's in love with the morning,
She finds it boring to love something else
Speak without any warning,
Always so adoring but already gone
She's the daughter of water,
Attract to disorder that's already gone
(I'll wait till you're leaving
I'm hardly breathing and bleeding this dust)
Track Name: Spaghetti/7th Year
The clock's ticking away,
Oh, the time takes toll
I've turned a hundred eyes against one
And it feels so dull
But that night you nearly died,
I would recycle myself each time
To get a load of that massive fire
My lie, their's paws keep hold of you

What'ya trying' to say, that there's nothing to do?
I reached out my hand but wasn't able to follow through
So the curtains are shut, there's no light shining, what's it to you?
You tried to beat and bend and execute the mood, now didn't you?
Afar away, need I say?
Disarray the other game
Here to stay, far away
I'm okay, she's alright

The spaghetti, the fallen nectar and the obvious meet to greet
The seventh year is passing by and all hope is left to flee
Track Name: Enigma 2
Always on the vertigo,
I'm leading you away
From the promise broken forty times
And bleeding severely
Attending on a tuesday night,
That feeling you always have
That something soothing contradicts,
The evening's terrible

She is not around no more
So I'm leaving, I'm leaving here
For somewhere else,
Where nothing can deceive me
Like here does
I'm so unfair, I'm so unfair
She says those things I can't argue with
Still I'm falling, down and gone

But I'm not sorry,
I'm just falling
Bring me down as far as you can,
Please

Let me take a walk with you,
I'm pleading,
In a way I'm lacking all those fancy words
To lead you in my way
You stay up almost every night
I'm seeing you awake,
And it hurts me down to every bone
I'm leaving now that you're not here

I'm so unfair, I'm so unfair
Track Name: My Dusty Parabole Can't Receive Your Foreign Statics
She would extend her borders like an open odor
Making use of what she knew before her shadow's cast on their own
She'd break law and order with an old recorder
Couldn't make up an excuse for what we'd done
She was always frightening, going off like lightening
She was cold but I was soft and so it all went away

I tried almost everyday,
But my dusty parabole cannot receive that foreign static of yours

He took her breath away, she could've swayed away
At night when you're live in front of those massive eyes
To get lost is just a sip away, have you ever been this way?
It'd be better if you stayed away

(You wanted me to get some,
You even called from a pay phone
Said something I recognized
But hung up before it was done
Hung up before I was done)

(I tried almost everyday,
But my dusty parabole cannot receive,
that foreign static of yours
The foreign statics)
