DIGITAL AND CASSETTE EDITION ON BANDCAMP AND OTHER PLATFORMS

DJ MAG: "10-track trip through glowing ambience, mesmerising dream pop, musique concrète and deconstructed trance."

Inverted Audio: "Eilien weaves a web of entrancing harmonies and deep frequencies, along with the angelic musicality of their voice, aligning the album somewhere on a 5th-dimension parallel with early electronic pioneers, with smatterings of folk songwriting influence dotted into the futuristic ambient production."

The Quietus : "Virman created these tracks using a text-based audio coding platform, but the real story is the sweeping allure Virman's compositions have. 'There Is Someone Who Looks Like Me' sounds like the exact midway point between Enya and Holly Herndon, a strident love song to the digital ether, while 'Blue Skies' and 'SMS' come across like synthetic odes to synthetic panoramas."

Ma3azef : "Digital Lovers dovetails pop and ambient music, creating a contemplative listening experience which bursts with the rich quality of its materials, the flow of its fluid structure, and its delicate aesthetics"

Bandcamp Daily: "Finnish singer-songwriter and producer Eilien blends sleek, futuristic ambient with timeless folk and pop for a truly out-of-this-world LP."

LYRICS

FEELS2

how would
you feel
how would you feel
in my dreams
how would you feel
how would you feel me

how could you feel
how could you feel
in my dreams
how could you feel
how could you feel
inside of me

standing
where i was standing yesterday
before the dawn
yesterday
before the dawn
how could you be
where i was standing yesterday
how could you feel
what was coming after me

how would you feel
how could it be
how would you feel
how would you feel


Blue Skies

we go dancing
dancing softly through the night
through the forest
waking up the morning light

in disguise there is no fight
in disguise there is no fight
oh let the sun still wait
please let the sun still wait

we go walking
we go walking through the night
through the blue skies
through the blue skies of the night

wait for me my love
wait for me my love
wait for me my love
wait for me my love

we are lying
lying gently on the sides
let me guide you
let me guide you through the night

oh let the sun still wait
please let the sun still wait

wait for me my love
wait for me my love
wait for me my love
wait for me my love


There Is Someone Who Looks Like Me

i was you

Us

when i was younger i really cared
how would you see me
quite aware

when i am my age
i do not care
i wanna please me
with your hair

my little lover
don't be afraid
i wanna please you
as much as i dare

my little beauty
feel how i care
i wanna love you
without fear

juuuhuuuu
silently close to you
juuhuuuu
walls will not hide

juuuhuuu
silently close to you
juuuhuuuu
walls will not hide
