Following the release of the French Pop-infused single “ANGELIQUE”, Xeno & Oaklander reveal more of what’s to come with a limited 12” vinyl single and digital release of two more tracks from their new album “HYPNOS”. Insomnia is a slow and low nostalgic dirge, with sweeping synths over a commanding bassline – backed with The Light, The Whisper: a more upbeat and urgent dancefloor hit, sparkling and mysterious, perfect for any late night DJ set.

LYRICS:

INSOMNIA

White nights
Insomnia
Black lights
Insomnia

Hide from the stars that never set
Lay down your head and be at rest
A rhythm is rising
No-one is watching
And still there’s no waking

White nights
Insomnia
Black lights
Insomnia

A day without end
Rays of the stars
Shield me from dark
And careless nights

White nights
Insomnia
Black lights
Insomnia

A vigil below the sidereal sky

Insomnia


THE LIGHT, THE WHISPER

Do you remember
In the dead of winter
The sun was ochre
The sky was silver

The Light, the Whisper
