In 2014 the time has come for our debut album, Routine. The opening song, Circle, is a contagious track that glues easily in the brain. The lyrics talk about our routine, about us being a part of “the machine”. Ant Underwater and the track that gives the album the name Routine, drink on the fountain of synthpop plus distorted guitars and lyrics that talk about being out of tune with the world, about the “ant that likes living underwater”, everyday conversations, different points of view and the dreams we all have. The closing song, Lonely, was inspired by the story of the 52-‐Hertz whale, that wanders around alone in the Pacific Ocean. She has a genetic mutation that stops her from communicating with other whales. Her singing is transmitted in a frequency that is so high (“I scream higher and higher”) that the other whales can’t hear her, at the same time that she can’t hear the other whales singing (“No one answers me”). The song has an outstanding, “Gallupian” bass line, and it closes the album in a unique way.
