about

Following his acclaimed 2010 debut "The Muse in the Machine" [Tympanik Audio], Lost + Directionless is a project years in the making. A decisive continuation of the musician's haunting body of work, Lost + Directionless is his most cerebral and ambitious project to date. An album which strikes the delicate balance between form and formlessness. Between nostalgia, and a crumbling, decaying vision of the not-too-distant future.

Through Candle Nine's ever-evolving style, from his early performances as a singer-songwriter, to his bloom into electronic music, he has become adept at exploring the contrasts of beauty and dissonance. Candle Nine's use of glitched-out synths, multi-layered guitar assaults and harsh, yet nimble, percussions creates an atmosphere which is both eerie and serene.

Track Name: Nowhere
I don't belong here
Track Name: Ego Hunter
you can't find me
if I'm somebody else
you can't catch me
if I'm not myself
Track Name: Reach
Close is never close enough

My side of the bed is shrinking
I should have known that
Someday I'd lose it all
Track Name: Hierarchy
I've been defeated
I'm in retreat
The queen is dead
I've no one left to protect

You collapsed it
Long live the queen

Long live the queen
Track Name: Rapunzel
"Find me
Save me
You don't want me?
You can't have me!
But I know you'll never
Scale these heights
Without me"

Sometimes
I still think of you
But I'm better off here alone
Without you

Leave me
You're not the only one
In need of escape
Leave me
Stay in that fucking tower
You call home

Home
Track Name: Gone
I should stop this
But I can't stop this
I can't help doing what I do
I need to create
I need to express
Without it
How will I prove myself
To myself?
