Lost + Directionless

by Candle Nine

Nowhere 05:17
I don't belong here
Ego Hunter 05:38
you can't find me if I'm somebody else you can't catch me if I'm not myself
Reach 05:30
Close is never close enough My side of the bed is shrinking I should have known that Someday I'd lose it all
Hierarchy 03:35
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
Nausea 04:42
Persona 08:02
Rapunzel 05:02
"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
Singularity 05:24
Gone 05:54
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?


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.
