about

Barely a semester after his debut EP “Dead Notes” (May 2015), Grégoire Fray - under the moniker The Hills Mover - returns with “Winter Shades”. A collection of three songs about heart break(s), health issues and his considerations about taking (or not) radical action to change the world. Dry acoustic guitar, distant synth waves, snaking clarinet and ethereal voices: that’s all he needs.

Premiered by Nothing But Hope and Passion: nbhap.com/daily/premieres/the-hills-mover-winter-shades/

about

The Hills Mover Brussels, Belgium

Grégoire Fray’s acoustic escapade, The Hills Mover, finds its origins in his own personal mythology (already suggested in his post-industrial project Thot) and develops itself through aerial songs based on a minimalist sonic architecture.

Track Name: Skadi
One single life is not ample, not for me.
I’m tending to get so much others, I’m craving.
But time had a rough effect on me lately.
I’m planning to step away from it, coz
Distance has been slaying me.

I’ve managed to reach the highest peak.
I’ve managed to hide my inner fear.
And set you free.
Then I was falling down to the bare, where I’ve been digging.
I’ve been trying to save this tale, figuring out
Why have your passion forsaking me?
Heaving has been slaying me.
Distance has been slaying me.
As I was trying to keep it safe.
Track Name: Dukkha
Taste me as if I was the only one.
There won’t be anything else to grab.
I’m going to make your body melt.
There won’t be anything else in your flesh

Beating
Throbbing
Stabbing your strengh.

Burning
Surging
Breaking your nerve.

Feel me as is I was your deepest love.
There won’t be anyone else to lust.
I’m going to tear your heart in pieces.
You won’t have anyone else to call.

I don’t know when it’s gonna end.
I don’t know when but I can’t stand anymore.
I don’t know how it’s gonna end but I want it fast, very fast.
Track Name: Asger
Have you ever though you could be the last, to resist?
I’m trying to find the words that you’ll need, on the fence.
Scream and burn, all the shame that we drag
Raise your fist and shut your mouth wide open
On the edge.

Have you ever tried to use your own skin, as a bomb?
Take my hand and help to rise above my own fears
I’m on this concern, looking for the way to explode
Further than we’ve ever been looking for.

I stand in the past but I can’t save Jan from burning down
All my friends will join we’ll reach the top of the choler.

Have you ever tried to use your writing, as a bomb?
Take my hand and help to rise above my own fears
I’m on this concern, looking for the way to explode
Further than we’ve ever been waiting for.

I wanna run away from this mess
Are we strong enough to keep on believe in love?
