about

“The new EP, Dead Notes is out today and Grégoire takes us through the hills and valleys of a dystopian society that brings chills down your spine.” (Fourculture, USA).

“Quand il n’officie pas dans Thot, Grégoire Fray nous offre quelques petites escapades dans ses side-projects. Dernier en date,The Hills Mover, avec ce superbe et planant « Relieved », touchant aux frontières de la folk”. (Vacarm, France).

“Il faut croire que le Bruxellois d’adoption a eu envie d’une touche de calme : ce premier EP(6 titres) est acoustique, folk, post-folk même, et a encore plus à voir avec l’art du songwriting (Mad/LeSoir, Belgique).

“Dead Notes delivers an emotional journey through six songs, relying on a very minimalistic song structure, shifting from aerial tranquillity to poetic obscurity.” (Terra Relicta, Slovenia).

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: Relieved
I don’t know where to begin
I tangle with my own strings
There are stories to be lead
There are paths to be revealed
A distant past
I’ve been waiting for too long
Since my shades have disappeared
To the city

The fields are drown, the water towers are dead
I need to go back to where the answsers await
The road is distant, not sure I’ll go on my own
But I need to go back to where the silence prevails

The dead notes need to be found
Bring’em on where they belong
Memories are made of girth
Full of wind and wrought of dust

The fields are drown, the water towers are dead
I need to go back to where the answsers await
The road is distant, not sure I’ll go on my own
But I need to go back to where the silence prevails
And I need to run back to where the questions remain
And I will try to fight and push the city away
And I need to run back to where the questions remain
But I need to go back to where the silence prevails.
Track Name: Windwalkers
What's the meaning of your name
Who never vanishes
Your shadow who last in memories
And who follows my trail

What's the purpose of this pain
That I let coming in
These lost friends quivering in my cells
Asking for salvation

What's the path I must follow
To get close to your heart
Is this song going to disappear
With your voice I can't hear

Am I still sailing, already molting
When the sea stops to blow
I'll never forget, where you put my steps
There's so much to relieve

When are we going to find the peace we all deserve
The dead notes are waiting for too long
And feeling so alone

What's the purpose of this fate, that I let coming in
Take my hand and keep me by your side
I don't want you to go.
Track Name: The Unbearable Lightness of Dancing
I drive my car right down to Bohemia
I have no clue, I have no map, only a book
I cannot read a all, only a look

I'm sitting tired in this car, back to the gig
7am, I have'nt slept, my breath is gone
Down to the night, and to her lips

I saw a dog on the couch, begging for love
Her bloody eyes, her velvet skin,
She wanna dance, until we break on throught
The anatomy of sand

And the she's dancing

I'm listenning to the voice, who's yelling inside.
She wanna ride, the southern wave

I drive her car right, back from Bohemia
I ain't affraid, I have no map
Only a scar, that I can't get rid off
And I like it

And I lick it.
Track Name: Vélès
And then the devil came to me
He was so afraid, he could'nt speak
I gave him a room, he fell asleep
As soon as he's dreaming, I've started shaking
He had a notebook that I've been searching
A dozen map I could not read
A billions of queries I've been dreading
As soon as he awoke, I've started singing

I could'nt stand to turn into, this greedy man who sold his soul
I'll raise my fist upon your fate, become the man you can be proud of

And then the devil followed me
Across the valley, up to the hills
We walked for months and ran for weeks
And he was fading
We took the train to the final spot
Across the sea, we've never stopped
The light was bleeding out from the lid
Someone was waiting
The devil disappeared

I could'nt stand to turn into, this greedy man who sold his soul
I'll raise my fist upon your fate, become the man you can be proud of

Never try to stop me, I'm arising
Neve stop to love me, I'll give you back
