Fade Out

They will teach you how to be a girl
About Jesus and how sinners burn
They own half your lovin’ city
Wanna fade out
I just fade out

Fade out now
Fade out now

They tell lies about a Nordic race
It’s just politics to kill all gays
When free speech is cutting of my head
Wanna fade out
I just fade out

Fade out now
Fade out again

Tell me: Who needs police
That let nazis walk our streets
I’m so angry
I can’t sleep
I’m so angry
But I fade out

Fade out now
Fade out again

Fade out again
fade out again

Fade out again

New Single – Fade Out

On Friday I’ll release a very special song: Fade Out. Not only because I’m happy with the composition and think the musicians play fantastically, but because the text (written by Alexander Nyborg Olsson ) has clearly become the subject of debate before its release. A small piece of art for a text with no harsh words or references to illegalities in the pop world in 2023.
Now, after a little if and but, we get to play this (and many other songs on my upcoming album) for the youth at Flekkerøy until Wednesday, and we will do everything we can to make sure that absolutely everyone feels included at the concert! For those who do not get to hear the song at the junior school concert, I would be VERY happy if you follow the link below to “pre-save”. Then you will automatically get Fade Out on your release radar ????
Song lyrics are rarely autobiographical, and are not these days made as historical depictions. Something about fade out is self experience though. It’s the feeling of anger that ends up in powerlessness. There were many of us who knew this when people with a disgust for most people who can be considered “different” marched in pace, with police protection, down Markens in Kristiansand. Another thing that triggers me, is when people claim that certain people are “different” from what they ARE. Many have experienced this both in and outside Kristiansand.
There are also countless forms of “difference”, not just who you fall in love with, and we hope that the board around Fade Out can help some challenge their own attitudes towards those around them. For others it might just be a nice song. For some, it may be a little stiff. But that’s still fine, as we like to say in the southern part of the country ????

School cancels concert with Tom Hugo after reactions From parents

KRISTIANSAND: – It is a bit special that they cancel because of one group of parents who will censor culture. The only thing we want is to make difference harmless. They probably haven’t seen the concert or misunderstood what the lyrics are about, says Tom Hugo Hermansen, to Fædrelansvennen.
Among other things, he is known from the group KEiiNO, which has won Norwegian
Eurovision Song Contest.

Midnight Marina

Midnight Marina

You were my only summer jam

My very own

“California dreamin”

My abandoned

Marina

You were my faded summer nights

Your hazel eyes

Too bright in the moonlight

Dazzling

With no future

You

You – me

So high

Dreaming by the ocean

You

You were my midnight marina

In mun dieđe dovddát go maid mun
Go geasseiját láhkonit, de mun áibbašan

Ruovttoluotta go mun vuostaš geardde deiven du
Mu váibmui don leat bisánan, muhto lei go niehku
(With no future)

You

You – me

So high

Dreaming by the ocean

You

You were my midnight marina

It feels like centuries ago

Since California

On warm summer night I still see your face

I don’t know where to find our place but

You

You – me

So high

Dreaming by the ocean

You

You were midnight marina

You were a heartbreak

Still a heartbreak

My
My midnight marina

Chastises the Eurovision jury system: − Unfashionable

In 2019, the Norwegian ESC finalists experienced the same thing as Finland’s Käärijä did on Sunday night: Won the people, but not the competition. Now they hope for change.
