pelussjedigs This album is a
M-A-S-T-E-R-P-I-E-C-E.
A gentle and educated blend of future and past, glued together by astonishing vocal performances.
I'm not exaggerating if I say this will easily become a classic of the avant garde soul. Favorite track: Nomad.

nikezfinizio The fresh mix of propulsive beats, alternative sounds and tense melodies running through this record stands as the perfect example of how cool modern day music can be. Technoir at their absolute best. Favorite track: Nomad.

CAUSE AND EFFECT Everything seems connected, constructed I’m still trying to wrap my mind around this It’s hard to let it go Everything I always cared about It’s just a bunch of bullshit Who are you? Who am I? How can somebody spread so many lies And get to sleep at night? But then again, just think about the cause and effect just think about the cause and effect just think about the cause and effect

The Dreamer 03:37
THE DREAMER There’s life all around me You’re one in a million How did you find me? You look so familiar... My static condition, in a world in constant motion Say whatever you need to say! I blame you! Cause I need you! I blame you! (I don’t lie) Cause I need you! (Dreamer) I lose my sanity Yet here you are, my lover It’s hard, to see what’s real Ohh you are, such a dreamer My static condition, in a world in constant motion My static condition, in a world in constant motion Say whatever you need to say I blame you! (I don’t lie) Cause I need you! (Dreamer) I blame you! (I don’t lie) Cause I need you! (Dreamer)

Icons 02:39
ICONS The silence (in the dark) Like fire (in the dark) The icons (in the dark) A nation (in the dark) Everybody says to me I need to gain their sympathy Everybody says to me That we can’t be just you or me The sirens (in the dark) Are calling (in the dark) The icons (in the dark) Are falling (in the dark) Everybody says to me I need to gain their sympathy Everybody says to me That we can’t be just you or me We see you in the dark... Like shadows in the river... We see you in the dark... Like shadows in the river.

Haters Hate 03:16
HATERS HATE Playin’ hide and seek I’ll just leave I just don’t want to I’ll never be your prey You like it too low I want to overcome my enemy Don’t wanna become my enemy I want to overcome my enemy Wait... I want to overcome my enemy Don’t wanna become my enemy I want to overcome Cause at the end of the day, haters just hate You’re looking for the thrill To fill the void you’d be left into Word pouring like drops Straight from the guts I want to overcome my enemy Don’t wanna become my enemy I want to overcome my enemy Wait... I want to overcome my enemy Don’t wanna become my enemy I want to overcome Cause at the end of the day, haters just hate

HAYAMI / BITTER AWAKENING She’s the greatest fighter In a second She can be a nightmare for her enemies... With shine and grace Grace and shine You will never know when she’s gonna attack Her fate’s unknown It’s been centuries When the time will come She’ll be born again She’s the greatest fighter In a second She can be a nightmare for her enemies... With shine and grace Grace and shine You will never know when she’s gonna attack She comes from the beyond Humans don’t understand... But when the dark will rise You will see her come... She’s the greatest fighter In a second She can be a nightmare for her enemies... With shine and grace Grace and shine You will never know when she’s gonna attack She’s the greatest fighter In a second She can be a nightmare for her enemies… (Instrumental) We can’t forget the things we’ve done (x2) Together We can’t forget the things we’ve done (x2) Together

Il Male 03:09
IL MALE (English Version) The tree that is my memories Now it doesn’t grow anymore They say time brings wisdom But it also brings more fear Trying to give life To the pieces left Looking for the root I only find a scar (x2) E’ mai nato qualcosa dal, male? E’ mai nato qualcosa dal, male? E’ mai nato qualcosa dal, male? E’ mai nato qualcosa dal, male? The limbs are leafless And they don’t blossom anymore I know time brings wisdom Maybe I’ve lingered for too long Trying to give life To the pieces left Looking for the root I only find a scar (x2) E’ mai nato qualcosa dal, male? E’ mai nato qualcosa dal, male? E’ mai nato qualcosa dal, male? E’ mai nato qualcosa dal, male?

THE BEAUTY WE’RE LOSING Going on is unnatural A way to stand still Having fun is collateral A way to ease the mind I give my love (is this mutual?) I need to take a pause ‘cause going on is unnatural Like your sick fake smile I have time to spare But you don’t need words to get me Beyond compare, is the beauty in everything we’re losing Your love, is so hysterical You hide a sense of guilt That’s where we’re incompatible I just put my mind at ease I have time to spare But you don’t need words to get me Beyond compare, is the beauty in everything we’re losing Going on is unnatural A way to stand still Having fun is collateral A way to ease the mind I give my love (is this mutual?) I need to take a pause ‘cause going on is unnatural Like your sick fake smile I have time to spare But you don’t need words to get me Beyond compare, is the beauty in everything we’re losing (x2)

Nomad 02:55
NOMAD There’s no place like home they say I've learnt it the hard way Some are made free To walk the world as they please Some make their own chains I don’t think I’ll go today Where is home anyway? I don’t want to belong to any place But did I have a choice? Do I belong somewhere? Do I belong somewhere? Maybe there? Do I belong somewhere? Do I belong somewhere? Maybe there? Do I belong somewhere? Do I belong somewhere? Maybe there? Do I belong somewhere?

Insomnia 01:10
INSOMNIA No matter how hard I try I really can’t sleep tonight Memories come to me Like black waves, that I can’t see oooohhh that I can’t see No matter how hard I try No matter how hard I try No matter how hard I try

THERE WAS A TIME I don’t know anybody anymore... There was a time I knew everybody There was a long time ago... Now, I don’t know anybody anymore (It was a long time ago) I don’t know anybody anymore (Anybody, Anymore) There was a time I knew everybody (It was a long time ago) There was a long time ago... I don’t know anybody anymore I don’t know anybody anymore

SPACE AND TIME We use to look up to the sky For the answers we can’t find We use to look up to the sky For the answers we can’t find We need to go through to space and time For the answers we can’t find We need to go through to space and time For the answers we can’t find Do you see what I see? Do you feel what I feel? Do you see what I see? Do you feel what I feel? Do you see... what I see...? Do you feel what I feel...?

about

Milan based couple and artistic duo Technoir veer to the
darker corners of soulful electronica with their new album
Never Trust the Algorithm, their second LP that melds beauty
and anguish underscored by their love for hip hop, Radiohead
and Alan Moore comics.

"For electronica artists, it’s imperative to not get bogged down in trends or fads, and Technoir consistently rises above and pushes the envelope by staying true to the groove."
AFROPUNK

“The music created by the duo is of the highest quality and can definitely draw international attention”
SOUNDWALL


"Their music is not mere emotional R&B but a deep glitch of recent acid jazz, that rightly fits in the post-black wave guided by Flying Lotus"
ROLLING STONE
