To all lovers who had to disguise and justify their longing, those who could withstand the resistance against their way of expressing desire, to those who keep challenging a monolithic depiction of intimacy despite the viscous restrictions of societal norms. To all the broken and glorious hearts who keep reimagining what we call “human” and “natural”. Let LAVA transform fear into possibility and peril into exuberance.

An ODE to desire, to the multitudes of sexualities and sensory pleasures, to the moments we fully inhabit the illusion of a shared experience trying to evade solitude. Both elegiac and tempestuous, ODE is a synesthetic meditation on craving connection with other bodies, textures and spheres.

KARMA is a song about abundant consumerism of online content, new age spiritualism and the emotional and social culture around it. As a stream of buzzwords in random order and rapid succession, it tries to bridge the gap between an over-engineered reality and the desire to reclaim a connection with nature, or whatever is left of it.
