about

A quasi quattro anni di distanza dal secondo album How to prevent a cold, Persian Pelican aggiunge un altro tassello alla sua discografia con Sleeping Beauty.

Rispetto ai lavori precedenti, l'alt-folk del songwriter marchigiano Andrea Pulcini si differenzia questa volta per atmosfere più luminose ed elettriche che spesso dilatano la forma-canzone con loop di chitarre (White Noise, Valentine) e piccole scie psichedeliche ben supportate dalle ritmiche di Marcello Piccinini (Beatrice Antolini). Non mancano le aperture melodiche (The Forest, Somber times) e gli episodi più acustici. In uno di questi (Orphan) fa capolino l'inconfodibile voce del raffinato folksinger americano Tom Brosseau.

Leitmotiv dell'album è il sogno lucido, strumento prezioso per affrontare quotidiane paure, inibizioni o perdite dolorose. Un invito a risvegliare la 'bella addormentata' che riposa in ognuno di noi per stimolare la creatività, dimenticare gli egoismi ed abbandonarsi a un'armonica 'danza della realtà' di jodorowskiana memoria.

La produzione artistica di Sleeping Beauty si è avvalsa della collaborazione di Paola Mirabella (honeybird & the birdies, Vincent Butter) e Daniele Gennaretti (Bud Spencer Blues Explosion, Vadoinmessico, Western Noise Orchestra, Giovanni Truppi) che inoltre ha curato personalmente la registrazione ed il missaggio dei tredici brani.

La data di uscita è prevista per il 19 aprile 2016 grazie ad una coproduzione tra La Famosa Etichetta Trovarobato, Malintenti Dischi e Bomba Dischi.

Non resta che chiudere gli occhi e lasciarci trasportare.

Track Name: Daydream
When you sleep on my side, you forget the thing you love most.
You are a demon in love, waltzing with a ghost.
Were you thinking or just daydreaming about your life?
Were you singing or just conceiving your first child?

Dreams drain your spirit to live your daydream.
Dreams drain your spirit. Do they make you feel like.. me?

Shake it! Shake it all night long.
Shake your dream from your hair.
It's your bedtime, my beloved!
Send me to the end.

Dreams drain your spirit.
Do they make you feel like?
Track Name: All Brain
Please, test my brain
and tell me that her love is over.
“Get out and take back your fucking roses
and don't ask why”.

I try to smile and raise my eyes to the sky.
Hear me when I call, where is my loveliness?

Oh, oh, oh, it's a critical moment.
Oh, oh, oh it's a crucial moment.
If there were no dreams how could I sleep.

It's breakfast time.
Does coffee go bad overnight?
I'm afraid of mold.
That will be the end of me.

Oh, oh, oh, it's a critical moment.
Oh, oh, oh it's a crucial moment.
If there were no dreams how could I sleep.
Track Name: White Noise
Fifty years to go..
I'll say “I know this world.
I was here before.”

The power of the dead is that we think they see us all the time.
They are in the ground asleep and crumbling.
Maybe we are what they dream at night.

Can you help me?
I don't want to see only what the others see.
They are taking pictures of taking pictures
and they don't care what they felt before.
Track Name: Pastoral
I lose my mind every night, I'm always dry at night.
Should I take care of my liver or stop dreaming?
I love to fly in the dark and find my beauty mark.
“Keep your eyes wide open, as a lover”.

I've always been shy.
I had to walk the line.
Show me how to cry.
What do you think about the stars in the sky?

Why when I close my eyes I live beyond the stream of time
and fall in love in your nightmares in daylight.
You are acting like the canary in the coal mine.
Be the star of my movie, lucid dreamer.

I've always been shy.
I had to walk the line.
C'mon my war is over
now you can come closer.
I've always been shy.
I had to walk the line.
Show me how to cry.
What do you think about the stars in the sky?
Track Name: Orphan
When you will swim forever,
you'll know what sound resides in a spiral seashell.

You were so cute and clever,
you didn't rage against the dying of light.

Every lover, every sinner has more secrets
than a poem with no destination.

I'm dreaming when you're feeling blue,
that's the only thing to do. I'm already an orphan.

You were so happy
in your bridal gown.
I am so sappy.
I burn your flower crown.
Track Name: Getting Older
I am built to be kind, my dear..
to be polite from dawn to dusk..
then I try to numb the light.

We have been happy for a while.
On a misty night you chose up sides
hanging up on me.

It's hard to leave behind my dream,
even if I'm getting older.
I'll be still alive
if you won't give me the cold shoulder.

After all, do you want
to know a secret?
When you stole the show
you didn't realize.

It's hard to leave behind my dream,
even if I'm getting older.
I'll be still alive you can't steal my imagination.

You feed my imagination.
Track Name: Dolphin
I'll choose the life that is good for me
and the habit will make me fine.
I know, my home is not the sea.
It's only a matter of time.

Save your life
and don't forget that I,
singing little lies
I ruined my mind.

Maybe there I will rest in peace.
How fast will sea levels rise?
I will sleep on a willow tree
waiting for the flood.

Songwriters and coward crows
are bending with the wind.
If you can't hear the choir
who can figure them out?

Save your life
and don't forget that I,
singing little lies
I ruined my mind.
Oh someday, I will be a dolphin.
Track Name: Somber Times
I keep the lid on my world,
the rest doesn't matter to me.

You dip a sugar cube into my cup
watching how it soaks up tea.

Silence. No bridges are connecting us.
A whistle motif outside.

I rip up the bread for the sparrows
waiting or dying in the snow.

These notes exist scattered somewhere,
waiting for the one who will put them in order
in the same way, at the same time.
I'm waiting to breath your smell of guilt.

You start crying, telling me your dirty deed.
I won't give up on us, you know.

Don't be afraid of these
somber times, everything will be alright.
I'll blanket you with my red eyes.
Track Name: The Precipice
I need more time.
Will I live my life over again
and making the same mistake?

I saw a beautiful woman beyond the precipice.
How longer will I wait before my lips decay?

I must act out passion before I can fall in love.
Dreams you know are what you wake up from.
Find my passion before I can fall in love.
Dreams you know are what you wake up from.

Life has no meaning,
the moment you lose the illusion of eternity.

Anything would be better than this agony.
You can't deny it.
Track Name: The Forest
I find myself among strangers because
I drift here and there trying to feel their passion.
I can't live too long with a single dream.
Love is the beginning and end of everything.

Shake the medicine to mix it. I will take it.
Hold my hand, I can't sleep alone.

Take me to the forest
to the night of my soul.

Tender is the night for Fitzgerald.
We don't cross the line of betrayal.
I ask you to remember
when you win and I surrender.

Take me to the forest
to the night of the soul.
Track Name: Sleeping Beauty
Who am I?
Let me lose my shadow and turn off the light.
A crocodile is crying for the carols that are gonna die.

If I believe my love is still illegal.
I'm gonna kill a prey like a seagull.
I will not rest or enjoy my time.
If I believe my love is still illegal.

Maybe I, I should keep me 'clean'
for my state of mind.
Love is gone. The song is over.
I could go on and on.

If I believe my love is still illegal.
I'm gonna kill a prey like a seagull.
I will not rest or enjoy my time.
If I believe my love is still illegal.

..and if you disapprove my line of duty,
I cannot say “wake up sleeping beauty”.
I will not rest or enjoy my time.
I cannot say “wake up sleeping beauty”.
Track Name: Valentine
I find no peace and all my war is done.
I cannot heave my heart into my mouth.

I'm only waiting for the night.

I don't have to cover my eyes
because of the bright light
and you don't know what to do
when there's nothing to buy.

I'm only waiting for the night.

“If my Valentine you won't be,
I'll hang myself on your Christmas tree”.

I saw a mermaid playing in the sea.
I couldn't think she was singing to me.

I grow old, I can see
why are you still sleeping with me!
Track Name: Restless
Did you ever wonder why a bird sings?
I'm the spirit of this forest, come with me.
Don't run through the trees,
when you lose your speech.
Feed your wild imagination
and listen to me:

“My only regret in life is never telling you how I felt.
Never resist an impulse. Whisper to me tales of horror.
We belong to nobody, and nobody belongs to us.
Something like eating a bitter orange, the first kiss on a rainy night”.

Rest with me,
for a while.
Rest with me,
leave my bed dry.
And in death as in life,
memories are made of smiles.

Draw me that insect,
so we can ride him and be six feet under.
