“To me the song Candy Tongue is about turning points in life. Something is changing and it’s up to you which direction you want it to take. The candy tongue is a symbol of that message…”

“Candy Tongue” is the second single taken from the third studio album Lost (IMR 014CD/014LTD-EP) by Trentemøller, featuring vocals from Danish singer/songwriter Marie Fisker. “Candy Tongue” slowly builds from whispered, emotional vocals into a rousing song with over-steering guitars and evocative chants. This single reveals the essence of the third record, which covers all eras of electronic music, and also invokes aspects of the guitar-driven second album. This single will be accompanied by a beautiful music video, directed and produced by Thomas Jessen.

“Anders Trentemøller gave me his hunting track for this song a while back. It was in December and I had caved in the studio on my own, writing the melody and lyrics for this song. Beautiful big snowflakes were drizzling down outside the windows. One morning on my way to the studio I was listening to the radio and heard the novel The Smallest Woman in the World by the Brazilian author Clarice Lispector being read aloud. I was deeply fascinated by the story, and bought her book Family Ties. In these novels of every-day-life we are presented with the inner life and moments of illumination and revelation. Somehow, inspired by this author and her strong personality, intuition, wisdom and poetry, Clarice weaved into the song….”

CANDY TONGUE

A fountain of love
The beginning of a touch  
Safe In the eye of a storm
As your mind leaves
The house

Morning is breaking up
Your body’s stirred
And your house is burning up

Candy Tongue…

The funny things you want
Is never never gonna be enough
Hunting on a blood buzz

Candy Tongue, Dandy tongue
I believe it’s coming on
Oh Clarice, Oh Clarice
Tell tail of epiphany
Candy Tongue

Spirit of one animal
Stronger than me, Candy tongue
For better or worse you’re falling off
Skyscrapers high your line

Candy Tongue, Dandy tongue
I believe it’s coming on
Oh Clarice, Oh Clarice
Tell tail of epiphany
Candy Tongue, Candy tongue
Turn the pages and be done
Be with me, be with me
Trick the tricks of memory

Be with me, be with me
Trick the tricks of memory

Candy tongue…
Candy tongue…
Candy tongue…
Candy tongue…

 

(Hélène Cixious in: Entre l’écriture about Clarice Lispector)
¨this woman, our contemporary, a Brazilian woman (…) it is not books that she gives us, but the act of living saved by books, narratives, constructions that make us step back. And then, through her window-writing, we enter into the frightening beauty of learning how to read: and we pass, through the body, to the other side of the I. To love the truth of what is alive, that which seems ungrateful to Narcissus eyes, (…) to love the origin, to be personally interested in the impersonal, in the animal, in the thing.¨
