about

Aidan Maizels Melbourne, Australia

Sophisticated and diverse, whilst avoiding the traps of self-indulgence, ‘Daydreams’ contains strong melodic guitar work that evokes touches of Tame Impala and Steve Hackett. With textures arranged and layered a la classical music, and building on forms found in jazz and ambient music, what results is a unique and moving experience that defies genre and rewards repeated listenings. ... more

Track Name: Daydreamer
Born in tough times if you weren't in the game
Neighbours act rough if you're remotely strange
Turned inside to find some sort of joy
Wound up alright for this lonely boy

I'm the daydreamer

With open eyes I ignore their sighs and think of what could be
I move only when uncomfortable and lie in ways that suit me
I walk around and never frown and drink my weight in tea
I blow bubbles at my teachers, as they get mad at me

I'm the daydreamer
I'm the daydreamer

I can't remember how it works, I don't know how it's done
But in my head that's no concern 'cos I'm always having fun
Track Name: It's OK
There's a love, but it's not a love that is destined to end
Like a fantasy about a friend
But the love for your fellow man, who does everything he can
And tries to understand, just like us

He makes a living however able
Busts his gut to put food on the table
Even if he doesn't understand
But neither do I

With no looks to kill, or international fame
He cherishes those who know his name
He can play the game, even if he doesn't understand
But neither do I
Track Name: Dawn
as the darkness settles around me
I feel helpless and alone
my life seeming futile
my soul an irksome drone

as the thoughts of making it end
brush by me like a breeze
I think of all my people
and what it is they need

the light that is approaching
is not the end of my time
because only when my name is no longer spoken
will I be able to rest.....in......peace.....
