about

“Full of Knots” is taken from EXEC’s debut album (Tambourhinoceros 2016) and is released including two live recordings from EXEC’s debut performance at Bremen Teater in Copenhagen in November 2015.

Troels Abrahamsen released his debut album under the moniker EXEC in February. The Limber Real is an intimate, emotional and analogue collection of music for piano and vocals. The album was recorded in collaboration with producer Mikkel Bolding. Troels & Mikkel have spent hours, days and weeks looking for the perfect place to record every song to capture the right sonic moments and from there to capture the perfect takes. A constant search for the right acoustic moments and situations.

"Full of Knots" articulates the challenge of being filled with thoughts while wanting to clear ones heads and just float along without thoughts and concerns. Such existential reflections characterizes all songs on The Limber Real and Troels’ precise observations and poetic lyrics underlines that Troels not only excels as a singer but also as a songwriter.

Track Name: Full of Knots
A soul full of knots is better
Than no soul at all

A body that rots beats having
No body at all

But my head

Oh this head

Can I have someone else’s instead?

To simply exist is better

Than not being here

To have all these things
All these sights, all these sounds
All those years

But this head

Oh this head
I would rather have air there instead

A soul full of knots is better
Than no soul at all

A body that rots beats having
No body at all

But this head

Fuck this head!

I would rather have no head instead
Track Name: Going Under (live @ CPH:DOX, Bremen Teater)
Just like so many before me
I know that there's an end for me
I am no master
I am no king

All of those voices are telling me
How I should live and how I should be
But I am no master
I am no king

But I know
Where I am going
I am going under

No one is out to correct me now
I have escaped their grip somehow
I am no master
I am no king

I am the wind I am the rain
I am no one and have no name
I am no master
I am no king

But I know where I am going
I am going under
Track Name: Life is a Liquid (live @ CPH:DOX, Bremen Teater)
Our lives are like a liquid
Flowing through two separate grooves
One heading for the future
The other for the truth
Both end up in the ocean

One trickles through so steady
The other is spilling over
One stream will make you ready
The other into a rover
Both end up in the ocean

One wakes you in the morning
The other in the night
