about

An album that elegantly combines the songwriting-virtues of classic pop with an indie musician's awkwardly charming take on R&B, dance and 80s melancholy.

The music has been written over the past two years. Jesper's longtime fascination with vintage drum machines and hip-hop beats is one of the cornerstones in the songwriting that’s also characterized by multiple layers of Jesper's vocals used as an musical instrument, while his distinctive lead vocals guides the listener through the melodic cut-up universe and its striking synth productions.

All songs are recorded and sung by Jesper alone. Nis Bysted (producer of Iceage, Cancer, Lower) has produced and mixed HÔN together with Jesper and the result is a powerful signature-sound where you can either plunge into the musical deep or let your body move to the music – or do both.

“I have no notion of what is most true or most me, I just notice that I have these feelings, and then I start the beat and hope to vanish” – Jesper Lidang.

Track Name: Silent Lover
I would seem blind in this fake alliance
And no government
Would have seen me cry if I looked into their eyes
Every day
Couldn’t find me
Know my secret mission
Got no vision
Clear
But I feel death as shaking emotions

Got no time to dance but leave the radio on
And I
never gonna miss another second baby
You don’t believe me
When I preach it to your mind
Why should you believe me
I can see it in your eyes

Don’t fall too deep
We got love like ecstasy
Don’t fade away
You’ve
Got to take what you need

I find love is a quivering ocean
And I fear no pain
But keep your head low cause there is nothing to find
No cause to evade this
No cause for ovasion
No I don’t feel it deep inside
But I know you’re ready

She got time to waste so leave the radio on
never gonna miss another second baby
But I won’t go through this
I see it in your eyes
You lost your way girl
Loss is in your eyes

We go all the way
Animal syndicate
Hold the demons down
Making everything ok
Yes we go all the way
Animal syndicate
Watching everything go down

Don’t fall too deep
We got love like ecstasy
Don’t fade away
You
You’ve gotta take what you need
Today is a loss of emotions anyway
Track Name: Body Engine
We got everything we need
I never wanted more than I could carry
Thoughtless
Every corner’s homeless
When we both get lonely
Stare into the open sky above
I need another drug to make me stay right here

You got heartbreak coming your way
Things will never really be the same
I got heartbreak coming my way
Slowly we fall out
Slowly we fade

You never exhale

Bullshit
I don’t even know what’s keeping me here for hours and hours
Breaking like flowers
wanted to see you
Lost in you baby

You got heartbreak coming your way
Things will never really be the same
I got heartbreak coming my way
Slowly we fall out
Slowly we fade

You never exhale

Think you know the words I’m about to say
Just give in to it – we don’t want to stay the same
You wanted some
I want everything

You got heartbreak coming your way
Things will never really be the same
I got heartbreak coming my way
Slowly we fall out
Slowly we fade
You never exhale
Track Name: Soulcatcher
Yes you’re to blame when your soul is ashamed

Weightless and on the go
So out of reach
Got no senses although you feel
I’m bound to be real
You got no worries
I never want it to be
Out in the open
My body beyond all appeal

You break the silence
Causing me violence
Breath
Hold down the force
When the world falls apart
Just breath

You have got to learn what it’s like to be part of the deal
Someone ready
You have got to learn how it’s like
To love you baby

Keep my senses aside
Senses aside
For you
Soulless body
Now keep your senses alive
Your Senses alive for me

You break the silence
Causing me violence
Breath
Hold down the force
When they’re breaking your heart
Just breath

You have got to learn what it’s like to be part of the deal
Someone ready
You have got to learn how it’s like
To love you baby

Yes You’re to blame when your soul is ashamed
Track Name: Honeydream
You are in my dreams
Dont appreciate
The way you treat me no
Want to wake up now
Closer to the start
Closer to the heart

and I miss you - push away absolution
Feeling closer to over
Never wanting the end
And though right here
I don’t feel no emotion
Remember how we could sweep through it all
Seconds fade into days

Time and time again – into the waves

You are in my dreams
Got to state the game
Seem to loose control

There’s wicked blood inside me it’s ok
There’s wicked blood inside me it’s ok
There’s wicked blood inside me it’s ok

But I miss you - push away absolution
Feeling closer to over
Never wanting the end
And though right here
I don’t feel no emotion
Remember how we could sweep through it all
Seconds fade into days

Cause you’re my fantasy
Holding on to this
You’re my everything
You take it all away
You’re my honeydream
Try to catch the breeze
The breeze

And I miss you - push away absolution
Feeling closer to over
Never wanting the end
And though right here
I don’t feel your emotions
Remember how we could sweep through it all
Seconds fade into days
Yes I miss you
Push it further and further
Every move is an ocean
Floating further away

Time and time again – into the waves
Track Name: Trippin'
You don’t seem to recognize me tho I wear nothing
Got a face for every day
I’m fools on parade
Just wanted to taste like you in every fucking way
Just want to hold so tight
you make your weak escape
Just trying to get away from me
just trying to be like me
Just trying to get away from me
Just trying to fall asleep
I be all physical
No I won’t fear no thing
Somebody get me out tonight
Come on come on everything

You’re soulless like the wicked
You’re flawless and you’re trippin’

You don’t seem to recognize me tho I wear nothing
Got a face for every day
I’m fools on parade
Just trying to get away from me
just trying to be like me
just trying to feel so free
come on come on everything

You’re soulless like the wicked
You’re flawless and you’re trippin’
Track Name: S.U.B.
GETTING A MISTASTE
IDYLIZATIONS
THEY COMFORT OUR HEADS
BOY
EVERY GAME LEADS ME TO
NO TRUTH
NO YOUTH
THERE’S NO TIME TO MIX THE MEDICINE
AND ANYWAY
WE BETTER RUN

BOY, YOU GOT THE WASTELAND
GOT THE WASTELAND GO
MEET YOU DOWN BY THE ALLEYWAY
SUBTERRANEAN TREASURES

GET BORN
WEAK SPAWN
I BLAME ANYONE
YOU CAN’T TASTE THAT
CAUSE THERE’S NO ROOM FOR DISHONEST CREEPERS
EVERYONE’S A LOSER IN THE END
AND INNOCENSE
FALLS
SLOW
GO
ALL OF THESE FACES DECEIVING
ALL OF THESE FACES DECEIVING
WE BETTER RUN

BOY, YOU GOT THE WASTELAND
GOT THE WASTELAND GO
MEET YOU DOWN BY THE ALLEYWAY
SUBTERRANEAN TREASURES
Track Name: Vulture
Back when we kids
Like loaded guns
Run with me now
A little faster
Soul meet a soul
No gap in time
I be your sweet disaster
Now we’re awake
But we want to sleep
Nothing ever satisfies
Wanting to go
But my legs are tied
System denial
System denial

Better look at me now
Now you hold the vision
Get a hold of me now
Now you got the vision
Better take what you get
But you hold the vision
Get a hold of yourself
Now you owe the system

Strip him down
Make ’em steady
Pick a line from the script yeah
I’m reborn every second there is
You gon’ die on every page
I’m no one
I’m no one

They gon’ make you fall and then feed you

So you Friday-up you sad ass clown
Put your pedal to the metal
Leave me now as I slip away
You’re the freakiest little devil

Just hold your head up high

Better look at me now
Now you hold the vision
Get a hold of me now
Now you got the vision
Better take what you get
But you hold the vision
Get a hold of yourself
Now you owe the system

Strip him down
Make ’em steady
Pick a line from the script yeah
I’m reborn every second there is
You gon’ die on every page

I’m no one
They gon’ make you fall and then feed you
Track Name: Shout
So out of order
But why can’t I fuck this way
Let’s talk in new inventions
Your Ace fabrications
Got a new order
Got a bruised body to save
So today I loose the feeling

Together we shout within
Forever we shout to live

So I intend to
But I feel a lot better pretending
Gotta fuck up new inventions
Your World Fabrications
Fake a new order
Gotta take it downtown
like a slam dunk baby
And then you loose the feeling

Together we shout within
Forever we shout to live

Hear these words’ design
Hear these words’ desire
Hear these words desire
Hear these words’ design
Hear these words’ desire
Hear these words desire
Hear my heart’s desire

I know it’s us against the world
I know I feel you up against my mind
I know it’s us against the world
I know I feel you deep inside
I know it’s us against the world
I feel your skin close to mine
Feel it
I know it’s us against the world
Can you feel this full attention?

Hear me shout
Track Name: Last Boy
We sat up
Way to slow
And we be like lovers
Blessed souls
Lights go down
It wasn’t us
Just a goddamn miracle

Never meant to pull you down
I would see you again
holding on
Every burning cold insight
Let you breathe for a little while

And we sit and let it grow
To the sound of rock’n’roll
Never meant to take it slow
When your heart is rock’n’roll

We sat down
Hands real slow
And we would drift like real lovers – take it out on each other
be like moving obstacles
in the hands of the blindfolded
Never meant to pull you down
I see you again holding on
Every burning cold insight
Let you breathe for a little while

And we sit and let it grow
To the sound of rock’n’roll
Never meant to take it slow
When your heart is rock’n’roll

Anywhere you will roam and I wanna go
Anytime love begins
We make it spin
Every breathe of my soul I try hold
Every breathe of my soul I try hold
Track Name: New Waves
Too young
Too old to remember
Everything
Drained to the core
Never meant to stay ’round here forever
Never meant to be so unreal

But your new wave
Gets me high
Your new waves
Tonight

You got
Everything I want though
Nothing seems to cure
Dreamless fights
A loveless hunter
Keeps you insecure
Tonight

Nothing gets me going better
Secretly I adore this time together
Where you’re lips make it real

Don’t preach
Don’t say
No love is meant forever

You got to where you wanna be and baby
you wonder why
You’re at the station getting high
You got to where you wanna be and baby you face me now
With desolation in your eyes

Too fast
Too caught up in circles
No one smokes for free
And I
Never meant to hold on the past fury
Insecurity

But your new wave
Gets me high
Your new waves
Tonight

You got to where you wanna be and baby
you wonder why
You’re at the station getting high
You got to where you wanna be and baby you face me now
With desolation in your eyes

You can lean on my shoulder
When you got nowhere else to go
You can lean on my shoulder
