The Secret Hell Experiment

“One little angel fell right from the stars to Hell, but beautiful one, so beautiful one”

 

 

And welcome to….Hell..:)

When I woke up yesterday in the  Christmas mood with white snow on the mountain  I had the spontaneous feeling to share “The Hell Song”  with you,just secretly on Soundcloud…then today after waking up with some really heartbreakingly sweet letters about it in my postbox I just had a little thought:

As I have been wishing to give you all something pretty as a Christmas´gift and been wondering what it could be then I suddenly knew…I could give you this song,  as a free download until the end of the wonderful 2016 .

But to make it more fun, you should unwrap it first, ♡This way, dear beautiful beast ♡..—- →

And big thanks to those mindblowingly awesome folks: John Davis and Metropolis Studios for mastering,  Forbsey for the magic  and Veronique Vaka , Björn and Floki for letting me to record in their musical castle:)

I will keep the story of that song though in secret for now, but one day  I´ll tell you:)

Lots of love and snowflake-beauty,

Here are the lyrics🙂

THE HELL SONG

ONE LITTLE ANGEL FELL
RIGHT FROM THE STARS TO HELL
BUT BEAUTIFUL ONE, SO BEAUTIFUL ONE
THOUGH AIN´T NOBODY SAW HER NOBODY COULD SEE
HOW BEAUTIFUL ONE WAS SHE

UNDER THE NORTHERN SKY
ONE DEUCE WAS PASSING BY
SO PITIFUL ONE, SO PITIFUL ONE
AND LITTLE ANGEL SAW WHAT NOBODY COULD SEE
HOW BEAUTIFUL ONE WAS HE
HOW BEAUTIFUL ONE WAS HE

THIS WORLD IS TOO CRUEL FOR ANGELS
THIS WORLD, IT WILL BREAK YOUR HEART
AND WE WILL ALWAYS STAY STRANGERS
IF YOU DON´T BREAK YOUR WHITE WINGS APART

EVEN IN (THE) CRUELEST HEART THE BEAUTY HAS ITS PART
SHE KNEW FROM THE START SHE KNEW FROM THE START
THAT YOU WERE JUST LIKE ME, SO PURE AND HEAVENLY
WHOM IN DARKNESS NOONE COULD SEE
UNTIL I LET DARKNESS BECOME PART OF ME

AND THEN SHE FELL IN LOVE WITH HIM
RIGHT WHEN DID MELT HER WINGS IN RESTLESS CRUELTY
UNTIL SHE FELT HIS WARMTH WITHIN
AND FALLING IN LOVE´S THE MOST PITIFUL BEAUTY

(THIS WORLD IS TOO CRUEL FOR ANGELS
THIS WORLD IT WILL BREAK YOUR HEART
AND WE WILL ALWAYS STAY STRANGERS
IF YOU DON´T BREAK YOUR WHITE WINGS APART)

THIS WORLD IS TOO CRUEL FOR ANGELS
THIS WORLD IT WILL BREAK YOUR HEART
AND WE WILL ALWAYS STAY STRANGERS
IF YOU DON´T BREAK YOUR WHITE WINGS APART

The Story of :”Baby I Don´t Care” (original vs. ours)

 

Hello, it´s me, again,with blue stripes in my hair this time. It is a lot of fun to walk with a rainbow on top of your head, colourful as autumn, harmonizing with the nature like a wild animal. But I thought that as the new video is black and white, then this is how it looks in colour:) (just because I am always wondering myself about things like this when I watch black and white movies and pictures).

possi12

But making this cover for the Transvision Vamp‘s  hit “Baby I Don´t Care”(1989) was really a lot of fun.

I remember how I just got an email from Barry Snaith in March, right a day before flying to New York asking if we could work on a punk/rock song cover  together for a pitch , but we only have 4 days to finish it. And the  little rebel  inside me said “yes, sure” because a)he an awesome musician b)the short time just doesn´t let my inner perfectionist take me over…well..too much over. Sounds good. Let´s do it.

So I spent my first 3 days in NYC just working on the song with the mind support of the nice folks in the organic store across the street (who just last week had asked my friend (fairy)Racqui if my  song got already released….wow, you folks are just amazing, sending super hugs if you ever are going to read this blog post one day) And we made it, it was ready exactly by the midnight! And of course we were both super happy and surprised  to get to know that it was going to be released as a Christmas single.Juhhuu!

I know that a 16 year old me had never said yes to sing that song. Just because I really didn’t care at that time.I thought that songs of that kind have no real meaning.But now I understand that they had a meaning, but I just could not find or see it at that time. Having a boyfriend or girlfriend or whoever was my biggest nightmare and I tried to avoid it as much as I could.I even cut myself a haircut once that I found especially ugly  and dressed up like a creep, sometimes put a sticker on my face to keep all this stuff away from me. And it honestly worked pretty well…well, until there comes someone who sees your plans through ,sees your soul behind the mask and you have lost the war. Then you live and then you learn and then you grow until one day you discover that oh, I can now really tell a story through that song now. But it will be this time my own story , just with someone else´s words, but with my own emotions, thoughts and honesty.

When I first got the lyrics I did not understand what they wanted to say actually.I was confused if it was a sad song, a careless song, a happy song. But then I realized it doesn´t actually really matter at all.A “Happy Birthday To You” can also for some people be the saddest song in the world if they  maybe experienced something sad while that song was being played or sung, you never know. Words do not really matter, it matters how they are being said. Tone matters. Maybe Tone is the only universal language all humans share, speak and understand. Maybe there should be one wordless anthem  for all the world we could all sing .Just one certain thing to remind ourselves that we are all cousins on this little planet in the middle of the big universe and should keep together.

Making this song brought me this thought and I am so thankful for that , self-growth is the best reward in the world:)

But now it´s time for some fun:

Here comes the original:

And here comes ours. The collab between the fab  Mick Hone, Barry and Me. (So good to have the chance to see my own music video once with a “first sight”-sight because it was the first time when I didn´t edit the video myself. Easy feeling, Mick did a totally awesome job:)

 

Thanks for reading and watching and The Inconsistent Jukebox‘s (check out his amazing stuff please, this is really an extraordinary new kind of music movement, without a specific genre, hell yeah!) double A – side single will be out in UK and worldwide on 9th December via Supersonic Media. I think iTunes pre- sale has started already as well, so you can grab the song from there:)

 

I care about you all and see you soon,

Possi

vi-dii-oo

Hi lovely boys, girls and all the beautiful animals,

Just got back from tenting alone in the middle of the Icelandic wilderness…at the foot of a volcano actually…(I will share some bits of it a bit later) :)Now it is nice and warm to sit inside, drink hot tea and share the music video that just got out of the Flying Rabbit’s oven. Huge thanks Racqui, Rabbit, all the fairies, Gaex for mastering and of course You all for watching:)

Lots of love ,joy and August wonderfulness,

Possi.

)_+[P0;LPK  Oh, by the way, the song is now also on Bandcamp where you can listen and buy and enjoy:)

 

Day

 

7am. Teardrops of the rain on the first spring leaves. Five slices of cucumber on a slice of rye bread.Smoke of the clouds above your head. To watch a dandelion through an  another  dandelion.Catch a smile of a passer by. Take a walk to the unknown. Hear a magical melody in my mind´s ear. . See a ladibird with 5 dots. And a some little kids picking limestones at theseaside.Rest the tired feet at the end of the day. Send telepathic love to dear people around me. Fall asleep with a calm heart knowing  that I have appreciated the gifts today gave me.

This.

Is.

My.

Kind.

Of.

Happiness.

🙂

Dragonwalk

imageHi boys and girls. I wrote this small ( and a little bit funny)poem while I was walking through the rainy Reykjavík this evening. During the past two weeks in New York I just realized how we should just share all the weirdness in us with the world, as much as possible.Weirdnesses are beautiful.( The next post is going to be about NY ) Hugs towards you:)P.

 

Dragonwalk

I found myself from an empty town.

At the border of the horizon.

on my left hand there was night,

the last sunrays on my right.

Straight through the old graveyard

I left a trace –

in this empty town

the most lively place.

By the lake

stood a dragon

Majestetic and cold

of stone.

“Why would someone

sculpt a dragon

in the middle of a town

where no one lives…

and no-one any **** gives?”

I wondered,thought, did feel

it must be something that someone has seen

and wanted to make the world believe

that dragons are real.

I believed.

‘Cause I have heard some say, I remember,:

 

 

“They arrive with the first mushroom rains in early September.”

Possi’s secret Christmas playlist

possilist
Heihó dearest friends, how has your Christmas time been?

Mine has been quite busy. Just finished a couple of songs for Analogrunner´s EP that is coming out in the beginning of 2016. Did a remix for the first time in my life. Enjoying my own album recording process and trying to put my ideas in order, which is kinda a task.But despite that I still remind myself that it is important to take time for my loved ones and for enjoying :

Cold-cold weather. Icicles. Slippery roads. The Christmas tree that I got really cheaply from the second hand store( yes, a fake one…there are barely no trées in Iceland! So let at least those few ones stay where they belong, in the forest🙂. Candles, candles, as many candles as you can imagine. Gingerbread. Mulled wine. Grandma knitted socks. Christmas calendar and norhern lights. And of course  christmas songs. But not the ones we hear everyday and everywhere. Something much more fresh. And that’s what I must share with you🙂

“Snowflakes Falling Down” by Simon Panrucker

Simon Panrucker´s Christmas album   really is a hidden christmas gem and my most favorite musical find this year. Blessed be the day when I accidentally stumbled upon it on FMA website. A definite MUST HAVE in your Christmas playlist this year. So must that I even picked 2 songs for this post. Anyway, this is that kind of song I would be really proud of if I had written it myself…(Unfortunately or fortunately I didn’t , but it would be super great to make a cover for it one day, who knows) Beautiful melody. Interesting harmony. Unpredictable. Shortly, a fantastic track, in my opinion one of the best Christmas songs recently written…Thanks Simon for that!

 

 

 

“Jólaköttinn” by Björk

This is a traditional icelandic Christmas song. A bit creepy, isn’t it? Well, in Iceland there are 13 santas and they are all really naughty. One of them is jólakötturinn – a big black Christmas cat who steals and eats kids who haven’t got new clothes and taken a bath before the Christmas Eve. Mnjæu😉

 “Angels We Have Heard On High” by Sufjan Stevens

O-o-o,gloria-aa-a this is what happens if you put one of my favorite Christmas songs, one of my favorite musicians and a beautiful choir arrangement together. Magic happens❤ This song is from his Christmas album “Silver and Gold” and to be honest, you can skip the “silver” from the title because the whole album is just pure gold.

 “Christmas At Sea”  by Sting

Watching Sting´s live from  Durham Cathedral has been one of my most important Christmas traditions since I saw it for the first time exactly one winter morning when we ourselves( me and my best friends) were going on a Christmas tour in different churches in Estonia. So this video always brings me back those good memories. Basically this live is in my playlist from the day the first snow falls down until it goes away again in the spring.  This song is just one of the many pearls (And has a beautiful harpist singing beautiful gaelic so beautifully that I have shivers on my skin every time I listen to it)

5.

“Fairytale of New York” by Katie Melua and The Pogues

I think the most important thing for a singer is to div deeply into the song he is singing and let the song take first over him and then all the others who are listening. And this is IT! And a beautiful song too, of course!

 “White Winter Hymnal” by Fleet Foxes
This song takes me to the forest without actually going to the forest. Beautiful song, catchy song and a beautiful video. One of my this year´s favourite discoveries.

 

7.

“Little Drummer Boy” by Josh Groban

 There are about zillion different versions of that song but  my totally favorite arrangement is this one.

8.

“Vive Le Vent” by MIKA

O la la, I remember how we needed to learn this song by heart every Christmas for the French lesson before we could go and enjoy our Christmas vacation. Húrraaa! Another song from the section “good arrangements”. And MIKA is cool as well:)

“Winter’s Love” by Animal Collective

.Ohh, I would like to dedicate this beautiful winter song to all beautiful #vegans in the world;)<3

“Happy Christmas, You Guys” by Simon Panrucker

So good, I don’t even need to start thinking what to say to end this playlist, Simon Panrucker has already stolen my words:) I’m gonna listen to  this song out loud  in the morning of the Christmas day while making preparations for the night, and you should too !HAPPY CHRISTMAS, YOU GUYS!

IMG_5399kiisu

Sending gingerbread hearts and wish you all a lot of wonderfulness into the December time, be good children…well, just a bit naughty, but mostly nice, respect the plants under the snow, don’t step on them and don’t forget to build snowman and make snow angels😉

 

 

Kiss,

Possi

Strawberry-heart

I wish I only could put into words what happens inside a little girl’s heart when the sun is kissing her cheeks for the first time over an eight-month long winter. She sits  there nearby the lake in the middle of five swans eating strawberries. Little by little her frozen heart starts melting and becomes one with the lake. Her hair will turn into branches and ears into leaves ready to catch every song that the birds sitting on her will sing.

Have a beautiful loveful day and here is a little drawing for you:)

Your PossiWP_20150506_008

Uus

engillinn

 

Uus means “new” in Estonian and  every new is something  well forgotten from the old times . At least we have a saying like that. So let this little word be the spell for the next year and maybe it will tell something about it and maybe ,probably, likely, possibly there will be more new songs in this beautiful old the language of my heart and nature that the post  title is written in.

I draw a little goat angel for us all (because 2015 is the year of goat) to say thank you for the last year.He or she, i don’t even know myself, is  bringing  you peace, light, music and happiness. You can keep him everywhere, in your pocket, your ear, in the nose of the shoe or just in your beautiful mind – doesn’t really matter. Just that you know, he is there, taking care of you and me and us❤

 

Have a beautiful and happy new year, dear friends!

 

Your Possi (who is going to watch the New Year ‘s Eve bonfire near the sea. It is a heart warming  Icelandic tradition in the cold wind:)

This must be happiness

Having run up the street in the middle of this ice-cold starry nighted city,  hands and legs so frozen that I could barely feel them and a big scar on my knee under the woolen socks (girls who keep staring up to the sky don’t even notice the ice stones on their way) I opened the door of my little warm house and said to myself  : “This must be happiness….”
