about

New York-based record label Youngbloods presents "Pharaoh's Island": the first single release from Israeli singer, songwriter, and film composer Zoe Polanski's forthcoming full-length "Violent Flowers".

"Pharaoh's Island started out as an exciting and unexpected match between one of my guitar loops and a Goblet Drum rhythm (a very common, household instrument in Israel). The unusual combination of sounds inspired me to think about an Island east off the shore of Sinai (Egypt) and a little bit south to the Israeli city of Eilat. This island, called Pharaoh's Island, or "Coral Island", is the site of an ancient fortress, used throughout the centuries as a strategic point in wars between the people of the area. What enchanted me about the place was the fact that underneath this militarized land there is a parallel universe that exists underwater, in the base of the island - an exceptionally rich colony of corals and marine life. It's this shifting of focus from the surface inwards that inspired my musical and lyrical expression in this song."

"Violent Flowers" will be printed on limited edition 12” vinyl LP and released across digital channels worldwide on July 17th, 2020.

lyrics

Deep in your eyes
Where two silent waves whisper
You’re free from disguise
And free from any mission

Fire away, it’s a landslide
Too many times you held back
Fire away, crystal soldier
You are soon to forget
What goes down
In your heart that burns with endless fire
In your heart that takes you higher and higher
In your heart that burns with endless fire
In your heart

See what’s inside
Where the grainy dunes whisper
See where it hides
And your soul will grow richer

Fire away, it’s a landslide
Too many times you held back
Fire away, crystal soldier
You are soon to forget
What goes down
In your heart that burns with endless fire
In your heart that takes you higher and higher
In your heart that burns with endless fire
In your heart
