Nell Mamleeva It is such an association of self readiness to let something new happen in your life and fear that every step will be fatal. Favorite track: She.

Matt Love this album. First two tracks are amazing. I find the middle of the album to be a bit of a lull but still good- and then tracks 6-10 are a perfect finish. Favorite track: Late Night Solitude.

St:Leorik A real psychedelic and meditative masterpiece; as gloomy as the lyrics itself, but at the same time as warm as the warm rays of the sun over the cold cloudy sky, and as serene as a quiet soothing voice that you want to listen to for ages... Favorite track: The Path.

The Path 05:35
listen to me when I say that it's best to stay away from the path it's a place that's both now and then listen to me listen to me the path is a place that's both now and then drained ricochets rips back through me through the light rips through me in the glare of all hopes and dreams listen to me listen to me and the path is a place that's both now and then drained

She 04:08
she appears, quietly creeps to me then reaches out, silently seeps...in me I open up inside and then I quickly realize and feel that she is me and what it needs to be because she is me pretty lips part, sweetly speak to me "you're not alone, we're not alone, are we?" I open up inside and then I quickly realize and feel that she is me and what it needs to be because she is me and she is me because she is me

25 Years 04:12
25 years and in between a fate hand delivered by me how could I have known? just a boy, how could I ever know? nothing, can take this from me nothing please forgive me 25 years for me to see from the relief of A to the dark guilt of B how could I have known? just a boy, how could I ever know? nothing, can take this from me nothing please forgive me nothing can take this away nothing can take this away nothing can take this away nothing this glory slips away

Mist 04:40
4 AM and I drive the dark, the road, the mist comforts me time, time time melts away as the mist seeps deep inside me time time melts away as the mist seeps deep inside me and then it comes again and washes over me this cold mist comforts me and for a time takes me away 9 PM and I walk the cold, the night, the mist comforts me time, time time melts away as the mist seeps deep inside me time time melts away as the mist seeps deep inside me and then it comes again and washes over me this cold mist comforts me and for a time takes me away

34 Palms 04:50
off in the distance I see a place off in the distance is a place where the palms swayed on sunny days now it's gone, it's gone off in the distance time wiped away off in the distance was my home where the palms swayed on sunny days now it's gone, it's gone no one remembers no one remembers how I swirled and I swirled in the haze how I swirled and I swirled in the haze going to a place that no one remembers drawn to a place that's long gone I miss the place that no one remembers home was the place that's long gone no one remembers no one remembers no one remembers 34 Palms is gone and I am home again
8.
Rewrite 02:55
what is right is not always right it's hard to explain passivity's a losing fight it's never right, it's never right go away, go away, go away now it's time to make things straight to make things right it's time to rewrite it all, it all history is now set straight all things are right mistakes...repaired, erased, reset, rewrite
9.
gentle breeze rustles leaves outside quiet and dark 3 AM I'm at peace inside
10.
shaken by a dream I was standing in my yard on Blaine looking to the south at cloudy skies it felt like it was real golden leaves turn to brown a million pieces across the ground reaching towards the sky the cloudy sky the snow falls down on me

about

From the Projekt press release:
American darkwave/atmospheric act LYCIA returns to Projekt for the 4th release of their second era. In Flickers is an emotionally charged album of deeply personal darkwave/post-rock. The ten tracks are intriguing meditations on forgotten paths, corrupted hopes, and faint memories of beauty. The open-ended melancholy captures a cold and desolate spirit, a sound as somber as the lyrics themselves. PITCHFORK: "Arizona's LYCIA have been pioneers of darkwave... a noteworthy and boundary-pushing act."
