about

Six years after Love Songs for Instant Success, Prins Obi presents a 5-track sequel EP entitled Love Tunes for Instant Success:

My favourite love songs are those captured somewhere between ecstasy and sadness, rejection and acceptance, excitement and frustration... That's what I tried to do with this (very) personal EP, using only essential music elements, dismantling any kind of persona and putting in the foreground personal experiences/emotions and their effortless transformation into melodies and lyrics.
Love & Mercy
Prins Obi

The EP is available for free download on Inner Ear’s Bandcamp page and in a few days it will also be released on cassette, in very limited copies, like the ones we used to make for loved ones.

Track Name: The Girl with the Golden Hair
in the silence of the evening
I could never guess that I was gonna be surprised
the feast was getting boring
and I was communicating through the 'northern lights'

you took me by surprise
with your moves and the look in your eyes
can't you see? I am a fool for you

the harmonics of your movement
could really match your manners, your unparalleled wit
golden lady, won't you tell me, can we steal some golden moments outside this scene?

never know when is the right time
to kiss your lips under the moonlight
can't you see? I really care for you

bring me, bring me my favorite wine
bring me, bring me the garment that shines
and the girl with the golden hair (who) won't stay much
but she won't leave my head

in the silence of the evening
I could never guess that I was gonna be surprised
the feast was getting boring
and I was communicating through the 'northern lights'

I never know when is the right time
to kiss your lips under the pale moonlight
I think I'm stuck inside a maze
babe, can't you see? I am in love with you

bring me, bring me my favorite wine
bring me, bring me the garment that shines
and the girl with the golden hair won't say much
but she won't leave my head
bring me, bring me my favorite wine
bring me, bring me the garment that shines
and the girl with the golden hair (who) won't stay much
but she won't leave my head
Track Name: Seasonal Beasts
come, wayward baby and sit by my bed
instead of standing on my doorstep in defense
I know you don't want me
I can see it in your eyes
is your love seasonal or is it my mind?

and I know I'm an asshole with something to prove
a glorious leap from the womb to the tomb
you're still my sister, my favorite one
please, don't destroy what I've loved in you

hear, my beloved one
don't take drugs to survive
me too, I'm stoned while I'm writing these lines
and I know you're gonna leave me
I can see it in your eyes
I'm just a mess with a fucked-up life

and I know I'm an asshole, you're a bit of an asshole, too
seeking acceptance from anyone but you
you shout you're not a robot, there's a button on me
and it's you who decides when to flick the switch

I never wanted to be your third man
the things that you're saying I completely understand
but there's something inside me unsatisfied
'cause when I met you it was love at first sight

and I know I'm an asshole, as vain as can be
not really caring for anyone but me
don't lose your patience, don't turn your evil eye
here is a song that's gonna make you smile (?)
Track Name: Silhouette
light as a feather against stormy weather
is there a chance for you, beautiful son?
dress like a monkey and act like a junkie
what matters the most is to try to have some fun

you cry in your pillow, like a weeping willow
those were the days that life had begun
in love with your sadness, impervious to madness
you have discovered the age of a new sun

I saw your silhouette in the dead of night
when night comes creeping, you can't help believing the signs

light as a feather against stormy weather
is there a chance for you, beautiful one?
forget the maybes, beware of the babies
what you have forgotten is trying to have some fun

I saw your silhouette in the dead of the night
when night comes creeping, you can't help believing the signs
and if you have to go, go with a smile
weaving goodbye to the crowd that waits for the king
Track Name: Happiness
you're a star
you're a fairy, you're a cat
you're as sweet as a guardian angel
I know I hurt you really bad
there's a devil deep inside of me
so, won't you help me fight it back?
baby, sometimes I feel so alone
