Like A Dervish

from We Are Still Machines by Armenia



"Like a Dervish" is my killer Digital 45 of the year on Bandcamp. It anticipates the release of the album "We Are Still Machines" in 2017.
With "Like A Dervish" I wanted to experiment with my voice, creating something intense and shareable, very close to the song format. The ambience is strange, mysterious, with unexpected openings toward the light. Rhythm doesn't give breath and the whole comes close to something that could be defined as "alternative dance".
The text (which mentions the imaginary character Slender Man, the so-called "boogeyman") says:

I'm not your Slender Man
I live in a broken day
I'm not your Slender Man

I eat like a dervish
I drink like a dervish
I think like a dervish
And I live like a dervish
Like a dervish

I arranged the song in two versions. The second is named "Waving". It sways. Like true dervishes, of course. :-))


I'm not your Slender Man. I live in a broken day. I'm not your Slender Man. I eat like a dervish. I drink like a dervish. I think like a dervish. And I live like a dervish. Like a dervish.

I install a human virus and I go to the result. Then the machines, both software and hardware, begin to bend, to heat up and become alive..."
