about

Francesca Lago affiche une forme peu commune (…) la mélancolie s’insinue règuliérement dans ces jeux pop, pleins de caractère et souvent piquants, et que l’on doit à une visionnaire fort bien entourée. Une réussite.
Emmanuel Hennequin, Obskure magazine (F)

Eine Sängerin zwischen Singer/Songwriter und IndiePop, die man uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen kann. (…)Ungewöhnliche Instrumentierung, überzeugende Arrangements und eine propere Stimme. Alles passt. Klarer Favorit.
Sound & Image (D)

Now here's an album that grew on me (…) Nothing here is filler or a mere throwaway and it is that quality that gives this album that most elusive of things: lasting value.
Bluesbunny (UK)


« Siberian Dream Map est bourré de titres pouvant chatouiller les charts indie. » Denis Zorgniotti pour Benzine Magazine
Denis Zorgniotti, Benzine Magazine (F)


(…)de muziek weet je continu te grijpen en is bij vlagen echt verbluffend mooi en overdonderend. Grote klasse!
Fileunder (NL)


La vitesse avec laquelle la douce voix de Francesca Lago séduit l'auditeur est telle que… on est déjà persuadé de tenir entre les mains un petit joyau.
Olivier Wouters, Music in Belgium (BE)

“A música de Francesca Lago ondula por um vasto mar de emoções, matizadas por uma atitude sincera de entrega apaixonada à arte de tecer melodias e por uma voz ampla que soa por vezes afável, outras tantas urgente.”
Dominio Dos Deuses(P)

Non c’è solo Mina a mandare perle dal buen retiro helvetico. L’aggraziata Francesca Lago si è rifatta una seconda vita musicale con l’uscita di “The unicorn”, che ne ha rivelato la filigrana d’autrice efficace e interprete sobria, e tanta concretezza del savoir faire … il suono non è mai solo tappeto nemmeno nelle tracce più posate e rarefatte… Sì, parlami di te, bella signora, del tuo mare nero nella notte scura.
Enrico Veronese, Blow Up (I)


Femme fatale e fanciulla, malinconica e speranzosa, in grado di fondere apparenti idiosincrasie in una poetica del divenire che non si accontenta di una eccellente compiutezza, ma lascia sempre spazio all’immaginazione. Tre indizi per un colpo perfetto.
Stefano Pifferi, Sentire e Ascoltare (I)

… È la luce che viaggia attraverso le migliori espressioni del rock donna (…) la ringraziamo per questo ritorno.
Letizia Bognanni, Rockit (I)

(…) Si potrebbe andare avanti così(…)ma dovrebbe essere già chiaro che il livello di personalità artistica e di forza espressiva è davvero fuori dal commune (…) "Siberian Dream Map" resta una perla che merita applausi.
Stefano Bartolotta, Ondarock.it

Track Name: On my way back from the moon
On my way back from the moon
On my way back from my solo venture
Wondering how I can find
The words good enough so that I can describe

How it feels to wander in her beauty
Her silence and dust
How I got lost in her peaceful craters
And her seas

On my way back from the moon
On my way back from my solo venture

Now
I’m coming back to our planet with atmosphere
And my discoveries I’ll whisper into your ears
And a secret that will remain untold
If I’ll be silent and calm as she was

Walking up there
Being careful not to stumble against
Her rocky surface

Now
I’m coming back to our planet with atmosphere
With my discoveries I’ll whisper into your ears
And a secret that will remain untold
If I’ll be silent and calm as she was

A signal loud and clear
Time has expired and I’m made to breathe in
I have to go back down down down down down down down
Down
Track Name: Leech
As I watch you sucking my blood
I recall how it all started

I thought you were an inoffensive animal
And therefore I granted your request
I did open my veins for you


You started sucking and growing
Me weaker, you growing
Yes You started sucking and growing
Me weaker, you growing
Oh no

Leech only now I understand what you do
It hasn’t been easy to accept
I’ve seen you around with other people
You playing your games of denial
Playing games of indecision

Now this one thing you don’t know yet
Although I tried hard to explain
leech your game has been revealed
and soon from my body you will
disappear
Track Name: Slapstick
Slapstick

Take it take it back
Count up to 15 in your head
Turn it upside down
Now you’ve got your good result

Sparks then a fight
Sitting near the back door of the devil’s house
The big mess has begun
Now show me how do I get out

You take the good away
You take it, you break it, throw it away
You make me hate everything
You make me, yes you make me hate
oh no no

Found out their game from the back door
His will got strong, get it right Joe
If they attach get the stick out
This time

You take the good away
You take it, you break it, throw it away
You make me hate everything
You make me, yes you make me hate
oh no no
Track Name: Do you know where to go
Do you know where to go, when it’s cold and dark
Will you be in a safe place when the night comes
Do you know where to go when the night comes
Will you be in a safe place, with no morning star
Track Name: To the wild
One evening I sat silent looking at her
If there was a secret, then that was the time
Careful with my approach march
And her strange daring ways

Two people were watching they were shaking their heads
What is she doing isn’t she scared?
Her fingers and nails looked like claws
But I stayed
Shaking off my fears

Then came the day to go away
Her fingers and her nails, go away
Clear and untamed, just go away
My heading and my head
You go away, go away

Tidal forces tell you whether it’s yes or no
A firm grip you will have to like or go
Your wild instinct never looks back
Now you are smiling at your morning star

And then one day she went away
Her fingers and her nails, go away
Clear and untamed, go away
My heading and my head

She‘s going back to the wild
Track Name: Still before the spell
Sitting on the brink of this world and the other
Dropping soon your latest note for me to disentangle

You put me in a frame
Write me pretty things
I become red in the face
You, still before the spell
Awake when I’m asleep
Roaming in yourself

Resting on the brink of this world and the other
Wearing a life jacket ready for your triple header

You eccentric and blue, you accurate fool
I become red in the face
You, still before the spell
In your trance-like state
Letting go as if you would fall asleep
Track Name: Bad dream
A handshake
A sinister and cold gaze
Empty the round hall
Signs to proceed

Big beat
Coming from a big room
If I’ll make it in there
I will be safe
The door is open

Hey, it’s nothing but a bad dream
Like all those bad dreams
You wake and you’re safe
They come back crawling

Bad dream
It’s nothing but a bad dream
They came from a black pit
You’re throwing them back
Their endless falling you praise

His sinister and cold gaze
She’s fighting all the demons and then when she gets there
A hundred have left

Hey, it’s nothing but a bad dream
Like all those bad dreams
You wake and you’re safe
They come back crawling

Bad dream
It’s nothing but a bad dream
They came from a black pit
You’re throwing them back
Their endless falling you praise
Track Name: Raised by the aliens
Between the moon and the sun
For me the first one
Die of cold, might make me die of cold
Between the moon and the sun
For me the first one
Die of cold, might make me die of cold

And I’ll touch that stone, I’ll keep control
Then move another step towards the edge
You know yourself so well
You have always been keen on

Mother of the ancient truth
weakened but resistant

Between the moon and the sun
For me the first one
Die of cold, might make me die of cold

It is with success you played your game
Here’s my disgust until I accept
And when you see I am cracking up
You would smile and say I am so worn out
Now how much longer will it take
Before I will find my place to rest
Track Name: Treasurer the 5th
I can see through it
I can touch fire now
I could go trough hell
Won’t hurt me no more

Only a treasurer has authority over me
Oh me, can’t you see what I see
I know I’m a treasurer
Pay attention to this strange wind rising

Eyes are wide open
Who dares watching there?
She is leaving soon she’ll be one like me

Only a treasurer has authority over me
Oh me, can’t you see what I see
I know I’m a treasurer
Pay attention to this strange wind rising
Soon it will be here

I am ready now
I’ll fight my enemy
I am standing up
No sickness no disease
I’ll break the spell
Track Name: Bring the noise
Bring the noise
When noise is action
I’ll bring some love
Bring satisfaction

You will find me there
Leaving footprints
As I climb up I’ll lose myself
In to rarefied air
In a very dark sky
Perfect and silent

My enemy appears on the scene
If you get closer I promise I’ll hit you
I will make you fall, your face covered in mud
Away, away away
If you get closer I promise I’ll hit you
I will draw my poisoned sward

Bring the noise
When noise is action
I’ll bring some love
Bring satisfaction

I will keep the past distant and quiet
And…
And this rarefied air
And this very dark sky
Perfect and silent

My enemy appears on the scene
If you get closer I promise I’ll hit you
I will make you fall, your face covered in mud
Away, away away
If you get closer I promise I’ll hit you
I will draw my poisoned sward


Away away away, if you get closer I promise I’ll hit you
Track Name: Hey hey sentry
It was on a dark night, I embarked on my quest I looked up high, in the sky a million stars.
I didn’t know their names, I said hallo then moved my left foot and then the right one:
in the sky a million stars.

Hey sentry, would you let me in your kingdom where the wind blows stronger and the dangers are unknown
Hey hey sentry, would you let me in your kingdom where the road gets tougher and from where there might be no return

I want to find out about the secret mechanism that can make it all go right or all go wrong.
I will get to the core and look with my right eye and my left one wide open.


Hey sentry, would you let me in your kingdom where the wind blows stronger and the dangers are unknown
Hey hey sentry, would you let me in your kingdom where the road gets tougher and from where there might be no return.
No return.
Track Name: And in the evening
And in the evening
I am left with the many thoughts I had at day

I choose between the good
and the bad ones
I put them away till they are something else

And I can be one
With the night and her black silhouettes
I can be one with the night
And with her windy sea

Hey, lost and not for fun
that stone splintered the windowpane
should I go back and start it all again
