Andrew Hamlet Aliceissleeping is an amazing band and this effort showcases the diverse musical range they offer. Alice Dionis has a vocal style that is unique and stands high above the rest. The band is musically on point and clearly as talented as they come. Completely Fine is a fantastic debut LP from a group that has barely spread their wings. Aliceissleeping is definitely a band to follow! Favorite track: Scary Mary.

Outsiders 06:20
OUTSIDERS Standing in line to be chosen Kids are worked up But I’m frozen In this journey we survive We chase light as darkness follows And emptiness defines The rock where we’ll meet It talks to me No use to hide It grabs me whole From the other side In the deepest realms of no conscience Humanity still thrives You stand so proud Struggle all forgotten Come, you gonna have fun You gonna be one of us You’re not alone Calm, you gotta stay calm Join the wannabes You won’t be seen Ride with me in this crazy To keep a dream on And dare to be free It takes time, it’s hard It takes time, all of your time

Felix 04:03
FELIX Today Felix is happy Happily he’s drinking a gin.. yeah He’s got a real good plan He came tickets in hand What a beautiful scene He captured everything, yeah You love’em, set them free But it tastes so bitter! In the dark, creeping in Is the hand of freedom Today Felix is empty Blame it on/take it on me, yeah Got used to that little pain chain Memory lane again What a beautiful scene He’ll take you home in small bits You love’em, take’em in Babe, it tastes of glitter In the dark creeping in Is the hand of freedom Fiercely resisting temptation Daily obsessing on you.. yeah “It gives me a real good buzz.. dreaming of you” “In a curtain of sweet lights I dream to roll down with you In a curtain of sweet lights I dream to roll down with you”

OVER AND OVER AGAIN I didn’t see it coming It got so messed up Your hair was thrown all over Your hands were locked tight Locked so tight You crushed what’s in my chest The heart was pounding faster You were as strong as thunder You made me part of you, I’m part of you I felt the rush inside, over and over again The rush inside, over and over again! Oh, can’t you see my bruises? My soul is sore inside I never dreamt of falling My body can’t decide, can’t decide! You crushed what’s in my chest And it’ll be your heart And in the end we’re coming You make me feel alive, I feel alive I felt the rush inside, over and over again The rush inside, over and over again! C'mon dive with me, dream with me C'mon ride with me, Don't stop!

Twilight 04:35
TWILIGHT Sweet black dove Darkness in your heart Faded souls Forever apart Tea-lights burning as night unveils Such a tease for my mind games I want light I want love Twilight's coming I am ready dear Craving beasts Have no fear Dried out hope A weak rose stem We combust And turn to dust I want light I want love Hear me the future’s now Hear me the sound is loud You know sometimes At night.. It gets lonely

Alien 03:05
ALIEN This town it’s like a cubicle It’s like a madhouse, it’s suicide So dirty inside So filthy outside I think I’m drowning Yeah, I’m sinking in Well, I fit right in Call me call me call me an alien You know the sun is brighter on the other side Call me call me call me an alien You know the sun it’s always bright And it’s all right.. Ah! Distorted, polluted, in darkness, in solitude So filthy outside So empty inside I think I’m drowning Yes, I’m sinking in Well, I think I’m fitting right in Because I’m dirty, I’m dirty as you are Well, I think I’m fitting right in Because I’m dirty Call me an alien, call me again!

Not Cool 03:41
NOT COOL Here I come along again, Won’t you be more happy with your own friends? Here I come staring at your dress When I’m older I’ll be nice I guess I’ll be nice, I’ll be smart, I will be all that you are I’ll be cool, I’ll be hot, I will be exactly what you are I’m not cool to be with you Here I come trying to blend in, I tried so hard to grow out of my skin And when I found I was done and good I found myself around some child-like dudes I’m not cool to be with you I’ll be nice, I’ll be smart, I will be all that you are I’ll be cool, I’ll be hot, I will be exactly what you are I’m not cool! Not cool! What’s the music you’re into? It’s on MTV and it does sound good My mixtape got on eMule I don’t own CDs but I got YouTube I’m not cool.. not cool.. Not cool to be with you Yeah yeah yeah

NEGOTIATING SEX I saw her, I liked her You know how it goes I saw him I liked him You know how it flows Went under my skin A drill in the head I had to have her A poke in the heart My highway to sin I had to have him Because it was a girl I thought it won’t count Because it was a boy I thought it won’t count Throw the first stone! C’mon go ahead and do what you do, babe Those feelings, I knew’ em I’ve met ’em before Those voices, so loud now Make everything blow She did it, don’t blame me He did it, don’t blame me And if my world should fall Come and watch me while I burn Can't you hear my call Because I’m screaming You shattered all my senses Just one taste and I’ll be gone Tell me that you want me And I would crumble Tell me that you want me Say it!

Lost Girls 04:28
LOST GIRLS Sometimes it’s just so over She always comes around Emotions are so dangerous.. so real Was the hell you chose much better than the hell we made? Why did I take it? Why did you, then? We got so close that we got burned It got so complicated, I’ve gone astray I’ve gone too wild and I got burned Lost Girl She’s lying down and waiting She did for years Qualities are just necessities It’s hard.. hard times Was the silence I wove so loud? I can’t find my mouth Was the trap I’ve made so suffocating? Or just explosion in the making Why did I take it? Why did you, then? We got so close and we got burned It got too complicated, I’ve gone astray I’ve gone too wild and I got burned It got too complicated, I’ve gone astray I’ve gone too wild and I got burned You’ve gone too wild and you got burned We’ve gone too wild and we got burned Lost Girls

COMPLETELY FINE - ALBUM NOTES




Is everything perfectly fine? Tell me.. is it really? There’s no escape from doubt.
What keeps you awake in the dark, when you are alone with your head?
If you look closer, reality has cracks in the paint that crumble at the whim of the wind.
But no, please, believe me -- everything is completely fine.

‘Completely fine’ is the first full length from Aliceissleeping, and it was recorded in London (UK) between August 2019 and July 2020. The 9 songs in the album are very emotionally charged, some are heavy, some are hypnotic and some are quite dark. Many things happened in conjunction with the recording: a sudden bereavement and then the pandemic struck, creating an intense context in which the band has worked in these months.

There are a lot of strong feelings expressed in the album: there are frustration and alienation coming from society imbalances and its preconstructed cages. There are echoes of silence, noise, loneliness, colours and blackness, contradictions, beauty, urges and nightmares. The cover artwork was created by Federico Salis, a talented artist from Sardinia (Italy) that was purposely chosen for his extremely bold style.

‘Completely Fine’ is the fruit of a lot of passion and effort, there was a lot of research in the sounds and arrangements, but it’s also quite instinctive, crude and true.

It is an album from outsiders to outsiders. When you are tired of reworking yourself as an efficient and functional adult in a world of facade, you might find your voice in Aliceissleeping.
