KARMAMOI
"The Day Is Done" story

We began writing "The Day Is Done" in January 2017 with the idea of ​​experimenting with new sounds and new compositional forms. After "Silence Between Sounds" we felt the need to take a new path but remaining faithful to our overall concept of music: Experimentation, Sound, Melody, Emotion.
Daniele Giovannoni: "I had in mind to write an album that talked about our times, that musically explored the rhythms and pains of everyday life, almost like a sort of self-psychoanalysis. I have always liked to stay informed, reading everything including a wide variety of books to news on the internet, and world events - big and small - are a huge influence of me."

When the Grenfell Tower fire in London took place on 14 June 2017 the writing of the album was already well advanced. 89 people died in the burning of that London skyscraper and among the many stories, we were deeply struck by that of two Syrian boys, Omar and Mohammed, who fled from Syria in the war, finding refuge and a new life in Britain. Mohammed died in the fire and his brother was unable to help him.

Daniele: "This typified my feeling of discomfort with the world. Many of us humans are on the run and living in fear of not being accepted. The two Syrian boys typified this feeling of unease. The terror in the eyes of the survivors of the fire was the same as that of the survivors of a bombing or an attack. Certainly those who suffer a such a bombing know that it is possible there will be another, while those who are victims of a fires can hope that such a thing will never to be repeated, but the desire to escape is the same for everyone."
We decided to tell the story of Omar and Mohammed as example of millions of other stories of life and pain, which led to the decision to give the album a concept. "The Day Is Done" is dedicated to them, to all the victims of the fire of the Grenfell Tower, to all the people fleeing from wars and hunger and to all the people looking for a normal, peaceful life.
Alex Massari: "We had to transform this fundamental idea into music and words, to create a perfect snapshot to allow those who will listen to our album, to enter the atmosphere we created and feel along with us, the desire for normality of those who are terrified."

It was January 2018 when we finished writing the music for album. Initially we had 14 songs and we chose 8 of them to enter into a collaboration with Sara Rinaldi, who wrote the final English lyrics. Living in different cities we found a way to compare ideas and to send demos to each other.

Daniele: "Sometimes the distances between us makes working more complex but I have to say that most of the time it stimulates the imagination. There is a deep analysis of everything we do that often leads us in new directions."

Alex Massari:" Daniele sends me the demos of the songs, I listen to them and we discuss them on Skype. Then I play my guitars, always looking for the heart of the song. I find it a very creative way of working. Obviously, without internet all this would not be possible, and in all probability Karmamoi would not exist, at least in this form."

The recordings began in Rome at the end of March 2018. We recorded the voices at the Latte Più studio owned by Gabriele Sorrentino. After playing at the Winter's End Festival, at the beginning of May 2018 we went to Eynsham near Oxford at the ARC At Abbey Street Studios for drum and guitar recording sessions. It was a wonderful experience. At the studio, Ted, David and the other staff allowed us to be focused and relaxed, letting the music flow spontaneously, without obstacles. Mark Tucker, our sound engineer and co-producer with us on the album, did the rest. Mark is incredible. Having already worked with us on "Silence Between Sounds" he knows perfectly exactly what we want. Mark is our sound creator, who transforms what we create into the sound of Karmamoi.

Daniele Giovannoni: "I met Mark a few years ago when I visited his studio to record the drums for a folk-rock singer. We immediately hit it off after, and after I gave him a demo, I suggested he work with us on the Karmamoi project and he accepted immediately. It was fantastic. To think - the sound engineer of Jethro Tull working with Karmamoi. Incredible."

" The Day Is Done" is a story that accompanies the listener through the lucid madness of a reality that we often do not want to see. It is a raw portrait, which via composition, sound and lyrics makes us aware of who we are and what we probably would not want to be. On "The Day Is Done" there are many great musicians as guests, among them Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree ) and Geoff Leigh (Steven Wilson, Ex-Wise Heads).

Daniele: "I met Colin last year at a drumming festival in Milan where he played with his band. We kept in touch and when I later asked him to play on the new Karmamoi album, he said 'yes', saying that he liked the project very much.”
At the time of writing, we have received the final mixes from Mark. When we listened to our finished work we did not hide our emotion. Now the album is ready to go to print. We are very eager to let you listen to it, in the hope that it will move you and excite you in the same way it does us. "The Day Is Done" will be released by "Sonicbond " and distributed by "Nova" via "Plastichead"

Alex: "' The Day Is Done ' is definitely the best album we've made so far”
Daniele:" I totally agree with Alex "

Track Name: The Day Is Done
THE DAY IS DONE

I am on my way 
I 'm heading Home 
I'll see you there 
I made some food 
Miss Erin show is
On Tonight
Come sit back 
Relax 
Enjoy yourself 
When the day is done 
Consider this  be in grace
We are safe in here 
I hear you man 
I am glad we came 
Go get some rest right now
Silent your mind
See you 
Tomorrow 
Blinking Light
Goes on and off
Seal the deal
I can't go wrong
Will i wash the image of you
My blood down the stairs
You Might in grace
The peace of we craved
By now I still live
You are Gone
You are gone
The best was yet to come
You left our land to burn in
Grenfell
Track Name: Take Me Home
Take Me Home


March has blossomed
15 days of light
Easy living 
Mother says it's all right 

Out of these walls
Hail the man in charge
Ain't no freedom
People cry from far 

Take me home
Run from all
Guns I'm not made for 
Gather all we need to go 

Hit the desert
Syria has left in and out
Moving forward 
Our new life to come 
Track Name: Portrait of a Man
PORTRAIT OF A MAN

Among those frames 
You sit so silently 
Before we said goodbye 
I drew some lines 
Do you know?
Do you Know?
The youth is cruel and flows
Smells of remorse
The youth is cruel and flows
The youth is Beauty and Flows
Neglect the remorse
The youth is beauty and flows 
Blossom on the throne!
Hysteria
The compass in my bones
Has slit 
May we climb the wall of
Misery 
Every time we fail 
To cope alone 
Gimme gimme a thought 
To get through the day 
Gimme a little thought right now 
Take me take me take me
Around for a ride 
Take me for a ride at night
Ethereal 
like atoms that collide We'd be 
But we're caught up in waters
Material grief takes us apart 
What we are given
affects But
What we have chosen 
define
Fertile persistence 
Save us 
The wise man whispers 
The youth is cruel and flows
Smells of remorse
The youth is cruel and flows
The youth is Beauty and Flows
Neglect (slights )the remorse
The youth is beauty and flows 
Track Name: Running Through The Lands
RUNNING THROUGH THE LANDS

Lead us in prayers 
Your spirit says 
May/the odds be/are in our/your favour (the odds are in our favour)

Blu dusk 
Smell the day 
Easy 

Flashing leds 
The radio cut out 
Drag this man to the safest way down 
Through the lands this soul
Knock the harrows over 

Blu desks 
Feel the day 
Track Name: Your Name
YOUR NAME

Say your name
On 3 ready 
Stay with me 
Clear 
Pressure gauge
Need him stable 
Stay with me 
Clear 
Nowhere to run 
Clouds pouring out 
Some Fuel from above then
Fire on the walls 
(Just like )
Hell on the earth 
Your name your name ...
Hands off him 
No bit here
All of you 
stand clear 
You do not know the life you ain't lived 
You cannot talk the choice you ain't taken
Track Name: Mother's Dirge
Mother's Dirge


Now you go
Birds fly over the sky
Soul that soar
Gliding on the wind 
DRY
LIGHT 
All we live 
Find its end in decay
Endless Roads
Worth the ride
To the humble heart 
We cry our dear once when they're gone 
We let the quarrels break the bond
We hold them back on what the want
No mending 
Recoil your hand before it cuts 
Bind up your mouth and it won't hurt 
Appraise (sort out) what counts and 
Let the grace arouse within 
Let the grace arouse within 
Let the grace arouse in you 
in you 
Like a horse 
running free through the land 
Safe and warm 
I shall see you again 
Speaking 
80 eyes have seen their end 
That cruel damned night the fire swelled 
80 mouths have cried unheard 
That cruel damned night the fire swelled 
80 hands have raised uncatched 
That cruel damned night the fire swelled 
80 feet have run to death 
That cruel damned night the fire swelled
