Zero 7

I once loved to listen songs by this band ‘Zero 7‘ whose genre has been described as downtempo or ambient music. They have released 4 albums so far which I owned three of them. I really loved the first two albums which were ‘Simple Things’ and ‘When It Falls’. I loved that their music could take me to fly to the sky, swim in the ocean, or float away in the universe. Their lyrics also made me ponder about.

Who am I
To make a judgement of
Your life
I’m only
Passing by
Passing by

Passing By (When It Falls – 2004) –

The song that made me fall for them was ‘Destiny’ which its music video was so beautiful as well as the song.

When I’m weak, I draw strength from you
And when you’re lost, I know how to change your mood
And when I’m down, you breathe life over me
Even though we’re miles apart, we are each other’s destiny

I’ll fly, I’ll fly home
I’ll fly home and I’ll fly home

– Destiny (Simple Things – 2001) –

Even though I said that I liked the first two albums, but the third album was alright for my own taste as they seemed to use more acoustic sounds than the former two albums.

Cleaning up the things she left behind
Are you on to find some peace of mind
Are you aware of the mess you left behind

Scared to think away the cheer
Looking back in a mirror
It all becomes clear
The views are not the same
I see sun, you see rain

Cleaning up the mess you left behind

– Left Behind (The Garden – 2006)

After those three albums, I haven’t followed them until now that I found their official Facebook and I hoped that they will release their new album soon.

I’m looking forward to listening to their new songs.
