about

Ola Kobak, formerly under the stage name Fulka, presents a new album named Metanoia. Building on the success of her debut album, The 'Mystery of The Seven Stars' in 2010, the songs follow her journey of changing one's mind. With flowing electronic beats, warm vocals and a tranquil Wurlitzer electronic piano, She sings about office life, heartbreak and yearning. Stripped from previous banjo's, strings and guitar, this musical direction is intimate, honest and organic without a glittering self-display.

Track Name: Flow
Lyrics:

I've had enough
I pull the plug
I want it to end
My heart airs out
The bitter scent
You left within

Like a stream
I flow on stones
Alone
I'm no longer your fountain
That supplies your wounds
An exit
Track Name: Home
Lyrics:

Warm. Safe. Home
Wild and Young
Proud. Secrets
Under the bed

When I sleep
When I dream
Every piece of living's never lost
Time to laugh
Time to weep
Every part of living's never lost

Run. Learn. Grow
Moving on
Fall. Dance. Mourn
Cold and Young

When I sleep
When I dream
Every piece of living's never lost
Time to laugh
Time to weep
Every part of living's never lost
Track Name: Flaws
Lyrics:

Between the sea and long white beach
We watch the moon
Large and low and the startled little waves that leap in
Fiery ringlets from their sleep

Laughs with so little cause
We arranged games out of straws
We would try and trace each other's faces
In the ashes
Free of each other's flaws

Driving past fields and fields of golden green
Where sunflowers mirror the sun's daily chase
From East to West
Where the wild birds leap between and
Till the yearning slips through our fingers
In a fire which a few discern
May we live and may we learn and
Will our tables ever ever turn

In the sun we count our heartbeat
Handstand apart
Facing the giant fee-faw-fum
Track Name: Skin
Lyrics:

This is goodbye
Low tide's out
This is access
An easy way out

Fallen under your skin

This is goodbye
High tide's in
Wind comes from South
Birds fly out

Forgive me as before
Track Name: He's on the run
Lyrics:

I'm a bit rough round the edges
Brother lost control
The record plays and on the staircase
Lies a tug of war
Father can escape, let's forget
To the lake we go
Mother's faking, I wish for her
A lavish youth once more
Father's begging on the floor
Plates are breaking 'gainst the door

Lover's dancing with their shadows
Lonesome days are gone
Your father met another woman
Now He's on the run
The kitchen table's full of battles
I'm hiding from one
Your father's lying on the mattress
Thinking 'bout what he's done
Track Name: Hotel
Lyrics:

Waking up to the ocean's song
Far from a home and a job I'm not fond of

Pull the sheet's down
Jump off the edge
Make a mess, no one cares
In the morning, there's housekeeping
And We'll do it all over again

Summer nights and bonfires in the rain
Feel the wind feather my hair in some stranger's cabriolet

Pull the sheet's down
Jump off the edge
Make a mess, no one cares
In the morning, there's housekeeping
And We'll do it all over again
Track Name: Japanese Office
Lyrics:

Cars and women
The highlife is sinking
The life with the office
It's all caving in

And I won't ever fake it
This moulded piece is gone
If I don't ever hate it
Then meet me at the bar

Caught red-handed in adult shops
Your secret's now public
One click and five shots
Track Name: My Beginning
Lyrics:

All the swimmers I salute to you
When I float I don't produce good fruit
I want a promise that life is boundless
My beginning's waking up with you
