about

ENGLISH ///
2014. After touring through France, from a nice confortable flat in Grenoble to a decayed abandoned factory in Caen, Malhabile brings his second EP "Clench your teeth".

This raw and luminous songwriter reveals his love for incandescent melodies that suggest, question and reassure. Malhabile succeeds ,with a disarming sincerity, to cut space and time. "Clench your teeth" is one of those records you'll get back to. Naturally.

FRENCH ///
2014. Après une tournée qui l'a emmené aux quatre coins de l'Hexagone, du confort délicat d'un appartement isérois aux installations délicieusement archaïques d'un squat caennais, Malhabile est de retour avec "Clench Your Teeth", son deuxième EP.

Songwriter rugueux et néanmoins lumineux, cet Avignonnais d'adoption dévoile ici l'écrin rêvé pour son amour des mélodies incandescentes qui donnent à penser. Qui questionnent. Qui rassurent. Malgré son passif de gros dur, qui lui a permis de cogner les fûts et cisailler les cordes d'une demi-douzaine de groupes inexorablement bruyants, Malhabile parvient, avec un naturel désarmant, à découper en fines lamelles toute notion d'espace et de temps. "Clench Your Teeth" fait partie de ces disques folk dont on s'éprend.

Track Name: Paint it
Call me liar
Time goes by as we stare
I feel (that) the earth is falling
Falling down on my chest
Crossing this river
The colors and the shades
Whispered to me to stay
In the ground, in my grave yeah yeah…

Dash away; come again straight away through the fields
Broken bones, sticky bin, clean your thoughts, have a seat
Built a boat, kill your friends sail away on the seas
Stupid I, deserve?

Talking circles
Blew me on the trees
Skin turns dirty
To feel like the engraved ones
Beheaded angels
Sang choruses in the dark
And me and my poor verses
Try to make work it out out out…

I will draw a picture of her, sitting on the bridge, below the river
Can we find out our innocence and realize we’re the luckiest ones?
Track Name: Open the skies
This slow move you had when the scorn surfaced, your contempt
The hours I spent to translate your words that still don't make sense
Finally I learned how not to smile To not seem too weak
If I went out of fear would you apologize? Are you too blind to see me ?

Tears & lies open the skies above you
As a surprise, I still feel hatred over you

So I tried to speak a word but nothing came out and scratched my nails
I locked myself into silence as long as I could. Who really cared ?
Waited for better days from dusk till dawn, if I could sleep away...
My hand still shake, but I clench my fist.
You don't mean shit to me now.

Tears & lies open the skies above you
As a surprise, I still feel hatred over you
Come on show your face, come on show me how you do
Track Name: Sorry, I won't excuse
Breaking out into abuse and I wish you could have seen how I fought against the night. That was torturing me.
Loneliness and lazyness has finally disappeared.
When my body says "I can't", my mind screams to me that I can.

Don't scratch the stitches.
You've been answered.
Restore the memories and face yourself.

Laid back in your car and I hope you could have felt why I didn't dare to ask why your light don't shine on me.
Simplicity taught me : never say die.
So I'll run and won't be back but I'll still make you remember that

Don't scratch the stitches.
You've been answered.
Restore the memories and face yourself.

Please, don't scratch the stitches.
Damn, you've been answered.
Restore the memories and face yourself.
