about

GADADU’s new single, dosaardvark, oscillates between the uncanny, close-miked ambience of the twin peaks night club and ritualistic, cathedral-esque orchestrations.

Musically, dosaardvark is best described as a jazz trio piano concerto. Instruments and voices rise and fall through the song’s rhapsodic form, interwoven with a handful of recurring motifs.

The lyrics are a meditation on the mystic biblical passage, "I am that I am."

lyrics

I
I
I
I am that I am
That I
I am that I
I am
I am death at sight
sky scorched white
Make amends
I am that I am, that I am
I am that I am, that I am
I am that I am, that I am
I am that I am not
LET GO
I am here
I am that I AM YOU
GOD'S AMONG YOU
GOD'S AMONG YOU
GOD'S AMONG YOU
GOD'S AMONG YOU
