You’ve got a story for them The cost is not discussed And nothing ever changes among spinning tops Your words are loud and cautious Their claps are firm and synchronised For all the favors and candid balls For the trade-ins and leading on to the unknown for leading on Don’t spill it all, be careful Just keep it calm and improvise cos you’re the savior their number one Like all the faded that led us on to the unknown They led us on to the uknown Lead us on
2.
Unveil 04:42
Who are these people the whispering around us Carefully chosen laughs and distortions of mistrust But I'm so happy It's your radiance so new Just keep our truth and I’ll keep our truth Let's go home and I'll hold you while the colors flare Let's go alone, slow and I'll watch you while you bash the walls and shades until your fears have lost their names I’ll watch you I’ll watch you watch you I’ll watch you unveil Who are these people while they look into my eyes Be my rainy cloud 'cos I’ll burn otherwise I like the way your nose wiggles when you talk So just talk and talk and talk and talk and read my mind again
3.
Knot 02:51
Showing me parts of your soul Smiling from hiding spots Somewhere I would ease my mind but not where you stand where you stand where you stand Throwing me words in a knot Blooming in hazy talks But I found an awful lot in just one drop that you let slide that you let slide that you let slide down I underlay you when 500 deer were running like mad Stunning, I guess Just clench tomorrows There's no one to blame Don't be afraid Those are just echoes bringing the same bringing the same the same
4.
Never speak Never speak again to me We'll never click so never speak again to me My lover, you could’ve told me Now you can't stop me You could’ve told me Now you can't stop me Different times Different times for ones who try Truth or lie never mind It doesn’t apply to us My lover, you could’ve told me Now you can't stop me Could’ve told me Now you can’t stop me (Hmmm) Ponder less now Rush and stress out I know it’s not your fault, no Know it’s not your fault, no It all makes sense now That was not a letdown cos there’s no time for a letdown There’s no time for a letdown There’s no time for a letdown There’s no time for a letdown

Egret presents debut EP "Silent Turns"

Serbian musician and producer Petar Pupić, who performs as Egret, presents his debut 4-song EP "Silent Turns", available on all digital platforms, bandcamp and YouTube.

Five years have gone since the release of the first single "Knot", which brought Egret the first prize at the regional competition for singer-songwriters "Poezika" in Novi Sad. Since then, Egret released another song "My Isle", played a few times - as support for Peter Broderick and Sara Renar, and also solo (Kino Šiška Ljubljana, Kontakt Showcase Beograd, Sofar session). He also worked as a producer, music author, arranger and instrumentalist on albums and songs for other musicians, in collaboration with producer Milan Bjelica (Buč Kesidi, Ljubičice, Iva Lorens).

Who exactly is Petar Pupić?

Some would say - one of the most gifted musicians and producers of the generation, a graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, a singer who delighted Peter Broderick during his performance in Belgrade, someone whose music carries a different flow of energy... Petar is all that, but also none of that. For many, he is just a secret that we will now try to reveal.

Egret's EP "Silent Turns" seems like a re-discovered private press album from the seventies and eighties. Both ancient and modern, with delicate layers of sound, emotions and decades. Imagine the worlds of Sufjan Stevens, James Blake, Nick Drake and Chet Baker overlapping in one point, one city, one person.

The opening "A Story For Them" sets the stage, describing eternal human obsession with leaders, and the violin (guest Mirjana Nešković) and ingenious arrangement solutions seem to lead us on a journey into the unknown. "Unveil" is the moment when you fall in love at first
sight and realize that love can be both a refuge and an escapism from anxiety and social interactions. "Knot" got a definitive shape, powerful and hypnotic, with Egret's "wall of sound" vocals in the chorus. The last song on the EP, "No Time For a Letdown" is an anthem
of resentment, disappointment and uneasy acceptance of new, accelerated dynamics and endings of relationships between people. But every end can be a new beginning, and this album is more about beginnings than endings.

Egret predstavlja debitantski EP "Silent Turns"

Pančevački muzičar i producent Petar Pupić, koji nastupa kao Egret, predstavlja svoj debitantski EP "Silent Turns" sa 4 pesme, koji je dostupan na svim digitalnim platformama, bandcamp-u i YouTube-u.

Pet godina je prošlo od izlaska prvog singla "Knot", koji je Egretu doneo prvo mesto na regionalnom konkursu za kantautore "Poezika" u Novom Sadu. Od tada do danas, Egret je objavio još jednu pesmu "My Isle", svirao nekoliko puta, kao podrška Peteru Brodericku i Sari Renar, a i solo (Kino Šiška Ljubljana, Kontakt Beograd, Sofar session). U međuvremenu, kao producent, autor muzike, aranžer i instrumentalista, radio je na albumima i pesmama za druge muzičare, u saradnji sa Milanom Bjelicom (Buč Kesidi, Ljubičice, Iva Lorens). Ko je tačno Petar Pupić? Neko bi rekao – jedan od najdarovitijih muzičara i producenata generacije, diplomac Berklee College of Music u Bostonu, pevač koji je oduševio Petera Brodericka tokom svog nastupa u Beogradu, neko čija muzika nosi drugačije strujanje energije… Petar je sve to, ali i ništa od toga, za mnoge je samo tajna koju ćemo sada pokušati da razotkrijemo još nekim slušaocima.

Egretov EP "Silent Turns" je kao neki ponovo otkriveni private press album iz sedamdesetih i osamdesetih. U isto vreme i starinski i moderan, sa slojevima zvuka, emocija i decenija. Zamislite svetove Sufjana Stevensa, Jamesa Blakea, Nicka Drakea, Chet Bakera, koji se preklapaju u jednoj tački, u jednom gradu, u jednoj osobi.

Uvodna "A Story For Them" postavlja scenu, govori o večnoj ljudskoj opsesiji liderima, a violina (gošća Mirjana Nešković) i genijalna aranžmanska rešenja kao da nas vode na put u nepoznato. "Unveil" je trenutak u kojem se zaljubite na prvi pogled i shvatate da ljubav može biti i utočište i neka vrsta eskapizma od anksioznosti i socijalnih interakcija. "Knot" je dobio svoj definitivni oblik, moćan i hipnotišući, sa egretovskim "wall of sound" vokalima na refrenu. Poslednja pesma je "No Time For a Letdown" - himna ogorčenosti, razočaranja i nelagodnog prihvatanja novih, ubrzanih dinamika i krajeva odnosa izmedju ljudi. Ali, svaki kraj može da bude i novi početak, a ovaj album je više o počecima, nego o krajevima.
