about

'Today Is Tomorrow' is a mistranslation of the name of an Amazonian shaman with a pyramid-shaped head whose name could also mean 'The End of Time'. It is an imaginary band crafted by sole member Adham Zidan (The Invisible Hands, Procession Towards The Unknown) to flesh out arrangements to his songs.

Recorded in two decrepit homes across Cairo with minimal equipment, 'What's To Want' is the soundtrack to a battle between escapism and elevation. Musically influenced by the timeless melodies of the great European composers, the rhythm of Tropicalia, and the song-forms of that moment before psych turned to prog, it is an alchemical suite where the city is vacated of all its inhabitants and filled with the quiet air of the forest at dawn.

Recommended if you like: Syd Barrett, Brian Eno, Broadcast, Chico Buarque, Mike Oldfield.

Track Name: Renege/Rat Race
Much too much going on here
You can't recall
How it feels the first time before you fall
Can't you recall how it feels before you fall

I want to be a part of you, but I can't

Much too much going on here
I can't even tell
Nothing for some or something for nobody else
Can't you try and tell what it is - a game, a tired conquest
Track Name: May Day
I'd rather be a monkey
Climbing up the trees
With no worries in my head
But on which banana I will feed

I'd rather be a giraffe
And hang out with the little clouds
Then the city will not bother me
No matter how big or no matter how loud

Rise up to the sky and meet/greet the sun
Wait around for the moon to swoon

I'd rather be a wolf
Hikikomori? Hikikomori.
But I think I'd go quite mad
With no friends to watch the show

I'd rather be a turtle
With my home right there on my back
Win the race anyway
Even though I'm really quite the slack

Rise up to the sky and meet/greet the sun
Wait around for the moon to swoon

I'd rather be a human
Like the ones that lived back when
I miss my mother nature
I'd die to see her again
I'd die
Track Name: Calvaire
Hey! Make a sound if you hear me..
Your senses are lost? Unify and come back again!

Because nothing ever changes, except you
And change is overdue
You know no-one's quite as eager for you to push that button

It'll all come crashing down
Level it with the ground
Maybe then, you'll be able to tell the lie from the lie
Track Name: IT
Lay your head on this pillow made of sand
And feast your eyes on the glory of the skies
Because everyone's there, and you - you're on another side
What's the difference? Isn't that it?

Water's flowing to end up where it once began
Start all over, thought an artifact
Animal saviors; deny yourself to yourself, what's that?
Is there a difference? Isn't that it?
Track Name: ABC
Don't you know, don’t you know, it's so easy to lie?
But didn't anybody tell you, the truth's got nowhere left to hide.
How low can you sink? How high must you be?
Before it all goes click, and you realize..

There's no need for worry
Everything you want is right here
There's no need for anything
Just reach out your arms and see
