We are glad to share with you today one of the most listened to songs during the design process or our Nautilus Collection. Its title says it all!
Who are Missio?
Missio is an American pop rock duo formed in 2016 in Austin (Texas, U.S.A.). Its name comes from the Latin word for “mission”, which is significant for Missio’s founder because it is a reminder of a time when he was recovering from an addiction. In fact, he has this word tattooed on one of his arms.
Bottom of the deep blue sea
An excerpt of the lyrics:
The berth surrounding my body crushing every bit of bone
The salt, it seeps in through the pores of my open skin
I wait on you inside the bottom of the deep blue sea
I wait on you inside the bottom of the deep blue
Without further ado, here the video of an outstanding acoustic version of this song:
Our choice this time is ‘Drawing up a storm’, the song (and album) created from scratch by Paulina Cassidy.
As the singular lyrics go:
it’s in the shadows of the waves
they’re pulling me away
it’s in this night so warm
i’m drawing up a storm

A micro-interview with Paulina Cassidy
Can you think of anyone better than the songcrafter herself to tell you about her own world? Neither do we and this is why we are thrilled to bring you a micro-interview with her. Let’s go!
Jonathan Hultén is not a newcomer to the world of music. Talented composer, guitar player and singer, he launched his acoustic solo project with the release of a debut single, Nightly Sun, las year.
Jonathan is a wanderer of the dark side. Member of bands like Tribulation or Stench, his creative endeavours are almost endless (did we say that he is a cult-illustrator too?). So we are glad to bring you today the video of his new song, ‘Anguished are the young’, (with the collaboration of our dear friend Viveka Goyanes, who you will surely remember from this collaboration project with the Decimononic crew: ‘Amoelbarroco, Decimononic and… fortune-telling?’).
Sit back, relax and enjoy:
Darkher is the alias of Jayn H. Wissenberg, a West Yorkshire-based singer-songwriter. Let us quote Metal Temple in order to introduce you to Darkher:
‘Her work weaves Gothic themes and eery atmosphere around a base of dark ambiance. It is hard to pick out individual notions between the mix of entrancement, sadness, introspection and soul-searching curiosity that washes over you’.
‘Ghosts tears’ is the first track of her first ep, ‘The Kingdom Field’. Singular music, isn’t it?
The Circuncelion project began with Igor Mesmer in the spring of 2004, as a side project to his band Addiction. This Basque artist wanted to distance himself from the more conventional musical lenguange in order to develop what he called ‘sound visions’. Eschara was the result, a conceptual work based on his own impression arising from a number of images and testimonies from the Spanish civil war, forming a work of 9 instrumental symphonic arrangements.
Circuncelion’s second album, Carved In Waters, was released in 2010 featuring not only Igor, but also artist and classical pianist Romina Perez. Begotten Forgotten, the third album of the band, is a true masterpiece. 46 minutes of enchanment, melancholy and haunting beauty. ‘To one dead’ is just one example of this, demonstrating that Circuncelion’s music is comparable to the compositions of many of the most prestigious darkwave and ethereal groups.
