about

Shortly before the release of 2013’s A New Start, Fjer was boarding in a Brooklyn brownstone owned by a 90-year old woman. It was there that she became inspired to build a floor by floor portrait of a home and the stories of chaos, love and loss contained within the walls.

Beyond producing her own work, Fjer further sets herself apart from her electro-soul contemporaries by building the foundation of the record atop emotive piano & string ballads to go with the booming retro-flavored 808s and modern chill-wave soundscapes. Sampling a plethora of household sounds and noises, Beautiful Home draws you into its atmospheric narrative the second you press play. The artistic growth on display from her first release is fully on display here.

Track Name: Beautiful Home
Beautiful Home
By Fjer

The door cracks every time you get in
And the floor has disappeared
Looks like the storm took everything
But you already gave it all up

The story is still untold
And I wonder how it got this far
Since you left

You lived in such a beautiful home
Now I wonder if I ever should have come there
You lived in such a beautiful home
Now it's all gone

You cried for several days
When you put it up for sale
Now someone else is gonna live here
And your regrets are standing in line

It’s too late to realize your mistakes
It’s too late to realize your mistakes
Mistakes you made

You lived in such a beautiful home
Now I wonder if I ever should have come there
You lived in such a beautiful home
Now it's all gone

Track Name: Floors
Floors
By Fjer

Traumatic, erratic
Stomping on my old hardwood floors
Voices and choices
That are made in agony and doubt

Winter and splinters
In my feet as I try to run
D-minor and fire
In the fireplace you build last year

You set fire to my floors

Traumatic, erratic
Stomping on my old hardwood floors
Fighting and dividing
All the photographs we did collect
In cities and buildings we’ve seen
Now the memories are covered in gasoline

You set fire to my floors

Save me from this place we call our home

Track Name: Children
Fjer - "Chilren"

Years after riding the roller coaster that was you and me
I still sometimes look back and I see the child in me.

A woman in love with a child
Like day and night - the sun is bound to go down
You pushed me in the lake, you made me scream
In the bitter end, I will drown.

Like children on a playground,
We run around. Run around.
To do it all again.

Deep down in the core of me, I can still feel the pain.
Do you remember when I fell - tall as I was?
Broke my hand and bent my ribs.
They have been crooked ever since.

A woman in love with a child
Like day and night - the sun is bound to go down
You pushed me in the lake, you made me scream
In the bitter end, I will drown.

Like children on a playground,
We run around. Run around.
To do it all again.

Track Name: Stairs
Stairs
By Fjer

He climbs the stairs when I'm not there
Forcing my heartbeat to race
My hands get clammy and my grip is getting tighter

One year of my life slips away when I worry
He reached the top of the stairs when I didn’t look

I get so flustered when I watch
I try my hardest not to budge
But just the thought of me without him hurts my heart

I tried my best to make him stay
I even tripped him down the stairs
But his imagination still runs wild to this day

I get so scared that he might find
His way into my mind
So I must build these stairs to keep him from ever getting there

Don’t walk here anymore
No, don’t climb these stairs
Don’t go there
Don’t walk here anymore
No, don’t climb these stairs
To nowhere

It took me years to get to here
And I won’t walk backwards again
I might fall down the stairs and then be forced to stay there

It’s time I faced the music
Not rely on my amusement
Used to be my life in tune
And I could choose it
Before he used it

The sound of breaking down the stairs is bound to fill my ears
Sooner or later
So I’ll just wait there

Track Name: Roof
Roof
By Fjer

Another night upon the roof
It’s where I’m seeking solitude
(I) know every tile and every dint
And all the sins that lie within

The roof has always been the lid
Holding our sins and secrets
Inside the pot that is our home
Containing everything we own

The air is cold and crystal clear
The frost is melting into tears
This view was everything to me
More than the eye could ever see
Now I am wondering why I’m here
Doubting myself with every tear
I want to know what I can be
(But) It’s more than I could ever see

The roof was where I saw it all
I’m never gonna take the fall
