about

Heart of Desire, which will be released on July 18, 2017, is FAZI's third full-length studio album.

The recording process for this album was quite special; the band prefers to call it a "project" rather than an "album". Heart of Desire is a record from the road: during the 2016 release tour for FAZI's second album, The Root of Innocence, the band selected five cities on their 43-city tour schedule in which to record the tracks featured here. Performing at livehouses across China by night, working on the new album material by day, FAZI spent four months putting together Heart of Desire, laying down the material at makeshift recording studios in Taipei, Xiamen, Dalian, Wuhan, and Xi'an. The band also invited five very different musicians to collaborate on the process, resulting in this distinctive new album.

The theme of Heart of Desire is time; compared with FAZI's previous releases, it's not the beat itself, but the entire musical atmosphere that is pulled and stretched wide, like a heart doing everything it can to bring back distant memories, or like the sensation of a deep dive underwater. Desire, lies, love and hate, tolerance, memory and forgetting — these are the themes presented on the album. Like FAZI's previous material, these songs are "the youngest songs from the rest of life," — their blunt directness has not faded one bit.

FAZI's music hopes to bring you back to life. They've arranged thick and deep, graceful, velvety sounds to adorn this album, pairing emotionally moving vocals with rolling rhythms that rush from the heart of stirring melodies. Their unique ability is to give their audience a sensation of being able to instantly hear the intimate traces of private life. But it is not about selfishness or solipsistic reverie, but rather creating a larger self-image within, drawing you into their own lives and sharing their experiences with the listener.

In the end, Heart of Desire is a record that responds to the flow of time, holding fast to the first appearance of life. Desire is both the arrow and the target, moving back and forth between the two; time gives every fantasy substance in an unending stream, and in the distance delivers an unending flow of flourishing prosperity.

不需要明白
只用聆听
每天对着镜子
都是一样的脸
记录自己故事

不需要怀疑
只用继续
这是新的开始
沉默带走恐惧
时间遗忘自己

看沧海一粟我们只是过客
不会成为任何的附属
没有什么比这感觉更好
我们创造属于自己的美妙

看沧海一粟我们只是过客
不会成为任何的附属
没有什么比这感觉更好
我们创造属于内心的美妙
Track Name: Heart of Desire
不停跑别回头
欲望追在身后
不停追别停下
伤口也是匕首

不停跑别回头
欲望追在身后
好奇是死的入口
不停追别停下
伤口也是匕首
欲望是停的理由

不停跑别停下
不停跑别停下
不停 
欲望之心是死的理由
欲望之心 
欲望之心
欲望之心
欲望之心

终于到了世界另一边
可你在哪里?   你在哪里?
透过风告诉我 
穿过时间
才是答案
终于到了时间另一边
可你在哪里?   你在哪里?
透过风触摸
一闪而过
只是幻象

一闪而过的地方
瞬间回忆变幻想
一闪而过的地方
瞬间回忆变幻象
一闪而过
马养
瞬间回忆变幻想
一闪而过
马养
瞬间回忆变幻象
Track Name: Beautiful Noise
天空出现太阳
但这不是希望
闭上眼
感受光亮
现在过的就是
余生最年轻的一天
余生中
最美妙的一天

梦境自溺的遗忘
改变冒险的方向
人生就像太阳总有起伏
别忘了还有驱散不了的雾
Track Name: Lies in Lies
是否 用谎言才能把你的谎言撕碎
露出圣洁的脸
是否 用谎言才能填补你破碎的脸
谎言中谎言
此刻你不能进入
不能进入他人的身体
随心所欲
此刻你不能主宰
不能主宰他人的生活
永远不是你的
是否 用谎言才能把你的谎言撕碎
露出圣洁的脸
是否 用谎言才能填补你破碎的脸
谎言中谎言
 
时间之水将我们淹没 
爱就是
就是谎言中谎言
心脏充满了悲伤的血液
感觉离自由越来越远
Track Name: Sounds From Somewhere
纯净自内心
自然并崇敬
多想拥抱你
风景已逝去
是否被驯服
才能变幸福
多想拥抱你
风景已逝去

一阵浪把所有打翻  怪力乱神
吉光片羽 保卫的人
一阵浪把所有打翻  怪力乱神
吉光片羽 保卫陌生的人

他愿陪你说话
也陪你沉默
发生的事在梦里出现过
过不了多久
变得陌生
永远不变和你看过的风景

把恨吃掉
去把恨吃掉
不属于你的
悲欢离合
把恨吃掉
去把恨吃掉
他说
这不是你的

去把恨吃掉
发生的事在梦里出现过
去把恨吃掉
永远不变和你看过的风景

把恨吃掉
去把恨吃掉
不属于你的
悲欢离合
把恨吃掉
去把恨吃掉
他说
这不是你的

把恨吃掉 你把恨吃掉
把恨吃掉 去把恨吃掉
把恨吃掉 去把恨吃掉
他说
这不是你的
