It's a happy coincidence that all the major and minor battles that have recently been fought in our house seem to have dissolved into airy harmony right now. Leo is here, Keff is away, Till is in full possession of his mental and physical powers. All that allows us to celebrate the release of fæːlɐ extensively. You could feel last night that we all had some catching up to do for companionable gatherings. It got loud and wild - even Hans was almost boisterous by his standards, surprising us with some pretty impressive beatbox skills after a few glasses of whiskey. He was also the only one still bursting with energy when everyone else had already curled up tired and drunk in their sleeping bags.
As a result, the breakfast table was not set until early afternoon today. Till had baked gingerbread and there was spiced punch and roasted apples. Everything was decorated with Jin's handicrafts, small Christmas objects she had made out of old crown caps, wood scraps and colorful glass shards. Somehow that also goes well with fæːlɐ. For somebody it was only junk, but in our house it now creates the most beautiful Christmas atmosphere.
Looking for suitable music, we realized that there is not a lot of tasteful Christmas music we like. But we could think of many songs that create a Christmas mood, even though they may not have been written specifically for that purpose. Maybe even fæːlɐ could be counted among them. A song about seeing the good and beauty in all our mistakes. And the strings and bells also fit well into the end-of-year mood.
That's why we came up with an idea: it has almost become a small tradition that we build a playlist around our new song together with all of you. And for fæːlɐ we are looking for songs that create a Christmas mood without being obvious Christmas songs. Do you know what we mean? In our Instagram Story we will share a few examples for inspiration. We are looking forward to your suggestions.
