Questions 02:57
Is truth imperfect? Yes, but imperfection is truth. Do you agree that desire is the desire of the other? Yes, we all learn how and what to desire. Do the limits of my language set the limits of my world? No. Can science ever explain the evolution of human psyche? No, not after Lacan. And now, my eyes fix yours To stir our doubts with Something impure Is death one of the many tragedies that compartmentalises the great comedy? Yes. Was there a time before Caesar and plastics? Yes, but long ago. In a world of contingency, how can we prove that a particular attitude is correct? Sorry, I have nothing to say about ethics. Does human desire have a dialectical structure? Yes. What is the use of pleasure? I am not sure. Bitmeyen şişede çırpınan fikirler (In a bottomless bottle - fluttering thoughts,) Sorular, hayaller (Questions, dreams) Ellerimiz kavuşur (We hold hands) Sinsi bir günah (A furtive sin) Akar damarlarımızdan (Creeps through our vein.)

about

In anticipation of Kit Sebastian's forthcoming second album in 2021, the duo have delved into their archives to present a special digital single release. Think of this as not necessarily a taster of what's to come, but more as a starter that refreshes the appetite for the next course.

'Rain (باران)' was the second track recorded in their analogue studio, and because of this, it has a slightly more primitive rudimentary sound. It was written more or less to test the studio and to learn what sounded good and didn't. It was a hot French hazy July day which you can hear translated into the sound of the track. The version on this EP has been re-sung to include Merve’s vocals.

'Questions' was written and recorded for the duo's short film 'C'est Quoi Le Mantra Moderne'. It was intended for a scene that they would later abandon: a summer night, sitting in an old-fashioned café in Le Grand-Pressigny, where they ask each other one question after another without any clear answers. Given the limited amount of film they had, this idea felt risky which meant they couldn't release the track with the film. Yet, it can still be enjoyed on its own and hopefully, still, enrich the experience of their visual essay and bring a new layer to it.

We hope you enjoy this further excursion into the world of Kit Sebastian, and big thanks to the duo for rescuing 'Questions' from the cutting room floor for us all to savour.
