The snapshot

Slowmo is many things: a song, a statement and a weird moment. It is the work of three friends and a broad hint. Our world has increased tremendously in speed especially in the last years. Consciously and unconsciously we jump on this train, getting faster and faster, again and again. Some of us have been riding it for years, looking for the right stop. We are on the move, we network, we start new projects, we work and create day and night. In our world, the „night“ never comes, because as soon as we go to bed someone on the other side of the world is already getting up. We are trimmed for results and success and that is a good thing and beneficial. But in doing so we forget ourselves. We forget to perceive ourselves in relation to the world as an individual and we only see our purpose in this world blurred or even not at all. And just because we are constantly working and filled with fear of getting old.

Instead we should take one moment and perceive ourselves and our surroundings. And of course you can’t have it all at once, so start small, score big. A first, single thought about the relationship between you and your surroundings is a big step towards your destiny.


Three friends

The song is supposed to do many things, but it cannot possibly bring everyone to their own, individual purpose. It should simply poke the topic:

„ Slowmo is a song, a statement and a weird moment created one year ago by three friends. We hope this song will inspire you take a look from inside out: Ask yourself if you are taking enough time for yourself. Have you cooked something nice for yourself lately? When was the last time you danced your ass off? How long has it been since you turned off your phone? Please treat yourself. Thank you.“

The three friends are: Emely & Leo & Max


The Book of Moments

I treated myself. But first I had to remember myself. If it hasn't yet become clear: Slowmo was and is a process for me that has a lot to do with personality development. Hear, hear. In the process of writing I have essentially understood that at first I must distance myself from everything, really everything, and then get back to those things and persons that are most important to me, and then, damn it, finally get started! And that´s by living out my crazy ideas, fantasies, melodies, concepts and values.

That's what I'm working on every day now and besides producing daily I also had the idea for the Book of Moments. A book filled with moments, pictures and colors which describe and are - Slowmo. I also created a music video - lyric video, which you can watch on YouTube. You can also take a deeper look at Instagram picture by picture!



Lyrics

-

I take it slow

slower than before

cause getting old doesn´t scare me

I never took

my time to be

to breath

so slow and surely


I kept it real

falling in love

crashing my heart

never cared to let it heal

I took it slow

way to late

cause I´m afraid of losing this fight


Running running out of hope

we waited for all this time

we want to know it all

we wanna get old

slow


We try

we try

we try

we try

to get a hold of this solo

hit the brakes pretending we are old

living in slowmo

slo oh oh oh

slow


I can see them through my window

he carries her hands so carefully

he smiles at her 

with his whole life flashing before his eyes

she was there in every moment


Running running out of hope

she waited for all this time

she wants to know it all

she wants to get old

slow


We try

we try

we try

we try

to get a hold of this solo

hit the brakes pretending we are old

living in slowmo

slo oh oh oh

slow


Chasing the moment

where they can slow down

so busy chasing that they won´t slow down


Chasing the moment

where they can slow down

so busy chasing

just take it slow


slo oh oh oh

slow
