Sven B. Schreiber (sbs) This is another one of my favorite Twitch TV artists. Thankfully she plays lots of original songs, and not just cover versions, like many others - something I highly appreciate. This 75-minute album is solid proof of her boundless creativity. Watch her live at www.twitch.tv/venusworld Favorite track: Sea Songs Trilogy.
John O'Connor

John O'Connor This is Radiohead cunningly disguised as Dua Lipa, it's Punk pretending to be Prog, it's quietly subversive, like being hit in the head with a sledgehammer wrapped in silk. It's genius.

btrubert A wonderful album, I love the production and Venus' voice. The melodies are truly amazing, like something I was long waiting for, and that I can now finally listen to, on repeat everywhere and all the time :-). Congratulations!

damanique Whenever I listen to the Sea Songs Trilogy I always see an entire movie play in my head about the story that Venus tells through these haunting melodies. <3 Favorite track: Sea Songs Trilogy.

Quriosity Cat Venus takes us on a tour through her world, which is our world as well, more often than not. A haunting, eerie, powerful, and hurting world full of secrets, traps and escapes, sometimes so personal that it draws goosebumps. Favorite track: A Million Voices (Remix).

Sometimes I feel like I am Just another drop in the water Like I can't separate myself from The faces of a million others With every step I'm treading In the footprints of those who came before me And now inside I'm dreading That every word I write is just a copy So the darkness creeps inside Then it spreads into my mind Oh the darkness creeps inside Then it spreads into my mind Set me apart from a million other voices Choose me above all that you see Please don't hold me responsible for my choices They don't belong to me Oh don't belong to me I can feel my chest tighten When I hear my melodies in someone's writing And I don't know why I'm frightened Of someone else out there like me succeeding The funny thing I've learned from fear is When you let it in and face it, it gets smaller So I sit with it and hear it Peaceful in the chaos and disorder I let the darkness creep inside Let it spread into my mind I let the darkness creep inside, Let it spread into my mind It says "Set me apart from a million other voices Choose me above all that you see Please don't hold me responsible for my choices They don't belong to me Oh don't belong to me" And I have feared, next to yours, That my light won't be seen shining And there's just not room for two But as they cheered, the applause Began gently to remind me That I'm stronger thanks to you It sets me apart from a million other voices It makes me at one with all I see Cos I am solely responsible for my choices And only me It sets me apart from a million other voices It makes me at one with all I see Cos I am solely responsible for my choices And only me Oh and only me Oh and only me

So comes a tune to the colour of you Does it seem too soon to feel the way that we do You stay with me under a swathe of stars You sway with me in a lover's first dance Of words and touch So play me a song then let the silence fall Show me yourself then let me rediscover you all Over and over again Over and over again The fading pink light reflects in your eyes And somehow every word you say tonight seems wise You stay with me under a swathe of stars You sway with me in a lover's first dance Of words and touch So play me a song then let the silence fall Show me yourself then let me rediscover you all Over and over again Over and over again And I could feel a gap in time When your eyes first looked into mine And I knew that already I was yours Before the sun had met the sky Before the day turned into night Oh I was your before birds had gained their flight And I was yours long before our first goodbye Oh I was yours long before our first goodbye
3.
You're a step away, just a breath away, I want to let you in You look like you're from heaven but it feels like you're a sin I push you away, almost every day, afraid to feel like this The torture of your presence is the absence of your kiss Before you go I'd like to hold you close and breathe you in Oh before you go I'd like to let you know That I love you Oh I know, I said "no" and now you're letting go Your skin brushes mine, is the rush just mine, I hope you feel this too my cheeks are turning red now, why am I quite so see-through Would you cross the line, although you're not mine, my judgement is impaired The way my heart is racing is making me quite scared Before you go I'd like to hold you close and breath you in Oh before you go I'd like to let you know That I love you Oh I know, I said "no" and now you're letting go So meet me after dark underneath the green canopy and knowing that we soon will part, you draw your body close to me and you say so softly Before I go I had to hold you close... and breathe you in (Answer voice: Before I go I had to hold you close - and breathe you in) Oh before I go I had to let you know ... That I love you oh (I won’t forget - your face - it’s burned into my brain) Before I go I had to hold you close... and breathe you in (it’s breaking my heart, to leave you like this but I cannot stay) Oh before I go I had to let you know ... That I love you oh (oh how can I leave you, leave you behind, when I love you oh) I know, you said "no" but I'm not letting go (I know, you said no, but I’m not letting go)

Hunted 06:00 video
Hunted hunter unknown But I'm never alone And when I'm on the phone I can hear a buzz on the line No it's not in my mind Yes I'm sure this time And you can hear them when you sleep Cos they will call you by name And you can sense that there is no escape While you're a pawn in their game In their game Writing down their every move Just so I can prove They're real to you Curtains drawn they still see inside Why am I surprised I feel their eyes on me And you can hear them when you sleep Cos they will call you by name And you can sense that there is no escape While you're a pawn in their game And you can run and you can hide And you can scream with all your might But you know that you can't choose Cos in the end they decide your move Your move And now it's time to face The emptiness that greets me And begins to replace The person that I would be And you can hear them when you sleep Cos they will call you by name And you can sense that there is no escape While you're a pawn in their game And you can run and you can hide And you can scream with all your might But you know that you can't choose Cos in the end they decide your move Your move Hunted hunter unknown But I'm never alone No I’m never alone

Though I'll love you forever more it can't be like it was before When you and I we used to have it all Cos you pushed everyone I love Right off the edge from way above And now they're feeling just a little sore I don't know what you're thinking of When you claim all we need is love To help us fight another fucking war So do you really want to play the game Where we decide who takes the blame Another funny little twist in all of this And do you really want to know The reason that I'm letting go Another pair of lips Is so much better of a kiss You think I'm hanging around now Waiting for you to change your mind I'm no longer bound by Your web of lies You think I'm hanging around now Waiting for you to change your mind I'm no longer bound by Your web of lies I watched you as you walked away And on my knees begged you to stay But now I'm fighting hard to keep you gone Cos the second that I tell you I Have found myself another guy You turn around and tell me you were wrong But I will not put up with this Cos you're starting to take the piss And now I'm wondering why I stayed so long You thought I'd crumple up and die The moment that you left my side You're not the only one surprised That I'm still standing strong I guess you didn't realise The fire that burns deep inside me Still burns just as hot When you are gone You think I'm hanging around now Waiting for you to change your mind I'm no longer bound by Your web of lies You think I'm hanging around now Waiting for you to change your mind I'm no longer bound by Your web of lies Oh love everlasting's a fad and the last thing I want from you Still you were the best that I'd had and you know that I'd had a few But you're only as good as you're bad and now That I've seen that view Well I've seen that view You think I'm hanging around now Waiting for you to change your mind I'm no longer bound by Your web of lies You think I'm hanging around now Waiting for you to change your mind I'm no longer bound by Your web of lies Though I'll love you forever more It can't be like it was before When you and I we used to have it all

Oxygen 05:27 video
Lay back with me I'll walk you through our memories Remind you that I was kind to you once I will understand if you wont take my hand But I will still reach out for yours Cos the nights out with the lights out The way the smoke clung to our skin The mornings ignored the warnings As we gasped for oxygen But I'd willingly make Just one last mistake Cos they made me wiser They made me a fighter for love That was love That was love As we've grown older you've grown a little colder But I'm still bowled over by you Still I'm no longer dreaming of staring at the ceiling While lying beside you again Cos the nights out with the lights out The way the smoke clung to our skin The mornings ignored the warnings As we gasped for oxygen But I'd willingly make Just one last mistake Cos they made me wiser They made me a fighter for love That was love That was love So take take take take take take take take Take take take take take take all my heart And break break break break break break break break Break break break break break break me apart Cos the nights out with the lights out The way the smoke clung to our skin The mornings ignored the warnings As we gasped for oxygen But I'd willingly make Just one last mistake Cos they made me wiser They made me a fighter for love That was love That was love The nights out with the lights out the way The smoke clung to our skin The mornings ignored the warnings As we gasped for oxygen But I'd willingly make Just one last mistake Cos they made me wiser They made me a fighter for love That was love That was love

He’s child at heart He’s a dad at home He’s a man at work But when he’s alone He’ll paint his lips A ruby red And he’ll stay out late And be her instead Her Her Her Her Her Her Her Her He always felt He just blended in In his suit and tie But when she walks in The room lights up They want to kiss her hand They’ll treat her like No other man Her Her Her Her Her Her Her Her At dawn’s first light He will come back home Crawling into bed Hoping she won’t know The beauty of his Second life Is hidden from His loving wife Her Her Her Her Her Her Her Her Would they understand Would they take her hand And love her too Could they let her in Or would they just see him And wish they never knew He’s child at heart He’s a dad at home He’s a man at work But when he’s alone He’ll paint his lips A ruby red And he’ll stay out late And be her instead Her Her Her Her Her Her Her Her

Better the Devil you know And you know this one well Smiling he leans in and says "Hello" And you know your soul you'd sell Just to lie with him in Hell He'll leave you writhing on the floor And even then you'll scream for more Cos when his eyes are locked on yours You know you've let the Devil You've let the Devil in your door You've let the Devil in your door You've let the Devil in your door You know you've let the Devil You let the Devil in your door He wants to leave his mark upon your skin And willingly you'll oblige Just to own scars that came from him Makes you feel a sense of pride You think to bleed is to be alive He'll leave you writhing on the floor And even then you'll scream for more Cos when his eyes are locked on yours You know you've let the Devil You've let the Devil in your door You've let the Devil in your door You've let the Devil in your door You know you've let the Devil You let the Devil in your door Oh holy light Is this what it's like to feel like All the wrong you've ever done is right? I am in flight and I will Let the Devil in my door Let the Devil in my door Let the Devil in my door I know I'll let the Devil I'll let the Devil in my door I'll let the Devil in my door I'll let the Devil in my door I know I'll let the Devil I'll let the Devil in my door

I don't wanna hurt you I guess that's all that I can say say And I don't want to desert you But you cannot force me to stay stay Sometimes we just need to be Reminded that we're okay With every living part of me Believed that all we'd ever need was love But everything is falling through I guess I never really knew enough Now breathing out is letting go Of everything I claimed to know of us of us With all that I've done to you I don't expect you to return turn Told me that I took your Your beating heart and let it burn burn I guess that this was just a Lesson that I had to learn But with every living part of me Believed that all we'd ever need was love But everything is falling through I guess I never really knew enough Now breathing out is letting go Of everything I claimed to know of us of us And when the rain comes Oh will I be the only one to step outside I guess I tried And when the end comes near Oh will I be the only one to say goodbye I live in fear Cos with every living part of me Believed that all we'd ever need was love But everything is falling through I guess I never really knew enough Now breathing out is letting go Of everything I claimed to know of us of us

They say I'm fine just a little bit "lost in my mind" Then they ask me "why don't I have faith in above ?" Cos "He could save all that you love" They say that they pray to a God That I know doesn't listen Then they wait for the grave And behave as though He would forgive them Ohhh But the things they've done are far too bad And a God who forgives them is not a God I'd have And they'll use His "love" to cover up their tracks Well I'm not into that Breathe down their necks just a little bit Watch as the sweat starts to collect As I ask them what they've done For the affection that they have won They said that they beg to a God That has bled to create them To absolve all their sins give them hymns Make them sing then repeat them Ohhhh But the things they've done are far too bad And a God who forgives them is not a God I'd have And they'll use His "love" to cover up their tracks Well I'm not into that Confess to your sins at the end And show Him you truly repent For in life you were crooked and bent and weak Then reach out your arms to the light But ready yourself for a fight For your right to a life after life's In His hands His hands But the things they've done are far too bad And a God who forgives them is not a God I'd have And they'll use His "love" to cover up their tracks Well I'm not into that But the things they've done are far too bad And a God who forgives them is not a God I'd have And they'll use His "love" to cover up their tracks Well I'm not into that

I know that you’re lost cos honey I’m lost too And I know that you’re scared Cos I see right through that smile Don’t try to be brave no not today Let’s be okay with not being okay This part is hard As we put up bars Around our hearts Fuck It I miss you We had a good thing I miss the way you smile The way you smell The way you everything God damn it I wish you Weren’t so attractive So physically active Or maybe its Just cos you’re not mine I’ve always been a sucker For a motherfucker Who makes me pine So you call me late at night babe when I’m in bed And say you wanna take back half of what you said that day Would that be okay? And did I wanna come over and help you finish that book ? You know the one with the title I mistook And lie with my head in your shoulder nook and stay Like when we were in love But none of the above Can happen again This should be the end Fuck It I miss you We had a good thing I miss the way you smile The way you smell The way you everything God damn it I wish you Weren’t so attractive So physically active Or maybe its Just cos you’re not mine I’ve always been a sucker For a motherfucker Who makes me pine And I was doing so well not crossing the line And drowning all my sorrows in red wine I guess it’s hard even to be reminded Of the divine of the divine Fuck It I miss you We had a good thing I miss the way you smile The way you smell The way you everything God damn it I wish you Weren’t so attractive So physically active Or maybe its Just cos you’re not mine I’ve always been a sucker For a motherfucker Who makes me pine Fuck It I miss you We had a good thing I miss the way you smile The way you smell The way you everything God damn it I wish you Weren’t so attractive So physically active Or maybe its Just cos you’re not mine I’ve always been a sucker For a motherfucker Who makes me pine

Part 1 - The Song of the Bird I looked at the tide I wasn’t surprised When they capsized Pulled into the depths While their mothers wept Forever they slept A tale I hate to tell But it must be heard I’ve always preferred The song of the bird The waves brought to the shore A single oar And nothing more And carved into the wood A message that should Warn others that could Follow in their wake Oh we are all fools It’s taken our soul The siren’s call Stolen from the sun Four fishermen They were so young And now just a song on the breeze Floating with ease Over the seas Part 2 - The Last Song of the Siren I dreamt I dove deep down Until I touched the ground Wasn’t afraid I’d drown My mind occupied by the sound Of a voice I’d swear I’d heard before Calling me from the shore I’m cold And I feel I’m slipping under The waves They roll ahead like thunder And I can hear The absence of my beating heart And now I fear That this is how I will depart I felt an icy hand Wrap around my wrist And then my chest expand With a life-giving kiss And her lips so soft and oh so red Whispered ‘I might as well be dead’ For to save The life of a mortal Means in place That I sacrifice my soul And I can feel The slowing of my beating heart And as he heals I can feel myself depart I’m cold And I feel I’m slipping under The clouds They roll ahead with thunder Well when I saw The beauty in this sailor’s eyes Well I knew My existence I would sacrifice My song will leave my lips One final time And my body will be claimed By the foaming brine Part 3 - The Sailor's Song So I have awoken But I feel inside As if the ocean Could have cried and cried and cried Remind me how I’m alive Why does the sand beneath me Tell me two were here I feel I’ve loved so deeply Did my memory disappear A whisper in my ear Why do I feel like I’d give my life To the siren inside my mind My sorrow runs so deep that I Fall to my knees and cry Please Be alive So I comb the sand for The remnants of a kiss That my lips are certain Must exist Did I imagine this Angel from the mist My salty stinging eyes stare Hopelessly out to sea As I whisper to the ocean If you bring her back to me I will teach her hope to be Human Then I swear that out there in the waves I see the delicate features of her face So I dive straight in to the surf And swim to her with everything I’m worth Please Breathe Take back the breath you gave me And tell my why you saved me And let me teach you how to walk on earth And then her eyes filled with tears As her body became bound to human years And a song so beautiful Cascaded from her lips Just like a waterfall If I am yours And you are mine I think we’ll be just fine

about

'VENUSWORLD' is the brand new album from UK singer-songwriter and Twitch music streamer Venus.

Over two years in the making, ‘VenusWorld’ is an album that has been shaped by the unique alchemy that happens when ‘artist meets fan’ in a live interactive environment such as music streaming. Venus, whose powerful and haunting voice and piano-playing lie at the centre of all her performances, has come to know her fans, their passions, their struggles and their values. And she celebrates her own stories and those of her fans through her compositions which explore subjects as challenging as addiction (‘The Devil at Your Door’ - lofi indie pop), as powerful as belief systems (‘God From Joe’s Perspective’ - alt indie) and as personal as imposter syndrome (A Million Voices’- lofi pop).

Co-produced with record-producer dad Bazza (who made his living as an engineer and producer in the formative days of the UK house music scene and who was one of the first UK songwriters/producers to sign to Motown’s UK publishing division), ‘VenusWorld’ is unashamedly diverse and draws its inspiration from a deep pool of musical influences that span several decades and many genres with flavours of Lana Del Rey, Adele, Aurora, Bowie, Radiohead and cinematic soundtracks. From the contemporary beats of the love song ‘Swathe of Stars’ to the 007 rock vibes of the paranoia-themed ‘Hunted’ to the stripped back acoustic rawness of ‘Her’- a song all about having the courage to express yourself - ‘VenusWorld’ is the unveiling of an artist who has truly found a way to express herself through a diversity of styles
