Power 03:59
i thought i was ready to take it all in i thought it was easy to shed my own skin but now i have to give it all up but now i have to make it all stop i thought i was stronger that i would be fine i thought i can breathe in and cross that line but now i have to fight for it still but now i’m going in for the kill but now i have to give it all up but now i have to make it all stop
Rósar 04:21
i found the strength to say this now after years of crying shame the wounds i had seem to be healed cause now i found my way again a little twinkle of starlight has made the raging waves subside my rabbit heart has opened up into the wind i throw myself with everything i got the minutes now are in the air the glow of time is spreading everywhere embracing warmly all the space you made the planets move to make a place for us to live the way our lips combine i won't let go the warm embrace that speaks to me the roses in the breath of a sleepless night i'll never let this get away i found myself in you again i wanna feel you close to me
Commotion 04:04
Pulse 03:04
Lion 04:21
now is no time for running now you have got to get it commence your operations promise you won't regret it you've waited for that moment hidden behind the shadows dreaming of something better of green magnetic meadows leaning towards the future but trapped inside your past how long did you think those empty promises would last promise you won't regret it getting way ahead of all of those people that have burned a mark right on your forehead it’s liberating to be away from haters to stay in your lane commence your operations why waste your time those people never loved you eating your insides fucking up all your stories remove yourself don't drink their dirty posion they wouldn’t spare you a thought any longer its better this way it’s so electrifying there’s no shame in justifying of who’s the lamb and who’s the lion there’s no shame in justifying of who’s the lamb and who’s the lion
Fantasize 04:05


there's no shame in justifying of who's the lamb and who's the lion.

Hey Karen Rotterdam, Netherlands

Hey Karen is an alias for Bartek Urban, who creates electronica, synthpop, and industrial - the stuff that both melts your heart and your brain.
Home recordings and lo-fi aesthetic aren't necessarily a bad thing, since he believes the feeling is more important. A full scope of that feeling can be seen in his audiovisual live shows, which he regularly performs since 2011.
