awkward i - “Everything on Wheels”

“But I anticipate your arrival, for it`s something I enjoy and I know that if you get here, the arrival will be spoiled…”

The release of "Everything on Wheels" pursues awkward i`s musical and emotional journey with richly beautiful but vivid songs inviting you on an evocative expedition through emotions, atmospheres and sounds, deftly embodied in music. Developed upon the themes and moods of gaining and loosing, awkwardi`s second album carries magnificent intro`s combined with gripping poetry and melodic depth; varied, subtle, complex and plain gorgeous music.

“But the spur of the moment and the spirit of place all ripped and torn in another blossom storm…”

The comfort songs on discomfort of the Dutch singer-songwriter Djurre de Haan have gone some way to earn their glowing melancholy but skillfully capture the strength, dynamics and raw emotion of a live performance.

Depending on change, depending on a date, on a time and a place they are delicate, sometimes edgy but each of them bearing something truly unique. Times change and what used to be the journey of one man and his guitar has now grown into the journey of a man with his guitar and a band. A band with timeless music with a sniff of folk.
Fragile and fascinating, intimate and intense: awkward i
