Biography

+++Liquefaction (Li'kwa-fak'shun): 1. The process of liquefying. 2. The phenomenon in which an earthquake liquefies the ground. +++

This band lives up to its title! Liquefaction's music is a soundscape that is electronically charged with diverse contrasts of surreal, dream-like emotion and intense industrial styles created to melt the listener into the artistic world. Liquefaction's songs cater to themes beyond the norm by introducing metaphoric Sci-Fi/Fantasy characters and story lines into their music and live shows, comparing ideas of the Earth's abolishment with our own perception of the world outside ourselves. Delving deeply into the psyche of an actual earthling, feeling misplaced, awkward and uncertain.. you will not hear your generic love song, but rather an intense journey which most, if honest, can relate to.

Formed by Kindel, (front woman, synths, vocals, programming) and now featuring Venus, (vocals synths, piano & programming,) Liquefaction made its debut in 2003 with the release of "Chrysalis" followed in 2004 by their second Album,"Emerge." While mainly solo, Kindel has collaborated with artists from around the world, expanding the Liquefaction sound to new dimensions.

Heavily influenced by bands like Pink Floyd and Depeche Mode, Kindel's main objective is to make her listeners think and feel. She longs to infect her audience with the passion that fuels her as a musician and as a fan of music.

"Kindel sings with a breathy rasp both engaging and disconcerting," comments Micheal Henningsen of Albuquerque's Alibi. "Her beautifully crafted melodies are then juxtaposed against a dream-like backdrop of musical menace and frightfully satisfying grooves." "With Emerge, Liquefaction has managed to create one of the sexiest albums out there right now," says Sameerah Blue of the LA based zine, "Ectomag," "Liquefaction has created a near perfect marriage of sensual sounds with lyrics that convey the power, strength and sadness of the world around us." "At times it could be compared with Android Lust but also Portishead and I may be crazy but Tori Amos. What also makes this a good release is that it is totally female fronted, written and composed, which is rare," says Gothx of Wet Works Zine. DJ M of Cyber Impact in Bologna, Italy states, "Another fine example of the electronic female music coming out from the underground!" And Jim Rosebrook, the director of the Recording Workshop, described Kindel as "The epitome of the future musician."
Liquefaction will to continue to grow in the scene, putting out more albums and hopes to eventually tour the world. Kindel shares her thoughts: "Liquefaction is a dream come true for me. It challenges me creatively and gives me an indescribable satisfaction to see my audiences dance, cry and get pissed off right along with me. They really get what I'm doing and that's how I know I'm where I'm supposed to be."

Lyrics

Silly Games

Written By: Kindel

I couldn't breathe under your spell
The chrysalis, chrysalis of you
But I guess that it's just as well
You never could, you never could see you

My passion only bleeds whispers of your name
You saw me on my knees but to you it's just a game

Silly games you say
These silly games you play
Silly games you say
But I don't feel that way

These silly games you say
Silly games you play
Silly games you say
But I don't feel that way

When will ya see it
When will you GET it
When will you open your eyes

Your pride is, your pride is the demise

of me

Silly games you say
These silly games you play
Silly games you say
But I don't feel that way

These silly games you say
Silly games you play
Silly games
But I don't feel that way

Silly games you say

These silly games you play

These silly games you say

But I don't feel that way

Believe

Written By: Kindel

TAKE ME BACK
A MILLION YEARS
LIGHT THE WAY THAT I'M SUPPOSED TO FOLLOW
TAKE THIS THREAD AND PULL ME THROUGH
SHOW ME WHAT I'M SUPPOSED TO DO
'CUZ I HAVEN'T GOT A CLUE
WHAT I'M EXPECTED TO DO, TO DO, TO DO FOR YOU
AND DO I, DO I, DO I, DO I BELIEVE
THAT THIS IS REAL?
DO I, DO I, DO I, DO I BELIEVE,
BELIEVE IN SOMETHING REAL?

MELT THIS STONE
WHERE I CAN SEE
LET ME FEEL IT BEATING
GIVE ME PROOF THAT YOU ARE REAL
LET THESE WOUNDS START BLEEDING
'CUZ I ..HAVEN'T GOT A CLUE
WHAT YOU THINK I COULD DO, COULD DO, COULD DO FOR YOU
AND DO I, DO I, DO I, DO I BELIEVE
THAT YOU'RE FOR REAL?
AND DO I, DO I, DO I, DO I BELIEVE
THAT WE COULD HAVE SOMETHING REAL?

YOU WOULD THINK I'M CRAZY
HOW LOST I AM INSIDE MY HEAD
A TORMENTED MIND
IT'S A WAR THAT NEVER ENDS INSIDE ME
IT'S A WAR THAT NEVER ENDS INSIDE ME
SHOW ME WHAT IS REAL

TAKE ME BACK
A THOUSAND YEARS
TAKE THIS THREAD AND PULL ME THROUGH
THE TAPESTRY, THE ART OF LIFE
A PURPOSE AND A PLACE TO THRIVE FOR REAL
SO I.. COULD BELIEVE IN SOMETHING
I.. COULD BELIEVE IN SOMETHING REAL

COULD I, COULD I, COULD I, COULD I BELIEVE?
DO I, DO I, DO I, DO I BELIEVE,
BELIEVE IN SOMETHING REAL?

Pressure

Written By: Kindel

Watch the way
The world portrays the role you should play
What to do and what to say
Go to school
Get a job
Pay the bills
Don't be a slob
You can do better
You can do better
Find a mate and join a crew
There must be something you can do better
You can do better

Pressure
You're under pressure
You're life's a circus and you are on parade
Pressure
You're under pressure
Just like an infant behind the wheel and you can't reach the breaks
Under pressure
You might not make the grade

Just be yourself
And conform to society
Just be you
And do what we tell you to
And when you figure that
It's all crap
Just remember that
Your Mommy loves you
Your Daddy does too

We are counting on you
You have obligations to fulfill
And if it is too much return your shoes for someone else to fill
And if you don't buy everything we tell you you should have
We'll make your life hell
And make sure you're picked last

Pressure
You're under pressure
You're life's a circus and you are on parade
Pressure
You're under pressure
Just like an infant behind the wheel and you can't reach the breaks
Under pressure
You might not make the grade

Just be yourself
And conform to society
Just be you
And do what we tell you to
And when you figure that
It's all crap
Just remember that
Your Mommy loves you
Your Daddy does too

Will you be my friend
And be there till the very end?
Should I be more like you
And dress the way you want me to?
Or will you tell me that
I'm too fat?
Will you point and laugh?
Your Mommy loves you
Your Daddy does too
