A soft voice, catchy melodies and refined rythmes. A refreshing mixture of indie, pop and folk. Hugo's Cousin is the singersongwriter project of Dorien Staljanssens (Belgium). She plays music since she was aged 5 (first piano and guitare and later on flute) and went from classical to pop, jazz and folk. On a cloudy day she decided to pour these effervescent musical impulses into authentic songs ... more

Track Name: The Clown and The Juggler
All the people cheer at the circus
They enjoy the clown and the juggler
Why don’t you take part in the circus
Dance on a rope or twist like a tumbler

What you’re gonna do I hope something important
What you’re gonna do with your life
You should make a lot a lot a lot of money
Don’t become a poor wife

People cheer for too too much splendor
trumpets support their standing ovation
Should I be a clown or a juggler
What’s the point of that aspiration

People dazed by too too much splendor
trumpets force on them a standing ovation
Should I be a clown or a juggler
What’s the point of that aspiration
Track Name: Nothing to Say
Our days were numbered from the start
our days were numbered from the start
You played a trick on my heart afterall
and now you’re leaving me in doubt

Dance with me, Dance through the night with me
let’s celebrate once more our little party
I know, You know, We’re just escaping from
the rough wind and storm so we close our eyes
Before I have to go
before I have to go

Let’s keep it easy, Let’s not say a word
Let’s keep it easy, Don’t get hurt
I hear so much absence in your phrase
So I just hide my face

Dance with me, Dance through the night with me
let’s celebrate once more our little party
I know, You know, We’re just escaping from
the rough winter storm so we close our eyes
Before I have to go
before I have to go

Why did you come?
Yes I was waiting, but you had nothing to say
Why did you come?
Yes I was waiting but you had nothing to say

All the contemplations in my mind
all the memories inside
Sometimes I wish they could be all undone
or do I wish it’s just begun?

Dance with me, Dance through the night with me
let’s celebrate once more our little party
I know, You know, We’re just escaping from
the rough wind and storm so we close our eyes
Before I have to go
before I have to go

Why did you come?
Yes I was waiting, but you had nothing to say
Why did you come?
Yes I was waiting but you had nothing to say

Nothing to say
nothing to say
nothing to say
Track Name: Oblivion
I’m weary of this idle state
between love and nowhere
I’m suffering from oblivion
cause I’m breathing empty air

I‘m going around in circles
in a canoe in the bay
All just blurry recollections
I’m still trying to obey

I hope you know you make me linger
I hope you know you make me numb
Refresh my mind, Remember how we used to float
How we surfed the waves of revelry

I’m locked inside a time shift
While I see the seasons pass
If ever again we synchronize
The world around us will collapse
