about

After the release of her debut solo effort, Life Goes On, Astrid Engberg continues the presentation of her musical universe, rich and eclectic, with her second of a series of four, Poetry Is Gone.
We discovered her knowledge in Jazz, this time Astrid Engberg explore
a more eclectic and electronic avenue, embelished with Africain influences (music that touched her soul during travels in Burkina Faso) and dotted of Hip Hop vibes with the vocals collaborations of Mattic, and the production skills of Dirty Art Club, Mighty DR, Blanka.
A new travel which proves that Astrid Engberg’s horizon is not frozen and seems to be able to spread until infini, without loosing herself.

Track Name: Poetry Is Gone
while we were fast asleep
we became children of our own mistakes
the sky fell and earth took up the fight
rearranged day to night
now the world is upside down.

we wake up to a life where we walk on our fingertips
all is flipped and poetry is gone,
how come we don't interfere and repair when this world go wrong.
Track Name: It's Been So Long
cornfield flower catch my eye
yellow as the sun up in the high
mind floating on a sky
I'm in the house where I grew up

childhood dreams
homemade plays and lemonade
this is my scene
air is so clean

I can't believe its been so long
can't believe its been so long

I can't believe it's been so long
since I was in my hometown in the summer.
no I can't believe its been so long
since I was in my hometown in the summer.

I can't believe.
I can't believe it's been so long.

rollerskating side by side
let me reflect, no nothing has changed
maybe I'm new
I'll follow the railways home.

I can't believe its been so long
since I really felt at home in the summer.
I can't believe its been so long.
no, I can't believe its been so long
since I was in my hometown in the summer.
Track Name: Alright (Feat Mattic)
all is vanishing and drifting by
the hours, the days, you and I

alright,
I don't feel its alright.
you and I.

all is vanishing and drifting by
the hours, you and I.

all these days
all these ways

alright,
you and I

'cause all is vanishing and all is drifting by
all is drifting by, like you and I
Track Name: Heaven's Shore (Feat Mattic)
all been said before
it's all been lived and what is more
we try to keep our lives galore and it kills me.
every phrase has had a past and to the ending it will last
that heavens kiss on sunshine shores will thrill me.
Track Name: Rain (Feat Mattic)
tall majestic trees will spread their leaves
eternally in my memory
- eternally.
And color painted skies stay on my mind even at night.

give me just a little drop of rain to ease the pain
- release the chain
don't let me fight this war in vain.
give me just a little drop of rain


this lonely feel's just always been a part of me
don't frighten me you see
its how you choose to build your memory


give me just a little drop of rain
give me just a little drop of rain


give me just a little drop of rain to ease the pain
-release the chain
don't let me fight this war in vain
Track Name: Ouaga Noma
wake up with a smile
Ouaga breeze is blowing.
sand will travel miles
it's where the wise is spoken.

noma noma Ouaga noma
noma noma

when I hear this melody
it takes me deep into the memory
of dancing free
in red Ouaga dust
that's where I wanna be.

noma noma Ouaga noma
noma noma

Ouaga noma (noma noma)
Ouaga noma (noma noma Ouaga noma)
yasida Ouaga noma
Track Name: Again
outside the night is secretly sneaking in
eating up the day but lets the sound of good times begin.
a steady groove and a melody.
the soundtrack of life
the time to breathe for me.

'cause here I go again
all uptight and thinking: how will this end?


time is drifting
while I watch the seasons change.
playing chess with life
reaching out of my range

'cause here I go again
all uptight and thinking: how will this end?
how will this end?
Track Name: Away We Move
constant change is what is on.
is what is on.

constant change is what is on.
morning night and note to song.
tried so hard but everything went wrong
for every day we were together
I got to live one out on my own
the inner timeline must take its time

as we move away from what we had, what we shared away we move
as we move away from what we had, what we shared away we move

constant change is what is on

I guess some things aren't meant to last
when all we have is in the past.

as we move away from what we had, what we shared away we move
as we move away from what we had, what we shared away we move

constant change is what is on. what is on
