about

Kostis Chaveles has released his new album “A Mad Tea Party” which, believe it or not, was recorded in his apartment. What makes that so, so very impressive is that this album has all of the polished slickness that one would expect from a major label endeavor while retaining all of the dirt and sincerity of a talented and weathered artist. I would compare Kostis, as both a songwriter and a musician, to the solo era Nuno Bettencourt because he shows all of the signs of an artist venturing out and testing his limits. Plus the songs are amazing!

about

Kostis Chaveles Greece

Well, making music is always a therapy for me.
My songs are often affected by what can be “heard” and “seen” (mainly pictured in the mind). Also, I like to keep titles and lyrics abstract. My music has its own thoughts and message, but I don’t want to impose it onto the listener. I want everyone to freely imagine what they will from the music. ... more

Track Name: Marionette
Like a pet
Captured in a hunting net
And you are their
Their marionette

Strings attached
To your arms again
Now it’s you to entertain

I bleed… I bleed

Free set me free
Always will
Flying free
Track Name: Illusion
One day i found in the sea
Not so far from me
A tiny little yellow tree
The tree was really lanky
With many flowers on it
It’s leaves i started eating
And after that i started thinking

That i wanna be a tree so strong and free
Everything i wanna be, will be
And now this tree a ship is me
This must be a place to be
All i can see
Now i’m a part of it myself
At my fingers end how proud i am
This must be a place to be all i can see
Now i’m free
Beneath the tree i left my mask
Don’t worry about the past
There is nothing more that i could ask
Don’t know how to make it last
That i wanna be a tree so strong and free
Everything i wanna be, will be
And now this tree a ship is me
This must be a place to be
All i can see
Now i’m a part of it myself
At my fingers end how proud i am
This must be a place to be all i can see
Now i’m free
Track Name: A Mad tea Party
Never had a weekend a weekend free
But now there’s going to be a mad party with tea
It was very nice to think
Table was full of meat and drink
They came all dressed up in yellow red and green
The dumbest sight i’ve ever ever ever ever seen!

We gathered all around with greetings to be
We all were so happy as happy could be
I knew this day would come
We have tarried long enough
It’s getting late we must go
My cup of tea – Wait..
Track Name: Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde
Sheep in the morning, wild at night
My friend in the dark light
All the secrets you hide
You crying princess with the beast inside

Trapped in your own cell
Made your life a burning hell
Always giving a lost fight
You crying princess with the beast inside

But now i've seen your face
I'm giving up this endless race
There is no one else by your side
Just you and your beast inside

You made me believe you
Bonned me to never leave you
I joined you in your crazy ride
You crying princess with the beast inside
Track Name: Bedhead
I can't make my bed
I can't wake up dead
I can't fall asleep
I can't even weep

I guess i'll put my chips
On the worst bet
Never had any ideas
Never had any volunteers
I think i'm going to bed
To set my hair
Like a bedhead, like a bedhead

I don't like my hair
Don't pray as well
Don't speak very well
Don't give a damn

I guess i'll put my chips
On the worst bet
Never had any ideas
Never had any volunteers
I think i'm going to bed
To set my hair
Like a bedhead, like a bedhead

I am not scared
I am not prepared
I am not in the mood
Iam not robin hood
Track Name: Happy Bunny
I'm happy that the sun is red
So happy that i can be myself

I'm happy, hate being sad
So happy that i wet my bed last night

Oh.. no I'm a liar

I'm tired of all this crap
So tired, I'll just lie here and die

Oh.. no I'm a liar
Track Name: Run
Run to reach the sky
Put your fears behind

Run or you'll get shot
Don't ever stop

Maybe you are the cause
Yes of course yes of course

Run for your life
If you don't you'll die

Hey Mr go away
It's your lucky day

Standing in front of an iron gate
It's a great escape!

Hopes around to get away
Take in bugs everyday

Made a hole on the floor
He could see into, the hidden room below
Track Name: My Apple pie
Lay in bed
And i think of a pie
Lay in chair
Where is the pie
She is my best friend
You should give it a try
There is one think
Always catch my eye, catch my eye

Her foxy eyes
The way they glow sometimes
Her golden dress
Seems like she is blessed, blessed

Where is my apple pie
Give me my apple pie

It's easy you say
You have to show me someday..
Track Name: Deep In You
You told me you cannot feel
That's why you always take the pill
It's like you are born with it
It happens with every guy you meet

Let me swim in your sea
This is where i wanna be

I'll dive deep in your blue
Deep in your tears
Deep in you
I'll dive deep in your blue
Deep in your fears
Deep in you

I'll dive deep in your blue
Deep in your tears
Deep in you
I'll dive deep in your blue
Deep in your fears
Deep in you
Track Name: Cat
She was living in a very dark place
So that they could not see her face

I saw her every night through my sails
She was alone but never scared of planes

I cannot hide myself from me
She is a spacegirl don't you see

I wonder if she thinks of me
Sometimes red sometimes green

I dream a girl a sexy girl
She is in space everywhere

Everywhere!

I cannot hide myself from me
She is a spacegirl don't you see

I wonder if she thinks of me
Sometimes red sometimes green

I dream a girl a sexy girl
She is in space everywhere

Everywhere!
