Intrinsically linked to the somehow austere and mournful “Obsession Is A Gun” by its pluralistic nature and its dualistic essence, “Muets Aux Temps Des Amours” is a lucid admission of the ephemera of life (Impermanence), but yet a hopeful vision of changing times (Tempora Mutantur). It’s a quiet but resolute moment of contemplation expressed through the noise of existence, expressed in a magnificently written poem by Foster and vibrantly incarnated in Japanese by Momoka Tobari through the waving feedbacks of the band’s stirring guitars. You cannot deny the introspective dimension of the moment, as the journey of “Between Illness And Migration” slowly comes to a transitionary atmosphere and a brighter tone.
Therefore, “Muets Aux Temps Des Amours” delivers its pure hopeful defining intent as Foster acknowledges the sorrowful state of his heart while confessing his determination to embrace the resolution to let go of all abstract bounding memories, to welcome down pouring lights over his lost soul, comparing love to an everlasting sakura tree, faithful to its blooming promises. It could be about the home Foster found in Japan, about the love he allowed himself to live or about a renewed relationship with a god he left behind a long time ago. Regardless of the vulnerable nature of his lack of answers to the numerous questions he has at the crossroad of his journey, he nonetheless believes in the redemptive nature of a new lit morning dawn… for whatever it means.
Every song hides a different story, and “Muets Aux Temps Des Amours” is one that is very special for Alex. Discover more about the song in this new blog about the album “Between Illness And Migration”

“Muets Aux Temps Des Amours” is a song about the acknowledgement of one’s sorrowful state of heart, the confession of one’s determination to embrace the resolution to let go of all abstract bounding memories, to welcome down pouring lights over his lost soul. The song compares love to an eternal sakura tree. Unconventional in its form and sound, “Muets Aux Temps Des Amours” was born from the spark of a feeling that followed the creation of the song “Obsession Is A Gun”. Intrinsically linked together, “Muets Aux Temps Des Amours” evokes feelings that are completely contrary to those we feel in “Obsession Is A Gun”… It is that necessary transition that links a storm to a peaceful sun, a severe hurt to a profound healing, illness and migration.
