about

Winston Wutu Brussels, Belgium

Our first EP is out and ready to be heard!

Winston Wutu unravels the threads between life, death, homeliness, adventure, water and sand.

Its band members Koen, Woody, Dries and Mathias all breathe the same air of wist- and graceful music.

Winston Wutu takes you to a desolate, dusty plain where Neil Young, Josh Ritter, Alison Krauss and Ryan Adams can be heard humming in the distance.

Track Name: Where War Sounds Echo On
Take me back to the coalmine
To your humble handmade shrine
Inside the church of our bloodline
Where our stories intertwine

O mother, help me be
I am lost upon the open sea

In your heart rests a town
Where war sounds echo on
In your stories I have drowned
The water hasn’t gone

O mother, help me be
I am lost upon the open sea

Where you have drowned
Where Salacia has been crowned
That’s where I am to be found
Where siren songs resound

May the wind blow strong
On the ocean where I belong
May my encounters by kind
Before time leaves my mind

O mother, help me be
I am lost upon the open sea

Where you have drowned
Where Salacia has been crowned
That’s where I am to be found
Where siren songs resound.
Track Name: In The Darkest Of Times
You disappear for so long
Solitude for notes
Melodies and odes
To queens, cities and gods

I feel your thoughts
A river so wide
I’ll be ever buzzing
Trying to reach the sun

You are a ship that sails away
On the lowest of tides
You are a light shining night and day
In the darkest of times
In the darkest of times with you I’ll sail

Here, my love
Fold up your wings
My body’s a nest
For a phoenix’s long-deserved rest

Tell me the reasons you love me again
Explain me your dreams
In the land of the predestined stories of men
We silently speak
About all that is said to be illusory
For it cannot be seen

Teach me again how to dream like you do
I put my nights in your hands
Until the blackness that fills my sleep
Learns how to dance
With the sheets that cover a universe
Of water and sand
Track Name: Prints In The Snow
The pack of wolves is moving slowly
Heading straight for the city
Running on malignity and fierce like an army

There’s murder in their gloomy eyes
Won’t bother striking by surprise
Eyes on the prize and I’m walking here by their side

I will follow. I will catch up
I will follow your prints in the snow

All they need’s a bended mirror
To make themselves look so much bigger
Everything needs to be cheaper
Everything needs to be quicker

I will follow. I will catch up
I will follow your prints in the snow

Time has learned to speak my tongue

How did I end up in here
And how will I get out, my dear?
My mind gets clear and suddenly there’s no more fear

I will follow. I will catch up
I will follow your prints in the snow
Track Name: The Death Of Miss Joanie
This morning I woke up
This morning I cried

Honey, you will live forever in my mind
But why can’t you stay here and live my live?
I never hurt you, I was never unkind
But you’re already leaving, even before I could arrive

Honey, won’t you sing me your song one last time?
Honey, won’t you sing it, please, for me?

Joanie, don’t go
Track Name: Rocksteady Heart
Desert highway
Good morning, sunshine
Concert Friday
One straight line
A few more miles
Airco and coke
Two bright smiles
One last smoke

Looking left
It’s just rock and sand
The right window’s showing
the same neglected lands

Shivering landscapes
Eyes slowly closing
Try not to let go
I’ll never quit smoking

I’m glad you’re with me
I’m glad you’re here
Where the storms meet my rock steady heart
I’m glad you’re with me
I’m glad you’re here
Where the rocks meet an unswerving beat

Early sunset
A mirror away
You never look back
You never pray
You tend to feel things before I do
All my belongings, they’re nothing of value

I’m glad you’re with me
I’m glad you’re here
Where the storms meet my rock steady heart
I’m glad you’re with me
I’m glad you’re here
Where the rocks meet an unswerving beat
Track Name: Darkness In Your Dreams
“Pain”, she wrote, “is a strange thing”
In the letter that she sent
“It gets to a place that you can’t really find”
She put her heart on the table
Took a plate and cutlery
And sigh as she’d been left behind

A long time ago they’d sing the future to each other
Now it’s hard to remember the lines
People would write out your life
The book’s still on the shelf
But those were other times

She said “I don’t know where the pain comes from
But I feel it late at night”
He said “try to sleep with the light on
It’ll make it easier to find darkness in your dreams”

He said that she would manage
And she believed every word.
Maybe that was somewhat naïve
But now there’s no way back.
The time that’s passed has passed
Just one direction home

She said “I don’t know where the pain comes from
But I feel it late at night”
He said “try to sleep with the light on
It’ll make it easier to find darkness in your dreams”
