Raven’s Jig – Petit Chat Clandestin (off-vocal)

Lullaby of Deserted Hell is a waltz which is sure to stick to the mind of Touhou fans. The slightly cloudy, majestic and mysterious piano played by Onne inspired a specific painting in our mind, an alternate universe with a little girl with red hair, trapped in a cold Renaissance castle and bound by etiquette …

Raven’s Jig – The Simple Life I want to have

Nostalgia, anyone? If you remember playing the original Sims game and spending hours building a house so you could hear the lovely music that went along, then this song is our present to you.

Raven’s Jig – Daylight Express to Lutz

After Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack “Interstellar” lost the 2015 Academy Award for Best Original Music Score to Alexandre Desplat’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel”, Onne (a fervent Zimmer fan) came to Agathe to complain about it.

Raven’s Jig – Primavera (on-vocal)

“Primavera” translates to “spring”, yet many have attributed feelings of melancholy to this Ludovico Einaudi classic (incidentally the first one we arranged as Raven’s Jig). Spring is supposed to be a time of new life, a time of fresh energy. Indeed, Ludovico’s Primavera sounds exactly like what you’d expect from the beginning of a Hollywood …

Raven’s Jig – Ravens in Paradise

Released in the peaceful days between late spring and early summer, this song was intended to sound as sunny as bright blue skies. Much like someone would rely on classical music or golden oldies to relax, we decided to bring our own, raven-marked lyrics to a classic from 50s musical Kismet, itself inspired by Borodin’s …
