ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The song came about when I reread Alice in Wonderland and thought that the experience of tumbling down the rabbit hole really is an initiation into adulthood. In my version, this process of initiation turns into an invocation of the Greek god of ecstasy, Dionysus. One version of Ablaze features female backing vocals which gives the song a dreamy, wistful quality. It really is a love song. The mastering was done by Grammy winner Adam Ryan (Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters) at Gateway Mastering in Portland, Maine." (BC Bogey in Interview with Music Now Magazine)

"One source of inspiration for me is classical mythology . . . and in Ablaze it mingles with personal observations and snippets of Alice in Wonderland. The lyrics of the first verse goes, 'I'm tumbling down another rabbit hole / They say that pride comes before the fall / What did I win? Less than I lost / So let it spin and let us count the cost' before it turns into a Dionysian love chant in the chorus: 'You and me / We'll set the world on fire / You and me / Ablaze with desire'. The last verse finally invokes the god of wine and ecstasy when it urges the listener 'to feast / On Dionysus' heart'. I would call the song's mood 'conspiratorial': it's a romantic little love tale urging listeners to transgress the boundaries set by society. It's about anti-compliance, and maybe also about anti-complacency: be radically true to yourself, follow your primal instincts and do what you feel is right." (BC Bogey in Interview with Skope Magazine)
