Make Waves 06:22
Lights are out No one around As I escape time Something so pure Rains from the sky Can’t you feel it? A sound in the distance A breeze of fresh air Pulls me away Fast as a leaf Tumbling down When you catch me Does anyone know How far we will swim How deep will we sink? Right to remember Left to create As we make waves When will we know How to let go What we will be? When will they see The water in me? Falling like snowflakes Up and away Can’t you see them? They show us the way But I’m just running I’m just swimming I’m just drowning When will we know How to let go How to be free? When will you see The water in me A fool for believing It’s all written down Where we end We’ll begin Eyes closed It’s okay The day will come Eyes open Let’s make waves Let’s go home

Now that it’s done I can’t sit still It’s all I’ve been dreaming of and more Pages to read Fires to start Numbers to count All to crash down my wall And now that it is done We go high above the sun And love there’s no need to stay Just flow Just follow And you You moved me You moved me around and around And you You moved me You moved me around and around But You’re Not ready for me So start walking Start going, leaving And be fast You’ll find the truth soon And it won’t be good no Just run and Free yourself Yes be scared It’s going to haunt you And ruin you And leave blue Don’t reach for the sun dear You’ll melt and disappear Nobody will find you Nobody will know I’m falling I’m falling Please help me I’m falling You You moved me You moved me around and around And you You moved me You moved me around and around And you You you You moved me So start walking Start going Leaving and Make it fast You’ll find the truth soon And it won’t be good no Just run and Free yourself Yes be scared It’s going to haunt you And ruin you And leave you blue Don’t reach for the sun dear You’ll melt and disappear Nobody will find you Nobody will know

about

This album is called Gravitas as it marks the moment where the band decided to clean its slate of the ideas and phrases floating around for 8 years since its inception. The album varies between melancholic and noisy to hopefull and jazzy. To us, it's the weight each song carries that binds it all together. We hope you listen and enjoy our music.

Most songs are instrumental and those have texts accompanying them.
________________________________________________________

The foundation of A Fool’s Errand was laid in 2011 after a group of five friends wanted to explore music further mostly through long jam sessions. The line-up changed throughout the years as did the sound of the band, with Willem Schuurmans (guitar) and Alwin van der Ven (bass & trumpet) as the core of the band. Eventually, in 2014, they found a perfect match in Albert Schuurmans (brother of Willem) as a drummer, mostly remaining a trio throughout the years. With the addition of Fabian Voskuil on guitar in 2017 a group of like-minded musicians found each other that shared a more common ethos towards music. This was the start of the current A Fool’s Errand where instead of ever evolving songs, more songs were set in stone. This led to their first EP ‘Asfaltpuin / Foxboy’ in 2017 and their debut album ‘Gravitas’ in 2019.
