Daria Kulesh presents the new single – Golden Apples
Watch the music video: youtu.be/Y0nRxRpyCU4

Produced by Jason Emberton, featuring Jonny Dyer & Tom Kitching

The Firebird of Russian folklore represents pure unchained desire, pleasure without consequence. She flies into the Tsar’s garden at night to steal, uncaught and unpunished, his most precious treasure – the magical golden apples. The Tsar sends his sons to catch the mystery thief; but the Firebird’s enchantment sends them into deep sleep, night after night. From the Firebird’s uncluttered perspective, what’s the point of all that effort to guard something you possess, but never dare to enjoy? We all have hungry Firebirds held captive in our rib cages, desires we will never release, perhaps not even confess to. If we were to release them, all at once, the world would catch alight!

Golden Apples is the second single (after Vasilisa - youtu.be/kH3AhBkIaYc) from Daria’s highly anticipated third album – Earthly Delights, due on 1st June 2019. The new record is a grateful and playful celebration and exploration of human nature: love, desire, duende, curiosity, ambition and other urges that drive us, both physical and spiritual. The games we play…

lyrics

Golden Apples

Apples are the sweetest
Past the midnight hour, my dear
To your guarded garden
Every night I fly, my dear
But soundly you are sleeping
And you will never see
How I steal your apples
From the golden tree!

My feathers are the brightest
Hotter than the sun, my dear
I’m a greedy creature
Burning with desire, my dear
But soundly you are sleeping
And you will never see
How I steal your apples
From the golden tree!

Chorus:
Golden apples
At your fingertips
Dreams of sweetness
Hot upon your lips
But you are sleeping
You will never see
You will never catch me
Stealing from your tree!

I’m a simple creature
Burning clear and bright, my dear
There’s no guilt or conscience
Clouding my delight, my dear
But soundly you are sleeping
And you will never see
How I steal your apples
From the golden tree!

Chorus

Did you know? My sister
Is captive in your chest, my dear
Raging in your rib cage
She will know no rest, my dear
But soundly you are sleeping
And you will never see
Woe be to my sister
You’ll never set her free!

Chorus
