Scalper returns with the 'Want' EP just in time for the Holiday season.

The new batch of songs will be released with a stunning video for the song 'Rooks Ravens Magpies Crows' the leading single for these four unreleased tracks.

Some of the songs were created in France while Scalper was on his French Tour in Spring (Northern Hemisphere) 2017.

Videos were filmed and finalised in Nancy, France, directed by Romain Zawadski.

This new release by Scalper on Quixote r.p.m (FR) rises from under the waters bringing us his unique musical style, social commentary and observation of the self.

'Rooks Ravens Magpies Crows' appeals to the essence of what humanity is meant to be, a place of love and compassion. Not a place where fear prevents one from imagining a better place beyond and crippling positivity with the illusion of certainty and doom.

'Want' invokes the energy of the Universe and all its creative forces...but one should be wary of what one may desire as it may not be what one may need... WANT shall be provided.

‘Strange People’ hands out a mirror to whoever thinks everyone else out of line. There are two sides to the window of judgement.

‘Cold Castles’, are those places within where one does not feel anything anymore except a ghostly numbness. The places where knowing anything is really knowing nothing at all.

Track Name: Rooks Ravens Magpies Crows
I seek no heaven for the fear of hell
All I want is of Love to smell

Amazing dreams amazing waking
Clear thoughts amidst embroiled in a duel with a dragon
In a dungeon
It’s myself that I constantly bludgeoned
Ruthless enemy I created
Grow my friend appetite craving
Digest them all everything edible
Don’t hate no one but truly hate them all

Rooks Raven Magpies Crows
I seek no heaven for the fear of hell
All I want is of Love to smell

Not myself I been
been not myself
Unbeknown to myself
Slow execution executing myself
Myself me, me myself and I
All together now so now shall see
I been ravaging we’ve been killing for so long
Droplet diamonds weaving spells
Wake me fresh the dew morning smells
Track Name: Cold Castles

We can’t all cry but today I cried
Most times don’t dare to step from this numbness
Arid eyes and the tearless blinking
Silence silenced my sense of self
Sensing selfish silent sickness
It never made sense when we had no sense
New found senses still make no sense
Infidel in the infidels eyes
Infidel lies infidel dies
I can’t make sense of this senseless sentence
Electrics charged for shock interventions
Gaseous chambers smallpox blankets
Outright murder under the carpets
Hands off for the thief
Castrate the rapists
Tendrills sprawling you may not escape it
Living in the belly in the bile you’ll face it
Tongue to the back of the mouth
You can taste it

What you know of what you know?
You know nothing for nothing you saw
You saw nothing for nothing to see
It’s cold in here it’s cold right here
It’s cold in here it’s cold right here

Verse 2:
Watch it crumble as proudly as it stood
It seems impossible but we’ll meet soon
But before this. we must suffer the stillness
We can will this, let it soothe
Medicate them maladies that betray us
Killing me and killing you
Track Name: Strange People

Strange People
With strange ways
They speak strange
It’s so strange what they say


Don’t trust strangers, don’t trust them strangers
Strangely strange
Something strangely familiar none the less so strange
Look how they eat so strange
See how they dress so strange
Explain yourself, explain me this
Why you so strange?
I’m unsure, this behavior strange
Strange behavior so strange to me
Please help me they're strange

Verse 2:

This strange fear contagious plagueing me for ages
I’m the strangest being ever created
Walking this place so beautiful I desecrate it
I’m a stranger even to my strange faces
I find myself strangely racing in these strange human races.
