about

A world traveller, and an explorer within herself, Australian Indie Pop Artist Kirbanu weaves the human experience from despair to euphoria, into beautifully uncomfortable songs.

No shallow waters exist as she takes you on a painfully honest journey of self-inquiry exploring inner struggles, existential questions, change making, as well as celebrating this perfectly imperfect life.

In her new EP “Echo Chamber” Kirbanu examines the metaphorical thought and social bubble we find ourselves in, which limits our ideas, perceptions and perspectives. She touches on how we are shaped by this experience as well as how we can transcend it.

Track Name: Running
Lyrics:
Born into a neon life
Flashing screens in overdrive
Baptised in urgency
From our first breath

Growing up deadlines
Become the goals before our eyes
Judged on our proficiency
In this trepid race

I’m running
You’re running
Watch the world spin on its heel
As time stands still for no one
I’m running
You’re running
We’re hamsters in a wheel of lies
That time belongs to no-one

A perch in society
Proves your pedigree
The higher up the ladder
The more your worth

Numbers form the lines
That dictate our lives
Slaves to the pressure
We forget our place
Track Name: The Ghost of Human Decency
Do you feel the ghost of human decency?
She’s buried beneath veils of ignorance, scratching to be set free

Hello? She cries, tearing at her insides, rumbling like a vocano’s wife.
Hello? Do you hear? Is she lost to our deaf ears?

Fed on a diet of violence amplified
Lie upon lie, swallow every word
Fear’s a weapon to turn hearts blind
Forged by its grasp
We’re soldiers in their graveyard

Why do people insist on being so cruel?
We occupy a severed world, faceless screens without rules

Hello? It’s the truth, the victim on the other side’s no different to you
Hello? Do you hear? Are we lost through our deaf ears?
Track Name: I'll Take My Leave Here
These shoes don’t fit anymore
Their stale seams linger on the floor

Been too long in this place
Bound by hope and promises made
Every time declines,
Through change
I’m not the same

I’ll take my leave here
I’ll take my leave, from paths outgrown
I’ll take my leave here
Carving it new through the unknown

What’s passed served me well
Framed lessons that were invaluable
Change stirs like the sea
Moments fade
I’m not the same
Track Name: At The Edge of Me
I’ve been hiding from the choice in my life,
waiting for the storm to pass
But its tailwind buries me alive
and chokes me in that grasp

I can't move. I can't breathe.

Here I stand on the point of breaking,
every choice cuts in deep
I’m afraid to take one
Im at the edge of me

As I gaze out from the rubble of my mind
a sickened fear takes shape
I’m paralysed by the ticking hand of time
and a desperate need to slow change

I can't move. I can't breathe.

Here I stand on the point of breaking,
every choice cuts in deep
I’m afraid to take one
I’m at the edge of me
Here I stand on the point of breaking,
every turn twists differently
I’m afraid to move forward
I’m at the edge of me
Track Name: Who We Show
Daylight trickles through the curtain blind
Our eyes cast it back

Not ready, not ready to let this in
It’s too late to begin

We’re wearing masks, carved of our skin,
frail glass to shroud ourselves within

Fighting, falling, stumbling through the dark,
we shield our fragile hearts
Lost to stories and lies that rule the lines we know,
masks are who we show

Lost in motion we pass each other by
Silently moving shadows in the night

Not ready, not ready to share the depth inside
As time etches out the statue of our lives

We’re wearing masks, carved of our skin,
frail glass to shroud ourselves within
Track Name: Because You See Me
Loving you is one of the best things
Holding you is one of the best things in my life

Was lost till you found me, shut down, unhappy,
everything was dripping in shades of grey
Till your charming heart took mine to the start
and showed me life could be a magic place

All that I am, who I can be,
comes through you seeing me
All of my fear, that uncertainty,
melts in your heart watching me
All that I am, who I could be comes
because you see me

Being loved by you is one of the best things
Being held you is one of the best things in my life

The moments together, spent lost in each other
Just being, letting the world slip away
I’ve never been so sure of someone before,
you help me to be a better person everyday
