about

Vic Anselmo is a Latvian-born singer and songwriter living in Bochum, Germany.

Her stunning voice and gifted songwriting skills have made Vic Anselmo a notable alternative artist. Her sensual songs reflect the dynamics of her emotions.
Vic is an impressive performer and a charismatic presence on stage.
She is the first Latvian alternative female artist that became known outside the Baltic States.

Vic’s fascination with music began at a very early age. She started with traditional piano and vocal lessons, but began to write her own songs by the age of ten.
Her debut album “Trapped In A Dream” (2008) was chosen as Newcomer of the Month in Orkus! Magazine.
Vic’s second album “In My Fragile…“ (2011) brought her even more recognition and received an enthusiastic response by fans and music critics alike.

In recent years Vic was also involved in several interesting co-operations with the likes of Mick Moss (Antimatter), Anneke van Giersbergen (ex-The Gathering) and Duncan Patterson (ex-Anathema) amongst others.

In 2013 Vic Anselmo started working on her third release. In contrast to her first two albums, Vic and acclaimed Dutch producer Joost van den Broek approached the recording of “Who Disturbs The Water” in a more intimate manner. The piano and vocal parts were all done as one take and some subtle additional elements like strings and percussion were recorded afterward. The new album possesses a warmth that can be attributed to this recording setup.

Vic explains: “The whole recording and arranging process was really special. It was Joost’s idea to record me live and it enabled me to present my songs in such a beautiful and organic way.”

The songs on Vic´s new album deal with water as a symbol of transformation, adaptation, power and clarity. The album is dedicated to her late father, a Latvian seaman who died during the writing of “Who Disturbs The Water”.

In live performance, Vic sings and accompanies herself on piano as both a solo acoustic act and as a three piece band.

Track Name: Another Train
Another train

Should I have another lazy day?
I´ve been traveling the world all the time
The excitement never fades away
But the tiredness follows in line

I wish I didn´t carry the suitcase alone
Intuition tells me it is time to find home

Come on, take a ride on another train
you can have a rest on another day back home,
When you´ve got one...
Come on take a flight on another plane
You can sort your baggage another day back home,
When you´ve got one....

There is nothing like getting away
from the routine of life for a while
Those are memories that never fade,
even through the years they´re alive

But...I wish I didn’t carry my suitcase alone
Intuition tells me it is time to find home

Come on, take a ride on another train
you can have a rest on another day back home,
When you´ve got one...
Come on take a flight on another plane
You can sort your baggage another day back home,
When you´ve got one....

I will chase myself all around the world
Track Name: Flawless
Flawless

And so you dwell for good inside my head
Blinding my thoughts with images of the past
And I become addicted to them, the present´s drowning…

So you are a flawless part inside of me
But what if it is an illusion that comforts me?
My life depends on what you feel
The feeling, that I can’t reveal
Was I at least for once inside your mind?

You´re craving to embrace my dearest dreams
You paralyse my sense with your appeal
I have to speak my truth , so I can breathe…

You are a flawless part inside of me
And your presence always haunts me as you see
My life depends on what you feel
The feeling, that I can’t reveal
I wish that I could roam inside your mind

So you are a flawless part inside of me
But what if it is an illusion that comforts me?
My life depends on what you feel
The feeling, that I can’t reveal
Was I at least for once inside your mind?

I´m lost in the depth of what I feel
But every time you´re getting nearer
I know for sure - I am inside your mind…
Track Name: Say You
Say you

I know where all the treasures lie
I know where all the memories die
I know where all the prophecies are born and last

I know where all the secrets hide
I know where all the feelings cry
I know where all my life begins and fades away, and how it´s knocked down

Say you´ll never come again until it´s gone
Say you´ll never cross my way and make me fall
Say you´ll never fade away, ´til I forget you
Until our world comes crashing down...

I know where all the time goes by
I know where all the reasons lie
I know how I´d reflect and break myself in two, to make you happy...

Say you´ll never come again until it´s gone
Say you´ll never cross my way and make me fall
Say you´ll never fade away, ´til I forget you
Until our world comes crashing down...

Say you…
Say you…
Say you…
Come, say you…
Track Name: Who Disturbs The Water
Who disturbs the water

I found myself at the riverside and stepped into the water
The sun´s reflected all around in my surrounding view
I kept on staring into the stream, which kept on flowing farther.
With one question in my mind and so it went

What goes around comes around with a revealing sound
On the ground it feels different than in the flow...

Chorus:
Who disturbs the water?
ultimate truth glows in my veins…
Who disturbs the water?
drown in the reflection of my own self…

I feel the stream embracing me, defining my direction
If I didn´t move my body, would I simply join the flow?
It feels relaxing for some time to share this grown connection
But when it´s time to reach the ground, I´ll force myself to go

What flows around flows around, may it never bound
to the ground or whatever comes your way...

Chorus:
Who disturbs the water?
ultimate truth glows in my veins…
Who disturbs the water?
drown in reflection of my own self

Dissolving heartfirst in the flow
Embracing the world and letting go …
Track Name: Holy Ground
Holy ground

A Southern breeze allured you onto this ship
Now are you ready to forget your motherland?
Head heart blind, leaving yourself behind
You´re diving fully into the vortex of your lust

You´re falling into the waves of black, you fall…
You´re falling down....

Chorus:
And when you reach my holy ground
You´ll fall asleep and stay forever
The wind keeps blowing round and round
One last dance, one last dance...

Farewell land! Kissing goodbye the sand
The sun, one last time seen, you leave it out of sight
Willingly stepping into the trap
You are too blind to see – the choice is inside your mind!!

You´re falling into the waves of black, you fall
You´re falling down....

Chorus:
And when you reach my holy ground
You´ll fall asleep and stay forever
The wind keeps blowing round and round
One last dance, one last dance...
Track Name: Every Time You Come Around
Every time you come around

My head is spinning at the speed of the light, over and over again
Love and anger keep on fighting their way through my veins
I feel the fire rising right to the top of my hell-burning throat
The tears are flowing with the smile on my face, while I´m singing this song

Chorus:
Cause every time you come around, you bring all the dead memories back
Every time you come around
Cause every time you come around, you make all the bad memories go dead
Every time you come around

Insanity, its just a matter of time ´til she´s my family
I blindly keep on throwing the sparks of pain, ´til it´s too black to see
I keep on waking in the same funny dream - night by night
It´s you and me standing right in the midst of the circle of fire, oh

Chorus:
Cause every time you come around, you make all the bad memories go dead
Every time you come around
Cause every time you come around, you bring all the dead memories back
Every time you come around,
you come around, you come around…

Instrumental

Cause every time you come around, you make all the bad memories go dead
Every time you come around
Cause every time you come around, you bring all the dead memories back
Every time you come around,
Don´t come around
I hate that sound!!
Track Name: Cody
Cody

Cody, I left your bag on the bed
Cody, I can no longer forget
Freezing the tears in my eyes is just killing me…

Cody, why cannot you understand?
Cody, why don´t you act like a man?
Playing your games is my curse, it can´t get any worse
When the chaos is rising, rising...

Cody, why can´t you see how I feel?
Cody, the pain you give me is too real
Broken illusions of the past rage in me

Cody, when will you dare to come out?
Cody, tell me what´s burning inside?
All this confusion you bring, make me feel so thin, makes me just lose myself

Cody, you are so lost in your thoughts
I tried to help you, but it got only worse
I hope you find what is wrong, it’s time for me to let go, it´s time to end this suffering, suffering´s gone

Cody , I am alive just like you
Cody, I had a vision of you
But you were into your game
til my trust washed away
now I´ m feeling so empty, empty....
Track Name: My Every Breath
My every breath

Let me share a story from my life,
Keeps you wake awake until the morning light comes
You have entered it, without a doubt
Very brightly smiling with your arms wide open

Tender, beautiful and scared…

I´ve been through regret and painful truth
I´ve felt countless times the way the heart breaks
There was time I stopped believing in the good
But before I gave my dreams up, you came to me

Glowing with eternal light
Turning Earth into paradise

You can sense the passion on my skin
You can feel the tension in the air fulfilling
Now can I let go of all my fears?
With every single part of me I feel your being

Too close to run
What have you done?

Let me tell the story of my life
Keeps you wake until the morning light shows
You have entered it without a doubt
Very brightly smiling with your arms wide open

Calming, beautiful and scared…
You are my every breath…
Track Name: Daylight
Daylight

You flashed in my life
Leaving me standing paralysed
Not even knowing what you have done

I stay in disguise
Observing your tempting mystery
I stand in the corner, not too close, but thrilled

For all my drowning and hoping for more
I´m too restrained to tell what I´m thinking of

I can see the daylight in your eyes
So warming and obscure
I can feel the lightning through my spine
When you´re standing close
I can see the daylight in your eyes, piercing through the dark of the night
I can see the daylight, but you don´t have to know...

What´s on your mind
should I be honest or let go?
Walking outside your precious aura

For all my burning and craving for more
I´m too restrained to share what I´m thinking of

I can see the daylight in your eyes
So warming and obscure,
I can feel the lightning through my spine
When you´re standing close
I can see the daylight in your eyes, piercing the dark of the night
I can see the daylight, but you don´t have to know...
Track Name: Dream
Dream

Wave this stressful day goodbye
Now it´s time for you to fly to the fantasies inside your mind...
Let your pillow be a bird
taking you to skies above, walking on the rooftops and the clouds

Skate the surface of the moon, scream your loudest from Saturn
Come dream...dream...

Save the world from evil ghosts, vampires, zombies and green trolls
Throw a party in your spaceship halls
Travel through space and time; Let all worries stay behind
In this dreamworld you´re the one to rule

You can fly above the sea, waterfalls and mountains free,
Come dream
dream...
