about

A French-Vietnamese musician and composer, Camille Mai blends eccentric rhythms with jazz harmony and hip-hop lyricism.

"When I first moved to San Francisco, I used to jam with some hippie friends who'd been 'adopted' by our older friend Andy. He used to call us the "beautiful new children"—but behind our youthful and idealistic exteriors lived a world of mental turmoil..."

lyrics

We are no beautiful children
we are ridden with fear
and we'd be a field day for Freud
but last night, like all the beautiful children
have done for over 50 years
we gave our brains to the void

And I—I am lost in my own way
I have lost my true self
it's so hard to find the words

Ooh it's so hard to find the words
so painfully disconnected
I call my skin a border
I lay claim to my bones
and wait patiently for the next life
always asking for more than
the everything that's my home

And so today my spine is the bay bridge
25 vertebrae and
a million eyes on the hill
but though the movement's infernal
the world is quiet from Bernal
the world is completely still

And it's so hard to find the words...

No beautiful children
we are ridden with fear
and we'd be a field day for freud

And I- I am lost in my own way
I have lost my true self
it's so hard to find the words
