White Winds

„Die Entstehungszeit des Albums ‚White winds’ war eine Art kreativer Erntezeit. Wir waren durch die Reaktionen der ‚Aussenwelt’ etwas selbstsicherer und auch mutiger geworden, wohl auch etwas lockerer. Auch im Titel des Songs ‚Flight Feet & Root Hands’ (Flugfüsse und Wurzelhände) spiegelt unser Lebensgefühl; mit frei ‚fliegenden’ Füssen, die Hände tief in der Erde, Wurzeln schlagend.”
