Name translation: Crickets
Recorded in 2014.


شبی بود و نسیمی
سیاهی بود و ستاره ای
من بود و تویی
زمزمه ای

شهر خاموش دور از ما
خسته بودیم از دنیا
خسته تر از ما

لا لا لا...


تویی اون که من دارم
من کی ام من کجام
اگه تو یار منی
گوش کن به جیرجیرکا

لا لا لا ...



There was night
and a breeze
There was darkness
and a star
There was me and there was you;
a whisper

The silent town was far from us
We were tired of the world
but more tired than us
were the crickets

La La La...

The crickets

You are the one that I have
Who am I? Where am I?
If you are with me
then listen to the crickets

La La La...

The crickets

Doing super lo-fi bedroom-recording since 2012, Rustic Hilltop Inn is a one-man project by Arshia Eghbali from Tehran. "Writing songs and recording them in a sketchy manner is a kind of memoir writing for me." he says about his music "Each of them punctuating a period of my life."
