about

After his release of two EP’s in the last two years, Roel Gosto Vermeer has obviously stepped up his game. With ‘Memory Ivy’ he has really put his whole heart into it. And that heart is pomping, breathing, shaking and very much alive. His music is intense and profound, dark and light-hearted. You want to start dancing and close your eyes and lay down in the marram grass at the same time. GOSTO picks you up and let’s you float on a nostalgic, almost psychedelic trip. He unites contradictions to a warm, uplifting mix that leaves nobody unmoved.

Inspired by musicians such as Flying Lotus, James Blake, Thom Yorke and Jeff Buckley, GOSTO succeeds to combine a variety of styles into a whole new authentic sound. Underneath the first introduction you’ll find warm bases, raw beats, deep synths and pure soul, all interconnected by the dark, almost hypotic voice of Roel.
This multi-instrumentalist writes, sings, composes and produces all his songs himself. Supported by his strong lyrics and talented live band, GOSTO guides you through his world: his travels, his chaos and is unconditional love for music.

Track Name: The More We Know
I welcome you, to the world I live in
Where time looks like a gun,
that postpones pulling the trigger
I welcome you, to dig into the ground
As long as it's your own grave

I welcome you, to the world I live in
Where time looks like a bomb,
where only we can fit in
Don't fool yourself,
and don't you fool the rest,
As long as it's your own grave

And the more we know,
the more we know
The less gold glows,
the less gold glows

And the more we know,
the more we know
The less gold glows,
the less gold glows

I welcome you, to the world I live in
Where time looks like a bomb,
where only we can fit in
Don't fool yourself,
and don't you fool the rest,
As long as it's your own grave

And the more we know,
the more we know
The less gold glows,
the less gold glows
And the more we know,
the more we know
The less gold glows,
the less gold glows
Track Name: Tell Me What You're Made Of
You will save yourself with anyone
You find yourself in a shield of iron

Whatever you do keeps me waiting
Whatever you do keeps me awake

So tell me what you're made of
‘Cause that’s what I’m afraid of
Tell me what you're made of
That’s what I’m afraid of,
…is what I’m afraid of.
Track Name: I Don't See
Even though I moved on,
doesn’t mean that it is over,
the moment it is over
When I look back at us,
I will always remain peaceful

Now that it’s over,
doesn’t mean that I forgot you
Only told you,
that you can call me again

I don't see, I don't see,
what you learned from loving me
I don't see, I don't see,
what I learned

When I look back at us, don't regret it
I reject it, but wish I could protect it
I like to look back us; I defend it
It's not what I expected

Now it's over, doesn't mean that, it is over
Only told you, you can't call me again

I don't see, I don't see,
what you learned from loving me
I don't see, I don't see,
what I learned
Track Name: Ivy
There's a twist in my head
Never thought I would see the truth
Wanna lose and let go
Double taking
Remembering the taste

Are these veins beneath my skin?

Don’t you think that,
it’s twisted
I think it’s twisted
Tied up in memory-ivy
Growing inside me
Don’t you think that,
it’s twisted
I think it’s twisted
Veins of memory-ivy
Look how you tied me

Didn’t get the tattoo
Permanence was on you
I changed
Still the frames filled the walls
I just waited for the sun,
to bleach them all

And the time flew,
like snowbirds in June

Are these veins
Are these veins,
Are these veins beneath my skin

Don’t you think that,
it’s twisted
I think it’s twisted
Tied up in memory ivy
Growing inside me
Don’t you think that,
it’s twisted
I think it’s twisted
Veins of memory ivy
Look how you tie me
Track Name: You Can Make Me Feel Bad
You can make me feel bad,
if you want to
I don't need,
those things you said I was
I can live on my own

There's a place,
for us in the real world
You can make me feel bad,
if you want to
I don't need,
those things you said I want
I can live on my own

There's a place,
for us in the real world
You can make me feel bad,
if you want to
You can make me feel bad
Track Name: Don't Call
Don't eat me,
I've been poisoned
Plant a tree for me,
so I can rest in the shade
Will I confess to the unknown?
Or will I stay for way too long?

Don't call to get me over,
if you want to run
We can't hide from the sun
Don't call to get me over,
because you don't give a damn
Don't call to get me over

I can't recall what I long for
Now the truth is there, but I’m not sure
Give me some shade, so I can see
How you feel towards me

Don't call to get me over
Don't call the to get me here
Don't call to get me over,
‘cause you don't give a damn
Don't call

Don't call to get me over,
if you want to run
We can't hide from the sun
Don't call to get me over,
if you want to run
Don't call,
because you don't give a damn
Track Name: Turn Off The Light
If I go out alone
See it all the time
People that I want to know
Throw them a dime
Put myself at risk
Put myself in danger
When I get hung up,
hung up on a stranger

I fall in love, so easily in love
I fall in love, so easily, so easily
It never stops,
it never gets me high enough
I fall in love, so easily in love

Maybe I’m a faker
Maybe I’m the one
Hidden in the make up,
for when you come
I smile all the time
Looking like a clown
Look at all the faces,
Too many to count

I fall in love, so easily in love
I fall in love, so easily, so easily
It never stops,
it never gets me high enough
I fall in love, so easily in love

Step into the darkness,
queen of the night
Master of the drama,
turn out the light

I fall in love, so easily in love
I fall in love, so easily, so easily
It never stops,
it never gets me high enough
I fall in love, so easily in love
Track Name: Lovely Lady
Life is a time bomb
Where did our time run?
Seconds have turned in to tears
No one knows where,
to look when you’re there
Gazing down at their feet

I’ll catch you later in life
I’ll call you later my wife
Where do you go when you leave?

Lovely lady,
you’ve been on my mind lately
Lovely lady,
please get home safely

“Fool, Fool, Fool”

Guess I’m a fool to
let you slip through
Let your lips lead to me

I’ll catch you later in life
I’ll call you later my wife
Where do you go when you leave?

Lovely lady,
you’ve been on my mind lately
Lovely lady,
Please get home safely
Track Name: My Bad
Don't you want to sacrifice
Don't you want to free yourself
Don't you need,
to enjoy the time you breath
Don't you wanna live

Oh you,
coming from the flip side
Yea you
open up your mind

(no more, my love, no more)

Can't you see the beauty of the light
Don't you want to travel through the night
Would you be caught up in a haze
Amazed by solitude and amazed by grace

Oh you,
Coming from the flip side
Yea you,
open up your mind
Track Name: Time For Me
It's hard to find, what's hard to see
The dust, the light, my memory
Time alone, and time to think
without smoking, whitout a drink.
Wanna stop, its a lie.
We've got to quit, before we die

We wanna live so, we fool hourselves
Don't you deceive, somebody else
We wanna live so, we fool hourselves
don't you deceive, somebody else

While still young and free,
time alone, and time for me
We've got to choose, our way to loose this
A way to loose…

We wanna live so, we fool ourselves
don't you deceive, somebody else
We wanna live so, we fool ourselves
don't you deceive, somebody else
