No Reason...no reason to go blind or to go furious No reason to go wild or to offend But I just did Got no reason...no reason to be hateful or to fight No reason to be dumb or to act shite But I just did Aaaahhhh I got no reason No reason to be happy or to smile No reason to laugh out or to make jokes But I just did I got no reason No reason for this choice but I just made it It’s my heart above my head you better take it Because I did it When I met you Aaaahhhh No reason no reason at all No reason no reason at all Why don’t you understand I got no reason on demand You better learn to live with it Because I did what I did No reason, no reason at all Why don’t you understand I got no reason on demand You better learn to live with it Because I did what I did

Lighting up a cigarette In my head Counting the ceiling cracks I’m waiting for another go into a flow I am dreaming every day In a way I am upholstering my own Thoughts that I am living in ... And giving in And tonight you fail, you fail, you fail Yes tonight you fail, you fail And tonight you fail, you fail, you fail Yes tonight you fail, you fail I’m waiting for another go In a show Right in the spotlights of your stage and I am qualified I never tried Pieces falling in to place In your face I am upholstering my own Thoughts that I am living in ... And giving in And tonight you fail, you fail, you fail Yes tonight you fail you fail And tonight you fail, you fail, you fail Yes tonight you fail you fail Spoken words: Yeah and tonight you’re gonna drop that mask of innocence because you’re gonna fail honey. And it’s okay, it’s okay to let yourself go once in a while, it’s okay to like this music for instance or to tap your feet on it or to dance. Yeah why not, come on let’s dance and smile to me and kiss me because tonight you’re gonna fail honey, you fail, tonight you’re gonna fail yeah and me too, I’m gonna fail too, We’re gonna fail. Let’s fail together!

The elevator stopped I was locked in to your fire The lights went out and I thought we couldn’t get much higher But then skin to skin Time to share Beating hearts Gasp for air I think I’m gonna loose control by sheer desire I don’t wanna stop You whisper in my ear. Skin to skin Love to share Isolated In mid-air And then we went back up and down And up And down And up And down And up Wohoooo Celebrating life

I met you on a beautiful Sunday April 25, 2010 and then again I felt alive It was warm outside since ages So warm that I could fry An egg on my black-chrome Chevy ‘59 Tudehtootiduh tudehtootiduh Tudehtooweeduh tudehtootiduh “It was a day that I never dared to dream of And babe you’re the queen of letting steam of Cause I never felt the same Yeah you really play the game It’s a fame how you whip the cream up And I cannot let it go It’s like a freight train running solo And I never realized that being empathized Could be such a fucking mind blow” It was warm outside since ages So warm that I could fry An egg on my black-chrome Chevy ‘59 aaahaaa There’s got to be something There’s got to be something There’s got to be something that I hold…

I noticed you before You’re slipping through backdoors, Into oblivion Nobody seems to know your name There’s no picture in your frame, Into oblivion When you decide to hide your tears And walk away with all your fear, Into oblivion Then no one listens on your way And when your last sigh fades away, Into oblivion I noticed you before Slipping through the door Into oblivion...

Kick off your new boots hit and run We’re heading southwards to the sun I don’t believe the state you’re in We’re going to leave it all behind We’re going to take some extra time You’re going to show your hidden mind So give me your cold hand off we go Time to leave this body blow show Melanie, who’s going to break your heart the next time? Melanie, who’s going to break your heart the next time? Yo... her name was Melanie And she was telling me a lot, that she really couldn’t appreciate the life that she has got, so she lived in a bubble for a couple of years. When things were getting down with a lot of bitter tears. And so she grabbed the bottle and she smoked a lot and when she couldn’t afford it then she took a shot. Things were getting worse again and again and on top of it all she met a trigger happy man. With a single shot he killed his enemy. I was afraid the next one is going to be my Melanie so I got to handle she deserves a better fate I got to save my Melanie because Melanie is great! Now bite the bullet before you lay Baby I keep the snakes away Maybe you hate me I do care but baby I love you Baby I’m fair We’re going to take some extra time You’re going to show your hidden mind So give me your cold hand off we go Time to leave this body blow show Melanie, who’s going to break your heart the next time? Melanie, who’s going to break your heart the next time? Kick off your new boots hit and run We’re heading southwards to the sun

It was quite a shock to me You seem as happy as can be Always Even though it is too late You keep your head up and you wait ...... Always Mind the gap four times a day You work your ass of so you stay Always They pull you up to knock you down Collecting thorns to cast your crown Always Waahooooo Realise it’s a tricky situation Realise it’s a tricky situation Mind the gap four times a day You work your ass of so you stay Always They pull you up to knock you down Collecting thorns to cast your crown Always

about

“High up in the attic in the middle of the night... a faint light”

Van Ooij (1970) grew up in the south of the Netherlands and was brought up around music. His father was a local folk singer and Joris had the privilege to try out all old and strange instruments his father made and gathered over the years. Van Ooij followed violin lessons and played a lot on the harmonium. From a young age he started to write his first songs, formed a group with his schoolmates and at the age of 13 they act on national Dutch TV. He bought his first synthesizer at his 15th birthday ( Korg ms10) and that seemed to be the start of experimenting and playing a lot with more ectronic sounds & instruments.
He started to write for theatre and in 1996 he co-wrote the soundtrack and leader for a 26 episodes Dutch tv series named “West-Zijde Posse”
With the urge to create and as a kind of escapism he founded Fodiator (after a genius of the flying fish family) in 2010. A melancholic blend of indie, pop, rock, folk and more....call it “commuter-pop”. His sound, made with all kinds of instruments in combination with his “falsetto” voice has a strong weakness... he often jokes.


Press & Support:
- 22 tracks Brussels:
“The things we learn while selecting these 22tracks! Apparently, a 'Fodiator' is a genius of the flying fish family. Next to that, it’s also a project started by songwriter Joris van Ooij in his attic. He’s an self-taught musician who creates his songs alone and then performs them with his Dutch - Belgian band. Van Ooij likes to create an atmospheric and melancholic blend of indie, pop & folk, that reminds us of what makes acts like Efterklang, Menomena and Guillemots so great. Great stuff for the winter, that is coming’’.

- Radio1 Belgium:
“Sometimes it is allowed to play plain pop music, so with this song by Fodiator. A rich layered sound and great story about the longing for the first sunny day of the season, told in just 2.24 minutes."

- 3voor12 :
"Joris van Ooij, musician behind Fodiator is offering his unpolished music, made on his attic, on the internet....We heard four quiet promising tracks that we hope will appear to hear on EP soon."

- Elite Muzik:
"I found a new record from Fodiator, an upcoming indie band out of Holland. The record is titled “No Reason”, and sound pretty dam good, give it a listen…"
