about

Philippine singer-songwriter Clementine celebrates his 10th year as a recording artist by releasing his first solo album “The World Is Your Oyster”, an album that further presents his growth and maturity as an artist. Calling the project Dragonfly Collector, Clementine demonstrates how much he has spread his wings since writing and recording for Orange & Lemons and The Camerawalls.

His lifelong love affair with The Beatles and The Smiths is clear, but these new songs reveal his affinity for indie folk styling similar to the sound of The Decemberists or Fleet Foxes.

The album features ten eclectic, thought-provoking songs that transport the listener from the mundane, workaday world to an intriguing journey into the unusual through lilting melodies and clever wordplay. But under the playfulness is a deep, lingering message about life, love and death that makes this album an inspiring find to be listened to over and over again.

Track Name: The World Is Your Oyster
A touch of madness
Once in a while
Is what we need
A little faith in what’s dark
What we cannot foresee

That’s how we make or break
Our dreams, and color our shadows
So I say unto you,
Cast your fears and welcome desire

The world is your oyster
Solve et coagula
You know what you want
Come and open the door
The world is your oyster
Sing the song in your heart
Don’t let anyone, or anything shut you up

There is a dark place in your soul
Be careful what you think
You might be asking for the wrong things

A touch of madness
Once in a while
Is what we need
A little faith in what’s dark
What we cannot foresee

That’s how we make or break
Our dreams, and color our shadows
So I say unto you,
Cast your fears and welcome desire

The world is your oyster
Solve et coagula
You know what you want
Come and open the door
The world is your oyster
Sing the song in your heart
Don’t let anyone, or anything shut you up

When you think there is no hope, dare yourself to find some
Life is nothing but a joke, laugh and cry while it lasts
Track Name: Dragonfly Collector
Move in all directions
And see beyond the mundane
Into the vastness of our own minds
If the eyes could speak, what would they say?

Live without regrets
Leave nothing to be desired
Aware of what you are, who you are,
Where you are and what you want
If each moment can breathe, what life will they sustain?

Here comes the dragonfly collector
One with water, one with air
In my darkest moment
She calls on me to say a prayer
In quiet contemplation
Life enfolds, illusions break
Lightness settles in
The colors change

Live without regrets
Leave nothing to be desired
Aware of what you are, who you are,
Where you are and what you want
If each moment can breathe, what life will they sustain?

Here she comes...
The dragonfly collector
Here she comes...
Reading my reflections
