about

Something capable of being solved, imagined, invented—this is the meaning of the term Devisable, the title of the debut album by PELTZER, the Lisbon-based electronic music duo comprised of musicians Rui Gaio and Cató Calado.


Devisable was recorded between September 2013 and April 2016 at the Nascer do Som Studios in Lisbon and features special guest appearances by Gomo, Anthony Patrick Pickering, Paulo Barreto, Lito Pedreira, Nuno Barreiro and Miguel Urbano. But in essence, it is the intensive collaboration between the duo PELTZER and renowned producer Francisco Rebelo that gives the album its resonance and strength.


The common ground is the true secret of Devisable: sophisticated pop, marked by impressionistic and sometimes dark, apocalyptic lyrics that address the ever-present themes of our existence—love, freedom, happiness, absence, and mortality.

Track Name: Break Lance
Maybe you will never feel good.
Try to understand the pain in your heart.
There you have your pink clouds
And the darken stations, broken,
Hear them howl!

Were you loving under a spell?
Are you afraid under your bed?
Wake up to the end!

Will you start to fake now?
Trying to hide a world on fire I see in your eyes.

Were you loving under a spell?
Are you afraid?
Over your bed I’ll wake up to the end!
Track Name: BSpit in bed
Why are you so still,
getting one foot tall?
You need changes on your soul.

Did you hear the sound
as quiet turns loud?
And it feels as hopeless as it always does.

What day is this we’re supposed to see?
Waking up too fast …
You... we’re counting on your loss!

Tell me when to stop!
Tell me when to stop!
I need to be kind
but trying to stop is not enough.

And they’re angry 'cause I don’t know what to do!
And they dare ask me?
Oh, I don’t know what to do!
If they dare ask me I won't know what to do!

When they dare ask me I won't know what to do!

Could it be?
We’re happy little lovers!
Could it be?
Just happy little lovers!
Track Name: Motion
Here, take control of it!
Take it by yourself to the animal act,
it folds you in time!
Believes and feels,
believes in faults!
I need change for the mother that gives an education.
You need to talk about the animal nation!
Name your love The King!
And take control and say,
just say “you feel old but you´re wiser than the hunter!”
Keep the cold in and keep them calling for more!

Always talk about the things that bring you summer.
Always talk about the things that you can't break.
Always talk about the things that bring you summer.
Always talk about the things that you can't break.
Always talk about the things that bring you summer.
Always talk about the things that you can't break.
Track Name: NCF
If this was the morning
I would wake up beside you.
With kisses I’m saying
“It would save my soul to see you.”

If this was the morning
I would wake up beside you.
With kisses I’m saying
“It would save my soul to see you.”

Pills… starting a fight… a cut in the face… i'm still alive!
Pills… starting a fight… a cut in the face… i'm still alive!
Pills… starting a fight… a cut in the face… i'm still alive!


‘cause we have the soul of the believers!
We have the soul!
Yes, we have the soul of the believers!

If this was the morning
I would wake up beside you.
With kisses I’m saying
“It would save my soul to see you.”

Pills… starting a fight… a cut in the face… i'm still alive!
Pills… starting a fight… a cut in the face… i'm still alive!
Pills… starting a fight… a cut in the face… i'm still alive!
Pills… starting a fight… a cut in the face… i'm still alive!
Pills… starting a fight… a cut in the face… i'm still alive!
Pills… starting a fight… a cut in the face… i'm still alive!
Track Name: Free the free
In the bubble of love where everything is free,
they've got so many things to call you and me,
for loving each other so endlessly.

In the bubble of love you’re getting older,
to see all that you want … I’ll let you go!

In the bubble of the free they´re selling freedom
but all you want is a song, all you want is a way of getting out.
In the bubble of the free they´re selling freedom
but all you want is a song, all you want is a way of getting out.

If you misheave I will feel darker!
Everyone else thinks it’s time to change.
If you misheave I will feel darker!
Everyone else thinks it’s time to change.


´til the confirmation... take control,
stay down here, this song’s about it.
In the mess then all the love went down.
We’ll talk about it, we talked about it!


In the bubble of the free they´re selling freedom
but all you want is a song, all you want is a way of getting out.
In the bubble of the free they´re selling freedom
but all you want is a song, all you want is a way of getting out.

If you misheave I will feel darker!
Everyone else thinks it’s time to change.
If you misheave I will feel darker!
Everyone else thinks it’s time to change.


If you misheave I will feel darker!
Everyone else thinks it’s time to change.
If you misheave I will feel darker!
Everyone else thinks it’s time to change.
If you misheave I will feel darker!
Everyone else thinks it’s time to change.

Track Name: Quinado (feat. Nuno Barreiro)
O vento segue mas sempre quinado
e é por dentro que encontro o alento de rir
da má sorte que passa por mim,
que eu nasci do género canário,
óxido de morte que senti dosear!

O tonto corre mas sempre guinado
e assustado não bebo sedento de dôr.
Vejo o corpo arder no canal,
que eu nasci com o crânio rasgado,
áspero de um corte que não pude evitar.

Mas não vi nada demais aqui,
só o pó que há-de vir!

O velho foge mas sempre virado
e não consigo entender porque tremo no fim.
Quando o mestre não teme por mim
que eu nasci com os olhos vendados,
vícios da má sorte que me custa entregar.

Pinga o sangue de um cano furado
e como sempre não mexo uma palha por ti.
Deixo o dedo apontado na ferida.
Adormeço assim destapado,
não é que me importe nunca mais acordar!

Mas não vi nada demais aqui,
só o pó que há-de vir,
e um dó de sentir que eu não senti.
Track Name: Violette
I'm trying hard to understand just what you want ...
But I've realized what you've done.

I try not to get aroused by all those girls that I see,
they’re moving in such a way as if they were looking for me.

Here with me, understanding what you want.
Love, you used to see!
What's the story of your hole?

You found out I was excited, started texting and calling.
I used to wonder in your sex but now your changing your colors.

Here with me, understanding what you want.
Love, you used to see!
What's the story of your hole?
What's the story of your hole?
What's the story of your hole?

Here with me, understanding what you want.
Here with me, understanding what you want.

You might as well get aroused by all those girls that you see.
They may be walking this way but they’re not looking for me.

Here with me, understanding what you want.
Leave me be and I'll take care of what you want!

Love, you used to see!
What's the story of your hole?

You will see, I’ll take care of what you want.
You will see, I’ll take care of what you want.
Track Name: All this time
Tried a conversation
‘cause I didn’t wanna see you go.
I try to forget you!

Connect all the words you know
and all your imagination!
Follow, follow, follow!

And it takes all this time.
I wanna die!
Fake all you can,
but not this time.

Gone … I’ve gone out to see you,
but I think you’ve been fine
for so long.

Reasons? I’ve reasons to get it.
I'm going up town
to temptation!

To exchange all good times,
I’ll shine a light.
She, like all times,
must be gone!


(Write the lyrics in her view…)
(the Lyrics don’t express Rui´s mind)
(it´s a pop song)
(we´re almost getting there)
Track Name: Them
What kind of fight is chasing with a gun all those kids?
They’re in their world
turning into stone.
But you stand for all those things I hate.
I know just where you belong
and I fade!


I hope you know you’ll never be a Man
with those blood dirty hands.
Please Die!
Will you fall? Why do you still stand
when your face is getting long?
Please fall!


"Roger had spent the last five minutes contemplating the little girl's statue. He believed in Charles talent but this time his friend had outdone himself. Charles work had always been too sad and depressing in naive kind of way but the expressive power of that sculpture was nothing less than overwhelming. He had to study it closely, analyze it, take it in his hands. And so he did. Charles was sleeping heavily, so he had the time to feel every detail: her head, her arms, her breasts, her knees. "Now … why not make it look even better?" The girl's sad melancholic look disturbed him, and would most probably disturb anyone who would look at it. It should look happier! More Dynamic! Yes, he could do that! The clay was still soft and moist and he didn't have to mess with the details, just small changes in the position of the head and arms."


What kind of fun were you sharing with your god
while the people in your world
came to a stop?
But you stand and honestly I know,
know just what you have done
and I fade!
