Ptolemea: Illustrates the celebration of the natural elements and is a moment of inner observation.

Ptolemea – Wrong Tears

Local female-fronted alternative rock band Ptolemea have established themselves as a vocally excellent live act with a melancholic, dreamy twist. With a powerful voice, tight grooves and grungy riffs, the outfit delivers finest rock music. It is with authentic passion and a deep understanding of the principles of rock music that Ptolemea set sails with their newest EP Maze (release 13/03/20).

The alternative rock band Ptolemea from Luxembourg kicks off 2022 with the release of their new song and video, Wrong Tears. Like a shaman on the path of awakening, Priscila Da Costa, singer and founder of the project, creates her future by focusing on the “here and now” and invites you to join her.

Wrong Tears illustrates the celebration of the natural elements and is a moment of inner observation.


I can’t cheat

But I won’t speak

Can you see it? Can you tell?

I don’t know what I need

Keep smiling while I bleed

The moon keeps howling at me

Over and over I try to understand

All the lines of our heart

So I call out to you

To find out the truth

So please set me free

Only time heals

Did I cry the wrong tears?

Time also reveals the fears

Over and over I try to understand

All the lines of our heart

…of my heart

Wrong Tears illustrates the celebration of the natural elements and is a moment of inner observation. After Mad being released in December 2021, this new single confirms the expansion of Ptolemea in terms of authenticity and originality, not only the visuals but the soundscape keeps growing as well.

As Priscila explains: «Thanks to Ptolemea and with this track, I keep on finding solutions to materialize my feelings and my inner battles. Learning and sharing, expressing myself and creating under the sway of the moon… Deep down I feel that the project is moving towards beautiful opportunities and Ptolemea is definitely ready for a journey to the stars!».

«From an artistic perspective, Wrong Tears announces a transition, offering a powerful and dynamic sound, and suggesting a first album with a distinctive and forceful character. The album will come out in early 2023 and singles will be released from April 2022».

Mother Earth watches over Ptolemea, as over all living things, and with the release of Wrong Tears, on January 28, 2022, its author confirms the motivations of her artistic project of a new genre, where nature and synchronicity have their own place: keep moving forward on the path of life and let the music evolve, while bringing more body to the heart of the sound of Ptolemea.

In a reassuringly obscure style, the video shows Priscila writing a letter to the universe in order to get rid of old patterns and manifest new ones. A new beginning, a new skin.

Wrong Tears was recorded by Yves Deville Ditsch at Gam Studios in Belgium, mixed and mastered by award-winning sound engineer Alan Douches at West Side Music Studio in New York, USA and written by Priscila Da Costa. The music video was shot at a place full of history in Luxembourg, the Bourscheid forest, and was filmed by Eric Dalele, photographer and videographer from Reunion Island.


Om Ulf Backstrøm (6811 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
