melodic indie pop with some 80s flavor

Remember David Bowie? Remember his 'Space Oddity'? I am proud I was released in the same year - not from jail, from my mother's womb.
I am Erkling, and I’ve been doing this 'music thing' since the early 80s.

Since the Christmas 2009 I lost the motivation so in 2010 nothing is been created. It all became kind of pointless.
Now, after a year of thinking I believe I approached the whole thing wrong way. I thought creating the music could be a way of life (read:income) but that is not enough. Alongside creating, music must be also performed well and I have to admit- I'm not a performer.

I worked with couple of artists who exist no more. Sadly this is the fate of most artists. Probably because they do music for other reason than pleasure.
But I know- one day I'll get back my muse and then I'll create only for a pleasure. No more stressing for getting it out there to make me an income. No more that!
I deleted almost all my numerous accounts from the Internet and left only couple of pages. Just in case... (maybe cos I know the music won't let me go?)

I used to write with Dan Franch and the result was Atom Cruise. The songs still exist and some of them can be found on the Atom Cruise's page. Me and Dan are still good mates so sooner or later we'll write new stuff.

Before 2005:
