New song!



Recently we played at Kset with swedish band Summer Heart. After the concert all of us ended up in a friend’s apartment, drinking and exchanging each other nation’s customs. Croats are generally embarrassed by their own country and look up to sorted out countries like Sweden. But the Swedes told us they wouldn’t mind less rules and less order. What do they know… Still, one thing they said stuck with us - how the Swedes are socially awkward and how they seldom make contacts with strangers. Having played with that thought in our heads, Zoran wrote this song Making Friends aiming for naive lyrics, reminiscent of the film “Juno” (for some reason), describing how introverted and shy people (that is, “socially awkward people”) make friends.

Fun facts:
If you ever want to play this song, have in mind that it is tuned DADF#BE, otherwise, you’ll have a hard time playing it. The songs sounds “twee as fuck” and it seems to us that we finally figured out why most of people compare us to Belle and Sebastian. We definitely need to start listening to that band. Lora has a solo on melodica. If you turn the volume up, you will hear birds singing in the beginning of the song. They are actual birds from our garden accidentally recorded while recording the guitar.

Making Friends lyrics

I’d like to sit right next to you in a crowded dining hall
Feeling nervous and sweaty hands, I look down on the floor
Shyness is the sweetest fruit that I’m picking up right now
I’d like to sit right next to you in a crowded dining hall

I do, I really do, but I’m scared of you
I do, I really do, so what about you?

I’d like to talk about some stuff that you and I just like so much
Maybe you’re a music lover, maybe you play some guitar
Maybe you love literature, maybe you take photographs
I’d like to talk about some stuff that you and i just like so much

I do, I really do, but I’m scared of you
I do, I really do, so what about you?
