about

We wrote these 3 songs over the course of the last year in between rehearsals and soundchecks in our living rooms and minds.
Lots of love went into making this record. Every sound you hear comes from us, we recorded, mixed and mastered everything on our own and grew a lot in the process.

Also, we were incredibly lucky to have the talented Parvin Jahanshad on board for the artwork. Please follow her at: www.instagram.com/parvinjahanshad

Hope you enjoy listening to High & Dry as much as we did creating it!

Track Name: Dreambird
It’s like time is visiting to take a part from me
Just want to hold your wings, together we could flee
Nothing to win, but so much to lose
I feel nothing, but the almighty blues

Oh dreambird, you were a loyal friend
You showed me all your assets
I saw the perfect one and now it is my plan
To never let it go

See my bird flying up to sky
Never know if it comes home
So many times it took me on its flights
Now I’m alone

Touching my own face to feel the satisfaction
Emptiness surrounding me, where is your attraction?
Searching in the ambience for this special olfaction
It’s in my head and it’s not, there is no narration

Oh dreambird, you were a loyal friend
You showed me all your assets
I saw the perfect one and now it is my plan
To never let it go

See my bird flying up to sky
Never know if it comes home
So many times it took me on its flights
Now I’m alone
I was used to fly high, but now I’m falling deep
I’m begging you darling, please come back to me
Track Name: What if they're wrong?
Hey little shoeshine boy
You’re feeling like a toy
Of the mighty man who’s sitting shoe to face with you

Materialistic people try to fool you with their cash
But remember it is always a lie
Try to attract you, don’t make a bow at their business bash
They will live alone till they’ll die

Raise your head and you will see them fail

‘cause you know exactly how they feel
Poor souls with artificial smiles
Their endless greed will cost them everything
No matter how shiny their style

Hey boy, ten bucks, go and get me a drink
You’ll get five more, if you are back in a wink
Don’t spill a drop or you have to lick it from the ground

Look in his eyes – pride comes before a fall
You boil with rage and grab him by the tie
A clear idea – you won’t be longer his private doll
Your pride is something, which he cannot buy

Raise your head and you will see them fail

‘cause you know exactly how they feel
Poor souls with artificial smiles
Their endless greed will cost them everything
No matter how shiny their style

What's left of the life inside
His eyes, vanished as he died
The first breath of your freedom is your last
It is a circle, your future is your past
Track Name: Lord Mammoth
Stand down from me
The realm is on its knee
You heard the story
The humans stand no chance

When we go we got nowhere to hide
When we stay we couldn’t take up a fight
We’re stuck at this fork of the road

It’s the same old tale
Where the evil prevail
And the good don’t align with the rest

The birds, they come
They got something undone
Act quick, don’t look back
Before pigeons attack

The circle has to be drawn of blood
Three gemstones put into the mud
The candles lit by the shine of the wil-o-wisp

Rats of the sky
They come for you
And they cause the whole demise
Of the human race we knew
But the mammoths know what to do

It ends today
Life always finds a way
They pierce them down, the heaven’s breaking up

Spirits of the ancient beasts
Let it rain ivory spears
Hear me, only you can turn the faith

Rats of the sky
They come for you
And they cause the whole demise
Of the human race we knew
But the mammoths know what to do

Just when we thought that we were doomed
The mammoths materialized
All the pigeons turned into one pink mist
So for years the crop was fertilized
