Islandia Nunca Quema Reus, Spain

Brisbane, Glasgow, Hoboken o Dunedin les queda muy lejos, aunque hubieran encajado perfectamente en sus escenas. Formados en 2010, la historia de ISLANDIA NUNCA QUEMA es bastante más de estar por casa. Son de Reus y Tarragona, y les une su devoción por el pop ilustrado, los juegos de guitarras afiladas, los paisajes melódicos y, de vez en cuando, cierta locura sónica. ... more

Track Name: The Wrong Parade
The wrong parade

I could write a song
talking ‘bout another town
a place so strange and far from home

Uncovered ground
and so much further to go
this time your siren song won’t bring me round

It won’t bring me round
no, it won’t bring me round
not even the strongest wind
will ever bring me round

I’m in the wrong parade
I was cast in the wrong parade
I don’t wanna stay in the wrong parade

In a sea of haze
bastards on parade
I’ve seen their chances fleet away

Streets and cars
clochards and cheapo wine
they soothe their misery by the riverside

I’m in the wrong parade
I was cast in the wrong parade
I don’t wanna stay in the wrong parade

This land is barren and it’s bound to disappear
I need a place where the sky is wide and clear
I wanna see you smile and laugh again
running free under the pouring rain
against the backdrop of an endless sea of bliss

I’m in the wrong parade...
Track Name: Pile of Junk
Pile of Junk

You said
"a word is only a word"
such a line is quite understandable
you’re not much of a German philosopher
waking up from a narcotic slumber

You bit off more than you could chew
and choked on your own vacuity
I strived to get through to you
and I choked on my own lividity

Anyway, now I couldn’t care less
should I be banging my head?
I’m not the one
who’s gonna put you straight
sad as it can be

Sometimes I try to forget
sometimes it gets me out of bed
who let you live in this world of contempt?
who let you in into this world so select?

All right, all right it isn’t a crime
you and I were in it just for fun
a new hype in town
such a waste of time
it ended up bringing us down

Let’s bring back the good times
let us get all loaded
I guess you don’t mind

So much for the old days
there’s nothing I can use
just another fixture
I’d rather lose

Acting on a whim
I’ll take it out on you
so take care out there
you silly little fool
