about

“Dlouho to vypadalo, že jako kapela to máme za sebou. Měli jsme spoustu osobních záležitostí, od narození dětí až po řešení pozůstalostí. Na hudbu nebyl čas.” říká zpěvák kapely Jonáš Zbořil. Nová hudební inspirace, která přišla těsně před kapelním rozpadem, nakonec paradoxně vzešla z potřeby vyrovnat se s velkými změnami v životě i ve světě kolem. “S dítětem na krku začneš řešit svět trochu víc. A zvlášť věci, které by mohly tvoje dítě ohrozit.” V roce 2017 se ve zkušebně pražských SoCR začalo rodit Solid State, album ovlivněné rodičovstvím, klimatickou změnou a pocitem úzkosti z budoucnosti.

Album Solid State nevyjde na klasických hudebních nosičích, ale jako instatní polévka. “Hudební průmysl se fetišizoval a nechává za sebou ohromnou uhlíkovou stopu. Vinyly jsou zbytečné objekty, nemluvě o obrovských emisích streamování. Zní to absurdně, ale vydat album jako instantní polévku je v dnešní době vlastně daleko rozumější volba,” říká kytarista kapely Jan Tůma, který se profesionálně zabývá životním prostředím a uhlíkovou stopou lidstva. “Navíc, až jednou bude svět v koncích, oblíbené vinyly si s sebou do obecního bunkru neponesete. Ale polévka Solid State vám přijde vhod.”

Track Name: Solid State
we have pushed the button
now the time is gonna tick

there’s no way how to change it
no way really how to quit

gonna take some time
till we
got no time to give up

we keep making restless lists
coz we don’t have enough

i don’t
believe in the solid state
no more

i hear
it’s all gonna melt away
one day

someone pushed the button
we put the cards on the deck

there’s no way how to change it
no way how to take it back

gonna take some time my darling
till we realize we made a huge mistake
water’s burning earth is dry
we don’t seem to realize
what a huge mistake

i don’t
believe in the solid state
no more

i hear
it’s all gonna melt away
one day
Track Name: Spacebeat
oh what a weekend
oh what a week
so happy i feel

you took my hand dear
you pulled me through
and now we’re three

i feel it pulling
i see it glowing
all that energy

an early morning
two pairs of eyes
still a fresh thing to me

a slow evening
you do the dishes
i’ll put the baby to sleep

remind me darling
when all is gone
that once we were here

how you cried for momma
and how you smiled for me
and how every morning
we’d just walk by the creek

how my mother told me
that friends will disappear
and how the endless evenings
will end eventually
Track Name: A Passing Moment
of course you’ll never know
it’s just a passing moment
all those words dissolve
all left - a sillhouette

fly off the handle
everything around
dissolving in the dark
big stuff is yet to come

and if it’s ashes and bones
the world won’t remember
bugs, birches, flies and swamps
no hopes and no regrets

fly off the handle
everything around
dissolving in the dark
big stuff is yet to come

oh god you’ll never know
yeah i got my nerves turned on
all the stuff that’s yet to come
feels like a ticking bomb
Track Name: Under Your Radar
not sure what i’m doing
i guess i’m just letting it
lead my hand
feels like i’m on a passing train
waving to my friends

so very happy lately
i guess i’m going through the fat years
while everyone else is suffering
i’m sleeping safe and sound
under your radar

why would you turn backwards
the future’s coming up
what’s up with the long face
come along if you want
Track Name: Try
somebody is crying
finally you’re here
moon is moving slow
and the sky is clear

whispers in the breeze
you and you
and me

somebody is crying
to fight another day
all the wrong that you do
all is here to stay

it sure won’t be easy
when i’ll have gone away

i know, i know i gotta do it
nobody else will do it right

somebody is crying
finally i’m here
moon is moving slow
and the sky is clear

it sure won’t be easy
when you are nowhere near
Track Name: J1ndr4
what a beautiful day
saw the morning sun
then we had such fun
down in the park

what a beautiful day
still have friends around
clock goes round and round
but i don’t hear it now

what a beautiful day
saw the morning sun
then we had such fun
down in the park

what a beautiful day
till i felt that itch
till my breath went shallow
and i don’t know why

music is just a dim light
language no longer speaks to me
music is just a dim light
language no longer speaks to me
nothing ever feels right
nothing no longer

every other monday
it starts over again
all the info that you can’t avoid

if you put your headphones on
and hide
you won’t hear it
but you’ll still be seen

music is just a dim light
language no longer speaks to me
music is just a dim light
language no longer speaks to me
nothing ever feels right
Track Name: Insomnia Street
an island off the street
walking down the hill
silver hours shining here
we’ll find a way

what do you want to do tomorrow
give me your hand
just look up the sky
the sun’s coming up
Track Name: Towers
don’t wanna know
don’t say a word
we’re not alone
there’s company

are the children okay
put the children away

towers and walls
world of our own
where will we go
it’s far away

are the children okay
put the children away

please
tell me that i’m crazy
when i say
the end is near

see
nothing now
but soon enough
they’ll say
now it’s too late

lift me up
make it right
make sure that we’re always safe together baby
Track Name: Stålenhag
why would you turn backwards
when future’s coming up
we’re giving you a chance
take a look
pick it up

can you see it
just vapours
can you see it
just vapours

we’re giving you a chance
yeah you, you’re up next
there’s no time for trying
you better pull it off

can you see it
just vapours
can you see it
just vapours
Track Name: Let Me Out
sunday afternoon
snow falls slowly now
everything is quiet
but the wires round

birds in a cage
vapours from the ground
i can hear them beepin
let me out

standing on the edge
don’t make another step
this is the furthest
you can get

birds in a cage
vapours on the ground
all of this too much
to figure out

keep your mouth shut
let’s hope for the best
just a tiny heart
pounding in that chest

don’t know what you’ve got
surely you’ll find out
all of this too much
to figure out
