about

Labasheeda Amsterdam, Netherlands

growling, dynamic stuff here from the Netherlands. Labasheeda make intelligent but not emotionless, angular rock music; it's a brooding sound
with touchstones in the post rock (some gorgeous violin playing in parts) and post-hardcore camps. singer Saskia van der giessen in forlorn almost-romantic vocals which sound all the more sharp set to a back ground
of foreboding guitar chimes.

Track Name: 99% Woman
99% Woman

Kiss my lips together and I’ll be yours
Don’t you be afraid
Surrender
Surrender
To what it hides
Until you are touched inside

This won’t last and I am not a friend
Now I don’t understand what it means
And why we can’t surrender
Surrender

Kiss me
This kiss kisses the words away
Maybe you need a shelter
Alright

You never ask me why
Do you think this is as it should be

This won’t last and I am not a friend
Now I don't understand what it means
And why we can’t surrender
Surrender
Track Name: My City Your Hometown
My City Your Hometown

It is cold out here
Pieces of broken ice in the river
On top of the roof is growing a tree
Out of the window

So at home

A fire is burning bright in a city without light
City still dreaming of its glorious days
Once a famous city
Now it is just the name

The door is open
The room is empty
The door is open
The bottles are broken
A picture is printed in my memory of the cleaner
That likes to burn the papers instead of throwing them away

A fire is burning bright in a city without light
City still dreaming of its glorious days
Once a famous city
Now it is just the name

It is cold out here
Pieces of broken ice in the river
On top of the roof is growing a three
It is the policy of negotiation
It is my city
It is your hometown
Track Name: Your Island
Your Island

I wish we could sit round the table
And talk about the time in between
I wish we could talk about it later
About where you have been

And is everybody partying out there
And is there fruit on every tree
Maybe just water and air
Shu shu
Shu shu

I am standing in front of your island
With the water to my knees
I can’t get on it, I can’t get on it
I walk on buried keys
The tide is too strong
I leave you behind
Between your loved trees
Is this paradise
Is this paradise

This is a sick song but it’s how I feel
I mean I am obscure and you are
And white as snow
and you are light, light, feather light
But I want you heavenly in front of me
And play guitar

Shu shu
shu shu

I am standing in front of your island
with the water on my knees
I can't get on it, I can't get on it
I walk on buried keys
The tide is too strong
I leave you behind
Between your loved trees
Is this paradise
Is this paradise
