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: Listen the Snow is Falling
Listen, the Snow Is Falling (Yoko Ono)

Listen, the snow is falling over town
Listen, the snow is falling everywhere
Between Empire State Building
And between Trafalgar Square
Listen, the snow is falling over town

Listen, the snow is falling over town
Listen, the snow is falling everywhere
Between your bed and mine
Between your head and my mind
Listen, the snow is falling over town
Listen, the snow is falling over town
Track Name: My Instincts
My Instincts

He wants her back
And she smiles again
While she looks into my eyes

Don’t make it harder
’Cause you want to be smarter
That is just one way

In the middle of nowhere
Everything seems wrong
Get yourself togheter
The will is very strong

Did she believe
It was a decision to leave
Say it isn’t so

I follow my instinct
Very distinct
I follow my instinct

She saved her treasures in a shell
Foolishing her means
You are foolishing yourself as well

A lack of something
That he should define
Find out if she’s got time

Did she believe
It was a decision to leave
Say it isn’t so
Track Name: Black Blood
Black Blood

Get in before you are spit out
It’s an organic thing
Pumping black blood
While the heart is jumping
Maybe it’s good for you
If it’s taking you in

She got snakes around her waist
She smiles but it’s not for you
Jeff always plays the bad guy
That fits him
I am so scared
I am so scared
To lose myself in the new
In the new
Before it’s taking you in

Get in before you are spit out
It’s an organic thing
Pumping black blood
While the heart is jumping
It is just the beginning
Maybe it’s good for you
If it’s taking you
Track Name: Elastic
Elastic

Elastic with eyelashes of plastic
She’s lying on the sand
Watching clouds pass by
Wish it was always so quiet

Today is the longest day

Borrow me your sleepy eyes
Now you can make yourself limber
Stretch out while you lean on a hand
Leave it to the other to pray

Today is the longest day
