Old traditions Bring us joy And maybe I was not able to value This glittering happiness Why is it so hard To confess I need you too It’s Christmas, Christmas Still ahead of you Fairytale characters Need a change of mood So many things I’ve put on hold But this will continue I've been swept up in your desires Kept my promise, now the circle is small We take a walk in our neighbourhood What’s with that glow I think you misunderstood I never meant to be rude And if I could I would give it all to you It’s Christmas, Christmas Still ahead of you The magic comes in town Takes us in tow

Fireworks 03:02
A new year, a new day, a new chance We’re gonna make up the balance Yesterday is over Today is different I was going to own my voice And what to choose I made my choice for you A real breakthrough It’s your wish I saw the sky burn I felt the sparks It’s your turn When the day breaks and everything starts over again I miss you, I wish you were here I could touch you, kiss you only in a dream Yesterday is over Today is different Don’t promise me a miracle Only if you can promise me You can make it true It’s your wish I saw the sky burn I felt the sparks It’s your turn

Cold Days 04:07
Empty, but not deserted A ghost town Once converted She’s coming down A wing touches my shoulder lightly I know she’s around Out of the swarm Nobody saw she flew away She is here to stay Tell me it was no mistake She is here to stay Although it seems so unlikely This is where we are bound Out of the swarm Nobody saw she flew away In those cold days It’s imagination that keeps me warm And the things that you say

In Reverse 02:44
Big head in outer space is moving from the base Seems so slow when it’s so far away I can see blue in all this black I like to be true and you’ve got plans Full of wonder Full of ourselves Unconcerned Like there’s nothing else It’s all very carefully planned Give me the self-control to give it all to other hands What remains are the future lands I like to be true and you’ve got plans Full of wonder Full of ourselves Unconcerned Like there’s nothing else What is it that moves What’s standing still From far away, we stay in contact When stars fall, they end up being black Very compact

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.
