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: Hackney
Hackney

In the shadows of the room
I can see yours
Thrown on a carpet that looks like velours
Dash my illusion

When pain is failing
I am longing to be nobody
Almost like it is physical
When you touch the gloom

Is it strange the animal
Does not want to escape
Dash my illusion

Change your rules
There is a lot we can do
Stay in the room
There is a lot we can do
Such a fool
Change your rules

And I disappear
In the scenery
Track Name: Bad News for Batman
Not only you
Is a winner now
Not only you
Our carers, even our jailers
This is bad news for Batman
What’s left of your confidence is for iron hands
He functions in areas were we can’t
’Cause he is the man
Everybody is a winner now
Lubricate the machine

This is bad news for Batman
A phantom that’s not visible but it’s aware
Change you changeable mind

Every time you are nasting
From a piece of common sense
Snag the stone and take it home
Every time you are nasting
From a piece of common sense
Track Name: Headquarter
While we look at each other
I give what I get from you and take it too
There are two liars in this room
Being innocent is beautiful
Give me space for a headquarter in my heart
Where you and me fit in and can live apart

Blame it on Eve
She is what you believe
She became a thieve
’Cause she was listening to her needs
Tasting from the apple that feeds

When evil appears in a friendly shape
I don’t care
I’m reaching to the apples and the grapes
Being innocent is beautiful
Give me space for a headquarter in my heart
Where you and me fit in and can live apart
Track Name: Winter
You and I are left in the cold
I give my love a rest
The wind blows fast enough
Pearls on ice are galvanised
Will roll
While snow falls

Stripped down
See it like it is
Stripped down
On the barren ground

It is the winter wind
That makes us feel so cold
A crack in the ice
We are put on hold
Pearls on ice are galvanised
Will roll

Money is like snow
Winter came suddenly
Disappears way too slow
Keep me tight and I feel save
It’s cold, cold, cold
Pearls on ice are galvanised
Will roll, roll, roll
Winter came suddenly
Disappears way too slow

You and I are left in the cold
I give my love a rest
the wind blows fast enough
Pearls on ice are galvanised
Stripped down
on the barren ground

Money is like snow
Winter came suddenly
Disappears way too slow
Keep me tight and I feel save
It’s cold, cold, cold

Pearls on ice are galvanised
Will roll, roll, roll
Winter came suddenly
Disappears way too slow
Track Name: Indulgent
Learning from the other
Able to more than we think
But you can’t decide
You can decide

In the distance is in front of my eyes
I am so tired of things that are impossible

One step to you
One step back
See the future in the gap

On the river with the hills on the other side
Something you are doing right
Soak up your desire
Soak up someone you admire

And your view is wide
On the river’s other side
See the distance in front of my eyes
Soak up someone you admire
Track Name: From You To Me
Oxygen is on the phone again
Above our heads a frame of lines
And an empty space
Wave patters, wave trails
Stay connected, stay connected
On your own
In the whole

Vacate from the vacuum
Another request
Is this a test

And I try, I try
To follow that line

A dancer
On a hallo
A hallucination
Vacate from the vacuum

Fancy dresses and sunglasses
This is how I like you best
Cover your face in an empty space
Wave patters, wave trails
This chaos seems organised
Just another one in my mind

Vacate from the vacuum
Track Name: White Leather
White leather
Is a cold hand
On naked skin

White leather
Now I am with you
It feels like forever
Pleasure is the pain

I want you
You
You
’Cause without you
I fall
I fall forever
Pleasure is the pain

I want you
You
You
’Cause without you
I fall forever

Savage inside
Running wild

I don’t want to lose you
I see I failed breath in the break
Comfort me but don’t try to tame
Savage inside,running wild
And much to hide
Comfort me but don’t try to tame
Track Name: The Crash Within Whithout you
We are staring at the sea
Staring at its infinite
And you stand next to me
Imagine things are gonna be easy

I see a turning point and no brake
Let it have its way for its own sake
Never say it is enough
In the twilight state

I see a turning point and no brake
I am attracted by the infinite
It is the crash within without you
Everywhere it is a nation

We are staring at the sea
Staring at its infinite
Another change to get lost
Imagine things are gonna be easy
Track Name: Way Out
Should I listen to your call
Like a whistle very loud
I’m slinking to the centre
Slinking to the way out
You do not have to take
What is handed
Is this really what you want
Do you really want to push me

Catching up in the centre
Excluding the means
Be careful now, you know how it feels
You see what it does to me

Get lost underground and go round, go round
Let in, let it out, let it be
Let the punishment fit the crime
There are more ways to meet
At the same time
Track Name: Duplicated
Duplicated
Where is my original
Everything in two
A witness to what you do to me

A frantic plaything

I never regret what I do
Am I ever sure
I am never alone
A frantic plaything
Flies on your wing

I like playing
And you are very entertaining
Original when you are true
And guilty too
Duplicated, duplicated

A frantic plaything

I never regret what I do
I am never sure
I am never alone
A frantic plaything
Flies on our wing
