about

Mångata is Swedish for the road-like projection of the moon in the water. Mångata is also the name of our second album. The album is loosely based around the concept of water. Each song harks back to an experience or story revolving around bodies of water. Stylistically we took a different approach than on our first album ‘Sun Drunk Moon’ focusing more on beefing up our sound, producing a more technical yet more melodically layered record.

Mångata contains 44 minutes of new music, spread over 7 songs. The album was recorded at Much Luv studio during the hottest days of summer 2016 with help of producer/engineer Tim De Gieter and was mastered by Swedish producer and Cult of Luna-drummer Magnus Lindberg at Redmount Studios.

If Anything Happens To The Cat is a five-piece indie orchestra from Belgium. Their music is an unpredictable mix between post-rock, shoegaze and indie rock. Every song is a journey: through intertwining layers of guitars and synths, past flashes of vocals and guest instruments, often culminating into crushingly emotional climaxes. ... more

Track Name: Lakesides, Endless
Don’t breathe, we’re stuck
Let the water cleanse your soul

Do you want to see how things get buried here?
Stare deep into the smoke, I hope you’ll live to see tomorrow
No need to emphasize the certain need to hide
Drown in the deep unclear, sally forth from roads you’ve followed

Don’t breathe, we’re stuck
Let the water cleanse your soul
Track Name: Raven Steals the Light
All the lights, they shimmer, they flicker
And for a moment the clock seems to stop
All the lights, they shimmer, they flicker
They’re a reminder of things that you’ve lost

All the lights, beyond the horizon
Where marble towers shoot up to the skies
And every day, reaching higher and higher
Beaconing signals to which no one complies

Oooh oooh ooh ooh

All the lights, they shimmer and flicker
Is there a reason why they keep them inside?
I’ll paint stars, constellations of fire
Bright up the night instead of dwelling inside

All the lights, they shimmer and flicker
Now lit up stark, lighting the heres and the nows
all the lights, they shimmer, they flicker
And for a moment the clock seems to stop
Track Name: Echo Park
You made it out ‘til summertime
I made it out ‘til June
But now the storm it catches up
There’s nothing left to do
but hold on to the ropes my love
Close your eyes again
The light’s too far away to see
Across the misty land

You felt like steering deeper out
I felt like dashing in
By now it’s much too late to leave
The ropes are wearing thin
I never prayed so hard for rain
While slamming on the keel
I felt the water rushing in
The sense of something real

And I will brave this storm for you
Until the sheer strake brakes
When dark sets in and summer fades
We’ll look for something new

In bodies of wood
We’ll conquer the flood
No fear of the tides
We cut loose and cast off

Did you see it happen
It was right in front of your eyes
I tried to save it all for you
And you still look surprised
I look like a battlefield
I’m swept from side to side
Cave in or dig a deeper hole
a place where I can hide

And I will build a ship for you
we’ll sail right out of town

Going down with the strength of the tides
wasn’t your plan, I know it never was
But fixing holes the size of the ship
isn’t an option when you’ve never lost
So when the waves started eating the deck
I kinda liked it, I must admit
For what it’s worth, this boat was never enough
To hold the both of us, as it did

And I will build a ship for you
we’ll sail right out of town
Track Name: Out and Into the Vast
Rising odds, colours down, pulse of routine
In a haze, digging deep, leap just to fall
Retrace lines along the cracks, you’ll see them fade
Retrace lines along the cracks, you’ll see the stains

Mould the ground into a floor
I need something to walk upon

It slipped away, embracing the small hours ‘til the light of day
And bracing for a hit which never seems to come
The ship has sailed, it’s gone too far
Out and into the vast
Keep clawing like a lion just to hold them off
You’re straying from the flock in search of better luck
Oh, did it ever do you harm?
Out and into the vast
Track Name: Seren
Now we’ve been waiting
No sidelines left to cross,
they’ve been submerged

An echo’s fading
They make shift
as it seems my body yearns

It never felt like straying
The need for intonating
It all just feels so stale to me
The waiting lost its spark you see

It never looked so distant
Still broadcasting the signal
I’m a lighthouse, you’re the call
I’m a lighthouse, you’re the call
