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

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

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

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

Seren 06:17
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

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.

about

If Anything Happens To The Cat Gent, Belgium

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
