    This year was pretty hard to all of us so far.
    In wealthy countries the fight strategies against the pandemic hit especially musicians and venues.
    We, as just starting Newcomers, got our first concerts cancelled in March, like so many others.
    But then we were pretty lucky: We had our first concert later in summer. It was a wonderful open air event in an even bigger location in front of a downscaled audience. Everyone was sitting at tables with distance. It was a very cozy athmosphere in the middle of this strange summer.
    That evening the first listeners did buy our Debut CD after the concert. And we have some left of this first print - that you can purchase now and we are very much looking forward to your support.

    We hope you or maybe the person you give our CD as a christmas present ;) enjoy listening to our music!
    Stay healthy and stay with us, we already have new stuff in the making for next year!

    Interesting detail: the backside of the cd is BLACK!

This track is very punk-influenced.

The song asks in the chorus:
"When I see people like you I start getting kind of sad
can you after all these years still pretend to be happy?
Don't you break from your own mendacity someday?
Will you tell yourself this stuff - until it is true?"


Du rückst deinen Schatten
immer wieder
ins rechte Licht
damit andere von der halten
was du gern sein willst

Es mit jedem gut zu halten
ist dein höchstes Ziel
Denn gerade das hat für dich Stil

Dein verlogener Charakter
verliert an Glaubwürdigkeit
Und die, die das erkennen,
werden nebenbei aus dem Weg geräumt

Deine Prioritäten hast du dir
ganz vage gesetzt
und hinter der Fassade
weint dein Herz

Du sagst öfter „ja“ als „nein“
und bist irgendwie
trotzdem allein

Wenn ich Menschen wie dich seh
Werd ich irgendwie traurig
kann man denn nach Jahren
immer noch so tun als sei man glücklich?

Geht man denn nicht irgendwann
an seiner eigenen Verlogenheit kaputt?
Redest du dir das solange ein bis es stimmt?
