    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!

about

These are the weirdest lyrics I have ever written.
At a concert I was asked once what drugs I used, but I don't do drugs. And the lyrics totally make sense. The title of the song is "art song" and the whole thing is art.
- You have to feel it, to get it -

I will try to translate the chorus into English:

You waited so long
you didn't reach your aim
will you ever arrive?
or does the aim itself arrive

without words
play the songs without words
and the phantasy

There is an awesome music video in the making, inspired by the work of the French artist Thomas Blanchard.

lyrics

so weit weg, so nah
lebt von Verschwendung,
ich hasse Verschwendung
doch liebe meine liebe Kunst
ist das nicht paradox?

verliert an Struktur
mit der Zeit
nicht mehr geaschlossen
es öffnet sich
über den Rahmen

und die Melodien
haben andere Töne
die Zeilen
verlieren immer mehr Ziffern
es wirkt doch irgendwie
verträumt


hast so lang gewartet
das Ziel noch nicht erreicht
kommst jemals an,
oder kommt das Ziel selbst?

Ohne Worte
spiel die Lieder ohne Worte
Und die Phantasie


Diese Welt in der man lebt
hat nur 3 Dimensionen
hör bitte auf mir von der fünften
oder mehr zu erzählen
wenn du selbst nicht weißt
wie die sich anfühlen soll

warum kommt jetzt dieser Gedanke?
Wollte deinen Namen
an diesem Ort niemals sagen

will die Gewissheit verlieren
dass es nicht allein
deine Entscheidung war
und ich dich nicht vergessen kann
wenn du schon gingst
ohne ein letztes Wort zu sprechen
verschwinde aus meinen Träumen


hast so lang gewartet
das Ziel noch nicht erreicht
kommst jemals an,
oder kommt das Ziel selbst?

Ohne Worte
spiel die Lieder ohne Worte
Und die Phantasie
