    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

I wrote the lyrics after watching the news where people were throwing stones at refugees at a border.

lyrics

She responds with pride
directly into their eyes
It is difficult
but she doesn’t want to fall

They stand right in front of her
with their clean clothes
They won’t listen to her story
’cause they believe
they know it before it is told

I’m sure you know those people
they exist everywhere
in every country
they turn their vague fear
into targeted hate

they heard the name of her country
too often in the last months
but still it is just letter after letter

no picture of a landscape
nor of the houses
nor of the bombings
nor of the blood
just her face under a million of others

and she is the one to realize
those who throw a stone
believe they own it


She’s gonna reach the boarder
and finds her way
She crawls through the fence
She won’t let them take her rights
She dreamed of safety
and education for her child
but now she sits
and waits and waits and waits
’cause there are so many of her


Her language is louder
and faster than theirs
her skin is darker

she came over the ocean
water was her greatest hope
and her greatest fear

there was some sort of trouble
and they say it was one of her kind
and if one of them is mad
they must be all some sort of threat

They do not think a lot
they rather react
But they are not the people
like they used to claim
they are afraid to lose a little bit
afraid to lose some comfort
and afraid of any change

How dare you
how dare you
My grandmother was a war child
How dare you forget your own history
and to claim to close the borders

and she is the one to realize
those who throw a stone
believe they own it
