Ema K. Since I discovered Jonathan cca 5 days ago, I play this album on repeat.
It is absolutely obvious that they are very experienced musicians but what really got me is the enthusiasm and energy of a rookie band. And of course, deep and rich voice of the lead singer paired with honest lyrics.
I consider this to be my greatest music discovery of this year. Favorite track: Paperman.

Vanja Maintaining that dark, melancholic lining present in most indie music, they counter it with bursts of energy to create a harmonious and well balanced combination of the two opposing worlds. A refreshing record. Favorite track: The School.

Branimir A chilling performance by a promising croatian indie band, making a impressive debut with their 12 track album, Bliss.

With a sincere and catchy sound to the album, they bring out the best indie music has to offer. More to the fact, their grand debut came playing as a supporting act for The Editors, where they made quite a impression.

If you're in need of change from the usual dullness that catches up after a while in the same genre, Bliss is the fresh solution you absolutely need to hear. Favorite track: Pictures.

UMBRELLAS IN THE SUN


IN THIS TOWN
MANY PEOPLE DYING WITH THEIR YOUNG
IN THIS TOWN
IT'S ALWAYS UMBRELLAS IN THE SUN
AND MISTER JOHN, HE WEARS HIS COLOGNE
AND HE'S WEEPING HIS SONG
HE SAYS:
BOY YOU SHOULD BE CAREFUL,
GENEROUS AND GRATEFUL

BUT


DON'T KEEP ME WAITING
YOU WON'T HEAR ME COMPLAINING
'BOUT THE STATE OF PERPETUAL BLISS
WHERE THOSE WHO LOSE ARE WINNING
AND ALL THE CHILDREN SINGING
ON AND ON, AND IT FEELS LIKE A KISS
STILL YOU WANT IT LIKE THIS


IN THIS TOWN
MANY PEOPLE DYING WITH THEIR YOUNG
IN THIS TOWN
IT'S ALWAYS UMBRELLAS….


IN THE SUN
IN THE SUN
IN THE SUN


HERE THERE, MAKES NO SENSE
FIGURE OUT YOUR OWN WAY
MISTER JOHN AND HIS SONG, THEY ARE HERE TO STAY
GOD IS HERE, GOD IS THERE, GOD'S FOR SURE YOU KNOW?
WIN SOME, BUILD A HOME, BUY YOURSELF SOME FINE DOORS,
KILL FOR YOUR GOD, IT'S HEROIC, YOU'RE NOT A VIGILANTE
AND I FIND IT IN THE BOOKS I SHED
AND IT'S NOT SO HARD TO FIGURE IT
AND I FIND IT SO DAMN SICKENING
AND IT FINALLY STARTS TO RICOCHET
AND I SHOUT IT, AND I SHOUT IT
AND I SHOUT
STOP KILLING ME…

Track Name: Pictures
I 'm sure you known
I'm so amazed to wait for you
I make the face in the sun
And then I wait until the night

Oh I'm so amazed
I'm just gonna let you know
That I'm here and it's getting cold
Four weeks are making me feel so weak

Oh I'm so amazed
I should have been someone
Not down with anyone
Complaining 'bout the rain

Now that you fade
You're fading away
Fading with everything
You 're fading with everyone
Oh please can it wait...

I see you bathing in our silly bath
And you waist...
I'm so amazed, that you...knew it all
I need to say these words to shake it off


Oh I'm so amazed
I should have been someone
Not down with anyone
And take few hits of pain


Now that you fade
You're fading away
Making me anything
Making me anyone
Now that you're gone...
I can be anything


Now that you're fading
It's so amazing that you take
Oh that you take me
It's like I'm almost anyone
And who should I become
Who to praise to make it through
'Cause it's all you
It's all you
It's all you



Amazed
I'm laughin' in the rain
I shoud feel anything
I'm back with everyone
Who see what I've become
Oh I feel better days
I'm just staring at the pain
It's all that I can do
'Cause it's all you
It's all you
It's all you

Amazed
I'm laughing in the rain
Oh be back today
Please be back tonight
Oh don't you become
The past with everything
I'm sure you're back today
We'll laugh with everyone

Aaaaaaaaaa
It's all you
It's all you
It's all you
It's all you


Amazed...

Track Name: Paperman
PAPER MAN

THAT SUMMER ALL HE WANTED WAS A MINUTE OF HER TIME
BUT ALL HE GOT, ALL HE EVER GOT
WERE LIES
HE PLACED HIS HEAD BETWEEN HER PLASTIC THIGHS
AND PLAYED HIMSELF THAT HE KNEW NOTHING ELSE BUT WHAT IS TRUE AND RIGHT

ALL THE YOUNG MEN GROW HATE FOR THEIR FUTURE WIVES
THERE'S A LOT, OH THERE IS A LOT
GOING ON INSIDE
WHO'S TO BLAME, IT'S SUCH A SHAME AND IT SEEMS ALRIGHT
PAPER MAN PLAYED HIMSELF THAT HE SAW NOTHING ELSE BUT HER AND THAT NIGHT

HE SAID:
"THIS SURELY MUST BE FAITH
THERE'S SO MANY THINGS I HATE
FEELS SO NICE YOU HATE 'EM TOO
THERE IS NO ONE ELSE LIKE YOU
I'M FEELING SORRY FOR MYSELF
AND CORRODING IN MY CELL
I'LL CATCH THIRTY MILLION STARS
AND PUT FIRE ON THIS TIDES
IF YOU SAY YOU WANT ME TOO
EVEN THOUGH IT ISN'T TRUE
I SWEAR ON THIS FLESH AND BONES
YOU'RE THE CROWN AND YOU'RE MY THRONE..."

I TELL YOU THIS TIME BABY
IT'S ALL LIES
I TELL YOU THIS TIME BABY
IT'S ALL LIES

PA-PA-RA RA-PA PA-RA-RA-RA.......

I TELL YOU THIS TIME BABY
IT'S ALL LIES
I TELL YOU THIS TIME BABY
IT'S ALL LIES
