about

Jonathan Rijeka, Croatia

Jonathan is a band of five close friends from Rijeka, Croatia whose paths crossed in 2011. Their music is maybe best described as dark-lens optimism - there is an honest undertone of pain and angst in almost all of the tracks - which allows for a punky vibe - and a surge of energy and hope which leaves you blindsided.

Ziro - vocals
Husta - drums
Nixon - bass
Rade - guitar
Tomo - guitar

Track Name: Juvenile
JUVENILE
SHOW YOUR FACE WITHIN THIS SUMMER
JUVENILE
DRAW YOUR FIST UP TO THE SUN
JUVENILE
WE'D HAVE A BLAST IF I WAS YOUNGER
YOU KNOW THAT I
STILL HAVE YOUR NEED TO BE ADORED
TO BE ADORED, TO BE ADORED

JUVENILE
I KEEP MY PICTURE IN A WALLET
NO WOMAN SMILES
'CAUSE I'M AFRAID TO LET YOU GO
I'M PARALYZED
SO FREE MY HANDS OR I'LL BREAK APART
MY JUVENILE
THAT IS THE LEAST THAT I DESERVE
THAT I DESERVE, THAT I DESERVE
I'VE GOT SAD NEWS 'BOUT YOUR BROTHER
HE COULD NOT BELIEVE WE LOVE HIM SO...

JUVENILE
YOUR MAMA SAID YOU SHOULD BE HUMBLE
JUVENILE
PLEASE REJECT THAT SACRED FORM
JUVENILE
I CRAVE FOR HINTS OF US TOGETHER
IT IS THE TIME
I FEEL THE BLISS TO BE ALIVE
TO BE ALIVE, TO BE ALIVE
Track Name: Try To Get Even
GETTIN' CLOSER IS KEEPIN' US APART...

WELL THERE ARE A FEW THINGS
THAT I WOULDN'T MISS
IF I PLACE 'EM OFF THE WALL
WILL YOU MIND THOSE OPPORTUNITIES
THAT I NEVER FELT BEFORE..

IT'S ALL THOSE DEALS THAT ARE WAITING FOR US
TO WHICH BOTH OF US CAN'T RELATE
THAT FEEL SO INCREDIBLE
YET SO FORGETTABLE
IT'S ALL THOSE SACRED THINGS THAT ARE WAITING FOR US
TO WHICH NOBODY CAN RELATE
THAT SEEM SO IMPECCABLE
BUT TURN OUT REGRETTABLE

OH NO NO..
OOH MARY HAD A LITTLE CHILD
THAT SHE RAISED BY HERSELF AND LEARNED HOW TO HIDE
SO WHO COULD EVER COME AND CARE FOR HER LIFE
'CAUSE WHO COULD EVER KNOW THE SECRET SHE TRIED TO
BURY IN THE NAME OF GOD
AND IF SOMEONE SHOULD TRY TO ENTER HER HEART
THEN SHE'LL TRY TO GET EVEN, TRY TO GET EVEN, TRY TO GET EVEN,
TRY TO GET EVEN FOR:

HONEST REACH, ARMS THAT DELIVER,
BEGGING TO BELONG AND KEEPIN' US ALIVE FOR
BEING TENDER, ARMS TOGETHER,
FEELING SO INVOLVED AND FOR GETTIN' US SO FAR
FOR TEARS, CHEST, SINS FORGIVEN,
FOR CRUSHING DOWN THE WALLS AND WASTING TIME ON TRYING
TO BE RESTLESS BUT TIED TOGETHER
TEARING UP YOURSELF AND FILLING US WITH LOVE SO

EVEN, EVEN, TRY TO GET EVEN
EVEN, EVEN, IT'S KEEPING US APART
EVEN, WASTED, KEEP US TOGETHER, GETTING CLOSER IS KEEPING US APART
