lyrics

Backstroke

Upon the water, eyes up in the air
We’re gonna act like we are unaware
We’ll be doing backstroke till we get there, we’ll be doing Backstroke till we get there

Upon the water, eyes up in the air
We’re gonna act like we are unaware
We’ll be doing backstroke till we get there

Not oblivious, but accepting
Waves are bound to break a few stones
Trust is a matter of time
Time around you
Rhythm moving, not moving
All we see is the sky, all we do is rely

On what’s to come, so don't you tell me

Upon the water, eyes up in the air
We’re gonna act like we are unaware
We’ll be doing backstroke till we get there, we’ll be doing Backstroke till we get there

Upon the water, eyes up in the air
We’re gonna act like we are unaware
We’ll be doing backstroke till we get there, we’ll be doing Backstroke

Surrounded somewhere in the in-between
Lay back my liquid silhouette
Who asks, who asks, who asks why?
Shadows in the shallow end
All we see is the sky, all we do is rely

Who asks, who asks, who asks, who asks why?

Upon the water, eyes up in the air
We’re gonna act like we are unaware
We’ll be doing backstroke till we get there, we’ll be doing Backstroke till we get there

Upon the water, eyes up in the air
We’re gonna act like we are unaware
We’ll be doing backstroke till we get there, we’ll be doing Backstroke till we get there

about

Small Fires Hamburg, Germany

With just a few choice ingredients the German-British trio play an atmospheric mixture of Indie-Pop and Electronic. The pulsating drums and bass are surrounded by the echo of the guitar. Crackles, synths and electronic beats spark all around. In combination with the narrative lyrics of their British singer they create a sound greater than the sum of its parts. Small is beautiful. ... more
