"I say, kudos to any group that can afford to blend flamenco melodies with “Portnoy-style” tom fills". Marc Saunders, Rock Pulse Magazine (UK)

Biography

Aneurysm June is a NYC based alternative rock band formed by Cesar F. (Spain), Benj (France) and Mat Manhammer (France). Equally influenced by the american grunge, the european rock and flamenco, the band's originality relies on the use of flamenco scales over edgy punk rock and the intense use of dynamics in their songs, which allows the co-existence of super fuzzed guitars with clean arpeggios. This is often used in the music of Aneurysm June to express the bipolar themes of their lyrics, that are carefully crafted both in english and spanish. They have released two albums: "Strawberries on the asphalt" in digital format in september 2009 and "Chemical" in January 2011.

RIYL: Nirvana, early Radiohead, Pixies, Husker Du, Sonic Youth.

Venues played: Mercury Lounge, Pianos, Arlene's Grocery, Rockwood Music Hall, The Trash Bar, Public Assembly etc.

Lyrics

Ghost Horses

Written By: Cesar F.

Ghost horses,
To ride our dreams.
Ghost horses,
To set us free.

Tonight,
We ride ghost horses,
Tonight,
Our soldiers are free.

It´s a question of time,
We are ready to ride,
We have done this before.

And the fear they feel for being what they are,
A man silent at his window at night.

Fade Away

Written By: Cesar F.

Come around my little fire,
I’ve been making too much noise and I need to burn,
Fade away my lonely dancer,
Start over again and again and get yourself back.

Say,
You turn yourself around,
I know,
I know you’re bringing me down,
Down.

Nothing’s lost my little demon,
But when I was supposed to grow I gave up,
Close to what it cannot be told,
I wish I could ease your days by painting suns black.

Say,
You turn yourself around,
I know,
I know you’re bringing me down,
Down.

Skinny Soul

Written By: Cesar F.

My sickness keeps me out of the track,
makes me king of an invisible land,
Lord at the gates of time.
Your skin is farther than my hometown,
but hope keeps sticking around,
Lonely love, wicked heart.

Save me,
Save me,
From me.

I'm there but I have a skinny soul,
Numb child asking for more,
What else can I do for you,
Shallow ghost, almost see-through,
I'm there, but I have a skinny soul.

Weaknesses that others don't want,
Are my strength make me starve,
Knifes that heal, words that hurt.
And your chest is much farther than hell,
So throw the keys and wish me well,
Truth to hide, lies to tell.

Save me,
Save me,
From me.

I'm there but I have a skinny soul,
Numb child asking for more,
What else can I do for you,
Shallow ghost, almost see-through,
I'm there, but I have a skinny soul.

One day to Another

Written By: Cesar F.

Staring at the subway my day ain’t that bad,
I shouldn’t be that dizzy watching people going back,
For everything that’s coming out my mind goes sharp,
I wish it was October, to have a better reason to be sad.

And living this day, its just another way to start,
One day to another, its just another way to start.

Truthfully I don’t know you but I don’t mind,
I rather be the light in there than the outside dark,
For those looking for blessings, here she comes,
I rather be that grateful, to avoid to get the blame to pick me up.

And living this day, its just another way to start,
One day to another, its just another way to start.

Ashtray Lips

Written By: Cesar F.

De colores suicidas se tiñe tu piel,
Abrigo de tierra la noche de miel,
Se pudre el verano de veinte años atrás,
Tormentas que acaban antes de empezar.

Y ahora viajas otra vez,
Labios de ceniza en un cascaron de nuez,
Y a la deriva por primera vez,
Labios de ceniza en un cascaron de nuez.

Se acaban tus labios muy lejos de aquí,
La noche regala un arco iris gris,
El humo que habita el mundo entre los dos,
Llena el espacio que dejo el color.

Y ahora viajas otra vez,
Labios de ceniza en un cascaron de nuez,
Y a la deriva por primera vez,
Labios de ceniza en un cascaron de nuez.

Se apaga mi memoria a kilómetros de aquí,
Lluvia de papel palabras que perdí,
Labios de ceniza me acuerdo de ti,
Verano de tormenta, invierno de sol gris.

Y ahora viajas otra vez,
Labios de ceniza en un cascaron de nuez,
Y a la deriva por primera vez,
Labios de ceniza en un cascaron de nuez.

Playing with Kites

Written By: Cesar F.

Don’t look back in case someone can hear,
Take the keys.
Nothing’s left for us but open sky,
Now you can breathe.

What else you may need?

And tonight, we won’t need to prove that we are right.
And Tonight, fighter planes are playing just like kites.

And now they’re gone,
Drawing on the sky my way back home.
And now they’re gone,
Drawing on the sky my way back home.

Pack your future in a tiny bag,
And just take off.
Tell your friends that you won’t be around,
Your head comes off.

What else will you fight for?

And tonight, there’s more room for rent up in the sky.
And tonight, fighter planes are playing just like kites.

And now they’re gone,
Drawing on the sky my way back home.
And now they’re gone,
Drawing on the sky my way back home.
