Need to see Corner Room live at least because the vocalist has a cool ass, and his voice flows like a mountain river during the spawning of trout, directs behind.
And you are in this stream feeling a unity with the others, overcoming the rapids going to the most important event of your life.

Biography

Corner Room is now working on a debut album, which is scheduled for release in late April. After that, there will be only six thousands miles from Moscow to Berlin, from Tallinn to Vienna in the minibus saturated with masculine fragrance, tedious travelling chatter and the daily killing time of waiting for the evening shows. The full exhaustion of young organisms in the walls of the cramped clubs, filled with fumes of heated bodies under the spring sky of Europe is ahead.

Corner Room has matured to record an album after a year from their first EP. Since then sound has greatly changed influenced by post-punk, psychedelic rock and cassette recordings of old electronic music in the atmosphere of the garage truly strong songs were born. This period was filled with creative quests, overcoming ourselves both musically, and everyday life sense. Oppressive atmosphere of a small town in country of Eastern Europe in its own way was useful for the slow process of fermentation ideas.

These processes were going on inside, and during the year there were no movements on the surface, with the exception of the tour of Russia and several radio airplays. Now, when the music has been created, and the words have been found, there remains one thing – to splash out all the energy and beauty on the tape.

Originally conceived as a trio, Corner Room has changed with the approval as a permanent member of the group, the master of effects Andrew Sosnowski. He filled the sound with new shades, allowed to convey the mood of songs with greater accuracy. Lustfully squealing organs of acid 60's and melancholic synths of early 80's, combined with modern guitar music, create vivid images and fill music with juice.

The songs gained weight and significance, as a guitarist Dmitri Halas had started to take an interest in guitar old school, and to use appropriate techniques and turns in his playing. And a time-proved going from the punk rock era style of playing of the drummer Roman Valentyukevich gave to the music ease and didn't allow the guitar experiments to alienate it from understanding, as if saying: "Look, everything is easy, let me show you how to dance ...

Need to see Corner Room live at least because the vocalist has a cool ass, and his voice flows like a mountain river during the spawning of trout, directs behind. And you are in this stream, pushing the others, but at the same time feeling a unity with them, going upstream, overcoming the rapids to the most important event of your life.

Corner Room was formed in the small Belarusian town of Grodno at the end of 2009. Prior to that, three members had been playing punk rock in "ndpanda". It had never been either pop punk (as many perceived) or acute social protest too. In addition, the musicians had too different preferences. When it became clear that a niche wouldn’t be found and it would be difficult to create something new in this music, and that efforts would not bring a sense of satisfaction all the same, it was decided to exceed the bounds to infinite musical space and just write songs, without looking back. By this time, the fourth member Andrew Sosnowski joined the group, providing a powerful synthetic support and filling in the existing gaps in the music body. The first EP «The Corner Room» was recorded by Dmitry Halas – guitar, Roman Valentyukevich – drums, Andrew Sosnowski – synths, Vladimir Veselik – vocals, bass, and it was self-released in February of 2010.

Lyrics

Hurricanes Land

Written By: Vladimir Veselik


I’m not a monster but I’m going to kill you.
I’m not a psycho I just want to see hue of your blood.
My monochrome weekdays are against your full color weakness.
No one’s to blame. It just so turned out.

The doors are nailed down. We are scared and ashamed. And long night is ahead.
A storm is upstairs. It’s time not to pretend.
No strangers, no too much eyes. Just you and me. Your tears and screams are vain.
This place protects not only from hurricane.

I’m not a monster but I’m going to kill you.
I’m not a psycho I just want to see hue of your blood.
My monochrome weekdays are against your full color weakness.
No one’s to blame. It just so turned out.

You know I had no choice, but you had no chance. Now you’re gonna die.
So long! Good-bye! My best friend for tonight.
It seems so pointless, what god would allow this? But we crossed the line.
You know it's not your fault but it's not mine.

It will be a day, the horizon will be clear.
Suffering and bloody tears will have disappeared.
It will be a day when the Garden will be in bloom.
Shoots of my deep remorse will grow from your doom.

It will be a day, the horizon will be clear.
Suffering and bloody tears will have disappeared.
It will be a day when the Garden will be in bloom.
Shoots of my deep remorse will grow.

I’m not a monster but I’m going to kill you.
I’m not a psycho I just want to see hue of your blood.
My monochrome weekdays are against your full color weakness.
No one’s to blame. It just so turned out.

Same Stories

Written By: Vladimir Veselik


The same stories – same places, same fights and same glories.
But we still have not learned lesson.
The same boring - same pills, same blades and same worries.
The same lie from different, different persons.

So why do you need for something new?
So why do you need for something new?
So why do you need for something new?
So why do you need for something new?

The same scapegoats, same anger, same malice, same weak points.
We’re waiting for miracle of tomorrow.
The same collapse – same hopes, same wings and same sun.
You've fallen and nobody will sorrow.

So why do you need for something new?
So why do you need for something new?
So why do you need for something new?
So why do you need for something new?

Put sweet melody in your heart - that is all that is all that is all you need
It must meet you expectations, it must match with your mood.
Put clear lyrics in your head - that is all that is all that is all you need
It must meet you expectations, it must match with your mood.

No new discoveries, for someone it's a spiral.
No new discoveries, for someone it's a spiral – for you just a circle.

Put sweet melody in your heart - that is all that is all that is all you need
It must meet you expectations, it must match with your mood.
Put clear lyrics in your head - that is all that is all that is all you need
It must meet you expectations, it must match with your mood.

Something to Believe In.

Written By: Vladimir Veselik


Brothers! You must follow the Sun. Follow me.
I’ll give you gold, I’ll give you rule.
Sisters! You must follow the Moon. Follow me.
I'll show you love is just a tool.

You are in the dead end, I’ve got a key.
So why don’t you just believe what you hear?
Lie to your face is your learning how to live.
Listen to me! I give you something to believe in.

Fighters! You should keep up your war. Bless on you.
Glory won't take long to appear.
You said you love, I said I'm too. Promises.
I look aside, your eyes full of fear.

You are in the dead end, I’ve got a key.
So why don’t you just believe what you hear?
Lie to your face is your learning how to live.
Listen to me! I give you something to believe in.

Will you believe in goodness of truth after you saw how it inflicts a wound?

Lie to my face. Lie to me!
Lie to my face. It’s what I need.

You are in the dead end, I’ve got a key.
So why don’t you just believe what you hear?
Lie to your face is your learning how to live.
Listen to me! I give you something to believe in.

Neverending

Written By: Vladimir Veselik


Milk of sleepiness has poured on floor.
Every sound sinks in nougat of sloth.
Like pliable jellyfish, we are in stream of moods.
We don’t divide this time into bad or good even on hues.

You and I will never end.

We are in embrace of our selfishness.
Every moment is full of sweet ignorance.
Black elephants of clouds float over us tonight.
Flow of night, flow of life has surrender to our time.

You and I will never end.
All we need is ourselves.

You and I will never end.
All we need is ourselves.
Silent mouth is hopelessly whispering to deaf ear.

Certainly, we never own that we were wrong.
This road never leads us to home.
Gnawed by wind, we stand at the height perfectly alone.
This void always will be our hold.
