Biography

Latvian band Dandelion Wine (in Latvian "Pienenu Vins") started playing music in 2005. It all began with two songs composed by Evilena - groups vocalist. First concert, given at a private party, was a success, and soon they started playing in every club in Riga. People seemed to like their jazzy and groovy stile, and, of course, brilliant vocals. The first competition they won, was "MicRec OPEN4" in 2007, where the jury said, that band members are no longer beginners, but professionals. Then there was another competition - "Tu Esi Pamanits" ("You Are Noticed") in 2008, where they not only won the first prize, but Evilena was appreciated as well with an award for "Best Vocals".
Then there were 2 released singles, one ("War") was called a leader of a month in Radio SWH Top "Priekšnams" and stayed in Latvian Radio SWH Top 20 for 7 weeks. The second single "Pour Toi" was also highly rated by two experts of "O!Skatuve" competition - Dace Volfa and Toms Grevins.
Participated in such festivals as "FonoFest", "Bauslande", "Zem Viena Jumta" and "Bildes 2009".
Now the band continues doing music, composing new songs and giving concerts.

Lyrics

War

Written By: Evilena Protektore

War

Don’t want to make any exceptions baby
I want to say that it is all your fault
Please forget about the Bible for a moment
I’m inviting you to start a war

I’m inviting you
I’m inviting you to start a war

Bring me a cup of coffee baby
Maybe it will help to cool me down
Please forget about the good times that we had and maybe
You should be afraid when I’m around

I’m inviting you
I’m inviting you to start a war

Pour Toi

Written By: Evilena Protektore

Je suis pour toi comme un livre ouvert
Et tois ma liberté
Je ne voulais te pas changer

biensûre je ne voulais de rester toute seul
Toute seul dans la rue
Et dans ma solitude

Dis mois pourquois tu n’es pas
Mon homme toujour tu n’es pas
Dis moi pourquoi je ne sais pas ton nom toujour
Je ne sais pas, dis moi pourquoi

Self-Sufficient

Written By: Evilena Protektore

Just imagine the idea of a perfect man, oh no
No inormal thoughts and all emotions under control
He knows exactly what and how to do
And universe will stop, because hi told her to

He’s adorable, hi is lovable, hi’s unfolable, unexplorable, he’s a lie

Here I come, I’m self sufficient soul since born
And, oh my God, I know, I’m the one
I’m self-sufficient soul since born

Just imagine the idea of a perfect world, oh no
No disasters, no eruptions, everything still and cool
And everything stood still until the day I came
It was in perfect order, darling, what a shame?

I’m the only one, who can figure out, how to move the world up and down
I’m the only one, who can figure out, how to turn the world inside out

Here I come, I’m self sufficient soul since born
And, oh my God, I know, I’m the one
I’m self-sufficient soul since born

Just imagine the idea of an emptiness, oh no
No more stars and no more planets, no where else to go
You can’t imagine what it is until you see
Oh, what a boring place this universe can be

I’m the only one, who can figure out, how to move the world up and down
I’m the only one, who can figure out, how to turn the world inside out

Here I come, I’m self sufficient soul since born
And, oh my God, I know, I’m the one
I’m self-sufficient soul since born

Stop

Written By: Evilena Protektore

Stop, wait up, slow down
Let your body feel the music, and the rhythm, and amazing sound
Stop, wait up, slow down
Let your body move with music, and the rhythm and amazing sound

Oh, the music’s going round and round,
I want to feel this “round & round” all the time so,
The music’s going un and down
I wanna feel this “up & down” falling down, so,
Fall down on me, down, down, down
