Biography

There is something always missing from Mika Vember's biography - perhaps it is an essence only found in performance. Between vocal chords she seems to play like a violin or a tribute to Jolie Holland, and the delicate fondness her fingers have for her nylon-stringed guitar - there is something that remains indescribable. While music is best heard, some artists need to be felt in order to have you flutter. That's the case with Miss Vember.

Lyrics

Sub Aqua

Written By: Mika Vember

Turquoise blue
Lizard skin
Shimmering
So bright from the outside

Filtered light
Mollusk night
These are true
ocean - colors

It's drowned out sound
It's endless space and motion
it’s a fishy place
for me to stay

My senses are
watered down
I'm breathing through my rubber skin
Surfacing
I keep moving
to where I hope "up" could be found

and it's about time
and it's about space and motion
it's about time
to emerge
and it's about time
and it's about space and motion
it's about time
to emerge

Once up, will the light cut my eyes
and skin
walking
seems beyond me

and it's about time
and it's about space and motion
it's about time
to let go
and it's about time
and it's about space and motion
it's about time
to let go

Rubberband

Written By: Mika Vember

don't ask a rubber band to relax
don't force, don't force
don't ask a rubber band to relax
don't push, don't push

don't take away the tension, watch it snap-
take away the tension, watch it snap
'cause it will snap


don't ask a girl like her to stay
don't force, don't force
don't ask a girl like her to stay
don't push, don't push

don't try and hold a river in your hand
you can´t hold a river in your hand -let it flow....

instrumental

don't try and hold a river in your hand
you can´t hold a river in your hand -let it flow....
