Biography

Q.AGE’s eclectic sound combines elements of alternative rock, indie pop and electronica with members from Transylvania, Munich, New Jersey, and Los Angeles. Currently based in Germany, the band’s music and shows have been described to be an emotional rollercoaster ride - from moving melodies to the explosive side of rock. Music influences stretch back to The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Depeche Mode and into today’s acts like Massive Attack, Morcheeba, and Evanescence.

Q.AGE falls into the indie category, whose members interweave various well-developed musical cultures with roots in classical, opera, Eastern European folk music to modern rock and pop. Yet the songs from the band are timeless. Q.AGE’s recent debut album, Songs For Your Lonely Island, has already appeared in the European press as a Top 10 Newcomer Album of 2010. Catchy songs, enchanting vocals, and a hungry love for the stage is why this newcomer band is becoming all the rave.

Lyrics

Time Trains Time

Written By: Adam Kesselhaut, Cosmin Marica, Candé de Rouge, Senta Studer

Back to the roots
where I wanna be
but my boots are of
Chinese quality
back to the roots
it's what it's all about

I'm goin' back to the roots
where I wanna be
don't polish me
'cause I'm 23
stuck in your boots
it's not what I'm about

Time chains you
just like you're chaining me
time'll change you
and it's changing me
time trains time
when you let me be

Stuck in your boots
'til I'm 33
gonna polish them 'til
you set me free
back to the roots
come on and show me out

you shouldn't wait
until I am 43
and don't polish
Chinese quality
back to the roots
it's what it's all about

Rock With Me

Written By: Cosmin Marica, Candé de Rouge, Adam Kesselhaut

Take a drive on Mayfair
this time I'll roll and play fair
hands collide
at the end of a short ride

don't call the doctor
he'll come and break the steady flow
I'm ready for I'm ready for I'm ready for

come on and rock with me
talk with me
we're gonna go for a real vacation

rock with me
talk with me
come on and show you're last temptation

blood brothers get waters
from the well of farmers daughters
that water's for trees of planted memories

get dressed your best
come on and get ready for
I'm ready for I'm ready for I'm ready for

Burning Love

Written By: Cosmin Marica, Chris Payne, Adam Kesselhaut, Oliver Schwarzinger, Cecil Coston

as i met you the very first time
it didn't mean i thought i would go blind
a few days later i met you twice
and so the trip stumbles on danger thin ice

come from behind me
don't stay beside me
it's your burning love that puts me out of it

come from behind me
don't stand beside me
it's your suicide love i gotta have
i swear i swear

early morning late at night
and all that counts is if i get you tonight
you take me high and then you knock me down
i give a shit cause your love is all around

Scream

Written By: Cosmin Marica, Chris Payne, Nico Berthold, Candé de Rouge

gonna' be so excited
gonna' know there's something without
reason to be un-invited
into a place i've never known

inside another world
i want to break it through
away from those you know
step on the folks like you

i see millions of people
i see millions of faces scream
dance

my heart is slowing down
you stole my thorny crown
it was no sacrifice
just how you roll the dice

i'm longing for the thing
that i may never own
someday you'll realize
the loser's still alone

C The Monkey

Written By: Cosmin Marica, Adam Kesselhaut

see the monkey
and if it could
i’m sure it would

find you lovely
bouncing around.
your personal clown.

laughing, breathing
you’re in my bed
here in my head

desert sunny
your cape is red
it's turning me on.

see the monkey
everyone’s friend
always alone.

far away from
home where there’s love
confusion and moans

sung up loudly
you’re in my world
here in my curls

desert sunny
you’re cape is red
it’s turning me on

your hand came
in my fantasy land
to see me

with a tension
and pressure
i just couldn’t bare

and i'll cry
if it's morning
you know why

'cause when my promise
is worth nothing
then so am i
