Biography

Que Sera will drive you mad if you let them but you can save yourself if you know their one code-cracking super-secret: they’re not really a band. They’re a music borg. They’re an evolutionary leap.

They’re a mutant hybrid she-male rock regime of interlocking parts...hypnotizing you and beckoning you down dark corridors, into bright caves, humming with late-night industry, clanging with third-rail train-rhythm lullabies.

You will not hear them speak such things. You won’t hear them speak at all, except through sweet black crushing melodies layered with lush guitars and crooned words and chunky beats and hopeful echoes of recalled sound.

You know their voice: the throaty, hard-candy female growl that could almost be Kim Gordon or Karen O or Marlene Dietrich...but now it’s a man, and he’s too American to be Morrissey, too wistful to be Ian Curtis, and too alive to be Jesus.

You know the undeniable, pulsing bass that shakes all your itches ‘til they’re scratched, but ducks if you look at it head-on.

You know every twist in their lyrics...from giddy discovery and night-driving loneliness, to squirmy love and the persistence of melancholy and the inevitability of regret...and yet no one’s ever said it quite this way: enigmatic art-stars speaking simple syllables, unpretentious as shoes.

And just when you think that you know what will be - that you’ve found your feet, cherchez’ed Le Sera - they transmogrify and take you down the rabbit hole again. And there you go, dream-dancing after the siren songs of a seamlessly human rock robot, drifting across another soundscape on steel wheels, learning a new language that’s really the mother tongue of your home country, long ago left behind.

And just when you’ve sighed your way into borg-bliss at last, Que Sera kisses you goodbye and you wake, reaching out for more as they melt away.

Lyrics

Midnight Drivers

Written By: ¡Que Sera!

Midnight Drivers

It’s in your ear it’s been for many years
And what goes up stays for a while
Out on your own forever skipping stones and plans

Midnight drivers, blind sidewinders
They roll up against watching out

It will arrive to gather stolen nights
That measure up to pull you down
Upholstery come comfort me
The best advice that rode on by

Midnight drivers, blind sidewinders
They roll up against watching out
Midnight drivers, blind sidewinders
This road they’re against watching out

Hey

Find the answer it’s in my head
Find the answer it’s in my head
You will find the answer it’s in my head
So find the answer it’s in my head

Search for answers you can’t find out
Certain piece in my brain
And it’s folding out
Pillow against
You hate so much
She tried to follow

Hey
You’re bits and pieces and so much fun

So it’s in….it’s in my head
You will find the answer it’s in my head
You find the answer it’s in my head

Shadow on the wall is burnt
So filled up inside my
She’s walking in a park
And I
I wave goodbye….I wave goodbye
See her falling down
I pick her up
As she falls

Hey
You’re bits and pieces and so much fun

Hey
You’re bits and pieces and so much fun

So Lucky

Based in a doubt sure you’re lucky, it’s enough for now
They say they’re not really looking quick to knock it down
Oh yeah, it sounds like they’re falling down
And I’m sure they’re calling out
All that’s passed around

They say you’re not necessary get them off the phone
You’re amazed you’ve not been deserted, because you’re lonely now
Oh yeah, they say that you’ve gone again
And you’ve gone and dragged it out
You’re so lucky they’re so lucky now

In and of and all the way
Bend the arm the other way

He’s so lucky, she’s so lucky now
You’re so lucky, they’re so lucky now
