BandRockAlternative

We are sentimental fools! Maybe it's just because we're in love or maybe it's because there's always more q's than a's. Rhea's songs are a combination of Jazz and Pop with a rocking and theatrical Nordic sound ranging from silence to storm.

Biography

With their distinct no-guitar attitude and piano based rock music Rhea are growing into being one of Denmark's most interesting bands right now.

Their latest EP: Act of Balance (june 2007) produced by Kristian Martinsen (ENTAKT, LEAM etc. ) provides a variety a upbeat pop songs to more introvert epic dramas. Not entirely unlike the sound of prominent female vocalist like Fiona Apple, Tori Amos and Kate Bush, Rhea's sound can be described like a potpourri of rockish pop songs and more dramatic tracks both with a jazzy and borderline cabaret-like timbre.

Rhea have been gigging extensively throughout Denmark playing concerts both solo and as support act for danish artists ENTAKT and Pernille Valentin.

Lyrics

Brick Wall

Written By: Astrid Myrup

You can tear me down stone by stone
Carry me through this on your own
You have to tear me down stone by stone
I’m letting down my guard for you alone

I am an army
My soldiers keep an eye on you
Your every move I see
I have to know what you can do
how you can destroy me

if you
Invade me, I’ll be so easy to seduce
nothing can stop you from tearing me down
Invade me, I have got nothing more to lose
Just tear me down

I am a brick wall
You can tear me down stone by stone
You can have it all
I’ll carry you through this on my own
I will let my defence fall

If you
Invade me, I’ll be so easy to seduce
Nothing can stop you from tearing me down
Invade me, I have got nothing more to lose
Just tear me down

Cloud Girl

Written By: Astrid Myrup

She`s a cloud girl and you never know where she`s heading
Up ahead in the distance it`s cloudy blue of ink
She`s a cloud girl, she`s not the only one walking along this way
But she`s hard not to notice don`t you think

She`s a cloud girl you can never tell what she`s thinking
Somewhere in the horizon she`s tumbling down like rain
She`s a cloud girl she`s not a lonely star sinking slowly
But it`s hard not to notice she`s in pain

She`s cracking like the earth from too much sun
Blowing in the autumn wind as silky yellow leaves
The sky belongs to her, so does the cloudy coasts
She`s flying from her past when the night is full of thieves
And ghosts

She`s a cloud girl never steady, always floating
Up ahead in the distance it`s cloudy black of ink
She`s a cloud girl she`s not the only one falling along this way
But it`s hard not to notice how she sinks

Earthquake

Written By: Astrid Myrup

You enter into me with thousand questions
Thousand answers ready, I don`t have a clue
The day awakes, and all that it takes
To break into something new
Is me and you

And I`ll be naked, awake and shaken in my ground
Won`t push my brake, won`t forsake, but take in all I`ve found

Defences won`t be needed safely guarded
In your arms before your eyes, I`m secure
And if I won`t believe myself
I`ll try and be mature
This is sure

That I`ll be naked, awake and shaken in my ground
Won`t push my brake, won`t forsake, but take in all I`ve found
All naked, awake, deeply shaken in my mind
Won`t push my brake, won`t mistake, but take in all I find

So enter into me with all your questions
I`ll have answers ready just for you
The day awakes and all that it takes
To break into someone new
Into me and you

I`ll be naked, awake and shaken in my ground
Won`t push my brake, won`t forsake, but take in all I`ve found
All naked, awake, deeply shaken in my mind
Won`t push my brake, won`t mistake, but take in all I find

So push me, push me, feel my distance break
Make me want to feel the earth quake

Sentimental Fool

Written By: Astrid Myrup

A sentimental fool that`s what I am
Trusting people just because I can
Maybe I`m naïve and maybe true
I don`t know what I`ll get from trusting you

A sentimental fool I`ve always been
Crying over silly movie scenes
I always did prefer the colour blue
I wonder if I`ll keep preferring you

I am a sentimental fool

A sentimental fool I`ve always been
A sentimental fool I`ll probably stay
I guess it`s just my habit and my way
Of being happy `cause I sure am too
And maybe it`s `cause I`m in love with you

I am a sentimental fool

Paper Stars

Written By: Astrid Myrup

Paper stars falling from the ceiling
Just hit me like a sudden feeling
I don`t make paper wishes anymore
Look now, the stars are all on the floor

Paper stars lying all around me
But nothing really can astound me
I don`t make paper wishes like I used to
I don`t care whether they come true

Now these old stars have started losing
The grip and the sky looks so confusing
Careful, your wishes might someday come true
Look at the stars they`re just paper and glue

Maybe I am just not as full of poetry
As I once imagined I would be

What are stars without believing
Like wishing farewell but never leaving
Careful, your wishes might someday come true
Look at the stars they are laughing at you
