Biography

Announcement:

Scroll is selected to play at the T-Mobile InMusic festival in Zagreb, Croatia on 24-25th June 2009.
The band will play on the main T-Mobile stage together with great acts such as: Moby, Franz Ferdinand, N.E.R.D., Kraftwerk, Lilly Allen, etc.
T-Mobile InMusic festival was rated among Top 20 European festivals by the Times magazine.

Scrolls' story starts out in 2003. The  first jams were held at a little place where local bands would rehearse. At then yet to have a name for the band, Scroll were formed by 4 high school friends in need of some music : Mark Mrakovcic (vocals/guitar) , Tony Mrakovcic (drums), Filip Romac (guitar) and Leon  culjak(bass). That setup has remained to this day.  Not caring too much about about boundaries of style and genre of music, Scroll played everything that sounded good to them at the given moment, it could be punk, it could be metal, it could be grunge or glam rock. That is probably the reason that Scroll is recognized as a band with a wide spectrum of influences that knows how to combine these different styles into something new.
After making their first songs, Scroll was given great reviews both by the professionals and the audience. They have played at numerous festival as well as independent concerts throughout all of Croatia, Slovenia and Italy.

The band was always interested in all aspect of music since it first began, so they started looking into producing and recording their songs. After a lot of recording in their garage, they have mastered the technique and managed to get their hands on a good deal of recording equipment and decided to record their first album on their own. Following the "do it yourself" principal , in 2008. their first album "Poultry" was released. The album was published under the supervision of "Ephenty Records", which is now the bands main publisher and has helped record music videos for a few of their songs.

Scroll, led by the charismatic Mark Mrakovcic, got some serious acclaim with their debut album. Eugene Foley, founder of Foley Entertainment, music consultant agency who represents clients who have earned nearly 40 Gold & Platinum Records & three GRAMMY® Awards for their overall career accomplishments, has given Scroll an average 4.5 / 5 mark and has shown interest in helping them develop their career on the U.S. market.

The music video for the single "Soap" has in its time reached #6 on the MTV Adria Rock Charts and has been there for several weeks.
They have been guests on Croatian National TV on several occasions, the most notable one was their appearance on the “Garaza” show where they given an interview and played live for 40 minutes.
Songs “Soap”, “Blue Trains” and “Broken Mirror” are getting U.S. radio airplay.
"Poultry" has gotten great reviews with national and international sites:

Scroll’s nonspecific yet recognizable style was also noted by the critics: “Scroll is anachronistic and unique in a glutted market of alternative/post-punk rockers. Musically covering everything from Folk-Punk to classic rock & Pop, Scroll is bound to please a lot of people along the way...” - (Wildy Haskell, Wildy’s World)

No matter what they are trying to do, make people dance, entertain them, touch them or just stay unnoticed, they always keep their childish playfulness, curiosity and honesty that made those four individuals pick up their instruments in the first place.

Lyrics

Soap

Written By: Scroll

Your words make your head seem pretty big
But will they help me understand?
Will they hide me from your hand?
Your eyes lit up just as Jesus said our God seems poor, hungry and sad
Shall we cheer him up as well?
Shall we sip a cup of hell to make us stronger?
Your son, he looks just like Peter Pan, but with a huge gun in his hand
Will it help him dig his hole
Will it keep him from the cold, the lame, the ugly...
And all we need is peace in our savannah, and our savannah is just a piece of what we need
We believe...
Your hair, it looks shocking as can be, but it's probably what set you free
But will it help you love your child?
Will it make me look so wild, so fun, so pretty?
So pretty, so pretty, so pretty, so pretty, soap ready, soap ready
Soap ready, soap ready, so pretty ,so pretty, so pretty...

Tired Eyes

Written By: Scroll

I got no words to say to you
And I got nothing to cry about
But for my tired eyes, for my tired eyes, for my tired eyes
I get mondays, you get tuesdays
You get new ones, I get used days
There's so much more to the silence when it's gained
There's so much color I have to give away
For my tired eyes, for my tired eyes, for my tired eyes...
Do you? Cause I do...Does it make you feel ok?
Do you? Cause I do... Gosh I think I'd like to stay...
Do you? Cause I do...Does it make you feel ok?
Do you? Cause I do...Does it make you feel...

Cou Rouge

Written By: Scroll

I'm gonna take, take, take what I need
I'm gonna brick bake what I need
I'm gonna take, break, break, what if i bleed?
I'm gonna wake, wake, wake, wake up these
I'm gonna give them my deasese
I'm gonna shake, shake, shake, all of your needs

I aint gonna take it from here, I aint gonna make it from here, I got lost...

Well it's a good, good thing I'm still alive
Why it's a great thing I'm still alive
I'm gonna take, take, take, make it to squeal
And it's a full moon thing, mysterious
I'm gonna break down, make a big, big fus
I'm gonna lie, love, hurt, I'm gonna feel

I aint gonna kneel to the thieves, I still need the skin on my knees, I'm not lost...

#??!#&%?!#?%$*!"#"!#??!#&%?!#?%$*!"#"!

Well it's a strange, strange thing operator, I guess I'll just stay on the line

I'm aint gonna break in to tears, I still hear that voice in my ears , REDNECK!

I'm gonna take, take, take what I need
I'm gonna take, take what I need
I'm gonna take, take, what do I need?
I aint gonna take it from here, I aint gonna take...

Beauty As Bait

Written By: Scroll

Please get up, the choice is yours
I need a friend, i closed the doors
But please get up, I'll give a hand
I heard it all, I understand
And I will hide, and then I'll breathe through your lungs

Please get up, the ground is cold
Our eyes will close, our hands unfold
Try to speak, i know it hurts, your voice is mine
It's week and burned, but evil found another way to hold us down

Now I'm ready, give your best, let us drink our lies
Safe and steady in my nest, i will lay with flies

Take a look, it's always there,
Just how they live, just how they care,
Take a look, I am afraid,
Some don't belong, and some betrayed,
I'll hold you close, from all the beasts, from all above

Now I'm ready, give your best, let us drink our lies
Pull me from my human nest, I will lay with flies
Now I'm ready, give me hate, I will borrow life
Filled with beauty as a bait, let me eat from life

P.Ephenty

Written By: Scroll

It must be lonely only loving yourself
when your voice is high on reverb
you must feel lower then the surface of ground
when you're always lost, never found

I hope you never change your way
I hope you never see the day
when you'll see that you're on your own
how it feels good to be unknown

People, faces, noise and time
help me find my piece of mind
strangers that I'll never meet
might just sweep me off my feet

Sliding through life never I crawl
cause that way you can't rise and fall
play a little prayer of mine
pray for me and I'll be fine...

You say sad words they make me blue
I have a question
does it matter if sometimes I say
I am color blind

It was never always me
it was never always you
we were always on the side
we were always breaking through

I hope you never change your way
I hope you never see the day
when you'll see that you'll want to hide
how it feels good to be untied

Bitter One

Written By: Scroll

Scarred your eyes with the games that they wanna play
evil running through their eyes
leaders come leaders go leaders try to stay
risk your life like a fool each and every day
what about those who cry what about their pain
screaming loud into the night
can't you see what the sky is about to say
crush us all with your fall throw our dreams away

[prechorus]
Sometimes, I'd like to tell the world what I think about it
sometimes, I'd like to be the one who cares
sometimes, just tired to think about it
some day I'd like to see

[chorus]
but it's hidden for the eyes to see
the bitter one's reality
if we're all then we don't care
'bout someone else's pain

It's never really one of us
cause we're all good in God we trust
we'll understand it when we're dust
that we are all to blame

Blurred your eyes with the lies that they wanna say
cripple thoughts broke this world
People cry, leaders laugh, leaders try to pray
lost their souls with their goals, blew their minds away

[prechorus]

[chorus]

You suck up all your genius lies but try to look through victim's eyes
the day will come when we'll look back and we'll be all ashamed
If tears could talk they'd shout like mad
there's something wrong the world is sad
we're losing what we never had
and we are all to blame

Nothing But A Play

Written By: Scroll

heaven seems flooded with a cool warm wave, but it's cold
and sometimes your words feel far more deeper than it shows
but there`s something in the way that everyone is praying for their soul
when it's time to reminise so much more will be for those who know

a show, nothing but a play
we`ll all choose our roles
they will choose our names
some of them have gone too far
never question their ways
when the curtains close
nothing real stays
nothing has no reason then
I need to find myself a way

how many times is a lot to define
a cry in your head, a word someone said
how much does it take, to finally feel awake
a coin on the street, a crown on your head
how fast do you heel?
how much do you feel?

a show, nothing but a play
we`ll all choose our roles
they will choose our names
some of them have gone to far
never question their ways
when the curtains close
nothing real stays
nothing has no reason then
I need to find myself a way

your act is something I have never seen
how do you look so honest
you're playing something that has never been
but that's a part of another

show, nothing but a play
we`ll all choose our roles
they will choose our names
nothing has no reason then

Broken Mirror

Written By: Scroll

There stands a slave
a broken believer
trying to set free
Cause we are all dreamers
His dream came true
For he's a achiever
he thinks he's free
but his scars they are deeper

You cant see yourself
cause you've broken your mirror
you're acting scared
cause you'd like to see

what you've become
what have you done?

Come mother nature
and I'll tell you what I wanna be
some people are animals
but I would like to be the sea
Come mister Cupido
I'll tell you what I wanna love
Some people are so down low
but I would like to be above

Broke my mirror, I can't hide it
Days from now I will be blinded
Still a dreamer, can't fight it
Cryin' loud so no one buys

Reflections of me
trying to find me
Everyone's here
they're walking beside me

I cannot feel
this anger inside me
am I alive
or am I just winding

Maybe I should try
try to fall asleep
maybe tomorrow
when I hear the beep
I'll be alive
They will find me again
The story will repeat
but tomorrow it's you my friend

Slow Motion Picture

Written By: Scroll

These times are oh so tragic
no place for inner magic
but I feel a buzz and I'm so glad to be
there's no point livin' if you're not having fun
and it's a good feeling just feeling the sun

complicated? simplify it
no need to start a riot

I found a space where it's so clear to see
there's no point looking for some sense in life
'cause it's a hot time just being alive

a mind so philosophic
but if it's choking, cough it
if you can't trust nothing that's according to plan
then you shouldn't spend time sticking it to the man
and we'd all feel better if we just set loose
'cause it's a good thing that we still have the juice

cause it's a raw beatin
it's a na na na
fast playing guitar on adrenaline rush

it's a raw beatin
it's another na na na na na
a slow motion picture
just being alive

cause it's a raw beatin
it's a na na na
fast playing guitar on adrenaline rush

it's a raw beatin
it's another na na na na na
a slow motion picture
just being alive
