Sun Travellers

Sun Travellers

 Amsterdam, North Holland, NLD
BandRockJam

The Sun Travellers, based in Amsterdam, Holland, love infusing Psychedelic food for your ears, with a deeply layered and spacey sound, and solid roots in Classic Rock and Prog/Hard Rock.
The lyrics are not for a light reading, travelling the infinite distance of an introspective journey, searching the thin line of our dreams and trying to capture the visions.
Crisis? What crisis? One of cosmic proportions, like parachuted on a planet within a nebula of multiple feeble Suns.

Biography

The Sun Travellers formed in 2006 by multi-national members based in Amsterdam, Holland, where they met while building their Music Technology curriculum at SAE.

"The band were formed by two Italians, a Swede and a Scot... there's a joke in there somewhere...
The sound is distinctly retro but with more modern undercurrents. There is heavy use of guitar effects, unsurprising when one considers the background of the band. The music is not highbrow though. It is I suppose classic rock with an edge." - Chris Doe - Harmonic Lizard

Connecting the visions of Sun Travellers with a soundtrack is almost immediate. Their songs often follow unusual structures, with extended instrumental parts and cinematic effects, textures of bluesy guitar, gently piercing lap steel, and spinning organs.

Lyrics

Miss Escapade

Written By: P. Ehn

The hands of time, they seem to fade away, for each and every year, that goes by and by.
The lines around our eyes, they seem to deepen more, for each and every year, that goes by and by.
Little by little we’ll make it sometime soon.
Hey there Miss squeaky clean who stole your sunshine dream? Who took the thunder from your eyes?
Hey there Miss Escapade who stole your love parade? Hijacked your soul and drove away? Does anybody really care?
The days of our past seem to vanish more, for each and every wave that rolls onto shore one by one.
The times that we’ve had, so let’s raise the glass, for each and every laugh that we’ve had may it last year after year.
Little by little we’ll make it sometime soon.
Hey there Miss squeaky clean who stole your sunshine dream? Who took the thunder from your eyes?
Hey there Miss Escapade who stole your love parade? Hijacked your soul and drove away? Does anybody really care?
All those moments when you fought for yesterday.
Now distant memories and the dues you have to pay, all those drifters that led you astray.
Little by little we’ll make it sometime soon.
Hey there Miss squeaky clean who stole your sunshine dream? Who took the thunder from your eyes?
Hey there Miss Escapade who stole your love parade? Hijacked your soul and drove away? Does anybody really care?

It took some time to show we were no fools
Everyone's talking look up voices and colours
Floating in space a man is just dust
Walking in the sky
Will you believe?
It's scary and lonely
Can't feel no pain
I hope one day you will comprehend
What is a man if you can not fly?
It took us a while to climb up here
And you hear the lies and we feel the strain
Creatures of marvel we're smaller than sand
Walking in the sky
Will you believe?
It's scary and lonely
Can't feel no pain
I hope one day you will comprehend
What is a man if you can not fly?
Here's my new friend meteor Galaxia
It's cold and deserted we're lighter than air
Sometimes it feels we're coming undone
Walking in the sky
Will you believe?
It's scary and lonely
Can't feel no pain
I hope one day you will comprehend
What is a man if you can not fly?
