Biography

Unquiet Nights are a essentially a Rock & Roll band, a hybrid of Northern Irish songwriter Luke Mathers and Italian musicians Matteo Bussotti and Francesco Piciucchi.

Starting out by collecting Roy Orbison, Tom Petty & Rolling Stones cassettes in a particularly turbulent hometown during the Northern Irish Troubles of the early 1990s, guitarist Luke Mathers started writing songs, eventually adopting the pseudonym of Unquiet Nights under which to release songs that had been accumulating while playing guitar in other peoples bands.

Since those primitive beginnings, Unquiet Nights have continued to evolve to a stage where debut album 21st Century Redemption Songs has reached national radio audiences in the UK (BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, Absolute, Amazing), Ireland (RTE 2FM, Radio Ulster), Italy (Rai 2, Radio Popolare), and an ever growing list of stations in the rest of Europe, US, Canada & Australia. The band have played some of the top music venues in London, Turin. Dublin, Milan, Belfast, Rome, Amsterdam, and earned supports with multi-platinum acts like Bloc Party & Toploader along the way.

They are currently working on their second album with American producer Dean Baltulonis (The Hold Steady!).

Lyrics

We Were The Ones

Written By: luke mathers

So tell me again, what it is
In your eyes that I see now when I look at you
That I know we'll make it through
We don't know, what it takes
But we learn from our mistakes and we try again
And again to be so good

We were the ones who tried to make it
When we didn't have a choice
We'd strike a deal
Not to be in denial like a puppet on a string
We had a way of surviving everything
We were the ones.

We met outside of the place
Where we'd go at night to hide our own disgrace
And that's where I saw you
You said I don't think a lot
Of anyone who tries to tell me what they got
It's all the same to me.
Lieing, trying much to hard to please
It's a waste of life and it don't make you free.

We were the ones who tried to make it
When we didn't have a choice
We'd strike a deal
Not to be in denial like a puppet on a string
We had a way of surviving everything
We were the ones.
