Im Januar 2012 wurde die aktuelle EP „on the tip of a leaf“ veröffentlicht. „on the tip of a leaf“ - wie Tau an der Blattspitze balancieren, Grenzen ausloten. Verloren gehen. Eineinhalb Jahre nach Neuformierung treiben VANDA. damit das 2005 begonnene Konzept an den Rand. Darüber hinaus. Indietronic.

Biography

„on the tip of a leaf“ - wie Tau an der Blattspitze balancieren, Grenzen ausloten. Verloren gehen.
Es geht darum, sich selbst zu verlieren. Etwas Magisches zu erschaffen, sich selbst in der Musik zu verlieren und beinahe zu vergessen, dass man am Leben ist. Lau Højen (Carpark North)

Wir wollen andere für uns sprechen lassen:
Die Kunst sich verschiedenster Genre zu bedienen, dabei eigenständig zu klingen und den Zuhörer mit ideen- und temporeichen sowie gefühlvollen Melodien ganz einzunehmen gelingt VANDA. auch mit "on the tip of a leaf“ beispiellos.
Fazit : Gut strukturierte, energiegeladene EP die sich bestimmt nicht als Hintergrundgedudel anbietet sondern ganz bewusst ausgekostet werden sollte.
Vor allem Live sind VANDA. sehr zu empfehlen. (Lauschrausch : Kassettendeck)
----------------------------------------------------------------

Vier starke Stücke, die uns VANDA. hier auf ihrer EP präsentieren. Wenn die Stücke
des nächsten Albums alle in der Stärke gehalten sind wie diese vier Songs, dann erwartet uns Großes! Sehr erfrischend und vielversprechend, was es hier zu hören gibt!

Lyrics

all of me is yours to claim

Written By: daniel matthes

All the things you’d say and
All the wasted time
We’ve been here before I know
Love can surely hurt sometimes
A cosy suffering but no regret
We’re meant to hold eachother. I was left
All I see is that you bound away instead
(I) don’t know which way to turn I thought we were blessed
I just want you to dare (it)
(I’m) Cutting your resistance down
I just want you to care for us
Finally swallow your frown
I just want you to dare (it)
All of me is yours to claim
No need to be scared
wash your anxiety away
I give you shelter just let yourself go
Don’t hesitate we’re all about to be blown
How could you ever doubt my love, we’re one
How could you, How could you, I’m done
I just want you to dare (it)
(I’m) Cutting your resistance down
I just want you to care for us
Finally swallow your frown
I just want you to dare (it)
All of me is yours to claim
No need to be scared
wash your anxiety away

face it out

Written By: daniel matthes

Gotta Stop right now
reinvent yourself
we’re gonna make it work
trap the nagging doubts
take that way with me
Do you feel the need for change?
Spot the horizon
Light up the haze
Go, Build a fire
We’re running riot, no u-turn now
I know I know we’re just climbing the hillside
You know You know we could gain higher ground
I feel like
we’ll face it out
Gotta Stop right now
Quit while you're ahead
You don’t fall in disgrace
Close your streaming eyes
Is it pouring rain
You don’t need no excuse
Spot the horizon
Light up the haze
Go, Build a fire
We’re running riot, no u-turn now
I know I know we’re just climbing the hillside
You know You know we could gain higher ground
I feel like
we’ll face it out

all eyes open

Written By: daniel matthes, anni kappler

Somehow it’s keeping me save
Lately I find myself amazed
What am I waiting for
Don’t wonder where to begin anymore
It’s all so quiet
so I could just forget the time
and on the quiet
it’s sneaking up and down my spine
with my eyes open nights fall away
with my eyes open nights fall away
I calm the fears
with my eyes open nights fall away
I lay my head on your chest
we’ll silently wake up
my mind’s set at rest
and suddenly I see
I could set the world on fire with ease
What am I waiting for
Don’t wonder where to begin anymore
It’s all so quiet
so I could just forget the time
and on the quiet
its sneaking up and down my spine
with my eyes open nights fall away
with my eyes open nights fall away
I calm the fears
with my eyes open nights fall away
I lay my head on your chest
we’ll silently wake up
my mind’s set at rest
I can see what I’m waiting for is right in front of me
with my eyes open ...

dust

Written By: daniel matthes

you were a flicker in the dark
but the greatest gift of all
you caught my heart within a glimpse
so I lift your name on high
i wanna feel your hands back in mine
i wanna see your eyes just once, love is blind
your just a ghost in distant light
one day we’ll surely face again
you paint the sky with silver lining
letting go is the hardest part
i wanna feel your hands back in mine
i wanna see your eyes just once, love is blind
I’d turn the world just to keep your dust
I always knew you would shine no doubt
I’d turn the world just to keep your dust
your name is echoing aloud
I’d turn the world just to keep your dust
I never thought I must leave you out
you should have grown in sweet embrace
you are mine you are mine
I keep the memory of you
I’m full of fear and dazed at once
I feel betrayed but won’t regret
all hopes are dashed within a glimpse
letting go is the hardest part
i wanna feel your hands back in mine
i wanna see your eyes just once, love is blind
I’d turn the world just to keep your dust
I always knew you would shine no doubt
I’d turn the world just to keep your dust
your name is echoing aloud
I’d turn the world just to keep your dust
I never thought I must leave you out
you should have grown in sweet embrace
you are mine you are mine
don’t wanna loose your….
cold hands in mine, your hands in mine, your hands in mine
I keep the memory of
your hands in mine, your hands in mine, your hands in mine
