BandPopFolk

YuLeS does pure Pop songs with little touches of Folk. "These songs are so faultless...This is rich, heartwarming stuff" "The result is, strangely, Americana at its finest. Here stands a duo living in France who has more in common with Nashville than some of the Nashville artists I’ve heard."

Biography

Two brothers brought up in a house full of vinyl records, books and music instruments.
Father listens to Leonard Cohen with rapt attention and worships Paul McCartney while Mother is thrilled by Simon & Garfunkel's sound.
The discovery of "God Only Knows" is a total shock to them and they have no more doubts about what they want to do as they grow up. By choosing music, they want to keep communicating in an emotional way with their parents by prolonging their childhood.
Armed with their hypersensitivity and differences, the two gifted young lads try to imagine the perfect meeting between "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "Famous Blue Raincoat" attempting to offer people what they feel by listening to their peers.
An acoustic guitar, a piano and a Moleskine notebook are what Bertrand and Guillaume need to write their pop songs fed with folk and rock music, melancholy love ballads, introspection and elegance.
Both very independent and multi-talented musicians, they spend a lot of time in their home studio to put the final touches to their songs searching for the liberating arrangements.
Once this hard work is accomplished, taking the songs to the stage is the step where they can free all the energy contained in their quest of sound.
To these esthetes, honesty is a line of conduct and they have the deepest respect for songwriters who, like them, live for their songs.
Translating into music what your heart tells you is like putting words on the untouchable and that is what YuLeS is trying to do.

Lyrics

Desperation Land

Written By: YuLeS

The fuck you spread puts you in a mess
Each word you say is a lamb to bless
You build my shell with venom and distress
I could not save you from your loneliness

Well I drove you to the end
Where the flowers grow into pain
And the mud replaces rain
Just like a desperation land
Like a desperation land

Your crap bounces off me
Your crap bounces off me

The fuck you spread puts you in a mess
Each word you say is a lamb to bless
Meaningful nightmares, flashes of consciousness
I take my leave to you and your darkness

Well I drove you to the end
Where possession is in vain
And where friends forget your name
Like a desperation land
Like a desperation land

Your crap bounces off me
Your crap bounces off me

Lalalala…

Sarah

Written By: YuLeS

She's a thorn stuck in my heart
A butterfly in my stomach
She's the race into my veins
She's the air inside my breath

She's the mess inside my brain
She's the quiet in my head
She's the comfort when I’m weary
She's the soundness when I’m shaky

I lean on you
Angel, angel
I lean on you
Sarah, Sarah

Carry On

Written By: YuLeS

Come on
Get up
You must go on

And now you feel so crushed

The end is not near,
The curfew’s gone

Hey Pain
Move over and leave Love alone

Now that the world seems much heavier then x 2

Disaster is not what you’ve known
Wait your turn and carry on
And carry on
And carry on

Take a breath
Take a long breath
And walk in front

Don’t fall back on your easiest painful days
Find yourself a life that matters

Be alive
Stay strong
And carry on
And carry on

Now that the world seems much heavier then x 2

(Welcome to the real world)

Come on, get up and carry on
Hold on, get up, stay strong
