"It’s a finnest electro that, live, turns into a legitimate collective of rock, if we take into account their stage presence."

Biography

Zémaria is one of the most renowned electronic bands from Brazil. They've been playing together since college and have been nominated for many prizes including Best Electronic Act on MTV Awards Brazil.

The album includes the song 'Past 2', part of EA Games FIFA 13 official soundtrack; 'Great Escape', synchro for Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 campaign on brazilian TV; and 'A Flora', which sound tracked the official MSN broadcasting for Cannes Festival 2013.

Lyrics

Past 2

Written By: Zemaria

I don't know
You didn't come, and it's past two
You should go, yes it's fine, if you're decided to
 
You can go with your friends and have a bright time
You can show them the city at night life
Put a smile on your face and it's all up to you my friend

When you'll stay
When I'm on the way

You know that you have to
You get me now
You can't deny

Sky Dive

Written By: Zemaria

I can feel so high
I can touch the sky
I can listen to your voice
I can fly and dive for you

When I'm watching the sun go down
Feels like dancing in that paradise
Can't stop staring at the pink sky
My heart, it feels beating
So alive

Great Escape

Written By: Zemaria

I want it, I want it, I want you tonight
?I'm feeling it, I'm feeling it. I'm feeling alright??
Just want a chance with you?
I need a peace of mind?
I'm not insisting on you
?I'm relaxed too
??Not gonna escape tonight?
I got a feeling inside
?Don't wanna fix you
?Just face you??
I saw stars crossing the air?
I saw some future in the end

Instant Lover

Written By: Zemaria

I've been waiting to dance in the kitchen
I run out of water
I just rather smoke in the bedroom
Than be that bored
I've been waiting to catch you in the kitchen
I run into water
Instant lover
I'm your brother
So much wanted
We're just lovers
Instant lovers
Wonderful
I've got you waiting
One at a time
