about

El dúo barcelonés formado por Anna Andreu y Eduard Pagès presenta diez canciones, cantadas en inglés, que despliegan un tapiz de folk intenso y emocional que conecta con grandes diosas malditas como Karen Dalton y otras folksingers que huyeron de lo previsible de la etiqueta “folk”.

Grabado en el estudio de Joan Pons (El Petit de Cal Eril) en Guissona (Lleida), “Tones And Shapes” es la confirmación definitiva de un proyecto firme que se balancea entre la fragilidad y el onirismo, la tradición y la falta de complejos.

Track Name: In a vision or in none
beyond a fragile bridge in a slow dreamk
takes place the last lightning bolt
Roaming the earth, groaning in caves
I wake to see the world go wild in a vision or in none

air recalled
temper the heat, save me from words flies above
the certainty of death
enjoy the feast, bugspray the guests,

When it was rotten and ready to break?
Neither fall, nor gold, nor red.
You who haunted me in life,
The healing wheel of the engine.

In future rains I’ll sit by new fires
Saints and consolations and the flame so kind.
So whatever plan you have for me
Only momma dears along the years
Track Name: Tones and shapes
For the shame of your responses about the past
I’m getting real with you
White moon, why don’t you try at least to move
Flooded with reasons I intend to treason
In this black bird fluttering tune
It gets born, raised and charred
Well that’s too cute

She heard tones
And he saw shapes
And were all warm and fuzzy
Munching both cheeks of you

So you wanna make yourself more beautiful
I’ll keep pride away
Zoomed in an eerie owl quickened her pace
Holding the questions for herself
We’re too poor to be too late
A pulse against the light
Who dares to spoil the only child

She heard tones
And he saw shapes
And were all warm and fuzzy
Munching both cheeks of you
White moon, why don’t you try at least to move
Track Name: Drop a pebble
Brother could you tell me
What should I do I’m a little prick
Drop a pebble, reach the water
Little by little does the trick

Those capital trends no long make sense,
we're on the ground pecking all tense
as gulls in city depredates,
out in the fields eagles await.

Brother could you tell me
What should I do I’m a little prick.
Oh am I the answer on time?

Punish your mom won't make you strong,
in every twinge our future is gone,
you'll be on your knees begging hype me,
ooshie gushie cold turkey.

Brother could you tell me
What should I do I’m a little prick
He said I don’t know!

And suddently here comes the snap,
on top of that the skies are black,
don't really think we'll make it through
and bottom line I do miss you.
Track Name: The flood
Burning the midnight oil in boil, mull it all over
And it’s a long way for the flood to splash on your shoulders.

Set the greenhouse on fire burn out the old patience
It’s just a temporary tick, oh my dear we cannot operate on
Would you lover go If you find me empty when everything collide?
And no more wooden lullabies will give you shelter

You know me better, the way that I’m not
You love me better, the way that I hate

Set the greenhouse on fire burn out the old patience
It’s just a temporary tick, oh my dear we cannot operate on
Would you lover go If you find me empty when everything collide?
And no more wooden lullabies will give you shelter

Remember no one will reward you, not a crack
No more softly singing sparrows, on your lap
And no more wooden lullabies will give you shelter
Track Name: We spend the days
I found your love unexpectedly.
your hand gently on my back
By night consoles, By day congratulates.
sweet lady remain what you are
And we spend the days
Spotting what is past or passing or to come

With the wild eye of a stranger
Foolish beyond
The fever of gold
Controlled, delivered and sold.

Lay down on a tide till the anchor holds
On those upon which we rely
And in your sleep found the mourn for every loss
Sweet lady remain what you are
And we spend the days
Spotting what is past or passing or to come

With the wild eye of a stranger
Foolish beyond
The fever of gold
Controlled, delivered and sold.
Track Name: Full moon pilgrim
You walk in and check who’s home
Pretty sure you’re gonna wing this though
You let’em in, You let ‘em grow
Pacing up and down the room
Chasing doves, slightly nice dressed groom
I’ll grab this you kiss goodbye
Grinding teeth, red faced, teary eyed

Drowned on sunday coffee pots
Then you go and give a fuck
And time is good spent on being young men until doomsday.
This ride is right i time,
Guarantee you wouldn't miss it,
Try to scape is so much easier.

Permission to be a stone
My darling understands it all
How good it is, How good he is
Snuggling into each others arms
As sugar turns to alcohol
Tastes pretty decent
Though we know the world won’t listen

Fastened to a dying animal in this blurry day
I won’t need a horizon
Boy, gotta hold on to yourself
Gotta take it all back, take the test
Punch the chest caress the rest
I’ll blow the sand and own the land
Be the one you can’t
Track Name: Dear kiddo
Dear kiddo I know I failed you
I was so deeply scared, and you know I’m no hero
But I’ll build my butt and keep my trousers up
Been dreamin’ about family, fools and friends
All of them schmoopy picking wild herbs
From the back of the scariest creature you put down on the ground

How I’m supposed to help you?
Dear kiddo you can be mean
Boomed out in this trap you’ve caught in
I’ll stand for the ball
Thank you naivety for pimpin’ me out

Weeping trinkets go on jingle-jangle
Casting shadows in your wise wise blood
And in a bit they’ll shackle tight, your claws open wide at self-imploding empires
And honestly, we’re all gonna be fine
Excuses and excuses, boiling salty water

How I’m supposed to help you?
Dear kiddo you can be mean
Boomed out in this trap you’ve caught in
I’ll stand for the ball
Thank you naivety for pimpin’ me out

Your eyes move so fast
And all of your fingers are so long
And I’ll step on their trail craving for your weight

How I’m supposed to help myself?
Dear kiddo I can be mean
Boomed out in this trap I’ve caught in
Who'll stand for the ball?
Thank you naivety for pimpin’ me out
Track Name: Crash over me
Underneath cold stones and soft moses
Your heart is pumping franticly.

Thirsty crows on a telephone wire
sharp the borders of themselves,
waiting for the murder's hour
Bitter cries in tree top hiding.

Dirty job and no fame,
they don't sing all the same
Nature wisely made the law.
hawk and owl in tree top hiding

Cooing sweet nothings
we will take one thing at the time, that's why
new plants were green when breezes begin
Crash over me! you've got to take the edge off it

They look, and danced, and moved and glanced
beholding each instant flies
what soon is over.

The burrow you wanted badly to keep warm
is icing your bones,
let the dream grow cold
Bitter cries in tree top hiding.

Thirsty crows on a telephone wire
sharp the borders of themselves,
waiting for the murder's hour
hawk and owl in tree top hiding

Cooing sweet nothings
we will take one thing at the time, that's why
new plants are green where breezes begin
Crash over me! you've got to take the edge off it
Track Name: The moss on you
I curse profane and holy
The earth and all its cracks
Twinkling fake blue lights from the blinking of an eye

You’re the prettiest side of a helpless youth
As the ivy on wall, I’m the moss on you

We’re down with good intentions, sustained tender chords
But shall we procrastinate 'em due to mercy of breaking dawn

You’re the prettiest side of a helpless youth
As the ivy on wall I’m the moss on you
Track Name: Sweet brittle
What happens between
how it looks from the hindsight.,
sweet brittle, to lean on,
down by law.

Pondered, weak and weary
despite considerable effort,
despite you, sweet brittle.

Black bird over black rain burns
Keep, keepin'
on heart beating.

What took you that far to glance up?
Now I'm glad you made it.
I was about to repay you, sweet brittle.

So breathe full of wonder.

Black bird over black rain burns
Keep, keepin'
on heart beating
