Club Mentality

Because I just started exploring the music of Two Door Cinema Club and I find their Reading 2012 set addicting. 😀

Maybe someday,
You’ll be somewhere
Talking to me
As if you knew me,
Saying, “I’ll be home for next year, darling.
I’ll be home for next year.”

Aaaaanddddd (I can’t even say this without getting excited! haha), the Bombay Bicycle Club set of course!

I’m currently loving Take the Right One from A Different Kind of Fix although they don’t usually perform this song in the festivals.  It has really great lyrics though.

You’ll steal this one when all is over
You’ll go and you can see all you gave her
You’ll flee the door, your eyes glowing
She’s there but you can’t keep on going

New York

I love this song! The desperation is breathtaking.

The lone neon nights
And the ache of the ocean
And the fire that was starting to spark
I miss it all from the love to the lightning
And the lack of it snaps me in two
Just give me a sign
There’s an end with a beginning
To the quiet chaos driving me mad

Lucy Rose: With all the Zeal of the Rehabilitated

Lucy Rose has got to be the most amazing girl in the music industry today! I totally love her! Her songs have an honesty that is inspiring. And her angelic voice just transports listeners to a cloud. See? I’m gushing! That’s her effect on people! Hahaha! I haven’t witnessed her performance in person but I would love to, and really looking forward to it, in the future. And can I just say how incredibly perfect she and Jack Steadman of Bombay Bicycle Club (which I totally love too!) are for each other! Damn, their chemistry oozes through the screen!hahaha Amazing musicians! 😀

Authenticity and originality demand roots but don’t demand frontiers.

I just want to share this. Things my favorite French singer Camille Dalmais believes in.

It makes sense, especially in our times. 😀

 

Here is a paradox, she says. Authenticity and originality demand roots but don’t demand frontiers. Her hope for herself is to be successful in France but also abroad, not as a “French singer”, but as someone defined by her lack of national definition. “I’ve never thought of being a ‘French’, a made-in-France artist. I really feel like belonging to a country is completely old-fashioned. I really don’t identify with that. I think art is not about that. It’s about talking about your roots, and references, and of course that’s important, but it’s about being universal really. It’s about thinking about frontiers differently – geographical frontiers but also frontiers of your mind, of genres.”

Camille has extraordinary self-assurance. She does admit, however, to being scared of one thing: success. She says success can be liberating in the sense that it can allow you to choose your own path, and choose the people you work with but it can also be a tyranny, a prison.

“I think you have to tame success,” she says. “The problem with success is that, after a little time it asks you something. It’s expecting something from you. You know this phenomenon. It expects something from you.”
