What’s happening today? conversations slide away that’s ok, I’m not afraid I see my escape loosing my mobile, my name that’s ok, I’m not afraid oh when you tell me, there’s another world around me when you show me, all the strategies behind this all those rear windows, where we often go all those false windows, where our presence is lost all those rear windows, where we secretly go all those false windows, just another fall oh when you tell me, there’s another world around me when you show me, all the strategies behind this tell me there’s another world around me tell me all the strategies behind this only silence, can I reach you in this silence? still and quiet, may I reach you in this silence? ua, ua, ua, ua, ua, ua, ua, ua

Yesterday I saw you far away from here over there, over there, over there’s not near as far as I can see I’ll call you when the time is right, when the time is right, when the time is right I will catch you looking at the other side, at the other side, at the other side, you’re looking at (the other side is the same side)

Where am I? 04:06
Move, don’t listen to your current mood deny the meaning please just move time catches you just when you don’t, you don’t, you don’t, you don’t want to move, there’s a sound that’s calling you don’t pretend to be a fool time catches you just when you don’t, you don’t, you don’t, you don’t want to oh where am I? where am I? what should I see here? I’m beyond what you can imagine, I’m between the A and B away from enemies

What did you say? I don’t know what have I sold? I don’t know what kind of language do you think I should use? what king of people do you think I should talk to? I saw something moving in the dark and then nothing, you stole all I got what did you say? I don’t know what did you say? I don’t know what did you say? I don’t know what have I sold? I don’t know stolen all my words I saw them fly away, that’s all find the courage, kill the robber weapons on the floor stolen all my words I didn’t even hear you voice won’t you call my name? I didn’t hear at all what did you say? I don’t know what did you say? I don’t know what did you say? I don’t know what have I sold? I don’t know

Far away from here, but also very near there’s a place where we can go where things move very slow all the questions that you have all beliefs that you pretend suddenly will find an end and you’re naked once again classic melodies, classic harmonies classy get aways, classy tendencies oh no is this the key? I fancy you, you fancy me I guess it’s not a false relief far too easy to believe far away from here, but also very near there’s a place where we should go where things move very slow listen to this minor chord someone said it pleased the Lord even thought it’s just a ripple on the surface of the ocean classic melodies, classic harmonies classy get aways, classy tendencies oh no is this the key? I fancy you, you fancy me I guess it’s not a false relief far too easy to believe far away from here, but also very near there’s a place where we must go where things move very slow there will be a slight delay in my timing on my way you can find me anytime I will be between the frame classic melodies, classic harmonies classy get aways, classy tendencies oh no is this the key? I fancy you, you fancy me I guess it’s not a false relief far too easy to believe

Now I know what I was really trying to forget now I see what I was really hiding from myself what I lost, what has changed, now I’ll stay it’s not supposed to be the same all alone, once again, I was there where your face is always looking the same I know I know you didn’t even hold on I know you didn’t even know me I know you didn’t even see me bullshits I know you didn’t even hold on I know you didn’t even know me I know you didn’t even see me I know we didn’t even look for it I know we didn’t even pay for it I know we didn’t even talk about it now I know, you were just looking for me so far away from here, a place where people disappear (too far away from here) do you remember, do you remember do you remember, do you remember do you remember, do you remember do you remember, do you remember will you remember me, will you remember me, will you remember me, will you remember me remember the fantasy, forget the anger, forget the anger, forget the anger

Awake, awake at dawn, not down at all, just looking for, looking for words, my sweaty hands, no sound at all, singing along what I don’t know to bring you here, leaving you there, to not give up, don’t be unfair another word, at 5 o’clock, find out my thoughts beautiful! the way you’re looking and the way you talk you know I can’t explain it all it’s something moving that remains untold magical! the way you’re looking an the way you talk you know I can’t explain it all it’s something tragic that remains untold

Lemur Catta 02:55
This place is unknown to me I can’t hear any sound all around me foot prints on the ground won’t help me baby I gotta leave, maybe stay here lemure ci-ci-ca-ci-ci-ca-ci lemure ci-ci-ca-ci-ci-ca-ci this place is unknown to me It’s not easy to see what surrounds me mind-wondering or daydreaming baby I gotta leave, maybe stay here lemure ci-ci-ca-ci-ci-ca-ci lemure ci-ci-ca-ci-ci-ca-ci

Did we gain something? did we loose something? how much do we have to talk about this, before we go for it? do we feel the same? naked on a stage? how much do we have to talk about this, before we go for it? can we call it a mistake? sure, we are on the same way how much do we have to talk about this, before we die for it? I saw your face, you saw my face

Choose a car, a brilliant one choose a way and drive so far tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight tonight, tonight, forget everything tonight floating streets a sweet embrace the panorama calls you name tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight tonight, tonight, enjoy yourself tonight we look the same, is always what we need to say we look the same, is always what we love to say

about

Sequoyah Tiger is the brainchild of Leila Gharib, songwriter and singer with a constantly shapeshifting voice from Verona, Italy. Following last year’s Ta-Ta-Ta-Time EP, Sequoyah Tiger’s debut album Parabolabandit expands Leila’s distinct musical language, dragging us deep into her dark, twisted and sparkling fantasy. While exploring the limits and hubs of pop traditions, weird sound studies and vocal experiments, she comes up with bewilderingly beautiful songs in which vintage rock ’n’ roll and present-day avant pop happily clash with electronic and acoustic elements, jagged beats and subtle rhythms, otherworldly shouts and confessional words.

Matching the customized vibe of her music, Leila likes to create compelling word combinations as shown by those of her alias and release titles. „Parabolabandit is a graft between two words that emerged during the writing process of the songs“, she explains. „Inside this imaginary word I found roots, trunk and leaves of the entire album.“ The concepts triggered by this neologism inspired not only new music, but also videos, artworks and future live performances, for which Leila will share the stage with dancer Sonia Brunelli. A „parabola“ can mean a dynamic, geometric shape, but also refers to a storytelling technique. A „bandit“ on the other hand represents something mysterious, an uncanny figure. You can easily spot all those contexts in Sequoyah Tiger’s music.

Since Leila has always been involved with collaborative projects like the performance art duo Barokthegreat“ or the indie rock outfit Bikini The Cat, this album presented a chance to handle the whole process on her own, from writing to mixing. The album was recorded in Leila’s basement studio „Vampa Club“, where she follows a kind of trial-and-error approach, discovering new possibilities by solving problems. Every input is welcome: acoustic drums mixed with drum machines, processed guitars and synthesizers, field recordings and animal calls. But „singing is the main point and the cause for this project“, Leila stresses. From the intimate crooning of album opener „Another World Around Me“ to the Chipmunk outro of „Brilliant One“, Leila passes through a wide array of vocal effects, tuning her voice to the mood of the songs. Although she shut out external influences, you can still hear echoing Joe Meek. The harmonies of The Everly Brothers shine through in songs like „Sissi“, and „Where Am I?“ has the sentimental air of a Ronettes classic. Still, you get dragged into the present again and again: The synth arpeggios of „Punta Otok“ confirm that Leila shares the DIY-pop attitude of Visions-era Grimes, while „Brother Brother“ inhabits the same weird world as Panda Bear. From beginning to end, Parabolabandit is a unique and sincere sketch of modern pop music, full of enthusiasm and inventiveness.
