DAS ALBUM


Katrin Lauer aka KATELIN singt auf ihrem Debütalbum „Unsee it“ von dem Neuen. 

Davon, wie man sich aus etwas herauslöst, das man lange für richtig gehalten hat. Das ist manchmal ein gleichzeitig trauriges und glücklich machendes Gefühl.

Zusammen mit einigen anderen Songs beschreibt „Rhino Skin“ (siehe Hörbeispiele) die ungewöhnliche Soundästhetik, die das Album prägt.

Akustische Gitarren treffen auf analoge Beats und Ambient-Texturen. Es ist Songwriter-Folk, es ist Electro – man könnte Bio-Electro sagen!

Der Titelsong „Unsee it“  (sieheHörbeispiele) des gleichnamigen Albums  ist durchzogen von Indie-80s-Sounds. 


In manchen Momenten erinnert dieses Amalgam an die Kooperationen von Tina Dico mit dem britischen Ambient-Duo Zero 7

Auch die elektronische Waldmusik von Lamb und die karge Wärme von Anna Ternheim sind nicht weit.

DIE LYRICS


 

UNSEE IT 

 

 

 

I was shaking like a leaf

When I took our future upon myself

When I told you I would leave 

And said our last goodbye

 

 

In our favourite coffee place 

Yes I will keep those memories

But I am already late 

And to stay would be a lie

 

 

Cause I cannot unsee it 

I can only believe it

It’s the strangest feeling 

It’s the future I am dreaming

 

 

I said I’m sure there’s so much more 

Far beyond these paper cups

It’s a corny metaphor 

But look at the birds in the sky

 

 

I cannot unsee it 

I can only believe it

It’s the strangest feeling 

It’s the future I am dreaming

 

 

Who am I to say no? 

I can feel the world around me changing

Don’t you feel the need to grow?

If I could only explain it


RHINO SKIN



Let no one see you breaking down

It’s a state of mind 

A state of mind


In this world you need rhino skin

To stay alive

To stay alive


But my skin is paper thin

I can feel the burning heat  – it’s rising from within


So I throw myself into the fire

I’ll see what’s left when the embers die

I used to run away from pain

But now I’ll face the flame


Drink the water, spill the wine

The illusion’s gone

Illusion’s gone


A blaze in me, the pain is mine

It’s a part of me I no longer deny   


So I throw myself into the fire

I’ll see what’s left when the embers die

I used to run away from pain

But now I’ll face the flame

         


It’s paper thin

It’s paper thin

HIDE AND SEEK

Sunday morning you’re playing outside 

The lawn wet with dew it’s peaceful and quiet 

Someone has told you your oyster’s the world 

Still, you dream in your garden you’ll find its pearl 

 

Your favorite game is hide and seek

All on your own you play it week after week 

But no matter where you seek, you just won’t be found

Cause you are the loneliest guy in town

 

Play it by the rules

No exception

Freedom is for fools

Read the instructions

Control your actions

 

People walk past the fence of your house

You can almost reach them but you’re the odd one out

What is it that keeps you from joining us all?

How come you’re so bent on keeping your world small?

 

Sometimes you dare to leave your place

But to you all of us are just a disgrace

You’re quick to return close your garden gate 

It’s only here that you’re feeling safe

 

You count down the number one by one

You stop at 100 and shout here I come
