JA ĆU BITI BOR Samo sam htio biti jaka i neovisna dok sam bježao razrezao sam si gornju usnu i sve što sam ikada pročitala, bacio sam iza svojih leđa Riječi kojima su me tješili nisam razumjela Vidio sam samo šumu u kojoj sam bio gola i ostavljena Ja neću biti rob kalupima iz kojih nisam otisnuta translation I WILL BE A PINE TREE I only wanted to be strong and independant while running away I cut my upper lip and everything I have ever read, I threw behind me The words they have used to comfort me, I understood not The only thing I saw was the forest in which I was left naked and alone I will not be a slave to the moulds I was not casted out of

ŽAL Pijesak bježi s morskim zrakom, usne mičeš tako lako Pijesak bježi s morskim zrakom, kamen tone tako lako Pijesak bježi s morskim zrakom, tebe volim tako jako Ostani i jedri sa mnom translation: SHORE Sand flees with the sea air, you move your lips so easily Sand flees with the sea air, stone sinks so easily Sand flees with the sea air, I love you so powerfully Stay and sail with me

SLAVA RAŠKAJ Koje su koordinate? Odakle hodamo? Nema te zemlje koju ne znamo. translation: SLAVA RAŠKAJ / sla-va rash-kai/ What are the coordinates? Where are we walking from? There is no land we do not know.

IŠAO SAM NEGDJE, BILA SAM SVUGDJE Crvenim markerom spajam točke na karti Iako je zemlja stara ona uvijek sve nadživi Penjemo se uz planine da bi vidjeli šume Potoci postaju rijeke, a doline mora Crvenim markerom spajam točke na karti Sada smo još tu, a sutra krećemo na put Crvenim markerom crtam rogove kombiju Odvedi nas nekamo, ne želim više gledati kraj translation: WENT SOMEWHERE, BEEN EVERYWHERE Connecting dots on a map, with a red marker Even though the earth is old, she outlives all We climb mountains to see forests Streams turn into rivers, valleys into seas Connecting dots on a map, with a red marker Now we are still here, tomorrow we are setting off Drawing horns on the van, with a red marker Take us somewhere, I no longer want to be seeing the end

SLAVENSKA BAJKA čćdžđ Često činidba učini sreću! Leteći ćilim i stolčić, čokančić i parče ćudoređa Džabe, znam: ćuk noću banči! U ptičjoj kući - džumbus! Džinovi đuskaju s đurđicama u džepovima i anđelima na leđima, a šaljivdžije i đavolice časno ispijaju čajeve pod čempresima. Prođimo, ćaskajmo, časkom raščinimo ono začahureno pod našim vjeđama. Dođi: započnimo! Začurlićimo sve u 14! č ć dž đ translation: SLAVIC FAIRYTALE čćdžđ Often doing creates happiness! A flying carpet and a small chair, a small pitcher and a piece of weird moral To gain nothing, I know: A small owl parties at night! In the bird-house – a mess! The ghosts are dancing with lillies in their pockets and angels piggybacking, jokers and devils are honourably drinking teas under the cypress trees. Let us walk, let us chat, in a moment's time let us clear out the cocoons under our lids. Come: let us begin! Let us howl at once! č ć dž đ

about

Oui, nous sommes bien décidés à envahir la France avec la sélection de la crème des groupes Zagrebois. Après la déferlante punk de Vlasta Popić, voici venu l’ère žen [à prononcer djen], trio basse, batterie, guitare, armé de synthétiseurs et complété en live par une VJ, qui revisite habillement l’univers graphique déjà foisonnant du groupe. Défendu par 3 singles clipés, leur 2ème album, JANTAR [ambre], digne successeur de I Onda Je Sve Počelo, s’ancre dans une ambiance globale plus sombre et mature, oscillant entre puissants orages post-rock et accalmies shoegaze-pop. Nappé par de nombreuses touches électro empruntées à la new-wave lo-fi et la douceur des chœurs en croate, JANTAR nous transporte dans un univers, onirique et poétique, propre aux trois filles qui l’ont construit. Composé au sein du plus célèbre des squats de Zagreb, Medika, où Eva, Sara et Ivona, impliquées dans la scène féministe, ont érigé leur lieu de vie et de répétition, l’album nous rappelle définitivement que les milieux underground ont encore beaucoup de choses à nous apprendre.
