NEW ADVENTURES IN POP 022

Nat De Abreu and Luna May met on a social network in 2011, and decided that a country as big as Brazil shouldn’t be an obstacle for them to meet and begin making music. In that first meeting, they made “Heart Skips a Beat”, the song that opens their Elefant Records debut, and which they recorded a video for themselves. The video lets us in on all of the duo’s peculiarities: an imaginary world, taken from a Todd Solondz movie, spontaneity and unpredictability, playful pop, recycled and hand-made instruments, unusual clothes that seem to be taken out of a fable, and infinite smiles. “Love Holds My Hands” is like Pascal Comelade was pushed back toward childhood by Regina Spektor or Kimya Dawson, as if COCO ROSIE had finally discovered that toys are for playing and having fun, not experimenting. A marvelous chorus, which once again demonstrates this duo’s incomparable capacity to makes songs that knock the wind out of us. “Rainbow’s End” continues to use love as an engine for excitement and happiness, and it’s yet another one of those solid songs that you just can’t resist singing at the top of your lungs, with the duo accentuating the contrasting play of their voices, taking it to sublime levels. To close, “Leaving You” uses Pacman as a metaphor to explain growing up, leaving childhood behind, acquiring responsibilities, with truly marvelous lyrics which could have worked perfectly as the music for the end of “Toy Story 3”, and which defines them as perfect composers of unforgettable pop melodies. They are without a doubt a band to watch, from a country that promises big news soon, thanks to new recording technologies.

“While he was writing his own songs, she was writing poetry. In love with photography, she created her stories while he drew his thoughts on the walls of his room. He sang enclosed in a small closet and she, alone, played midnight concerts on the stairs of the building where she lived. She played the imaginary drums while he made his own instruments… She made very different things all the same and the same things very different… until they met and realized that together they could be one, but double. Together now, they are two people, two personalities, two voices, and, more than that, a shared dream: *YouDoMeToo*”

Track Name: Heart Skips A Beat
I don’t know if I stay or if I go
Let you know all these things
Heart can’t control
Oh oh oh oh

I walk down the road
The more I think the less I know
Like a soul feeling a stranger in this world
Oh oh oh oh

I don’t need a thousand eyes
To make me feel alright
I found a better half of me
Just looking through your eyes
If you try I can believe
With you I am complete

Heart skips a beat

I wanna know if I let this feeling grow
You’ll be there to jump into my boat
And sail away

I don’t need a thousand eyes
To make me feel alright
I found a better half of me
Just looking through your eyes
If you try I can believe
With you I am complete

Heart skips a beat

Papa papau
Papa papa papa
Papa papau

I wanna know what you would say
Track Name: Love Holds My Hands
I closed my eyes to think about
Lomo, mooses, pink moustache
I realized you were always on my mind

Sweet you rock and roll my soul
Love is punk the way it blows
I just can’t hide the way I feel inside

Love holds my hands
And takes me everywhere
Together rising above this mess
I’m flying high in the shelter of your arms
I think of you I dream out my fears
I feel sparks I wish you were here
I wonder if you will go with me to Mars

Take your time move on to mine
You got me feeling like a child
I want to be as open as the sea

Call me glue stick me to you
I want to do what bunnies do
You took the scene you became the one I need

Love holds my hands
And takes me everywhere
Together rising above this mess
I’m flying high in the shelter of your arms
I think of you I dream out my fears
I feel sparks I wish you were here
I wonder if you will go with me to Mars
Track Name: Rainbow's End
Underneath those faded jeans
And the thruth find behind those eyes
Was a girl with a thousand dreams
Full of emotions hidden inside

She always said that love is heavy
It was made to be shared
Although she had a heart of glass
Does anyone cares for that?

Start losing control
Make your blue sky blush
You’re the queen of your world
Try to free your mind with daisy days
And find your rainbow’s end
Believe you’ll get there

With a bag full of nothing
And always one foot on the ground
She locked her heart
Dropped off the key
And got herself lost in the sound

With the future in her hands
She never felt she was good enough
Flying under false pretence
She knew the weight of love and loss

Start losing control
Make your blue sky blush
You’re the queen of your world
Try to free your mind with daisy days
And find your rainbow’s end
Believe you’ll get there

The more things start and seem to change
The more she moves to break the chain
Suddenly her lights were out
Happiness recalls her a smile

Start losing control
Make your blue sky blush
You’re the queen of your world
Try to free your mind with daisy days
And find your rainbow’s end
Believe you’ll get there
Track Name: Leaving You
Uhuuu... Uhuuu...

Hey Mr. Pacman
I’ve gotta tell you
I have no time to play your games
I’m taking back what’s left
From all these things you said
I cannot waste another day

I’ve been chasing all of yours
Now the rules have changed
I don’t want to be another doll

Soon you will zoom
Around this place
On the traps you lay
The game is over now

So fool
Those plans I’ve made
To spend my time with you
I thought I meant something and more to you
Now you can deal with the shame
Ah ah ah... Cause I’m leaving you

Hey Mr. Pacman
You go in circles
Go round and round in the same mistakes
You haven’t scored in my heart
Got stuck inside the box
Now I won’t take another blame

Don’t regret the mess you made
Everything you do is coming back to you
You know that life is a maze
You’re so immature
Your ghost is hunting you

So fool
Those plans I’ve made
To spend my time with you
I thought I meant something and more to you
Now you can deal with the shame
Ah ah ah... Cause I’m leaving you
