about

La magie des tournées nous a fait rencontrer Vlasta Popic, power-trio Croate, dans une cave sombre à la frontière croato-slovène en 2012. Alors sur la promo de leur premier album « Za očnjake », les 3 compères nous avaient mis une sacrée claque avec leur grunge sauce actuelle, parfaitement maitrisé. Les 2 chants atypiques de la batteuse et du guitariste (en croate, s’il vous plait) envoutants au possible, sublimaient déjà le tout. Depuis ils ont bouffé pas mal de route et dépassé quelques frontières, jusqu’à poser enfin leurs amplis en France au printemps 2014, sur une série de dates remarquée.

A travers ces 9 titres ingénieux et efficaces, qui composent ce 2ème album «Kvadrat», Vlasta Popic affirment une nouvelle fois leur réinterprétation personnelle du style. Mixant post-punk, grunge, voir même pop dans une enveloppe plus sombre et diablement addictive.

Track Name: Tržište
Free the Market (Tržište)

Out of the frying pan –
and into the free market,
I'm turning tender.
Fat wants to go back
to being free.
And I think it's right.
I also want to go back.
Track Name: Ako Nisam Dobra
If I'm no good (Ako nisam dobra)

I've felt it all before
All of this has already gone through
my throat
If I'm no good, what should we do?
We'll need more friends
Track Name: Szeged
Szeged

You can find us in your eyes
I never realized
We've been there all along
but we fail to see
Two lenses collide,
negotiate the power
but it's only us
who see it this way
In the eyes I'm the Other
but glass
is still a wall
...this is only fear, I'm just afraid!
Two lenses meet
There is no power
There is no weakness
This is only fear
Track Name: Slijepa naša (Mržnja)
Hatred (Slijepa naša Mržnja)

Un Deux Trois Quatre !

is easy
I just hate.
'cause I'm bored
or ignored
'cause it's old
or I'm told,
but mostly out of fear.
Why be a turd
without your fellow turd herd?
Deux merdes, champ vert
...and our field
is filled with scarecrows
its color piss gold
grains covered with green mold
In this land
nothing grows right
except for this.
'Cause we endure.
We are few, but we manure.
Track Name: Maštanje
Outgrown (Maštanje)

Everything just faded
thoughts no longer grow
we imagine ourselves
we're bigger than it seems
We've outgrown our dreams
Seems like we grow smaller
as we grow older
Neckties shine bright
people on golden leashes
Tails wagging in delight
Don't bite the hand that feeds you!
'cause bones
are coming right up!
There's nothing left – but to imagine
Track Name: Dolje
Downwards (Dolje)

Heads are buried in the sand
how do you see the world
when everything is upside down?
Deep weed shoots up high
now the roots are out, but the seeds sprout
Have we expected more from ourselves?
Naked truths are the hardest to undress
When they're off, there's only you,
left to freeze to the bone
Track Name: Ataksija
Ataxia (Ataksija)

You must be strong
since you carry it
all alone
I am nowhere near it
I am only sentience
A denied feeling
A transferred meaning
but where to?
Track Name: O vodi
On water (O vodi)

There's no one there
to be his sails
This storm
is your own
Absorbed in the thought
that he's all alone
thought
that's almost a touch.
I know it's not easy
And what would it be like
if he looked up
just for a moment?
what would it be like
if he gathered his courage
tenderness would respond
Empty words serve to distract
Under the surface, there's a sinking heart
Warm bosom still learning to swim
but the blame is pulling them down
I know it's not easy
I know he's overflowing
I know it's not easy
I know there's a tide inside
If you keep silent
No one will hear you
the body's not loud enough
to pull down your walls
