Pil & Bue: With a tribute to the sweet and carefree adolescents….

Pil & Bue - Select 2 Players

Pil & Bue (Arrow & Bow) are a forceful duo from the very depths of northern Norway, who despite their minimal format sound like a full-blown band. On May 12th they released their second single Select 2 Players from their upcoming album The World Is A Rabbit Hole.

Select 2 Players is a tribute to the sweet and carefree adolescents, where the music you listen to and the friends you hang out with – is everything. And later, how the thoughts, ideas, and inspirations you pick up in this period of your life seems to last forever.

Petter Carlsen comments:

«Select 2 Players is a nostalgic trip down memory lane, introducing our childhood musical heroes and the eternal fire they ignited within us. Whether it is on stage or in rehearsals, Gøran Johanson and I both share a fundamental love for creating and playing music».

«The title is a nudge back to our Nintendo-playing days as kids in the 90ties. As for the song itself it has nothing to do with computers or gaming, but is rather an entirely analogue composition, written and created in a rehearsal space in the world´s most northern city, Hammerfest».

«But we had fun and we were loud. Just like back then».

Lyrics:

we’re so much older now

but still so young

here we go here we go

time is a machine made for speed

if you feel it, then you know

it will grow, here we go

this is the perfect way

perfect for slowing down time

over and over the aim;

to replicate excitement

you were my

you were my road to fortune

not in terms of gold, no,

it goes way more deep than that.

It resonates in you

and now it does in me too

here we go, let it grow

the perfect way

of slowing down time

if you feel it, then you know

(it will grow, here we go)

no prophecies about the future

it’s only the here and the now

it’s always touch and go

but what can we do but to stay true and let it show

the fear of letting go

but what can we do but to stay true and let it glow,

and let it grow

over and over again;

we replicate excitement

traveling back

to days when we were young and rootless

nowhere to belong

but then we heard your songs

And suddenly we felt it too

this is our way of thanking you!

here we go, let it grow

the perfect way

of slowing down time

if you feel it, then you know

(it will grow, here we go)

the perfect fix

it’s only the here and the now

it’s always touch and go

but what can we do but to stay true and let it show

the fear of losing glow

what can we do but to stay true and let it grow, and

let it grow

let it show

here we go

let it grow

here we glow

here we go go go go go

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6031 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
