Come On 03:54
I hate it when you look at me like 'hey, what's the matter with you? the sun is screaming for us to go out and walk around in woods so, why are you being so difficult? hm? pick up your clothes and let's walk till the edge of the hill let's get some air, catch some sun, pick some apples on the way come on, come on In spite of all you've put me through we've managed to come pretty far I say you look amazing and all you do is call me a liar So, why are you being so difficult? hm? i make a stand, take your hand and we start running down the hill we cross the brook, scare some birds, with you it all feels surreal come on come on

Blue 03:10
When I looked at the sky my eyes became blue You think it's a joke But, beleve me, it's a true. I was sitting there on the top of the world without wings and special care thet I felt something changed something happend with my hair Then I looked my hands, my face , my shirt, my shoe and beleve me, all I saw was a colour of blue I'm not so sure where that happened, in the sky or on the earth but I'm sitting here on the top of the world can you hear how blue is my scream Here I am in front of you And you can see that I'm not blue But beleve me, it's a true Yesterday I was blue I'm not so sure how that happened, in this song or in my dream but now it's clear and now I know how it feals to be blue

Whale Song 03:17
Some say sunset some write sunrise but it really doesn't matter because we live under water some of us glow some of us blow some of us kill but some of us fly fish fly, why can't I aging octopus is waving its tentacles you can see what he means the sea is full of predators they're coming from the left they're coming from the right some of us die and the rest of us fly fish fly, why can't I

Calling For Reason (free) 03:15
My mind is a house of cards A few are left for playing Every now and every then you can see One of them flying In a hat, in a hat In your head, in your head It's as if, it's as if I wreck it when I see it This was it, this was it Should I understand it? Want to bild my own boat To leave without returning To dream my own dream without anyone noticing Wake up, wake up calling for reason wake up, wake up calling for reason It's as if, it's as if I wreck it when I see it This was it, this was it Should I understand it? Wake up, wake up

Askew 03:38
Soft inside and built to last forever, reach the moon and throw away the ladder, far away but easy to discover, morph into particles made of you Askew … how i'm supposed to be Askew … how you perceive me Askew … how you're supposed to be Like vines and trees tenacious and free Bloodlines carving canions, meticulously mothers fathers, sons and daughters, moving on together, courageously melting into one another. Askew … how i'm supposed to be Askew … how you perceive me Askew … how you're supposed to be Like vines and trees, tenacious and free

I'm walking on Jupiter do you see what i see? a thousand trees wrapped in paper their shadows following me I thought the planet was deserted but i was wrong, you see I meet a girl along the crater and this is what she sings! She takes me by the hand we walk thru the blue leaves i see a village by the river i hear her people sing! They say they're all connected but they have nothing to eat they learned this song from a visitor it gives them all they need! Lets do what we have to do Let's fight like we used to do Can you hear me, lets come together It might get loud, it might get loud! This is a fist fight Roll up your sleeves This is a right time It has to be loud!

Tenderness 05:23
To be amazed with that thing Something so quickly parish away Every tenderness ends like that In waves, disappointed, full of emotions. Like early spring on the top of the trees Like young leaves green and soft She's born just for this moment Without past, with no future I want her forever I need her everlastingly But tenderness like freshness Only takes a bit

From an early age I've been aware of the consequences of my first step I know that every step of mine surely affects the following events That's why I'm walking never looking back still walking, without stopping just walk far away Don't want to see what happend What's new, and who was there Just give me back my shoes that I can walk from here away

about

TRUS! is a fresh trio of experienced performers and musicians from Slovenija. The diversity of their musical backgrounds is obvious in their songs, where they flow between hectic powerful outbursts, calm sensual atmospheres, joyful exuberance and back. In this enigmatic sound wall you can recognise influences from bands such as Deerhoof, Bilk, Milemarker, Stereolab and Trans Am, but it still doesn’t cover all the aspects and richness of their music. Ironically, TRUS! like to keep things concrete and describe themselves with this formula: TRUS! = 45% Alter, 20% Garage, 17% Punk, 10% SynthRock, 8% Electro New Wave.

TRUS! debut album, “First Step”, is conceived as an experiment and isn’t available as a classic phonogram, but as a free download only, which makes their music available to everyone. Since this by itself isn’t that special, TRUS! also attacks on the visual front – with an interesting booklet featuring drawings by twelve different artists. The booklet, which includes a download link and lyrics, is nicely packed by TRUS! merchandise (t-shirt, cotton bag or scarf), and all this presents TRUS!’s debut album, which will show its full potential at their live shows, where the interaction between the band and the audience is the most intense.
