about

'Sunčani ljudi' (english: 'Sunny people') comes as the gist of all Žen's releases with some moderate upgrades. It sounds like a manifest of their passion for meticulously intertwined genre tropes – from hypnotic repetitions of post rock to atmospheric guitar layering in the vein of shoegaze, all characterized by a genuine openness to experimentation and infused with a heartfelt vocal delivery typical of 90s alt rock. The girls have conserved the psychedelic and dreamy nature of their musical expression, which resembles the output of bands as Warpaint, Vinyl Williams, Lush or Pinkshinyultrablast. The record's sonic character with its texturally lush guitar arrangements and vocal harmonies coquettes with the golden age of guitar music and shoe-gazing, notably with epochal releases like 'Loveless' (My Bloody Valentine) or 'Souvlaki' (Slowdive). As you may assume by looking at the cover, tracks are permeated by an air of sweet melancholy that evokes images of natural motifs associated with fluctuation, oscillation and flotation. Images of summits, breaking waves and currents… images of the island of Brač, the Promised Land mentioned in the overture 'A gdje su staze?'. 'Sunčani ljudi' is like a sonic mirror-image of a long trip on the D8, the picturesque route that runs 640 km along Croatia's Adriatic coastline, evoking awe of the sublime and reminding us of humanity’s insignificance in respect to the Universe.

Track Name: A gdje su staze?
A GDJE SU STAZE?

tko će se potrudit oko lijepih stvari?
idemo se vozit bajkom po Savi
jer Brač je daleko
Brač je daleko

visoka se trava sklanja kada trčiš
dodajem ti vodu
zahvalno se smiješiš

da li se ikada pitaš gdje su staze?
je li ti sasvim u redu što se laže?
da li se ikada pitaš gdje su staze?
je li ti sasvim u redu što se laže?

AND WHERE ARE THE PATHS?

who will make an effort on all the nice things?
let’s drive bikes on the river Sava
because island Brač is far away
Brač is far away

tall grass bends when you run
I'm passing you some water
you smile, gratefully

do you ever question where the paths are?
are you completely fine with being lied to?
do you ever question where the paths are?
are you completely fine with being lied to?

PUSTI ME DA HODAM

pusti me da hodam
gradom bez balona
pusti me da dišem
s nebom što se njiše

nacrtat ću si oči
koje bolje vide
nacrtat ću si oči
bezbrojne i site

opuštena
ostavljena
nasmiješena

pusti me da hodam
gradom bez balona
pusti me da dišem
s nebom što se njiše

nacrtat ću si oči
koje bolje vide
nacrtat ću si oči
bezbrojne i site

LET ME WALK

let me walk
through a city without balloons
let me breathe
with the swinging sky

I'll draw myself some eyes
that see better
I'll draw myself some eyes
numerous and satiated

relaxed
abandoned
smiling

sunny people, they wave to me
high waves
dirty feet jumping over
shadows
everything is passing

I give my hand and heart
I want to know you

I give my hand and heart

I want to know you
I am you, your self
let’s bind ourselves with thoughts

SONIČNA TAKTIKA

vidim sve
sve
ne boj se igrat sa mnom
ne boj se igrat sa mnom
čije maslo je prije?
ne boj se igrat sa mnom
ne boj se igrat sa mnom

je'n dva tri čet'ri pet šest sedam osam
vidiš sve, a ne znaš tko sam

je'n dva tri čet'ri pet šest sedam osam
vidiš sve, a ne znaš tko sam

stvari se kreću polako
kreću se naprijed nazad
naprijed nazad
naprijed nazad

ne boj se igrat sa mnom
ne boj se igrat sa mnom

SONIC TACTICS

I see it all
everything
don't be afraid to play with me
don't be afraid to play with me
who screwed up first?
don't be afraid to play with me
don't be afraid to play with me

one two three four five six seven eight
you see it all, but you don't know who I am

one two three four five six seven eight
you see everything, but you don't know who I am

things are moving slowly
moving back and forth

Track Name: Tijelo zna
TIJELO ZNA

ona se često pravi da spava
kaže da je sretna sa sobom

ulazi iz sobe u sobu
bosa je, trči kroz planine

sa stolice visi torba puna prašine
puna starih slika

iza nje ništa ne staje
ništa ne ostaje

(sa stolice visi torba puna prašine
puna starih slika
držimo se za ruke
vrata su otvorena
livada je prekrasna
puna poljskog cvijeća)

sunce mi ulazi u oči
(sunce mi ulazi u oči)
kroz tebe vidim sebe
(kroz tebe vidim sebe)

svjesna sam
moje tijelo
tijelo zna
svjesna sam
moje tijelo
tijelo zna
koji cirkus sam ja
koji cirkus
tijelo zna

kad se voliš
nije teško

BODY KNOWS

she often pretends she's asleep
she says she's happy with herself

she goes in and out of rooms
runs barefoot through mountains

a bag hangs from the chair,
full of dust, full of old pictures

nothing stops behind her
nothing remains

(a bag hangs from the chair,
full of dust, full of old pictures
we are holding hands
the doors are open
the meadow is beautiful
full of wild flowers)

sun gets into my eyes
(sun gets into my eyes)
through you, I see myself
(through you, I see myself)

I am aware
my body
body knows
I am aware
my body
body knows
I'm such a circus
such a circus
body knows

when you love (yourself)
it is not hard
Track Name: Lov na crne tipke
LOV NA CRNE TIPKE

ti san
sav si mi san
i ja sam bezdan
bez tebe san

prošle su već jako dugu cestu
ostavile tragove u nekome mjestu
posijale sva polja i rodile kukuruz
te nastavile sjati kao mjesec kad je pun

ti san
sav si mi san
i ja sam bezdan
bez tebe san

THE BLACK KEYS HUNT

you, a dream
you are all my dream
and I am the abyss
without you, dream

they walked a very long road
left their traces in some place
sew all the fields and gave birth to corn
then went on shining like the moon when it’s full

you, a dream
you are all my dream
and I am the abyss
without you, dream
