It's a Fine Day, cool album of the day, fab review
- coolalbumreview.com?p=34092

"Together these two forces have created a powerful, atmospheric, mood-inducing album full of ambient electroscapes, pop infused melodies, and soulful grooves that leave you feeling uplifted and lighter on your feet. Also be prepared to bust a few moves as this music has a tendency to takeover your muscles and cause them to start moving involuntarily."
-- joshua smotherman / middel tennesee music --

""Tell Me" dips into acid jazz, before soaring back up into a lush topography of digital percussion. The most dance propelled moments comes on "Savior", a song with harmonies that almost remind you of the disco glory days of the early 80's. A futuristic portrait of dance is projected on "Red Lips" which maintains some New Wave, but fully upgraded and cyber infused. The title track glistens in the glimmer of night, as chill wave is married to a more driving beat to create a sensual combustion of the two elements."
-- hiplanta.com --

"This is one of the more innovative edm releases I have heard this year, Solheim doesn't dumb down any element or go for a lo-fi retro feel on the production, showing confidence in what he has crafted here, just as Blaunenfeldt's performance on this album is very sure of her identity and doesn't see to pay direct homage to her inspirations but celebrate the songs."
-- hiplanta.com --

"Their debut album It’s A Fine Day, is a collection of polished, urbane tunes like the icy title track, or the kinetic, off-kilter pop of “Planet,” where synths rise and fall as effects buzz and bleep about. She’s Gone” and “The Only Diva” veer in into darker territory; pumping bass and drums keep things dancefloor friendly while vaguely eerie sounds emerge from the shadows to envelope the tracks, giving thing an ethereal, intoxicating aura. Throughout, Lill-Ann Blauenfeldt’s husky, emotive vocals provide another interesting texture, injecting emotion and warmth in contrast to the often chilly production."

Track Name: Cold Wars
Frosted lights shimmer across the plains
Dried out tundra and people in pain
…no sun or rain
Mother lies stroking to ease the strain
Givin’ birth without someone to aid,
Because she has to wait…

Freeze the nation we want to get off
Somethin’s goin’ very wrong
Freeze the nation and pull out all the stops
Until the madness pops

Frosted lights shimmer across the plains
Dried out tundra and people in pain
… no sun or rain
Helpless child crying for food in vain
People dying from famine today
Because it’s just too late…

Freeze the nation we want to get off
Somethin’s goin’ very wrong
Freeze the nation and pull out all the stops
Until the madness pops

Freeze the nation we want to get off
Somethin’s goin’ very wrong
Freeze the nation and pull out all the stops
Until the madness pops

Freeze the nation and pull out all the stops
Until the madness pops

Freeze the woooooorld!!!
Track Name: Illusions
Illusions, falling down from trees above my head
Lookin’ around from flowers to holes in the ground
Sweet fragile child turned around in your mind
Without peace, resting your head on a leaf, collecting your dreams

There’s a story of a young blond light, morning night
He’s not in between, it seems
Where have we been these faded years?
When we were together, no more together

Free illusions, you cannot make them go away this time
Resting your head on my shoulders collecting your dreams
Survive little boy, singing so tender of love
Still looking around from flowers to holes in the ground

It’s a story of a young gone mind, morning night, he’s not in between…it seems
Where have you been, these faded years, now we are together, we’re still together
There’s a story of a young blond light, morning night
He’s not in between… it seems
Where have we been, these faded years, when we were together, we were always together
There’s a story of a young blond light…
Track Name: The Only Diva
Start on a notion
Setting things in motion
While dreaming of a status high
Time is passing by

Closed off and full of hate
Her mind’s blocking what she creates
Painful bouts to concentrate
She realizes that her plans might die

REF:
She wants to be the only Diva in his life
The only voice to be heard
Through his chords and reverbs
She wants to be the only Diva in his life
The only voice to be heard
Through his chords and reverbs
She wants to be the only Diva in his life
The only voice to be heard
Through his chords and reverbs

The mind the mind the mind
The mind the mind the mind is clearer

Fear of his rejection
Deepened her reflection
Breathing in the joys of life
Enjoying days and nights

Opened and wide awake
The mind is as clear as a lake
Whirling all ideas around
Till the perfect melody is found

REF:
She wants to be the only Diva in his life
The only voice to be heard
Through his chords and reverbs
She wants to be the only Diva in his life
The only voice to be heard
Through his chords and reverbs
She wants to be the only Diva in his life
The only voice to be heard
Through his chords and reverbs
She wants to be the only Diva in his life
The only voice to be heard
Through his chords and reverbs

The mind the mind the mind
Track Name: Saviour
Searching in the silence of the night
Finding no one that could satisfy my hunger
Heroes may not be so hard to find
Yet in my memory you’re more than that to me

Places that I’ve been but never seen before
Total strangers make me miss you more than ever
I know that I’ll see you when you arrive
But just like lovers we will never be the same

Mix with crouds
Talkin to them
They give me nothin’
Now I just keep loosin all my sleep
Once again I’m searching for my Saviour
Two this time maybe three
Will help me keep the pain away

I have never told you how it was
And I see how you pretend that you don’t care
How we used to talk about the truth
We sometimes need our secrets to keep ourselves alive

Mix with crouds
Talkin to them
They tell me nothin’
Now I just keep loosin all my sleep
Once again I’m searching for my Saviour
Two this time maybe three
Will help me keep the pain away

Searching in the silence of the night

Mix with crouds
Talkin to them
They show me nothin’
Now I just keep loosin all my sleep
Once again I’m searching for my Saviour
Two this time maybe three
Will help me keep the pain away

Mix with crouds
Talkin to them
They show me nothin’
Now I just keep loosin all my sleep
Once again I’m searching for my Saviour
Two this time maybe three
Will help me keep the pain away

Searching in the silence of the night
Track Name: Tell Me
Someone said this destination is wrong, I could not see your eyes I’m too far gone
If I could reach you what would you say, (what would you say?)
That this is just another perfect day (a perfect day)

Tell me if you want me, to wake you up tomorrow
Tell me all about the, places without sorrow
Mend my tired heart; give me signs about the future
Lead me inside, where the dreams are never haunted

Now it’s time to spend another day
Take you with me to my special place
It’s time to change reality (reality)
This is the place I want to be (I want to be)

Tell me if you want me, to wake you up tomorrow
Tell me all about the, places without sorrow
Mend my tired heart; give me signs about the future
Lead me inside, where the dreams are never haunted
Track Name: Red Lips
Red lips, say hello, outside the café
Walking, into the, shelter from the rain,
Raincoat, finds an empty chair to dry on
Red lips, steal the first kiss of the day
Lovers make the time go by, too quickly
They can hear the goodbye music playin’

Coffee in the cup forgot to be hot’
Gold ring grabs the coat and runs away
Empty chair alone under the table top
Lover by the door, lets in the rain

Ripples in the, puddle count, his footsteps
Café feels an, empty, silent pain
Waiter clears the, cups from, lonely tables
Pink lips, stops a taxi, for a ride
Lipstick tries to hide away the café kisses
Red lips pay the driver, then sigh

Coffee in the cup forgot to be hot’
Gold ring grabs the coat and runs away
Empty chair alone under the table top
Lover by the door, lets in the rain

Coffee in the cup forgot to be hot’
Gold ring grabs the coat and runs away
Empty chair alone under the table top
Lover by the door, lets in the rain

Coffee in the cup forgot to be hot’
Gold ring grabs the coat and runs away
Empty chair alone under the table top
Lover by the door, lets in the rain

Lover by the door
Lover by the door
Lover by the door
Track Name: It's A Fine Day
Catch the midnight train staring at the sunset, playing in my mind
I’m talkin’ to my friends; they disappear behind the mountain line
And it’s a fine day

Stranger on the phone, he takes my hand and says you’re not alone
He promised he would call me whenever loneliness takes control

And it’s fine day and someone calls my name
I hear them everyday; they tell me not to stay
I’m lookin’ after holes, someone to fill my roles; it’s time to take control

“Midnight train, Saw you on TV, fell into a dream, or into a nightmare”

Lookin’ through the window, I can almost taste the rain
My friends are coming back; they smile and say it’s time to celebrate

That it’s a fine day and someone calls my name
I hear them everyday; they tell me not to stay
I’m lookin’ after holes, someone to fill my roles; it’s time to let it go
It’s time to let it go!

And it’s a fine day ….It’s a fine day ….it’s a fine day
Track Name: Planet
Dreamin’ of a secret town
Where the city signs don’t wear a frown
They believe in love, and because of love… it’s even more … for everyone
Sitting in the garden of, this special place I’m dreaming of
And when you speak to me, I do not hear a sound
It’s even more, quiet than before

REF:
This is the planet where we live
We are the people who believe … in everything
This is the planet where we live
And we’re the people believing everything

I believe that love’s the key but it’s difficult to set it free
And to spread the news, around the world, and make love …the king of it all!
Walking in the secret park, the air is filled with little sparks
And there’s a humming sound that goes around
It fills my head … I must be dead

REF:
This is the planet …
Track Name: She's Gone
She’s waiting in the hallways; she knows she’s passing through here somewhere everyday
She knows her name but cannot speak, she’s taking pictures, but lately she’s been out of it

She’s gone; her memories keep haunting all her dreams
She’s gone; she knows she’s on the edge of sanity

She’s tempted by a little box, and then again, afraid her dreams won’t stop
(Tomorrow maybe not so blind)
In her mind she’s still confused, she never gives herself a chance to lose
(Tomorrow may not come around)

She’s gone; her memories keep haunting all her dreams
She’s gone; she knows she’s on the edge of sanity

She’s gone; her memories keep haunting all her dreams
She’s gone; she knows she’s on the edge of sanity
She’s gone; her memories keep haunting all her dreams
She’s gone; she’s counting numbers backwards till she sleeps
She’s gone, she’s gone, she’s gone, she’s gone…
Track Name: Dangerous
I sometimes wonder, when people ask me, how you do? And without you, I don’t do at all
And it’s so easy just pretending nothings new, I drink at night,
I cannot sleep at all

Dangerous, danger, that’s how it feels without you,
Dangerous, danger, that’s how it feels to be alone

The secret I’ve been keeping is still in the safest place, The keys are lost, in chaos deep inside
And you still treat me like it’s been a hundred years, like nothing’s changed, nothing’s changed at all

Dangerous, danger, that’s how it feels without you,
Strangers call, strangers, they never stay and understand
Dangerous, danger, I cannot sleep without you,
Dangerous, danger, that’s how it feels to be alone

Dangerous, danger, that’s how it feels without you,
Strangers call, strangers, they never stay and understand
Dangerous, danger, that’s how it feels without you,
Dangerous, danger, that’s how it feels to be alone
Track Name: Celebration Time
Celebration time for the dirty men of honor
Celebration days for the happy undertaker
And the rich are still getting fatter
Is there still hope for us to get better?

Celebration days for the happy little children
Tell them lies and stories of the life we plan to give them
We will give you a place by your mother
But soon you’ll grow some beautiful flowers

In the garden of stone
Your own flower
In the garden of stone
A lonesome flower in the garden of stone
Your own flower
In the garden of stone
A lonesome flower in the garden of stone

We fight for more space and the greedy get stronger
This place’s too small for us to live like we were brothers and sisters
And do we still have faith in each other?
When your best friend becomes your own killer
…and puts you in the garden of stone

A lonesome flower in the garden of stone
Your own flower
In the garden of stone
A lonesome flower in the garden of stone
Your own flower…
…With the ones you love

Doesn’t seem to ever change
Maybe we’re better off this way
In the garden of stone
Your own flower
In the garden of stone
A lonesome flower in the garden of stone
Your own flower
In the garden of stone
A lonesome flower beside the ones you love...
