about

"The gold mine is cleared", Travis singer Fran Healy complained recently, "the good tunes are all gone, because the Beatles were here before us. For future generations there is nothing left! "

Fortunately things don't seem that bad for the young band The Artistry. It seems there are still some great melodies able to be mined in this world and you can hear them on their new album, "Blessings from The Artistry". The latest offering from this band from Austria includes 14 Indie-pop gems, fine arrangements, sophisticated songwriting and some potential classics.

Blessings from The Artistry – with the subtle touch that pleases.

Track Name: Married By The Sea
You and I were married by the sea
And I wish you good luck
Don't regret that you're stuck
I'm in love with everyone I see
Except the mother-in-law
Strikes me with awe
My oh my! I never thought we'd come so far
Honestly the way you look is quite bizarre but cool
All-in-all I'm lucky as can be
That's a matter of fact
And my spirit's intact
All the world is singing out to me
Even Claude Debussy
Would have heard euphony
My oh my! I never thought we'd come so far
And I'd like to say I love you as you are asleep
You and I were married by the sea
You and I were married by the sea
You and Me
Track Name: Winter's Tale
Winter's night, winter's white
Standing at your door
Longing for your, well you know, the charms that I adore
So if you miss me too
Hurry let me in
Want to melt the ice away now, baby let's begin
Yes you do miss me too
Gladly let me in
In this lovely tale I've written
That's what's happening
Winter's night, winter's white
Lying by your side
In your arms there is no winter, never felt so right
Winter's night, winter's white
Lying by your side
In your arms there is no winter, never felt so right
Oh no, this time I'm not going to leave a single day
There was winter then but it has gone away
Track Name: Turn Of Tide
I can hear a foreign whisper, suddenly I find
An unexpected attendant, a call, a cue, a sign
I'm haunted by a phantom, real or in my mind
My company is ghostlike, this shadow is not mine
Uhh, the day turns into night
Then I look beyond the veil and not by accident
A fundamental turn takes grip, a blessing or a curse
A fatal shift of sight it is, I call it an advent
My life will never be the same, for better or for worse
Uhh, the night turns into day
A hidden hand turns out to hold its sway
Uhh, the day turns into night
Uhh, the night turns into day
A hidden hand turns out to hold its sway
Uhh, the day turns into night
Track Name: Romance In Allegro
A most idyllic scene, staged so kindly by the blue sky
We're out in fields of green, one sweet morning in July
We're lazing in the sun, skipping stones across the water
And nothing's to be done, no commitments, we know none
But some will call it a love-novel-fueled cliché
But yet I don't care what they say
And if they call it an immature throwaway
I really think they go astray
A cheeky little cloud dares to stroll across our blue sky
The flowers bloom so proud and a zephyr starts to sigh
It's paradise on earth, it's a romance in allegro
A yearning poet's birth and a gem for what it's worth
And when some call it a love-novel-fuelled cliché
I think that's not what they should say
And though they call it an immature throwaway
They won't ever make me go astray
Track Name: Melancholy Grin
Hey Darling, sing me a song
Cause the terrible winter is coming along
Your loving is silver and gold
But I'm heading for nowhere; it's hard to unfold... you know
Like an echo
A wind blow
Out of control
Hey Darling, sing me a song
An alleviative tune just to prove me wrong
Your loving wipes out the cold
Still I'm heading for nowhere; it's hard to unfold... you know
Like an echo
A wind blow
Out of control
Everything keeps on playing its role
For all the world is smiling right at me
The colours shine much more than usually
The sun sets satisfied and then
You tell me life wonderful but I'm afraid to die
With gladness on my side
Hey Darling, sing me a song
For I know where you are is where I belong
Track Name: Mary Jane
My Love, Mary Jane, you're forever gone
Soon will be the break of dawn, the night was filled with yawns
Sweetheart, yellow sun, clouds of tears go by
Memorizing all the years, the love within the tides
And my love I am waiting
Waiting to come home
You, my only friend - time divides our band
Never mind, I'm willed to try to get some sleep tonight
Sweetheart, lonely moon, weariness comes soon
And my mind won't even try to stay awake a while
And the world keeps on spinning
And so my dear do I
Track Name: Good Dan
Good old Dan went out to see
The pretty little girl called Nancy
But he just turned out to be
Ill-fated in this puzzling plot
The guy he was five years ago
Returned to fight another match
As self-reliant as he was
He'd come to tell him that
Good Dan, good Dan
My heart goes out to you my friend and
If you want to have a place you can hide
Well there's a million in the other land and
Good Dan, good Dan
And even if you'd have a chance
You're not the kind of lucky dog
But never mind, my friend
Good old Dan was shocked to see
The one he'd left without a farewell
Lost inside the plot as he –
Forgot about which guy he was
The clock counts three and suddenly
The scenery was bloody red
And Good old Dan, with best regards
Had left without his head
Good Dan, good Dan
My heart goes out to you my friend and
If you want to have a place you can hide
Well there's a million in the other land and
Good Dan, good Dan
And even if you'd had a chance
You're not the kind of lucky dog
But never mind, my friend
Good Dan, good Dan
And even if you'd had a chance
You're not the kind of lucky dog
But never mind, my friend
Good Dan, good Dan
You never really had a chance
You're not the kind of lucky dog
But never mind, my friend
Track Name: In Tune
Come up one morning, just before dawning, we're getting it right from the start
I have to tell you, give you a small clue, tell you it's lifting my heart
No sad lamento, adequate tempo, ain't it a promising start
Oh the time is right and we're in tune
I had a nice dream, sailed up my thought stream, conducted a jam in the park
We sang some high parts, unheard in man's arts, to harmonize with a lark
I'm not a scientist, writing on my wrist, rocking all over Hyde Park
But the day is meant to be in tune
It's still early and the sun comes out, all our sorrows are just gone
And your voice is like a melody in tune with morning's dawn
In my last nightmare, back then and somewhere, uncordial clouds were in sight
(Stormy clouds in sight)
But when I got real, facing the real deal, weather turned out to be bright
(Everything is bright)
Only a light breeze, dandling the lime trees, granting a beautiful sight
So confess today it's all in tune
Anywhere the wind blows I will follow
Anywhere the wind blows in tune
Track Name: Ballad Of Marilyn
Marilyn Makeup suffered from a very hungry heart
Decided, she dyed her hair and went to act a part to gain, oh tempting fame
What she felt that she's been missing
So Marilyn go, the stage is yours, the folks are starving for a show
Everybody lose their minds, for one like you is hard to find
Now Marilyn becomes a star, soon everybody knows that you are
And your fame's bound to grow, a face that millions know
Gone are the days of feeling low, you're high on life
Hey Marilyn you know, the cash begins to flow
And there is nothing that you cannot buy, you're born to touch the sky
So Marilyn Makeup went and fed her very hungry heart.
A faker, she's used to give them what they want, to play for them, I won't condemn
Though I fear that she's still famish.
Marilyn hail, you did succeed where Napoleon has failed
Conquering the world with style, subduing it by means of smile
But Marilyn with all your wits, is it fair to be a pair of tits?
And it comes down to your soul, you're trapped inside a role
Your fame turns out a dusty bowl, you'll die of thirst
Blame Marilyn's great plot, fake love is all she’s got
For she's been drinking from the hemlock's cup, her bliss was built on vain makeup
Track Name: Nowhere Land
Now somewhere in a foreign country
A different place and time
An ideal society
A nation so sublime
Visions of a better world
A man-made paradise on earth
A dream and not a promise
That's for sure
I see it in your face
You think it's exciting
The radiance of joy in your eyes is frightening
Now somewhere in the misty future
A kind of golden age
A race of noble character
At mankind's highest stage
Visions of utopia
They'll never get you very far
A dream is not a promise
You should know
I see it in your face
You think it's exciting
The radiance of joy in your eyes is frightening
Somewhere in your mind
Some place you won't find, there's utopia
Some place you won't find
Only in your mind
It's utopia. Nowhere Land
Somewhere in a different world
A place inside a dream
An ideal society
A mankind so supreme
Someday in the misty future
A castle in the sky
You and I will never own it
But never mind
Track Name: One And All
Springtime, gift of the sun
Reviving all the creation
Creatures, thousand and one
Singing the loveliest songs
You become what you do
With no thought of failure
Be whatever you see
With no thought of failure
Summer, child of the sun
Kissing us through all his reign and
Kisses, thousand and one
Drop from the highs of the sky
I become what I try
With no thought of failure
To be whatever I see
With no thought of failure
When you're the one
Within you, all fear is gone
Golden eye of the sun
Drifting through all of our memories
Pictures, thousand and one
Cease with the sound of your voice
You become what you do
With no thought of failure
Be whatever you see
With no thought of failure
When you're the one
Within you, all fear is gone
Track Name: Streets Ahead, Not Miles Behind
You say: „Time is fading fast, kid, and you lag. “
I say: „What an uncool thought, dear, you're a drag. “
You say: “Seems you're on the wrong track, lost your way. “
I say: “Who's supposed to care for what you say? “
You say: „You're still miles behind me, you're misled. “
I say: „World is round, now see I'm streets ahead. “
I'm streets ahead not miles behind … singing (streets ahead)
I'm streets ahead not miles behind … singing (streets ahead)
So don't bother me boy cause I'm (streets ahead)
Track Name: Reflexion
Early one morning you look in the mirror, you search for your face, yeah, search for your face
Wash off your numbness you're stuck in an impasse, you long for escape, yeah, maybe a break
Dealing with reflexion, playing with a knife
It's a thrill and it's quite fancy, surely, tempting, overwhelming, but you better take care
Late in the evening you look in the mirror, you're lost in a maze, yeah, lost in a maze
Trapped in a cell that you just built yourself and you long for escape, yeah, maybe a break
Dealing with reflexion, playing with a knife
It's exciting, it's a way to lift you up above the mortals, but you better take care
Watch out boy, don't take it all too far
If you want to know the laws enforced by god's high court
You should be prepared there's risk involved in your effort
If you want to probe the universal master plan
You should be aware the sun of truth will cause you tan
Track Name: In The Morning
Anything you say, you tumble and fall and you were born with the blues
In the moonlight's sway, you calmly talk, of feelings you see in me, and then you say
In the morning, we'll be back without the load
In the morning, I will wake and we'll be fine
There's nothing you can hide, you knock at the door, rest your head evermore
Tell me how you sleep, with your eyes open wide, waiting for the turn of tide
In the morning, we'll be here without the load
In the morning, I will lay my burden down
