let’s make our way to the ice house
it’s been a fine day in the West Indies
but I’d sail a thousand leagues if it meant
catching up with a college friend
who used to depend on an odd job in Constantinople
and now drives an Opel through Belize with Holiday
a hyphenated American from Winston-Salem
who runs an export company called Embargogo

what’s the opposite of being homesick
is it saudade or just plain malaise
so put down the robinsonade and declare yourself a true debonair
you know it’s unfair that life only comes up in conversations
and to my elation
this hemisphere won’t hold us here for another day
the voivodship dangerous, it feasts on strangers
it has held on to me for twenty-three years now

The Noise Sibiu, Romania

The Noise was formed back in 2011 in an Eastern European tourist trap. The four-piece band is positioned comfortably under the fairly vague indie-rock label, while privately sorting out influences as diverse as Sahrawi guitar music and disco. Lyrically, you’ll notice themes inspired by geography, 90s sitcoms and, well, human stuff.
