Thanks for stopping by. Brickwater stands for the urge to capture a raw melancholy within good memories. And that works for them playing as a full band as well as playing in a solo setting, where rough voice landscapes meet profound lines in a punk-diluted mixture of indie and folk. A band who creates songs that invite the listener to close their eyes for one moment and to wildly dance the next – reminding them of the never ending nights and the countless cigarettes smoked with relish.

Danke fürs vorbeischauen. Brickwater steht für den Drang, die raue Melancholie in den guten Erinnerungen festzuhalten. Und das funktioniert für sie sowohl im Band- als auch im Solosetting, wenn in einer punkversetzten Mischung aus Indie und Folk grobe Stimmlandschaften auf tiefergreifende Texte treffen. Dabei entstehen Songs, die einen im einen Moment einladen die Augen zu schließen und im nächsten dazu, wild zu tanzen – in Erinnerung an die nicht enden wollenden Nächte, in denen unzählige Genusszigaretten geraucht wurden.

THE COMING UP WHATEVER There were always the forgotten ones, who were hiding from the future, shocked and overwhelmed by malicious and nefarious schemes. There were always constant seekers, which the time could not hold back, waiting so impatiently for someone to join the track.
STARVING Starving in abundance and dying of thirst in a sea of ideas and advance. Oh so many options and every single one of them sucks. So I get lost again. Oh, I’ll fight but I’m tired enough to sleep. I’ll fight but I’m tired enough to sleep. And if freedom means abdication and abundance is apportioned and holes in hears are filled? They’ll ignore and
LOWER THE BLINDS It’s not what you’re thinking, it’s just that I’m more in love with you than with me today. So don’t speak, don’t waste your breath on me. Oh please, it’s just me. So I lower the blinds to lock the summer sun out.
IT’S OKAY you can come in now, guess I calmed down enough to talk. Well, this might not excuse a thing, but all I’ve done was to try to make things right what I still do. While you keep on telling lies what you always do. It’s quiet now
MEDICINE So I sat for hours under this strange sun and now I’m getting it, and we wonder what took me so long again. And While the storm front is rolling in, on my hand my medicine. So take over this mind. We’re still suburban kids
I DONT WANNA HEAR IT ANYMORE so stop repeating your monologue. I ain’t the one that gives you what you need because I hardly can deal with this guy up here. And I don’t know the answers to all of your right or wrong questions so honey, I’m just trying to do my best with this hungry beating heart right down beneath my chest. Yeah, I want the moon since
POSITIVE VISIONS She’s supersaturated, sick and tired of all reporting in TV, radio or her fucking Facebook account. She wants to get off, she has seen and heard it all. And she prayed while she waited. Oh, we all need positive visions.
JUMPING JUST TO FALL I’m a princess tonight. And I’m sure you heard about it. Silence down, my ears need to ring tonight from the fucked sound of the show. Stumble through the audience with much too much margarita in my hair. Don’t
