Chicki I went to this unbelievably beautiful location in Leipzig, UT Connewitz, where I saw Siva. for the first time and immediately fell in love with their music.
This record is perfection for me. I could listen to any of the songs over and over again and wouldn't get tired of them.
I adore the melodies, the beats, the lyrics, the voice, the artwork, the world I sink in as soon as I press play.
Definitely one of the best bands ever! Favorite track: Spies in the Trees.

we walk in circles, read the signs and drift toward another side as we count the stranded sentiments the colours don't collide for as long as we are a part of it. you paint the walls as you try to comprehend you stand and fall as you're writing it feels wrong put the shadows in the box where they belong into the box where they belong pick the pieces up the floor you're looking for the consequence of the compromises and the demands you made but didn't want as you became a part of it sorting out caving in speeding up don't tip one over bring the spark fold it out let it sink sorting out caving in speeding up don't tip us over bring the spark fold it out wondering you paint the walls as you're writing it feels wrong put the shadows in the box where they belong as we count the stranded sentiments the colours don't collide for as long as we are a part of it for as long as we are a part of it you put them all into the box where they belong you put them all into the box where they belong you put them all into the box where they belong you put them all back into the box where they belong

I count, compare, combine the hints we find too late, your eyes turned red what has been said? you complain, regret we ever met throw away and delete all this as we watch from our seats wake us up when we move in reverse sinking stones drag our bones nowhere at all you moved, so secretly into the trees you hunt compare combine until you find some bliss and time that once was mine throw away and delete all this as we watch from our seats we won't move in reverse again now that we haven't heard from you at all

cast aside these broken arrows these worn out pillows won't give any sleep your notes say run but you just stumble through every map that send you on your way same sights in a new light signs point left, but you turned right for every step that you can climb same sights in a new light where did it end where will you turn now you cannot wrap yourself around the light when you can't read the codes and signals and your walls won't sing you to sleep same sights in a new light signs point left, but you turned right for every step that you can climb same sights in a new light

this got out of hand you're changing plans you're the scale measuring my luck the corners where we meet the spots we fill need more light you abide my words this looks familiar these doorless rooms and floors you wait for yourself to open up the tapes and dropouts will pinpoint us you played your cards aimed at hearts for the clues we don't look familiar prepared now for the stunt you wait for yourself to open up and ascend so familiar these recurring signs thrown at us telling me to open up open up and next time we start from scratch we start again and step back step back

we're the memory they'll discover we're the thoughts erased from their minds you say we're the data loss they won't notice 'till the moment when we reveal ourselves and you're hiding from the sound these empty walls can stare stop the clock and bend the shape you're waiting for the waves unexpexted fights but we'll recover you never showed your bones to the other half you're a photograph you switch colours don't give up when they have to look for you and you're hiding from the sound of these empty walls and stairs stop the clocks and bend the shapes you're waiting to feel safe and you're hiding from the sound these empty walls can stare stop the clocks and bend the shapes you're waiting for the waves

come close but don't come near your sight and sound makes me disappear in a move out of thin air you join the dots, ready to repair take the words that fell asleep wake them all up, we need them to repeat inside of open rooms we're waiting for it to tell us where to turn waiting for it, waiting for it ready to return the moves you never made will come for you whenever you set sail wrapped around a patchwork heart you watch your steps ready to make sense we walk in open rooms waiting for it decide now where to turn waiting for it hiding from it will you all return? waiting for sense in us holding on waking up

they pass as i draw one line, waiting at your door has it grown inside of you, will i wait once more? you've become tired of this frame they keep you in the lights keep moving fast, the boat just keeps sinking how far to go? we'll get out of this labyrinth how far to fall? we'll get out of this sinking ship we drew a line get over it the less we speak the more i need to breathe this in and out all the right moves in the wrong place i call my own one line i had to say to overact once more lights out, we overcome the space between our doors how far to go? we'll get out of this labyrinth. how far to fall? we drew a line get over it how to unfold? we get out of this sinking ship keep breathing for the hell of it don't you step right out of this why don't you step right out of this?

you lock the door, turn the key will you arrive somewhere else yet to decide? caught in the web of the promises you made you changed direction and your name when comfort fades into something unforseen something i have never been will you leave word with the others you deserved every pattern you have learned are you getting somewhere step over this are you getting nowhere? skip over this time you move, we stay will you leave to take the wheight off the lives you complicate you stop and stare and the fact that we have failed hits you when you lie awake in a new home and you notice you will learn from the ghost of your concern you looked the doors are you getting somewhere? you turn the stones step over them you long for more are you getting nowhere? skip over it this time don't stop look the other way

through the backdoor of a silent mistake to a room we have built to cover the aches send us down to the place where we can mend ourselves the loose ends and the plan we hold in our hands on my way out of here on my way out to there find a way out of here finally all seems near move back up, hold your breath receive and send out you stare into the dark and hope to connect on your way out of here on your way out to there find a way out of here finally all seems clear we're out of here all the plans and the gaps will they hold more than we expect? when you leave, they come here speak in voices we cannot hear when escape keeps you warm you're the light moving in a swarm when they lost what you found it feels hard to stay on the ground we stay on the ground on our way out all the plans and the gaps on our way out they will hold more than we expect on our way out we have kept what we found on our way out we arrive and stay on the ground stay on the ground
10.
you keep your fingers crossed cause now you notice we reached the halfway point having to decide now that i read your words my nose points forward we set controls back to start a look toward the gates i'm counting backwards now that we wave goodbye we tie the ends with empty hands to complete a change of plan to help us up and this time i need some light and some sleep to rest aching bones when it's hard to breathe a chance in the wings will soon make you sing only open doors to walk through

about

This looks familiar. Everything has changed. "Same Sights, New Light", the sophomore album of Berlin's Siva., is the new and shining work of a new and shining collective. Boldly and tenderly, their creation phrases music and sound, describes vast arcs in beautiful tongues. In here, synthesis suspires, and folk and pop and digital crackles get to many splendid points.

Two years have passed since the release of the band's debut "The Story Is Complete, But I Think We've Lost The Book". These days and months saw Siva. freeing themselves from the tight corset of a band-aided solo idea - crew changes, experiments, emancipations and compromise solutions set ideal conditions for a new body of work. The new old band repossessed the past, rebuilt it, got it on new roads.

Now, "Same Sights, New Light" recounts the steps and moments, taking its time with every instant. Be impressed by "One Line" climbing itself, with many heads in the clouds and at least one foot still under the kitchen table, under the notebook, the coffee and the sound card. With stunning care, "A Place Worth Mentioning" weaves giant rhythm into soft and floating landscape pickings. And "All The Right Moves" sees the warmest heart playing syntheses.

In kitchens, churches, halls and Berlin rooms, Siva. recorded indie pop gestures, atmospheres, feedbacks, choirs, saw teeth, glitches and grandeur. From these, "Same Sights, New Light" assembles the elegant sound of many perspectives. In love with details, inspired by harmonies, its instruments circle each other, talk with one voice, dress in homes of alpine scopes and cushion hideouts. They invite and inspire you, they are volatile and gorgeous, new and different and familiar.

Sebastian Cleemann // May 2009.
