Early morning Hear the children play Morning coffee on the table tray And I’m leaving for a day Where your smile and your joyful words lay Touch my hair locks Touch my chest and see How we're heading to the next scene Like a mother bird builds her nest Like a pillow feather flits and rest I am wandering from place to place Sometimes I stay, sometimes I trace for the best But as your loving hands craft our song I am sure we've found our dream home

Pawnshop 04:03
I see you every morning down the street The smile of yours completes the atmosphere I wonder why you stay so silent there In the corner of the pawnshop In the corner of my heart mood swings I’m waiting for a nod or just a glimpse You look so high up and so relaxed Do you ever talk to strangers? Do they ever ask for your number? And I’m looking for my love And I’m waiting for the time to come When we’ll greet and say hello When we’ll meet and I will never let you go When we’ll stay together in the flat above the pawnshop You are a dream I never dreamt before You are some heaven never tasted yet Have you ever truly fallen in love? In the bottoms of your heart You’re still just a little boy I am sure now that the day is near I am sure we’re meant to overcome the fear Time to talk, please don’t be shy You’ll never find out if you never try What’s your number? What’s your name? Do you live near? Do you have a girl?

You’re the space that you take when I fall asleep You’re the sound that you make when you laugh and speak Nothing else can define whether you do or don’t exist Kiss me now, I could add the taste of your lips on this list Time, oh time, sweet time Won’t prove your existence As one day you’re here Next day you’re not You’re the space that you take when I fall asleep You’re the sound that you make when you laugh and speak When you hold me in your arms I believe for once That this dream that we live is about to last But then you turn on your side, I watch the universe collapse Kiss me now and pretend we’re undoubtedly made of stardust Thinking of you won’t tell me, won’t tell me you’re real I could as well think of some unicorns singing in my ear You’re the space that you take when I fall asleep You’re the sound that you make when you laugh and speak

Waiting 03:03
If you sing, I’ll sing And if you dream, I’ll dream Lying so many days, being lonely, crying Cannot really understand what has happened ‘till today I’m not ok I cry all day And if I write a thousand songs I still won’t have you back And if I kiss a thousand strangers it still won’t heal my heart Waiting, waiting I am waiting, waiting For you to come back to me Mourning, mourning I am mourning, mourning Take me out of this misery I have nothing else to do Just waiting, waiting Trying to fill my empty life without you Listen to your heart… And if I write a thousand songs I still won’t have you back And if I kiss a thousand strangers it still won’t heal my heart

Dance 03:11
Dance, dance, dance Give up anything that doesn’t bounce Dance, dance, dance Give up everything My body’s free my mind is loose When I dance, dance, dance Some feet just tremble, some feet can fly We all bounce, bounce, bounce Swirl and swing and up and down Just do whatever you like There’s no such thing as bad moves So just move yourself around and shout Some hands shake like that, some necks crack and twist They bounce, bounce, bounce Grab a pair, you don’t have to care And dance, dance, dance like this Standing is for losers so move those hips left and right Don’t be afraid to fall and let’s start the night
6.
Today is the time to live out your dreams Don’t hear what they say You’re worth more than this Just open your eyes and see what is like To finally get what you want The future is ours to live to its limits You’ve come up to this Isn’t it a great feeling? Just let all your fears subside What you deserve now you’ll find The life is yours (Let all the lights) The life is yours (Shine over you) The life is yours This is they day to fly brand new Don’t hesitate Cause look at this face And look at that smile Today is your day Your chance to shine
7.
Two after midnight is the right time to fall From the wall to watch the stars Quietly open the window Don’t wake the cats Stare at the skies We’re the best we can Oh oh We’re the best we can Oh oh The light that is going forwards and backwards Will lead us home for sure Travel with fireflies And wait for the moon to fall To fall Wait for the moon to fall We’re the best we can Oh oh We’re the best we can Oh oh

Step By Step 04:06
There’s a mountain to climb There is heaven on top Take my hand and we’ll go Step by step Are you feeling this too? Easier as we go Gravity is our friend And we’re almost there The view from above The streets seem so old The stars and the moon greet us We come to the light We live for this night Surrounded by crickets we found The meaning of life Kings of the world The feeling so bold Our hands still together Our dreams now and forever One more step to go Can you feel this too? Overwhelmed by silence we found something new “Step by step”, the mountain cries Step by step and we’re off to the skies!

All these things I’ll never do All these streets I’ll never walk All these songs I’ll never hear All these songs All these songs All these songs I’ll never write All these books I’ll never read All these thoughts I’ll never say All these thoughts All these thoughts All these dreams I’ll never live All these guys I’ll never meet All these things I’ll never feel All these things All these things All these stars I’ll never see All these worlds I’ll never visit All these moments I’ll never live All this time All this waste All my life
10.
Did you know there once was a sphere so empty and dark? Then lightning crossed our eyes and we settled down From that moment ever after we walk alone When I see you I forget what this is all about It seems we need some stuff like what there was some years ago And everything will sparkle again Let all this glitter and dust do their thing And make it beautiful again Did you know what’s coming next has been there before? We could look through that thick glass and learn all about it We have to make it easy so that we‘ll make it last This is the right moment to befriend the past
11.
Everyone notices when he passes by No one ever asks for his name He gave me a lighter once and sometimes a smile I still didn’t know who he is Mr. Everywhere Every street of Athens gleams with him Lonely as we are, he looks always alone But he has the streets by his side Thirsty to live, to hear, to see, to be bold Why does this never happen to me? Mr. Everywhere When he’s there, that is the place to be Mr. Everywhere When you smile this city finds its peace

about

Two years after their debut self-titled album, Athens based Daphne and the Fuzz drop their new album "2 AM".

"2 AM", travels through a variety of genres, combines elements from the band’s familiar sound with new intense dance and up-tempo elements and confirms that Daphne Lazou is not afraid to try new things. With Vasilis Nissopoulos (member of Daphne and the Fuzz but also of Whereswilder) in production and influenced by the sound of the French touch scene, she started the recordings of the album in 2017. In the summer of 2018 and while the recordings were completed the band decided to collaborate with Greek electronic artist NTEIΒINT, who added his own significant touch to the mixing of the album.

The result is a modern electronic pop record that expands into a multitude of sounds and moods. Space ballads, funky grooves, dance beats but also some more introverted, psychedelic elements produce a unique listening experience. The lyrics of the eleven tracks range from more extrovert in the dance tracks ("Pawnshop", "Dance") to very personal, such as in the love ballads "Space and Sound" and "Waiting" or the lyrics of existential quest in "After Midnight" "Step By Step" and in the very dynamic, on the brink of post punk, "All These Things".

Out on limited edition black and pink vinyl LP + cd and digital album via Inner Ear.
