Get Going 04:08
Can you feel the pain if you never come up? Can you feel the love in working so hard? Got a bad soul, I ain't got no smile Feeling empty really deep inside Got no reason just to keep alive Waiting for my rights You better go and fight Get going now! Never try to find the meaning of life Everything you need it’s all in the mind Got a bad cold 'cause I work all night Feeling empty really deep inside Got no reason just to keep alive I’m waiting for my rights You better go and fight Get going now!
2.
Running Away That’s all you can do No other way I want to make it with you You say I’m wrong And my friends are gone Trying to save my life, I’m as guilty as anyone You can look to the other side If it feels alright But it's based on a lie They keep trying to beat your rights And we’ll keep the fight ‘Cause we want to survive? Democracy awaits That’s all we all need I'm feeling that everyone has its own reality When you think about the right solution, It's running away, But all the same you're gonna stay and rise everyday When they see that you’re not thinking rightly They’ll put you in jail All the people you know they will fight everyday
3.
Hold On 03:40
Keep the sound, keep the feeling, stay around for a while You can be all you want to, in your real life as you were You gotta hold on, baby you're right So you think, you think I'm dreaming, gotta stay awake for a while I can feel your love’s around me, baby you can save me from out there We gotta hold on, baby you’re right ‘Cause you don’t have to worry, babe don’t you worry, No you don’t have to worry tonight You gotta hold on, baby you’re right
4.
Looked out the window - told me: what do you see? A great deal of nothin’, all just dull and me. Hear people laughing madly, it don't stir a thing See couples kissing they all seem the same thing Yeah they all sing the same song ‘Cause I need your smile to wake me up in the morning babe I want you girl to drag me out of bed I need your smile to wake me up in the morning, yeah ‘Cause you make me feel alright Here we're waiting long for our promised land This ain't no graceland but I won't complain Don't waste your precious time in what it should be This ain't no american dream so you might go and see What is there for you and me
5.
Old Times 04:31
Hope you try to understand all the things I want to say Think that maybe you don't know that I really loved you so See that you're gone and you made me feel so alone You were so vain and the things were going insane Keep close to all your faults, It seemed a game with bad words I feel like I'm wasting my time, but you know how it feels to be wrong Old times you leave behind, but all your pain isn’t gone ‘Cause I know the dream you lived one day now is gone, just gone away Hope you try to understand all the things I want to say Think that maybe you don't know, it's not the way to treat a friend Feel that you're gone, and you made me cry all alone Don't wanna die, If you say you're sorry tonight
6.
Love 06:02
As you can feel, love, it stays sometimes It brings about the things, you thought, you couldn’t find You've known it well, you’ve got to set it free, Oh, you can tell our love is all we‘ll ever be And if you keep this sound your head stays still Every move is real, you don’t need no other thrill Just take me home, and let me feel it too Oh please be kind and take away this blues You'd stay right here if only... oh you'd dare to Come to the way, of love, sometimes, you used to go, all the way, for love sometimes but you wouldn't know... And if you keep this sound your head stays still Every move is real, you don’t need no other thrill Just take me home, and let me feel it too And please remind me, how we used to be You'd stay right here if only... oh you would dare to Come to the way, of love, sometimes, You used to go, all the way, for love sometimes You used to fall, all the way, in love sometimes But you wouldn't know... Will you ever love me? Will you ever love them? ‘Cause I will love you
7.
Going Back 03:03
I used to make you some things you love I’m feeling down, it's all gone wrong I’m leaving right now ‘cause all my dreams are gone I used to be awake but I found out Well, the world is getting worse, it's upside down I’m leaving right now ‘cause all the things are done You can try and feed me Anytime you want to so But you know it hurts me babe Going back this way I used to wait for something to come But now I’m down, I’m feeling lost I’m leaving right now ‘cause all my dreams are gone And I don’t know what it means to me going back this way
8.
The Fool 04:21
To be the fool To be older To be away from home When you feel like it’s the end, there’s nothing like, nothing like going on your own To be relieved To be hopeful And maybe find a love But you’ll feel down in the end when it all hits back again that’s something you should know You know this pain I feel the same I used to take the weight of all, but I’m going home We used to face the rain, hey I’m going home To hear the call To be bolder To keep the things you love But I need to be myself, can’t show a happy face, I don’t know right from wrong I know you’re afraid ‘Cause you feel the threat I used to take the weight of all, but I’m going home We used to shine so bright hey I’m going home You’ll cast the fears away, but I’m going home ‘Tis how the feeling sounds, hey I’m going home I used to know the ropes so well but I’m going home I’ll wipe the tears away hey I’m going home We used to face the rain, hey I’m going home ‘Tis how the feeling sounds hey I’m going home, going home I know that we were one I know we had it all I know we were so young
9.
No Way Out 04:52
Well, I’ve gone through all this way By your side, and it’s been quite a day I feel fine and l don’t give a damn Let me see you dancing in the sun It’s alright, don’t have to say it out loud But do let me know that everything’s alright Let me see you dancing in the sun Take me to your psychedelic lands I can’t wait… When you feel like running there’s no way out Now, there’s no way out
10.
Snake Eyes 03:46
What I’m thinking I can’t hide You think I am another friend and my heart cries Got a feeling deep inside You make my day, with all your grace, but your face lies And I know my way of loving And this song is out of time But you kissed my lips and I got the kicks Keep me warm at night I can dream, all the way, all night and I’ll keep keep trying, even lying, ‘till my heart gives up I’m still thinking and I can’t lie You think I am just another man, with your snake eyes Got a feeling deep inside, But he takes my place, with all his grace, God I think I’m gonna die
11.
12.
Keep the sound, keep the feeling, stay around for a while You can be all you want to, in your real life as you were You gotta hold on, baby you're right So you think, you think I'm dreaming, gotta stay awake for a while I can feel your love’s around me, baby you can save me from out there We gotta hold on, baby you’re right ‘Cause you don’t have to worry, babe don’t you worry, No you don’t have to worry tonight You gotta hold on, baby you’re right
13.
I used to make you some things you love I’m feeling down, it's all gone wrong I’m leaving right now ‘cause all my dreams are gone I used to be awake but I found out Well, the world is getting worse, it's upside down I’m leaving right now ‘cause all the things are done You can try and feed me Anytime you want to so But you know it hurts me babe Going back this way I used to wait for something to come But now I’m down, I’m feeling lost I’m leaving right now ‘cause all my dreams are gone And I don’t know what it means to me going back this way

about

Barcelona psych rockers Stay are back again with a new striking Britpop and Psychedelic Rock album: 'Old Sounds Of Modern Music', their sixth and best LP! PRE-ORDER NOW AND YOU GET 3 BONUS DIGITAL TRACKS NOW (INCLUDING THE NEW SINGLE HOLD ON)!

'Old Sounds Of Modern Music' (Magic Mountain Records, 2021) es el nuevo y sexto LP de los barceloneses Stay, que verá la luz en septiembre de 2021, coincidiendo con sus 20 años de andaduras por el indie y rock psicodélico nacional. La banda ha dado un giro de 180º respecto a su último trabajo más internacional, The Mean Solar Times (2016), dedicando dos años (y pandemia de por medio) en la composición, preparación y grabación a fuego lento de las 10 canciones que forman parte de este nuevo LP, culminando el proceso más ambicioso en cuanto a sonido, melodías y arreglos se refiere. La grabación se ha realizado en varios espacios de la banda cuidando al detalle unos desarrollos vocales e instrumentales de alta complejidad y producción propia que recuerdan a los sonidos americanos de la costa oeste de finales de los 60 y 70, sin olvidar las influencias clásicas de la banda. Finalmente, Pablo Román (Elastic Band) se ha encargado del proceso de mezcla, reinterpretando el concepto y confiriendo un sonido contemporáneo, arriesgado y sorprendente que no dejará indiferente a nadie. 'Old Sounds of Modern Music' pretende dar un paso más en la carrera de Stay, que se reinventa afianzando su sonido personal más innovador. Será lanzado por el nuevo sello Magic Mountain, de los creadores del BCN Psych Fest, Gambeat Weekend y de la Sala Upload, principal feudo de la escena neo-psicodélica y sixties de Barcelona.
