2.
and you know how i’m feeling you can read it in my eyes i was never good at disguise or deceiving you bad though you made up your own stories just to satisfy that mind In your underwater garden where the dream keeps running and i, i wanna be just like that yeah, swim off and don’t look back yeah i, i wanna be just like that yeah swim off and don’t look back and i feel kind of sorry for your life that’s without air you were never right for this one so you’re better off down there where you chose a fantasy world over truth before your eyes it’s really silly baby you’ve bought your own lies and i, i wanna be just like that yeah, swim off and don’t look back yeah i, i wanna be just like that yeah swim off and don’t look back social paranoia it’s going round your skull it snatched up all your questions yeah it’s stealing your glow yeah it’s stealing your glow yeah it’s stealing your glow yeah it’s stealing your glow in your underwater garden

settle down baby it’s okay and when it’s not i’ll see it in that face those eyes can’t lie to me can’t imagine baby there’s no words if i’m this way then i know your world isn’t working quite like it really should yeah it’s okay to live how you want to live with nothing in the way you give all you gotta give but on that day the sun was stolen from our skies and now that there’s no day i never get to see those eyes whatever makes her mad whatever makes her sad whatever makes her happy won’t be long baby ‘till it’s time to put it back and get on with this life we really are the very lucky ones don’t switch off baby know your mind and while you wait i’m kicking down the doors the man needs for it’s profit wars yeah it’s okay to live how you want to live with nothing in the way you give all you gotta give but on that day the sun was stolen from our skies and now that there’s no day i never get to see those eyes whatever makes her mad whatever makes her sad whatever makes her happy

about

Bath, Angleterre.
Pur produit d’une région où la pop est comme une deuxième religion (et qui a vu éclore de fait quelques idoles incontournables) Reuben Myles Tyghe, aka Reuben’s Daughters évolue depuis près de deux décennies au coeur de la scène locale indépendante. Avec son précédent groupe, Port Erin, il teintait les valons de sa campagne d’un souffle cold wave moderne le temps d’une poignée d’albums et de quelques centaines de concerts.
En 2022, Reuben écrit un nouveau chapitre de son histoire musicale, avec un premier album, sous le nom de Reuben’s Daughters. Un chapitre plus ensoleillé, plus entraînant et même agréablement entêtant. Mami Wata, comme la déesse africaine du même nom, séduit d’emblée par son éclat. L’album est une aventure aux teintes psychédéliques et sautillantes dont Reuben et quelques appelés ont le secret. Ses ‘daughters’ l’accompagnent en plus ou moins grand nombre. Derrière ce surnom à la fois intime et affectueux se cachent les piliers d’une architecture pop à toute épreuve. Musiciens, producteurs, photographes, réalisateurs sont les précieux artisans collaborateurs d‘un disque énergique à l’élan duquel chacun contribue.
Un collectif au service du singulier, une ruche de créateurs dont l’harmonieux bourdonnement se fait entendre dès les premières notes et glisse ensuite tout au long d’un album qui sait se faire tour à tour accrocheur ou exploratoire. Kelley Stoltz, compagnon de scène de Reuben, voit en Mami Wata "une pop aventureuse et ludique où des grooves efficaces ondulent sur des guitares slide ensoleillées. Qui aurait cru que l'un des albums les plus lumineux du moment serait forgé dans le Sud-Ouest de l'Angleterre ?"
