Suburbia Afterlife

    Beautiful urban landscapes of sounds, mixed feelings and good mood, quiet introspection, accompanied by the seductive intensity of guitars, pure energy and positive vibe, sophisticated bass lines and explosive or warm drums, smooth acoustic guitar, nostalgia but optimism also are overlapping in their songs and are defining the Persona aesthetics, making their audience explore different degrees of joy through their music.
    For the debut album, "Suburbia Afterlife", Persona polished an exquisite yet original sound, celebratory and serious, melodramatic and classy rock n' roll with pop hooks here and there, sometimes joyful and positive, artful and cocky, that will not allow the audience to remain seated while enjoying it.
    The band’s music is, indeed, one of British influence but cannot be strictly labeled – the musical background and influences of each of the members, refined by the experience and artistic maturity blend together in the Persona genre.

about

PERSONA Timişoara, Romania

“I am very glad to give ‘album of the month’ award to a Romanian band, especially that the band is Persona from Timişoara. Their debut album contains ambitious pop songs and entertaining parts, wrapped in a pleasant cover, and also radio friendly.”

Track Name: Momentary Lack Of Passion
I'm in a momentary
Lack of passion
I'm playing, solitary,
Games on your PC
And if you open your eyes
Then you must realize
That we need
Just another direction
And if you'd know what I mean
Than you'd know how it feels, oh no
It's just another thing that she said

Sha-la-la-la
It's just another thing that she said
Driving me insane

I'm in a momentary
Lack of direction
I'm going on a holiday
Just to find a good vibration
But if you open your eyes
Then you'll soon realize
My love
It's just another diversion
If you'd know what I mean
Then you'd know how it feels, oh no
It's just another thing that she said

Do I have to confess
I'm doing my best to join you
And forget all the rest
Do I have to confess
I'm doing my best to join you
And forget all the rest
And if you'd open your eyes
Then you'll soon realize
That we live
In another dimension
If you'd know what I mean
Then you'd know how it feels, oh lord
It's just another thing that she said
Track Name: People On The Move
All the people on the move
Rushing, in the city pulse - you are
Always out of time
I'm pumping too much oxygen
I'm dizzy feeling fine

Don't you feel like this is the right time
For love

Hold on for just a minute
You have lost direction
Do you wanna cross the limit?
We offer no protection
I am running out of time
I'm pumping too much oxygen
I'm dizzy feeling fine

Don't you feel like this is the right time
And the city makes me feel alive
Track Name: Head On The Door
It's just a big
Misunderstanding, here
You got me wrong
And now it looks
So complicated

You know, it's not the first time
And sure it won't be the last time
We're giving it all away
Just to have a little fun

Why don't we talk about it
Or better fight about it
Maybe break some stuff
Just to feel all right

She said she loves me no more
She got my head on the door
She said she loves me no more, no, no
And then she walked out the door
She said she loves me no more
She got my face to the floor
She said she loves me no more, oh, oh
And then she walked out the door

Oh, little girl, please,
Stop pretending, here
You got me wrong
And now you make it sounds
So complicated
You know it's not the first time
And, sure, it won't be the last time
We're giving it all away
Just to have a little fun

Why don't we talk about it
Or better fight about it
Mess up this room
And then feel all right

[chorus]

Don't walk away
Please stay...

Why don't we talk about it
Or better fight about it
Maybe break some stuff
Than feel all right

[chorus]

This is no love song
You know, this is no love song
This is not a love song
It's just the best thing
I can do for you, right now.
Track Name: On The Screen
Hey!
Let the children play
I said hey,
Let them get away
We've been looking for you for so long
We've been watching you for too long
I said hey,
Let the children play

Get yourself on the screen
Get yourself up from the floor
Get up and walk out the door

We're in love with your blue-green eyes
And we'd like to see you smile
We're in love with your blue-green eyes

Get yourself on the screen
Get yourself on the screen

Get up from the floor
Walk out the door
And from what you felt before
Get yourself on the screen
Go on and scream
And let this world in between
Get yourself on the screen
Track Name: Honey Bunny Blues
They're all kickin'
On one dead dude
When they're tryin'
They try to break my groove
They're all dancing
They dance, dance, dance like fools

They're kickin'
On one dead dude
When they're tryin'
They try to break my move
They can't stop me
They can't stop me reachin' you

And my heart goes:
Don't stop, don't stop the honey-bunny blues

It's all over
I cannot make my move
I'm lying sober
On the dirty floor
And the clock is
Ticking tic-tac, tic-tac

And I'm shakin' like a leaf for you, honey
I'm shakin' like a leaf for you, honey
I'm shakin' like a tamburine, honey-bunny

'Cause my heart goes “boom”
Don't stop, don't stop the honey-bunny blues

It's all over
I cannot make my move
I'm lying sober
On the dirty floor
And the clock is
Ticking tic-tac, tic-tac

Yeah, your love feels just like glue
I can't stop thinkin' 'bout you
Your love feels just like glue, honey-bunny

And my heart goes:
Don't stop, don't stop the honey-bunny blues
Yeah, my heart goes “boom”
Don't stop, don't stop the honey-bunny blues

The honey-bunny blues is here to stay
The honey-bunny blues don't go away...
Track Name: Dependency
You are the picture I put on my hard-drive
That's been so ridiculously displayed
You are the one that we chased on the run

We’ve had too much time in the sun
It shined on rhythm dumb
We’ve had too much time in the sun
Now I'm the only one

That's my problem - when I'm free
I miss my dependency
It got me for long, long time in trouble

I understand the past, I understand the future's
The one that never lasts forever
And if you'd want to talk, then I would believe
This time we're in this together

We’ve had too much time in the sun
It shined on rhythm dumb
We’ve had too much time in the sun
Now I'm the only one

That's my problem - when I'm free
I miss my dependency
It got me for long, long time in trouble
That's my problem - when I'm free
I miss my dependency
Give me a little, make it double
Make it double for me
[chorus]

All that we are
Is right in front of your eyes
All that we want
Is right in front of us
Track Name: A Ride On Lovestreet
Let's take a ride, my friend
Let's have a ride
Just you and I - and I'll tell you why -
Step over the line
Let's talk about love and suicide
(oh, my!)

Put on your funny dress
And tell a joke to make me laugh
(oh, look at you, you're such a mess)
Or, better
Put on your magic hat
And make a spell to bring her back, just to bring
her back

I tell you:
She lives on Lovestreet and I know
Every time I took her home
I never said "I love you"
She lives on Lovestreet and I know
That this time I know I'm all alone
But then again...
You never ever say never

I tell you:
She lives on that street
Step on the gas
Let's get out of here, let's get out of here
Tie me up to seat
And drive away, 'cause I can't resist
You know I can't resist

I tell you:
She lives on Lovestreet and I know
That every time I took her home
I never said "I love you"
She lives on Lovestreet and I know
That this time I'm all alone
But then again...
You never ever say never
No, you never ever say never (you know, never to these things, no)...
She lives on Lovestreet
So drive on, my friend
Drive on, drive on,
Drive on and take me to her
She lives on Lovestreet...
Track Name: Kitchen Song
This is the kitchen song...
The place I hang on every morning
It’s where I drink my orange juice
And I will always speak the truth
(wait a minute)
What's that sound?
What hits the ground?
It's water drippin' down
From my kitchen sink
In rhythm dumb, and I cannot think
Straight
It's getting late
And I cannot think

This is the kitchen song, yeah
It's just the kitchen song
I'm hangin' on a kitchen love

This is the kitchen song...
The place I hang on every evening
It’s where I lay down my sleepy head
And I think about you

What's that sound?
What hits the ground?
Words are dripping down
On my kitchen's floor
They touch the ground
And I want more
They break apart
And I want more, more, more...

This is the kitchen song, yeah
Where all the girls belong, yeah
I'm hangin' on a kitchen love

This is the kitchen song, yeah
Where all the boys belong, yeah
I'm hangin' on a kitchen love

So, there I was - sitting in my kitchen,
and then I said to myself "what I'm gonna do?...
I think I'm gonna dance...dance to the kitchen
song"
Track Name: The Telephone
Here we stand in the sand
We're still playing silly games
Take my hand and understand
This is the end, she said

And I can't cry so I try
To look in the eyes of the passersby
For a trace of hope, for what it's worth
For peace of mind and as I walk away

I crash, and the pressure's on
I smash the telephone - it's the enemy
'Cause I know it can't bring you back to me
And I can't find no remedy
But I'm hanging on to this love
I'm still hangin' on

And the telephone doesn't ring and I think
You're the one not calling me
You're not here, I start to sink
Catch me cause I'm falling down

Here we stand hand in hand
With no feelings, no romance
And I'm a stone, I'm a broken bone
I see you in everyone

I crash, and the pressure's on
I smash the telephone - it's the enemy
'Cause I know it can't bring you back to me
And I can't find no remedy
But I'm hanging on to this love
I'm still hangin' on, hangin' on my love

This is the end, my precious friend
Take my hand, but understand, this is end
And I hate the telephone...
Track Name: Suburbia Afterlife
Like a high wind over trees
All the seabirds overseas
Touch the blue sky tenderly
Your gentle wing is drifting away
And angels forgot to sing

A trace of white fume in the sky
That is what you leave behind
And I follow you, but not that high
I'm getting closer all the time

And angels forgot to sing

Standing on the ashes of time
Maybe we need to find
Suburbia afterlife
Standing on the ashes of time
Give me just a little time
To find my peace of mind
Just a little peace of mind

You're the highway in my mind
And I'm driving all the time
Honey, you belong there in the sky
I am still right here, right now

Where angels forgot to sing

[chorus]
