Dann 'the djentle giant' Wow! How is it possible that this band is not yet known as the greatest alternative band of the time? It sounds like Placebo, but with a remarkable energy and audacity. This is solid gold... Sahara Surfers is a stoner/alternative must. Take a minute to listen to the song '8.12' and you'll take more than a single minute to listen to the rest of the album Favorite track: 8.12.

Harry Harrison Feel in love with this stuff when I got my hands on a shitty copy back when it all started in 2010. Now I can get a decent copy and throw a little coin at the makers of these great tunes. These guys are more than worth the cost. Colour Jam is one of my all-time favourite grooves. Favorite track: Colour Jam.

about

Sahara Surfers Innsbruck, Austria

Sahara Surfers have been bringing rock from the desert to the Tyrolean alps. Their debut album very quickly earned them recognition on the stoner rock scene. The skillful combination of psychedelic hooks and driving riffs typical to the genre, accented by the not so genre-typical female singer, immediately struck a nerve in the scene and has landed on open ears both in Austria and abroad. ... more

Track Name: Colour Jam
It came with the light
silent and easy
passing by
It came with the light
not even recognized
loading up my energy

Just a word unspoken and weary
you should know oh well you should know

It's just a glimpse in time
This present is mine
Track Name: Propeller
Cut down the mask
Hide it there
I'm tired of thinking

Let them betray you
Behind the scenes
They throw you up and down
and up and down again
You still wonder why
Sit down and cry
Today your whole world will die

You couldn't name it
it's shame
again, again, again

It's a fact that you are small
I can't be there waiting

Let them betray you
Behind the scenes
They throw you up and down
and up and down again
You still wonder why
Sit down and cry
Today your whole world will die
Track Name: Age
I walk the line 'till the end
it feels right though it never came
I'm walking fast, close my eyes
compense my dreams to a blink in one life
As we grow time flys
you try to hold it but it slips aside

The vision of what I need every day
increases with the mind of those who stayed
Illuminates the the so meant darkened days
to soften the pain it causes on the way

The things we bear are like wooden swords
they can kill a man but they burn swell

The vision of what I need every day
increases with the mind of those who stayed
Illuminates the the so meant darkened days
to soften the pain it causes on the way

So silent, oh so silent, oh
We're fading away, give ground

We lost our minds to a twisted life
seeking the truth but are stuck in lies
we wait for the world to change our sight
spineless and numb to save another...

Vision of what I need every day
increases with the mind of those who stayed
Illuminates the the so meant darkened days
to soften the pain it causes on the way
Track Name: 8.12
Head high to feel alive
Head high to recognize
We'll leave you there all alone
See you there tonight

Failed on a thing called sympathy
We miss everything that we thought was right

Kill time like a hobo tries
Kill dreams for a leap of faith
'Cause we'll get it all along
Keep it all inside
It's an endless fight

Have faith until you break
Faith once you've known
Well ride on, I said well ride on

Failed on a thing called sympathy
We missed everything that we thought was right
Track Name: Sister in Shade
The wind is rough, so am I
I tried to believe what you said to my
sister in shade, hidden deep
deep down and my soul's for keeping

It means I like, sure I don't
face to face with a monster
and I raised it all alone
now I'm calm, looking to what I've done
I want to believe that it helps me

I came to realize, always passing by, came to realize

The sister's waiting in the dark
It makes me kneel, but it get's me up swell
playing hide and seek
unable to breathe unable to speak
It's a one man show
Seems like everybody knows

I came to realize, always passing by, came to realize
For the songs I write, for the things I hide, came to realize

The same, again the same

See-through blind eyes
I need peace, paralyzed,
greed, I'm torn, away,
I like, no, no, no

I came to realize, always passing by, came to realize
For the songs I write, for the things I hide, came to realize

For the things in the world that mean something
I want you to understand that I came to realize.
