12:9 FABRICA HIELO

LA FÁBRICA DE HIELO + SAMUEL REINA

La vie est belle cuando estrenas temporada en un lugar como La Fábrica de Hielo, frente al mar. Y pronto ves, atónita, cómo se llena por completo. No se me olvida agradecer momentos como los del pasado sábado: Por escuchar, por la acogida, por volver a cantar con Samuel Reina, y a Le Cool Valencia por la producción.

Love!

MY NAME IS JUNE.

‘Brave Journey Into The English Sea. Forever clean, underneath my skin.

Brave Journey Into The English Sea. Miss it, everything’

The music of June’s Kaleidoscope can be conceived like the nostalgic, yet stirring trip you’d begin over and over again, through endless ocean landscapes stuck in your memory. The musical alter ego of the songwriter and pianist Arantxa Iranzo, the voice behind June, was born in allusion to Lucy, ‘the girl with kaleidoscope eyes': in honor of one of her favorite childhood’s Beatles songs. Spanish born, and greatly influenced by a classical piano education, Arantxa left her cloudless hometown, Valencia, and moved to London a few years ago, where she finished her debut album (Soon You Will See, 2012) in the solitude of her University room.

Her project made her finalist at London’s Hard Rock CafeThe Rising of Bands Competition, amongst thousands of participants: a point in which her career started to move on smoothly, being soon discovered by BBC London Radio.

After spending a while gigging, traveling, and eventually broadening her songwriting at New York University, Arantxa came back to her old piano room, where she started to write the forthcoming Brave Journey Into The English Sea: and ode to her life in England, a diary full of Atlantic stories wrapped in a love that was not meant to be. The album was recorded and co-produced under the guidance of Matt Ingram (Laura Marling, Lianne La Havas, The Staves) at Urchin Studios in London; counting also on the great collaboration of Fyfe Dangerfield (The Guillemots) on the songs.

After the premiere of her new music video Best Hotel Room We’ve Ever Had last July, June performed as the supporting act of one her biggest music influences, Jamie Cullum, at Conciertos de Viveros in Valencia (Spain): Undoubtedly, a career-defining and really special moment for her music trajectory.

Brave Journey Into The English Sea will be released at the end of this summer 2017.

Lighthouse

I burst out laughing
when I recall
all of those summers
when we grew up
Sat on a buggy
under the Sun
going around an island

We were six, seven,
eight, nine or ten
someone new coming
we didn’t care
Like a flock of seagulls…
on a lighthouse

Felt that opera of sirens
knocking at my door
Child eyes filled with feelings
I was so wrong, yes

I was so wrong,
the summer’s gone
We sang at night,
and we are all grown
This time, this time
forever.

So,
Come, dive into the clouds
find the days of our family
This water here, the sounds, the sea
It feels like home
The sounds, the sea
A lighthouse, a Lifetime

Still there’s that sunset
But the sea breeze now changed its direction
and turns into sweet, sweet tears

It’s time for us to come here again
I see the lights calling from that cliff at night
Used to be, used to be
Our lighthouse

Lighthouse

We wrote our names on our favorite shore
But the tide erased a
past that’s torn

But it’s alright
It’s alright
It’s alright
It’s alright
It’s okay
It’s okay

Ms Honey

Ms Honey, shut the door
already tried to advise you
that all the things that you ignore
maybe are your life

Fall is comin’, now you know
what’s better, you decide
between living on your own
or going for a ride

Ms Honey, now listen
this is not a home
Ms Honey, please don’t miss it
You seem older,
but you are not…

Sitting here,
now at the table
in your cold and empty place
you want something
but you are not able
to stand up and ask for it

The moon is rising up tonight,
so soon
and lights part of the sky
it’s true, as if it were the Sun
but it would never be alike

Be alike….

Miss Honey, don’t loose it
we’re still playing on,
still playing on
Miss Honey, hear, you’re different
so you better
come along
….
Du ru da da da da,
da da da …

Miss Honey, won’t you listen to me?
but you won’t be, alone
anymore,
I swear you won’t

Miss Honey,
won’t you listen to me?

Miss Honey, she?
Miss Honey, who?
Miss Honey,
please say something
Miss Honey, speak
Miss Honey, shout
Miss Honey, start loving!

Miss Honey, she?
Miss Honey, who?
Miss Honey,
I’m not joking

Miss Honey, hear
Miss Honey, shout
Miss Honey,
you’ll be sorry

The Nepal
Tree

SONG COMPOSED FOR THE CHARITY ALBUM THE NEPAL TREE, BY THE CHOIR OF THE ORPHANED CHILDREN OF KATHMANDU (SPONSORED BY UNESCO) 2012.

In the murmur of the wind
feathers fly tonight
all those whispers
that pray in the dead of night

And lying in bed,
singing you the tale
take a look outside
the sun will rise again

Children playing
around the Nepal Tree
hanging on its branches
take a look and see

Hymns and hopes
and dreams and words
I’ll hear them all from here
Ancient stories,
youth and joy
around the Nepal Tree

Children laughing
around the Nepal Tree
all their voices
will always stay within me

Love
Love
Love

Long Ago

Long ago
I decided
to be one
like some kind of stupid crank

Never felt like
being courageous
I really think
I deserve a quick gunshot

“How dare ya, – you said,
my sweet darling?
How could you choose
to be always all alone?”

I know, I know
I’m so cynic
those dark glasses
never made me look so pretty

…And now,
I’m stuck again
hopefully, there’ll be
another chance.

Long ago,
we decided
to be two
but I spoilt it all with you

And to be blunt,
I didn’t know
how to be binary

But I do love you
and I swear all that it’s true

I know, I know
I’m so cynic
those dark glasses
never made me look so pretty

And now
I’m stuck
… again.

Odds and
Ends

It’s not what I expect
Muck on the ground
I feel much the same
Needles
and hate

Get away, first fall
But believe in the stars
Need to feel the thunder
Beating my neck
And write, sing everyday
To calm down
Brilliant or brittle like the sound

Under a rainy house
-a rainy house-
there’s my baby child
and cobwebs in my room
there’s nothing here to call ‘joy’
I forgot the song

Get away, and believe in the stars
Need to feel that thunder
beating my neck
And write, sing everyday
To calm down
Brilliant or brittle like the sound

Love the things you do,
do the things you love

Beatles Songs

It’s May, again
I heard that Jude finally made it better
He kissed Michelle
And stayed on those fields forever

As the lilies grow
Lucy has done it so
there’s still that Sun in her eyes
more than ever, diamonds fill her skies

So,
Love me, love me do
You know I love you
you know I do, so
sing me Beatles songs
while we are on our way home
Spring is my favourite time
So please don’t say goodbye, now
Cause Mr. Kite and I
will do a show tonight
and you could come with me again
So…

Love me, love me do
you know I love you
you know I do, so
Sing me Beatles Songs
while we are on our way home

We are going home
We are going home
We are going home
We are going home

Send some letters,
‘Dear Prudence’
let’s wear raincoats in the Sun
Sing me
Beatles, Beatles songs
On our way home
Honey pie, in my life
I’ll love you , I’ll love you
More
And more, and more ,
and more, and more,
and more, and more
And more, and more
and more,
and more.
