about

Y llegó la hora en que el hacha pequeña empieza a talar el árbol grande, amigos. ¿Podemos o no podemos? Si Pablo Iglesias fuese un verdadero revolucionario, en lugar de cerrar los mítines con viejas canciones de Lluís Llach debería poner a todo volumen el nuevo disco de Sanjays: “Food and milk for our babies” .

En realidad, a la banda le apetecía seguir de fiesta, pero llegó la hora de luchar. Como en los duros años que siguieron al crack del 29, como los mineros en la Britania de Thatcher. Como tras la estafa neoliberal que estamos sufriendo ahora mismo. Este es el disco guerrillero de Sanjays, igual de trepidante que siempre, sí, pero esta vez invita a ponerse de pie no solo para bailar. Siguiendo la estela de bandas como los Housemartins o los Smiths, Sanjays abrazan el mensaje político sin desdeñar la magia de un single pegadizo.

Porque con su tercer disco, Sanjays han logrado una poderosa definición en su sonido, que se mira sin contemplaciones en el espejo de la escena pop internacional. En un viaje de ida y vuelta apabullante desde el pop bailable de nuestros días hasta la new wave de los primeros 80, el indie de los 90 o incluso los ecos de guitarras de los 60, Sanjays consiguen sublimar múltiples referentes (de LCD Soundsystem a Pavement, de !!! a The B-52's, de Los Campesinos a MGMT) para llevarlos a su propio terreno y obtener un sonido fresco, pegadizo y con personalidad, donde los sintetizadores y guitarras juegan con una sección rítmica llena de groove, sobre los que se asientan los juegos de voces masculinas y femeninas, marca de la casa. El resultado es un arrebatado compendio de instantáneas sónicas, dispuestas a incendiar festivales, clubs y salas de conciertos.

“Food and milk for our babies” se abre ya con una declaración de principios (“In war against power”) para más tarde abrazar otras denuncias de distinta índole social (“Cardenalis intraanalis”, el título no deja lugar a dudas). Aunque es en el primer single “Race for peace” dónde mensaje y hitazo llegan a la máxima simbiosis. El disco esconde también temazos de pop urgente (“The last summer”, “Lessons” o las imparables "Fenilefrine" y "God does not exist") al lado de medios tiempos igualmente adictivos (sensuales en “Save your game”, hipnóticos en “Keep warning”). En definitiva, un trabajo poderoso y maduro de una banda que se encuentra en su mejor momento.

Track Name: In war against power
have you thought 'bout giving up love?
'cause its all under control

they've been crafting their rules its a game,
designed for us to loose

we're being chased by banks its the law
in what world did we agree?

Power is pushing us passed the line
the line's name is dignity

keep fighting this lie! Don't you bow!

i want your chins up now its not lost
violence is what they choose
have you thought they may think we're asleep
well, we're not, we don't forgive

keep fighting this lie! Don't you bow!

final: (repeat) have you thought 'bout giving up now?
Its not worth! its not worth! its not worth! its not worth! We'll fight go!

Have you thought 'bout giving up now?
Its not worth! its not worth! its not worth! its not worth! We'll fight go!
Track Name: Race for peace
Chase them, face them, no fear, now hear what’s the sound of bullets
better fight BANKS, no more TANKS, blood no money
they've got the power to infect our souls victory shall be now.
Hours left till the fall of humanity, lets dignify not classify
no more spies or lies gotta fight them all with no control
eternal submission that's the way, their vision, better think before bowing... now

Baby what you wanna do tonight?
We don’t have another day of pride.
Do you want a shotgun or do you want truth,
You’re just another bullet losing your youth.

wreckless, useless, confuse us...
control us (x4)
some war, designed 'cause today its done their way
we've tried to face it, but we're not enough in this race for peace,

we should now resist, come, lets fight them… go!

Baby what you wanna do tonight?
We don’t have another day of pride.
Do you want a shotgun or do you want truth,
You’re just another bullet losing your youth.

Aha, keep it up, mmm
Chase them and face them,
no fear now, just ace ‘em.
If you think that you can do it,
all I know is they will fall
What you don’t know is that power is power,
but all our desire’s what’s got us in control.
‘Cause they are the blind ones,
and we’re who can see.
They will just die,
trying to fight not succeed.

Baby what you wanna do tonight?
We don’t have another day of pride.
Do you want a shotgun or do you want truth,
You’re just another bullet losing your youth.
Track Name: The last summer
Helps not to see what's coming at us
its coward to think we're still lovers
everytime this place reminds me that you won't be here anymore

Was your call to sign this departure
clearly not worried 'bout our story
will be here... till you go away from me.
Since you're gone we're both playing liars
still share the sea but you won't come by
you may regret not staying with my eyes.

I said let go,
We’re holding on to stories that we’ve read before.
I said let go, whoa whoa.
Won’t you let go?
We’ve already expected what’s about to come,
but hey… won’t you stay… the night?
Even if we're far i still love you

you've been my all and you will be Marion
i'm not giving up, your my muse
well, you're my love.
Some stories never surrender
this is our case its been a few years now
you make my life a place to enjoy...
I said let go,
We’re holding on to stories that we’ve read before.
I said let go, whoa whoa.
Won’t you let go?
We’ve already expected what’s about to come,
but hey… won’t you stay… the night?
Track Name: Cardenalis intraanalis
Access the future, we're not sold anymore!
(we are not sold no more)
And now we ask them: “quit your greed, once for all”!
(quit your greed right now)

Well they're not quitting don't you know
Swear i will kill them, let me go
Fed up feeding popes... you should know!

jesus knows what we're on (and its clearly not on faith)
coke is here to kill devotes (this is religion now)
you don't know when you don't find the shinny light of the tunnel
you won't fight alone.
Track Name: Keep warning
There’s a little kind of story going on in my head,
a loop of naked pictures of you sleeping in my bed.
You may think I’m going crazy since it’s been too long,
You were the only one, baby, who could do me wrong,
right, wrong, wrong.

Keep warning,
‘cause I can’t see the signs.
Keep warning,
Will you stay tonight?
Keep warning,
‘cause I am losing it.
Lie to me, honey.
Lie to me, honey, tonight.

Don’t want to be alone
Keep warning
But it feels so right
Keep warning
Don’t want to be alone
Track Name: Save your game
I got a feeling that you’ll take me to wherever you want
I got a feeling that you’ll take me to wherever you want
I can’t keep dealing with no notice of a breaking point
I got a feeling you can take me whenever that you want

But will you remember?
Will you remember?

I got a feeling that you’ll take me to wherever you want
I got a feeling that you’ll take me to wherever you want

I’m done with all the pressure oh you’refeeding me right,
I’m not an expectation you can change through the night,
If you got something to say, you better put up a fight
‘cause I’m not you
and I’m not you.

Save your game,
tonight, tonight

Baby take all your clothes off,
If you don’t know that I’m yours.
Then you can take all of your shit,
If you don’t know that I’m yours.

‘Cause I can be a failure, baby,
but I don’t need savin’.
Test me, baby.
Then you’ll know that I, you’ll know that I…

I’m done with all th epressure oh you’refeeding me right,
I’m not an expectation you can change through the night,
If you got something to say, you better put up a fight
‘cause I’m not you
and I’m not you.

Save your game,
tonight, tonight
Track Name: Lessons
This whole Desire out of a son
He’s paying years of troubled lessons

This whole Desire out of a son
He’s paying years of troubled lessons

Well now, both of his parents!
They don’t wanna talk
Course he needs to give all his love!

Well now both of his parents
They’re out of control
now he needs to give all his love!

A corpse burns slowly
When life hasn’t been a place to enjoy..

Girl it all runs slowly
When life hasn’t been a place to enjoy….

This whole Desire out of a son
He’s paying years of troubled lessons

Now all of his problems out of a son
He’s paying years of troubled lessons!

Well now, both of his parents!
They don’t wanna talk
Course he needs to give all his love!

And now, both of his parents!
They don’t wanna talk
Now he needs to give all his love!

A corpse burns slowly
When life hasn’t been a place to enjoy..

Girl it all runs slowly
When life hasn’t been a place to enjoy….

We run from death but it’s catching us…
keeps catching us
Track Name: Fenilefrine
When did you end it felt like jaws
I’m integrated, i’m in so….
(you will never come back, not tomorrow)
Heart means nothing to them all,
I’m just a number, they thought that
(you will never come back, not tomorrow)

You won
It’s been a sad one
Oh hard not to fake one (i’ll never!)
(you will never come back, not tomorrow)
New born, you’ll never get one
unless you steal some
you wanted
(you will never come back, not tomorrow)

“you’ll never crawl..”
Let’s crawl for tomorrow
you’ve never cried
i’ll leave you tonight
and it’s leather if that’s what you want

Clue how we ended up like this?
This is a slaughter…
We kill each other for some food,
We should have stopped it,
we should have stopped while we could (and)

You won
Its been a sad one
Oh Hard not to fake one (i’ll never!!!)
New born, you’ll never get one
unless we want one
you wanted

“you’ll never crawl..”
Let’s crawl for tomorrow
you’ve never cried
i’ll leave you tonight
and it’s leather if that’s what you want

You wanted leather, never forget
you want a leather body
X! X! X! X!
Track Name: God does not exist
About to choke,
Well take it a bit easier
Trouble aligns, problems come all together
You better pay,
You better play their games or
Pray !pray ! pray ! ..
I wanna know why is it so hard now
I better know if its like this for everyone!
There’s not a light, nothing that guides me
OUT OUT OUUUUT

(Don’t you bow, not this time no!)

The world’s
about,
To crack,
Its not.. FAR AWAY
Someone
Should stop,
The feet
Of this,
Human beings!
I know
They think
Its fun
To kill
All our dreams!
Golet’s chase them until they’ve been punished!

Is jesus in the sky?
You wanted love but itson
Moses in the sky?
He’ll open nothing but your wound
Track Name: Strange root again
Strange root, nowhere in the place
strange fruit, once she sang
that was when I grew up
my father used to show me how

make it, do it , mistakes may happen
so make this happen to me
don’t know if that juice is mine
you’ve seen this before… yeah!

June arrived and take a dive in my life
leave your bath of leaves , come on
remember the place to fight
it’s not what you’re used to
he’s not even there for us

He is never there for us

June just comes, hair she combs
while I watch her, while I stare
June is here to go away,
you’ll see this is worth nothing

grass higher, stop, watch
make love here lets lie to each other
June is not here to stay so
be aware, leaves may appear.

June arrived and take a dive
take a dive in my life
leave your bath of leaves, come on
remember the place to fight
it’s not what you’re used to
he’s not even there for us

He is never there for us
