about

WANWEIRD London, UK

Wanweird is an old gaelic word meaning "misfortune; ill or unhappy fate." It is also a weird one-woman-band who makes weird music.

She plays guitar, bass, drums and sings; writing and recording weird sludgy rock. She mixes all the music herself as well, and most songs are accompanied by an arty montage of old video clips (see for yourself: www.youtube.com/channel/UCR2zxNejQMkDVxWSfrtMGAA)

Track Name: I Was Surprised
Verse 1:

You smell like leather and stale cigarettes
Poised yeah, confidence from your every pore sweats
You look so damn cool in your black clothes and shades
I think you're an artistic kind of depraved

Chorus:

I was surprised
You blew my mind
I was surprised
That you blew my mind
I see now I'm blind
Wanna know you tonight

Verse 2:

Let's drive around town, vandalise and sniff glue
And fall in love and maybe get a tattoo
We could watch Pulp Fiction and then have a fight
But we'd make up some time later and write songs all night

(Chorus)

Middle:

Let's get high and make love until the sun comes up
Lets get high and make love until (x2)
Track Name: Four Below
Verse 1:

No one ever calls these days
They wouldn't get through anyway
I must living in an old snow globe
On my own it's always four below

Chorus:

Turn on the TV, what a really dumb show
Gimmic-stale they must be four below
My room is shaking and it's starting to snow
But it's not winter, it's just four below

Four below (x4)

Verse 2:

Go to work and slave your soul away
You're only worth whatever you get paid
I can't be bothered to fall in love
'Cause it's too easy to dispose of

(Chorus)

Middle:

A toast based dinner for one
My skin'd melt like wax in the sun
Under me lonely bed springs creak
I'm a book loving, cold, sexless freak

(Chorus)

Verse 3/End:

The exhaustion process is complete
It never ends fully, it just repeats
I was born so many years too late
I am at odds with everyone I can't relate
Track Name: Loser
Verse 1:

A true member of, the Lonely Hearts Club Band
Not the biggest crowd, but we are the right one although we're of the left hand
I must have overslept on the day society handed out its invites
So I joined his club, let me tell you can never leave it with your life

Pre-Chorus:

And if you met me, I'm sure that you would hate me
But I wouldn't like you even if you paid me!

They say "hey girl, you're going nowhere in this world" but...

Chorus:

I don't care, I don't care
'Cause I'm just a loser
With no future

Verse 2:

I'm really happy and also really sad
An unhappiness which unfortunately is not just a phase or fad
Why's what I can't have so maddeningly desirable?
Oh I hate you all, that's the only thing about me that's reliable

(Pre-Chorus)

(Chorus)

-SOLO-

(Chorus)

End:

No future, no future
With no future, no future.
Track Name: Pluto
Verse 1:

I want a boy who paints and sings
And when I get high doesn't judge my sins
I wan't a boy who is as weird as me
And has an innate hatred for society
I wan't a boy who's smart and profane
And when I throw a tantrum doesn't run away
I wan't a boy who, when I act aloof and cold, doesn't give up - even more pursues.

Chorus:

Hi I'm Pluto, welcome to my underworld
Face your darkness, you'll have to when in me it unfurls (x2)

Verse 2:

I want a boy who's dark and arcane
And turns me on most with his mysterious brain
I wan't a boy who listens to my words
And always hears what I don't intend to be heard
I want a boy who doesn't mind taboos
'Cause I am one myself and so he must be too
I want a boy who stimulates my mind
And isn't afraid of what there he might find

(Chorus)

Middle:

I like serial killers, absinthe and cats
My clothes never match
I'm scruffy with ruffled hair and only have one pair of shoes
I look funny in the nude

- SOLO -

(Chorus)

End:

I want a boy who's as strong as I am
Who's not a boy really but is truly a man.
Track Name: Wings of Icarus
Chorus:

When it is said then when it is done
I'm Icarus too close to the sun
When I'm forgetting I remember your name
But though my wings are melting I know I am to blame

Verse 1:

Youth is like an ageing autumn tree
All our cares are like the falling autumn leaves
All my angels seem to paint in grey
The horoscope said that I'd probably die today
The winter for the spring shall play a dirge
The sun shall see, feel sick and make itself purge
They plant their seeds then think the fruit is odd
Oh but this is youth without god

(Chorus)

Verse 2:

Love reminds me of the Morning Star
Fall because we are less than what we think we are
An orchid amongst dandelions and weeds
Glad I've met someone who's less words and more deeds
I want to die but not be dead forever
Wake at 30 and things'll be much better
To the loss of innocence I can't adjust
Love on the wings of Icarus

(Chorus)

End:

There's nothing here but you and I
The doves form heart shapes in the sky
No sad smiles and there's no lies
Everything is beautiful before it dies

I met god in the clouds, he said there was a place without the crowds
Where the quiet is not too loud
Where I'll forget how to be proud

Life goes on
It really goes on
Life goes wrong
It really goes wrong

Life?
Life
Life?
Oh life
Life
Life
Life.
