about

Spiral Rzeszow, Poland

Spiral is usually defined by its listeners as a rock/post-rockish band, but their compositions are much harder to define. Their music is a fusion of genres such as post rock, dream pop, trip hop and sometimes prog metal. All that is topped with dreamy female vocals. The group has 3 long play releases on their account: Bullets (2016) Cloud Kingdoms (2014) and Urban Fable (2009). ... more

Track Name: Golden Afternoon
i remember you saying: let's run away, let’s run away from here
there has to be a better place
where cats are bigger than clouds and where they live forever, forever.
let's find it and settle there.

cats' graveyard
is a place you liked to take me to
we could stare for hours
how furry souls rose to the heaven
from between snow-white giant bones
sandwiches, penknife and treasure box

i remember you saying: let's run away, let’s run away from here
there has to be a better place
where cats are bigger than clouds and where they live forever, forever.
let's find it and settle there.

let's find it and settle there.
Track Name: Black Dwarf
by a copper thread we all, we all
vanish from here, vanish from now
we become monochrome skies
that carpet the horizon
by a copper thread we all, we all
vanish from here

yesterday we shone like
a constellation of supernovae
for the one last night
we, the wisest of all jesters
burned bright and burned out, burned out

our kingdoms once pure, once powerful
lay in ruin, lay in ruin
by a copper thread we all, we all
vanish from here

yesterday we shone like
a constellation of supernovae
for the one last night
we, the wisest of all jesters
burned bright and burned out, burned out

it's true we've been brothers
it's true we've been pure
it's true we've poisoned each other
and we can't find a cure
we hide from the bright one
from now on we do
past glory slipped away once more
like a thousand years ago

yesterday we shone like
a constellation of supernovae
for the one last night
we, the wisest of all jesters
burned bright and burned out, burned out
Track Name: Cloud Kingdoms
how do you think?
what do sleeping giants dream about?
and if we wake them up,
will they be pleased with it?

with bodies made of light
and capes made of nebulae
the great ones sometimes grow tired
of their celestial existence.

there is no known force
that can lift the giants' heavy lids.
all we can do is wait
for them to reappear,
to rearrange.

with bodies made of light
and capes made of nebulae
the great ones sometimes grow tired
of their celestial existence.
Track Name: Malleus Maleficarum
i am,
storm’s daughter
tender mother
devil’s lover,

i have cured leg of a hunter
ripped apart apart by wolves
i have pulled a child from under the ice

you can't fix me!

how one can be so blind
to tear day apart from a night
and pretend it has never existed?
you lose every time you pick a side
black and white -
are always mixed
they can not be apart

every child knows
you kill angels
the same way you kill dragons
Track Name: Chasing Tails
All the shapes and
All the shades
All the time
All day
Tell me something is going to change

Too long for me
Too long
Too long in this passenger seat

All the shapes and
All the shades
All the time
All day
Tell me something is going to change
All the shapes and
All the shades
Crossing by, chasing their own tails
Tell me good is on its way

between the lines
caught by the riddle
I’m scanning this picture through my fingers
so wide-awake,
no breaks!
no calling off this boiling water
there’s a fire,
under this copper!

As a model believer
I’ll crawl
through this path,
that I don’t know
the hell with all the do’s and don’ts

This train is fast
Before you know
It’s out of sight
Long gone!
Track Name: Sweet and Sour
yeah yeah
till we rust
till the colors fade
young and restless hearts
keep drawing us
toward sleepless heavy nights
till we rust
till the colors fade
we swear out loud
we love to death


+ you know what?
the biggest wonder
of my life
is how the species of mankind
can be so messed up in every possible way
++ gosh, just give me a brake,
i would have told you
but i knew that this was gonna happen
all this time
i've been waiting
for you to say
'i told you so'
you told me so
for once in your life
don't be so predictable


yeah yeah
till we rust
till the colors fade
young and restless hearts
keep drawing us
toward sleepless heavy nights
till we rust
till the colors fade
we swear out loud
we love to death


+tell me
why am i
wasting my time
dealing with all your mess
if we always end up like this
++you're right
i fucked up
this time
+not the first
++not the last!
(that's) the only thing
i can trust
sooner or later
it’s going to happen

yeah…
till we rust!
i’ll be the patch on your knee
i’ll be the song you need to hear
i’ll run into the lions cage
i’ll be there till your colors fade
Track Name: Eris
Although I’m hiding
It seems she has already found me
Sneaked in so softly
With an ice-knife she stabbed me
A shard stuck in the wound
and froze all life that left inside

So leave it as it is
Don’t try to find the answer
The criminal got away
And the evidence has melted.

Further away from the sun
Than in any other time of the year (that’s where I am)
Don’t you try to track me – it’s no use
I’ve lost my color and scent (cracked skin, chapped lips)
None of my shallow footprints can lead you here 

So leave it as it is
Don’t try to find the answer
The criminal got away
And the evidence has melted.
Track Name: Raw
With no guilt
With no shame
All trembling floors
are waiting to be conquered

You know
that’s the way it has to be
Not just one, but whole tree
We’re gonna taste this night

Lost in this fire/fire/fire
One burn for each desire

With no guilt
Without shame
All the colors of mine
are changing into red

let us be as one
let’s get wet

please pour it out/ pour it out/pour it out
please pour the RED

You know
that’s the way it has to be
Not just one, but whole tree
We’re gonna taste this night

Lost in this fire/fire/fire
One burn for each desire

The holiest of altars
Calling for the feast
Like in 1969, like a rocket,
like a child just reach
Reach/ reach/ reach for unreachable
With no hesitation, no fear
The holiest of altars
Calling you for the feast
The holiest/ the holiest /the holiest/ the ….
The holiest of altars is calling

I’ll drink all this water
and climb all your walls
I’ll shout out to father
“I put my dibs
on the second floor,
love the wind
love the storm”

While breathing the void
(I’m) blown by this call
I’m not out of my mind
I’m out of my soul
Track Name: Knives and Affection
A tiny little mark is getting
smaller every day.
It will vanish soon and leave a scab,
like every of its kind, every of its kind.

Push, pinch, lash
grind, pull, bash
cut, stab, smash 
I feel like more.
Some people notice the look on my face.
Some people ask who is it.
and i'm unlikely to reveal.
Like the truth under my sleeves.

Every one of them I greet warmly.
As my blood is warm too.
Every one of them I greet with pleasure.
The opposites are likely to attract
each other, I suppose.

A needle tears through flesh
like a cupid's arrow pierces a heart.
A needle tears through flesh
it makes me shut up and smile.
And it tastes like sunshine.

Push, pinch, lash
grind, pull, bash
cut, stab, smash 
I feel like more.
Some people notice the look on my face.
Some people ask who is it.
and I’m unlikely to reveal.
Like the truth under my sleeves.
Track Name: Maybe We Could Become Giants
Or maybe we could become giants
Fall asleep and dream of becoming the light.
