Laura

Laura, the single that anticipated Square One was born in a warm summer night while the city lights were blinking out of my living room window and I was thinking about Love.

Love moves everything in this world and is the ultimate reason behind many of our decisions and choices.

So I thought if Laura loves me, she would not ask me to change, she would not ask me to be someone else and yet she would be there for me.

Love, for me, is first of all about freedom.

Well that’s my idea of love at least, hence the last verse:

Laura, I will find you one day

 

Enjoy this midsummer night’s dream.

 

 

I have been thinking about you

and how you make me feel good

with every little subtle movement of your eyes

you make me feel that everything is fine

I have been thinking about me

if I will ever really change, if I will finally be able to stop

to settle down and be a grown up

then you take my hands, look at me

with a playful smile upon your cheeks

I can’t deny you were right when you said with your cool style

go with the flow, just go with the flow

 

 

Laura, you just came to my life

but everything is bright

when you are by my side and

I can’t stop singing

Laura I wonder where you came from

you are like the sun after the storm

you shine if I am there or not

and I can’t stop singing

 

 

I have been sharing with you

my crazy points of view

so many people would have run away by now

but you are still here standing next to me

I am telling the truth

when I am saying to you

the day I ll finally be able to stop and settle down

it ‘s not far to come

then you take my hands look at me a playful smile upon your cheeks

don’t rush it now, you say to me, with your cool style and your irony,

go with flow, let’s go with flow

 

 

Laura, you just came to my life

but everything is bright

when you are by my side and

I can’t stop singing

Laura I wonder where you came from

you are like the sun after the storm

you shine if I am there or not

and I can’t stop singing

Laura is this what is like

to have you by my side

everything is bright so I can’t stop looking

for you, I will find you one day

 

Where have you gone

This song was written a while ago. I was back home in Italy and it was a warm night of September. It represents an imaginary dialogue with the young self of years ago: where that dreamy boy has gone ?

Life can harden you up with its difficulties and challenges so we often forget how to look at the sky with the amazed eyes of a kid.

There is something about you you might not wanna lose
It’s your way to see the beauty in a rainy day too

We should always keep alive the little kid in us, he would make us see the world with a different perspective, more joyous and playful.

The song itself was recorded a few times in different ways and arrangements, we could not find the right way to express its mood. So when we finally tried this, me and our producer Max Ciccarelli looked at each other and we said: “That’s it” !!

Enjoy!

 

Where have you gone, my friend

And what have you done over all these years

Where have you been? have you seen something great,

or have you been counting the stars above you?

 

Tell me the truth, did you expect to find me here

Talking to you and telling you I am for real

I am here to stay and walk you through the hallways in your mind

So dark and cold at times

 

There is something about you you might not wanna lose

It’s your way to see the beauty in a rainy day too

And don’t forget to take this song with you

and then sing it out loud when you are feeling blue

Tell me everytime you do, you’ll find me everywhere you look

 

It’s easy to see in your eyes

You looked for too long for signs

And then you have lost your faith in this world

Out of your mind and torn

 

Remember me running wild and free

Sharing my smile and my crazy dreams

Nothing is lost, I’ll walk you through the hallways in your mind

So dark and cold at times

 

There is something about you you might not wanna lose

It’s your way to see the beauty in a rainy day too

And don’t forget to take this song with you

and then sing it out loud when you are feeling blue

Tell me everytime you do, you’ll find me everywhere

 

There is something about you you might not wanna lose

It’s your way to see the beauty in a rainy day too

And don’t forget to take this song with you

and then sing it out loud when you are feeling blue

Tell me everytime you do, you’ll find me everywhere you look

Tell me every time you do, you’ll find me in your mirror too.

Recording . . Recording

It is always a long process when recording a new album but nevertheless rewarding in many ways.

REC STOP DELETE REWIND over and over again.

That is what we have been doing for the last few months in our studios of London, Ibiza and Rome.15875009_677037899122641_8284982507251004587_o

The Terrace Session!

The Terrace Session is out now!

One year ago we gather all our  friends  in our terrace just outside the main entrance of our house and we gave them a quick anticipation of our last EP “3 pm” that was at that time being recorded and that went out the last May.

Among others we also played an unreleased song called “Good and Bad”.

That day one of our friends, Emanuele Taglieri (http://www.emanueletaglieri.it/Sito/emanueletaglieri.html) shoot the show and…here we are one year after.

https://youtu.be/Hy8TTYr-PT0 

This is the tracklist:

  1. 3pm (3 pm)
  2. Good and Bad (unreleased)
  3. My World (3 pm)
  4. Cold White Pieces (Canvas #1)
  5. You & Me  (Canvas #1)
  6. I Want You (Canvas #1)

Just next to the title you can find the EP which contains the song.


We would like to thank all people that made that day so special!

 

 

NEW VIDEO for our latest single TONIGHT!

Hiya Colourshoppers! Finally we have the new video for our latest single “Tonight“.

It has been filmed the last April between Southbank and Soho, in London by our friend Antonio Pilade .

It was a great experience to work with Antonio and we had much fun testing our actors skills !

The only downside has been a road sign in the wrong place at the wrong time . .Alfredo hit it hard with his head while walking backwards during the filming – he should be fine ahahah !

A special thanks to Luciano Spitalerihe has helped us working on the post-production giving the video a nice grading.

We would also like to thank Samuele and Susana Silva as they appear as special guests in the video!

 

Here it is! Hope you like it.

 

 

New video and live at The Troubadour!

Hello colourshoppers! We are working hard to finalize our next EP and we promise you will see it very very soon.

The past few days we have been very busy gigging and shooting the new videoclip for our next single which will be…okay now it is time to say it: our next single will be “Tonight”.

We also have an upcoming gig which is worth mentioning. This Thursday we are headlining at The Troubadour, one of the last remaining coffee houses of its era in London, with a club room in the cellar famous as one of the primary venues of the British folk revival in the late 1950s and 1960s.

For more info on the gig click here.

Here are a couple of shoots from our new video.
