A delightful Croatian band : nipplepeople

By Will Oliver, February 23rd 2010 — with 7 comments Band To Watch MP3

I got many promo emails that just bore me. Most of the stuff I get bores me. I got a “Walking On A Dream” remix yesterday morning and though to myself, great, another “Walking On A Dream” remix. I really didn’t want to bother, but I try to give everything at least a few minutes of listening time. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed the remix done by a mysterious band from Croatia called nipplepeople.

I emailed them back asking about them, and they were very shy about sharing their own original songs because the songs are in Croatian. They assumed it wouldn’t be interesting to American audiences. Well most close minded people would probably completely disregard the band right there. I however sensed something special about these guys. I went to their myspace and gave the 2 songs on their a listen. The songs are titled “Sutra” and “Broj”. I was completely blown away with how delightful “Sutra” was. There is nothing better than being caught completely off guard to find a treasure. That is exactly what happened yesterday when nipplepeople emailed me.

4 minutes of blissful electronic/dance music that is breathtakingly fresh. Sure you may not understand what they are saying but it doesn’t blur their ability to craft a beautiful melody through ethereal vocals and clean beats. There is just a really warm airy nature to her vocals that I can’t get enough of. The first 50 seconds of the song are pretty unbelievable. This is electronic music done right! “Broj” is not far behind it. It is a more restrained song, but still maintains a high level of quality. These guys are not amatuers to the game by any means, they sound like they have been doing this for years.

This may be one of the coolest finds of 2010, I am completely eating nipplepeople up!

Check out their myspace. They also have a blog which they say is more English friendly! Songs are posted for download below:

    You said you don’t understand a thing because it’s croatian, and you just like the tune. It’s interesting because my friends and i thought it was a nice song until we found the lyrics on the internet – then we really fell in love with this song. So here it is, my english is not perfect, and it’s always difficult to translate songs, especially if it’s like poetry – and this is pretty close, beautiful. I’m just sorry you’re not a native speaker – my translation isn’t even closely beautiful as the song in croatian. I hope someone would do a better job – until then, just so you understand what she’s singing about – first the croatian version, and then my translation. Its just for you, please dont use my email or name in public. Its not my song. 🙂

    Nipplepeople SUTRA Druge ruke namaju tvoj dar I mada sve sto mi pricas dobro znam Tapkam u maraku, u tmini Sve je drugo u tisini Moje ime najbolje svira tvoj glas Druge trazim I ti trazis druge Nadam se, nadam se Dok nam samo krivi se nude Na kraju dana sam ovdje Ti tamo si sam Bjeze nam vrijeme I ljudi Znam da znas Nazovi da me diras bas Kad tamo ne briljiras bas Nikakva carobna jutra Zaljubit cu se sutra Druge usne druge su price Ljubis me, ljubis me Da ne zelim nikoga vise Gledam kako grane oblace se liscem Sama kao uvijek do sada

    Stranges hands don’t have your gift
    Although everything you say I already know
    I’m lost in the dark, ignorance
    Everything stands in silence
    My name is music in the sound of your voice

    I’m searching for others, others you’re looking for
    I hope, still hope
    But only the wrong ones find us
    At the end of the day I’m still here
    And you’re still there, alone
    Time and people seem to escape
    I know you know it…

    Call me at least to touch me
    I know you’re no good with others
    Don’t want no magical mornings
    I’ll fall in love tomorrow…

    Others lips speak different stories
    You’re kissing me, kissing me
    So I want no one else
    I watch the trees dress up with leaves
    Alone as I’ve been all along

    I just discovered them as well cause a friend from Montenegro emailed me the link. Very good stuff.
    I also gave it a try with the translation
    Enjoy

    Another hands dont have your touch
    Even though everything you tell me i already know well
    I am tapping in the dark, in the haze
    Everything else is in the silence
    Your voice plays my name the best
    I look for others and you as well
    I am hoping, i really am
    Yet we always get the wrong ones
    At the end of the day I am still here
    You, there, alone
    Time and people are ahead of us
    I know you know
    Call me to touch me
    There you always fail
    No magical mornings
    I fall in love tomorrow
    Another lips, another stories
    You kiss me, you kiss me
    To not to want anyone but you
    I watch how branches are putting on their spring coats
    Alone as i have always been
