Angels And Airwaves – Do It for Me Now

We Don't Need to Whisper

Blink-182 乐队 2005 年末宣告解散之后,乐队主唱兼吉他手汤姆·迪朗格(Tom DeLonge)宣布正式成立新乐队 Angels And Airwaves。这个有意思的乐队名是他起的,天使和电波?缩写是“AAA”,不过乐队对外却喜欢写成“AVA”,因为“AVA”刚好是 Tom 宝贝女儿的名字。乐队的另一大看点是乐队的全明星阵容,包括 Boxcar Racer、The Offspring、The Distillers 等乐队的前成员。

也许他在 Blink-182 时玩厌了 Punk,在新乐队组建之时,他就声称要跟以前划清界限,而向 U2Pink Floyd 等伟大乐队看齐,做点划时代的东西;还表示新乐队 Angels and Airwaves 绝对不是一个 Side-Project,而是他的下半生。这样的大话在前,乐队自当不敢怠慢,很快带出先行单曲“The Advantures”,接着就推出了首张录音室专辑《We Don’t Need To Whisper》,发行首周以12万7千张的单周销量名列 Billboard 200 专辑榜的第四位。

说说这张专辑,无须低语?那就是高呼了。高呼什么?一些有深度有内涵的主题,例如战争。果然是不成功便成仁,一鼓作气之下就炮制出了这么张制作十分大气的专辑,很好很强大,我喜欢。有些 PUNK,也有些 U2,也许“伟大”真的并不是那么容易一蹴而就,所以总体上还是流露着一股稚气。特别是主唱那把“娃娃音”,跟 BONO 大叔还是有很明显距离= =|||。不过我喜欢的,也正正是这种不老成的理想和冲劲。

“一张令人闭上双眼,可以让人逃离现实生活的专辑;让人感到舒服,让人有飞翔于云层的感觉”,没错。“Do It for Me Now”就是这样的歌,他们做到了,我们听到了。对于这样的野心和诚意,我没有什么理由可以不叫好!New Wave/Post Punk 的风格果然还是比较适合我,无须很沉重,但又不会太轻浮,刚刚好!

乐队在 2007 年又推出单曲“Everything’s Magic”,年底发行第二张专辑《I-Empire》,我没细听,都是刚搜出来的,不过乍看还是被这专辑名吓到,果然很皇很暴力!!!推荐!

Angels And Airwaves – Do It For Me Now

I’m frightened at night and the wind has a roar
It seeps through the hall and from under the door
Like the shit that was said
I can’t take it that well
I give and I give and I give and I give and I’m still
Lost and hurt and bone thin from the love that’s been starved
I know it got close but I’m sure it’s too far
From the point of suspense, we know it should be
The end of that part of our favorite movie
When the guy grabs the girl and gives her his hand
Says take me away from this torturous land
Cause the grave is set up, the hole that I dug
I gave and I gave and I gave and I gave you my trust
Like the time that we kissed and you gave me a lie
To add to the scene you pretended to cry
But I’m here and I’m cool, the way that it is
Just give me a chance and I’ll try to forgive

And I don’t know
And I can’t guess
If it’s gonna be OK
But now my last wish
Is that you do this with me
Kiss me here and hold my hand
Let me feel like I’m the only one
I know you can
Won’t you do it for me now

I’ve really had it with the rain of the tears
The predictable storm that has come every year
And it sneaks in from shore with a bat in its hand
I’m trying I’m trying I’m trying I’m trying I can’t
You’re a thief and a witch but I love you to death
You steal my heart and curse under your breath
But the one thing that I can most willingly prove
That when you are gone I’ll be fine without you

And I don’t know
And I can’t guess
If it’s gonna be OK
But now my last wish
Is that you do this with me
Kiss me here and hold my hand
Let me feel like I’m the only one
I know you can
Won’t you do it for me now?

Now just hold on, hold on to me
Hold on, hold on to me (hold on to me)
