In these moments of our lives, there is anything more important for us than the fact of believing in Wednesday Lips’ music, a pure proposal without grandiloquent aspirations or Holy Grail searching intentions, simply being that music that flows unexpectedly when the three of us get together, and that would have so little to do with each of us separately.
Coming from different worlds, converging at the same point, in the essence of simple songs that are also different and concise; in the pursuit of audibility, an audibility that stops the world when you listen to it; in a manner that does not ask for anything else than what is clearly necessary and sincere, which we do not often see in nowadays society.
Not being able to live on music does not mean that we cannot live for it, and this is the motto with which we face our second album "Season II: Reasons to stay". With it, consisting in two CDs and a documentary, we bravely face the challenge of expressing our musical interests surrounding ourselves with friends in the form of partnerships and special environments, creating a scenario unlikely to be repeated.
That is why we ask if you want to join our project. A gentle prod would support us, but every ambitious project needs people who strongly believe in it to get ahead. This is when many small thrusts become a tower of strength: Your help today will tell us what to fight for tomorrow.
From our point of view this platform gives meaning to the music scene as never seen before. It is often seen how groups without resources have little to do in front of projects with constant and plentyfull business support, making it difficult to grow without a clever dose of luck and loss of personality for the "greater good".
Today, the new virtual world offers endless options, a new scenario with no rules written by large companies, where we can show what we do and what we really want to do, and ask people if they believe in it to carry on.
Verkami puts us in a position from which we can reverse the process of manufacture in our musical work, making an excellent survey to find out how important is what we do and for how many people we are actually doing it.
THE PROJECT: SEASON II
It has been a year since we are working in this new release. At first we wanted something simple, like the first album, but little by little we came up with the idea that we needed to do a double album and frame it in a documentary.
We believe in the global sense of a CD, which means that all the songs in it are treated in a unique and precise way, as a set of stories told with the same attitude. That is why we have decided that this season should be divided into two different deliveries, Side A and Side B, a clear allusion to the nostalgia of the work on vinyl and cassette, and in an attempt to merge two different ways to tell stories.
"Side A: Songs to Spend a Rainy Afternoon Looking Through The Window". We want this album to be audible, one of those you choose to accompany you in a rainy afternoon while you rethink things to understand them better and resume them calmly, but also with strength.
"Side B: Songs to Spend the Night Sharing a Bottle of Wine". It is a much more acoustic and introspective album. It thrives on a straightforward sound, yet pleasant. Songs to remember and let yourself go.
"Season II: Reasons to stay, the documentary" will capture the whole process of the new season. It will be the explanation of our experience and our collaborators’: the recording, fundraising, music editing, choice of artwork... Everything by the hand of Jonathan Blanco and his team Kluco Studio, who have believed in the project since the first step.
Side A and Side B will be releasen in October, and the Documentary in December.
WHAT WE ASK FOR
At present, it is not easy to make a quality record, not to mention a documentary and two records. We have a total budget of € 8,000, including recording, mixing and mastering of the two CD's, and recording and editing the documentary, in addition to its edition on CD, the realization of the artwork and the photographic material.
From all this, we ask if you can help us with 2,500 €, the rest are at our expense.
We believe it is worth it. And that is why we ask you if you also believe in this project.
Verkami gives us the possibility to offer rewards in exchange of economic collaborations.
After thinking a lot about what to offer and how to offer, we have come up with this list, made thinking with our heart and head, with the intention that you like it and that some of the rewards convince you to help us with this great little boost we need.
Thank you and see you really soon,
Monica, Pol i Albert.
