about

Cher journal,

Voilà un peu plus de 2 ans que // Clear Eyes / Full Hearts / Can’t Lose //, le premier album de Team Wild, est sorti. 2 ans que je suis arrivée à Nashville TN, en novembre 2016. Pendant que je m’installais, quelqu’un d’autre emménageait à la Maison Blanche. On applaudira le timing.
2 ans que tu me laisses t’écrire combien l’avenir du monde m’angoisse, combien le déni de science me dépasse, combien l’air ambiant pue tant le racisme transpire, combien la religion qu’on impose m’insupporte, combien l’immobilisme global me déprime. Alors que je passais mon temps à réfléchir à la vacuité de la musique dans cette situation, incapable de jouer, un jour tu es tombé et tu as tout recraché à mes pieds. La musique avait toujours été là. Il est temps de te soulager et de sortir le premier volume de ce journal américain, // The American Diary / Vol.1 //.
À demain

----------
Dear Diary,

It has been a little bit more than 2 years since // Clear Eyes / Full Hearts / Can’t Lose //, Team Wild’s first album, was released. 2 years ago, I moved from France to Nashville, on November ’16. While I settled here, another one moved in the White House. Great timing. 
2 years that you let me tell you how the future of the world makes me anxious, how the denial of science is beyond me, how the air stinks as racism sweats, how I can’t stand religion put upon us, how this whole inertia depresses me. Unable to play, spending my time thinking about the vacuity of music in this situation, one day you fell and you spat everything out on my feet. The music has been here all along. It’s time now to relieve you, by releasing this first volume of my American diary, // The American Diary / Vol.1 //.
Thanks for listening, talk soon

about

Team Wild Nashville, Tennessee

The Gun Club’s ghosts might well have turned into builders to extend their highway from Nashville to Lille – burying the last remaining landmarks under the gluey tar while a burning wind was blowing. In the desert, Amélie D.Noordzee calls up thunder with Jeffrey Lee Pierce, tames the rattlesnake with Kate Bush, and heals the puma’s paw with Karen Dalton. ... more

Track Name: / Before We Disappear /
// Before We Disappear //

Take me out of here /
Out of here, out of Earth, Universe as we know it /
Draw a new frontier /
A new line, some new finds, a new door out of the myst /

// I wanna know the whole truth //

Leave the past behind /
A new start, fresh new mind, ready for the big One /
Us as smart as blind /
Feel the vibes, break the trad, we just know we know nothing /

// All I seek is the whole truth //

Leave the past behind /
Keep a modest mind /
// Humility is sexy //
Us as smart as blind /
All one of a kind /
// We pray for discoveries //

// We are self-starters, translators of the dark languages //
// We are travelers, in the past and the future ages //
// Will we learn anything before we disappear? //

Give me excitement, teach me all /
I’ll be bold, feed me with science /
We know we know nothing /
On this ring, you Master, all I am is humble /

// All I want is the whole truth //

Leave the past behind /
Keep a modest mind /
// Humility is sexy //
Us as smart as blind /
All one of a kind /
// We pray for discoveries //

// We are self-starters, translators of the dark languages //
// We are travelers, in the past and the future ages //
// Will we learn anything before we disappear? //
Track Name: / From The Core Of The Fire /
// From the Core of the Fire //

Tell me there’s nothing to be scared of /
Tell me why these rumors grow /
This awful sound, this roaring flow /
Of vicious speech on the radio /
Tell me there’s nothing to be frightened /
There’s a light at the end /
A warm fire, a friendly hand /
A seat for me, a piece of land /

// From the core of the fire, there’s nothing left to see
/ From the core of the fire, but the ones who feed it //

Tell me there’s no need to feel anxious /
We’ll survive anything gross /
That beauty and love are the most /
Powerful among all shots /
Tell me it’s temporary /
That as loud is the fury /
It’s nothing more than a storm /
Forgotten as soon as gone /

// From the core of the fire, a phrase comes to my mind
/ From the core of the fire, who benefits from the crime ? //

// Troubled times of the new century //

Tell me that all these scared people /
Dreaming about another world /
Can see the good sides of this one /
Full of beauties and fun /
Tell them by the way it’s a globe /
No doubt faith can’t be forced /
Blacks and whites are equal /
Fake news are losers weapons /

From the core of the fire, lay the corpses of the dreams
From the core of the fire, of a kid from the 80’s

// Troubled times of the new century //
// From the core of the fire, there’s nothing left to see //
// But the dead corpses of the dreams //
// Of a kid from the 80’s //
Track Name: / The Good Guy /
// The Good Guy //

Hush, sunny and bright or dark at night /
Hush, here for us, ready to fight /
Whenever, all, younger and old, prayin’ cryin’ hopin’ /
This precious one, without uniform, will show up /
And change our end /

//Who’s ever seen him, at least met him once? /
//Has he heart of this one? Will he save us from crime? /
//It can’t be a tale to ease people’s minds /
// A story to tell a child /
// When he’s scared and can’t sleep tight //

Hush, hold on my dear, keep faith in the force /
He has no fear but a gun of course /
Any second now, he’ll end the drama,
stoppin’ the killing we’re in /
It’s all what they say, we can’t be at play /
Money can’t come first /

//Who’s ever seen him, at least met him once? /
//Has he heart of this one? Will he save us from crime? /
//It can’t be a tale to ease people’s minds /
//A story to tell a child /
//Was he busy, did he stop for gaz? /
//Maybe he’s the late kind of guy ? /
//It can’t be a tale to ease people’s minds /
//The story of the good guy /
//When we’re scared and can’t sleep tight //
