Re: Cefiya: AE: Jetta - Start A Riot

We have a winner!

Thanks to all who voted in this little NF :) - It will be the Liverpool girl, whom won 2-6 against Canada's Young Empire, with the song that gave Cefiya/Jeffia it's best ever NSC result by ending 7th in NSC 90 with her song about running away from everything and starting a riot


Lyrics

Freeze in the fire
Feeding the lions roar
Breathe in the silence
And we bring it alive
Oooh

Stealing the dark
Erasing the shadows
We're leading the stars
Seeing with our eyes closed

My heart aches
My heart aches
My heart aches
When I think of you

And my heartache
My heartache
My heartache
Then I think of you

2x
(And we could)
Run away with it
Runaway with me
Runaway start a riot

Making a vow
You're tasting the tonic cold
Bitter without
Breaking a promise ohh

My heart aches
My heart aches
My heart aches
When I think of you

And my heartache
My heartache
My heartache
Then I think of you

2x
(And we could)
Run away with it
Runaway with me
Runaway start a riot

But it's alright
Let it burn off
Yeah it's alright
Let it all go

My heart aches
My heart aches
My heart aches
When I think of you

And my heartache
My heartache
My heartache
Then I think of you

2x
(And we could)
Run away with it
Runaway with me
Runaway start a riot

Runaway with me x2
Runaway start a riot

Runaway with me x2
Runaway start a riot




Ps. I am at the moment fighting with myself to decide Cefiya's NSC 102 entry... Right now between two songs.. Will hopefully choose soon...

Re: Cefiya: AE: Jetta - Start A Riot

Well it's time for a Cefiya comeback, I know you all have missed me! Just admit it!
Therefore I will give you a female vocalist who sings a great little love songs, a little corny lyrics but I love them and speaks to me. Behind her we have a band, that provides great drumming and some SWEET guitar riffs though out the entire song, and yeah now you think it will be rock right? Naah we are touching the poprock genre, maybe with a twist of what people love to call indie well we at least have triangles in the video.
The band I am sending is called We Are Twin, a group that started with Germany-raised Sri Lankan multi-instrumentalist and producer Nicolas Balachandran met the New York-born singer songwriter Gabi Christine at a songwriting session where they immediately clicked and formed the group. Don't have much else about the group other than that the song I am sending to NSC 102 is their first single "The Way We Touch" the song is from their first EP called after their group name. But enough of me writing.

Let me introduce to you the entry from Cefiya in NSC 102

We Are Twin - The Way We Touch


Lyrics
I've got my hands
around your neck,
my lips up on your chest
You love it how I need you boy,
oh dare I say the rest
The people they can stare, I don't mind it, I don't care
as long as we together we got love extraordinaire

When we were by the ocean
and you turned to me to say
Girl don't you ever go
and try to change
no matter what anybody says
If you would be my best friend,
than I would build a home
Where the both of us
can live alone,
where you can
grow into your own.

You'd be the best that I ever hoped for
I love it how I can't resist the way you are
The way we touch
If we are a match, I'd give you everything I longed for
I love it how I can't resist the way you are, the way we touch

You got on a hook,
from the moment you said baby
If I faint from over heating call the martial Mr. Davy
I'm running out of breath, I feel it in my head
I can't go on without you boy, let's hit the road to live

If you would be my hero,
than I would be your girl
You could have me
anytime you want
Even early in the morning sun
I only have my chevy
and the keys to my heart
oh, take me for a ride
to the moon
I forget the world
when I'm with you

You'd be the best that I ever hoped for
I love it how I can't resist the way you are
The way we touch
If we are a match, I'd give you everything I longed for
I love it how I can't resist the way you are,
The way we touch

Re: Cefiya: AE: Jetta - Start A Riot - NSC 102: We Are Twin - The Way We Touch

A little update from Cefiya... Everything is fine an dandy.. Just busy with uni-project.. But hopefully I will have time for next edition :) - But I have found out that former NSC artist from Cefiya, Jetta is moving up in the world.. Her latest single is being used in a google video: Google Zeitgeist | Here's to 2013 - YouTube

And former Cefiyan entry: "Start A Riot" video has got a little production upgrade + a lot of new clips, dunno if it is for the better but that is up to NSC to decide:


So it looks like maybe 2014 could be Jetta's year :D

Merry Christmas and happy new year from me! :)

That was her? :eek:
I was racking my brain trying to work out where I had heard that song before.

That is indeed her and this is the song:

Re: Cefiya 106: Broken Bells - Leave It Alone

Well Bad Suns didn't do well last edition but I would like to thank all who did vote for the song :)

Now to the serious stuff.. I have chosen to send a little more known band whom you might know for the song "The High Road" which was quite popular in 2010ish and their self-named debut album sold Gold in US and was generally well recieved. It will be American indie rock band Broken Bells who will represent Cefiya in NSC 106.
In the previous half year they have released a couple of singles leading up to their newly released album "After the Disco" both singles was good but the single "Leave It Alone" that they released the same day they dropped their album caught me off guard. IMO it is a masterpiece. It has everything that I look for in a song to fall in love.. Lead singer James Mercer (also known from The Shins) brilliant voice in the mix of chill melody and with beautiful lyrics just give me chills! And I hope you will all feel the same that I feel everything I feel while listening to this little gem

Cefiya presents:
Broken Bells - Leave It Alone


Lyrics:

Uuuu uuuu uuuuh
Uuuu uuuu uuuuh
Uuuu uuuu uuuuh

All this time I'd never let you go,
And now the same chains that I kept you in they're
holding down my soul
I set you up, I gave you life,
I dragged you out the fire,
and now you knocked me down, you shut me out,
And I can see it in your eyes!
Somehow you got it in your head,
That you can make it on your own!
You were sheltered, loved and fed,
But you just couldn't leave it alone

Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone

Well your heart was here,
resting on my lap
And I'd do it all again,
But I'm never coming back!
Well I know I'm lying,
lying in the cold
Yeah, there's snow on the ground, and if I know myself,
I'll be leaving down the road
I've been all around the world,
But I got nowhere to go,
I gave into this lonely life,
and you can't change me now, so leave it alone

Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone

The ghosts are on the green, each and every night
oh, the distant light
that's the hardest part to take,
that's the heart of all my pain,
lying in the cold,
oh, the distant light
in a hue we can't describe
still we know

Uuuu uuuu uuuuh
Uuuu uuuu uuuuh
Uuuu uuuu uuuuh

could it all be over now
we've seen it all the while
there's no dimension to the clouds
the moon and world around
that's the heart of all my pain
cause I don't want to go
oh, the distant light
in a hue we can't describe
still we know

Uuuu uuuu uuuuh
Uuuu uuuu uuuuh
Uuuu uuuu uuuuh

Re: Cefiya 107: Sons Et Al - Day By Day

Again thanks first and foremost to all who voted for Broken Bells both in the semi and the final! Another 20th place for Cefiya is great for our portfolio of 20th places! :D

For this edition we are going to the land down under! Where up-and-comming Sons Et Al can be found, They have just today released their new EP "Godspeed" today. On that EP I've decided to take one of their singles "Day By Day" to represent Cefiya in NSC 107! "Day By Day" gives me the feeling that I can chill while listening to their music and you can hear that they are inspired by bands like the xx, Foals and Here We Go Magic. So if you like one of these or all of them you are in for a treat. Without futher ado let me present:

Cefiya's NSC 107 entry

Re: Cefiya 108: 2 song, HOME NF!

First and foremost thanks to all who voted for Sons Et Al in previous edition :D

But it's a new edition already and of course Cefiya needs a song. Problem is that I am currently madly in love with two songs which have the word "Home" in their title so of course since I can't decide, this will be a HOME NF! Scoring is as normally in these 2 song NFs add a point to your favorite song that you want to represent Cefiya in NSC 108. This time around I will not write a lot about the songs other than they are both great even through they both can seem quite "popish" but they have the "indie" flair so lets get to it!

Song no.1: Great Good Fine Ok - Not Going Home


Song no. 2: Hedegaard - Happy Home


The score:
Not Going Home 0 - 0 Happy Home

Let the voting begin! DL is 23:59 on 09/04/14
