about

"They’ve managed to create an album that should stand the test of time when all others currently exploring similar sonic territory have faded into the background." ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
- Popmatters

"It's a work that digs deep. It rewards repeated listens, with lyrical questions revealing possible explanations as aural textures subsume and melodies ingrain. It's another fine work in a fine cannon for a brilliant band" ★★★★★★★★☆☆
- Under the Radar

"With "Wizards on the Beach" they have produced a very smart and heavily melodic album, where Moonbabies have found a balance and fresh spirit" ★★★★★★★★☆☆
- Culture Collide

The Dream Pop Husband/Wife Duo Moonbabies (Ola Frick & Carina Johanssson Frick - Both Lead Vocals & Instruments) formed in 1997 in Malmö, Sweden as a shoegaze inspired band progressing steadily into more electronic directions. After a seven-year hiatus, the duo returned with the album "Wizards on the Beach", earlier this spring, which is now given the Deluxe Edition treatment (Out Oct 28th)

Ola Frick, one-half of the Swedish duo elaborates, "This album began as an experimentation of songwriting. We decided to write songs which were rhythmically dominant and our newfound love for dance music, especially the local Berlin scene, where we were living at the time. After Seven years of working on this album, we are extremely proud of the songs and the direction it took. 'Wizards on the Beach' turned from being an artist's worst nightmare to something that we feel is unique, interesting and experimental, but in its core is all about being honest and pure and doing music that speaks to yourself."

Recently featured by BBC6, Brooklyn Vegan, Fresh on the Net, Popmatters, Culture Collide, The Big Takeover, Under The Radar among many and launched its way up to #6 on the Hype Machine charts in Dec 2014

Track Name: Pink Heart Mother
Pink Heart Mother:

I had to change my mind and if you don't mind
I may be nuts if you don't mind

I had to take my ride and if you don't minds
Your baby is nuts... if you don't mind

I like to take my time and if you don't mind
I know my brain is numb and you don't mind

I had to see the world with my own eyes
you know and break it in half if you don't mind

And you love (and you feel)
And your Heart will Swim on
And you have to swim on
And your Heart will Swim on
I know who you are
And you have to swim on

I like to change my ways and if you don't mind
you know a big big ride, bring it on now

I like to change my pride and if you don't mind
your baby's not what she once was

And you love (and you feel)
And your Heart will Swim on
And you have to swim on
And your Heart will Swim on
I know who you are
And you have to swim on
Track Name: Wizards on The Beach
Wizards on the Beach:

You were one of the few who knew,
of peace in your mind
And one of the few who know
It is all in your mind

I don't want that, your feelings in my head
I don't want that, your feelings in my head

You were one of the few who knew,
of peace in your mind
And one of the few who know
It is all in your mind

And I don't want that, you're being in my head
I don't want that, your beam in my head

your beam in my head // you're being in my head

And you come around here to say
That you follow me everywhere
but you don't know that
you don't know that
you don't know that

You follow me everywhere
You follow me in my head
But you don't know who you
who you've pushed…

You were one of the few who knew,
of peace in your mind
And one of the few who know
It is all in your mind

I don't want that, all the feelings in my head
I don't want that, your feelings in my head

And when your thoughts are making the deal
And all the shit you have has sunken at sea
When you know what it means to me
O oh oho ohoohoho

And when your thoughts are going nowhere
You make yourself another deal
But you don't know who you
who you've pushed
from a Gray to a Black hole

your beam in my head // you're being in my head
Track Name: Raindrops
Raindrops
The raindrops keep falling too near
and I just found my way to a tunnel or some hole

Everyone I know is here
Is this how it feels?
When you're knowing that you're near?

Over the clouds on a plane
Always too high to remind me why I used to run away
Some things are not what they seem
I hope there's a way to return to this state and back again

I wanna know where your love has gone
For long you've been gone
I need to know where your love has gone
You've been quiet for so long

The day of the locust
The changes are coming around
Strangeways you're turning me into something i'm not
'cause you are what you are

I wanna know where your love has gone
For long you've been gone
I need to know where your love has gone
You've been quiet for so long
Track Name: Bird Lay Frue
Bird Lay Frue

She keeps all her longing and her Photographs
Halfway she's home while she sighs
While, as I could go the other side
Buried without you know why

She keeps all her longing and her Photographs
Happiness folded inside
While, as I could go the other side
Buried without you even know... it is time

She's the girl in the bubble, dancing, smiling by
Dressing you in gold when you lie
Painless as Johnny Mandell's Suicide
We don't even want to know that

I dream of her longing and her photographs
Happiness folded inside
While, as I could go the other side
Track Name: Playground Dropouts
Playground Dropouts

Insane…
Insane…
Insane…
No beating around the bushes
Insane… Sit down
Track Name: "24"
"24"

Hold on for seventy seconds
beating your hearts
like twin souls
Evening time with only your best friend
there's only one place that she'll never know

I thought I saw you
Say that thing's are not alright
You've been caught in the middle and there's only one way to tell you
The thoughts that's in your head
the things that no one knows
You've got 24 reasons and it's only one way to tell you

yeah she's strong, only your best friend
beating your drums like a raging war
Inside this prison, inside these walls, we're like dominoes
I'll keep on shouting
and you still don't turn around

I thought I saw you
Say that thing's are not alright
You've been caught in the middle and there's only one way to tell you
The thoughts that's in your head
the things that no one knows
You've got 24 reasons and it's only one way to tell you
Track Name: Summerlong Wave
Summerlong Waves:

I'm on my way for a Summerlong Wave to come
Track Name: Chorus
Chorus

Walk 'til I pass out
Today I just follow my gut
Talk to myself
Everyday 'cause there's no one around
I know what I want and I know what is ugly
No one will see me laugh to what's funny
No one will see who's sad for no reason
No one will see who loves
Cause today you have fallen out of luck
and I know I won't look back
And I know in some way it will never last
I know it won't look bad
Do you remember the house by the cemetery?
When you covered up my face
And I know that it's already happening to us

See
That is all you'll have, to be you
You know you've got to know, It's just to see
What is all,
You'll have to see you

Walk 'til I crash
Everyday's like a fork in the eye
I'm the thorn in your side
The moaning, I know
It's a fact
I know what I want and I know what is ugly
No one will see me laugh to what's funny
No one will turn into laughs
for a reason to be loved

See
That is all you'll have, to be you
You know you've got to know, It's just to see
And when you are
You'll have to see it in you
See
That is all you'll have, to be you
You know you're in control.
You'll have to see, what is lost
You'll have to see you

(I see you)
(oh you got to)
(and hear it)
(all of it
Track Name: The Ocean Kill
The Ocean Kill

I bet you, you got that something
It's always nothing & to get on
I'll bring you a son
and I'll treat you like one

Look at you, you got that something
But there is always something wrong
I say you won't come
Just bring yourself on
Look at you, you got wanting
There's only one thing that you know
That same old song
Just bring yourself on

Just when I try to keep the door from slamming in your head
This conflict
is pointless
And when I try to land, the earth will hit the wall
I see this conflict
It's poison

Just when I try to keep the door from slamming in your head
This conflict
is pointless
And when I try to land, the earth will hit the wall
and I see your face no more

Get it soon or be forgotten
Now just say nothing and move on
I'll treat you like a son
Oh just bring yourself on

If I had the chance to leave you in the water
'Cause your presence here is all that I can think of
We got carried away for thinking we could do right
You don't have to fake it
when you're swimming like a teardrop
If I had the chance to leave you in the water
'Cause your presence here is all that I can think of
We got carried away for thinking we could do right
You don't have to fake it
when you're swimming like a teardrop
