Jordan Van Ness Wizards on the Beach grabs your heart without hesitation and pulls you through a warm wonderland of summertime nostalgia. A concoction of dreamy melodies and beautiful vocal harmonies, this album captures the brightness of a summer's day as it's reflected through a flickering bonfire, just as the sun begins to crawl towards horizon. Favorite track: "24".

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

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

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

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

"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

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

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

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
