about

My Drunken Haze is a greek band formed in the spring of 2010 by guitarist, songwriter and composer Spir Frelini, as an attempt to mix neo-psychedelic music with the 60's garage guitar sound and ethereal dream pop vocals. In 2011 guitarist Harry Kane joined the band, while in 2012 they found their singer, Matina Sous Peau. The rhythm section was staffed with Nick Zoura on the drums and Costa Gunn on bass.
In early 2014 during the recordings, they built their debut track by track with the help of King Elephant, who has produced the album. An album starring the character of a woman in search of love, longing, separation and redemption, set against a backdrop of daydreaming, drugs and the hot sand of a summer beach. The band follows new musical directions and their already assimilated origins (The Byrds, John Barry, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Still Corners and many more) are assembled into a full effect divided into two parts.
The first side of the album carries echoes of the 60s through a lost summer of turbulent experiences, rock'n'roll, sexual liberation, hallucinations, destruction and self-destruction. The second side, darker musically and lyrically, refers to Nouvelle Vague cinema, building an atmosphere of surrealism and recounting an unfinished love story, distorted through the lens of a kaleidoscope. As demons hiding in the storm, the refrain of the album marks the path to purification.
Nine different aspects of the personality of a girl surrendered to autosuggestion. Nine different girls who are trying to coexist in captivity in a derelict casino full of illusions.

Track Name: Carol Wait
She was drowning
On a Saturday night
And she was living
On the line
She's alive and well
But now little Carol is living in hell
It's so easy
When you live in a lie
But you will never
Learn to try
Lost in a haze
Her thoughts and words are phasing
Track Name: Gambling Woman
I'm a gambling woman
Married to a gambling man
Let me tell you a story
Of how it all began
Once upon in Vegas
There was a dusty van
Full of pills and booze
And desert blood
Lord I'm gonna change
Swear I'm gonna change
Well i can't change
Fuck it
I'm gonna fall in love
It was summertime
And the sun was hitting my eyes
I could barely feel
What was in my mind
I was dancing stoned
Out in the dark
Then i saw him coming
Dressed in black
Lord I'm gonna change
Swear I'm gonna change
Well i can't change
Fuck it
I'm gonna fall in love
Track Name: Yellow Balloon
There's a yellow balloon
Flying high in the sky
Comes into my house
Kept wondering why
Why no children play
Where do they hide
I see those empty streets...Oh!
I'll turn to blue tonight
Where is yesterday
People want to change
They just forget to try, shame
We stay the same
I'm not gonna lie
I'm just a yellow balloon
That came down from the sky
Can you see me...Boom!
Glad to see you smile
Track Name: Girl Who Looks Like A Boy
I had a dream, I wanted to meet
A girl who looks like a boy
Inside me I know that I'm willing to be
Her very special toy
I'm trying so hard, I want it so bad
Its killing me day and night
Make up your mind and give it a shot
To see where this is going
Cause its not so wrong
If we get along
I'm standing at your door
(I'm staring at your door)
Cause its not so wrong
If we get along
Gimme a little lovin I want it babe
Gimme a little livin I need it babe, I said
I'll give you a little lovin for sure
Track Name: Pleasing Illusions
As I walk through the desert sand
I hold you and you hold my hand
While I change my point of view
You turn to me and I turn into you
Honey I'm going back for more
As the sun sets under the sky
White dove rests and the falcon takes flight
Floating skulls are laughing at me
You're the gatekeeper but I've got the key
Honey I'm going back for more
Track Name: Reflections Of Your Mind
There is a place where the truth can't hide
All that you think
All that you see
Vanishing reflections of your mind
Wide awake, wide awake
You got to feel it
You got to want it
So bad, so bad
You said you need it
So don't you treat me
So bad, so bad
There is a place where the truth can't hide
All that you think
All that you see
Vanishing reflections of your mind
Wide awake, wide awake
You got to feel it
You got to want it
So bad, so bad
You said you need it
So don't you treat
Track Name: Paper Planes
Take your paper planes
And fly
To velvet, velvet skies
As a little girl, you used to handle men
Like paper planes
But they never, no they never
Never flew to your sky
Do you still can feel
The change
In the colours of your tears
And i can fly
So high, so high
Me and my
Paper planes, paper planes
Because the world is so small, so small
And they don't let me, dream no more
Dream no more
Me and my
Paper planes, paper planes
We can fly
So high, so high
In a blackened sky
We paint it white
Paint it white
Me and my
Paper planes, paper planes
Track Name: I Wanna Dream Again
I know a girl who knows a girl
Who has a friend that knows a friend
Who sold their souls for rock n roll
Oh man, what do they know
Let's surf and ride the summertime
Under the waves of morning, morning sun
Oh no please
Don't wake me up
I wanna dream again
I know a dog who knows a dog
That saw devils dance to heaven
It's been so long wearing this crown
Wandering out searching for my fortune
Sometimes in dreams I see a lonely witch
Curing her mother's blossom, blossom heart
Oh no please
Don't wake me up
I wanna dream again
Track Name: Endless Fairytale
Light
Bring the light
Golden mornings
Starless skies
It's my summertime
Call, call my name
Ships are falling
On the shore
Breaking the dawn
And i will do the best that i can
To keep the ghosts outside your door
In this endless fairytale
The daemon's claws ripped my soul
