about

In The Backyard Semallé, France

Depuis 2010, s’inscrivant dans un univers Pop/Rock, ITB mêle ses influences (Archive, Radiohead, Ghinzu…) à son quotidien. Spontanément, il s’en dégage une sensibilité et une énergie communicative.
Flirtant avec un univers progressif, les guitares envoûtantes et agitées se lient à une section rythmique bien rodée et à une voix féminine aux textes personnels qui ne laissent pas indifférent.

Track Name: Harder Than Honey
Pulling a trigger enough to settle on this gorgeous land
I miss the rain
Chasing the devil the crowd is over
But it’s hard to whisper in a polluted world
Creating me problems I still believe that
The Life is better somewhere else

Dancing and dancing and moving my body
Such a stupid puppet I feel so good.

And I kiss your neck under a holy bush
You see me (as) the same as in a comic cartoon
I kiss your neck, you see me (as) the same

Sleeping for days, I hibernate solo,
Don’t disturb me I could be nasty
I’m such an old bear depressing more,
Harder than honey I’m resisting

And I kiss your neck under a holy bush
You see me (as) the same as in a comic cartoon
I kiss your neck, you see me (as) the same

Looking back on me the wind which blew
During this kiss I’m laughing at myself
I’m too romantic it turns in the great masquerade
I’m your sad baby

And I kiss your neck under a holy bush
You see me (as) the same as in a comic cartoon

I kiss your neck, you see me (as) the same...
Track Name: Transformed
I will make of you a man
You a trans or something else for others men
You will thank, you will thank me for the transform

TV break, Movie makes,
Movie making on a big cam and on a big bed
Oh Big Ben will be ringing on London

With a stripe on our couch
We are hype and we are rough

You are now a transformed
And I’m riding you again, and I confirm
We’re in a race and we will win
Oh Today and tomorrow again.
Track Name: You Stay Here (The Coward)
You seem to feel like a coward
If you go out and run.

Maybe, you will have an award
To be so deaf and dumb.

But you stay here, you listen
With all the fears of the world
On your shoulders.

You will soon decide to set off
Cause you’ll be too tired.
You will meet up great clever men
That nobody listens, nobody listens to.

But you stay here, you listen
With all the fears of the world
On your shoulders.

Maybe up to the end of the world
You will keep your slippers.
You will remain laid on the ground
And Watch crossing the sun.

But you stay here, you listen
With all the fears of the world
On your shoulders.
Track Name: Paper Boats And Owls
I am a psycho and I keep eyes opened to look for my bear
Who has give it away
In my paranoia you know
I feel for you some like a « tic » in my head

When I say hello, boy,
You put your eyes on me as if I was a fool man

No I don’t think so
I’m just crossing the road even if you’re on my way

Now in my melodrama
You draw my dreams on paper boats and owls
Yesterday, I drew on my window some smiley boy
I still kiss on the neck
I paint with yellow
The sky, the snow and the whole sky with grey

You go in my sorrow to know what’s my own
What’s my great problem

That’s why I’m where you are

Your mind is a better shelter
Than my mind who’s the saddest shelter ‘cause
Your mind is a better shelter
Than my mind who’s the saddest
Shelter…

I am a psycho and I keep eyes opened to look for my bear
Who has give it away.
Track Name: Pay You For The Night
I wish I had you for the night
I swear that i will be a man
I won’t be shy you will be there
I go inside, you go insane.
And I’m ready. Are you ready ?

Oh pretty, pretty womanized
I feel you skin on my, oh my,
My body sweet, my legs, my mind,
You go insane, I go inside.
And I’m ready.

I’m ready to pay you for the night.
I’m ready to bear, to know the price.

I want to join you in your bed
I wish you hate you’re scared
I want you to hang me, hang,
Into your arms oh by your nails

Oh please my Darling come in my
My cardboard box, my shelter, my
My legs, my mind, my skin my ride
My legs, my mind, my skin my ride

And I’m ready to pay you for the night.
I’m ready to bear, to know the price.
Track Name: My Empty Flat Is Meaningless
I wish I met you not today
I cannot bear the sense of prayer
And by the way I walk a way
I don’t return my back on bay
I don’t give up my soul who says
That by the way I walk a way
I don’t return my back on bay

No I don’t want to see you now
You remind all the blood, the lies
I keep in my mind I keep inside
And all the words you left behind
You put in bottles you put in bags
Your underpairs, your socks, your bras
Your photo booth, which I like not
Your fucking music I don’t like

My empty flat is meaningless
I try to perform it with sex
My empty flat is meaningless
I try...
Track Name: Jerk Me
The rain, the fog, my brain who falls
Behind the folks who strikes the pose, no where to go
And I’m crushing out, crushing out like a fool runner in a marathon
Yellow the cab driving me mad « Where is my mind »
Singing in mind, but what to find
And I’m the king now, the king now like Forest Gump on the “66” road

You jerk me now
You jerk me

But what the fuck, where do you hide, maybe I’m blind,
Maybe you’re shy answer me now.
I look for you now, Oh like Tom the cat who searches Jerry now.
Answer me now ! It’s not so fun I am frightened
Where are you stuck? are you unsafe ?
Because I panic now, I panic now
And I’ll break the cab with a baseball bat.

The rain, the fog, my brain who falls
Behind the folks who strikes the pose, no where to go
And I’m crushing out, crushing out
And I’ll break the cab with a baseball bat.
Track Name: Join The Pole
When I heard
«The better is to sell again your own soul »
To enter in the classic hole,
The world we live in nowadays

Mum I get out, sorry I’m selfish

When the music is frustrating,
What’s my goal?
I join the pole.
And speak to seals,
The only ones who understand me

Mum I get out, sorry I’m selfish
And that’s all that I can be

And when also
I prostitute myself for all,
you fuck me too
And that’s awesome,
To see the lies I can invent
When I’m above

Mum I get out, sorry I’m selfish
And that’s all.
