about

Shht proudly presents to you their sophomore album ‘Noneketanu’. Much more a result of collaboration than its predecessor, the music featured on the album stems from a busy year crammed with jamming and performing as a strong, grooving unit. Lyrically, the subject matter zooms in this time, to deal with a much more personal experience of sheer joy and sorrow.

Since the release of their debut album Shht has built up quite the live reputation, and for ‘Noneketanu’ they set themselves the challenge to capture this live energy in the form of a recorded piece of music. The result is ‘Noneketanu’, spanning from simple songs to unprecedented polka rave, it was recorded mostly in live takes, adding only a few overdubs afterwards, if any.

about

Shht Ghent, Belgium

Shht (Ghent, Belgium) are Space Rock for the now generation. Seeking to expose a sublime truth in all things kitsch and quirky, the combined force of what constitutes Shht results in an enticingly wet post-pop dream. A modern digital bricolage of ideas delivered by a band with chemical minds and a singer hanging from the roof mentally and physically. Shht are deconstructing deconstruction. ... more

Track Name: Hello? Hello!
Lyrics:

what I would like to talk to you about tonight
when you’re not sure about what is and is not right
we all are walking down the road and that’s just fine
make sure you’re not too slow or you’ll get left, left behind

but sometimes I’m thinking at night:
left, right, up, down, wrong or right?
nowhere left to go but straight ahead
we are alive, one day we’ll be dead

left, right, up, down, wrong, right?
I don’t know why
ins outs wake sleep days nights

we’re going up again

and all we know is our left foot goes in front of the right
and our right in front of the left and vice reversa
and let’s not forget about the clock, shouting tick tock
and he or she waits for no one, there’s only one direction and it’s straight ahead

I’m feeling perfectly fine
passing time, that’s ok for a while
right track, it’s always straight ahead
some things are better left unsaid

we’re going up, we’re going down
going up again, going down
Track Name: Morning Coffee
Lyrics:

morning coffee, evening wine
yesterday was great, today I’m fine
looking at people, looking at me
who’s that someone I want to be?

we offer you blessings from the cornucopia
there’s more where that came from, as long as you call me papa
I wear tin shoes, I gotta dress sharp
these morning blues won’t tear me apart

morning coffee, evening wine
yesterday was great, today I’m fine
I am looking at people, looking at me
who’s that someone I want to be?

I had too much coffee, too much wine
yesterday was great, today I’m crying
I am looking at people who are walking by
now who’s that guy that I call I?

I’m an individual and my will is strong
so hand me the bottle, ‘cause it’s been too long

where did you go?

morning, morning, morning
evening, evening, evening
Track Name: Heavy Hearts
Lyrics:

no need for heavy hearts where we’re headed
I told you from the start, you’re way too far ahead
I know how to play a part in Tinseltown
so don’t ask me for honest cards, ‘cause they’ll just let you down

I guess it’s plain to see
how much you mean to me
come and level up with me
take in my fantasy

I guess it’s plain
Track Name: Epos
Lyrics:

oh baby, I love you so
baby it’s time to go

I’m gonna love you ‘til I die
so young and forever alone, and together
Track Name: Magic Man
Lyrics:

I’m no saint looking out to pray
nothing’s really gonna come my way
so we all got plans? I’m going out today
looking for times, no real words to say

walking uptown, frantic man
tell me what he’s up to, tell me if I can
get to know his plan
somebody tell me about the magic man
come out to play, will he show me when?

I feel like Jesus’ son
after all, aren't we all?
I cannot see it
I could not see it

fuck it all
where’d you gone?
I know I should see him
but he ain’t nowhere to be found

c’mon let ‘em, man
I’m sick and I’m tired, but say I’m having fun all day
somebody tell me about the magic man
is he feeling alright busy being everybody’s friend?

sitting all the time, but I can stand up once again
working out fine, it’s working out fine today
I don’t ask for much, just for someone to play
look at my cell phone, can’t stop looking all day

be on time
beyond time
doesn’t feel right, calling me out

be on time
feeling out, missing out, sit it out
be yourself, pull yourself together

boy and I feel alright
I feel alive
I’m sick and I’m tired
you’re looking tired
I feel tired
not to be tried
look at what I said

all in time
all it takes
hold it to me
call it a day
spare a dime
for a drink a day

nothing ever feels right,
nothing’s gonna come my way
Track Name: Sosume
Lyrics:

sosume sosume sosume sosume

focus on the difference

oh don’t get me wrong,I’m just looking for a good time
oh won’t take me long, until I go to where the screen shines
I only ask for some peace of mind, second guessing life for a lifetime
oh won’t take me long, I’m zoning out
Track Name: Talk About
Lyrics:

hello and welcome (to the sonic recreation of the rest of your life)
would you please be so kind as to allow us to talk about the subject
of the matter and that would be
you

I would like to talk about… you

I would like to talk about, talk about you
would you like to talk about, what you’d like to talk about too
I would like to talk about you

create meaning through words, no meaning without words
there’s no me without thee and no you without my point of view
you’re so pretty, you’re so fine and smart and funny all the time
I could talk about talking about you
as long as I want to, as long as I need to

and this is true

I would like to talk about you
Track Name: Way Down
Lyrics:

paralyse yourself, I can read the lies into your health
never mind about the truth, we all know it’s of no use
not now

don’t believe it’s happening, but don’t you see it is happening?
I suppose in time, everything will turn out just fine

there’s a place in my mind where I’ll hide
there’s no space or time way down

I have no excuse, that’s all
choose to leave it to your call
I suppose I’ll wait for someone else to tell me it’s too late

so come and ask me, what are you thinking of?
you’ve got the questions, not I
it’s plain to see nothing’s wrong, so just keep going on

paralyse yourself, I can read the lies into your health
never mind about the truth, we all know it’s of no use
not now
