about

Fräulein Hona Wien, Austria

Since 2010 Fräulein Hona - an all-female singer-songwriter quartet based in Vienna - have made a name for themselves in living rooms, backyards and festival stages around Austria and Europe. Their subtle acoustic songs end up combining the contrasting feelings of weightlessness, melancholy and optimism. If you need more categorization you could simply call it acoustic antifolk. ... more

Track Name: (blue is the colour of) sailors
cars keep exhaling their occasional fumes my lungs keep complaining it rapes the colour of my voice | today we’re more fragile than fragile-x-syndrome ‘cause we’ve been bathing for a while now in this soup of booze and smoke | blue is the colour of sailors and blue is the colour of my mind
i don’t want the sailors to sail on the dirty ocean of my mind |every time the ship moves we throw up our souls and every time the waves scream we lose control | of what has gone down in the ocean the sailors’ hats and ties on the 25th of april i had a wedding party with myself | blue is the colour of sailors and blue is the colour of my mind i don’t want the sailors to sail on the dirty ocean of my mind
Track Name: birds
tell me why it’s so hard to lose to lose when all you lose are curtains tell me why it’s so hard to fall when falling is the first step for flying and tell me why it’s so hard to see to see what’s really important | always searching always chasing moments always looking for something to still my sleepless mind | waking up first step to the mirror looking looking at myself listening to the stranger on the radio waiting for an answer i can’t find by myself and oh i’m glad he tells me what to look like how to smell to move to love to act to be because i’m | always searching always chasing moments always looking for someone to tell me who i am | so who can tell me why we’re following all those rules bowing down in front of a ghost how crazy can we be forgetting what we’re worth brainwashed dancing to these unwritten laws no one knows who actually decides here we lost control a long time ago that’s why we’re | always searching always chasing moments
when all we have to do is love ourselves
Track Name: 24 stunden
in deinen nächtlichen tiraden willst du wissen worauf ich steh und viel zu oft weiß ich nicht was sagen eine nacht ist eine nacht ist eine nacht | denn vor allem steh ich auf denn vor allem steh ich auf | auf unsicherem boden auf erdbebengebiet | meine gleichgültigkeit gleicht den übergroßen models am laufsteg die sich wankend kokett geben und lächeln als würd ein lächeln nichts kosten | bevor sie fallend sich drehn bevor sie fallend sich drehn | wie angeschossne rehe jeder leichtigkeit beraubt | du fragst kaum je wohin meine voraussicht reicht wenn der stundenzeiger 2 mal den kreis jagt und wir uns 4 glas bier geteilt habn | dann bin ich schon zufrieden dann bin ich schon zufrieden | dass ich mir 24 stunden glaubhaft weisgemacht hab ich würd wieder lieben, zumindest für einen tag
Track Name: offside
sun where have you been while all we did was waste away our time when it all seemed so bright and happy like a postcard depicting our life | watch out it’s easy to please us when the money flows and our wardrobe grows as fast as bean sprouts well it’s all about have you seen that movie read that book and heard that song
Track Name: es tanzt nicht
kennst du das gefühl wenn dir übel ist du dich übergeben willst es versuchst versuchst doch es geht nicht | kennst du das gefühl wenn du etwas sagen willst einatmest ausatmest einatmest und es geht nicht | und kennst du das gefühl wenn die gefühle verschwunden sind und du versuchst sie zu finden zu entwinden doch es geht nicht schwimmt nicht fliegt nicht kriecht nicht bewegt sich nicht | kennst du das sind wir durch einen zarten faden verbunden und für den visuellen typ der du wahrscheinlich bist ja siehst du das denn nicht |und für den auditiven typ hör doch einfach hin nur leider ist die stille nicht so groß dass sie wie lärm erschein da ist nichts | und falls du meine gefühle mitgenommen hast schick sie zurück lad sie dem wind auf seine flügel setz sie in den zug jag sie mit fußtritt von dir fort es braucht dafür kein telefon |und kennst du das gefühl wenn die gefühle verschwunden sind und du versuchst sie zu erspüren doch es geht nicht schwimmt nicht fliegt nicht kriecht nicht bewegt sich nicht und vor allem vor allem allem tanzt es nicht es tanzt nicht
Track Name: cinnamon
don't try to swallow the world or the world will swallow you they say we didn't change but i don't think that's true | i try to talk of love but it sounds weary sad and insane it's easier to talk of war fought in a local train | take a minute off and chew on a cinnamon stick | it felt like a year and a half spent in a local bus we couldn't find much sleep and the heat was bothering us | sometimes my heart feels like when you have to take an urgent piss but there's no bathroom around squeeze your legs shed some tears | take a minute off and chew on a cinnamon stick
Track Name: particles
i never have been happier than on those counted rainy days a walk through the woods in our rubber boots a skinny dip in the lake | the coldest water on my skin makes me feel warm till you begin to watch me slipping on the planks my feet are numb i soon have to leave | so watch me slip watch me slip across this floor that feels like ice watch me slip and fall watch me till you don’t know me at all till i forget the particles that form your face till i forget till i forget | and i sure know one can’t change the time but a day can be a year those sad song lines mock the past and the future we don’t have | and a year can be a day if the days never shine in all those colours that we knew it’s a waste of time | so watch me slip watch me slip across this floor that feels like ice watch me slip and fall watch me till you don’t know me at all till i forget the particles that form your face till i forget till i forget | then i want to paint a picture but i can’t recall the form of your cheek bones and your eyes and the angle of your chin | now finally i’ve grown up as much as i’ve grown fat in no time i’ll be running getting funny and childish again
Track Name: deserted place
so this is the end of the world when everything human is gone feels such a long time ago forgot about the time | standing at this line impossible to cross am i really left alone | always trying to walk but going back instead stuck to this deserted place | look at this girl wandering here alone naked as she came it’s cold listen to the silence no one’s left but you you can call as long as you want | longing for a boat that leaves from this place going through the waves back home asking me why why am i here alone | where are you now damn why don’t you talk to me don’t tell yourself that i like this place i hate it here
Track Name: 23rd of december
we swarm like moths around a flickering light that shines with greed and holds us tight it burns our wings and it hurts but still we sing | we can't stop we can’t stop we can’t stop and honestly i'd rather find a place to hibernate these solemn feelings don't seem appropriate back in this old worn out place Sarah says | once a year i get mindlessly pissed | that's why we dance restlessly till the night ends don’t you notice don't you notice can't you see we're not as content as it seems | now we watch the people float around like the tide and everyone is so anxious to know they look fine the skinny girls' red painted lips want to scream | can't you see i cut my hair in London | that's why we dance restlessly till the night ends don’t you notice don’t you notice can’t you see we’re not as content as it seems
Track Name: polaroids
let’s steal away and drink some gin fill our brains with pain and sin fall asleep on the floor | call me lady call me freak loose your shoes, but don't loose me fill your arms with polaroids | leave me waiting on the couch two months with two months without always come and go and go | it's dark outside at five pm heavy snowflakes hit the window pane as i finally stop to miss you
