about

Indiepop or Whatever! is the new EP released at Shelflife Records limited to 300 copies. Includes four new songs. The title of the EP is an attempt to acknowledge all the musical influences in the band. Although it's obvious that indiepop is one of their main ones, they also take inspiration from 90's britpop, shoegaze, punk-pop, synthpop and even grunge. Elena explains "when sometimes people ask what kind of music we make, the answer is indiepop... or whatever you may call it." She later wrote a song with that name and it seemed to fit perfectly as the title of the EP.

"Song for Carrie Mathison", the first single from the EP, is a pure-pop song filled with energetic jangly guitars and bittersweet synths and is dedicated to Homeland's Carrie Mathison, one of Elena's and Antonio's favorite TV shows. "Indiepop or Whatever" is a twee punk-pop song written about what it's like being in a band and performing live at popfests. At times it all suddenly turns into a dream, so far away from everyday life that you'd wish it could last forever. "Daylight Saving Time" is considered by the band as Nalda's grungiest song. The noisy 90's guitars go along with lyrics about being desperately sad for not finding your place in life. "A Secret Plan", which has the super catchy electronic bass and toy synths, is a song written about hope and getting past the worst of times. When Nalda Became Punk continue to lead the new chapter of brilliant Spanish bands and we're pleased to help bring their music to the world.

Track Name: Song for Carrie Mathison
Song for Carrie Mathison

One more look inside the house
listen carefully to your headphones
you can't confess you felt the blame
you saw him sleeping on the floor

And you've been watching
all this time that you've watched him you fell in love
and now you're broken
he ruined your life but you've already forgiven all

Beautiful colours changing their shapes when the night comes
wonderful sounds that you've never listened
electro-shocks
you were so close you almost believed it you were safe
it was so close that you keep on dreamin' but miles away

And deep inside you understand
that your family can be right
that you should try to forget him and
maybe start a simpler life

But you can't stand it
pretending the world is safe and staying home
you want more action
cooking lasagna for the girls is not enough

Beautiful colours changing their shapes when the night comes
wonderful sounds that you've never listened
electro-shocks
you were so close you both almost believed it you were safe
it was so close that you keep on dreamin' but miles away

whatever you decide would be fine
the cabin days will always be on my mind
and after being eight years in the dark you made me see the light
Track Name: Indiepop or Whatever
Indie pop or whatever!


Sometimes i sleep too much
and in my mind, as soon as it can run, I am there again
staring at the modern faces
shouting out loud as ever

These things spread over everything
how can´t you love it?
´cause I just can sigh

And these times I wouldn´t wake up
How could I try? if it´s my song on the radio
we´ve been talking about our expectations
indie pop or whatever!

now i´m young and feel so empty, yes i'm lost and can´t think clearly
they've got it, i miss it, you kids know how to have fun

nd these times I wouldn´t wake up
How could I try? if it´s my song on the radio
we´ve been talking about our expectations
indie pop forever!

now i´m young and feel so empty, yes i'm lost and can´t think clearly
they've got it, i miss it, you kids know how to have fun
Track Name: Daylight Saving Time
Daylight Saving Time

just a lot of faces running on my mind
they have interesting lifes with future, they have plans

it´s so sad,how anybody can feel right?
can´t find a way to rearrange it
so far I´ve never even realised time
flies whatching other people lifes

What if I try to take it and it only makes us cry
and what if I forget these words and leave it all behind

it´s so sad,how anybody can feel right?
can´t find a way to rearrange it
so far I´ve never even realised time
flies whatching other people lifes

just a lot of faces running on my mind
Track Name: A Secret Plan
A secret plan


Where does everybody go when i lie in my bed?
it feels like it will never be cold outside
are you ready to go? Go!
ready to go
ready to go, a secret plan!

Could you tell me there´s no hope so I can calm myself?
if there´s no reason to be here right now
Are you ready to go? Go!
ready to go
ready to go, a secret plan!

I don't think I can take part of what I don't care about
we won't make it, let's get out of it
We are ready to go. Go!
ready to go
ready to go, a secret plan!


And then it will be over
and then it'll be our time
