Happiness is to be found when in pursuit of it, in the soothed expectation, on the way, not only upon the arrival. Accepting detours, just going the way, which is anyhow not this obvious to anyone.
Thomas Bettinelli

Happiness is just a hairflip away.

"The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they're online, the world sees them. They don't get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They're in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness".
Tom Ford


Zibra - "Eclipse"

The Eighties was such a fertile decade for Brit pop that it’s no surprise to find contemporary bands looking back to the decade for ideas and inspiration. Sam Battle (vocals), Russell Jones (synths) and Ben Everest (bass) of indie band Zibra are influenced by the great electronic groups of that era, like Depeche Mode, Cabaret Voltaire, Human League, and they look the part, too. Donatella Versace is a fan -and you could discover them on Morphosis. Two songs in particular, "Heartache" and "Chlorine", are largely responsible for starting tongues wagging about the band. Expect them to rule the British underground for a while, then do what all Depeche Mode-like bands do -become massive in Germany. After, "Great white shark", "Paris", "Flats in Dagenham", and "Wasted days" (click on all six titles to be redirected), Zibra are back with "Eclipse", taken from their "EP2000" EP. This massive electrop-pop song has all the big power of Eighties music with more bounce than a pornstar's tits, rolling heavy and slow but it's an avalanche of sound that annihilates everything before it. After the weird and wonderful scenarios that have appeared in for some of their previous videos, the trio delivers a dark clip that shows them performing in a dark room with a bright light on them that honest fits perfectly for the title of the song. And after seven gigs earlier this months, they'll be performing another seven concerts in April.
