 (by Official Press)

On their first Lp 'Sequence 01' Tara King th unveiled their very own setting, both dark and sensual where electronic, trip-hop and downtempo roamed together. Tara King th. was given the opportunity to spin the textures laid on " sequence 01 " at their furthermost, weaving an outstanding soundtrack for the electro tale "Harold".

While collaborating on an extensive list of projects (concerts, remixes, compilations, music for film works...) and producing a stand-alone EP (the "echoes of the future" EP), Tara King th. released its second album, "The Tara King Theory". Besides being a significant step into the band's development it is also softer and more serene. Inward-led, this second album blended music 'on a cinematic trip' with boudoir-like electro pop.

Now with " A Sigh of relief ", Tara King th. avoids stumbling on the repetition block and delivers an acoustic and raw record. Way acoustic and raw. The band turns away from the electronic buzzword and strips down to the bare essentials: a soft-key electric piano, shrouding and subdued drums, a softly haunting voice -breathy and sultry to boot.

Sequence 01

Tightrope walker

Groping my way in
I find the scene
The scene of the crime
Everything is covered in dust
Was it only a dream
How would I know

I see her body twisting
Under a charmed oppressive air
She' s dancing with my laughs
Dancing with rage
Shaking her hands around my eyes
It drives me mad

Falling in the fit , a fit of angst
Falling in a fit of madness

You wanted to make love
With your guardian angel
You walk on air
I'm the only one
Who can pull the strings
You walk on air
You're a tightrope walker
Above the life I thought out for you
You walk on air…

Ex

Sitting in the cold, like a bottle in the sea, I grow stiff
Kicking a faded rose
Words couple in my head, and give birth
To sickening fragrances

Children cross the street
The stinckbomb rushes on me
I'm old, I'm cold
Scarcely feel alive
Everyone talks so loud
If I was so bold
I would shout abuse
At everybody's round, round, round, round...

Broken away from everyday's hurry, I soften
Roaming around the street
Sleeplessnesses couple in my body, to create
A deformed sensitiveness

Children cross the street
The stinkbomb rushes on me
I'm old, I'm cold
Scarcely feel alive
If I was so bold
I would shout abuse
At everybody's round...

Cold

Scarred
Your back was turned
Curled like an embryo
Take another face
You will be kissed again
I was cold as I mouthed the words
And crawled across the mirror
I wait
Await the next breath
Your name
Like ice into my heart

A shallow grave
A monument to the ruined age
Ice in my eyes
And eyes like ice don't move
Screaming at the moon
Another past time
Your name
Like ice into my heart

Everything as cold as life
Can no one save you?
Everything
As cold as silence
And you never say a word

Your name
Like ice into my heart
Your name
Like ice into my heart

Screwy Girl

This kind of girl likely to make
Your demons lying down
Your demons lying down
Take heed of warnings
Take heed of warnings
I'm here waiting for this faddy girl
Lucky charm
I lost my lucky charm
Without meaning it
I lost my lucky charm

Without meaning it
She's able to plunder you
She plunged a dagger into my back
Into my back

A screwy girl
Like a dream that haunts me

Why should I wait here

Suddenly I see her, suddenly I see her
I'm fired at point-blanck range…

The Tara King Theory

Fourth dimension

There's a storm, brewing outside,
On the roof, patters of the rain,
There's a fire, burning inside,
In the hearth, crackles of the logs.

Come closer, our nest is warm and sweet.
Come nearer, our nest is here.

My fourth dimension is your scent
Thank heavens I've a bent for your scent.

There's a blast, growing outside
By the house, trembling of the trees.
There are us, asleep inside,
There are us, lying side by side…

Come closer, your skin is warm and sweet,
Come nearer, my lips are here.
In my hand, your hair in curls is light,
In my mouth, your skin is silk.

My fourth dimension is your scent
Thank heavens I've a bent for your scent
My first vibration is your scent…
My own perfection is your scent…
My fourth dimension is your scent
Thank heavens I've a bent for your scent…

There's a storm, brewing outside,
On the roof, patters of the rain.
There's a fire, burning inside,
In the hearth, crackles of the logs, the logs…

Five light feelings

Sighing as the rain comes down
Memories fade away
But I can remember
Five light feelings.

One feeling for one sense

First I kept in memory
The scent of the moss
Saturated with rainwater

One feeling for one sense

Then I can see again
The piercing light between clouds
After the storm

One feeling for one sense

And I recall
The frail sound
Of the latest tiny drops

One feeling for one sense

Then I remember you
Taste of your lips
Caress of your skin
Trees above and trees around

Taste of your skin
Caress of your lips
Clouds above and sun around.

Waterblade

Every time I heard of you my heart missed a beat
I had to find you again
And everywhere the wind whispered dreams
I believed in love at first sight
And nothing mattered, nothing mattered any more, but finding you again.

Every time I thought of you my hands started to shake
I had to meet you again
And everywhere your shadow pursued me
It was the last thing that ought to be done
But nothing mattered, nothing mattered any more, but meeting you again.

When would I come across a sign
When would the fortune smile on me...

So I moved heaven and earth I left no stone unturned
I had to ask you who you were
And nowhere I couldn't pick up your trail
I had to track you down
'Cause nothing mattered, nothing mattered
I had to ask you who you were...

Once Upon a Dream

In the still of night
Heavy eyelids
Sore neck and shoulders

In the darkness
Blurred outlines
Some moving shapes

My nights are full of ghost ships
Sirens songs and far away shores
My dreams are filled with stars hunters
Out-of-the-way rainbows

But I got no control
And sometimes
There is no escaping
Once upon a dream

In the shades of night
Something is coming closer
Draughts along my arm
Shivers down my spine
Droning in my ears
Trouble breathing
Whisperings everywhere
I'm scared
Trouble breathing
Hissings everywhere
I'm scared

Once upon a dream
In the wee small hours
Once upon a dream
In the wee small hours
I'm coming round

Soap Opera

Don't cut me dead
Sit down and look over here.
Don't take me for a ride
Everything leads me to think that time is on our side
Just give the word and I'll take care of you.

I can't bear these lies
Don't make me laugh
You're wasting your breath
Please don't lay the blame on me
It will go wrong in the end
Take time to trust me
Caus' for all that I'm still here, I'm still here, still here…
Time is on our side.

Each in turn we give way to anger
Don't ever again talk to me like that
For heaven's sake,
Just give the word and I'll take care of you.

There are still things to gaze at

Twirl, I twirl as I can.
Try, I try to make me giddy.
Simply, I'm going round in circles
In a place that gets narrow' and narrower.

Hold on and keep down your desire for vanishing
There are still things to gaze at...
Hold on, keep down your longing for transforming
There are still things to try out...

The walls around me go out of shape
I see the wrong side of a picture,
The ground gives way under me
I'm on the brink of blackout.

Twirl, I twirl as I can.
Try, I try to make me giddy.
Simply, I'm going round in circles,
In a place that gets narrow' and narrower

Welcome to the real world (alt. version)

So I moved heaven and earth I left now
I had to ask you who you were
And nowhere I couldn't pick up your trail
I had to track you down
'Cause nothing mattered, nothing mattered
I had to ask you
Who you were

So I moved heaven and earth I left now
I had to ask you who you were
And nowhere I couldn't pick up your trail
I had to track you down
'Cause nothing mattered, nothing mattered
I had to ask you
Who you were

Extravagant, Grotesque & Nonchalant

Psychotropic Mood

I'm not haunted by anything
Anger leads me
raises my senses
Psychotropic Mood
I Play my own scene, in my own act
Guided by my crazy passenger
trapped in the claws of my brain
It is my game : hide and seek
It's a Sneaky playground 
Even Wounded, I can't be weak
It is time to get down
Angels are waiting for me

Extravagant, Grotesque and Nonchalant

Another word, another lie
Always, amazing stories
Another smile, another lie
claimed attractive body
Another word, another lie
Grotesque "cerebral thoughts"
And otherwise, some other lies
I don't want you to teach me how you do that

Someday you'll realise that your
Subtlety is improper
You'll have to face this strange
Irony of fate

But now you take one's leave of me
Proud and disdainful
A crafty smile, derisive
The nonchalant step

Another word, another lie
Extravagant self-gratulation
Another smile, another lie
Respected for the good shape
Another word, another lie
Phoney and sufficient identity

And otherwise, some other lies
I don't need you to teach me how you do that

Astro Girl

Toutes les lumieres du ciel
Brillent autour de mon corps
Enhardit par le souffle froid d'une etoile
Eblouit par la lune en fond
Vertigineuse plongee

Le vent dans les cheveux
Je fonce droit telle une meteorite
Vers un trou noir, une diffuse nebuleuse au loin
je suis une cosmo girl, une Astro Girl

A l'envers, a l'endroit,
Toujours en apesanteur,
Propulsee par une Supernova
Guidee par la voix lactee vers
Une mysterieuse atmosphere

Le vent dans les cheveux
Je fonce droit telle une meteorite
Vers un trou noir, une diffuse nebuleuse au loin
Je suis une cosmo girl, Astro Girl

Disparais-moi

Vous m'imaginez appretee et confiante,
Sûre de pouvoir compter sur mes precieux avantages, vous vous trompez
Insatisfaite et maladroite, timidement mal a l'aise
Submergee de vieilles aventures, mal amorcees
Je sais bien sauter, mais je ne sais pas retomber
Je sais simplement comment me retourner sur mon dos

Disparais moi
Cache moi dans ta poche
Tiens moi chaud
Disparais moi
Que l'on soit enfin seuls !

Déshabillee, devouee pour accomplir certaines fantaisies insoupçonnees
Tu m'as affolee, J'aurais aime te devancer
J'aime entendre les allusions vulgairement deguisees
Privees de romantisme et de poesie
Sagement je me laisse guider doucement je m'evanouis
Et sans courtoisie, en une etincelle, discretement je disparais

Fake girl

Appelez moi Heidi
C'est sûrement moi
Secretement haïe
Pour ma bonne humeur

Enchanteresse

J'essaye chaque jour,
Un nouveau visage

Ou douce demence

Memoire empruntee
Personnages facetieux
Amnesie passagere
Ou douce demence

Fausse fille aux grands yeux cherche un passe trouble
Un vrai mechant, meme laid, pour des gaudrioles

Appelez-moi Candy
Taquine et tendre
Il pleuvine toujours
Partout ou je vais

Je m'appelle Cilia
C'est surement moi
Superbe et maligne
Voleuse ingenieuse

J'essaye chaque jour,
Un nouveau visage
Amnesie ephemere

Personnages facetieux
Amnesie passagere

Pretty Mess

Qui je suis, a vous de voir
Mes souvenirs sont loin
Appelez-moi comme bon vous semble
J'aime votre eloquence
Une fille comme moi s'en sort toujours
C'est comme il vous plaira

Il est temps pour moi de vous saluer, monsieur
Voici les debuts de ma guerison

De qui dois-je me mefier ?
Merci pour ce sourire d'ange

Merci cher psy pour votre temps,
Mon doux desordre s'eloigne

Pretty Mess II

What does it feels like to care about something
I do not have one unembarrassed thoughts
Everything is Illusive
But I've always known this

Where can i revive

Sometimes when you look into the mirror,
The mirror looks back into you
What to expect
Was that too much to expect

Where can i revive

Freaky Frenzy

Seems it's dead outside
Cold dust bought at Drug broker
unbearable fever
I'm addicted to motion

Here come down my throat
Some strange fluxes
Dive in to get to the other side of that door

You're probably somewhere,
Sleeping, Unfaithfully
trying to get rid of yourself
Introspective compassion

Hating Your Guts

I hate your name
I hate your face too
These small manners
And your Liquid languor

I hate your taste
I hate your flavour
Your Clammy hands
And your cauliflower ears

And I think You're so weak
So Vicious and deceitful
Arrogant, always eager to betray

And I can hardly breathe next to
Your fucking pathetic joy of living
You're a goad

Don't hide yourself…
Come on up here
So I can face your fucking cowardice
I can see your shaking, trembling, shivering hands,
Your face, red with embarrassment

Inside I'm quietly but decidedly hating your guts
You are so thick
You're not my friend, so stop pretending !
With Your overzealous helping hands

And you think i should do…
And you think they are…

Ride My Horse

Here and higher
I'm blowing dust and ashes

Talking Too Loud

Allons a la plage cueillir plumes de thon
J'ai trouve des nuages dans mon sofa
J'entends toujours ces pingouins caches dans le four
J'ai installe tous mes tapis au plafond

You are talking too loud

Allons dans le bois pour perdre grand-maman
J'aimerais que vous rongiez la prise electrique
Mes orteils sont tout gratines
Je vais, me pendre au rideau

Hirondelle & Beretta OST

L'enquête

Je suis une hirondelle
Sensuelle et mortelle
Comme un Beretta
Je glisse entre vos doigts

Je cherche quelque chose
Un je ne sais quoi
Une inspiration
Le grand frisson

Je suis une hirondelle
Je me fais la belle
J'ai trop attendu
Vraiment je n'en peux plus
Je suis un Beretta
Intraitable et froid
Sans âme et sans loi
Mais j'ai un coeur qui bat

je cours et je le suis
Je cherche et je fuis
J'aimerai pour une fois
Poser mon Beretta

Je voudrais m'arrêter
Me laisser porter
Ah non, cette fois-là
Il ne m'échappera pas

Non Albums Tracks

Arrogant Doll

What a poor flattering speech
To my sharpened ears
Oooooh Please, Please, Suprise me some more
There's an aftertaste of lust in your eyes

I'm an Arrogant doll
Erratic, Cute and
So Sweet but cranky and unpredictable
Do you still fancy me now that you know me

You came to me with this obnoxious grin on your face
To give a tireless, thoughtless proposal
Oh dear, How dare you talk to me like that

I'm an Arrogant doll
Erratic, Cute and
So Sweet but cranky and unpredictable
An arrogant doll
But Not the doll you whish
Do you still fancy me now that you know me

A Sigh Of Relief

(Acoustic Recording LP)

I don't want to sleep
I'm too scared to harm
I can only disappear
Without even a sigh

I have my demons
I have my fears
But nothing you can fight
So please, get out of my head

I don't feel pain
I wouldn't even feel pleasure,
I'm so close to the floor
I'm Too close to the end

It's coming, sourly
i'm slowly falling asleep,
I am cold
It will go away…

Dream(T) Mutation

(Acoustic Recording LP)

How can i evolve
In this twilight I traverse with a tripping step
I only missed my chance

You'll be careful by tracking down the rain

If you clank my arms
If you wheedle me
Until the room i foray
How can I lay down in a nap

Borrow manners of a well tried person
A liar with so pretty apparences
And all of my thoughts raises, in the mist,
To a dreamt trove in the middle of nowhere

So I trudge myself and my word will pass over in silence
I still have to follow the cliche tropics and behind the rainbow, stay(ing) hidden.
All my heroes are desuets

I dreamt of a meadow where from nothing could escape
I dreamt of a sky where from nothing could come
But I'm sitting in a forest, where everything can happen

Hold of Birds

(Uncolored Past EP)

Well my heart is all grown up now, boy
Wait to see, my heart , how it sounds

Time has come to leave these clammy woods
We can't hear anything in this hole of birds

Your time is done
Won't you please come home

Long Time No See

(Uncolored Past EP)

He's been to the sun, he's been to the moon
He's been looking for somebody's good

Won't you follow me when the clouds are down
On the meadow
Come with me when the grass is brown
Deep and mellow

He's a lonely bird, he's crossing my mind
He is chattering with my animal

Won't you follow me when the clouds are down
On the meadow
Come with me when the grass is brown
Deep and mellow

He's been wandering, he's been locking in
He has been somehow disappointed

Won't you follow me when the clouds are down
On the meadow
Come with me when the grass is brown
Deep and mellow

Magnetic Bounds

(Uncolored Past EP)

I don't now what everyone see
It seems to be a strange reality
As a silent movie

I will stand, walk and reach this light
I will roll, fall in dark holes and crawl
In red magnetic bounces

And I keep grooving in the everlasting space
Scrolling and looping in the space echo
Spinning in spiral in some strange magnetic fields

Pretty Mess

(English version)

Who Am I
You decide…
My memories are gone…
Call me whatever you want
I just like the way you talk

A girl like me, always gets by
Do whatever you want

Time has come for me to say hello
Well ! hello
Here are the Beginnings of my release

I don't know who I shall fear,
Thanks for your Heaven Smile
Thank you dear shrink for your time
This pretty mess is almost gone

Well I'm fine !


Slow Quest And Misery

(Uncolored Past EP)

You are a loon, you are stuck
With your reverberation
You have got no blue
Get down off your rock!

You would have preferred a great great wind
As when people simply turned crazy
Sheltered behind a thick sand's screen

A loon is a nature's whim
Blow down your doline
From now you are fine

You know how you have got to be
But your arms are almost rusty
You would better not sit on your delusional aims

The Drunk And The Bliss

(Uncolored Past EP)

All the way along that night
My mind went around that boy
Pretty little angel eyes
Sparkling in the dawn

He'll miss me
He's gonna see

When I realized that I was all alone
Free from a spell
My hangover was slowly sinking low

He'll miss me
He's gonna see

The Hum and The Hiss

(Uncolored Past EP)

Once more it could have been a heady evening
You could have lost your mind and turned into something
Ballroom is empty and you sink in your bubbly drink
While the last dancers are twirling around

Now you drift along in your fantasy
Cradled by the hum, dazzled by the hiss
You leave this place against your will and wander in
The sleepy town, until it starts again...

Uncolored Past

(Uncolored Past EP)

Should I remember my early try
Some saturated memories
And few blurred sensations
But all have slowly disappeared

An odd feeling, tasteless
Comes through my mind
A few fragments of desire
But always dusty, without sense
Still makes me want to go back

I have laid down my dreams
Stranded my thoughts
Held on my breath
And faded away
In a weird uncolored past
