about

Miss Stereochemistry returns with a collection of travel memories – Harlequin EP relays stories that have unfolded between Barcelona, Istanbul, Belgrade, Berlin, marking Karla’s life path with their own road signs.

The four songs - the four chapters of the story are united by a common thread: a reminder that the borders between people, cultures, religions, even between the birth, the life and death are there only if we choose to see them. It is a reminder to notch down the prejudices and train the eyes to read between the lines, let the hearts soar beneath the surface.

The ex-lab geek did not shy from crossing borders of musical genres either: Harlequin EP is a curious blend of electro-folk swing, honoring both Karla’s Balkan roots and Berlin’s own Deutsche Neue Welle of the ‘80s.

Track Name: Harlequin
i met a man from a far of land
across eleven thousand seas
while we wandered yes i wondered 
what the heck he'll do with me
he lent a hand and said: 
"surrender to this crazy dance"
i smiled and let him lead 
this funny circumstance

i wandered i wonder i won
what has just... what has just begun

pa pa pa pa parapam parabarapapa papapiri
pa pa pa pa parapam are you dream or are you real
pa pa pa pa parapam parabarapapa papapiri
pa pa pa pa parapam take your dreams and make them real


one of a kind, she's a harlequin upon my strings
positive vibe she bears inside contages everything
will you dance for me little girl with music in your hands
take me take me take me fly me to your magic lands

I say well boy boy boy boy.. come on.. 
boy boy boy boy.. turn the fire on

pa pa pa pa parapam parabarapapa papapiri
pa pa pa pa parapam are you dream or are you real
pa pa pa pa parapam parabarapapa papapiri
pa pa pa pa parapam take your dreams and make them

real real real la la la la
la la la la la la la love

 
and we dream free in the city by the sea
we live free in the city by the sea
we play free in the city by the sea
we love free around the world tonight...
Track Name: Echo Love (Radio Version)
love.. an echo ringing clear
grasping only memory of you
this empty room took

love.. lingers like you didn't
with the same strength
like the ease with which you've left
stained red my hands for good, my hands for good
and i'm amazed... i'm amazed

   i'm amazed i'm amazed how life goes on anyway
   i'm amazed that i can say i'll just live along today
   i'm amazed i'm amazed how life just drags us on every day
despite the pain, this built-in urge that keeps us breathing anyway
   i will always miss you dear

heartbeat getting weaker
sounds with time fade
I hope they won't come back to haunt me

but as they die..
unbearable the silence grows
crawls beneath my walls and doors
eyes run dry left with no air
a heart's mute cry wish you were here, but
.. no one to hold on to, no one to hold
no one to hold on to and i'm amazed.. i'm amazed

i'm amazed i'm amazed how life goes on anyway
   i'm amazed i can say i'll just live along today
   i'm amazed i'm amazed how life drags us on anyway
   despite the the pain this built in urge that keeps us breathing/breeding anyway

if you'd only lingered like the memory lingered like this memory
lingered like this memory of having you inside of me..
..maybe today i wouldn't be so alone
baby today, i know that i'm not alone
baby today, i know that we're not alone
for sure, today, i wouldn't be here
Track Name: Shut Up and Fuck Me (Radio Version)
i met a man on a gig i had last night
took him home and everything
seem to work out right

but then next morn
instead of simply heading south
he had to open his mouth
and i wanted to scream and shout

shut up and fuck me please oh,
shut up and fuck me
shut up and fuck me please
i don't care if u haven't brushed your teeth
oh i don't care if u haven't brushed your teeth

i guess that boy
he just didn't realize
he had to try and be so wise
oh, girl don't you fall in love with meeee

and i thought
who ever mentioned love
i just wanted you above
doing that thing to me, but … (doing that little thing)

oh, ego and panic struck again
how could i not fall in love with such man???
i thought the truth shone here so bright
if i wanted your ring i wouldn't fuck u the first night..

…(so relax you're safe here, just…)

shut up and fuck me
shut up and fuck me please
i don't care if u haven't brushed your teeth
oh i don't care if u haven't brushed your teeth

there is no white dress stress with me,
you can relax you're safe in here just
shut up and fuck me please, oh
shut up & fuck me..
shut up and fuck me
shut up and fuck me… please!
Track Name: Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana Cover
Load up on guns, bring your friends
It's fun to lose and to pretend
She's over bored and self assured
Oh no, I know a dirty word

Hello, hello, hello, how low? [x3]
Hello, hello, hello!

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto
An albino
A mosquito
My libido
Yeah, hey, yay

I'm worse at what I do best
And for this gift I feel blessed
Our little group has always been
And always will until the end

Hello, hello, hello, how low? [x3]
Hello, hello, hello!

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto
An albino
A mosquito
My libido
Yeah, hey, yay

And I forget just why I taste
Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile
I found it hard, it's hard to find
Oh well, whatever, never mind

Hello, hello, hello, how low? [x3]
Hello, hello, hello!

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto
An albino
A mosquito
My libido

A denial! [x9]
