about

The Qualia New York

The music of New York-based trio The Qualia speaks to the heart as much as to the head. Reflecting the passionate and analytical personalities of Lars Casteen, Chvad SB and Rossen Nedelchev, the group’s music combines a wry humor and dancefloor sensibility with lyrical depth and jangle to create their own brand of modern new wave music. ... more

Track Name: Volcanoe (Medusa Session)
(ooh aah ooh aah)
I want to sacrifice myself to the volcano.
I want to see just how far down the fucker goes.
Throw away the burning reservations –
I might not get them back, but I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care.

(ooh aah ooh aah)
I want to kill and eat everything in the caldera.
I want to stick the vitamins to my lucky bones.
Every little salted, white crustacean –
they might not hold me up, but I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care.

And I won’t bring a rope to help my climb back.
I won’t bring a radio.
If anything waits across the gap
you’ll never know…

(ooh aah ooh aah)
I want to hammer through the rock of every chamber.
I want to drown in the ensuing lava flow.
Maybe it will “bring me new perspective,”
but even if it won’t I don’t care, I don’t care, look, I don’t care.
Track Name: Out For Blood (Medusa Session)
So, we’re out for blood on Sunday night,
Hunter Stone and I.
That machine gun’s in his heart.
He’s lucky it still starts,
and he’s got no time to be polite.

And he says,
“If I’m gonna die here in this town,
I’m going to enjoy myself
until it kills me.”
So we get drunk,
and we get fucked up,
throw a brick at his grandpa’s car,
slip the clutch and knock the front door down.

So, we’re out for blood at the sunrise,
much to my surprise.
Our khaki blazers creased,
Hunter’s out for more release,
a chance to leave without goodbyes.

And he says,
“If I’m gonna die here in this town,
I’m going to enjoy myself
until it kills me.”
So we get drunk,
and we get fucked up,
throw a brick at his grandpa’s car,
walk it back across the yard,
light the gas with a cigar,
and slip the clutch and knock the back door down.

“Until it kills me,
Until it kills me.”
Track Name: They Catch Up (Medusa Session)
So you stripped off your birthright and fashion,
left your oldest friends behind.
You crawled out your daddy’s swimming pool,
you didn’t know what you would find.
So, is it what you wanted it to be,
on your own,
like a common escapee?

And now the faces you once considered friendly,
they hunt you through the woods,
a full tank of gas in their parents’ Cadillacs.
Your chances down look so good,
because they won’t stop,
won’t ever stop,
until they’ve got your blood.
They’re revving up those engines patiently.

Hey hey, hey hey, whatcha gonna do when they catch up to you?
Track Name: Captain of Industry (Medusa Session)
You show up late when it happens, looking for a ledge and eyes to watch you.
One last poem from the napkin, for your teary guests below,
but I’m not crying.

You’re still a fifteen-year-old industry captain.
You still cash the same old checks, and I’m not bought.

A few cheap months follow, then it’s new stories and the clothes to prove them.
It’s all too much to swallow, but I let you explain as you close your eyes.

To me you’re still a fifteen-year-old industry captain.
You still cash the same old checks, and I’m not bought.

On the phone you’re angry.
You say I’ve wandered away from where we dropped it.
You claim the years have changed me;
I’m the company I keep, and you “don’t know why.”

Because you’re still a fifteen-year-old industry captain.
You still cash the same old checks, and I’m not bought.
Track Name: Don't Change (Medusa Session)
I'm standing here on the ground
The sky above won't fall down
See no evil in all direction
Resolution of happiness
Things have been dark
For too long

Don't change for you
Don't change a thing for me

I found a love I had lost
It was gone for too long
Hear no evil in all directions
Execution of bitterness
Message received loud and clear

Don't change for you
Don't change a thing for me

I'm standing here on the ground
The sky above won't fall down
See no evil in all directions
Resolution of happiness
Things have been dark for too long

Don't change for you
Don't change a thing for me
