about

Northern Skin beschreibt die Erscheinung des Mädchens, hinter der sich eine ganze Band verbirgt. Blonde Haare, helle Haut, blaue Augen. Nicht umsonst wird die junge Hamburgerin oft für eine Schwedin gehalten. Jeder Song spiegelt eine besondere Atmosphäre, Weite und Schönheit wider, die durch kleine Motive, einprägende Drum-Grooves und zweistimmigen Gesang zum Ausdruck gebracht werden. Erzählt werden Geschichten aus dem Leben, mal allgemein, mal bis ins kleinste Detail, aber es geht hierbei immer um eins: Persönlichkeit. „Mir ist es wichtig, dass meine Songs etwas erzählen, das mich ausmacht und bewegt. Manchmal sind die Geschichten auch fiktiv, dennoch haben sie immer einen Bezug zu etwas, das ich erlebt, gelesen oder geträumt habe.“
Durch das Jazzstudium in Enschede bzw. Köln können alle Bandmitglieder auf eine gemeinsame musikalische Sprache zurückgreifen und verleihen der Popmusik durch ihre unterschiedlichen musikalischen Backgrounds eine besonders farbreiche Note.
Einflüsse sind u.a.: Regina Spektor, Tori Amos, Björk, Ingrid Michaelson, Anna Ternheim, Feist, Soley, Magnus Öström, Sigur Ros and Fiona Apple.

Track Name: Last Goodbye
I tried it again
and again I'm unsure if you are even o.k. with the situation
I thought you would grow
There is no chance, I can't give you more satisfaction this time

I'm singing here this song
In hopes that you'll find the right way
This is my last goodbye
this is the one that I
hope you won't deny

All you ever did
you listened to the radio while i was lying in the sun talking to you
I should try to love the rain
just cause I, can't give you more satisfaction this time

I'm singing here this song
In hopes that you'll find the right way
This is my last goodbye
this is the one that I
hope you won't deny
Track Name: I Thank You
I thank you now for being there for me
for awaiting me with a cup of tea
I have those dreams in which we are so young
do you remember the songs we sang?

All my problems will be thrown away
when you ask me for a while to stay
I just don't wanna go
and the reason therefore is that I love you so

I thank you now for years of faith in me
for your support although you might not agree
I have those dreams in which we are far away
say, what are your dreams for today?

All my problems will be thrown away
when you ask me for a while to stay
I just don't wanna go
and the reason therefore is that I love you so

I realize now what you tried to say to me
forget this stuff girl and just begin to be
loneliness is not the same as solitude
try to see it as a special interlude

All my problems are thrown away
'cause you asked me for a while to stay
I just don't wanna go
and the reason therefor is that I love you so
Track Name: Song 3
It’s time to change your life
Turn from black into white
Leave all those faults behind
Turn ‘round make it better

Reach out and touch what you need
I can’t tell you what you get
Don’t ask me how to survive
Just let me give you some advise

Make up your mind and say yes
Though you’re an ant in this world – but with finesse
Let the people rail ‘bout your life of success
Don’t be like a thousand others

It’s time to leave that place
Of standing still and hiding behind your face
Take off your dirty shirt
You will feel that you are free and won't get hurt

Reach out and touch what you need
I can’t tell you what get
Don’t ask me how to survive
Just let me give you one advise

Make up your mind and say yes
‘Though you’re an ant in this world – with finesse
Let the people rail ‘bout your life of success
Don’t be like thousand others…
Track Name: After Sunrise
It’s like winter morning when rain is falling
All I can feel is a deeply rooted pain
The room is dark no light I can see
And what’s on my mind I do not agree

It’s like a present you find in a drawer secretly
Nothing saying – just waiting eagerly
Not wondering why weeks are going by
And then finding out that it wasn’t meant for me

After a sunrise it’s the sun who hides
Behind the clouds in the way up high
Don’t spend too much time with things you’re longing for

It’s like a book you read on sunday afternoon
Crying, hoping, feeling
Everything goes the wrong way
So why do you still search for the happy ending
Track Name: Last Day Of Your Life
What would you do if this day would be the last day of your life?
How would you feel if you go this way the last time by my side?
Let me know if you would think of the paradise in this night.

Oh what a beautiful day this would be
Oh what a beautiful night you would have with me

Let us pretend that we’re lookin’ for
To the stranger who knock on our door
Let us pretend that we’re lookin’ for
That we just want some more

What I would do if this day would be the last day of my life?
Give me some music, some dark chocolate and spend with me all the time
Just create for me a great green paradise in this night

Oh what a beautiful day this would be
Oh what a beautiful night you would have with me

Let us pretend that we’re lookin’ for
The stranger who knock on our door
Let us pretend that we’re lookin’ for
We don't need this anymore
Track Name: The Past
I look into the past
Where everything happened fast
And I realize that it’s gone

I met you at the lights
Affection at first sight
Now I feel that you’ve gone

All things must pass


I look into the past
Where everything happened fast
And I realize that it’s gone

I split up with you
On a Sunday afternoon
Nothing ever was enough for you

All things must pass

Look at the tree
The bird is singing his song
Listen to what he’s saying
You’ve done nothing wrong
Track Name: Where Are You Now
I thought you were my man
who let me live my life
like a child
who doesn't care 'bout the future yet
so where are you now,
say where are you now?

I thought you were my shepherd
for the darkest night
it will be all right
felicity is what you meant for me
so where are you now,
say where are you now?

Tell me the way I should be
to make you smile and to make you happy
