ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
[English Text follows Swedish below:]

Det är en sällsynt händelse när ett amerikanskt rock'n roll-band beslutar sig för att göra en inspelning på ett annat språk än engelska. The Beavers spelar "Helios omger oss", baserad på "Helios Encircle Us", en tidigare produktion av Craig O'Manion. (Se texterna nedan.) Efter kontakt med en svensk textförfattare, Lotta Ring, släpps "Helios omger oss" som svensk version i november 2009. Gruppen The Beavers har alltid varit öppen för andra kulturer och nya idéer. Sångaren Craig O'Manion studerar nordiska språk i allmänhet, och det svenska språket i synnerhet.

Craig O'Manion säger: "Detta är något jag alltid har velat göra - att skriva en låt på svenska. Lotta och jag har samarbetat kring texten, och jag är väldigt nöjd med slutresultatet, men att sjunga på svenska är helt annorlunda mot att sjunga på engelska. Min amerikanska accent märks tydligt."

Låten har en intressant musikalisk uppbyggnad. Elbasisten Loren Haefer spelar fyra tromboner, inklusive bastrombon. För den som är intresserad av ljudbilder - en av elgitarrerna har fått förvrängning via en gammal bandspelare som fungerar som förförstärkare.



(Helios var solens gud enligt den grekiska mytologin. Läs mer på: http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helios)

It is a rare and unique event when a rock-n-roll band decides to create a recording in a language other than english.

The Beavers bring you "Helios omger oss", based on the song "Helios Encircle Us",[see lyrics and translation below] a song O'Manion wrote a few years ago.

In collaboration with a Swedish lyricist, Lotta Ring, the song is only being released in Swedish.

The Beavers are an american group that have always been open to other cultures and new ideas. The group's singer Craig O'Manion is also a rather serious student of the Swedish language and scandinavian languages in general.

Says Craig O'Manion, "This is something I have always wanted to do. Lotta had a strong impact on the lyrics. She was more than a translator. This has become her song also. It gave me great satisfaction although it was completely different than singing in English. And yes, I am certain that I have an American accent [singing in Swedish]."

Musically the song has interesting texture. Electric Bassist Loren Haefer plays four trombones including bass trombone.
For guitar players interested in how some of the tones were created, one of the electric guitars was distored using a very old tape recorder as a pre-amp.

Bilden han målar är grön och vit
Smaragdens skönhet i nordiskt ljus
Vi kan alla samarbeta
[The picture he paints is green and white]
[Emerald beauty in nordic light]
[We all can work together]

Skumma mystiker som kröner kvällen
Detta är hur kriget är
ett krig som kan ändra vädret
[Shady mystic crowns the night]
[That is how war is]
[a war that can change the weather]


Helios omger oss
Han omsluter oss
i ett hav av solar
[Helios encircle us]
[He encloses us]
[in a sea of suns]

Helios omger oss
i ett hav av solar
[Helios encircle us]
[in a sea of suns]


Det brinner i himlen
vi har vår egen eld, din och min
Våra sinnen brinner
[It is burning in the sky]
[We have our own fire, you and I]
[Our minds burn]

Vi har regnbågar av glädje
vi har alla färger runt
vi har visioner och dagdrömmar
[We have rainsbows to delight in]
[We have colors all around]
[We have visions and daydreams]

Helios omger oss
Han omsluter oss
i ett hav av solar
[Helios encircle us]
[He encloses us]
[in a sea of suns]

Helios omger oss
i ett hav av solar
[Helios encircle us]
[in a sea of suns]
