Here is our new music video for the song “Breathe”: I was eight weeks pregnant when I shot it, but didn’t know it yet. On a walk along the canal in Kreuzberg, I had talked about babies with my friend Cash and he casually told me he thought I was already pregnant but I didn’t think much of it. We shot the video D.I.Y. style, in front of a green screen and under hot lights. I kept blaming the hot lights for making me throw up between takes. I reminded myself what the song is about and took nice long breaks to catch my breath again. It took a long time to shoot but it was fun and worth it. After the shoot, Dave took his piled-up hair to visit Cash at the bar he works in. Cash’s words were ringing in my ears after the long day and I dug out a pregnancy test (now I know why they come in packs of two). Lo and behold, I was (am) pregnant!
Such happy and exciting news! However pregnancy is tough and demanding work, so it’s been fun doing the post production for this particular song and reminding myself over and over again and in all situations: breathe!
Bonus Bump Pictures:
We are very happy to release the music video for “It Will Work” AND announce that tickets are on sale via Koka36 for our only Berlin concert and the record release party of our new CD “Stop Talking”, which will take place in Monarch at Kotti, Skalitzer Str. 134, Berlin-Kreuzberg at 9pm on Thursday 11th December. ((( tickets / karten )))
Here is the facebook event for the concert.
Music video for It Will Work:
The video was shot on location by Shai Levy at our music practice space in Tacheles art centre in Berlin-Mitte, shortly before all artists were evicted and it was shut down. The song is a rallying call against neo-liberalism, self help for profit and hyperindividualism. Cooperation and support are present as the alternatives. It Will Work has been a fan favourite at live concerts and we also recorded a live version at RTÉ, the Irish national radio station.
We made a music video for the Berlin band “Respect My Fist” and now you can watch it online!
Here is a short text in German from the band about the song and a link to the song lyrics in both German and English: http://respectmyfist.blogsport.de/2012/11/11/neuer-song-ueber-schleimiges-blut-helle-hosen-und-schlechte-laune/
All together now … BLUUUUUUUT!
I first got to know Respect My Fist during Ruby Tuesday Rock and Hip Hop Camp for Girls*, Trans*- and Inter Youth in 2011. Since then I have seen them play many times and wanted to make a video for one of their catchy, radical songs – one that captures some of their live energy.
If you want to support the band, you can stream, download or buy their record here on bandcamp.
It’s been a minute. We’ve been busy trying to keep our heads above water, but our new EP is finally on it’s way. It can be pre-ordered here.
Record Release Party is in Berlin on Thursday June 19th, at Schokoladen, which is one of the last few islands of alternative culture in the otherwise gentrified Mitte. Please join us for the concert and to celebrate.

In Waterford, the sea breeze was breathed in:
Little Metaller’s Christmas was celebrated in Cork:
Hands were shaken whilst walking around Cork city:
And beautiful baby nephews were played with!
Happy New Year!
We played a concert in Trillke Gut in Hildesheim as part of the aktionstage gesellschaft_macht_identität. That was fun. Then I danced until 4am and did apfel schorle “shots” while Dave got his beauty sleep. Also fun. Then got up the next morning and went for a walk in the forest. Fun…until we got lost in the forest and almost missed the train back! Zoiks! And then arrived back in Berlin to catch a last glimpse of the sun shining so strong. Ahhhh why can’t every weekend be like this!
Here are some shots of Dave just before the concert and us on stage. Check out Dave – he’s all style!

Recently we were privelaged to go there with a friend from Cork City, and make a full sized panorama GIF.
This is a big file, so give it a minute to load:
In other news, we are writing about a dozen new songs at the same time, plus looking for a new microphone for vocals.
See you soon!
