Product Description

Singer-songwriter Hafdís Huld was born in Reykjavik, Iceland and now divides her time between the UK and Iceland. From the age of 15 she sang and toured the world with iconic Icelandic collective Gus Gus. When they weren’t touring, Hafdis took time out to star in several Icelandic films.

Synchronised Swimmers is the second album from Hafdís Huld. It contains two Icelandic number one hits – Kónguló, which means spider in Icelandic and is about urban climber Alain Robert, and the title track, Synchronised Swimmers. The album finds that special place just left of center in the sphere of deliciously melodic and witty pop. The mood is playful and the touch is light on songs that sound like they were recorded with all participants sporting an ear-to-ear grin.

    • Lyrics

      I think he lives across the hall
      And I don't know him at all
      But I have a plan
      In it he's the action man

      He shifts across the street
      I can't see his feet
      He can save me anytime
      From this little life of mine

      I'm wishing, I'm wishing, I'm wishing
      Away by my window every day
      While he's on a mission
      For a damsel in distress I'm almost
      Happy and I guess
      I can live without the action man

      He will rocket and sky dive
      In order to survive
      Catch him if you can
      He's the action man

      Never needs a second chance
      Brave with big strong hands
      Makes everything okay
      Always knows just what to say, what to say

      I'm wishing, I'm wishing, I'm wishing
      Away by my window every day

      While he's on a mission
      For a damsel in distress I'm almost
      Happy and I guess
      I can live without the action man

      We'll have a moment in slow motion
      And I replay in my head all the clever
      Things I could have said

      Wishing, I'm wishing, I'm wishing away
      By my window every day
      While he's on a mission
      For a damsel in distress I'm almost
      Happy and I guess
      I can live without

      Wishing, I'm wishing, I'm wishing away
      By my window every day
      While he's on a mission
      For a damsel in distress I'm almost
      Happy and I guess
      I can live without my action man

      Live without my action man
      Live without my action man
      Action man

    • Lyrics

      Over noodles from yesterday
      I'm attempting some kind of a talk
      Not that it matters anyway
      It's a lonely road you walk
      Life size cut-out in the living room
      Of a woman that should be cold
      I think it's safe for me to assume
      That you need to be told

      Not sure what I'm doing here
      But you're my oldest friend
      Things were so much easier at school
      This grown up world is tricky
      I'm holding out my hand
      It's unwritten but it's the rule

      The green clock on the table
      Tells me you should be dressed by now
      You might feel slightly unable
      But you'll get back up somehow
      Were it the other way around
      I know you'd sit in the dark with me
      Until the courage could be found
      To get on with plan B

      Not sure what I'm doing here
      But you're my oldest friend
      Things were so much easier at school
      This grown up world is tricky
      I'm holding out my hand
      It's unwritten but it's the rule

      There's a storm in the cup of coffee
      I'm about to drink
      In it you are treading water
      Trying not to sink

      Not sure what I'm doing here
      But you're my oldest friend
      Things were so much easier at school
      This grown up world is tricky
      I'm holding out my hand
      It's unwritten but it's the rule
      It's unwritten but it's the rule

    • Lyrics

      It was a swing from a cable
      That sat by the tabourn EK
      Suffer you for your even way

      This could style and still betide the police
      Just wait he'll come down on one heath
      He's lucky poor that's the risk I note
      Feeling almost tight as butterflies shows

      They call him kongulo
      You never see him in an elevator
      It's most too slow
      See you later, see you later
      Let's hope the winds don't blow
      Watch out
      Here comes the kongulo

      Afraid of hides when it comes to flights of sex
      But when it starts to move
      Nobody gets
      No safety-line he takes his time out-there
      Stops for coffee
      And rests the first years there
      The side before there is a risk I know
      Feeling almost tight as butterflies shows

      They call him kongulo
      You never see him in an elevator
      It's most too slow

      See you later, see you later
      Please don't make it snow
      Watch out
      Here comes the kongulo

      It made us so even keener
      When he hits the the right
      With the window cleaner
      Human kongulo say yeah
      Now it's on tv who took him about his hand

      They call him kongulo
      You never see him in an elevator
      It's most too slow
      See you later, yeah see you later
      Let's hope the winds don't blow
      Watch out
      Here comes the kongulo
      La-la la-la la-la la-la-la
      Watch out
      Here comes the kongulo
      La-la la-la la-la la-la-la
      Watch out
      Here comes the kongulo
      La-la la-la la-la la-la la-la la-la la-la la-la a-la la-la la-la la-la la-la-la

    • Lyrics

      When you're angry
      And you're walking away
      Waiting for them to stop you
      But they don't

      Then it's ok
      To wait for a while
      Before you go back there again
      With a smile
      It's just one of those things
      I wish someone had told me

      If you're hurting
      Needing a tear
      That is the time when they just don't
      Seem to fall

      It gets better
      You give up the wait
      And they come streaming down your face
      When it's too late
      It's just one of those things
      I wish someone had told me

      If I had the answers to all my questions
      There wouldn't be anywhere to go from here
      If I had the answers to all my questions

      There wouldn't be anywhere
      There wouldn't be anywhere
      To go from here

      When you're happy
      And you just don't know why
      Don't waste precious time
      Don't even try

      If you're dancing
      And nobody's there
      Enjoy the fact that you don't
      Even care

      It's just one of those things
      I wish someone had told me

      If I had the answers to all my questions
      There wouldn't be anywhere
      There wouldn't be anywhere
      There wouldn't be anywhere
      To go from here

      It's just one of those things
      I wish someone had told me

      Nothing makes sense in the mornings anyway
      So feelings are back in demand from today
      Close my eyes and hope for a better one
      'Cause life goes on

      Boys and perfume from a pound store
      Cheap Mona Lisa print on the wall
      And I feel like the girl who's got it all
      I feel like the girl who's got it all, got it all

      Misery feels so out of place
      Moment's happiness staring you in the face
      Can't find love, then lust will do
      I'm playing with you, I'm playing

      Boys and perfume from a pound store
      Cheap Mona Lisa print on the wall

      And I feel like the girl who's got it all
      I feel like the girl who's got it all

      Nothing like my boy needs to be
      It all happened so soon
      They can't tell me what works for me
      Let's have Christmas in June
      Christmas in June

      Boys and perfume from a pound store
      Cheap Mona Lisa print on the wall
      And I feel like the girl who's got it all
      I feel like the girl who's got it all
      I feel like, I feel like I've got it all

      Like synchronised swimmers
      In an ocean of sounds
      We're only beginners
      Still looking around
      It's a little bit deafening
      How my inner voice is shouting out

      What a lovely mess
      Through the days we walk
      There's liberating loneliness
      In how you never talk
      It's a little bit deafening
      How my inner voice is shouting out

      They'll come around
      Just leave you be
      Feet firmly on the ground
      When you're standing next to me
      Feet firmly on the ground
      When you're standing next to me

      Maybe we're different
      Different from who
      They so wanna tell us
      When they thing we should do

      It's a little bit deafening
      How my inner voice is shouting out

      They'll come around
      Just leave you be
      Feet firmly on the ground
      When you're standing next to me
      Feet firmly on the ground
      When you're standing next to me
      Shouting out

      It's a little bit deafening
      When my inner voice is shouting out
      It's a little bit deafening
      It's a little bit deafening
      It's a little bit deafening
      When my inner voice is shouting out

      Shouting out
      We're synchronised swimmers
      Shouting out

      I don't want to smile
      You can't make me
      I've been dumped for a girl called Daisy
      And it hurts
      I picture her eating apples
      All glowing happy and healthy
      Girl next door

      My blue bikini's faded
      And I don't even care
      I think she's over rated
      With really stupid hair

      I think the sun is wasted on me
      I think the sun is wasted on me
      I've taken a vow of misery
      That's why the sun is wasted on me

      I wear my purple dress
      And walk like I mean business and I do

      She sounds like a greeting card phrase
      Little Miss Daisy at the door

      Not the best beginning for my fantasy catfight
      I've painted on a smile
      But I'll be back tomorrow night

      I think the sun is wasted on me
      I think the sun is wasted on me
      I've taken a vow of misery
      That's why the sun is wasted on me

      I think the sun is shining on me
      I think the sun is shining on me
      I've broken the vow of misery
      That's why the sun is shining on me
      Shining on me, shining

      Orange car people sit in trees
      Hard to digest all the memories
      Fell off a bike the blood still fresh
      Focus on saving my party dress

      I'm in bed it's after dark
      Still hear them playing in the park
      Run around and laugh out loud
      That is it I'm sneaking out

      Waiting for things to run around
      Summer should have a different sound
      Sad situations too much of a wait
      The time of my life is starting late

      With mum in the early morning rush
      People watching the on the bus
      Day after day always the same
      And they don't even know my name

      Waiting for the things to run around
      Summer should have a different sound
      Sad situations too much of a wait
      The time of my life is starting late

      Dreams of impossible happiness
      Sugar coated truth
      I need to wake up
      And shake off my youth

      The time of my life is starting late
      The time of my life is starting late
      The time of my life is starting late
      The time of my life is starting late

      A girl in a nylon apron serves me cinnamon toast
      On a plate with a picture of a cat
      The man on the next table pretends to read the paper
      We all know he's asleep under his hat

      Look out on the street
      And I see a lady feeding birds too fat to fly

      Everything is basic in a town like this
      You get your picture in the paper if you catch a fish
      Dwelling on if onlys on a rainy day
      Just like Dolly I will get away

      Goodbye to homemade lemonade

      The girl with the apron talks way too loud on the phone
      About a boy she wants to snog
      They still have that sign up
      But someone has decided that
      Patch doesn't count as a dog

      Look out on the street
      And I see a lady feeding birds too fat to fly

      Everything is basic in a town like this
      You get your picture in the paper if you catch a fish
      Dwelling on if onlys on a rainy day
      Just like Dolly I will get away

      Goodbye to homemade lemonade

      Everything is basic in a town like this
      You get your picture in the paper if you catch a fish

      Flying high as a kite
      With proper starts there in the night
      Just when she's starting to shine
      Gets tangled on a power line

      From looking at her face
      She's the nicest person in this place
      They clearly don't know
      She's putting on a little snow

      And she tries so hard to prove
      She's got nothing to prove
      Every little fall is a signature move
      She's made a deal with the devil
      You can't take those back
      She will always be
      The prettiest insomniac around here

      I almost know a criminal

      Pushes them out of her head
      Thoughts when she's alone in bed
      She'll get away with it
      Looks nothing like her photo fit

      And she tries so hard to prove

      She's got nothing to prove
      Every little fall is a signature move
      She's made a deal with the devil
      You can't take those back
      She will always be
      The prettiest insomniac around here

      Fear eats my sanity
      I say I like her dress
      This time she doesn't shout at me
      We must be making progress

      Tries so hard to prove
      She's got nothing to prove
      Every little fall is a signature move
      She's made a deal with the devil
      You can't take those back
      She will always be
      The prettiest insomniac around here

      I almost know a criminal
      I almost know a criminal
      I almost know a criminal

      I'm gonna build a robot and I'll name it after you
      I've got everything I need
      Using nuts and bolts and just a little bit of glue
      And some tin foil on his feet

      We'll go for walks
      And feed the ducks with bread
      He scares them off
      With the lasers on his head
      Remote control
      Needs no compromise
      The look of love
      In this bright red eyes

      I'm gonna build a robot and I'll name it after you
      I've got everything I need

      Using nuts and bolts and just a little bit of glue
      And some tin foil on his feet

      He doesn't breathe
      And never needs to sleep
      His hardware heart
      Never skips a beat

      I'm gonna build a robot and I'll name it after you
      I've got everything I need

      We live in a house with a blue door
      When we're going out, they're coming home
      And if sometimes all day, the curtains are drawn
      It's just that we'd rather be left alone

      They think we're vampires
      That could be cool
      But we're not vampires

      We're just me and you
      Here in the dark
      Me and you and our little spark
      They think we're vampires

      I see your seasonal sadness setting in
      So much unsaid

      Somehow it hurts to be happy
      In your head

      Learn to let it go

      I tell you things will better
      Just wait and see

      You shake your head in disbelief
      And whisper not for me

      Learn to let it go
      Learn to let it go

      As the days become longer
      Glimpse of winter sun
      I see you smile
      Spring has begun

      Learn to let it go
      Learn to let it go
      Learn to let it go
      Let it go
      Let it go
      Let it go
