about

Dan Treacy is back and he’s here to stay, as we can see by his intense musical activity in these last years. And here at Elefant we’re celebrating it with a new single that’s really a gift for our label. This limited edition vinyl can be seen as an unintentional ode to the nerd spirit, or an unforeseen tribute to the freak soul, from the perspective of a freethinking, spontaneous, rock n’ roll spirit that is the mind behind our beloved TV PERSONALITIES. So, the title track “People Think That We Are Strange” is an elusive call to flee from judgments (and prejudices), to let people express themselves and be themselves, just as they are and just as our protagonists do on this short and playful single of charming psychedelic pop, falling somewhere between the MODERN LOVERS of Jonathan Richman and the unpredictable craziness of PAVEMENT. The single is completed with the B side “A Glimpse of My Genius”, a hilarious improvisation that evokes a pop-punk drunk VELVET UNDERGROUND full of spontaneity, and even a wink to Lilly Allen! To reveal any more details would ruin the best surprise. Sink into the EP’s incredible lyrics as you let yourself float along with the galloping, unself-conscious riffs in an exercise that must be done at home, or in the bar, or lying in the grass… but always with the record player. Then who’ll say we’re strange?! Vinyl freaks of the world – Unite!

Track Name: People Think That We're Strange
Fly me to the moon and take me up upon the stars
Let me know what's going on on Jupiter and Mars

People think that we're strange
Stranger than the others
People think that we're strange
Lying in the flowers
People think that we're strange

People think that we're strange
As if we never knew it
People say that we're strange
As if we never knew it
People think that we're strange

People think that we're strange
Lying in the green grass
People think that we're strange
Because we like to climb trees
People think that we're strange

People think that we're strange
Lying in the green grass
Lying at the blue sky
End of all our rainbows
People think that we're strange

And there's an ambulance on it's way
With my initials on its' licence plate

People think that we're strange
Track Name: A Glimpse Of My Genius
She read about me on the TVP's Yahoo group
Oh my god! What did I do before email?
I wrote letters

Hey Dan, tell me your real age
I said, baby...I'm timeless
I used to hang around with Cleopatra and Napoleon
And...get this..Noel Gallagher...yeah, I'm that old!

Then she says, do you think I'm pretty?
Oh yes, my darling, you are pretty

Now, I don't suppose you've heard of Jonathan Richman
Oh yes, I love him!
Well, they all say that don't they babe
Oh, I didn't mean to call you babe!
Oh my god, I'm..ohh! What do I do?
I call ladies babes, darlings, sweethearts...what do you call them?
I know what I call ladies
My father's advice
Don't call them back early!

I'm doing an interview today for some girl who's a little bit abused
Tells me she writes for some monthly magazine called Dazed and Confused..
Yeah, that's me!

If you could read my mind
When there's no more love to go
And there's no more love to show
And it's true
Can you read my mind?

I said girl, got no idea where you come from
But you look like some adonis
Like some kind of female venus
And do you know what she said to me?
