Thala feat. Bearcubs: Something In The Water

THALA releases her second single Something In The Water, a collaboration with critically acclaimed British artist Bearcubs. The collaboration takes THALA’s dream pop sound to another sphere with the song being about the passage of time for oneself and its consequences. Born and raised in Berlin, THALA began performing music publicly in 2019 as a street musician, at open mic events and within some months was performing as support to some well known international artists, thus drawing the attention of many in the music industry because of her obvious talent. THALA combines a dreamy soundscape with thoughtful lyrics and brings back some retro vibes from the 70s mixed with 80/90s shoegaze and psych, drawing on influences from the likes of Mazzy Star, Beach House, Cigarettes After Sex and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. In the pool of countless newcomers, she finds the strength to stand out by means of outstanding songwriting skills, an angelic voice and a charisma that seems to anticipate her way into the international limelight.

THALA came to the attention of Berlin label Duchess Box Records who were quick and ready to want to work with her releasing her first single Serenade to critical success finding its way on radio stations across Europe, US and as far as Australia. Something In The Water was produced by Jack Ritchie aka Bearcubs and mixed and mastered by Michael K├╝mper with whom THALA has a musical partnership. Bearcubs discovered THALA’s music online and reached out to her via Instagram to do a session together – the two hit it off straight away, as you can hear…

Here’s her thoughts on the song: “Bearcubs and me had met for our first session as artists in April this year, just to see what we could casually create together. Me coming from a more shoegaze and dreamy place, him from a more electronic world combined with indie, I was pretty stoked to work with him. We pretty quickly started talking about our lives and how crazy the passage of time is and how sometimes you notice it straight away and how on other times you do but it takes you a little while or a few experiences longer. We’ve sampled little kids playin inside their blow-up pool out in the courtyard and the subject was pretty much born. I wanted it to be a song that fits every coming of age movie and resonates with being a teenager, becoming an adult and an adult becoming wiser on its way.” – THALA

Thala feat. Bearcubs: Something In The Water Lyrics:
Some day, I think I might get older
Safe to say that it won’t be much longer
The ways are paved in gold but I stumble
So some day, I think I might get older
Had a feeling that there was something in the water
I can’t wrap my head around it
Had a feeling that there was something in the water
I can’t wrap my head around it
Something in the water
Something in the water
Something in the water
Something in the water
No way I ever thought I’d get this far
Safe to say I thought that it would fall apart
Looking back, thinking ’bout my eulogy
Wicked path to my old troubles and friends
Had a feeling that there was something in the water
I can’t wrap my head around it
Had a feeling that there was something in the water
I can’t wrap my head around it
Something in the water
Something in the water
Something in the water
Something in the water
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Had a feeling that there was something in the water
I can’t wrap my head around it
Had a feeling that there was something in the water
