about

Formed by guitarist Maciek Ofstad of Norwegian metal-kings Kvelertak and Norway’s self-proclaimed “country prince” and two time Norwegian Grammy winner Bendik Brænne, The Needs come fully equipped with the necessary musical chops. Also on board, and an integral part of the songwriting is Brænne’s older brother and formerly acclaimed scientist Mattis. Keeping it all together, the rhythm section consists of drummer Nils Jørgen Nilsen, who has spent the last 10 years setting stages on fire with Honningbarna and diving for backline in shallow and cold Norwegian waters, and running man Knut-Oscar Nymo of Rakkestad punkers Oslo Ess.

Track Name: Summerbore
Remember how we tried
Remember you and I
I wasn’t feeling sure
We’d beat the summerbore

Remember how we’d hide
Down at the top of the line
I didn’t know for sure
We’d shake the summerbore

You can say that I’m your goon
You can say that I’m your fool

But no one ever told you about that day
No one ever told you about betrayal
No ever told you that it’s true
All the things that made you stay

Remember how we dreamed
How easy it all seemed
I wasn’t feeling sure
We’d beat the summerbore

Remember all the lies
The things we had to hide
I didn’t know for sure
We’d shake the summerbore

You can say that I’m your goon
You can say that I’m your fool

But no one ever told you about that day
No one ever told you about betrayal
No ever told you that it’s true
All the things that made you stay
Track Name: I Regret It
All I wanted was a day without a curfew
I need to get away from you and every virtue
Sometimes I feel like I’ve been drifting through everyday

All I wanted was a day away from high school
I need to get away from you and every class rule
Sometimes I feel like I’m restricting myself everyday

Shouldn’t have said it
Now I regret it
Though I meant it
Was nothing to it
I wish I’d read it
but I forgot it

You used to call me up and ask if we should hang out
We used to drink at Park until one of us passed out
But now I’m drinking my beer alone

Shouldn’t have said it
Now I regret it
Although you know it
What’s wrong about it

And though I meant it
Was nothing to it
I wish I read it
But I forgot it


All I wanted was a day without a curfew
I need to get away from you and every virtue
Sometimes I feel like I’ve been drifting through everyday
Track Name: I'm Doing Fine
One day I’ll be mountain climbing
One day I’ll be right up there
Leaving all the noise behind me
Breathing in that mountain air

One day I’ll forget the feeling
One day I’ll forget the truth
Even though you don’t believe me
I promise you I’ll write
That honey I’m doing fine

Someday I will start all over
Someday I’ll be moving on
Leaving what I don’t think matters
Someday this guy is left and gone

Someday I’ll forget the flowers
Someday I’ll forget that kiss
Someday I will write that letter
It’s been a long long time
And honey I’m doing fine

Someday I’ll forget the flowers
Someday I’ll forget that kiss
Someday I will write that letter
I’m through with you, I’m through with this
Someday I will start all over
Someday I’ll be moving on
But first I got to tell you baby
It’s been a long long time
And honey I’m doing fine
Track Name: Hey Wake Up
Hey wake up
Your eyes are so pretty
Hey let’s go
Out to the city

You know I need an opinion
I need that recreation

Ruby isn’t answering
Ruby doesn’t wanna hear you sing

Hey old friend
Don’t feel down
I’ll take you to the
Best dog walk in town

If I could ask your opinion
I need some confirmation

Ruby came from Sunset Valley
But they took her far away
I met her in a midtown store
We went out out into the rain

Hey wake up
Your eyes are so pretty
Hey let’s go
Out to the city

You know I need an opinion
I need that recreation

Ruby isn’t answering
Ruby doesn’t wanna hear you sing
Ruby isn’t answering
Track Name: She'll Never Know
”Jump in the car everyone’s gonna be there”
I don’t stand a chance every time that I see her
She says ”I hope it’s not cold” while we’re diving on in
She’s wearing her life on the out of her skin

Oh oh she’ll never know
What I really know
I love her so

All the boys knew that Julys greatest prize
Was the sound of her voice and the look in her eyes
Radio playing her favorite track
She’s singing along to the sound of the ‘Mac

Oh oh she’ll never know
What I really know
I love her so
Oh oh she’ll never know
How much I really know
I love her so
I love her so
I love her so
l love her so
I love her so
I love her so
I love her so
Track Name: Do You Think
Do you think, think you can tell?
When a fortune comes, it leaves the hands of someone else
She could leave without you, she could be the one
I still love you more than you ever dreamed of

Do you think, think you would know?
If you love someone, if she’s right or wrong
She could leave without you, she could be the one
She still loves you more than you ever dreamed of

I got dreams about you
Dreams I didn’t think could come true
But they do, they do

I got dreams about you
Dreams I didn’t think could come true
I got dreams about you
Dreams I didn’t think could come true
Track Name: I Believe in Sunday / Someday
Hey hey, I tell you what
I believe in Sunday
What do you say about 2 o'clock
I believe in Sunday
What will you do when you hear me ring?
Will you be answering that I believe in Sunday

Hey hey, what should we do?
Do you believe in Sunday
We’ll be together all night through
Do you believe in Sunday
What will you say when you hear me sing
Will you be laughing that I
Believe in Sunday

Sunday I’m gonna go to bed
Sunday I’ll listen to what you said
Sunday I’m gonna be a man
And that’s easy

Sunday I’m gonna get a job
Sunday I’m gonna call you back
Sunday I’m gonna pay my rent
And thats easy

Sunday I went out for a drink
Someday maybe I’ll start to think
But this day is not that day at all
It’s not easy

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday too
It’s Friday what am I supposed to do
When Sunday comes I’ll start anew
It’s gonna be easy

That’s easy
Track Name: Stay at Home Friend
I could never fully describe you in a song
So I’m not gonna try
Everyday you find a new rock’n roll boy
I don’t ask you why

Ohh
Early morning kisses without regrets
Ohh
You should have seen your mother, it would be better then

You were still awake when I left for school
So I’m not gonna try
I could hear you laughing in your room
I don’t ask you why

Early morning kisses without pretend
You should have seen your mother, it would be better then

First to go
Last to leave my mind
First to go
Last to leave my mind

I could never fully describe you in a song
So I’m not gonna try
Everyday you find a new rock’n roll boy
I don’t ask you why
Track Name: Revisited
All I really wanted was a stay at home friend
Not one that turns out to be outgoing
I don’t really care if we stay home till the end
Nothing would have satisfied me more

Cause I ain’t got that smart job
I ain’t got that hair
I ain’t got those shoes no
And I ain’t got that flair

All i really wanted was a knock on my door
Don’t tell me that I’m all domesticated
I don’t wanna go down to the pub anymore
They say that I am old and introverted
Cause I ain’t got that smart job
I ain’t got that hair
I ain’t got those shoes no
And I ain’t got that flair

I want a stay at home friend baby
I want a stay at home friend tonight
I want a stay at home friend baby
I want a stay at home friend tonight

I aint got that smart job
I aint got that hair
I aint got those shoes no
And I aint got that flair
