LOKI STARFISH is an electro combo with pop tendencies right out of Paris' alternative scene, in keeping with groups like The Knife, Fad Gadget or Foals. Sophisticated and energetic melodies with Cold Wave tonalities, the group distinguishes itself by its musical persuasions and the multiplicity of its range.

Can you see me
Way in the back here?
I've been waiting
I've been waiting in line.

It's been a long time
Can't get no service
Still I'm hoping
I am hoping for a sign

That one day things will change
And we can finally take our place
That history won't forget us
Or try to minimize our pain

And so I wait
And so I wait

Did you know that
When I get angry
I breathe fire
I could burn this place down?

You may not realize
All of the small ways
I am not welcome
But just take a look around

Still everybody knows
That you need a place to go
And livin' isn't easy
If you incinerate your home

And so I stay
And so I stay

I may seem angry
So please forgive me
But I am still not free
In this society

How long must we keep fighting
For our right to be living?
Wrongs overdue for righting
We're a bit too forgiving

So when you hear them
Make claims of progress
Take a good look
And see who isn't there

We need a seat now
At the table
So please invite us
Or don't pretend to care.
