about

17f Vevey, Switzerland

17f is a quartet who plays Americana folk music. Led by a delicate instrumentation where power is not calculated in decibels. The band created a strong identity on stage, used to play in tight places, they took advantage of these places to build their sound.
Heavily influenced by Neil Young or Pink Floyd, 17f transports you into a cinematic world.

Track Name: Asshole
it's rubbish...
there are plenty of ways
to spread epic stories
about some famous assholes,
who climbed tall mountains.

As you said once: "It's the obvious"
"A mountain remains a mountain."
Words on your grave are very futile now
You tried, but you’ve died....
as many other asshole has.

Cuckoos and wolves are silent now
Remains of an old, odd song
about you and some mermaids
who tried to climb snowflakes
claiming to be God.
Track Name: Happy new year
You let all your memories down
The roaring you –
A mess of childish pranks…

A trembling heart –
Full of booze…
Happy New Year…
Track Name: A second chance
A second chance, we will not get a second chance,
these should be.the beautiful years, then why are they so full of tears?
And where's the beauty here?
All I see is anger and fault.
All i live on is dillusion and suspending my belief and what I'm seeing and reading and duly injecting
But I can take all of this I can take all this for you just for life in your eyes and for love on your face
And I stake my claim on 40years of prayer and I stake my claim on 40years of curses and for all these years bewildered
And we are the lucky ones, I'm told there are no reason for my tears, for no one has actually died here and you knew a man who knew a man
And we are the lucky ones, the numbers are on our side and therefore the case is closed you shall not merit a second thought
And you've been every which where and you are ever so happy to share and boast and never ask just what exactly is going on
And you saw us once we looked ok from 30yds so you need not ever ask just what exactly is going on
And I dreamt of the old lady who lived here long ago and she told me that the timing was not right and
Not to worry, for she'd lives through far far worse and everything would be all right
Track Name: Pusan
Do you remember, this day in Pusan.
I guess you were looking for someone.

Do you remember, the sun was shining,
and you, and you, were crying.

I remember, this day in Pusan.
I guess, we were looking for no one.

I remember , the sun was shining,

You still remain the girl from nowhere.
You still remain the girl from nowhere.
The sun was shining, and you, were crying
