She’s not worried, she won’t get hurried There’s plenty of time left, plenty of wine left One drink more might help her see The wood for the trees She’s not worried, about tomorrow She’s on a mission, to drown her sorrow And all her troubles drift away Like leaves on the breeze In a parallel world Where the rain never falls And hard times never call At the door Meanwhile back here on planet earth There’s too many voices, and too few choices The consequences of all this Are easy to see We’re all hard pressed to find some soul now The old school bullies are in control now High time for a cosmic shift To carry us all To a parallel world Where the game is the same But the rules have all changed From the start In a parallel world We could lie on the ground Watch the sky spinning round Upside down

Sometimes you just can’t tell the end from the beginning Words and pictures, from time unwound And when you turn the light out your head’s still spinning Doubts and daydreams go round and round Believe me it’s the same for everyone All we have is a moment in the sun No-one cares about chances that you missed Or melodies of songs that don’t exist Truth is the highs and lows will still keep coming Makes no difference what state you’re in And no-one’s forcing you to keep on running In a race there’s no need to win Honey it’s the same for everyone All we have is a moment in the sun No-one cares about chances that you missed Or melodies of songs that don’t exist

about

"A Moment In The Sun” is the debut long player by silver biplanes, a melodic indie band based in Bedfordshire, England. The band features wife-and-husband team Vanessa Vass and Tim Vass alongside drummer Rob Scott and the album is the pinnacle of a musical career which has previously seen Vanessa and Tim release songs on no fewer than 30 different labels between them!

The band are lifelong fans of the highways and bi-ways of music and the album draws upon a wide range of influences. It’s a heady mix of choruses, hooks and catchy tunes in which you’ll hear traces of psychedelia, post-punk, krautrock and more.

Tim was bassist and lyricist in cult indie band Razorcuts, co-writing all of their songs. Razorcuts releases regularly featured in the higher reaches of the independent charts throughout the late 80s, and included two top five albums recorded for the famous Creation label. Both albums were reissued in sellout deluxe vinyl editions in 2020. Razorcuts continue to appear on numerous compilations and their influence is often cited in books and internet articles. Tim has also played in Red Chair Fadeaway, Dandelion Wine and the Forever People.

Vanessa was the singer in 90’s indie band The Melons who are probably best remembered for their two legendary live sessions on Mark Radcliffe’s Radio 1 show. The Melons released 6 singles and were regularly featured in the British music press.
