GATE’s HISTORY

What Gate means

“GATE” is a name coming from the similarly called song “Powerful Gate” on the first EP. It is a gate to our inner world which anyone can open. People are opening or closing themselves. To the world inside. To the world outside. It is a kind of connection between the inner and outer space.

The beginning

First of all, Jaycob met Lenni in the Czech Republic at a university where both of them studied chemistry. They realised that they prefer to describe the world we all live in by music rather than by science. After finishing their Master degrees, Jaycob and Lenni packed their rucksacks and bought flying tickets to New Zealand. Music was connecting them with local Kiwis. Unusual situations and even more unexpected crazy stories behind firmed their relationship causing them to make a decision to pack again. This time they decided to move to the “Mecca of music”, London.

Consequently, in New Zealand was created the song I am the mistake: “Jaycob got drunk in a winery where they worked that time. He kicked off the front window in their car while climbing on the roof in a full speed.”

After J and L moved to London, it took them a while to settle down and get used to the mental city. After a year, they found a young drummer Ryan who has been working as a music producer. Or he found them? That time, the band was still called “Indole Mind”. All of them together started establishing their new music style. As a result of the resonance in their vibes, the new band name and graphic design came up too.

The first show

The first live show (still with the band name Indole Mind) was in East London 19th September 2015. There is (still) a nice and friendly place called German Deli Warehouse in Hackney Wick. Surprisingly, around 30 people came to see their first gig already and the audience was amazingly involved straight away.

BAND MEMBERS

Jaycob

was born 15th February 1989 in the Czech Republic. He has started messing around with his first guitar when he was 16. That time he didn’t take it seriously at all even when he had been seeing a jazz/blues guitar teacher for a while. Later he started singing and composing while he got inspired by Pharmaceutics Production studies.

Lenni

who was born 1st November 1986 in mountains also in the Czech Republic, has started playing bass when there was a memorial concert to a friend killed in a car accident and there was no bassist to play. Therefore she decided to take care of it and learned about 20 songs straight away. She fell in love with this instrument.

Ryan

is a British musician born 3rd March 1992. Ryan has started playing music when he was a kid. Years later he graduated in music and has played in several bands and collaborated on many various projects and all types of music. He sings and plays guitar, bass guitar, drums and works as a music producer. You can barely see him doing anything else but music.

I am the mistake LYRICS

How many times do I have to visit my underworld staff?
How many times do I have to see my death?
Would it be enough for me to die?
Could you please put my body into formalin?

Is everything just some connected sake?
Or kind of repeating protected wake?
Another ten years shortened my life
Could you please put my body into formalin?

I am the mistake in this perfect ordinary world
My soul is misshapen as I foretold
I am the mistake in this perfect ordinary world
I am the mistake
Master of mistakes

How many times do I have to visit my underworld staff?
How many times do I have to see my death?
Would it be enough for me to die?
Could you please put my body into formalin?

I am the mistake in this perfect ordinary world
My soul is misshapen as I foretold
I am the mistake in this perfect ordinary world
I am the mistake
Master of mistakes
Call me Mr Mistake
Call me Mr Mistake

Powerful gate LYRICS

When you open your privateness I can see powerful gate
Powerful gate!

If I let you scare me, you would
If not you’re powerful gate
Powerful gate!

Make sure you take everything around
To see nothing but you all around
Please make sure you won’t let me down
Please make sure you won’t let me down

Open the gate!
Powerful gate!

Out of danger LYRICS

 

(lyrics by James Fenton/Out of danger)
Learn as trees must learn to fall
Out of danger, out of love
Out of danger from the heart
Falling, falling, falling…
…out of love

What belongs to frost and thaw
Sullen winter will not harm
What belongs to earth and death
Is out of danger from the sun

I was cruel, I was wrong
Hard to say, hard to know
You don’t belong to me
You are out of danger now…

Heart be kind and sign the release
As the trees their loss approve
Out of danger from the wind
Falling, falling, falling…
…out of love

Jealous passion, cruel need
Betray the heart they feed upon
What belongs to wind and rain
Is out of danger from the storm
