three guys, few instruments

the paints

Well in short, The Paints are three guys playing few instruments, trying to make it sound right. They make their music as simple and as honest and direct as possible. Sometimes, you might say, it's done with a bit of "rocking blues twist" and sometimes it's something completely different. Constant changes of frequent feelings, silly moods, twisted views, crazy love/s and mighty hate/s or, in general, of Life is what inspires them. Hear it out sometimes. You might like it, sometime. Till then, Music on... Cheers!

Our sixth single is out and it is, oh well, a bit, how do you say it. . . . melancholic. When one feels empty as a drum . . . or foggy and cold like winter night. . . .and one wants to share it . . . in a song form . . . then one gets . . . . Melancholy* (CAREFUL: it burns after you've listened it for about dozen times)

21 / 10 / 2021 Our fifth single is out! Marshmallow fight is . . . what it's all about :)

09 / 7 / 2020 Our fourth single is out! Sweet Little Mountain is a nonreligious prayer with erotic elements:)

06 / 12 / 2019 Our third single is out! We believe that there are two main types of songs: the ones that make your hips, legs and the whole body move, and the ones that make you cry behind the kitchen sink. This one is for crying behind the sink.

20 / 09 / 2019 Our second single is out! A complete Love/Life story in 3:53 min :)

Can a man fight for the things/places/people he/she wants to have/go to/be with or is it all about trying not to struggle, but to accept and understand?
