about

Based out of Berlin, Manono produces music driven by funky grooves, rock energy and pop melodies.

The eponymous EP you’re looking at is the band’s first try to take you away with their music. This is also hidden as a message behind the name of the band, as Manono is actually a small island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Overall vibe of the presented music is groovy and vivid with some extremely catchy vocal lines. MANONO is a conceptual set of tracks. It starts with the idea of not getting stuck in the daily routine: “Yes!” Can You Dig It is a celebration of YOU in the present time. The choir effect in the refrain represents the power of awareness. Where Are the Humans deals with Instagram and being disconnected to the real world. Especially in that funky-Jamiroquai-inspired part of the song, one can really get into the feeling of being lost due to the online communication mess. What Do I Mean, Pad Thai and Speechless are on the love team. They show aspects of different types of relationships, and in doing so the vocal gets more affectionate, the instruments softer and slower. Relationships are hard, whether they are at the beginning, at the very end or impossible to define. Don’t miss out on the sexy melodic What Do I Mean ending, reggae break in Pad Thai or the clapping hands and combination of three voices in Speechless’ “La, la, la, la” part. The bonus track Penguin Dance is the funkiest of them all. Lovers of Red Hot Chilli Peppers will savour its ‘slap the bass’ break. This upbeat dance track concludes the MANONO EP with a positive thought – sooner or later you will be able to look back at your past with humour, even if you don’t understand it right now. The Penguin Dance title isn’t metaphoric; it goes together with an actual dance. Join it and enjoy!

Track Name: Can You Dig It
Ditch the humdrum and get a new feel

Don’t steal the truths make it for real

Don’t taste it, eat it till it all tastes the same

Tame and proclaim, don’t blame, it’s your game

Wake to the call of reality now

Time is a gift no need to know how

Trust what you do till you go all the way

Don’t back away, dreams are your aim



Let’s drain them till our souls are full

Let’s play it by our rules

Let’s drain them till our souls are full

Let’s play it by our rules



Life’s the stage and we have our play

Abide yesterday make tomorrow today

You won’t win battles without a loss

You’ve got to have courage to go through it all

Can you dig it or you like to pretend?

Ditch it away as you know there’s no end

Opium fiend destruction or bliss

Who cares what there is, as what’s there it is

It is what it is, yes



Let’s drain them till our souls are full

Let’s play it by our rules

Let’s drain them till our souls are full

Let’s play it by our rules



I celebrate myself to the beat of my heart

Come with me don’t break it down

I celebrate myself to the beat of my heart

Dance with me don’t break it down

I’ll show you how, to the beat of my heart

Come with me don’t break it down

I celebrate myself to the beat of my heart

Dance with me don’t break it down

I’ll show you



Let’s drain them till our souls are full

Let’s play it by our rules

Let’s drain them till our souls are full

Let’s play it by our rules
Track Name: Where Are The Humans
I know a place where food looks tasty

Where gods did a fine job

The ordinary is celebrated

And the bodies are spot on

And I can see the perfect nature

the ideal self-confined

Regardless of the postures

the contorted gals are liked



But where is the vibe?

Where is the flow?

Where are the humans

That I used to know?



I dream of tropical islands

And rosy afternoons

Like getting lost in Alaska

Rather than being stuck in this tube



But where is the vibe?

Where is the flow?

Where are the humans

That I used to know?



And nobody knows me

nobody knows me

I don’t know anyone

I don’t know

And nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

I don’t know anyone

I don’t know

Nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

I don’t know anyone

See the wall

See them all



But where is the vibe?

Where is the flow?

Where are the humans

That I used to know?
Track Name: What Do I Mean
I could show you awesome if you’d let me

We could be the sources of our energy

If I tell you that I love you give me

More than just a stupid question: What do I mean?



Ain’t no shame in fallin’

Down on the floor

Ain’t no shame in fallin’

Donw on the floor



I’m asking, thinking, trying to get to know you

I’m not trying to push you away

Take a closer look and see I’m scared too

The night is young and so are we, who knows if we’re meant to be



Ain’t no shame in fallin’

Down on the floor

Ain’t no shame in fallin’

Donw on the floor



Right and wrong are pure conceptions baby

And wrong feels right sometimes too

Come with me forget yourself and maybe

We will be like one or two, let’s find what we’re both into



Ain’t no shame in fallin’

Down on the floor

Ain’t no shame in fallin’

Down on the floor
Track Name: Pad Thai
We could go to your hometown

Wouldn’t that be sweet?

We could chill on the rooftop

Talk about the times we were still meant to be



Wouldn’t that be sweet?

If we could meet, if we could



But who am I

To cut your wings

When you can fly

So who am I

To cut your wings

When you can fly



You and I could eat some Pad Thai

Watch the sun go down

Put on our favourite tunes

And dance instead of walking



Wouldn’t that be sweet?

If we could meet, if we could



But who am I

To cut your wings

When you can fly



You are so free

You are so free

So just fly, my friend, away from me

Because you are so free

You are so free

So just fly, my friend, fly away from me



And 1, 2

But who am I

To cut your wings

When you can fly

So who am I

To cut your wings

When you can fly
Track Name: Speechless
Last time I saw him

he was dancing in the sun

Catching rays exploiting, exchanging

And no place to be found

Straight out of cartoon

Full of joy, yeah



Can’t get enough, can’t get enough

Of how we feel

Can’t get enough, can’t get enough

‘cause with him I’m



Speechless, speechless, speechless

It’s so hard to explain

Why I’m speechless, speechless, speechless

Left with nothing to say

Left with nothing to say



Funny how you may think that you’re in control

Until you meet a male version of you

Killing with kindness, yeah

You understand each other instantly



Can’t get enough, can’t get enough

Of how we feel

Can’t get enough, can’t get enough

‘cause it is real, I’m



Speechless, speechless, speechless

It’s so hard to explain

Why I’m speechless, speechless, speechless

Left with nothing to say

Left with nothing to say



La la la



I found my soulmate and it’s tough to forget

I found my soulmate please don’t make me regret

I found my soulmate but we couldn’t be friends

I found my soulmate now it’s all in my head
Track Name: Penguin Dance
Penguin Dance

Penguin Dance

Penguin, come on, whoa

Penguin Dance

Penguin Dance

Everybody’s talking ‘bout it



When you just can’t get higher

As there is no alibi

When time has won the battle

Cause nothing lasts forever

Or you think you’re a rock star

But you haven’t had a gig, right?

Or you just found your true love

and you can’t be together, do the

Penguin, come on, whoa

You don’t think it’ll hit you

But soon you’ll find it’s in you

You don’t think it’ll hit you

But soon you’ll find it’s in you

You don’t think it’ll hit you

But soon you’ll find it’s in you

You don’t think it’ll hit you

But soon you’ll find

You don’t think it’ll hit you

But soon you’ll find it’s in you

You don’t think it’ll hit you

But soon you’ll do the
