Band

Holborn Stereo is an indie rock band formed in early 2018. The group consists of Filip Prahl (vocals, guitar), Honza Novotný (bass, vocals) and Martin "Máťa" Valter (drums).

Filip Prahl

When you discover your parents' cassette tape with The Beatles and you cannot get away from it, it can lead to your own guitar. And then to an electric guitar. Meanwhile, you are looking for and listening to a lot of British music, and suddenly you find yourself playing your own song. It definitely makes sense to start a band. (Filip Prahl, vocals, guitar)

Honza Novotný

When you know how a lot of things are difficult to express by words. How stronger the feelings are than the reality of the outside world. Exactly defined terms and any structure melt. The songs disappear and there is just the music itself. It's hard, but it's somewhere there. The reason for the existence of the band. (Honza Novotný, bass, vocals)

Martin Máťa Valter

When you love your drums, you can play them from the 'bottom'. You can play as no one else. You can not learn it at school, you have to feel it. Music is about feeling and expressing yourself. And when it suddenly comes and it's exactly what you're looking for, the band finally gives you a sense of freedom and space to express yourself internally. (Martin "Máťa" Valter, drums)

Holborn Stereo is a mix of all this. It is not a band where there are members just because their instruments are needed. The British sounding and only English sung songs are created by them all.

She Talks Too Much


At My Door


21st Century


21st Century

By Filip Prahl

The more you love
The more things tie you down
The less you sleep
The more you miss your time

The more you hear
The more to filter out
The more you see
The more enhanced reality

21st century, no robot's humanoid
21st century, love is still paranoid
21st century, the world's still the same
21st century, still playing the same games

Lay me down in the clover
Wake me up when it's over
I'd like to lie in the clover
Wake me up when it's over

21st century, no robot's humanoid
21st century, love is still paranoid
21st century, the world's still the same
21st century, still playing the same games

The more you say
The more there's to explain
The less you play
The more you're in the game

21st century, no robot's humanoid
21st century, love is still paranoid
21st century, the world's still the same
21st century, still playing the same games

The more you love
The more things tie you down
The less you sleep
The more you miss your time

Alone (In The Tube)

By Filip Prahl

Alone in the tube
Just with a beggar and his hat
Blindly walking the way
You know so well

And though you are not blind
Your eyes cannot see
The empty spaces 'round
And the lonely people inside

Me, I wanna get out
Me, just wanna get out
Me, I wanna get out
Me, just wanna get out

You wanna live
You wanna fly
You wanna float
Don’t wanna die

It seems you’ll never see
But maybe you will be
Able just to feel
The light and dark

Me, I wanna get out
Me, just wanna get out
Me, I wanna get out
Me, just wanna get out

At My Door

By Honza Novotný

Smiles dissolve in pain
I'm on my own again
There's no shadow
'Cos there's no light
Searching for a man hiding inside
Shivering

Looking for a way
To put all my grief away
There's no rainbow
'Cos there's no sun
Searching for a unity of one
Shivering

In the daytime I try to forget
All from my childhood I've ever cried for
In the daytime I try to forget
all the chances I've had and lost
In the daytime I try to forget
all my fucked up dead end friendships
In the daytime I try to forget
gone are some of those I've loved the most
In the daytime I try to forget

But when the night comes
It all waits at my door
But when the night comes
It all waits at my door
But when the night comes
They all wait at my door
Oh, yeah the night came
They are waiting at my door

Deep Inside Me

By Filip Prahl

Suddenly I cannot be
The one I used to know
It's gettin hard to say the words
I used to say before

I'm looking for what has changed
The day or the time
It feels like I'm loosing my old days
Deep inside me
It feels like I'm loosing my old days
Deep inside me

Suddenly we cannot be
The ones we used to know
It's gettin hard to say the words
We used to say before

I'm looking for what has changed
The day or the time
It feels like I'm loosing my old days
Deep inside me
It feels like I'm loosing my old days
Deep inside me

I'm falling about my old days
Deep inside me
It feels like I'm loosing my old days
Deep inside me

Deep inside me
Deep inside me

Float

By Filip Prahl

As a Nowhere Man
I can hide my pain
Holding Lucy‘s hand
I’m gonna fade away

I’ve got a fistful of thoughts
I’m gonna text them all out
Behind cattish smile
I float above the ground

Behind limelight wall
Can’t see black or white
In the rainbow glass
Barefoot rainy night

I’ve got a fistful of thoughts
I’m gonna text them all out
Behind cattish smile
I float above the ground

I float above the ground
Trying to make no sound
So loonies never gonna find
We’re passing by

Sitting on a cloud
Let there be no doubt
‘Bout things we’re gonna do
Again alone tonight

I’ve got a fistful of thoughts
I’m gonna text them all out
Behind cattish smile
I float above the ground

I’ve got a fistful of thoughts
I’m gonna text them all out
Behind cattish smile
I float above the ground

I float above the ground
Trying to make no sound
So loonies never gonna find
We’re passing by

I Wanna Know

By Filip Prahl

I fly behind the Moon
Just to see what no one's ever seen.
I'm trying to find my way through the dark
I leave my feelings far behind

I don't want to let you down
But I'm getting tired as time goes by

I wanna know
Will you hold me if I fall
I wanna know
What our life's all about
What our life's all about
What our life's all about

Lying on a trampoline
I'm jumping to the cloudy sky
Though you think I'm going away
I know in a day you'll see me 'round

I don't want to let you down
But I'm getting tired as time goes by

I wanna know
Will you hold me if I fall
I wanna know
What our life's all about
What our life's all about
What our life's all about


I Wanna Know, recorded live in May 2018.

If I Were You

By Honza Novotný

If I were you
I would probably love me
'cos love is around
And the way up above me.

I should go to sleep
But my dreams are so scary
Stars too starshaped
And so unneccesary

I’m going away
Hope the flame is still burning
Ignoring the heads
I can see they are turning
Away…

Here’s my heart
But I don’t know where to start
And that’s my soul
But I don’t know where to go
I don’t know where to go…

She Talks Too Much

By Filip Prahl

She talks too much
She don’t let anyone in her place
She smiles too much
She don’t let anyone read her face

She leads her lonely social life
Among her friends
That come around all day and night

She travels too much
She sees all the sights with her eyes closed
She sings her songs
But no one‘s ever heard a note

They say she’s got a man
She keeps him in her mind
He’s got a band
He’d play a song for us had he been here

She talks too much
She don’t let anyone in her place
She smiles too much
She don’t let anyone read her face

She leads her lonely social life
Among her friends
That come around all day and night

She talks too much
She talks too much
She talks too much
She talks too much

The Fairy

By Filip Prahl

She said there’s nothing elven on her now
But I know she’s wrong
She said she wanna fly away
But how, she don’t know

I’m gonna wait for another day
I’m gonna make up what to say
I’m gonna find out what to do

And I saw you dancing with the fairies in the woods
I saw you dancing with the fairies in the woods

She said she could not stay with me
And now she is sure
I never gave her what she needs
But we kept walking on

I’m gonna wait for you to call
It’s gonna be another fall
It’s getting hard to talk to you

And I saw you dancing with the fairies in the woods
I saw you dancing with the fairies in the woods

I don't cry I don't know why
I don't cry I don't know why
I don't cry I don't know why
I don't cry I don't know why

Through My Memory

By Filip Prahl

Let me show you places I once knew
And take you down to my Strawberry Fields
You don't have to be afraid
We won't walk too far
And coach is included in price

Let me tell you stories I once knew
And take you through the mirror to my Alice's world
You don't have to be afraid
We won't talk too much
And couch is waiting right by our door

So get on the trip through my memory
Get on the trip through my memory
Get on the trip through my memory
Get on the trip through my memory

Let me help you find out who I am
I knew that when I got up this morning
I'm not sure 'bout it now
I have to find it out
Am I sitting in the coach

I need you by my side
I need you next to me

Get on the trip through my memory
Get on the trip through my memory
Get on the trip through my memory
Get on the trip through my memory

Get on the trip through my memory
Get on the trip through my memory
Get on the trip through my memory
Get on the trip through my memory
