    This is the limited edition of my "Yellow and Grey EP " on CD with a "Blue and Grey" cardboard wallet and disc label. I have released it to celebrate the rebranding of the first Merseyrail Class 507 number 507 001 electric train to its 1980s "blue and grey" livery. The train is due to be withdrawn in 2024 after 40 years in service!

    "Yellow and Grey" recalls Mistrust's recent train journey to Port Sunlight (the historic workers' village in Wirral, UK), on the ageing yellow and grey trains that pass through the village. These trains are being replaced by shiny new modern trains which are also yellow and grey! Hence the line "Yellow and Grey is here to stay!" The song's overall themes are nostalgia and new beginnings!

    "Yellow and Grey" includes a line from the poem "From a Railway Carriage" by Robert Louis Stevenson (can you spot it?), and there's also a nod to the classic Kraftwerk song "Trans Europe Express" with Mistrust recording a German language version of Yellow and Grey ("gelb und grau") which is released alongside the original song.

    Both songs are taken from Mistrust's debut album "Sunlight".

about

Dies ist die deutsche Version des Songs Yellow and Grey von Mistrust.
"Yellow and Grey" erinnert an Mistrusts kürzliche Zugfahrt nach Port Sunlight (dem historischen Arbeiterdorf in Wirral, Großbritannien), in den alternden gelben und grauen Zügen, die durch das Dorf fahren. Diese Züge werden durch glänzende neue moderne Züge ersetzt, die auch gelb und grau sind! Daher die Zeile "Gelb und Grau ist hier für immer !" Die übergeordneten Themen des Songs sind Nostalgie und Neuanfänge!

lyrics

pünktlich die Stadt verlassen
gelbe grüne und rote lichter
leuchten
*bemalte Stationen pfeifen
vorbei
Die Menschen träumen in Gelb
und Grau
Brücken beherbergen
Silhouetten
Lange vergessen, kein Bedauern
Sonnenlicht beginnt wieder zu
erscheinen
Gelb und Grau ist, warum ich
hier bin

gelb und grau ist gekommen,
um zu bleiben
Fantasieren Sie über
Übertragung
Elektrisches Licht und
Informationen
Sehen Sie sich die
verblassenden Linien an
Gelb und Grau ist hier für immer
