about

Ping Pong Club 1st Album 'Retrospective'

Ping Pong Club is a Bandung-based indie pop / electro pop / dream pop band (absolutely not a sport club). The name was adapted from the audio verba ‘ping pong,’ which means the bouncing sound on a stereo panning, from left to right and vice versa. Formed in 2017, Ping Pong Club is an alternate project of its members that combined the sweetness of indie pop / dream pop music with a more futuristic sounds from the electro pop’s synthesizers.

Retrospective is the debut album from Ping Pong Club. The concept album is the first release of a trilogy 'Past, Present, Future'. Retrospective represents the 'Past' of the trilogy, comprised of seven songs, with 'Venetian Blinds', 'Skylight' and 'Ecstatic' previously released as singles in 2018. This album is a cornerstone for the band in the music scene.

Track Name: Retrospective
RETROSPECTIVE

Show me all pictures that you've drawn
You told me back, 'hang it on the wall'
I took it off, staring at the clock
I put it back to where it belongs
You wrote a letter, a retrospective poem
You let the words flowing as a phrase
Close your eyes, laying on the floor
Bring me back the moments again

You made me drown deep inside my soul
Walk around, then running on the shore
Holding back and watch the rising sun
Bring me back the moments again

Show me all the things you keep inside
Let it out, breaking down the walls
This illusion from my endless thoughts
See the past through the countless doors
You wrote a letter, a retrospective poem
You let the words flowing as a phrase
Close your eyes, laying on the floor
Bring me back the moments again

Staring at pictures that you've drawn
I let it stay hanging on the wall
I took it off, on a starry night
I put it back to where it belongs
You wrote a letter, a retrospective poem
You let the words flowing as a phrase
Close your eyes, laying on the floor
Bring me back the moments again
Track Name: Skylight
SKYLIGHT

From that fancy coffee bar across the road
She’s wearing her brand new running shoes
But she would never realize
That she stood above her own lies

She was standing with her phone on her hand
While having a call, then she starts to cry
Oh, will she ever realize?
That she stood above her own lies

No, she won't let go
Yes, she won't let him go
Don't you know what she want?
So essential

No, she won't let it go
Yes, she won't let me go
Well, she found what she want
Under the skylight

She’s still there with her old fashioned dress
Calling me then she starts to cry
Oh, I should start to realize
That I stood above her own life

No, she won't let go
Yes, she won't let him go
Don't you know what she want?
So essential

No, she won't let it go
Yes, she won't let me go
Well, she found what she want to say
Under the skylight

No, she won't let go
Yes, she won't let him go
Don't you know what she want?
So essential

Oh, she won't let it go
Yes, she won't let me go
Well, she found what she want to say
Under the skylight
Track Name: A Step Closer To Your Room
A STEP CLOSER TO YOUR ROOM

You made me love things you do
Even though you’re not here
Even though you’re not mine, huu
I was alone in my room
Wondering how it would be
It’s now or it will never be the same

When the time is right, can I have a moment with you?
If we’re made for this, can you stay right here with me?

All I know is things about you
It’s you and you, and this time
I found myself standing at the place that you always go

You made me drown so deep
It’s the scenes from the memories
Well you were the saint when I lost myself
Like a morning stars, oooh

When the time is right, can I have a moment with you? (So let me in)
If we’re made for this, can you stay right here with me?

All I know is things about you
It’s you and you, and this time
I found myself running to the place that you always go

All I do is thinking about you
It’s you and it’s you, and this time
I found myself a step closer to your room
All I do is thinking about you
It’s you and it’s you, it’s not the time to let you go
As I’m closer to your room
Now it’s time, to reach across the line
We swept away our lonely days
Track Name: Ecstatic
ECSTATIC

Take a long time, day and night
Take a long time to keep the moments away, away

Take a long time, it’s up and down
Take a long time to tell the stories again, again

It’s been a long time, in and out
It’s been a long time since you’ve gone away, away

Cause I wanna take my time
I wanna close my eyes
To be alone

Take a long time, all night long
Take a long time, oh will you go away?
Away

It’s been a long time, left and right
It’s been a long time to say the promise again, again

Cause I wanna take your time
I wanna take you go
With me, right now

And I wanna take my time
I wanna close my eyes
To be alone
Track Name: Venetian Blinds
VENETIAN BLINDS

No matter how far I try life will get me there
To live and shout it loud every single time
Would it be lonely to live above the bright blue sky?
As I gaze you, I let the light shine on me

No matter how close I see, the colors fade away
Words are flowing out, yeah I’m blinded by your smile
In an endless night, on an empty space
I still gaze you there, so let the light shine on me

So let the lights shine on me
Track Name: She's Your Trouble
SHE’S YOUR TROUBLE

All the things she kept inside, she told the morning sun
She’s walking down the hall, she keeps asking why
She’s so fine shifting all your words
She’s so high, moving on the dance floor

She lives her lushy life, with boys around her back
She acts like she don’t care, when she bangs your door
She looks so fine shifting all your words
She’s so high, moves you on the dance floor

It couldn’t get much easier
When she’s up above the sky
Oh no, she’ll get you in trouble
It couldn’t get much easier
When she’s up above the sky
Oh, no

She’s moving up her lips singing all her songs
She didn’t even care, like a superstar
She looks so fine shifting all your words
She’s so high, she moves you on the dance floor

It couldn’t get much easier
When she’s up above the sky
Oh no, she’ll get you in trouble
It couldn’t get much easier
When she’s up above the sky
Oh, no
