about

Recorded in the autumn of 2012, 'Tunnelvision' scores the dramatised, sleep-deprived notions, centred around school and college days, bygone romances and experiences with friends. Inspired by works like William Gibson's "Neuromancer", the music of Depeche Mode, and films by Harmony Korine, their new EP emanates a post-cyberpunk futuristic take on both the strange and familiar. 'Tunnelvision' is a heavily synth induced, psychedelic pop composition of undulating filters, arpeggiated arcade leads, video game tones and drum machine beats.

Track Name: Altered State
with little else to do
they say I could barely reach you
hopeless, dry your eyes
unstuck phase under static skies

optimistic view
so i’ll shrug this altered state
i follow every strand
summer swells take me by the hand

you don’t say what you really mean,
it’s just how it seems
you left without a trace,
and the one that i recall is somehow different,
somewhat out of place

days to find
these cobwebbed corners of self in my mind
when nights bent heart finally fades into starlight
trails in time

descending through
these things expand, and what you wouldn’t understand
so now you’ll return
questions, answers all become unclear
Track Name: Tunnelvision
vivid face leaves me so displaced
contemplating fate,
i’ll need to set this straight
strange haze, tv state
i’ll be gone before you finally wake

asleep, these thoughts I keep
only dissolve into the static deep
hand in hand we’ve come askew,
understanding these thoughts are nothing new

i won’t take you back if you feel that way
tunnelvision unglued all day
i won’t take you back if you feel that way
same dream, and you, don’t say

dislocated and compressed though afternoons,
leaves me stressed, hope this happens soon
staring at me, composure detuned
invitations always seem to loom

loaded skies between you and i
she shrugs, like it’s nothing new
last embrace, transferred meanings too entwined,
could have said what was really on your mind

i won’t take you back if you feel that way
tunnelvision unglued all day
i won’t take you back if you feel that way
same dream, and you, don’t say
i won’t take you back if you feel that way
i tell myself it would have mattered yesterday
i won’t take you back if you feel that way
world’s doom, I can see no other way
Track Name: Inner Level
repeating lines seem obsolete
too consumed in my own game
seeming like i knew what to do,
but I’d forgot there was you
running out, falling through,
luckily coming to.
graphic haze and pink fumes
turn me into

but I see you thought, i saw
you know it’s true
tell me it’s true (it’s easier)
understand, it’s all in your hands
there’s nothing I could do

too far out, too far between,
so your vibes are unseen
let me know when you finally realize
what had happened in that dream
i wait a long time
i knew it all so
i didn’t know what to do
and if it wasn’t true,
and if it wasn’t you
in the end i was walking out into

you left here, i didn’t know
it’s all up to you
i guess it doesn’t really show
i have a life you know,
i have a life you know
Track Name: Somewhat, Over
leaking sunspots spill in this phase in time
spill through my mind
all these illusions, fraught with delusions
couldn’t discern what was real.

i'm just a reflection, channeled and sustained
coloured shards, i can’t explain
strung out vibes, bedroom days
but you’re away, not to return soon

but there’s little i could do
in memories i still know you
just make a move,
just make a move
am i still on your mind?
always running out of time, so
just make a move,
just make a move

this loop passes though distant waves,
reflecting you
echoes hiss and i see endless abyss
dispersed without release
extending me,
don’t you see
my memory’s overstretched at best

when i’m asleep
layers falling through echo back to you

but there’s little i could do
in memories i still know you
just make a move,
just make a move
am i still on your mind?
always running out of time, so
just make a move,
just make a move
Track Name: Monochromatic
waking thoughts obsolete
whispered message too incomplete
transmission fray, meanings decay
returning some altered way

your tape fraught notions too revealed
unwound secrets you’d concealed
expressions too clear, seeing thoughts i tried to hear,
always running in my ear.

dream i know you before i do
and it’s clear
only viewing a shallow truth,
nothing’s real
somehow,
we’ve already been here
somehow,
your face is too unreal
somehow,
you’re too scared, so
somehow,
asleep i let you know
somehow,
you’re too scared, so
somehow,
asleep i let you know

tv burn strays from the screen
i'm reading into what they mean
revealing where the patterns were born
dissolving dreams spawn
i couldn’t tell you in the dawn

and if we melt, somehow right through
to where the images fade
all the feelings unglue
just me and you
but the light distorts you
