This is a strong, uplifting, midpaced slice of postpunk and darkwave loveliness. The instrumentation blends almost trance like electronica with sparkling guitars, driving bass and rock solid drums. Every time the line “In his house, alone, forever” lands I get shivers.The tracks unusual structure further elevates the song and the lyrics tell a much darker story than the epic music initially conveys. Perfect mix.

A new track from our upcoming 2017 record The Directory.



Push through the irony
Here’s what it means to me
Words like machinery
Flopping like a broken reel
You can say whatever you want
I’ll hear whatever I want
It’s not the words that stay
It’s what they mean to me

Let the wheel, slip in your hands
Hit the brakes, now

How much for your right hand?
How much for a liver spent?
How much for a hairless boy?
How much for a naked priest?
To grant you eternity
That’s what it mean to me
I won’t be there anyways
Love comes to the man who stays

In his house, alone, forever
That’s right, we’ll live
Forever in here
Forever in me
