about

This is a concept EP, representing the chronological emotions felt whilst having a short-lived infatuation with someone, that ends up failing, through lack of communication, both people not sharing the same level of commitment, circumstances dictated. etc.
Each song is a warped and excessive description of the scenarios presented during the dating stages, before actually reaching a real relationship.

‘Fluxxx.’ is the beginning of the story, were the protagonist is meeting the girl for the first time.
It sounds uncertain and a bit infantile but by the end of the track, it turns into complete ecstasy.
The spoken word at the end of the track are foreshadowing for the end of the EP, from the point of view of the protagonist.
The track ‘Eggz N Bacey’ is the most celebratory song on the EP, which represents the moment you realise you really like someone. Excited from the prospect of what could happen, the lyrics depict outrageous metaphors of the feelings of great happiness, similar to that of lucidity.
‘Death Mountain’ then settles as you realise that the other person may also share the same feelings as you: through meeting up, hanging out, talking, getting to know each other.
This is the first track I wrote for the EP, back at the end of December, and set the tone for the entire record.
The last track ‘Ramen King’ is a total meltdown, of both emotion, describing the moments you start realising that the once, very real prospect of a relationship, is no longer as real, which is represented in both the music and the lyrics. Fumbling through different styles and ending with a climax of riffing guitar and heavy drums.
The spoken word at the end of this song, is directly related to the foreshadowing of the first song, but from the opposite point of view, bringing the EP round full circle.

It is vaguely based on my own experiences, and is dedicated to every girl I’ve liked.

Track Name: Fluxxx. (feat. Max Müller from Rivals In Friends)
Max Müller:
I'm staring into your eyes
I've been here a couple times
You drown your sight into your drink
With tensed hands and shaking lips

Oh I've been here before
Holding onto a glass
Like on a cliff
Trying to avoid the fall

But when I first saw you,
I had already had fallen.

So I'm waiting for the impact
And the liquid swallows me while I swallow it
drowning my thoughts
In the now hollow bottle

If I had one wish it would be you
cause You are the cure
The cause
The issue

And all i want to say is
Let's try it again
But you don't wanna hear such thing
So you stay you
And I stay I
Without any together
And I guess we'll be alright
I guess I'll be alright
Track Name: Eggz N Bacey (feat. Classically Handsome Brutes & Daniel Lund)
Classically Handsome Brutes:
It feels like cocaine on your birthday cake,
It feels like lucid dreaming but you’re wide awake.
It’s an arrow to the heart, but you still feel great.
It feels like cocaine on your birthday cake.

WAKEY, WAKEY EGGZ AND BACEY!

[Gang Chant]
Track Name: Ramen King (feat. Chaos Jigsaw & Bridget Gallagher)
Chaos Jigsaw -
Why'd I have to go & like, such a vice.
Always acting impulsive & never thinking em twice,
I can't help but see premonitions of you & I
but one minute we be lovers and next you never reply.
And even on the basis on other prior advise,
i can't help but humour mazes for cheese like laboratory mice.
Nice way to leave the aqueduct,
emotionally I'm packing up,
and never trailing back cause your actions making me mad as fuck.
Don’t wanna be strung along
Don’t wanna be the hungered one
ever time you serve it up its murderous the ramens gone,
so you just play your sorry song, one on one.
Then you stand in front of me & host more fiction than comic-con.
Once gone I'm armed & tryna get some refuged,
in a stressed mood,
seeing red cause my heads screwed,
been glued & screwed while dabbing in this wrecked ruse,
in direct feud with the spark, let me let loose.

I heart you, no,
you heart you,
we scarred the truth into recluse
and now should we choose to reboot,
will certainly be lacking the necessary of fruits,
when retro sparingly looked its probably rarely cooked
with champagne flutes & prada leathery boots.
i've had a shoot as various small pursuits but in the chasms of my memories I'm swilling on thoughts of you, the waterfall is true but i thought you already knew
Cause you don't gotta be sherlock holmes to see that I'm dropping clues girl
a new world, while the dune hurls
and i just sit on top of the drop waiting the moon swirl, it soon curls,
we're forever more,
place down scrabbling its jig-saw.

And the liquid swallows you while you swallow it.

Drowning your thoughts
In the now hollow bottle
