about

"With this album, lyrically I wanted to write songs that were outside of my own personal experience, although in the end I realised they were all self-reflections on love, loss and time passing. Musically, we wanted to explore the possibility of creating a dense sonic atmosphere for each song, without relying on guitar distortion that was so prominent in ‘Made of Stars’. We introduced elements such as synths, mandolin and cello, coupled with Bossa Nova and electronic beats here and there. Vocally I experimented with multi tracking and layering-sometimes with up to eight different vocal lines on the same track. The whole album is underpinned by heavy tremolo and melodic bass that has come to define our sound”
Louise

Track Name: Don't Give Up On Me
I won't give you shelter
When you're weary
Won't make it better
I play the fool
Falling from Grace
I wipe the smile right off your face
And when you need a friend
I kick you down
I mess around
I hide away and wont be found
But I don't mean to
Its how I'm made

Someone, said you're lonely
And you're feeling, kind of empty
I've played the fool
Falling from Grace
I've messed around and its too late
Now you're leaving
I'm just afraid

Don't give up on me
