about

We were very sad to hear of the passing of our inspiration and musical legend, David Bowie.

We wrote and recorded a tribute to the man for inclusion on our debut album, due out on March 4th 2016.

It would seem poignant to let it be heard now.

lyrics

Where do you want your head today?
We dine al fresco on the sounds that shaped our days
The tenure in vogue or David?
He redefines our taste in Pretty Things he throws our way; Oh! You

You tear me apart
Can your prose and tight notes win my heart?
You tear me apart
Do your gloats and white nose want my heart?

Where did you want your feet today?
Was the mud consensual - did it foil your planned escape?
Young hopes for a new dawn nailed it
An elder statesman stole it; all the Martians love a Dame

You tear me apart
Can your prose and tight notes win my heart?
You tear me apart
Do your gloats and white nose want my heart?

Torn between your sounds and the 'scene'
Again and again

You tear me apart
Can your prose and tight notes win my heart?
You tear me apart
Do your gloats and white nose want my heart?
You tear me apart
Can your prose and white notes win my heart?
You tear me apart
Do your gloats and big shows want my heart?

United they spice a sound which is emotively kaleidoscopic and engagingly unpredictable. ... more
