Fallen 03:43
Crummy, market preachers Soon to be stone deaf dreamers Foreshadowed voices, whisper We spiral to infinity, when they're... Fallen, fallen, fallen, fallen, fallen Stone deaf faces, you're courageous in your ways Sometimes outrageous when the unborn slaves say Foreshadowed voices, whisper We rival our deepest ennemies when they're... Fallen, fallen, fallen, fallen, fallen Fallen, fallen, fallen, fallen, fallen...

There's something in the way She moves herself There's something in the way She stings your mind in your everyday Wake up and move your magic spell onto the people 'round us There's something in the way She stings your mind in your everyday Release this tension of mine Bring me to this world you know so well inside Fear's our worst enemy You've got none There's only us to dawn upon Wake up and move your magic spell onto the people 'round us There's something in the way She moves herself in your everyday

People Walk 04:00
It was a Sunday In the rain, and you were there It was a Monday At the grave, when you were where? People walk, people talk People see what they want to see People walk, people talk People see what they want to see It was a summer day When the king thought he could have his way, but you weren't prepared He chose to see you He chose to breath down onto you, but you weren't there His heart was somewhere Someplace you'd be glad to be, but you'll never know People walk, people talk People see what they want to see People walk, people talk People see what they want to see

In the deepest night, she walks to you She talks in a way, that is true to you She's a fool for your super power A fool at a strangest hour She's a fool for your super power A fool at a strangest hour In the shimmer of the crown, she bent you down She spent you up, in a forgotten part of town She's a fool for your super power A fool at a strangest hour She's a fool for your super power A fool at a strangest hour

What's the story? You've been so sorry for What's this glory? You've been so granted for I told you you should of told us so... We sent out A package to your doorway But you've proven You're not worth this fine pointed form I told you you should of told us so... The first empire's best When the last one's caught fire The first empire's best When the last one's caught fire

about

Scattered Clouds Hull, Québec

Scattered Clouds is the sound of post apocalyptic romanticism. The Hull, Québec experimental band underscores auto-fictional narratives with brooding rhythm, cavernous vocals, and precise noise. Terse retro-synthetic soundscapes call to mind the works of Vangelis or Tangerine Dream, paired with the uneasy ecstasy of Suicide or the tense, thundering underbelly of Liars. ... more
