Song: WHITE ELEPHANT
Album: Carnage (2021)
With my elephant gun of tears I’ll shoot you all for free
If you evеr think about coming ’round here
I’ll shoot you in the fucking facе
If you think of coming around here
Pretty scary if you think about it…

This Friday, 6 April, psychedelic super team MIEN release their self-titled debut album.
The thrilling 4-piece features frontman Alex Maas (The Black Angels), Tom Furse (The Horrors), Rishi Dhir (Elephant Stone‘s maestro) and John-Mark Lapham (The Earlies). Ahead of their debut LP the transcendent sound explorers just launched another new track. (I’M TIRED OF) WESTERN SHOUTING is a bold drums driven roller coaster. An absorbing stroke resonating heavier along its robust way, slowing down somewhere
in the middle only to repeat its heavy pattern again before ending, abruptly, a cappella. Wow! Here’s the audio clip…
All info & pre-order facilities right here.
Musings for the twilight hours…
Band: NAMES – Ioan Hazell (vocals / piano) and Joey Robbins (drums)
Home: Pembrokeshire, Wales
Track: LIMB BY LIMB – the duo’s 2nd single – singer Ioan says the song is “largely inspired by the ignorance of issues within a relationship which slowly bring about its demise. Also the effect of a background anxiety on life and ability to socialise.”
Sound: A sensitive and moody beauty with an intimate piano melody sounding like a soft heartbeat. Touching fear that makes you silent. Reflective sadness at its fragile best…
Stay far away from corners nothing good’s ever behind them in the dark.
Feel it all getting smaller,
Closer to the core,
So much brighter so much hotter.
Don’t be alone,
Don’t be alone.
Stay silent in the face of noise,
Refrain from the human joy
Everyone is bathing in
Day by day.
Washing yourself in the pond,
It ripples for a second,
Dissipates and soon you’re gone:
Wave by wave,
Limb by limb
Release Date: 11/10/17 – Label: Libertino Records – Format: Digital Single
