lyrics

drive along these fallow fields
empty skies grew a bumper yield
out of bounds, those were happy days
flew so fast, left it all too late

so shout, there was never any doubt
shout, what this was always about
shout, there was never any doubt
shout, what this was always about

side by side, wasn’t listening
there’s an end, strangely comforting
pulled along, wasn’t in the know
after dark never let me go

so shout, there was never any doubt
shout, what this was always about
shout, there was never any doubt
shout, what this was always about

so they say it isn’t true
that I’m me and that you are you
corner’s lost, it was all make believe
what we are, you must believe to see

so shout, there was never any doubt
shout, what this was always about
shout, there was never any doubt
shout, what this was always about

Traversing territory charted by artists such as Leonard Cohen, Kate Bush, Ben Caplan, Scott Walker and The Dirty Three, his debut album ‘Ultraviolet’ trips the space between instantly familiar chamber pop and the experimental margins of folk. ... more
