Breakout! 03:21
Listen There's a breakout here tonight So if you want in Tap three times on the pipes. The prison hasn't been built that can hold you So no matter what they told you You're gonna be just fine Breakout! Tonight's the night We're going to scale these walls and drop the other side A silhouette in the spotlight Breakout! You got it right We're gonna tunnel under floors until we see daylight And life burns in our eyes, in our eyes There's a rumble in the wings A stifled spirit sings On the inside you get a lot of time to think But all you think about is getting out Far away from here Breakout! Tonight's the night We're going to scale these walls and drop the other side A silhouette in the spotlight Breakout! You got it right We're gonna tunnel under floors until we see daylight And life burns in our eyes, in our eyes Listen The world is changing fast Don't miss it Cause you won't get the time back Breakout! Tonight's the night We're going to scale these walls and drop the other side A silhouette in the spotlight Breakout! You got it right We're gonna tunnel under floors until we see daylight And life burns in our eyes, in our eyes

Help! Our girl has gone Went to school on her bike but she never arrived Where's she gone? She left us a note, just said she couldn't cope Where's she gone? Find her! Find her and bring her back home Find her! Find her and bring her back home Please, our girl has gone She's not street wise or wild She's just an innocent child on her own She's had problems before We just didn't realise she was so low Find her! Find her and bring her back home We're not angry Just Find her and bring her back home They've found her! They've found her! They're bringing her home! They've found her! They've found her!

Slow Cooked 02:36
I don't look at my bank account I won't brook getting that stressed out Why dwell on pain That I can't change? Slow cooked girl seeks slow cooked guy For wasting time and running wild Take my heart, it's ready now Been waiting so long to come out Don't wear a watch around my hand If I'm late that's your too bad I'm in no rush Slow cooked Slow cooked girl seeks slow cooked guy For wasting time and running wild Take my heart, it's ready now Been waiting so long to come out I've been cooking up something so long Put a fork in me darling, I'm done I'm a slow cooked girl Take my heart I'm a slow cooked girl Slow cooked girl

What are you celebrating? What are you celebrating? The country's in a mess But did you see her dress What are you celebrating? What are you celebrating? What are you celebrating? The future's looking bleak But isn't he so sweet What are you celebrating? When I think about these times An anxious feeling swells up inside What are you celebrating? What are you celebrating? You camped out overnight To get a good view They moved along the homeless To make more room There's a newspaper cutout, a flag to wave They took a little break from peddling fear and hate And just who is paying for this farce While schools and hospitals are on their arse Why, the general public baby, you and me For some things there is a magic money tree When the cry goes out 'God save the Queen' What are you celebrating?

Foreign Ways 03:28
Far from home, I never strayed But in my soul lie foreign ways I should be just like a native But I'm dissimilated I'm a stranger in this land that made me Though I've worked so hard to belong And I learned to speak the language But at night I dream in my own tongue Local born but ill-attuned And everyone calls me coocoo I should be just like a native But I'm dissimilated I'm a stranger in this land that made me Though I've worked so hard to belong And I learned to speak the language But at night I dream in my own tongue I'm a stranger in this land that made me But I can't leave now 'Cos I've got so many reasons to stay here This is my town I’ve got foreign ways They say I've got foreign ways

10.29 on a Saturday night And I’m coming alive I am buzzing to see you Dressed to the nines Got my hair piled high Got my dancing shoes tied And I can't wait to meet you But as I walk to the door There’s a quaking in my thoughts I feel the beat of my heart Beating up my mind I hesitate, what will I say? Coz I can’t go outside I can’t close my eyes No, I can’t go outside It's too late for tonight So if it’s all the same I’ll hold my breath and wait I’ll hang on for another day Shaking the weight I head down to the place I bite my lip and I sigh But I just have to see you Waiting to brace I fix a smile on my face Get a grip on myself As I’m dying to see you But as I walk to the floor Counting my foot steps as I roll I take a deep breath in It’s all that’s left to do I hesitate, what will I say? Coz I can’t go outside I can’t close my eyes No, I can’t go outside I won’t sleep tonight So if it’s all the same I’ll hold my breath and wait I’ll hang on for another day

I didn't want to spy When I was recruited I was stupid Didn't know it was an interview Now that the end is nigh I wanna see what happens Though it's madness 'We're not in Kansas anymore' Whoa whoa whoa I'm almost falling in love I know that you won't change There's something in your brain That's twisted But in your eyes there's something true Things will never be the same This is my final case And no matter what happens I will follow you Whoa whoa whoa I'm almost falling in love
8.
When I finally reached you I knew that I had found Someone to dance about Someone to make me shout out My pounding heartbeat tells me I’ve got someone to hold me up Someone who builds me up, Someone who lifts me up Hurry on home Hurry on home to me Hurry on home Hurry on home With every passing minute I’ve got someone to stand beside Someone to lie beside Someone who makes me smile I wanna tell the mountains I’ve got someone who makes me run Someone who makes me jump There’s nothing I’m hiding from Yeah, Yeah, Yeah There’s so much I wanna say Yeah, yeah, yeah Darling don’t make me wait Hurry on home Hurry on home to me Hurry on home Hurry on home

No Mystery 02:27
Do you see in me All the little clues to how I feel For you tenderly How I feel for you is no mystery Do you hear my thumping heart My mouth go dry, my voice drop Kiss my cheek and it feels hot And I feel myself burning up Do you see in me All the little clues to how I feel For you passionately How I feel for you is no mystery Do you see my eagerness To pay you favours and compliments Like your faithful teacher's pet You smile at me and ruffle my hair Do you see in me All the little clues to how I feel For you passionately How I feel for you is no mystery It's no mystery I'm not that hard to read I know you know it's true I've got it bad for you!

Ted Wedding 02:50
There was a girl, and she liked Teds She did not care what people said And there was one boy with slicked back hair Who loved her so, and he asked her square 'Do you wanna have a Ted wedding?' She laughed like a drain and said 'yeah!' So she told her folks she was engaged And how she hoped her dear old dad would give her away But the Old Man, he blew a fuse Said 'you marry this boy, I'll disown you If there's gonna be a Ted wedding Well me and your mum won't be there' Well the day arrived and in defiance our heroes wed When who should come but dad and mum in shiny new threads Turned up jeans and duffle coats and thick crepe shoes And they all made nice and danced all night with old friends and new It was a Ted wedding, and everyone there was a Ted!

Been asleep since I got out of bed Feeling like the walking dead When I speak I don't recognise my voice All I do is work and collapse The hours are long and the pay is bad All I want is to make a little noise I wanna go out Out where the music is loud Don't wanna be sitting at home Fall asleep with the TV on Feeling life is slipping out of reach Right now I'm climbing the walls I'm dangerously bored And if I don't have some fun I'm going to scream I wanna go out Out where the music is loud Once I was out every night But loneliness grows like a vine And before you know You're on your own screaming to be out I wanna go out Out where the music is loud I wanna go out Out where there's love to be found

There you are The girl that I knew The one who blew me apart Your sway when you move The wave in you hair Your face when you smile I like you in blue Here you are Good times I recall Times I hold in my heart You started a band You starred in my tale Your parting words I like you in blue In reverie I sometimes ponder Will we just become a moment Lost in a sea of confusion How far and wide is that damn ocean? Who whoa who am I trying to fool Words spin in an endless loop Tell me should I just cut loose I’m counting down the days till I’m with you I like you in blue (It's that thing when you're with someone and you love them and they know it and they love you and you know it but it's a party and you're both talking to other people, and you're laughing and shining and you look across the room and catch each other's eyes because that is your person)

The first time you looked at me it felt like the first time Someone really saw me in my life The first time you spoke to me it felt like the first time I was really talking in my life On the extinction list I knew no others of my kind Until I saw you for the first time The first time you confided in me I could tell I was hearing Words that you were speaking for the first time And each time you smiled at me I could swear I was flying And my tender heart it filled with pride On the extinction list I knew no others of my kind Until I saw you for the first time The last time I held you it felt like the first time I didn't apprehend it was goodbye And as you walked away from me for what was the last time I knew I'd love you until I die On the extinction list our habitat declined Still, I'm glad you got your wish And were let back into the wild

about

"An impressive dizzy display of DIY pop freshness. A stellar debut."
White Light White Heat

"An enjoyable album, highly recommended for those who want to return to those fine C-86 days."
Monolith Cocktail

"No doubt a contender for one of the Top 10 albums of 2020. Giving it a listen is the least you can do."
Records I Like

"Following the footsteps of many beloved '80s guitar bands and wielding sharp lyrical pens, the band rides enthusiastic musicianship and excellent harmonies straight into our hearts."
When You Motor Away

"The tried and true indiepop I adore, Into The Wild blankets me in charms and melodies."
Austin Town Hall

"A superb album, full of memorable melodies and quirky, clever lyrics."
Colours Through The Air

"With jangly guitars and serious pop prowess, this record reminds me of a gentler time, spinning Sarah Records releases and making mixtapes. Even if the Hannah Barberas sound like they embrace the past, they are not stuck in it."
50Third and 3rd


All songs recorded at home by the band, mixed by Trevor Fountain and mastered by Jim Riley at Ranscombe Studios.
