woman I found this recently at my local record store ( radio-active records ). I bought it because of the album cover ha ha, I'm already so glad I did. I'm blown away and I've only just finished the first side of the record. I love the feeling of this album.

Amber Dean Dark and atmospheric with solid production and great songwriting. Saw them perform in Atlanta last week and they were amazing. Favorite track: Agents of Harmony.

brantly I saw them open for Cold Cave here in Minneapolis and was intrigued enough to buy the record, and it took several listens to digest this. It's an interesting contemporary-retro LP: Industrial pop, a kind of death-rock Depeche Mode, clean synths, a splash of 90's dance music. 'Game' is really where all the elements merge perfectly highlighting the band's strengths. Favorite track: Game.

There is no other I am the only one no need to wonder it's only just begun I just knew what I wanted You never knew what you wanted You can't contain me I'm brighter than the sun just maximize me I can't be over done I just knew what I wanted You never knew what you wanted I just knew what I wanted You never knew what you wanted

ESSEFF 02:32 video
I gave you all I had you said I gotta get a handful cause I'm fishing for a lifeline instead of learning from a master Don't you remember when we had forever? You brought the walls down with a single breath spoke a language that was already dead house divided you're gone forever And in the shadow of your monument I try to keep my hands full I wanna keep a piece of myself but you know everything about me Say you remember that we said forever You brought the walls down with a single breath spoke a language that was already dead house divided you're gone forever

Hold me under and don't let go if you can get your flag down and get back home I'm never giving up that treasure it's a part of me we go together Close my eyes or I can quietly suffer I was told it could be one or the other Take what you came for it's over now daylight is fading there's nobody around I'm never giving up that treasure it's a part of me we go together Close my eyes or I can quietly suffer on and on it's always one or the other

Burn 03:21
Hold out your hand stranger here's something for later Light it up to watch it burn a future we're creating I watched it turn into a long lost dream Respected and vaunted cause I knew what I wanted Light it up to watch it burn a future we're creating I watched it turn into a long lost dream

There's a game I play all the time two can play at once why don't you try? I can't get you out of my mind your love is so hard to define Take a look at me now have I disappeared is this the structure of love are you in here? You can take what you want I won't hide I can't get you out of my mind your love is so hard to define

Wild Wind 03:26
I'll say, look at you the pieces fell away, no I'm left with the view there's no moving parts giving away the design I'll move ahead anyway, I say the treasure is mine You'll never know this but you changed me, when I could never change myself A wild wind, you cut right through me Double time, get beside me I am of a mind to put this business behind me there's not surprises just unfolding disasters I am counting the steps to the end nothing comes after You'll never know this but you changed me, when I could never change myself A wild wind, you cut right through me You were my outline you contained me when I could not control myself A wild wind, you cut right through me

Junkies in paradise get set in stone young love is paranoid best left alone Where we are going the signal is dying I'm just behind you drag me into the daylight It's getting harder to find an orchestrated mess I can claim as mine, I can refine Agents of harmony soft by design they only operate just out of sight Where we are going the signal is dying I'm just behind you drag me into the daylight It's getting harder to find an orchestrated mess I can claim as mine, I can refine Where we are going the signal is dying I'm just behind you drag me into the daylight

Inside Out 03:26
In your hiding place, together again I'm alive don't know where or when Holding my army together again Heart of leather is unfolding itself Turn myself inside out leave the world with no sound let the sun do its work leave behind what I found Help me forget I found who I am wait around in the palm of your hand Breaking my mind and heart into pieces wait until vacate my cell a dream that's turning over to fever Under my tongue it's dividing my cells Turn myself inside out leave the world with no sound let the sun do its work leave behind what I found Help me forget I found who I am wait around in the palm of your hand Help me forget I found who I am wait around in the palm of your hand

There's no better hiding place than in your arms to put me together again running aground, I found out who you are it started with what you said Exit your castle enter your new homeland we found a place where nothing ever happens you'll see the future only when you're better you'll know a silence moving through the ages Forget your finery I stumbled into your fire to get a look at what's on the other side keep counting the hours I'll close my eyes till you tell me it's over Work with your hands and we'll find what came for there's no vision where nothing ever changes you'll see the features underneath the blindfold you'll be the wanderer that stalks the ages Forget your finery
10.
Are you inside, turning me over, making me blind? The sun drifts away another day older, floating in time I walk in shadows of everything we ever had two songs, written by the same hand long form, winding and vague you gave me something that will never go away you gave me something that will never go away Charm and demand taking me over, making me high and you're still inside the song never ended, words never die I tried to say the only thing that you can hear to make you happen, to see if you would reappear I wait for the end of the day you gave me something that will never go away you gave me something that will never go away
11.
Game 03:14
It was a game, you moved right through me you were the same, you never knew me but I was changed You were never enough for me but you turned my light on It was only a moment, magnified so why does it keep me alive? I'll set fire to everything that you ever wanted
