LOVER OF A FOURTH KIND
an album in FOUR parts
The first part of our debut album, LOVER OF A FOURTH KIND was released on 29th April and is available to stream on all platforms and to buy on band camp. It contains 3 songs of a total twelve which will be released in four parts over the course of 2022, the final part due for release on 31st December 2022, after which the full album will be available on vinyl.
The album follows a city dwellers decent into madness. each song explores the excesses, addictions, anxieties and pressures a city imposes on an individual, from neck on the line, all you can eat, heart on your sleeve ecstasy, to shell withdrawal, wall building, womb-yearning, fear.
In this first part:
Whips and Scorns
A faceless soul creeps the bleak streets of a nameless city, pounded by an insatiable ambition, whipped and scorned by the ratchet of time.
The Holy Grail of Basildon
If enough people believe him he'll start believing himself. But he's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy.
Written 10 years ago during Eddie's first week in London before anxiety was even a word. This was his attempt to illustrate this pointless yet debilitating feeling. Now he realises it's just a rip off of Pink Floyd's The Wall, but fuck it.
