about

With a wide range of influences from The Flaming Lips to Jon Hopkins, 'Last Light' delves into themes of solitude, despair and the perils of human relationships.

Produced over 12 months, the 10 track album captures a glimpse of the collective psyche that was syrup, go on at a moment in time. The band finds peace through the realisation and acceptance of the inevitable departures of life. Despite desolate themes, optimism is always a layer away.

Track Name: Mantaray
LYRICS:
Mister mantaray
He would say
Come my way
And he showed
Me the stars
But I knew
It was too far

We’re gliding past your house
But I didn’t stop to look to down
My head in the clouds and my mind without a trace
I’m up in space

We’re gliding past your house
But I didn’t care to look down
My head in the clouds and my mind without a trace
Of this place
Track Name: Ego Sand
LYRICS:
I heard you feel peace
I heard you ride this earth
Walking and roaming these lands
And falling deep into the

Ego sand
I refuse to disband
Ego sand
Don’t take my hand

The search for solitude
Had been brought to pass
My body trembles
I’ve been here before

There is more to it
Nobody sees it
No one understands it
The invoiced essence and the

Ego sand
I refuse to disband
Ego sand
Don’t take my hand

The search for solitude
Had been brought to pass
My body trembles
I’ve been here before
Track Name: Don't Go (Riding Down The Cosmic Drain)
LYRICS:
Talk so much I hear you in my head
You left your coffee cup on my bed
Thought you were leaving half an hour ago
So why you still standing here at my door?

(I know you don’t want to go)

So ride that wave you're on
There’s no real reason to be left alone
Spent so long feeling the same
Don’t go riding down the cosmic drain

(I know you don’t want to go)

My timing was only off by a moment

Sunrise, the day has come
There’s no real reason left for you to run
Spent so long feeling the same
Don’t go reaching so fast for change

So ride that wave you’re on
There’s no real reason to be left alone
Spent so long feeling the same
Don’t go reaching so fast for a change
Track Name: Dismiss Everything (Sweet Nauseas)
LYRICS:
You waste your time
On my mind
It’s always the same
Everyday

Dismiss everything, everyone
Cease to exist for a few months

You’re on my mind

Dismiss everything, everyone
Cease to exist for a few months

Nauseas, sweet nauseas
Track Name: Who Am I Foolin'?
LYRICS:
How can I miss this?
I watch from a distance
My eyes they stay
I wanna look away
I’m sensing reluctance
In my eye’s injustice
Why am I still here?
It’s coming oh so clear

But who am I trying to fool?
(who am I kidding? I’m never gonna mean a thing to you)
I never meant a thing to you
(who am I foolin’? All I am is company)
I poured my soul into your world
(who am I kidding? I’m never gonna mean a thing to you)
But I can’t change the way you felt
(who am I foolin’? All I am is company)

In hindsight it mattered
The earth slowly shattered
My eyes they stay
I wanna look away
Deception is growing
Surely not knowing
Why am I still here?
It’s coming on so

But who am I trying to fool?
(who am I kidding? I’m never gonna mean a thing to you)
I never meant a thing to you
(who am I foolin’? All I am is company)
I poured my soul into your world
(who am I kidding? I’m never gonna mean a thing to you)
But I can’t change the way you felt
(who am I foolin’? All I am is company)

How can I miss this?

I fool myself
Track Name: I Never Wanted You To Care
LYRICS:
Rolling like the last light
Bouncing off the trees
Your mind is a wanderer
And you lost it in the breeze
Shaking my head at you
You can’t keep your nose out
You’re running me in circles
And filling me with doubt

I never wanted you to care
I never wanted you to be there

Rolling like the last light
Bouncing off the trees
Your mind is a wanderer
And you lost it in the breeze

I never wanted you to care
I never wanted you to be there
Track Name: Dreams
LYRICS:
Haunts you again
Reminiscent of friends
Decide to change for now
Never seems to work out

Get out of my dreams
I don’t see your need

Reach an impasse
Gather all that might last
Decide to change for now
Never seems to work out

Get out of my dreams
I don’t see your need
Track Name: Even The Sun Ain't Designed To Heat Up All Of Us
LYRICS:
Oh, don’t you ever wish to feel
Free from this all
My effort almost made it real
But I gave in to you

Oh, every time I try to move
You seem to pull
Hard until I start to bruise
All before you cushion my fall

Even the sun ain’t designed to heat up all of us
Even the moon helps the tides cos they’re not strong enough

So I suppose I should promise myself
To be kinder to everyone else
So I suppose I should promise myself
To let go of anything I had felt

Oh, maybe I’ll begin to heal
Forget about all
I’ve been trying so hard to conceal
When I give in to you

Go where you were before
Wind is howling and safe no more
Coming close now left behind
Will this warmth ever be mine?

So I suppose I should promise myself
To be kinder to everyone else
So I suppose I should promise myself
To let go of anything I had felt
Track Name: Last Light
LYRICS:
So I suppose I should promise myself
To be kinder to everyone else
So I suppose I should promise myself
To let go of anything I had felt
