When Panic Sets In And The Voice Of Reason Sits Thin When My Heart Feels Like A Rental And I’m Calling To Nowhere Central Save Me From My Dissolution Your Crying Eyes, And A Non-Solution, And Me Myself And I Our Heartbeats Beating On The Train Line Abandoned, By The Mother Of Time Does My Heart Look Like A Rental Am I Calling To Nowhere Central Time is the killer and there’s nowhere else to go Time is the killer and there’s nowhere else to go Time is the killer but there’s nowhere else to go Time is the killer and there’s nowhere else to go I’m saying Time is the killer And the killer is time I’ve been watching turns of the trickster’s dial But the outcome is mine Each one’s looking for something But the light’s bending out of sight I’ve been calling out to a nowhere land In the nowhere dead of the night I’m reaching out for redemption And the thorns I’m needing to pull But we’re victims of crime, and the mothers of time Pull the strings of the dancing fool Someone’s playing malice With the numbers ruling pain I’ve been trying to get to the sunshine But my heart is always in the rain And I’m watching the turn of the trickster Playing arithmetic And the ache of my last transmission In the hands of a lunatic And I’m calling nowhere Central And the numbers are insane But I bare the turn of the trickster Cause my Will is never in vain Time is the killer and there’s nowhere else to go

I Walk Alone 03:32
My answer’s written on the cold of my face I can see you’re lacking human grace Your eyes are steel but my heart is a tower I’ll keep you out in the critical hour of my fall Save me from the spies of above The wolves are all dancing on the death of my love, and I’ll keep my distance, but most of all I’m keeping you stranded in the critical hour of my fall In the critical hour of my fall

I Hear a whisper "I Love You" There's a shadow on the wall smiling Is it you I think its you my love Your pain is my pain Your love is my gain There's nothing here, nothing left to hide My love When autumn is calling and Spring is calling on a Winter's morning and Winter's falling Take us away, Lets fly away Let our pains and fears subside There's nothing left to hide My love I Hear a whisper "I Want You" There's a light inside your eyes calling Is it you I think its you my love Your pain is my pain Your love is my gain There's nothing here, nothing left to hide My love When autumn is calling and Spring is calling on a Winter's morning and Winter's falling Take us away, Lets fly away Let our pains and fears subside There's nothing left to hide My love You're so only I'm so lonely You're so only Take my hand my love

about

Lightarmour Editions - LE | 011

Call To Nowhere Central represents the first offering of all-new material since Crimson Boy's reformation in 2016. The 7 tracks on offer manage to meld the postpunk roots and signature sound of the band in equal portions to their contemporary and evolving direction; capturing an immersion in all things electronica both edgy and melodic.

As aficionados of the duo have come to expect, the play between light and dark, experimentation and pop, brooding romanticism and noise-tinted angst is again the stylistic and emotional core of the material. This dualstic tension is showcased especially on the extended remixes of the lead track, as well as "Last Transmission" - thick analogue basslines dance in the shadows of melancholic yet soaring string-machines.

The 1st track Call To Nowhere also features a rap-style delivery; a continuation of a spoken-word element in Crimson Boy's songs going as far back as "House Of Steel" and "Neon Dog". Elsewhere, the pretty neon-lit instrumental "Midnight Serenade (Ghosts In The City) features field recordings from a recent trip to Melbourne, as well as a guitar sound designed as a tribute to some of the initial guitar-based artists that influenced the duo - Modern Eon, New Order, Sort Sol, and The Cure.

The Free bonus track "Strut Gazelle, Eyes of Hell" is a demo version from a set of songs destined for further upcoming E.P releases. Strut Gazelle prominently features a new piece of kit for the band - the semi-modular Nyx synth by Dreadbox (based in Athens, Greece).

The EP download also includes another bonus track; the first audio sketch of new song "How Many Hearts Can A Broken Heart Break" which features an almost Martin Hannet production sound.
