noridelzeus It has so many lush tracks, it’s so hard to pick a favourite. The whole album basically brought life back into my dull weekend Favorite track: Seeing Eye Dog.

aeriemusic The title of the album is perfect. It is less rhythm driven but still retains the Young Galaxy open landscape with more focus on the lyrics and dare I say it a bit of maturity moving in. Melodies are subtle but they grow on you... Favorite track: Frontier.
The Andromeda Project

The Andromeda Project this is one of the sexiest records i know. it is nighttime and drawn blinds. it is candles and subtle rhythms. it is sensuality and depth of heart. it is feeling a pulse that is not yours beating against your chest. it is a collision of moments from which it is not always easy to catch your breath. 💙 Favorite track: Catch Your Breath.

Track Name: Under My Wing
Come along
When you
Hit floor
When you’re
Lurking
Under fire

Burn it down
What you
Wept for
In a long bellow
It is done

Come along
With the shaded
When you
Feel it
Pulling under
Then I
Gotta know

It’s a kernel
In a lonely life
And you
Look at it fall
And I turn my back
For I can’t know

Come under
My wing now
It’s alright

Come under
My wing now
It’s alright

Gotta hold that halo
Gotta calm that fight
Gotta heal that hollow
Gotta earn that light

Empty halls
Shuttered windows
City limits
Where you wait for

Counting coins out
On the platform
Under hard light
What you wish for

If you’re shaded
If you feel
It going under
If you’re shaded
If you feel
It going under

Come under
My wing now
It’s alright

Come under
My wing now
It’s alright

Gotta hold that halo
Gotta calm that fight
Gotta heal that hollow
Gotta earn that light
Track Name: Seeing Eye Dog
Tell me what
You long for

My paper-thin kin
In this nonsense

My beauty
In a permanent
Bulls-eye vest

We never stop
Never rest no

It’s ok that we don’t
Know what is

It’s ok that we’re
Alone in this

We are seeing-eye
Dogs in the darkness

Little kids kicking
At the ant nest

Our love is a buffer
To the bullshit

Is the fire that runs
Right through it

These days I wanna
Lean into it

Even harder
Than I have before

We are seeing eye
Dogs in the darkness

Little stones scratching
At the surface

It’s ok that we don’t
Know what is

It’s ok that we’re
Alone in this

We’ve been holding out
Hope for the less than

A little voice calling
From the wasteland

Our love is a buffer
To the bullshit

Is the fire that runs
Right through it

These days I wanna
Lean into it

Even harder
Than I have before
Track Name: Catch Your Breath
Step through
The break
In the trees
And step down
In the frequency
Catch your breath
And transgress
We’ll make more
Here with less

Press me into
Cracks in the rocks
Hear the hum
In the trees
We came down
Through valley
To catch up
With the sea

Let’s roll, let’s sigh
Let’s love our heat
And stride
Feel ourselves
Increasingly wide
Carry the meaning
Meaning inside

Catch your breath
And transgress
We’ll make more
Here with less
Hold my tongue
To a song
Let go of words
When words
Steer us wrong
Track Name: Show You the Valley
Look around
This ghost town
How could anyone
Fall in love
How could anyone
In the pale work lights
Of a satellite town
Nothing’s going down

Move along
Through the night
Under homesick trees
That line
The riverside
In the pale grey days
Of falling rain
It is all the same

Come below
With me
I want to show
You the valley

We can feel
We can feel
We can feel
Surrender

Outside in the street

It’s darker than sleep
I can’t seem to hold on
In this concrete sea

No geometry
I woke in
A dream
Rising and falling
On the concrete sea

Move along through
The night
Past the empty homes
That dot the skyline
Through the pale moonlight
And the comedown
Of a satellite town

Come below
With me
I want to show
You the valley

We can feel
We can feel
We can feel
Surrender
Track Name: River
We can be a river
Fill a new sea
Mother river
Alive in me

They’ll make it hard to see
Our natural unity
They’ll make it hard to rise above
Our sense of indignity

I’ll fall in with you
Come fall in with me
Moving along through the world
One heavy body

We can be a river
Fill a new sea
Mother river
Alive in me
Track Name: Frontier
They don’t care about love
Cause they’re hollow in the heart

And they don’t care about us
And we know we’re below but we
Don’t want what we haven’t got

We belong here at
The frontier
Where we open the world
And become what is
Between us

We belong here at
The frontier
Where we open the world
And become what’s at
The heart of us

And they’re not living in love
Though they hold the control
Don’t want what we haven’t got

And no one’s helping us up
They don’t even know
What goes on below the shallow part

We belong here at
The frontier
Where we open the world
And become what is
Between us

We belong here at
The frontier
Where we open the world
And become what’s at
The heart of us

You and me
Alone
Track Name: Stay For Real
In the brain
In the engine room
The game is a rout
I got fires to put out

In the rain
On an eastbound train
Rushing towards
Some kind of future

Where you found me
In the lonely
Wooden tower
Nothing’s more real
Than what it is
And I’m trying to
Show you

I’d never expect
You to deliver me
No I never wanted
Anything easily

Everything’s changing
But we gotta
Stay for real

The way that we speak
Is coming out differently
Nothing we wish for
Ever comes easily

Everything’s changing
But we gotta
Stay for real

Don’t be vain
Don’t swallow the bloom
Keep it plain and devout
As the fires burn out

In my brain
In an unlit lane
Marking a road
That leads to nowhere

Where you found me
In the lonely
Wooden tower
Nothing’s more real
Than what it is
That’s what I’m trying to
Show you

I’d never expect
You to deliver me
No I never wanted
Anything easily

Everything changes
But we gotta
Stay for real

The way that we speak
Is coming out differently
Nothing we wish for
Ever comes easily

Everything changes
But we gotta
Stay for real
Track Name: Glowworms
From my throne at
The back of the bus
In the transit kingdom
Tracing my finger
Over ghosts of the living
I’m inevitable
In the rich man’s world
We’re unenviable
In the rich man’s world

Turn from the
Fantasies of youth
Into the night
Alone together

And I’m looking at you
Did you play the part
Did you get on your knees
And betray your heart
Could you say that it’s down
When you know that it’s up
When your instinct tells you
That it’s never enough?

And think to myself
Could I play the part
Could I get on your knees
And betray my heart
Could I say that it’s down
When I know that it’s up
When my instinct tells me
That it’s never enough?

Down in the field of
Floating lights
We make the rounds
Alone together

Looking like glowworms
Track Name: Devotion
I’ve got the tools
To open all the way
But lovers are cruel
And everyone’s insane
Nobody’s fooled
We play it all the same
Who’s in the mood
To give themselves away?

I won’t sleep
If you can’t sleep
Running circles
Worn into our heads

I won’t see
If you can’t see
Running circles
Worn into our heads

I won’t speak
If you can’t speak
Running circles
Worn into our heads

I won’t be
If you can’t be
Running circles
Worn into our heads

Deep devotion

‘I’m just a fool’
Says me inside your head
‘Tell me the truth’
Says you inside my head
Blackened and blue
The way we trash ourselves
Who’s in the mood
To give it all away?

I won’t sleep
If you can’t sleep
Running circles
Worn into our heads

I won’t see
If you can’t see
Running circles
Worn into our heads

I won’t speak
If you can’t speak
Running circles
Worn into our heads

I won’t be
If you can’t be
Running circles
Worn into our heads

Deep devotion
Track Name: Elusive Dream
The whole kit,
The whole game,
The whole world
Is fucking absurd
Armed to the teeth
For the next urge
And there’s a hint of demise
In the air
We will walk these streets
For only so long
Until the next ones come
Giving up on
A holiday
Enslaved by
The living wage
We do it
All over again
But what do we really want?

our legacies
our big breaks
The ripple in time
That’s left in our wake
It’s been the same thing
Everywhere in every time

Elusive dream

Every view,
Every sense,
Every word
We try to defend
Puts us further out
In the deep end
There’s a hint of regret
In the air
We will haunt these feeds
For only so long
Until the next ones come
All the lights
That we gather ‘round
In the cities
And in the towns
We do it
all over again
But what do we really want?

Our fantasies
Our desires
To be heard
To live for three words
It’s been the same thing
Everywhere in every time

Our legacies
Our big breaks
The ripple in time
That’s left in our wake
It’s been the same thing
Everywhere in every time

Elusive dream
