about

"Instruments from the machine world and live outputs, plus vocal harmonies “bind” together miraculously with a laconic though compact drift. " - giveitaspin! (Greece)


This album is a shift in focus for BIINDS and is centered around its current three piece line-up, but at the same time marks the return of long time collaborator Christy Taylor.

With a departure from orchestral arrangements and overall stringed instruments, the album aims to be visceral, minimalistic with a sense for nostalgia and synthetics without entirely abandoning the sense for ambiance and space.

Track Name: Ne'er-do-wells
We might be vagrants
But we're in need
We are like agents

We might be agin'
But when in need
We have each other's backs

We have each other

We have each other's backs
We have each other
We have each other's backs
Track Name: Negative Joe
Yeah let them rest for a minute
The demons, the animals, the creatures

Ah, negative Joe
Believe in my foes
Believe in my to and fro
Ah, negative Joe
Believe in my foes
Believe in my to and fro

Sometimes when I feel like coming home
It waits for me, standin'
At times when I feel like goin' home
It waits for me, breathin'
At times when I feel like walkin' alone
It waits for me

Ah, negative Joe
Believe in my foes
Believe in my to and fro
Ah, negative Joe
Believe in my foes
Believe in my to and fro

"I'll just tuck away my pain
No one wants to see it anyways"

Self-pity getting old
Self deprecating mold
This soul of yours is sold
You are just a wall of steel
These layers you must peel
You will never see the gold like this
You shall only see the mould like this
Your face of piss, the snake has hissed.
Track Name: Further
I radiate my past love

I terminate this past love

Illuminate my calling

Disintegrate, I’m falling

I’ll assimilate this womb, then

Chorus:

Comatose, bleak like mold

It graces the ice

Just on hold

Comatose, bleak like the mold

It graces the eyes

Just on hold


Don’t feel like walking down this road

But I have to

Don’t feel like going down this road

But I have to

Don’t feel like walking down this road

But I have to

Don’t feel like looking down this road

But I have to...

(Chorus)
Track Name: Incessantly
Reined by the clock
The mediums
We surrender to their poison
These prominent quotes
Are voided in the Devil's details

Here we are
Can't get out of our
Precious realm
So calm, oblivious
So calm

We're in a coma, can't get out

It is in my system
To fuck it all up incessantly
It is in my bloodstream
To disappear without a trace

Too busy for these lame guys
Too busy for the ones that are not you
Too engaged for the same lies
Too unsure to even handle your own truth

It is in my system
To fuck it all up incessantly
It is in my bloodstream
To disappear without a trace
It is in my system
To fuck it all up incessantly
Track Name: Plus
Come closer
Come closer, soon.

I need you, more than ever
I need to, more than ever.
Track Name: Minus
A.

Pale, black and blue colors
Of a night sky drift
Shifting like a halo would
The mold on skin and teint
Dissipate into the night
As I bleed silently in prayer

Hour after hour, heaven shall burn
On top of it all you see
In an abstract vision
Delete my status and recommence
This journey of a day time dream

(Repeat A)

C.

Burn intuitively
I sought to change it, I came to praise it
Yearn intuitively, I sought to face it
I came to praise it
Burn intuitively, I sought to change it
Track Name: Breaking the Omen
Peelin’ the ash away
Allusive
You heathen must cut away
Into

Bodin the path and way
Into

Feeding the calf at bay
I love you

Shovin your wrath away
Into, darling

Creating this girl at bay
Into

The heathen must cut away
Into
