Sneaky sneaky pre-release of the song "Sunrise Laughing" from our new album FEEL to be released on the 7th October.

Pay What You Want as usual (including FREE/ZERO)

lyrics

Oooo I hear the sunrise laughing at the crazy way we're getting old
Oooo I see the birds are giggling and I wonder what it is they know
Oooo all my earthly problems are weighing heavy on my soul
Oooo I smell the napalm burning and I wonder what the hell we know

Is there escape in another dimension?
Is there solace in space?
I gotta know now

I'm reading Jean Paul Sartre as the flowers go about their day
Oh in one tiny petal they've got so much more to say

Is there escape in another dimension?
Is there solace in space?
All that I know is I'm living and breathing so...

Push me pull me just let the wildness in
Push me pull me just let the wildness in
Come on out in the pouring rain

Oooo we're all punching numbers to try and build a better rose
Oh what a crazy pass time stupid is as stupid does
Oh show me fields of barley I'll soak up everything they know
Oh show me tiny acorns waiting for the wind to blow

Is there escape in another dimension?
Is there solace in space
All that I know is I'm living and breathing so...

Push me pull me just let the wildness in
Push me pull me just let the wildness in
Come on out in the pouring rain

Push me pull me hold me squeeze me

Push me pull me just let the wildness in
Hold me squeeze me just let the wildness in
Come on out in the pouring rain
Come on out in the howling gale
Come on out be yourself again

about

Hope and Social Leeds

In the tradition of the travelling bands, we guess we’re a bit like a Yorkshire E-Street Band...meets Arcade Fire...meets The Faces…meets Dexys Midnight Runners…meets Prefab Sprout…at a party...in an argument about who gets to have sex with David Bowie. We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
