about

Primitive Feelings (Hook & Prayer/Ray-On) will be released in two parts this summer, before combining on vinyl as a long-player in the fall.

A summery mix of soulful, druggy beats and classic indie, Part 1 recalls the lo-fi dance vibes of Cornershop, Primal Scream and Beck. There’s a touch of Mark Ronson too, were he to take on a rock band (not likely – they asked).

Following a Floyd-esque intro, the tone is set with a heavy Latin-soul groove. Things get funkier from there, culminating in the strange mash-up of rhythms and hooks that is the title track.

Track Name: Employment and Enjoyment
When I was 16, I joined the circus
For ten years of mandatory national service
I walked the tightrope to please them all
(But they secretly hoped I’d fall)

Next, I was offered a lifetime sentence
Of bringing home bread for my descendents
I did hard time pulling on their plough
And milking the sacred cow

But I never really learned their trade
Never learned to use the tools they made
Never read their instructions
For making lemonade when life gives you hand grenades

I get by with distractions, honey
Lord knows, you look distracted, too
So next time I need a little distraction, honey
I’ll come looking for you

I carried the world upon my back
Like a good megalomaniac
During the years I was employed
Holding us over the void

They’re handing out medals to the bravest soldiers
After the war, when you’re much older,
As long as you follow each and every command
Out into no-man’s land

But this place has never really felt quite right
I think I missed my connecting flight
Somewhere I’ve got friends
Waiting for me at arrivals on Proxima B

I get by with distractions, baby
Lord knows, you look distracted, too
So next time I’m looking for distraction, honey
I’ll come looking for you
