about

'There Is No Sound' is an introspective, urban-celtic dance track confronting the push-pull struggle of letting yourself fall for someone new when cautionary flashes from your past are pulling at your back:

"There were night skies, and cinema screens,
Smokescreen lovers fake as fake white plasticine skin on skin,
My love, I have only just awoken."

lyrics

There Is No Sound

My love, I have only just awoken..
There were night skies and cinema screens,
Smokescreen lovers fake as fake white plasticine skin on skin,
My love, I have only just awoken.

There were headlights, and city stars,
Star-crossed lovers nonchalantly wrapped around each other,
And there was you, you..

And every careful word you say,
I save up for a rainy day,
Days are going by so slow.

In the headlights, I was camouflaged, it was coming fast, it was..
My heart, there is no sound (x 2)
It was a long day, I was losing time, I was killing time, and I realised,
Those means and ends, they were just keeping me warm and me I was them, but you…

And every careful word you say,
I save up for a rainy day,
Days are going by so slow.

In the headlights, I was camouflaged, it was coming fast, it was..
My heart, there is no sound..
