Oy! Oy! Oy! Oy! I spend my days on the road, my nights dreaming of home It ain’t working so they say, it ain’t working I lift my head above for now, cards are stacked I’m getting out It ain’t working so they say, it ain’t working I’m sick of being underground, lift my head and let me feel the air I’m sick of knowing how but I can never seem to get there Oh, I wonder how I do what I do Oy! Why do I do what I do? Oy! I see the nights closing in can’t quite think of where I’ve been It ain’t working so they say, it ain’t working I keep my smile and how I lie, you can’t see times running out It ain’t working so they say, it ain’t working I’m sick of being underground, lift my head and let me feel the air I’m sick of knowing how but I can never seem to get there Oh, I wonder how I do what I do Oy! Why do I do what I do? Oy! Lost days, sleepless nights, where have I been Lost days, sleepless nights, wakey wakey. Lost days, sleepless nights, where have I been I spend my days on the road my nights dreaming of home It ain’t working so they say, it ain’t working I lift my head above for now, cards are stacked I’m getting out It ain’t working so they say, it ain’t working I’m sick of being underground, lift my head and let me feel the air I’m sick of knowing how but I can never seem to get there Oh, I wonder how I do what I do Oy! Oy! Oy! Oy! Oy! Oy!

Elgin Towers 04:32
The towers of Elgin reduced to ash Jimmy Forsyth he took photos of brothers The world wasn’t new but it felt like it too What a lie! How big are your dreams when your drowning in gutters What a lie! Ohh, who wants to feel that power? Who wants to rule the world? Who wants to live in castles and watch the others burn? Who needs to feel that power? Who needs to rule the world? Who needs to live in castles and watch the others burn? The climb of the Splitcrow Road where the rivers did die The louder you scream don’t let them see you cry How big are your dreams when your drowning in gutters What a lie! Ohh, who wants to feel that power Who wants to rule the world Who wants to live in castles and watch the others burn Who needs to feel that power Who needs to rule the world Who needs to live in castles and watch the others burn And we can’t give nothing, can’t give nothing no more And we can’t give nothing, can’t give nothing no more And we can’t give nothing, can’t give nothing no more And we can’t give nothing, can’t give nothing no more Ohh, who wants to feel that power? Who wants to rule the world? Who wants to live in castles and watch the others burn? Who needs to feel that power? Who needs to rule the world? Who needs to live in castles and watch the others burn? And we can’t give nothing, can’t give nothing no more (No more) And we can’t give nothing, can’t give nothing no more (No more) And we can’t give nothing, can’t give nothing no more (No, no more) And we can’t give nothing, can’t give nothing no more (Ohhh) And we can’t give nothing, can’t give nothing no more (They can’t take enough) And we can’t give nothing, can’t give nothing no more (No more) And we can’t give nothing, can’t give nothing no more (I can’t take no more) And we can’t give nothing, can’t give nothing no more (Ohhh)

E.P 04:01
Potions be potions keep this man alive One is for boredom the others to hide I’ve got more scars than skin You see where I’ve been I’m not your hero, tonight Feeling the pressure, a sickness in bone Holding the feather while your banging your drum More hits and falls than a thousand bar brawls I’m not your hero tonight Emotional pleasure, when it comes up Like the first time I drew breath I ain’t come down yet Emotional pleasure, and it don’t stop Like the first time I drew blood Thicker than the black mud Emotions in motion the rise and the fall Keep it together while your feeling it all I have made my mistakes, I got lost in the breaks I’m not your hero tonight A service to madness let your mind be free The hatters approaching while your sipping his tea I got no one to blame and I don’t feel no shame I’m not your hero tonight Emotional pleasure, when it comes up Like the first time I drew breath I ain’t come down yet Emotional pleasure, and it don’t stop Like the first time I drew blood Thicker than the black mud Emotional pleasure, when it comes up Emotional pleasure, and it don’t stop Emotional pleasure, when it comes up Emotional pleasure, woah

Apathetic feels electric when your feelings are totally skewed When the colours of your life turn a dark and terrible blue The fear, the anger, the pain is just an interlude Where you’ve been living in the dark you need a spark to see you through When all is lost, I’ll be your friend We all feel it like you do, it’s not the end When all is lost, I’m by your side We can talk about nothing, you decide Understand it like we know it, face the fear and push on through Don’t hurt the thing that I’ve been loving, since I first saw you The fear, the anger, the pain is just an interlude Wonderful person that you are, you need to see it too When all is lost, I’ll be your friend We all feel it like you do, it’s not the end When all is lost, I’m by your side We can talk about nothing, you decide Ahhh we can talk about nothing Ahhh if it’s what you decide Ahhh we can talk about nothing Ahhh if it’s what you decide Ahhh we can talk about nothing Ahhh if it’s what you decide

Fade Away 04:38
Is it enough to get noticed enough to carry on I can’t see the reason that you’ve been feeling so down so long Your confidence has took a kicking Open wounds you should be licking Hung your dreams on a rusty nail Has no meaning when you don’t feel, you fade away (Fade away) girl when you fade away When you fade away (Fade away) when you fade away (Fade away) girl when you fade away When you fade away (Fade away) when you fade away Is it enough to feel wanted, enough to feel alright Every lover, every man, you never wanted them in your life I can see the reason why you’ve been beating so hard on yourself You think you’re better, you think you’re bigger now you’ve been put on the highest shelf When you fade away (Fade away) girl when you fade away When you fade away (Fade away) when you fade away Girl, you keep on fading away Oh sugar you keep on fading, you keep on fading Oh baby you keep on fading, you keep on fading away Oh sugar you keep on fading, you keep on fading Oh baby you keep on fading, you keep on fading away Fade away, fade away Fade away, fade away Fade away, fade away Fade away, fade away When you fade away, girl, you keep on fading away (Fade away) girl when you fade away When you fade away (Fade away) when you fade away Girl, you keep on fading away Oh sugar you keep on fading, you keep on fading Oh baby you keep on fading, you keep on fading away (Fade away) you keep on fading away (Fade away) you keep on fading away

about

2020 sees the release of Smoove & Turrell's 6th studio album Stratos Bleu – a slightly different direction for the boys as they take influences from their infamous DJ sets where they fuse northern soul with funk and electronica.

The production is a marriage of everything that they grew up on fused with elements of modern music, taking influences from Chicago House to Massive Attack, Inner City to Kruder & Dorfmeister but with the distinctive drum heavy dancefloor production Smoove is famous for.

For lyricist Turrell the album is a throwback to the rose-tinted halcyon days of his youth, from stealing his Dad’s aftershave to hearing house music for the first time. The challenge for both was about finding the right balance between the Smoove & Turrell sound that has brought them such a fanatical following and the raw dance music they grew up on, while always striving to be original.

Do It - the first single from the album is recognizably a Smoove & Turrell dancefloor destroyer and leads into the glorious analogue bubbler It Ain’t Working – slated as their second single.
The tougher electronic sound will be a surprise to some but those denizens of the night who have seen these guys work a crowd from the DJ booth will know what to expect – extraordinary lyricism and tight beats.

The ecstatic breakbeat fueled This Time keeps the album peaking but of course there is always shade with the blinding light on a Smoove & Turrell album and downbeat tracks like Never Wanted You More and Talk About Nothing bring you back to a balearic heyday for vocal electronic dance music.
