Your likes are all defined by all the things you hate All you can talk about Is what they are wrong about and all of their mistakes I could try, if you wanted me to Try to think like you Like you do Hey, hey, hey, hey, baby I hang on to every word you toss my Way, hey, hey, hey Day after day, I just can’t break away It’s complicated, suffocated, close to hate, too much to take I only want to hear you say you love me Bite your lip and keep it bottled up inside ‘Cause when you open your mouth I find it hard to tell the Jekyll from the Hyde I could try, if you wanted me to Try to think like you Like you do Hey, hey, hey, hey, baby I hang on to every word you toss my Way, hey, hey, hey Day after day, I just can’t break away It’s complicated, suffocated, close to hate, too much to take I only want to hear you say you love me Hey baby, don’t you wanna say goodbye You’re crazy, if you thought of you and I Hey, hey, hey, hey, baby I hang on to every word you toss my Way, hey, hey, hey Day after day, I just can’t break away It’s complicated, suffocated, close to hate, too much to take I only want to hear you say you love me

Waking up to a most familiar feeling Got a feeling that my feelings will feel the same Thought that by now I would be healing But I struggle even just to say your name   The snow and hail were dear to me Clouds part from my memory And I shiver when the leaves grow on the trees   Now the summer’s coming back to me Kicking screaming and I just can’t shake that feeling oh oh oh oh And the summer’s coming back to me   Through my curtains everybody’s smiling On the park, on the beach, on the lawn, on the streets and in the sea Never ending days won’t stop me hiding When the leaves are crisp in the mist that’s where I want to be   Now the summer’s coming back to me Kicking screaming and I just can’t shake that feeling oh oh oh oh And the summer’s coming back to me Kicking screaming and I just can’t shake that feeling oh oh oh oh And the summer’s coming

Roll down the window on the passenger side And let the air come through Looking at you I forget how to drive But this is the perfect view This is a bad place for us to break down But you had the good sense to Make it the opposite of hanging around By all the good things that you do When you go, go I look at you and you light up and say When you lose control From the walls to wall If you need it more Just breathe for me Remember you dress me up You explain the science of picking a lane But of course I couldn’t change How the wind breaks us so clear No you go, go Into somewhere that I can’t explain When you lose control From the walls to wall If you need it more Just breathe for me When the colour goes Better close our eyes And if you need it more Then breathe for me And I would fall on hands and knees And I would pray and beg and plead That the wave beneath me swells With everything you need Then you go, go Now I dream that you light up my way When you lose control From the walls to wall If you need it more Just breathe for me When the colour goes Better close our eyes And if you need it more Then breathe for me

Barcelona 03:14
Six AM, this orange haze, bleary in the morning light No-one uses paper these days, but all I seem to do is write On a night that could swallow you whole On a street that reminds you of home In a language you don’t understand Making sense where I normally can’t I lost that tuesday I didn’t go home I missed the last flight From Barcelona A warning sign, begins to flash, saying quit now while you’re ahead But even then, I just can’t stop, repeating the same thoughts instead 'Cause you want all the things you can see Close your eyes now and let yourself be As the moon is reflecting the sun And your face can be found in someone I lost that tuesday I didn’t go home I missed the last flight From Barcelona

FORMATS: 7" Single [Limited Numbered Edition of 500 copies] [White Colour Vinyl] / Digital Single

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

ATTIC LIGHTS were one of the biggest hits of 2008. Their singles, their videos, their songs grew from their native Glasgow and spread all over the world, until major labels were fighting to release the group’s first album, “Friday Night Lights.” It was finally released at the end of 2008 on Island Records, the company that has released albums by artists like THE B-52’S, John Cale, Nick Drake, THE ISLEY BROTHERS, and Ringo Starr, among many others. ATTIC LIGHTS received critical and popular acclaim, and toured all over the world. This past 2012 they signed with Elefant Records to release what will be their second album, “Super De Luxe,” but for now we’ve got this incredible advance single with four fantastic songs that make the power of their crystal clear guitars, especially when combined with their marvelous vocal harmonies and the solid choruses.

“Say You Love Me” is a perfect example of this. Forceful, epic guitars, full of pop spirit and the embodiment of distortion, euphoric, lifted by the excellent vocal melodies and a tremendous chorus – one of those songs that you find yourself humming a few minutes after hearing it for the first time – it’s a perfect mix of THE BOO RADLEYS and THE BEACH BOYS. “Summer’s Coming Back” is the exception that proves the rule: crystalline guitars for a delicate melody that’s as exciting as it is elegant, with those choruses in 4-part harmony that have been compared so many times to TEENAGE FANCLUB. In fact, Francis MacDonald has produced the group’s new songs again.

“Breathe For Me” (which will also be on “Super De Luxe”, along with the title track) is pure intensity with huge arrangements, euphoria stamped with their personality, and yet another chorus that shines again and again throughout the song, something between the incombustible energy of BIG STAR and WEEZER and the brightness of THE CYRKLE and HARPERS BIZARRE. Last but not least, “Barcelona”, a story of memories that the city of Barcelona brings up, definitely raises the bar for what we expect of a pop song. And this is just the appetizer. The main dish is about to arrive. And we’re all so, so hungry.
