Future Bound 04:05
Giving up your love ‘cause I can’t give enough I’m not from this time, I’ve a future mind Say goodbye like friends would say, am I man enough? I’m following me to a future beat I know you’re living in the past And baby my time here isn’t going to last It’s better if I leave, if I leave Yeah I’m going, I’m going, I’m going I’m going way back, way back Getting off the wrong track, wrong track I’ll give you all your time back ‘Cause a love like yours gives me a heart attack Giving up your love’s sweet flow from head to toe I got so high on you I got vertigo Hanging out with those troubles, where you go they go I’m following me to a future beat When love comes take its hand But the truth is that you were made for another man Oh I’d rather be, places that are new to me I’m going, I’m going I’m going way back, way back Getting off the wrong track, wrong track I’ll give you all your time back ‘Cause a love like yours gives me a heart attack Take a step back Take a step back Take a step back Take a step back in time Take a step in time, to when you were mine Give my love back, I’m a future boy and I’m future bound I’m going way back, way back Getting off the wrong track, wrong track I’ll give you all your time back, time back ‘Cause a love like yours gives me a heart attack I’m going way back, way back Travelling on a new track I’m getting all my time back ‘Cause a love like yours gives me a heart attack

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

Can’t get by without you baby And I’m running out tonight You’re my first and last to me Everything has got to be alright Don’t you know I need to love you? You knock me off my stride Long before, did I mean more Or is this the love of all time? Woken up with the slightest touch With a love so much, you’re by my side It feels so right to lie beside something that is so fine My heart has no more beats to give Why don’t you stay before you leave? Can’t get by without you baby Are you coming out tonight? It’s so true my love for you is clearer than the sky Don’t you know I can see you want me? I can see it in your eyes Just a look it’s all it took You took me by surprise Woken up with the slightest touch With a love so much, you’re by my side It feels so right to lie beside something that it is so fine My heart has no more beats to give Why don’t you stay before you leave? Stay before you leave Stay before you leave Stay before you leave Stay before you leave

Mona Lisa 04:16
Skin feels softer than it was The morning air is cool My coffee’s never been like this before As a general rule I can’t remember why I’m sad But then I go and do A simple movement in an empty room My mind is split in two Feel like a Mona Lisa on a Sunday morning My eyes are smiling but I can’t keep hanging around I know at the most I I only get a sideways glance Before I look away (look away, look away, look away) My back is burned by the sun you know It happens every day I’m shouting but my mouth is closed My eyes are red and blue (Red and blue, red and blue, red and blue) One frozen moment in a memory One lace to tie my shoe Feel like a Mona Lisa on a Sunday morning My eyes are smiling but I can’t keep hanging around You know it’s always got to play its part The heart is a dangerous thing Ten out of ten for getting that right It’s taken out of your hands Curve of the earth No clear line of sight The secret is to understand The light can cut right through And there’s no chance of you forgetting me And I’ll remember you Feel like a Mona Lisa on a Sunday morning My eyes are smiling but I can’t keep hanging around You know it’s always gonna break your heart Mona Lisa on a Sunday morning My eyes are smiling but I can’t keep hanging around You know it’s always gonna break your heart

Don't You 02:37
She is hypnotic and she’s taking me over One false move and she’ll be running for cover ‘Cause she’s so hard to hold but she’s easy to smother She looks through me and she shakes me to my core The signs are bad but the blame lies on my door And she doesn’t care like she’s never not cared before Don’t you – you got it Don’t you – I need it Don’t you – cause if you don’t I won’t do too Don’t you – you got it Don’t you – I need it Don’t you – cause if you don’t I won’t do too One look at her and my mind goes hazy She is the one who is driving me lazy ‘Cause I say yes and she says maybe I’m taking my time And we don’t need to talk about it, live without it Don’t you – you got it Don’t you – I need it Don’t you – cause if you don’t I won’t do too Don’t you – you got it Don’t you – I need it Don’t you – cause if you don’t I won’t do too

Hit And Miss 02:55
Last night we were starting to slide Well I told you once and I told you twice, so whoa! This to me is intolerable When one is all I need Get off your horse and get on your bike You never phone so we never fight, whoa! This machine is just impossible When sweetness can’t succeed She’s a hit, she’s a miss, with a cruel, cruel heart Build it up together then she tears it apart Talking down to me from the very start It’s not the words its the way that you say it, way that you say it Happy endings are out of sight What will you turn into at midnight, whoa! How you burned me down again I don’t know This singer’s got a broken heart And all the flowers in all the parks, whoa! Won’t give this victory to you ‘Cause one is all I need She’s a hit, she’s a miss, with a cruel, cruel heart Build it up together then she tears it apart Talking down to me from the very start It’s not the words its the way that you say it, way that you say it I give up
8.
Lock Me Out 03:32
Stand back, stand clear It’s hard to breathe in this atmosphere Bad drunk, bad day Let all your troubles just slip away Lock me out, send me away ‘Course I’ll cry, try and stay Sleepless, weightless Barge in, and out You say it’s nothing but it’s worth a shout Hands up, make sound Don’t you want to say these things out loud? Lock me out, send me away ‘Course I’ll cry, try and stay Stateless, careless Lock me out, send me away ‘Course I’ll cry, try and stay Don’t stop, hold on
9.
Orbison 03:30
Does it matter, I have nothing, but a burning all around? Can you lead me, to the water? Though I’d rather burn than drown Pouring measures, taking numbers Have I nothing else to do than turn to you? Nothing but the beating of a drum Nothing but the pounding of my blood I’m a man on fire tonight I’m a man on fire, you burn me out Do you think straight, when you’re tied up? Through your wicker arms I shout Getting closer, getting warmer, getting all wrapped up in doubt Are you going? Are you staying? Coz I’m getting tired of waiting For you endlessly Nothing but the beating of a drum Nothing but the pounding of my blood I’m a man on fire tonight I’m a man on fire, you burn me out Do you lie awake as I do, with your master switch you voodoo? Do you dream the dream, or taste the taste Of breath that lingers on your face? The “Big O” spinning in his grave I’m a man on fire tonight I’m a man on fire, you burn me out I’m a man on fire tonight I’m a man on fire, you burn me out
10.
Gabrielle 04:48
Gabrielle, is it true, did you ever really do All the things you wanted to? Gabrielle did you stray, from your grey suburban bed To the stories in your head? Did you fall in love in Fiji? Did you make the whole world care? Did you say goodbye to Moscow? See Australia from the air? Did you punch your weight in good deeds? Are there stories you can share? Vicariously I show that I care Did you see Africa in the morning? Or did you stay right where you were? Did your life become a pattern? Or did you hear the whole world cheer? Gabrielle is it true, that I didn’t notice you On your hopefully life’s debut? Gabrielle, when I dream You have found a kind of peace Though the world would treat you mean Did your life span every ocean In each corner of the land? Was your heart met with devotion? Did you live out all your plans? In the days when we were younger Only children in the dirt And you were always scared of being hurt Did you see, Africa in the morning? Or did you stay right where you were? Did your life become a pattern? Or did you hear the whole world cheer?

We already told you the news when we put out the “Say You Love Me” single – the Scottish group ATTIC LIGHTS has a new album! After making themselves the best news to happen to pop music in recent years, now they’re releasing their second full-length album, “Super De Luxe,” on Elefant Records. Francis Macdonald (TEENAGE FANCLUB, NICE MAN) worked as a producer on the album, as did John McLaughlin, who has also produced groups like ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN and has worked with artists ranging from GLASSVEGAS to the very Lamont Dozier. Jim Lang also collaborated on the production work for the album and he made himself a fully entitled member of the group, led by Kev Sherry and Colin McArdle. And here we have it, with the same name as the jukebox that Tim Davidson, the group’s guitarist, has in his apartment. The jukebox has come to mean a lot to the group, a physical representation of nice, relaxing moments after the intense writing and recording sessions that went into the making of this incredible new album. It’s an energy boost, full of powerful guitars that push the limits with the vitality and the bright, luminous melodies that come from growing up in Glasgow.

“Say You Love Me” is the album’s opening track and is solid proof of all of the previously mentioned qualities. It opens the gates to the flood of potential singles the tremendously entertaining and easy-to-listen-to album is packed full of. Unleashed and epic, but with a delicious 50’s touch in the main melody, it describes the thin line between love and hate, and how one simple gesture can push us from one extreme to the other. It sounds like something that was absorbed from the inspiration of CAMERA OBSCURA who, by the way, along with MOGWAI, had remixed “Bring You Down” on one of ATTIC LIGHTS first singles, giving it that inimitable touch of the Scottish scene we mentioned earlier). “Future Bound” plays with funk and soul to ultimately unleash a melody that’s somewhere between THE BEACH BOYS’ harmonic fantasy and THE LEMONHEADS’ addictive pop. You can’t resist singing along every time with the chorus of the song, and it’s not the only song on the album that’s going to happen with. “Breathe For Me,” which is also available on the advance single, has emotions running high and choruses working as turning points in the song. The appearances and disappearances of guitars that would make Ken Stringfellow himself fall in love and that could appease Alex Chilton’s spirit, are ultimately those final straws that push us over the edge of intense emotions. “Stay Before You Leave” gives us another touch of bouncy, effective soul-pop, with vocal acrobatics that would be the envy of Canada’s SLOAN, while “Mona Lisa” joins the club of unforgettable choruses and sets off alarms for all fans of THE CARS and REDD KROSS.

“Don’t You” goes back to the most ferocious guitars, but without letting go of those harmonies that have occasionally linked the group to TEENAGE FANCLUB and FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE, and that have provoked such warm and positive reviews in magazines as prestigious as Mojo, Uncut, Q, NME, and The Guardian. “Hit And Miss” is incredible, balanced in between the best moments of Nick Lowe at his freshest and THE BOO RADLEYS. It’s a hit that shines with voices that fly to great heights, with the sixties spirit that pushes THE SMALL FACES’ most brilliant compositions. Playing with the title, we can say that this song is all hit and absolutely no miss. “Lock Me Out” is the only slow song on the whole album, a sweet and melancholic sigh that reminds us of TRAVIS – a group that, by the way, ATTIC LIGHTS have shared a stage with several times – dressed for the ball, with elegant and reverb-ed guitars. “Orbison”, a special homage to Roy Orbison, puts us back on the wake of the best power pop, somewhere between a burning Elvis Costello and a red hot THE RASPBERRIES, and pushes our euphoria up to unknown levels. “Gabrielle” closes the album with a touch of THE BEATLES, proving the Scottish band’s ability to sound tremendously contemporary and also show their love for Paul McCartney, while knowing how to wisely assimilate their diverse influences into their arrangements, vocals, and melodies.

This is definitely a major album, with high emotional voltage. It’s one of those albums that lets you believe in the power of music again. This is big news for the Scottish group’s fans, who, after four years of waiting, finally get some new songs. And what amazing songs they are. This is an album that we at Elefant Records are really proud of.
