    uniE608 Waterlilies
    A demo of a new song; which is, ironically, one of my oldest songs that I've changed over years and years and now I'm finally happy with it. The song will feature on my new album, 'The Whisper & The Hurricane' of which all the tracks describe some dark part of the human condition. Specifically to Waterlilies, it focuses on an individual who is desperate and/or devoted. When thinking of the song, two images appear to me - one of a couple watching the destruction of their city from a vantage point on a hill or something similar - the other being a real image of a kissing couple in the midst of a riot in Vancouver, Canada. The narration could be interpreted in two ways: 1, The Narrator has lost somebody close to them, and the desperate sound of the song is a metaphor for the fragility of life and grief. 2, The Narrator is totally disconnected with reality and has been rejected by somebody that they are infatuated with; and the desperate and over the top sound of the song describeWW
    uniE603 London Will Fall
    I began to write this track in March 2011; over four years later I've finally got a version that I'm happy with. I've never worked so long on one song without releasing it, so it's nice to finally have it. The song will be the last track on the upcoming album. It's about becoming so mad that one crosses a line and commits a truly terrible crime; hence the over the top nature of the song. It's also a good live favourite - my band usually finish with this one. #audio #London Will Fall #Matt #Hartless #Gypsy #Ska #Ska #Gypsy #C #minor #Nobodys #perfect #Over #the #top #Exuberant #Ridiculous #Psychopathic #Psychopath #Pyschopathy #Explosion #Falsetto #Falsetto #ScreamWW
    uniE603 The Science Of Attachment
    An insane gypsy rock song about mental illnesses such as Attachment Disorder and Psychopathy. Lyrics: I need a miracle, or something magical To prove that there is more to life than this But no-one can hold a candle to me tonight I'll intimidate you with a show of my might But that's hypocrifal, so it settles down; the pall The wool over your eyes, into your ears Til the argument you had disappears tonight You're solely here to amuse and delight You want to stay in, can't believe what I'm hearing You've stopped and burned out, reputation is smearing You slander our names with your savage tongue We destroy all the proof and beat you black and blue Oh you've not seen it yet, but don't you forget that We love you, we love you my dear. I need time to assess your worth if you're not excess And sterilise the wound keeps me in the game It seems such a shame I need someone to blame tonight I will give you all such a fright You've not thought this through no attention to detail It's crumbling down, your position is fetal so You slander our names... We're tired of the lies we won't fight any more We can't help you now; you've done things we abbhor so it's Nice that you care, but I'm past your support So you're struck off the list, you can take me to court But I know it won't stick; I've had it secured Now live off paltry means for ever more And I won't entertain your return and instead I'll burn through the canvas and tear out the threads All with little hope that I won't soon be dead Still they'll whisper my name with notorious dread And I'll never know, though God knows I've tried I've taken account, I've snuck and I've spied I've tried to forgive but I'm not sure that's right For I've not lived a day in the whole of my life You slander our names...

    uniE603 Victory
    A seven-and-a-half-minute epic using a lot of synthesis and processing. The song is 'about' being stuck in a society, afraid of humanity's shortcomings, and your own future. It's a tune. It's also the first recorded track I've published where I play my guitar with a violin bow. #audio #Electronic Rock #Victory #Matt #Hartless #Humanity #Dystopian #Orwellian #Shortcomings #society #synthesizer #bowed #guitar #delay #slide #distortion #sequence #MIDIWW
    uniE603 Panem Et Circenses
    Matt Hartless song from the album, 'Our Last Days In The Sun' - one of the punchier songs of the set, has always been used so far by the band to open with. This song sits nicely in the middle of the Matt Hartless spectrum of style - an alternative rock somewhere between the ambient and the ridiculous upbeat - possibly closer to the ridiculous... #audio #Alternative #Matt #Hartless #Panem #Et #CircensesWW

    A dead chilled out track about happiness and childhood. The title is a reference to Citizen Kane.
