about

(YNM 007)

Recorded between 2013 and 2015 in Doncaster, Leeds, Jaipur and New Delhi.

The culmination of 30 years of procrastination.

Special thanks to those that have encouraged, contributed or inspired me along the way including (but not limited to): Lou, Lucan, Raven, Elijah, Zak, Jacob, Laura, Allan M, Chris N, Craig M, Derek W, Dorian C, Emma B, Graham S, Josh H, Nick T, Tim P, Tony N, Jill B, Shauna M, Caroline J, Jon K, Adam C and John P.

"Overall “Pulselovers” is a striking, immersive musical experience with a cinematic scope while not over-egging the pudding in terms of electronics and concepts. It uses it’s less is more approach wisely conjuring up something rather large and atmospheric while always leaving space for the listener to conjure her/his own visions. Again it is to it’s credit that over 10 disparate tracks with a wide array of musicians it never comes across as anything less than a band project and to see Pulselovers bloom in a live environment as well the further experimentation a volume 2 could offer up is highly intriguing." Nick Morfitt - Needle in the Strange

"Pulselovers then is an assured, mature and sophisticated début that comes highly recommended for lovers of electronica, hauntology and highly atmospheric, emotionally charged music. This music is alive with possibilities and imagery, its pulse is beating strongly, rhythmically and determinedly here; seek this out." Grey Malkin - The Active Listener

"Stumbled over this irresistible gem courtesy of the latest sampler set from Active Listener – volume 40 – if you are taking notes and not we admit the originally intended cause for our obsessing which again for the interested among you is ‘red eden, white nights’ – but more about that a little later as they say. Instead we followed the links – as you do – to their band camp – who you might ask – why the pulselovers – whose debuting self-titled full length has I’ll admit, been stealing the listening ear all day, an album that pleasingly defies categorization given it appears to skip, hop and jump across a number of generic spectrums refusing to sit and settle into any defined or regimented groove." The Sunday Experience.

Track Name: It's All In The Detail
Although we try to find the key
to find a home for you and me
there’s something wrong we cannot see
The land is vast and holds the prize
of life and hope without the lies, but
beneath our feet the planet dies

The air, the sea, the sun, the land
can give us all we need to stand, but
Like dreams they run right through our hands
And while the truth evades our hearts
Our jewel, it spins among the stars
the light we have will soon depart

There is a truth that we should hear
a truth that hurts, a truth to fear
our way of life will cost us dear
So live your life, ignore the pain
That's washed away by acid rain
If only we could begin again

It's in the detail
Track Name: Saturnalia
And we shall roll the dice of fortune
on meat and fruit shall we feast
And the forces of labour shall serve us
and clothe us in silk from the east

Io Saturnalia

As the goat sails though the night sea
and thoughts of our plight are forgot
Our pleasure soon wanes with the moon
as Macrobius writes of our lot

Io Saturnalia

Yet today we shall drink of the vine
with Bacchus and Saturn we are one
For tomorrow shall we be enslaved
under the gaze of the unconquered sun

Io Saturnalia
Track Name: Spirit
Feel the heat
it leaves my heart
See the light
it’s fading
I long for days
that never start
Just endless night
endless waiting

In the winter night
as the frost descends
Now the year is over
Will this darkness ever end?
In the winter night
as the frost descends
Now the year is over
Will this darkness ever end?

See the sun
a Nordic bloom
It bares no heat
No life force
but breath still waits
within the soil
and bides it’s time
in shadow

In the winter night
as the snow descends
Another year is over
and the darkness never ends
In the winter night
as the snow descends
Another year is over
and the darkness never ends

I look at you
and feel your glow
just come to me
my wildfire
You give me light
when shade prevails
I need you here
forever

In the winter night
when the frost descends
You provide the answer
Will this darkness ever end?
In the winter night
when the frost descends
You provide the answer
Will this darkness ever end?

In the moonlight night
as the stars ascend
You can bring the sunshine
and lead darkness to an end
In the moonlight night
as the stars ascend
You can bring the sunshine
and lead darkness to an end

In the winter night
as the snow descends
Life is all around us
and the spirit never ends
In the winter night
as the snow descends
Life is all around us
and the spirit never ends

In the winter night
as the moon descends
Life is all around us
and the spirit never ends
In the winter night
as the moon descends
Love is all around us
and the spirit never ends
Track Name: Red Eden, White Nights
Leaving again
Always looking forwards
The future’s here today
And we are much stronger than our enemy

Flying again
Up above the storm clouds
The air is crisp and clear
Red Eden, it calls us to infinity

Moving again
Cutting through the jungle
The temple’s drawing near
And love is within our rainbow family

Leaving again
Never looking backwards
White nights are here to stay
Oblivion is our final destiny
Track Name: Flatlands
I’m driving
Down the road
On the Flatlands
In the cold
