about

New demo track, engineered, mixed and mastered by Termite in our house in Huddersfield.

"Something quite special indeed. Starting off like an old school Young Knives tune, 'Each Tick A Tock' then goes through something of a modern day Arctic Monkeys movement followed up by some Queens Of The Stone Age action and then a Doors-esque breakdown. All this tied together with the soft Northern vocal tones reminiscent of Everything Everything or Dutch Uncles. Termite are exploring their prog side without a doubt but in such a way that it fits in to four and a half minutes and would fit perfectly just after the 1.30 news on BBC 6Music. Truly joyous stuff." - Listen with Monger

lyrics

It was a night where we stood still - a night where we could feel the movements of us all,
And as the sun began to rise the candles lost their light - it wasn't needed any more,

10 seconds lost in all the thrill
each tick a tock that you could deal...

Each morning's suffocating heat, a sign you would retreat into the great outdoors
And as we tripped upon the hill we were rolling with the Stones, and mastering the fall

5 seconds lost in all the thrill
each tick a tock that you would steal...

Recline your seat for me, if you don't mind I'd rather be free
Free to feel, feel the need to see you and I and them and we

With hours drifting past my eyes my thoughts were scattered through the night in the minds of all the people we had met

12 hours lost in all the thrill
each bell a toll for you to feel

Recline your seat for me, if you don't mind I'd rather be free
Free to feel, feel the need to see you and I and them and we
