Something's coming. Swimming through the waters, up from the deep. Poisoning, ripping, tearing, feeding. Feeding on my fears. Feeding on conflict and drama and pain. Something's coming. An oil slick of misguided intention. An unacknowledged violence. An unfettered buzzing swarm of control. Something's coming. Brittle, burned flakes of passion turned to ash. A form made of embers of rage and denial Crouching on my chest and pushing and pushing Until the breath is squeezed out of me. Something's coming. A breaking. A sundering. A reckoning. Something's coming. © Releaux. All rights reserved.

I close my eyes and the lights appear I watch them and wish you were here It's only time, time separating us I wonder why as I gather dust And the lights all spin while my life grows thin Paper dolls with the edges burned I think back wondering what I've learned The same mistakes, same safe and narrow path Footprints lead away from the aftermath And the lights all shine, but my life's not mine They shine - suggestions of color fading through shades of grey They shine - cold and indifferent, but with me every day They shine - floating, moving, always so far away They shine I close my eyes and the lights are there Offering different paths if I'd only dare Shadows call as I fall asleep I'd risk it all, but the water's deep Could I learn to swim as the lights go dim? © Releaux.

Connections everywhere and not a single soul around me Floating in the air, the messages appear I understand, but I don’t understand I walk this land, but only ghosts are here Words are everywhere and not a single word comes to me Falling from the air the memories appear I understand that I don’t understand I rule this land where only ghosts are near Water everywhere and not a single drop flows through me Vanishing mid-air, the memories appear I understand that I won’t understand I leave this land that only ghosts can hear

about

Releaux’s debut album, 42403, explores the dramatic advancement of technology over the last several decades. The title track channels cold-war spy-craft and mysterious “numbers stations” into a cryptic puzzle. Other tracks reference software development, networking, electronics, vintage computing, gaming, and even a nod to homicidal artificial intelligences like HAL and GLaDOS.

42403 moves hypnotically through moody, bass-heavy ambient techno, Berlin school washes and precision, and sweeping film score soundscapes including Tyrell’s Balcony, an homage to the original Blade Runner soundtrack. Twin contemplative ballads introspectively examine the personal fears that keep so many creative dreams from reaching a wider audience, and the ironic isolation our increasingly connected world has engendered.

Recommended for fans of Vangelis, Jean-Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk, Boards of Canada, Tangerine Dream, The Orb, The Future Sound of London, Global Communication, Orbital, Aphex Twin, Wendy Carlos.

Note: This album has been sequenced with crossfades between several of the tracks. For optimal enjoyment, please listen on a device supporting gapless playback.
