“Starting as a piece of gentle acoustic pop, with hints of Jose Gonzalez and Damien Rice before cascading into synth-laden electro is no easy task, Robb makes fusing the two seem easy” .... BBC 6 Music

Track Name: Headstrong
Spiders creep across your skin like tickley fingers
Ice melts down your spinal chord like lights on a highway
Feels like nothing’s going your way, you’re in over your head
Not smart, heart is in the car park pining for home time

You haven’t really lived
You haven’t really lived ‘til you’re far from
The strongest and the wise
The hopeful and the few that lay between
I need my headstrong

Caffeine fuels you when your stressed, messed, chocolate or cinnamon
Irate people in your face waste your only coffee break
Trapped, caved man you’re feeling brave, escape is priority
Sparks fly, cogs and leavers just die, ready for beddy time

You haven’t really lived
You haven’t really lived ‘til you’re far from
The strongest and the wise
The hopeful and the few that lay between
I need my headstrong

Relax, cut yourself a break mate, your mind is a fragile thing
Brain waves crave a little respite and skin needs sunlight

do do do do do do
do do do do do do do do do do

You haven’t really lived
You haven’t really lived ‘til you’re far from
The strongest and the wise
The hopeful and the few that lay between

You haven’t really lived
You haven’t really lived ‘til you’re far from
The strongest and the wise
The hopeful and the few that lay between

I need my headstrong
I need my headstrong
Track Name: Stars
What is this light, that comes from above
Channeling time, channeling life
To see these stars for the first time
A brand new light in the sky

Now we know, yes we know
There is light, there is love
We will stand, we will fall
Still light shines on

I look at one star, pointed and bright
The longer I stare, I’m engulfed by the light
Out of sight in the day
Overwhelmed by light from the sun

Now I know, yes I know
There is light, there is love
We will stand, we will fall
Still light shines on

Now we know, yes we know
There is light, there is love
We will stand, we will fall
Still light shines on

We’ve got the light, we’ve got the light of starts in our hearts
We’ve got the light, we’ve got the light of starts in our hearts
We’ve got the light, we’ve got the light of starts in our hearts
We’ve got the light, we’ve got the light of starts in our hearts
