Inspired by Adam Curtis' Can't get you out of my head documentary series sonically and thematically. That man finds a lot of gorgeous dystopian music.

The tail end (hopefully, dear lord) of a pandemic seems like as good a time as any to try and make an amount of sense out of it all. Playing with a bit more distortion and pitching wonkiness here than my usual.

...Still working on learning how to do a proper chorus though, feel like most of my songs just end off in some instrumental without having a verse/refrain structure.


Thanks for the FP ^.^


I've been so contained

in this box in my mind

it crushes spirit then bone

spirit then bone

spirit then bone

spirit then

In a lack of transience

it corrodes inward to build the wall

and I am stuck here

isolated in the navel gaze

a flower grown under a lamp

knows only its own shade

and the world is warm

till the lights go out and your fake sun is gone

It was silver and gold

and all kinds of red

but the second you closed your eyes

the tide rose and you held on for your life

One of the best tracks on newground. Keep it up!

Okay what the hell dude... where did all this talent come from? This shit is so deeply up my valley I feel kinda violated.

Are you putting together an EP or an album or something?

Big fan. Five stars easy.

Bitbeak responds:

That is the nicest and strangest compliment I've ever gotten haha

I put out an EP not too long ago here on NG with all the tracks downloadable for free here and on bandcamp:

Thanks so much, man ^.^

i can use it in a geometry level?

Bitbeak responds:

Go for it!

This sounds pretty good my guy, you thought of making a song with more of a pastor approach? I think with your type of singing it might work.

Bitbeak responds:

I gotta plead ignorance on this one, I can't say I know what that means musically. Glad you liked it though :)

(feel free to shoot me a dm of music or songs like what you're talking about, I be curious)

pretty good!
