about

Having toured their synths and samplers from Hanoi to Helsinki on the live circuit for over a decade, this trio have crafted their own refreshing sound - and it's not what you'd expect from an electronic act.

This album is more stripped-back than we're used to from Minuit, allowing the crisp, percussive songs to shine through.

Following the example of onepercentcollective.org, one-percent of album sales goes to the Kenbe La Foundation in Haiti. Kenbe La (the Haitian phrase for 'Never Give Up') helps disadvantaged children get the education and support they need to have a life kenbelafoundation.org

Merci beaucoup, Fa'fetai lava, Thankyou - Minuit

Track Name: Last Night You Saw This Band
Last Night You Saw This Band
and you came running home to me
it changed the way you thought, you said
it changed the way you think

you danced around the room,
pulled me up onto the couch
my pile of drinks fell over,
all the goodness running out

Last night you saw this band
and you came running home to me
it had all the bells and whistles
it taught you how to be free

you said that nothing matters,
there’s only grace and disgrace
you kindly didn’t notice
as the tears ran down my face

I can be sorry as well
Track Name: Book Of The Dead
Book of the Dead
I wake up in the night
the moon is full
the fear is bright
these little creatures got a fright
I don’t know what it is I should do
I said I don’t know what it is I should do

Open the book of the dead
I write my name
Give me your pen
I said hold your breath now and count to ten
I said I don’t think I can do this again
I said I don’t think I can do this again
I said I don’t think I can do this again
I said hold your breath now and count to ten
I said I don’t think I can do this again

I don’t think I can do this again
I said hold your breath and count to ten
I don’t think I can do this again
Hold your breath now
Track Name: Islands
Islands
We gotta go, we gotta get off this island
follow Kupe on water sparkling like diamonds
we gotta go, we gotta get off this island
follow Kupe on water sparkling like diamonds.
Turangi Valley she was counting her chickens
I didn’t steal it but he said a pig’s missing.
The vaka’s ready we migrate in the morning
the crops are picked and now the weather is warming.
Come on we’ve got to go.
There’s diamonds don’t you know
We throw them on the water
There’s diamonds don’t you know
We throw them on the water
Track Name: What We Know
Bodies washed up on the broken shore
I’m knowing things I never knew before
I hear the hiss, and I hear the roar
This is what we know
Ohway, this is what we know
Daily use of archimedes’ screw
Don’t forgive them they know what they do
They say they do it all for me and you
This is what we know
Oily bodies washed up on the shore
I’m seeing things I never saw before
I hear the hiss, I hear the roar
This is what we know
Ohway, this is what we know
Tunnelling under the mountains back,
Haul up the bones for us thick and black
Ohway, this is what we know
Track Name: Good Ol' Days
I take the pride, I take the fall
In the good ol’ days of the bad old dreams
It doesn’t matter anymore
In the good ol’ days of the bad old dreams
I read the writing on the wall
In the good ol’ days of the bad old dreams
I took my pen and added more
In the good ol’ days of the bad old dreams
I love and hate and want you all
In the good ol’ days of the bad old dreams
I don’t know what you’re fighting for
In the good ol’ days of the bad old dreams
I’ll give a hundred dollars to
The one who smiles and says it’s true
Who would have thought it’d be us two
Who ended up scraping through
The wreckage that we knew
A rosy coloured hue
Who would have thought it’d be us two
Throw your arms
It doesn’t matter anymore
What are you fighting for
Does it matter anymore
Track Name: The Love That Won't Shut Up
The sun’s setting low and I’m diving into it
I lost my soul but I found my spirit
And I don’t care what ya done done
And I can see where ya run run
And I can’t hear those drums no more, no more
And I can’t hear those drums no more (x 2)
Oh lala, I didn’t say anything
Oh lala, I didn’t do anything
And I don’t care what ya done done,
what you say, or where you come from
I can’t hear them, no I can’t hear those drums no more.
Track Name: Ghost
Step into my parlour and tell me your dreams
Let them be spectacular shiny bright things
That will glow in the dark and will light my way clean
For the love of the one, for the love of the boy
Take two in the morning and I’ll bury my pride
I’ll sit in the corner there’s no charge for my time
And bring out your dead and the darkness you hide
for the love of the one for sheer love of the boy

Step into my parlour I’ll tell you no lies
Forget incognito, discard all disguise
When you wake in the morning you see in my eyes
For the love of the one, for sheer love of the boy
You say stars align, ha! can’t you see these stars are blind
Remember moments we thought we were humankind
Read from the script all your memorised lines
For the love of the one, for sheer love of the boy
I’m your ghost, oh I am your ghost
I tell you no lies, discard all disguise
I see in your eyes, I am your ghost
Track Name: Stories for Boys
The world, is now ruled by men,
in leather shoes, who’s hearts
need a good breaking
souls a-penetrating
liars on the manly mission
of global submission
should they be resisted, I said yes
But you are my darkest secret yet, I said yes
But you are my darkest secret yet
Track Name: Heaven
Baby I can never tell, if this is heaven or hell, anymore
And the only thing I hear baby, I’ve come to fear baby
Loud and clear, baby loud and clear
Track Name: Warheads
How shall we settle this, let’s settle this with bombs.
I think of you my darling, when the warheads start to fall
Track Name: Sisters on the Balcony
There were sisters on the balcony who called: “hey soldier”
There were brothers on the battlefield who wouldn’t get older
There were people locked in carriages yelling: “is this over?”
Talk me through it is this how it’s meant to be?
Track Name: Sit Down Beside Me
Breeze rustles coconut trees my dear
white sandy beaches run to oceans clear
my dear, sit down beside me here, my dear
sit down for a moment here
