about

Only available in digital format!!

To talk about HELEN LOVE these days is to talk about inexhaustible energy, about infinite youth, about the most iconoclastic cheekiness we can imagine. After five albums (three compilations and two official albums) and close to twenty singles, we get “Atomic”, the advance single from what is going to be their upcoming album on Elefant Records, “Day-Glo Dreams”. The album will be marked by the move toward eighties-styled synth-pop, accentuating the group’s most techno-pop facet, though without leaving behind that explosive punk spirit that bursts into powerful little pills.

The title-track of this digital single, “Atomic”, is proof of what we were saying before: it has an unforgettable chorus, marked by bubbling synthesizer lines in a story of teenage love that will make fans of THE HUMAN LEAGUE and SILICON TEENS swoon. The remaining two songs on the digital single are both previously unreleased tracks. The first song, “A Giant Kiss”, goes in exactly the opposite direction, following along the lines of the girl-groups from the sixties, somewhere between THE SUPREMES and THE SHANGRI-LA’s. It’s irresistible and super catchy, with those “oh oh ohs” that were born to be hummed. It’s a rare bird in the group’s discography and it shows their versatility and that, whatever style they choose to work with, they are always spot on with the melodies, and manage to keep their immediacy intact. “Judy Don’t Dance” uses soul and dance music to prove to us once again what we were just saying. Light-footed strings, danceable rhythms, and distorted guitars compose the cocktail of elements that come together in the most unpredictable way to make another perfect hit.

So now the only thing left to do is wait for the imminent arrival of “Day-Glo Dreams”. We are impatient.

Track Name: Atomic
Two hearts beat as one
School's out, and summer's just begun
What a feeling I get
I think our futures are set

I'll meet you outside The Spar
When I have finished my tea
I'd better watch no ones following me

Don't tell your mum and I won't tell my dad
That when we are together it all goes atomic
Just take my hand cos they won't understand that
When we are together, our world turns atomic

Two hearts beat as one
The story of our lives has just begun
They'll never keep us apart
We made this vow from the start
I'll meet you down by the subway with my heart on my sleeve
I'll be sure nobody's following me

Don't tell your mum and I won't tell my dad
That when we are together it all goes atomic
Just take my hand cos they won't understand that
When we are together, our world turns atomic

Stood on the steps, of the town hall this morning
Watching the buses go by
And I wish I could be, like the people around me
With nothing to fear or hide

Two hearts beat as one
The hurtful things they said can't be undone
There's nothing left for us here
They made it perfectly clear
I'll meet you down by the station where the coaches all leave
I'll make sure, nobody's following me

Don't tell your mum and I won't tell my dad
That when we are together it all goes atomic
Just take my hand cos they won't understand that
When we are together, our world turns atomic
Track Name: A Giant Kiss
I kissed my baby by the apple tree
It was as natural and easy as ABC
He carved my name at the perfect height
And the best thing about it
He spelt it right

He said “come on baby, we were meant to be”
Like bread and butter
Strawberries and cream
He took my hand and he held it tight
I put my sunglasses on cos it was too bright

Oh oh oh oh

I kissed my baby by the apple tree
It was as natural and easy as ABC
When the blossom falls
And the cuckoo calls
There'll be sherbet fountains and waterfalls

He took my hand and he held it tight
We walked downtown on a Monday night
He told me “baby, there's a place to be”
That's right beside him on a pink settee

Oh oh oh oh

I can't let go of your candy love
Come and give it all to me
I can't let go of your candy love
Come and give it all to me

Cos any day or night you’re the perfect sight
And I love love love you

Oh oh oh oh

He said “come on baby, we were meant to be”
Like bread and butter
Strawberries and cream
He took my hand and he held it tight
I put my sunglasses on cos it was too bright

Oh oh oh oh
Give me a kiss, a giant kiss

Oh oh oh oh
Give me a kiss, a giant kiss
Track Name: Judy Don't Dance
She moves her head to the 4/4 beat
But Judy don't dance
She claps her hands and she stamps her feet
But Judy don't dance

Cos Judy
Judy don't dance
Cos Judy
Judy don't dance

She'll swing her hips and her fingertips
But Judy don't dance
She'll stand all night in a pure white light
But Judy don't dance

Cos Judy
Judy don't dance
Cos Judy
Judy don't dance

You'll never get her dancing right on the beat wo oh oh
You'll never get her dancing right on the beat wo oh oh

Cos Judy
Judy don't dance
Cos Judy
Judy don't dance

You'll never get her dancing right on the beat!
