about

Goodbyes are always sad. And even more so when what you’re saying goodbye to is something you have been emotionally attached to for a long time. We imagine that many of TREMBLING BLUE STARS fans will feel something like what we are feeling right now, a mix of bitterness, for the arrival of the end, and also happiness, to be able to enjoy the new material from Bobby Wratten’s band. “Correspondence” will be the last EP from this British group that has so populated our catalogue for these last years, so much so that they have become emblematic of our label. The “Correspondence” EP will be released in digital format and also as a limited-edition, orange 10” vinyl.

But we’re not going to lick our wounds; we’re going to cherish the joy that listening to these new songs brings us. The EP opens with a house specialty: a remix by Robert Hampson (one of Bobby Wratten’s biggest heroes, front man of bands like LOOP and MAIN) of the songs “Half-Light” and “Outside” (an instrumental version of “Outside Looking Elsewhere”), from their recent “Fast Trains and Telegraph Wires”, into one single song called, “The Light Outside”, and which makes the band’s passion for hazy, evanescent atmospheres clear. “Between Stations” is a brief instrumental piece where the more delicate, precious side of the Brits shines through. “Sunrise on Mars” is a true delicacy, with a sweet pose over fragile programming that evokes that luminous melancholy that only they can portray. “Kidney Bingos” is a cover of WIRE, with vocal collaboration from Gerard “Caesar” McInulty (THE WAKE) and, of course, their beloved Beth. “A Field at Dusk” awakens their more acoustic and organic facet but it still throws itself into ambience, with those feminine choruses that make us think of bands like LOW or MAZZY STAR. Finally, “A Spell of Songs” is a twilight song (curious, at the very least, that those two new songs include the words “sunrise” and “dusk” in their titles), that helps us understand, once again, the enormous beauty to be found in sadness, with those final eloquent minutes of silence.

Because of this, because there is nothing else left to say, we are going to just say one last thing. Thanks, Bobby, thanks for everything, and we’ll see you soon.

Track Name: The Light Outside (Robert Hampson Remix)
Instrumental
Track Name: Between Stations
Instrumental
Track Name: Sunrise On Mars
Floating above it all
Untouchable
I've crossed over
 
I'm never coming down
You can't catch me now
You can't catch me now
 
Absurd little world
Absurd litte earth
 
Floating above it all
The game
The players
The good consumers
 
And there's a sunrise waiting
On another planet
And there's a sunrise
Waiting to be seen
Waiting to be seen
 
Turning off the news
The temporary
The trivial
My connection was never strong
Didn't need to belong
Didn't need to belong
 
Absurd little world
Absurd little earth
 
And there's a sunrise waiting
On another planet
And there's a sunrise
Waiting to be seen
Waiting to be seen
Waiting to be seen
Track Name: Kidney Bingos
Instrumental
Track Name: A Field At Dusk
When the world is closing in
Look up and breathe
Look up and breathe
Day or night
The endless sky
 
You may be lost in the capital
But that world's so small
That world's so small
The sun's just one of a million
 
Don't lose sight of the wonder
Of the wonder
 
Somewhere there's a field at dusk
Bemused at our senseless rush
Somewhere there are evening waves
That climb and slide away
 
You'd never know there was so much more
No-one's got time
No-one's got time
Abandon the chase
Let it leave you behind
 
There are spirits on the rise
Horizons to find
Horizons to find
You'd never know there was so much more
 
Don't lose sight of the wonder
Of the wonder
 
Somewhere there's a field at dusk
Bemused at our senseless rush
Somewhere there are evening waves
That climb and slide away
Track Name: A Spell Of Songs
Crying along to a story
A language she didn't understand
Everyone threw him away
She took his hand
 
Songs of
Love and blood
And prison
Always prison
 
An accordian
He cradled
Handbells on a table
 
Music's gift
A path out of loneliness
And a measure of comfort
 
Estranged from
His mothertown
Everything changed when the wall came down
 
A small apartment of possessions
Passageways for navigation
Coffee grinders, sowing machines
Radios and biscuit tins
 
Flowers for his birthday
Tears for his songs
Everyone threw him away
Everyone was wrong
