FORMATS: 7" Single [Red Colour Vinyl] [Limited Edition] / Digital Single

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

“Don’t fall in love” is the second single taken from “Way Better Now,” the second full length album of SPEEDMARKET AVENUE. The self-titled and previous released song of the album has turned itself into a total international indie-pop hit. Steve Lamacq chose this tune as single of the week on his BBC program and music journalists riddled the album with praise as it counted on the magic and wisdom of Jari Haapalainen (Producer of ED HARCOURT, THE BEART QUARTET, THE CONCRETES and CAMERA OBSCURA among others), although to have such a well-rounded full length, it is very important to have terrific songs and SPEEDMARKET AVENUE has plenty of them like the one which is the protagonist of the new single. “Don’t Fall in Love” is an instant classic, a short traditional song, the perfect pop tune with a contagious verse and a dazzling chorus. It comes so close to the in love and out-of-love music of sixties pop groups similar to THE SMITHS, LADYBUG TRANSISTOR, THE RAW HERBS and the early songs of AZTEC CAMERA. On the B side of this red special limited edition vinyl is "Dying in Africa", a heart-rending, intimate and melancholic cover of the Swedish Italian disco electro-pop duo NICOLAS MAKELBERGE.

Johan Lundin and Arvid Ringborg were in charge of putting images together for “Don’t Fall in Love” creating a fun video narrating the typical story of a band playing at the wrong event where they are out of place, a private party with terrible guests who do not jive well with the group.

Track Name: Don't Fall In Love
Don’t fall in love, don’t fall in love, don’t fall
Don’t fall in love, don’t fall in love, don’t fall
I thought we once agreed to stand up tall

Don’t break my heart, don’t break my heart in two
Don’t break my heart, I’ll stay away from you
I’ll stay away from you, don’t break my heart
Listen to your brother, he’s sure smart
Listen to the one who knows the art

What did you become away from me?
What are you awaiting endlessly?
Now when you’re so sick you’re soon to die
(There’s) nothing left for you to lose but time

Oh your heart is on the floor
Tainted blood an open sore
You'd better call off uk tour
Oh your heart is on the floor
Tainted blood ask for more
You'd better walk right out that door

You, the constantly ignored
Find a path you can afford
Should have found it way before

Believe, believe, believe
I’m scared but used to be
Convinced by history
Listen to your brother, he’s sure smart
Listen to the one who knows the art
Track Name: Dying in Africa
Someone I loved turned me down
I didn't feel my head touch the ground
Someone I loved said goodbye
I never knew someone could make me cry
Like this

I, I won't get over you
Even if they're crying in Africa
I, I can't get over you
Even if they're dying in Africa

Everything that you say
It will be held against you now
And everything that I did
Yes it depended on you

Love feels so sweet when you're rejected
Even if they're dying in Africa

I, I won't get over you
Even if they're crying in Africa
I, I can't get over you
Even if they're dying in Africa
