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

As always, here at Elefant Records, we are on the lookout for any new adventures that come from Amelia Fletcher and Rob Pursey. Together, and with other components, they have been the protagonists of some of the best indie-pop songs in the last 30 years, whether it’s fronting TALULAH GOSH, HEAVENLY, MARINE RESEARCH or TENDER TRAP. Now, their new project together is here, and it’s called THE CATENARY WIRES. And in advance of the album that will be released in June on 10 inches Mini-LP and CD formats, we have a digital Single called “Intravenous.” This time, we have an acoustic piece that confirms the continuously more mature sound of their music. But, nobody jump to conclusions. In this barer, stripped down format, their melodies sound more heavenly than ever, close to groups like Laura Veirs, Hope Sandoval and MOJAVE 3.

“Intravenous”, is a good introduction to the band, its addictive chorus capturing something somehow universal. It tells the story of resignation and the truth about love, its suffering, and specifically the intensity that these limitations give us. As a gift we get “You Save Me From Myself”, an unreleased track that won’t be included on their album. The lyrics of this song, and Amelia’s voice crumbling over the sparseness of the arrangement, make it sound especially resonant and personal.

Barely contained sensitivity, songs especially appropriate for people who live life with passionate intensity, but at the same time with subtlety and simplicity. In short time, so much more.

Track Name: Intravenous
Intravenous
Nothing ever comes between us
It's the only way that we know

It demeans us
See-through pipes and plastic levers
But I'll gasp for breath if it goes

Will it last for ever?
Is it an eternal thing?
Nothing lasts for ever
So will we start suffering?
Suffering

Intravenous
Intravenous
Intravenous
Intravenous

True believers
Trust this faith will never leave us
It's the only way that we know

Mars and Venus
Pull so hard but not so grievous
To leave us spinning all alone

Will it last forever?
Is this an eternal thing?
Nothing lasts forever
So will we start suffering?
Suffering

Under my skin I’ve got you again
Till everything flows away

Track Name: You Save Me From Myself
It is uncanny
How you can see right inside of me
One word left hanging
Tells you all you need to know for free

And what you see is not always good and not always kind
I never said I'd be everything you hoped you would find

You make me tell you
In words the things you already know
How my heart wanders
Away from light towards dark shadows

And what you see is not always good and not always kind
I never said I'd be everything you hoped you would find

But you save me from myself
I hate to make you be so stern
But I'm a walking disaster

Oh you save me from myself
I hear you slipping out the door
As I lie crying on the floor
And hoping you’ll be home once more

Don't make me spell it out
I hate that flames like this one still burn
Help me to put it out
Before the point hits of no return

Oh what you see is not always good and not always kind
I never said I'd be everything you hoped you would find

But you save me from myself
I hate to make you be so stern
But I'm a walking disaster

Oh you save me from myself
I hear you slipping out the door
As I lie crying on the floor
And hoping you’ll be home once more
