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

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

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

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.
