Intravenous 02:49
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 Intravenous Intravenous Intravenous Intravenous Under my skin I’ve got you again Till everything flows away Intravenous Intravenous Intravenous Intravenous

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

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.
