Let’s call this Middle East pop! This EP just came out in January. there is such a feel in the music here. I love the controlled frenzy of it and the exotic flair it has. I’m looking forward to exploring the other flavours of this band!

Lyrics here, more below:
Oh ay oh
Yeah, yeah 3 times
Oh ay oh

Do you want to sing
Across the bedroom
Your fix made on the car paid
With your head down
In your hands now

You racing to the doctor
So fried, excited and blue
Your head’s down
In your hand’s now

Blue’s pounding harder
Attempts go further, further
Are you prepared to finish?

With your head down
And your mask on
They left you on it, and dazed
Corner of the bedroom

Oh ay oh
Yeah, yeah 2 times
Oh ay oh

As you keep dancing, dancing
Your world is turning, cruising
Your heart beats faster, faster

Sundown in an eggshell
Safe in your ivory tower
The world becomes your reason

Oh ay oh
Yeah, yeah 2 times
Oh ay oh

Yeah, yeah
Don’t you sleep with your man oh
ohhhhhh
Oh are you all alone?
ohhhhhh
Don’t you sleep with your man oh
ohhhhhh
Oh are you all alone?

I did the best I could with the lyrics. Not sure I was close on several lines so corrections are welcome. My overall impression is that this is a story of perpetual bad choices. Someone who makes disasterous relationship choices, sinks into darkness in between. And I feel like the end is try to say stop, take some time and figure it out. And even if that is all wrong, I love the song.
