about

OK so it's a single and not an album but you gotta start somewhere right! Well Joeys Coop started by recruiting a who's who of the 1980s and 90s Sydney indy scene. Not content with becoming a tribute act to the bands they made their names in these guys play all new all original material of the highest quality. These two tunes are a perfect taste of what they deliver - melodic, powerful, haunting and memorable songs. Hope you enjoy and want to come back for more.

Recorded at Alberts Studio and produced by singer / songwriter Wayne Connolly (Welcome Mat, Knievel).

Track Name: Take Me Away
TAKE ME AWAY

In your cities down on the street
Move to the rhythm of all those feet
Feed your distraction with your conceits
The artificial rises and is complete

All your houses and all your rooms
Are bathed in the light of a flickering blue
Through the ether and on our screens
The banality before us is so obscene

Oh take me away, take me away from here
Take me away, take me away from here my friend

Through these valleys and on this beach
I move to the rhythm of a world so sweet
In this forest and through these trees
I move to the sound of a sweet melody

Oh take me away, take me away to here
Take me away, take me away to here my friend

Oh take me away, take me away to here
Take me away, take me away to here my friend
Take me away, take me away to here
Take me away, take me away to here my friend

In this valley and in these trees
I get to see all these stars for free
Through this forest and through these trees
I move to the sound of a sweet melody
Track Name: Down (To The Sea)
DOWN (TO THE SEA)

Rumours of a breeze upon your skin
Truth is its summer heat that you're breathing in
Somnolence is the only world you know
Languid is her breath as she moves slow

Secrets, secrets that lovers tell
And little lies those little lies you know them all too well
Brightness, brightness is all that you can see
The future is now, where you want to be

Run through the forest running through the trees
Fast through the shadows and light, rush into the sea
Wash away your secrets, wash away your sins
Loose yourself in the cool embrace of all that you have been

I was dreaming that I was dreaming in my dream
Babylon, oh Babylon I hear you singing to me
Somewhere other than awake, but not quite asleep
Forever and the blue sky stretching out before me, calling me

Run through the forest running through the trees
Fast through the shadows and light, rush into the sea
Wash away your secrets, wash away your sins
Loose yourself in the cool embrace of all that you have been
