Swirling synths, spanish guitar, dance beats and chocolate melting vocals
Melodies, harmonies and hooks. Life and love deconstructed. Reflecting the toils and troubles of politics, people and personal experience.
Lacking the financial resources of Musk, Branson and Bezos I was nevertheless still keen on joining the current space race. I've just managed to sneak in and launch this little Pocket Rocket before any of them. Unlucky guys. The view from here is amazing! Hope you enjoy.
A kind of cinematic style electronic sinfonietta (if that makes any sense!)
THE LIGHT BEYOND
Even in the depths of the void, there is always the light beyond...
REACH OUT (FURTHER)
INTO THE FRAY
Feels like a storm is brewing.
HEAR THESE WORDS
A song without lyrics
Just when I thought it couldn't get any stranger, Jab Jealousy set in. Whatever next?! :)
SIX OF ONE
Six of One is a jaunty, happy go-lucky kind of tune inspired by early 80s electro beats.
FOUR HOURS TO LA PALMA
Palm trees swaying on a warm summer evening. Who couldn't do with a bit of that right now? Soak it right in with Four Hours to La Palma...
BURNING RAIN FROM MARS
Life on mars? Forget it. Burning rain? Absolutely. Complete with ash, dust and more radiation than a typical large building in Dungeness. Hope you enjoy this latest tune...
FLYING KITES ON PLUTO
There is not much to do on Pluto. It's cold, the wifi is sporadic, and the light too poor for playing cricket. However, it is very windy, which is ideal for flying kites...
SINGING RINGS OF SATURN
Distant alien voices reaching across millions of miles of empty space. It can only be the...
TREES OF MERCURY
Our journey into deep space continues. Who would have thought organic life could exist on the scorched surface of Mercury?
SLIP TO THE MOON
How did I get here..but more importantly, how am I going to get back?
Slabs of piano with orchestral beats
TIME WILL TELL
What will things look like after so long in lock down? Only...
F3CK TH2S SH1T
A strangely positive dance tune to get through these times. I just couldn't think of a more eloquent title.
Springtime often throws tumultuous weather events as the battle reaches its climax between for forces of winter and summer. Thankfully, with the solar cycle on its side, it is warmth and sunshine that usually prevail sometimes resulting in that unusual phenomena: the double rainbow.
BABY FACED ASSASSIN
A slowly building techno hook that might just swipe the smile from the baby faced assassin...
PAPER WRAPS ROCK
STILL WATERS (RUN DEEP)
WITH STRINGS ATTACHED
A stringed symphonic dance tune
FOR WHOM THE BELLE TOLLS
Taking cow belles into deep, melodic techno...
MARY JANE (ELECTRICITY AND THUNDER MIX)
THE PRIEST AND THE SINNER
MANNEQUIN (UNDRESSED MIX)
She's got fire, desire and passion running through her. But who will steal her away and take her home?
IT AIN'T TOO FAR TO FALL - FOR THE FALLEN MIX
The future is yours. Reach Out and take it.
WORDS UNSPOKEN PARTS 1 AND 2
STARS, BLACK HOLES AND THINGS
LIONESS - DARK TO LIGHT MIX
SMOKE AND MIRRORS
Unleash the inner you. Because everyone loves a bit of S&M.
The path to happiness takes courage...
IN BETWEEN THE LINES
Fake news, fake tan, US president, dangerous man
Who says you shouldn't mix politics with pop?
IT AIN'T TOO FAR TO FALL
Because falling down can feel good
The world is an amazing place though it's always difficult put our own fears and tribulations into perspective.
BIRDS OF FIRE
Can anyone stand up against the Birds of Fire?
A fever to dance for. Our first tune featuring Jig Sta as guest vocalist.
LORD GIVE ME STRENGTH
Jig Sta on lead vocals supported by Jason Levy on acoustic guitar with backing vocals from Lucy.
LORD GIVE ME STRENGTH - TIM'S HYDE GATE REMIX
Dedicated to Tim, a man I found attempting suicide, because we all need strength and to keep moving on.
IN THE MOMENT
Do you ever feel your Facebook friends are having more fun than you? That you don't have the courage to say how you really feel? That it's sometimes difficult to stay in the moment.
WHO ARE THE ALLIES?
Singer, song writer and arranger
A resident of Winchester, Lucy met Nev at their local street party over cake tasting (his mum thought her lemon potato cake was delicious). Lucy draws inspiration from the search for King Alfred's bones and the perfect watercress. She provides lyrical leadership, vocals and harmonies that drive our musical journey.
Guitar, electronic stuff and song writer
Neville is so rock and roll he once threatened to drop his guitar in a stream (see pic below). He creates the Allies musical soundscape.
GREGORY BELL AKA JIG STA
Everything visual, vocals
Ideas, inspiration and energy. Greg is front man and lead singer for the band Out of Exile. In his downtime he provides vocals, design, video, photographic and musical support to the Allies.
Guitar, electronic wizardry, songwriting
Jase is an old school mate of Neville’s and they developed a shared understanding of music when discussing Terry Hall (still one of the most underrated UK songwriters). Ever the eccentric, there is an urban myth that Jason once attended a party with a tea cosy on his head ("it's true" Nev).
