Blaze 03:49
Well I got a powerful spirit And I blaze in all my colour All I need is right before me And I got a powerful spirit And I’ll get my teeth sunk in it All I need is right before me Where do we find a way That’s not a part of falling through this Somebody lied to me It’s just the way we’ve always been doing it So I got a powerful spirit And I blaze in all my colour All I need is right before me And I got a powerful spirit And I eat the bread soaked in it All I need is right before me Where do we find a way That’s not a part of falling through this Somebody lied to me It’s just the way we’ve always been doing it And all I had to say was that it’s part of me And all I had to say was that you’re part of me

Black Light 03:54
I reckon I’ll leave right now For a little bit of time with you I reckon I’ll steal your mouth So I can get away and you can feel it I reckon I’ll clear my throat For a little bit of time with you It wasn’t that I left this night It wasn’t that a ghost made you forget it I reckon I’ll leave right now ‘Cos I don’t wanna be with you And now I got you in my blood And it’s the only thing that’s killing me Don’t you wanna get this body back Don’t you wanna get some time back Don’t you wanna have me once more It’s a part of something I forget I just wanna get your body back I just wanna take the time back I just wanna have you once more I just wanna have this all the time I was planning on just running from it And I should have told you I’ve got the words I keep them from you I feel you breaking through my chest But I don’t wanna feel for you And now I see you through these lines And it’s the only thing that’s killing me Don’t you wanna get this body back Don’t you wanna get the time back Don’t you wanna have me all the time I just wanna have you once more I was planning on just running from it I should have told you I’ve got the words I keep them from you You couldn’t break the timing You wanna go back there and revive me I wanna see what you see I wanna wake up with your hands on me I wanna speak the right words It’s hardly better for us than going backwards I wish I’d see what you see I wish you’d come back here to revive me It’s time to kill this thing off To make it something that we were proud of I reckon I’ll leave right now (I was planning on just running from it) I reckon I’ll leave right now (I should have told you) I reckon I’ll take one hit For a little bit of time with you I reckon I’ll leave right now (I’ve got the words I’ll keep them from you)

Blood Red 04:20
I know you come and go Rushing through town like a flood Standing outside my door Now you’re spilling inside here And the curtains close Hits me left and right Hits me down to the floor If we live and die here Give me something strong Won’t you help me find it Sunlight in the storm If we wake up swimming Reaching for the glow I feel you weighing on me And I’ve got to let it go I wish you’d go back home Ripping through town like a storm Still the feeling grows Is it black or white? Is it here, is it? If we live and die here Give me something strong Won’t you help me find it Sunlight in the storm If we wake up swimming Reaching for the glow I feel you weighing on me And I’ve got to let it go Is there something to it A feeling I can’t shake Tie stones to my body Let the river break Here I wake up swimming Reaching for the glow I feel you weighing on me And I’ve got to let it go Let the pain leave my bones Rushing through town like a flood I know you come and go But we’re feeling alive here

City won’t get us, it gets better I could hardly tell, my clothes are wet Turning in my sleep, I’m somewhere else There’s no one here like me The feeling isn’t true And I keep falling through And with me now Biding in the streets that stay at night Come on, just leave, anywhere will do City won’t get us, it gets better A break in my design to keep away From all the noises sick people made I’m waiting for something to shake me up from sleep Anything will do I’m here enough, I’m here enough I’m here enough, I’m here enough I’m here enough, I’m here enough I’m here for you, I’m here enough I’m there enough, I’m there enough I’m there enough, I’m there enough I’m there enough, I’m there enough I’m there for you, I’m there enough I’m there for you I can hardly tell, my clothes are wet Turning in my sleep, I’m somewhere else There’s no one here like me The feeling isn’t true I’m here enough, I’m here enough I’m here enough, I’m here enough I’m here enough, I’m here enough I’m here for you, I’m here enough I’m there enough, I’m there enough I’m there enough, I’m there enough I’m there enough, I’m there enough I’m there for you, I’m there enough I’m there for you City won’t get us, it gets better I’m here enough, I’m here enough I’m here enough, I’m here enough I’m here enough, I’m here enough I’m here for you, I’m here enough I’m there enough, I’m there enough I’m there enough, I’m there enough I’m there enough, I’m there enough I’m there for you, I’m there enough I’m there for you

Keep On 04:55
I fall in all you do A glade in the garden, fog in the dark night I fall to stay with you Bathe in the cold earth Wait for the morning You set the tone and I’ll be alright You set the flame by the doorway Let it be my light You set the tone and I’ll be alright You said the cold couldn’t burn us We’re alright, alright Can I be your fascination all night? ‘Cos you hold the feeling in the room But you want the beat, I need the tune Hoping the pieces, they’ll just fall right Whatever happened, me and you No idea what I’ll do Stand on the corner, hang in the moonlight You cable-tied my ideas Told me to be forthright I’ll go check my eyesight You set the tone and I’ll be alright You set the flame by the doorway Let it be my light You set the tone and I’ll be alright You said the cold couldn’t burn us Can I be your fascination all night? ‘Cos you hold the feeling in the room But you want the beat, I need the tune Hoping the pieces, they’ll just fall right Stand at your door I felt that cold like (You are somebody) Like I’m a ghost inside your room (You are somebody) And I’ll never go back home (You are somebody) ‘Cos I don’t wanna be alone (You are somebody) I gotta keep on myself Keep on, keep on, keep on I gotta keep on myself Just cut the cord and I’ll be alright Just cut the cord, cut the cord Can I be your fascination all night? ‘Cos you hold the feeling in the room But you want the beat, I need the tune Hoping the pieces, they’ll just fall right Stand at your door I felt that cold like (You are somebody) Like I’m a ghost inside your room (You are somebody) And I’ll never go back home (You are somebody) ‘Cos I don’t wanna be alone (You are somebody) I hear the echo down the hall Like you were never there at all Just leave me down here

Atlas 04:35
Out on the run from everything we’ve been through And all we’ve done yeah, everything was for you It’s falling down, all that we held onto I feel it sinking, I feel it breaking through I needed light, moving through the streets ‘til Two in the morning, waking up the neighbourhood That’s when it’s done, there’s nothing to step onto Only the deep blue You told me I would be, out there, Atlas, somewhere You told me I would be, the best that you had ever had You told me I would be, Atlas, for you You told me I would be, out there, with you I get, get, get to the water’s edge I get, get to the water’s edge I get to the water’s edge I hold my breath yeah, I brace myself I get to the water’s edge I get, get, get to the water’s edge I get to the water’s edge I get myself to the water’s edge Out on the run from everything we’ve been through And all we’ve done yeah, all of it was for you I fight it down just moving with the feeling There’s no escaping, I can hear it breathing I feel it outside, moving through the streets ‘til Two in the morning, waking up the neighbourhood That’s when it’s done, there’s nothing to step onto Only the deep blue You told me I would be, out there, Atlas, somewhere You told me I would be, the best that you had ever had You told me I would be, Atlas, for you You told me I would be, out there, with you I get, get, get to the water’s edge I get, get to the water’s edge I get to the water’s edge I hold my breath yeah, I brace myself I get to the water’s edge I get, get, get to the water’s edge I get to the water’s edge I get myself to the water’s edge

Cold Freight 03:40
As I lay in a state by the garden I was keeping a hand on my beer I stole a sip to let loose my designs So I was free, I was free Oh, I feed this state when I’m wide out Just to keep on the path of your love I was stalled in fate, no ideas running wild But honestly, honestly I’m ready for it I’ve got my teeth set And I’m ready for it No lessened ideas And I’m ready for it Unless I don’t get there I stay the course, so I can say what I feel I drift through the layers of my sandwich I float through words Can I get to a state, for a final escape? So forlorn, I get it There are days when my dinner don’t feed me There are streets that don’t take me somewhere But I’m stalled in fate, no ideas running wild But honestly, honestly I’m ready for it I’ve got my teeth set And I’m ready for it No lessened ideas And I’m ready for it Unless I don’t get there I stay the course, so I can say what I feel Torture framed by a fire And I’m ready for it Silence dulled by red wine And I’m ready for it Unless I don’t get there I’m ready for it I’ll stay the course, so I can say what I feel

Fever Highs 03:47
Oh, I built up a fever just sitting out the back out there Won't you come and hold me for a moment Stuck around the pool I grew up in And through I waded Won't you help me find a way There's something so fierce about the back of your tongue, I I was just waiting for your orbit The noise that I was making, forgot that I was calling I'm calling, I'm calling, I'm calling out c..., c..., c... Oh, right before the tide went Took me from the branches Cut me there, in open air I just let it happen I'm all out of focus And I'm all out of pain There's nothing there, just open air I'm falling with the rain So lock jaw and pick my face I sit and think about my father He's just another feather for my armour Check the bible, check my wallet, another tip for my survival I'm dolling out, keep dolling out and draw it in like water now Oh, right before the tide went Took me from the branches Cut me there, in open air I just let it happen I’m all out of focus And I'm all out of pain There's nothing there, just open air I'm just falling with the rain A hammer for A hammer for the pain Cut me there, in open air And I just let it happen You, you, you, you lost it You gotta get out of there Leaving the bedroom bare Oh, you, you, you, you, honey you lost it You gotta get out of there Leaving the bedroom bare Oh, you, you, you, you, you vanished before my loving Vanished before my loving Vanished before my loving, loving oh You, you, you, you, you vanished before my loving Vanished before my loving Vanished before my loving, loving oh You, you, you, you, you vanished before my love Vanished before my loving Vanished before my loving, loving, loving oh

Rear View 03:55
Have enough faith for love, enough faith Have enough faith for love, enough faith I have enough faith for love, enough faith Have enough faith for love, enough faith And in a distant fire There is a burning for you And in my cold desire I am frosted through In every thread I find I tie a bow here for you So you can stride out So you can find some ground Where’s the light appearing For the love I’m feeling Give your face and nothing else High up on the ceiling Shimmer down revealing Broken pieces, I will piece them back myself I took a trip last night To swim in arctic waters We’re all tightrope walkers You see me tumble down Where’s the light appearing For the love I’m feeling Give your face and nothing else High up on the ceiling Shimmer down revealing Broken pieces, I will piece them back myself Have enough faith for love, enough faith Have enough faith for love, enough faith I have enough faith for love, enough faith Have enough faith for love, enough faith

about

Scroll over song titles for lyrics.

The follow up album to 2018’s Islands part 1, Islands part 2 serves to complement and expand on No Mono’s haunting debut. This iteration sees percussion take on a bigger role. The BPMs are increased and the energy at times borders on frantic, but there’s also a swagger.
Where part 1 relished in being a little blurry around the edges, suspending the listener in an unsettling soundscape, part 2 pulls into jarring focus.
Percussion is used to bewilder - at times frantic, scattered or glitchy. Snowdon’s vocals are less tender, as he battles to find connection and empathy. Yet despite the eerie energy, there is always an alien beauty to the whole, and ultimately a faith in keeping hope.
