No Beyond

by Bound

supported by
FLESH MECHANIC Discovered these guys after hearing the first single of their upcoming LP, and it was so good it sent me here. Influenced mainly by shoegaze and post-metal, this album is perfectly paced, building up from lingering melodies and soft vocals to huge riffs and thundering drums. It's an interesting and engaging record where I held my breath each second, excited to hear what comes next, and on a repeated listen I let myself get carried by the sound waves. Company is easily the highlight of the album. Favorite track: Company.

Uvaozio Great surprise. Post-rock meets shoegaze building sad and comforting tunes. I love Bound Favorite track: Now That It's Over.

Agent K Bound covers a lot of musical genres within their aural soundscapes.
Something for Gazers/Post-Metal/Rockers.
Extremely Atmospheric material moving from surreal to full on power all within the sonic fabric of each tune.
Compelling & stunning song composition.
This is one to play from go all the way through.
A nice pair of headphones will help illuminate the nuances contained in this set.
Ethereal Boy/Girl vocal harmonies are heavenly.
A Standout for any genre for best of 2018! Favorite track: Company.
My Album of the year 2018

Only Us 05:16
Autumn's over Friends have come and gone We're still holding fast Before the dawn Face to face No fate or faith to trust There is no beyond It's all only us And though the water may fill our eyes We burn inside Arise and take the night
Sow the Salt 06:34
The lost and found are scattered On this ground By and by We ossify From the middle You can’t see the bounds It’s the sky The growth has clothed Let us rest our bones Buried all And sowed the salt Now it’s clear Where all things go From here It’s the sod The road is long Those days seem far Another life And yet What’s back there It's all right here Lost in time Round and around this race The pull of this place We fly – and salt this town dry
Currents 05:17
I am way out Way out of what I know It may now show But I know I've been way out Way out of line And time It overflows And I know It happens that I'm here Out in the deep Because the current caught No choice and no design A circumstance Allegiance Chance No matter what I find It happens that it is the way it is Because I always am Performing what I must While I pretend It begins again Each time it ends And I intend to trust But I am way out Way out of what I know It may now show But I know
Hold 04:23
Only sometimes There's a glimmer there But it's enough to hold us here And only always I fear I could have done more After all the cost that's sunk It makes you want It pulls you under Holding the hope till it's gone It may be already over But it makes you want Always wonder Holding a heart for too long Deep in the throes Never closer To the things you hold
A Way 05:39
What's enough To offer of ourselves Where's the bluff The chance for something else Try to count the raindrops The over-under Try to find a way Rise, stand and falter Hold on longer To devise a way A way we go Find me at the table Pretend we're able To define a way Try to split the wager A safer danger As we find a way A way we go
The eastern summer rain Falling down In every small, familiar space Finding the lowest place Like darkness deep in me That crept into you How so sure Of this stranger I now find Across geologic time Tonight In the eastern summer rain I knew you I feel what I need to prove Following westward moves In knots No matter what It's never too much I'm still there I keep what we used to swear It must be under there Tonight Under the city lights Standing out Dissolved In the eastern summer rain Somehow Freezing in the cracks again
Company 09:43
I've never seen you before But you’ve come here to haunt me Sleep and wake with me Linger but say nothing I know you're not real Most of the time And most times There is only you But it's only me And everything that I was Unsettling company, but company When I'm old And the world has fallen away The flashing screen The news that I can't read Won’t change it Or take me back in time I’m bound to this chair I can’t run you off Uninvited guest We say that it's all But it's always
Pillars 08:15
Slow down We’re too far The light's lost in pillars of cloud But nothing can change What's happening now Not might Not know-how Hold on For how long "Now you stay right here, son" Slowly Past all the faith in the world We arrive At the turn of the tide It happens now And I... I know that things won't be the same Here again It happens now And I know This is the last glance Before the unknown
Drifting out On the wake Of all that’s passed It’s the fog that lasts Now that it’s over No more plans No one knows What is allowed Silence now Things that we shoulder It seems to come again In every fleeting sunrise It’s as true now as it was then All that’s new is all that was So we go… Looking back The truth won’t volunteer It’s no more clear Now that it’s over All it takes is that which can’t be done We won’t outrun Only grow older Accession makes us free As the sea As the sky An endless goodbye Memories depend on where we are And just how far From when it was closer Does it matter What we claim or disavow Anyhow Now that’s it’s over We are all of why
