OVER & OUT and what it's about

Over & Out is about the controversial times we live in, with observations and passing sarcasms touching on topics such as the internet, social media and what comes with it. The overflow of information and endless opportunities influence our way of thinking and our actions in our daily lives while constantly opening up new situations and unpredictable changes we have to deal with. 

 

Things are moving so fast nowadays, that it’s hard to keep up and in order to move with the times we have to be able to change and mould with new situations. As safe as we feel in one moment the next can catapult us out of our bubble and into the opposite extreme with uncalculated outcomes. As depicted on the Vinyl Cover -  however advanced we are, one can easily make a wrong turn to crash and burn. PfP have visually summed up these modern day issues with a humorous and playful flip side as represented in their two new clips (Catapult and Shit Storm City). 

 

The clip for CATAPULT" shows Rhys playing the part of a crazed social media addict who’s spiraling out of control. Meike warrants the „Men In Black“ to bring him in for brain surgery to get things back on track.

 

"SHIT STORM CITY" is about how people can suddenly end up in situations and on paths they never really chose. The main character fails at every day life and finds himself wandering through the middle of nowhere, looking to make sense of the situation. 

RECORDING PROCESS

As the bands history goes Powder For Pigeons have always used the changing of continents and environments to their creative advantage, helping shape the song writing and recording process. Many of the tracks have been recorded live in Germany and finished in a paddock or bushland area in the middle of nowhere in rural Western Australia. We believe it definitely adds a extra dimension to the end result. Spending nine months of the year touring and writing in heavy populated parts of Europe and then escaping back to Western Australia for three months of the dry scorching hot summer in a very isolated place can quiet often put the icing on the cake.

 

The new album OVER & OUT will be released on marbled mud "12" Vinyl and consists of 7 tracks. "Lay it on", "Personality" and "Better Days" have been re recorded and remastered.  Because of unforeseen circumstances (someone smashed into our tour van) PFP were unable to release these tracks on Vinyl last year. So by your demand here they are. Enjoy!!

Lyrics:

Catapult

Losing my fight, I wanna know

So tell me something real

Get my feet back on the ground

Outta my life, outta my sight

One word to feel alive

Means to bring me round

Outta my mind

We’re sold and we’re all out of time

 I gotta know, it’s on

Tell me you're for real

Stick ya head back in the ground

Just one word to make us feel alive

Going going gone going going sold

Means to bring me round 

Personality

Blank stare, play along

Can’t tell today from right or wrong

My condition, look it up

Too late, poison in the cup

Taking over me and over me inside of me Personality, keep telling ‘em what you will

Taking over me inside of me inside of me Personality. Keep telling ‘em what you will

Another scattered day another song

Don't make the rules don't get me wrong

Out of reach, out of touch

Out of time, shit, well out of luck

Too late poison in the cup

Taking over me and over me inside of me

Personality, keep telling ‘em what you will

Taking over me inside of me inside of me Personality, keep telling ‘em what you will 

Lay it on

Don't know if I can trust you by that look in your eye, looking for somebody you can take for a ride. Keep the bullshit coming

Full of empty promises

Don't want to tell you but you try to hard, Got to go now so nice to know ya.

Ya lay it on me but I just don't care.

I got the feeling you don't even notice, I got to go now so nice to know ya. You lay it on me but I just don't care.

Oh yeah you got that look in your eye. Oh yeah ain’t no way you can hide. Go ahead try it on, I'm gonna find out anyway

Don't want to tell you but you try to hard. Got to go now so nice to know ya

Ya lay it on me but I just don't care

I got the feeling you don't even notice

I got to go now so nice to know ya You lay it on me but I just don't care. Oh with the promises.


SHIT STORM CITY

 

I’ve been here too long, pack my bags Gotta be a better way to get out of here Wasting all our time, living on pesticide

Rack ‘em up, back it up oh now feeling alive It’s been to long and I feel the storm is near

Feeling uninspired, scratch my head

Pinch and roll come on, now shake my hand Ride into the fire, never gonna satisfy

I feel that storm now is near

So I sit back and watch the clouds roll in

Pushed your luck so far now I’m bout ready to kill

Never wanna see things my way Never gonna do things our way Every little detail, all the same Driving us insane

I’m living in a shit storm city

Got the time but ya ain’t got a minute

I’m living in a shit storm city

Cant keep a promise oh what a pity

I'm living in a shit storm city

Got the time but I ain’t got a minute for you 

EXPECTATION

 

Inject yourself with noble cause Down in a place below

I got some logic that'll sway the truth You should have stayed at home

Into the ground

So go against all the crap you know go on now take control

I saw that heart break right in two That’s when the tears will fall

Exit Slowly

Dust settles in a lonely bar Conversation’s loose

Go ahead then fill my glass That way you'll never lose

Expectation Exit slowly

Coming round with Expectations

In this candy store

All a dream, all a dream to me

All tho silently meant to be, used to Hanging on, hanging on

This boat is going nowhere but under I feel the current so strong today

But we’re hanging on

Coming round. With expectations 

BETTER DAYS

 

Found out sweet yesterday about your precious ways. The sun don't ever seem to rise like concrete set in grey

But I tried

To go my own way, Aside I’ve seen better days

In the worst of light habits rule

Can’t this from my head

When a taste of light comes burning bright All is done and said

But I tried

To go my own way

Aside I’ve seen better days

Won’t you tell me,

Won’t you tell me the truth?

You said that we could work it out But I've always had my doubts

But I tried

To go my own way

Aside I’ve seen better days

Wont you tell me,

Won’t you tell me the truth? I’ve seen better days ahead 


OVER AND OUT

 

I’m lost would you help me?

Nothing ever as it’s meant to be

That’s not what you're supposed to see for a piece of mind

I’m looking for harmony

No signal can't you see?

It’s over and out, it’s over and out.

I’m lost would you help me?

Nothing ever as its meant to be

That’s not what you're supposed to see for a piece of mind

I’d lend a hand, you'd take and arm

As we predicted

Right from the start

No signal over and out

No answer over and out

No contact give us a shout

What the fuckin hell you’re talking about? Nothing ever as it’s meant to be

Nothing ever as you're supposed to see No signal over and out

No answer

As we predicted

Yeah we predicted

Right from the start

As we predicted and we predicted Right from the start

It’s over and out!
