Gravity Dip Records DIP025: 30th January 2006
1. Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. – The Chronicles Of A Bohemian Teenager: Part One
“Drinking to forget, always breeds regret”
2. Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. – Weeknights & Weekends
“I don’t want you to be, alone because of me”
3. Dave House – Shiver
“We all get nightmares, we all have dreams”
4. Dave House – A Song For
“Let this song be the soundtrack to, all the times that you’re uninspired”
I recently saw ‘Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.’ live and was impressed so I bought this split EP (With Dave House). They do one of their own then they do covers of each other.
‘The Chronicles Of A Bohemian Teenager: Part One’ is a monumentally pretentious title. Fortunately the lyrics and music are not. The words are packed with emotion and the music is folk based with added electronics (Think Patrick Wolf). Both his songs also feature mournful trumpets towards the end like Manic Street Preachers sometimes do.
Dave House is brilliant too with a sound reminiscent of ‘Architecture in Helsinki’. ‘Shiver’ is a call for people to see the things that they have in common. ‘A Song For’ is amazing and I’ll have to go get the ‘Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.’ original.
