/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Sleep Sound CD in a beautiful gatefold custom made wallet - designed in house and printed on recycled card. Go on, treat yourself.

    As usual it's pay what you want or pay what you think it's worth...the minimum price of £1.60 literally only covers the cost of the physical production of the CD and you get a link to the download with your receipt so you can download and listen straight away! We want people to have this album, to enjoy it and to share it around but obviously we're also trying to make ends meet. So if you're not so flush at the moment just pay the £1.60...or just download the digital version below for whatever you want to pay. Even free - we don't even ask for your email address.

    If you feel moved to maybe float us a bit more then as ever, we do very much appreciate it. It's a fairly simple equation... your money makes this music.

lyrics

The bird out on the morning wire,
The frost out on the lane,
The faded light of cotton wool,
That is where I've been

Where starlings dance a centrifuge,
Of love and lust and spring,
Tumbling like a Rubik's cube,
That is where I've been.

Come on let me show you,
How the fields will mould you,
Any shape you want to...

With every stride a slow release,
Of fears and fails and needs.
The first one feeds the second one,
The third one brings me here.

Come on let me show you,
How the fields will mould you,
Any shape you want to be.
Come by saint or sinner,
Let the birds unpin you,
Throw your threads out on the breeze.

Come on let me show you,
How the fields will mould you,
Any shape you want to be.
Come by saint or sinner,
Let the birds unpin you,
Throw your threads out on the breeze.
Let the blackbird fly you,
Somewhere fresh I'll bet you,
Swap the stale air you breathe.
Come by here my lover,
It's a mess I'll grant you,
Throw your threads out on the breeze.

Just before the fighting starts,
Just before we name,
The reasons we must be apart,
That is where I'll stay.

about

Hope and Social Leeds

In the tradition of the travelling bands, we guess we’re a bit like a Yorkshire E-Street Band...meets Arcade Fire...meets The Faces…meets Dexys Midnight Runners…meets Prefab Sprout…at a party...in an argument about who gets to have sex with David Bowie. We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
