Dieter Van Vugt Even better than the last album. But then again I'm totally into darksynth so it makes sense I like this even more. Most certainly worth my time and money. Favorite track: I Promise I (Crying Vessel Remix).

Creed H. Quinn So I set the favourite track to Sea Legs but in all honesty all 3 tracks on this EP are great and equal to each other.

*I Lied Sea Legs is just amazing in beat and vocals and just inches out as best on the EP.

Cursed Dead Astronauts for being so good. Favorite track: Sea Legs.

Marcos O'Mahony Some really solid tunes by Dead Astronauts. Catchy as ever. I find myself singing "I promise I..." in my head all the time! Favorite track: I Promise I.

chiasticslide I'll admit this took a bit longer to grow on me than other DA releases, but (in particular) Sea Legs is one of those songs that only comes along once in a blue moon. Looking forward to the new album! Favorite track: Sea Legs.

about

Dead Astronauts Seattle, Washington

Minimal and magical, he has that syrupy drone, she has that lilting whisper. As one, it's a seeping combination, a thumping transfusion. This is a pair, heavily influenced by the 80s, whose parts bring each cohesive element to the table at different times; two parts of one, they are a careful gestalt that synthesizes. ... more

Track Name: I Promise I
Like a ghost
Frozen in time
Carried by the wind
Carried by the tide
(A restless mind)

Two entities
Intertwined
I'm buying what you're selling
I'll buy your lies
(I'll buy your lies)
When you say...

I promise I
Will never love again
I promise I
Will never let this end
I promise... again

Like a soul
Paralyzed
A dear in headlights
I'll buy your lies
(I'll buy your lies)

Like a soul
Paralyzed
A dear in headlights
I'll buy your lies
(I'll buy your lies)
When you say...

I promise I
Will never love again
I promise I
Will never let this end
I promise... again
Track Name: Strange Ways
Soul is tattered
Soul is torn

Bruised and battered
On the floor

I once was mistaken
For one you love

My heart on a shelf
Head mounted above

You
I want you
You
I want you

You
I want you
In a strange way

A ticking clock
The light of the day
But I'll wait til night
For your strange ways
Track Name: Sea Legs
Please try to understand
I know you've been pacing
Asking if it's worth it

Sea legs on foreign land
My heart has been racing
You might have heard it

And all I ever wanted was to be your friend
And here is I was just hoping I would feel again

What if I don't?

Starting again
touched by his hand
The feeling that it gives me makes me wish I could pretend
That there isn't a voice in the back of my head

And you're walking away
with contempt in your eyes
cause my reasons just weren't good enough
to put this to an end
It's okay I'm alone I'll just wait since my nerves are dead

Where have you gone?
Where'd it go wrong?
Where have you gone?
Where'd it all go wrong?

You can go but can never come back
You're world's aglow your world's all under attack
I'll be there, I'll be there
For you

You can go but can never come back
You're world's aglow your world's all under attack
I'll be there, I'll be there
For you...
I'll be there for you
