Touching on new wave, ambient, psychedelic sounds as well as classic indie rock SYD KEMP offers a genre-blurring sound. Vincent Gallo, Deerhunter, Mac DeMarco, Broadcast, and Television make the music a dreamy, gleaming, glassy and addictive event dripping in liquid silver.

Track Name: As I Don't Get It
I can see the bridges,
All you see are edges
“What would it be like to fall?”

There is a road I might just leave
There are some ways
To end our days

You don’t know how much you hurt
I don’t know how long
I will be able to take it

You can feel it’s empty
I surely won’t make it
As I really don’t get it
Track Name: The Horror
Oh mummy, don’t worry
Oh mummy please don’t worry.
I’ve got a troubled mind,
But I’m not blind,
And I know you worry,
Cause it’s not what you want for me

Oh daddy, don’t worry
Oh daddy please don’t worry.
I won’t finish my studies,
But I’m not blind,
I know you worry,
Cause it’s not what you want from me
Track Name: At The Old Blue
I walk outside,
It’s dark and blue.
I walk outside and I don’t want to miss you,
When I will meet you at the Old Blue.

I see your eyes,
They are hard
And you don’t give a shit if I’m with you,
Cause you are with him at the Old Blue.

I run outside,
I don’t know why.
I run outside the Old Blue.
Track Name: Marble
Hey, you!
Do I know you?

I don’t know why,
You don’t reply.

I don’t want to,
Play games with you.
