The Shadow 05:15
I see a victim of our times You're touching speed And you're passing light And now you run and hide so fast we'll never find you Did you reach the golden heights Did you bask out in the light Are you some kind of paranormal friend of mine Do I belong in your shadow I never tried to understand you If there's a God beneath your skin A whirlwind caught within Let's see the God beneath your skin
Deletism 04:20
The Phoenix 05:59
Two white lines converging A thousand miles apart There's a sky that burns like fire And I hope this will never last Keep running out towards me And I'll reach you in the end But my legs are long and heavy And I'm sinking in the sand There's three atoms on a collision course One splitting from inside One bulleting at the source head on And one burning with desire Are you riding out with me Or are you riding out alone Are you leaving without me On the long journey home
I Am a Ghost 04:42
I am a ghost Stood carefully In your way And now I find I'm just a shell That's all I am I am a ghost In your way You don't see me or my shell That's all I have That's all I am
Can I ask you what for? You could have it all... Yesterday you sent our sun off to war Can I ask you what for? Yesterday you sent our sun off to war Can I ask you what for?


"....Back in 2000 Fragmented Films has fond memories of fronting up to a grimy Punters Club to witness an electronic artist with rudimentary electronics, a trombone and a mandolin craft these beguiling textures of sound. The artist was Nightswimmer and he self released three albums between 2000 and 2003 before promptly relocating to the UK, in pursuit of his other more shoegazey pop project The Sound Movement.  He’s recently returned to Melbourne after 8 or so years abroad with a new album The Sound of Disconnect. Whilst there is some similarity in mood and aesthetic with his earlier work, there’s a greater complexity in composition and execution. Nightswimmer gives the music plenty of time and space, allowing sounds and emotions to drift gradually into earshot, vocals whisper, guitars jangle and before you know it your transported back into his incredible world..."
