Awake for hours is about appreciating what we have while we have it; putting aside the stress of what the future might bring, being fully present in the moment and making the very most of it. We can’t change the past and the future will always be the future not the present. All we have is now.
Produced and mixed by Barði Johannsson (Bang Gang/Lady & Bird)
I'm too awake to sleep; I'm too awake to want to.
I'll wait until the day breaks, say good morning to you darling
like I just got up before you.
But I've been awake for hours,
I've been awake for hours.
I'm too alone to leave. I'm too alone to long to.
I'll stay until the night falls, we can count the stars together,
and I'll tell you that I love you.
And everything is ours;
everything is ours.
And tomorrow, it could all fall down; so be here now.
Now that I can breathe how I know I want to.
We can take a moment, we can make it last a lifetime,
but all we have is now.
All we have is now, all we have is now.
And tomorrow, it could all fall down; it could all fall down;
so be here now.

every single track off this album is incredible and this is easily my favourite album to be released this year. nadia is an absolute boss ass bitch who deserves to have the world eating out of the palm of her hands. the amount of tears ive shed with this album and people ive introduced to it is insane. thank you for saving the year for me. 1achiee
Had to wait a bit to get this one but boy oh boy… so good. Harmonics, layers, catchy riffs, feathery angelic vocals. This band is such a wonderful group! Good luck with touring and stay safe! turbineguy
Such a beautifully balanced crafting of straightforward songwriting & ambient tones & intricacies.
We may have just lost Bowie but how uncanny to have this -by an artist also born in Brixton- released the same week, complete with Funeral Song & all!
Wonderful lyricism & an equally wonderful voice!
This collection of dark textures rival Steven Wilson. Shay Klink
