about

Neon Bogart Melbourne, Australia

Soaring vocals meet unflinching musical originality and a kaleidoscopic mix of influences ranging from film noir, Weimar-era cabaret, jazz, soul and electro beats.

From atmospheric 1920s-meets-24th-century ballads through to searing future-soul molecular boogaloo, this is music from the future and for the end of the world as we know it.

Track Name: Weightless
We two fish in a vacuum
Swim across the sparkling velvet
We bathe in black champagne
We toast with clink of helmet

If you could see the danger loom
Would you try to forewarn?
Or sit right up there on the moon
With a big ol’ bucket of popcorn?

Our arrogance can’t help us now, and it hurts a little,
Our laser beams can’t help us now, our world so burned and brittle.
This great expanse can’t help us now, our loneliness increases,
All our futures shattered, and we float among the pieces.

Chrome and 50’s pinup lips
The starlight in your eyes
Just we and one last jetpack trip
Across the lurex sky.

I will sing you a starchild lullabye
Can you still hear me in your speaker?
The static crackles God’s reply,
Your signal’s getting weaker.
Let’s blow the hatch and blaze a trail
Bright across the sky
And weightless I will drift with you
Until our batt’ries die.
And weightless I will drift with you
And bid our friends goodbye.
Track Name: Split Infinity
Gamma-ray bursts from a neutron star collision
Leading to magnetic field’s recognition of itself
Emerging from chaotic structure
Speeding particle jets in an energetic rupture

Supercomputer simulation
Starry self-immolation
A nuclear shiver faster than the eye can blink
In 35 milliseconds we’ll be skating on the brink of collapse

High energy GRB
Can you see the radiation
When we explode together baby
There’s no complication

To boldly go in search of soul divinity
In the subatomic flow
We split infinity

From the swirling void the unknown tends to beseech you
A lonely asteroid beckoning to complete you
On a nebulous safari, metaphysical ends
Justify the territorial strands in your colonial

Handstand on a precipice, admiring the span of the
Event Horizon and lay your tiny mortal eyes on
a wireframe, a polysemic refrain
Zoom in from a solar storm to tears in rain,
incontrivertible proof, a sensual degustation,
Of the omniversal truth in every permutation
Track Name: Don't Carry It All
Bowie said we had five years
Sedge says we have two
Well you can try to fly standing still through this one
But the world it won’t wait for you

This is a song for a young statue
This is a song for a poet’s maimed heart, oh
This is a song for a fragile warrior
Sharpening her paint brush into a poisoned dart

Don’t carry it all, don’t carry it all upon you
Don’t carry it all, don’t carry it all away
I’ll soften the fall, I’ll soften the fall for you
Be there when you call
Whisper it’s all OK

The 8 foot bride says you’re her baby doll
And that seems to soothe you somehow
But Patti calls for you to run beside her
You gotta be up off your knees to take your bow

This is a song for a young statue
This is a song for a poet’s maimed heart, oh
This is a song for a delicate lover
Clutching at worries
Like pearls in the dark

Don’t carry it all, don’t carry it all upon you
Don’t carry it all, don’t carry it all away
I’ll soften the fall, I’ll soften the fall for you
Be there when you call
Whisper it’s all OK

Cindy says she saw many moons
But you gotta be outside to see
Well what good is shining your light down here
When you refuse to believe that you’re free

Don’t carry it all.

Don’t carry it all.

I’ll wait with you til day.
Track Name: Fool's Gold Glow
There was a time
When we were outside
To see planets align
And shooting stars fly

Today we watch
The sun set underground
Although we know
It’s just a fool’s gold glow

How did it come to this
How did it come to this
So distant, we bury our hearts below

Dawn activates
But there’s a shadow in my wake
All they see is dread
When they look inside my head

Search for a smile
Truth stretched out for miles
Reach out my hand
For help – but I’ve been scanned

Munchian scream
Klimtian kiss
Just like a scene
From my fevered waking dream

A barrage of words
I miss the sound of birds
We put wings on our backs
But they’re just stuck on with wax
How did it come to this
How did it come to this
So distant, we bury our hearts below

How did we come to this
How did we come to this
So distant, we bury our hearts
we bury our hearts below
