about

Linus and Amy's debut album was written from the viewpoint of a girl dealing with lost love. We've all experienced the self doubt and insecurities that result from heartbreak or unrequited love. These feelings often rise to the surface leaving one teetering on the edge of the great unknown, or "The Black Below." The album ranges from downbeat melancholic ballads to hypnotic techno grooves.

Here are a few things people have said about the album:

Claude Young Jnr - "really beautiful stuff. So well produced. You definitely have something special on your hands!"

N.L. - "Get your dancing shoes and a packet of tissues, you're gonna cry while you dance. Which is probably good therapy when dealing with heartbreak. Indie electronic music with feelings of despair, anxiety, tension and at some points the music becomes very seductive."

Colin Dale - "great sound....very refreshingly different."

Noah Pred - "it sounds fantastic... brilliant production man, really!!
excellent underground electronic pop in the vein of massive attack... well done."

Gary Beck - "lovely tracks, the combination works fantastic and I wish you every success with it!"

Brian Viglione - "I loved your album! it's just my taste, it was wonderful to listen to. Loved the songs and the production. Right on the money."

Man Parrish - "I think it sounds AMAZING! Really beautiful stuff!"

Ulrich Schnauss - "I enjoyed this a lot indeed. A very engaging combination of gentle electronics and dancey grooves."

Howie B. - "really like your work, the songs and arrangements. good job."

Alexi Delano - "Linus the album is super nice!!! Mix is smooth as hell."

Track Name: Back Again
hearing voices through the crack in the ceiling
monday morning dawn is coming with some revealing
open bottles have a way of deceiving
like a love affair where no one is leaving

lies keep me thirsty at night
nothing's changed
i'll be back again

holding on to you but my memory is fleeting
everyone knew but time wears a feeling away
show me the way to your bright side
it's time to believe in the things we once said

lies keep me thirsty at night
nothing's changed
i'll be back again

singing a new song, wearing a new dress, have you noticed?
remember your past, life stole a girl i once knew
wait for the lights, don't let go of me
just tell me you need me and i'll be there

lies keep me thirsty at night
nothing's changed
i'll be back again
Track Name: Follow Me Down
follow me down
to the edge of the world
follow me down
feeling the beat and the pulse in your heart
it's your heart string
follow me down
attack and defeat all the things in your life
that you're fearing

sometimes your heart sees what your mind wants to hide

follow me down
to the edge of the world
follow me down
into the night of your thoughts
hit the ground, now you're running
follow me down
here in my arms all your troubles will fall
no more heartbreak

sometimes your heart sees what your minds wants to hide

when i look in your eyes
and feel
i don't want to hide

sometimes your heart sees what your mind wants to hide
Track Name: Our Secret Tunnel
i got a deep dark secret
that's keeping me diseased
i can't think, i don't know
i get scared of what i see
i hear the sounds of the voices
are begging for me to please...
i wanna run, jump, fly into you...

to believe, believe in love
to believe, believe in life

i'm at the height of my life
but my thoughts are tempting me
i can't sleep, in my mind
there's no leaving
can't you see.
i live my life in a box
with the walls crashing down on me
i wanna run, jump, fly into you and just be free

to believe, believe in love
to believe, believe in life
Track Name: Arsonist's Daughter
que hay que sentir?
(what is there to feel?)
Track Name: Last March
love beings
your eyes shine
your smile
i love you
i love you

you will see me again

your eyes shine
your smile
i love you
i love you

you will see me again
Track Name: Gm
nobody saves your soul
can you make the time
to say you're sorry

love only feels so wrong
when you hold it far away
from your lover

life, when it falls apart
everyone's gotta shine
everyone's gotta play hard

no more time to say
it was long ago
i couldn't make you stay

stop. we have grown apart
nothing's left to say
you must break my heart

i don't want to hear about your world
don't want to hear about your life
say you're sorry
Track Name: Drastikman
your uncertainty
keeps me wanting
make love to me
Track Name: Waiting
the sun burns down
and the sky's (blue)
a million thoughts float on repeat

find your way home
and never look back
let yourself go

love
peace

fragile thoughts
seem kind to me
a smile that breaks so easily

it's a long way down
but it's farther up
which way do i go

find your way home
and never look back
let yourself go

love
peace

find your way home
and never look back
dream like a child
and never give up
