about

Midnight Magpie Birmingham, UK

More than your usual set up. Unprotected sax, smooth clarinet, and jazz piano float over grooving bass lines and unexpected rhythms. They fuse this with electronic sounds, melancholic vocals, and guitar that ranges from acoustic finger-picking to screaming electric solos, in an experimental mixture of styles. These elements blend to create a new deviant genre of music ... more

Track Name: Outro Renegotiated
"My cushioned world, has no wooden floors, paranoia infects my thoughts, and corrupts my tongue, uncertainty is a blind man on a tightrope.

What do you say, when your loved one is crumbling? We got carried away, we flew mighty high with candlewax wings, and out of the fray, heavy thuds and droplets tumbling, oh how I've wasted myself on the little things.

I've suffered... nothing, it's not me that has been ravaged by fiends, it puts me to shame how i've been complaining, when ghosts of the past do not haunt my dreams, so forgive my sins, I am not the one who should need to lean, oh how I've wasted myself on the little things.

What do you do when your loved one is crumbling? What do you do when your loved one is crumbling? We got carried away, we flew mighty high. What do you do when your loved one is crumbling? No no no no no What do you do? No no no no no no no no no. Babudabudabaday, oh your loved one is crumbling what do you say?. (scatting).

I've suffered... nothing, it's not me that has been ravaged by fiends, it puts me to shame how i've been complaining, when ghosts of the past do not haunt my dreams, so forgive my sins, I am not the one who should need to lean, oh how I've wasted myself on the little things.

(Woah, scatting, and other strange noises)"
Track Name: Whatever You Want
"I tell myself
that I no longer care for you,
as i recount your harsh words,
I am reminded of Neruda truths.

But then I see
that you are in pain too,
and I want nothing more
than to hold you to help you.

I hate our wandering eyes,
I want us to be magpies,
Is true love a pack of lies?

We fall prey to the oldest sins,
our illusions thick, our nobility thin,
what we wish for we can never win.

My resent surrenders and my
guilt at ever having so sligh-
tly loosened my grip,
at ever having let you go in my mind.

We fall prey to the oldest sins,
our illusions thick, our nobility thin,
what we wish for we can never win.

(Lots of na na nas)

Whatever you want baby,
I'll do it,
Whatever you need me to be baby,
I'll be it,
Wherever you need me to go,
you know I'll follow,
Whatever you want baby,
I don't

Care,
Oh I don't
care,
his fingers in my hair,
Oh na na na na, na na na.
Oh yeh, oh yeh oh yeh"
