Sounds for Drowning Robots is [adj]'s first electronica album. Made up of instrumental tracks scattered with a few vocal ones, this record is a journey into the sounds that might please drowning robots. Technology tries to warn us that we are small in comparison to the great nature all around us, but we scoff at this and continue blindly on towards our own destruction.

There is a story that goes with this album, one about the rise of the drowning robots. Check it out at

Track Name: Swimming With Robots

Track Name: ET in the Sun
We're all out having fun, without proper protection on,
But like an ET in the sun, we fail to see what's wrong,
A chance to all be one, regardless of our classes,
And like an ET in the sun, there's no need for sunglasses,

When all is said and done, it's glorious to be here,
So like an ET in the sun, let's sunbathe away the fear,
We are second to none, it's written in every palm,
And like an ET in the sun, we just need to stay calm
Track Name: Quick Decisions

Track Name: Oh no no no no!
Oh no no no no,
Oh no no no no,
Oh no no no no,
Oh no no no no etc.
Track Name: Global Yawning
It's melting, apparently we're helping,
It gets boring, causing global yawning,

We're counting, problems keep on mounting,
Up every morning, for the global yawning,

We're sinking, what were we thinking,
It's shit storming, all from global yawning,

Day is dawning, for a global yawning,
Track Name: In Every Orifice

Track Name: Requiem for Youtube
The human genome is going through a cosmic upgrading, bought about by the continual cycling of energy throughout the universe. Like a ripple from cosmic central hitting the planet and unlocking for us further parts of our own DNA. We are becoming the god like creatures we have always dreamed of becoming. The power elite want to stop this from happening, hence the constant bombardment of our brains with violence, disagreements, advertising etc. They don't want us to evolve, and they have been doing a number on us to make sure it doesn't happen.

We are reaching critical crunch time, where we will expand our perception and awareness to encompass a much large level of interactive understanding amongst our own and other species on this planet, it is already happening right now, people are changing the world over faster and faster. The levels of ignorance are dropping, and the Power Elite have noticed it and are doing everything they can to distract us from it. But enough of us are not distracted, and the energy of our evolution into space travelling beings is here now.

Our DNA is unlocking for us some great abilities, they have been encoded in us for as long as the species has been in existence, and they unlock at the appropriate time within the collective experience to assist us to the next level. We need to have deeper levels of communication and interaction to be able to have any understanding about the world around us. The belief systems that have developed over time are being challenged in all areas by other belief systems, and all science is slowly merging into one super science that will recognise the connectedness of all things and stop focusing in on specifics of individual areas.

We will become something entirely new in a short period of time, so buckle up, this is a bumpy ride.

Just some thoughts there, take what you like from it, have a good cycle round the sun.

Peace and infinite love

Track Name: Happy Ever After
I'm crushing on you,
Hoping dreams will come true,
We can avoid disaster,
Have our happy ever after,

It's the best I could do,
Given all of the clues,
Trying to move faster,
To our happy ever after,

But life gets in the way,
Different struggles everyday,
Open wounds without a plaster,
Bleeding happy ever after,

I'm still crushing on you,
You are my dreams come true,
I'll keep trying harder,
For the happy ever after
