about

A Darker Turn for the Electric Angels, "Fear" weaves Art Rock and Psychedelia to create a Modernist tapestry of ennui and dislocation.
Fear contains 11 tracks recorded from December 2012 through March of 2014 documenting the harrowing details of daily life. Psychedelic arrangements blend with power pop and proto-metal songs to present a bleak soundscape. At turns melodic and dissonant, falsely happy and despairing, the album concludes with an withering commentary on the media in its reporting on the ongoing battle over gun violence in American Culture.

The Electric Angels are Brit, Bob Kingdon, Guitar and Vocals, and Yank, Eric Daum Vocals, Keyboards and Guitar. "Fear" is their most collaborative release yet, as they share songwriting credits on "Glittering Haze", "Beautiful Ruin", "Savage Soul" and Kingdon offers vocals on Daum's "Murder of Crows" The Electric Angels once again feature the writing of Scottish poet Carole Young setting her poem Whether I Like It Or Not" to music.

Guest artists include Michael Maloof, Lead Guitar on "Glittering Haze" and "Everything Burns so Bright" and Joey Vela, Lead Guitar on "Beautiful Ruin".
The standout Singles on the album are Bob Kingdon's "An Angel's Tears" and Eric Daum's "Dark Matter".

"A project invested with no shortage of passion."- Ian Crawford

"I'M NOT AFRAID ANYMORE!" - Richard Sinclair

"If it's as good as the last one then its been worth the wait"- Gavin Baker

Track Name: When The Curtain Comes Down
When the Curtain Comes Down
Eric Daum (C) 2013 Electric Angels Music


When the Curtain Comes Down
At the close of the Day
And the ghosts of regret
Come out to play

When the evening begins
The shadows loom
The tick of the clock
Fills up my room

When the Curtain Comes Down
At the close of the Day
When the Curtain Comes Down
All my hopes fade away

When the Curtain Comes Down
My certainty wilts
Faced with my past
The burden of guilt

When the Curtain Comes Down
At the close of the Day
When the Curtain Comes Down
All my hopes fade away

It all seemed so clear
At the dawn of the day
A smooth road lay ahead
Can’t get out of my own way

When the Curtain Comes Down
At the close of the Day
When the Curtain Comes Down
All my hopes fade away

Track Name: Falling Star
Falling Star
Eric Daum (c) 2012

Did you jump upon a falling star
As it hurtled to the ground
Did you hope the flaming path you rode
Would somehow turn around

What Madness did possess me
To let you lure my heart away
Those weeks of stolen glances
Were just a pointless Passion Play

The origin of the specious
The origin of Man
The legend of our longing
Our misbegotten plan

As we sat above Fifth Avenue
And watched the Sunset over Central Park
The fateful promise that I made to you
The tear in my divided heart

The origin of the species
The origin of Man
Sail the River Neva
The voyage of the damned

The origin of the species
Leads to the certain fall of Man
The Garden of Eden
A misbegotten plan

Did you hitch ride upon a falling star
To its unforgiving end
And did you watch your fragile dreams explode
We break before we bend
Track Name: Whether I Like It or Not
Whether I like It or Not
Lyrics by Carole Young and Eric Daum 2013


You don't trust me, I don't trust you
We know exactly Where each other stands

You are here for me, I am here for you
Who Needs for anything Who needs a diamond ring?

You have your space I have mine
No ties to bind, just the freedom to leave

We’re like birds, birds of a feather
We go our own way even when we’re together

Whether I like it or not
After all these years apart -
We have more in common
Than I thought

Whether I like it or not
After all these years apart -
We have more in common
Than I thought

You don’t like me I don’t like you,
We each make cuts to watch the other bleed

You still want me, I still want you
Yet we’re the last thing that the other needs

Whether I like it or not
After all these years apart -
We have more in common
Than I thought
Track Name: Dark Matter
Dark Matter
By Eric Daum

I can’t see you near me
I can’t hear you whisper -But I sense that you are here

I feel you all around me
Magnetic fields surround me-you’re the negative charge in the atmosphere

It’s a Dark Matter that binds us both together
A dark connection no one can see
It’s a Dark Matter that fills the space between us
The eternal dance in destiny

Your absence is my presence
We weigh it in the balance- you keep me rooted in this place

The weight of all we’re sharing
The dark secret that we’re baring- we hurtle off in our disgrace

It’s a Dark Matter that binds us both together
A dark connection no one can see
It’s a Dark Matter that fills the space between us
The eternal dance of infamy

Like Paolo and Francesca
Our souls are locked together- a desperate dance for eternity

An invisible force that binds us
Each new day reminds us-there’s more at stake than you and me.

It’s a Dark Matter that binds us both together
A dark connection no one can see
It’s a Dark Matter that fills the space between us
The eternal Dance in destiny
Track Name: Savage Soul
SAVAGE SOUL
by Eric Daum 2013

We have nothing
To fear but fear itself
That’s good enough for me
I easily scare myself

Save me save me
I’ve finally lost control
Save me save me
And soothe this savage soul

The dreams I sell
Each one my own invention
The road to hell
Paved with my good intentions

Save me save me
I’ve finally lost control
Save me save me
And soothe this savage soul

Save me save me
I’ve finally lost control
Save me save me
And soothe this savage soul

I’ve tried everything
To bleed the savage beast
I’d do anything
To help you find release

Save me save me
I’ve finally lost control
Save me save me
And soothe this savage soul
Track Name: Murder of Crows
Murder Of Crows
Eric Daum, (c) 2013

I spoke to my ghost last night haven’t seen her in years
She hitched a ride upon my trail of tears

A slurring voice like a passing car on a rainy street
It won’t be long until we meet

A murder of Crows in the cold grey sky
The simplest things can make me cry.

Naked branches arch across a crescent moon
The sound of distant cars surrounds me in the gloom

A biting wind on this winter dawn
I searched the trees the ghost was gone

A murder of crows in the cold grey sky
The simplest things can make me cry.

I’ll Never….Never understand the tragedy
(I hear them calling… I hear them calling my name)

I’ll never …Never understand all the things she meant to me
(I see them flying … I see them flying away )

Lying in bed I felt footsteps upon my grave
The beaten lie that my soul is saved

I Spoke to my ghost last night I haven’t seen her in years
She waits to resurrect all my fears

What sad day for our nation
It’s a good day for our ratings
Catch the highlights twenty-four/seven
Full details at 11:00

The camera zooms upon the scene
See the families say good bye
A minor key version of our theme
To let you know it’s time to cry

Let’s give the heroes a hand
Wave to those watching at home
The blood runs out on the sand
We hope that you enjoyed the show

Interview some peripheral witness
A close-up as the coffins descend the stairs
All brought to you by our sponsors
They’re the Big Bank that cares

Let’s give the heroes a hand
Wave to those watching at home
The blood runs out on the sand
We hope that you enjoyed the show

Give the people Bread and Circus
Death by the gladiator’s hand
Breaking News with our approval
We make them die at our command

Let’s give the heroes a hand
Wave to those watching at home
The blood runs out on the sand
We hope that you enjoyed the show
