  • Cherry Ghost - People Help The People

    4:05



    Following on from his debut release 'Mathematics', Cherry Ghost is back with a new single 'People Help The People'.

    After the gentle bittersweet melancholia of his debut single 'Mathematics', Cherry Ghost shows a more passionate side with his single, 'People Help The People' on Heavenly Recordings.

    Theme-wise it's firmly rooted in trademark Cherry Ghost territory -- a lament by the perennial outsider looking for a home. With it's anthemic chorus, soaring strings and piano and Aldred's rough-diamond vocals 'People Help The People' is a lyrically sophisticated song that combines poetry and rousing melody to create music with both drama and darkness. It also cements Cherry Ghost's knack of creating songs based on personal stories that have universal appeal.

  • Cherry Ghost - 4am

    3:27




    '4 AM' is the third single from Cherry Ghost, already recognised as one of most exciting new bands of the year.

    Their first album Thirst For Romance debuted in the Top 10 and received outstanding plaudits across the board. After a series of sell-out gigs around the UK and festival appearances at Glastonbury and Latitude among others, the band continue to find new fans with their unique blend of electrified poetic storytelling. Cherry Ghost are that rare thing -- a commercially successful group who have got there on their own terms and by doing what they do best -- which is quietly but persistently creating atmospheric, intelligent music that's not afraid to be bold. With a repertoire of songs that go way beyond catchy melodies and rousing choruses, Cherry Ghost manage to create a musical world of their own that's as strong and as all-encompassing as a fictional voice.

    Track: Thirst For Romance
    Album: Thirst For Romance
    Artist: Cherry Ghost
    Released: July 9, 2007


    Lyrics:

    Remember me with a smile on my face
    Replace the tears in your memory with
    Two heroic arms that twisted lids form jars
    And dragged you home after drinking in the park

    Remember me with the wind in my sails
    Replace the Night Nurse that sits at my bedside
    With a whistling heart, that played piano in the dark
    And cheered you every step of the way

    I still thirst for romance, I still thirst for romance,
    And the sand between my toes
    Darling I, I seen demons dancing, I seen demons dance
    across factory floors

    Remember me holding court in Henry's Bar
    Poking holes in the so-called Left
    Buried my mother, father, sister, brother, lover
    So why'd they treat me like a child?

    I still thirst for romance, I still thirst for romance,
    And the sand between my toes
    Darling I, I seen demons dancing, I seen demons dancing,
    across factories' floors

    I still thirst for romance and the sand between my toes
    Darling I seen demons dancing across these factories' floors
    floors, floors.

    (Darling I seen demons dancing...)

The first single to be taken from the new LP 'Beneath This Burning Shoreline' , released on July 7th.. The dusty crooned vocals of Simon Aldred are wrapped around psychedelic lullabies, Glen Campbell guitars and stately drumming. An ode to wayward souls trawling the night skies, 'Kissing Strangers' is a 21st century song for swinging lovers: young hearts on the chase and well groomed weekend brutes. Directed by Douglas Hart.

  • Cherry Ghost Clear Skies Ever Closer

    3:58

    'Clear Skies Ever Closer' is the first single to be taken from Cherry Ghost's third album 'Herd Runners', out 12th May 2014 on Heavenly Recordings.


    Video directed by Maxine Peake. Featuring Maxine Peake and Shaun Evans (Silk, Endeavour)



    Cherry Ghost has also unveiled a charming b/w video to the album's first single 'Clear Skies Ever Closer'. The video is the directorial debut of Maxine Peake and stars herself and Shaun Evans (Silk, Endeavour) as possibly estranged lovers wistfully contemplating their relationship.

    /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    Maxine Peake on the making of the video: I've known Simon since 6th form and am a big fan of Cherry Ghost but bizarrely didn't realise they where one and the same.

    I only found out when Marc Riley informed me of the fact before inviting me along to a Cherry Ghost session for 6music. Which was absolutely stunning. So when Simon approached me to direct Clear Skies I hesitated for a second (as I've never directed anything in my life!) but I like a challenge and it was just too good an opportunity to pass up.

    I'd bought Shaun Evans 'Beneath the Burning Shoreline' as a birthday present a couple of years ago so I knew he wouldn't need much arm twisting to take part. Clear Skies Ever Closer is such a beautiful and evocative track, it was a real honour to try and represent Simon's artistry on screen.

    It was a steep learning curve but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • Cherry Ghost - Dead Mans Suit

    5:45

    Dead Man's Suit by Cherry Ghost, off of the 2007 album Thirst For Romance.



    My heart ain't broken 'cause that implies
    It was ever in one piece before tonight

    Paradise is poison in my veins
    Winter runs its fingers through the vapours that remain

    Burn your books in the car
    Fix your eyes on a star
    And imagine you can handle the loss
    Of a beautiful girl
    Wrapped in black icy curls
    Though your thoughts are like broken glass dragging you down

    None of these roads ever lead
    Ever gonna lead to your door
    God knows I've been here before and
    I don't need no long walk home down a loveless parade
    Seems I was born in a dead man's suit
    I was born in a dead man's suit

    Drunken old Olympian in the blocks
    Lousy on the trigger and his eye ain't on the clock
    Feed me like a monkey and I'll swing
    Deep inside the canopy where fire and ice are king

    Burn your books in the car
    Fix your eyes on a star
    And imagine you can handle the loss
    Of a beautiful girl
    Wrapped in black icy curls
    Though your thoughts are like broken glass dragging you down

    None of these roads ever lead
    Ever gonna lead to your door
    God knows I've been here before and
    I don't need no long walk home down a loveless parade
    Seems I was born in a dead man's suit
    I was born in a dead man's suit

    Sister quick pull the cord
    There's a horse on the ward
    With a mouthful of diamonds for teeth
    In a dusty old cape stands a man in its wake
    Singing I got a woman that loves like an ocean and

    None of these roads ever lead
    Ever gonna lead to your door
    God knows I've been here before and
    I don't need no long walk home down a loveless parade
    Seems I was born in a dead man's suit
    I was born in a dead man's suit

    Under trees that bear no fruit

Sans trop savoir pourquoi on avait dans l'idée que l'on allait se retrouver face à un groupe de gamins anglais un peu arrogants à cause de leur succès outre manche...

    Track: Mary On The Mend
    Album: Thirst For Romance
    Artist: Cherry Ghost
    Released: July 9, 2007


    Lyrics:

    By rights we should have been choking
    On every word the Preacher had us repeat
    A stiff drink and napkins in your hand bag
    The first aid of a three-time divorcee

    Carried you home down through the subway
    Where thrills are cheap and the kids roll down walls
    Like paint
    Borrowed Gods been rubbing their backs on your window
    Your summers are haunted with memories of love sick
    Strays

    Pick up your chin there's a Saint on the mend
    On a burnt out estate born of bones that don't bend
    Coming back stealing hearts pulling through
    Brand fire new

    Mary goes a-diving in at the deep end
    At the sliding doors of the 13th floor she prays
    She says night fall gently on the weekend
    When tempers are high and all those frustrations
    Displayed

    Pick up your chin there's a Saint on the mend
    On a burnt out estate born of bones that don't bend
    Coming back stealing hearts pulling through
    Brand fire new

    Pick up your chin there's a Saint on the mend
    On a burnt out estate born of bones that don't bend
    Coming back stealing hearts pulling through
    Brand fire new

    I'm hit, I'm down, I'm done, I'm dusted, I'm deadbeat
    I am weak as a kitten, been strapped to the tracks of a
    Train
    I have danced with the drunks, and dodged all those
    Filthy old whispers
    But baby go give 'em hell and tell 'em it came with a
    Name

    Brand fire new

    Lyrics (by request):
    Oh rolling river
    Go greet the seas across the ink black night
    Oh rolling river
    This day the skyline been my guiding light

    Oh rolling river
    I haul this hunted brow across the tides
    The prayers that delivering
    I'll cut my teeth upon the Dresden ice

    Where blue skies climb
    And grabbing hands don't reach for mine
    Where the living heart
    I have found no favour with the stars

    Oh rolling river
    I landed blows that have nearly taken life
    The fake in gods sliver
    The word dryed up but then I learned my mind

    And as a child
    I watched the noble hearts turn wild
    Where the living heart
    I have found no favour with the stars

    Beneath the burning shoreline
    A month of mornings rain
    Oh rolling river keep rolling
    On and and we remain

    Oh rolling river
    Go greet the seas across the ink black night

    Lyrics:

    Remember me with a smile on my face
    Replace the tears in your memory with
    Two heroic arms that twisted lids from jars
    And dragged you home after drinking in the park

    Remember me with the wind in my sails

    With a whistling heart, that played piano in the dark
    And cheered you every step of the way

    LYRICS
    Hellhounds bark at the midnight fire
    Fog rolls in, and the creek run higher
    They saw him standin' by the railroad tracks
    Tonight's the night old Floyd's comin' back

    Down, down deep in the ground
    Is where his story stays

    Down in Mammoth Cave, is where his body laid
    Walls came in life could not be saved
    No man made machine could see the things he's seen
    Mr. Collins, you did not die in vain

    Strangers moved in, brought the circus to town
    You know, there's people makin' money off a man underground
    Somebody said they weren't doin' him right
    That's why old Floyd's comin' back tonight

    Down, down deep in the ground
    Is where his story stays (so they say)

    Down in Mammoth Cave, is where his body laid
    Walls came in life could not be saved
    No man made machine could see the things he's seen
    Mr. Collins, you did not die in vain

    Down, down deep in the ground
    Is where his story stays (so they say)

    Here come the romans by cherry ghost
    from the album Thirst for romance

    Lyrics:

    World without sound
    can't you keep the noise down
    'Else you gonna make the baby cry

    Over split blood
    heavens anyone would
    think you had an axe to grind

    Baby look out here come the Romans
    with their steely gaze they're climbing on your sofa
    cheap veneers and a swinging brik for a heart
    forked tongues same song we're tired and we wanna go
    home

    Hide the swag bag
    quick before the tongues wag
    cross your heart and claim a noble cause

    Quote the scriptures
    paint your pretty pictures
    fleece them with your filthy paws

    Baby look out here come the Romans
    with their steely gaze they're climbing on your sofa
    cheap veneers and a swinging brik for a heart
    forked tongues same song we're tired and we wanna go
    home

    Bad news spread fast and they're spreading,
    they're spreading like a chip pan fire
    we must confess
    we ain't progressed
    since Elvis has left the building a mess

    World without sound
    can't you keep the noise down
    'Else you gonna make the baby cry

    Over split blood
    heavens anyone would
    think you had an axe to grind

    Baby look out here come the Romans
    with their steely gaze they're climbing on your sofa
    cheap veneers and a swinging brik for a heart
    forked tongues same song we're tired and we wanna go

    God knows what is hiding in that weak and drunken heart
    I guess you kissed the girls and made them cry
    those Hardfaced Queens of misadventure
    God knows what is hiding in those weak and sunken eyes
    a Fiery throng of muted angels
    Giving love and getting nothing back

    People help the people
    And if your homesick, give me your hand and i'll hold it
    People help the people
    And nothing will drag you down
    Oh and if I had a brain, Oh and if I had a brain
    i'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
    That turned all those good hearts away

    God knows what is hiding, in that world of little consequence
    Behind the tears, inside the lies
    A thousand slowly dying sunsets
    God knows what is hiding in those weak and drunken hearts
    I guess the loneliness came knocking
    No on needs to be alone, oh save me

    People help the people
    And if your homesick, give me your hand and i'll hold it
    People help the people
    Nothing will drag you down
    Oh and if I had a brain, Oh and if I had a brain
    I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
    That turned all those good hearts away

    People help the people
    And if your homesick, give me your hand and I'll hold it
