“Black Wagon” is the pulsating first single taken off the upcoming debut album “Memory Device” produced and recorded with Al Doyle (LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip) in East London.


Hopped on the 109
Wiping the cold out my eyes
We took the wrong way home
And I’m shivering down my thighs
Its a winding road
And every corner’s blind
When that wagon rolls
It comes around and round…

Round and round
Round we go
Where we end nobody knows
Round and round
Black wagon roll
Where we land we’ll dig our hole!

I like to travel light
You never know what you’ll find
We caught the metro north
We took in all the sights
A long way from home
And I’m off my mind
When that wagon rolls
It comes around and round…


Shadows of the night
Chased off by morning light
I only feel at home
When that sun’s not in my eyes
With nowhere left to go
And nothing left to hide
When that wagon rolls
It comes around and round…
