Darken the Glow

from by Palo Duro

/
  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    This is a 7" Record that comes with the first two songs ever released by Palo Duro and Dangermouse's new label, 30th Century Records. The purchase also comes with a free digital download of each track. Not pictured is the white wax!!!! Please enjoy!!

    The first single, Darken the Glow, is a William Onyeabor inspired pop song with scaling guitars, a dirty back beat and a chorus that soars in the direction of Quincy Jones. Darken the Glow embodies the trust, the celebration, and ultimately, the creativity of this body of work and the people involved. It releases on March 10th worldwide, along with B-Side companion track, Surrender, by the late great synth/punk duo Suicide.

    Surrender was once described by Pitchfork as the perfect “Twin Peaks prom song”, and was recorded in1982 on the Ric Ocasek produced album Way of Life. Palo Duro’s cover of the song stays true to the original but more aggressively pursues the reverb laced vocals and pounding electronic drums from the original. Jesca Hoop makes an appearance on back up vocals courtesy of Sub Pop Records.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Darken the Glow/Surrender via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

Holding my hand, you just let go
Hearing your footsteps, coming close well i know
Leaving my mind, i just let go
Nothing to think about but, nothing at all i couldn’t tell you
I’ve see your heart, pure as gold
In love with a ghost right now, that you can’t love

I won’t beg you, let you down
Pick me up my dear, throw me to the ground

I can’t hold us still, take us back to another time (another time)
Something’s stealing you girl, something’s stealing me away (away)

Leaving the light on, watching it glow
Finding the darkness here, something i know
I couldn’t blame you, I wouldn’t do that
I’m leaving this madness, for something else now

Holding me hand, you just let go again my dear

I can’t hold us still, take us back to another time (another time)
Something’s stealing you girl, something’s stealing me away (away)
I can’t hold us still, take us back to another time (another time)
