about

This Second Album from The Gravitons is a collection of songs that never made it to the first album or the forthcoming third album. Don't let that put you off though, as it's probably a better album for it.

An eclectic mix of tracks ranging from Acoustic Folk and Psychedelia through to Indie and Electronica.

Many are one-offs or experiments, created in the moment, often arriving when trying out a new gadget or instrument.

Lo-fi Keyboards, Stylophones, Theremins (or at least trying to emulate one) and FM Synth tracks, sit alongside more familiar sounding guitar based songs.

If you enjoy the pop eccentricities of Beck, the improvisations of Velvet Underground, early Pink Floyd and Brian Eno, and the harmonies of the Byrds and the Beatles then you're sure to enjoy 'Institutionalism' by The Gravitons.

A genre jumping audio bazaar - So sit back, relax and enjoy the journey

Track Name: So Sooth
Into the sun we fly
There is no earth to keep us now
And if tomorrows pass us by
Keep hope and dreams alive
Keep hope and dreams alive

Sunset, life never met
Sooth, so, so, sooth
Lifes hollow womb

Into the sun we fly
There is no earth to keep us now
And if tomorrows pass us by
Keep hope and dreams alive
Keep hope and dreams alive

Sunset, life never met
Sooth, so, so, sooth
Lifes hollow womb
Lifes hollow womb
Lifes hollow womb

Into the sun we fly
Track Name: Our Paths
Your way is in my way
My way is in your way
Somewhere in the Middle
Our paths may cross
Our paths may cross

Your way is in my way
My way is in your way
Somewhere in the Middle
Our paths may cross
Our paths may cross
Track Name: This Life
Catch the summer sun
Before the summer's gone
Before the summer's through

Wile away the hour
Before the hour consumes
Before the hour consumes

This life is a sofa thrown
This life is an olive stone
This life is it heaven sent
This life, this life, this life, this life

Catch the summer sun
Before the summer's gone
Before the summer's through

Wile away the hour
Before the hour consumes
Before the hour consumes

This life is it made of stone
This life isn't all our own
This life is in awe of you
This life, this life, this life, this life

You could be anything you want
You could be anything you want
You could be anything you want
You could be anything you want

Wile away the hour
Before the hour consumes
Before the hour consumes
Track Name: Where Everything Is At
This is a test
To test the volume
This is a test
To see where everything is at
This is a
Track Name: Retro Song
Standing at the railway station
Waiting for the next trend to come along
As we stand in line, a worn out sign
Informs us a new fashion has begun

Oh Retro, Retro Song
Oh won't you all sing along
And the world you knew
Is almost through
Apart from the Retro Song

As we celebrate the better days
The rose tinted glasses spoil the view
And we throw away an old cliche
Another one does stumble into you

Oh Retro, Retro Song
Oh won't you all sing along
And the world you knew
Is almost through
Apart from the Retro Song

As we sail the ship of ownership
Another thing to have comes along
In this burden of possessions
Are we drowning in the waste of our wants

Oh Retro, Retro Song
Oh won't you all sing along
And the world you knew
Is almost through
Apart from the Retro Song

Oh Retro, Retro Song
Oh won't you all sing along
And the world you knew
Is almost through
Apart from the Retro Song
Apart from the Retro Song
Apart from the Retro Song
Track Name: Rewrite Tomorrow
I understand you're different from me
This distant land has come into being
We arrive there, yeah
We arrive where?

I only hope one day we learn to give and live together
I'm sick and tired all this fighting, yeah, yeah, yeah whatever
So rewrite tomorrow
Coz we arrive tomorrow

That grand design has run out of time
Will we make it there or will we resign
Half way there, yeah
Long wait, yeah

I only hope one day we learn to live and give together
I'm sick and tired all this fighting, yeah, yeah, yeah whatever
So rewrite tomorrow
Coz we arrive tomorrow
