About The Release

Recorded at Miloko’s ‘The Pool’ studios, and mixed at Youth’s own Prism Sound studios by Michael Rendall, the EP brings together the powerhouse behind both Echo & the Bunnymen’s ‘Meteorites’ and The Jesus and Mary Chain’s ‘Damage & Joy’ albums. This EP defines the band’s darker sounds, with droning guitars, pulsating synths, thunderous drums, whilst still retaining the icy guitar riffs, glowering basslines and the moody melodic baritone of Glen’s melodies.

Somewhat fittingly, the EP’s eponymous lead single manages to epitomise this dichotomy perfectly. A brooding bassline is paired with airy electronics, creating an aesthetic that’s as despondent as it is uplifting and is the perfect example of the band’s own ambitious and atmospheric brand of post-punk.

Elsewhere on the EP, ‘Further’ closes the record out, relishing in its own grandeur while capturing NLE’s desire to stretch themselves to new limits. As a whole however, Parting Shot perfectly shows both Northern Light Exposure’s willingness to experiment and their chemistry as band, in what they regard to be their most accomplished work to date.

Lyrics:

Parting Shot

PARTING SHOT

Don’t let the feeling of hope
Drag you down
It’s pulling you down

Afraid, I’m not feeling afraid
Now you’re not around

You are the one who understands
This dear life
You are the one who understands
That after all’s been said and done
And what’s left
Will soon become a memory
And after all’s been said and done
And what’s left will soon be gone
Gone

Fate I’ve been fearing this fate
For far too long
It’s all gone wrong

And hope I don’t belive in this hope
Anymore

You are the one who understands
You are the one tonight
You are the one who understands

That after all’s been said and done
And what’s left will soon become a memory
And after all’s been said and done
And what’s left will soon be gone
Gone

Till all is gone, till all is gone
Till all is gone, till all is gone
Now who will fire
The final parting shot

Shot
Shot
Shot

For Every Flame

FOR EVERY FLAME

How does it feel to fall from grace
To lose your favour lose your way
Did you burn with ambition
Were you the next in line
Did your light fade before its time

When all the hope inside is lost
You must remember
That all we love returns to dust
When all is gone

We don’t always see the way it ends
We only know how it begins
How it begins

All your life you’ve been shaping your legacy
Driving you on pushing you on
Now all that remains
Is the man you can never be
Pulling you down it’s bringing you down

We don’t always see the way it ends
We only know how it begins
But for every flame there is a spark
That lights our way out of the darkness

For every flame
For every flame
For every flame
Every flame
For every

Trouble

TROUBLE

Are we inherently the same
Just a form of genetics changing shape
Born of our parents design cut from the same cloth
A string of x and y’s

But we are not the same despite what they say
We have different ways

Oh there’s trouble in my heart there’s trouble in my head
And all that lies between them
Oh it’s running through my blood it’s flowing through my veins
Although we try to fake it

Where is the thread from which we were spun
Were these anomalies pressed in to each of us
Flawed right down to our seams
But long before the start this human heart
Was faulty as could be

But watch just what you say there’s history in a name
It’s in our DNA

Oh there’s trouble in my heart trouble in my head
And all that lies between them
Oh it’s running in my blood it’s coursing through my veins
Although we try to fake it
Oh it’s poisoning my mind it’s blackening my name
Although we try to fake it
Oh there’s trouble in my heart there’s trouble in my soul
And there’s no way we can change it

There’s trouble in my dreams there’s trouble in my mind
There’s trouble in our nature nobody can deny
What comes of the future takes with it the past
Does history shape up or is it just our curse

Further

FURTHER

We’re alone now, you don’t have to pretend
Here’s your moment, here’s your moment
Your further, further, away
Your further, further, away

These walls are tumbling down all around me
You see the things I fear are those you cannot see
You’re further, further, away
You’re further further away

There’s no flies on me there’s things I need to know
There’s roads we shouldn’t go down
But we don’t talk about love
And there’s no hope without trust
So let’s stop building walls when they should be bridges

There’s a scar it’s stitched all around my heart
And this pain I’m left to feel
Is like the wound from a poisoned dart
You’re further, further, away
You’re further away

There’s no flies on me there’s things I need to know
There’s roads we shouldn’t go down
But we don’t talk about love
And there’s no hope without trust
So let’s stop building walls when they should be bridges

We’re still building walls
We’re still building walls
We’re still building walls
We’re still building walls
Walls

We’re alone no you don’t have to pretend
Here’s your moment, here’s you’re moment
You’re further, further away
You’re further, further away
