about

Inner Ear is pleased to announce the release of the self-titled debut album of The Noise Figures duo, which is coming out on cd, vinyl and digital album. George Nikas (vocals, drums) and Stamos Bamparis (guitar, vocals) have produced, recorded and mixed the entire album along with Gou and Sillyboy. They have worked mostly with a Studer reel to reel analog tape recorder and the result is a compact retro sound.

“The Noise Figures" connects, in a unique way, 2013 Athens with 1965 San Francisco through the musical influences of the band. Restless fuzz guitars flirting with old-fashioned garage but also with contemporary blues, amps with plenty of spring reverb and dirty overdriven vocals form the music backbone of the 10 tracks of the album. The lyrics draw their themes from experiences on the road and express a dizzying madness for life. Traveling by car under the hot sun, hallucinogens, girls next door and beautiful wild landscapes are some of the inspirations of the two artists who are driving the imagination of the listener on an adventurous Kerouacian journey. "The Noise Figures" is best listened loud and is the ideal soundtrack for escaping the urban boundaries by car.

Track Name: Black Caravan
She got a black caravan
She cares of nothing at all

And when the bombs fell on a Saturday night
I couldn’t see her
Track Name: Out Of Your Mind
Run out of every drug and the hippies are back
I’m bathing in the afterglow of the last dance
Hold hands on a big drum circle
My lips don't move but I can hear me talk
You don't have to be sarcastic to be out of your mind

Out of your mind

Run out of every luck and my cat is still black
I'm wasting my days and they never come back
My brain is a chemical reaction
I wanna say nothing but i can't let go
You don't have to be burnt to be out of your mind

Out of your mind
Track Name: Bless The Flood
I curse the day
I think I overslept
I think I should have stayed in bed
She told me honey come on take my hand
I wander what it takes
When the morning comes I'm feeling down
I bless the flood
I think the summer rain may be the key to my open door
She told me honey the sun is on our heads
I think it's time to go
When the morning comes I'm feeling down
There's life in your metaphors
(I bless the flood, I bless the summer rain)
Track Name: Turn Off The Lights
I’ve been bitten by snakes
But no pain can last
I’ve been calling you names
But nothing matched
Until you cut yourself and blood fell off your thighs
So come turn off the lights

I’ve been driven by cars
To your empty bed
You took a last dance
Through the mud and the rain
Until you fell on the ground with bloodshot red eyes
So come turn off the lights
Track Name: No Rest
What a waste of my time
What a place to be on a late night
I would never be bored
But those shoes don't wit me anymore

What a way to hide
What if I could rest for a little while
And I'm out on the floor
Those shoes don't fit me anymore
Track Name: Tame The Knife
Into the burning bed
It was a long long ride
We took the endless time
And drove ahead

Let me take your hand
Swim by my side
Let me take your hand
Tame the knife

You could tell by the light
It was a cold cold one
Let the new tide
Paint every one

Let me take your hand
Swim by my side
Let me take your hand
Tame the knife
Track Name: Bones
You come straight from your daddy’s home
And you really got a pretty face
You play the drums with all my bones
And it looks like you’re here to stay
And time keeps slipping away
Out of your daddy’s home
Do what you do in your baby room
But please don’t break my bones
Track Name: We Look Better In The Sun
We look better in the sun
When the morning comes
We look so so strange
In the cloudy days
We find pleasure in the light
It takes all our time
We only travel through the day
Dance the rain away
Track Name: Space Mountain
She was a hole in the fallen world
Intervention of the God
If you fear of death and dark
You can pray on the mountain top

And if you keep it in your hand throw it away

She had a place in the rainy days
And the road could make her dance
If you run into the light
You will find the missing end
