We are very excited to present our third and final release of the year “Far From Home”.
In contrast with our previous release “Driftwood“, “Far From Home” sees us return to our darker, heavier progressive goth sound. The a-side “Gravity (far from home)” is a full remix of the track “Gravity” from the “Raven” album with added vocals.
The song was originally written back in 2005 for a previous band and has always had lyrics but with the exception of the opening section, Dawn of Elysium played it as an instrumental piece. This worked rather well for a time but when Kaz joined the band and added her vocals to it, something magical happened and despite having not that long since recorded and released it, we felt it was well worth a revisit. We hope you enjoy what we’ve done with it.
The b-side is a cover of Sisters of Mercy’s “Poison Door”. After finishing the work on the acoustic / orchestral and very serious vibe of Driftwood, we felt it was necessary to redress the balance somewhat, return to our goth roots and have some fun in the process whilst not having to think too much about composition. Poison Door is a song I have loved for many years and have secretly wanted to play it for ages so we thought – why not? Yes we’re probably breaking some goth convention somewhere and have probably raised a sneer or two from the “too cool for school” brigade but we’d like to think we have made it our own and in our defence we’ve not picked an obvious one. Have listen, we hope you like it and that you listen to it in the fun spirit with which it was recorded.
Have a merry Christmas and a happy new year!
Alec, Emma, Charles, Kaz and Tim
