I woke up on New Year's Eve with the line "2020's just a day away" stuck in my head. At first it made me laugh because no matter how I tried, I couldn't bring myself to sing "2021's just a day away". The more I repeated it, the more the line sounded like a warning. I imagined someone carrying that warning back in time to people in 2019 to let them know they had better get their partying in while they still could. As the song developed and I thought about the events of 2020, it occurred to me how many people were fervently awaiting the new year - as if a magical stroke of the clock would set everything right again. It seemed the people living in 2020 also needed a warning: nothing was going to change unless they changed it.

Six hours after I'd woken up, "Marooned" had been written, composed and recorded. I spent the rest of the day awash in a confusion of hesitant, skeptical celebration.

LYRICS: Touch down in the middle of nowhere Travelled 2,000 miles just to get there Nobody sat at home, worried Waiting up for me

Tell the date by the city I'm playing When to sleep all depends where I'm staying Curse the dawn with a new or an old friend Every now and then

People pass on the street There's always someone to meet And friends calling me up on the phone There just ain't no way to be lonely when you’re not alone

The trail of anonymous places Mapped hard in the lines on our faces We raise a glass in a toast to what’s come to be Freedom's monotony

Between singing the blues And long nights with cheap booze I make family wherever I roam There just ain't no way to be homesick when you've got no home

No time for routine Every day a new scene I tell you this life ain’t so bad There just ain’t no way for you to miss something you never had I say, there just ain't no way for me to miss something I never had

In honour of the 30th anniversary of The Sundays’ Reading, Writing and Arithmetic album, singer-songwriter Amelia Ray releases a dream pop ballad version of “Here’s Where the Story Ends,” gently lamenting a love gone bad. Ray sings lines such as “But the only thing I ever really wanted to say was wrong” with the the broken-hearted desperation of someone who has realised a relationship’s futility.

The video was filmed in one, continuous shot, take. Ray spent two days in Antwerp under the tutelage of Laura Laura Productions learning to draw, and showed great improvement in rendering both The Eiffel Tower and facial profiles recognisable. Time proved to be her enemy, though, and as the task of drawing at the speed of the song took precedence over technique, her style quickly morphed from Cuyp to Picasso.

For $9.99, the song will also come bundled with a limited-edition, numbered, signed postcard print featuring original artwork by Amelia Ray from the book created in the video. The artwork was drawn in real time during the filming of the video. Only 125 postcards will be printed. Free shipping! Order here: https://ameliaray.net/product/565900

(Amelia Ray's electronic music project's debut EP)

Welcome to the world of Powder Pop, where neither your ego nor your white pantsuit need be checked at the door; where Kratfwerk, King Britt, Bauhaus and Bacharach meet for martinis and discuss a mutual admiration of Twiggy.

Why No Dream is an electronic music project birthed in the underground clubs of Madrid for those who normally eschew dance music, preferring to lazily bop their heads to the beat while holding up the wall. The era of dancing without sweating has returned.

Cités, the first EP from Why No Dream, ponders the sounds places seem to possess and emit, and comprises five three-and-a-half minute songs that were entirely composed, performed and recorded using only samples and sounds available in GarageBand for iPad. The samples were carefully matched and layered to create five unique compositions with complex beats and rich melodic patterns.

Composed, arranged, performed, recorded and mixed by Amelia Ray Mastered by Jesse Skeens at Medway Studios Album artwork by PES Album design by Einat Amir

Release date: 06 Sep 2018
