Nyarlathotep In these troubled times, we need shoegaze and dream pop more than ever. We need that warm, enveloping buzz, which rocks even as it consoles. This is where Away Forward comes in. They don't reinvent the wheel; they remind you why the wheel was so awesome in the first place. While it's great on speakers, this is probably at its best on headphones, with your eyes closed, just letting yourself get lost in its warm, gauzy embrace. Better than heroin any day of the week. Favorite track: Smile Recipe.

My Darling 02:40
b-movie clichés / monsters and heroines the city’s under siege / monochrome dreams the planet unravels / will we still be here? when the fires alight / my darling hold me near my darling rescue me from halcyon dreams my darling rescue me I won’t put my head / over the parapet facts on facts on facts / won’t change my mind when the storms rage / will you be there to save our tiny thoughts / will our love prevail my darling rescue me from halcyon dreams my darling rescue me

Hideaway 02:55
there's a fiction there's a fiction that grew between this tragicomic coupling we fed it, we fed it, like a pet, psychological beauty queen Take my hand it's not that you understand take my hand, it's not that, you accept oh you're so small Swings and drinks Just want one thing I had a way to keep you safe Take my hand, it's not that, I can't stand take my hand, you accept it's not your fault Swings and drinks Just want one thing I hideaway to keep me safe

Rivalries 02:56
we came from nothing or so we thought we've been fighting for thousands of years undecided whose side we're on, rivalries last long our transgressions love's lost gifts and charms sins we're guilty of rivalries, rivalries through the papers and through the screens we form your thoughts we form your dreams undecided whose side we're on, rivalries last long our transgressions love's lost gifts and charms sins we're guilty of rivalries, rivalries

I write down the answers that I think you want to hear my dear, to fear, my dear So help me god Truthfully I’m desperate to impress you Restlessly I write you sincerely …without a hint of I list all the reasons that I wish you would believe In your dreams, completely, so help me dog Truthfully I’m desperate to impress you Restlessly I write you sincerely …without a hint of

Always 04:07
Same situations, different year Graceful repetitions, more grey hairs Worry ‘bout your parts wearing out Remember where you went or how you got there It’s getting late you can’t go home again Hold me close remind me it’s me again Same faces different year Misplaced names and muddled stares Forget ‘bout your memories fading out Your portrait on the wall with who knows where It’s getting late you can’t go home again Hold me close remind me it’s me again

Stakes 03:21
autumn’s ways / decay / like goth teens old mix tapes / cascade / will you remember me perihelion / fragile orbits / our nascent desires perturbate / discover / my perfect design mind over matter / never mind the stakes summer days / unfurl / like gingham dreams catching the sun / like tea stains / will you dance with me apparitions / us two / we can disappear appetites / unfed / between us two mind over matter / never mind the stakes

I Carry 02:29
i carry your heart with me i am never without it i carry your heart with me anywhere I go, you go, my dear, my dear no fate, for you are my fate, my sweet, I want no world for beautiful, my world, my true it's you, and whatever a moon has always meant sun will always sing is you deepest secret / nobody knows the root of the root the sky of the sky, of a tree called life grows higher than a soul can hope
