about

Hex, the fourth single from Atomic Pines, conjures a moment unconcerned with an uncertain future. A place and time roped to heartstrings, dragging heavily along the path to a brighter tomorrow.

An echo of chiptune in 7/8 time establishes dichotomy as the foundational element of the work. Familiarity and subtle discomfort dance together while Valerie LaDonna's haunting duet further defines the romanticism placed on days gone by. A desperate incantation attempts to break through this revolving theme - but to what avail?

lyrics

In a darkened room
In a darkened room
We sang together
In a sea of smoke I called your name
All of the paranoid pushing alchemy in corners
While glossy eyes all drift and strain

In a darkened room
In a darkened room
We'd sway together
In a broken time I knew you'd stay
Where all of the cynics and all of the dreamers live forever
And no one's worries ruminate

I've been holding on
Since you placed your hex upon me and it
Split me like a prism cuts the light
But I don't belong
Where the echoes feeds my failures gathered
Dancing in a ritual so tired

Black salt
Black salt
A reflector

I've been holding on
Since you placed your hex upon me and it
Split me like a prism cuts the light
But I don't belong
Where the echoes feeds my failures gathered
Dancing in a ritual so tired
