about

Loudhailer Electric Company’s second studio release Morpheus is dripping with guitar laden original psychedelic sounds and songs telling stories of road trips, myths & legends and sci fi.

‘Loudhailer Electric Company take us on a trip through a mystical realm of dreams, dragons, gorgons, gods and star-crossed time travellers and delivers us safely back to earth to the sound of chiming acoustic guitars, thunderous drums, bubbling bass and sonic cathedrals of electric guitar. All topped off with delicious vocals. Let Morpheus melt your mind!’

“I’m finding myself lovin’ Morpheus. That guitar is peeling the paint off my wall!” Jungle Jim Ward, Byron Bay, Australia

Released on the bands own DHM Record Label the mini album is available on Bandcamp from the summer solstice and on all the usual digital outlets from July 15th.

Track Name: Dark Guitar
Dark Guitar

I heard the dark guitar playing our tune
In a different shadow of the same old moon
I was Bonnie you were Clyde down at the store
But I don’t want you anymore
No not like way back then, when night was day
But the past is a country far away

I see him comin’ when the wind, blows on by
Over the fields where the weeds grow high
Hear the back gate creak, but it’s battened right down
Pick up your guitar boy and turn right around
Yeah, pick up your guitar boy and turn right around

Don’t you come near, don’t fool around here, who do you love
No don’t you come near, don’t fool around here, tell me who do you love
It’s not me you’re lookin’ for go on back to your love

I heard the dark guitar playing our tune
In a different shadow of the same of old moon
But don’t bathe the light, no don’t sing me that song
I’m not what you’re looking for, I’m not what you want
If you ever get close
I’ll be long gone
Track Name: Samphire
Samphire (a true story about when I went for a ride on a cloud dragon)

Come spiral up hitch a ride past sea ivory, we can look down from the top of the world

Samphire, samphire, centaury sing to me, bring to me centuries back from the sea
Waves keep on rolling and cloud pictures beckon, climb up pierce the sky on dragon ride so high

Look back at long ago, lavender stories and bracken house games take us back to the sea
Star fish in slo-mo and yellow scaled mountainsides, feed my soul, energise, dragon ride so high

Hemlock remember, solanum siesta the sand man says I’ll get you, catch as catch can
‘Lantis adventure, true dare kiss or promise, there’s only one answer, you know what it is?
The answer is – yes!

Come spiral up hitch a ride past sea ivory, we can look down from the top of the world
Track Name: Morpheus
Morpheus

You are the night, protector of my sleep
Bring a thousand brothers and sisters, and a suitcase of dreams
With wings to fly in the gun metal grey
Of a thunderous sky, you whip my dreams away

Oh you play the part well you move like everyone I know
With counterfeit look, touch, feel reveal what’s coming up in show time
Oh when it’s show time

Whatever form you take, c’mon and catch my wave
Come into my bed then take me back to your poppy seed cave
Oh watch me sleep, oh watch me sleep, oh watch me...

And when the light, takes the gun metal grey
From a wondrous night, you rip my heart away
Track Name: The Time Traveller
The Time Traveller

I’m the time traveller and my story will break your heart. I’m the time traveller and I’ve been searching through all time for you. Oh my love I won’t stop running until I find you. On a seamless night when we’re together we’ll kiss forever. But I’m the time traveller, I can’t stay where I belong. You taste my love and in the morning I’ll be gone. And all that’s left is the waiting, the longing. I’m the time traveller, I‘ll break your heart.

I’ll come and get you on a seamless night…

Palms up, I remember. You found me in a clearing by the meadow. You come and go, and I miss you when you’re gone. I will wait, do what you will. Palms up, I remember. I heard the gun shot but you keep me hanging on. One day I know you’ll find me by the lake. Meet me there, I’m waiting still.

Come and get me on a seamless night…
