FORMATS: CD Single Digipak [SOLD OUT] / Digital Single

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

After the release of "The last holy writer" (the sixth album by TREMBLING BLUE STARS), the stand alone "Exploring the shadows" EP features, as always, many previously unreleased tracks. On its CD format you will find four exclusive songs that were recorded as part of the album sessions, and were treated with as much care and given as much time.
The lead song, the sunny and melodic "Beautiful blank", is sung by Beth Arzy. In the form of an infectious, radio-friendly guitar pop song, it tells of an Edie Sedgwick-esque character and is titled after a phrase in Andy Warhol's book "From A To B". Bobby takes the lead vocal on another upbeat guitar pop track, "As easy as being alone", which goes back to the more melancholic and dreamy indie-pop style we have learnt to love from him.

The CD-EP is complete with the introspection meets experimentation of "Outside looking elsewhere", and the more experimental pastures of "And then silence", with its gloomy atmosphere and reverberated vocals. This last song ends up so abruptly ("and then silence") that you can't help but press 'play' and start again. And then again, and again. You're under the spell of the best pop music.

Track Name: Beautiful Blank
She’s a beautiful blank
All lies and tears
She’ll be anything you want her to be

Rich girl ,poor girl, beggar girl, thief
Rich girl, poor girl, beggar girl, thief
Rich girl, poor girl, beggar girl, thief

She is trouble and she is troubled
She is trouble and she is troubled
Fifty pairs of lashes
Every shade of Revlon
Fifty pairs of lashes
Every shade of Revlon
Rich girl, poor girl, beggar girl, thief
Rich girl, poor girl, beggar girl, thief
Rich girl, poor girl, beggar girl, thief

She’s a beautiful blank
All lies and tears
She’ll be anything you want her to be
Rich girl, poor girl, beggar girl, thief
Rich girl, poor girl, beggar girl, thief
Track Name: As Easy As Being Alone
Nothing to become
No act to be found out
The comfort of being alone
Remains
With you around
You just know when it’s right
When there’s no need to lie
It’s as easy as being alone
When solitude departs
As you enter the frame
What is and what was
They feel one and the same
You just know when it’s right
When there’s no need to lie
It’s as easy as being alone
The longing to escape
That cries “enough - no more”
Is never woken by you
There’s no eye on the door
You just know when it’s right
When there’s no need to lie
It’s as easy as being alone
Track Name: Outside Looking Elsewhere
If I try to take a step inside
All confidence just repairs
Too many turned down invitations
Not enough strength to project
Married to my imagination
Always lost outside it
Unnerved by crowds and occasions
I do my best to hide it
I have to try so hard to keep from running
I’m the only one who hears the screaming
A life of dreams
A life of fiction
Almost a ghost
I’ll always travel in the other direction
I’m good at being alone
Everything’s always seemed
More than a little apart from me
You could say I’m barely there
Outside looking elsewhere
Feeling like none of this
Is remotely real
Feeling like I could turn
And walk right out of this world
And walk right out of this world
And walk right out of this world
I have to try so hard to keep from running
I’m the only one who hears the screaming
Track Name: And Then Silence
To disappear
Without a trace
To take my leave
And stay away
A final show
A vanishing act
A last performance
And that’s that
Wouldn’t that be bliss?
Wouldn’t that be bliss?
Be bliss?
Here then gone
Here and then
Silence
Nothing
