about

There are groups that believe that a song is still the greatest form of musical expression, and they reinforce this by releasing singles, like it was done in the 50’s. Nowadays, though, it’s an act of rebellion, but bands like THE CLIENTELE have successfully converted their collections of small vinyls into a myth in and of themselves, a precious object of desire of collectionists and pop lovers. THE LODGER are the biggest news in pop in recent years. With two incredible albums that already light up our shelves and that have made them a center of attention of both critics and the public, the quartet from Leeds led by Ben Siddall also made a place for themselves in the scene with three incredible singles (obviously impossible to find today), each released on a different independent label. “I Think I Need You” will be the fifth 7” of their career, the first with Elefant (of course, in a precious green color) and a new demonstration of their incredible ability to make beautiful pop melodies that are simultaneously full of happiness and timeless, and that has an attention grabbing trumpet presence. “We realized that we’d never released a ‘slow’ single before, so we decided that it was the perfect time to fix that” and here we have this mid-tempo rectification that is “I Think I Need You” and its fantastic and crystalline guitar arrangements. And for those who enjoy LODGER’s love of THE SMITHS, “I Can’t Stop” is one of those songs that you will beg on your knees for the DJ to play to brighten a Saturday night. “This Is Good Fortune” has one of those choruses that you need to remember every morning before getting on the bus that takes you to your daily routine, just to have a bit of sunshine every day, while “That Guy” is, as they themselves admit, the shortest song they’ve ever written, an explosive crescendo that barely takes a minute to blast. At Elefant we are deeply proud to collaborate in increasing the size of that object of desire we mentioned before, and that some of LODGER’s incredible compositions are now part of our catalog.

Track Name: I Think I Need You
I'm feeling a little homesick blues
And it's something that I cannot explain
Without blowing a fuse

I'm feeling a little tired and low
And it's something that I cannot explain
Seems a long time ago

Don't tell me it's not real
And don't go mocking the way I feel
It's so clear and so true
But I'm leaving it up to you

I wrote it in the stars
And to this day I wear your scars
It's so clear and so pure
I think I need you but I can't be sure
I can't be sure

I'm leaving on the first flight home
'Cause it's something that I cannot explain
From the end of a phone

A million reasons and a thousand ways
Hundred letters in seven days
Minutes and seconds
Then a heartbeat away

Don't tell me it's not real
And don't go mocking the way I feel
I've fastened myself to you
I'm sticking to you like glue

I wrote things in my book
When you gave me a second look
But I still feel insecure
I think I need you but I can't be sure
I can't be sure
I can't be sure
I can't be sure
Track Name: I Can't Stop
This is new to you
And you will make mistakes
This is cool
In about a thousand ways

But there's always someone left
Crying in their drink
Trying not to think

And I can't stop
Your fateful decline
And I won't feel
So guilty this time
No

If this is news to you
Then it has come too late
I have been a fool
And it's been a long, long wait

But there's always someone left
Forcing out a smile
But that is not your style

And I can't stop
The ticking of hands
And I can't stop
The making of plans
No

And I can't keep
My feet on the brake
And I have let
My feelings escape
No
Track Name: This Is Good Fortune
You're in heaven
Just for seven little days
Leave the city
What a pity
I'm amazed

Let's go southwards
But not backwards
Let's be brave
Reach the coastline
It's a good time
To be saved

Why do I see tears running down your face

Hey hey
This is good fortune
I can see what it's like
To be joyful
Hey hey
Look at me standing
I'm not losing my balance
At all now

Had a bad time
Was a steep climb
But I'm here
I was worried
So I hurried
Persevered

Why do I see sadness living in your eyes
Do I see lovers saying their goodbyes
Do I see tears running down your face

I can see what it's like
To be joyful
I can see what it's like
Track Name: That Guy
Wait 'til I get you home
And we'll dance all night
Ah
You wanted me
But I'm too scared to be
That guy

Wait 'til we get back home
It will be alright
Ah
You're here with me
But I'm too scared to be
That guy

Wait 'til I get you home
And we'll dance all night
Ah
You wanted me
But I'm too scared to be
I am too scared to be
I am too scared to be
That guy
