<o>


Numbers Are Futile are an electronic duo with no sonic comfort zone.
Synths, samples and drums weave a soundtrack for dreams of liberation, in a universe where a subsonic bass is the ruler and a human voice floats above and beyond.

<o>

"Numbers are Futile have clearly achieved that rare mind-altering power that we often dub 'psychedelic', without banking on handy signposts like wah pedals or drug references."
Drowned in Sound, 8/10

"Spacey, fuzzy electronica, full of cascading synths, juddering, tribal drums and faraway vocals singing of fire and oblivion."
- The List ☆☆☆☆

"A truly unique listening experience"
Sly Vinyl

"Errors, Steve Reich, Tangerine Dream and Vangelis flash past the windscreen as adrenaline injections pummel the heart over and over again."
- Sunday Herald

“Unusual, unique and very interesting”
- Vic Galloway, BBC Radio Scotland

"A very interesting atmospheric record"
- Steve Lamacq, BBC Radio 6

“An achingly brutal and intense record. Fresh, mysterious and completely honest”
- Podcart

“I was blown away. I found them utterly arresting”
- Through the Wire

Track Name: The Great Chimera
Days creep in slow
Rising from dirt
Words like black knives
Cut through your time
Engines machines
Turn off your dreams
Your dangerous mind
It's your free machine gun

Still life ends

You'll be the one
Storming out
Storming out
Lies won't bring you answers

Still life ends

You'll be the one
Storming out
Storming out
Lies won't bring you answers

If it is what you thought it was
Lucky you, you're the one telling us
Track Name: We Float
My skin
Is not what it seems
These hands
Belong to white shadows
The light has come

We ride away on black fire
In Astral Life
The sky will open upon us
In Astral Life

I feel the light that runs through me
We float into the warm shadows
The light has come

We fly into the bright colours
In Astral Life
The sky will open upon us
In Astral Life
Track Name: Monster
There's no comfort here
it's now what i was told
I'm powerless
there's no green grass to grow

Words are obsolete
my skin is scarred
but my fist grew big

You are the rifle
that shoots me down
I am the hound dog
chasing you around
a heartbeat behind you
vengeance is here
there's no more fear
to bring me down

I become
the monster

I become
the fighter
Track Name: Oblivion Days
Feed me weird things
Mighty one
Hope is lost
This day is done

Days are done

Is it yesterday again
if today looks just the same

Days are done

This day is done
What's left to find
Are these the words
We hear at night

This day is done
But hope won't die

This day is done
What's left to find
Are these the words
We hear at night

This day is done
But hope won't die
Are these the words
We hear at night

Are we the children of a hopeless sun
Do we believe the days are done

No time to waste, no time to die

Surprises are left undercover
We will dig in, we will discover

No time to waste, no time to die

Are we the losers of the everyday fight
Are these the words we hear at night

No time to waste, no time to die
Track Name: The Threat
You'll be gone
It won't be long
Track Name: Vice > Reason
Feel, don't run
We are calling
Spirits rising
Hearts on fire
Free desire

Feel, don't run
The blood, the beat inside
Keep flashing on your mind

Feel, don't run
Bodies lie in sin
The devil from within
Your skin

You the demon
Bodies screaming
What have you done
You're just a human

A human

Feel, don't run
The blood, the beat inside
Keep flashing on your mind

Feel, don't run
Bodies lie in sin
The devil from within
Your skin

You rip your chest apart
And watch the spirits rising

Demon rising
Track Name: Doomsday Blues
Light shines
All over us today
Who knows
We could be somewhere else

Doomsday Blues
They're waiting there for you
Who knows
This could be something else

She smiled
"It's time for us to go"
She hopes
This will be something else

Me and I
We can be one again
Who knows
This will be something else

Light shines
Light shines

Light shines
all over the way
Light shines
Goodbye Doomsday

Light shines
All over the way
Light shines
Goodbye Doomsday
