Cover the bruises on your back Erase the blisters from your feet I was the Petri-dish for you You’ll be a better man than me The faintest trace of a heartbeat I sat on the edge of my seat I’ve been a test pilot for you You’ll be a better man than me This is the future of the past I keep it in the dark (x2) I must’ve been mistaken for A gardener in a war So bear the weight of my armour Like a warrior in a garden Cover the bruises on your back Erase the blisters from your feet I’ve served a life sentence for you So be a better man than me I must’ve been mistaken for A gardener in a war This is the weight of my armour I’m a warrior in a garden This is the future of the past I keep it in the dark (x2) I’ve been a test pilot for you I must’ve been mistaken for A gardener in a war So bear the weight of my armour Like a warrior in a garden I must’ve been mistaken for A gardener in a war This is the weight of my armour I’m a warrior in a garden

about

Ryan A. James (aka Man Without Country) returns with the nostalgia-tinged "Bloods, Side A" - his new EP inspired by human relationships.

Drawing influence from Com Truise and The Japanese House, lead single "Gardener in a War" blends warped synthesizers and elastic bass-lines with fragile vocals and self-deprecating lyrics (“I was the Petri-dish for you. You’ll be a better man than me”).

The EP’s second track "Savannah" presents a conflicting juxtaposition of bouncing arpeggios, beneath Yazoo-style vocals that recount episodes of sleep regression and feelings of claustrophobia. Whereas closing track "Ultra-Nightmare" is dark and moody, evoking a sense of sadness and unease.
