Irish synthpop duo, Empire State Human make a surprise return with a new
free to download single called “Christmas Long Gone”.
Mastered by Martin Bowes (Attrition) at The Cage Studio www.facebook.com/thecagestudios
and artwork by Brian O’Malley www.facebook.com/brianomalley.director

The song is a melancholic, minimal wave/synthwave ballad with sparse electronics and atmospheric vocals.
Lead singer Aidan Casserly says – “This new song came about very quickly and easily. A very enjoyable experience considering the melancholic song that it is. It’s a very personal song, about the death of a family member this year. I’ve found great comfort in dealing with loss through my songwriting and performing. I guess that’s why we’ve 17 releases since 2002.”

“Christmas Long Gone” follows the bands July release of their most recent album “Soul of the Machine”.

Empire State Human are currently recording a new studio album, called “The Dark”, for release in 2014.

CHRISTMAS LONG GONE

THE WINTER CALLS
AS THE ICE ENFOLDS
THE MIRROR COLD
THE MIND, THE SOUL
NO LULLABIES
OR TIME TO CRY
DELIVER US FROM FEAR TONIGHT

CHRISTMAS LONG GONE
SEE THE MEMORIES FREEZE
SEE THE WONDER WE NEVER CAN FEEL
IT ISN’T FROM HOPE
IT ISN’T FROM DREAMS

I DREAMT THAT I
IN A MOMENT IN TIME
WAS TWICE THE SIZE I AM TONIGHT
ESCAPE THE WALLS
THAT CLOSE WITHIN
BECOME DETACHED
OF MIND AND SKIN

CHRISTMAS LONG GONE
SEE THE MEMORIES FREEZE
SEE THE WONDER WE NEVER CAN FEEL
IT ISN’T FROM HOPE
IT ISN’T FROM DREAMS
IT’S CHRISTMAS LONG GONE
[CHRISTMAS LONG GONE]
IT’S CHRISTMAS LONG GONE
[CHRISTMAS LONG GONE]

NEVER FEEL THE LOVE AGAIN
NEVER TOUCH YOUR SKIN AGAIN
NEVER KISS AND NEVER HOLD
THOSE MOMENTS LOST
ARE NEVER TOLD
ARE NEVER TOLD
ARE NEVER TOLD
