about

"Wake Up Slow" is the opening track off Atlas Lab's official debut. The band made a conscious decision to release an "all new" song for their fans who had enjoyed their previous effort which was a three track demo. Atlas Lab opted to keep 3 song off of their demo and have them appear revamped on "Wake Up Slow." One thing I can say about "Wake Up Slow." It's been a long time coming and I personally have been patiently awaiting the release of this EP. There are no "Rock Stars" or ego driven personalities within Atlas Lab. They are a band in every sense of the word. More and more in the present day it seems the "idea" of actually having a band with 3-5 members or more is becoming few and far between. I love the classic organic sense of song development that is heard throughout "Wake Up Slow." It's as though you can tell each and every one of these songs started with nothing more than a little guitar riff or a bass groove; springing in to an ocean of dark lite all nite diners, where the silence has set in and the band with it's gear has long packed up and headed towards their next tour stop. Yet the reflector re appears and throbs as a winded panther. The relentless throb of "Wake Up Slow" is very apparent, however for Atlas Lab's lead singer Solei; outliving the shadow of her massively successful debut with Goldbloc is an increasingly difficult task.https://crlsscllctive.bandcamp.com/album/goldbloc-black-gold
She manages to be the strongest instrument on every song on "Wake Up Slow." Her voice making you feel so at home, yet so alone. The kind of girl that could tell you she's going to kill you and you still hold her hand. Atlas Lab rides a fine line of the classic bar band MO with the classic rock instrumentation: guitar, drums, bass. When I think about it there are so many great vocalists out there that just simply need the right band to be paired up with. This is a storybook memo. Bold as it may seem to say; Solei is the reason you'll listen to Atlas Lab's Wake Up Slow." Fact. Her instrument is as profound as the song itself and cuts through every chance it has. "Wake Up Slow" I admit, doesn't have the instant pop success appeal that Goldbloc had. One thing it is chalk full of; SOUL and hope. Feeling it your veins as you remember who you were before you became who you are.

Track Name: Wake Up Slow
Wake Up Slow

wake up slow
roll around on the covers
with the light coming in through the blinds
the world is made to your design
wake up slow, you’ll be fine

in the morning time, you came along
with your silver eyes and your silver song
you sang it soft, you sang it sweet
you woke me from a dream I had for weeks
wake up slow, you’ll be fine

In the morning time, you drifted out
with your business eyes and your coffee mouth
you saw the sun, you saw the sky
you turned around and went right back inside
wake up slow, you’ll be fine
wake up slow, take your time

-instrumental-

well you wanted love, here’s what you asked for
well you wanted love, here’s your passport

wake up slow, you’ll be fine
wake up slow, take your time
wake up slow, you’ll be fine
wake up slow, take your time
Track Name: Trustfall
hit me a little like a loss of faith
like i could feel the poison
aw drip through my veins
you build and break me down
it's one and the same
go head step on my fire
then ask me for flame
you offer me a seat and
then tell me to stand
feel like my life been movin
aw outside my hands
you take the future make it
black and white
you take the past and make it
whatever you like


trust fall, my trust fall
trust fall, my trust fall


i thought i knew you better
i thought i knew you at all
i'll take one last whatever
i'll take my own downfall
if i could only see the
light in you
then i could maybe see my
own dark spots too


trust fall, my trust fall
trust fall, oh my trust fall
won't you know my trust fall my trust fall
won't you know my trust fall my trust fall

-interlude-
yeah it's whatever you like
yeah it's whatever you like
yeah it's whatever you like
yeah it's whatever you like
Track Name: SteadFast Mind
i was born in a backwater town
far from the jokers, the fools who wear the crown
i woke up with the loneliest sound
i wanna tell you but i don't know don't know how

even if i don't believe in it

i got a steadfast mind yeah i never change
you know i try to be kind but love is strange
you know i try for you baby
baby ill try for you
i got money on my mind and a long way home
i aint got no time to be alone
you know i try for you baby
baby i'll try for you

walk these roads on the back of my eyes
highway run, past all those lonesome signs
done left town but you're still on my mind
i wanna tell you but the words have lost their shine
even if i don't believe in it
would you tell me how
even if i don't believe in it


i got a steadfast mind yeah i never change
you know i try to be kind but love is strange
you know i try for you baby
baby ill try for you
i got money on my mind and a long way home
i aint got no time to be alone
you know i try for you baby
baby i'll try for you
even if i don't believe in itx a million


i got a steadfast mind yeah i never change
you know i try to be kind but love is strange
you know i try for you baby
baby ill try for you
i got money on my mind and a long way home
i aint got no time to be alone
you know i try for you baby

Track Name: Something Good
when i was a young man
i tried most everything
to find a way to make mistakes
but that was all a waste
i found my feet in your summer time
the city it was awake
i turned to those
who had a glow
who seem to have seen something

something good
something good

well the light was fading fast
and the wind was gathering
i couldn't say no, no i didn't know
they told me child, be open and grow
and know man, you might find

something good
something good
something good
something good
something good
Track Name: Castellana
I feel like
a crooked child
it's been too long
since running wild
my voice like
some weight unseen
some sorry thread running
running down my seam

castellana, this is not my mother tongue
i been running
somewhere far beyond the sun
castellana, like a vision in my room
how you came through
you break into my gloom
castellana, this is not my mother tongue,
i been running now for you
somewhere, far beyond the sun
castellana, i will stay with you until
something better
something better


I feel like
a crooked child
it's been too long
since running wild
my voice like
some weight unseen
some sorry thread running
running down my seam

castellana
this is not where i am from
make me feel like
wonder how i got so numb
castellana, days past longer than they should
i would keep you from it
keep you if i could
castellana this is not my mother tongue
i been runnin runnin
somewhere, far beyond the sun
castellana will you follow me until
something better,
something better

I feel like
a crooked child
it's been too long
since running wild
my voice like
some weight unseen
some sorry thread running
running down my seam

runnin down my seam, runnin down my seam

I feel like
a crooked child
it's been too long
since running wild
my voice like
some weight unseen
some sorry thread running
running down my seam
