Where are these lives? We let them slip away Where is the time we once had? Forgotten numbers we hide in the past In factories and playgrounds, churches and graveyards We burn out tonight… WE KEEP FADING AWAY, TIME AFTER TIME WE KEEP FALLING IN BLACK HOLES WE KEEP MAKING MISTAKES, LIFE AFTER LIFE WE’RE STILL STUCK IN THESE BLACK HOLES Where are our eyes? Cause we don’t see Scattering ashes to eternity Where are our hearts while we watch these stars? Fade one by one into the unknown We burn out so bright… WE KEEP FADING AWAY, TIME AFTER TIME WE KEEP FALLING IN BLACK HOLES WE KEEP MAKING MISTAKES, LIFE AFTER LIFE WE’RE STILL STUCK IN THESE BLACK HOLES WE KEEP FADING AWAY… WE KEEP FADING AWAY… WE KEEP FADING AWAY… WE KEEP FADING AWAY… WE KEEP FADING AWAY, TIME AFTER TIME WE KEEP FALLING IN BLACK HOLES WE KEEP MAKING MISTAKES, LIFE AFTER LIFE WE’RE STILL STUCK IN THESE BLACK HOLES IN THESE BLACK HOLES… IN THESE BLACK HOLES… IN THESE BLACK HOLES…………….

Sometimes Life beats you down The world beats you down And you crawl alone There’s always Someone who’ll hurt you Someone who’ll use you If you let them But you can follow the light, follow the light Follow the light SO DON’T BREAK DOWN ON ME DON’T STOP BELIEVING THAT YOU CAN BE So now The man stands over you Ready to walk on you If you lie down So get up Stand eye to eye Stand up and fight And control your life And follow the light, follow the light Follow the light SO DON’T BREAK DOWN ON ME DON’T STOP BELIEVING THAT YOU CAN BE SO DON’T FADE ON ME NOW’S THE TIME TO SEIZE WHAT YOU WANNA BE WANT TO BE… SO DON’T BREAK DOWN ON ME DON’T STOP BELIEVING THAT YOU CAN BE SO MAKE THIS MOMENT RIGHT MAKE THIS PERFECT LIFE AND KEEP FOLLOWING THE LIGHT SO MAKE THIS MOMENT RIGHT MAKE THIS PERFECT LIFE AND KEEP FOLLOWING THE LIGHT

So many years have come and gone But it’s not yet the final act There are still more melodramas to come If I could live forward Instead of falling back Then maybe this time would be my own But I’m still clinging to The memories of you And I can’t move on And I’m still clinging to The memories of you I keep making plans That are written in the sand Walked over by my own footprints I’m old and I’m wise But I’m still terrified That this life is not my own to live Cause I’m still clinging to The memories of you And I can’t move on And I’m still clinging to The memories of you And I don’t want to say goodbye But now is the time And I don’t want to say goodbye But now is the time And I don’t want to say goodbye But now is the time And I don’t want to say goodbye But now is your time Now is my time Now is our time

about

Black Holes is the debut EP from singer / songwriter Gavin Chappell-Bates.

This truly emotive three tracker kick starts with the opening bravado of the title track ‘Black Holes’. A trade mark opener reminiscent of Surfer Rosa and the late 80’s pre grunge scene with the quiet verse leading to the inevitable explosion of a chorus.

‘Follow The Light’ follows with a compelling and almost heart wrenching intro where Gavin once again comes up trumps with a bombastic catchy chorus that sticks like glue to the memory. Gavin’s influences are worn clear and proud upon his sleeve with this track a definite nod toward 90’s era eyeliner wearing bands and trash guitars.

Everything is then stripped back for the conclusion of the EP with ‘Writing In The Sand’; a beautifully inspired arrangement and a rather fitting and impressive finale to a wonderful debut.

“Vocally fantastic, lyrically supreme… the music is just pure, honest and uplifting.”

Rock Bandom

"… a song with sensitivity, flair and, most of all, heart. It is skilfully emotive, as opposed to artificially upbeat."

Millie Brierley

“…songs and performances that display the potential for an exciting full-length album.”
