Cleopold – Down In Flames

Cleopold is an Australian singer-songwriter whose debut EP was just snapped up by Detail Co., a boutique record label owned and curated by Chet Faker. Its lead single, “Down In Flames,” will serve as Cleopold’s emergence as an independent artist. Based in Los Angeles, Cleopold has penned multiple singles for Miami Horror and Cassian, while collaborating with other Australian luminaries like Bag Raiders and Chet Faker. Cleopold provided the lead vocals for Miami Horror’s latest single, “Love Like Mine,” and Cassian’s recent club hit, “Running,” while honing his compositional chops on film scores for directors like Roman Coppola.

Cleopold - Down In Flames

Cleopold crafts blunt, honest songs with a confidence and sonic precision rarely heard in an emerging artist. His shapeshifting voice is deliberately hard to pin down, and places Cleopold in a musical territory all his own. Cleopold will return to Australia in August for a national tour supporting Miami Horror. With the keys to Chet Faker’s Melbourne recording studio, he also plans to pen his debut LP in his label-owner’s throne—a seat still warm from composing the award-winning album, Built On Glass.

Cleopold – Down In Flames

Cleopold – Down In Flames Lyrics:
It’s not that hard to see
Maybe you belong with me
I swear it’s just a breeze
Rain drops are all empathy
My brain keeps getting older
My clock keeps ticking over
There’s a time to set you free
I won’t keep backing a moment
So why are you stalling?
Get your hand off my shoulder!
Don’t kiss me, it’s over
No, no, no more playing guitars
Sing the songs from the start
Like a movie so old,
Running in my head over and over

Do you think about me,
As every time I think about you?
Baby, when you’re in my arms
I go down in FLAMES with you!
Do you think about me,
As every time I think about you?
It’s never gonna be mutual
As I go down in FLAMES,
Down in flames for you!

A different color everyday you’re gone
There’s must be something wrong,
I can’t keep holding on!
Flying in the garden
Where we first started
Only in my dreams,
Can I jump a train till October?
Back when my life was still sober?
Pick our favorite hairline,
We can leave all behind!
We can take to the sky,
and hope to get home alive
This moment of truth is here me breathing with you

Do you think about me,
As every time I think about you?
Baby, when you’re in my arms
I go down in FLAMES with you!
Do you think about me,
As every time I think about you?
It’s never gonna be mutual
As I go down in FLAMES,
Down in flames for you!

As I go down in FLAMES,
Down in flames for you!
Baby, when you’re in my arms
I go down in FLAMES with you!
Do you think about me,
As every time I think about you?
It’s never gonna be mutual
As I go down in FLAMES,
Down in flames for you!

Down in flames for you, Down in flames for you
Down in flames for you, Down in flames for you
