Kid Astray – Still Chasing Nothing

Benjamin Giørtz, Elizabeth Wu, Alex Meek, Even Steine, Håkon Carlin and Jakob Bechmann – for it is they – may have only just finished school, but their musical studies have already earned them massive summer festival slots back home, critical plaudits from the likes of Rolling Stone and Radio 1 and a premiere of their brilliant Taking You With Me on Noisey. With sky-scraping hooks and earworm melodies, Kid Astray are here to make you fall in love with expertly-crafted music all over again. Mainly produced by Cross in Manchester, the album – which will also include Take You With Me and No Easy Way Out from the Liverpool sessions – showcases the extent to which the band have evolved in the last three or four years. One of the band’s favourites at the moment is the near six minute, low slung epic Not A Kid Anymore (“I love how this track turned out,” says Benjamin excitedly), while tracks like Walking and Diver take the template of those early songs and refines it all still further. “I think our sound’s more thought through now,” says Benjamin with the air of someone who’s been making music for a lifetime. “The sound has definitely expanded – it sounds a lot bigger.” This, you feel, is just the beginning for Kid Astray.

The song is produced by Joe Cross and mixed by Jon Gray, it is on Kid Astray’s debut album “Home Before the Dark” coming out March 16th in Scandinavia and shortly after in the rest of the world. We know a lot of people say “Home Before Dark” instead but we liked the way it sounded with “the” in it better.

Kid Astray’s forthcoming album ‘Home Before the Dark’ is slated for a March 16 release via Norwegian label Cosmos. Says Giørtz on what to expect from the band’s debut album: – As for the record, you can expect to see a clear development for us as a band and you’ll of course get a solid pop album with some really hard-hitting tunes.

Kid Astray – Still Chasing Nothing Lyrics:
Let’s write a brand new chapter,
So we can get our lives on track
Let’s try and pull it together,
We need this burden off our backs
So nothing cracks now

Oh, how long will it take before we hit the bottom?
Oh, how long can we sing before we realize that,
We were never more than this
We’re still chasing nothing
We were never more than this
We’re still chasing nothing

Everyone’s got a nightmare,
But that keeps the breathing down the neck
We’re still tryina get there,
But we needed to get this off our chest
So we can rest now.

Oh, how long will it take before we hit the bottom?
Oh, how long can we sing before we realize that,
We were never more than this, We’re still chasing nothing
We were never more than this, We’re still chasing nothing

We can beat this town, hey, We can beat this town, hey
We can beat this town, hey, We can beat this town, hey

Oh my God, what have we done?
STILL CHASING NOTHING!!
(x2)
We were never more than this
We’re still chasing nothing
We were never more than this
We’re still chasing nothing
