about

Two years in the making, "Brave New Worlds" is the epitome of the "Space Dub" sound the band has been working on at it's live shows. Combining synth pop sensibilities with dub elements using effects and synthesizers and samplers.

We would like to thank everyone (including YOU) who has supported us, including the following:

Don White (for taking a chance and asking us to play at a show before we had any songs!)

Mark Hjorthoy for listening to our first show (mentioned above) and featuring us on his radio show called Trapped in Motion.

Dark SIde of the KUBE

Dan Dada Records

Tom Murphy

Jeremy Atkins (Toothgnasher)

Tribble

Ryan Peru

Boys of Bluetown Electronica (Bluetown Electronica on Sheppey FM) for featuring us on their show.

Legendary Pink Dots for performing a show where we first met. (also, being a HUGE influence on the music)

Mitch Messmore

Fernando (eHpH)

MasterClock

Hepster Pat

Morlox

ChurchFire

Catdog

Randall Frazier

Scolex Records

WEATNU

Michael and Marty Danahy

Peter Donovan

Cynthia Davies

Yvonne and Brendan

and EVERYONE else..

We love you all!

It should be noted that Keldari Station are not fans of current mastering processes, and this album was mixed so that you will play it LOUD just like your old records. And just like your old records, you may want to turn it up or down more on certain songs. Or decrease the bass. Or increase the bass. Or however suits your liking. This is an active listening experience!

Track Name: Worlds in Stasis
The future lies in front of me
but lies are all that I can see
Words are now a loaded gun
I hate the way that it's become

I never cared to come in first
but here we are, so do your worst
I'm making all the rules this day
here in this game I'm forced to play

The truth we hold shall be our own
The worlds we make will stand alone

There's nothing else to hold me back
besides the strength of your attack
so now I'll make myself immune
here I learn to heal the wounds

and now I've learned this lesson well
I will bid to thee farewell.

The truth we hold shall be our own
The worlds we make will stand alone
Track Name: Mothership come to Babylon
where can it be?
where are we now?
deep in the dream,
lost in there somehow.
have we lost faith?
let's not give in
when things get dark
it seems we can't win

Mothership, come to Babylon
We are ready for the other place
like a rocket out of Avalon
with all the magic of the morning sun
is it time for us to demonstrate
all the ways that we can unify?
rise up, time to elevate
raise yourself up to the sky

time to let go
and lighten our load
clean up our mess
and pack up, you know?
this is a place
deep in our minds
alone we have lost
together, we'll find

Mothership, come to Babylon
We are ready for the other place
like a rocket out of Avalon
with all the magic of the morning sun
is it time for us to demonstrate
all the ways that we can unify?
rise up, time to elevate
raise yourself up to the sky
Track Name: In Time
in time, I've come to understand
the kind of power in our hands
in space, and where I look, I find
the things we control with our own minds
this place, of which we like to complain
we have created all the same
this skin, we placed ourselves in
to deny recollection of all we have been

time to wake into our dreams
welcome to forever now
always is, was, and shall be
seems we have forgotten how

these words, which we say are just sounds
can manifest what we see all around
these hands, when not busy making chains
fashion the wings that fly over these plains
these seeds, we spread around on this earth
could bring to fruition the roots of rebirth
and our hearts, when they align with our will
turn dreams to reality further still

time to wake into our dreams
welcome to forever now
always is, was, and shall be
seems we have forgotten how
Track Name: Hymnal
this time
i hear you
call me
my lord
these words
are spoken
to bring
you here

brighten
these shadows
so I
can see
shining
your lantern
to lead
the way

lend me
the power
give me
the strength
to spread
this light
through these
dark days

love is
the answer
hope is
the path
freedom
from our darkness
our soul's
liberty
Track Name: Moving Forward, Looking Back
this time
let's open up our minds
and who we find
could be ourselves
and if we recognize
the lies
the ties that bind us
simply melt
maybe
the answers that we seek
really are closer
than we think
a look inside
with our own eyes
is realized
within a blink

moving forward
while looking back
how can we be moving forward
if we're looking back

If we deny
the things inside
we try to hide
or cause us fear
you can believe
that we'll succeed
at only drawing
these things near
we can't transcend
if we pretend
that which we run from
isn't real
such false sincerity
can only be
a mask
for how we feel

moving forward
while looking back
how can we be moving forward
if we're looking back
Track Name: Earth and Sky
hands in the ground

adrift in the sea

head in the sky

fire in our bellies

in our darkest pit

a lantern burns true

through our brightest days

the night still remains

the stars will be shining on

for years after we are gone

from ashes our flesh was made

as ashes in ground we lay

but we are the earth and sky

fundamental as brother, sister

this is why angels die

disillusion will bring isolation again

we all are the hawk

we are the birds prey

we all are the shepherd

though we each are his sheep

on this sacred ground

we are the seed
within us the flower

throughout us the weeds

the stars will be shining on

for years after we are gone

from ashes our flesh was made

as ashes in ground we lay

but we are the earth and sky

fundamental as brother, sister

this is why angels die

disillusion will bring isolation again
Track Name: In the Gilded Sunshine
in the gilded sunshine
it's plain to see
the separate threads of
our reality
the eternal darkness
can cease to be
from the light that never ends

in the gilded sunshine
it's come to pass
we have the presence
of futures past
such perpetuity can never last
as a means to an end

in the gilded sunshine
there is no shame
we're all connected
so no one's to blame
one individual can't carry the pain
let's cause it's reign to end

in the gilded sunshine
we're never cold
never too young
never too old
this new reality can soon unfold
if we let the old one end.
Track Name: the Watchers
well, we're watching, like we watch things on TV
always watching: the voyeurs of reality
what are we doing instead of looking over there
as we're only judging, and pretending that we care?

it's time for acting instead of wishing we were free
things are changing and it's obvious to see
there's no wanting if we're living in the now
it's just simply being and then seeing all around

if there's a meaning, why don't we learn it as we go
since it's fleeting, as if we're never meant to know?
without warning all our senses can align
making rhyme of reason as we're looking for the signs

so let's stop waiting for it to be our turn
it's really happening and time to use all that we've learned
keep on moving and don't ever turn around
everything is rising and converging on the sound….
Track Name: Stars
Help us find
the place without wanting
with your light
perpetually shining
help us be
the ones with the stars upon ours

rising up
from where we're positioned
calling out
to anyone who'll listen
you can be
the ones with the stars upon yours

it's a time
a cause for celebration
immortalized
amongst the constellations
we've become
the ones with the stars upon ours

co - create
the "fate" of our intention
as we reel
from the sudden realization
that we are
the ones with the stars upon ours
