about

For the past five years, RevState has been writing, singing, producing, engineering, painting, dreaming, and tweaking all those knobs in Red Dwarf Studio, with a plan to complete a brand new 13 track LP. Finally, Viridian Resonance is here: analogue laden electronoize that steps across the barriers of genre and sound, bringing you to a place where advanced technology, vintage musical equipment, and the philosophies of the now disbanded Viridian Design Movement will be used to help save this ebbing azure star we call the earth, and provide one hell of a soundtrack to accomplish it to. Thirteen tracks for a total length of 55:48:02.

Track Name: yggdrassil
ragnarok is the chain saws and fires it is the black smoke it is the lead and kevlar it is happening now the gods the ceos and kings fighting the selfish fight for more power stepping on the mass graves of their own followers and so yggdrassil will fall from the termites called man and there will be no leaves left to protect our children and no roots to grow anew in the loss of this fire i've lost the shimmering in my eyes the circuits have all shorted out and the soul grows numb the blue has faded to black and the sea has stood still and the warmth in my blood has frozen in lines like sand

Track Name: bit lip
at a coffee bar
at the station
i bit my lip
blood dripped into the cream
i still drank it
i was just waiting for you
and you never came
why
and you never came
waiting for you
an endless retort
an endless pain of an endless sort
let's dance
but
i'm alone
at the dance club
you left me
i sat with our drinks
once again
i bit my lip
it dripped into the drink
salty in a vodka presence
ends up to be a timid drink for a strong alcoholic
but you never came back
why
you never came back
i threw away the drink
waiting for you
an endless retort
an endless pain of an endless sort
let' s dance
but
i'm alone
