about

Room 1985 is the of trio Sam Stone, Chris Crysand and John Hulse, delivering a driving mix of post-rock electronica with an incredible psychedelic atmosphere.

The band’s long-awaited debut album was released on the 28th of July 2017 to critical acclaim, leading the band into a series of high profile live dates around the UK. Following up their impressive debut, Room 1985 are set to release their sophomore album. Entitled The Bliss, this 8 track opus tells the tale of a couple living together but remaining separate due to the impersonal barriers to human communication placed on them via the phenomena of social media. Chris Crysand describes the album’s inspiration and concept:

“The Bliss concept album starting with a story that is based on the addiction to social media and the impact this has to a couple living together. They ignore each other in real life while claiming to be happy in the virtual world – a common situation here in 2018. The story takes a stark turn as aliens invade Earth, conquering the planet and changing the whole basis of human society using social media to view individual worth rather than people’s actual characteristics and personality.

Musically the album sits comfortably between the darkwave atmosphere and sound of the 80s, 90s metal and our signature electronic sounds. There are hints of our prog backgrounds here and there too.”

With tears in my eyes
i will smile, i will smile
with shadows perished by
the peace in my mind
i will cry, with shadows perished by
i will be the daylight

With tears in my eyes
I will smile, i will smile
the shadows perished by
the peace in my mind
i will cry, the shadows perished by
i will be the daylight

Track Name: The Bliss (feat. Emily Oldfield)
"Under a ce-cerebral virtual/real world
Under a ce-ce-cerebral virtual/real world i'm alone" (x4)

In your arms
one becomes safe
feeling warm in your embrace
The feeling comes in waves and i just want you

Today, Tonight, with you right now
I'm in
It's just the light breeze
someday , somehow, it's true!
I will finally find you!
Like the light of the eternal bliss

In your arms
one becomes safe
feeling warm in your embrace
The feeling comes in waves and i just want you


"Under a ce-cerebral virtual/real world
I'm a ce-ce-cerebral virtual/real world i'm alone" (x4)

Today, Tonight, with you right now
I'm in
It's just the light breeze
someday , somehow, it's true!
I will finally find you!
Like the light of the eternal bliss (x2)
Track Name: Attention Seeker (feat. MOI SAINT)
Gloating and Boasting
Feeling and Looking
Confidence is silent
but hear me!
Beauty is inspiring
then like me!
Look at my smile
but please me!
Duck face collide
Then watch me!

I want to get inside your head
See the world through your eyes
Touch the ground with your feet
I want to hear what you hear

Forgive me

For not understanding

You are only mortal filled with blood and bone.

All your life begins with the senses

We are only mortal filled with blood and bone

I need to know I'm alive
For the reminder that I'm loved
for no reason
i will show you what i'm not

I want to get inside your head
See the world through your eyes
Touch the ground with your feet
I want to hear what you hear

Forgive me

For not understanding

We are only mortal filled with blood and bone.

All your life begins with the senses

We are only mortal filled with blood and bone (x2)
Track Name: Snowy White
I'm a bit confuse probably
but i'm doing this for you
I need you to walk with me
We need to see this through
In a way i'll help you see
we need to understand we're breaking free
melting away the snow white with my passion and restraint

I'm just giving you my heart
Falling down no matter where we are
I've lost control with my selfish pain of being apart
I'm just giving up this far
falling down while i'm look up to the light
i've lost control with my slepless night

There's nothing left to do
Will i ever be good enough for you
to tear down to tear down this wall
There's nothing left to do
Will i ever be good enough for you
To tear down to tear down this wall

I'm a bit frustrated honestly
and there's nothing i can do
and don't you dare to disagree
because you know i speak the truth
in the way i'll help you see
we need to understand we're breaking free
melting away the snowy white with my passion and restraint

I'm just giving you my heart
Falling down no matter where we are
I've lost control with my selfish pain of being apart
I'm just giving up this far
falling down while i'm look up to the light
i've lost control with my slepless night

There's nothing left to do
Will i ever be good enough for you
to tear down to tear down this wall (x6)
Track Name: The Arrival (feat. Vickie Harley)
Time to feel connected today
like all of you, like all of us anyway
I'm so tired, I'm so done,
Now that they're here to blackout the sun
I'm just looking for something real, i'm just waiting to something to feel
I just want you to take my away somewhere far from this place

Now they are here
but i don't care i need a pic
Cause I Am Just As Guilty As The Next Man.
i'm gonna be less important than them

We want to see ourselves because
we're afraid that nobody else
will ever want to capture us
in a camera flash

Time to feel connected today
like all of you, like all of us anyway

I'm just looking for something real,
I'm just waiting to something feel
I just want you to take my away somewhere far from this place

Now they are here
but i don't care i need a pic
Cause I Am Just As Guilty As The Next Man
i'm gonna be less important than them

We want to see ourselves because
we're afraid that nobody else
will ever want to capture us

Track Name: Awake
My darkness
Has been blessed
I have been
Given glimpses...
Enough
To
sustain me
These
Last
Few
Miles.

Miles
Smile (x7)
Few Miles
Smile (x7)

My darkness has been blessed,
i have been given glimpses at best
Enough to sustain me
Enough to carry me home
These last few miles are feeling rough,
It takes its toll on the ones you love
The road ahead looks dangerous
And i will go on
These last few miles
A better man i am, with you by my side
Never let my hand go (x3)

SPECIAL:
Sleep,Sleep,Sleep right now oh my little baby
When you wake you'll see the real world
If I'm not mistaken...
Face your life
Its pain,
Its pleasure,
Don't you ever surrender
Face your life with pride!
Oooh Little baby of mine
For such a little time
We dance upon this earth
For just a fleeting second
Can our song be heard
So in the days to come
I am to be found
In every new red dawn
We dance upon this earth

Wake wake wake up!
One two three four!

`

CHORUS
These last
Few Miles
These last
Few Miles
These last
Few Miles
Your soul
Is safe
With
Me.
Your soul
Is safe
With
Me. (Ad lib)
