The Parker Morris Committee Here, here's the idea for all New life in the clouds the future's clear For all, all working men can be home with their entire family Light, bright painted white décor rooms larger than you've ever known Bulletin 6 Space in the home Mandatory Dimensions set Make, make no mistake the course has been set Set in cement no turning back You will accept 100 Feet Tall Oh am I still the strong one? Lost my balance Caught in the sand Now that it's all been buried I'm slipping down One golden grain Dark and dank they wait in shadows Numb, asleep stepping blindly in the dark Stranded on an island Hoping to be saved I don't want to be 100 feet tall Young and old above and below dissipated, left with isolation locked away with all these lonely, tortured memories It traps you here in this stare In Happy Homes Controversial planning of the city soul On paper roll Visionary dwellings in an urban world from poll to prole It's the ideal goal for happy homes Sanctuary, hygiene conscience, litter free in harmony Building future generations empathy for humanity In perpetuity

Astroglade The Lawn is standing tall Welcome one and all Close up communities South facing balconies Hang Like Man Seep out leeches Hang like Man Concretion elan Stairwells Wealth has gone Ebbed away Pounding guns reduced to silence Sovereign ring Threads to bear Head to toe in pink and black plastic Indigo static In tonic park I take the meal From sanitary polythene But still I growl and start to bark Howl at phantoms in the stairwells The Floor Design Undermine this wreak of flawed design Held to account for vicious crimes cease this nightmare sorrow this flawed design Undermine this flawed design

about

Asteroid Deluxe's debut album The Lawn was released on November 3rd, 2017. The album's concept is inspired by the dichotomy of the post war utopian vision of high rise living contrasting with it's subsequent neglect and notoriety.
The two part suite involves interlocking pieces juxtaposing overtly lyrical themes with melancholy and a creeping sense of dread. Musically sitting somewhere amongst a psychedelic melange of early 70's Floyd, Serge Gainsbourg, Folk Horror, Air and Portishead. The album climaxes within a maelstrom of tribal rhythms and a devastating synth led barrage. The intended effect is to leave you gasping from breath.
