The Electric Sons

5 albums

After meeting in art school, Andrew Miller and Ben Richards combined their love of all things illustration and design to create colorful and imaginative music that evokes visual stories. In 2012, Miller quit his job as an illustrator with the hit animated series "Archer," and the duo released their first self-titled EP, which was followed by an even more successful release, entitled "Chromaesthesia", in 2014. As a result, The Electric Sons have earned more than 500,000 online streams and have brought their kaleidoscope of infectious hooks and alt-electronic sound to audiences at major festival, like Hangout Fest, Voodoo Fest, Party In the Park, and more. With their third EP slated for spring 2015, The Electric Sons are well on their way to becoming "the biggest electronic band out of the South." -Atlanta Music Guide

Lyrics:

You’re waking up You feel it all around the world. You’re shaken up because it’s nothing like you heard. We just want to pretend. Feels like this life will never end. But we’ll be waking up, and we’ll be coming back for more. It’s just what we’re made for. It’s just what we’re made for. Don’t hold back on what you’re giving Put your back into your living Don’t hold back We’re living in a golden age. Don’t hold back on what you’re giving Put your back into your living Don’t hold back Cause we’re living in a golden age. We’ll have time to spend if things don’t turn out like they should. Head first to the end and all in the pursuit of feeling good. This is what we paid for. Oh But this is what we’re made for. Don’t hold back on what you’re giving Put your back into your living Don’t hold back We’re living in a golden age. Don’t hold back on what you’re giving Put your back into your living Don’t hold back Cause we’re living in a golden age.

Lyrics:

I’ve been far away, but I think I’m coming back, coming back. A thousand years remain The kingdoms that I’m bringing back, bringing back, will crumble to the sea. All the colors are spinning into one, love. You can see it, you can see it now. Clouds around us, great shadows in the sun. You can feel it, you can feel it all. Oh, when you want to hear all the ancient sounds, Oh, when you want to I’ll come back around. Hold on don’t you go. Hold on. The songs we used to sing, all the words are coming back, coming back, as echoes of the sun. All the colors are blending into us now. Can’t you feel it, can’t you feel it all? Oh, when you want to hear all the ancient sounds, Oh, when you want to I’ll come back around. Hold on don’t you go. Hold on. All around all the world is spinning out, oh, you can hear the sound all around all the world is spinning. Oh, when you want to hear all the ancient sounds, Oh, when you want to I’ll come back around. Hold on don’t you go. Hold on.

Lyrics:

Gravity release me. Give me height, elevate me. I’ve be trying to get these flying machines to reach me a higher speed I may never get the science behind it, but still somehow I know There’s going to be wild, wild wind to come and steal my heart. Come and steal my heart. There’s going to be wild, wild wind to come and steal my heart. Come and steal my heart. Gravity escape me. Leave me high, levitate me. I’ve been working all these numbers and figures Crossing the lines in me. I may never get the science behind it, but still somehow I know. There’s going to be wild, wild wind to come and steal my heart. Come and steal my heart. There’s going to be wild, wild wind to come and steal my heart. Come and steal my heart. I want to stay up I want to sail off to where we’ll be lost, where we’ll be lost. I want to stay up I want to sail off to where we’ll be lost, where we’ll be lost.

Open your eyes and all you can see. Is a beautiful world just out of reach. But you can’t find a reason to leave your old ways in the dark it’s what you believe, believe. I need you to listen. I’m reaching for you. But you always will tear me in two. Because you are You are the hardest part Oh, tell me can’t you see? That you are the hardest part I’m drifting out sea. But you always led me through the dark And I need you. But you are, yeah you are the hardest part. Your whole life you tried to climb taller trees Because you can stand to miss a thing but you never see that you can’t be reached. I need you to listen. I’m bleeding for you Because always you tear me in two. Because you are You are the hardest part Oh, tell me can’t you see? That you are the hardest part I’m drifting out sea. But you always led me through the dark And I need you. But you are, yeah you are the hardest part. Because you are You are the hardest part Oh, tell me can’t you see? That you are the hardest part I’m drifting out sea. But you always led me through the dark And I need you. But you are, yeah you are the hardest part.

Lyrics:

Full tilt you’re running Thrown into the race You find your glass to drink to keep the wild wheel spinning You’re moving fast The shifting eyes are watching for the water in your glass to get to overflowing Then you see that your sea is crashing in And it turns you to a ghost without an end When it’s a tidal wave you’re living and you feel like you’re cursed, and this cold, cold water’s not quenching your thirst it’s so cold, so cold. Either way you live it only feels like you’ll burst, and this cold, cold water’s not quenching your thirst it’s so cold, so cold. You’re breaking free Through the swirling in your glass now, you see your paradise when all along you thought you lost it all. Then you see when your sea is crashing in, you’ll never be a ghost without an end. When it’s a tidal wave you’re living and you feel like you’re cursed, and this cold, cold water’s not quenching your thirst it’s so cold, so cold. Either way you live it only feels like you’ll burst, and this cold, cold water’s not quenching your thirst it’s so cold, so cold. Love me and haunt me, save me and want me. Burn with desire, fuel me with fire and I, I’ll be alright. Steal me and keep me, never release me. If I expire I know you’ll be by my side. We’ll be alright, we’ll be alright. When it’s a tidal wave you’re living and you feel like you’re cursed, and this cold, cold water’s not quenching your thirst it’s so cold, so cold. Either way you live it only feels like you’ll burst, and this cold, cold water’s not quenching your thirst it’s so cold, so cold.

Lyrics:

I’m breathing fast I’ve never felt my heart like this It’s sinking in my head I’ve lost my chances to resist So wrap me up, lets keep it tight I’m burning with this firelight I’m too far gone, I can’t hold back My head just keeps spinning oh my head, saying Oh We’re feeding off the energy Oh We’re breathing electricity Feel the chemicals in my mind Burning through the power lines Falling down to the deepest lights and coming up burning and straight to my head saying Oh We’re feeding off the energy Oh We’re breathing electricity I’m saying Oh We’re seeing but we can’t believe Oh We’re breathing electricity Then all at once the world falls down And leaves us sleeping in the clouds The rain will fall and we will hear The clearest sounds of oceans near and dream Electric dreams.

Lyrics:

Come midnight sun, cast your glow Well I’m climbing trees in the cold When these stars in the sky were stars in my head She was a breath sweet heat in my bed But I’m still so cold Still so cold Eclipses filling up my head tonight Eclipses filling up my head tonight I feel this height start to move It pulls back and forth as I reach for you But these stars in the sky, stars in my head Were just shifting shadows in the end And you’re still so cold Still so cold Eclipses filling up my head tonight Eclipses filling up my head tonight When the sky you want Is coming up! Eclipses filling up my head tonight Eclipses filling up my head tonight

Lyrics:

Wake up A spinning wheel seems to navigate When I broke free I stole a ship that took me out to sea But I started sinking like a stone And my ocean turns to cold But in this whirling pool that grows I feel my colors start to blend with the shore My yellows turn to gold Yellows turn to gold Save me All these tidal waves won’t let me be So I breathe deep And dive to find myself some distant peace ‘Cause when I’m sinking like a stone And my ocean turns to cold In this whirling pool I go To feel my colors start to blend with the shore Where yellows turn to gold Yellows turn to gold Yellows turn to gold Yellows turn to gold So take me back to when we used to run with the sun Way back when we were wild Take me back, we’ll find our island lost in the sea Way back when days were wild.

Lyrics:

We were setting fires in the dark To count the constellations in the sparks Suspicious to the world like idle thieves Drifting from our reservations, politics, and t.v. stations Oh Are we dreaming Oh We want to break away We were building castles in the sand Crawling down below to see the kingdoms we command but Is this all we have to see? Is this what we want to be? Oh Are we dreaming Oh We want to break away This is a feeling that I'm feeling We want to break away Before we fall apart

Lyrics:

Found a spell Left your feet to float around the world To see the things you need to see Now you’re gone Left me staring at the clouds from the ground Are you ever coming down? Off you go On your own Somewhere no one knows You could stay But you wont These places that you go All the lights below Are nothing but an orange glow These places that you go And all the lights you see, Are never gonna take you home These places that you go I feel you near All around I hear you now, in all your sound Now finally you’re found. And we are here But you are always ever there, everywhere And are you ever coming down? Off you go On your own These places that you go All the lights below Are nothing but an orange glow These places that you go And all the lights you see, Are never gonna take you home These places that you go Now you’re rowing out And all around With no shore to rest your bones But I won’t sleep until you’re home From these places that you go All the lights below Are nothing but an orange glow These places that you go And all the lights you see Are never gonna take you home These places that you go And all the sounds you hear Are coming in the lowest tones These places that you go And everything you see is never gonna make you whole These places that you go.

Open up those sleepy eyes daydreamer Go outside see the skies daydreamer Keep your shoes on the ground daydreamer Then I find the simple sounds Lost in my head again Step to what you like If pressure builds against my will, will the bubble burst Change your mind your busy mind or you'll get worse Keep your shoes on the ground daydreamer I wont fight the feel I've found Lost in my head again Step to what you like

My clarity, it comes to The rain that falls, it loves you It turns the ground to glass ponds Reflecting on my lost thoughts I see the girl from far away Oh so far away Foreign lights they hold her To fireflies the rains turn Bursting in and fading Hits me like a flashbulb memory And shes the girl from far away Oh so far way I want to be where the sun sets loud I want to be with you lost in a crowd Lost in the sound Kyoto We find ourselves With time our wealth So spend your days With ones you love Before we're gone I want to be where the sun sets loud I want to be with you lost in a crowd Lost in the sound
