about

this is a six track debut EP from one man band of the 21 century Jerry Afraid. "These hearts will break" is 6 songs of glitchy avant garde electronic weirdness. The tracks blend influences from the Warp back catalogue and ‘Amnesiac’ period Radiohead gaffer taped together by Jerrys distant and discordant 'other room in another world' vocals

Self recorded and produced the EP is Jerrys dark solitary vision of 21st century Britain....and its a desolate place. The music is as far from the open mic scene which spawed it as a Tory MPs earnings are from the minimum wage.

Its innovative but not pretentious its probably one of the most singular works of music you will hear this year.

Track Name: Jerry Afraid - demons rush in
Every time i falter i come crashing to the floor.
Consumed by self loathing a self vitriolic hate.
I'm not an evil man just missing love.
I let my own paranoia tear my life apart.

And the demons rush in.
And the demons rush in.

Every time i brake these bonds a part of my bakes of.
I've broken so many bonds i don't much much I've left.
I crumble as i brake on down crumble as I brake.
I've broken so many times I don't know what I am anymore.

And the demons rush in.
And the demons rush in.
And the demons rush in.
Track Name: Jerry Afraid - cash
This the way this is way down.
You can't afford to pay for the bill we pay.
That is alright i will pay your share.
Till there's nothing left but dust and bones.

There no one to catch me when I fall.

Kill me now kill me with liberal thinking.
Argue and debate the payments your asked for.
Meanwhile I'm drowning I'm drowning all in all this debt.
while you debate I'm drowning in quagmires and money-pits.
When the bailiffs come don't answer don,t answer.
We'll watch all the bills climb up the walls never pay never pay
I'll watch it all crumble and fall there no one to catch me when i fall.
Track Name: Jerry Afraid - battle cries for lost souls
Lay it down.
This town will rot.
These young wide eyes will die, and turn to hate.
Alcohol will numb the pain.
Soothing, soothing
As the new future is built around us.
No room for dreems
Profit, greed.
Kindness is a handicap in this world.
This is world you created, you created.
Your apathy allowed it
Feed it.

Time to stand and fight.
To get back our own future.
This is our land this is our lifetime.
Backs against the wall.
Backs against the wall.
Greed has had it's time and lost.

How mush more, lives are, failed by, these laws.
How fickle we are.
Back to basics.
Track Name: Jerry Afraid - there you go
We all live our lives at these velocities.
Like bears in a cage going round the bend.
I'd like to help you out coz I can't help myself.
I'd just fall apart if I was selfish.

When your there i can move mountains.
When you see I'm a superhero.
There you are.
There you are.
There you are.
You so real.
There you are.
There you are.
There you are.

Things fall into place, things fall apart.
This isn't home, just a place to play.
Someone help me out coz I can't help myself.
on the surface I'm calm but inside I'm screaming.

When your there i can move mountains.
When you see I'm a superhero.
There you are.
There you are.
There you are.
You so real.
There you are.
There you are.
There you are.

What you see in your own reflection is wrong.
Broken people will bring you down as they fall.
Do not them do not them bring you down.
Your so much your so much more.

So when your, your lost and lonely.
Remember It's not you.
These times won't last forever.
I never want to bring you down.
Track Name: Jerry Afraid - hearts and hands
Eyes down, eyes down.
Work hard put in the hours.
Meanwhile, meanwhile their thieving your inheritance from you.
Or did they.
This politics game is far confusing.
Best leave it to us.
Work hard and you might just get a tiny fraction of what you have earned.

You can do what you want, please don't question the hand.
Or we can and will break heart.
You can do what you want, please don't question the hand.
Or we can and will break heart apart.

Eyes down, eyes down.
Don't notice the crack and the flaws.
Or the ones standing up for your rights and liberties.
when those are being taken away, one by one
We live in a democracy no need to question anything.

You can do what you want, please don't question the hand.
Or we can and will break heart.
You can do what you want, please don't question the hand.
Or we can and will break heart apart.
Track Name: Jerry Afraid - blink and you miss it
Getting up in the morning, what a morning thank you.
Get myself out of bed, and make some coffee.

And if i close my eyes would the world disappear.
And if i fall asleep would it all be over.

Getting in the evening, what a night, working 5 to nowhere.
For a job that doesn't care, if I'm going nowhere.

And if i close my eyes would the world disappear.
And if i fall asleep would it all be over.
