about

Two years after the release of their self-titled debut that created a great sensation, The Noise Figures duo is back dynamically with “Aphelion”.
After two European tours, hundreds of concerts in all major Greek cities and having shared the stage with some of the most important bands (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Growlers, Japandroids, No Age, Dead Meadow, Sonic Jesus, Sylvain Sylvain), George Nikas (drums, vocals) and Stamos Bamparis (guitar, vocals) elevate the musical tones and offer us some of the best songs of the year. Recorded in five days, on a reel-to-reel tape machine, with vintage gear and tuned to A=432 Hz, produced and sound engineered by Alex Bolbasis in Artracks Studios, ”Aphelion” answers the question of what happens when you combine ideally the raw power of Death From Above 1979, the spirit of Black Sabbath and the fuzz of Black Angels. Spunky vocals, massive guitar riffs and sticky tunes in harmony with a special engraving, created by Bob Studio for the cover artwork, are making ”Aphelion” an album that is here to stay.
“Aphelion” is out on red vinyl, cd and digital album from Inner Ear.

Track Name: Shoot The Moon
Running through the walls find an open space
Let me walk along past the morning daze
If the feeling comes we can build a fire
Make the water boil make it run at last
Out of you

Time will take us back when you held me down
With your silver knife harmless like a child
When the night has come we can build a fire
Put our hands and feet in the mirror lake
Shoot the moon

We found an open road to drag our bones away
Fell upon a man frightened of our gloom
And the spirits all holding on our hands
In a parking lot we were striving to
Shoot the moon
Track Name: In The Boneyard
Saw a blood line can I use your phone
I need someone to call
I can rise and fall only in your mind
I’m your fictional ghost
Come play the game take me to the coast
We could waste a day
Show me the ocean through your big red eyes
I wanna see you dive

n the boneyard

Through the high tide all the children run
Do we need to go?
I’ve seen the ocean through your big red eyes
Now let me dive

In the boneyard
Track Name: Run
She never wore any colors
Her eyes were a nuclear sun
She floats in the air by the nighttime
I’ve seen her before
She needed to go

She gotta run

Strolling among every stranger
Talking inside every crowd
She hits like a stone through my window
I’ve seen her before
She needed to go

She gotta run

How many times will it take you
To give me your bicycle charm
Come on! Come on!
I’ve seen you before
You needed to go

You gotta run
Track Name: Don't Throw Your Hand
I wanna see you melt like the bleeding sun
My demon girl don’t click your tongue
I gotta keep on running don’t fall apart
My demon girl my only one

Don’t throw your hand
Don’t throw your hand

I wanna see you melt like the bleeding sun
My demon girl don’t click your tongue
I gotta keep on running don’t fall apart
My demon girl my only one

Don’t throw your hand
Don’t throw your hand
Track Name: Aphelion
She won’t look at the phases of the moon
But it’s all right
Cause I can tell by the earthshine
And I won’t rest, so let it rise

We can hide behind the sun rays
Close your eyes, you’re a satellite
We’re bound to hound
To hound the spring tide
Aphelion
Track Name: Holy One
I’ve been the shade in every step you take with no direction
I’ve seen the light in your dark
Blood is flowing through the walls and I pay no attention
It’s time to shine in your heart

You’re my holy one

I’ve the curse in every story but you chase my devils
I’ve seen the light in your dark
Got away with everyone we can drink and revel
We can dive into the waters

You’re my holy one
Track Name: Feathers
She found her way in the dark
There is no brighter road to heaven
Held the key to my heart
Said we could fly without our feathers

We played with daggers and knives
It was so heavy to remember
Put the weight on my hands
And let me dive without my feathers
Track Name: Blood
You got it in your blood
Track Name: No Use
She’s overdressed always sure
That everything she touches turns to gold
A Saturn kid holy grief
Turns the sunlight on and over me

I got no use

In your dress a garden goat
Take me back to the place I was born
A Saturn kid on methalyn
Grabs my hand and breaks down on me

I got no use

In your dress overbored
Take me back to the place I was born
A Saturn kid on methalyn
Turns the sunlight on and over me

I got no use
Track Name: Celebration Time
Won’t you come inside
Through my wooden mind
I would give you a hand
It could take us a while
Everybody’s got a story to tell
Everybody’s got a big big smile
But don’t break the glass
You will see the lies

It’s celebration time

Won’t you come inside
In my sleeping time
I would give you a pillow
We could rest for a while
Everybody’s got a picture to share
Everybody’s got a big big smile
But don’t look inside
You will see the lies

It’s celebration time
