ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Welcome to the atmospheric dreamland!

The long awaited 2nd album. This CD reflects on CURFEWs 'Inside' = the rather introvert side of their minds turned out some chilllaxing music. A collection of 10 songs with the single 'Take My Hand'.
Musicians craftsmanship on this CD comes from the Vocalists Sue Ballingall, Maria O'Connell, April Anderson and WAXY and the instrumentalists Roger Francomb (Sax and Guitars), Ernest Storga (Bass) and April Anderson (Flute). Everything skillfully put together and produced by Sönke Prigge.

More info on the CURFEW website and on their MySpace site (see links on the left).

Truly Inside
CURFEW = INSIDE

Before hearing the first tone of this CD you will know the theme: The CD cover explains it all: A head in the clouds and inside the head in foetus position; a person!
There are no feet on the ground and the head in the cloud symbolises a far removed being from reality and the world. The world happens outside ; there on the INSIDE are only thoughts and the clouds to consider and where they will be blown to by the wind. Not a proactive state of mind and a situation where thoughts take over and where a new, personal reality is invented, which might be REAL(ity) or not... (what is reality?)

... moving on the the first few notes and words ("Crazy World"): Some kind of church bells in the distance with a 'pad' sound that symbolises the clouds and the wind and there we have it: "watching the world from above..." this surely is the perspective of the person INSIDE the head in the clouds .
The 10 songs describe quite well how live in the INSIDE must be like and the beautiful soundscapes almost visualise these feelings. Mostly they tell about shyness and retreat, of things one might see under the influence of mind enhancing drugs or of dreams and of states of mind, which is are bit different from what society would consider normal. The songs seldom speak of positivity (TAKE MY HAND is the exception). Many songs describe a situation that is quite beautiful, but they are dreams or 'could-be' situations. Hemingways THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA' fits in quite well and finally after so many nice thoughts and how things could be we're off to bed with an old friend (DEAR SLEEP) and back to where we started: in a dreamlike state high in the clouds...

The lyrics are on the CURFEW website and helped me to understand this CD.
I followed the artists' recommendation and listened to this CD on headphones lying in my bed. It works !!!

Relaxing, Introspective Mix of Electronic, Ambient, and World Music
“Inside” is an ambient, chill-out electronic album from the UK band Curfew. Their world sound makes them a musical cross between The Gotan Project, Massive Attack, and The Prodigy. One could say the electronic sounds lean more towards The Prodigy and the ambient more toward Massive Attack. Curfew is comprised of four vocalists, three female and one male, creating an beautiful vocal sound overall. “Inside” is well-produced and allows maximum listening pleasure by creating a relaxing, mood-setting sound. When pronounced, the lyrics are often fashioned as love songs and display how the songwriter feels “Inside.” On “Together We Can (Let Go),” a female vocalist beautifully sings, “If you’re too afraid to show your feelings/Too afraid to speak your mind/Don’t expect love.” Similarly, the title track sings about being helplessly in love: “Why are you so fascinating/I can’t help but give you much too much attention/Much too much of everything.” “Dear Sleep” closes things out with a departure from female vocals and love songs into an eerie male electronic voice similar to Radiohead’s “Fitter Happier.” “Inside” is a relaxing, introspective album for anyone looking for a nice mixture of electronic, ambient, and world music.
