    Thomas Truax is a unique performer, and already justly appreciated as a treasure live. Sonic Dreamer may just have the wit, invention and accessibility to be the album that garners him that same recognition as a recording artist." -Drowned In Sound

lyrics

I had an itch in Wichita
Turned to a pain in Spain
Thought I had it cured in Aberdeen
But now it's comin' round again

With your chrysanthemum eyes
And your nuclear glow

You just forget what you were taught
You just let it show, just let it show...

I've got a beehive heart oo-oo-oo0-oo-oo-ooo

This daily grindin' does my mind in but I've
Gotta pay those bills
Get up, strap that cross to my back and
Play the boss man's mule

Can't wait to see you Sunday
With your stigma and your style
I get so charged around you
My shoes come untied while I'm standin' still
I've got a beehive heart oo-oo-oo0-oo-oo-ooo

You're the circling black cat
And I'm the birthday goldfish that
Didn't quite get all those candles out
But honey I'm still making this wish

That all your planets line up in a row
And that your parents learn to let you go
And when you're lyin' in your bed 'cause you're feelin' low
I hope the silver moon shines through your window
I've got a beehive heart oo-oo-oo0-oo-oo-ooo

about

Thomas Truax London, UK

"Thomas Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with all things lunar. He travels the world performing with his "band" of bizarre self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made with bike wheels and a souped-up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as his venerable guitar 'Hank'.
