Long Ago 04:21
Long ago Hurry there is no time, you gotta run and hide your clothes are in a bag, no money is in your pocket They ‘re calling you outside, you’re waiting for the ride all hopes are left behind, tears running down your face Why do you think it’s over now Why do you think it’s over now The car is off the road, you think you hear a moan the night is misty black, it’s freezin’ cold you’re shakin’ the gunmen are ahead, right now you’re filled with dread you have to find a way, a reason to escape Why do you think it’s over now Why do you think it’s over now Long ago, you wanted long ago you needed long ago you had it long ago you dreamed it Days ago, you wished for something better you could have Now you know, it’s really hard to get to where you want but it’s so long ago They seem so far away, you are alive today you gotta move along, the dawn rises upon you go fast is what you need, accelerate your speed fly high up to the sky, the battle isn’t over Why do you think it’s over now Long ago, you wanted long ago you needed long ago you had it long ago you dreamed it days ago, you wished for something better you could have now you know, it’s really hard to get to where you want but it’s so long ago long ago - run and hide there is no time long ago - you are waiting for the ride long ago - all your hopes are left behind long ago - feel the dread is what you are long ago - find a way tonight long ago - long ago long ago - long ago - long ago - long ago Long ago, you wanted long ago you needed long ago you had it long ago you dreamed it They seem so far away, you are alive today you gotta move along, the dawn rises upon you go fast is what you need, accelerate your speed fly high up to the sky, I said allright.

Don’t let me down I wanna make you mine, I wanna feel your deepest love When we realize, that our paths in life were lost Melded and combined, as we found each other Merging and attracted to, till we feel each other’s soul “Don’t let me down “Don’t let me down”, I said to… You … no more my heart ... can’t take it Our love is there we can’t fake it I can’t escape it with your heartbeat next to mine… I wanna see it clear, your voice echoes in my soul but you can’t be near, we’re a distant it’s a loss let the sorrow fly away and believe it’s over let the sorrow fly away cause it’s really over now “Don’t let me down” “Don’t let me down”, I said to… You … no more my heart ... can’t take it Our love is there we can’t fake it I can’t escape it with your heartbeat next to mine… I wanna make you mine... if you realize... when the lust is over, when the lust is over now you can take it over, you can turn it into love “Don’t let me down” “Don’t let me down” “Don’t let me down” “Don’t let me down” I said to you … no more my heart ... can’t take it Our love is there we can’t fake it I can’t escape it with your heartbeat next to mine… You know my heart can’t take it Our love is there we can’t fake it I can’t escape it with your heartbeat next to mine.

Control my love I won’t feel; my thoughts are just a way to believe and everybody assumes it’s alright you wanna get your lovin’ , it’s just a thing that’s over now I won’t see; your games are just a way to come clear and everybody feels it’s alright but I won’t take for granted lies that should have come undone Walkin’ around in your flashy pants makin’ all the girls just fall for you you told me that I was the only one you loved and never leave me far behind You seemed so distant that I couldn’t feel your love was cold and nowhere to be seen I saw you walking out I couldn’t reach you you were miles and miles away from me I’m gonna make it you were just a shadow I followed through I’m gonna take it as a chance to start all over new Why did you think I’m gonna stand beside you when you clearly only love yourself you have to understand that all around you is a blind that covers everything I’m gonna make it you were just a shadow I followed through I’m gonna take it as a chance to start all over new you wanna change me into something that I’ll never be the grief is over now I’m heading my way to be free I don’t mind... it’s alright....it’s too late.....everything we had is over I won’t feel; my thoughts are just a way to believe and everybody assumes it’s alright you wanna get your lovin’ , it’s just a thing that’s over now I’m gonna make it you were just a shadow I followed through I’m gonna take it as a chance to start all over new you wanna change me into something that I’ll never be the grief is over now I’m heading my way to be so you know you can’t control my love I don’t mind... it’s alright....it’s too late.....everything we had is over now I won’t feel; my thoughts are just a way to believe and everybody assumes it’s alright you wanna get your lovin’ , it’s just a thing that’s over now I won’t see; your games are just a way to come clear and everybody feels it’s alright but I won’t take for granted lies that should have come -now- lies that should have come undone for long.

Stay 03:56
Stay I wanna know, if we can make it right If all the promises you made were truth or lies it’s gonna set you free, you’re gonna realize flaws that were buried in the past and put aside Stay where you are, never knew before a true romance is what you make not what you thought I’m gonna stay, just wanna let you know another day, another night can go no more I wanna start again, cause we are falling over All wrongs committed in our lives could make us stronger Stay where you are, never knew before a true romance is what you make not what you thought Do what you can, cause It’s coming over Just take a step ahead and dare, we’re getting closer Open your eyes and look around, you’ll see a sign It’s just a ray of light, it’s called being alive a magic sound that surrounds you yes we stay connected baby We can make it, let us break the chain tonight Stay where you are, never knew before a true romance is what you make not what you thought Do what you can, ‘cause It’s coming over Just take a step ahead and dare, we’re getting closer

about

Maximum High release their self-titled EP this month on their own label, Moving Coil Records. Recorded on vintage analog equipment at the band’s studio, with a DIY approach and an “anything goes” attitude, the EP features four songs – Long Ago, Don’t Let Me Down, Control My Love and Stay – that showcase their gritty yet melodic style.
The Athens-based quartet incorporates elements of punk, soul and the blues with cathcy vocal melodies, infectious riffs and relentless grooves, delivering a fresh rock sound with an old-school vibe.
Irene Dimopoulou’s vocals alternate between a sultry lilt and a soulful snarl, demonstrating her wide emotional range, while the rest of the band plays with passion, confidence and a keen sense of dynamics.
Housed in a 12” sleeve with exclusive artwork by French cartoonist Alteau, who has designed covers for bands like Rancid, and The Undertakers, the EP will be available at the band’s shows, online (through Bandcamp, CD Baby, iTunes, Spotify, and the band’s website) and via select record stores.
“This is a band that blew my expectations out of the water, working together like a well oiled machine to produce a perfect example of what rock is all about.” – James Fenney, Belwood Music
“A really eclectic mix of sounds that blend together well to produce an original and impressive collection of tracks.” – Maria Savva, Real Rock ‘n’ Roll
“Their 2016 self-titled EP is bold, effective and seriously impressive…” – Maro Angelopoulou, Europavox
