BandAlternativePop

The sound is a blend of soul soothing lyrics delivered a haunting vocal on a bed of melodic guitars and spacey rhythms.

Biography

Angels are Architects formed in mid 2004 with the premise of creating music that would help a hurting heart get to sleep at night. The band always look forward to delivering their melodies and their message to anyone anywhere who wants to listen.

Guitarist Phil Whitman and drummer Andrew Mitchell met in primary school and forged a lasting friendship through a mutual love of music. Under the guise of ?The German Happy Club? they duo busked around the streets of Canberra. Their desire to get in out of the cold and play their original music led them to add Andrei Lena on bass and Amber Mitchell on vocals, and they became "The Fallen". The Fallen only ever played a handful of gigs until mid 2005 when they entered the Jim Beam National Campus band comp and, to their very great surprise, took out the ACT State final. The national final turned out to be a little more than their limited outings had prepared them for but they took a lot from the experience and started a solid gigging schedule around Canberra their home town.

2007 saw the band record their debut EP. This turned turned out to be Andrei's final outing with the band as his life was taking him in another direction. The parting was sweet and he still writes for and spends time with the band. Melanie Wundke was then recruited on bass and group changed their name to Angels are Architects. The group has since toured in South-East Asia stopping over to play a series of shows at the Mosaic Music Festival in Singapore. The band has also appeared on MTV, played live to radio and had a whole lot of fun along the way. Angels are Architects find it a constant struggle to pinpoint their genre as all members draw from completely unique tastes. The music has been described as atmospheric rock meets electronica / dance. At gigs they have been compared to artists ranging from Lamb to Muse.

Lyrics

The Cover Up

Written By: Angels Are Architects

Paint that smile on your face
And lie to everyone
Please don't lie to me
There would not be any shame
If you would just fall down and break

And the waters
Are gonna be so tall
When the waters
Crash over your soul

And you can push that pain away
But it will turn the key
On all your dreams
Cuz we don't dance for endless days
Still i know that your so afraid

And the waters
Are gonna be so tall
When the waters
Climb over your soul

The Night Bleeds

Written By: Angels Are Architects

The night bleeds into you
This crazy moon died above you
The hounds of time pursue you
Still you are unseen, unchanged, unloved.

Its so close, yet so far away
You've gone, nothings her to stay
You cry yourself to sleep
And all your dreams
Lead to heaven
Darkness falls, through the window
Starlight calls, gone forever
All these years, torn together
Your heart sings black immortal

The night bleeds into you
This crazy moon died above you
The hounds of time pursue you
Still you are unseen, unchanged, unloved.

Unloved undesired unchained
Unimpriosoned, unsung, unforgotten unheld unbeloved

Untold uninspired unknown
Undiscovered unwise unforgotten untrue unforgiven

Lives we had, true to nothing
More than this
Hope eternal sacrifice
Of an everlasting love
The one who sent you to this place
So forgotten time will tell
The story of another world
Still inside this open door
To the answer

The night bleeds into you
This crazy moon died above you
The hounds of time pursue you
Still you are unseen, unchanged, unloved.

Please Sleep

Written By: Angels Are Architects

I don't know why you keep haunting me
Just let me be
Just let me be

I know why it is you can't find peace
Those things you did
Won't let you sleep

I don't know why you keep haunting me
Just let me be
Just let me be

And i know what you cry until you bleed
But you can't see
You bleed through me
It's killing me

And all i know
Is what i lost
When you came
And took it all

Take the Ocean In

Written By: Angels Are Architects

Time will come calling
So don't go looking for trouble
Its to die for
It's coming for you

God has the answers
To all your equations
And its alright
He's given it now

Stone cold but beating
Your heart can still breath in sunshine
Open up the doors is it me your looking for?

Time will turn tables on your sweet depecption and it will tear your world apart
Don't go hide in the basement of you solicitations
Wake up and smell the rain

Dulled are your senses but can still feel hopelessness

Open up the doors is it me your looking for?

Open up the windows
Let the sunshine in here
Fade away the greyness
Take the Ocean in

Surrender

Written By: Angels Are Architects

Just fall on the floor
And surrender my love
Its all to much to hold onto
When you belong to the one

As you stare up at the stars in the sky and you wonder why you are who you are tonight
I loved you
Your mine

Theres a call
And a price to pay
And a heart that will break i know
And i know, i know all about your pain and i know all about the rain
Its cold

As you stare up at the stars in the sky and you wonder why you are who you are tonight
I loved you
Your mine

And you are who you were
meant to be
I didn't make mistakes in the dawning of eternity
I loved you for all time

I'm the one who covered you
Deep inside the secret place
I'm the one who new your way
Long before you lived a day
Im the one who called your name
Im the one who feels your pain
As my own

The Angel Song

Written By: Phillip Whitman

Once I could see a beautiful day
But I closed my eyes and the sun flew away
Once I thought, I thought that I'd be okay
But the night has blinded me
It's dark now and I can't see

But if I call on your name
Will you come on the wings of an angel?
And if I hold out my hand
Will you come and take me right out of this
Out of this hopeless mess

Once I could dream on a star in the night
Once I could laugh, once I could cry
But the twinkle has faded out from my eye
So come be close to me tonight
Come and be my guiding light

And I will call on your name
You will come on the wings of an angel
I will hold out my hand
You will come and take me right out of this
Out of this hopeless mess

Fly down and pull me out
And take me to our hiding place
Fly down and pull me out
Can we soar in an open space

Care for me
Comfort me
In the shadow of your wings
Care for me
Comfort me
In the shadow of your wings
