Collectors are steeped in the best sounds of UK rock.

Biography

Collectors return with their new EP "Travelogue", the first since the debut EP "Reverberation" in 2004. If "Reverberation" marked a beginning, then "Travelogue" marks a band confidently hitting its stride.

Recorded and mixed at Million Yen Studios in Chicago, "Travelogue" finds the band showcasing broad sonic textures, ear-pleasing psychedelic tinged pop sensibilities, tight hooks and strong arrangements that evoke the best sounds of UK rock over the years.

Lyrically the release encompasses bitterweet themes of loss - the loss of time, opportunities and people that are most important in one's life. But listen closer and one will hear a sense of hope and redemption that permeates "Travelogue" like a perfect day.

Lyrics

Suitcase

Written By: Michael Mazza

The translation has started
And this time it’s gonna be clear
Subjective reflections
Are closer than they appear
She never imagined her world
Spinning underneath the light
Of a distant moon
But it was hard to tell

So she packed up a suitcase
And headed for L.A.
It became quite apparent
There was little left to say
Relegated to a time when
Balance had a means to an end
Oh but who could tell

Where did you draw the line
Only to decide
It’s not the same
All those things you had you thought you wouldn’t mind
Where did you draw that line

Find a way

Tomorrow’s here
After the rain
And we never had time to explain
You had to go
To a different place
Maybe I’ll see you someday
I don’t know if I can run to now
The places where you’ve been found
Unexpected situations
Have a way of working out

And then the sun begins to light
These types of days where everything collides
Help me, help me to find a way
Because I don’t know what to do
Without you
It’s understandable that you couldn’t stay
But I don’t what I’m gonna do
Without you

A crowded street
Amidst my haste
I swear that I saw your face
Seconds elapsed
And you weren’t there
And the impact brought to bear
Now I swear it sure seemed real to me
I’ll guess I’ll never know
Amazing how your infinite wisdom
Became so apropos

And then the sun begins to light
These types of days where everything collides
Help me, help me to find a way
Because I don’t know what to do
Without you
It’s understandable that you couldn’t stay
But I don’t what I’m gonna do
Without you

And then the sun begins to light
These types of days where everything collides
