Biography

Something borrowed, something blue.

MY CERULEAN HEART make beautiful, blissful beats in Brisbane. They mix the old with new to make shimmery electro and beautiful avante pop electronica. Cutting edge synths hit found and traditional sounds. Their electronica is more lyrically driven than most dance electronica acts, allowing them to create a sense of intimate connection with the audience while still putting on an amazing live show. Their experimental nature ensures their sound is engaging and explores new avenues with every release. With beats, textures, and lush synth sounds, they create music and lyrics that are truthful and honest. Their music resonates with the secret romantic places in people's hearts. Their beautiful hopeful lyrics are suffused with sparkling harmonies.

Heidi and Anthony produce beats, synths and melodies. Fflur writes gorgeous vocals, harmonies and found percussion sounds. Josh brings his classical training on piano to create a vibrant sound. Heidi’s whimsical, hope suffused lyrics form the core of the band’s content but song writing duties are shared.

Think Goldfrapp glamour meets Bat For Lashes mystique with Miss Kittin attitude. As well as playing regularly in Brisbane, they have toured Sydney, Melbourne, New York, Paris and outback Queensland. They were nominated for a Q Song award (2008, Electronic New Music as Dizzygotheca) and ranked in the Top 20 in 4ZzZ's Hot 100.

Airplay includes Radio National, ABC Classic FM, J TV, and Australian and international community radio. They have had tracks on Australian and International compilations (Fiend Magazine, ElectroStatik (USA), Ladyfest Brisbane). Heidi and Anthony have leant their production skills to remixes (Ghostboy) and movie sound tracks.

You are invited to come adventuring through fresh new musical territories. Catch them at the Brisbane Powerhouse Live Spark on June 5.

MY CERULEAN HEART is Heidi Millington, Anthony Smith, Fflur Collier and Josh Hill Denaro. My Cerulean Heart was renamed from Dizzygotheca in 2010, signalling their stronger focus on shimmery pop and new band members.

Lyrics

Little Beat

Written By: Heidi Millington

you're landing on your feet again
you're spinning round

come to
the edge of this
pick up the
pieces
where you lost it

don't fall into something you
can't get out of

oh honey i'm
a mess

you're landing on your feet again
you're spinning round
you're so sweet you'll get through this
you've been trying, you'll get through this

don't fall into something you
can't get out of

oh honey i'm
a mess

313

Written By: Heidi Millington

If I find myself 100 years from now, what in the mirror would I see?
If I find myself 100 years from now, would you still be here with me?

I find I lose my mind. I find I lose my mind

313
If I find myself 100 years from now, what in the mirror would I see?
If
I find myself 100 years from now, would you still be here with me?

I find I
lose my mind. I find I lose my mind

Sometimes I find I can't get through
I try sometimes but I don't know what to do

If I find myself 100
years from now, would you still be here with me?
If I find myself 100 years
from now, would we still be happy?

I find I lose my mind. I find I lose my
mind

Sometimes I find I can't get through

I try sometimes but I don't
know what to do
Sometimes I find I can't get through
I try sometimes but I
don't know what to do

Between Horses and Trees

Written By: Heidi Millington and Anthony Smith

I stare out into space
It floods through me
I stare out to the point where
you disappear
I wish things would calm down so I could touch them
In this normal life I'm exploding

For a
moment I felt you standing there
You ask me why I am how I am
Are you really
how you are?
I am how I feel

i i i

I am ready to connect
I am lost
between horses and trees
I connect to a greater thing
I am somewhere else

I am here to rescue you

Written By: Heidi Millington and Anthony Smith

You could take this to be the truth
But I don't know if you can
You're the
other

You come close now but don't believe it
I write on your skin,
whisper your name
You say it's just a game

We go out now
We're in love
I think

This is a moment in your life
Close your eyes
All your friends
are here with you
Do my words mean this to you ?

You come close now but
don't believe it
I write on your skin, whisper your name
You say it's just a game

We go out now
We're in love I think

Contact

Written By: Heidi Millington

Contact

Verse:
How do you see love?
I see your dorm in winter
Black sky, white snow
I sneak in to be with you

You take out your contact lenses
I'm so in love with your flaws I'm done for
You take out your contact lenses
I'm so in love with your flaws I'm done for

Chorus:
Buses go all different ways after this stop
But eventually I get on the plane, I have to go
Buses go all different ways after this stop
But eventually I get on the plane, I have to go

Verse:
Organic chocolate, mix CDs, memories, the internet
Plane flights, forgetfulness
Love you always and forever
Reboot...reboot Canada

Chorus:
Buses go all different ways after this stop
But eventually I get on the plane, I have to go
Buses go all different ways after this stop
But eventually I get on the plane, I have to go

Love you always and forever
