Star Chamber

BandRockEDM

We take a non-conformist approach meaning we have a sound that is refreshingly different to other bands. We mix Classic guitar rock with electronic gadgetry and catchy anthemic choruses, you could describe us electronic indie rock.

Biography

Star Chamber began the Summer of 2008 in true style by headlining the BBC introducing stage at Sellindge Festival. Having just had their latest tracks mixed by the highly prestigious New York producer Mark Plati (David Bowie, Prince, The Cure) they appeared at a number of events over the following months including the Harlequin Theatre in Surrey with Ghost Of A Thousand on 7th June, Sellindge Festival headlined by Idlewild also on 7th June, The University of Cambridge Summer Ball with I Am Kloot and Palladium on 18th June before flying out to the south of France the next day to play the Fete de la Musique in Nice. On return from Nice they headlined the Underworld in Camden and were chosen to play Zoo Thousand and Eight Music Festival on 5th and 6th of July along with major movers and shakers Mark Ronson, The Cribs, Ash and The Hives to name a few.

There are exciting things on the horizen for the Gravesend band who have already headlined sell out shows at The Fly and The Water Rats this year and played at the Radio 1 Big Weekend Fringe Festival and had their single played on BBC 6 Music.

Star Chamber are working on something big right now so be ready. The Resistance is coming...

Lyrics

You Kill Me So

Written By: Allan Bradbury

I’ve been trying not to worry but you know I get all in a tangle every time I think about it
I’ve been trying but I’m sorry I just couldn’t let go of the candle and now I think I’m losing my grip
It’s so bad I don’t think I can ever get over the trauma, the damage that you did to my pride
I’m just mad ‘case it stinks that I always get pushed in the corner, somewhere at the back of your mind

I love you though you kill me so
The simple truth I can’t take
I live in hope and yet I know
You’ll only bring me heartache

Would it help if I told you my feelings, all cards on the table or would I just be making things worse?
Would you tell me to go is there really no way you’d be able to utter just a few kind words?
It’s not much to ask for after what you’ve put me through
I could be a lot more trying if you want me to

I love you though you kill me so
The simple truth I can’t take
I live in hope and yet I k now you’ll only bring me heartache
I’ve been trying not to worry but you know I get all in a tangle every time I think about it
I’ve been trying but I’m sorry I just couldn’t let go of the candle and now I think I’m losing my grip
It’s so bad I don’t think I can ever get over the trauma, the damage that you did to my pride
But it’s fine, but it’s fine I’ll just curl up and die in the corner somewhere in the back of your mind.

Something That She Said

Written By: Allan Bradbury

There's something in the words she says
there's something in the words she says
she's talking out of turn again
she drags me through the dirt again
I feel the weight of her disdain
I'll always be the first to break
and nothing I can do can stop her getting through

ooh it's something that she said it's something that she said this morning

There's something in the words she said
there's something in the words she says
she brings me down to earth again
she puts me through the worst again
I wanted to be hers again
but nothing ever works that way
in spite of what I fees I know it isn't real

ooh it's something that she said it's something that she said this morning

I fear I've had my time
speak in to my eyes and say your love has died

I wanted to be hurt again
but nothing ever works that way
in spite of how I feel
I know it isn't real

ooh it's something that she said it's something that she said this morning
ooh it's something that she said it's something that will always haunt me.

Get Down

Written By: Allan Bradbury

Emily, you embarrass me with the way that you carry on
Can’t you try to be civilized then just maybe we’d get along
But I know you won’t ever be wrong with that moral high horse that you’re on

Get Down Get Down Get Down

Drop the act cause in actual fact you don’t have anything to say
Highly strung with a silver-tongue
Yes it’s the current state of play
But you talk about trivial things
And your babble’s just making me cringe

Get Down Get down Get down

Emily you embarrass me when you try to use clever words
I can stand you for only so long
My love for you has finally gone

Get Down Get Down Get down
La la la la la la......
Emily you embarrass me
