about

Sounds of System Breakdown London, UK

Sounds of System Breakdown is a live electronic music project led by London-based Dubliner Rob Costello. It began as a response to passive, head-in-laptop elec- tronica - an attempt to bring live instruments to bear on the flow and structure of dance music.

Now it exists as a kinetic, instrument-swapping three-piece - with longtime collaborators Ed Costello and Richy Kelly.

Track Name: Jumps
With my knees pressed up against
The seat in front I see it all
Cursing my height as I'm
Passing by the ghost estates
And water towers standing tall
And in my mind I feel I must jump over
Farmhouses and walls
And I know that I must continue
Where better men have stalled

I know I'll never get to sleep
But I still try to close my eyes
Try a different tactic
Write a text message to you
But I cant get the phrasing right
I get distracted by the conversations
Happening all around
Someone providing to much information
I should really write this down

With my reading light switched off
I follow planes across the sky
Try to guess where they're going
And sometimes jealous thoughts will cross
My tired mind just for a while
And I remember then that my own journey
Is mysterious to them
Hell, it is often a mystery to me
No beginning and no end

And I must jump over
Farmhouses and walls
And I know that I must continue
Where better men have stalled
