about

"The Bleak" is more of an alternate reality rather than a U-turn on style for the UK's riff worshipping Trippy Wicked & the Cosmic Children of the Knight. Following their debut album, "Movin On", comes four acoustic songs covering themes of emptiness, unrest and loneliness.

The EP was recorded in a home studio by the band over the early summer of 2010, and is a re-working of a single 20 minute atmospheric sludge piece of music that has yet to see the light of day.

Over the top Sabbath worshipping has been replaced with soft vocal passages, subtle chords and the occasional melancholic horn blast. Frontman Pete Holland has put down his usual sweat coated guitar for a ukulele and drummer Chris West is on guitar duties this time round.

This EP is limited to 100 copies, and comes in a recycled sleeve complete with lyric insert, with artwork by Chris West, or can be downloaded from www.trippywicked.com for whatever price you want. It is also available from iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and the usual digital outlets

Track Name: Nothing
Four tears I shed for you
In here my world’s always blue
How can I unwind,
and make ever changes new?
Such media proclaim nothing
Now and always
I can’t see nothing
It is over used
Track Name: Restless
Pass it on
Pass it on
Bring your thoughts to the table
Pass it on
Pass it on
With your waistline getting large

Without any ease in a flash of light
Dreams of pulling teeth and a loss of sight
How long can anyone belong to anyone?

Without any ease in a flash of light
Dreams of pulling teeth and a loss of sight
How long can anyone belong to anyone?
Track Name: Separate Paths
And into another chapter
So I’ve turned another page
I come home and find you fast asleep
Keep easy when you go around the corner

I don’t know what you said, I don’t know what you mean
I don’t know what you said, I don’t know what you mean

I guess we’re on our separate paths, yet we keep it together

And into another chapter
I’ve turned to another page of my years
I find you fast asleep again
Keep easy around the corner
