about

Sweet Chap’s latest release, Down My Back, is from his forthcoming album, A Place Where the Menaced Can Mumble. A delta blues-esque melody lies at the foundation of the track, accompanied by old arcade coin-op samples, vocal instrumentation and big synth hooks. Sweet Chap's main vocal gently pushes its way to the front of the track, conjuring images of sexuality and forbidden fantasies whilst confronting demons of shame and expectation along the way.

The song depicts the inner persecution that we inflict on ourselves throughout our lives, and the struggle to try and justify our thoughts and beliefs against the voice of judgment, acceptance and convention.

lyrics

Pour down the candle wax gently down my back my baby
Softly, softly does it
Hey look the little lad has spawned an ugly tash
Dressed up in ladies colours
Brings fear to every mother

Fondle the poisoned ant, crush it in your hand baby
Softly, softly does it
Watch how the Earwig's lurched to crawl in baby's pram
Bring's fear to every mother
Wrapped up in women's colours
Won't let, won't let her get to me...
...Won't let her get a me down

Pour down the candle wax gently down my back my baby
Softly, softly does it
Lip read then limit me to who and what to shag
Then dress me in ladies colours
Then go disappoint my mother

Pull on my wedding finger
Pull back my wedding singer
Pull on my wedding finger

Then dress me in pretty colours
Then go disappoint my mother

Won't let, won't let her get to me...
...Won't let her get a me down

Sweet Chap Brighton, UK

Somewhere an old CPU fan is humming,
Tired, overworked, it's synched to the strumming,
Of a four stringed acoustic
and an 808 beat,

This twisted of discos becomes now complete...

Sweet Chap is the moniker for artist and producer Mike R Comber. Under this alias Mike delivers his unique blend of emotion driven alt electronica art pop.
