Atomic 03:42
Two hearts beat as one School's out, and summer's just begun What a feeling I get I think our futures are set I'll meet you outside The Spar When I have finished my tea I'd better watch no ones following me Don't tell your mum and I won't tell my dad That when we are together it all goes atomic Just take my hand cos they won't understand that When we are together, our world turns atomic Two hearts beat as one The story of our lives has just begun They'll never keep us apart We made this vow from the start I'll meet you down by the subway with my heart on my sleeve I'll be sure nobody's following me Don't tell your mum and I won't tell my dad That when we are together it all goes atomic Just take my hand cos they won't understand that When we are together, our world turns atomic Stood on the steps, of the town hall this morning Watching the buses go by And I wish I could be, like the people around me With nothing to fear or hide Two hearts beat as one The hurtful things they said can't be undone There's nothing left for us here They made it perfectly clear I'll meet you down by the station where the coaches all leave I'll make sure, nobody's following me Don't tell your mum and I won't tell my dad That when we are together it all goes atomic Just take my hand cos they won't understand that When we are together, our world turns atomic

A Giant Kiss 02:33
I kissed my baby by the apple tree It was as natural and easy as ABC He carved my name at the perfect height And the best thing about it He spelt it right He said “come on baby, we were meant to be” Like bread and butter Strawberries and cream He took my hand and he held it tight I put my sunglasses on cos it was too bright Oh oh oh oh I kissed my baby by the apple tree It was as natural and easy as ABC When the blossom falls And the cuckoo calls There'll be sherbet fountains and waterfalls He took my hand and he held it tight We walked downtown on a Monday night He told me “baby, there's a place to be” That's right beside him on a pink settee Oh oh oh oh I can't let go of your candy love Come and give it all to me I can't let go of your candy love Come and give it all to me Cos any day or night you’re the perfect sight And I love love love you Oh oh oh oh He said “come on baby, we were meant to be” Like bread and butter Strawberries and cream He took my hand and he held it tight I put my sunglasses on cos it was too bright Oh oh oh oh Give me a kiss, a giant kiss Oh oh oh oh Give me a kiss, a giant kiss

She moves her head to the 4/4 beat But Judy don't dance She claps her hands and she stamps her feet But Judy don't dance Cos Judy Judy don't dance Cos Judy Judy don't dance She'll swing her hips and her fingertips But Judy don't dance She'll stand all night in a pure white light But Judy don't dance Cos Judy Judy don't dance Cos Judy Judy don't dance You'll never get her dancing right on the beat wo oh oh You'll never get her dancing right on the beat wo oh oh Cos Judy Judy don't dance Cos Judy Judy don't dance You'll never get her dancing right on the beat!

about

Only available in digital format!!

To talk about HELEN LOVE these days is to talk about inexhaustible energy, about infinite youth, about the most iconoclastic cheekiness we can imagine. After five albums (three compilations and two official albums) and close to twenty singles, we get “Atomic”, the advance single from what is going to be their upcoming album on Elefant Records, “Day-Glo Dreams”. The album will be marked by the move toward eighties-styled synth-pop, accentuating the group’s most techno-pop facet, though without leaving behind that explosive punk spirit that bursts into powerful little pills.

The title-track of this digital single, “Atomic”, is proof of what we were saying before: it has an unforgettable chorus, marked by bubbling synthesizer lines in a story of teenage love that will make fans of THE HUMAN LEAGUE and SILICON TEENS swoon. The remaining two songs on the digital single are both previously unreleased tracks. The first song, “A Giant Kiss”, goes in exactly the opposite direction, following along the lines of the girl-groups from the sixties, somewhere between THE SUPREMES and THE SHANGRI-LA’s. It’s irresistible and super catchy, with those “oh oh ohs” that were born to be hummed. It’s a rare bird in the group’s discography and it shows their versatility and that, whatever style they choose to work with, they are always spot on with the melodies, and manage to keep their immediacy intact. “Judy Don’t Dance” uses soul and dance music to prove to us once again what we were just saying. Light-footed strings, danceable rhythms, and distorted guitars compose the cocktail of elements that come together in the most unpredictable way to make another perfect hit.

So now the only thing left to do is wait for the imminent arrival of “Day-Glo Dreams”. We are impatient.
