about

The Blueprints are...

Stuart Allan - Guitar/Vocals
Russell Broadbent - Drums/Vocals
Sophie McDonnell- Keys/Vocals (NEW MEMBER)
Mark Waters - Bass Guitar

Our new five track EP entitled The Shipping Forecast includes the epic roar of the single 'Walk', the anthemic jangle of 'The Wave', the infectious wonky pop of 'Black & Blue', the whirling dervish of 'Staring At The Sun' and the EP is rounded of with a lilting 'The Amber Ocean'.

... More than just a random collection of songs, the whole EP has a maritme theme and seafairing references throughout. Oceans, icebergs, harbours and ships pull the songs together into one cohesive piece of work.

All songs written by S. Allan - except 'Staring at the Sun' by Allan/Broadbent/Williams/Waters

Track Name: Walk
You've got to wind it up and let it go
Let the momentum gather
Another pocket full of anecdotes
Torn up and scattered
You're in a village on the edge of town
Looking in from the outside
To tell the truth it never suited you
You close your eyes and say good bye

You threw a penny in the ocean
And then you walk away, walk away
You made it feel so natural
Like it was everyday, everyday
You're taking pillars out of temples
And calling them your home
And then you walk away, walk away
Walk

You're displaying all the traits of a maritime disaster
Your lying eyes as white as icebergs that tear and shatter
And in the middle of a nightmare the wild wind does howl
It's voice is crying out in dispair
But no one hears it's shouts

You threw a penny in the ocean
And then you walk away, walk away
You made it feel so natural
Like it was everyday, everyday
You're taking pillars out of temples
And calling them your home

But if you think that it's over
Then that's the catalyst
But this is still the summer I spy through all that mist
And then you walk away
I'll never walk away
And then you walk away
I'll never walk away

You threw a penny in the ocean
And then you walk away, walk away
You threw a penny in the ocean
And then you walk away
And then you walk away
I'll never walk away
