Intro 02:24

Blinded 04:44
Observe the world, and what will we find? Computers, disasters, politicians; so blind Where is the hope for out future kin, the walls are thick around this box we're in Chorus x2 Blinded by technology, Rid of the mythology spoon fed from a strangers hand Breath cannot be drawn, without a bitter taste the manipulation we face, as the human race Someone somewhere is somebody's daughter, but this girl won't give up, come hell or high water Chorus x4 to outro Blinded by technology, rid of the mythology, spoon fed from a strangers hand

Hands Untied 05:00
The sweet has turned sour, a bitter taste in our mouths I may drown in contention, if I speak my mind out loud Take a look through my eyes, looking in from the outside I’m not bound by their enterprise I live life with my hands untied Our hands untied Our hands untied Our hands untied Our hands untied This ocean consumes them, full of deceit and our doubts We may drown in contention If we speak our minds out loud Take a look through our eyes Looking in from the outside We’re not bound their enterprise We live life with our hands untied Our hands untied Our hands untied Our hands untied Our hands untied Looking in from the outside, we live life with our hands untied Repeat to outro
4.
Hold Me Down 05:16
Hold me down Don't let me lose control now I'm hanging on to what I know I've seen the beauty And I've seen the darker side Of what we all live and breathe See me I want more I just can't ignore the finer things I live life through you In love, laughter and truth And we're all just passing through Hold me down Hold me down Hold me down Hold me down Out on my own now And I will reap what I sow I'm realigned Changing on the inside Cutting all ties that bind See me I want more I just can't ignore the finer things I live life through you In love, laughter and truth And we're all just passing through Hold me down Hold me down Hold me down
5.
From Ashes 04:18
Chase the dream 
What’s left to believe Endless roads 
Unpicked at the seam Chorus (Hook) But I will not hang my head too low 
Rose from ashes once before I’ve come to far just to let this go Labour of love
 But one that deceives The time, the passion Strength and belief 
 Chorus (Hook)
 But I will not hang my head too low
 Rose from ashes once before
I’ve come to far just to let this go


about

In early 2017, after several years of releasing music as a production only outfit, with appearances from various talented musicians, and with BBC 6Music and Radio 1 airplay under their belt, Pat Dooner and Carl Conway- Davis announced that they would be taking The Broken Orchestra live with the help of Emily Render (Vocals) and Tom Kay (Guitar). This resulted in a sold out debut show in August 2017.
The obvious next step was for The Broken Orchestra to follow this line up through to production and recordings. There lies the beginning of the brand new ‘Blinded EP’. This release is the first since welcoming new members Emily and Tom Kay to the fold.
The EP, Produced and mixed by The Broken Orchestra and mastered by Pete Maher (The 1975, U2, Paul Weller), features 5 brand new tracks which combine the trademark chopped, laid back, melodic trip-hop with ambient textures.
