about

Since Empathy Test's conception in January 2013, the unsigned London electronic pop duo has released two stunning, four-track EPs: Losing Touch (Feb. 2014) and Throwing Stones (Dec. 2014), which have won them both critical acclaim and a legion of dedicated fans worldwide. Their music has been featured by the likes of MTV's Catfish, XFM, KCRW, BBC Introducing, Clash, Idolator, Earmilk, PopMatters and many more.

In 2015, Empathy Test booked and co-headlined their own UK tour, performed to an audience of 1,000+ at Wave-Gotik-Treffen Festival in Germany, headlined Riba Rocks Festival in Spain and shared stages with everyone from Bombay Bicycle Club to The Japanese House.

In 2016, Empathy Test released a new double a-side single Demons | Seeing Stars and joined Bristol Synth Pop legends Mesh on a two week tour of Europe. They are currently planning a second single plus further tours and festival performances in 2017. Catch them at Planet Myer Day (Leipzig, 13/1/17), Electronic Winter (Gothenburg 28/1/17) and Amphi (Cologne, 22/7/17).

Track Name: Throwing Stones
Flicking through yesterday’s news
Slipping my neck into the noose again
Well it fits so well.
Doesn't know where her loyalties lie -
Then again neither do I.
Going out getting drunk on gin
Waking up in her arms but then I
Never knew it would be so hard
Never knew I would be a part of this
Bitterness.

I try to fall awake but I still sleep
Wait for a week but I am weak
And resolutions fail
And once again I'm throwing stones
At your window.
Throwing stones
At your window.

Stand in the payphone count to ten
But you won’t call me back again.
Sends a little shiver right through me
When I hear you running down to me.
But I know you’ll only turn away
‘Cause you've got nothing left to say to me
Well; hear me out.

I try to fall awake but I still sleep
Wait for a week but I am weak.
And resolutions fail
And once again I'm throwing stones
At your window.
Throwing stones
At your window.
Throwing stones
At your window.
Throwing Stones
At your window.
Track Name: Here Is The Place
Drive me slow, down the road
Sound the horn on every bend.
Bow your heads, respect the dead
For he had many, many friends.
Now follow the road, through the tunnel of trees
To the big, wide open field.
And take a left, up the muddy track
To the house where I grew up...

And here is the place, when I die,
I want you to bury me
Beneath this old, willow tree
Enough of an epitaph for me.
And here is the place, when I die,
I want you to bury me
These friendly roots will hold my bones
And I will never be alone.

Stop the car, on the track
Stoop to kiss me - I can't kiss you back
Shed no tears, for all the years
You've made up for what I lacked.
And heave me up, to head height
On the shoulders of my friends.
And lay me down, on the lawn
When all the curtains have been drawn...

And here is the place, when I die,
I want you to bury me
Beneath this old, willow tree
Enough of an epitaph for me
And here is the place, when I die,
I want you to bury me
These friendly roots will hold my bones
And I will never be alone.
Track Name: Holding On
The moment that you wake from your disguise
They record you with their eyes.
No matter how, long or hard they try
You know they won’t shake it
You know they won’t shake it.

Reaching for the seam that holds you in
To find where you begin.
Frozen in the pose they've chalked us in
You know we can’t break it
You know we can’t break this.

Slowly disappearing out of view
Holding on to you.

Slowly disappearing out of view
Holding on to you.

The shutter clicks and we’re immortalised
Flashbulb our goodbyes.
No matter how, long or hard you try
You know you can’t fake it
You know you can’t fake this.

Slowly disappearing out of view
Holding on to you.

Slowly disappearing out of view
Holding on to you.

Slowly disappearing out of view
Holding on to you.

Slowly disappearing out of view
Holding on to you.
