about

"Please note: Playback/streaming of these tracks via this site is of an unusually poor quality (I don't know why!). As such it does not represent or reproduce the full quality of the audio files.

.................................

"In my opinion, Myheadisaballoon's Pop Goes The People! would be a solid contender for winning the Welsh Music Prize this year...a most excellent music project."
[TheWaitingroom Radioshow]

"...one of those ever-restless creative types he has a new project, Myheadisaballoon, up and running as an outlet for his skewed folk pop with album Pop Goes The People!...a woozy slice of lo-fi dream pop that's like bathing in a particularly lush sunset."
[Clash Magazine]

.................................

Pop Goes The People! is an album of melodic, idiosyncratic, pop/folk songs, from the mind of a daydreamer...Myheadisaballoon unites Dream-Pop & Lo-Fi sensibilities with a refreshingly simple, honest & emotive refrain.
This is 'pure, heart-felt, shoegazing pop'. No samples, no unnecessary over-polished production, and absolutely no auto-tune!
In a time of cynical, generic, and overwrought manufactured pop music, Myheadisaballoon strips things back, champions the DIY aesthetic and delivers music which is full of character, charm, imagination and sincerity.

[Herb Recordings]

Track Name: Start To Begin
Backup all your memories,
Put them in a hole,
Hide them somewhere safely,
So you never lose your soul.
Draw the curtains tightly,
Don't let the summer in,
It all adds up to something,
You can't start to begin.
Track Name: Treefella
It's hard to do what you want to do,

Treefella...

It's hard to do what you want to do.

Are you listening?
Can you hear me?
There's no place that I would rather be
Than sitting up here in my tree.
Broken branches
Building bridges
I've been waiting here impatiently
For you to join me up in my tree.

So...
Throw out your goods
Come to the woods
& find yourself a tree,
& climb up to the top with me.

Oooh weee, I'm up in a tree...

Are you listening?
Can you hear me?
It's nothing like I thought it would be
So I'm hiding up here in my tree.

Chop my head off
Count the rings
& let me know just how old I am
Cos lately I feel like an old man.

You can chop me up
Cut me down
But I'll be back again,
My roots are strong
I stand alone
No time for foolish friends,
My wooden heart
Is strong as oak
No medium density,

So this is where I'll be
In my tree...
Track Name: Birdspotter
Birdspotter,
I can see,
Way up in the,
Big tall tree,
A little bird & he's singing just for me,

Singing out,
A lonely song,
A timeless melody.

Birdspotter,
I can hear,
A sudden sound in the bushes,
Oh so near,
It's a little bird & he's singing just for me,

Singing out,
A lonely song,
A timeless melody.

Birdspotter,
I can see,
Way up in the,
Big tall tree,
A little bird & he's singing just for me,

Singing out,
A lonely song,
A timeless melody.

Track Name: Dust Yourself Down
If you fear the fall & fail my friend.
You can pick yourself back up again.
If the world & weight have worn you down,
Don't fool around
Dust yourself down
& start over.

If you wake & wonder what went wrong.
You can listen to your favourite song.
Makes you feel the world can't bring you down,
So don't fool around
Dust yourself down
& start over.
Track Name: Just Let It Go
Sometimes it's hard,
Sometimes it's tough,
Sometimes what you need is never enough,
Sometimes there's fear,
Sometimes there's love,

So breathe slow,
Just let it go, my love,
Breathe slow,
Tonight.

Sometimes we give,
Sometimes we take,
Sometimes everything that you feel is fake,
Sometimes we're high,
Sometimes we're low,

So breathe slow,
Just let it go, my love,
Breathe slow,
Just let it go, my love,
Breathe slow,
Tonight...
Track Name: Honey
You are the one,
Bright as the sun,
Alienated point of view.

You lost the plot,
& time forgot,
To bring me back closer to you.

But it's OK Honey,
Yeah, it's alright,
I'm just going out my mind...

Spend my days,
Doubled glazed,
Insulated hide-away.

A sticky end,
For you my friend,
Take us back to better days.

But it's OK Honey,
Yeah, it's alright,
I'm just going out my mind...
Track Name: Waiting For Weightlessness
Wait, For it...

Weightlessness...

The people here on earth they are all waiting,
& me I just sit staring into space,
The lost souls in their rocketships still orbiting the moon,
Don't you get your hopes up,
They wont be home anytime soon,

The wait goes...

On & On & On & On & On...
On & On & On & On & On...

Waiting here for weightlessness,
Waiting here for weightlessness.
Track Name: Hello Alien Sun
Hello Alien Sun
Track Name: Run & Hide
Sometimes I,
Want to,
Run & Hide,
Run & Hide.

Sometimes I,
Want to,
Run & Hide,
Run & Hide,
Away,
From you...

Sometimes I,
Get a...
Little bit lost,
Little bit lost.

So I,
Want to,
Run & Hide,
Run & Hide,
Away from everything that I see,
Away from me...
