Ulterior Motifs

by Jerry Galeries

supported by
Vinushika thumbnail
Vinushika The finest modern city pop there is. This album stands unrivalled, even by titans in the genre like Hitomitoi. I love every second of it: it flows excellently from one song to the next, it's a gorgeous self-contained package, and it's gorgeous, optimistic songs from start to finish. Jerry Galeries captures not just the style but also the relentless optimism of city pop. If you've got even a passing fancy for the genre - grab this album now. Favorite track: Days of Summer.

Nos Add Easily one-upping their first release, 'Ulterior Motifs' takes us back to a summer in the 80's that many listeners didn't exist in. 'Two-Choices' and 'News@9' serve as an intro and interlude that depart from the rich instrumentation of the album's contents but still fit within its context. Jerry Galeries includes the genuine cycle of blossoming new relationships, tearing them apart, facing regret, and repeating the cycle. It's a new classic lost in another time. Favorite track: Ain't Nobody.

Two Choices 02:31
When times are bad you're next to me Ever so softly you will say Don't be afraid just let it be Go on and find your way, boy (Only you can touch my heart and soul) I found my home here in your arms (Only you can save me from my sorrows) Please let me stay right here cause Your love keeps me hangin' on till the end of time Your love keeps me going strong woah oh oh oh oh Your love keeps me hangin' on till the end of time and I won't ever let you go When tears go falling you have me I'm here so you don't have to face the world alone and come to see It's better to believe, girl
She know's you are trying trying to cross the line He said "don't resist it, baby I can make you mine" Oh yeah~ Don't keep me waiting forever better start pulling the lever Looks like it's gonna be over even before it's got started That's what she said That is what she said Don't break a sweat Don't you break a sweat cause you know all about it Your game is over you can take your leave tonight Yeah~ He said "don't regret it, you can call me anytime" Oh no~
News@9 02:14
You've got to be kidding me with your temporary passion Those foolish eyes can be just waiting for reactions Find me the time to play your games and now I've had enough It's time to go the other way Don't tell me that you love me Don't tell me that you care Don't say that you'll look for me when you ain't even there Don't tell me that you miss me Don't tell me that it's fair Don't say that you've been lonely When I've had my share How dare you come to me to beg for my compassion You had the chance to treat treat me right from the beginning
Take me back again to a time when we're by the shore Got no price to pay all we had was the sun's kisses we wore The years they go on by but dreams we keep inside It makes me wanna dance again with someone that I adore Ooh ooh ooh ooh The days of summer Ooh ooh ooh ooh Yes I remember that we are never growing old She was just as shy but her lips showed me otherwise Whispered to the wind may our promise become part of the sky We spread our wings to be together endlessly but I know we can only dream forever in love we're free
Ain't Nobody 03:55
Tell me what's gonna make you smile Tell me how can you start again Not your calling isn't that a shame Don't you know there's no need to wait What'cha see when you're in a daze Dreaming on of some other place Waking up what is there to say You just got to find you way Ain't nobody's gonna regret it It doesn't matter just how much you try Don't you worry you'll find an answer I'll take you somewhere so far away from here Ain't nobody's gonna remember All of the things that were not in their favour Love yourself don't please anyone cause you're so much better higher than stars above When you find you're all alone with no one to depend on Don't you dare be blue Yes I'll be there for you Close your eyes you'll realise There's so much more to do Get up and fight the war (Oh) what'cha waiting for Your love keeps me hangin' on Your love keeps me goin' strong Your love keeps me hangin' on
Dreams take away every night to all the places we have been the spaces that we miss Time it sits between us every day and I can never find the words to say that I'm regretting Don't you know reality is blind You can't stop the hands of time Believe your heart You don't even have to try I am here forever in your heart Even though we're far apart we'll always have another start It's my fate but you have got to know For as long as I'm alive I know that I should've never let you go There, there's not a reason to pretend That you will never be alone inside this empty home Smile, just keep on smiling for all time Don't let them know that you have died so long ago inside Don't you know you're always on my mind Living in this perfect lie Forget me now Tomorrow will be fine
