about

Out on November 1st is the highly anticipated debut album by Dark-o-matic, entitled "New Hope". It consists of ten tracks, including "Zugzwang", "Make Me Blue" and "Authentic?" that have already won many fans over.

Dark-o-matic was started in 2017 by Greg Dovas who was later joined by the vocalist Piero Delux. Enlisting the help of sound engineer and producer George Nerantzis, the duo started recording their music best described as a cross between 80's wave music and synthpop but with a darker edge to it.

"New Hope" is sure to excite everyone who have loved Dark-o-matic's singles and become a great discovery for fans of synth music worldwide.

Track Name: New Hope
Too slow the path we choose to take
Heads down among the others
Ripping my heart to mold this day
Shifting to sounds that bring me pain
Seeding the grace you displayed
Blooming

Redesign the shape
You blame won’t hold the rain
Compromise
Until you break the present

Too broad the street we choose to fake
Too bright the range of colors
Sipping the charm it shines today
Feeling apart despite the fails
Falling downward the spiral
Slowly
Track Name: Zugzwang
Drifting along sweating for more
While I’m a little sore writing this song
Pictures are wrong, evermore tore
Asking for more ‘til it will stop, yeah

It’s not so easy for you
Rewind the reel
Until it feels right (x2)
Persist steadily true
Pull out the tricks
Until it feels right (x2)

Right or wrong, through the storm
In my bones, feel the warmth
Read the words on the wall
Tied the knot

If only ideals surrounded
The breach that froze the talk
Right or wrong, through the storm
In my bones, feel the hole

It’s not so easy for you
Rewind the reel
Until it feels right (x2)
Persist steadily true
Pull out the tricks
Until it feels right (x2)

Cast the stone through the hole
All the awe flies away
Raise the voice across the fence
From your frame

If all these waves surrounded
The walls that force behind it
Right or wrong, through the storm
In my bones, feel the hole

Drifting along sweating for more
While I’m a little sore writing this song
Pictures are wrong, evermore tore
Asking for more ‘til it will
'Til it stops, yeah

It’s not so easy for you
Rewind the reel
Until it feels right (x2)
Persist steadily true
Pull out the tricks
Until it feels right (x2)

Right or wrong, through the storm
In my bones, feel the warmth
Read the words on the wall
Tied the knot

Cast the stone through the hole
All the awe flies away
Raise the voice across the fence
From your frame

Drifting along sweating for more
While I’m a little sore writing this song
Pictures are wrong evermore tore
Asking for more ‘til it stops
Track Name: Ever After
Reaching the place where you can ignore
All we have been blamed together
Missing the chance to be saved evermore
It’s only a shift ever after (x2)

Stealing the chance to be safe and cared
Sounds like a move from a stranger
Heavily doped by your lack of pain
Briefly restored through your shelter (x2)

Skipping the path leading to your door
Sounds like a scene, remember?
Asking for more till the pic is clear
The scene will repeat forever (x2)

Extending the hope this was all a dream
Not much for us, surrender
Sealing the feel looking through the rear
It’s only me ever after (x2)

Finally cured this was all unclear
Finding warmth never matters
Seeking for wit will ease the tears
The story goes on ever after (x2)
Track Name: Rather Be
Take a look to what’s inside
Call it hope, call it home
Feel the dawn, while you mesmerize
Rather be there for (yourself) (x2)

Don’t look back, past is dreamlike
You’re on your own (x2)
Feel the cut of your ghosts
Rather be there for (x2)

Being alive, fences too high
Rather be there for (x2)
Being aside from what you hide
Rather be there for (yourself) (x2)

Feel the height from a restless night
In your bones, feel the ice
Turning back to that point in time
Rather be there for (x2)

Moving on from that empty cage
Rather be there for (x2)
Open up, you’re now exposed
Rather be there for (yourself) (x2)
Track Name: Make Me Blue
Standing close to that spot in the room
Where we were close
Impersonal
That moment that we chased so long
Now’s gone

Sore eyes, blue lights,
Shutting me down
Now moving on

Make me blue, I’m waiting for you
Cold and dry the breeze
Make me blue, I’m dreaming of you
Standing close to me

Hunting moments from our past
Growing in this empty shell through time
These memories will hopefully be gone

Sore eyes, blue lights,
Shutting me down
Now moving on
Track Name: Authentic?
Darkest hour
Looking through the sphere of doubts
Casting out the deepest thoughts
Kaleidoscope

Reaching out
Surfing on the veil of hope
Deep inside an empty road
Afraid of nights

Fading
Fades away tonight
Beware of all those states of mind
That seem true (x2)

Fades away (x2)

Searching around
For reasons to the lack of sound
Some are still defining words
For silence

Deluded by lights
Hitting in the sphere of doubts
Freezing in the march of time
Paling desire
Track Name: Past Trip
Proves
Of
Ties
In
Time
To blame
For those who want to pay
For the lies they drained
No more deals unrestrained

Faith
Too lonely
Breaks
Too lonely (x2)

Awake
Till I ride
In circle on the eye
That looks
At your side
No more wheels pre-required

Faith
Too lonely
Breaks
Too lonely (x2)

Disgrace
Delight
Displaced
Unbright
Regress into time (x2)
Track Name: All We Do Is Wait
Lights are dipping into this stage
Break the thoughts
While I’m awake to find the rimes
Through the faces on the line
Waiting

Sorting images around
Framing doubts into the rain
That’s falling
Can’t see if it’s me who’s calling

Sinking deep in you harmless
Shaping up without rest
Sounds are better heard
When one’s aware that
All we do is wait

Scorching pictures on the shelf
Asking for the time to lurk
From present wave
Past is commonplace
To free one’s breathing

Colors shading into pages
Sight is whimsical
When shapes start floating
I am aware it’s drifting
Track Name: A Cage With The Door Wide Open
Could the noise I hear at night
Stop deceiving
Could the drawing
That hangs in my mind
Stop the real

Would I look for the shade
That lies beneath the layers of shame
Would I reach for the light
That infiltrates
A cage with the door wide open (x2)

Further then the broken sign
Lies the reason
Isolated from the ones
That make me feel sole

Would I keep myself from feeling real
Through this poison
Could I find the kindness in this room

Could I rise while obsessed with the real
Should I find someone else to get in
A cage with door wide open (x2)
Track Name: So Real
A smile full of hope
You hold my hand and whisper

You hold me again
It looks so real
It feels so real
It is not you (x2)

Everything it’s alright
That was just a nightmare
Shining from your eyes
The light of compassion

You hold me again
It looks so real
It feels so real
It is not you (x2)

Just forgot how I missed you
How badly I want you
To be like in this dream
