Sync Log: Ladytron
Joe turned me on to this band, whose lyrics are filled with fascinating snippets of deeper meaning. I thought of this song - titled, of course, "Seventeen"- as an example of their esoteric hint-dropping and went to look up the lyrics to their scintillating little number, "Soft Power"...
...and am confronted with our friends in white and red. The song I was playing at the moment on my Itunes has even more hints of a specifically arcane nature...
We`re on the same high you and I
Open the same page, no sunrise
New day dawning
Black sun rising
Another new wrinkle in the endless fabric of Synchromysticitude...
