about

Unmistakable on sight by their frontman's interstellar ginger afro, songsmiths Timothy Nelson & The Infidels – last heard from with the anthemic 2013 hits Born In The '90s and Mary Lou – have delivered their masterwork: album number two, Terror Terror, Hide It Hide It. A bold and fully-developed artistic statement, Terror Terror, Hide It Hide It marks an evolutionary step forward for the band, who have worked in deeper collaboration than ever to create their best and most varied songs to date, captured beautifully by producer Joel Quartermain.

As indicated by the vast musical distance travelled by Timothy Nelson & The Infidels since their 2011 debut album I Know This Now, the band aren't genre writers. They want to explore. To dabble. So there are very few limits on where their songs can go, in the broad spectrum of pop music. Terror Terror, Hide It Hide It covers so much ground as it unfolds... from straight up radio anthems (Calling Out To You, Inside My Head, Mary Lou) to the haunting and minimalist (Do U Need It, Rush) and from Manchester (All The People) to the Mississippi (Cocoa Jackson), the band's imagination has run rampant. The magic at the heart of every song: their love of / knack for earworms. An innate ability to write a hook.

Instrumentally beautiful and richly complex, Terror Terror, Hide It Hide It also boasts The Infidels' best musicianship to date. A who's who of Perth music's vanguard, The Infidels is an impressive lineup of multi-instrumentalists able to manoeuvre into an almost endless variety of ensembles of strings, keys, vocals and percussion. This level of sheer capability and collaboration between Nelson, the band and Joel Quartermain (whose decade-long songwriting accomplishments in Eskimo Joe need little explaining) has allowed the ensemble to strive for loftier heights than ever before, resulting in an album that simply speaks for itself.

Terror Terror, Hide It Hide It shows just how rapid and exponential the musical growth of Timothy Nelson & The Infidels has been. Just a few years ago they were winning Western Australia's highest music awards, nominated as a folk band. Now, without missing a step, Timothy Nelson & The Infidels have become almost indefinably musically vast; capable of bringing to life any of the wondrous music that pops into their imagination.

Track Name: Soldier
Tried my best to tell you the truth
When everything is hanging on you
To give it away
It feels like time has dealt you a hand
And nobody else can understand
Or that’s what you say
You're acting like there’s a place you can
Materialise in the back of your head
Out of the way

And you keep telling yourself you’re a soldier
And it’ll be there (and it’ll be there)
Oh, I gotta tell you (you’re a soldier)
That it’ll be there, and it’ll be there when you start

Caught up in the thick of it all
And holding back from making the call
Well how would you know?
You’re just so tired of hanging around
It took too long to figure it out
With nothing to show
You're acting like you’re a different man
It used to be in the palm of your hand
Where did it go?

And you keep telling yourself you’re a soldier
And it’ll be there (and it’ll be there)
Oh, I gotta tell you (you’re a soldier)
That it’ll be there, and it’ll be there when you start

Oh, you’re a soldier
And it’ll be there (and it’ll be there)
Oh, I gotta tell you (you’re a soldier)
That it’ll be there, and it’ll be there when you start
Track Name: Calling Out To You
I’m intoxicated by you
There’s nothing in the world I can do
Well you had me at the start
And I was doomed
I’m infatuated with you
There’s something in the air of the room
Well you had me at the start
But I was doomed,

Well, are you out tonight?
I want to know where I need to go
(I’m calling out to you)
Well, are you out tonight?
I want to know where I need to go
(I’m calling out to you, I’m calling out to you)

Call you in the morning like you
Told me that I never should do
Well I’m dreaming and I’m fiending
Over you

Well, are you out tonight?
I want to know where I need to go
(I’m calling out to you)
Well, are you out tonight?
I want to know where I need to go
(I’m calling out to you, I’m calling out to you)

(I’m calling out to you)
Hey!

You’ve got to tell me baby (tell me, tell me)
You’ve got to give it away (hide it, hide it )
I’m hiding away
It’s such a terrible thing (terror, terror)
You’ve got to hide it away (hide it, hide it)
I’m calling out to you

Well, are you out tonight?
I want to know where I need to go
(I’m calling out to you)
Well, are you out tonight?
I want to know where I need to go
(I’m calling out to you, I’m calling out to you)
Track Name: All I Ever
I should have stayed at home today
Who the hell at this time’s awake, anyway?
Sometimes the world it seems so cruel
When you’re a fool and you never know what to do
It makes sense if she’s been sad
But I have given all I have, it’s all I ever do
And everyone’s in on it too
And you’re a fool, who never knows what to do

She plays it cool
With envy in her eyes
You’re just a jealous fool
A consolation prize

I should’ve stayed at home tonight
I should’ve played my cards right
But you know I never do
And you keep saying it’s not true
I’m so confused, if I leave it all up to you

She plays it cool
With envy in her eyes
You’re just a jealous fool
A consolation prize

Well I guess always wore my heart on my sleeve
And I can go if you’re asking me to leave
Happiness is all I ever wanted
It’s all I’ll ever need
Track Name: Out Of My Mind
You’ve got the key to my head
Took out the love and made wish I was dead
I know I’m too messed up to decide
It’s such a sick and twisted world outside,
One thing you should understand
Inside my head there’s a different man to who you know
I left my luck in the gutter
Tripped before you though I’d get it together

So you noticed me, but I didn’t notice you
Won’t you let me be, ‘cause I’m coming through

Now I’m so out of my mind
It happens all the time, I never saw the signs
Everything is so…
So out of my mind, on everything I find
I don’t believe the signs
Everything’s so new to me

If I could get you to see
It’s flipped the switch to bring the freak out in me, I can fix it
It’s been a joke for too long
Such a swindler, if I killed ya, would you say that it’s wrong?

So you noticed me, I didn’t notice you
Won’t you let me be, ‘cause I’m coming through

Now I’m so out of my mind
It happens all the time, I never saw the signs
Everything is so…
So out of my mind, on everything I find
I don’t believe the signs
Everything is so…
So out of my mind
It happens all the time, I never saw the signs
Everything is so…
So out of my mind, on everything I find
I don’t believe the signs
Track Name: Do U Need It
Free reign with the old terrain
I never once got scared
A quick fix just to numb the pain
Without a second to spare

And it goes...
'I won’t let this happen again'
I know, we can only pretend
I thought we were on the mend, until she said to me
‘Now I’m beginning to think, now I’m beginning to think...'

Do you need it when I’m looking out for ya?
Do you need it when I’m head over heels?
Do you need it when I want to be with ya?
Do ya? Do ya? Do ya?

Set sail with the animal eyes
I always end up there
It’s a cocktail with modafinil highs
If you're willing to share

And it goes...
'I won’t let this happen again'
I know, we can only pretend
I thought we were on the mend, until she said to me
‘Now I’m beginning to think, now I’m beginning to think...'

Do you need it when I’m looking out for ya?
Do you need it when I’m head over heels?
Do you need it when I want to be with ya?
Do ya? Do ya? Do ya?
Track Name: All The People
All the people, fall into a haze
Drop the needle, give it all away

It was a castle of love, it was a wretched den
I knew I’d do it once, oh but never again
I saw the look in your eyes, there was time to be spent
On reminding yourself how to choose your friends
We were dancing like kissers and kissing like dancers
Flirting with questions, expecting no answers
I’m telling you now, ain’t no way to resist
A girl like you in a place this, to think

All the people, fall into a haze
(I heard the calling and I had to say yes)
Drop the needle, give it all away
(Give it all away)
All the people, fall into a haze
(I heard the calling and I had to say yes)
Drop the needle, give it all away
It was a fresh idea, something I’d not seen
They said I was a friend although I’d never been
But something did change about the way that I think
Maybe it’s something to do with what you put in my drink
Oh but me I was different, I was feeling reborn
Between the hours of 7:36 and dawn
And to tell you the truth, ain’t no man could resist
A girl like you in a place like this

All the people, fall into a haze
(I heard the calling and I had to say yes)
Drop the needle, give it all away
(Give it all away)
All the people, fall into a haze
(I heard the calling and I had to say yes)
Drop the needle, give it all away
All the people, give it all away
Track Name: Mary Lou
Cut to the breaking of the morning
I was struck down by a fear
Every light went out without a warning
On the crystal chandelier
And I’m desperate to get out

The things you do to me
Were hidden in between the lines
But not so hard to read
Come on

Mary Lou, I keep telling you
That you’re killing me
Won’t you set me free?
Mary Lou, I keep telling you
That you’re killing me
Won’t you set me free?

I spent some time there with the strangers
Hanging on your every word
And it ain’t a crime to be deranged, but
I knew that we’d get burned
Oh you have to let me out

The things you do to me
Were hidden in between the lines
But not so hard to read
Come on

Mary Lou, I keep telling you
That you’re killing me
Won’t you set me free?
Mary Lou, I keep telling you
That you’re killing me
Mary Lou

Someone get my back, it’s out of my control
They all drop like flies now I’m just waiting
The confidence I lack begins to take its toll
It wasn’t worth the high
Now I’m just waiting

Mary, Mary, come on,
Mary Lou
Track Name: Cocoa Jackson
Cocoa Jackson, no satisfaction
You’re my pretty Polaroid with a handwritten caption
This could never happen, you tell me all the time
Well I know the other nuns
Wouldn’t notice in the night if you’re gone
Cocoa Jackson, my love was never sanctioned
I just think I can convince you with a little bit of action
Honey, in my fantasy you trade in your habit
For a Sgt Pepper sweater and we kick it to Stax records

So please, honey please
Why don’t you go for a man you can see
I need what I need
But you keep saying you’ll be praying for me

Cocoa Jackson, why do you ignore me?
You treat me like I’m nothing and you’re leaving me lonely
I thought everything they taught you was love
But I’m beginning to think that enough is enough, uh huh

So please, honey please
Why don’t you go for a man you can see
I need what I need
But you keep saying you’ll be praying for me

You’re living in a world forgiven by a world forgot
I’ve got a bone to pick with a man you call God
I keep losing, losing, losing out to a higher…
I keep losing, losing, losing out to a higher…
I keep losing, losing, losing out
To a higher love

A higher love, a higher love
A higher love,
To a higher love (Higher, higher)
A higher love (higher, higher)
To a higher love (higher, higher)
A higher (higher, higher)
A higher love
Track Name: Inside My Head
You saw the rise and the fall
The terrible time of it all
The weight of the world it is gone
When everybody walks out the door

And what about this thing called love?
What about this thing called loving?
What about this thing called love?
Is it obvious enough?

But I know you’d hate to live
And I know you’d hate to live
Inside my head
Inside my head
And I know you’d hate to live
And I know you’d hate to live
Inside my head
Inside my head

Caught up in drifting away
It’s all I can do to contain
I’m wasting it all in the name
Of keeping it hidden away

And what about this thing called love?
What about this thing called loving?
What about this thing called love?
Is it obvious enough?

But I know you’d hate to live
And I know you’d hate to live
Inside my head
Inside my head
And I know you’d hate to live
Yeah, you’d hate to live
Inside my head
Inside my head…
Track Name: Rush
I’m cursed with the conscience of a guilt ridden crook
Where cabs look like cops every time that I look
It’s the rush, it’s the rush, it’s the rush
I’m hopped up on clues to the answers I need
They said you might have them but I’ve got to leave
It’s the rush, it’s the rush, it’s the rush

And I know that I’ve only myself to blame
‘Cause I’m deep in the throws of a selfish game

A red-light lover on the hunt for a scam
She lifts up her shirt and says give me your hand
It’s the rush, it’s the rush, it’s the rush
I don’t have to warn ya, you’ve seen it yourself
I’m calling out for ya, I’m begging you for help
It’s the rush, it’s the rush, it’s the rush

And I know that I’ve only myself to blame
‘Cause I’m deep in the throws of a selfish game

I know you’re gonna get it, but I’ll be gone
Tell your friends I won’t be home
It’s the rush (it’s the rush, it’s the rush)
I know you’re gonna get it, but I’ll be gone
Tell your friends I won’t be home
It’s the rush (it’s the rush, it’s the rush)

And I know that I’ve only myself to blame
‘Cause I’m deep in the throws of a selfish game
I would stand by my word if I could stand at all
We’re taking on board what you told us all

I know you’re gonna get it, but I’ll be gone
Tell your friends I won’t be home
It’s the rush (it’s the rush, it’s the rush)
I know you’re gonna get it, but I’ll be gone
Tell your friends I won’t be home
It’s the rush (it’s the rush, it’s the rush)
