about

Comprised of legendary beatboxer Killa Kela and former Basement Jaxx vocalist Ami Carmine, Them&Us' highly distinctive style has been described as ‘a Game Of Tones’ perfectly encapsulating their capacity to blend the ethereal. melodic & beautiful with heavy bass and massive beats.

Created in collaboration with super-producers James Rushent (Prodigy), Greg Wells (One Republic) and Eliot James (Bloc Party), Chapter 1 is just the beginning... From the menacing build of 'Ami's Theme' to the huge beat and soaring top lines of 'Sleep Talk' and 'Happy Ever After', the combination makes for an irresistible debut; already described as ‘massive’ by Alex Baker (Kerrang!) and ‘epic stuff’ by Eddy Temple Morris (XFM),
Them&Us have also picked up major support Stateside from the likes of California radio stations KROQ and KCRW.

Track Name: Ami's Theme/And So It Begins...
And so it begins...(INTRO)
On a world created on complete opposites,
Arrivals & departures, Light & dark, good & evil,
We strayed fragmented waiting for that new complete opposite.
Picture this on that day that was...
The Green tones of the rolling hills screamed for mercy when their machines arrived The land eaten by titanic steps, they were emotionless
Their massive drops gave their harmonious lands nervous breakdowns
Her retaliation?
The wind and rain came,
The winter froze to the core
The Power of nature violently shook the landscapes of her virus and the deception of these poisonous elements
They paled in her gradient, and we knew so..
We waited, retaliated into the unforgiving forrest floors, drinking the woods run to stay warm.. We took stock..
Children became heroes,
Seriously playing out their ideas using their forefathers creative foundations
Finding other ways of thinking things through..
They said fight them, we said how hard? We wanted our animal instincts returned, We wanted our human touch
Men & Women spoke in unison, saying the same asks..
If you're anything like me, I just wanna be,
And maybe, not now, but soon, voices will be heard in our future tapestry
All In one and as a theme, we forged our new exact opposites There are THEM..... then there are US..
Track Name: Sleep Talk

Can you keep a secret & still love me the same? Love me the same, Love me the same? x 2

Ive been talking in my sleep, Stories whispered in the dark. Tell me will you keep a secret? Cause I think I said too much..
(OOO)
Ive been talking in my, Ive been talking in my Sleep (OOO)

Ive been talking in my, Ive been talking in my sleep

The fire inside, wakes up at night

Breaks my defences a wolf in disguise

The Fire Inside, wakes up at night

Taking my dreams now theres nowhere to hide so i..


Burn, Burn, Burn it down

Burn, Burn, Burn it down

Ive been talking in my sleep, Stories whispered in the dark. Tell me will you keep a secret? Cause I think I said too much..
(OOO)
Ive been talking in my, Ive been talking in my Sleep (OOO)
Ive been talking in my, Ive been talking in my sleep

The fire inside, wakes up at night

Breaks my defences a wolf in disguise

The Fire Inside, wakes up at night

Taking my dreams now theres nowhere to hide so I...

Burn, Burn, Burn it down x 4


And the fires bright,
In the night sky, and under my skin.. (Make it burn)

Look at the bridges we burn

Look at the bridges we burn
Look at the bridges we burn
Look at the bridges we .... Ive been talking in my..
(OOO)
My world is burning,
Im holding, my breath in

Cant control it, so I'm holding my breath in Ooh

Burn, Burn, Burn it down..
Track Name: Happy Never After

Drifting on a Monday morning'
Sway the way the pendulum flies
Head of sugar coated dreaming'
with a heart full of sunshine

Dancing through the April showers, Living like we just don't care,

Every day the worlds our playground, We are walking on air


But then the seasons changed and everything gets colder, 
and the nights were so much longer cause the fire inside was burning out

And when i turn the page, nothing is the same as I remember and there is no happy ever after...


Just another Monday morning (Wuh) Whats it gonna be this time?

Head is spinning in full circle,
 and I can't see the sunshine.

Running from the heavy showers,
 Live and let the hours roll on,

Whatever happened to our playground, Now the colours all wrong.

And then the seasons changed and everything got colder,

and the nights were so much longer cos the fire inside was burning out

And when I turned the page, nothing was the same as I remember and there was no happy ending like i dreamed about,

Theres just an empty space, just a twisted fairytale,

written by my own hands, played by my own self

And now its too late to try and write a new page,

Guess Its just another Happy Never After..

Fuck another Monday morning, Its everyday for all I care

Whats the point in even trying? Cause the suns never been there
Over me the rain keeps pouring,
I drown a little more each time
Never got to see our playground, but I think about it sometimes
I think about it sometime
s,
I think about it sometimes..
Track Name: Heart Attack
Cant we try and find another way, another way?

Cause I hate that Im,

counting down the days til you give me another taste (Want all of you) Don't make me wait

Don't take your drug away its a habit I don't wanna give up


(Ahh) Now I know real love, Forever is not enough

Its thrilling me

Oh you hit me like a heart attack, you keep me holding on,
Your love is electric

Oh you hit me like a Heart Attack, now theres no coming back
You leave me breathless

Keep me safe & calm boy,

You're the one and only 
Keeps my eyes open

Every second counts boy, the more you give the more I'm yearning
Don't take your drug away from me,
Cause I can't see, the woods for the trees and the rain pours down every time that you leave, i go cold (huuuuh)

And my heart beats faster than a smoking gun,

Its the great escape but you know I'm only running to you, Oooooh

Oh you hit me like a heart attack, you keep me holding on,
Your love is electric

Oh you hit me like a Heart Attack, now theres no coming back
You leave me breathless X2
Track Name: Lost Our Heads
Shut my eyes,
 And hold on tight

If we're in darkness now, then wheres the light?
We messed It up,

Theres No way Out,

Climbing the highest heights to,
Come crashing down


We've lost our heads again,
 Cause its all that we know,

we put 'em back and reload, and it go on (& on)
The writings on the wall

And a fool in front of me
, we're breaking it all

We've lost our heads again

Cause its all that we know,
we put 'em back and reload,
and it go on (& on)
If its love we're fighting for,
 tell me who's the enemy

Breaking it all??


Line by line,
the perfect rhyme

Beautiful music til our beats,
 moved out of time

but I don't wanna be, wanna be anywhere else tonight.
Even If its killing me, Killing me I'll dance into the fire


We've lost our heads again,

Cause its all that we know,
we put 'em back and reload,
and it go on (& on)
The writings on the wall

And a fool in front of me, 
we're breaking it all

We've lost our heads again

Cause its all that we know, 
we put 'em back and reload,
and it go on (& on)
If its love we're fighting for, 
tell me who's the enemy

Breaking it all??


Even when the skies are falling down,
We'll do it over and over and over

Not getting off this merry go round

We do it over and over and over......


We've lost our heads again

We've lost our heads again

We've lost our heads again

We've lost that love again

Now that door has been opened
Now that door has been opened
And the bond has been broken
Yes the bond has been broken X2
