about

Houdini London, UK

Houdini are a band of three people who play heavy rock music. Unpeeled.net said of their latest single:

“Sharp and fuzzy math-punk, sleazy too, especially on the shifting, crunchy maze of sound on the flip, “Treading Water". It’s very good, it’s sound as sculpture, it’s clean and clever, but it’s also a straight, double barrel blast of rock music.”

Track Name: deadlines
wanna meet
wanna meet
wanna meet the deadlines
can u throw me
can u throw me
can u throw me a lifeline

they raise my heartbeat
raise my bp
raise my bpm
i’m their biggest fan
i’m devout to them
but never there to greet them

poster on my wall
memo on my desk
need a way to find them
need a backstage pass
fire exit glass
never far behind them

they raise my heartbeat
raise my bp
raise my bpm
i’m their biggest fan
i’m devout to them
but never there to greet them

oh…
meet the deadlines
meet the deadlines

gonna finish me
gonna cross me off
‘less i cross that finish line
gonna punch me in
to the paving
punishment the punchline

they raise my heartbeat
raise my bp
raise my bpm
i’m their biggest fan
i’m devout to them
never there to greet them


oh…
meet the deadlines
meet the deadlines
Track Name: el hombre invisible
i know you’re there
i look you in the eyes and you disappear
spinning off in the air
holding on to the ghosts that brought you here
back to dust back to particles parallel
yours are footsteps on the invisible
staircase in the air
swept you up under the gap under the back door

for a moment
i catch your eye
and in an instant
i know why you come by

take my hand take my hand
lead me off to the other world
you’re treading the air, treading the air
and i’m just trying to keep myself afloat
back to dust back to particles parallel
yours are footsteps on the invisible
staircase in the air
swept you up under the gap under the back door

for a moment
i catch your eye
and in an instant
i know why you come by
Track Name: sleepdriving
you’re on the wrong page
just check the back for the solution
wake up / wake up / wake up / wake up!!!

screw your head on collision
drivin in the wrong direction
wake up! wake up! yeah the hazard lights are flashin!

cuz you are oh you are
you are going the wrong way
you are oh you are
you are going the wrong way

i’ll keep drivin’ all night long
red lights strike me, i go on
i’m on my own but i’m, i’m on a roll
i’m on the road where i’d rather be

i lost the will and replaced it with a way
screw your head on / head on / screw your head on collision

cuz you are oh you are
you are going the wrong way
you are oh you are
you are going the wrong way

you are / you are / you are going the wrong way
i’m on my own but i’m, i’m on a roll
i’m on the road where i’d rather be
Track Name: come closer
why do u fight it when u know that you've got it?
and would you lose it if i told you you had it?
come close to me

my doctor used to be but now a storyteller
he’s writing scripts for people LEFT RIGHT and CENTER
come close to me

come close to me
come close to me

why run away from the things that you’re chasing?
is it the fear that it’s fear you’ll be facing?
come close to me


tell me what you know about me
i’m bleedin but it’s not as it seems
tell me what you know about me
and not the shit you read off that screen
tell me what you know about me
i’m bleedin for a nurse to fix me
tell me what you know about me
i’m lookin like i wanna be seen
