She whistles sad Sad summer songs She doesn’t know Where she belongs She reckons love Should be in the air But she cannot find It anywhere So she questions every single thing she knows And concludes that's just the way the story goes He hums a tune From the distant past When everything Seemed high contrast Today he sees The world in sepia Drenched in melancholy And nostalgia So he gives up on the hopes he used to entertain And retreats into his private blue domain Wrap it up It’s just another daydream out the door Doesn’t make a difference Shrug it off It’s not like you’ve never seen these things before Nothing too significant In the greater scheme of things Wrap it up It’s just another worldview out the door Doesn’t make a difference Shrug it off It’s not like you’ve never seen these things before Nothing too significant In the greater scheme of things Wrap it up Shrug it off

about

Sparse dub grooves, heavy desert riffs, and short bursts of angular punk. This is the sound of No Mandate. On their debut double EP, 'No Mandate / Scheme of Things', the Sydney trio flows effortlessly from reggae-tinged rhythms via psychedelic fuzz into brief explosions of irregular rock and back. The song ‘Scheme of Things’ features understated vocals in an otherwise instrumental set.

Moving freely across genres and boundaries comes naturally to the three musicians, thanks to their experience in forward-thinking bands such as Hinterlandt, SEIMS, Meniscus, Snob Club, and many more. No Mandate operates as hands-on, grass-roots, DIY trio: Jochen writes the songs; Alex records and mixes them; Simeon creates the artwork. Together they shape and form the music, bringing it to life with their dynamic and flexible interplay on stage.
