Song Lyrics

You Turn Me Inside Outside In

(VERSE1)
YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE IN
YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE IN

CHEMICAL COLLISION
MY SOULS ON A MISSION
THIS PHYSICAL DESIRE
CAN FEEL LIKE A PRISON
HEARTS ON FIRE
WALKING ON A WIRE

AM I IN LOVE OR IS THIS JUST ADDICTION

AND YOU SPIN ME AROUND UPSIDE DOWN
YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE
YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE
YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE IN

(VERSE 2)
YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE IN
YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE IN

ALL THESE VISIONS
DON’T NEED FORGIVEN
JUST MOTHER NATURES
MAGNETIC PRECISION
PULLING ME CLOSER
ON A ROLLER COASTER

AM I IN LOVE OR IS THIS JUST ADDICTION

AND YOU SPIN ME AROUND UPSIDE DOWN
YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE
YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE
YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE IN

SOLO
YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE
YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE
YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE IN
(VERSE 3)

YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE IN
YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE IN

THIS TIME I KNOW
ITS GOING TO BE FOREVER
ETERNALLY YOURS
SO LETS GET TOGETHER
INSIDE OF ME
ITS FLOWING LIKE A RIVER
LOVES LIKE A BULLET
I NEED TO DELIVER

AND YOU SPIN ME AROUND UP SIDE DOWN

YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE
YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE
YOU TURN ME INSIDE OUTSIDE IN

INSIDE OUTSIDE IN ( repeated)

Breathe You In (A Love Song) 

This song was written for the Spatial Unity album Knock Me off My Feet. I will be re recording a new version of this soon.

Breathe You In:

Your soft and dreaming eyes, remind me of heaven
Your sweet and gentle smile, takes me to paradise
And I’ll always know, that you will be
Inside my heart and my soul
And when I touched you, I melted like ice
Your breathe warms that chill in my heart

And I’ll breathe you in – And I’ll breathe , breathe you in

Your soft and gentle kiss, I will remember
Those sweet and tender words, I will surrender
And I’ll always know , that you will be
Inside my heart and my soul
And when I touched you, I melted like ice
Your breathe warms that chill in my heart

And I’ll breathe you in And I’ll breathe , breathe you in

A Question from musician Andy Murray 

Ok so I have a question dear friends !
I am really curious about how people relate to us musicians and artists. It is harder than ever to sell music in this industry for lots of reasons..
And I see sites like the one I joined below appearing all the time as ways for us musicians and artists to continue to be full time at our craft.

So in relation the link here .I am looking for feedback.
If you gave me a $1 a month or whatever amount you felt like . What would you expect in return?
Bearing in mind an album costs about £10 to buy..
If instead of getting a one off album your were to get continuous music every week or month.. What would you expect from an artist if you were paying £1 a month?
Would you in fact pay £1 a month or more? - Is it a good idea? - Is it too much hassle to even look at these sites?

If you check out the site I am on (link) . Give me your honest feedback on things I could have on it etc..
I intend being extremely creative this year. In fact I am making videos of new songs and I will be posting them on my FB and generally using FB to put myself out there as the musician and song writer that I aspire to be .

I realised recently that I hide that part of myself too much..
So for any of you guys who do actually like my music and my guitar playing and even my dumb cheesy sense of humour then I am about to be very proactive and creative!

Something happened recently and I don’t feel scared to share any more.. Why was I ever scared you may ask? Ah well that is a tale I will share soon!
Thanks for your help and support.. here is the web site ..
PLEASE DONT JUST LIKE .. I value your comments !

Here is a nicely produced video of footage filmed from a YQ2 Quad-copter and T-copter; which features Dream Frequency (instrumental) from Spatial Unity. Sit back, relax and enjoy.


An Interview with Andy and Andy 

An interview with the band members to support the release of their debut album – Knock Me Off My Feet.

Andy Pearce and Andy Murray
1. Is Spatial Unity a band or more of an inventive musical project? Tell us who’s involved and about your history and why you do it?

Andy P: The band was originally put together as a project where three artists could be free to artistically produce their own music together. I suppose you could have referred to it as a rally call! To expand, most of our previous musical careers involved doing what other people want; whereas Spatial Unity is all about music-freedom and creating what we want. The exciting thing about this project is that it is evolving all the time.

2. Who or what are your influences? 

Andy M: As a guitar player I love all the virtuoso players such as Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Robben Ford , Eric Johnson to name but a few. Early influences were Thin Lizzy, Van Halen, Rush and Journey. I love Neil Finn as a song writer. Crowded House were and are a big influence on me a s a song writer

Andy P: A cliché, however I love anything that is funky or with a great groove, dreamy and makes you feel good. I adore bands like Zero 7, The Cinematic Orchestra and Fila Brazillia etc, although these artists use a lot of samples in their work which can be overdone. Alternatively, I enjoy the buzz we are creating with Spatial Unity and creating great sounds but with a more natural live feel to it.

3. What modern artists do you like? 

Andy M: Muse, The Killers, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, KT Tunstall

Andy P: Zero 7, Lemon Jelly, The Cinematic Orchestra, Carl Craig, Fila Brazillia, Groove Amada, Saint Germaine, Telepopmusik, Ordinary Boys, The Bravery, Kevin Shields (although I wouldn’t call Kevin modern now).

4. Where did the name come from what does it mean? 

Andy P: The band has many close friends in different parts of the world. The name was inspired from the idea that technology can bring people together; and although we are geographically divided we are still close; thus spatial (divided) unity (together). Besides, all of the other cheesy names were taken.

5. What inspires you to write your music/lyrics? 

Andy M: Life experiences, sometimes just having a few chords that sound good. I like the texture of words and sometimes don’t even focus on their meaning. I like to inspire others to. I also like to use a humorous twist on occasion.

Andy P: Hey I am a percussionist. I start with a good groove and then build harmonic and melodic phrases around it. I find lyrics too personal and struggle with this. I am better when collaborating with others, therefore helping them with ideas etc. Andy M on the other hand is an incredible lyricist. No I am not crying I just have a little dust in my eye.

6. Name your all time fave track by another band/artist? 

Andy M: Don’t Dream Its Over, by Crowded House

Andy P: Oh Bu**er that’s like been asked to tell a joke on the spot. Hmmm can I come back to this question?

7. What are your ambitions for your music? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 

Andy M: I love the theatrical side of things and would love to put shows on that are visually inspiring as well as musically…Pink Floyd kind of thing I guess. Andy P: First and foremost we want the world to hear and enjoy our music. We want to continue to create great songs our way and share it with everyone. Success means the ability to do for a living what you truly love to do; for me this would involve creating and producing music all day long, whether it be our own material or a project collaboration. Moreover, working with Andy M is great fun – like two school boys playing Xbox all day. As a musician/producer, I have been told that I have a natural gift and can take something that is rarely good and make it sound incredible. Eventually I would like to use industry learned skills to continue working with Andy M and company and also with other wonderful and talented upcoming acts. I would like us to land a big block buster movie; that would be cool!

8. How would you describe your music and what genre do you think it fits into?

Andy P: We have many influences; I would brand our music as a fusion of Pop Indie-Rock with also Electronica thrown in. As mentioned, our music is very much enriched by contemporary and electronic sounds but we have a deliberate natural and live feel to it which is achieved by Andy Murray’s amazing guitar work, and also by the use of live drums / percussion and bass. No samples are used (yet).

9. Where was your new single recorded and who was producing?

Andy P: The new single Knock Me Off My Feet was recorded in Scotland at Greenside Studio. The song was self produced by myself and Andy Murray. This is a successful partnership as it creates a good medium for the style of music. This song was a fascinating project and it was intriguing to witness how the song progressed and developed its character.

10. Who are the members of Spatial Unity and what do they play? 

Andy Murray: Electric/Acoustic Guitar and lead vox. Andy Pearce: Drums / Percussion and Keys – backing vox Kevin Wiles: Funky Bass – backing vox

11. We think music and food has combined in a big way with celebrity rock and pop stars now appearing and cooking on TV food shows. Can you give us your favourite recipe?

Andy P: Hey, I thought this was a rock n roll interview? Where are all the questions about trashing hotel rooms? LOL – Oh well, while I am at it, I love cooking and eating omelettes. Pre-heat Extra Virgin Olive Oil, mix three eggs with a dash of milk and whisk. Fry Mushrooms, peppers, then add the eggs. Use ground-pepper and oregano then grate some cheese on top. Bonisimo! Other than that, you can’t beat a good old bbq!

Andy M: Rice pasta. Cook the pasta for 4 minutes, add pesto sauce, sprinkle of pepper, and some grated cheese on top with pine nuts. It approx takes 10 minutes and it’s delicious.

12. Your music has a very up to date and modern feel while still sounding organic and classic at times…What sort of software/equipment are you using to create your music? 

Andy P: The early stuff (recorded in Denmark) was in a typical high-profile stereotype recording studio environment with the band and session musicians recording together at once. This gives it its distinctive live indie rock feel. The new material, including the new single “Knock Me Off My Feet” was recorded and produced in Greenside Studio Scotland using a combination of analogue outboard mixers and other gear combined with high-tech computerised digital recording equipment. The approach was to use natural acoustic drums, layered with classic electro drums sounds such as 808 and 909 emulators (Dreams Come True), and combined with real bass, and acoustic and electric guitar. Synth sounds were also computerized. As for that classic signature Hammond sound; that is a secret!

ALBUM REVIEW – Knock Me Off My Feet

A range of styles bursts from this band, from experimental electro-pop/rock dance tunes to acoustic love ballads, and a guitarist that shreds. The vocals create a pop foundation for the entire album to construct a tapestry of varying styles around them. In the vein of Bell X1, and for fans of Snow Patrol and Coldplay.

Track 1. “Knock Me Off My Feet” Definitely some 80s pop new wave influence here, in a new refreshing package. The synth/guitar riff is as catchy as the chorus, and if that doesn’t get you moving, surely you’ll be singing along.

Track 3. “Dream Frequency” Sounding primarily euro-dance influenced, samples explain the meaning behind the title in a narrative style, almost a motivational speaker but more so a theorist. And that theory parallels the experiment behind the thesis of this band. Bouncing delays make this an experience that takes advantage of the oft-overlooked stereo mix. The album also includes a more club-friendly instrumental version that drops most the spoken word samples.

Track 6. “It’s Not Love” Heavy back-beat powers this funky upbeat song about a somewhat comparatively dark subject matter than most of the album’s themes. Beautiful vocal harmonies, and rocking rotary organ accompaniment.

FIBERGLASS AND MEGAPIXELS featuring DREAM FREQUENCY 

Spatial Unity’s track DREAM FREQUENCY was selected as part of the sound track for the new feature movie FIBERGLASS AND MEGAPIXELS , by Sandy Beach Productions.

Listen to track

Swarms of Photographers arrive in Hawaii every winter to focus there cameras on the best surfers in the world as they push the limits of wave riding. FIBERGLASS AND MEGAPIXELS shines the light on Hawaii’s north shore winter surfing scene and exposes the true beauty within the over crowded image gathering free for all.

The surfing industry relies on these inspiring pictures from Hawaii to sell the surfing image to the masses. But before that surfing image can capture the attention of the purchasing public it first must be captured in the camera. FIBERGLASS AND MEGAPIXELS focuses on a classic group of professional surfers, photographers and cinematographers who share their perspective on what it takes and what it means to get that epic shot and live a life completly based around surfing.

Andy Pearce Joins The LJP 

 As well as the new recording project at Spatial Unity, Andy Pearce has been invited to play percussion for Scottish super funk band, The Leonard Jones Potential (LPJ). Andy is very excited with this opportunity, “finding good funk musicians to play along with is extremely challenging – LJP will help me liberate my percussion playing. I’m delighted“ .

Why not check out some of LJP’s music within their website www.theljp.com .

Electro Rock Surf! 

 It’s been quite a fun couple of weeks, in the studio. It is hard to find time but when we do it is fulfilling. Previously we would walk in with the strategy of having a song lyrics prepares etc and then record the foundation and build it up. However this time around we all take it in turns to come up with a riff, groove, idea etc and we record the foundation of the song in the one night.

Working to this “fun” type of pressure is a great exercise as our goal is to leave the night with a useful recording that can be built on. Only then do we look at the arrangements and then possible vocals lyrics etc.

The last session was fun as I started with a favourite James Brown style drum riff (that’s all). Then Caroline came up with as sweet bass riff for it and then Andy M did his usual magic. The result was our favourite track so far.

It is funny when you get different musicians from various genres and when brought together you get an amazing fusion. Just by chance, we are creating this contemporary electro rock surf sound. Very funky, slick and percussive; I can’t wait to get it out to the public domain.

Samples of new music will be emailed to our guest list when available.  Take care and God Bless. 

CD now £5.00 

We are down to our last box of CDs. This is a limited edition and we wont be pressing any more - therefore we have dropped it down to half price £5 as we are working on new stuff.

iTunes Going DRM Free: What does it mean for you? 

Jake Smith is a TuneCore customer support representative and editor of the TuneCore Newsletter
http://blog.tunecore.com/2009/03/itunes-going-drm-free-what-does-it-mean-for-you.html

After 6 years, iTunes has announced that they will begin selling their entire catalog without DRM protection. This raises a number of questions, and it is important to start discussing now what these changes could mean for all of us in the music industry.

DRM, or "Digital Rights Management", is proprietary code encoded in certain types of files to control where and how they can be used. If you've ever purchased a song on iTunes before and tried to play it on a different computer, a message will come up saying that the computer is not authorized to play the file. iTunes currently allows 5 computers to be authorized for any one iTunes account. DRM protection reaches much further than just iTunes and digital music. Movies, computer software, and video games often incorporate some types of digital rights protection. For example, DRM stops (or attempts to stop) you from ripping DVD movies to you computer or by requiring you to enter a serial number before using a new program you've installed.

From the stand point of the music consumer, there is really no downside to iTunes removing DRM protection. In addition to being able to move music more freely from computer to computer, music purchased in the iTunes store will no longer be limited to the iTunes library or iPods. Files will be compatible with Windows Media Player, non-Apple based MP3 players, video game consoles and more. From the label/artist stand point, the loss of DRM may seem good or bad depending on your personal philosophy. Does it help your career in the long run by making it easier for fans to share, or is it simply less money coming to you for your hard work?

Realizing that the decision to drop DRM protection would be a controversial decision, and in an effort keep ahead of the rapidly growing Amazon store, iTunes announced they would sweeten the deal for labels by finally allowing labels to set price tiers for individual tracks. We are waiting on iTunes to give us more specific information about this and we will make the details known as we receive them.

If you're looking for a more in depth look at these changes, I'd recommend this article from the staff of Macworld (http://www.macworld.com/article/138000/2009/01/drm_faq.html). Some highlights include:

iTunes DRM free files vs. Amazon MP3, which has always been DRM Free
What happens to music purchased before the DRM change?
Will the change affect TV Shows and Movies?
Reports say that this change will be taking place by June. What do you think about this? Was the DRM drop inevitable or is iTunes biting the hand that feeds it? Let us know your thoughts.

Sunset Connect Announces Its First New Signing 

Sunset Connect Announces Its First New Signing at the Digital Record Label with the Signing of Spatial Unity

New York, NY, March 17, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Spatial Unity from the United Kingdom becomes the first Sunset Connect signing at the label. Spatial Unity’s forthcoming album is set up for release early this May (2009) and will be available at every major online digital download retail outlet in the world. The “Knock Me Off My feet” physical CD to be released by the pop act will also be made available at Amazon, Target and at the Sunset Music Store for sale to consumers all over the world.

Sunset Connect begins to set up its first new release with the Spatial Unity CD with a brand new video for the first single, “Dreams Come True” to be worked at FUSE, MTV and the music video will be able to view at all the major the online video outlets like You Tube and Music.com. The first single and a few of the songs off the “Knock Me Off My Feet” CD will be serviced through DMDS, a radio promotion company that works music to top stations tracked by BDS / Nielsen, R&R and all of this done electronically at Sunset. CD reviews for press outlets are also being worked electronically without any physical product through the Billboard Media Wire, Mi2n, New Music Weekly, PR.com and with iContact where Sunset uses its own media contact list. And, these songs from the debut CD were submitted to the Music Network, Rumblefish, Pump Audio and many licensing companies for requests that came in this week for the need of new pop songs.

Sunset Connect is Don Lichterman’s digital only record label at Sunset Records. “We have gone through a restructuring at the company in the last half year,” says Lichterman. “This is the first time since I started Sunset where I feel that we have total control to carry out my vision in the digital division.” The Sunset label head also transferred some of its signed artists at the label group, to the Sunset Connect label. “Honestly, this is basically day one in my eyes and this is the first act we are working through my system at Sunset Connect. And, yes, we have a great basis at Sunset Connect. We have to, however, begin to let things speak for itself so to speak, and that will take generating some hits over the next few years through a system like we have at Sunset Connect. Labels like Sunset Connect must actually break new music into the greater marketplace by working music this exact way for this to be a viable type of record label,” says Lichterman about his first releases at Sunset Connect.
