about

EP3, the third in a series of synth-pop EPs from Michigan-based artist Christopher Norman, makes a clear statement: he is ready to be heard. Building on the intimate nature of EP2, Christopher's new set of songs speaks of a need for connection and a pull toward something greater. On EP3 there are many contrasting pieces that come together in cleverly harmonious ways, highlighting the eclectic nature of Christopher's production style. By pitting beat machines and his trademark retro baselines against piano, viola, and choir vocals, Christopher infuses every influence he has into his material - the result being dynamic, inventive, and arresting pop music.

"Connect Me" is available now for free download.

Track Name: Connect Me
room alight with sparks
running up the wall / more static left to discharge
diffusing it quietly
i know how it feels to be
stuck living inside your head
chasing words that were never said

[chorus]
baby I can feel the voltage running through my skin
come on and tap into the current i'm generating
down through every node
my circuits overload with all this energy

heart racing / without a sound
every wall around you coming down
take a look at me / plug it in and see
how it works when you connect me


none of your transmissions getting free
you're out of time / no charge left in your battery
all of this resistance in your way
with no power you'll decay
don't you know I'm calling you all the time?
nothing but noise to hear on your line

[chorus]
Track Name: Waves
stuck in a blur
time it twists and it turns
streaming onward

I waste the day
smoke my feelings away
well it's something

you gotta have something
beats nothing at all
when your back's on the wall

wipe the ash off of my fingers
I used to be broken
but I've been awoken

pick up the pieces
retracing / at least it's some movement
it's all about movement

break out of disarray
the ghost of a song
haunts for too long in your heart
burning through

it comes in waves
time to hold on
now that it's all on you
all on you

this town's for lost souls
a beacon to beckon
the wandering

I'm wandering too
I know what to do, I'm just waiting
patiently waiting for my time to come

playing the day away
looking for new doors to open

time sinks a thousand leagues under the sea
and I'm floating alone in your ocean
awaiting the tide
Track Name: Shoreline (Interlude)
come swim with me
Track Name: Word Of Prey
[v1]
reality - it's cutting through
when I lie awake and all I see is you
still chasing illusions after all this time

you know I get so isolated in my zone
cosmic little trip getting overblown
then there's only one thing on my mind

[chorus]
I can feel you when I sleep
when I wake it goes away
what you want from me I'll be

I can hear you call to me
draw me close with your word of prey
pull me back into your dream

[v2]
every night I drift away
wishing there was some way I could stay
you know I love to toe the line

throw up your mirage - it's distracting me
what a perverse, latent enemy
but how I want to make you mine

[chorus]
Track Name: Lovisa Negga - Kärlek Eller Inbillning (Christopher Norman Remix)
Hjärtat slår lite hårdare med billigt vin
Pulsen går lite snabbare med koffein
Är det kärlek eller inbillning?
Är det kärlek eller inbillning?

När du somnar om bredvid mig
ligger jag still och väntar ut
Jag skulle säga nånting viktigt
det blev så uppenbart till slut

Och varför trodde vi på ord vi sa
en illusion som snabbt dog ut
Nu har vi bara kvar varandra
vi känner aldrig som förut

Varför blev det jag och du?

Hjärtat slår lite hårdare med billigt vin
Pulsen går lite snabbare med koffein
Är det kärlek eller inbillning?
Är det kärlek eller inbillning?

Ofta gick vi runt problemen
tänkte att de växer bort nån dag
Man går alltid skilda vägar
det var det du som sa

Hoppas och längtar efter nånting helt
något perfekt att föredra
Men jag kan aldrig glömma bort dig
våra drömmar var för bra

Varför blev det du och jag?

Hjärtat slår lite hårdare med billigt vin
Pulsen går lite snabbare med koffein
Är det kärlek eller inbillning?
Är det kärlek eller inbillning?
Hjärtat slår lite hårdare med billigt vin
Pulsen går lite snabbare med koffein
Är det kärlek eller inbillning?
Är det kärlek eller inbillning?

Hjärtat slår lite hårdare med billigt vin
Pulsen går lite snabbare med koffein
Är det kärlek eller inbillning?
Är det kärlek eller inbillning?
