When the force starts to unwind you find you’re Linked between two minds A connection seemingly from nothing Millions of emotions on a string Moving along, stellar overdrive And into that strangeness you take a dive From chaos to cohesion you start to rain with the sound of trains All these tired islands in the sun are all Masses that bind together to become one Adrift in a sea of a constant drone Waiting for the next wave, hold the phone Points still and idle start to come alive Buzzing in uniform motion, a rhythm hive What was not there starts to come alive Hurling forward with transcendent overdrive When the force starts to unwind you find you’re Linked between two minds From chaos to cohesion you start to rain with the sound of trains
The Director 04:09
With one idea you hit the ground running or you’re gone Building from one block up to the top Cutting out the noise of the mobbing flock At times it all rushes in with a pop There’s always distractions disrupting the flow And gatekeepers who really don’t know A tangled web and it’s all for show Through night and day until you have to stop Fashioning an image of what you see Feels different from the rest in a obscure key But you know what the aim is Punching out a hole through the mundane weave Pacing like a machine until you stop, stop, stop Do you know what you want? Do you know where to start? A rough work is on the chopping block Place another block on the one below You get your footing and it starts to go Against the choir of resounding “no” You know there’s a lot of work to do But you pull it together to see it though Sometimes you falter, sometimes no clue Sometimes you break out from you thought you knew Fashioning an image of what you see Counting to the rhythm — one, two, three But you know what the aim is Planting a seed in the ruthless scree


Linked Between Two Minds is the second of two digital single releases from the 2023 album No. It contains the titular track "Linked Between Two Minds" from that album as well as several variations.

The second track is a remix that comes courtesy of Berlin-based electronic artist Oberst Panizza (Young & Cold Records), who has also played in post-punk groups Velvet Condom and List Noire.

Also included is the non-album track "The Director", which was recorded and mixed with all of the tracks from the No. release but was not selected for the final album release. The track has a slight EBM feel, but was written with the intention of having an extremely loose, almost "un-quantised" feel intentionally with lyrics on the topic of the creative process.

Closing up this release is an alternate version of "Linked Between Two Minds" envisioned by Soft Riot — the "Night Trance Version", which takes on a completely re-structured approach from arrangement, feel and sound design from the original, transposing the main motifs from that track into a more reflective and meditative mood piece.
