* * These tracks will be remixed and remastered for the High Tea album that will be released on 11 July 2014 * *

The Britannicas are 21st century men and pioneers of trans-continental recording; using modern technology to deliver old school, classic pop music.

Herb Eimerman (solo, Nerk Twins - USA), Magnus Karlsson (happydeadmen, the Charade - SWEDEN) and Joe Algeri (Jack & the Beanstalk, the JAC – AUSTRALIA) are separated by thousands of miles of ocean but they can still harmonise in the auto-tune-free glory days of yesteryear.

Track Name: Got A Hold On Me
______________________________________________

yeah how things look and how they sound
and how to change what's allowed
the first words that were spoken in some time
out on a limb at the top of the tree
why didn't you pick me
you held back knowing everything

something's got a hold on me
yeah something's got a hold on me

what are you goin' to do with me
i wouldn't take back anything
and the less you say the clearer things become
at the surface at the boiling point
the listener didn't disappoint
and i wouldn't take back anything

something's got a hold on me
yeah something's got a hold on me

you sat right down to cross your legs
and said don't lose track of the simple things
yeah simple things

what are you goin' to do with me
i wouldn't take back anything
and the less you say the clearer things become
out on a limb at the top of the tree
why didn't you pick me
you held back knowing everything

something's got a hold on me
yeah something's got a hold on me
got a hold on me
Track Name: Will Someone Cover Your Fall
______________________________________________

oh please baby don't drink tonight
i’m tired of this circus and I don’t want to fight
your sister’s on the phone with a broken heart
the world is a mess, I don’t know where to start

it's a hard thing being optimistic in a world so cruel
waiting to grow up and finish school
and do what you wanna do and go where you wanna go

just be patient and the tide will turn
remember your childhood as a lesson learned
teach your children to be proud and sound
respect yourself keep your feet on the ground

it's a hard thing predicting our future when we're cool and young
then remember what we did that was wrong
going through therapy deciding who's advice you should take
will Someone cover your fall?

it's a hard thing being optimistic in a world so cruel
waiting to grow up and finish school
and do what you wanna do and go where you wanna go

will someone cover your fall
Track Name: Too Far Gone
______________________________________________

if I returned to France
would I remember what to say
and would you let me in
and what you pretend that it was nothing

so I never returned your calls
i wrote you letters that said nothing at all
i didn't know how to feel
i didn't know what was real

has it been too long
too far gone
if I did you wrong
what would you say
would you turn away
has your heart moved on

was it all about the flesh
when you hear my name do you detest
or do you blush and smile
like a taste of cheap old wine

maybe that day will come
we might be wiser but not so young
will I know how to feel
will I know if it was real

has it been too long
too far gone
if I did you wrong
what would you say
would you turn away
has your heart moved on
