about

Heightened Senses digs deeper into the more positive side of The Cathode Ray, previously hinted at on earlier singles such as “Mind” and “This Force Of Nature”.
Simultaneously a simple ode to the joy of life and a love song, chief songwriter Jeremy Thoms sings of “living in the here and now” and how “this energy inside” gives him “heightened senses, intensified and true, magnified for you”, all set to an insanely catchy slice of skewed perfect pop which The Cathode Ray do so well.
Think Portugal The Man meets The Strokes via Pharrell and OutKast.

lyrics

HEIGHTENED SENSES

I’M PROMISING TO MAKE A VOW
OF LIVING IN THE HERE AND NOW
AS LONG AS TIME ALLOWS
I’LL NEVER EVER GIVE IT UP
NO NO NO
I CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH

ALL THIS ENERGY INSIDE
IS SOMETHING I CAN’T HIDE
NO MATTER HOW I TRY

THERE’S NO PRETENCES
OR SECOND GUESSES
JUST HEIGHTENED SENSES
INTENSIFIED AND TRUE
MAGNIFIED FOR YOU
GIVE ME HEIGHTENED SENSES

I’M PROMISING TO KEEP IT REAL
AND TELLING YOU HOW I FEEL
WITH NOTHING HIDDEN TO REVEAL
I’LL NEVER EVER SAY GOODBYE
WHY OH WHY
WOULD I TELL A LIE?

THERE’S NO LOOKING BACK
MUCH FURTHER DOWN THE TRACK
STILL RUNNING WITH THE PACK
