1: an intense feeling of deep affection
"Real Angels Sing" is yet another musical effort by Cody England to portray love. Not the traditional romantic sort, but an odd offshoot of the platonic variety. It's a story of finding solace in a close friend; someone experiencing the same heartaches, and seems idyllic, but because of the situation is unachievable in a romantic way.
The EP Starts with an instrumental tribute to the primary instrument used in it's creation, the GEM H-400 home organ, and then the the relevance begins. Although "Real Angels Sing" is similar to "The Monotony Monopoly", the lyrics are written in a much different way. "The Monotony Monopoly" was written to the listener as a story of a relationship, much unlike "Real Angels Sing", which is written directly to a third party (the fore-mentioned friend). Each of the last four songs is a confession and/or explanation of feelings a lot of which are too difficult to bring up in an average conversation.
"House in the Trees" is an upbeat and abstract description of ideals shared.
"Real Angels Sing" is admission of admiration and adoration.
"Our Solution" is a melancholy statement pointing out shared disappointments, along with a vague suggestion for a potential remedy.
Last but certainly not least is "Someday" which is a summary of all the subjects discussed, coupled with the optimistic thought that future will be worth todays suffering.
The lyrics and subject aren't the only things that set "Real Angels Sing" apart from "The Monotony Monopoly". It's also compositionally and sonically more complex, featuring greater attention to detail and experimentation with textures.
A set of six hodgepodge photo-collages in orange and pink were created to accompany the realease. They are included as a PDF.
