Alive 08:52
Break it down Pick yourself up Gotta fill up your own damn cup No one's gonna do it for you, or me Got to want to change if your whole worlds gonna rearrange Take control look inside your soul You've got to take back your day It's high time to realize the whole world's been compromised You've got to wake up and fight today Find hope and keep it close When it feels like the world is going up in smoke It gets dark but deep inside I see the light alive in your eyes You have got to know You have got to realize You have got to see See it with your real eyes
2.
The Eye 06:16
I'll be your fire, I'll be your flame I'll be your fire, I'll be your flame I've seen things, beyond your comprehension Vast expanses into the unknown I've crossed into the forbidden dimension To steal the power of the sacred flame Try to fight the tides It's a long ride Just remember that the eye can see you In a distance world, the task at hand Remember that the eye can see you How could I allow harm to befall you In time you'll know the truth I'd rather pluck out my eyes Then raise a hand against you Doomsday signal pulsing from the tooth So far away from home But so close to my heart Death from above, upon this stone To tear this world apart
3.
Bits of Time 04:07
This is how we make it break down using little bits of time? Even if we could think straight We're gonna lose our minds It's a beautiful day Who knows how to fix things using little bits of time? This is how we work things out Using Rob Fray's mind You got to know it You got to show it This is how we make you get down using little bits of time Even if you could think straight You're gonna lose your mind
4.
Nectar 05:41
I hear your voice as it cuts me to the bone The sound hearkens a path towards the light Even though we are only strangers to the night I find comfort in knowing I'm not alone I've never felt the warmth of your gaze before We're just two new souls for each other to explore And if you take my hand we'll discover a whole new world I can tell you've never felt this before As we feel a new emotion Feel a new emotion Locked in time, together we'll remain Souls entwined trying to level the plane We can't ignore the signs seen here The past and future presently hold us dear You're sweet like nectar and it gets me through the day I don't wish this feeling to go away And if you take my hand we discover a whole new world And I can tell that we've never felt this before

Retinal 06:57

Porpoise 04:11
Get on your space ship today Let Solar Circuit take you far from the Milky Way You minds surface like a porpoise to see The whole universe was made for you and me Galaxies light years away Nebulas and supernovas greet us every day Though there in danger in the dark With space and time bent to our design we can always find a way And I'll never be alone Cause I can dance with my shadow And I'll never be alone I can do this on my own For a while I've been trying to get away Arbitrary line marks on the wall The darkness of space is creeping up on my soul Light speed to planets far away I think of home every single day Getting homesick losing track of time It gets old just flying around with no reason or rhyme I forget when this all began Feels like this journey is never gonna end And now I'm alone Been out danced by my own shadow And now I'm alone I can't do this on my own For a while I've been driving me insane
7.
Beach Grass 03:36
All alone, you look up to the starts Cause you're never going back, never going back again As time flies, and seasons go by Slow down, let the sun in Take your time Don't move too fast Ease your mind Catch your breath All you know is what you've been shown But you gotta find, gotta find your own way It's a tough climb, but you're doing fine Every dawn draws in a new day
8.
Convicted 04:28
Boiling oil spells trouble And oh, that cold wind blows Please tell my lover that I won't be coming home Deter her from the gallows as my head rolls One hundred miles of desert sand and you'd never know I've veiled the death on my hands To you they're white as slow They've crossed the line twice to many To let the record show With the dogs barking at my heels Soon it's time to go The trail I blaze you'll never catch me You best not try The things I've done, the things I've seen Man it'd make you want to cry Don't try to plead with me my friend Because your life's a lie I've lived my life on the edge It's how I've gotten by
9.
Colors 05:07
The black hole in your heart electrifies The colors of your eyes ignite I could tell once it'd be too much and you're not ready Trust in me If I tell twice it's a steep price and you can't afford to pay I feel the reeling in your soul, just so you know it's hard to let go It's hard to let go, It's hard to let go The swirl of colors in my head, turn the darkest shade of red When you can't sleep don't even talk about it It'd be too hard if you could Stuck there carrying the weight of the world You want to give it up and you should You can shine my light in the dark Face North with no fear Shine my light in the dark Face North with no fear
10.
You're the moon in the night I'm the sun that fills the sky with light All that stands between us is the world You can't see but it's true I chase in the morn to get next to you So why do you always run away? I'll be waiting there for you The push and the pull of the tides Day turns again to night I start to think that I'll never see you As I fall you rise, as I fall you ruse How am I ever supposed to see your face? Then it turns twilight For a moment you're bathed in my life You're equal in beauty I've never known Never known...

about

Solar Circuit presents their debut full length studio album 'One Around The Sun'. Following another year under their belt, 'One Around the Sun' captures the development of this jamtronic trance fusion groups sound, drive, and passion for the collaboration they have built and seek to share with the world.

With the release of 'Levitate EP' in 2016, this motivated and eager up-and-coming Philly act sought to get their feet off the ground and their sounds to the world. Now, pulling out the tracks that were saved in the repository, having been heard only at live performances, these original tracks now come to life as studio cuts, available for purchase and streaming on all major music outlets.

The sound of 'One Around The Sun' is the summation of the eclectic mix that Solar Circuit has developed into their own. Pulling from a wide variety of influences, genres, and skill sets, these four dedicated musicians and friends are excited to continue to dive deeper into the unique blend of sounds they have developed. With the pure intentions of hoping to reach and speak to their audience and to provide an escape from this troubled world, we invite you to step into the Solar Circuit and see what is in store for this trip around the sun, as well many more to come...

Sacred Flame
*Tracks 2, 8, 9, and 10
This 9 part series was originally composed, produced, and released in 2013 by TR (Solar Circuit bassist and vocalist, Taylor Jamison). 'Sacred Flame', the space rock opera, has come to life in a new form; reworked and remixed for a live setting within the catalog of Solar Circuit. Installations #s 2, 4, 5, and 8 are present on 'One Around The Sun', and further segments will continue to be revealed throughout the upcoming years as Solar Circuit, to reveal the remaining pieces of this interstellar tale.
