about

Masonique Portland, Oregon

Masonique is music with the future in mind, unhinged from rock ’n’ roll nostalgia. The sound of NeuPop, fusing the hypnotic explorations of krautrock with the synthetic melodies of synthpop and the seductive swagger of glam.

Like a Scorsese directed prize fight between the heady pomp of Roxy Music and the savage dub of PiL, with Gary Numan as the announcer and John Peel as the referee.

Track Name: 16xNO
no ringing bell to tether you
no siren’s call to feather you
no time left to weather you

wake up, wake up, wake up!

no sacred shrieks to shear you down
no secret scorn to salt that frown
no shiny shells to shatter the ground

wake up, wake up, wake up!

no silver tongue to bellow you
no slight of hand to settle you
no magic means to mellow you

wake up, wake up, wake up!

no more promises that whither like skin
no more vows that wrinkle in the wind
no more contracts written in sin

wake up, wake up, wake up!

poppy fields and candied lies
spiral smiles with winking eyes
powdered wigs and alibis
lavish praise will hypnotize

no ringing bell
no siren’s call
no time left
no time at all
Track Name: Strays
here we stand once again
the silence roaring in our heads
a thousands roads
yet no beds
our voices echoed
by the shadows that we lead

we are strays
till the end of our days
but even strays can stay together
free from our cage
to brave the stage
'cause even strays can stay together

sheltered by the sky
we see eye to eye
our minds in flight
we embrace the night

our strings are cut
all tolls are paid
every key is lost
open roads ahead

we are strays
till the end of our days
but even strays can stay together
free from our cage
to brave the stage
'cause even strays can stay together

we see it
we feel it
Track Name: Status Erratus
pushing towards the light
the world will set us right
towards the stage light
towards the star light
no more stage fright no
not on this night no
Track Name: Pomp le Bomp
you know the score
yet you want some more
here comes desire
with your heart on fire
