My Own Money – Dark As A Dungeon

Between day and night: "Dark As A Dungeon" mixes cheeky beats with dark lyrics.

My Own Money - Dark As A DungeonThe latest coup by "My Own Money" from Canada, the song "Dark As A Dungeon", is a fas­cin­at­ing com­bin­a­tion of synth and elec­tro pop that is both ener­get­ic and pro­voc­at­ive. The track comes from the EP "Disco Asbestos" and impresses with its catchy dark bass beat, which sets the music­al theme right from the start.

When the vocals kick in, you are inev­it­ably reminded of "Ladytron", while the bright syn­thes­iser sounds in the chor­us per­fectly com­ple­ment and bright­en up the min­im­al­ist bass beat. This mix­ture of sounds is also remin­is­cent of "Miss FD", whereby "Dark As A Dungeon" sur­prises with a bridge that fur­ther increases the ten­sion with a hint of 80s new beat.

I thought you were my pur­pose in life
but you're just a distraction
I gave you all my days and my nights
and you gave me destruction
Lyrics of "Dark As A Dungeon" by "My Own Money"

Lyrically, the song offers a pro­found exam­in­a­tion of decep­tion and dis­ap­point­ment in inter­per­son­al rela­tion­ships. Lines like "I thought you were my pur­pose in life but you're just a dis­trac­tion" illus­trate the pain­ful real­isa­tion that not everything that shines really does bring light.

I've listened to the older songs on the My Own Money Bandcamp chan­nel and I have to hon­estly admit that these quite commercial/indie rock/pop songs aren't my cup of tea. The song "Dark As A Dungeon" is a com­pletely dif­fer­ent cal­ibre and I hope that the band con­tin­ues to devel­op in a more elec­tron­ic dir­ec­tion, even if this is a selfish wish.

Lyrics of "My Own Money – Dark As A Dungeon"

I thought you were my pur­pose in life
but you're just a distraction
I gave you all my days and my nights
and you gave me destruction

I thought you'd always be mine
but you're a missed connection
I thought you were my giver of light
but you're as dark as a dungeon
Dark as a dungeon
Dark as a dungeon
Dark as a dungeon

I hung around i was the fool
That couldn't see the fault in you
Although the warn­ing signs were there
Drew me back into your darkness

It's cool – I'm your fool
Be kind – don't take my light

I thought you were my pur­pose in life
but you're just a distraction
I gave you all my days and my nights
and you gave me destruction

I thought you'd always be mine
but you're a missed connection
I thought you were my giver of light
but you're as dark as a dungeon
Dark as a dungeon
Dark as a dungeon
Dark as a dungeon

I thought of love as someone you
some­thing hid­den some­thing true
secret spaces in between
the dis­tances of dreams unseen

it's cool I'm your fool
be kind don't take my light

I thought you were my pur­pose in life
but you're just a distraction
I gave you all my days and my nights
and you gave me destruction

I thought you'd always be mine
but you're a missed connection
I thought you were my giver of light
but you're as dark as a dungeon
Dark as a dungeon
Dark as a dungeon
Dark as a dungeon
