This could be the anthem for storming Area 51

“The Time Has Come” is a bouncy yet dark track that is instantly reminiscent of acts like a combination of Muse’s “Uprising” and Marvin the Martian. This brooding track also is comparable to a darker “Major Tom”. Combining all these elements of pop culture allows Mat Creedon to come up with a new recipe that is familiar but not too familiar which is what I think makes this song that is more left of center easier to comprehend to new listeners. Towards the end of the track the harmonic qualities turn major as the lyrics sing of “the day is here, the time has come”. This could be the anthem for storming Area 51, check it out below!

This song is for fans of Air, Beck, The Flaming Lips and Tame Impala.

/Mat Creedon on “The Time Has Come”

“I wrote this tune back in 1999 while living at my parents’ house. At the time, I was an unemployed songwriter struggling to pay rent, so I had no money but plenty of time on my hands. I also had to contend with my brother, who was suffering from schizophrenia, so most of the time, I locked myself in my room and wrote music from 9 am to Midnight.”

“I launched into what is now the verse, and this beautiful melody just came to me from out of nowhere. Every note just fell into place, like the whole thing was pre-written. I spent the next hour trying to capture this rabbit a melody before it escaped down the hole of my subconscious. It was easily one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had, period.”

“Later that year I put together a band which unfortunately failed to get off the ground, so I decided to release an EP with my friend Evan Pierce. I spent an entire year locked away in my bedroom recording an EP titled ‘Audio Fields’ and released it under the name of ‘Periscope,’ on my label ‘Nincompoop Records.’”

“THE TIME HAS COME” LYRICS

All Stations On

All Stations On

Commence the countdown

Engines On

The time is here

The time has come

Ignite the engines

Let them run

Reaching for the sky

Knew the risk was high

Now its begun

Voices in my head

Say Ill be dead

Before it’s won

The day is here

The time has come

All engines on

All engines on

Commence the countdown

Clear the run

The time is here

The time has come

Cast your eyes

Towards the sun

Reaching for the sky

Knew the risk was high

Now its begun

Voices in my head

Say Ill be dead

Before it’s won

They say I missed that boat

Should’ve hung my coat

Cause it cant be done

The day is here

The time has come

Set the controls

Towards the sun
