The Jesus Cleaver Releases New Dark-Alt Single, “Europa”


Thursday 21st March, 2013

BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA – Brisbane’s most enduring yet underground dark alternative outfit, The Jesus Cleaver, today announced the release of a new digital single, “Europa”. The track is the second single from the follow-up album, “Life In Clouds”.

The single is the first track from part 2 of the album, with the remaining album tracks planned for progressive release over 2013 as production is completed.

“Europa” is up-tempo, synth-heavy, and yet maintains an authentic dark romantic feel. Lyrically, the song explores vast distances and intense closeness, with an anthemic energy. As a song that casts its own shadows, “Europa” has an inescapable sense of anxiety, which is acutely contrasted against its lyrical conviction.

DJ servicing is currently under way world-wide. The lyrics and full-length stream of the song are available @

For fans, a copy of the track is now available for immediate download (name your price, from USD0.99), in various formats including mp3 and lossless (FLAC, ALAC (Apple Lossless)). Proceeds go direct to the artist, and in turn are most likely to be directed at expanding a vintage synth fleet.



To far horizons
And distant shores
We’ve travelled together
My needs ignored

This temptation is timeless
It’s a version of love
A tenderness longed for
For we’re not undeserving thereof

A home to return to
With surrendered controls
I want to worship your body
Not empty our souls

I’m looking for peace here
I want your embrace
Not harvested resentment
Nor words bitter of taste

Tonight is our last now
Together like this
Drown me in your body
Breathe me your kiss

Drown me in your body
Breathe me your kiss

Drown me in your body
Breathe me your kiss
