Recorded in the spare room throughout most of 2014. Chief cheerleaders were the wife, the kids, the corpo and grandmaster Dubh.

The Daily Mirror called it "stunning...a perfect slice of electro indie pop"

The Guardian put SC somewhere between Hot Chip and Brian May

The Thin Air said "With ridiculously infectious melodies, Of Montreal-esque harmonies and Postal Service-like beats melding very nicely across a collection of tracks, the album evokes, at different points, the likes of The Books, Pinback and Metronomy."

UCC983fm said Screaming Parent is 'finding common ground between beach boys and krautrock, great stuff"

And BBC Across the Line said it was sexy! The caveat being they also said the only sexy rival in Ireland is Brian Kennedy.

Track Name: The completist
down the back at the crates at the end
was a first edish - you know the clear one?
in the wrong sleeve, down in the wrong section
and how did you get my name wrong?
Track Name: The stand off
must try harder
Track Name: The enemies in
overjoyed with all this noise
Track Name: The gates of hell
you were outbound, you could arrive at anytime
if i closed my eyes
you were undercover too
oh my, you were the last thing left for us to believe in
Track Name: The seasons
we're fallin' in and following
Track Name: The alien thing
i wrote every song i could
i want you to listen again and again
Track Name: The damn
i'm the one loading the guns in peacetime
and i'm the one that's meant to have your back
Track Name: The design of awful things (I'm through with numbers)
i designed this awful thing
and now i'm through with numbers
Track Name: The question at the end of it
all balance reset by this indecision
Track Name: The descent
i lay down as towns, they rose around me
i was yours on the ground
