VAGABOND | Sweat (Until the Morning)

LYRICS:

Late at night I come around
You give smiles and we get down
I have longed to be you lover
And you know it
I never knew what I was in for

I belong to you tonight
The world is not around
You picked up for love
Oh don't roll me too tight
It goes smooth with the Shiraz

Sweat until the morning
But you know I'll take off
Later in the day
Leave your skin so soft
Sweat until the morning
Sticking by my word
Swearing I won't ever come back
Unless you ask me, babe

All the candles burning slow at night
You come closer what a sight
You don't say my name
Keeping silent you take off with me
Leaving earth so quietly
I am yours to tame

Anytime you want to come closer, star
Every time you breathe, I breathe with you
I can bring myself to where you are
Yes I said I'm in
All the

Sweat until the morning
But you know I'll take off
Later in the day
Leave your skin so soft
Sweat until the morning
Sticking by my word
Swearing I won't ever come back
Unless you ask me, babe

Away from the distant light
We dance for starry skies
We wait 'til we hear the morning
And that is when we fly

Sweat until the morning
But you know I'll take off
Later in the day
Leave your skin so soft
Sweat until the morning
Sticking by my word
Swearing I won't ever come back
Unless you ask me, babe

REVIEWS
x Vagabond may be trying to establish themselves as "an exciting live act", but we found this Xenomania collaboration more than a little boring. But if three minutes of synth-tinged rock is your thing, you might like it. 2/5 New Magazine

x Produced by Brian Higgins, the tracks flit between earthy, soulful pop and synth-tinged rock. It's got an extremely smooth vibe, courtesy of the slick beats, soulful synths and husky yet commanding vocals of its charismatic lead singer. It's tailor-made for kicking back and nodding along with over the warm summer months and possesses a genuinely feel-good quality that should help to get them noticed. 4/5 IndieLondon

x Producers Xenomania are supposed to be the guiding hand of cool when it comes to such matters, so why are they responsible for the rebirth of, basically, Lighthouse Family? Metro

x In an unusually leaden-footed move, Xenomania create their own boyband, but give them a queasy attempt at a rock ballad. As bad as Another Level. Hmm. 4/10 Digital Spy

x (...) from looking at the list of remixes they have also made quite an impression in the right circles as far as dance and hip-hop goes as well.
It's no great surprise with such a unique sounding vocalist, his throaty blues vocal is far removed from one so young and is a real selling point on the fairly middle of the road Sweat (Until The Morning). 3/5 The Beat Surrender

x Polarising isn't the word. Some seem to think newcomers Vagabond could be the biggest band in the world. Others - the sensible ones - won't go within a million miles of this over-produced, blue-eyed soul mess. Nasty. Wrexham Chronicle

x Vagabond are hyped as mid-market, soulful, sexy pop – so they could be very big indeed. This single slots somewhere between The Lighthouse Family and Simply Red, but with seamier lyrics, as the title suggests. (...)
But despite the slightly sordid lyrics, Sweat (Until The Morning) will still be too saccharine for many listeners, and if your CD collection doesn't feature a lot of Sunday newspaper freebies, you should probably give Vagabond a miss. The Citizen

x We were totally taken by this track from UK five piece Vagabond from the very moment it began, and now after further investigation, we know precisely why. Behind it's soulful, divine melody is the production powerhouse of Xenomania. But this is not the Xenomania production we've come to know and love - this is no high-energy pOp number. It's a superb sonic journey from start to finish and wouldn't sound out of place on an album by the ilk of Rae & Christian or Nitin Sawhney. Combine it with frontman Alex Vargas' gravelling, soulful voice and you have something truly special. auspOp

x 'Sweat (Until The Morning)' (...) starts off pretending to be 'Unfinished Sympathy' then slides into a slick, orchestral funk sort of 'affair' which doesn't really sound very good on the first listen but ends up hitting the spot about halfway through the fourth spin. Popjustice

x Multinational group Vagabond (Uruguay-Denmark-London-erm, Huddersfield) look set to score high with new single `Sweat (Until The Morning)` despite the original mix sounding like the Lighthouse Family making a comeback with a depressed Tina Turner on vocals. Culturedeluxe
