Sinister yet charming, Systems Officer creates disquieting soundscapes set to insistent grooves on Underslept, its first full-length release. The brainchild of San Diego’s Armistead Burwell Smith IV (Pinback, Three Mile Pilot), this project has a noticeable Britpop vibe to it, harkening back at times to the eerie early work of Pink Floyd. As Systems Officer’s sole vocalist and musician, Smith carefully constructs darkly hypnotic tracks out of simple elements, emphasizing pianos, electric guitars and drum loops. The album’s furtive ambiance is propelled along by funky yet sleek beats, with Shape Shifter achieving a particularly visceral drive. Smith has a knack for melody as well, as evidenced by the pensively tuneful piano line carrying East. Underslept Systems Officer.

We Breathe Dust Lyrics. You bring me right to the end You bring me right to the end So close to the end Oh I fade away I feel I've reached the end I'm going down Down Farther, farther into the dust I'm going down It's a sign that I can't ignore No more Have I been misjudged I want to know.
