about

Pentasonic Seoul, South Korea

Originally fusing the influences of 5 individuals from 4 continents. Pentasonic made sure that they were not pigeon-holed to rock for very long and by early fall 2012, fuelled by a line up change where 5 became 4, the band had reinvented their sound with a different groove... a jazz/funk edge that still uses elements of modern rock, Brit-Pop and a range of other styles.... ... more

Track Name: Analogue Soul
If love don't change, it stays the same, then why am I always on my own?
Try as I might, I know the connections not right yet... and it's breaking my heart.

Everyone around me all I see are people looking down at their LCDs. Maybe we've forgot what it means to be. The world's a lot smaller than it was before. A lot less distance with more open doors. I still feel....

I'm an analogue soul in a digital world and I'm wondering how to connect to you.
I'm an analogue soul in a digital world and I wonder if you feel the same way too.

We got to stay positive. So many reasons to live, I know it will always be so.
And I remember when life wasn't so tense and it's making me think about...

Well everybody near, all I hear are digital beats invading my ears. It didn't used to feel like this. People living life through a handheld device, no lack of love, but please “like”. It kinda makes me feel.

I'm an analogue soul in a digital world and I'm wondering how to connect to you.
I'm an analogue soul in a digital world and I wonder if you feel the same way too.
Track Name: Love Enough
Oh Mother Earth, did we take too much?
Feels like your telling us to balance our mistakes...
We can say it's fair, you've never held a grudge,
But maybe time is running out, this price is too steep to pay
It's not currency yeh, more like the things we see
we'll miss them when they're gone, they won't be there for long...
so give the love, yeh give her love enough
and fix the damage that we've done, and right the wrong


Is there love enough for you?
After all the things we put you through...
Is it time to change our deal?
And make our love enough to feel!!!


It's been going on, for far too long
we just haven't read the signs, the warnings from your skies. I guess we feel….
like we're invincible, like there's no challenge we can't face,
nothing that we can't replace
If that were only true yeh, but there's only one you
time to reinstate this place with a caring human race
that'll treat you right, keep you safe at night
fix the damage that we've done, right the wrong
Track Name: Distance & Time
For once in your life you feel the stars have aligned for you, but that's not really the case. It happens sometimes you feel you're walking a fine line. It could go either way.

But don't give it up. You're closer than you think you are. So come on, light it up, every fire needs a spark!

Distance and time well you, opened my mind and I wouldn't be the man I am without you.
Distance and time, I'm just part of your design and I wouldn't change a thing even if I could....

It's be a little while since, I was convinced that there's precious little time to waste. I know it won't last and, this too shall pass but, you've got to live a little every day.
Track Name: 2 Birds / 1 Stone
You say we've gone too far, chasing dollars, catching stars, but that's not who we are.
Just want to see you dance, try to catch your glance, not to miss the chance.

I'm gonna kill two birds with just one stone.
We're done with working ourselves to the bone.
I want to live a life that, that I know is good. Not simply doing something, I was told I should.... We can only take, from the love we make,
I'm gonna kill tow birds with just one stone.


Always looking for the right vibe, chasing rainbows, dodging dark clouds, fighting through the crowd. Just doing something that you love, feels much better than... simply giving up!

I'm gonna kill two birds with just one stone.
We're done with working ourselves to the bone.
I want to live a life that, that I know is good. Not simply doing something, I was told I should.... We can only take, from the love we make,
I'm gonna kill tow birds with just one stone.

Well you go your way, I'm gonna find my own and I can never understand.
Why people quit their dreams as close as they may be. You've got to finally say, it's ours.
Track Name: Star Trek
I want to boldly go where no one's gone before. Come with me to these strange new worlds. So much to see, so much to explore....

Cruising 'round this universe... Always looking forward, never in reverse. I want to find new life, and see what it's like... Outside our Milky Way. Got to stay logical, as much as possible, while we're away. We've got to chronicle all the obstacles, that fall in our way!
We don't know where we're going... It's time to plot the course in...
There's no way back from this mission!

I want to boldly go where no one's gone before. Come with me to these strange new worlds. So much to see, so much to explore....

We don't know where we're going... It's time to plot the course in...

Deadliest thing I've ever seen, not really a man, not really a machine.
They said “Resistance is futile”, but I laughed at them and said, “that's not my style.”
The scariest thing I've ever known is wondering if we'll ever find our way home...
And if I touch down on Earth again, we'll have to see what that will bring

We don't know where we're going... It's time to plot the course in...
There's no way back from this mission!

I want to boldly go where no one's gone before. Come with me to these strange new worlds. So much to see, so much to explore....
Faster than light, through the galaxy. We're not here to fight, no we come in peace!
I want to boldly go where no one's gone before.
Track Name: Just Once
I've never been that good alone, more of a rolling stone that wants some company. I can't really play the game, no one else to blame it's just the way I feel. It's not a lack of love, or of trust... but maybe its a fantasy. I need to open up my heart, need something else to believe.

You can't always see the truth, when you're joined as two, a love combined gonna make you blind. Hoping for something better than the things you leave behind.

Just once, I wanna know that my heart is right.
Just once, I wanna know before I waste my time.... oh just once

We've all been here before. People always say, “there's more fish in the sea”.
But maybe it's my fate to swim alone for eternity...

You can't always see the truth, when you're joined as two, a love combined gonna make you blind. Hoping for something better than the things you leave behind.

Just once, I wanna know that my heart is right.
Just once, I wanna know before I waste my time....

Always I thought I'd be, a better me, I've gotta unlock the door.
Or maybe stop asking for, asking for so much more...
Track Name: Fools Like Us
With all the wonders in the world, well I couldn't understand why you'd be my girl. But you said the same to me, why is happiness so hard to believe?
'Cos we can take it slow, like we don't know the best way to go....
So let's speed it up, we can always try our luck...

Might never get the world around us, might never understand what's behind us.
We can always see the future's bright! Love was made for fools like us and I just can't get enough of your love...

Love was made for fools like us and I just can't get enough of your love.
I just can't get enough, I just can't get enough
'Cos once is never enough
Love was made for fools like us and I just can't get enough of your love.

Love is blind and I can't see the direction that love's taking me.
It's too easy to criticize, so baby don't over analyze...
'Cos we can turn it down, like there's no one around to hear the sound.
So lets turn it up, we can always try our luck...

I might never see the stars aligning, that doesn't mean I should stop trying.
Everything will be alright with you by my side, love was made for fools like us and I just can't get enough of your love...

Love was made for fools like us and I just can't get enough of your love.
I just can't get enough, I just can't get enough
'Cos once is never enough
Love was made for fools like us and I just can't get enough of your love.
Track Name: All The Funk We Need
I want live on a street in San Francisco 1973.
I want to be so high as kite you'll have to come up and rescue me.
I wanna roll right off the dance floor with the girl of my dreams.
Tonight we'll build a memory from impossibilities.

We got all the funk we need yeah, to make us happy...
We got all the funk we need yeah, to make us happy...

As the crowd gets down the people on the town can feel that slow release.
Love is the drug that keeps you high, full of energy.
I wanna roll right off the dance floor into a new reality.
Tonight we'll walk the tightrope to the circus of our dreams, yeah!

We got all the funk we need yeah, to make us happy...
We got all the funk we need yeah, to make us happy...

We got all the funk we need yeah, to make us happy...
We got every little thing we need yeah, to make us happy...
Track Name: Gonna Make It
I feel a little lost at sea, nobody here with me, so I'm all up in the music.
Long days and endless nights, not afraid to try, you gotta keep your body grooving.
Well, who knows where it ends or how far you can ascend... you're all up in the music!

Taking everything you want, taking everything you need.
Taking everything to get you where you need to be... we're far from done.
We've only just begun... yeah... we're gonna make it!

Don't close your eyes, you might miss the prize. You've gotta keep your body grooving.
Please don't hesitate! You know it's never too late, to get down with the music!

Taking everything you want, taking everything you need.
Taking everything to get you where you need to be... we're far from done.
We've only just begun... yeah... we're gonna make it!
Track Name: Funktional
She said, “Hey, don't worry... tomorrow will be a brighter day.”
I'm not looking back at the problems, feels like nothing's really going my way.
So, I'm waiting on a sun rise to blow those dark clouds away.
I'm not looking back at the problems, try things bright from dark gray....

Are we really funktional? I'm looking for that blue sky...
Am I funktional? Yeah we're gonna learn to fly!
Are we really funktional? If I'm hiding from the inside, am I funktional?

Do you remember who you were, before they told you who to be?
It's got me thinking about the old days. THE PRICE OF FREEDOM WAS NEVER FREE.
So, I'm waiting on a sunrise, I'm shaking off the debris.
With a feeling. With an empty silence. Be careful who you believe....

Am I really funktional? I'm looking for that blue sky...
Am I funktional? Yeah we're gonna learn to fly!
Am I really funktional? If I'm hiding from the inside, am I funktional?

I don't understand what she says when she talks to me.
It feels like I'm just finding there's something else that's better to believe...

Am I really funktional? Well, am I really funktional? If I'm hiding from the inside
Am I funktional? Am I really funktional?

Are we really funktional? We're looking for that blue sky...
Am we really funktional? Yeah we're gonna learn to fly!
Am I really funktional? If I'm hiding from the inside, am I funktional?
