Jay Sharp the debut release of “SuperNova Beast” by Martin Luque (previously of the Dissenters and Losing You To Tattoos) brings forth the ever-controversial marriage of rock and electronic music.

The Queens native spent the last couple of years modding out Gameboys and indulging in the chiptune scene found here on Lower East Side and Bushwick in NYC and found the artist sharply changing his direction. A couple of his original songs have been reworked in a startlingly updated fashion to much success. Favorite track: I Quit My Part Time Job.

Track Name: Drive Up
We'll do it no other way
Drive up north each day
I don't believe you're part
Of a cult

No where else is as cold
High standards uphold
Quite the rush but I'm not afraid

Always on the move
It's written on the pavement
There I go I try to exit
through the darkness
You have some to offer
But you won't tell me
I won't ask again
If you play these games
Is it strange to say
You came from a higher plane
Ride around again
Until we get it right this time

Over and over
You lean on my shoulder
But I don't believe we've met before
Somehow I'm flying
Maybe just dying
I'm ready to do it again

Always on the move
It's written on the pavement
There I go I try to exit
through the darkness
You have some to offer
But you won't tell me
I won't ask again
If you play these games
Is it strange to say
You came from a higher plane
Ride around again
Until we get it right this time

We'll do it no other way
Drive up north each day
I don't believe we've met before
Track Name: Bring It Home
We grew up with this kid who seemed to be out of place
A little shy boy who didn't know where to play
Living off Hillside Ave where drivers crashed and burned
And he always came to school late afraid but not hurt
You know the kids that come from his side
Don't survive
You're lucky all they take is your pride
So don't cry

And looking back it didn't make sense why he did it
From his point of view he'd say its lose and lose
Don't you get it?
The bigger kids wait in the school yard and in the streets
But the real bully he's afraid of
Lived at his home

Hey can I trust you?
I'm finally gonna make it on my own
Just need some tough love
There's no harm done

Hey can I trust you?
I'm finally gonna make it on my own
Just need some tough love
There's no harm done
So bring it home

And the chilling part is he left it
for something worse
A long way to the finish line this could hurt
Well the rapid life of chaos rocks the Heart
How do I filter out the blues and the scars

And looking back it didn't make sense why he did it
From his point of view he'd say its lose and lose
Don't you get it?
The bigger kids wait in the school yard and in the streets
But the real bully he's afraid of
Lived at his home

Hey can I trust you?
I'm finally gonna make it on my own
Just need some tough love
There's no harm done

Hey can I trust you?
I'm finally gonna make it on my own
Just need some tough love
I won't fuck up
Bring it home

Hey can I trust you?
I'm finally gonna make it on my own
Just need some tough love
There's no harm done
Bring it home
Just bring it home
Bring it home

That's when the life of rock'n'roll
Will take my soul
That's when the life of rock'n'roll
Will take my life and drive it home
Bring it home
Track Name: When I'm In Love
When I'm in love
It feels like I'm on drugs
When the high kicks in
I don't think about anything else
Now when the love ends
I can't sleep I'm sweating
Unless I'm standing up and feeling weak

I can't keep my
Eyes open
And I can't even look at my food
So lets dig out that guitar and make some room
Lets not even write a song
Just take a picture
Don't waste your time if no one will listen

You know there were some good days
Truth be told it never got old
Every time I passed you by
I'd steal a kiss cos I couldn't wait
Until the end of the day

And for a time it was good
Except I needed some more sunlight in my life
Cos It helps with my depression

But all along
the ozone layer's been thinning
Leaving me exposed to more radiation
Why does it get worse before it gets better?
Will it get better?

Get me out of this tank alive
Kill the city lights and see the truth
There's so much that we can do
When I'm with you I'm with you

There's no limit to what you want
But that's not how I wanna start love
feeling high but not wasted
When I'm with you

Thank the goodness of the world and my family
For convincing me
that I'm not the only dreamer on the road
That keeps struggling
With the demons of the past
Moving on with higher hopes at last

As the sun rises
I realize
This isn't the end
Just the next phase to reach new heights
The spirit needs elevation to stay alive
don't compromise
Always try to beat your personal record
But right now I feel satisfied

I'm not a hypocritical pompous bastard
I'm only human and learning from my errors
Made mistakes and now changing for the better
But you know drugs and alcohol still close by
Hey man how about another?
Losing my cool and regretting my hangover

I'll stay nice if you stick around
the party doesn't need to be over
It just needs a kickstart to the storyline
I know the line was crossed
But you're happy without me?
Queue the audience applause

Get me out of this tank alive
Kill the city lights and see the truth
There's so much that we can do
When I'm with you I'm with you

There's no limit to what you want
But that's not how I wanna start love
Feeling high but not wasted
When I'm with you
Track Name: Redefined
For the last time
Lets stop and talk about this
With the baggage we have inside
And the sad fate that couldn't get by

So alone
What harm would it do to unwrap this gift
I couldn't tell you more
And that made you feel insecure
For so long
I'm a fool to think I'd save the day
Cos I'll always hear a voice in my heart sing

I'm redefined
Without wasting I lost confusion
I'm redefined
Will somebody please just wake me off this
I'm redefined
My vision is clear just lost my way back
I'm redefined
Will somebody please just wake
Just wake me up

Lets see how our dreams will fly
Through this night I can't describe
Baby please don't look at me with those eyes it makes me nervous
Baby please tell me you'll hold my hand cos it'll help me focus
So so much for the weekend getaway
You never see it coming til it's already arrived
Oh why oh why oh why oh why oh why oh why oh why?
I'm a fool to think I'll save the day
Cos I'll always hear a voice in my heart sing

I'm redefined
Without wasting I lost confusion
I'm redefined
Will somebody please just wake me off this
I'm redefined
My vision is clear just lost my way back
I'm redefined
Will somebody please just wake
Just wake me up

Just wake me up
Just wake me up
Just wake me up
Just wake me up
Track Name: I Quit My Part Time Job
I quit my part time job
I don't wanna go back
I quit my part time job
I'm not gonna lose my mind

I don't hate you
but internal affairs have
left me no choice
so it's best to leave me outside
than let me in

I'm working hard like an idiot
with next to no credit
So it's time to punch out
you can take this job and shove it up
your ass

yeah yeah yeah yeah I'm done
yeah yeah yeah I'm sick of all your crap
yeah yeah shut the fuck up just shut the fuck up
yeah yeah yeah my mind is already somewhere else

focus on today
Won't come up short changed
just another week
of playing by your rules

become accustom to
the outside world
But what am I waiting for?
you can take this job and shove it up your ass

I quit my part time job
I don't wanna go back
I quit my part time job
I'm not gonna lose my mind
I quit my part time job
fuck this place

yeah yeah yeah yeah I'm done
yeah yeah yeah I'm sick of all your crap
yeah yeah shut the fuck up just shut the fuck up
yeah yeah yeah my mind is already somewhere else
