    Ambivalence in Motion is British synthpop band Emile's Telegraphic Transmission Device's second studio album. It was a much darker, emotional and experimentally punk departure from the first album, which gives this album it's place in the purist garage synthpop genre, boasting itself with it's natural and unaffected vocal takes, giving this particular record it's relatable human side. The album was written within a 6 month period and helped gain extra attention to the band via BBC Tees and BBC 6 Music via it's one and only single 'Lady Windermere'. A majority of the tracks on the album were influenced by the death of Margaret Thatcher; known for her strict and powerful policies that affected not just a nation, but the entire world as she commanded British troops to invade the Falkland islands during the 1980s. Songs such as Victory?, This Chaotic Serenity and The Establishment; are written in response to the historical element of 1980's Britain and how she came under stress as Thatcher closed down the coal mines later on in the decade.
    The deluxe edition includes never before released material including a very early demo of Lady Windermere (when it was also based upon the Thatcher years), live songs, remixes and shelved demos that never quite made it to the record in time.

Track Name: Lady Windermere (June 11th 2013 Early Demo + Alternate Lyric/Vocal)
Verse 1

Lady Windermere
you gotta stay away
for the sake of love
and life you live today

When vitriol is in the air
ambivalence to how he dares
behind closed doors
sex and lies are not the choice
they'll hurt her more

Verse 2

Seeing barefaced truth
and hearing barefaced lies
and everything he says
forms in the tears she'll cry

When everything goes from light to dark
atmospheres remain like feelings from her broken heart
confess the truth
before everything unfolds tonight
Lord Windermere

Verse 3

Reluctance to deceive
is to always take a chance
upon this thought she leaves
to start her life again

When doubts fill up inside her head
everything on the note
oh it was read
she must get back
the home is where the truth will lie
and love will die.
