Still Green 02:44
still green and waiting for elation separated from shape patiently you embrace and fold carefully forever, like this ripe with synthesis, but dripping with self-punishment alone on my shit, gnawing at my worth like bones you won't
Flutter 03:00
a melody eloquently sung a voice she gave to him like Loretta Lynn, forever tied to-- in ephemeral, elusive harmony, all over like we'd sing the english sunshine covers your skin
Evaporation 03:28
I've been trying to be patient self-reflection and human relation I'm based, I'm latent and every manifestation there blatant in my head waiting for dilaudid blanket relatably faceless naked in moonlight, gyrating wasted I've been trying all my life to just get tired of this head every manifestation there blantant in my bed everything else evaporation nothing evaporation fucked into an open casket maybe I could just get tired for a chain where every manifestation is complacent to my brain singing rain, rain, rain, rain waiting to become evaporation
Love Song 01:44
on a bender, you had some time to yourself oh I wonder if you feel the same as me now we're cut from the same cloth, but you've got me feeling down so I'm sitting on my own and I'm thinking the same thoughts, but some new sounds, like so look around and you might find
Bloom 04:13
every morning when the sun comes up I lay me down feel my body ease into my bed I recall songs long gone, like memories lost so don't you cry, even the weak ones will get by every morning when the sun comes up I lay me down Buddy Holly playing in my head I recall songs long gone, like memories lost
Four 02:58
白い色 綺麗すぎる 石を 左手を 伸ばして ほら 大切に しまいこんで ポケットに あの部屋に 並べるころ 魔法が 消える 1ミリも 気づけない あなたの いるところへ 無駄な この歌を 夜に ばらまいて ただ 石ころのまま 吸い込まれる 白い色 綺麗すぎる この言葉 水の石 流れの中 ゆれる ゆれる 1ミリでも 気づけない この想いだけ ほら 水に浮かべる
so now that you feel and see, you know completely read it back now, over and out traipsing carefully, wondering how it always comes to this, 'cause I live a love even when I know it isn't true I wanna be part of this wave oh no doesn't even matter when you say "I woke up to this" and I feel I don't know every time you ask me what I want don't wanna be alone 'cause I know what I'm like doesn't even matter if you're right now that I feel this heat, I know completely easing backwards, muddled and high when you ask me "hey, wanna go dancing?" I would love to.
Home 02:41
go back to that endless asphalt where you can take your time but you just wait 'cause I'm stuttering all night long misdirect me do I dare look down? afraid of what I'd see this is the game we played as kids, didn't take a minute to learn this is the game we played as kids, didn't take a minute to learn this is the shame we made as kids, that you didn't have to mention to her this is the game we played as kids, only takes a minute to hurt love like a small town
Pleasure 04:42
I'm trying to say that all of my life's been all of my lies and, let's just face it, no one's in your eyes and you're all alone now I'm just an asshole, take what I want oh what I'd do to you when you're feeling let down I've been trying to fake it all of my life just like you
Mallow 05:00
it was all we had pulled together from bits of dust and the dead fickle memories ring the changes time eats away. feel so hollow my bones might give up from giving up the marrow you dissipate like vapor, learn to discorporate I'm destined to try as if it's all in my hands but I love everything I live for equally excited to die giving up the marrow gushing with my soul inside sipping on the phantom of hope I won't venerate old enough to kill for resilience it dissipates everything I live for equally excited to die crushed into the marrow of exploded self, deny incinerate like favor, expand and disassociate elevate like vapor, learn to discorporate


Listen LOUD on speakers for the best experience!

Our newest album is a melting pot of everything we love: Beatlesque harmonies, swirling shoegaze haze, chiming and gnashing guitars, and a focus on great songwriting.

"Definitely Band" was recorded straight to 2" tape over the course of two years. We took a different approach with every track on the album, always striving to use new sounds and push ourselves into fresh sonic territory.
