about

This album is an ode to falling in and out of love, all in the heat of an endless summer. Much love to everyone that believed in us right from the beginning 💞

We did a little music video with our pals Gus Bendinelli and Will Merrick for our first single "Telltale Signs" ✨: youtu.be/IKgstZ7xcGc

Track Name: Vacation
Fall in love with someone new
Just feeling a little blue

She's what you want to be
But that's not what you are
My dysmorphia though
Oh what a dilemma

I need a vacation badly
Happiness is fleeting baby
Everyday is looking so bleak
Your smile won't last so take a picture now

He'll be handing you a flower
Saying you've got all the power

Now watch it all crumble in your hands
Control, for what it's worth, lacks demand

Walk into your air of glory
This emptiness is killing me and
Everyday is looking so bleak
Your smile won't last so take a picture
Track Name: Astronomy
I can’t understand
What’s going on in your head
But I want you back

Does it make you scared
That the fault lies in my bed
Does it make you mad, all the tears you shed

Things will never be the same
Always looking for someone to put the blame on
You know I still want you

Patience wearing thin
It’s getting harder to breathe
Standing all around me

I think astronomy
Clouds in the galaxy
Closing in on me, and it’s spiraling

Loose threads rippin’ off
My glitter finery
Lost my identity
A horrible tragedy

Things will never be the same
Always looking for someone to put the blame on
You know I still want you

Sinking deeper or so I fear
Risking everything I have for you, my dear

Loose threads ripping up my glitter finery
Lost my identity, a horrible tragedy
Track Name: Breakfast
The ceiling
It’s higher than its even been
He doesn't even care

So tell me
Is it so hard to treat me better
You’re lying to yourself

Dragging my feet around the carpet again and again
It makes me so sad

Breakfast feels like giving up again
Just sigh a little harder
The road is looking farther
It’s in my head again

Mirrors don't just speak
Screaming it’s a lie, screaming it’s a lie
So sick of fighting a losing battle
Everyday

You can't have
Your happiness and eat it too
Why am I so full of hate
I'm so full of hate

It's getting old
Healing my emaciated soul
It’s killing me inside

Dragging my feet around the carpet again and again
It makes me so sad so sad
No one tells me I'm losing grip of reality
It’s like my mind has finally won me over

Dining with a straight face
Feeling like a hopeless case
Once again I am so consumed
Here I am still waiting for

The flowers to bloom
I am so consumed
Leave me be, just wait and see
Slowly regaining my sanity
Track Name: All Poison
Think you know it now
When you've finally had enough
Memories unzip themselves
Fill my head full of doubt

Hop on planes and try to figure out
I’m checking off the boxes on ways I could fix myself
Dreams of life so hollow but it sells
Don't get up too close to the fire you're starting to melt

Fairytales aside
Miracles are dangerous
Rectify all your flaws
It's all poison

Floating so high I think I could taste it all
But the comedown's steep, you're dizzy from the fall
Pick your scabs, you say they've healed before
Irrational and angry, it's familiar I recall

Scouring
Who knows what you might find there
Discovering
There's more than surface deep desires

Runnin out of ways to stay in line
When will I find a space that I could feel safe inside
Busy hands and bitter tired minds
There's only so much my head can handle at a time
Track Name: Party Song
Let’s throw a party
Dirty dishes and copious
Amounts of anxiety
Lurking toes under the sheets

The room is getting real uptight
Or are these kids just
High off adrenaline
Pacing ‘round the balcony

Roaming ‘round the streets
High off the summer sweet
I can see your silhouette still
Dancing ‘round your feet

Lay here if you may
Stay here for the day
Doesn’t matter if the earth caves
I’m sure we’ll find a way
You know we’ll always be okay

In the corner
Waiting for the mood to dim
‘Cause the lights are blinding me
Artificial energies

I’m feeling so strung out
After all this time, I’ve realised
It was never meant to be
Let’s stay home and watch TV
Track Name: Sundae
Wasted days I'm not a cliche
But I love dancing in the rain
Run away I made a mistake
Now I must pave the way

There's a universe I'd rather be now
But there's no point complaining
Wasted space all in your head
Cowering under

Watching you go away
The sun, it kills me everyday
Don't know how you've led me astray
But now you're such a bore
Sundays never been a chore
I’m seeing it clearer than before

But where do I go to now
It’s all mellow and shallow anyhow
Hard to be myself in such a race
Scornful faces unkind places

Summertime is always breezy in here
But don't get too relieved
Walk in places you've never been
You're not getting younger

Watching you go away
The sun it kills me everyday
Don't know how you've led me astray
But now you're such a bore
Sundays never been a chore
im seeing it clearer than before

But where do I go to now
It’s all mellow and shallow anyhow
Hard to be myself in such a race
Scornful faces unkind places

Take a chance tonight
Better now before you lose sight
I don't think I sound crazy
Clock is ticking, you're not watching
Track Name: Eastbound
Walking in circles
Heavy thoughts are on our chests
Never thought I
Would be in such a mess

Oh, won’t you please just stick around
Just stick around, just stick around

Hands in my pockets
I’m feeling kinda down
Don’t wanna make a scene
But I’m tired of holding on

Train’s coming our way
I’ll make sure I’m okay
Don’t turn your back around

(Slow it down, slow it down)

Slow it down, slow it down
Can’t we wait for the next eastbound
Train to come, train to come
I’m doing my best to keep my calm

(Slow it down, slow it down)
(Stick around, stick around)
Track Name: Telltale Signs
I've been up past noon
My clouds make faces out of you
But I'm waiting for the sun

Thoughts of being in your arms
As I hugged your material ones
Your scent began to fade

I'm tired of feeling so confused
Stop changing your mind
Telltale signs

Just wanna lie here all day with you
Backseat of your car
Count the stars

Thought you always knew
How I felt when I'm next to you
But you threw it all away

It's not too late to get out of
This mess before you disappear
Lose yourself again

Maybe I'll take the longer way home
Get a little lost but at least I know
Maybe I'll take the longer way home
Anything for you even if I'm cold

Break my heart but at least I know

I'm tired of feeling so confused
Stop changing your mind
Telltale signs

Just wanna lie here all day with you
Backseat of your car
Count the stars

Telltale signs
Telltale signs
Telltale signs
Telltale signs
