about

"They're a multi-legged, multi-instrumented scramble up the precipitous slopes of 20-something hearts, driven along by melodies that'd tan your backside if you dared to flag. There's nothing to buck trends here. We have acoustic guitars, a banjo, a glockenspiel, a melodica. Someone is making interesting electronic sounds and there is percussion. I think. But reducing bands to their constituent parts is like sniffily suggesting Monet and Picasso are similar because their palette all comes from blends of the primary colours. It's how you arrange these sounds and the greater picture to which they are constituent parts that determines the quality The sing-a-long melodies sweeten lyrics about frustration, death and loneliness - and I know that this apparent contradiction has been the coal that fired the whole rock n roll revolution, and that that seam appears to be running low, but when it's done with this amount of truth, and a welcome lack of irony, it's enrapturing."

Track Name: how to stop an imploding man
last night I had a dream that
I woke up and looked out the window
and it was dark and off in the distance
I saw some cars
they were burning the flames lit the skies up above
as the street filled with blood
and all of my friends were all sporting fangs
and at first I was scared but then I just smiled and put on my coat,
Thought finally something to leave the house for.
this town needs something catastrophic
to wake it up
so we're waking the dead
and we'll feed on the innocence
as the innocence just got so dull and boring
so C this city is driving me crazy
and H the hate is rising up inside me
and Everyone Sometimes Tells Everyone 'Round them
you cant keep a secret your just not allowed them

to all my friends or should we just say acquaintances
you took my love and then you turned it to hatred and oh
maybe I'll see you when you get home

I'm so scared of growing old
but I'm more scared of dying alone
so if I wind up getting comfortable and settling down
then I hope that this isn't my home
