about

This is our debut EP; a collection of songs from the past two years. From journal writings of scorned love to late night scribbles and early morning epiphanies we compiled songs about the experiences of being in one's early twenties. This is a crazy, joyous, and sometimes heartbreaking time of self-discovery and change. After many sleepless nights and hours and hours of hard work...here it is

Enjoy.

Alternative Rock infused with electronic textures. Two sisters; two opposing forces of nature amidst a chaos of crashing symbols, dirty bass riffs and soaring guitar solos. Energetic, relentless songs of heartbreak, dreams and the in between.

Track Name: Close the Night
How can you stop and turn back the hands of this clock?
How can you go and bring us back to the start?
How can I ask you to change the man that you are?
How can I still be willing to give you my heart?

I won't close the night on you
I will walk through the dark with you
I won't close the night on you
I will walk through the dark with

Can't you see what I think, exactly where I stand
Kneel my head to the ground
Take the earth from my hands
Can you hear all the silence I throw to your face
Caught between your rock and this very hard place

I won't close the night on you
I will walk through the dark with you
I won't close the night on you
I will walk through the dark with you

And when you see
The pool of my love at your feet
I hope you feel
The life-force that flows out of me
And when you see
The pool of my love at your feet
I hope you feel...

I won't close the night on you
I will walk through the dark with you
I won't close the night on you
I will walk through the dark with you

I will walk
I will walk
I will walk
My heart cold as a shadow
Track Name: Old Wive's Tale
I'll pick and scratch you out my skin
I'm never, ever gonna let you back in
I'll cry, and sweat, and bleed you out
From the bottom of this glass
In the middle of a drought

Forty days and forty nights
Locked in my room
Trying to get myself right
Unpack my heart, and board the doors
To find myself face down on the floor

And I tell myself that I
And I tell myself that I
Will hang my soul out to dry
And I tell myself that I
And I tell myself that I
Will hang my soul out to dry

My weathered hands they reach for you
And pray to God they never do
I'll hang my head, and pull my hair
The last night I will ever be there

Old Wive's Tale rings strong and true
If you fool me once then shame on you
You fool me twice
The blame I take
Now to the grave with my mistake

I'll pick
You gotta get out, you gotta get out
I'll scratch
You gotta get out, you gotta get out
I'll cry
I'll bleed
You gotta get out, you gotta get out
I'll beg
You gotta get out, you gotta get out
I'll die
Track Name: The Ghost
We sit talk for hours, we're both saying nothing
For what is there ever to say
We sit, stand for hours and running in circles
Both of us getting nowhere

I talk to the midnight, to my television
Asleep, you don't hear a thing
You go through the motions
The plain, ordinary
Happy with repetition

Till this ghost
It followed you home, went through our front door
And entered the hall
This Ghost
Followed you home, went down the hall
And entered our room

Now your Ghost is sleeping next to me
Your Ghost is sleeping next to me
Your Ghost is sleeping next to me
Next to me

Living complacent, living so politely
We tip-toe around shattered glass
O and tucked in the covers
And filling the spaces
A stranger we both know so well

Please tell that Ghost to go away
Please tell that Ghost to go away
Please tell that Ghost to go away

O Ghost of the Past please go away!
Track Name: 2 AM
To be prefectly honest I was glad he was gone
And the birds sang a chorus of his walk away song

The sun will peak through as only it can do
The sun brings the truth as only it can do

It's hard to say no when it's two in the morning
And you're scared of this house
Need a man you can hold

The moon brings him through as only it can do
The moon weakens you as only it can do

What would he say if I told him
He is my beautiful poison
I turn away and I swallow my words
Yes, I swallow my words

He lay wrapped in my sheets, I lay wrapped in his arms
With each brush of his hand, O it tangles my heart

The sun sends him home as only it can do
The sun brings the truth as only it can do

What would he say if I told him
He is my beautiful poison
I turn away and I swallow my words
Yes, I swallow my words

With our bodies intwined, close the walls in our mind
And I promise myself this will be the last time

But the moon brings him back, as only it can do
The moon weakens you as only it can do

What would he say If I told him
He is my beautiful poison
I turn away and I swallow my

He turns away and I swallow my heart
I swallow my heart
I swallow my heart
Yes, I swallow my Heart
