about

Recorded in January 2014, its our Debut EP, we sold out the initial CD production run of 100 so we've decided to put it online, thanks to everyone who listens or buys the EP xx

Some awesome Reviews!

"One of the nicer and more palatable indie-rock bands that will swarm your radios this summer" - Ryan Saar (SoundlySounds Blog)

"Loved it, awesome EP" - Matt O Gorman (Drummer from British India)

"Smashing Pumpkins lovechild with The Wombats. Got the sound nailed. (Ocean) Basslines give me life. This one resurrects me." - Cindy Van Souphan (The Infinite Sadness Blog)

"Some really solid grungy rock forming here. Sounds a little like Grouplove. This song (Summer Of Decay) = ear worm!" - Chloe Papas (Journalist/Blogger)

Track Name: Story Of A Kid
All you boys and girls
You’re not just diamonds and pearls
It’d really be a shame
If your death didn’t make a name

Everybody sitting in the crowd
Raise your voice and fucking loud
I know what you’re thinking about
So come on now fucking shout

Come on hey yeah
Here we go now hey
Here we go now

So give me something that you want
Better not fucking take
‘Cause it’s not like I just stay here
Not for very long

So give me something that you want
Better not fucking take
‘Cause it’s not like I just stay here
Not for very long
Track Name: Ocean
We fear today, a world without change
Our real ideals, becoming so pained
The memories I lack, that i don't want back
'Cause i'm hating, this time

I feel it now coming, I’ll tell you what I want
To put out this rogue fire, and catch a free ride home
I see it in your eyes, and I know that we’re not close

We made it to the ocean
To find it out here, today
That we must save ourselves

We made it to the ocean
To find it out here, today
That we must save ourselves

Pasting up the posters, in the back of our minds
Empty head, cheap decorations are forcing us blind
And closing the doors, open your legs and pockets
You’ll be pleased to find, that happiness will be on sale
For a limited time

I feel it now coming, I’ll tell you what I want
To put out this rogue fire, and catch a free ride home
I see it in your eyes, and I know that we’re not close

We made it to the ocean
To find it out here, today
That we must save ourselves

We made it to the ocean
To find it out here, today
That we must save ourselves

We made it to the ocean
To find it out here, today
That we must save ourselves

We made it to the ocean
To find it out here, today
That we must save ourselves

We made it to
We made it to the ocean
The ocean, oh I know
The ocean, the ocean
Track Name: Summer Of Decay
I used to know you
But you have changed
You used to speak to me
Now I feel estranged

Couldn't get closer
I wanted things
But my anger
Held back by my heartstrings 

Another day
In the summer of decay
I lost my love, I lost my way
Still I lie in bed and blame

All the people and the things
i could've changed, I’m feeling feeble
‘Cause when the moment it starts to rain
I’ll live my summer out again

From the backbeat of my heart
My love for you, tears me apart
I’m trapped inside, sun cannot help
I went away to wreck myself

Endless summer will it go on
Will you love me when I am gone
A little hope helps me with pain 
A chance to speak to you again

It be a long time
Before i feel sun shine
I know that
It’s wrong to try

But my reasons
That you don't seem to buy
There's no explaining
So I still live like this

Another day
In the summer of decay
I lost my love, I lost my way
Still i lie in bed and blame

All the people and the things
I could've changed, I’m feeling feeble
‘Cause when the moment it starts to rain
I’ll live my summer out again

Slow the beating of my heart
I'm left to tear myself apart
I gotta know just where to start
To live my summer without a heart

I must start searching so I am found
I spent my summer on the ground
Open my eyes and step outside
The endless summer's a free ride
Track Name: Revelations
Words can’t describe
The way I feel
I’m not trying to hurt you
Intentionally

I know that it hurts
But I try so hard
And it’s only getting worse
Right from the very start

From the start
From the start
From the start

It’s happening again
We’re always so close
Even when we’re far
It’s only with you

The closest person I know
Tell me anything
Everything
Now come away

Come away

I’m waiting on the corner
I try to speak your name
Who am I to blame
It’s always the fucking same

I’m holding onto meaning
When there’s nothing to hold onto
Well I

I really love you
I really love you

Even through all
Of this mess
I will always hold
You so close

The memories we’ve shared
Are unlike any other
I haven’t had time to say this
But let’s go

Let’s go

So tell me why (tell me why)
You had to cry (you had to cry)
And make me wanna die

So tell me why (tell me why)
You had to cry (you had to cry)
And make me wanna die

I’m waiting on the corner
I try to speak your name
Who am I to blame
It’s always the fucking same

I’m holding onto meaning
When there’s nothing to hold onto
Well I

I really love you
I really love you
