about

Crystalline was recorded in early 2015. Around the same time we were also cleaved in two: our lineup went from six to three in the space of a few days. We are currently developing a live show with a bevy of material that builds upon the space and energy of the record.

Track Name: Crystalline
What a lightning holiday
Here’s a photo of last night
Drunk boys, MDMA
Your shirt is open
Faces flushed with pink
A button’s broken

We’re crystalline
We spoke to the night
Saw distant stars
A million lights
Spin around in my mind
Spin around in my mind

You can mix osmanthus
With rubber cement
It’s a strong reaction
It’s an early warning
There’s a sensitive machine
For mistakes it lights up

One more drink and then we're done
One more hour and we're done for the night
Track Name: Perfect Love
You and I
We both like
Little stage with a few mics
Pretty soon yeah I hope they’ll hear us loud

You and I
We get high on the bright lights
And the big love
It's not life if you never fuck around

But the closest we'd ever go
To closing up this travelling show

Is for a perfect love
I've heard it's really lush
When honey brings the pretty little birds to ecstasy
They sing the sweetest little love songs
The birds never get it wrong

You and I
There are times
We lie down in a small space
It feels good just to block out all the sound

And the lengths to which we would go
For you the stage me the radio

Is for a perfect love...

We search their faces for signs
I guess that's just ill advised

The crowd can wait

I’m caught up in your perfect love
I've heard it's really lush
When honey brings the pretty little birds to ecstasy
They sing the sweetest little love songs
The birds never get it wrong
The birds never get it wrong
The birds never get it wrong
The pretty little birds never get it wrong
