Biography

The Middle Eight makes music for your brain and your ears. The New York-based outfit brings classical sensibilities to an indie rock context, building textured, even orchestral layers of sound. STRANGE LOOP, their newest release, is an exploration of sonic combinations that is at once catchy and unpredictable, drawing on influences ranging from Romantic sonatas to 1970s art-rock. Members: Jason Olshan - Lead Vocals & Rhythm Guitar Steve Plekan - Bass & Backing Vocals David McTiernan - Keyboards & Backing Vocals Tallin Lamonaca - Drums & Percussion

AM New York: "this indie-rock group has a lush sound filled with classical influences and catchy melodies."

Nick Sansano (Producer of Sonic Youth, Public Enemy and others) said this: "In the musically pre fab short attention span world of pop music, The Middle Eight stands out as fearless musical renegades. They are not afraid to actually write a song, explore sonic places, and skillfully play their instruments. New music from real musicians...how novel."

Lyrics

Love Pass it On

Written By: The Middle Eight

Love; Pass it On
It’s you, my friend, my love won’t you take me away
Pick me up, tell me now tell me everyone’s gonna go out
And it’s you that I will get used to and its me that you will get used to
Cant you see I will go round this world till I find my girl and I know ever be wrong
And I will get used to you yes its true and I will get used to you and I know its me so I ask you to see and she tells me once no she tells you twice
If you Love someone; they’re gonna pass it on.
And it’s you that I will get used to, and it’s me that you will get used to
Don’t you know that I will sing every song ‘til my voice is gone and everybody’s singing along
And I will get used to you yes it’s you that I will get used to
We’ll dance and shout gonna work it all out to find our way when you hear me say
If you Love someone; they’re gonna pass it on.
And it’s you that you will get used to and it’s me that I will get used to
Have no fear, I’m gonna stand my ground ‘til what’s lost is found and everybody’s passing it down
I will get used to you, yes it’s true, I will get used to you
Come on take my hand and you’ll understand that the love you make is the love you take
If you Love someone; they’re gonna pass it on.
