Biography

Twentyfourfeet is a 7-piece band originating from the most remote capital city in the world... Perth, Western Australia. With influences such as Yellowcard and Motion City Soundtrack, their infectious style flavours rock with atmospheric brass arrangements.

In November 2004, their pre-release track, “Too Much Caffeine” was announced in the top 5 of the ‘Alternative category in the Australia wide ‘Music-oz’ competition. It was featured on the soundtrack of 6 times world champion surfer, Layne Beachley’s DVD, “Life in the Fast Layne” which was released internationally at the end of 2004.

In 2006 with a 5-track EP recorded, they relocated to Melbourne to pour their efforts into the band. Their debut EP ‘Honest Kiss’ was released recently this year and is already receiving airplay on over 40 community radio stations.

Twentyfourfeet have played across Australia, performing comfortably alongside bands such as Day of Fire (USA), Nevertheless (NZ), Antiskeptic (Vic), After the Fall (NSW), and Thinktank (SA). Their music sits well with fans of punk, rock, and ska.

Lyrics

Love or Hatred

Written By: Twentyfourfeet

Shattered Mirror
A view no clearer
Reflects a splintered past

A sealed lock
Unopened vault
Secrets held away too tight

Old scars reveal forgotten wounds

Love or Hatred
Your mind, so blind, I wish you’d make it

Love or hatred
You give your heart to all who’ll take it

A love less sacred
You’re so confused, your mind can’t take it

Don’t make the past your future

Passing winters
Slipping deeper
Much too hard to see within

Shifting pressure
Love drifts further
Slips from hands and out of reach

Old pain transferred to innocence

Painted Doll

Written By: Twentyfourfeet

She always wanted to be so beautiful
To know that people would notice
That she’s not invisible, not ordinary

Her painted eyes were darting
She didn’t like the crowd
Holding someone else’s hand, ever needing

Painted doll
Staring ahead, just like before
Painted doll
stunning outfit, what’s it for?
Painted doll
Trapped in insecurity
Painted doll, you’re not alone, you’re not alone

Flirting with the line again
Things aren’t going well
Where is one to understand, unconditional

I wish her tear-filled eyes could know
Now that the cracks appear
She’s so close to shattering, exposing fear

Bright Glow

Written By: Twentyfourfeet

I’m so glad
You’ve been waiting for me
Even when I wasn’t loving you
You were loving me

You waited patiently
For me to tell you my hopes and dreams
I’m so glad
You were waiting for me

I’m so glad you were waiting,
Waiting, waiting for me

Bright glow sun shining
Though winds of fate are rushing in
Mortality looming
Immortality pending

You were waiting
You were waiting
For me

Bright glow your healing
Alone my soul tears form my senses
My tempest raging
In stillness waiting for me
