Biography

Always April has been described as "Gritty and Relentless...a nervous breakdown live" "...they reach the outer limits of craziness without losing control" says Bob Vinyl writer for AMP, Glide and Fence Post. Charmaine's vocals seduce, assault and amuse all in the same breath. Her off beat stage antics along with members Josh Coker (Guitar) formerly of legendary Sacramento band Phallucy, Bart Huff (Bass) and Paul Heller (Drums) make a powerful, dynamic and truly original sound with a focus on songwriting that has been compared to The Pixies, Sonic Youth, Janes Addiction and PJ Harvey. While hidden in the woods of North Central Arkansas, Always April has been writing and recording in what they affectionately call "The Cabin". Their self released debut cd KID GLOVES weaves plot lines and emotions in perfect contrast with intensity to spare. Lend an ear, spread the word and come to a show!

Lyrics

Wavelength

Written By: Josh Coker

i wish everyone
had a radio
up inside their head
that told them what to do
THAT TOLD EM WHAT TO DO

if my eye betrays me, I’ll rip it out
it’s getting old, there’s nothing new
I hear it’s pretty, I want to see it
hold it in my hand, to finally see who I really am
WHO I REALLY AM

I want to back out of the deal
the one I made so long ago
that I don’t even know
who I made it with
or what it was for...

When I touch everything, everything that hurts
I’m getting old, there’s nothing left
that doesn’t ache, I want to feel it
my body like it was, what I felt before I knew too much
BEFORE I KNEW TOO MUCH

I wish everyone
had a radio
up inside their head
that told them what to do
THAT TOLD EM WHAT TO DO...

Rubies

Written By: Josh Coker

IM TAKEN BY THE AIR WITHIN US
AND PAID FOR LIKE A PAMPERED HEIRESS
IM LAZY, DONT WANT TO TAKE TIME TO DO THIS
THEY MADE UP, A GAME FOR BREAKING US
SAID
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE
ONE OF THE RUBIES?
SLAPPED TO THE SIDE
AND IN MY EYES
I’VE GOT
NO RIGHT OF PASSAGE
AND NO ONE
TO PASS THE MESSAGE
LET GO OF ALL THE CRISIS
WHO TOLD YOU THAT YOU’RE SO PRICELESS?

TAKE BACK MY MOANS
DRY AS A BONE
FIGURE IT OUT AND TAKE ME HOME

SAID
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE
ONE OF THE RUBIES?
SLAPPED TO THE SIDE
SAID
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE
ONE OF THE RUBIES?
SLAPPED TO THE SIDE

Blindsided

Written By: Charmaine

i find i’m blindsided
