Biography

From the flotsam and jetsam that was once Orange County’s much appreciated and underutilized 7 Story Sound, comes Azure Down. The band is comprised of an eclectic mix of individuals whose undigested nuggets of harmonizing vocals, lengthy free-form sonic exploration, proto-psychedelia, and post-punk etherealism helped shape their musical direction. With visually stimulating live shows, Azure Down is making thick, sonic waves among Southern California 's indie music scene and has just signed its first recording contract with local Southern California indie label IML Records. Azure Down will be releasing their debut album, "We Searched for Neptune", in March 2009 and is looking forward to a bright future that can only exceed the fantastic present.

Lyrics

Syncretism

Written By: Deborah Nortin and Justin Kertson

High in the sky and I'm shinging down on you
High in the sky and I'm falling down on you
High in the sky I'm whispering your name
High in the sky and I'll never be the same

Here on the ground and you're trying not to fall
Here on the ground and you start to hear my call
Here on the ground and you feel their disdain
Here on the ground playing in the falling rain

And I want to fly
Keep my feet up off the ground
And I want to fly
And I'll fly

Deep down below and your swimming in my tears
Deep down below and your bathing in my fears
Deep down below and you fight for every breath
Deep down below and I'll save you from yourself

And I want to die
Sink into the depths below
And I want to die
And I'll die

And you feel like you're alone
Even though you have grown
All the seeds that you have sewn

And the darkness of your mind
Is the darkness of my mind
You can feel yourself unwind

And I want to fly
Keep my feet up off the ground
And I want to fly
And I'll fly

And I want to die
Sink into the depths below
And I want to die
And I'll die

Crushing

Written By: Deborah Norton

It's a mystery it seems
All these pictures in my dreams

Of a world I know
Where I long to go
Where my feelings show
What you mean to me
And I love you

But reality it seems
Is not quite so good to me

So I'll hold my tongue
Till I've come undone
Till I start to run
Away from you
What to do?

So I'll just stare at you
Nothing more to do
I haven't got a clue
About these things

So I'll just stare at you
Nothing more to do
I haven't got a clue
About these things

Cookie Cutter Homes -

Who are you?
Who are you?
Why are you?

Who are you?
Who are you?
Why are you?

Drone

Written By: Justin Kertson

Everywhere you look people all seem to be the same.
Cookie cutter homes pop up so quickly it's insane.
Working jobs you hate to buy more of the same old things.
TV, cars, and cell phones, an expensive diamond ring.

Drone, drone, drone so alone.
Drone, drone, drone so alone.

Have to buy more of the things commercials tell you to.
Do what all the politicians say Jesus would do.
You're so uncreative give me something that is new.
Bleating sheep surround me I have never been more through.

Drone, drone, drone so alone.
Drone, drone, drone so alone.
Drone, drone, drone so alone.
Drone, drone, drone so alone.
