Biography

"...drippy guitar benders and wailing garage rock." - Alex Woodward, Gambit Weekly.

While everyone else is concerned with making music everyone likes—the “bangers” or the 32-writing credit pop tunes—twins Collin and Sam McCabe simply make the rock and roll they want to hear. Growing up, the boys were always fascinated with music and harnessed that intrigue into something constructive. After trying out countless projects apart, they came to the ultimate decision to stick together and have been writing at a near constant rate ever since. Originally from St. Louis, now based in New Orleans, Collin and Sam craft swift, sweeping and at times, haunting rock songs that just *click*.

After all, brothers do it better.

Lyrics

Mean to You

Written By: Collin McCabe,Sam McCabe,Jared Marcell

Who knows where you go
I want to make amends
I know that you know
You'd better do as I said

That could be me inside your head
I could be mean to you again

How long 'til you break
the panic on your face?
Never turn over
It's not a mistake

That could be me inside your head
I could be mean to you again

Sleep

Written By: Sam McCabe,Collin McCabe,Jared Marcell

You're stuck in an endless loop
and you can't quite break the news
that you've lost what you never lose
and you're stuck in an endless loop

I can predict where you go when you sleep
when you don't want to think about anything

you trip on the broken ground
and you can't quite hear the sound
of the bones as they break and compound
when you trip on the broken ground

I can predict where you go when you sleep
when you don't want to think about anything

you show just so you can be seen
and you can't look away from the scene
and you dreamt such a stupid dream
where you show just so you can be seen

I can predict where you go when you sleep
when you don't want to think about anything

Ghost

Written By: Collin McCabe

hello
I hate myself and you don't wanna know
how low I go
I'll show
every side of this telescope
oh no
die slow

solo
gonna go it alone, you don't want another
the ghost won't follow you home

in time
lights go out, i watch the water rise
slip in, pass out
high tide
deep too early better get the net
oh no
i die
