Biography

Beehive consists of Vocalist/Producer Alethea 'Butterfly Beats' and Guitarist/Vocalist David Miller. This duo creates electronic rhythms and soundscapes, combined with emotive vocals, and commanding guitar tones that are organic yet modern sounding to craft hook laden, melodic, and powerful indie-rock/electronic/pop songs.

SPIN Magazine voted Beehive as one of the Top 8 Undiscovered Bands last year. In addition, the band's debut release, "Pretty Little Thieves" charted at number 1 at several college radio stations in the US and Canada within the first week of its release, as well as in the top 10 of over 100 colleges across the nation. Overall, "Pretty Little Thieves" was added into the rotation at over 400 colleges across the United States and Canada. Right out of the starting gate successes like these continue to earn Beehive outstanding praise from respected publications, radio stations, and magazines, including licensing placements on several notable television shows and movies. All of which celebrate Beehive's modern, unique, yet classic sound. "there's no doubting the inherent soul of Beehive" (SPIN MAGAZINE)

"This duo makes music that electronic heads can dig into and rockers can rock out to' (MF Magazine). The Tacoma Volcano calls Beehive "Giant, cool and fun... technology and humans interfacing, causing a tidal wave of infectious energy." Seattle Sound Magazine proclaimed Pretty Little Thieves '"Equal parts late U2 and the Killers. Beehive's debut full length is infectious, modern and fresh, while still pays homage to all electro pop rock albums that have come before."

In a live setting Beehive "breaks out the honey" (Seattle Times) through their energetic sets, playing several notable festivals and conferences across the continent, such as CMJ in NYC, SXSW (Go Girls Showcase) in Austin, Bumbershoot in Seattle, NXNE in Toronto, New Music West Conference in Vancouver, Ladyfest South in Atlanta, Microsoft Gamefest, and the Seattle Pride Festival. Beehive has toured in cities all over the United States independently and with other high profile electronic pop acts such as Digitalism and Fujiya and Miyagi to name a few. Moreover, in their hometown of Seattle, Beehive is considered to be one of the "Best Seattle Electronica Acts" as evidenced through their nomination by Seattle's premier entertainment magazine the "Seattle Weekly".

Songs from Pretty Little Thieves have continuously won Beehive competitions and spotlights throughout the nation, some of which include band spotlights for: CMJ, URB Magazine,Sonicbids,
Local Northwest Promotions, and the Musican's Atlas. Furthermore Beehive has placed as finalists over 12 times in 12 months, and has won 6 times in the Alternative, Indie Pop, and Electronic categories on the band competition website Ourstage.com.

High profile radio stations, syndicated shows, podcasts, and internet sites embrace Beehive's sound, some of these include WFNX Sonicbids Emerging Artist Showcase, the Coloradowave, Seattle's 107.7 KNDD The Young and The Restless, 90.3 KEXP In Studio Performances, Myxer.com Featured Ringtones, Amie Street "Best New Music Features", Microsoft Zune, Imeem.com, and AOL / Spinner.com Listening Party.

In addition to radio and press, Beehive has made their own path in the world of licensing with placements on several notable television shows and movies. Some of these include CW 's New 90210, CBS 's "Harper's Island", Oxygen 's "Bad Girls Club", MTV 's Real World, Road Rules, Extreme Challange, VH1' s "Old Skool", E Channel "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" and Klohe and Kourtney take Miami", soundtrack placements on feature films such as "Loaded", and corporate placements for major companies such as Corbis Imaging and Microsoft.

Seattle's KEXP radio calls Beehive "definitely one to keep an eye on," and Future Music Magazine calls them "..far ahead of the pack." Beehive is definitely a band with a fresh new sound.

Beehive's new album is scheduled for release in February 2011. Considering Beehive's past track record, along with the strength of the new songs, this band is poised and ready for ground breaking success.

Lyrics

Small Face

Written By: Beehive

Lady Grace
What a waste
Wash it off your hands
You hold it all inside
Fake nothing but your pride
What else do you hide?
I know what you've been taking.
It’s gone- your eyes are vacant!
Don't know which way we're going-
Stop now these lies are showing-
But its all that you want
and you want it to stop-
But you cant get enough
–All or None-
Take it all and it’s gone-
Put another one down
-My friend-
-Chorus-
She's got a small face living in the palm of her hand
But there are land mines waiting for her confident stand
And there are all these people, but they can't understand they don't understand-
They're fuckin crazy-
She's got a small face living in the palm of her hand
But there are land mines waiting for her confident stand
She knows all these people, and they can't understand they won’t understand-
They're fuckin crazy-

Time it seems to move so slowly-I know you feel cold and lonely-
Time it seems to move so slowly-I know you feel cold and lonely-

But its all that you want
And you want it to stop
But you can't get enough
-All or none-
Take it all and it’s gone
Put another one down
-My friend-

-Chorus-
Crescendo!
-Final Chorus-
(Time it seems to move so slowly…..)

Better than Lies

Written By: Beehive

It’s Better than Lies- that you don't know what you can't see is what you show- you only have to try to believe that i won't run I won't desert you baby-

I am numb to how this feels a broken heart has got to heal I can't hold it all inside I can't keep it baby- Losers find what others steal there is no place for us to heal put up a wall with a garden inside -You can't get near it no way.
It’s better than lies that you don't know what you can't see is what you show. you only have to try to believe that I won't run. I won't desert you baby.
I'm not listening to you now. I am hiding safe and sound. You can't touch but you can see that I won't run I won't desert you baby.

Oh My God Are you for real?! After all the hearts you steal? I am safe here on my own – a private garden hazy- There are all these wounds to heal- burned but wiser- That’s what’s real- take it for granted this refuge in time- you can’t heal me- maybe-

It’s better than lies that you don't know what you can't see is what you show. you only have to try to believe that I won't run. I won't desert you baby.
I'm not listening to you now. I am hiding safe and sound. You can't touch but you can see that I won't run I won't desert you baby.

Pretty Little Thieves
Got your back side
Pretty Little Thieves
They Want Your Love
Pretty Little Thieves
Come and Get It
Pretty Little Thieves…

Go Inside Outside
Out through the backdoor
Inside Outside
Out through the back
It’s just when you start looking in the other direction
It’s just then that you realize that you’re under attack!

Pretty Little Thieves
Got your back side
Pretty Little Thieves
They Want Your Love
Pretty Little Thieves
Gonna get it!
Pretty Little Thieves

Inside, Outside
Over the trap door
Inside Outside Outside
Over the Gap
It’s all the things they tell you just to get your attention
You think these things will kill you but it’s holding you back

I know that you’ve encountered
That saint that steals with lies
A paradigm of losers that cripple and counter
But don’t heed their own advice!

Pretty Little Thieves
Sell you Sunshine
Pretty Little Thieves
They Want Your Love
Pretty Little Thieves
Gonna take it

Out Of Here (One Day)

Written By: Beehive

All the Ways that you Never Loved me
All the Ways that I wondered why
All the Things that you held above me
How I wish that we could have tried

-Chorus-
So I've said
oh baby we'll get out of here one day
and all I've read
all the things you do will come back to you some day
so I've said
Oh baby we'll get out of here one day
so- I know-
That all the things you do will come back to you some day

Crystal clear
but it's never easy
I finally found a place to hide
duck my head down under the water
Ignore the fact that I didn't die!

-Chorus repeat-

~Middle 8~
Vocal Harmonies ~La ah la la~

Crescendo!
Final Chorus!

The Rift

Written By: Beehive

-Chorus-
You wanna be a star-
You all know who you are
You wanna make a scene
I know you want to
You wanna preach and scream & get down on your knees
You want some inner peace-
I know you want to-

You take what you want and keep what you give-- it's all down hill my friend-
You take little pills and then live a lie so you look young and fit-
Buy fancy things and play with your rings and judge from a high post bed
You break your spine and drink some wine but your just not right in your head

-Chorus-

Shedding a light on something that you led me to believe was true-
Shedding a light on something- all the roads lead back to you-
Shedding a light on something –All along I can't be strong-
Shedding a light on something- How could this have all gone wrong-?

Above you- and all the things you do -Above you –but all the words you said were true-

It's one, it's two, It's lucky seven-
Your all assured a place in heaven
but first you need to understand that god is not a healthy man-
it burns it stings and comes and bends- –
It stays with you until the end- it's stuck with pins it's Medicine-
This war is just addiction.

You wanna preach and scream
You want some Inner Peace
You wanna Make a scene
I know you want to-
You wanna be a star you all know who you are
but no one's listening to me and my Monkey!

Love I Know

Written By: Alethea Eichhorn

Well I just came down about an hour ago
And the love I need is deep in my soul.
Well it's partly you and it's partly me,
And if we're lucky then it's something that we'll live to see.
I don't mind saying life is sometimes hard.
I can't disagree with being deeply scarred.
The difference that I see is that it takes some will
to stand totally alone marching up over the hill.

To the Love I Know - The Love I Know In You and Me.

When I was younger I would dream of the day
That I could see the blue sky and push my demons away...
How things would be different and happen on their own-
Never be accountable for things I've shown.
Always free thinking, but I can't blame you.
I answer to myself for all the things that I do.
I want to see the future standing hand in hand-
But I will never be silent when I am taking a stand
-For-
The Love I Know- The Love I Know-
The Love I Know- In You and Me.

Sharp shooting in your mind for this time –
The fruit is growing badly on the vine from inside-
I never noticed when I swallowed the pill
That the terror that I see reflected my own ill .
Now I won't battle for the gold I own-
but if I have to action to protect my soul –
It's bound to make you crazy that I'm willing to die
For the love I have to offer and my freedom of mind
-and the-
Love I Know - The Love I Know- In You and Me-

Garden

Written By: Beehive


Look at how the garden's grown we passed away while you stood there thinking.
Look at how the garden's grown there is no shame in a new beginning.

Back in the garden of eden Ellen picks those berries she hands them off to Cecilia. Back in the garden of eden Ellen's going crazy- she passes off to you: "Keep them for your kitchen my friend and let them ripen in your love light"

Look at how our gardens grown - we passed away while you stood there thinking- look at how our gardens grown there is no shame in a new beginning.

Back in the garden of eden where it's warm in winter- they're making plans for Cecilia. I feel this memory like a sliver stabbing inward- a thorn inside my shoe.
Feelings that I thought were buried - are dancing shadow pictures of you.

Look at how our gardens grown- we passed away while you stood there thinking- look at how our gardens grown there is no shame in a new beginning.
Look at how our garden's grown we passed away do you think your winning? Look at how the gardens grown there - is no shame in a new beginning.

In a dream In a dream...- In a dream I am as warm as morphine- singing softly strong as concrete- as I wrestle my way back to this- I find the dream has slowly slipped away...

Look at how this garden grows we passed away while you stood there thinking.
Look at how the garden's grown there is no shame in a new beginning.

Hound Dog

Written By: Beehive

V1
Here come ol’ hound dog,
well I can hear him bark away.
Here come ol’ hound dog,
Well I can hear him tryin’a say.
Old man in the woods come down
Gonna take this farm away.
Old man in the woods come down
And you know he’s here to stay

V2
Well this old man came to make me a bet I said, this my friend I can’t stick to yet
I got my acres of land and the woman I love
Tell me do you believe in a heaven above.

Well it came to be, on that next day
That my barn burned into hell.
The sky above , it was red as love
There was desert sand in my waterwell

Now the one I love has deep blue eyes-they done turn to a deeper grey

She left in the morning
She left with no warning

Well when the flames cooled down
That’s when I lost my head
I’m gonna find that man
I’m gonna shoot him dead
I got my new best friend and it’s a .45

I won’t leave that man alive

Well when I saw him there
It was plain as day
That’s when I took my gun
And then I took my aim

Then I pulled the trigger
What did I see?
But I was standin’ in front of an old Oak Tree

Old Oak Tree

Love that You Used to Do

Written By: Beehive

-Chorus-
Just give me some time and give me some room
Or
Give me that love that you used to do
Get out of my life
Or
Hurry Back Soon
I just want that love that I’m used to

Stop wasting time, make up your mind
You’ve got your secrets and I’ve got mine
A tainted smile, won’t hide the lies,
Cause I’m no fool for the stars in your eyes!

-Chorus-

This Chill inside just makes me cry
Something’s got to give cause I can’t try
Your silly games- no nothing’s changed
Nothing’s ventured and nothing’s gained

-Chorus-

Now I don’t really care what you say or do
I’m spent my precious time waiting here on you
I got to let you know that the time has come
You can play around- but I’m moving on

-Final Chorus-
