Biography

Bojibian (pronounced: bo-JIB-ee-an) originated in Philadelphia in early-2008 with members hailing from Washington, DC, Connecticut and Japan. Stylistically, the group draws from many different influences, at times sounding like some sort of post-modern mash-up of indie rock, pop, post-punk, classic rock, and arena rock…or something like that. Within a year of formation, the band has released two EPs, obtained consistent radio airplay throughout a dozen stations across the U.S., has been featured in local, regional and national press outlets, toured consistently through six states in the mid-Atlantic region, and has been recognized by many as one of the fastest-growing acts to watch this year.

Lyrics

Hallway

Written By: Stephen Lorek, Niles Weiss, Dylan Mulcahy

You wanna rock like you think you know the scene.
Burning like a cig, getting dizzy in between.
Shot Glass! On your windowsill, moments from your tongue.
Drinking for relief, just don't forget about the sun.

Hey Hey Hey, thats what I say.
Hey Hey Hey, thats what I say.

Well, are you crazy bout the new sensation?
Kicking down the door, put your head into the pavement.
She's got it good but, she don't know where to go,
So I brought her upstairs and I took her down low.

Hey Hey Hey, thats what I say.
Hey Hey Hey, thats what I say.
