Biography

Busker Bros are a band from Whitby with a work ethic that cannot be matched. Drawing from various influences such as post punk, blues, psychedelic, post hardcore, and experimental music, Chris Panacci and Dan Leduc began jamming out various styles of music and one day decided they should record their work. The band later added Sean Panacci and started recording, playing shows and haven't stopped since.

Their songs draw from a wide range of influences that they are not afraid to show in their sound. You will find many songs sound very distinct and different from each other as each song will reveal different influences of the band.

Lyrics

Radio Edit

Written By: Busker Bros

They act infatuated, but my god they’re overrated, overused and so outdated say they’re loved but we all hate it
The voice is artificial, the tune is so commercial, virus spreads across the nation leaking out of every station
You got your broken stencils, I’ve got notebooks and pencils, drama queens and teenage dreams all fleeing to their conforming scenes
It seems they really dig the look, my mind can’t wrap around the hook, it weighs on my bitter soul, the lost emotion takes its toll
Today’s a new day yea today’s a new day, today’s a new day but it’ll probably sound the same (x2)

Today’s a new day but it’ll probably sound the same, just another catchy chorus and hook played over and over again and the novelty’s worn off and the expiry’s past it’s due while the rest of us turn the knobs in hopes of finding something new
But they feed us, our daily spoon-fed gossip, ‘bout some dramatic staged fight, debating who’s the hottest, while hogging up the lime light, they want to be just like them create the newest in trend, you’ll never be a popstar, but maybe we can pretend

It’s all just a phase and I should let it go, maybe it’ll burn out and die and I should let it go, they cram it right down our throats and I should let it go, it’s made the rest of us ill someone should let them know
You lost your sweet taste the flavour’s been lost long ago

Today’s a new day yea today’s a new day, today’s a new day but it’ll probably sound the same (x2)

Irish Wristwatch

Written By: Busker Bros

One experience can turn a man into a boy like a boy like a bratty little kid who shows off his new today but you’re too stubborn you won’t listen, you won’t even listen, you’re too god damn obsessed saying lines like

“you’re hot and I’m so cool” they’ll probably believe it to but hey,
“you’re cute in your weird way” I hope they don’t believe a word you say,
So drunk you’re numb to shame I hope you know this alter egos lame, you’ve really lost it, yea you’ve really lost it

I’ll be myself and turn out fine, I’ll look elsewhere you’ll wait in line, don’t expect me to have your back when you fall backward
Can’t move to music that feels wrong, you love the sound but hate the song, all fun and games until you’re left all on your own now

“you’re hot and I’m so cool” they’ll probably believe it to but hey,
“you’re cute in your weird way” I hope they don’t believe a word you say,
So drunk you’re numb to shame I hope you know this alter egos lame, you’ve really lost it, yea you’ve really lost it

you’re too stubborn you won’t listen, you won’t even listen, you’re too god damn obsessed saying lines like..

Cover Letter

Written By: Busker Bros

He's inside, where the new one's run and hide and it's just him, in his room, with a front seat to the show and he feels small, which seems right, when you're only 3 feet tall, but it's all his, he knows, there's a war to be won right outside his door

She's amused, by the world but she's confused about the dirt, and the sky, in between and how birds fly, but she still waits, where it's safe, so her dream can take it's shape and when she wakes, watch out, she's not waiting for her friends to keep her pace

When I fell and bumped my head and thought about those books I read it seemed to me it's not that hard but thoughts alone won't take me far, and when I get there I'll feel small I'll reminisce about the times I'd stay awake I'll night and day to gradually fall back down to earth

Weight in Sea

Written By: Busker Bros

He lives a wasted life but dreamed of solid gold, but now you can't live dreams when you are far too old
He ran a marathon and crossed the finish line, but now he can't go back it's all been left behind
Followed wealth right from the start, now you never dream because you lost your heart

The hardest working man could only wait to die, that silly dodo bird was too afraid to fly
They never look around to see the world outside, the desk is all they need, where they can sit and hide
Should have left wealth from the start, now you never dream because you lost your heart

A shiny house and car but did it get you far, it's full of empty rooms and a dusty guitar
Sit in your new hot tub but you'll still feel cold, your life is only worth the price at which you sold
He lives a wasted life but could've done much more, but now he can't go because he shut the door
He took the shortcut home and crossed the finish line, but if we turn back now we won't get left behind
left behind (x3)
