Biography

Common Response is a new breed of band. Born in 2003, they are a power trio that brings together key elements of grunge, blues and experimental rock to create a refreshing new sound that has begun to take the New York music scene by storm, filling venues like The Knitting Factory and CBGB. Yuri Velez (drums) and Jacob Eigen (bass) link tightly together to create a rhythmic explosion and a booming backbone for their front woman Dani Neff, whose unbelievable guitar shredding skills have been said to parallel "Jimmy Page getting poked by a cattle prod." With a surprising truth to their music that one can feel, Common Response is must see for any true lover of rock and roll.

Lyrics

The Floor

Written By: Yuri Velez and Dani Neff

And the floor is falling
from the sky I'm standing on.
I'm standing on it with these
half made dolls who I put together wrong.

I am falling.
I am falling from the weight.

Slowly folding over
the pages lag time would expect. And these texts like to allude to Alice.
I pretend they're too direct.

And the floor is falling.
I think you're too immune to slip. Riddle this,
I'm like an open casket
holding out for crippled shit.
This is it.

I am falling.
I am falling from the weight.

I've been falling for so long that I can feel it coming on.

Violins

Written By: Yuri Velez and Dani Neff

I see a face
that reminds me of mine
Changes in the weather
cause changes of mind
And worthless visions
permeate my friends.

My friends do not weep.

Drunk enough
to hear the silence
buzzing at me sideways
strings of violins.
Worthless visions
act as evidence.

My friends do not weep.

I don't want a fight.

My friends do not weep.

Landlocked

Written By: Dani Neff and Yuri Velez

We were laughing at clouds,
the water and I.
Crouched under things.
Always come around
too soon.
Brick walls and shrinks.
Seventeen seconds left...
slightly
too much time to think.

We're so false,
the floating lights
forced you to stay.
We're too quick
to fall in love,
I ran right away.

We are landlocked.

Nothing Yet

Written By: Dani Neff and Yuri Velez

Open up another pisces
all my greens are turning red.
Sentimental films and night scenes
all amount to nothing yet.

Open up another fight scene,
all my greens are turning red.
Sentimental films and night scenes
all amount to nothing yet.

Dearly

Written By: Dani Neff and Yuri Velez

Short rimmed, straight lined
glass fellow,
he shatters as he moves...
fall down

Fall down.

That which makes you happy
makes him try to clip these angel wings

Fall down

Loved him dearly
but I cut his throat from ear to ear.
Fall down.

Fall down.

Grey

Written By: Dani Neff and Yuri Velez

Easy seeping into the folds
spoil the children they're begging for mold.
Throw it away if it never gets old.
Throw it away if it never gets...

Grey people grow.

Feeling safe in your cubicle,
keep it clean and under control.
We live under wraps you know,
we live under wraps you know.

Grey people grow.

Easy seeping into the folds
spoil the children they're begging for mold.
Throw it away if it never gets old.
Throw it away if it never gets old.

Grey people grow.
Grey people grow, in no time.
Grey people grow.

Easy seeping into the fold.
Throw it away if it never gets old.

Grey people grow, in no time.
