Biography

Corcovado can be found somewhere along the path where dream pop, noise pop and indie rock might intersect.

Corcovado is at times reminiscent of the Pale Saints, Seely, My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth. Their lyrics and music are challenging and subvert traditional pop/rock song structures. Their songs contain intricate patterns of guitar paired with loud, reverb drenched feedback woven with breathy female vocals over driven bass lines and precision drumming bound together by a reliance on sonic texture, both in terms of instruments and vocals.

Their live performance carries with it an honest and delicately raw distinction. Through bells, guitars, bass, and drums they create a sound that so many can’t even achieve synthetically.

As visual artists Corcovado bring a D.I.Y. style of production to their merchandise from handmade t-shirt designs, bags as well as their debut EP giving as much life to their merchandising and packaging as they gave to the creation of the music it represents.

Influences include Sonic Youth, The Pale Saints, June of 44, Guided By Voices, Blondie, The Cure, Interpol, Blonde Redhead and a variety of musical artists specific to individual members bring a diverse and unique mix of sound and style to Corcovado's music.

Lyrics

Biology of Bees

Written By: Tina Louise

Wish for None
Like the first one
Day in the sun
As one

Ooh Fall in Love
Fall in Love

Leave your sweater on the floor
Birds & Bees are at the door

Ooh Fall in Love –

Love for one
Lone to succumb
Daring and Dumb
Laying in the sun
As One

Ooh Fall in Love
Fall in Love

Leave your sweater on the floor
Birds & Bees are at the door

Ooh Fall in Love-

(Break)

Ooh Fall in Love
Fall in Love

Leave your sad and low approach
Squint your eyes and just let go

Ooh Fall in Love-

Love for some
Basic and Plumb
Lean to the sum
Safe in the Sun
As One

Ooh Fall in Love
Fall in Love

Leave your sweater on the floor
Birds and Bees are at the door

Ooh Fall in Love-

Care for None
Like the first one
Day in the sun
As one

Fear Her Minor Smile

Written By: Tina Louise

It’s like the sea
A short story
They both agreed to vigor covering

Paralyzed
Paralyzed
They were spies
Paralyzed

It’s like the time
You saw her face
Claustrophobic gaze
Her pearly pinkish ways

(BREAK)

Claustrophobia
Claustrophobia
Claustrophobia
Tiny ladybug
Left her on the run

Just yesterday
The spies they heard her say
It’s like the sea
A short story

Chemistry of Spiders

Written By: Tina Louise

There’s a Spider in the light
Slowly, Slowly, swaying in and out of sight
There’s a Spider in the light
Slowly, Slowly swaying in and out of Sight ~

Pressed against the wall
So small

Then I hear you call
From down the hall
I hear

There’s a Spider in the light
Slowly, Slowly, swaying in and out of sight
There’s a Spider in the light
Slowly, Slowly swaying in and out of Sight ~

Kiss you in my head
See red

Then you call again
Run run into my bed
Caught me in a web

BREAK

There’s a Spider in the light
Slowly, Slowly, swaying in and out of sight
There’s a Spider in the light
Slowly, Slowly swaying in and out of Sight ~

Beat is in my heart
Hear the spark

Voice in the dark
Beat in my heart
Your the spark

As the Spider in the Light
Slowly, Slowly swaying in and out of Sight ~
