Biography

Etta Place got together in early 2007 when Georgia moved from London to Los Angeles and joined Lilly and Scott living in the notorious LA underground venue Il Corral.

In the process of recording their debut EP 'How You Live Your Life Can be Fatal' in the club's main room, their unique sound emerged which they termed 'streamo', a mix of lo-fi, indie, and stream of consciousness emotional.

When Il Corral closed its doors for the last time in January 2008 the band relocated to New Haven CT, where they recruited two new members and are now heavily involved in the burgeoning indie scene.

Lyrics

Streaks in the night

Written By: Scott Graham Aiken

streaks in the night
i haven't felt in such a long time
lift me deep from a farm
and when the signals fade away
the world hasn't changed a bit
as far as i can tell
and it probably will stay
the same as it has always been
and au au revoir
if i can just sit still
you can't see where you are
at a crazy speed
so fast that it blurs
and time is obsolete
and i don't know if it ever will return
and if the world made you a star
i would find a place where the ground didn't seem so hard
if the world made you a star i would find a place where the ground didn't seem so hard

There's more in the grave

Written By: Scott Graham Aiken

there's more in the grave
when the fall leaves turn gray
that decay in the town
that you live in deranged
watch you rise in the style
like you got something to blame
is your heart in your chest
or is it in your way?
in your chest or is it
in the same place we checked
there are stars that still shine
when the sky isn't clear
maybe heaven sent a check
and you bit into your lip
and not your most
beautiful
could lay a fist
to keep you from fate
i hope you feel the same
just like another day
i hope you feel the same way

In the eyes of someone else

Written By: Scott Graham Aiken

in the eyes of someone else
i could be a speeder
till someone's moving quicker
then i'm not that fast
i'll keep running but
life can be so strange
and so can i
then i don't get it anywhere
my little life can be fatal
my little life can be fatal
i'm happy now
i don't care
i don't care
there were no more places
i could make my getaway
except for one more perfect sight
of whats still to come my way
i could be waiting for
the perfect time
my whole life
for that day
for the day
how you live your life can be fatal
how you live your life can be fatal
i'm happy now
i don't care
i don't care
