Biography

We're influenced from everything from yesterday to yesteryear - from Patrick Wolf to Wilco, Talking Heads to The Beck, Prince to Blur , The Smiths to Rufus Wainwright right back to the Beatles, Led Zeppelin and beyond...I could go on and on. We listen to lots and lots of different stuff, from Hip-Hop to Classical -s from Ambient Techno like Boards of Canada to Hendrix, if the song-writing is good or it has a groove, we're there. We really don't care about whats perceived as being "in" or "out"...

Artists we admire always take risks while having a sensibility about their work, and obviously a passion about the music they make or made. We try and fuse classic melodic songwriting with a modern aesthetic and see what happens...

CORNER CRAZY

CORNER CRAZY
(Carolan/Dwyer/Murphy/Puyané)

Corner crazy, thinking of you- I'm only lazy as you know, and Saturday blue. Everyday from morning to night I loose my way from wrong to wrong In your sight;
I'll rise later and make a start To fight my heart. The penny the sidewalk eyed me with winked a fortune: I'm ready to cash that flash every day. Don't know why I stay, Delay in Saturday clothes: I'll be there in a day- One more day every day. Corner crazy, talking round walls The words your mazy love reveal Till Saturday palls. No amending lying down low, When I'm pretending and I know That you know, Anyway, My excuse is the night is young For songs unsung. This single apartment heart is a gaff for torching: "Remember to pray my name", then he dived Into lies - the eyes and his, but ever again I'm in love - I can't hide, Classified By your side.

A PICKLE LIKE YOU

Written By: CAROLAN/DWYER/MURPHY/PUYANE

A PICKLE LIKE YOU
(Carolan/Dwyer/Murphy/Puyané)

I watch with vinegar eyes
Your mind and what you do to me-
Though I’m a sucker for disguise
Surprise is nothing new to me.
The knife in every work of art
Is twisting deeper everyday:
I don’t really care,
I gotcha like Lenin in Red Square
 
You sang the maiden’s prayer to me
Then you gave the air to me
In such a beautiful adieu-
 
My sense of spontaneity
Gone the way of Tiananmen-
I’m in a pickle like you
 
I watch with vinegar eyes
The days dissolve into the wings:
The time for pretty alibis
And masochismo wrigglings.
The organ grinder’s yelling ‘Stop,
You got my monkey on your back!’
No need to reply-
The general’s never gonna let you die
 
You sang the maiden’s prayer to me
Then you gave the air to me
In such a beautiful adieu-
 
My sense of spontaneity
Gone the way of Tiananmen-
I’m in a pickle like you

Ulcer skies and grey hearts,
Boo-Hoo
