Biography

Psychedelic, indie, punk, power pop started in 2008 by two unemployed but musically curious Brooklynites with post-doctoral degrees in deferred student loans, skateboarding and couch-surfing.

With a van named Ron Burgundy and a grassroots team of interns, they set out cross country in '09 playing over 150 shows including fests like SXSW, NXNE and MidPoint. Stopping along the way, they recorded their debut full-length with Jeremy Ferguson at Battle Tapes in Nashville TN (JEFF The Brotherhood, PUJOL, Turbo Fruits).

Since wrapping up a 22-city nationwide tour in September 2011, they've begun work on their next release tentatively set for fall 2012.

Lyrics

Migraines & Sheep

Written By: M. Santana

why awake / are we the only ones / staying up late / staying up late / is this day already gone / or does it always end this way / a sunset setting without a sun / is that you / you / on the screen / that I see / or is my machine becoming more like me / more like me / wide awake / is the real / really that far away / I'll run if you are willing to wait / if you are willing to wait / I'd count every minute in between / a million migraines and sheep / to feel your fingertips through this screen / through this screen / or is my machine becoming more like me / more like me / is it really that far away / I'll run if you are willing to wait / willing to wait / willing to wait / willing to wait / I'd count every minute in between / a million migraines and sheep / until my machine becomes me / or I become my machine / is the real really that far away / I'd run if you were willing to wait / willing to wait

Panic Rooms

Written By: M. Santana

temporary / only temporary / isn't that what you were always saying / always saying / temporary / like street signs always changing / or down always uptake inhibiting / or always changing / like crowded rooms with walls that move / that move / that move / buy me shoes / a new suit / a new suit / a new suit / temporary / but more than ordinary / pastels and serotonin levels / so sanitary / these secrets I'm always keeping / from myself but never anyone else / in panic rooms with walls that move / that move / that move / buy me a suit / some new shoes / new shoes / new shoes / like you're always saying / like you're always saying / always saying / maybe / it goes down better without coating / better without coating / like you're always saying always saying / maybe it goes down better without coating / better without knowing / better without coating / better without showing

Weathermen

Written By: M. Santana

hello / is this where you said to meet / me waiting / click / click over / it's over / a quarter past / blurry crowds lost and found around me / in and out of the cold / so anonymously / tired eyes tracing lines of buildings with / sub zero visibility / out and back in / fair weather friend / is this when / when the wind blows / hello / where did you go / the outlook / is cloudy again / with a chance of showers / rolling in / along with / condensation of imaginations / out from under the covers / of love letter dreams / and torn umbrella seams / blown inside out by the wind / along with all you thought / all you thought of me / I swear / I swear / the weatherman's got it in for me / in for me / I / I haven't seen the sun in weeks / I swear / swear / the weatherman's got it in for me / in for me / I / I haven't seen the sun in weeks / the sun in weeks / the sun in weeks / out and back in / fair weather friend / is this when / when the wind blows / out and back in / fair weather friend / out and back in

Dear Daylight

Written By: M. Santana

dear hourglass / I lost track / upside down in my hand / in my hands / dear fistful of sand / I threw over my shoulder / can we still be friends / can we still be friends / dear AM time / gone before I rise / these hours all seem darkest just before the light / dear cell phone / signal fires / offered up to the gods / of chemical odds and ends / can we / at least make amends / or maybe just lie / and say this moment's not passing us by / cause your stained glass ghost / eyes without soul / making talking to you / just like tuning into a talk show / daylight you're just a disguise / put on / put on / by the night / means that never make / themselves worth the ends / my acrimonious ends / acrimonious ends / edit erase and then start again / again and again and again and again / daylight you're just a disguise / put on / put on / by the night / means that themselves worth the ends / can we still / be friends
