zany and technically precise wild music

Biography

Hanging out with Girls in Suede at a local taqueria is, like the band's music, quite an adventure.

Over the course of an hour, our discussion hits on UFO sightings, Korn, hot tubs, midwives, Anthony Kiedis as Lord of the "Chups," smooth jazz, Nigerian charter schools, YouTube wormholes, Ariel Pink, shopping for earrings at Claire's and picking avocados with Tom Petty's daughter. It's a mirror of the devil-may-care attitude that pours through the band's music, evident in the sly, rhythmic pop on their new self-titled album, Girls in Suede.

-Leilanli Clark, the Bohemian

i see them fly away, central park is frozen and you gotta tell me why. migration, migration, you gotta take me with you and you gotta tell me why. museum, museum where nothing ever changes and you gotta tell me why. let me stay, where nothing ever changes, you gotta tell me why...take the time and love me down, never felt lost, but I never was found. take the time and love me down, sweet voice singing how sweet that sound. nineteen years old- i can't let go. the hooker the hustle, the ivy-league school daughter, you gotta tell me why, but let me hold you, let me, let me hold you and you gotta tell me why...

love, love, and i love, love and i love, love and i love. give me the eyes to see with, you give me the hands to reach. now give me the ears so i can hear and give me the heart to bleed. now john go down to the river, wild honey, locust to climb. now john go down to the river and tell me what you find. I find....

Lights On

Written By: Girls In Suede

you only sleep with the lights on, you on sleep with the lights on baby, but when i'm home nothing goes wrong, but when i'm home nothing goes wrong baby. i know your body. i know your body, body right. one day, I will learn how to sing like the plants and only children will hear me. one day, I will learn how to sing, like love and only, you will hear me...

cutting down an,an, an ancient redwood tree, i see we need a dance floor for our feet, nineteen, eighty, seven wonders of the world, i know my name, kn-kn-kn-kn-know my name name. seeking wisdom from the bottom of a snapple bottle can- a proverb from an african land: baby, you can walk faster, baby when you walk alone, but together baby longer, that is, that is how we roam

Water Song

Written By: Girls In Suede

strip down, take off all of your clothes, naked and naked in a six foot pool. close your eyes and tilt your head back, back. baptized, oh no, pool's all gone. hole's were deep, but our holes fills in- six feet deep and we're still swimming. strip down take off all of your clothes. naked and naked in a six foot pool. the pools that swam in are the pools that we live in. the pools that swam in are the homes that we sleep in, the pools that we swam in are the homes that we dream in...water it comes and water it goes. drink this glass that came from the storm. water it comes and water it goes, naked we're born and naked we go. naked, we're born and naked we go.
