Biography

We currently in pre production on our new CD. It will be our third full length to be released in the fall of (2007).

This past year was a busy one for the band with regular dates in NYC, and all over Long Island and headlining shows at the outdoor Chapin Rainbow Theatre in Huntington, Long Island. They also played a performance for the nationwide Verizon FiOs Festival (which had a corresponding web video contest online for the song "Gasoline"). The band was a featured performer for Fleet Week at Central Park Summerstage in NYC, and their most recent history has brought them several TV and radio appearances in support of their Summer-Fall (2005) east coast tour including a taping of an episode of the MTV show "Boiling Points". They were also chosen as a Sponsored band by Sam Ash Music Stores.

More past gis include playing to 13,000 sports fans as between period entertainment at a New York Islanders NHL game, then played a sold out engagement with Something Corporate and another with Gin Blossoms. They were also semi finalists (top 20 out of 1000's of entries nationwide) in the National "Be A Radio Star" Competition where they recieved airplay in rotation at Z100 radio in NY in addition to a nationally broadcast radio interview with Elvis Duran from the Z Morning Zoo and Actress Amanda Bynes. They were prominently displayed on Newsday.com's Impulse nightlife section as the subject of a skit with the comedy series The Slack Pack.

Our vocal harmonies are what sets us apart from other bands. Our motto when describing our music is "music with a message."

Lyrics

Next to You

Written By: Iridesense

I didn't know if I was right, or if I was wrong, but I knew I was strong. I knew that the things that I might do, might not make sense to you.
Sometimes I need to reassure you, that I really do adore you. I'm losing me vibe, I just wanna feel like I'm alive. You gotta cut the conversation, its all in your imagination cause I wanna be right next to you.
I didn't know if I was true or I was with you, but I knew I was trusted. I knew every time I smiled, you think I was wild, and then I be busted.
Sometimes I need to reassure you that I really do adore you.
I'm losing my vibe I just wanna fell like I'm alive. You gotta cut that conversation, its all in your imagination cause I wanna be right next to you.

Gasoline

Written By: Iridesense

All rise put your right hand over your heart. Pay attention to what you start and always be true to your heart, true to heart.

If I could think just like Davinci or paint just like Van Gogh
I’m telling you if I could write like Dylan or look like Marilyn Monroe
I’d lead like Washington and you’d hear what I’d say
If I was bright like Edison then would you let me lead the way

Why must I almost scream?
To even be seen
It’s playing me like a movie screen
I think I need some Gasoline

If I could act like Greta Garbo or dance like Fred Astaire
I’m telling you if I could sing like Billy Holiday you wouldn’t stare
I’d leap like Neil Armstrong and we’d go to the moon
If I could fly like Mr. Wright then would you let me hold you tight

Why must I almost scream?
To even be seen
It’s playing me like a movie screen
I think I need some Gasoline

We’re tired of the game
It’s driving me insane
There seems to be a failure to communicate

Why must I almost scream?
To even be seen
It's playing me like a movie screen
I think I need some Gasoline
