BandRockAlternative

Killjoy Confetti, formerly known as Arcade, consists of four gals from Muncie, IN. They've been performing throughout the Midwest and East Coast since 2000. The music is a unique blend of indie rock, pop, and melodic harmonies. Their 2nd cd, recorded by Bob Weston, will be released Spring '05.

Biography

Although the girls have varying musical influences, ranging from punk to classical...and everything in between, their combined sound is accurately described by Mike Breen from Cincinnati's "City Beat" magazine. He writes, "If you took the idiosyncrasies of Throwing Muses and infused them with post-punked, angled rhythms, a captivatingly textured guitar patch-work and a melange of evocative melodies and harmony quirks, your Frankenstein's monster would sound something like four piece Arcade (now known as Killjoy Confetti) from Muncie, Indiana." - Mike Breen

Lyrics

Neer Neer

Written By: Killjoy Confetti (Carrie Conley)

Neer Neer

The rings of Saturn are wafer-thin
I don’t believe the world will ever end
Tanning is an untimely sin
But comfort exists in discipline
Oh! It’s too late for guitar playing
TV gets boring and there’s comfort in sleeping

I move to the rhythm of twos
The ocean’s alive with things that move
I move to the rhythm of twos
The ocean is alive with things that move

I like the smell of dirty hair
Freckles are divine when they appear
I have seen bodiless wings
Someday they’ll hang in my nursery
You bring me up and you bring me down
You bring me up and you bring me down
She gave up her faith for you, what more can I do?

These are the things I know for sure
These are the things I’m sure I know I know
These are the things I know for sure
These are the things I’m sure I know I know

I may not live the life I lead
I settle into habits with regular ease
You can love a pet before you love yourself
I can watch death without getting upset
Each picture makes me feel more alive
I’ll die of heart disease at 65
One of us will be left behind
One of us is always left behind

You bring me up and you bring me down
You bring me up and you bring me down

What do you write late at night?
What are the thoughts that make you cringe?
I don’t believe the world will ever end
The world won’t ever end that way
