BandAlternativeAcoustic

Our music is influenced by many different artists and genres from the beatles, nirvana, and jack johnson, to muse and Death cab for cutie. We draw on past and present experiences to provide inspiration for the mood and lyrics of a song, and we aim to make every song different to the last.

Biography

We are brother and sister and we began playing live together about a year ago. We were playing covers until we decided to write some originals and we were really happy with what we were coming up with so we started to play them live as well. We both have a wide range of influences from Nirvana, Jack Johnson, to eskimo joe, muse, arctic monkeys, and Kasabian. These influences have given us a diverse range of ideas and a distinct sound. We aim to make our music unpredictable and to challenge the listener by making every song different to the last.

Lyrics

Sunlight

Written By: Matthew Bate

Sunlight, in my window. In my window, let it shine through. Hear me, don't look through me. let me sing to you, one last time. Hold me, don't let me go. Hold me, never let me go. Cus were home, were finally here, oh i know. Tell me, you'll be here with me. i believed in you, all along. Baby, what you do to me. What you bring to me, is all i want. Hold me, don't let me go. Hold me, never let me go. Cus were home, were finally here, oh i know. Sunlight in my window, it's the sunlight that lets me go. Sunlight in my window, it's the sunlight that lets me go. Don't you waste my time or i will waste your mind. Don't you waste my time or i will waste your mind. Hold me, never let me go. Cus were home, were finally here, oh i know.
