Biography

Music can be one of the most important factors in any growing relationship. Starting in 2010 musicians Samantha Raia and Brianna Martinsen came together to create the start of a very long creative journey. The acoustic-pop duo based out of Long Island, never fails to surprise and awe audiences with hauntingly beautiful harmonies. The pair constantly played together but nothing was official until they decided that this was the ultimate goal for them. 
With an insane drive and unmeasurable talent these musicians plan to continue to make waves in the scene. 

So from this moment on I give you, Necter.


Lyrics

Demons

Written By: Samantha Raia,Brianna Martinsen

You’ve got your demons and I know mine have shown.
But you’ll sit with them lonely while I dance with my own.
So swim faster swim faster I’m sinking like a stone.
Checking into hearts as hotels: a temporary home.

But if your demons want out to play,
I won’t force you to love me, or beg you to stay.
Even though I want to say: don’t go away, don’t go away.

So here is my day plan this is where I will be.
You can follow my fingers on a map of the sea.
You’ll swim faster swim faster to what you think you need.
But little do you know, things aren’t what they seem.

But if your demons want out to play,
I won’t force you to love me, or beg you to stay,
Even though I want to say don’t go away,
don’t go away,
don’t go away.

Don’t go away, don’t go away no.
Come out to play, come out to play, oh.
Don’t go away, don’t go away.

Bloody Teeth

Written By: Samantha Raia,Brianna Martinsen

You're gonna haunt me forever
Live in my bones with all the ghosts
And I can't tell you to leave
When I know that the blood between my teeth
Tastes like you

You're gonna haunt me forever
You're a parasite who needed a host
And I can't tell you to leave
Because the way that it needs me to breathe
Reminds me of you

We all return to our favorite regret
Finally I believe you're what they told me
You cannot question what you cannot see
My world in your hands, a catastrophe dependent on me.

You're gonna haunt me forever
Live in my bones with all the ghosts
But I won't tell you to leave when I know that there's blood between my Teeth because of you

You're gonna haunt me forever, you're just a parasite who needed a home
And I won't tell you to leave, because the way that you need me to Breathe, I think it's cute.

We all return to our favorite regret, finally I believe you're what you told me.
I'll always question what I cannot see. my world in your hands is Destroying me.

(Oh x4)

You're gonna haunt me (haunt me, haunt me) x6

No Thanks To You

Written By: Samantha Raia,Brianna Martinsen

My roots they’ve grown far too strong now.
My hands, of these hands have become so swollen (callouses so hard).
With hard work they have made me so much stronger, (so much stronger).
The ground could not have kept me down much longer.

Could I have stolen back my pride?
No thanks to you,
No thanks to you.

These lungs, oh these lungs have kept me steady (so balanced and steady).
With the weight of your burdens and your guilt that you pressed on me (pressed on me).
This heart, oh this heart just wasn’t ready
For what you wanted to give me.
I couldn’t give out much more, you already broke me.

How could I stay here?
This place wasn’t mine.
No thanks to you,
No thanks to you.

Handshakes

Written By: Samantha Raia,Brianna Martinsen

Just a little bit of nectar;
Just a little bit of poison in your blood (your blood, oh).
Just a little taste of bittersweet love.

Magnifying Glass

Written By: Samantha Raia,Brianna Martinsen

Oh, isn’t it unfortunate that no one will
Ever trust, trust your mouth again.
I’m sorry that you’re feeling small,
Small enough to make your talk,
Seem bigger than it is.

You swallow letters blindly
Regurgitate all the wrong,
All the wrong words to them.
You, you’ll claim they’re true
When they’re not true at all.

I pity that you need your social magnifying glass
To make yourself seem tall.

Oh, oh.

Liar liar pants on fire
Whoever knew your attention craze was dire.

Liar liar, where will you go?
When everyone figures out you’re just blowing smoke?

Contagious outrageous,
Get away from me,
I don’t wanna catch what’s hiding in your teeth.

Liar liar, look at what you’ve done.
Who will you be when you run out of fun?

Isn’t it unfortunate that no one will ever trust, trust your mouth again?
I’m sorry that you’re feeling small,
Small enough to make your talk,
Seem bigger than it is.

You swallow letters blindly
Regurgitate all the wrong,
All the wrong words to them.
You, you’ll claim they’re true
When they’re not true at all.

I pity that you need your social magnifying glass
To make yourself seem tall.

Oh, oh.

Oh,oh

(Liar liar where will you go?
When everyone figures out you’re just blowing smoke?
Contagious outrageous, get away from me.
I don’t wanna catch what’s hiding in your teeth)

Contagious outrageous,
Get away from me,
I don’t wanna catch what’s hiding in your teeth.

Liar liar, look at what you’ve done.
Who will you be when you run out of fun?

Oh, oh.

Creatures In My Coffee

Written By: Samantha Raia,Brianna Martinsen

Well he's not yours he's mine
But you're too busy stealing my pride
And it's okay that you wasted so much time
It was yours, not mine.

But if too much is enough and I'm pissing you off it's fine,
I could retrace my steps and see where I should be by this time but
I'm fine. I'll be fine.

This could be yours but you're alright
But if you could choose would you pick my side
With so much to say could you please pave my way to
A new life

But if too much is enough and I'm pissing you off it's fine,
I could retrace my steps and see where I should be by this time but
I'm fine. I'll be fine

This could be what we needed, stop searching life for the reason, I could Be what you needed, oh,

But if too much is enough and I'm pissing you off it's fine....

I could retrace my steps and see where I should be by this time but I'm Fine
I'll be fine, I'll be fine.

Interlude I Grown

Written By: Samantha Raia,Brianna Martinsen

I’ve got enough skin and bones
To last me for days.
But my mind grows weary and
It’s my memories that pay.
I’ve grown far too fond of losing hope
And gaining a point of view
So different from the one I own;
Exactly what I need something new.
Now I, I have figured this all out on my own, my own, my own,
And now I, I have figured this is what it means to feel like I have grown.

White Walls

Written By: Samantha Raia,Brianna Martinsen

Five minutes a day, pushes love away.
And I’ve been meaning to say, I’m not oh okay.

Yeah, I’m not okay and every time you don’t realize
it’s been a month since I’ve crossed your mind
And I’ve been waiting for you to come around again.
Let’s not play pretend.

One out of two hands is craving yours.
Causes there’s only one heart that adores
the way that it hurts when you’re not around.
And feeling like I’m buried underground, saying:

I’m not okay and every time you don’t realized
it’s been a month since I’ve crossed your mind
and I’ve been waiting for you to come around again.
Let’s not play pretend.

Play pretend.

I’m not okay and every time you don’t realize
it’s been a month since I’ve crossed your mind
and I’ve been waiting for you to come around again

Let’s not play pretend, no
(fairy tale love only exists in my mind)

I don’t wanna play pretend, no
(and make believe won’t cut it anymore
I’m real and this might be too)

I don’t want to play pretend.

Interlude II Skeletons

Written By: Samantha Raia,Brianna Martinsen

The stories I could tell about my past life
The skeletons will crawl and reach ya by night
Be careful of the stories they might tell
Look hard enough and you might see yourself.
My skin has torn apart and the bruises,
seem to last forever, was in ruins.

The nightmares are a’knockin’ after the sun has settled in.
The demons they always follow and they nudge their way back in.
I have seen this coming for a long time. (long time)
I couldn’t have stopped it had I even tried.
