Porcelain's music is a combination of multi-layered symphonic textures and jangly riffs. There is nothing too stark, or too dark, but their sound is enduring, with a universal appeal.

Biography

Expansive sound and captivating live performances are what Porcelain has founded their growing reputation on. And that is exactly what they have captured on their soon-to-be-released (June 2010) LP Everyone Everywhere. The upcoming album has already garnered recognition for the first two singles 21st Century and Indie Souls (The Last Ones) with steady radio play on Galaxie’s Rock Alternative station, and others across Canada. Anticipation for Everyone Everywhere follows on the success of their debut self-titled EP, which got the band a nod as a Groundbreaker on 102.1 The Edge’s Thursday 30.

The Kitchener-based five-piece outfit mixes their love for synthesizer-based electronic music with deeply rooted passion for the UK rock sound. The band has successfully taken the brilliance of the brit-pop sound they grew up with and brought it steps forward to something fresh and invigorating.

Lyrics

Could've Done It With You

Written By: Chad Krulicki

Everyone needs a best friend
Especially on the weekends
When you’re not around
When you’re not around
Running around with nowhere to go
Wishing we could take it slow
For a minute or so
For a minute or so

Standing here playing a fool
Alone with nothing to do
I could’ve done it with you
I could’ve done it with you
Thinking about changing the past
And not finishing last
And not having the cash
And not having the cash

Everybody’s changing their name
When mine is the same
I won’t play that game
I won’t play that game
Sitting here wondering why
When everyone’s high
So why do I try
So why do I try

Standing here playing a fool
Alone with nothing to do
I could’ve done it with you
I could’ve done it with you
Thinking about changing the past
And not finishing last
And not having the cash
And not having the cash

Standing here playing a fool
Alone with nothing to do
I could’ve done it with you
I could’ve done it with you
Thinking about changing the past
And not finishing last
I could’ve done it with you
I could’ve done it with you

This Modern Life

Written By: Adam Krulicki, Chad Krulicki, Jim Mathers

You pick me out
You mess me up
I take the time to
Watch the people change

I fight the sleep
It’s mine to see
Behind the glass
There’s nothing for me

This modern life, it gets me
This modern love, it gets me
This modern world, it gets me
It takes our time
Takes our time
It takes, our time

It wakes me up
Beside the phone
I see the door
Closing on its own

The light goes down
I feel the same
The shadows stretch
And everyone’s to blame

This modern life, it gets me
This modern love, it gets me
This modern world, it gets me
It takes our time
Takes our time
It takes, our time

This modern life it takes our time
This modern love it takes our time
This modern world takes our time
This modern life it takes our time
This modern life it takes our time
This modern life it takes our time

Black Coffee

Written By: Adam Krulicki

Zipped up tight I walked down
With my trainers on to get around
I walk through the door and she sees me
And in that moment I am what I wanna be

And as we walk by
Eye’s match to eye
She’s so familiar
I want her to try
And as we walk by
She’s so familiar

Her lipstick stained she’s leaving
With a book in hand that she’s reading
I walk through the door and she sees me
And in that moment I am what I wanna be

And as we walk by
Eye’s match to eye
She’s so familiar
I want her to try
And as we walk by
She’s so familiar

For Lucy

Written By: Adam Krulicki

I don’t know
Why loss tells one truth
Why people
Where letters on there shoes
A tag on the back
Tells the status to a friend

Like a vacuum fixation
Pulling something
Old from there heads
I’m not sorry
I was with you that night
I held you in my hand

For lucy
For lucy
Good night

I wonder
Why children trip and fall
Parks of strangers
Tired from commerce
And shopping malls

Be simple
Held you in my hand
No reactions
Felt your blood hit my hand
I’m not sorry
I was with you that night
This light has gone out
gone out
gone out

For lucy
For lucy
Good night

For lucy
For lucy
For lucy
Good night
Good night

Connection

Written By: Adam Krulicki

It’s what you wanted
It’s what you needed
It’s everything you thought
That you would never be
So make believe in
See why you’re leaving
Catch it all
For you another day

I know there’s time
We’ve got reasons why
We got to get up and try...and try
There’s nothing left to live for
Under the Sun
Till you find what you want
A connection

You gotta take the time
You gotta make it right
I’ll help your hand
But you’ve gotta make it tonight
I get around
Not to get up to get down
I’m not your slave
I’m not gonna follow you around

I know there’s time
We’ve got reasons why
We got to get up and try...and try
There’s nothing left to live for
Under the Sun
Till you find what you want
A connection

I know there’s time
We’ve got reasons why
We got to get up and try...and try
There’s nothing left to live for
Under the Sun
Till you find what you want
A connection

I know there’s time we’ve got reason why
A connection
I know there’s time we’ve got reason why
A connection
I know there’s time we’ve got reason why
A connection

Point Of View

Written By: Adam Krulicki

Don’t you wish the stars
Didn’t come out at night
Living free underneath
The sun all day
I don’t want your point of view
Can you feel it
Oh can you feel it

I don’t want
What you wanna give
Don’t wanna die
I just wanna live
Give me a drink and I can smile for you
Maybe that’s what
You should do

Look around there’s a hole
In your shoe
Symbolism for the soul
That’s stuck in you
I don’t want your point of view
Can you feel it
Oh can you feel it

I don’t want
What you wanna give
Don’t wanna die
I just wanna live
Give me a drink and I can smile for you
Maybe that’s what
You should do

I don’t know what we should do
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know

I don’t know what we should do
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know

I don’t know what we should do
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know

I don’t care what we should do
I don’t care what we should do
I don’t care what we should do

Sleep Tonight

Written By: Chad Krulicki

(verse 1)
Sleep tonight
Don't listen like a fool
Drunk tonight
On everything that's cool
My fortunes wife
Spills supper on the floor
It ends a life
That won't suffer anymore

(chorus)
It only breaks you down
With the weight
Of a thousand pounds
Rips a hole inside your chest
With the notion
That you're second best

(verse 2)
Take my heart
Cradled in both hands
Treat it well
Its the best that I have
Forget tomorrow
Cause its hours away
Stuck in traffic
On an enemy highway

(chorus)

(bridge - instrumental)

(chorus)

Paper Airplanes

Written By: Chad Krulicki

Verse:
Smoke is rising in the fields
Lovers holding on to lover’s hands
The white sheets will run red
So tell me how
Could we win

Chorus:
When you see me standing still
I’m just feeding off the heat of your body
We are paper airplanes
That are trapped in the hands that have caught it
Shine a signal in the sky
Do you think that you could
Stop it

Verse:
Ashes settle to our feet
Lovers holding on to dying hands
The light fades with the red
So tell me how
Could we win

Chorus:
When you see me standing still
I’m just feeding off the heat of your body
We are paper airplanes
That are trapped in the hands that have caught it
Shine a signal in the sky
Do you think that you could
Stop it

21st Century

Written By: Adam Krulicki

Standing still naked with friends
Electric lights fill up the shore
Feel it down stuck in your bones
Hedonism, sex, and phones

You blind me when you make me see
Everyone’s a part of me
All these drugs can change our minds
Stay out there’s more inside

This is the twenty-first century

Touch me now to lead on the night
Feel your soul alone and alright
I know this song it’s about you and me
I think it’s time that we should be free

You blind me when you make me see
Everyone’s a part of me
All these drugs can change our minds
Stay out there’s more inside
You blind me when you make me see
Everyone’s a part of me
All these drugs can change our minds
Stay out there’s more inside

This is the twenty-first century

I’ll let you in now tonight
Let’s make some love now tonight

Indie Souls

Written By: Adam Krulicki

Everyday of my life’s so bittersweet
I don’t wanna be like that anymore
 
When we go running down the hall
Where were you
You got lost behind
 
We all get away
We all get away
 
Pick up your hat don’t let the wind knock it down
We are the kings that children dream about
 
You lost the key but who needs one any way
This is the time to represent and be here now
 
Let’s make them hear us tonight
 
Paint the sky crimson
Nothing is winning me out of my time
Forever’s for dreamer’s lovers and schemers
I don’t care at all if I die
 
Damage control I don’t need you here at all
My life’s a mess but its mine so let me be
 
Hold down the rise they can’t take it all away
Indie souls are going overground
 
Paint the sky crimson
Nothing is winning me out of my time
Forever’s for dreamer’s lovers and schemers
 I don’t care at all if I
 
Paint the sky crimson
Nothing is winning me out of my time
Forever’s for dreamer’s lovers and schemers
I don’t care at all if I die
 
We are the last ones
We are the last ones
To save ourselves
