"Barebones with raw emotion, Recluse is deceptively simple and clean instrumentally contrasting with emotional depth as strong and messy as a bloody dripping elbow that seeps through the vocals with levels of controlled intensity."

Biography

Recluse is a band from New York City that was started by Tim Barr in the summer of 2007. Recluse evokes feelings of deep emotion rooted in a rock/pop vibe. The combination of diligent guitar work and songwriting as well as intense raw vocals creates a powerful and moving sound.
Fed up with writing and performing strictly in the confines of his bedroom, Tim enlisted his close friends, Charles Mctavish, James Nelson and Peter Mistretta to play drums, bass and guitar respectively. They began rehearsing in the basement of a building in the manhattan neighborhood of Chelsea. After several months of practicing the band went into the studio to cut their first EP. After many hours and sleepless nights, the band completed their first EP:BLACK which officially pressed in march of 2008.
The band has been playing shows all throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn as well as parts of upstate New York. At the present time Recluse is back in the studio recording more tracks to complete their full length record.

Lyrics

Perfect Sight

Written By: Tim Barr

I know you want me like i want you
but you are making this too hard to choose
between what is right and what feels good
ah the difference ive never understood

baby got blasted late last night she was sucking on the moon
then i got caught inside myself and the perfect sight of you

I know its odd but im thinking again
nervous wreck you pull me out in the end
caught between your lies and the truth
theres a better side of this in you

baby got blasted late last night she was sucking on the moon
then i got caught inside myself and the perfect sight of you
but in my dreams are memories of which i cannot choose
lost inspite of everything is the perfect sight, perfect sight, perfect sight
perfect sight of you

I know you want me like i want you
but we have got too much to loose
so i watch as you wave goodbye
and walk on off into the night

baby got blasted late last night she was sucking on the moon
then i got caught inside myself and the perfect sight of you
but in my dreams are memories of which i cannot choose
lost inspite of everything is the perfect sight, perfect sight, perfect sight
perfect sight
baby got blasted late last night she was sucking on the moon
then i got caught inside myself and the perfect sight of you
but in my dreams are memories of which i cannot choose
lost inspite of everything is the perfect sight, perfect sight, perfect sight
perfect sight of you

Forty Five

Written By: Tim Barr

Devils in the eggs in the frying pan
the corner of my mouth starts to bleed
you said something I couldnt understand
showed me your love with the back of your hand

I believe that im worn thin
Youve just about done me in
my hands are tired from tying rope
my mind is broke from trying to cope

Theres a 45 in the back of that room
looks like I might be using it soon

Ill bury you in a coffin deep
lay you down put you to sleep
Ill feel the need to drink to your death
can you smell the evil coming off of my breathe

And when I meet you on the other side
You better run, you better run and hide
because I will hunt and track you down
Ill go beyond hell till you are found.

There’s a 45 in the back of that room
looks like a might be using it soon

There’s a 45 in the back of that room
looks like I might be using it soon

Better Tan Me

Written By: Tim Barr

one step in my direction,
then a crooked tone of voice
shallow words speaking so much truth
to what has been haunting you.

wait up for me its harder than you know,
you take what you need and then you go
but you will find
its better than you youre better than me
in all this time
you could not change
no you will not change

Are skin and bones worth dying for
or is it the secrets that you keep
get away, get away from me
i dont want you to see

wait up for me its harder than you know,
you take what you need and then you go
but you will find
its better than you youre better than me
in all this time
you could not change
no you will not change

tell me how does it feel
to be caught there waiting on me
im stuck with this thing at my heel
and you ask me how do i feel
Its better than you, your better than me
Its better than you, your better than me
Its better than you, your better than me
Its better than you, your better than me

What I've Done

Written By: Tim Barr

You know now what ive done wrong
where ive been leaving you alone for days
yes i was wrong
you lean into me
but dont you leave me with
the fighting and cursing and screaming
and the kicking and shouting and leaving
hold on now you know who i am
your the only one that understands
but we will loose
all that we've had
and all that has been
to the fighting and cursing and screaming
and the kicking and shouting and leaving
and im sorry for this
but you left it to me
to fuck it all up again and again
i tried my best but this is the end
im sorry i love you ill miss you my friend
its hard i know in the end
wait
i wont stop until im done
i'll swallow you like the setting sun
but you were off before i came
i could not let you down again
so lean into me
but dont you leave me
the fighting and cursing and screaming
and the shouting and kicking and leaving
im miss you, i love you, im sorry my friend
i tried my best but this is the end
I miss you i love you im sorry again
i tried my best but this is the end
of the fighting and cursing and screaming
and the shouting and kicking and leaving.
