Scattered Suns

Scattered Suns

 Los Angeles, California, USA
BandRockAlternative

Scattered Suns is the kind of band people say should be on rock radio, if radio was still cool. The songs are big and hooky, with old school talent and integrity, not afraid of breaking the formula for a psychedelic trip or a classic guitar solo. Zeppelin meets Incubus and Muse.

"Who are you?"

Soul crooner and melody master Alex Schneiderman; guitar Jedi and encyclopedia of rock Brett Morris; and funky free spirit Tal Weinman on bass. Each member brings a wholly distinct personality and style to the music. The close-knit group is in the process of auditioning new hard-hitting drummers since the recent departure of former member, Sean Whalen.

"Are you hipster? Emo? Screamo?? Post-proto-sub-indie-cyberpunk?"

No. No. No…huh? Scattered Suns is not attached to any passing fad or scene. They are a zesty, unpredictable blend of Alternative, Hard Rock, Soul, Classic Rock, Psychedelic, assorted niches, and their famous secret sauce!

"OK that’s cool, but how are you live?"

Scattered Suns sets the stage on fire with raw chemistry. The group got their feet wet as the Club Good Hurt house band for pole dancing night. Just three months after forming, Scattered Suns was voted 2nd place in all of Los Angeles against thousands of bands for the nationwide FreeCreditScore band search. Since then, they have gigged relentlessly in venues around Los Angeles, including the world famous Whisky A Go Go, The Viper Room, and House of Blues!

"How do I know this isn’t a scam? Isn’t rock dead? I’m traumatized from Creed, Nickelback, etc."

We understand your concerns, especially considering the decade we have just been through. With “Light Headed”, Scattered Suns has laid out a corrective course for rock, where the music can be exciting and catchy without being watered down, homogenized or in any other way wussified. Real artists playing real music with no corporate influence! Like the glory days, but for a new generation. But don’t take our word for it, we're ready to prove it to you. Listen for yourself BEFORE you download, and pay what you think we deserve!

Lyrics

Tug Of War

Written By: Alex Schneiderman, Brett Morris

This is a runaway
This train is going overboard
It was the fastlane you reserved for getting comfortable
You took a photograph back before you knew which way was up
Now we’re fading out like a Polaroid under the sun

These days feels like fiction’s run its course
I’m blotching the distance with this ditch in the snow

This is a runaround
You’re such a liar. You want a tug of war
Cause we’re all sick of the same running in place battle that you choose to ignore
And with clear eyes open I see you in a different like
How can you justify your addiction, and feed your appetite?

These days feels like fiction’s run its course
I’m blotching the distance with this ditch in the snow

Chain Reactor

Written By: Alex Schneiderman

Faster chain reactor
Faster than a wave repeating
Many oscillations
But never too deep

We survive in spite of arrows
Face to face without a wall
We make clever observations
Then we build another wall

And why should I put myself in front of the face of danger?
And why should just watch it crashing down?

Faster locomotive
Fading fast away retreating
Passengers awaiting
Planning their escapes

But you can run until they catch you
Match your face up with a name
There’s no telling what they’ll do to you
Things maay never be the same

*Down and watch me stumble
Down and break the ends off
One more chance to start over
From the same place we fumbled

It’s getting too late
Wake me up when nothing’s wrong
My feelings these days
Makes me want to sound alarms

Faster chain reactor. Faster than...

The Comfort Of A Spinning World

Written By: Brett Morris, Alex Schneiderman

You're such a stranger
What would it take to make you laugh?
You never mentioned
That you might never understand
The way we communicate

If you wanna stop from the start
I think you’d better grab a hold of the rail
'Cause you built this moat around yourself
And now I guess that's just as well

I thought I knew you
But now I know you well
You think you're so much better off
Living inside your shell

Home sweet home
In the comfort of a spinning world

You're such an actor
Right when I see you hit the stage
Your lips keep moving
Talking to yourself (whatcha sayin'?)
Your mind keeps slipping
Forgot you're somebody else

I thought I knew you
But now I know you well
You think you're so much better off
Living inside your shell

Home sweet home
In the comfort of a spinning world

Sore Eyes

Written By: Alex Scheiderman, Brett Morris

She took a ride down the back of a corridor
She took a moment to cover it up
She fell in love
Had a way of reveling on her own
Late at night with a blacked out memory
I can’t see you’re mulling it over
City streetlight angel hovering
Has lost her glow

But you wrestle ready to roll

Recognize me when your spokes change gears
“Como Vai” I always say
Roll the dice again, if it’s luck you need
My advice is what it takes

Sore eyes, what’s your number?
You keep changing, twisting senses

Home alone you wake up stumbling
Out of focus
Rogue, you’re gonna wind up running
You’ll see for yourself
Don’t deny me
I’m watching your clocks shifting gears
All arise again,
It’s a teardrop miracle, over and over

And you wrestle ready to roll
And the skin around your neck I will hold

Sore eyes, what’s your number
You keep changing, twisting senses
Sore eyes, what’s your number?
Sore eyes, what’s your name?

Wrestle with me, despite pain
(Little darlin’)
And watch your step against the wind
Just blame these feelings on timing
(Little darlin’)
Before you know the pain
That’s the one thing that keeps you afraid

Sore Eyes, what’s your name? Sore Eyes…
She took a ride down the back of a corridor
She took a ride…

Outdated

Written By: Tal Weinman, Alex Schneiderman

How many times I’ve said before to let this instinct’s ink run dry
And then I should have locked the door when I saw you walk on by

Now tell me should I have loved you more?
You’re feeling like I did you wrong
40 times I raised the phone
But I know…

She’s outdated, and I can’t complain
She’s outdated, cause it don’t mean that much to me
She’s outdated, I wanted more
She’d outdated. Gonna be late
Sure to be late

How many times I’ve raised my voice
Is it too much to be kind
Now you’ve left me with no choice
And it’s here I draw the line

Now tell me should I have loved you more?
You’re feeling like I did you wrong
40 times I raised the phone
But I know…

She’s outdated, and I can’t complain
She’s outdated, cause it don’t mean that much to me
She’s outdated, I wanted more
She’d outdated. Gonna be late
Sure to be late
