With influences ranging from The Mars Volta to Billie Holiday, Selfawarewolf is a combustion of dynamic, high-energy sounds. Our foundation showcases progressive elements, while remaining true to our Southern jazz roots, and incorporates theatrical interpretation into our live performance.

Biography

Selfawarewolf is a band based in Lafayette, Louisiana and made up of four players: Cameron Coatney on the drums, Seb Hillis on guitar, Derek Stanford on bass, and Sydney Horn singing vocals. We characterize our genre as progressive neo-psychedelic jazz rock. Our live performances are the aspect of playing music that we find most fulfilling. By incorporating improvisational and theatrical pieces into our established set of original songs, we are able to provide our audiences with an experience that cannot be replicated. We have had the opportunity to share bills with bands, such as Andrew WK, Bonerama, Zorch, and Tera Melos. We look forward to being able to bring our music to as many people as possible. The cochleas will be ours.

Wake Up

Written By: Sydney Horn

wake up
eyes mouth ears all sewn shut
use my fingers to pull the strings
bite my tongue as i break the seams
wake up
eyes mouth ears all sewn shut
wake up
eyes mouth ears all sewn shut

badadapba badap buh badada du dadu
badadapba badap buh bada
badadapb badap buh beaded du dadu
badadapba badap buh bada

bones crunch beneath the stone
a hidden briar my eyes able to roam
faded memory of your face
leaving my carcass in the depths of this place

badadapba badap buh badada du dadu
badadapba badap buh bada
badadapb badap buh badada du dadu
badadapba badap buh bada

shallow breath as the rock drops
once i crawl away imprisonment stops
until i am able to build up the strength
i'll be here in the dark
left to think

wake up
eyes mouth ears all open wide
wake up
eyes mouth ears all open wide

Thanksgiving

Compliment

lillith and mary
quarrel inside me
if you could hear what them voices said
i'd be better, better off dead
you know it all, you just haven't learned it yet
won't fall for long with your most dangerous assett

then my head starts turnin' like the siren i am
callin' all the sailors to the water from the land
cause baby baby i'm losin' my mind
nobody's revealin' any signs
won't arrive at what i'm tryin' to find
cause baby baby i'm losin' my mind

lillith and mary
cackle inside me
if you could hear what them voices said
i'd be better, better off dead
the only way you'll be remembered
is when you let your mind dismember

then my head starts turnin' like the siren i am
callin' all the sailors to the water from the land
cause baby baby i'm losin' my mind
and nobody's revealin' any signs
not sure what i'm tryin' to find
cause baby baby i'm losin' my mind

lillith and mary
cradle inside me
if you could hear what them voices said
i'd be better, better off dead
we're all born like eleanor jane
swimming in the womb without a name

then our heads start turnin' like the sirens we are
callin' all the sailors from the water to the bar
cause baby baby we're losin' our minds
and nobody's revealin' any signs
won't arrive at what we're tryin' to find
cause baby baby we're losin' our minds

La Muerte de las Palomas

Written By: Sydney Horn

grandpa had a cage full of doves
whom he visited every day
showering them with seed and love
who knew they'd come back one day

oh the little palomas
so handsome and so free
oh the little palomas
stealing glances from he
oh the little palomas

blonde latino girl dropped in
beautiful as sin
curiosity killed the cat
should have left her where she sat
just didn't know right from wrong
should have known all along

oh the little palomas
so handsome and so free
oh the little palomas
stole a part of me
oh the little palms

took daddy's forty five from his drawer
shot her down from the sky onto the floor
cleaned the insides
dragged her down the hall
took a nail and hung her on the wall

oh the little palomas
so handsome and so free
oh the little palomas
now i can see
oh the little palomas

I Now Know I Know Now

Written By: Sydney Horn

she allowed gepetto to push her around
stand up, dance around, stay still, sit down
open your mouth
don't talk back
touch this
taste that
ahhhhhhhhhh

gepetto, god who created man, oh
and the land of the autonomously damned
tied humanity's heavy debts
to the armies of the marionettes
marionettes marionettes marionettes marionettes

puppet master, how does it feel to create a reality that appears so real?
puppet master, how does it feel to create a reality that appears so real?

see my dream escaping me, time and sand slip through my hands
see my dream escaping me, time and sand slip through my hands

i just have to find god and freak out
everything else will work itself out
when you recognize only you have control
is the day you free your mind, body, and soul

i just have to find god and freak out
everything else will work itself out
when you recognize only you have control
is the day you free your mind, body, and soul

see my dream approaching me
time and sand pyramid in my hands
see my dream approaching me
time and sand pyramid in my hands
