BandRockPop

This is a laid back group of hardworking guys. We're overgrown kids with a good work ethic, and a passion for making powerful music that is hopefully received and appreciated by your average music lover. At our live shows you'll get nothing but honest, sweaty, soulful, intense rock.

Biography

Solarcrush is a group of four dedicated individuals who have managed to create a centered rock sound that spills across the lines of funk, blues, and pop. Poignant, penetrating lyrics weave in and out of songs that may start in a funky, percussive fashion, only to explode into a gritty, Stones-like chorus. Others are driving, melodic, and seem fit for a summer road trip.

The Band was formed in January of 2005. A three song demo was recorded in mid March at Purple Mountain studios in Nashville, TN.

Lyrics

This Time Around

Written By: Mike Trimpe

an old man sits all day at a strip mall coffee shop
i wonder where he goes at eight when the lights go off
he taps his feet and nods at me with a tired look
singing songs of all the chances he never took

all the time spent waiting
all the years i watched, debating
on stepping from the shadows
now i know, for us, it matters and i'll
never give up on a dream
never give up on a dream
never give up on a dream we all say...
this time around

you asked me once, "can you help me write a song?
you know i can't play but i've got these words, it's not very long."
we never got it done but it turned out fine
you're in every single line i write

i decided not to stay
there are wolves in the atmosphere
i think i need to new elegant design...

Find Me

Written By: Mike Trimpe

mayeb someday we can take a walk and breath it might be simple this way
any other time you'd be taking it apart at a faster rate
you've been looking for an easy escape i can tell you wanna fly
walking on coals through the crocodile pit with a blind fold on...it's insane

so sublime where everything rides right out of my head
you're gonna find me there
you're plastic smile, perfectly refined
get out of my head
you're gonna find me there
where it unwinds
and everything rides right out of my head
you're gonna find me there
you're plastic smile, perfectly refined
get out of my head

...and you're never gonna find a way to me
you insist that we stumble down the hall
building walls where they never used to be
it had you fearing salvation wasn't free
having faith while you're dying in your bed...

Something More

Written By: Mike Trimpe

didn't realize there was so much more to find
couldn't get this fix somewhere else or another time
i could wear a suite and drive an SUV
everything could turn out right

there's not much that i have built for us
and i might be acting like a kid
these cold months can be so dangerous
today it's warmer than it's been

do we really need another mystery
seems we've packaged them and sold them for a fee
did you picture this when you laid down to dream
we're flying high by the t.v. light in the bars and the factories

there's not much that i have built for us
and i know i'm acting like a kid
these cold months can be so dangerous(there's a gulf stream wind)
today it's warmer than it's been

and there's sunlight
on my door
shining through the failures from the north
past the skyline falling on my porch again
this new parade has brought me something more
(i'll find it all this time...)
