Dream pop with a nightmarish undercurrent.

Biography

Formed in late 2009, SolarSolar is an electronic dream pop duo from Canada. The band consists of Dan Drysdale (synths, guitar, other noises) and Angela Drysdale (vocals and synths).

Influenced by 70's psychedelic rock, 80's new wave, and 90's trip hop, their music is both sparse and layered, creating a striking musical tapestry that is unlike any other. Listeners will find themselves drawn in by the moody dream pop tunes.

In October of 2010, they released their first EP, Secrets and Orchids. Having recently signed with Binary Records, they are preparing to release their debut full length album, Pilot, on February 21st, 2012 and have premiered their first two singles from the upcoming album on Prefix Magazine and The Fader.

Lyrics

I Can't Find You

Written By: SolarSolar

I'm going in to set it up
That's how it is when I construct
I'll take the ropes
You take the hook
We'll follow all the rules in this book
And what you win
I won't look
That's what you get
When you're stuck
(Climb down)

I can't find you
I can't find you
Why can't I find you
Do you even want me to?

I'll take it in
I'll hold it up
It's like it was when I was young
We will compete until we've won
We used to do this just for fun
Send them home
Send them home
Send them home

I can't find you
I can't find you
Why can't I find you
Do you even want me to?

I'm going in

I can't find you
I can't find you
Why can't I find you
Do you even want me to?

Walking Like Children

Written By: SolarSolar

Tilt your head back
Breathe and swallow
Rest your neck back
Until tomorrow
You’re separated but you didn’t know
Believe me
It’s been invented
Been invented

I’m not sure why I’m liking
This side of you
Maybe it’s just that I want to
Do it like the others and get more
Feeling too old to be walking like children
Divided by two
Talking too much when we should have been building
Propping it up so it can’t fall

Keep your back straight
Leaning forward
Best to just wait
Til you can follow
When separated best to stay at home
Believe me
We have sent it
We have sent it

I’m not sure why I’m liking
This side of you
Maybe it’s just that I want to
Do it like the others and get more
Feeling too old to be walking like children
Divided by two
Talking too much when we should have been building
Propping it up so it can’t fall
