Biography

Split Over Drapes is a recent import from Richmond, VA. Having recorded previous EPs with Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, The Faint) and Mark Miley (Avail, Hot Water Music), the Split Over Drapes you see today is a reunited and revamped version. After picking up new NYC members after just one audition, the reformed band is the gold that remains after being put through the fire.

Following an amazing "Welcome Back" show at the Up! Party at The Delancey, the band was promptly booked on high profile shows at Pianos, Rothko and Mercury Lounge. With their own brand of lush, layered songs and a stage dynamic that is truly inspiring, Split Over Drapes are poised to make the jump onto the national stage in the near future. The revamped band is hitting the studio again with now renowned New York producer Chris Zane (Calla, Les Savy Fav) and plan to creep into the hearts and minds of New York with a sound that is anything butÂ…

What Helps To Save The World

Written By: Derrick Upchurch

there are days when time is the last thing
that helps
me to let go
you can stay up all night and reflect upon it seems everyone but you know knows and so

i'll admit to never knowing
any higher truths
from a roll of die in a car
i didn't write an all-star guitar rock anthem
on the neon lights in the E.R.
but that's all in the past for you
they did it with taste they did it so pure

there's a base understanding
that one day we won't be back
so to burn it in our brains i'm sure we're on the right track for that
and do we cheapen it by bronzing the wounds?
no more damage on display
no more calling card entombed

Do You Know Where You Are?

Written By: Derrick Upchurch

she takes a shot
then she lowers down
her makeup is loud

she's tried again in vain
to call the children down
from the wings of things that fly from their certain sad demise

and to you all this?
did you fall into place?
silver-screen perfection to your fantasy's taste

elevator steel cold and slippery to the feel
with ropes that should have broke with her bobbing head revealed

but down for you- i'm not down for you
wrecked in affection, but not down for you

she takes a shot then she lowers down
we tried.
yes, we tried.
and to you- all this. did you lock into place?
silver-screen perfection to your fantasy's taste.
we tried.
yeah we tried.
