Square Wave Punch

Square Wave Punch

BandRockAlternative

Square Wave Punch plays indie rock with a little bit of punk and a little bit of soul, & a rhythm section that defies you not to dance.

Biography

Square Wave Punch formed in 2006. The band is not overly mannered or overly produced, they simply go out and play as intensely and passionately as possible. Major influences include The Beatles, Pavement, and Elvis Costello. From that list, one can gather that there is a strong emphasis on melody and lyrical content. The songs are satisfying to hear live because of the band members' musicianship, and the music continues to satisfy when fans take the EP out and give a listen at home.

Lyrics

Alice

Written By: Sean Kiely

When it is cold
does your voice get real low
get real slow?

talk-talk-talk like it's your job

& when your Alice finds you
in the booth with all the quarters
will you cross your legs
underneath your lying hands?

Well I've been there before
& I had nothing
to hide behind.

When you're a mess
all your shirts are in a pile
on the floor

talk-talk-talk like it's your job

& when your Alice finds you
in the room with all the handles
will you hide your words
underneath the spring reverb?

Well I've been there before
& I had nothing
to hide behind.

When you can hear
what you say
sound like it came
from somewhere else

talk-talk-talk like it's your job

& when your alice finds you
poring over all the details
will you tell her, "no,
I'm giving up on give & go."

Well I've been there before
& I had nothing
to hide behind.
