The Hectors

BandAlternativeRock

"All indie-joyful bubbles of Britpoppy gaze popping on waves of Pavement-Youth distortion. Bass and drums roll steady, grooving under the crush and glitter of the guitar, while the female vocals rise above, dynamic and controlled against the oceanic rush." - Big Takeover

Biography

The Hectors are from Los Angeles.

The Hectors write and perform songs about geeks ("Cold Star"), thugs ("Carol and Sanford"), slackers ("Proof of Sale") and dreamers ("I Drove All the Way from Bridgeport to Make it With You").

The Hectors self-produced and recorded their recently-released 5-song EP, "Sometimes They Collide", then called upon veteran producer Rick Parker (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Dandy Warhols, Brian Jonestown Massacre) to mix, and masterful engineer Mark Chalecki (Silversun Pickups, Earlimart, Great Northern) to master.

The Hectors' EP is currently getting play on major radio stations KROQ, Indie 103.1, KEXP, as well as the influential Little Radio, KXLU, and Kill Radio.

Lyrics

I Drove All the Way from Bridgeport to Make It with You

Written By: The Hectors

This day could be one
we talk about so long

We swim in motel pools by the sun
Diesels rumble out past dawn

If you break thru, I'll go too

Night does crackle and fuzz
and I can't find you
The city has lost its gravity
and I can't find you

This day could be one
we talk about so long

We make out by old low-brow bars
Families watching from their cars

If you break thru, I'll go too

Days stream out from under me
and I can't find you
Your warm bones, timeless honeycomb
and I can't find you

If you run forward you'll pass by my front door
Leave your white man costume lying on the floor
Break the night up, inside out,
it won't fit anymore
Dig this heart up, it's tired
and ready to explode.

Chen, He is Superfly

Written By: The Hectors

The sky outside of Deer Park overflows with sounds of sky
Chen doesn't live in Deer Park, he lives in a town nearby
Hands always in pockets, looking through thick glasses
at the girls who pass him by
Chen, he is superfly

Lying in a pickup, watching tinted clouds roll by
Sipping on a forty as if there's nothing else to try
Everybody wants to hit it, everybody wants to hit it
but it's never hard to find
Chen, he is superfly

She said carry a home in your head

Everybody wants to hit it, everybody wants to hit it
but it's never hard to find
Chen, he is superfly

Cold Star

Written By: The Hectors

Cold star, I want you

Your shady driveway scares me
Your pills and Slayer cds
My friends leave your house t.p.'d
but none of that means much to me

Warm nights, deep like fingers
in the hearts of matadors
but you're no bull
and who're we kidding?
There's nothing brave
in your weird war

Move the fire
The rising tide is here

Cold star, I want you

You pass through school with straight C's
They say you live off berries
Your friend's imaginary
but none of that means much to me

Your mom, she's like a rhinestone
preserved in sweat and old cologne
And she's so late
you wish she'd come home
but when she's here
you wish she'd go

Move the fire
The rising tide is here.
