The Perms are a Winnipeg-based indie-rock group who combine hook-laden songs with sing-a-long melodies to create their unique and infectious sound.

Biography

On The Aberdeen EP, The Perms put their best foot forward.

After a busy spring writing new material, the band picked a handful of their best songs and headed into Vambo Sound Productions. The Perms goal was simple: to put all their focus into crafting arrangements that would push their instinctive writing skills and seasoned musicianship to a whole new level. The results of their hard work are four high-energy, guitar-driven songs that feature sing-a-long melodies with an aggressive, harder-edged sound.

The Aberdeen EP track-listing:

1. It's Mania

2. Aberdeen

3. The Parent Thing

4. Walk Away

The Aberdeen EP is The Perms' sixth studio album. Their music has matured but still revolves around the group's melody-driven sound. Their commitment and inspiration to creating their own original music has never wavered, and their constant dedication to improve on their songwriting and musicianship skills is clearly evident with their new release.

This band truly loves what they do.

A strong melody and compelling hook have always been hallmarks of The Perms' music, that comes shining through here on the The Aberdeen EP." - Snobs Music

"Thursday Review's take on this EP: this is great alt, indie stuff--enough said." - Thursday Review

Lyrics

Let's Not Fight

Written By: S. Smith/C.Smith

Let’s not fight
Please let’s not fight baby

If I’m bad then tell me so
But usually you let me know
Let’s not fight
Please let’s not fight baby
Understand I love you so
But when we fight I feel all alone
Let’s not fight
Please let’s not fight baby
Lets’ make up and say that were sorry

Say your wrong for once to me
Apologize and guarantee
To show your love in everything

Is it fair for you to choose?
The arguments that we both lose
Let’s not fight
Please let’s not fight baby
Tell me now if your o.k.
Cause if your not I’ll hide myself away
Let’s not fight
Please let’s not fight baby
Let’s make up and say that were sorry

Say your wrong for once to me
Apologize and guarantee
To show your love in everything

I feel so lonely tonight
I feel so lonely tonight

Let’s not fight
Please let’s not fight baby

Say your wrong for once to me
Apologize and guarantee
To show your love in everything
I know it’s hard for you to see
I’m just a guy with real feelings
So let’s not fight for once this week

Bring You Down

Written By: C. Smith/S.Smith

I don’t wan to bring you down
Turn your world all around
I don’t want to bring you down
But it seems my ways these days

Wonderin’ what is all the fuss
And all the things she’s thinking of
I don’t want to bring you down
But it seems so hard to change

I don’t want to let you down
Tryin’ hard to turn it around
I don’t want to let you down
But it seems my ways are paved

Lookin for the easy way out
Wonderin’ what its all about
I don’t way to bring you down
Cause I know I’m sure to pay

I think maybe, its cause I’m lazy,
I could be wrong, it’s been so long
Since she gave me, and her smile saves me,
It’s been so long, I could be wrong
I think maybe, its cause I may be

I don’t want to let you down,
Turn your world all around
I don’t want to get you, turn around and let you,
I don’t want to bring you down

Lies

Written By: S.Smith/C.Smith

Are you in love with her
Or you just playing her
Cause I’m just making sure
Cause she’s unhappy

How much do you love her
Enough to stop the hurt
Cause one bad song won’t hurt
And she’s unhappy

You leave her alone (Stay away)
You feeding her lies, lies, lies, lies, lies
You leave her alone

You argue on the phone
And wear too much cologne
No wonder you’re alone
She must be crazy

How much do you love her
Enough to stop the hurt
Cause one bad song won’t hurt
And she’s unhappy

You leave her alone (Stay away)
You feeding her lies, lies, lies, lies, lies
You leave her alone
You’re making her cry, cry, cry, cry, cry
You leave her alone

She said today
She feel’s betrayed
Please stay away

Repeat 1st verse

Repeat second chours
