Transfer Switch is pop punk style with simple chord progressions accompanied by head bobbing rhythms and pleasant harmonies. It's fun to play and fun to listen to!

Biography

Aaron and Pete Long started the band in 2006 as a “basement project”. They found many obstacles in putting a band together that were committed enough to doing something serious. In 2011 they finally solidified a line up with current guitarist Kyle Durics and drummer Wesley Flack. They immediately began working on writing and gigging. Still in the process of making a name locally, Transfer Switch is eager to try and build a strong fan base and share their music!

Working on their first album, Transfer Switch aims to keep the punk rock of the 90’s alive while meshing it with the more recently developed pop punk style. The lyrics are not to be taken lightly although they mainly address the more enjoyable quirks in life like partying, love, goals, and girls. Complementing the “free spirited” message in the lyrics are simple chord progressions accompanied by head bobbing rhythms and pleasant harmonies. Their sentiment of making the most out of this life and simply having a good time is sure to carry over to the listening audience.

Lyrics

Stay Alone

Written By: Alex "Pete" Long

Verse:
Go over to talk to her but she, looks away,
Wanna tell her how I feel why did I, choose today,
She's got better things, on her mind,
It seems that all I am is a, waste of time
Pre Chorus:
Why'd I ever try, to show her how I feel,
I should just keep it in
Chorus:
Side of me, I'm just another kid and,
Why should I, mean more to her than him if,
No one cares, about the lonely kid,
Just stay inside and watch the time go by
Verse:
I walk home from my embarrassment,
Should have kept it shut, kept my life inside the basement,
But I decided to take a step outside, until the sun blinded my eyes,
I stepped back inside
Pre Chorus:
Why'd I ever try, to show her how I feel,
I should just keep it in
Chorus:
Side of me, I'm just another kid and,
Why should I, mean more to her than him if,
No one cares, about the lonely kid,
Just stay inside and watch the time go by
Bridge:
Why'd I ever try, to show her how I feel
Why'd I ever try, I should just keep it in
Chorus (x2):
Side of me, I'm just another kid and,
Why should I, mean more to her than him if,
No one cares, about the lonely kid,
Just stay inside and watch the time go by
Outro:
Keep it inside of me
"I'm just another kid"
And why should I
"Mean more to her than him"
If no one cares
"About the lonely kid"
Just stay inside, and watch the time go by
