In the press:
"The Sylvia Platters’ job, it would seem, is to entice and lure us into an electric-buzz dreamland. Whether it’s the bright-eyed ’80s americana fantasy of 'Faith Healer', the electrification of teenage heartbreak songs in 'Tangerine', or the droning shoegaze haze of 'Eclipse', these lads from Abbotsford, BC get the job done right, while making it seem effortless." – Mark Anthony Brennan, Ride the Tempo

"The Sylvia Platters have made an extremely listenable, shoegaze-y, fuzzy, album that will be right at home next to cuts by acts like The Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, or even those Sunshine guys." – Kellen Powell, ION Magazine

"[T]he band plays to its strengths of fuzzy guitar riffs and free-spirited lyricism." – Chloe Hoy, The Permanent Rain Press

Track Name: Eclipse
Was it honey on your lips?
Wish you'd take my by the wrist
I'd wear your kiss

Wasn't much like this before
Want your dress fall to the floor
I'm sure

Don't isolate yourself
I hear your every doubt

And now your love can shine
And now your love is mine
Track Name: Faith Healer
There comes a season
When you reconcile the cost
Can't stand believing
That everything is lost

I know the reasons
You fix yourself to an albatross
Descending freely
Spin off, ditch the dross

Faith healer heal my pain
'Cause there's not an inch of proof
That I'm gonna be okay
Without a sign from you

Take care to see me
Whenever you cross the wall
Lay here beside me
Take on, take on 'til it's gone

I know the feeling
That you'd much rather gloss
When you send me reelin'
Criss-cross the Rubicon
Track Name: Tangerine
Sold a lie
A smiling son
Left chewing on the rind

Thrown aside
The life alight
A shield for the real
A portrait by
A person you admire

Torn up
In the wind
Citrus underneath
Your skin again

Tangerine
Track Name: Utrecht
Met online
Connected like WiFi
Chasing oblivion
Carry your heart in mine

It's a summer job
Mending a cathedral wall
The light is dark inside
It won't hold you at all

It's just like a sitcom
Running out of episodes
Flowers in the window
Grow so cold
And I just want
To see you everywhere
Meet me by the water
Where they won't dare

Neglect your wings
In a hurricane
Thought it was going up
Not circling the drain
Track Name: Sunkissed
She moves like the sun
Oh, she soothes like the sea
She comes down on Sunday morning
This restless feeling
Spins me round, spins me round

Ahhh

She came on strong
But she went away
She was a fire with no flame
Shivering in her burning shade
Close behind, so close behind

Ahhh
