Eclipse 02:59
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
Faith Healer 03:00
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
Tangerine 05:47
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
Utrecht 03:12
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
Sunkissed 03:36
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

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
