In the Press:
"90’s power pop, meets the fragile jangly Scottish-pop sensibilities of Aztec Camera. It’s as pretty, as it is compelling." - Janglepophub

"... a cool sound, brooding 90's Brit/power pop, but born on the west coast. Their instrumentation is always on point, guitars rarely stop moving, giving off a slacker/hazy pop character." - Chloe Hoy, The Permanent Rain Press


Bitter curse
It hurts as much as it is worth
Losing sight of it
Losing sight of it

Bitter blue
It hurts me more than it hurts you
Down is up again
Down is up again
Come on

Invisible ink
Revealing every word I think
It’s not only that
It’s not only that

Pulling through is harder
Than I ever knew
Losing Saturday
Losing Saturday


Next to you
Sitting breathless in a room
A seasick driftaway

Then you drew on me
A vulgar Bic tattoo
That I could wash away
But I couldn’t wash away

The writing on my skin
Where do I begin?
How can I explain
An imprint so arcane?
