about

no-fi tape is somewhere between an ep and a preview of our new album

we're not sure when our album’s coming out, but since we play these songs at our shows we figured it'd be good to have them online somewhere.

these are alternate "lo-fi" mixes of some of the songs that will be on our album.

Track Name: No-fi Tape
played you my no-fi tape
you asked if it sounded like this by mistake
i said no! it was an intentional aesthetic
you smiled and walked away
played you my no-fi tape
thought if you heard it you’d be amazed
guess i was right to be afraid
you stood up and walked away

so here
i am
alone
in my room
my songs distorted from
the speakers
and here
i am
missing
you
listening to tape hiss
you thought sounds like shit

i saw it in your face
the moment you realized my song sucked
i wonder if you showed it by mistake
i wish i was looking away

if only i wasn’t looking that way
i wish i was looking away
if only i wasn’t looking that way
i wish i was looking away
Track Name: Ideal
every morning i brush my teeth
try to ignore my feelings
i need to stop making promises
i’ve been doubting my honesty

every time i walk through those doors
i’m letting myself down
every day i feel smaller
as i waste a thousand hours

i wanna say everything’s okay and not be lying
i wanna explain the events of my day and not be bored out of my mind

but i guess i should give in
admit that i’m nothing
maybe to find my ideal self i need to
catch up on all the shows

take my exit on the way to work
maybe next week i won’t make the turn
i can ignore the world at a resort
keep finding new forms of bored

i wanna say everything’s okay and not be lying
i wanna explain the events of my day and not be bored out of my mind
i wanna say everything’s okay and not be lying
i wanna explain the events of my day and not be bored out of my mind
Track Name: Keep
why do i bother waking up when
my life is running out
and the clock keeps spinning spinning
why do i bother with love when
my life is not a fucking romantic movie
why do i bother sleeping when
my dreaming wakes me up
i grasp my pillow tightly
it’s soft and cold like
you

i will always be in love with
someone who
doesn’t want to be with me
i will always love you
even if you never dream about me

i sit and watch a movie
it costs more than i’ll ever see
i sit and listen to music
better than anything i’ll ever make

but i keep on living
and i keep dreaming

i will never be in love with
someone who
needs to be with me
but i’ll always love you
even if you forget about me

ba ba ba na bah dah
Track Name: Eternal Summer (no outro)
spent june somewhere between on time and late
not talking to friends cause i’ll only complain
wasted july between high and sleep deprived
trying to forget my life
i miss my youth, i miss when kissing was cool
playing video games till dawn- now i’m barely holding on
bored by nine-thirty on monday
i find my friends at the bottom of a bender (we’re waiting in line)

remember love?
remember when summer was fun?
now I can’t tell
if it’s begun
remember pain was
fleeting as a summer crush
now let me know
when it’s done

the sun in the sky but my world is never bright
lately i’ve stopped going outside
i remind myself that earth isn’t constantly overcast
i remind myself it can’t be night forever (to mixed results)
give me something i’m not used to; i want mud on my shoes
can’t always be satisfied, at least i tried
thought i turned my life around
but everything looks brighter in a burning house

remember love?
remember when summer was fun?
now I can’t tell
if it’s begun
and one day this pain will seem
silly as a summer crush
just let me know when that time comes
ohh ohh oh
Track Name: Expectations (shorter outro)
you seemed better after a long night of drinking
when my face was numb and my ears weren’t ringing
now i’m half up at eight a.m.
wishing you weren’t in my bed

you could be perfect if you were someone else
but you’re still her
and you’ll never be more

you should see me when i’m alone
i bet afterwards you’d leave me alone
i can’t help but to smile
fucking up has always been my style

you roll on me
say lets get some breakfast
but i’m tired i’m drunk
i don’t wanna do all this stuff
i’d invite you on a date
but i don’t have six months to waste
i can’t enjoy what i have now
expectations
always let me down

your smile will fade
but today it’s amazing
something worth seeing
like bluebonnet season

oooh oooh oooh
