I can't help but catch the beat When you lend me all the things I want Never wished you would be mine Until we stormed that door I don't care to be adored When my cigarettes taste like you All the smokes and boozey haze Would bring you back too soon And I wouldn't mind, If you'd dip your lips on mine And get to me, It's not a chase if you're not running Is it a catch when you're falling down When everything seems right? Do you feel sick in the morning 'cause we can't see just what's shining bright When we're just chasing lights Flashing Lights, our scenery We'll sleep on the glass tonight Hang you're coat we're staying home In this nasty night Questionning my state of mind But sunshine we're a different kind I don't mind if we'll cause a stir You can blame it on the blur And would that make me blind If I try to find a way to Get back to you
It's always like fighting yourself Feeling the pressure in every eye set on you Don't wanna be real but you wanna look cool Using all those drinks to help you to run Help you to run for cover Hold on for now, I know you see ghosts Don't think it through 'cause your heart migh be cold But she likes it anyway It's always easy how the others do Was there anything to learn I didn't pass through Always with your skinny jeans and leather boots Not the best outfit to help you to run Help you to run for cover Hold on for now, I know you see ghosts Don't think it through 'cause your heart migh be cold But she likes it anyway And, I'll go anywhere with you If only I can make it on time We'll storm this mansion 'cause we haven't done for a while
Closer 05:37
Will you be there When the plot thickens 'cause you said something But there's to much noise in the club You grab my hand For a cigarette or two Is it the perfect setup For any romance with you? You are like the waves That pull me and What has changed in the morning You just had to say A word and i'd be yours I can't bite my tongue I've been hiding For so long I don't want to waste your time, Don't wanna sleep don't want to leave I just want to keep up to the beat I just want to be closer to you And I, I can't be your friend 'cause I wanna kiss your face From all the name you've gave I'd rather be your mistake Tell me if there is Something hidden Under your bed


This our first release/demo.

We've recorded it over the summer 2019 in a University's rehearsal room, in our small flats, at mates' home studios with only a few quid, friends and lots of sweat and love.

Hope you'll enjoy our first demo as much as we put energy into the whole process of doing it.

We wanted it to be summer nostalgia bops packed with memories of spontanuous adventures to the beach, holidays romances, and canicular nights out at the bar.
Eventually, it will warm your bones during this upcoming winter.
