about

"A lot has happened in the three years since our last record came out. While there is far too much to say about it all in one place, we wrote this album anyway. What are the broad strokes, you ask? It's more or less about the end of the world and all of the ways that it seems to be happening, but also about making peace with former selves and growing as a person despite the feeling of global entropy. Also: strange internet versions of our friends and selves, bouts of insomnia and picking through the dreams that followed, the importance of forgiveness, and creating meaning in a world that increasingly feels like total chaos. What is the function of art in a place like this? Is anything we make going to last? I am not sure, but here are 11 songs looking for the answer. What I do know is that art connects us to each other and to our feelings and our selves. It is a liferaft, and I hope that we can all continue to put it into the world, appreciate it, and share it indefinitely."
- Rachel Browne

Track Name: Heart of Gold
It didn’t start this way, I can assure you
All your sweetness drained, you call to say
“I can see the future and it looks gray”

I’d never wish bad things for you
Mid-Atlantic stuck in the sprawl
I still got a heart of gold
I still got a heart

I’d never want bad things for you
Isn’t it enough just to know
I still got a heart of gold
I still got a heart

Skyline ‘cross the lake, crossing back home
on the holiday
I kept dreaming of cars crashing, now
I still wake up haunted by the sound

Between two worlds, sometimes the signal weakens
I met my evil self and beat her,
now the road depends on where I’ve been

I’d never wish bad things for you
Mid-Atlantic stuck in the sprawl
I still got a heart of gold
I still got a heart

I’d never want bad things for you
Is it enough to know the truth
I still got a heart, you know
I still got a heart
Track Name: In Blue
When the light comes in blue
to the center of the room
in love and useless, forgotten tunes
you hate the room but love the view

Turn it off, I don’t want to hear the sound
of a century crashing to the ground

A throwaway line
please forget about the last time
come around, Mae, just try
to see the farthest reaching arm of light out in the sky

Seventeen years ago, I wrote something down
folded it up, pushed it down into the back of my mouth
I’ve died so many deaths since then
I can’t tell you the last time I stopped to rest

A throwaway line
please forget about the last time
come around, Mae, just try
to see the farthest reaching arm of light out in the sky

We stay alive, to see the planets realign a second time
