1.
Chronic fever Split into my veins An automative chaos Abandoning and constrained Wanting reassurance to validate the days Desolate reflection of what I've engrained.
2.
Replenish 03:17
Gasping outward Sucked into this vortex My own failed sight With a still herd and cowardice Nothing replenished Nothing replenished Nothing replenished Nothing replenished All hearts teeth stitched into pale sins, right where fade All worn thin Sucked into vortexes of fear Hoping the darkness consumes. Existence to which we are burdened kisses curses on all souls.
3.
Stretched through a tunnel unfound Perturbed masses shifting through sound They are the ones none talked about To be left with the feeling of unloved homes Swallowing loneliness Trying to cope with a failed lense Building it all. That day I needed it Needed something Needed you A lie held in crevices Crevices containing Stretching arms outward.
4.
Fall 03:52
Unhallow me Distancing between Where I'll look down If I am to fall into their hell If we are meant to fall Our love will destroy them Consuming you Consuming All efforts wither and buried beneath Couldn't gravel at the thought anymore Forgive me Destroying Forgiving Destroying once more Burdening once more Spiraling downwards
5.
Diminish 01:40
I'll write in screams and anguished dreams On a body that no one understands On a body that no one understands On a body that none understands I feel myself hung from the rafters Hung from the rafters as art.
6.
When every single day feels worse than the last, I don’t want to have to cut myself open to explain myself to you. I shouldn’t have to. I shouldn’t. And if I take my life, who would brush my hair? Who would brush my teeth? Would anybody care? The earth. The dirt. The worms. Nothing. No one.
7.
Further 06:52
Daniel: and nothing ever escapes the end and I've synchronized reactions to fall apart or withstand in turmoil. Is our youth all that we have, to lay further inward ever graceful into oblivion. I don’t want to Corners bleak So I pour them out over the sunlit floor until totality fulfilled emptiness. Arms tucked into your stomach, unbearable and unknown what follows, ever graceful into oblivion. Alexander: I've given in. I feel further from God and I feel further from earth and I feel further from all of the things the things which I should put first. ‘Cause I don’t know what’s left to do and I don’t know where’s left to go and I don’t see how life can move past this point when the motion of time is so slow.

about

"Teetering push-and-pull compositions...that blend shoegazing sounds to buff up hoarse screams." - Washington Post

"...fiercely powerful and raw, regularly building to towering heights of glorious noise." - Stereogum

"An impressive debut showing, the seven-song LP…belts out the aggression hard at times…but pads it with serene atmospheric vibes..." - Noisey

"Screamo with a sense of urgency that calls on big shoegazey guitar melodies to channel its chaos." - Bandcamp Daily

"An impressive and engrossing foundation of soaring rock melodies." - Uproxx
