about

We're incredibly excited to present to you 'Scruffy' - the first single from our upcoming full-length record, 'Old Indifference', to be released early 2017.

For all those that have supported us for all these years, we cannot thank you enough. We're so excited to show you everything we've been working on.

lyrics

A lamppost warped below the waist
Triage of flowers and selotape
Where windshield glass and license plates
Veered away and jumped the curb into the crowd

The phone explodes with panicked rings
A dozen desperate messages
Harsh unpredictability and winter glow
Now is really not the time

Wrapped up in Christmas lights
Scruffed up and reeling blind
Oh here I am, all camera shy
Wrapped up in Christmas lights

The scarlet hue of frozen cheeks
Fresh damp seeps into everything
A hum from these electric trees
Underscores the absent thrall of where we are

Commutes through ash and fresh debris
Familiar yawns of disbelief
That shudder through December streets
Hands once held, all at once pulled apart

Wrapped up in Christmas lights
Scruffed up and reeling blind
Here I am, all camera shy
Wrapped up in Christmas lights
