Track 3 of Dancer These Days EP


Take one down but don't pass it around. Just wear it like a cheap cologne. Still I respect your character defects for they are so much like my own. And pay no mind to the chattering of rats. Their little teeth ground to the gums. For each one's nose is buried in a rose to hide the foul stench from their lungs. No it's no so amazing. It's not the sweetest sound, finally to be lost only to be found again.They talk about you as if you're not in the room. As if you were on display like a picture of Dorian Gray. What's making you sick is the ice in your glass as it diluted your drink and it's power is sapped.

"Drawing on power pop and ’90s alt rock, the record’s seven solid tracks suggest influences as diverse as the Police, Pavement and the Shins, with the kind of expert musicianship that allows the seasoned quartet to pull it all off. Above all, though, “Dance These Days” has the kind of urgency and playfulness that comes from a band that knows its game."
