Phloem 03:14
The words, these sounds You feed them to me, I can feel you Feel you in my lungs Squeezing my throat, every note You kiss my lips as you exit from me On my own breath I’m a grafted branch on your barren tree am I growing on to you? Like a parasite on your barkless bite Am I feeding off of you? I bleed your blood and I fruit your tree Every one of them But I lost myself in the sound of your voice Singing in me I’m a plastic bag on the open sea and you’re flowing into me

Not feeling like myself again Trying to remember the last time I saw my friends Sleeping in an empty bed I guess that’s the way it is when you’re depressed Anyway the room’s a mess Bombs make the loudest sound The silence is arrested yea, but I like the noise It’s bringing me some relief from all my insecurities Including but not limited to What I say and how I look and what I do Sleeping with my friends again I guess I didn’t think that through when I got undressed Well daddy didn’t love me best. Temptation is a swallowed pill The guy who got arrested said you better shoot to kill It’s bringing me some relief from all my insecurities Including but not limited to What I say and how I look and what I do

How’s it gonna feel When I try to make new friends It doesn’t even make any sense to me What the hell am I gonna say When I try to make you laugh with some dumb joke... I guess you didn’t find it funny I guess I’d rather be at home by myself Yea I’d rather be at home by myself So sad for me to say But I should be on my way i’ve got some other place I need to be Well that’s just something I say Cause I’ll be going home to sit alone on my couch but you already figured that out You know I’d rather be at home by myself Yea I’d rather be at home by myself Next time I shouldn’t try so hard To socialize it’s so hard To be cool, so sad to be alone But so nice to stay home Yea I’d rather be at home by myself

about

GS019

"The sprawling orchestral style has been replaced by a cacophonous rock aesthetic, Lovier’s vocals possessing newfound grit and blunt immediacy, the atmosphere swirling in raucous noise, as though a bell jar has been placed over the band, their previously diffused sound forced to gather into thick black thunderheads." - Various Small Flames

Pared down from a swelling septet to a duo, Philadelphia’s all boy/all girl have returned to their original, concentrated form with the explosive Crisps EP, their first recorded output in over a year.

More direct than the group’s experimental Troubleshooting and Slagroom, Crisps pairs screaming, distorted guitars with hooks that stay in your head, without losing the subtle complexities of songwriting and unusual instrumentation that make all boy/all girl so unique.

With lyrics such as “how’s it gonna feel, when I try to make new friends, it doesn’t even make any sense to me”, founding members, Nicholas Rahn and Danielle Lovier, use insularity to create their loudest, most raucous record yet.
