Dave and Evin were in a band together in highschool before migrating to the University of New Hampshire, where they met bassist/rapper/producer Nick.

The EP was recorded and produced in our various friends' apartments in Boston, while we all lived together in an incredibly shitty apartment in Durham, NH. After dozens of fast-paced weekends sleeping on floors, romping around the city, trying to do homework sometimes, and dodging parking tickets, we completed our debut album. We think it totally captures the creative urgency and tension that comes with commuting to make a record, going to school full time, playing shows, watching Dave Chappelle, working, and furiously kicking as much ass as possible in-between it all.

On it are songs revisited from Evin's early teenage hood like "Casey Beach" and "It's Been A Year" as well as more mature tracks like "Found Out" and "Part of You." We make music about our lives, we make pop music. If you don't like pop music, than you're either a liar or you were picked on too much in school. We hope you like our tunes, and we hope we can get to know you as well as you can get to know us (I mean, it's not exactly an even exchange here, there's some personal shit in these songs, you know what I'm saying?). You want us to play where you're at? You want a video of an acoustic performance of a particular song? You wanna know our favorite Dave Chapelle quote of the moment? ASK! NOW! DO IT NOW!

Track Name: Casey Beach
Your flirt was smeared. It gave me the impression that
you were playing hard, or your man was close by.
It seems you appeared, just as I had mentioned to my
friends that I was looking for some sort of girl that I'd

like to spend no more than one night with
to spite my past of serial monogamy.

You are a tad unprepared for the truth girl.
He told you he has a girlfriend,
and I'm scared that that guy is afraid.
You make the same temptation and you do girl,
know just what your doing.
It's good that I can't can't stay.

Lifeguard chairs aren't good for making out,
but midnight at the beach, there's really no reason to hide.
It's unfair, I couldn't forget about
the prettiest rope that tied me down so

much but it just wasn't enough
to let love hold up my serial monogamy.
Track Name: Found Out
I close my eyes to yours, you show me more, you tell me more.
You don't know what you want, you don't know what you're fighting for but you fight so hard.

I can feel when you fall.
I can know know know you, can know you after all.
I can be where you are.
I can know you

don't seem fine, no. I tried
to slow this time,
because it shouldn't have happened.

What I am is what you found out,
and what you found was enough
to keep you here and keep you found out,
but not so close to know my love.

I let you give me a pillow.
It touched me and I let it show.
I took you out when I knew you felt alone,
tricks that I might let you hope yea

and I can be what you are, and I am,
so I dug you a hole, and you dug me hole.

What I am is what you found out,
and what you found was enough
to keep you here and keep you found out,
but not so close to know my love.

What I thought to say
was what I thought, not what I felt.
I just got to play
music, maybe lie to myself.
Touch my music, make it start.
Just don't lose it babe,
or I might break your heart.
Track Name: Closer
Like the forest floor, when you're wet you look so alive,
dark and adorable with that gloss on your eyes.
Close an open door make a mess where I can see you it's
hard to keep up and hold back but we got to try.

Do you ever wonder if it slips
between or under lust justice be cold.
You don't even know.
Taking shots between our lips because the night wont stick, it's cheap shit, now behold,
and it's just like us, we feel so old.
You understand a part of me that
you don't even know.

You understand a part of me that
you don't even know, my fault.
That's why I love to be your cure,
or your hand to squeeze for the pain.
I squeeze back because I know the same,
but you can't tell.
I hide that's why I find my strength.

Now you're menaced by the hands on the clock.
They point and they don't stop.
If I ever feel about you but refuse to say...

All it takes to take off is to
take place where your waist stops another slide
of my eyes.
All it makes to make out with your
shapes is just a fake out.
I don't want to feel this any more than you,
then you do.

You understand a part of me that
you don't even know, my fault.
That's why I love to be your cure,
or your hand to squeeze for the pain.
I squeeze back because I know the same,
but you can't tell.
I hide that's why I find every time that

everybody wants it. If we give it to them,
do they retain?
You helped me understand but I'm still lost.
Someone you may not know knows you
with or without all your speaking.
I've become much closer to these thoughts.
Track Name: Part of You
I woke up and it was dark out,
woke up and wrote this song.
You broke in and took my heart out
at your waterfall.
It got bad enough, O,
so we run.
We are sad enough, O,
we are one.

I miss the place where your hand meets your wrist,
the only part of you I grab but never kissed, love,
the only part of you I have but now I miss.
The only part of you...
The only part of you...
The only part of you...

You talk about by past
like you left it in my room on your way out,
on a bed, my bed where I sleep sometimes,
where you sleep sometimes.
If I talk about my past, will it come back
and leave me alone.
You keep leaving pieces of yourself around,
your never gone,
never gone...

I miss the place where your hand meets your wrist,
the only part of you I grab but never kissed, love,
the only part of you I have but now I miss.
The only part of you...
The only part of you...
The only part of you...


I miss the place where your hand meets your wrist, love,
the only part of you I grab but never kissed, love,
the only part of you I have but now I miss, love
The only part of you...
The only part of you...
The only part of you...
Track Name: H.B.D.P.
My boy said:
"Listen to me, I met this girl at work, and she's been giving me those eyes
like when we meet outside of here, you're in for a surprise boy."
Excited, he went on to tell, "I saw her on Friday
of last week with alcohol. It was a co-worker party."

"She's hot, she's blonde, she's dumb. She's perfect.
She's a typical inside of a pornographic. I'm
working not to slip her mind,
and work it, work it."

I'm not done:
He began to softly laugh and said, "Oh, it ain't so simplistic.
Here comes the catch, she thinks I'm sticking around,
but it puts my lifestyle at risk"

She's hot, she's blonde, she's dumb. She's perfect.
She's a typical inside of a pornographic. I'm
working not to slip her mind,
and work it, work it.

"And that was the night that we first expressed it.
I took her aside and the laundry room showed me her intentions, yea,
and later on I wondered was it possible that she was serious.
Sucks that I'm so goddamn honest."

"Woah, I hope when she pulls out her hair because she don't
know what she did wrong to break a pair that felt it
woah, fall apart when I'm not there, that she can
hope"

She's hot, she's blonde, she's dumb. She's perfect.
She's hot, she's blonde, she's dumb. She's perfect.
She's typical.

"And that was the night that we first expressed it.
I took her aside and the laundry room showed me her intentions, yea,
and later on I wondered was it possible that she was serious.
Sucks that I'm so goddamn honest."
Track Name: It's Been A Year
It's been a year since we started this,
a thing of rocky roads, with a constant flow of affection.
And every day since we started this,
I've talked to you or seen your face and a beautiful thing has taken place.
And every encounter since we first kissed,
I've had to kiss you, look into your eyes and love
their funny shade of blue,

Cause I love you, I love you more than you know,
wanna be with you, be with you, watch you grow
into a woman ten times more beautiful,
but don't change the girl whose sixteen years old.

You always tell me, every day,
exactly what's on your mind.
Sometimes it shocks me but it's no surprise.
I'm always thinking, every hour,
all the things I've seen with you and all the wonderful places you drag me to.
And every single night since we first met,
I've traced your every outline with my fingertips
or in my mind,

Cause I love you, I love you more than you know,
wanna be with you, be with you, watch you grow
into a woman ten times more beautiful,
but don't change the girl whose sixteen years old

Or time will freeze.
You know exactly what you want.
It's me, oh it's me.
Wish you wouldn't question what you got,
It's me forever.

And every single fight since we started this,
we stopped time, sometimes you cried,
but you always forgave,
And every single night since we shared the bliss.
We've been together, together, together,
and it's just gotten better and better and better,
and better and better and better and better,
and better and better and better,

Cause I love you, I love you more than you know,
wanna be with you, be with you, watch you grow
into a woman ten times more beautiful,
but don't change the girl whose sixteen years old

Or time will freeze.
You know exactly what you want.
It's me, oh it's me.
Wish you wouldn't question what you got,
It's me forever.
