neonglade It reminds me of Radiohead, only a bit more toned down. It's really beautiful.

about

Taking their time before finding the right sound, Blank Brothers found themselves preferring more visceral ingredients to their songs, making their own samples and using them to sculpt and explore their compositions. The brothers were able to dream up swirling, feverish clouds of music. Polluted synths, crowded drums, and humming basslines illustrate their restless lyrical content. As an album came together, so did the concept of Blank Brothers: deidentified, overwhelmed, on display and searching for something genuine. A fresh start.

Track Name: Dollar For Dollar
I think I could have left this place
I think you should've just in case
I don't want to let your love erase all the colors on the wall.
We stood there staring.
And I can't make my heart erupt
I can gather your moments up
Don't let your world interrupt
All the kids are singing, dancingdancing
How long 'til I can break empire?
How long before my eyes grow tired
Kick the can further down the road cuz the motto is:

We're. Good. For. Nothing.

Give me one final edifice
Give me one final taste of this
It's a miracle we took all this cuz we're sinking slowly
to the bottom now.
Oh no.
No no.

If I could get it all back dollar for dollar...
Track Name: Temper
Temper tends to flare.
You be tinder, spark the flint.
I'll end up running scared, no doubt.
Crossed my line of sight
Passed on stumbling like words I fumble, looking for a fight
I can't find.

Why do i feel like I'm at the top of the building I'm in?
and I'm trapped on all sides by the walls?

Crossed my line of sight
passed on stumbling like words i fumble looking for a life
with no doubt
coded in the words
something real: MASS APPEAL.
the dreaming that you hear out loud

Why do i feel like I'm at the top of the building I'm in?
and I'm trapped on all sides by the walls?
By the walls?
Track Name: Fade Soul
You missed you missed you missed
No one else can fade soul like this
Give a look that we can't dismiss
It's your fault that we're on this trip
It's alright

It's alright.
We're a little bit more than tired
You're a little bit more than lies
You're an advertisement outside us looking in.

You missed you missed you missed
no one else can fake soul like this
no one else can fade love like this
your commercial observances
It's alright

It's alright.
We're a little bit more than tired
You're a little bit more than lies
You're an advertisement outside us looking like: "I want it now"
Track Name: Got To Be Alright
Just one more night, all you want to do is intensify the lie.
Love rattles atoms flowing back on us
We're on the rise

When you think of this city.
Whatever's gonna come to mind
I know it makes you feel like a million dollars to see your name in lights but
you made for one hell of a theory. You're about to be proven wrong.
I'll hang around 'til the clock runs down and I'll see what I should have done

And in the dark I couldn't find the fucking door.

Who am i to blame when everything goes wrong?
It changes with the day.
We bide our time 'til you and I can get out of here.

When you think of this city.
Whatever's gonna come to mind
I know it makes you feel like a million dollars to see your name in lights but
you made for one hell of a theory. You're about to be proven wrong.
I'll hang around 'til the clock runs down and I'll see what I should have done

And in the dark I couldn't find the fucking door.
Track Name: Summer Blueblood
I lucked out, I mean I –
It's not bad to be lying
I took time to make it right
I made lines through the night
Summer blueblood, winter lungs
Southern sugar, could have sung
I've been wrong before
I've been wrong before

Can I make some statement no one else can make?
I'll take whatever I can take.
Whatever isn't bolted down I'm taking with me.
With me.

Summer blueblood, winter lungs

With me.
Track Name: Uh Huh Yeh Well
Oh igniter, not a saint will see
Oh igniter, dreamer, don't give in like me

Your proposition's vague
Clientele you've painted red and grey
One more stroke and then you're gunna sign your name
and tattoo yourself a smiling face

Oh igniter, not a saint will see
Oh igniter, dreamer, don't give in like me

Supply your heart's incredible definition
Full tar and feather getup now
Covet us and take a bow

Oh igniter, not a saint will see
Oh igniter, dreamer, don't give in.
Dreamer, don't give in like me
Oh igniter, not a saint will see
Oh igniter, dreamer, don't give in like me

Track Name: Eet Yer Heart Out
You asked me if I ever dared to fall in
You have that stare when you're tired
You wanna bathe in your trials
Fan industrial fires
The drunken morning hymn
I'm immune to the second
I am family lost in kin

Eat your heart out

And now I'm broke as shit and need to patch a hole in my head
A nasty little fairy tale
Another stone to skip
Better be careful, kid
There's no room for you here
One for the best and the best were just resting
One for the best and the rest we're forgetting

Eat your heart out.

Come on drop what you need and divide your attention
Come on dance 'til you drop
And come on, I can't get out
Come on drop what you need and divide your attention
Come on dance 'til you drop
And come on, I can't get out
Come on drop what you need and divide your attention
Come on dance 'til you drop
And come on, I can't get out
AND IT'S TIME FOR WORK AGAIN
Come on dance what do you want?
Come on drop what you need
Come on I can't get out.
Track Name: Lit Up
We're feeling like:
slowly disappearing before your eyes, cut for collaging
whatever lights a fire
whatever lights the fire

and all the things we're fearing:
"momentary" comes to mind
it seems it's repeating
and all the things we're fearing fuel the fire

no
Track Name: Infrared
See the waves that carry me.
Demands aren't met on time.
Another chance for us to leave.
Another reason why.
Sea-like and shimmering, familiar ebb-and-flow from the floor into the ceiling, infrared.

I don't know who you're channelling but I like the way you seem
I miss more than I want to gain.
The sound of every key.
Open and inside out, familiar ebb-and-flow from our wallets to the billboards, infrared.
Track Name: Speak In Tongues
Count your blessings in missed connections.
Taken to the western and then weathered.
We like our spirits more watered down than not.
March toward the ocean to try some submission.
Just wish I could have my dream sequence.
I like my spirit more watered down than that.

We talk tough but would we back it up?
Would we back it up?

We follow all the lights we had mistaken for the sun.

And would we back it up? Would we back it up?
We follow all the lights we had mistaken,
and we hold them forever in our hearts or whatever.
"We're so western and weathered," said nobody ever.
We like our spirits more watered down than yours.

We talk tough but would we back it up?
Would we back it up?
We're speaking in unison and speaking in tongues
We talk tough but would we back it up?
Would we back it up?
We're speaking in unison and speaking in tongues

We like our spirits more watered down than that.
Track Name: Shookup
I tell myself I dig below the rest.
I tell myself I don't make it the best.
Something shook me up and broke me down
I tell myself I dig below the rest.
I tell myself I don't make it the best.
Something shook me up and broke me down
No pressure at the top something shook me up.
No pressure at the top someone shook me up and
Home is the moment–home is the moment–home is the moment I met you.
No pressure at the top something shook me up.
No pressure at the top someone shook me up and
Home is the moment–home is the moment–home is the moment I met you.
I tell myself I dig below the rest.
I tell myself I don't make it the best.
Something shook me up and broke me down
I tell myself I dig below the rest.
I tell myself I don't make it the best.
Something shook me up and broke me down
Pressure at the top something shook me up.
No pressure at the top someone shook me up and
Home is the moment–home is the moment–home is the moment I met you.
Track Name: Underground
Faint recognition, you see her look down low.
Just missed catching her eye by virtue of being left behind.
Oh we can't get off the grid.
The moment was roughly made by total control of id.
A rhythm above all else, we kissed with tone.

All I want to do is take my mind off you.
I don't mind being used, but I'm a ghost to you.
And if I could choose, I wouldn't see it through.
All I want to do is say goodbye to you.

A rhythm above all else climbing through our soul.
A rhythm above all else climbing through our soul.
A rhythm above all else climbing through our soul.
A rhythm above all else climbing through our soul.
A rhythm above all else climbing through our soul.
A rhythm above all else climbing through our soul.
A rhythm above all else climbing through our soul.
A rhythm above all else climbing through our soul.
A rhythm above all else climbing through our soul.
A rhythm above all else climbing through our soul.
