about

We first started on these songs 3 years ago when we met in Austin, and they’ve taken about that long to come together. James was hard at work with his band (Mamahawk) releasing an album and playing shows, while Christopher had a tour and a solo record to support. Once this spring hit, we both found the mix of time and determination to finish these songs that brought us together. We’re really proud to be able to share this product of our growth.

Thank you thank you thank you for listening!

- James & Christopher

Track Name: Emerald
you found me in the darkness
i found you to be light

you found me in the darkness
i found you to be lightning under my skin

you found me

thunder crash / unlock the latch
crimson can clasp you
colors clash but emerald lasts in my sky

you found me in a darkness
i found you to be lightning under my skin

are you afraid of the way I feel?
Track Name: Delicious
you say you’re busy, but I doubt it’s true
you play me dizzy when i come for you
this distance is delicious
but it’s making me want you so

switch lanes things change when we are not alone
these games are strange we love to play them though (oh)
this distance is delicious
but it’s making me want you so
Track Name: Drip Dry Gloves ft. Silas Green
[james]
i cannot stand how you can’t
hold me in your hand, love
with drip dry gloves

we grew up tall, cut my legs
and i fall into a dark dream
it carries me home

[christopher]
i’ve been your fool for too long
got me licking like a lapdog
at your feet

i know you don’t give a damn
you’re leaving but i’m locked on

[james]
yellow lights, streets of blue
the two of us, the two of you
under those spells i could never prove
i must admit your moves are smooth

[silas green]
six degrees of separation
six degrees of different needs
we move like ships passing in the night at different speeds
wish i could hit the fast forward on my memory
and switch you from a fresh wound into a distant history

nowadays your name is a grenade
my friends toss it around, afraid to throw it my way
what can i say to that?
infinite shades of grey that we would rather see in black and white like a raiders hat

stuck in the wilderness of cheap imitations
surface-level substitutes with deep limitations
i play it cool, calm, collected
just so i can move on unaffected

went from Don Dada to persona non grata
to a walk-on-role in my own drama on my mama
i was planning to spend the whole week at the bar
then got lit the first night and locked my keys in the car

that’s the kind of sign you see in the stars
but i was buzzing so i wasn’t looking up as much
doe-si-doe with so and so
double-dutch with such-and-such
even though we stroll the solo dolo road in front of us
Track Name: Cyclone
twist and turn as i unlearn
traverse the earth
a new rebirth is waiting
it’s tearing me apart

rotate and wait
the sky debates
churning air while burning
fate is waiting
it’s tearing me apart

cyclone
i understand
why you twist
from my hand

you’re wrong
with fire in your eyes
a love you can’t deny
anymore
Track Name: Lights
[james]
coming out here i should have known better
is there really nothing you can show me now?
are you even out tonight?

pitch black sky / your colors are elusive
but I have seen that side of you
know i wanted to believe

it’s gonna be a little while
‘till i can return
it’s gonna be a little while
‘till i have learned

what it takes to face the lights
telescope lens from inside
while seven stories high

[christopher]
been a little while since i’ve seen you
haven’t kissed your lips since we misaligned
we been walking out of time

i wanna intercept that message with my name
i’m reaching out to resonate, yeah
now every little spark alight

it’s gonna be a little while
‘till i can return
it’s gonna be a little while
‘till i have learned

what it takes to face the lights
telescope lens from inside
while seven stories high
