Digital EP featuring debut single "Hot 97 Summer Jam" off of forthcoming full length LP - Teenage Retirement - to be released Fall 2014. Also two b-sides "Doubt" and "Vices" that didn't quite make the cut but we still think are sorta kinda cool anyway.


released September 9, 2014

Track Name: Hot 97 Summer Jam
We’re reading books
We’re drinking coffee
I’m looking at you
You’re looking through me

I would wait for you all summer
You would turn me away
I would wait for you all summer

I see you stare
I watch you whisper in her ear
About the things that I can’t be
But does she love you like I love you?

I would wait for you all summer
You would turn me away
I would wait for you all summer
Track Name: Doubt
I’m glad you didn’t keep the baby
Because he never loved you anyway
Not that you gave a damn about him
It wasn’t his decision to make

But look at what you’ve done in the meantime
You’ve packed your things and moved away
And although you were scared about losing friends
You were better than them anyway

I never doubted you for a second

And even when you were an addict
I always knew you had a dream
It’s hard to look towards the future
When you’re holding hands with methamphetamine

And when you finally kicked the habit
I looked up to you a little more
It wasn’t that I loved you any less when you were lost
You were always something worth my fighting for

I never doubted you for a second

Who am I to judge?
We were always little girls with big dreams
You never let on that we might not make it out
We set our sights on better things

I never doubted you for a second
Track Name: Vices
I wait for the weather to break
This winter’s been mild but relentless
I just need to leave the apartment
And feel sun

It seems like I’ll never recover
I’ve been trying to let it all go
But I keep going back to the bottle
I drink slow

I’m trying to keep it at bay
But these nights make me long for the taste
Don’t leave me alone to my vices
I’ll break

Don’t leave me alone
