“Hold my gaze love, you know I want to let it go
We will stare down at the wonder of it all
And I-I will hold you in it and I-I will hold you in it

Been wondering for days
How you felt me slip your mind
Leave behind your wanton ways
I want to look you in the eye
‘Cause you were all I ever longed for”

You’re there through my wasted nights”

#NowPlaying: Swiss Lips -Books

#NowPlaying: Bastille -Flaws

“You have always worn your flaws upon your sleeve
And I have always buried them deep beneath the ground
Dig them up; let’s finish what we’ve started
Dig them up, so nothing’s left untouched”

#NowPlaying: Bauhaus -Spirit

Bauhaus were an English Gothic Rock band, formed in Northampton, England in 1978. The group consisted of Peter Murphy(vocals, occasional instruments), Daniel Ash (guitar), Kevin Haskins (drums) and David J (bass). The band was originally named “Bauhaus 1919”; they dropped the numerical portion within a year of formation. With their dark and gloomy sound and image, Bauhaus are generally considered the first gothic rock group.

Bauhaus broke up in 1983. Peter Murphy began a solo career while Ash and Haskins continued as Tones on Tail and, later, reunited with David J to form Love and Rockets. Both enjoyed greater commercial success in the United States than Bauhaus had, but disappeared from the charts in their homeland. The band reunited for a 1998 tour and again from 2005–2008.

And dance upon your eyes

Change the lows to highs”

#NowPlaying: Bleachers – I Wanna Get Better

Bleachers is an American indie pop act based in New York City that was formed by Jack Antonoff, of Steel Train and Fun. Their first single, “I Wanna Get Better”, was released February 17, 2014.

While on the road with his band, Fun, Antonoff began working on a new project during his time in different cities. For about a year he kept the project a secret until February 17, 2014 where the first single “I Wanna Get Better” was released along with the launch of Bleachers’ website, social media profiles, and a selection of tourdates.[citation needed] News of Bleachers was first publicly announced in a Facebook post by Brooklyn music studio Mission Sound in May 2013.[1]

About making the album, Antonoff said, “I spent the past year working on the music but not talking about it, and eventually it became this psychotic alter-ego situation, where it was second nature to have this part of me that no one knew about. Except for a small group of people, most of which happened to be members of my immediate family, no one was aware that this music, or this album even existed … even though it existed so deeply to me.”[2] Antonoff also cited that Bleachers was never meant to be a departure from his position in Fun,[3] and that he will remain in the band.

Bleachers’ full-length album Strange Desire was released July 15, 2014, from RCA Records. (Information from wikipedia)

“And I miss the days of a life still permanent
Mourn the years before I got carried away
So now I’m staring at the interstate screaming at myself”
