First single off the upcoming Teenage Wasteland EP (May 19th)


I -- I never much liked the flames, but I… I loved the light
I loved the feeling of free-fall, but I never much liked the heights

I know you try to love me
And I know you can't.
And I, I understand.
You can't break down who I am,
Who I am

I -- I wanted everything, but I didn't just want it handed to me
You know, I really did wanna be your girl, but I ... I also wanted to be more than what you wanted to see


You can't break down who I am
You can't break down who I am


released April 28, 2015
Mastered at Whitewater Recordings

Sounds like... Howard Hughes’ mind on a steamy summer night in 1936, electrified with champaign-soaked bubbles & all of his neurons synapsing endlessly between light & dark, Las Vegas & solitude, being the predator & being the prey.
