It's all coming back

Lodestone 07:13
I need you like a nightmare, like a dying love needs a little bit of despair but when you needed me there I was always somewhere else I need you like a nightmare. Like somebody nobody will miss, i'll just pretend to exist. When you needed me there I turned into someone else. I need you like a nightmare like a lost soul looking for someone who cares a dream can last forever here, but forever ends somewhere I'll hold as long as i can... It's all coming back the closer you get the magic kept as if it never left dreaming apart, i still wake up in the dark sleep walk and i'll hold as long as i can

I want to be where you are

There is no way I could ever forget this place The wrinkles in your bed space Red and orange lights were bleeding through the sheets Remember this place Leaving the house just to feel again I’m telling myself this is not a syndrome Leave all your plans and your party dress On the floor with your dreams and all your favorite things and Forget this place There is no way i could ever forget this place The fascination starts to fade And your eyes, glazing over mine I can’t commit to fucking anyone and I don’t feel anything new anymore Only the bits of something better before We’ll never live like this again I can’t go back, but i can’t Forget this place We’ll never live like this again

Everywhere you are And I can't see you Everywhere I'm not As if I never were Everything you are And I see everything you aren't Everywhere I'm not As if I were before What a fool I've been everything I see, I saw it coming What could have been is lost now and I deserve it You'll never understand until there's nothing left everything I see you are everything I see you are everything Everything, you are everything I see you are everything I see you are everything

Now I see I've already missed it Now that I feel it, The feeling has ended For so long, Addicted anonymous I'm throwing up my problems in your bed and happy thoughts into the bin Remember then, the television was your best friend going home with just your limbs and thoughts of nothing The sun dies fast, I remember that the night spreads like a virus and it tucks me in with my regrets reminds me of the things I miss Sundays with dad, I remember that watching birthday tapes, I remember that throwing a fit on the phone, I remember that when we were losing our home, I ignored the feeling found your cigarettes, I remember that saying goodbye at the hospital bed the last year you were home for Christmas it still felt like a family then. Now I see I've already missed it Now that I feel it the feeling has ended

released May 15, 2022

Somewhere Before represents both a factual time that we can no longer return to and also a fictional time that we were never a part of. Many of the songs on the record are inspired by past events and center around themes of loneliness, longing and feelings of nostalgia. The sounds and sonic textures of the music are heavily influenced by old science fiction movies, film scores and photographs of people and places which feel alienated from reality.

The music of Somewhere Before was written, recorded, produced and mixed by us at our home studio in Fayetteville, Arkansas, during the 2020 lockdown. Most of the songs were written during this time, with a few ideas dating back to 2015. The sounds were primarily created with analog synthesizers, drum machines and found sounds around our apartment.

Thank you to Artist 360 and Mid-America Arts Alliance for helping us fund this project.
