about

“Their debut EP is simply stunning… ‘Rivers’ strikes big… a song you’ll want to play on repeat and test the volume levels of your speakers. “Get Away” is one of my favorites. This song is a constant heartbeat in atmospheric flux… If you’re a Zola Jesus fan, listen to “Collapsing Horizon” and “Same” immediately (drop everything).” – The Work Magazine

“Simply captivating. Parallels is, from start to finish, a joy to listen to.” — Some Kind of Awesome

Track Name: Parallels
This could be us in some other life, 
this could be us.
Track Name: Rivers
You came to me at night,
Your hands were tied and you'd covered your eyes.
It didn't seem so strange to me,
I was lost in my dream.

So Lost,
So deep,
Stained red,
So bleak.

It didn't seem so strange to me,
I was lost in my dream.

Rivers will flow,
Washing the blood from your hands,
They'll take you home.
Track Name: Get Away
Get Away,
I've got to get away.
Track Name: Collapsing Horizon
What is this? 
Something fearless.
Once, but not so long ago, it was then...
Now the sun fades, 
The splitting ground starts to shake.

And it's what's collapsing.
But we don't say it's what's collapsing.
And yet, in a slow denial, our line of sight has been broken,
And now our eyes turn away.

Collapsing horizon.
Light bleeds from eyes once filled with promises.
And how could we stay?
Now we can say it's what's collapsing.

What is this? 
Something fearless.
Once, but not so long ago, it was then...
Now the sun fades, 
The splitting ground falls away.
Track Name: Same
This is the sound. 
It makes sense.
It's not the best thing you ever did.
You never did, oh, you never did.

And all of us sit in the back,
in the back seat of your heartless, heartless heart.
