about

"Ecstatic Highs / Euphoric Lows" was recorded between the Summer and Winter of 2016. It was recorded by Brent Randall (Pinecones/Gentle Brent) at each of our apartments using an 8 track cassette recorder, then switched over to computer.

Along with recording duties Brent also sings Harmonies, plays Bass, Electric & Acoustic Guitars and Piano/Keys. We also enlisted the help of Marshall Bureau on Drums and Ashley Feldman on Harmony Vocals.

The E.P is a mere $5 to download or PWYC. I have also been making a video for each song which you can view on my Vimeo site.. vimeo.com/user3447455

Recorded by Brent Randall & Brodie Dakin @ Cat Scratch Fever Studios

Track Name: Blue Is The Warmest Colour
"When will comfort comfort me..
I'm drowning deep inside.
These days I long to be free
Instead of lonely ties.

I harboured for a lasting love
With the knowing one.
A light that blinds like the sun..
Instead of what's become.

Words are sung in a desperate song.
Unsure to where they belong.
Patient for them to hold on strong.
Where they can do no harm.

Out of touch with dreams I've created.
These sorrows they never abated.
No cures to keep them sedated..
But a ruse, it seems so fated.

No words left to be spoken.
Our silence has left us broken.
This terrible dream I've finally awoken.
I'll never leave myself so open.

Words are sung in a desperate song.
Unsure to where they belong.
Patient for them to hold on strong.
Where they can do no harm.

I know that i'll finally recover
And maybe find that solemn lover
Whose blue eyes are the warmest colour.

But they belonged to you..
Always to you.
Track Name: Ecstatic Highs / Euphoric Lows
"You peel glades of grass with the tips of your toes
Then tickle them lightly to the end of your nose.
Everyone watches your innocent show...
Of Ecstatic Highs to Euphoric Lows.

The feeling builds and your legs go weak.
Words get heavy, so hard to speak.
Thoughts they stiffen as your mood turns bleak.
Hear my voice, feel me speak.

What will you do when the sky turns grey?
Sit in silence and hope for rain?
Or wish it all away?

Brighter days your love light shows.
Filled with wonder, that only you know.
Enlightens a heart shot from cupid's bow.
The more you give, the more I grow.

What will you do when the sky turns grey?
Sit in silence and hope for rain?
Or wish it all away?

So many knots in the threads of our lives
Unsure to cave or survive the strife."
Track Name: Freedom In Failure
"If you took away this foolish pride there'd be no place to run and hide...
To hide the fear of our demise,
Left lonely deep inside.

There was wisdom in a younger year
Hard fought battles against the tears..
But soon wisdom waned through the fear
That too much sorrow will always leave a doubt..

Deep inside, when you make me feel alive.
Don't try to sympathise with the darkness in these eyes.

We ask one another as we sink, in our hearts mind what do you seek
Cause the ups and the downs of our chemistry
Has made us casualties.

Another day another momentum swing
When talk turned to everything..
That dealt with what could never be..
I'm tied of always feeling these doubts...

Deep inside, when you make me feel alive.
Don't try to sympathise with the darkness in these eyes.
