Vocals: Johnny Truant

Rock n roll should be cathartic and subversive-- and that's the way we play it. We flirt with genres promiscuously and refuse to commit to a category. Our music comes with a healthy dose of queerness and a side of androgyny.

This is post-traumatic post-punk.

Track Name: Wasted Youth
Wasted youth
In your eyes
Bluer than the summer skies

Wasted youth
In your hands
Warmer than the sun-baked sands

Let’s live and love then
We’ll never be this young again
Let’s live and love then
We’ll never be this dumb again

Wasted youth
Down the drain
You hurt yourself to stop the pain

Medicated
But not high
Too queer to live, too young to die

Let’s live and love then
We’ll never be this young again
Let’s live and love then
We’ll never be this dumb again

Suns when they sink can rise again
Suns when they sink can rise again
But we when our brief light has shone
Must sleep the long night on and on....
and on and on and on

Wasted youth
Slips away
Growing shorter every day

Stay with me
In the sun
Before the summer days are done

Let’s live and love then
We’ll never be this young again
Let’s live and love then
We’ll never be this dumb again
