Staying Awake is the second single from upcoming EP, "The Boy You Knew". To be released 25th March on My Little Empire Records.


Staying awake for far too long restless and thinking of you
You beg in a way that's dignified, and keeps you in control

Where did you go when you just disappeared?
Wasted your summer alone
How did you know it was gonna get weird?
I'm gonna spend another summer alone

Staying away by intention
Actively avoiding those awkward encounters that make you rigid, and make you want to die

I'm gonna spend another summer wastingg time
I'm gonna spend another summer sad
I'm gonna spend another summer wishing I could spend less time thinking of the things I had

And when the morning comes, and the pain's still there, with all the good times handing around
I'm gonna spend another evening wishing I could be a little applied, and less profound
Cursing the crack in the voice that begged me, to get the hell away from you
Every reason you had to resent me - i'm nothing like the boy you knew

Why We Love Bristol, UK

Sibling-fronted indie pop band from Bristol. They exploded onto the Bristol scene in May 2014 with their début single 'Patina', and found their feet playing sold-out shows with Wolf Alice, Slow Club & Teleman.

Instantly recognisable for their charming brand of sparkly guitar pop, bittersweet lyrics and blood harmonies, all showcased in energetic live shows.

Music to make you dance, sing and cry.
