Shades Of Blue​/​Corruption

One of the best discoveries of 2018.

The only thing is I don't know whether Shades Of Blue or Corruption is my favorite track....I have to say the latter due to the way it builds up, just like songs should.

I was blessed to catch them live in Oakland last August playing with both the stellar Topographies and Moon Daze, and hope they turned heads when they played the Part Time Punks showcase.

Isabel Salinas and the Doctor sisters have the best command of melodies I've heard in dream-pop.

Track Name: Shades Of Blue
Is she leaving you?
As her life unfolds within an empty room
In a secret view
That depicts the tales as lies unbloom

She can’t take the thought of falling out with you
Fast asleep on a train, it’s four in the afternoon

Her guards are closing in as they get closer and
She’s wondering if she’ll feel that way again

Is she missing you?
As she paints the town with different shades of blue
In a secret view
With every touch on her skin feels so new

She won’t say it, it’s out of sight and out of view
As she’s sat on the train, don’t you know she thinks of you?

Her guards are closing in as they get closer and
She’s wondering if she’ll feel that way again
Track Name: Corruption
Placid faces are passing her by
And they’re all leading idle lives
She sat and stared with things on her mind
The walls gaping back at sheltered eyes

There exists distorted points of views
Ideals and lies are going to claim our youth
She longs for something with value
But isolates herself in solitude

Seven years and she’s left her home
There’s no direction, no place to go
More than ever, she feels alone
She has no heart and she has no soul
