The Love Birds

from by Joseph Charles



featured on bandcamp weekly
With vocals that could fit in the era of post-rcok and emerging indie scene of the late nineties and 2000s, stripped to this lone musical attribute and the work is iconic. No singer’s voice lives in a vaccuum, Joseph Charles has chosen to hone the lo-fi ambience into it’s own driving aspect of the movie. As though a painter had a brush that led to the most amazing smudges.
The driving drone counterbalances the retro vocals and leads the listener quickly through this brief EP.


You're the cause
I'm going insane
You had to start
To ruin everything
I think all day I think all night
Am I someone who I like

Start to yell
Shake the walls that makes this our
loving house
be sure to not let it fall down

Are we friends
Or are we enemies
I'll draw the line
Right in front of me
I'll push and shove
I'll scream and shout
I'll be sure to let you out

There's the blood
Of my beating heart in your
Numbing hands
Be sure to not tear it apart

You were my love...
