about

Dear Dear shows off sweet 3-part harmonies over pop melodies that punch & crackle out of gritty-but-clean power chords. The band's cumulative love of piano-based pop, post-punk, contemporary praise music and the American songbook burrows down into the fertile Brooklyn indie rock scene and emerges with 18 1/2 minutes of catchy indie pop which they are kind of sorry will be stuck in your head for maybe longer than you want.

They recorded it in Brooklyn at galuminum foil studios.

about

Boy Girl Party New York, New York

Boy Girl Party has a little chip on their shoulder, but a few minutes on the dance floor shakes it off. Sincerely nerdy and unabashedly silly, they are on a constant hunt for new band friends and dance partners with a decent sense of time and a better sense of humor. ... more

Track Name: Be a Jerk
I want money like a rich man's wife
Fantasize about an easy life
Rollin' in the Benz
Everybody's friends
With me

I want money like the government
Entourage just like the President
Wad of Benjamins
Everybody wins
With me

But if I gotta be a jerk
Yeah, if I gotta be a jerk
If I gotta be a jerk
To the ones who really work
To get ahead
I will stay behind instead

Well, I want money like the MTA
Pair of Jimmy Choos for every day
Paris to Japan
Everyone's a fan
Of me

But if I gotta be a c---
Yeah, if I gotta be a c---
If I gotta be a c---
To get everything I want
Then it's ok
I don't want it anyway

But if I gotta be a jerk
Yeah, if I gotta be a jerk
If I gotta be a jerk
To the ones who really work
To get ahead
I will stay behind instead
Track Name: Don't Bother Me
Don't bother me Don't bother me
Don't bother me Don't bother me
Don't bother me Don't bother me
Don't bother me Don't bother me anymore

Brave like pioneers
Sensitive like a cut
Pulling at the thread
That's keeping all the sutures shut

Don't bother me Don't bother me
Don't bother me Don't bother me
Don't bother me Don't bother me
Don't bother me Don't bother me anymore

Got a thousand bucks
Hidden under the couch
It's a human right
To keep your money in your mouth

Don't bother me Don't bother me
Don't bother me Don't bother me
Don't bother me Don't bother me
Don't bother me Don't bother me anymore
Track Name: Feeling Of
You don’t look as different as I thought you would
‘Member when I kissed you just because I could?
And everything still looks the same, it feels the same to me
Maybe after all this time I cannot trust my memory

Same old ceiling, same old shirt you always wear
Never bought a new one ‘cause you never cared
Everybody knows your name ‘cause it’s the same one as your dad
We were talking so much shit, but things were never really that bad

And in between the lines I got
The color of, the color of
the memory of the color of your eyes
And in between the sighs I got
the feeling of the feeling of
the memory of the feeling of
the memory of the feeling of
the memory of the feeling of
the memory of the feeling of

And everything still looks the same, it feels the same to me
Maybe after all this time I cannot trust my memory

And in between the lines I got
The color of, the color of
the memory of the color of your eyes
And in between the sighs I got
the feeling of the feeling of
the memory of the feeling of
the memory of the feeling of
the memory of the feeling of
the memory of the feeling of
Track Name: Cat
I love my mama
I love my dad
I love my brother, my dog and my cat
But we can't have
The family that we had
It makes me so sad
Oh, it makes me so sad
But everybody says that's part of life
Yeah, everybody says that's part of life

Uh-oh, oh

Everybody says that's part of life
Yeah everybody says that's part of life

I hate this city
I hate this rain
People call it a gritty town,
But all they mean is that it's bleeding pain
Alone and scared
Overgrown and underprepared
And you know that nobody cares
Yeah, you know that nobody cares
But everybody says that's how it is
Yeah everybody says that's how it is

Uh-oh, oh

Everybody says, yeah everybody says...
