[STATE OF SOUND] New Artists Soundcast #14: Too Young To Drown Edition
STATE OF SOUND is a Sights and Sounds feature where I select new electronically focused bands of stratospheric level quality that’ve been hanging around the periphery of the blogopshere’s vision (just waiting to be discovered). I select only on quality, but try to shoot for Soundcloud/Facebook followers of <6000. If you’d like to be considered for a soundcast, message our Senior Editor Kavi at the contact on my page.
THIS TIME: Too young to drown. To choke on my non-words. To not breathe your air, as you kiss me. Late at night, I lay awake. Think of your pretty face. Beat my collapsed lungs until I gasp. Gasp life, love. Gasp color. Gasp goddamn something.
If you like these songs, follow the artists on their Soundclouds/Facebooks. Check out the DISCOVER Links below each track. [Links open in a new tab]
MATTHEW YOUNG// PANAMA CITY
A R I Z O N A// LET ME TOUCH YOUR FIRE
Got cold heart, cold hands
If you only knew my plans
If you only knew who I am
And I’ll be singing
If you ever call my name
I’m cold, sick, and tired…so let me touch your fire.
TAMPER// DISPARATE YOUTH (SANTIGOLD COVER)
THE LANDING//ANXIETIES (REMASTERED FOR 2015)
We’re frozen to the core
I turn my back
While the odds all stand beneath me
And they all said I was misled
But now the odds all stand beneath me
Did you find
A reason to be alive?
This is where you get loud
Or get drowned out
Or fall asleep, just to wake up
Do you know what you’re made of
Or do miracles hurt your head?

SKIES_// TOO YOUNG
Flicker on, I saw you faded
Like the lights we used to know
And when you’re far from here
Will you still feel the thrill of fear?
We’re much too young
To be missing out
I close my eyes
The rhythm comes new
