about

sink\sink write, “In a nameless city deluged by a continuous rain… we attempt to craft beauty from inarticulacy, experimentation and improvisation, articulated through a contorted web of drones and swelling dynamics.” Expect beautiful on this five track debut ep.

Also Childrenplay Records and sink\sink will be supporting Chace Topperwien and his family by donating all the profits from the Center Folds EP to Chase. Chace is just two years and three months old and is staging a courageous battle against acute myeloid luekaemia. Our prayers go out to them.

Track Name: Astronaut
I was just a kid, you told me not to aim for the stars
instead look both ways, watch out for the buses and the cars
spinning through space, they couldn't drag my thoughts away
I wished I couldn't stay, I knew I had to go today

Couldn't be there for me, be there for me
though you tried, couldn't be there for me, couldn't be there for me
though you tried, couldn't be there for me, you couldn't be there for me

though you try

I wanted to make you proud
I still wanted to make you proud
And on that drive I held your hand to all the things we couldn't stand, and I whispered, 'I just wanted to make you proud'
To all those thoughts you would divulge in centerfolds and notebooks, I knew you as the prince of a nation and you made me proud

Oh to be your Astronaut
Oh to be your Astronaut
Oh to be your Astronaut
Track Name: One Swallow Does Not Make A Summer
Sometimes I just keep it inside, but most days I'm just looking for a place to hide
It's a summer day, so why am I so afraid?
It's a subtle taste but we like it that way

If my father took his life for the national flag,
well I don't care at all I don't care at all I don't care at all, I don't care
If my mother sold her soul for the things that she had lacked
just don't pick up the phone don't pick up the phone don't pick up the phone don't pick up the

Sometimes I just keep it inside,
Die, die, die,
Sometimes I just
die, die
But most days I'm just looking for a place to hide, a place to hide

If my father took his life for the national flag,
well I don't care at all I don't care at all I don't care at all, I don't care
If my mother sold her soul for the things that she had lacked
just don't pick up the phone don't pick up the phone don't pick up the phone don't pick up the
Track Name: 1752 ... I'm Afraid (General Reef & SLEEVES Remix)
Lay down your shield
Sink into another's arms
I've thrown the fight
A world of time only runs away, I've built this walls now I'm afraid of landscapes, between us
and before me
before me, before me, before me

Lay down these apprehensions
your words were just inventions
break them now, lose all you've found
break them now, lose all you've found
You'll see somehow, you are free
you'll see somehow you're free
Track Name: Gursky (Audio Pornography Remix)
Spun out by wind of water, I am the waveforms daughter
I'm floating back to the surface, not 'cause I learned how to swim
place down this fear you hear
we're made to pretend this bend is always straightening
we're made to pretend this bend is always straightening
Spun out by wind of water, I am the waveforms daughter
Lightness makes this blindness
I'm floating back to the surface, not 'cause I learned how to swim
Gursky took our photograph
Gursky took our photograph
Gursky took our photograph
And then we disappeared
Then we disappeared
Climb over my fence take your indifference save it for myself
Climb over my fence take your indifference save it for myself
Climb over my fence take your indifference save it for myself
