about

GS019

"The sprawling orchestral style has been replaced by a cacophonous rock aesthetic, Lovier’s vocals possessing newfound grit and blunt immediacy, the atmosphere swirling in raucous noise, as though a bell jar has been placed over the band, their previously diffused sound forced to gather into thick black thunderheads." - Various Small Flames

Pared down from a swelling septet to a duo, Philadelphia’s all boy/all girl have returned to their original, concentrated form with the explosive Crisps EP, their first recorded output in over a year.

More direct than the group’s experimental Troubleshooting and Slagroom, Crisps pairs screaming, distorted guitars with hooks that stay in your head, without losing the subtle complexities of songwriting and unusual instrumentation that make all boy/all girl so unique.

With lyrics such as “how’s it gonna feel, when I try to make new friends, it doesn’t even make any sense to me”, founding members, Nicholas Rahn and Danielle Lovier, use insularity to create their loudest, most raucous record yet.

Track Name: Phloem
The words, these sounds
You feed them to me, I can feel you
Feel you in my lungs
Squeezing my throat, every note
You kiss my lips as you exit from me
On my own breath

I’m a grafted branch on your barren tree am I growing on to you?
Like a parasite on your barkless bite
Am I feeding off of you?

I bleed your blood and I fruit your tree
Every one of them
But I lost myself in the sound of your voice
Singing in me

I’m a plastic bag on the open sea and you’re flowing into me
Track Name: Bomb
Not feeling like myself again
Trying to remember the last time I saw my friends
Sleeping in an empty bed
I guess that’s the way it is when you’re depressed
Anyway the room’s a mess
Bombs make the loudest sound
The silence is arrested yea, but I like the noise

It’s bringing me some relief from all my insecurities
Including but not limited to
What I say and how I look and what I do

Sleeping with my friends again
I guess I didn’t think that through when I got undressed
Well daddy didn’t love me best.
Temptation is a swallowed pill
The guy who got arrested said you better shoot to kill

It’s bringing me some relief from all my insecurities
Including but not limited to
What I say and how I look and what I do
Track Name: The Party Song
How’s it gonna feel
When I try to make new friends
It doesn’t even make any sense to me
What the hell am I gonna say
When I try to make you laugh with some dumb joke...
I guess you didn’t find it funny

I guess I’d rather be at home by myself
Yea I’d rather be at home by myself

So sad for me to say
But I should be on my way
i’ve got some other place I need to be
Well that’s just something I say
Cause I’ll be going home to sit alone on my couch but you already figured that out

You know I’d rather be at home by myself
Yea I’d rather be at home by myself

Next time I shouldn’t try so hard
To socialize it’s so hard
To be cool, so sad to be alone
But so nice to stay home

Yea I’d rather be at home by myself
