Alex Rogowsky A criminally underdiscovered band. This album has everything from sugary sweet melodies and imaginative psychedelia to huge rhythms and plenty of "Hell yes" moments. Give it a shot. You won't be disappointed. Favorite track: Sunrise Old.

Tortaruga 02:49
We're coming second in the human races 'Cause we're living like the setting sun. We're loving every single body’s faces 'Cause we're living like the setting sun. And we won't get the connection 'Til they mean it. Nobody’s gonna be around for the high tide 'Cause we won't be here when the day is done, And if you say it, won't you say it for the last time, 'Cause you'll be talking 'til the morning comes. And we won't get the connection 'Til they mean it. And we're never making it out alive, Still we're walking, and we're running, And we're telling all our lovers "goodbye" And no one's making it out alive, Still we're walking, and we're running, And we're telling all our lovers "goodbye"

Morning Owls 03:19
Harvest the stars you morning owls We’ll take the blame again. You’ll never see us here at night time. Believe it or not this holy war’s been Raging around the time That we all left the coastline. Old times, old times are getting Old times, old times are getting Old. In the light! In the light! Give us the answer morning owls. We need to know Where we’re going. You know, you know that it’s a cruel world. I know, I know that it’s An even crueler sea. Old times, old times are getting Old times, old times are getting Old. In the light! In the light! We won’t come back at night time, No we won’t. We’re never coming back at night time, No we won’t.

I Do 02:49
Don't wait 'til I'm gone to tell me you love me No crying at the sky above C'mon now grab me, hug me and hold me There ain't no thing like your love I won't hide these feelings inside A fool with time to spare I won't wait for time or fate While all my friends disappear I've never had a friend before No i've never had a friend like you I've never had a friend quite like you When I say I love you I mean that I love you Don't take that any other way Run with it and know that I'm thinking of you and that I mean the words I say I won't hide these feelings inside A fool with time to spare I won't wait for time or fate While all my friends disappear I've never had a friend before No i've never had a friend like you I've never had a friend quite like you

Forge a faster way up to my lord. Reminds me, I don’t love him anymore. And I remember everlasting light is what you showed to me. Now I can’t see. For now the body wins a little war, And shiny absolution lives next door. And I can see the bones of things Are breaking out from under me. Now I can’t see. Walking on the sidewalk bleeding On my footsteps Sealing cracks and carving tracks And all I'm doing is Singing bitter love songs.

Shooting star come and gone Shine on the lonely ones Look at the state we're in We cut your name in our skin There's an emptiness you left behind Don't wanna say goodbye I just want to see You smiling when you think of me Look at the circumstances More than a game of chance There's a light inside i hope you'll find Don't have to say goodbye Shooting star come and gone Shine on, shine on

Sunrise Old 04:15
Wake me slowly Or Christ, I won’t escape this lonely Lake of stone and lake of fire Mistake this for a Holy light to warn us That dreams and treachery conspire. Lonely does the sunrise One eye open And shut the other loosens The ground conviction lays ahead. Sweetly, sweetly, The song that lulls completely The head, the heart, the lungs Will breathe the dead. Lonely does the sunrise Unceremoniously Like the others that we left unjustly Under the night! Under the night! Under the night! “We’re never leaving”

Woof! 03:21
Escaping narrowly The sharp blessed seething of night The dawn is taking no prisoners Breaking inquisitors down We'll never bet on the arcane We're living life from the left of the brain Meantime, meantime, We need a cause, we need a cause Make out the song That's been bleeding all night She sings out the effigy Breaking our chemistry down We'll never live for the old ways We'll never live for the old glory days No we, no we Won't need a cause, won't need a cause 'Cause the art is the heart of gold In the young bleeds the heart of old In the end We will only long For the art The night will take forever We'll end the night together

See the night, she’s singing to me. "Oh my love." Screaming at the lightning "Turn back to me!" All these drugs. Disappointed mothers Call the ugly older brothers We believe in you. Disappointed lovers Call the ugly and the others We believe it’s true. Call them off! Call them off! And we will follow, Again. Don’t leave it up to them again. Never leave it up to them again. No, no, no, no! Into the dark I’m disappearing Where have I gone? When I close my eyes am I still living? Or am I dust? Just dust. Disappointed mothers Call the ugly older brothers We believe in you. Disappointed lovers Call the ugly and the others We believe it’s true. Cal them off! Call them off! And we will follow, Again. Don’t leave it up to them again. Never leave it up to them again. No, no, no, no! Keep it up, I’ll keep it up, I’ll keep it up, I’ll keep it up.

Hearts 03:53
We enlist the young To smother out the sun tonight And with the elder’s tongue They sing to raise the morning’s light They tremble Sentimental hearts They stumble Sentimental hearts They crumble Sentimental hearts And now the blood so young Is soaked in all and everyone And the Sun so old Is finding out the Earth’s still cold They tremble Sentimental hearts They stumble Sentimental hearts They crumble Sentimental hearts It's high time we're outta here
