Siouq It seems Strange Ranger change their sound every year now, it shows how tallented Isaac and Fred are that they can write such diffrenet music all the time. Verry excited for the future of this band!

miatan One of the, in my opinion, closest-to-perfect EPs out there -- along with Slaughter Beach Dog's "motorcycle.jpg" -- good songs, great overall coherence! Favorite track: The Wires.

Fionn Bit of everything here - a Soaked-In-Sleep-esque banger, the slowly building and climaxing songs, and just great melodies all around. Everything Strange Ranger makes is gold. Favorite track: Remember.

Track Name: New Hair
I fall off
you could do it if you want to
icky cough
you could stop and tell me good news
see you sometime

keep my head
sort of staring out the window
creaky bed
it's december and do you know
how it all went by

I have new hair
though I make no decisions
show up and glare
what if I ever listened
they told me it'd all be so great someday

back at work
I could bail if I wanted
I'm a jerk
when I tell you that I'm honest
I'm your coldest star

I have new hair
danny byers did it
we drive and stare
feels like I'm almost finished
they told me it'd all be so great someday
Track Name: I Want It To Be Dark
he comes back to say
I am gonna break you the same way
I hate you
feel the tonsil pain
tearing at your throat
throw me away
naked in the pool
he hates you
for what you do
he loved you too

naked in the car
makeout missing the stars
there's still no life on mars
I want it to be dark

na na na
Track Name: Remember
never been away like this before
do you think it's different when you're torn apart
the roar of blinking hearts

the sun is on your face while we're awake
alive on every holiday
he calls on christmas or not at all

aren't memories all the same
survive in awkward shapes
if only i could be alone and not alone at all
