about

Available on cassette from Mirror Universe Tapes:

"Any mixture of the adjectives "dark" and "goth" to describe current bands indebted to shoegaze is pretty tedious at this point. As descriptors they fall flat, especially when a band crops up who actually breathe life into this overworked genre, such as Austin's Single Lash, and their new, self-titled, full-length album." - Beth Tolmach for ADHOC.fm
www.adhoc.fm/post/listen-album-single-lash/

"Deep and resonant with the force of something, if not occult, than primal. This is, after all, the method of Goth rather than the mere trappings."
- from The Method of Goth on 20jazzfunkgreats ( Read: j.mp/1FvcVgb)

Austin's Single Lash selftitled full length is 60+ minutes of reverb filled shoegazey pop under a layer of gothic overtones and industrial haze. Single Lash is fronted by Nicolas Nadeau (also of Slow Pulse) backed by Colin Foster and Neil Lord (of Future Museums). Nicolas' haunting vocals add a chilling touch to an already dark work of art.

Track Name: Bitemarks
Bitemarks-

You have been with me a long time
Hold onto the hand that’s biting you
Cry- but only if it feels right
And only for yourself

I won’t try to save you
We’ve lost
And I feel the bite- so hard
So hard

You have hung around a long time
Swing from the line that’s leading you
A prize- is that what you wanted?
Keep it to yourself
Track Name: Keep It
Keep It-

I see them bloom- at dawn
As the glow subsides, one by one they die
Was I talking to you? Or only clinging to a moment?
I am spellbound as the stars go out

Keep it in remembrance
It’ll never come again

Hatching in a grove- I hear the flutter of wings
Sprawled on the lawn – everyone else is gone
And I’ve been reading your note
I can’t remember how it felt
Wandering through the stones- listening for the echo

Keep it in remembrance
It’ll never come again

I see the bones of this world lay beneath the ice
Shiver in the dark – Shiver – Shiver in the dark
Track Name: Drown
Drown-

If I could tell you now what you were in for,
Would you smile at me?
My arms will hold you- down
If you could tell, somehow, what I held in store
Could you smile for me?
My eyes will watch you drown
Track Name: False
False-

Enemy- I carry it with me
Wilting in the half-light – wasting away
Longing for what?
There’s nothing here to want
Just bitter nostalgia-
There’s nothing here that’s true

Could this be all?

You grow and I fade
This thing that I’ve made isn’t you

Longing for what?
There’s nothing here to want
Just bitter nostalgia-
There’s nothing here that’s true

Could this be all?

The enemy is me
This thing that I’ve longed for isn’t real
Track Name: Tarantula
Tarantula-

It’s so nice to see
All my old friends smiling at me

Tarantula

It’s a lack of feeling
Total lack of feeling
Track Name: Wasted
Wasted-

Goodbye
I know that I wasted your time
You are completely wasted- on me
Goodbye
I know that I wasted your time

This is suicide
Ok- I lied

You are so deeply wasted on me
Goodbye
I know that I wasted your time
You are completely wasted- on me
Goodbye
I know that I wasted your time

You should be fine
Ok- I lied

I wasted your time
You wasted your time
Track Name: Artifact
Artifact-

You recall as it occurs,
But by the time you feel it- it’s already gone
It’s like living in a memory-
You can only do what you’ve already done
And you’ve already said these words again
You recall as it occurs,
But by the time you feel it- it’s already gone

And there’s no breaking the curse that put you in stasis
In the dim room of a black hotel
And you remember the names, but none of the faces
Do you want to?
Do you know?

That if you still feel – there’s still Love
There is no Love
And if you sill breathe- there’s still Hope
There is no Hope

And we’ve been looking for you in all the wrong places
In the black rooms of an old hotel
And like the passage of time eliminates traces,
We will find you
You will know

That if you still feel – there’s still Love
There is no Love
And if you still breathe- there’s still Hope
There is no Hope
Track Name: Under
Under-

I’m leaving behind- the Wasteland on the surface
Florence, I’ll wait by your side
What keeps me alive?
What compels me to shun the daylight?
There’s nothing alive in the Wasteland-
Dead and worthless
Florence, there’s no healing with time
How do I survive?

Distraught by the wall- through the hours
The company of Death returns
Faint inscription- voice of reason
A fractured carapace
Humming a tune – carving you in wax
The likeness fades
The artist wakens – carving their embrace
It’s shuddering

I never believed in the Wasteland
‘Til it found me
Florence, the grave is so kind
What keeps me alive?
Through the rain there’s no glimpse of moonlight
There’s nothing but grief in the Wasteland
All around me
Florence, you live in my mind
Why do I survive?

Looking through the glass- gazing upward
Resembling your face
Florence- strewn in flowers
Terrified oaths struggle to gain voice
Tumbling down – find a passage
The flesh is gone
Retreating now – the ashes cool
There’s nothing found

I’m leaving behind- the Wasteland on the surface
Florence, I’ll wait by your side
What keeps me alive?
What keeps me alive?
What keeps me alive?
Track Name: Blame
Blame-

Woo me, wound me, blame me
Faceless, nameless – came to me
It wrapped my head in chains
In chains – in chains – I need a way out

Oh, Holy Ghost-
Can you see what’s in my mind?
So many places to wander
But there’s nothing to find

Use me, fool me, waste me
Ageless, blameless – come to me
I hung my head in shame
In shame – in shame – I need a way out

Oh, Holy Ghost
Can you feel what’s in my heart?
So many places I’ve wandered
But there’s nowhere to start

Don’t blame me for what you want
You can’t blame me for what you want
If I survive this trial, will I still be
In chains – in chains – I need a way out
I need a way out
Track Name: Replica
Replica-

Where do you go?
Don’t tell me that you don’t know
Now, for the first time-
You’re looking vulgar to me
Don’t say what was said
Please tell me

Someone’s knocking on my door – desperately
Someone’s talking in my voice – that isn’t me

Is He disease?
Is it something to do with me?
If I could change-
Oh, Anna, would you stay?
Dead – your lover’s dead
It’s just you and me and you and me and you and me and you and me

Someone’s pounding on my door – desperately
Someone’s screaming in my voice – that looks like me

Let me in – you can feel the way I feel
Let me in
Track Name: Felicia
Felicia-

I’m running on time
Wait for me – I won’t be so long
Yours is mine
Be without softness
From nothing into blackness
A long and lonely track
You, too, in black
Compose your thoughts
Bodies and faces
Feel my approach- soft through the night

Felicia, your whole life- you
You thought you were waiting for me
I was still running one step behind
You breathed in the smoke
You were always mine

I’m running on time
Wait for me
I won’t be so long
You turn aside:
“Finally, it’s here”
Finally, I’m here
Track Name: Burn
Burn-

Most of all, it’s smoldering for you
Eyes are on the black of the beams
Afterall, it’s worse when I’m with you
Legs surround and draw me near

Fill my lungs with smoke and ash
Keep it kindled
You will make me choke and I will-

Burn for you

Most of all, I’m withering for you
Eyes upon the last of the gleam
Afterall, it’s worse when I miss you
Arms around and smothered here
