Bitemarks 05:14
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
2.
Keep It 04:38
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
3.
Drown 04:58
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
4.
False 04:11
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
5.
Tarantula 05:43
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
6.
Wasted 03:55
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
7.
Artifact 06:34
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

Under 04:49
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?
9.
Blame 04:11
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
10.
Replica 04:39
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
11.
Felicia 06:46
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
12.
Burn 03:12
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

about

Available on cassette from Mirror Universe Tapes:
mirroruniversetapes.bandcamp.com/album/single-lash

"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)

'“Single Lash,” and Single Lash the band itself, are well-done breaks from the idea that dreary must always be dark (or is it vice versa), with the satisfying and even at times near ecstatic prettiness of the album pairing perfectly with the goth- and general 80s-British-Music-informed melancholia of the songs here. Which, truth be told, is just the way any good pain + pleasure thing should go (I guess in a way what I’m saying is that “Single Lash” is the consensual rough sex where everyone involved leaves bruised but happy of music).'
-The Deli Magazine (austin.thedelimagazine.com/21591/single-lash-has-chords-youre-looking-for)

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.
