about

"unison, deadpan, self-deprecating but anthemic—a breakup song, for sure, but also a musical love letter to their heroes that made heartbreak sound a lot less lonely." - Ian Cohen (Pitchfork)

Please don't buy this track here. Find it for a much more affordable price over on our label's bandcamp! (Take This To Heart Records)

Track Name: Ghost Song
you look less like a ghost
and more like a sheet
with two eye holes cut out

that i wore last halloween
so that you couldn't see my mouth
when i'd say
maybe it's better
maybe we'll work out some day
then you crushed that cup
between your hands
you had nothing left to say

but by far
hands down
last halloween
was the worst

you look less like a ghost
and more like a sheet on the floor
with that unmade bed of yours
and you kept it like your relationships
always ready to let anything just slip
and you should know
that hurts a little

but by far
hands down
last halloween
was the worst

by far hands down
last halloween
was the worst

you look less like a ghost and
more like a girl i used to know
and we'd talk for hours
about anything or the snow
and it wasn't long
until i had nothing left to show
she said don't worry about it
you still have room to grow


but by far
hands down
last halloween
was the worst

but you wouldn't know
