Giana Tondolo Bonilla Gives me a good feeling that I can't explain. It's like... like a punch to the soul. Favorite track: Sum + Some.

PAUL TALBOO In an age where radio music is contrived and derivative, SPEAKRS is a breath of fresh air. Songs both beautiful and driving. This is what the world's ears should be hearing on the radio. I'm addicted to the soundscape of this EP. Long Live SPEAKRS! Favorite track: Golden Age.

Track Name: Afterglow
All we are are people under radial stars.
And this time is ours.
So are we going to?
Make our hearts start beating in the dead of night?
Make our hearts start beating in the dead of night?
As we go out to find ourselves a bit of new history.
____

What we want is not too far from here.
We’ll be there by dawn and in this stratosphere,
We are our own kind living our own lives,
As we go out to find ourselves a bit of new mystery.
____

Come on now, let’s chase the afterglow.
I’ll be at the ready, so just say the word and go.
Don’t you know we don’t have too long in this shadow
Get in the glow.
Glitter until you’re gold.
_____

Come on now, let’s chase the morning-glow.
I’ll be at the ready, so just say the word and go.
Don’t you know we don’t have too long in this shadow
So step into the glow,
Glitter until you’re gold.
Track Name: Sum + Some
I’ve felt streets and the pavement burning off the youth from both my feet.
I sit around, count the miles, and the sum of it is heavy.

I’m hearing strange voices and unsaid, fading days of wasted retrospect

It’s too close to call, when there’s been about 2 or 3 different “me”
It’s all up in the air, where to mend or tear? Where to start? Where to start?

Strange voices and unsaid, fading days of wasted retrospect, in my head.

But when you call, it falls away. Every clone and con I have played.

And every tone of every shade, turns to one true hue of even grade.

I just want run. Run until I find myself with you.

But when you call, it falls away. Every clone and con I have played.

And every tone of every shade shade, turns to one true hue of even grade.
Track Name: Golden Age
I’ve got skies of blue,
And every lovely line of that old tune,
Right outside the door.
But my hiding place will keep me away.

Start new,
With wonder of a wide-eyed youth,
A land without a chart,
And a history without a mark.

Stay young and golden aged.
Never move or change
From such a perfect state.

A dull view.
A world that’s growing old on you.
But permanence is hard,
When you’re losing it right from the start.

Stay young and golden aged.
Never move or change
From such a perfect state.

In my head, I’ll stay here for the day.
Track Name: Where To Go
Is there anything you want to know?
Is there anyone you want to be?
You just need a little room to grow?
Or something you can guarantee?

Give it up, all the fight,
All the ways you skirt the line.
Can’t you just let go?

It’s the miracle of common code.
It’s the pattern that you couldn’t see.
It will be the secret of the old,
A language that you couldn’t read.

Give it up, all the fight,
All the ways you skirt the line.
Can’t you just let go?

Go the way of the wise;
Set it free or let it die.
Can’t you just let go?

Don’t you really want to let go?
Don’t you really want to give it up?
No limbo or going back.

Give it up, all the fight
Can’t you just let go?
Go the way of the wise;
Set it free or let it die.

Give it up, all the fight,
All the ways you skirt the line.
Can’t you just let go?

Go the way of the wise;
Set it free or let it die.
Can’t you just let go?
Track Name: Uh Oh Oh No
It’s a villain that you have to war with,
Scratching at your door.

It’s a fever that you haven’t quite kicked,
Coming back for more.

It’s onto me, swinging on back around.

Is it gettin' to ya? Uh Oh, Oh No
Started messin' with ya? Uh Oh, Oh No
Oh it's eatin' at ya? Uh Oh, Oh No

It’s fire that you’re going to hit,
Digging so far below.

And do you really ever forget
No way to un-know.

Regenerate, ripen and unfold.

Is it gettin' to ya? Uh Oh, Oh No
Started messin' with ya? Uh Oh, Oh No
Oh it's eatin' at ya? Uh Oh, Oh No
