precisely what would you like to do? everything that i ever wanted to change arrange the outer space brigade it feels as i’ve grown older the world around grows colder still.. the pills warm and happy my young shadow is holding me down, underwater my young shadow is cutting the brakes, on my future it don’t feel right, it don’t feel right, to me a fast food cup thrown from a pickup truck inconsiderate reckless selfish little (what?) if the new disease should claim me i’ll watch your stocks go crazy the bugs the drugs i feel no love my young shadow is holding me down underwater my young shadow is cutting the brakes on my future it don’t feel right, it don’t feel right, to me our silhouettes, they stretch, under street lamps our bicycle reflectors, burn in the headlights my——— my young shadow is holding me down words by Kong

about

"Warm And Happy may only be four tracks, but what it lacks in length it makes up for in cavernous soundscapes. Whether it’s The Cars vibe of “For $ale” or the Echo & The Bunnymen flavors in “Bad Birthday” this little EP packs a sonic punch in each and every tune.
Don’t get it wrong, Warm And Happy isn’t a retread, it’s four dudes that have an extensive education in the music they grew up listening to and have taken to smashing it all together to produce an addictive and captivating vibe."

"8-bit crEEps is just perfect. The fact that they sound like the Talking Heads if someone left an N64 on in the background while they were recording and the game soundtrack magically synced up in key and tempo makes the name even better."
