jennastruble11 The beginning track’s gooseflesh-inducing synth wave took me into modern synth pop euphoria, laced with some home cooked nostalgia. Solid musicianship under Rob and Kate’s vocals that are fun, sexy and so, so cool. Soundtrack worthy. So much fun and a wee bit addictive.

gibby23 Poppy, cathartic, emotional and epic. Once again, Rob and Kate Houle conjure up an 80s synth-pop fever dream. You'll be exhausted after the fever breaks, and prolly quite sweaty. The thing I've always loved about Before Dawn is their sincere commitment to making you get up and shake your ass. 10/10 would recommend. Favorite track: Waiting For The End Of The World.

Brought up from the bottom, reeled into the light Happy and hooked on your line Spinning and spawning I was losing sleep Claws and teeth, dug in deep Catch and release Just let me go Catch and release Or hang on tight and hold me close Sailing solo A lost ship in a vast, dark sea Lured by your allure To be fair I am rare Siren for siren I took the bait And it felt like fate Catch and release Just let me go Catch and release Or hang on tight and hold me The fish gets bigger and bigger and bigger Every time you tell the tale And if we don't end up together I wouldn't say that we failed Swim free, swim free, swim free Just let me go Swim free, swim free, swim free Just let me go Swim free, swim free, swim free Just let me go Swim free, swim free, swim free Or hang on tight and hold me close Catch and release Just let me go Catch and release Or hang on tight and hold me close

When I'm here When I'm here It is the leaving I fear These memories talking In my life No other place Makes me feel the way I feel when I'm here These memories talking And I'll never forget The love that I've found Beneath every rock Up every tree In every lake, every stream The friends that don't go Away from my mind The mysteries left And everything still to find To find It's so hard to convey To them so far away And if I could I would stay Until they drag me away Oh I'll wait All winter All summer And all spring and all fall I wanna do it again So far displaced My steps retraced These drastic changes got me feeling so down But I'll come around And I'll never forget The love that I've found Beneath every rock Up every tree In every lake, every stream The friends that don't go Away from my mind The mysteries left And everything still to find To find It's so hard to convey To you so far away And if I could I would stay Until they drag me away I'll wait all winter All summer And all spring and all fall I wanna do it again

All alone out in the dark Waiting for daylight I I hear voices calling me But I'm nowhere in sight Where have all of my days gone Blended together Born again Again I'll try Birds of a feather Raised by wolves Raised by wolves When everything goes against the grain And all you know spinning down the drain Raised by wolves Raised by wolves Lost I've strayed off of the path Part of me wanted this Stay I know no other way Longings I can't resist Raised by wolves Raised by wolves When everything goes against the grain And all you know spinning down the drain You're raised by wolves Raised by wolves When everything goes against the grain And all you know spinning down the drain Raised by wolves Raised by wolves You're raised by

Scavengers 04:01
Thrown together and torn apart Like what we like and get what we've got Thrown together and torn apart Like what we like and get what we've got When things aren't what they seem And creatures bear their teeth Looking for a snack Look twice, but don't look back Blood on the air sends out a call Gorgeous gastronomy Raw meat that can be That can be eaten by all Instinctively, claws extend You can't pretend You are a scavenger Thrown together and torn apart Like what we like and get what we've got Thrown together and torn apart Like what we like and get what we've got Fight for it. Don't miss the kill Your ego gets hit And they all want a piece Yeah they all want a piece of They want a piece of you too I'll lick my wounds Survive with my pride You can't pretend You are a scavenger Thrown together and torn apart Like what we like and get what we've got Thrown together and torn apart Like what we like and get what we've got Thrown together and torn apart Like what we like and get what we've got Thrown together and torn apart Like what we like and get what we've got Thrown together and torn apart Like what we like and get what we've got Thrown together and torn apart Like what we like and get what we've got Thrown together and torn apart Like what we like and get what we've got Thrown together and torn apart Like what we like and get what we've got Thrown together and torn apart Like what we like and get what we've got

Nobody knows All we've been through I will extend that to everyone As long as you pretend you're having fun Sometimes I feel like I am waiting for the end of the world We've got our fingers on the wheel and every knuckle is curled If only for tonight It'll be alright Let it fall Let it fall Let it fall I'm tired of playing Hairs are greying I'm just saying And we're all grown up Hello Los Angeles You can handle this I can take a risk If that's what you want Sometimes I feel like I am waiting for the end of the world We've got our fingers on the wheel and every knuckle is curled If only for tonight It'll be alright Let it fall Let it fall Let it fall For as far back as I can recall I thought for sure there'd be an end to this all But the world keeps turning And the fires keeps burning And what once seemed big now feels so small Is this what I came here for Is this what I'm waiting for How will it all play out Is this what I came here for Is this what I'm waiting for How will it all play out Sometimes I feel like I am waiting for the end of the world We've got our fingers on the wheel and every knuckle is curled If only for tonight It'll be alright Let it fall Let it fall Let it fall Let it fall Let it fall Let it fall Don't let it fall Let it fall Let it fall
