The Head Chord - EP1 (Darkwave Americana / Southern Gothic) from La Belle Epoque Triple EP
Watch the video for Coma! www.headshy.com/video

Now this is a concept LP. An album made up of three HeadShy EPs, The Head, Heart, and Base Chords, they combine across velvet stained lounges in a darkwave americana for the soul, while gothic jazz floats across waves of minimalistic trip-hopped grooves before falling into oceans of melancholic depth. Touches of Portishead sadness filter through 4AD-ish haunting neo-psychedelic pop, like what might happen if R.E.M. joined with The Devics to cover songs by Nick Cave and Nina Simone. Lisa Lipkin’s vocals feel timeless in their beauty, like you’re lying on a bed of sorrow with murder ballad pillows, waiting for love to give you that sly little wink before it vanishes into the moonlight." - THE BIG TAKEOVER (Spring issue #74 on stands now)

Track Name: Sister
So closed down
You're weak, soon you'll drown

You think a razor makes you feel alive
Deep enough allows you to survive

Time slows down - The world still spins around
They'll give you a reason to come but you'll never love anyone

Take a razor cut your worldly ties
Deep enough, no need to say goodbye

Goodbye

Cold, cold in the ground
No second chance to turn it 'round

You think a razor makes you feel alive
Deep enough to touch the hurt inside
Track Name: Lead Me Home
So, so we see what we're made of and
Don't, don't be afraid, this is how I
Know, I know we've got what it takes to
Throw, throw away all our mistakes and

Lead me home

Stop, stop what you're doing, it's quite a
Show, show me you mean what you say and
Go. go and make the attempt I
Know, know we can make it there, just please

Lead me home

Somebody take me out of here
I couldn't stay here full of fear
So why don't you take me back or
Leave me on my own

Time, time is our side I think you
Know, I know there's a reason you can't let
Go. go and try to be free I
Know, I know we'll be fine if you'd just please Lead Me Home
Track Name: Requiem For The Living
Don't lie, you don't know why you're here and you don't see things so clear. I can tell that you don't, you don't know who you are
You never could see that far. I know

Now you're gone and bound to live alone and your sun has passed but you can't go home

Goodbye, but you're never really here and you have so much to fear. I know that you don't, you don't know who you are
You never could see that far, I can tell

Now you're gone and bound to live alone and your sun has passed but you can't go home

Sometimes the truth is so bitter clear and so very hard to hear. You can never go home
Track Name: Faith
You've given them everything, but they'll always want something new You know it's true
They've taken your reason, left you with nothing, they always do
But you'll shine through

Wait, don't be down, just have some faith don't be down
Wait, don't be down, just have some faith don't be down

Don't ever believe them, they'll smile and then tell you “you are through”
It's never true
Hey, you can deceive them, they're looking for people who know the rules. A ship of fools

Wait, don't be down, just have some faith don't be down
Wait, don't be down, just have some faith don't be down

Guilty people don't believe in fate
Don't be afraid to come outside
Just breathe the air and feel alive
Don't be so, don't you be so down

Wait, don't be down, just have some faith don't be down
Wait, don't be down, just have some faith don't be down

The world keeps on turning, your heart keeps yearning for something new. You’re never through
