Trans Am of hissing static A moth in your light Film in your camera The wake from the night Feathers turn to anchors Feathers turn to anchors Curve in the small of my back The glint in your eye In and out our lungs billowing The fall and the rise Feathers turn to anchors Feathers turn to anchors Feathers turn to anchors Feathers turn to anchors Ha

She is egoless in her awe and bend The last of her kind to inspire Oh we bow our heads We weep, we dread Oooooo What we can get is the bottom line How quick do we benefit from her design Oh we bow our heads We weep, we dread Oooooo Oooooo Throwing my hands The best of us Blood in the water Numbers carry all our stones Throwing my hands The best of us Blood in the water Numbers carry all our stones

Cool Job 05:15
Let’s pull the blankets over our heads And let the yard rake itself Criss cross our hearts And let a little hope sink in As the tide ebbs and swells Let’s get out Let’s get out of here There’s shapes we’ve never seen Ooooooo Let’s swim out and tie bricks to our maladies Float above our ancient selves Tattoo our bodies Until we have matching limbs Build a mast and set sail Light the driftwood Illuminate our beginnings Put faith in our wisdom teeth Though the flame is restless It knows how to sing It will confess Let’s get out Let’s get out of here There’s shapes we’ve never seen Let’s get out Let’s get out of here There’s shapes we’ve never seen Let’s get out Let’s get out of here There’s shapes we’ve never seen Let’s get out Let’s get out of here There’s shapes we’ve never seen Let’s get out Let’s get out of here There’s shapes we’ve never seen Let’s get out Let’s get out of here There’s shapes we’ve never seen

Oliver 04:09
Shifting broken light Fantom growing life Sleeping in the brine All ours for a time Dangling shoulder To cry on when you were older Interwoven my skin was your skin Half baked, half right Half sick, half life Half closed, half cry Half yours, half mine Pale surface Autumn sparrow wingless Tho we never met My body won’t forget Plowing forward Loving and letting go Hollowed sternum Praying for a window Half baked, half right Half sick, half light Half closed, half cry Half yours and half mine Half baked, half right Half sick, half light Half closed, half cry Half yours and half mine Half baked, half right Half sick, half light Half closed, half cry Half yours and half mine Half baked, half right Half sick, half light Half closed, half cry Half yours and half mine

Cover of darkness Wood and canvas Little girls, little ghosts On our brooms No parachutes We’ve lost men We’re on our own One under each wing Idle the engine and sing Moon, smoke, frost and fight We are the witches of the night Red army 400 unseen Freezing hands, no radios Our learning curve Last resort to serve Pilots, unsung heros One under each wing Idle the engine and sing Moon, smoke, frost and fight We are the witches of the night One under each wing (each wing) Idle the engine and sing (each wing) Moon, smoke, frost and fight (and fight) We are the witches of the night We are the witches of the night

Metric 05:04
You are hardly measured Grasping at aversion exactly unsure There is no peace in what you seek The dying of leaves Sawdust at your feet from what you thought that you planted Sinking back into shape, digging your heels Inclusive nerves mitigate Come inside, double back little calico We can refrain, we can reframe, we can refrain The metric’s yours alone to assign Vast, vain, violent The metric’s yours alone to assign Vast, vain, violent The metric’s yours alone to assign Vast, vain, violent The metric’s yours alone to assign Vast, vain, violent The metric’s yours alone to assign Vast, vain, violent The metric’s yours alone to assign Vast, vain, violent
7.
What lessons I’ve learned From this season turned Minutes of singing sleep Where the spoon stirs the cup that the zipless keep Self, you’re a mess With secret sadness Filling a whole with salt and sweet The dance is tiresome Weary legs gone numb Writing with your pen While the gloves wet with rain are lost again Self, you’re a mess with secret sadness God-sized hole where you will sleep Self you’re a mess with secret sadness Filling a whole with salt and sweet

Bells 03:21
As I love yourself better than me This machine will die eventually Pray for penance to be lite So love your pain right to death and shine brightly It’s dangerous to forget all the crawling. As I circle inside the invisible ring This machine may not be communicating Handrails keep us upright So love your pain right to death and shine brightly It’s dangerous to forget all the crawling Love yourself better than me This machine will die eventually Love yourself better than me This machine will die eventually

B. Gentle 04:35
The very steps, so bright and bending Simple sparrow help me find Where I’ve been and where we did the planting I sing and you dive For the first time we begin For the first time we begin Oooooo There was no gold in our darkness No night to sooth our wounds Our hearts are dark as the soil Swollen like balloons For the first time we begin For the first time we begin Ooooo Ooooo A hole in me like a hollow tree Downright hidden were the vines A ray seeping through a canopy Imparting hunger for incline A hole in me like a hollow tree Downright hidden were the vines A ray seeping through a canopy Imparting hunger for incline For the first time we begin For the first time we begin Ooooo Ooooo Ooooo

It’s not so easy to uncover without splitting the seams My hands are mismatched and unaware Pinnacles of what I’ve succumbed to I thought I was managing the weight and the unseen The flicker, the distress, the gravity Rusted anchor pull me down Rusted anchor pull me down It’s beyond my grasp, I am prone to shake and run before the chase My eyes are blind to who steers the ship And to see the shape I’ve conformed to I thought I was managing the weight and the unseen The flicker, the distress, the gravity Rusted anchor pull me down Rusted anchor pull me down Rusted anchor pull me down Rusted anchor pull me down Rusted anchor pull me down Rusted anchor pull me down Rusted anchor pull me down Rusted anchor pull me down Rusted anchor pull me down Rusted anchor pull me down Rusted anchor pull me down Rusted anchor pull me down

"Blood in the Water, the second album by New York’s LAPÊCHE, walks the line between nature and nurture, objective reality and subjective perspective, joy and pain, suffering and hope, and addiction and sobriety.

Since 2016, singer and guitarist Krista Diem, her husband and bassist David Diem (of 12 Hour Turn), guitarist Drew DeMaio (Asshole Parade, Floor, Strikeforce Diablo), and drummer Jeff Gensterblum (Small Brown Bike, Able Baker Fox) have fused folk-inspired melodies with sonic backdrops inspired by punk aesthetics, DIY scenes, and basement shows. As they’ve blossomed from a singer with a backing band to a full-blown collaboration, their songs have found the power to dive deep while shining brightly, pushing toward personal growth as we collectively stare down the void."
