Megan Landess Heard them in Vancouver, Washington. It made me nearly drop my Subway sandwich because holy shit, this band is amazing live. They were so active on stage, it gave me chills. Hoping I can catch them live again. Favorite track: Magnesium Dream.

Scott Jezusko Magnesium Dreams is an insanely powerful album. The opening sequence in Magnesium Dream made me smiley and giddy like a little girl walking to class. But it didn't stop there, it just kept going until Little Sirens, which I thought was just HEAVY. And I like that. Badass album in general. Theres even an older Galaxy Farm style synth-y bass sound.

No favorite song, there'll all too good.

Track Name: Magnesium Dream
Shine, shine.
Even if there’s no justice left.
And light burns down,
down, down, down,
down.
Shine, shine.
It can’t be long till the darkness fades.
The light burns right through your skin tight veil.
We followed the law that you gave us.
Oh, we waited for you to come save us.
We never thought that you’d run for cover and leave us here all alone.
Time after time.
Time after time.
As far as we can tell.
So, shine.
Shine, once again. Shine, once again. Oh, shine.
Don’t turn back.
Shine, that’s when I see that I must keep on. Shine on.
So shine.
Track Name: Rubikon
We’re crossing over the point of no return, no turning back now. You can forget everything from your old life.
I’m gonna brave this storm if it’s with you now.
You can do all you never knew you could.
You followed all the rules so well.
Come to find no one’s keeping score.
I don’t want this for you anymore.
I want you to feel it in your bones and come with me. Won’t you come with me.
People are lining up to tell all that you don’t have and never will. Underneath I know you’re hiding more.
Let your layers fall to the floor.
So, you can see now.
You can see.
Even if we fall apart,
We will know, we will know.
Is it worth trying for?
We will know, we will know. Come with me it’s not pretend, I can show you, I can show. Picture this from your lips,
I can show you, I can show. This is not pretend.
Are you hearing me?
This is not pretend.
Are you listening?
So, just forget everything from your old life.
Track Name: Stand Tall
Made it just in time to rescue me.
Maybe I’ll in time learn not to make mistakes. But we all make mistakes.
Even old mistakes, like the love we made. Spring, summer, winter, fall
Stand tall
Abide in hours passing on.
On and on.
Ah, stand tall.
Give away all that you love and lose it all.
All that you had will be lost, all.
We live in endless revision, stand tall.
With two eyes, I see you in stereo.
Two lies before, before you go.
Two ears to hear you cry a hymn up to the sky.
You fail with all you try.
Rejoice we are alive.
We are alive.
We are alive.
Impressions of four figures before your eyes.
You’ll never forget them.
Impressions of four figures before your eyes.
Ah, stand tall, stand tall. Ah, stand tall, stand tall.
Spring, summer, winter, fall Lose it all
All that you had will be lost Stand tall
Ah lose it all Ah stand tall
Track Name: Pentakon
With my half hands and my half eyes
half mouth and half mind,
I have been symmetry searching for all my life.
Parallel lines running side by side,
will you cross, cross my mind?
Cuz I’ve been given all the wrong answers.

Can you show me?
I’ve been looking for the key to my symmetry. I’ve been wrong so many times before.
I’m searching for symmetry.

Parallel lines joined in one design.
I find you were right and I’ve been asking all the wrong questions.

Give me, give me the answer.
I know you have what I want. You’ve had it all along.
Say it say it.
Give me, give me the answer.
I’ve waited so long, so long, so long.
Not gonna calm down for you now.
Fall on your knees down next to me. I wanna feel your symmetry.
No time for waiting.
I’m ready for you now.
I’m ready for you now. I’m ready.
I’m ready.

I found the key and it’s you, you are my symmetry.
Track Name: Little Sirens
You were born and created in my head.
Sweet siren forgotten, now I want you again.
Ooh, save it for another, save it for another.
Aah, save it for another, save it.

I am lost, lost, lost dancing in your design.
Can I sail, sail away with you another time.
I am lost drowning for you, painted on my mind,
and I’m sinking for another, another, another.

I return for more of your noise, of your noise.
Tie me tight to keep me from your voice.
Ooh, save it for another, save it for another.
Aah, save it for another, save it.

Drowning, I’m drowning, I’m drowning just to hear you sing.
Trying myself for a long time to remember, oh to remember.
Asking myself for a long time: will I forget her, forget her?
Safe sinking down in the see back to the end.
Your siren sound carries me back again.
