The round two single off their upcoming debut LP, Cowboy Presidents, is a hard look in the mirror at how we got where we’re at, a body blow to put you back where you belong -- Underneath Scum Light. Watch the video at youtu.be/kiyiy9B-3UQ


to me it seems obscene
all the weed
and the cheap whiskey
(and so much more caffeine)
that i drink and think
why can’t i fall asleep?
and if i dream
great unseen cosmic
failure surrounds me
so i’m not going home
these cowboy kids
become cowboy presidents
and i’ll admit
that we played our part in it
we used to sleep all day
stay inside and
watch the paint dry
it never felt like
it was wasted time
in the whites of yr daydreaming eyes
won’t let myself get lost this time
the receiver’s blown
but there’s no way that i’m going home


from Underneath Scum Light, released December 31, 2022
