steveinsocal "…it's been 6 years since Simon Landry & Anne-Marie Campbell enchanted us with the chill vibes of their looping synths and staccato beats, all crowned by Anne's angelic vocals… and while the duo's long-awaited sophomore album does stray too far from the script, their lush and languid electro-pop tunes, bitter-sweet and autobiographical lyrics evoking memories of loves won, lost and reminisced, are once again simply captivating…"

Are we going out tonight or should we stay in? Say, I’m just fine with eating this food again I don’t know why I chase the clouds like I really want to feel the rain I dream out loud I get down to it in my way I don’t know why I want to make you cry You are my whole life, my artifice Sitting in plain sight, you can’t hear this At the open mic poetry night This is where we’re sealing it with a kiss Trade in the good fight for ordinary bliss At the open mic poetry night I carry a slight, slight fever at the tip of my pen But are we too tired for another revolution, friend Are we just fine? Say, let’s give up watch the white falling from above Turn up our collars, I’ll give you my winter love My winter love

The pictures fly by The notes flow like a river running into a greater mess It makes me feel high You make me want a new beginning I know it’s a lot to confess The still life slide show on the ceiling Is all I have been seeing I’m ready for a different feeling Crush my favourite earrings First thing in the morning Who can ever tell if long gone are our days of glory? If best of times have been spent? I threw my youth away walking in a daze, so sorry Daylight hits the edge of our bed I want it this time I want you and our rest stop mornings I know it’s a lot to confess My secrets piled high I wish you warm at every dawning We both deserve no less

I’m happy you chose to go that night On a train to the coast with neon lights I travel every day through stories read On a west-facing chair, sun around my head I’m happy you chose to go The weather was good though it’s a haze I made a new home on moving day And even if we ever grow apart l cut up little pieces of your heart So even if we end up in the dark I’ll hold them in my pocket it’s a start The wrong vase for a rose, that’s all right I’ll be using up the floor for things I write Drinking bottles from the back of the cabinet Falling into bed wearing my headsets The wrong vase for a rose, that’s all right Are you sitting at your window looking out tonight? On a train to the coast, it never stops You’re all they’ve got, these places want you The weather was good though it’s a haze I made a new home on moving day And even if we ever grow apart l cut up little pieces of your heart So even if we end up in the dark I’ll hold them in my pocket it’s a start And even if we ever grow apart l cut up little pieces of your heart So even if we end up in the dark Your body is a living work of art

Wrote you one more birthday letter Life’s a flash in the pan At the very end of October I’m not making any plans Wrote you one more birthday letter Did you read what it said? How the world can become much brighter When the season turns to red Ferdinand my easy-going man Understand Go easy on me, man I’ve been dying trying to reach you Chasing shadows in the night Dabbing furniture with your perfume Conversations in my mind All my loving is turning into An empty promise, painted white I’ll be staying up past the curfew In the bars of Morin-Heights

How I never thought I would meet you then be Sharing all my nineties high school stories, late fees How I never thought I would leave you lonely Sure hope all these tears we cry be for something worthy Goodbye City see the promise Single speckle in my iris My phone glows incandescent I just want to blow up and do my thing Endless crowd cheering Who could ever ask for more? I know you like to build a fire, natural thrills Boy, what are you fearing? Is it like a perfect storm? I ain’t going back to the bleachers I’ll be coming up with new features I’ll be reaching out for my future I ain’t going back to the bleachers

I’m lying in my long chair in the afternoon sun Is he ever the one? Who cares it’s all for fun He’s turning up the music, pulling up in a Buick Is he ever the one? Who cares it’s all for fun Dreams will fade away with every new day In your white t-shirt get ready for work I left fresh-cut fruit I left it all for you Tu vas tout foutre en l’air Mon oiseau de malheur Tu vas tout foutre en l’air Mon oiseau de malheur Tu vas tout foutre en l’air The sound of screeching tires, I am so sleepy tired Today we feel the weather, today we come together There’s loving beyond summer, the world is growing warmer Today we feel the weather, today we come together Chemise repassée au petit matin Les rêves clairsemés d’un revers de la main Les fruits découpés Puis tu t’es défilé

Bomb in the backseat I feel your heartbeat So keep the tears from falling from your eyes I feel your heartbeat We’ll find a way to cheat So don’t you be too quick to cry It girl was born so soon Under a full moon As they were throwing salt on ice It girl’s the living proof Emotion through the roof So don’t you be too quick to cry Bomb in the backseat I feel your heartbeat So keep the tears from falling from your eyes She gets what she wants It girl knows you got it She gets what she wants You’ll lose if you fight it

Is it me or are we all missing in the streets? Car on neutral down the hill with no one in the driver’s seat Is it me or are we all missing in the cold? Dreams are just a canvas on which colours silently explode I want to be wrong, be right for you one day Climb into your lust, your light and hear you say Instant classic you’ve got it made Instant classic you’re so fucking great Instant classic you’ve got it made I set fire to the curtains, washed the sheets No this new apartment isn’t really changing how I feel I kept the piece of paper crumpled up in my purse You wrote ‘I want out, I want it all, I’m making matters worse’ Laying on my side so you might just look at me With all my attempts and tries, thing of beauty I want to be wrong, be right for you one day Climb into your lust, your light and hear you say

I was hiding, living with the seasons I was hiding for different reasons Then I saw it on the far horizon By the nightfall a star was rising In providence I don’t think I believe Coincidence or serendipity But tonight I feel it watching over me Like a rising star across a sullen sea I came so far, moved so quietly How did you get to me? You are like a rising star across the sullen sea How did you get to me? Hold me here or set my spirit free Here you are a rising star Endless city of several million I’m a woman of a few connections When I saw you in a crowded station Felt I had been through this situation There’s something in you that I recognize I don’t dare to look you in the eyes In providence I don’t think I believe But tonight I feel it watching over me

Boy wonder and me all day making beats I’d bring us hot gin and tea with something to eat Boy wonder and me all day making beats Come listen, come closer, hear It’s not for the weak There are ghosts in every place our music resonated On bedroom floors, in rented space We once were Just a couple of gifted children Brushing knots in our golden locks Just a couple of gifted children With each other around the clock If ever need be I’m saving this beat I can’t shake these fantasies From my old PC There are ghosts everywhere our music on the air On late-night shows, Victoria Square We once were Just a couple of gifted children Brushing knots in our golden locks Just a couple of gifted children With each other around the clock I know just what to say if I drop you a line I’m alone let these fantasies dance in my mind I know it’s not the same if I drop you a line I’m alone let these fantasies dance in my mind
