about

"Weaving together a slew of soft, breezy textures, Before the Glow, the debut album from Columbus, Ohio's Fine Animal sparkles, shuffles and whips around you.

The trio (vocalist/keyboardist Lucy Oaks, drummer KC Wilder, and guitarist/vocalist Kelan Gilbert) boldly explores the limits of electronic expression, taking cues from Air, Bonobo and St. Vincent."

Track Name: When It Happens (it happens all at once)
When It Happens (it happens all at once)

And you'll live a long life
Amongst all of your friends
While that's easy to say
It's so good when you know

It's so good when you know
It's so you good when you-

And I rush and I rush
(can't ignore the rain)
And you push and you'll when I'm gone
(counting endless days)
And we'll go and we'll go
It's so good, Its so good when you know.

You resemble a short future
Assorted troubled past
Locked into a disposition
Of a life that'll never last
(and I rush when I'm gone)

No one knows the way
No one knows the way
Counting endless days
(no one knows the way)
Counting endless days
(can't ignore the rain)
No one knows the way, the way, the way now

And I rush and I rush
(can't ignore the rain)
And you push and you'll when I'm gone
(counting endless days)
And we'll go and we'll go
It's so good, Its so good when you know.
Track Name: Perpetually Waking Up
PERPETUALLY WAKING UP

We share the same point of view
Up on the same kind of ledge

Hollow-
And tangled in the vine
Narrow-
In thought and design
Made with intent to change around a life.
Over-
Outlines on the wall
Lasting-
Despite of it all
Alter. Edit. Project on a screen

(Last seen as a better man)
We share the same point of view
(In the yard with a broken hand)
Up on the same sort of ledge
(Spoke once of his dreams and plans)
People in cars. Planes and things.
Out in their scenes, on the go.

Hollow-
And tangled in the vine
Narrow-
In thought and design
Like a Pharaoh-
Sinking in his chair.
Let’s test our devotion while completely unaware.
Track Name: Old Dollar
OLD DOLLAR

Sample:
(Old Dollar Mamie told-a
Old Dollar Bob well-a
Old Dollar Mamie told-a
Old Dollar Bob well-a)

Never been so tired
Never felt so lonely
All we can pretend
Is a world we lose

I have been a god
I have desperate
And he thinks I’m lovely
In a world I lost

Well you raise ‘em higher let ‘em
Let ‘em drop on down
Well you raise ‘em higher let ‘em
Let ‘em drop on down
Well you raise ‘em higher let ‘em
Let ‘em drop on down
And you won’t know the difference when the sun goes down.
And the sun goes down…
And the sun goes down…

I dare say
It’s something to lean on
But some say
It’s nothing at all

Never been so tired
Never felt so lonely
All we can pretend
Is a world we lose

If I wrote a book
You could be the letters
Filling every page
Beginning to end -
- And into the world

Well you raise ‘em higher let ‘em
Let ‘em drop on down
Well you raise ‘em higher let ‘em
Let ‘em drop on down
Well you raise ‘em higher let ‘em
Let ‘em drop on down
And you won’t know the difference when the sun goes down.
And the sun goes down…
And the sun goes down…
Track Name: Riser
Everything you hoped you’d be
And anything you hoped I was
It leaves without a trace from here
Any everything I hoped you were
Thought and wished and dreamed
It’s lost
And stops me in my tracks each time.

Grew
Tired lies
Tired lives
Tired eyes
This way

Each time
Each time
I fall
As long as you hoped to
Starve if you want to
But only if you hope to

Grew
Tired lies
Tired lives
Tired eyes
This way

Each time
I fall
I land
As long as you hoped to
Starve if you want to
But only if you hope to
Track Name: Portal
(hey, hey, hey, don’t go)
I’d follow you anywhere you go
Just want to be your friend anyway
I’d follow you anywhere you go
Just want to be your friend anyway

It starts with a long stride to space apart
It ends with a deep sigh to lie around
And it’s been a long time for you and me
Well it’s been a short life in her memory

There was a time, there was a time
There was a time when a tree would grow
Theres was a place, there was a place
There was a place where the sky would glow
Track Name: Lay Awake
Lay awake
Lay awake
Don’t forget
Don’t forget
When you’re far away
Far away-

Fast pace. Slow step.
Wide stance. Long sleeves.
It’s just a short drive from here
It just a short drive
Old soul. Young life.
Shy girl. Grey eyes.
She lived a long time ago
She lived a long time.

Turned off all the lights- the lights around.
Saw the houses- from far away, far away.

The snow that falls between words,
builds a space for me, space for me.
Dont’ forget, don’t forget.
When you’re far away. Far away-

Cold hands. Warm heart.
Long face. Short breath.
They let a few strays in here.
They let a few strays.
Quick glance. Long stare.
Sharp tongue. Soft touch.
It’s just a few days from here
It’s just a few days

Turned off all the lights- the lights around.
Saw the houses- from far away, far away.
Track Name: Boarding Area
I've been asleep
For a thousand long years
Under weary skies
All my dreams have died

(**fuck the facts)

I've been asleep
For a thousand long years
Under weary skies
All my dreams have died

(something for your mind, your body and your soul*)

Sink the ships
And burn the fields
Oh boy (a journey of force hot like the sun and wet like the rain*)
Pass thru the storm
See your life torn down
Oh no

Leave all the stars
In the sky
Where they are

(*ryth-matic movements in unison with others prolong and act of sensation with no limits or boundaries, eternity is past, wrong is right, it's the point of greatest intensity, pleasure of the highest sense. Feelings of warmth and security, willing and unwilling sensations of the mind. A condition.)

Now to return
Built of glass
Cast in stone
Stare at the tower
Watch the hands
Move the hour

Sink the ships
And burn the fields
Oh boy (a journey of force hot like the sun and wet like the rain*)
Pass thru the storm
See your life torn down
Oh no

(*A condition. The ultimate seduction. The realm)

**creative common samples: "fuck the facts" and "The Realm"
Track Name: It Was Always For You
Near the old house
Sits the old man
In his garden
He barely sees
(tried to see that, tried to see that way)
He barely sees
(tried to see that, tried to see that way)

I tried to see
And I tried to feel that way
I tried be
I want to see one day
I love it when you-
Tried to see that way
Tried to see that way
Tried to, want to be

Near the old house
Sits the old man
(tried to, want to)
In his garden
(tried to be that)
He barely sees
(tried to see)
He barely sees
He barley sees.

I tried to see
And I tried to feel that way
I tried be
I want to see one day
I love it when you-
Tried to see that way
I tried to see that way
I tried to, I want to
I tried to, I want to
I tired to see that way
Your way.
