I have a million things that I should be doing. Don’t feel like chewing on that right now. I’ve want my CBD latte, with my butt in the sand so I can plan what happens next. I’ve got a list beyond Atlantis. I feel good and accomplished. Things are picking up now. I’m diving into a little comfort. Just a means to consort, with a mind that yields high. We take a trip and do some yoga, meditate then turn it over, so we can go back to the grind. Icing a burn helps what’s at hand, but the flame still takes command, and then I’m left to soothe the scars. I’m loving where I am, and I love where I’m going. Will you hold hand when we leave the ground. I want sweet relief, not an answer to my problems. They’ll be there when I want them, but right now they’re fine. I’m stressed, but good, doing what I’m loving. Trying to fit some fun in along the way. Unplug, unwind, is what the kids are doing. If I let go will I be ruined? Will I loose my steam? The pendulum is always swinging, cutting through incessant ringing. Impossible to take sides. Working til’ the day is over, but fit in some time to let go. Want to do more than survive. I love where I am. I love where I’m going. Will you hold hand when we leave the ground? I have a million things, that I should be doing, but I’m not chewing on that right now.

How long does it take, For me to lose my cool? How long does it take, For me to lose my cool? I need a minute, That lasts an hour, That lasts a day That lasts awhile, Until I’m Okay. I need a minute, That lasts an hour, That lasts a day That lasts a while, Until i’m awake. I’m sorry but I had a bad day. I didn’t mean to take it out on you that way. I’m sorry but I had a bad day. I didn’t mean to take it out on you that way. Normally I wouldn’t care that much, But let’s be real we know, i’ve lit the fuze. It’s an ordeal I know i’ll lose, But let’s be real right now, It’s what I choose. Now I’m letting words slip out my mouth that I don’t know. Talking at you, would be better if I just would go Sit by myself, take a walk, take a nap, eat some food. Take the time I need to be better than my mood. Better than my mood. Better than my mood. I’m sorry but I had a bad day. didn’t mean to take it out on you that way. I’m sorry but I had a bad day. didn’t mean to take it out on you that way. I’m sorry but I had a bad day. didn’t mean to take it out on you that way. I’m sorry but I had a bad day. didn’t mean to take it out on you that way. Take it out on you. Take it, take it out on you Did I take it out on you? (i’m so sorry that I do) This jaded view I didn’t choose Depressive noose is feeling loose. I’m feeling that I may slip through. I’m gonna shake this shit loose This shit loose, this shit loose, this shit loose. I need a minute, That lasts an hour, That lasts a day That lasts awhile, Until i’m awake. I’m sorry but I had a bad day. didn’t mean to take it out on you that way. I’m sorry but I had a bad day. didn’t mean to take it out on you that way. I’m sorry but I had a bad day. didn’t mean to take it out on you that way. I’m sorry but I had a bad day. didn’t mean to take it out on you that way. (I’m sorry) I’m sorry but I had a bad day. didn’t mean to take it out on you that way. I’m sorry but I had a bad day. didn’t mean to take it out on you that way. (Didn’t mean to take it out) I’m sorry but I had a bad day. didn’t mean to take it out on you that way. I’m sorry but I had a bad day. didn’t mean to take it out on you that way. Take it out on you, Take it, take it out on you. Take it out on you Ta-ta-take it out on you.

Everything you want but maybe you’re not ready for me. Anything you want so what you going to say? Everything I want but baby you’re not ready for me. Makes me want to fly away.

My feet are moving forward. You redirect me towards, Holding me back, like you’re allowed To try to flip my mind upside down. Put the glass in my hand, To drown in Koolaid land.

Am I alone (repeated) How long was I sleeping? (repeated) How long was I sleeping? Was I dreaming? Am I alone? Who’s on my team? I open my eyes, still glistening from the screen. Oh how the time flies when you are not feeling. Notify me when the world turns. I’m spinning. Reality fading away. How long was I sleeping? Was I dreaming? Am I alone? Who’s on my team? I want to guide you. Don’t you want to bring me inside? I wouldn’t lie to you. Don’t you want to give me your mind. I tried to be like you. My numbers define you. Try not to fade away How long was I sleeping? Was I dreaming? Am I alone? Who’s on my team? How long was I sleeping? Was I dreaming? Ride boy. Don’t you want to meet me inside boy? Oh I want to ride boy. Don’t you want to meet me? Don’t you want to meet me? Don’t you want to meet me? Oooh. I want to ride. Ride boy. Don’t you want to meet me inside boy? Oh I want to ride boy. Don’t you want to meet me? Don’t you want to meet me? Don’t you want to meet me? Oooh. I want to ride. Ride boy. Don’t you want to meet me inside boy? Oh I want to ride boy. Don’t you want to meet me? Don’t you want to meet me? Don’t you want to meet me?

Colitas grown kaleidoscope, gives me hope. California setting sun. Rip my heart out just for fun. Beverly burning hills of late, show me love I’ll stay awake. Beverly burning hills of late, show me love. Pink and orange, ooh they hypnotize. Open up your sleepy eyes, and let me in. Pink and orange, ooh they hypnotize. Open up your sleepy eyes, and let me in. Sometimes you choose to ignore me. Foggy when you don’t see me at all. Wrapped up in your bullshit, you can’t admit that you made the choice not to call. Stop chasing after that paper trail. You are chasing your own tail. Beverly burning hills of late, show me love I’ll stay away. Beverly burning hills of late, show me love. Pink and orange, ooh they hypnotize. Open up your sleepy eyes, and let me in. Pink and orange, ooh they hypnotize. Open up your sleepy eyes, and let me in. (Repeated) Beverly burning hills of late, show me love. (Repeated)

about

This EP was written using a self-created color theory writing workshop. We each wore glasses with colored lenses during every possible waking hour, questioning, could rose colored glasses truly alter our view of the world? Could exterior influence change our interior outlook, and therefore our creative output? Who would we be, and what would we create with a new unbroken perspective?

Approximately six months and five hues later, we witnessed immense change in our songwriting. Daily life, now washed in monochrome, lived in an altered state and shifted the perception of each moment. Highlights, lowlights, and the mundane had taken on new character. Our moods fluxed, artistic preferences changed, and new viewpoints surfaced. The fragility of preferences gained clarity as we morphed into new versions of ourselves with each new shade.

This music was written as new people, with differing experiences of the world. We were Brian and Jane in the world of pink, yellow, blue, orange and green.

about

F I N K E L Los Angeles, California

Jane and Brian Spencer of FINKEL seem to arrive from the near future, appearing with a slight shimmer of a dimension adjacent to our own. With an atmosphere treading the periphery of pop, the duo’s tangible vocal presence overlays hypnotic electro pulsations in a combination that teases out details of last night’s otherworldly dreams and tempts the waking state to return to its astral analog. ... more
