about

The fruits of their labour reveal a stunning four track EP titled Body. For their highly anticipated sophomore release they put together four well polished and thoroughly danceable tracks. The songs explore themes of technology and social media, eating disorders and unrequited lust.

Body was recorded in the home studio of member Josh Berry in Cape Town and mastered by Greg Calbi of Sterling Sound creating a perfectly balanced soundtrack for the summer.

Track Name: Follow Me
Upload, what’s the time again
It’s too early
(it doesn’t really matter)
Maybe save it for day end
Live that BDE
(it doesn’t really matter)

Just smile ‘cause you’re on camera
Always makes you feel better
Magic abracadabra

Surrounded by all your friends
Yet so lonely
(does it ever get better)
So much safer in DM’s
Virtual glory
(does it ever get better)

Or stay this bad forever
Deficit in the ledger
Of vital pleasure centers

All that I need is connectivity
Got a date with my screen simply living the dream
All that I need is connectivity
Got a date with my screen simply living the dream
All that I need is connectivity
Got a date with my screen simply living the dream
All that I need is connectivity
Got a date with my screen simply living the dream

How did we even get here
Bandwidth m only censor
It’s written in the data
All blinded happy prisoners

Oh I’ve tried you know I’ve tried to do it
Failed each time and can’t seem to get through it
Oh I’ve tried you know I’ve tried to do it
Failed each time and can’t seem to get through it

All that I need is connectivity
Got a date with my screen simply living the dream
Track Name: Sweating Gold
Roll up your sleeves
Pull up your tights
We’ve got some more and it’s on ice
So please oblige
I know that it seems warm out but it’s snowing inside

We’re good to go she’s got the weed
He’s got the blow
It’s all we need the feeling’s right
It’s not far from where we are
It’s going up tonight

Dj going hard like your work week
Beats that sounds brand new but they’re antique
Waves of sound relentless they don’t stop
We stand holding hands while the beat drops

Now
We dance on our sadness
With one swallow it’s magical
Ecstasy from our madness
Now in heaven we’re sweating gold
Now we dance on our sadness
With one swallow it’s magical
Ecstasy from our madness
Now in heaven we’re sweating gold
It’s not a simple malais
Our regular days the cause of sorrow
Not doctors we medicate
This easy escape is worth tomorrow
And all the things that we do
Don’t call it abuse our chosen pastime
And though it may not seem right
Don’t ruin the vibe
Don’t call it a night

Don’t call it a night
Don’t call it a night
Don’t call it a night
Don’t call it a night
Don’t call it a night
Call it a night
Don’t call it
Don’t call it
Don’t call it
Don’t call it
Don’t call it

Don’t call it a night
Don’t call it a night
Don’t call it a night
Don’t call it a night
Don’t call it a night
Call it a night
Don’t ca ah ah ah
Don’t ca ah ah ah

Dj going hard like your work week
Beats that sounds brand new but they’re antique
Waves of sound relentless, they don’t stop
We stand holding hands while the beat drops

Now, we dance on our sadness
With one swallow it’s magical
Ecstasy from our madness
Now in heaven we’re sweating gold
Now, we dance on our sadness
With one swallow it’s magical
Ecstasy from our madness
Now in heaven we’re sweating gold

Beats that sounds brand new but they’re antique
Waves of sound relentless, they don’t stop
We stand holding hands while the beat drops
Track Name: Low Blow
I’m at a loss for words
And you’re responsible
You’re not like other girls
I’ve heard that one before
Maybe I need to get
You out my system
Easier to forget

But you never even called to
Say you were too bored to
Spend any time in my company
Took a hit right to the ego
Yeah it was a low blow
Knowing that you never wanted me

My healthy self esteem
Begins decaying
Don’t let it get to me
I keep on saying
Easier said than done
Perhaps unhealthy
And also never fun
Waiting for you to want me

But you never even called to
Say you were too bored to
Spend any time in my company
Took a hit right to the ego
Yeah it was a low blow
Knowing that you never wanted me

But you never even called to (I thought that you might have me over again)
Say you were too bored to (After we made out I thought we could be friends)
Spend any time in my company
Took a hit right to the ego
Yeah it was a low blow
Knowing that you never wanted me

Why do I want this so bad?
I’m here again I hate this game
I should move on I know that
But my heart jumps when I hear your name

But you never even called to
Say you were too bored to
Spend any time in my company
Took a hit right to the ego
Yeah it was a low blow
Knowing that you never wanted me

Yeah you never even called to say you were too bored
To spend any time in my company darlin’ I adored you
Kills me when you see my messages still
You just ignore them
At a loss my heart’s bankrupt for you yeah
I can’t afford to keep feeling this way
Track Name: Gym Song
You only care about your body
More into your physique than you are even into me
You say it started as a hobby
But now you protein shake and always count your calories
It ll just seems a bit unhealthy
Don’t get me wrong I’m into body positivity
But now you’re missing every party
Because you’re worried about cheating with the catering

You break your diet and in a state of contrition
The only constant is ultimate sport nutrition
You say uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh
When I reach for the snacks on the counter
And only allow uh uh uh uh uh
Low fat sugar free peanut butter

Variety in conversation
I’ve noticed has begun decreasing pretty drastically
My slowly growing trepidation
‘Cause now you talk about your fitness plan exclusively
I know it’s a point of contention
And we are not the best at always talking openly
But this is now an intervention
Sick of pretending words like ‘pizza’ are profanities


You break your diet and in a state of contrition
The only constant is ultimate sport nutrition
You say uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh
When I reach for the snacks on the counter
And only allow uh uh uh uh uh
Low fat sugar free peanut butter

Push ups
Pull ups
Bench press more pull ups
Protein broccoli
Cheat day is next week
Push ups
Pull ups
Bench press more pull ups
Protein broccoli
Cheat day is next week

You break your diet and in a state of contrition
The only constant is ultimate sport nutrition
You say uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh
When I reach for the snacks on the counter
And only allow uh uh uh uh uh
Low fat sugar free peanut butter
