I love Dear Ears a lot, and I really love the song Overthinking because I do that a lot. It's good to hear a song that recognizes that you have this problem and relaxes you. It's wonderful!
Favorite track: Overthinking.
Meet Whitney Wilde, Ashley Armstrong and Leslie Laine. Three girls who met through vine and got help from their supporters to meet together in NYC to make this album.
released July 31, 2015
We would first like to thank our supporters! Without you, Ashley wouldn't have been able to come around the time Leslie did, and we wouldn't even have thought to make an album to begin with. You are not only our supporters, but our motivators. Next we would like to thank our family and friends for putting positive energy into what we love to do. Thank you Towner Galaher for taking Ashley and Whitney camping and much more, it got our creative flow going and we came up with a fun song. Thank you Powers for encouraging your employee to be as creative as possible and allowing her to take time off in order to do so.Thank you Jake Horgan for taking our incredible album cover while there were bugs and cars that could have possibly killed us all. Thank you C. Marcus DiMarco for using your headlights to shine on us for the album cover. Thank you Chris Bingham for the feedback during the recording process and helping us out during the photoshoot. Thank you Vine for existing, otherwise we wouldn't have ever met. This has truly been an incredible experience and we hope for more to come soon.
Just settle down, just ease your mind.
Just close your eyes, everything will be fine.
It's not that bad.
Throw me in the fire and watch me burn.
Yeah you are overthinking.
Don't worry, not that bad.
Track Name: What Was That?
In this world I guess I was kinda movin’ slow and
All I hear these days, is everyone can be improving
And I feel the same, but I don’t know what I’m doin’
Hoping soon to come, is something way mind blowin’
All I ever think is “what was that?”
I’m so dumb, it’s just sad
All my actions lead to “what was that?”
Becoming human, is harder than I had pictured
Cause I always think, who will say “i am with her”
I am just a fool, now I know why people use liquor
But I don’t want life to seem like one giant blur
I don’t know why I’m getting frustrated
Over all the small things
Acting like I am just truly jaded
Gives me this reason to sing
But I don’t want that, I just want the simple route
Surrounded by tension and nonsense, find me a way out
Track Name: Wild Thing
What a mess
You came stomping through the wilderness
And I could tell you didn't feel your best
You'd been out all night
Look at you
Busy howling at that big full moon
Suddenly you don't know what to do
Because you miss the light
Baby I'll take care of you
I know that's not what most people do
But your big sharp teeth
They don't scare me
So darlin just come to my bed
Lay down your horns and heavy head
Right next to me
You wild thing
You wild thingggg
Turning on and off like fireflies
There's no need to tell me pretty lies
I won't cage you in
Go run free
In your world of stars and make believe
Pages filled with Things that dreamers dream
I'll see you again
Track Name: Aw Man
Here I go again,
Another freaking guy
Was this all planned?
No maybe he’s the one
He looks so familiar
Oh yeah that’s right,
Of course he has a girl
What’s an off and on thing?
You’re having just a fling?
Should I invest my time
What should I bring
Maybe just my body,
Or maybe my heart
Or will you just stop me
Before we even start
I don’t know why I do this
You only know one thing
They tell me this is nonsense
We could just ignore them
My nerves get all rattled
When you pass by
My mind and body battle
Debating whether to tell you hi,
To tell you I want you,
But what if its a lie
I go for the challenge
Which that you are.
But I’m sure by now
You find me bizarre
But I can’t help it,
I feel like a nerd,
Yeah you are so damn hip,
Its what I prefer
Here I go again,
Acting like a child
In front of all your friends
Here I go again,
Can’t get a read on you
Can you tell me where you stand
Here I go again
Track Name: Sorry Ashley
I'm sorry Ashley,
I didn't mean to get you sick.
I promise that this was just all purely an accident.
Soon enough you'll feel so much better that you'll be able to sing with all of us,
But in the meantime you can rest 'til you can sing along with this.
It's ok, I think I feel better than before.
It's my chance, now I can sing even more.
- With earnest lyrics and a musical leash that constantly tugs you along, Asa Martin immediately made this an album I wanted to listen to a second time. Blasts of high energy end up tempered by soft sincerity, and the final result is great. Get it. franklylost
