To the Coast

from Houses by Pet Lions

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Two years after Soft Right, Pet Lions returns with their debut full-length Houses (release date May 10, 2011), bringing warmth, depth, and maturity to the punchy pop of their debut EP. Produced by Neil Strauch (Margot & the Nuclear So and So’s, Iron and Wine, Bonnie “Prince” Billy), Houses shows Pet Lions moving from home to home, sharing auditory real estate with power-pop mainstays Phoenix, art stars Deerhunter and Sonic Youth, and synth nostalgists Tears For Fears and OMD. With Houses, Pet Lions has channeled regret, desire, and hope into a noisy yet melodic whole – for the first time, they feel right at home.

Still frozen forty walls is a home
We'll run through the woods like fake animals
Hydrosis at this time of the year
Won't bring your dark brown eyes over here
East wing like a spy in your estate
Medieval cartography on display
Let go I can wait for you in the hall
Don't care tell me everything you want

Follow me to the coast
I've only been there once before

Front door left open like a ghost
Frontiers we filmed on home video
Upstairs in the bedroom where we grew old
Downstairs in a colorless studio
Back there for you these red cigarettes
Two left with your old Stiv Bators cassettes
Don't go there's so much I still haven't said
Still no do you miss me more I don't know

Follow me to the coast
I've only been there once before
Follow me to the coast
This time we'll stay for months and more
