about

Little Cinema New York

We're an indie pop band that lives between Brooklyn and Austin. We love old books, balmy weather, star charts and Basquiat. Our spirit animal is Sir Ernest Shackleton and our first album is about Adventure. We don't care for the red thread, the Moon in Capricorn or the Yankees. Definitely not the Yankees.

Track Name: Diving Board
The light from distant stars makes up for battle scars:
A scratch and scrape climbing over the gate.
Beneath the summer trees, stretched out like casualties:
The clothes we wore to the party before.

You're on the diving board, the diving board
Up on the diving board, the diving board

There's so much to learn about you. Here in the dark I've found you:
Tan-lines showing: Your smile is so knowing, oh.
One foot upon the ladder. You ask me "What's the matter?"
The breeze comes through. You're shivering, too.

We're on the diving board, the diving board
Up on the diving board, the diving board

If I decide to dive in deep
Will this become a raging sea?
Or will the waters melt with me?
With you beside me
Please come find me.

You're laughing nervously and I'm reaching out for your hand
Please proceed overboard with me.
The crickets all go silent. The world's intent on finding
What happens next? Just hold your breath.

Jump from the diving board, the diving board
Off of the diving board, the diving board

If I decide to dive in deep
Will this become a raging sea?
Or will the waters melt with me?
When you're beside me…

If I decide to dive in deep
Will this become a raging sea?
Or will the waters melt with me?
If you're beside me…
Please come find me.
Track Name: Ton of Bricks
You're a figurine, so statuesque
Cold marble underneath that dress
You wear the year on your painted lips, you know
Putting us on guard with caustic quips and barbs and slings and arrows

Love, you have been hurt
Just like everyone on earth
Love, you can't resist forever

Tonight you sleep with the TV on
We can watch it flash on your curtains drawn (across your bedroom window)
You'll be locked away in your castle high
Past snakes and snares and pits so deep that few would even try

But love will find a way
Past every trap you lay
Love will hit you like a ton of bricks

You fear the garden path, but you still miss all the fruits and flowers
Resist the garden path, but love you know it is beyond your power

Love will find a way
Past every trap you lay
Love will hit you like a ton of bricks

Love will find a way
No matter what you say
Love will hit you like a ton of bricks
