Adventures In The Underground

4 albums

Adventures in the Underground is a new band from LA, made up of collaborators Kevin Hinman and Luke Richmond. They met studying film at Cal State Long Beach, and developed their collaborative relationship during the years they spent working odd jobs in film and TV after graduation. Their musical collaboration has spanned several LA bands, including The Kendricks. After the creative strands of their previous bands frayed in different directions, they decided to form Adventures in the Underground, building the project around the style and collaborative approach they’ve built over time, which pairs Kevin’s musical talents, and influences like Arcade Fire, The Strokes, Cold War Kids, The War on Drugs, with Luke’s addictions to history and literature.

Adventures in the Underground has just released two singles and is currently finishing their debut EP, out later this fall. Produced by Mario Borgatta and Steve Pagano of the band thanks., their music fuses influences from contemporary pop and classic rock, Russian literature and Shakespeare, history, personal experience, and current events.

Their latest single Streetlight has been described as “Indie Rock that packs a punch, with perfectly complimented melodies and vocals that have a unique, special growl.”

Lyrics:

Woman on fire on a street corner One more hit gonna do her over Woman on fire on a street corner One more hit Bright shapes in the whitelight?Cold eyes just before the midnight When they say they want a new life End up with the same old strife Half-blind, you don’t play fair?Dip the scales when my eyes not there Everybody gives a little care?Then leaves it alone Keep on trying?To be free of you?I don’t lie?I don’t feel?I don’t need this truth These arms?Aren’t for me?I just wanted it all?I just can’t feel at all All alone?All alone?I stay alone White dream in the hipster scene?Torn apart and it never cuts clean?I can see you out there in the cold, dark, mean world Blacklight by the backstair?Take it out yeah you know what’s there?I can tell you couldn’t bear just to leave it alone Keep on trying To be free of you I don’t lie?I don’t feel I don’t need this truth These arms?Aren’t for me?I just wanted it all I just can’t feel at all All alone?All alone?I stay alone You do what you do?You do what you do you?You do what you do you?You know it all comes back to you You do what you do?You do what you do you?You do what you do you?You know it all comes back to you Woman on fire on a street corner One more hit gonna do her over Woman on fire on a street corner One more hit gonna do her over Woman on fire on a street corner One more hit gonna do her over Woman on fire on a street corner One more hit Do it over Keep on trying?To be free of you?I don’t lie?I don’t feel?I don’t need this truth These arms?Aren’t for me?I just wanted it all?I just can’t feel at all All alone?All alone?I stay alone

Lyrics:

Winter turns to fall?Morning darkens all?And the roaring sun it starts to fall You’re a war machine?Living hard and mean?No I can’t believe what you want to see All the time you’ve seen Didn’t look between the lines of all those books you read Devil dancing on a garden wall?Ain’t it funny you’re the one that falls Was it you I heard that crying call And you’d rather just be one?In the gullet of a maxim gun?Burning through the masses of the one’s for whom your god is young And you’d rather hold some other’s son?Keep me marching to the restless drum?Oh my lover, my love, oh what have I done??More than should anyone Just a war machine?Living hard and mean?You wouldn’t care to know the blood I’ve seen Hundred thousand lives?Scattered over little miles?Sacred medals in the sunlight gleam And you’d rather just be one?In the gullet of a maxim gun?Burning through the masses of the one’s for whom your god is young And you’d rather hold some other’s son?Keep me marching to the restless drum?Oh my lover, beloved, oh what have I done? Though you’re far away You’ll never let me go?Though you’ll never stoop to show You’re kingdom’s crown?Bound in bones you’ve broken down In a court of silent sound Just a war machine?Living hard and mean?You didn’t look between the lines I’m on a garden wall?Laughing while the garden falls?And I smile to see the blood that love can breed Just a war machine You’re a war machine You’re a war machine My love oh my lover

Lyrics:

Cool down By the side of the road You got a strawberry cough With a lion in your throat You got to Keep out Of the cuttin’ man’s game While the others they-fall You still stay just the same I love your Sweet smile And the turn of your lip You’re the sweetest little devil With your Lucifer kiss I said I Can’t stop But I’ll throw you a line Just watch out in this crowd You might not catch it time. I said There’s a catch if you want it There’s a catch if you feel on the floor There’s a catch in the gutter You just can’t You can’t catch it no more Take a hand from another Take a lift when you’re riding alone Watch a light when it sputters You take the long way home. Take aim Now your life is alive You got me stuck in a job And I’m taking your lines You tell me Outside Now you old chicken shit Without a foot in the grave You’ll never know how to live This is the Last time There’s no way to align The dreams you got in your head With the vision in mine I missed a Clean shot Now I’m marching alone She’s taking him in her hands I’m missing her in my bones There’s a catch if you want it There’s a catch if you feel on the floor There’s a catch in the gutter You just can’t You can’t catch it no more Take a hand from another Take a lift when you’re riding alone Watch a light when it sputters You take the long way home. This what you wanted? This how you want it baby? You picked the losing side of the winning money This how you need it Why don’t you come and say Why don’t you say you love me where they all can see it There’s a catch if you want it There’s a catch if you feel on the floor There’s a catch in the gutter You just can’t You can’t catch it no more Take a hand from another Take a lift when you’re riding alone Watch a light when it sputters You take the long way home.

Lyrics:

There’s a light in the northwest tower See it burning in the witching hour And you know oh you know yeah you know They’re gonna burn it down Paris wolves in the daylight street Long of fang and their bellies lean Oh you mothers don’t you take your children To the northwest tower But they tell me that they know your name You been hiding in the belfry in shame There’s a hundred on the steps below Saying demons hide within the winter snow Hiding down below Yeah I know In the winter snow Spot of blood in the midnight dream She earned her baby in a limousine In the lamplight of a city getting down With a higher power All this gathers in the starless night Tracing veins, hold ‘em pale and tight Did you learn your lesson in the shadow of a burning tower? No But I tell you that I know his name I been hiding in the churchyard in shame I been speaking to the dead below I been hearing things the living never know And I see it clear There’s something in the air Some blood I can see it They can smell it Yeah they smell this fear Let it go It’s what I know I can’t disclose But here’s a little show Now don’t tell me you don’t know my name I been hiding in the shelter of fame I see millions on the steps below Begging demons out to show us where to go And this cauldron of a million lives White hot tower with a burning fire I can feel the wind, I feel it blow Jacob here’s your chain Though you wear it you won’t know No, no, no, no Though you wear it Jacob, oh you won’t know No, no, no, no Let it go
