Biet And Black

One Album

When Biet Simkin and Jacob Plasse came together in New York City to write and record a self-titled EP, they were seasoned artists with diverse musical backgrounds. Biet, who Moby calls “a remarkable new talent," recorded under the name World War. A singer and lyricist and native New Yorker, her music weaves painful, despondent lyrics into shimmering, sugary pop melodies. Prior to joining forces with Plasse, Biet crafted an electronic sound, opening for Adrien Grenier’s band The Honey Brothers and licensing songs to Joe Fresh and Fred Segal. Plasse, a guitarist, percussionist, pianist and native New Yorker, spent the better part of his 20’s touring South America and the Caribbean with a hugely popular Dominican boy band, playing in venues across the country, from Radio City Music Hall to the Staples Center. Conjoined by a mutual friend, Jacob and Biet set out to make a gritty, analogue record that wove together pop, blues and classic rock and roll. Jacob’s innovative guitar compositions inspired Biet's ethereal and haunting vocals, resulting in an intricate, distinct sound.

Lyrics:

The other night while you were struck awake Walking round while I was fast asleep And you walked out on the street and started to say That you were scared that you would need me and Id gone away We will all have bad dreams We will all have these And dreams are forever So no need to cry Yeah well dream forever Even if we wake up on time Sleepwalk my darling And Ill come into your dreams Sleepwalk my darling And ill tell you what you mean to me The other night while you were struck awake Walking round while I was fast asleep And you walked out on the street and started to pray You had too many feelings you could not take We will all have bad dreams We will all have these

Lyrics:

Kiss me into heaven Wear me on your belt Pretend they saved us seats at the banquet Hold off on the meanings What they dont know yet wont hurt them Forget all the diamonds And the lies we spin to lose Break all the ceilings Give up your regrets But you will feel naked When you get undressed It makes you holy Oh in the disco In the darkest of the dawn Im bleeding from both sides of my heart without you Kiss me into heaven Wear me on a cross You dont need a seat to go dancing Hold off on your feelings What they dont see yet Theyll never know Forget all the rubys and the rooms with able fires Cancel all the checks, all that you regret And you will seem unhappy But what they dont see yet will make you holy

Seems like this life, aint good enough for us Seems like this life has left us in the dust Ive been a dog beggin for scraps Seems like this life just aint good enough Ive been asking you to stay In every single way I can I dont wanna live If I gotta live without you I dont wanna die If I still have a chance Well, I cant live at all Its just something I never learned how to do So I cant live or die, either way I met you young and fell in love fast I met you when we were living dust to dust Wed go anywhere just to get a taste Until all our love fell away from us
