slenderbodies

4 albums

Slenderbodies writes songs for you to experience like a blanket or a warm breeze of equatorial air. The California based duo met while attending University together, and came together as a creative force 3 years later. The two wrote, recorded and produced their debut album "sotto voce" over the span of a month and 380 miles. The result was an emotionally impactful, sonically soft collection of songs, with intricate airy guitar work complemented by gentle vocals and present drums. With vivid imagery at at the forefront of vocal waves, the duo paints portraits of siren songs, sultry nights with foreign lovers, lost romance and home. Almost a year following, they have returned with fabulist, the surreal story of two entwined souls, drawn out to sea together.

king (Sync Rep Only) soraya

Lyrics:

Paranoid You got me figured out Paranoid Come down it’s much too loud Paranoid Too long we lived with doubt I’ve never run Til right now You know that I’m hiding Can’t belong Shadows that I’m fighting Make me strong This throne in my mind is Keeping me going Farther than the reach of time So she said “Baby it’s all in your  head, it’s in your mind I guess ” This baroness She always seems to know  Best, I bet she’s my common sense paranoid  You’ll all see when i’m down Paranoid Among a troubled crowd Polaroid Your pictures fading Too quickly now With the sound You know that I’m hiding  Can’t be long Her warm touch invites me Makes me strong The morning in my mind is Keeping me going Farther than the reach of time

queen (Sync Rep Only) soraya

Lyrics:

Want to believe that I got nothing for you at all At all Yet the way you see me you -treat me like the king that i am King that i am ? Ill be in the corner drawing pictures of myself Trying to be somebody else Making something for myself now Ill be in the corner till you show me all my wealth Til you show me all my wealth Ill believe it til the end now ? Got something to love about you, i Got something to love about you ? Told myself  Holding my images Time to forget it Born again, and i ? Wonder if i rise too slow ill fall sleep Waiting on my own until you talk to me

Lyrics:

Down below My thoughts can wander and I let go I don't need much in my life I know I like it better underwater I've been drowning in anemone Here you'll never get the best of me I've been drowning in anemone Breathing deep Breathing deep Down below sandy like the ocean floor Quiet like I like it here I'll never be alone I pause my life, I spend my time It's always right, it's never wrong to try It's been alright, I've been alright But here it's better, I hear better I like it better underwater Send me underwater Feeling little pulls Won't get the best of me so La la la let's go A little destiny To tell you what you know A fatal recipe of life Dreaming ‘bout a place Where I can be by myself Feeling little pulls Won't get the best of me so La la la let's go A little destiny To tell you what you know A fatal recipe of life Dreaming ‘bout a place where I can be by myself Dreaming ‘bout a place where I can be by myself

i feel dangerous to be honest I'm trying to conceal it but I've been dangerous for a while though we don't need reality hear me speak stop to think you might have missed an echo if you want to play for keeps start off easy i want to make sure that you slowdown with your love slow down with your love you think you think you think you got it now i think i think i think I'm falling out we sink we sink we drag each-other down I found a way for us We need a bit of luck When were together love We are so dangerous

Lyrics:

Lens flare aching as it covers our eyes Been so late I've been a cannibal I carry along I carry along Glossed over all the fine lines Cold crisp cream inside a silky spine I've been carried along I've been carried along Loose leaves spill over my sanity Wilted winds will me Loose leaves spill over my sanity Wilted winds will me I've been seeing in blue I've been feeling in blue When I'm with you I've been sinning in blue I've been blooming into muted motion Opal ocean north shore floats in Opal ocean slowly flows in Loose leaves spill over my sanity Wilted winds will me Loose leaves spill over my sanity Wilted winds will me I've been seeing in blue I've been feeling in blue When I'm with you I've been sinning in blue I've been blooming into muted motion

You were my one love In that place where blacktails roam You were my one love Away from home Lay with me Be it briefly Come close, I’m coming clean Pupils sway  In bauble blues Do you feel as I do Lamenting light Once in your eyes September’s sunsets Cascade the night A Pink hue surrounds you i dont know why you dont take your time to think twice a pink hue surrounds you  makes me wanna feel alive? ill take you places where you wanna go ill take your pain and make your body whole its such a shame the way you treat your bones i see your glow i see your afterglow

So hung up Got sun sitting in my blood I wanna leave To dip my feet I spent some time To search for a place to hide I saw your face from underneath Drip away My vision flawless As i await your full reveal I am captivated You reel me in Steps from shame I wanna see your whole body sway I step inside as you call my name You let me in ~~ Falling through the symphonies I just wanna hear your voice Hidden inbetween theirs Melt into cacophony Ringing in my ears is yours Swimming through the white noise ~~ Gasp of air A grasp of something is all i need Maybe you Could be the one that will deceive me Sing your songs Enchant my senses with your stories Make me feel like i will never be left lonely Drip away My vision flawless As i await your full reveal I am captivated You reel me in Steps from shame I wanna see your whole body sway I step inside as you call my name You let me in ~~ Falling through the symphonies I just wanna hear your voice Hidden inbetween theirs Melt into cacophony Ringing in my ears is yours Swimming through the white noise

Lyrics:

You said that you were one of us Sitting around the wild fire Sinning around with her wild side She said that you were one of us One of the kids from back in the day When the world was more lonely Chorus Be cool to her Don’t act like a fool because You’re one of us One of us (x2) Don’t try to offer her the silly things You do on a day to day Basis because You’re one of us One of us (x) One of us, one of us, one of us Verse You said you’ll never run from us Told us that you’re ours til you’re dead and gone But you’re running from us now And chasing after her won’t get her heart to trust you again Since you became the one who tore her heart apart as a friend You won’t be one of us, one of us, one of us
