lyrics

Time up here is touch and go.
Fireflies my only glow.
Pen and paper on my knees,
this is no apology.

The taste of dirt and sound of waves
crashing through my brain.
This respite, I only know
when I feel this arbor grow

like the jasmine butterfly
sits beneath the sun.

Woke up under the same sky,
broken bottle by my side.
Further up a line of lights
clip the wings off of my flight

Knowing that they will succeed,
I approach my enemy.
Pen to paper, heart in hand,
now my legs--they try to stand

like the jasmine butterfly
sits beneath the sun.

Redelivered to uncertainty
when this urgent letter betrays me.

Like the jasmine butterfly
sits beneath the sun,

redelivered to uncertainty
when this urgent letter betrays me.

about

Aloud Los Angeles, California

Aloud is, in the parlance of our times, a rock n’ roll band. Since our founding in Boston in the early 2000s we’ve released 5 albums, toured coast-to-coast several times, and even landed music in a few films. We’ve called L.A. home since 2017.

Aloud is currently putting a neat little bow on Apollo 6—their follow-up album to Sprezzatura which, if you believe what the papers tell you, is very good.
