about

Dear Darkness Detroit, Michigan

Stacey MacLeod and Samantha Linn.

Dear Darkness are a post-punk duo whose sound is waxing and combustible—the rawer side of PJ Harvey mixed with the rock economy of The Ramones, the drama of Siouxie Sioux mixed with the faux-pomposity of Pulp. Dear Darkness’s music could be called “bedroom pop,” but if then, the curtains are drawn and the lamps are covered. ... more

Track Name: A Few Nice Shots
Hey. little girl, why you so sad?
Sittin' on the curb
Tell me, why you so mad?
Let me see your big brown eyes.
I'd like to take your picture sometime.
Smile. Say Cheese. Smile. Alright.

Here's my card.
The number is mine.
You can call me up.
It won't take anytime.
We can take a few nice shots.
It doesn't matter if you want to or not.
Smile. Say Cheese. Smile. Alright.

Baby, won't you smile?
Baby, won't you try?
Baby, won't you smile?
Come on, honey pie!

Smile. Say Cheese. Smile. Alright.
Track Name: 100 Yard Dash
Met him at a book store.
He said, "Man, you gotta hear my band."
I got closer.
I smelled his skin.
We went to his place.
I touched his face. Oh yeah.
We laid down on the dirty ground. Oh yeah. Oh yeah.

And then he said it again in my ear.
"Touch me there. Listen to this guitar part here."

What a great way to make a friend! What a great day!"
Track Name: Let's Blow Up The Moon
Let's blow up the moon!
Let's blow up the moon!

It scorned my advances.
It's makin' me bad at math.
It's makin' me want to love.
It's makin' me want to die.

Let's blow up the moon!
Let's blow up the moon!

We can meet in a field.
We can sit on the hood.
It's makin' me want to cry.
It's makin' me want to fuck.

Let's blow up the moon!
Let's blow up the moon!

I bet you it's made of glass.
It's pulling on my teeth.
It's makin' me want to drink.
It's makin' me want to run.

Oh baby, can you save me from what I'm gonna do? I'm exulted. I'm in trouble. Here's what I'm gonna do. I'm going to take you. I'm going to make you want to blow up the moon.
Track Name: Birthday Party
I'm lyin' on the ground in the garage.
There's a disco ball turning, turning.
It's my birthday. It's my birthday.
Ya came to my party but ya didn't stay.

All my guests left. Now I'm all alone.
I drink champagne and it's burning, burning.
It's my birthday. It's my birthday.
Ya came to my party but ya didn't stay.

Oh, don't ya know, I'm the special birthday girl.
I tied one on for my broken heart.
It's my birthday. It's my birthday.

I had a party and you went away.
You came to my party, but you didn't stay.
You came to my party, but you went away.
Track Name: End Track
Why couldn't it happen for once?
I honk the horn.
This looks like the place.

Why couldn't it happen for once?
I drink in the car 'cause nothin' is easy.
Why couldn't it happen for once?
I like the things you say and the way you say them.

Why couldn't it happen for once?
I roll down the window and I call your name

I took the car downtown and I tried to find you.
I knew you were walking around thinkin' about me.
But when I finally found you, you were holding her hand.
You forgot about me.

I should have left you alone.
Instead I tried to call you on the phone.
It would have been a nice surprise if you were into me.

Why couldn't it happen for once?
