'Figure It Out' traces the contours of a relationship in which one person watches the seemingly irreconcilable demise of the other. There is a sense of anxiety when faced with the ephemeral nature of things–that the romance of youth, with all its delights and captivations, ultimately fades.

'Figure It Out' was recorded with Burke Reid (The Drones, Courtney Barnett) at The Grove Studios. Set against the backdrop of Mangrove Mountain, the band spent three days recording their EP, a set of songs permeated by the feeling of the twilight descending over the bush.


Burning the candle at both the ends
I just want you to feel special all the time
The future me can figure it out

You're not getting any younger,
So why are you wasting

Every moment the lights go down
I get the feeling that I stop breathing
I just want to do something with my hands
She gave me a kiss and a cigarette
I get the feeling that you hesitate
Why can’t we just figure it all out?

Can you hear the birds darling
Or is it just your fear calling you out?
All that I notice is your sweet indecision
All that I notice is you
