about

Antics Miami, Florida

"... Their big, beautiful and loud indie rock is heavily informed by post-rock, making them feel like a really good instrumental band with occasional vocals. Between astral lullabies, surging storms of beauty and even some impressive technicality (dueling guitar finger-tapping!), Antics is the one legit newcomer I encountered... "

Track Name: Shapeshifter
A lifetime left to waste on
a false pretense
My mind's a cave
Won't you come in?
Your heart of gold
Against mine of paper weights
When love is such
A strange mistake to make

All hope
Is lost
To anyone
And everyone
All hope
Is lost
To anyone

It's clear dear
I haven't been around
It's clear dear
I haven't been around
It's clear dear
I haven't been around
It's clear dear
I haven't been around

A lifetime less to wait
For a second chance
The water's too cold
I can't go in
But sure as hell
I've sure got hell to pay
And with the devil behind
I'll make my own way

It's clear dear
I haven't been around
It's clear dear
I haven't been around
It's clear dear
I haven't been around
It's clear dear
I haven't been around

So speak in tongues
While I'm still around
Speak in tongues
While I'm still around
This time I've changed
So act surprised
It's clear, dear
I haven't been around
So speak in tongues
Before I hit the ground

All hope
Is lost
To anyone
And everyone
All hope
Is lost
To anyone
And everyone
To anyone
And everyone

I know
For anyone and everyone
I know
For anyone and everyone
I know
Track Name: Frio (B-Side)
I let go of reason and did myself in
I tested the waters I knew not to swim
To me it's forbidden but you say I can
I lose myself quickly you don't understand
That the ground
Beneath me was breaking
To that sound
You started making

Soon enough
I'll make
Sure you know
I fell from the heavens
As fast as I hit the floor
I just hope
You'll see me the way you did
Before

I let go of reason and did myself in
I tested the waters I knew not to swim
To me it's forbidden but you say I can
I lose myself quickly you don't understand
That the thoughts
I once disregarded
Are now roads
No longer uncharted

Soon enough
I'll make
Sure you know
I fell from the heavens
As fast as I hit the floor
I just hope
You'll see me the way you did

I've decided
That I can't
Go on
Without you
Without you
Without you
