Over the past school year I got into a band from San Diego. While I wasn’t impressed with the lead vocalist voice I soon began to appreciate its uniqueness. I would doodle the lyrics on my folder and on the margins of my class notes. Pierce the Veil was now on repeat and I couldn’t help but fall hard, and when I fall I have to delve into the band even more. I remember skipping over the brief article about them in Alternative Press and realizing that it was a band full of Mexicans. Now you don’t see this very often in the rock scene unless you count the local scene of my home sweet southern Texas, the setting of my beginning and hopefully not my end. I began to appreciate that one fact about this band. These are my “gente” for goodness sake. So as I delved into the band I found out that the bassist, Jaime Preciado, had a side project. After listening to some of the stuff on his MySpace, I got addicted to the easy listening.
At the time, I was also jamming the mellow sounds of He Is We and the stripped sound of his music was very alluring to my ears. What can I say I’m a sucker for just guitar and vocals. The simpler the better. Right? Anyways, I loved the songs but since I could not find any of his music to carry around all the time I didn’t listen much to it.
It wasn’t until a week ago when someone directed me to a place where I could download some of his songs. While it was only three songs I have had a case of tunnel vision and have listened to those 3 songs on since then. I’ve felt mellow and thus been jamming to low-key, stripped down music because I’ve just been home and chilling before I start my third year upstate.
I find it difficult to sleep when all the walls they just seem to speak to me, and its kind of funny that I laugh because my hearts so fucked up.
I can barely stand the sights and sounds of the cars outside, the red and greens on the traffic lights. The only thing i got is this, the only thing i want is this…
Memories that make me smile, a girl to stand there so she can admire the way I can never ever really keep my hands to myself. but the alcohol it taste so sweet, when its mixed with lies and defeat of all the battles I lost and lost again.
I just love this verse…er verses? Not sure. Either or, all that matters is how one can relate
I absolutely love the intro to Believe You Me, reminds me of a Hawaiian tune. The lyrics are pretty too. Poetry set to music is kind of my thing. I always find the beauty of a song by what it is saying.
If you listen closely at the end you can hear an Allie and Noah’s dialogue from The Notebook. I find that endearing.
the fact I can’t explain the one thing I need to sayso I’ll keep it here with me, so I can..so I can try…try to be more obvious, and lie and tell me I’m right again.Jaime Preciado <3
