about

"The fact that Western Daughter are creating and producing orchestrations this intelligent proves their musical abilities and their impressive workmanship, the band are on the edge of releasing their astonishing and frankly stunning 7 track EP, which will win you over. This raucous indie-punk band fuse various elements yet create something they can call their own, with lo-fi attributes, compelling lyrics and addictive emo-esque vocals, gritty bass lines, angular riffs and a fierce tone..." - Circuit Sweet

"We highlight a lot of unique artists [...], but I can safely say that we’ve never come across an act quite like Western Daughter. Born amidst the foothills of Boise, Idaho, these intuitive up-and-comers readily blur the boundaries between a wealth of different genres, resulting in an exceptional sound that will surely appeal to even the broadest musical palettes." - Under The Gun Review

All songs written and performed by Western Daughter throughout the winter and summer of 2015. Recorded, mixed and mastered at Osmosis Studio in Meridian, ID by Nathan Barnes in the early fall of 2015.

Cassette coming winter 2016 courtesy of Broken Bark Records and Camp Daze.

Taylor Jay - Guitar
Cameron Brizzee - Guitar, acoustic guitar, vocals

Track Name: "At Least Nobody Got Hurt."
well I guess all those nights in my car
didn't really get us very far
only as far as the miles we drove
just so I could hold you

and I guess all those times that you called
didn't really mean much at all
only as much as the excitement you felt
only as much as the excitement I felt
just so I would want you

Now I know where to go
when I'm feeling alone
in my bed

and If you ever see me on the side of the road
I'll always give you a drag of my smoke
but It's getting so dark out
but it's gotten so cold out
I should probably go home
Track Name: "Except You."
Can I come home to you?
Is that something that you'd want to do?
or do you want something entirely new?

Can I come home to you?
is that something that you'd want to do?
or do you want something entirely new?
'cause I'd bury pits in the ground
fill 'em up with concrete
I wouldn't make a sound
I promise to be complete

I swear that I would be a dream
Track Name: My Room is a Mess
3am chainsmoking by my window
I got my door unlocked, I'm waiting for
you to call, call me up
take me out or take me down

so come inside
It's warm and we can get you high
you survived
looking for a home with your hands on your eyes

Christ alive!
what is ever really mine?
are you alive?
or are you half-dead all of the time?

come collide
why can't you stay dead tonight?
but I won't deny
that it makes me feel alright

but you never call
now my window's cold
I better lock my door
I better lock even more

come collide
why can't you stay dead tonight?
but I won't deny
that it makes me feel alright
Track Name: The Road is Laced with Something Dangerous
so this is that crushing weight that I've heard so much about
I've got to tear up all this pavement but it has to be well thought-out
hardened tar like a shell over my young eyes
slamming my face into the wall again tonight
trying to break the case
trying to escape and
the road is laced with something a lot more dangerous than I had imagined

tell me something good
show me something better
take me to the woods
then just drag me underwater

oh, oh
underwater
that's where I'll find her
oh

I might need yr help this time, you guys
'cause I can't seem to remember a single moment from my whole life
hardened tar like a shell over my young eyes
slamming my face into the wall again tonight
trying to break the case
trying to escape
and the road is laced with something a lot more dangerous than I had imagined

tell me something good
show me something better
take me to the woods
then just drag me underwater

consider this the intro to the book I'll never write;
consider this the intro to the book I start tonight;
I think to myself nobody will ever love you the way that I loved you
but I hope they do
I really, really do
Track Name: Downtown Again
Why can't you believe me sometimes?
why can't I believe me sometimes?

when I'm back in my home
and I'm feelin' so alone
I think I need a little rest
or maybe your hand up on my chest
yeah, I'd try that
yeah, I'd try that

Why can't you believe me sometimes?
Why can't I believe me sometimes?

when I'm downtown alone
or I'm back at my home
and I'm feelin' so stoned
then I'm back downtown again alone

I think I need a little rest
or maybe your hand up on my chest
oh, I'd try that
oh, I'd try that
yeah, I'd try thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat
Track Name: Graphic Novel
you were comin' up short
you were standin' in line
I was out on the street, man,
about half the time

we're passing out in the sun
and with the passing of time
I just can't care anymore
yeah, you were something divine

you took me back to my house
I was sloppy but fine
yeah, you put me down man,
and everything was alright

you were out all the time
here at the bottom of it
I just can't stand it

we're passing out in the sun
and with the passing of time
I just can't care anymore man
yeah, you were something divine

you took me back to my house
i was sloppy but fine
yeah, you took me down man,
and everything was alright

you were comin' up short
you were back in my mind
I was out all the time, man
but now you're in line

[something about the way it is tonight
something about all the filthy wires inside
something about the way it is with us all the time
something about the way it is with us all the time]

that's why I'm here
that's all I fear
Track Name: Don't Ever Leave
We were kids sitting on the bed,
In our parent's house, inside my head.
Now I'm standing on the sidewalk,
And that thing's not covered up in chalk.
That's when I got the call,
That's when it all fell apart.

Darling, [redacted]
Don't ever leave
Don't do that thing that makes my brother scream
Don't do this to my family

Now I'm staring at a phone,
watching as my father talks to God,
for the first time in such a long time.
Now I'm in a stranger's home
With my brother and his future wife.
Now I'm sitting on a hill,
Now I can finally feel everything.

Darling, [redacted]
Don't ever leave
Don't do that thing that makes my brother scream
Don't do this to my family

That's when it all went down
That's how I feel now
That's why all I know now
is...

Green little blades up on your house now
Pink little worms inside your house now
All that dirt inside your mouth now
And I'm the one who's cutting the blades back down
