Their follow up to last year's Cowgirl Blues has been receiving some good praise and we're super excited to share it . The EP showcases the band's impressive songwriting and compositional abilities as well as their enduring concern with the traditions and norms of love and adulthood.
"On opener 'Lighthouse,' Pyle reckons with warring thoughts: wanting to brave enough to swim into life's uncharted deep end, but feeling tied down by the anchor of fear and anxiety" (Noisey).
"On the album's namesake track, Pyle shows off some seriously impressive vocal range and lyrical prowess. She starts off pleading, “I feel it slipping away/ I am desperate to make it okay” before the song grows triumphant, and the listener seems to reach a similar epiphany as she comes to terms with the harsh reality of it all" (Stereogum).
You can now stream the EP online on Spotify and Apple Music, and order a CD or cassette in the store. Be sure to preorder the vinyl, which will be arriving soon in translucent orange and lavender with an etched B-side!

Punk infused alt-country band from Sacramento, CA. Said arguably listens to too much Pavement. Touches the soft spots of Modest Mouse and the Weakerthans. Story telling and imagery galore. A requiem for a missing friend. “her i’s and j’s are missing dots, and i am missing her.”
