about

A bobcat walks into a bar in Cottonwood, Arizona, in 2009 and leaves a trail of scratched faces and nipped ears. No good comes from sticking around for the storm. The bobcat burrows in your head; lives there; howls like the wind; cries like a saxophone; falls like rain. Here comes the flood; it dissolves everything.

Cottonwood is Afternoon Author's sixth song.

lyrics

(Here comes the flood)

Baby, you sink your teeth deep into my neck
I swear to god that I'm about to jet
Baby, you sink your teeth deep into my neck
I swear to god that I'm about to jet

The storm will blow us together
Until our spines are severed

Calm down, bobcat
The wind wreaks havoc

A bobcat walks into a bar and picks a fight
I doubt any of us will make it out alive
I doubt any of us will make it out alive

The storm will blow us together
Until our spines are severed

Do you smell that rain
Seeping through the cracks?
Dripping down the walls
Itching for a brawl

Do you smell that rain
Seeping through the cracks?
Dripping down the walls
Itching for a brawl

Do you smell that rain
Seeping through the cracks?
Dripping down the walls
Itching for a brawl

Do you smell that rain
Seeping through the cracks?
Dripping down the walls
Itching for a brawl

Do you smell that rain
Seeping through the cracks?
Dripping down the walls
Itching for a brawl

about

Afternoon Author Phoenix, Arizona

Afternoon Author is an indie-electro group from Phoenix, AZ. The sonic equivalent of taking Radiohead, Caribou, Baths, and SOHN and tangling them all up in your junk drawer, Afternoon Author straddles some crooked line between downtempo, synth-pop, synth-wave, and indie electronic music.

We have finished recording our debut album, set to release at the very. very beginning of 2021. Stay safe!
