about

FM synthesis, 80s sheen, sharp guitars crashing in at key moments, the misplaced hope of first dates, the ridiculous optimism of infatuation, the tension of new romance. A left-field indie-almost-dance track, this is Afternoon Authors fourth single.

lyrics

As I sit here tongue-tied
I can’t wait until we're drunk tonight

As I sit here tongue-tied
I can’t wait 'til we're drunk tonight

My suit's slim, grey Italian wool
Our legs twitch at the same tempo

I’m slowly drawn to your inverse pole
You are a mirror and a window

Theater of the absurd
Momentary awkward
Your leg against my Oxfords
Plus and minus signs

Come on love let us run off tonight
We’ll go so fast that we’re bound to take flight
Like a bird
A bird of prey

Come on love let us run off tonight
Run until we’re just colors of light
Like a May
A May parade

Come on love let us run off tonight
We’ll go so fast that we’re bound to take flight
Like a bird
A bird of prey

Come on love let us run off tonight
Run until we’re just colors of light
Like a May
A May parade

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!
