about

Hyacinth Durham, North Carolina

After the split of his college band and a relocation to Durham, NC in late 2015, Hyacinth began as a handful of Garageband demos in Jake Martin's computer. Fragments of songs, born of a frantic search for direction, quickly grew into a new musical identity. Combining a love of loud, acrobatic guitars and fascination with synths and drum machines, Hyacinth's 'EP' (out 10/15) is just the beginning. ... more

Track Name: A Little Too Bright
I... I think I’ve done a really awful thing
I’m... not really too sure why
I... don’t want to talk about it anymore
I just want to get on with my life

I... I think I’ve found a way of living that
I... I really can’t sustain
I... don’t want to hear about it anymore
I just want to live up to my shame

Oh, the sun has always been a little too bright
For people like me, but I’m not fit for the night
Because I manage to...

Circumvent the best of intentions
Can’t find spokes for all of my wrenches
If you dare to step on the dance floor
I will stomp your toes

I... I saw you staring out the window and
I... Just couldn’t hold my tongue
I... Just want to give you something better than
Whatever you are feeling right now

I... Would show a little hesitation if
You... Weren’t making it so clear
We... Should probly know a little better, but
We always knew we’d end up right here

Oh, the sun has always been a little too bright
For people like me, but I’m not fit for the night
Because I manage to...

Circumvent the best of intentions
Can’t find spokes for all of my wrenches
If you dare to step on the dance floor
I will stomp your toes

I can see this coming back to me
But I can see my chance slipping away
And if I let it go again
It’s one less reason to pretend
That I have any kind of clue
What I am doing here

Oh, the sun has always been a little too bright
For people like me, but I’m not fit for the night
Because I manage to...

Circumvent the best of intentions
Can’t find spokes for all of my wrenches
If you dare to step on the dance floor
I will stomp your toes
Track Name: Find Our Way to the Floor
Don’t look down, she said
When down was all I saw
Taught me to forget
When all I did was fall

I don’t know if I could ever face myself
Without you by my side
It seems like everyone is burning up alive
But still we find our way

To the floor, lock the door
Feel the whole world washing over
Close your eyes, look inside
Feel your pain dissolve in me forevermore
All I know is nobody makes me feel like you do
Nobody makes me feel like you

Saw me spiraling
And spun me back around
Even when I tried
I couldn’t shut you out

I don’t know if I could ever face myself
Without you by my side
It seems like everyone is burning up alive
But still we find our way

To the floor, lock the door
Feel the whole world washing over
Close your eyes, look inside
Feel your pain dissolving me forevermore
All I know is nobody makes me feel like you do
Nobody makes me feel like you

And I don’t know if I could ever face myself
Without you by my side
It seems like they would rather burn us both alive
Than let us find our way

To the floor, lock the door
Feel the whole world washing over
Close your eyes, look inside
Feel your pain dissolve in me forevermore
All I know is nobody makes me feel like you do
Nobody makes me feel like you
Track Name: Only This Once
Someone in the doorway is calling my name
(Let it go, let it slide- Let it go, let it die)
I cannot ignore it, cannot look away
(Let it go, let it slide- Let it go, let it die)

Only for this once I’ll follow
And I will not control tomorrow
Out into the empty hollow
Where nothing will be the same as today

Something in the distance is crying out loud
(Shut it out, lock it down- Shut it out, lie back down)
I can hear it echo from somewhere in the clouds
(Shut it out, lock it down- Shut it out, lie back down)

I’m letting it under my skin
For the first time (first time)
I’m letting it under my skin
For the first time (first time)
I’m letting it under my skin
For the first time (first time)
I’m letting it under my skin
For the first time (first time)

Only for this once I’ll follow
And I will not control tomorrow
Out into the empty hollow
Where nothing will be the same as today
