Right Joan 02:45
I thought you'd lead me lightly under the moon I learned to touch the wave but it left too soon The felt strapped to your leg in mid afternoon I turned to feel the breeze but it left too soon Balloons with empathy choked up in my room Boring darkness shifts, compelled to assume Love your photographs, forget to consume Create a lake with puddles of your perfume Lifelike with eyes too bright The steps all warped from snow remind me to sink The balcony all battered, soaked in black ink The gravity impacts me more than you think I like the feeling when we flutter in synch Roses hide your face and your rosy cheeks Smoked the last of them but can't hide critique Take your picture and I'll try not to blink Poor recollection, now I'll try not to speak
2.
Wrapped with care Because I'm across the ocean Poke holes for air Reach up for the sun Cut your hair It falls and makes you cry I don't feel so good Because we cheated just one more time The morning breaks Felt no vibration I feel this way Oscillating I'm fit to break But now we're kissing If it's okay Let's get permission
3.
You got some stupid look stuck on your face Why waste your time with me anyway If it's so easy, then tell me what you want to say Waited till now, what's just another day? I'm talking about foolish young love I'm talking about foolish young blood Drove all the way out here just to hear my voice Said on the phone you can't hear above the noise I'll sing you songs that might help you to understand Our time together must someday come to an end I'm talking about foolish young love I'm talking about foolish young blood
4.
What do I know? I know a few things For now For when your eyes are the ceiling Four arms never looked more appealing For when those moments are fleeting For then when we start overheating Let my hair grow Let my eyes show Let my mind go Make my chest glow
5.
Read the constellations, baby Tell me what you see Threw our darts in the darkest corner Waited for the rebound Haven't had a drink since summer Something's wrong with me I'm sipping on galactic forces Have been for near a century I tied down what you kicked up For so long ­I've had enough Falling out but keep in touch Shouldn't ask for better, honey Didn't think I could Spent my days lying on your shoulder Come the day you swore that never would Hold on tight - let's take it slow Baby, well don't you know You and I will be the last to go

Little Paw 03:38
Cry baby, you piss stain on the floor Nobody likes to talk to you about things anymore Couldn't play nice Maybe next time you'll think twice What do you gain? Driving me insane Bite at the hand That gave you a chance Lonesome weekends Stretch out into months then You come crawling Back for just a peek and Placing your chin up on my knee Putting an end to your misery What do you gain? Driving me insane Bite at the hand That gave you a chance Stumbling through darkness Over all those little folks you gone and killed When will the thirst end? The time when you have finally get your fill? Leave it down to rest You've aced this god-forsaken test
7.
A ring of flowers sits Unused and hid away I sit with mint on my face Feel my limbs drift away The strings on my shoulders Reach my window panes The tape on my fingers Is starting to stick And when I try I see gray scale stones The garden grows And I press for more I'm so confused With my toes on the floor
8.
When you come And when you go When you come around And I'll say no Watch you go Lock the door I don't think I'll see you anymore When you disappear I feel better No, I'm better And I won't let you You say you'll feel better come the sunrise I say I don't want to see the sunrise You say I don't recognize your problems I say that you might be the problem I'll be laughing through your sad town You'll be chasing this whole world down to the ground You missed your chance, now Watch me go farther than the sunrise When you turn around I feel better come the sunrise When you leave town I feel happy to see the sunrise

Slow, atmospheric music is not at the peak of its fame right now. It’s true that we can enjoy prestigious bands like LOW and BEACH HOUSE, and that when we hear some of the few groups that populate these fields we can get excited. But now is not the time for contemplation. That’s why we love that GALAXY FINGERS are reaffirming themselves in the parameters of their debut Single, “Let In Elijah EP”, and that with Elefant Records they are putting out, “The Last Bastion Of Fox Quality”, a 10” that will be released in digital format as well as a 300-copy numbered-limited-edition black vinyl.

Once again with recording assistance from Brand Lee (THE ALBUM LEAF) and the incorporation in mixing of Jerik Centeno, GALAXY FINGERS have made an album that magnifies their style and makes them worthy heirs of a lineage with very little presence on the face of the earth, but that has a distinguished history. “Right Joan” reminds us of Victoria Legrand’s band, thanks to the presence of the synthesizers and melancholy, hypnotic ambiance. “Funeral At Cosmo Square” are the early LOW from “The Curtain Hits The Cast”, the most delicate L’ALTRA, the most luminous THE LOW LOWS. Crystalline delicacy, held breath, absolutely mesmerizing vocal play and radical dynamics. “Cynically Sweet” could be RADAR BROS bewitched by Hope Sandoval, singing about the sweet heartache of first love, with those repetitive and hypnotic canons. “Edith Six Arms” and “Ring Of Flowers” move toward other greats of the style, BEDHEAD, or what is almost the same thing, THE NEW YEAR: millimetric synchronization, solidness, abrupt silences, and to top it off, a stratospheric chorus.

Because this is where GALAXY FINGERS stand out. The duo, formed by Alex Simonian and Clara Moore make the sun shine with their vocal play and their evanescent melodies. Unlike the majority of their compatriots from this sonic territory, where others create beauty from melancholy and sadness, they create it from hope. Like on “Asking For Space”, where they remind us again of BEACH HOUSE. Or like on “Little Paw” where they emulate the space travel of SPIRITUALIZED to the beat of soul and gospel. And to close and as the exception, the miniature acoustic that is “Clap For Them”, that we already heard on their first Single, where the levels of beauty are still sky high.

Without a doubt, this is the album that definitively puts GALAXY FINGERS on the map of these (few) bands capable of floating over arid, silent terrain, creating and transforming it into the most beautiful landscape. This is something that few are able to achieve and that has turned them into heroes for fans of the slowcore sound. Even if you’re not, let yourself get carried away by the subtle, unexpected, extreme beauty. You won’t regret it.
