Bad Veins – Go Home

I’m having trouble trying to get my mind to bend around you. But I don’t feel that I have a lot of time to spend searching for clues. Just tell me all your secrets or go home…”

The strangest thing has been happening to me as of late… You know how when you hear a song you usually identify with the victim or can relate to the singers struggle somehow? Well, these days I’m finding myself on the other end of the song. I relate more to the so-called wrong doer then the victim, I say so-called because so much of love and relationships is selfish in nature that right and wrong can many times be completely relative.

So what’s that make you, good?! You not good, you just know how to hide, and lie.
Me I don’t have that problem… Me?! I always tell the truth, even when I lie…” – Tony Montana (Scarface)

I like this song because it touches on an ideal I die for when it comes to relationships, not wasting anyones time. Right now, I can’t open up to a girl with all my secrets so I make that clear because if that’s what she wants then she should be with someone that will. I personally have so much I’m going to accomplish that it makes me take the concept of time very serious and I feel like if someone led me on they would be stealing the most precious thing I have so I don’t steal and…

That’s why I, I never been robbed in my life.” – Jay-Z (1-900-Hustler, 2000)

Anyways, Bad Veins are on tour now with We Were Promised Jetpacks, here’s some official info…

Bad Veins – Go Home

Scottish indie rock band We Were Promised Jetpacks started gaining recognition when touring with label mates Frightened Rabbit in late 2008 and then debuting their album These Four Walls in June 2009.  Sounding a lot like Frightened Rabbit with emotionally explosive lyrics and music, WWPJ immediately strikes a chord, especially with the songs “It’s Thunder And It’s Lightening” and “Quiet Little Voices.”

Bad Veins, will hit the road with WWJP tomorrow, to complete an impressive line-up, debuting at Bowery Ballroom in New York City and another New York show at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory on Monday, February 15th.  The Cincinnati-based, indie pop duo, comprised of Benjamin Davis (vocals, guitar, keys), Sebastien Schultz (drums) and a 1973 reel-to-reel named Irene, debuted their first full-length and self-titled album to critical acclaim in July 2009, garnering spaces on last year’s “Best of…” lists, including ABC News Amplified’s “Top 10 Albums of 2009” and USA Today’s Pop Candy “Top 20 Songs of 2009.”  Stand out songs are “Go Home,” “The Lie” and “Found.”
