about

Since its initial, limited release, Elvis Depressedly’s Holo Pleasures EP has been a sought after relic for old and new fans alike. Run For Cover will rerelease the EP Holo Pleasures / California Dreamin’ on all formats on June Third, love three years since the release of Holo Pleasures. Reissued and expanded, the release’s working title was “Holo Pleasures II,” but in reality, the California Dreamin’ EP works as a com- panion to Holo Pleasures rather than a sequel. Taken from the same sessions as Holo Pleasures, the formerly unreleased 6 song EP ventures into different territory while maintaining the same dreamlike dizziness and warmth of it’s partner EP. Airy synthesizers, distant drums and cooing vocoders provide an intricate and fascinating backbone to the groovy, trance-inducing songs that are seen by the band as a bridge between the fuzzy indie pop of Holo Pleasures and the more laid-back grooves of their 2015 LP, new alhambra. The double EP provides a unique experience to both long-time and first-time listeners of Elvis Depressedly that a standard reissue of older material wouldn’t achieve.

Track Name: Angel Cum Clean
angel cum clean you are not what you seem
i was taking xanax listening to morphine
i pulled over the car right before i went dark
i threw us up in the street

i know you know what i mean
i know you angel cum clean

angel cum clean you are know what you seem
i was taking xanax listening to codeine
as i was missing your call i set all my dreams my free
something's been wearing me down

i know you know what i mean
i know you angel cum clean
Track Name: Cop Poet
1, 2, 3, 4
(i have a prophecy for you)

cop poet
pig blood corporate day dream
delusions and murder fantasies
no one will suffer when you die
lives sentenced to eternities of light

oppression wept
begging for forgiveness
an angel carried you to your sentence
so many had to suffer just to die
lives sentenced to eternities of light

i prayed to leave my body
and become
an angel's guillotine
no one should suffer just to die
lives sentenced to eternities of light
Track Name: Holo Pleasures (California Dreamin')
broken, bitter pain
rotting to free a soul of rage
that tore into the sun
promising us a new age of love

this dream is going grey
but then again it's never too late
trust the mystery, you'll never solve everything

Jackie my true love
i would give you anything
but you don't a thing
to live through this dream
Track Name: Nakamura
rage blooms through you
and blossoms in the back of your mind
laughing like a riot
caving to the high

i don't want to be myself around anybody else

pain moves through you
and settles in the back of your mind
laughing like a riot
caving to the high

i don't want to be myself around anybody else
Track Name: Up In The Air
all of the feeling that kept me alive no longer lives here

now i feel nothing, something inside turned the lights out

i understand you, so i don't know why i can't break through

you understand me, so i don't know why you stay here

everything i knew
is up in the air
