A perfect day, an endless sky It's easy to forget that we all die Reunite, and pick your vice We're living for tonight to feel alive Don't let this be the last time we get this high Don't let this be goodbye Our secret tells - our secrets sell A footnote in the story of this town We're on our way with no replay Raise your hand to wave before you drown Don't let this be the last time we get this high Don't let this be goodbye Don't let this be the last time we say goodnight Don't let this be goodbye

Here come the waves Hiccuped and phased Echo for days And days and days and days Wander, amazed Through the deserts that you made But a million dreams each night won't change your day They're not your savior Perfect, in tune Struggles, too soon Broken by noon And fading with the moon Slip your cocoon, But your wings don't leave the womb And a million dreams each night won't change your day They're not your savior
3.
Woke up to find That we're wasting our time The future fell short when we got there A long way to find that you're nowhere But I believed it all Woke up to find We're no longer aligned Remember the secrets you told me? Clever, the lies I'm unfolding And I believed in them all

Swallowed up By a shiny page That holds promises Of another age Hollowed out And fill the empty space With indulgences Of convenience and sublime taste These beautiful things are consuming me All these beautiful things are consuming me Robe regret Like Diderot We’re the slaves to new And the friends to faux You fall asleep Now I can dream About light from stars That you cannot, you cannot see These beautiful things are consuming me All these beautiful things are consuming me

about

"Guest Directors’ debut EP 'These Beautiful Things' is jam-packed with ear-caressing reverb-soaked soundscapes, toned-down and mood-setting vocals, and really sharp songwriting all throughout its four tracks." - Northwest Music Scene

Guest Directors started as a casual side project between members of current Seattle bands The Navins, Mutiny Mutiny and These People Here. As collaborations turned into songs, long-time guitarists stepped up to singing roles and a sound started developing. Elements of post-shoegaze rock, dream pop, power pop and noise all make an appearance, but the songs don’t fit easily in a specific genre.

Sounds like: raindrops beating up evergreens.
For fans of: spooky soulful music, guitar interplay, female vocals, effects pedals, fireflies, alien blips and elliptical distortion fog.
