about

Space Heat’s dreamy take on indie (night)pop is filled with way-old honey, and smoke, and things you forgot you forgot, until you remembered them. Feelings not all that then, and not all that now…

This is not what you listen to sprawled out on the beach, bathed in sun and salt. This is what you listen to driving past the endlessly black shape of the ocean in the night, down some nameless freeway toward something new. What you listen to to keep warm.

Track Name: Porn
Aching towards bliss, I thought I could do this by myself.
Always wanting something else.
Let this die slowly, and gave up the ghost to stay the same.
To found some new world in my name.

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la..

Empty of what I thought I could know were I alone.
Carved out some new god to see home through this cold, but I saw none.

Aching to forget a lifetime of being the lesser man;
to unearth some new me in wet sand.
Crutched out and fading. Everything in boxes or steam, but every day you’re not a dream.

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la..

Inching toward truth I may never know, staying so alone.
Carved out some new rock to see home from in this hole, and I saw you.

Fell into a love like death, for which I was unprepared.
But truth is just not happenstance especially if you’re scared.
There’s a hole in every fence, in everything you make.
Fell into a love like death and just didn’t know the stakes.
Fell into a love like death.
Track Name: Starsign
Stone me, this love is so boring.
I buy you tampons and I can hear you snoring.
Memory, hold me, when this love was much more than
Some burnt projection stuffed into a spray can.

And I know why you’re going,
And I don’t blame you for it,
And I know why you’re frozen
Life with ghosts can get lonely.

Stone me, new love is so foreign.
I don’t know her star sign, but I can hear her snoring.
Memory, hold me, curled up in some corner
Cause no bullshit rebirth can wash away old words.

And I know where I’m going,
And that’s not why you’re not here,
And I know why I’m frozen.
Wasn’t you I woke to this morning.

I wanna know stone, I wanna stone, I wanna stone
That can’t be moved.
I wanna know stone, I wanna know stone, I wanna know stone
That wont be moved.
Track Name: Place Inside
All my lightswitch warmth, scared to be honest in love.
Manufactured distance, too black cloud to listen,
left it up to you to pull us through.

I’ll shower you with lies forever if you’d like to waste some time.
Or I’ll tear off my disguise forever if you’d like a place inside.

Endless back and forth, but I never wanted to go.
Envied abstract feelings, greener grass of free men,
See it now, I’d rather be your home.

I’ll shower you with lies forever if you’d like to waste some time.
Or I’ll tear off my disguise forever if you’d like a place inside.

For you…
