Montauk 04:22
Counting all the reasons like the stars in the sky It's easier to give up than actually try And when I look at you, I feel angry inside. At myself. Because I just can't seem to love anyone else. The beautifully damned, hopeless romantic Breaking apart the good things in your own head. Beautifully damned, hopeless romantic Breaking apart the things I said But when I said "It's not you, it's me" You don't know how much I meant it But I'll know it when it's right When they give me a reason to come around If you'll just give me some time I'll come around

"You are playing with fire", they said Put your guard down. Don't wait. Take one step back and then lean in Calling collect and asking for a helping hand Because I've been here before And I'm not getting nowhere alone I'm not getting nowhere alone "Put the medicine down", they said Kicking yourself out of your own head These thoughts are killing me But I'll find a way out. I'll find a way out. Because I've been here before And I'm not getting nowhere alone I've been here before And I'm not getting nowhere alone

Disappearing 05:25
Watch me as I disappear into white lines Where no one can tell me how to feel It's interesting to them when you're hurting Everyone waiting on your discernment And they'll do it to you And they'll do it to you too Watch me as I disappear. This is what it takes, they say. To be someone in this city. It's interesting to them when you're hurting Everyone counting on your discernment And they'll do it to you And they'll do it to you too

Lakes 04:26
Carrying pails of water out of this city Sitting in an old house where the floors are creaking Get time on my side and maybe I'll win it While they all walk by, oh they look so pretty Hear the sound come creeping in I can feel it crawling down my skin again Always thought my lover would have blue eyes Kick back a few beers with some friends that I've needed In an old gold field where the lakes are streaming And they all walk by, god damn are they pretty As we carry these pails out of this old city Hear the sound come creeping in I can feel it crawling down my skin again Always thought my lover would have blue eyes Don't go knocking on strangers doors I won't go counting on a stranger

I've been gambling with my own mind Losing time after time The intentions never were wrong But I can seem to make it work out So here we go again trying to pretend That we see eye to eye And can we just be honest now There's no sense in faking how We don't see eye to eye anymore There's a brief confrontation With the way I explain myself But while looking at our reflection Of the way this won't be working out So here we go again trying to pretend That we see eye to eye And can we just be honest now There's no sense in faking how We don't see eye to eye anymore

Rumors 04:42
Packing up old picture frames, as I tear these things down. I'll make sure to map out the ways from this old fucking town. While I cannot recognize myself, I don't see myself in any of the things I have. And I've built this home with my bare hands. I've been working and sweating, the tears, blood, and all that I am. My whole life and these years I can't get back. No I can't get back. And they're gone now... I said I just need some space to get my head straight. I just need some space to get my head on straight. They start talking among themselves, spreading rumors about my health. Everybody's wondering "Where are you going, why are you leaving, how could you do this?" I don't know...no I don't know. Maybe I'm lying...okay I'm lying. I just need some space to get my head straight I just need some space to get my head on straight

Last Call 04:09
You said we could've been good No, it's too late And no one taught me how To relay what I'm feeling now It means nothing towards the only thing That I swore would save me Yes, I swore it... What are you doing here? And who is she to you? I think it's the last call And I've finally found my courage I've been sinking, Thinking of why this could be I'll keep painting images Those images of who I'll never be You said we could've been good No, it's too late I'll write a toast to all of your faithless ways And what I'm feeling now, there's no empathy You said we could've been good No, it's too late

Sister 01:58

So Close 04:30
I've written out these lines maybe twenty times Rehearsing to myself in a hallway, in my own hell And they ask me where I've been, like it's some secret Where could we go when everyone's watching So close We'll lie matches in the dark and I'll come rushing in after us. Then you'll become someone I used to know. I've been playing pretend like it's some secret Rehearsing to myself while everyone is watching So close We'll lie matches in the dark and I'll come rushing in after us. Then you'll become someone I used to know.

Lost 04:56
Captain, oh captain I'm lost at sea Was caught in a whirlwind, I found something My lips are locked, my eyes are open Captain, oh captain I've got no one I'm letting the cold air fill my lungs My hands are soft, my heart is broken I'm waiting on a miracle I'm waiting on a dream I'm waiting for a miracle That you might rescue me Captain, oh captain I'm lost at sea Was caught in a whirlwind of never-ending lies My lips are soft, my eyes are frozen I'm waiting on a miracle I'm waiting on a dream I'm waiting for a miracle That you might rescue me

Visitor 03:09
You were a small frame visitor Hailed from the east and a bit obscure I've been dying to meet you Asked me 1,000 questions about where I had gone and how it felt As we stirred our coffees cold Visitor you came at the right time, this I know That you've changed my life for good Visitor you came with another set of eyes And this, I did not mind Time slipped past for a week or three Learned all the names of the ones who'd leave As we laughed about our failures Visitor you came at the right time, this I know That you'd change my life for good Visitor you came with another set of eyes And this, I did not mind You were a small frame, visitor Hail from the east and a bit obscure I've been dying to meet you.

about

Digging deep between the realms of deconstruction and self-realization, Los Angeles-based band Twin Oaks (fronted by songwriter and vocalist Lauren Brown and producer/instrumentalist Aaron Domingo) put forth their sophomore release 'See You When I See You' with no limitations. Following the band's shoegaze-tinged 2017 'Collapse EP' and patient intimacy of 2018 'Living Rooms EP', Brown continues to present deeply personal observations on isolation, societal pressure, death, and failed expectations. The emotional depths are elevated (this time) by the band's ability to navigate between haunting soundscape, driven dynamics, and quiet contemplation. 'See You When I See You' is a process of diving into the most unsettling moments of life in order to find a better sense of self.

The writing spanned throughout the end of 2017 into 2018 and included the collaborations of drummer/percussionist Marilyn Beltran and bassist Aroldo Rios to bring the songs to full completion. Keeping to their DIY roots, Twin Oaks self-recorded and produced the album in October 2018 between Brass Plate Records and Domingo's home studio in Southern California.
