Hometown 05:05
Even now I recall the days you came around, setting fire to the times ahead, We trashed the crowns of control. For everything that we said, misguided or profound, Now through the dust we can see the ruins of our hometown. And every club that got shut down was a part of us. The lines that echo on in our minds - are they more real now that they’re gone? Situations of certainty. Abandoned hooks and choruses. Dancing wasted and wanting more from our lives. Never thought we would see the end of this. Never thought I’d regret a thing. Never thought I would call in sick, But giving up really gets to you. Let’s make our peace.

For separate towns and mislaid books, we don’t talk the way we would and silent days are sometimes easier to bear. Though I don’t doubt we’d miss each other if we could, if some things hurt, if others felt good. If these days are days of growing wise, I hope I’m growing wise. I guess we always knew the promises we rushed to make, fabric clenched within your fist, they couldn’t last, no more than the flowers at the wake. For silver rain, we huddled in her parents’ yard and saw a pain I couldn’t qualify. If these days are days to settle down, I hope I’ll settle down, I guess we settled down, pale in the aftermath of loss, The looseness of the dreams where she returns. In vain, she speaks beyond the years. She’ll always be the first to have known. We swam the lake and saw her drown. And there’s no meaning to be found. The greyest love would still be something

about

First announced on Cranes Records during the Spring of 2020 in the form of the Wraiths 12” single, Where You Are follows up with an eponymous LP: nine chapters that let bleed an addictive brooding, summoning the noise-textured spirits of Bedhead, Unwound or Engine Down, as well as an embrace of melody and soaring dynamics.
The immediacy of the band’s production leaves space for lyrics that touch in a detached way on solitude, mourning and longing. But projected onto a fractured, cryptic timeline they challenge definition - confession or broken fiction?
The waters of the lake are further rippled by the inclusion of an extended narrative text and a reproduction lost reel of Super 8 film. Somewhere between River’s Edge and Last Days, tales of teenage wilderness and impossible futures, Where You Are’s songs aim to reconcile us with the notion that the times we have are the celebration of the memories they leave us with -  they are always the last times.

about

Where You Are

Where You Are blend slowcore, grunge and free-rock influences into songs of hope and loss.
Where You Are is a band from your home town; we wish we were from every hometown at once.
We are a band from the present; everything we play has already been played, every word already voiced. The times we have are the celebration of the memories they leave us with. They are always the last times.
