Afterthought 03:24
I will not be your afterthought, I will not You gotta go, you gotta go now A tiny little part of it You're not the thing, the thing you're not I will not be your afterthought, I will not You gotta go, you gotta go now Acoustic focus on this moment You were cool but I was lonesome You will not be mine after all, you will not You gotta go, you gotta go now I've gotta go, I've gotta go now (I don't see you round my doorway) Medieval romance like you're supposed to It's the tightest way to lie But I will not be your afterthought, I will not You gotta go, you gotta go now
Love You 03:11


Hello dear listener. Thank you for visiting. Here is Afterthought EP.

Find within:

Four carefully arranged lullaby rock songs for the listener's hearing pleasure.

A palette of strings, drums, rich vocal harmonies, and guitars that both strum softly and distort to assert a point.

Lyrics about being a person, self-respect, considering the shortness of life, and having the courage to be vulnerable to new love.

Afterthought EP features string and vocal arrangements deeply inspired by the album Pet Sounds by the Beach Boys, and the album Discover America by Van Dyke Parks.

Also of PARTICULAR general inspiration is the work of Blake Mills and Feist, whose masterful use of dynamic contrast continues to delight at every turn.
