about

With just three tracks, Beth // James second EP, "Falling" is their most personal compilation of songs yet. The duo takes listeners on a heartfelt journey, dealing with the disappointments, confusion, and struggles of the past year, all the while maintaining hope.

The EP was recorded in just a matter of days in September 2018 by Justin Douglas at King Electric Studios in Austin, Texas. The self-produced EP was recorded all to 2-inch tape with everyone in the same room, resulting in a very warm, unified sound, but “The main focus of our sound is always our two voices singing harmony together,” said Beth // James.

Track Name: Wasted on Sundays
I’m a little scared to get to where I’m meant to go
Little unprepared I’m just pretending
That I know how it feels
To be killin’ it

Cuz we’re all just trying to look real cool
We’re all just getting half way through
We’re all getting wasted in the afternoon
On Sundays

But we’re all just trying to be the one
With the fancy apartment, son of a gun
Look back one day
And say, “I still had fun”

Try to wake up early every day to get shit done
Workin’ hard is easy, but it’s tough
To get exactly what you want
But I’ll never stop

Cuz we’re all just trying to look real cool
We’re all just getting half way through
We’re all getting wasted in the afternoon
On Sundays

But we’re all just trying to be the one
With the fancy apartment, son of a gun
Look back one day
And say, “I still had fun”

Oooh…
Track Name: Blurry
This picture keeps getting blurry
Maybe it’s the booze or all the bad that’s on the news at night and
I’m trying every day
To figure shit out
But I’m still a little lost on where to start

I remember thinking when I was a kid
I’d be a TV star
Chasing aliens with four of my best friends

But now I think
That I’ll just be traveling around
Playing music to a crowd of no one
And it could be
Lonely and beautiful
On that empty road

This picture keeps getting blurry
Drifting in and out of view like giant red balloons
I remember when you looked at me and said
“Can we talk about the demons in my body
spreading all around”

I used to believe when I was young
I could fix anything
Take your aching heart and tie it with a string

But now I think
That I’ll just be traveling around
Playing music to a crowd of no one
And it could be
Lonely and beautiful
On that empty road
Track Name: Falling
When I hear your voice across the line
Honey it gets me every time
Whether I’m feeling big or small
You are the one I wanna call

Under the silver winter sky
When every star fades out to die
Paper cups and violet wine
Beautiful how your hand fits mine

Darling, won’t you hold me in your arms because
I’m falling, falling, falling
Never, will we be too far away because
I’m taking you with me

And even after everything
You are the one who makes me sing
I’ll follow you till the end of time
Cuz I am yours and you are mine

Darling, won’t you hold me in your arms because
I’m falling, falling, falling
Never, will we be too far away because
I’m taking you with me
in love, ooh
In love

Maybe there’s something else for me
But if there is I don’t wanna see
Cuz honey, you’re the one I choose
You for me and me for you

Darling, won’t you hold me in your arms because
I’m falling, falling, falling
Never, will we be too far away because
I’m taking you with me
