about

"Blurry" is the second single off Beth // James’ second EP, Falling. With just three tracks, 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 releases on Friday, February 1, 2019.

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.

lyrics

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
