Onset is the first single from "Lilt" to be released on Community Records //To Lose La Track//Stiff Slack June 9th



"This song is about feeling the constant noise and hustle of the city, and its affect on me," Wilkins wrote to The FADER in an email. "Growing up hiking and camping in the Ozarks forged an inner peace in me that has gotten quieter over the years. A lot of our songs explore the tension between city and nature; work and play. I had workshopped the song back home in the Ozarks, but when I presented it to the band, it really blossomed into something wonderful! I finished the lyrics in peace under a ginkgo tree the morning before recording in one of the largest cities in the world, Tokyo."

lyrics

I can feel the onset of the
City noise in culmination
Would it put an end to all that I was after?
Could it put an end to all that I was after?

I can feel the onset of the
City noise in conversation

Would it put an end to all that i was after?
Could it put an end to all that I was after?

I could be the one to lose
I could be the one to choose

Never been too
Fond of all this
City noise that wells up in me

But could it get me back to all that I was after?
Could it put an end to all that I was after?
Could it put an end to all that I was after?
Would it put an end to all that I was after?

I could be the one to choose


I could be the one to lose
I could be the one to choose
