about

The Atlantic Ocean EP is Revolution, I Love You’s attempt to use the disparate trappings of their sound, the punk guitars, drum machines, and noisy synthesizers, to make something resembling classic rock n roll. The songs are influenced as much by The Replacements, Bruce Springsteen, and Big Star as they are by the electronica and hip hop artists whose influence was so prevalent on Revolution, I Love You’s earlier recordings.

about

Revolution, I Love You Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Revolution, I Love You makes experimental alt-pop, merging fuzzy guitars and dramatic choruses with a backbone of live drums, electronic beats, and buzzing bass. Katrina Murray of The Key (WXPN) says, “Crunchy synth work and loud guitar riffs are central to Revolution, I Love You‘s modern twist on classic rock ‘n roll.” ... more

Track Name: The Atlantic Ocean
Here's the beach where I would go when I was a kid
The sand's black, the water's grey in the North Atlantic

We'd anchor my granddad's boat here in the wet sand
I'd tie it with knots I learned with eight year old hands

You told me you can't swim and come from a long line
of skinny midwestern folks who like their feet dry

You know I'd never pull you out into the waves
I just want you to know the world can be this way,
that something could be this big

Kiss me now, while your lips taste like suntan lotion
Close your eyes and listen for the breaking ocean

Just trust me, kick off your shoes and cuff up your jeans
I won't take you past the point the waves touch your knees

You know I'd never pull you out into the waves
I just want you to know the world can be this way,
that something could be this big
Track Name: My Time Is Not My Own
I just want to write a song
more clever than this
but you pay good money by the hour
to keep me working
I know my time's not my own
but my time is precious
I've got better things to do
at least better than this

When I look out on the bigger things
I would change it all, I would change it all
When I look out on the bigger things
I would change it all

There's still cities left to burn
There's still buildings left unturned
So what the hell are you waiting for?
There's still cities left to burn
There's still buildings left unturned
So whatcha waiting for?

My boss once told me that I was
the perfect worker
He knows my heart is somewhere else
but that won't last forever
Because I got more debts than I can pay
and no money saved
I need him more than he needs me
and he likes it that way

When I look out on the bigger things
I would change it all, I would change it all
When I look out on the bigger things
I would change it all

There's still cities left to burn
There's still buildings left unturned
So what the hell are you waiting for?
There's still cities left to burn
There's still buildings left unturned
So whatcha waiting for?

I know my time's not my own
Track Name: Shotgun
I know I said I get restless quickly
I don't stay in getting high all day
but you're so pretty in my tshirt,
if you wear nothing else, I'll stay

I just want to kill time with you

The sun's gone up and back down the curtains
the shadows crossing your legs are long
You fell asleep with your cigarette lit
I'll put it out in my soda can

I just want to kill time with you
