Film School: Heart Full Of Pentagons [mp3]

film-school

There’s a lot going on inside a Film School song, and thankfully it all works. From leering, pulsing guitar to brooding lyrics, the San Francisco based band have captured a shimmering, seething, and triumphant sound. With a style many say is rooted in the tradition of 80’s new wave Brit rock, Film School’s latest album Fission is more energetically lucid and accessible than their prior work spawning likeable dance beats and sweetly melancholy harmonies. At times perhaps we feel a bit lost in the cacophony, but we don’t necessarily want to be found. Rather we’re content to ramble amidst their river rapid sounds unsure of, yet serenely excited for, where they’ll take us next.

Fission is out now on Hi Speed Soul. Above photo by Andrew Youseff.

One thought on “Film School: Heart Full Of Pentagons [mp3]

  1. Heart Full of Pentagons

    I won’t fall down when you’re caught in a lie
    I won’t fall down when you cover your eyes
    And if you change the direction, it feels like you’ll never decide
    But if you change the direction, it’s only a matter of time
    I’m falling in love
    I’m falling alone

    I won’t fall down when you run to his side
    I won’t fall down when you’re running to hide
    And when we make a connection, it feels like it’s some kind of sign
    And if you make a connection, it’s only a matter of time

    We can change our minds, decide to tell them everything
    except for your boyfriends
    except for your friends
    We can change this time pretend to know what’s happening
    except that we know when
    know when it ends

    But if it stays here
    I’ll tell you my thoughts
    I’ll tell you the truth but it won’t seem right
    I’ll you it first, I’ll tell you the lie
    We’ll work out fine as us five

    I’ll tell you my thoughts
    I’ll tell you the lie
    I’ll tell you the truth but it won’t seem right
    I’ll tell you it first
    I’ll tell you the lie
    We’ll keep in our heart what we can’t confide

    Then we will fall to pieces
    Then we will fall to pieces
    Yeah we will fall to pieces
    Yeah we will fall
