New Beard Brooklyn, New York

NEW BEARD returns!

"My People Are Around" is a 7 song EP showcasing New Beard's massive, stripped down live sound. It stands in stark contrast to the heavily orchestral LP New Beard City.

Recorded live over the course of 2 days, this is raw, unfiltered New Beard in full on-rock mode; effortless and energetic.

Enjoy this heaping slice of beard pie, but save room for New Beard's next LP!!

Track Name: I Walk the Streets ("Live" at Loho)
I sit here alone considering things
I spend too much time considering things
like who's on my side
how do I get by
am I still dead
am I suddenly alive?
I think that today you might already know.
Hang your head over, watch the wind blow.
Echos slowly glide
over mountains high
am I in my head?
am I finally outside?

What I saw too much for a six year old
walk the bus aisle sliding backwards, it will go faster if I roll
What I saw, I cannot escape your glow
walk the bus aisle sliding backwards it will go faster if I roll
Track Name: Given (feat. Gustav Ejstes)
God in his infinite wisdom has given me to you
but your religion still beckons me
the infinitely naked I crave to see you completed and working, valor high
You painted without ever looking at what it was you drew
I can't find my vision or reason
I've given both to you
I'm glad though and hope that you keep it, valor high
cave in give in to me who you are
reach down into the soil of you
these letters you see are the reflections of what you've been in me and how long you've been there
if all I had I gave to you
for all I gave I had you too
and all I wanted was a screw
to tighten what in me was loose
Track Name: Terran Holiday
Terran holiday
Seems so far away
More than anything
So unsettling

And then we came and made it till we're this far
All in my mind

I came home with you
Like you told me to
Something we both never knew
We took home and took hold to

And then we came and made it till we're this far
All in my mind
