The Classic Hunt Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

On April 22nd, The Classic Hunt unveil The Lyrids EP for online streaming & download.

Recorded by the five-piece "psychedelic-folk-rock-jazz-punk-blues" band
based out of Philadelphia, the music of The Classic Hunt can be distilled
down to a nebular opposition of tension and release. The group creates a
sound that dissolves the line between the states of anxious isolation &
ecstatic congregation.

Track Name: Back to Life
As the phalanx files in singing "Paladin, Paladin"
A final show of force as the spit dries on your chin
We roast the limbs of the deadass winners, eat the oysters cold and raw
Where the water is crystal clear, Narcissus we become

Why had I wished for endless mysteries?
Singing careless, strange melodies of spices, herbs, flowers. lichens, insects. island chains, and lightning - strike me twice
You flash your priceless paradise to the parasites wearing docksiders, Who fan the fire, fuel the blackouts, blinded by burning cash
We choked up all your coke and hash and set the night on trial
Hell yes that happened, but now for what it's worth,
I'm dying to fuck you back to life

I believe there's no resistance, no fire hoses, no car alarms
I believe there was an instant, we were suddenly calm

Why had I wished for endless mysteries?
Singing careless, strange melodies of spices, herbs, flowers. lichens, insects. island chains, and lightning - strike me twice
You flash your priceless pair o' dice to the parasites wearing docksiders, Who fan the fire, fuel the blackouts, blinded by burning cash
We choked up all your coke and hash and set the night on trial
Hell yes that happened, but now for what it's worth,
I'm dying to fuck you back to life

I'm dying to fuck you back to life

But I feel like you caught me playing possum in a rose garden
After dark on a school night, on a lark,
It was a long shot, stopped short of full bloom,
It was a cautionary tale, you will know too well, too soon,
So long, in case you have forgotten: I'm the one who got you lost,
Parted ways, and left you stranded, standing in an empty park Underneath a tree without a leaf to call it's own
Skin and bones, you're home
Track Name: Catalina
The party was the best attended
Out of all other sought-after sweater weather get-togethers
The company was on point
They smell like lavender and pumpkin pie
Some had scars on their wrists
Some had scars on their thighs
Some prayed to the Lord
Some prayed to the Lord of Flies

But they never say you never know
They always say you'll never know
They never say you never know
They always say you'll never know

In a flash of light,
We're back on the island where the sky was falling
I was kissing you on the green grass
Talk about moonlit
I didn't have to, but I wanted it
Because I didn't know if I'd ever see you again
Are you kidding me?
I wouldn't do it differently

Not for all the wine in Catalina
Not for all the wine in Catalina
Not for all the wine in Catalina

They always say you'll never know Catalina
They always say you'll never know Catalina
They always say you'll never know Catalina
They always say you'll never know
Track Name: Sunflowers for Rye
Bury me in Marion under sunflower fields
And carry me between your teeth
When you chew sunflower seeds

The meaning has become clear now
The feeling has returned somehow
I do not know why I no longer question declension
It must be anosognosia

Are you holding me? Hold and see.
Are you holding me or are you holding me back?

Bury me in Marion under sunflower fields
And carry me between your cheeks
When you chew sunflower seeds
The meaning has become clear now
The feeling has returned somehow
I do not know why I no longer question detention
It must be anosognosia

Are you holding me? Hold and see.
Are you holding me or are you holding me back?

Hold me back
Track Name: Star Vultures
Starving at the altar of the star vulture
Starving at the altar of the star vulture
Watch the Lyrids from the pyramids of the lost culture
Starving at the altar of the star vulture

Don't watch me walk away without saying goodbye

Fall down at the altar of the star vulture
Crawling at the altar of the star vulture
Watch the Lyrids from the pyramids of the lost culture
Starving at the altar of the star vulture

Don't watch me walk away without saying goodbye
