Leap Day 02:16 video
Face is hot You call me dumb again I know I’m not It’s not the same thing as just Being wrong when I’m gone with just a t-shirt on I just thought you’d hear by now Throw me off Losing perspective and My mind’s gone soft From all the TV and the Ways you find to push around my confidence I just hope I’m steady this time We could ice each other out But I think it’s too cold for that right now Settle down Feels like I’m watching myself Slowly drown I need to hear you say that You’d go back to that leap day on a Wednesday I need to hear you say that You’d go back to that leap day on a Wednesday just to protect who I am now

Supervise 03:39
Couldn’t feel it at all when my head hit the ball How I used to be somebody’s baby Did you mean what you said when you went through my head? Had good bones but the floorboards were shaky I don’t think it’s relevant that I don’t have the answers Try to fake a career lose yourself to a year This is all readjusting No growing up from here I could put you in glass egg you on make you mad Never knew the right ways to impress you I’ll be humming along to your old favorite song Watch the sun sparkling down on the toll booth I don’t think of you and me when I’m not by a mirror Couldn’t shake what you said you were wrong even then It was easy to love me No growing up from here Please You gotta help me I fell too deep Hanging onto entropy I’m on my knees Praying for a remedy All because she Asked if I was happy What else would I be? Wishing you were here got old real soon Tried to supervise them got too blue Wishing you were here got old real soon Tried to hide it from you got too blue

Let’s face it I’ve taken the fun out of everything Now it’s a long night Let’s shake it Back down to the basement turn out the light And hold on tight Don’t tell me To get over these things so easily I’ve got an ice cream heart I’m melting No shade and I’ve been out here way too long Trying to hold on No happy ending I still need you To tell me I was right I tried the key again This morning And I couldn’t get inside

Out of all the things I’ve given up to break your heart The poetry is the worst part And I don’t know who’s better off I don’t feel so smart But I’ve taken every piece apart Now I could be a work of art Leaning on your windowsill Say what you wanted Can’t help There’s a marching band That you can’t hear but I can So I need you to hold my hand Maybe put on a video Thought it’d be enough Getting rid of all the rotten stuff Now I’m hearing four different songs at once And I’d rather not be alone Say what you wanted Can’t help And I tried to be the one you wanted

about

After four albums of expertly crafted pop punk, Remember Sports follows up last year’s epic Like a Stone with the first EP of their decade-long run. Recorded piecemeal in their respective homes, sometimes together, sometimes apart, Leap Day trades the live immediacy of their studio classics for something cozier, though no less rousing. The core trio of Carmen Perry, Catherine Dwyer, and Jack Washburn have always kept up active home recording practices for their solo projects–Carmen as Addie Pray, Catherine as Spring Onion, Jack under his own name–and here we find them gently folding sounds sprung from their bedrooms into their signature brand of basement rock.

Absent a dedicated drummer for the first time in their recorded history, the band opts for simple drum machine accompaniment, lending the music a fresh weightlessness even as Carmen’s arresting vocals and sharp lyrics bring gravity in all their righteous anger, scathing self-reproach, and disarming tenderness. Musically, all the thrilling guitar riffs and grooving bass lines we’ve come to expect are here, but the gradual recording process offered the band more opportunity to explore and experiment, adding on subtle layers of instrumentation, distortion, and electronics, and with them a warm sense of depth. In all, Leap Day is a short and sweet, loose but confident affair; at once a reminder of Remember Sports’ absolute mastery of the pop rock anthem and a tantalizing sip from the well of ideas they have yet to plumb.
