REVIEWS

Eric @ NoObject: "SPACE. Not outer space. Not the space bar. But SPACE.

It’s the space between chords, between drum hits and between vocal lines that makes “Closer” an incredible opener. A soft harmonic ringing carries me from section to section. Playing to the strengths of shoegaze as a genre, the track gives off a smooth weighted feeling. Like opiates, or a lazy boy recliner (or both… whatever you prefer).

Dronefly is a very polished EP. There’s no sharp corners or excessive noise. But its exactly this neatness that makes me want more..."

Samantha @ TheEqualGround: "All four of the songs on Dronefly’s album evoke a different vibe but they all so brilliantly coexist. This, to me, is a sure sign of a band that has potential."

Track Name: Closer
On planet where I
First encountered your kind
Where fingers beam and ripples burn
For a whisper of sky
Contemplating your eyes
Could you transmit to my world?
Distant beam of cooling light

I’ll bring you closer
I’ll bring you closer
I’ll bring you close
Close
Close

On the planet where I
First encountered your sigh
The sweetest aria
Was I calling your name
As you floated in space
Unaware of my cry?
Distant beam of cooling light

I’ll bring you closer
I’ll bring you closer
I’ll bring you close
So close now
You’ll share my every doubt
So close now
You’ll share my doubt
Track Name: Doldrums
Sunlight let us in
The world is prone to spin
When what is fast goes slow
When sleep is hope

I swallow a pill and call it life
And hope that the drug will make me right
Out of sight or mind
And will they always follow?

This fight I can win
I’ll make the earth stop
Till I
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Again, again

I swallow a pill and call it life
And hope that the drug will make me right
Out of sight or mind
And will they always follow?

Where I go
Where I go
Deep in this hole
Here I am

Hey, I cannot begin to keep up with madness
This is the world we know
Did you fall in right after I went?
I am not alone
Not alone

Swallow a pill and call it life
And hope that the drug will
(Here I go)
Make me right
Out of sight or mind
Will they always follow?
Track Name: Joysticks
Boy for a day
Give what you take
X-ray vision and my good friend
Foolin’ around
Foolin’ around

Fall in love for a day
Joysticks in a race
On a mission with my best friend
Roll on the ground
Cry like a clown
Foolin’ around
Foolin’ around

It’s unlikely
Mama will get after us
On a Sunday
We save the world
At least once
At least once

Rockets sing
On my screen
Laser beam
Away
Track Name: Forever Light
Saw you happy alone
Knew we would get along
And in your eyes my feeling
Touch the silent kind

It would be a hassle
A social convention
I’m not much for ceremony
Inconvenient, but
Would you bother?
If we had to marry each other?
I believe we’re getting close
Las Vegas knows
Forever light

In the light I can see
You are standing with me
And in this moment I’m so happy
To be here
Because your eyes shine
With the neon light and love

It would be a hassle
A social convention
I’m not much for ceremony
Inconvenient, but
Would you bother?
If we had to marry each other?
I believe we’re getting close
Las Vegas knows
Forever light
