Stephen Bailey In an era where bands tend to downplay songwriting and production ambitions for the sake of seeming "authentic", El Silver Cabs come at you with the best of both and to hell with perceptions. Hooky soulful vocals, fun shreddy guitar playing, and memorable hooks that are in and out so fast you can't help but hit repeat. Favorite track: Local Train.

Track Name: Rainy Days
Fine I'll stay
I never meant to shit all over your parade
But I'm so done with spending all our time this way
Just cause it starts with a spark don't mean it won't decay
I can't keep faking I love you til we're grey
Who descended with haste
Every day
You used to always have something cute to say

I hate the way you lust for rainy days
Wishing you could turn the blue to grey

I've always known
I'd rather settle for something than be on my own
I don't want to be old eating cold soup alone
No one to laugh at my jokes, no new texts on my phone
Just me and my TV means a quiet home
I'd rather sit with you stoned
Sepia toned
At least the problems we have are local grown

I hate the way you lust for rainy days
Wishing you could turn the blue to grey

You turn me off again
Track Name: George Washington
Make me a hero
Somebody's got to be that guy
Back in Virginia
They swear that I'm one of a kind
Just above zero
Spending the winter marred in grime
They said take it or leave it
I guess I'm leaving you behind
And I don't mind
I was king for a time
And I don't mind

I wanna be George Washington
I wanna be George Washington

Two is enough babe
Don't want to keep what isn't mine
Bring it back to the people
I'm sure that they can choose just fine
Heading back to Virginia
Run out my clock among the vines
They said take it or leave it
I guess I'm leaving you behind
And I don't mind
I was king for a time
And I don't mind

I wanna be George Washington
I wanna be George Washington
Track Name: Local Train
Put me on the local train
Stare out the window thinking over
How it's all the same mistakes
That circle around us, pile up and drown us again

You said that he's just a friend
And those dirty boxers are mine
Those half-cooked alibis, why do you insist that we're fine?

Together but in separate rooms
Nobody's speaking and Bob Dylan's
Seeping from the floor below us
I know all the lyrics but the last thing I want to do

Is baby be friends with you
That's 18 months I gave up
For you to find a new fuck
That's just embarrassing luck

You're gonna put me on a train
You're gonna put me on a local train
