about

Part shoegaze, part 90s-alternative and grunge, Uneasy is the debut album and inaugural release from Simi Valley’s Sheer. Formed in the summer of 2014, quickly becoming a staple in the greater LA scene, Sheer channel an earnestness redolent to that of mid-90s emo and indie rock, while primarily occupying a reverb-induced space suggestive of Galaxie 500 and The Jesus And Mary Chain.

While Uneasy introduces the band as one with a kinship for catchy, pop-informed melodies, their focus relies most heavily on building evocative and emotive soundscapes. Uneasy will be released on November 20th on limited edition cassette tapes, and digital download and streaming outlets.

Track Name: Monochrome
absent minded
days rewinded
blankest stare
hyper aware
scatter brained
love reclaim
undeserving
unashamed

colorless tunnel vision
monochrome
mindless repetition
monotone

watered eyes
told otherwise
hollow heart
torn apart
life sustained
love restrained
undeserving
unashamed
Track Name: Ojai
orange trees by the canyon
in a town i'd never seen
i want to be where you've been
with you inside a dream

show me all the places
what it means to be alive
i want to see what you've seen
with my own two eyes

pull over on the road
take your photo in the field
in between the cactus plants
a scene that seems surreal
you looked like a postcard
standing out from mountain view
the valley as your background
a portrait made for two

show me all the places
what it means to be alive
i want to see what you've seen
with my own two eyes

a day like a dream
i wish i could stay here
with you and me
inside a dream
Track Name: Bored To Death
i'll make this easy for myself
stay at home, fill my shelves
made alive, i'm bored to death
hole in my chest, slows my breath

live everyday waiting for death
to show up at my front door
his empty eyes, blade held high
he finally settled the score

do as your told, sit and stare
they can't hear us, we don't care
my own thoughts make me deaf
times stands still and blood runs cold
i don't need you i'll stay fed
cut my ties and burn my bed

live everyday waiting for death
to show up at my front door
his empty eyes, blade held high
he finally settled the score
Track Name: Mask
knees on the ground
cross above my head
forgive me father
for i have sinned

hear them getting closer
ears to the ground
hoof beats and voices
i'll never be found

last survivor of the tribe
first that ever was
death will find me
before any man does
Track Name: Cursed Again
nowadays, i don't get no sleep
keeps me up. until my eyes bleed
no more food, i can't keep it down
live alone, in this distorted world

cursed again

it's been a year, since i've closed my eyes
no more friends, my company is paid
black caffeine, running through these veins
nothing helps, i just want to sleep

cursed again
Track Name: Orion
fall down
fall on your knees
Track Name: Skin
heard you speak for the last time
felt the struggle in your breath
watched your lips close for the last time
felt it sink into my chest

felt you in my bones
felt you leave this home
i saw your blood
i knew i would

held your hand like the first time
tight enough to keep you here
felt your warmth for the last time
watched your skin turn sheer

felt you in my bones
felt you leave this home
i saw your blood
i knew i would

did you hear me when you passed?
when your skin turned cold and blue
did you hear me when i asked?
if they could take me too

i felt you leave this home
Track Name: Yesterday's Weather
looking down at the mess you made
call me out as the one to blame
clean it all up with bare hands
throw it all out by demand

play in the street as car pass by
lay on steel tracks and wait to die
we both break down in separate ways
somehow impact feels the same
Track Name: Waste Away
bash my head into the wall
i never even cared at all
bleed until my mind is clear
i never wanted to be here

face against the steering wheel
you can't tell me how to feel
throw my body through the glass
i can't wait for this to pass

i'll waste away
always away

leave me bruises black and blue
this was always about you
another face without a name
i won't be the one to blame

underwater, underground
leave me there to drown
i didn't ask to feel this way
i never needed you around

don't ask me to stay
i'll waste away
Track Name: Heavenly
suddenly, you were leaving
slowly, fade away
heavenly, miles above me
slowly, float away
Track Name: Uneasy
am i speaking too loudly?
i hope that you don't mind
couldn't tell if you were laughing
couldn't hear you over mine

just feeling uneasy

am i standing too closely?
i hope you still want me around
i'll try not to keep staring
keep my eyes aimed to the ground

just feeling uneasy

let me down easy
