You’re invited to Tropic Harbour, a utopian space constructed by Mark Berg for peace of mind. These bedroom pops are unabashedly dreamy. Mashed earworms and mint infused hooks blend with swooning guitar knits. The result: a levitating tincture!, a distillation of a pop pantheon that runs the course from Youth Lagoon and Wild Nothing all the way to Cocteau Twins and The Smiths. ... more

Track Name: Can't Pretend
I might have lost out in this game
Before I even learned to play
But now I think that I’ll find out
How to live all the same

I wish that I could skip ahead
So I could know how this will end
Although I’m scared of what I’d see
So I’ll just close my eyes and pretend

I’ll just pretend I’m ok with this
I’m not ok with this..
I can’t pretend I’m ok with this
Track Name: Come Back
I want to thank you for coming here
Hold me through the night just hold me tight
I'm so scared to be alone
My heart tends to calm down when you're around

So come back with
Come back with me
Come back with me

Now that I got a taste for your company
How can I relax on my own
I imagine a life where i'm waking up to you
Creating decisions for a situation that doesn't exist
Track Name: Softness
Waking up to a beam of light
Tracing across my shoulder

Muted tones begin to fade in
So lay back down

Find a way to fall back in

Eventually the world will come into focus

With all of its harshness but for now

I’ll wrap myself in this softness.

Hands to my chest 

While my senses adjust
Reflecting on myself

Surrounded by thoughts
I’m pretty sure the day will wait

So lay back down and sink right in
