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: Glowing Eyes
With the buzz of night air
You told me to take care
Of your hooded face

With glowing eyes
We chased away the wine
To wet grass that soaked our backs

If you don’t know
What you should do
Just lean in and let go

We felt like childhood friends
Unsure if it was meant
For us to be

You gave a faint shiver
And made it so clear
That I should get closer to you
Track Name: Stay Awake
You’re tucked away
In a corner of my mind
Here you’ll stay calling for me
To come back to your side

If you can live without me for a bit
I promise that we will be much closer
After all of this

Just stay awake
I’ll be right back
Don’t close your eyes just yet

It’s not that long that
I will be gone from your life
This empty space I left behind
Will fill right up again

I imagine you running your fingers
Through your pillowcase
Knowing that you’re waiting for me
Makes everything ok
Track Name: Mountain Islands
We are gliding up above
These mountain islands
Looking for somewhere
We can set our feet down

And now here we are completely free
Surrounded by an ocean of clouds
Hiding what’s beneath

We don’t need oxygen all the way up here
Because we already lost our breath a while ago
Track Name: In Our Dreams
If you can’t stay away my dear
Come to my place
So when we wake
We’re not alone

But we drive in separate cars
To our separate homes
With traffic lights
Cascading across our empty seats

Your company is tempting me
And it feeds me and is what I need

So I slow down to turn around
And head back to find you
Waiting past these highway moats

Lets move out someday
So I can sit and wait for you
To show your face
We’ll never have to separate

If you can’t come with me
I will go stay with you my dear
Then we can fall asleep and hold onto
Each other in our dream
Track Name: Your Ghost
You hide your thoughts so well
Covered by the sweetest of smiles
I can tell that you’re scared
When your words speak
Of things that aren’t there

I lean in for a kiss
But you wont let me have this
So instead I’ll hold you tight
Until these fears
Drain out your eyes

I know we can’t go
On like this
Track Name: Now I See
If I cannot begin to say
What I would like to say
Then I’ll switch my mind
Back into this inward gaze

Now I see what’s in front of me

You look so poised
With your trained movements
Standing there
With your cheeky grin

I can tell you’re comfortable in your skin
As my eyes trace around you
Again and again
Track Name: Your Heart
If you cannot find your way in this world
Just hold onto what’s around you my girl
And If I could I would
Spend everyday with you

Follow your heart

Here’s to the taste
Of summer with you
Don’t need to find
Somewhere else to move

Because the promise of the sun
Pushing past the clouds
Makes me think about your face
Lighting up for me
Track Name: Pastel
Take me away to this pastel mist
Peel this film back off my face
So you can look at me
The way you used to
While my eyes adjust
To the beauty of your gaze

Our glistening faces
Now feel so different
You’ve grabbed my attention
Now go back to where we started from

It’s about time we got carried away
Without stopping to think too hard
Now you can look at me
The way you used to
Until I fall beneath
The allure of your eyes
