about

Sherpa Auckland, New Zealand

‘Blues & Oranges’ expands the sound shaped on their debut, where they fused catchy melodic pop songs with the spirited energy of punk and dunked it in a vat of psychedelia. Grander, the new album is a display of strengthened songwriting, musicianship and arrangements all captured and enhanced by the production maestro Kody Nielson (The Mint Chicks, Opossom). ... more

Track Name: Bzzy
I was walking on a mountain
set on fire by all of our burning desires
It’s deception that I’ve ingested
Inescapable motion

If you could see I’m burning for you

I was swimming in seduction
A flaming choir bursts from electrical wire
Looking pensive, sing me to detention’s
deduction and erosion

If you could see I’m burning for you

If you could see I’m dying for you
Track Name: Love Film
I want to take, want to take
Oh, I would take her
out on a date, on a date
Oh, to the pictures
Don’t watch the film but just film
my own short movie
about the way she moves,
about the way she grooves

Every little moment I spend with the girl I love
I want to film, want to film her

I pick her up on my pickup truck, I know
it’s not the best, not the best type of transport
I set it up on my new tripod, a long shot
of her exiting, exiting her household
Track Name: Homeless
Oh, hi there, Mr. Homeless Man
I see that you need a hand
Come over to my house and I’ll get you stoned tonight

Feeding good vibes to the homeless
“I’m feeling high”, said the homeless man
with a voice that was doused in emotion
Are you feeling alright?

I wake up, it’s really cold
I must have left open the door
I come to my senses, I’m inside a cardboard box


So don’t you get high with the homeless
I try my best but it’s hopeless
So don’t you get high with the homeless
Unless you want an emotional night
So cold and tired
Track Name: Blind Buzz
I’m a blind guy looking for someone to love
I’ve seen some dark, dark times
Now I wanna share my life in love

Get the feeling she is here tonight
I feel my hairs erecting
Comb my hair, I guess I look alright
maybe great

She smells of jasmine
It’s become my favourite smell ever
Like the flowers in her hair, her voice is soft and
she whispers in my ear

“Put this in your mouth and trust that I’ll
never hurt you, baby”
A half hour passes by, to my surprise
My third eye
Track Name: Quit Time
There’s no time (Yes, there is)
There’s no time (Yes, there is)
There’s no time to do the things I really want

If there’s time
well, it’s not mine
I just need time (Yes, you do)
to do the things I really want

Say I’m wrong
Say you knew all along
Please say I’m wrong
so I can do what I really want

Always, time goes away
when we play
Just dreaming my life away
so alive I can stay
Track Name: Already Fire
It’s not enough to know
I miss you so much
I ought to kill myself
to know you’ll grow into a fire

Say you will before you’re already fire

I had a dream you wore a reddened storm over
your amber hair, you told me where to die that night
Track Name: Can Surreal
Your cancer is awesome
Looking on the bright side
It looks like Richard Nixon
Come find me on the bright side of the Sun

Your cancer was awesome
Looking on the bright side
It took off
Death bought him and sold it to the next guy
down the line
Track Name: Eclypse The Night Away
Don’t go out, escape injury
The public stare sprains your spirit
Her heart connects to all you see
Her nerves can feel your dirty habit

“Eclipse the night away”, she says
Leave the colours in the day
“Eclipse the night away”, she says
Track Name: Die Jung
Everyone has a place in the meaning of life
I don’t know quite where it is
but I’m sure that it’s fine
to be the ones who have died young
for having too much fun

If you die young
Remember to fly high
No reason to cry
If you die young tonight


I’m the one with a heart that is weaker than yours
and his, my chances are slim
of outrunning my foolish behaviour
when night bursts in colour
under lacklustre vices and their
fluorescent disguises
Track Name: Dawn Glass Morn
Got so high I could barely choose
where to die when he said I lose
Where is the dawn to help me through?

Wish I’d stayed at home tonight
Wait in line to tell me I’m alive
Where is the dawn to help me through?

In a glass house morning
I saw the coolness in your eye
and then I made you cry
and then I made you cry

It was a glass house morning
You saw I wasn’t by your side
and then I made you cry
and then I made you cry

Got so high I could barely choose
where to lie when he said I lose
Got so high I could barely choose
where to die when he said I lose
Got so high I could barely choose
where I lied when he said I lose
Got so high I could barely choose
where I died when he said I lose
Track Name: Miyunhey
Standing next to you (Getting dementia)
Showing gratitude (Getting dementia)
You raise the amplitude (Getting dementia)
Run away from you (Getting dementia)

Forgot to mention
God’s detention
Forgot to mention to
dodge detention

She won’t remember you (Getting dementia)
Without a mind you’re screwed (Getting dementia)
A positive attitude (Getting dementia)
Will help get you through
Track Name: Not Today
The ocean breeze calls yesterday
but not today
Your seldom kiss haunts yesterday
Oh, but not today
Track Name: Sunrise
Sunrise, I’ve got a good feeling
that today is the day I’ve waited for
Sunrise, I’ve got a good feeling
that today is the day I’ve waited for

Wake up to find that I’ve lost, lost my mind
I cannot see, I’m so blind
I cannot find, find my mind
So I just sleep, sleep all day
hoping my dreams take me away
Away from this house, away from this room
Away from the fear, away from gloom
