Noah Gundersen Profile Information

  • watermelon:
when i was a kid, my family’s house burned down. we lived out in the country and at first the fire trucks couldn’t find us. so i ran barefoot down the mile long gravel road, in the middle of december, to bring them to us. i think about that gravel road a lot. 
i’ve always had a terrible time with monogamy. i think it represents something more than just sex, theres a feeling of being trapped, of “the end”, of a slow death. i’ve raged against this my whole life, while at the same time desperately wanting a partner. just wanting to fill that hole in the chest.

  • all my friends:
andy and i had a project for a while where we would get a bunch of our friends in a studio to write and record a song in one day. just making stuff for the fun of it. this was the first of those sessions. one of the most fun sessions i’ve ever been a part of. sean lane summoned some kind of magic for the drums. we dragged erik walter’s stoned ass out of bed at 1 in morning to come down and play guitar.
i rewrote the lyrics later as a reflection on a time in my life where i was essentially learning to “lighten up”, living in that shiny haze where everyone feels immortal. really, it’s just a song about cocaine.

I’m desperate for a message, calling out your name

I’m sending up a raven and a dove

Trying to quell the panic rising in my chest

Like a mother at a missing persons desk

She was ghosting on a high note, like a halo from a gun

She disappeared in smoke in the last light of the sun 
I was burning my eyelids trying to stare into the blaze

Trying to see around the edges but the light got in my way
