    On their debut LP, 2014 Anxiety, Sakawa Boys fuse alternative rock and shoegaze, through tunnels of psychedelia and krautrock. With a strong pop sensibility atop a progressive framework, the album journeys from quiet introspection to noisy confessions, showcasing the band's knack for dynamic songwriting, as they tackle themes of self, anxiety and what it's like to be in your mid-late 20s.

    Pressed on 180g black vinyl.

I don’t want to be fated I’d like to choose When someone Moves behind me Someone who is not me You’ve sequenced my genome Am I suitably frail Just tell me That you like me It’s what I’d like to hear Ooh Taken from the real I don’t want to feel

What happened last night was it a nightmare My skin was pulling off But it excited me the way the walls bend when I opened the door I’m staring at the sun I’m staring at the floor I fell a thousand miles I scratched my name out I took a nom de plume I rode a sonic boom wants to taste thunder a sticky sugary fight she can’t remember she can’t remember and i’m fighting on too too many fronts ease my cracked bones put it all back together assassins throwing stars the jet black beams a little piece of colour illuminated me and i’m fighting on too too many fronts ease my cracked bones oh ooh woah oh put it all back together

I am a stranger in my own skin No guests arrive There’s flesh to fry Spitting nonsense outside your window I catch the light begin again begin again (x4) Against the coming waves I have the hope of a saint In a coracle It breaks the bows All these dirty words I eat your poison darts I eat them whole What’s left for me Break it off and feed it to me Just want a piece break it off and feed it to me I don’t want to wait again You’re never going to take me with
4.
And finally the words come patching up the broken line It’s hardwired in my blood the push and pull I am my father’s son Show me what desire is and show me where the line is So teenage and so tragic A flair for the dramatic I am my father’s son What’s wrong With trying There’s no harm In trying Just suffer like an artist and home is where the heart is I was always less than honest I was always less than honest I am my father’s son

Take my hand Don’t be scared I want what’s best for you catch my fire in cold desire i want what’s best for you And I wait for it And these tunnels never end

There’s nothing to fall back on now Do I jump off the deep end Do I call up my best friend a pantomime a farce will the morning erase it can I ever replace it I can’t describe when when I feel cold and when I go out I just feel old the things you wanted I wish I gave but there’s no choice anyway It takes my courage in an instant I love the days when we’re not different I take no pleasure in this distance I take no pleasure from this distance Why can’t I? Came back again Why did I come back Came back again Why did I come back

05:41
Take Everything you can Watch the shoots Spring from my hand Wound Against you Tied down I left you Caught again Oh make it stop make it stop make it stop make it stop make it end Wound Against you Tied down I left you I trust that it was worth it In the end An open hidden secret Playing out its madness
