about

“On their debut EP “Close Down the Woods,” Robotanists root around in the electro-noir explored by Mazzy Star and Portishead, with Ellquist’s sultry voice narrating the way through forays into the dark both metaphorical and literal. Their penchant for the atmospheric never becomes an overbearing aesthetic, though — you can take the title of one of their songs, “Subtlety Is Underrated,” seriously.”
~ Kevin Bronson, Buzz Bands (USA)

Track Name: Wait a Minute Here
LYRICS:

Wait a minute here
don't go drifting off on me
Lets just make it clear
Till the end of all we know is here
Don't leave
Just breathe
With me
'Till the end of all we love is here
Don't wait
For me
To breathe
Don't wait

Now all I can see
It's just you and me
'Till, we somehow find relief

Now all I can see
It's just you and me
just you and me
just you and me
'Till, we somehow find relief

When the coast is clear
You can go about your way
But not while I am here
'Cause the start of all we know is near
Don't leave
Just breathe
With Me

Now all I can see
It's just you and me
'Till we somehow find relief

Now all I can see
It's just you and me
just you and me
just you and me
'Till, we somehow find relief

ooooooo...

Now all I can see
It's just you and me
'Till, we somehow find relief

Now all I can see
It's just you and me
just you and me
just you and me
'Till, we somehow find relief
Relief
Track Name: Subtlety is Underrated
LYRICS:

Compromise is not an option here
Temptation is no excuse
Sitting there with your hands folded
Well what’s use?
Just turn away and have no shame

You tame me with a glance
Kill me just the same
Piece by piece You threw it all away
All that kept us sane but I did the same
Shift the blame

Then “Why” was the last
Civil thing you said to me
Well why should I answer
You made a mess
Of Me

Subtlety is underrated
Confidence is no excuse
Please just stop explaining
Cause what’s the use?

Just turn away and have no shame
You tame me with a glance
Kill me just the same
Piece by piece I threw it all away
All that kept us sane but you did the same
Shift the blame

Then “Why” was the last
Civil thing you said to me
Well why should I Listen
You’ve made a mess

Either way we make no sense
We just ignore the facts
Track Name: Close Down The Woods
LYRICS:

Is this just the way that you want it to be - for me
Is this just the way that you think you should feel
do you even see it


is this just the thing
is this just the thing you need
is this just it


pull your weight
you're such a waste
don't hesitate
to show your face
to me
to me
to me

Am I just a faint memory you can leave to be
is this just a game that we're forfeiting
do you even see it
is this just the thing
Is this just he thing you need
to breathe

pull your weight
you're such a waste
don't hesitate
to show your face
show your face
Don't show your face
to me

So this is all you gave Along the way
But "not so much the Muse," you say
Just the one you made

So I'll resign
before you can forget
the life you'll leave behind
that's mine

So this is where we stayed Along the way
With not so much the love you claimed
just the one we made

So I'll resign
before you can forget
the life you'll leave behind
that's mine
Track Name: Slow Motion
LYRICS:

Silence me go ahead see right through me
It’s what you don’t do that kills me
Still I try
Can’t you see the way you love to torture me
Its what you don’t say that’s agony
Why do I try

What a thrill pining for you
How it kills knowing you never will

So run & hide no one’s looking
Every glance pierces through me
Every sigh you give
Makes it all go around again in slow motion

Pity me go ahead do anything
It’s what I won’t try that’s breaking me
All in time
Sympathy I need this more than anything
Feels like I’m unraveling
It’s all a lie

What a thrill pining for you
How it kills knowing we never will
So run & hide no one’s looking
Every glance pierces through me

Every sigh you give
Makes it all go around again in slow motion
So far I’m far gone I can’t separate the Meanings

So far I’m caught up in it
So run & hide no one’s looking
Every glance pierces through me
Every sigh you give
Makes it all go around again in slow motion
Track Name: Tasteless
LYRICS:

So amazed why do we do these things
Anyway, you’re such a bore
For the love I’d wait it out
But the best has come and gone
You smile so sincere
But it’s just not necessary
Let’s assume the worst
Act it out, get off already Already!

I just can’t wait another minute to fail
Let’s go ahead and fake it
You’ll see when it’s through just try to pry your mind from this
You’re such a bore

What a crime wish I was wandering
Any way you still a bore
Its suicide of the senses
But you give me no choice
My nails ache from biting
But I'm still Poised and planning
To just assume the worst
Act it out, get off already Already!

I just can’t wait another minute to fail
Let’s go ahead and fake it
You’ll see when it’s through just try to pry your mind from this
You’re such a bore

I don’t mind Give me hell and turn away
Just rewind call it a sacrifice for nothing
You smile so sincere
But it’s just not necessary
You’re so ordinary
Track Name: Getting By
LYRICS:

Still can't bare the silence
Calling out with no response
May have been some time
but I can still lie
I'm doing fine
just fine
This time, I'm fine
Still can't pause the madness
moving on then falling back
May have been my time
but I can't deny
I'm doing fine Just fine
I'll cry On my time

So this was meant to be
So I was meant to Lose it
when Everything I was we were
together
So Long
Now What

Still wondering why Just getting by
But when you see me again
I won't hesitate to Lie
I'm Fine I'm fine

So this was meant to be
So I was meant to Lose it
when Everything I was we were
together
So Long
Now What

I'm still wasting time Alone this time
and When they come Again
I know they'll try to pry I'll Lie
I'll cry On my time
I'm fine
