about

Rad Navajo Melbourne, Australia

Xave Moore and Nick Torrens got working on the Rad Navajo project in early 2013, and since its inception, the Rad Navajo name has snowballed. Due to popular demand, the duo were forced to recruit further band members and things really took off, culminating in the ultimate lineup including Hiro Chan, Annika Schmarsel, and Rich Ong. Their debut EP dropped in mid-May and 2014 is shaping up a big year ... more

Track Name: Beans and Birthdays
I woke up today, the sun was shining in my eyes
I left the blinds open, I won’t be getting back to sleep
I went to make myself a coffee but the milk was sour
I went to run myself a shower but there was no heat

I didn’t wake up today, I confused P.M and A.M
I missed my tram, I had to wait five minutes for the next
My friend Russell did not write in my wall for my birthday
I wanted to drink at Rooftop but it started to rain

I know, I should not
Worry about, these problems I got
I know, I should not
Worry about, these problems I got

She put beans in my nachos, what is wrong with her
I didn’t ask for kidney beans, yet there they were
I never get to say what I want when I text
I’m always thwarted by Apple’s ducking autocorrect

I know, I should not
Worry about, these problems I got
I know, I should not
Worry about, these problems I got

I know, I should not
Worry about, these problems I got
I know, I should not
Worry about, these problems I got
Track Name: Appreciate It Anyway
You say you want to be friends, what a lovely arrangement
I’ll just erase from my memory all the days we spent
Laughing hungover, riding the bus
Honestly it’s no fuss
Well you say you hope it’s not all or nothing,
If it’s all the same to you, I will not be rushing
To pick up the phone
When you call me just to say hello

And it started off as a phase
And it ended in an age

You can do all you want to try and help me
Even though it won’t work I appreciate it anyway
You say we ended amicably
But the coin had just one side, darling can’t you see

Well of course we’re always at the same party and when
We bump into each other I’m always the perfect gentleman
A smile and a wave
I say what is going on these days
But the smile is forced and the wave is fleeting
Not a true sign of the way I’m feeling
About you now, at the current time
Even though I seem fine

And it started off as a phase
And it ended in an age

You can do all you want to try and help me
Even though it won’t work I appreciate it anyway
You say we ended amicably
But the coin had just one side, darling can’t you see

Why won’t you try
It’s far too early to say goodbye
And as I leave it’s too late
You couldn’t hear me as I called out wait

You can do all you want to try and help me
Even though it won’t work I appreciate it anyway
You say we ended amicably
But the coin had just one side
You can do all you want to try and help me
Even though it won’t work I appreciate it anyway
You say we ended amicably
But the coin had just one side, darling can’t you see
You can do all you want to try and help me
Even though it won’t work I appreciate it anyway
You say we ended amicably
But the coin had just one side, darling can’t you see
Track Name: Liar
They say you are what you eat
If that’s true we are all food, vegetables and meat
But you are mostly your own words
Thanks to a healthy diet of lies, slander, and slurs

The truth does not roll easily
Of your tongue
But the lies flow like an avalanche
Down a mountain run

You’re a, you’re a
You’re a, you’re a
You’re a, you’re a
You’re a, you’re a liar

I gave my heart to her
She turned away only to stir
Trouble, oh yeah, trouble
She burst my only bubble

The truth does not flow easily
Off your tongue
But the lies flow like an avalanche
Down a mountain run

You’re a, you’re a
You’re a, you’re a
You’re a, you’re a
You’re a, you’re a liar

On the surface you seem kind and swell
But you eyes betray you, lies they say you tell
Untrained won’t hear the fears I felt
Will I tell the world, you know I shall

The truth does not flow easily
Off your tongue
But the lies flow like an avalanche
Down a mountain run

You’re a, you’re a
You’re a, you’re a
You’re a, you’re a
You’re a, you’re a liar
Track Name: Won't Last
She whips her hair back and forth
Not like that shitty song
But because that’s just what she thought
Would look good on the dance floor
And it does, and it does

You wish things could be more
Like they are in the films
You’re sick of opening and closing doors
You want just one to be yours
And you do, and you do

You know it should be easy
But yet still you feel queasy
Cause you know it won’t last
The end is coming fast

There’s a bounty on her head
Whoever claims it
Would not be lying if they ever said
She is as good as it gets
And she is, and she is

You know it should be easy
But yet still you feel queasy
Cause you know it won’t last
The end is coming fast

You know it should be easy
But yet still you feel queasy
Cause you know it won’t last
The end is coming fast
Track Name: Dancing On The Inside
You see me on the train, I seem like a regular guy
But on the train whether I’m happy or sad, doesn’t mean I’ll laugh or cry
I spoke to you last Thursday, my pet goldfish had just died
But I seemed like the happiest guy in the world
Do you know why
Do you know why

Cause I, I’m always dancing on the inside
But you, you’ve got me dancing on the outside
Cause I, I’m always dancing on the inside
But you, you’ve got me dancing on the outside

Wherever I go there’s always a beat in my head
But if I find my head is bopping I go slightly red
I know it’s hypocritical but I wish that instead
Everybody would just dance like they do
At home on their bed
On their bed

Cause I, I’m always dancing on the inside
But you, you’ve got me dancing on the outside
Cause I, I’m always dancing on the inside
But you, you’ve got me dancing on the outside

My mind is a dance floor baby,
You’re stuck in my head
And if my brain suddenly stopped dancing
I’d surely be dead

Cause I, I’m always dancing on the inside
But you, you’ve got me dancing on the outside
Cause I, I’m always dancing on the inside
But you, you’ve got me dancing on the outside
