about

Quiet Stars Durham, North Carolina

Formed in 2011, Quiet Stars' sound leans toward the indie/post rock side of the spectrum, with resonant, swirling guitars, classic synths, and lively rhythm section – all with an underlying sense of urgency. The band's dynamic sound is reminiscent of such contemporaries as Built to Spill, Pedro the Lion, Codeine, Drop Nineteens, and Bedhead. ... more

Track Name: Horizon
why can't you be here when you're with me?
why can't you see the growing spans?
what I'm asking isn't much
but you're still making other plans

are you weak? are you weary?
are you breaking down on me?
I'm not who or what I mean to be
are you breaking down on me?

I can't get settled though I know the cost
I'm not surprised you're losing patience
what you're asking isn't much
but I'm resigned to this distance

are you weak? are you weary?
are you breaking down on me?
I'm not who or what I mean to be
are you breaking down on me?

i think I'm better at this than you
Track Name: Downside of Honesty
you're most fragile in your evening clothes
most tender when you just can't lose
how far can we take this before it starts to break us?

this is what you wanted
so why are you still crying?
this is what you wanted
so why'd you quit trying?
I think we need some space to get back what you need
cause I can't help but hurt you
it's the downside of honesty

you're most disarming when you're quick to strike
most engaging when we're least alike
how far can we take this before it starts to break us?

this is what you wanted
so why are you still crying?
this is what you wanted
so why'd you quit trying?
I think we need some space to get back what you need
cause I can't help but hurt you
it's the downside of honesty

so this is what it feels like to win?
