Red Dress 02:51
Sail the night July oh-four Waves of bliss I never knew… Midnight lips, turn me round Fiery sky, drown my head I know, I’m furthest from the best You’re a bright star under duress I liked you best, dancing in a red dress Gazing lightly, but not at you Your lyric I never knew… Wishing on a dark star Spin my records on his decks… I ran to where you liked it best Someone else was under your dress Reigning a hateful sky of red mess I know, I’m furthest from the best You’re a bright star under duress I loved you best, dancing in a red dress

Not The Same 03:08
Turn the camera on yourself ‘Cause that’s all you see (and by the way…) A wandering, unsteady eye And a bitter glass of whiskey Calls back those lonely nights Where we found we’re not the same But you set me aflame Smooth silver points of light On the quiet breast of your sea Calls back those lonely nights Where we woke from a heavy dream Calls back those lonely nights Where we found we’re not the same With fumes of gasoline And the wicked curl of this world With fumes of gasoline Where we found we’re not the same With fumes of gasoline And the wicked curl of this world

What’s up ya bad mutha gonna slap ya on the hand…. Think you big trick, but you not a good man The skies grow dark with your evil plan Stupid got a head full of broken glass and rocks Use the city worker and the piss-off local cops The skies grow dark when you circle the block Creepy mother-f-in’ peepen’ Tom I caught you lookin’ at my girl uh-huh Nothing gonna stop ya till ya piss off the weight of the world, mmm hm It comes down hard It comes down hard ‘Cause everyday you wake up say “I’m gonna win…” “Gonna pull a fast one on poor old Mrs. Finn…” She just had a stroke, but she never learned to swim You just cost her about 500 bucks ‘Cause she’s got a car that’s up on blocks Nothings gonna stop ya till ya piss off the weight of the world, mmm hm It comes down hard It comes down hard It comes down It comes down
4.
Is that all you can do? Love me ‘till I’m black and blue But don’t turn your back when you look away I’m winded and I’m on the run Some say that love is free That’s messy chivalry ‘Cause no one can escape from this gravity It pulls us down through the floor You’re not the one who keeps me up tonight You’re not the one who lies awake You’re not the one who feels the gloom But you’re the reason I feel unloved I feel unloved Down south there was a ramblin’ bit of fuzz And the devil, who had eyes for you ‘Cause riddles come up in threes You’re not the one who keeps me up tonight You’re not the one who lies awake You’re not the one who feels the doom But you’re the reason I feel unloved You’re not the one who keeps me up tonight You’re not the one who loathes awake You’re not the one who feels the gloom But you’re the reason I feel unloved You’re not the one who keeps me up tonight You’re not the one who lies awake You’re not the one who fears the gloom But you’re the reason I feel unloved I feel unloved I feel unloved

Avocado 02:46
I was looking for evidence You broke my gheart You put it in the refrigerator It turned all black and mushy like an Avocado A VA CA DO It’s always on my mind I wanna get some You’re always on my mind I’m gonna get some GWAK! I was falling The Earth kept hitting me in the face I landed next to you my soft, sweet avocado A VA CA DO It’s always on my mind I wanna get some You’re always on my I wanna get some GWAK! GWAK! A VA CA DO
6.
Suicide Love 03:22
Suicide Love, when you’ve got nothing left to give Like Nero burning Rome The city’s on fire, but so were you Gonna turn you on Distant lights glowing red Suicide Love Your Suicide Love Your Suicide Love Suicide Love, you’re like lightning Strike my head Like a jagged line This night’s on fire, but so were you Gonna take you home Turn down the lights But what’s in your head? Suicide Love Suicide Love Your Suicide Love Darkness hums, sings for your spark Show you the way, the window to your heart You’re the star of our Suicide Love Suicide Love Suicide Love Suicide Love
7.
In late July, you decide to head out for the West Where fresh love blooms and darkness looms where the sun sets Her summer’s fall I don’t recall, or even stole your ring Just a taste of lips and face You laid there ‘till the Spring Where shadows buzz and sting… A pillow case across my face She couldn’t stand my lies With knife and hearse and lips burst She cursed on through the night 506 where ya got your kick Until things went awry Set up your feast; devour your beast ‘Cause ya want to slice my eyes Just to hear me say…. Ahhhh! Ahhhhh! Ahhhhh? Windows of hate and lock your fate Until things went awry Torrid beast devour your feast ‘Cause ya want to slice my eyes Just to hear me say… Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Ahhhhh? Change of pace and lost our faith The ugliness inside It’s gonna be a buzzy spring ‘Cause you can’t stand me ‘Cause you can’t stand me ‘Cause you can’t stand me

When I wake, when I sleep… I picture you looking at the rising sun Through the strands of a willow tree Through the ice that melts in the morning These pent up things that die in the light Maybe they’ll go away in the warmer sun? When you felt November’s touch pull you away I’ll sing this note ‘till you can fall in love Everyday, I stop and wonder… why I longed for you? Remember the day when you… stepped on me (And I dream of you walking) These pent up things that die in the light Maybe they’ll go away with the warmer sun? When you felt November’s touch pull you away I’ll sing this note ‘till you can fall in love These pent up things that die in the light Maybe they’ll go away with the warmer sun? When you felt November’s touch pull you away I’ll sing this note ‘till you can fall in love

The Sun 02:48
You live where it’s cold And the fish Don’t like the water Swimming in your sea Because the sun will kill us all Kill us all Because the sun will kill us all Let a thorn of red want loves dread You twinkling eye Is this the end… when I leave.? Because the sun will kill us all Kill us all Because the sun will kill us all Because the sun will kill us all Just want to wake up with you Spend the rest of my life with you Just want to wake up with you Spend the rest of my life with you Because the sun will kill us all Kill us all Because the sun will kill us all Just want to wake up with you Spend the rest of my life with you Just want to wake up…

Oh. You wander from the middle Till you know your seeds have unfold So what could you say to make things all right? You win, good bye, tonight’s your night Come. You’ll love me in the morning. Evening though you hate me right now. So what could you say to make things all right? You win, good bye, tonight’s your night So what could you say to make things all right? You win, good bye, tonight’s your night You win, don’t want to start a fight… So what could you say to make things all right? You win, good bye, tonight’s your night So what could you say to make things all right? You win, good bye, tonight’s your night…

about

"...it fills a longtime industry void where such efforts have been all but missing for too long now, it’s some of the best 2018 has so far produced." - Mindy McCall, No Depression

"The 10-track Volume was produced by North Carolina legend Mitch Easter (R.E.M., Pavement, Helium), and it displays a pretty comprehensive knowledge of the indie/college/whatever rock that’s come before it. “Avocado” is one of the standouts, and it finally answers the age-old question about what it would it sound like if the Pixies and King Missile (kids, ask your great-grandparents) jammed in the B-52s’ garage." - Magnet Magazine

"The Big Takeover premieres “Suicide Love”, a dreamier cut off the LP that flows with lush, bittersweet regret. Plush, spiraling guitar lines, rich synths, and scintillating cymbals crash wash over Garrigan’s drawn out vocal exclamations." - The Big Takeover

"...writing “Volume” was more of an escape than an act of catharsis." ; "Most of the songs on “Volume” do swing with a Cars-meets-B-52s-meets-Matthew Sweet kind of quirkiness. Famed N.C. producer Mitch Easter’s production adds a welcome layer of weirdness to the mix at times, whether it’s on Garrigan’s reverb-heavy vocals on “Avocado” or the shoegaze haze of “Suicide Love.” - The Charlotte Observer, Courtney Devores

"The Charlotte trio has completed their latest album Volume, ten punchy and emotional tunes that recall the snarky smarts and wiry grooves of new wave performers like Nick Lowe and Athens, Georgia's Pylon." - Creative Loafing Charlotte, Pat Moran

"If you seem to always be on a search for bands who come across sounding inspired and real, you're almost certain to get a major kick out of Volume. Played with true passion and style, these are songs that will inspire a whole new generation of underground pop/rock fanatics. Kickass cuts include "Red Dress," "Not the Same," "She Can't Stand Me," and "Tonight's Your Night." Recommended. Top pick."- Baby Sue

"There’s a deliberately uncomfortable, edgy vibe to the Eyebrows’ songs that will likely make the listener of a certain age think of the B-52’s (the silly, unhinged “Avocado”) crossed with Robert Fripp’s League of Gentlemen. Unlike the happy-face pose struck by far too many powerpop acts, this group has a slightly (but not too) menacing undertone to their musical approach. The lyrics hold up to scrutiny (they’re even printed on the inner sleeve!) and the trio rocks." - MusoScribe, Bill Kopp

"Volume, the debut release from Charlotte, NC trio The Eyebrows just might be one of the best albums released this year. From start to finish Volume drips with attitude, passion and swagger" - Step Inside This House

"Frontman Jay Garrigan has a strong set of pipes on him, and the music isn’t anything to sneeze at either, and finds itself somewhere between syrupy sweetness of Cheap Trick and the rugged alt-rock of Pixies." - New Noise, Tom Haugen

"Volume demonstrates The Eyebrows’ eclectic approach, eschewing a singular sound for a combination of styles rife with yummy retro flavors. This is an excellent album worth listening to over and over." - Blog Critics, Randall Radic (published several other places via syndication...) 

“THE EYEBROWS/Volume: Producer Mitch Easter dusts off the controls and takes this band back to the days when alt sounded vaguely like Byrds. In that pre-grunge element before angst ruled the roost, jangly guitars showed they never went out of style. When paired with edgy lyrics and the proper attitude, the mix reminds you what it is to be young. That’s the heady brew on tap here.” – Midwest Record

“The Eyebrows aren’t just some weird surfy band, they can really turn up the volume. The chorus has a dirty hard-rock sound that shows the band can you hit you on multiple
fronts.” – Surviving the Golden Age

"Charlotte's The Eyebrows announced their debut EP Volume available August 31 and delivered the single of dangerous entanglements with the grandiose Suicide Love" - Week in Pop

"‘Volume’ is a testament to creativity, experimentation, great lyrics and a distinctly cool voice (courtesy of Jay Garrigan). They take just as much influence from a band like the Pixies as they do from the great Southeast bands of the ‘80s (everyone from R.E.M. at their quirkiest to the dB’s). All crammed through their own distinctive musical filter. - Innocent Words Magazine & Records
