Down 03:25
It's you I trust I won't get down on your love Just the two of us Looking down from above
2.
Rare 04:33
Isn't it so rare when I Get to be there on time Isn't it so rare when I Say that I'm not scared to fly And if you get scared Then I swear that I'll stay around We're still in the air But I swear that we're still on the ground Isn't is so rare Visiting somewhere
3.
So Dead 02:18 video
I feel like a ghost Where I make my home I never say a word I never look at her I'm so dead I feel alive I felt my way I found the taste Wide open space While I'm away I'm so dead I feel alive
4.
Word 02:15 video
Bright sunlight In my eyes I try To block out the day Thinking of what to say Then I held on tight Looked you right In your eye And then I felt so assured Although you didn't say a single word And you felt so assured Although I didn't say a word
5.
Sidewalk 03:26
I'm in charge of the sidewalk There will be no cars where I walk I'm in charge of the sidewalk And if you're looking for answers You should ride on the other side I'm in charge of where I walk So don't fuck around on the sidewalk I'm in charge of where I walk Unless you're looking for trouble You should ride on the other side
6.
Dark 04:38
Why don't we pick a spot in the park And take a shot in the dark We don't even need a shot in the arm To sleep non stop I want to feel you breathe in the dark And the beat of your heart You and I are just a piece of the stars They're all that we are In the dark Is all we are Maybe In the dark Is where we want to be
7.
Focus 04:05
I was standing in the foreground Feeling slightly out of focus I was lost in the moment I didn't know where to go I was standing in the open Feeling slightly out of focus And it felt like I was floating And I felt so alone
8.
Outside 04:23
Everybody's so excited Everybody's so divided Everything goes in cycles It gets hot outside Then we're not outside Then it's hot outside Then we're not outside
9.
Sunday morning Incandescent sky Candles in the evening Lights go out every night Silent morning Thick fluorescent lines Candles in the evening Lights go out every night Solid morning Incandescent sky Candles in the evening Lights go out every night

Perfect Midnight World:
And just like that, a late year entry into my favorite-albums-of-the-year list arrives. It’s been no secret that I’m a huge fan of the work that Tearjerker puts out there, but I was simply not prepared for how wonderful Rare sounded on the first listen. The second and third listens only further reinforced those feelings and now I’m onto obsessing over single tracks. The first of which happens to be the album closer, “Solid Morning”, and it’s a dust blown, western-dream-pop beauty that brings to mind Mojave 3 and Mazzy Star at their best. That’s right. At their best. Rare is that fucking good.

YVYNYL:
The bleaching action of distortion keeps this shoegaze beauty stipped clean and whitewashed. It’s a long inhale of smoke - a drag that lasts until the ashes fall from the tip.

Sounds Better With Reverb:
‘Rare’ has plenty of fuzzy guitars, distant vocals and swirling atmospherics but there are also strong melodies to hook you in. This isn’t just noise for the sake of it, the songs are strong and there’s enough variation to keep it interesting. Clearly all the effort has paid off.

BIRP:
...one of the strongest singles of the year. So brilliantly constructed that it's a struggle to find proper articulation for the personal connection. It's sustenance to late autumn. It's the song every good film needs as the credits queue. It's been on constant repeat for the last 5 hours.
