about

Boo City’s first EP release AnchorTown features five polished gems wrought from the underbelly of the “Ocean State” they call their home. Diving into a sea of styles, these songs will keep you swaying to classic soul and rock arrangements, heavy bass lines, poignant lyrics, and stirring horn performances. This 5 song collection presents some truly magical and unheard material along with original tracks that were featured as remixes on their previous ‘mixtape’ album Midnight Folklore. There is a raw and emotional tenderness throughout these songs, evoking hope, sincerity, defeat and defiance all at once. Giving a nod to the sounds that inspire them, Boo City stays original; they are multifarious rebels who stay true to their music, the city of Providence RI, and the salty pirates that dwell in its port.

Track Name: Long Gone
Since you left me you seem so happy now
I wanna be happy for you
but the truth is girl I feel so crappy now
cause woman, I still adore you
And it may seem like I'm doing all right
Trying to keep my smile looking warm and bright
Well you look so cute I just cannot refute
when your free falling baby I'm your parachute
And I'll catch you lady so I can say
"I hope you come back to me one of these days"

Our love is gone, Yes it's long gone
I just can't hold on, anymore
all of these sad songs are pouring out of my heart
without your love, I'm so unsure

I get so cold and lonely
without you to hold at night
If I could only hold and have you in my life

Our love is gone, Yes it's long gone
I just can't go on, anymore
all of these sad songs are pouring out of my heart
without your love, I'm so unsure

I go to sleep in the night time with you on my mind
when the morning comes girl your still on my mind
Won't you come home now, I can't take it
who's lookin' in your eyes girl who's seeing you naked
I can't control my mind these thoughts are driving me crazy
why ain't you with me, why ain't you still my baby

Our love is gone, Yes it's long gone
I just can't go on, anymore
all of these sad songs are pouring out of my heart
without your love, I'm so unsure
Track Name: You Ain't Ready
I don't fight for love
I won't fight for you
You ain't ready man
I don't need that kind of bruise
I don't fight for love, I ain't got that kind of time
You ain't ready man, you ain't ready to be mine
You ain't ready

He says he likes my pace, my peace. My spine.
He picks me like a grape, I'm tastin' like red red wine.
We go into a pace that cannot be defined. Oh lord, his hand's up on my waste, I do not decline.
Yah see I've seen that face before
You wanna purchase what your heart can't afford.
Naw, see your heart just can't afford

Chorus

He came over to me, bags full packed 
He said he's leavin' and he ain't comin' back
Something about those pale blues, leads me to think that shit ain't true
I'm smellin' somethin' funny and it's comin' offa you(woo)
Yea, see I've seen that face before, you wanna purchase what your heart can't afford
No, see your heart just can't afford
Track Name: Don't Deny Me
You can't love me like you used to
No you can't care how you once did
and I didn't mean to loose you love of mine
Your building that tall wall up so that I can not get in
I guess I can not blame you, no I can't lie

And it's hard to keep your gaurd up
when your trying to fortify
with minerals you started to take in
And you see me catch that train ride
to come and see you once again
just to look into your eyes and be denied


Don't deny me
Stand beside me
Why don' t you try me
Don't be so cold
My heart is cryin'
As I watch you leavin'
Is there nothing I can say, to bring you home

You can take my love for granted, you can take my love for fun
But you can not take away what has been done
All those moments you were lost and you had no where to run
Straight into my arms, you would come

When your heart was wrought in pieces, with a needle i did mend
To let you know you'd always have a friend
What you started to get over is the fight I can not win
Why don't you open up your doors and let me in
Track Name: What's Your Deal
What's your deal

I see your body standin' around
Actin' like your too cool to be here
Eyes planted, starin' at the ground, like a stoned soldier

Sets a rage in me
It's a storm, at this point, I'm wonderin' should I take your hand?
Will you help me start a fire?
I wonder

What's Your deal

I'm so beamed out
Put your needle on my record, turn
Let's make the roof on this mutha' burn down

Oh baby wars are being taught, and love is being violated
So I say, lively up yourselves
Let it go on
This is an old revolution
Don't look back
I wonder
Track Name: Sweetness
Is it Comin on down now
Comin on through
Said you like to hear it
And that's when I told you

All the chains are broken now
I give my heart straight back to you
tryin to take it slowly so you can get to know me

Your mind is like an ocean
I got lost in the tide
I'm a driftin bottle now
with the message stuck inside

I'm hopin' that you find me
somewhere on your shore
Won't you pick me up and read me
Put me in your story

Sweetness, With your soft caress
Child won't you undress
Down to your spiritual best

Your the finest
Well excuse me Miss
I think that your designed for me,
I was made for your loneliness

It was overstated blatant
How I feel for you
Turn my words into a seasoning
You cooked into your soup

And all those letters you tasted
Why don't you sing them back to me
If there was something wrong replace it
with something true, with sincerity

is it comin on down now
Comin on through
Said you like to hear it,
Well I like to hear it too
