If you wanna be my lover Don't act like my mother 'Cause I just couldn't handle it But with the way things are goin' If the wine gets flowin' You'll just worry that I'll spill it I could be your savior but my best behavior is a little less than what you need So let's take what we're given Even a blue ribbon isn't satisfaction guaranteed I want you on my side, but not on my case I need you in my life, but not in my face I'm independent Don't need no codependency If you make an appointment, I'll be sure to keep it I'll be there at the time you state But if you need a shoulder for cryin' or weepin' Then you're just gonna have to wait When I need a pal, be it a guy or gal Then I might make a social call But when I'm alone I turn off my phone And I won't answer it at all I want you on my side, but not on my case I need you in my life, but not in my face I'm independent Don't need no codependency

If you say you can't find the time I'm gonna find it for ya If you're thinking that I won't mind Then this is gonna floor ya I know what you've done It's all over town I don't know how you think you'll live it down You won't hurt me again I'm not gonna let you And from this moment on I'm gonna try to forget you Did you think you were fooling me When it was in the open? Were you hoping I couldn't see That now our bond is broken I know what you've done It's all over town I don't know how you think you'll live it down You won't hurt me again I'm not gonna let you And from this moment on I'm gonna try to forget you Life is short and it's going faster I've got no time for courting disaster I'd thought you'd changed, now I know I'm wrong I've cut my losses and I'm moving along I know what you've done It's all over town I don't know how you think you'll live it down You won't hurt me again I'm not gonna let you And from this moment on I'm gonna try to forget you

about

This is the sixth release from The Unswept, and their second EP.

Following the success of 2019's critically-acclaimed "Minor Blemishes" LP, The Unswept returned to the studio following the Christmas break and recorded four new songs in four days.

This is a new phase UNSWEPT album, as they add much more power to the pop with a harder-edge, grittier, more rocking sound.

Part of the new sound comes from The Unswept setting aside their usual VOX AC-15 amplifiers for a classic from the USA!

"Liz got a new Fender Supersonic amp and we just fell in love with the sound," explains Charlie. "Warming up those tubes and plugging my Telecaster into it, it was the most glorious tone. There is definitely something to be said about plugging a Fender guitar into a Fender amp!"

In addition to his usual Ludwig Ringo kit, Ryan also played a Ludwig Vistalite kit he picked up at a used gear store.

"I actually went in there to get my Epiphone Casino adjusted, and was just browsing around when I saw the Vistalites," says Ryan. After playing them once I had to have them!"

New gear, new songs, and a new sound.
This is the The Unswept for 2020!

Following a hurriedly hushed-up pre-international incident, they now make their home in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, where they currently hold the tile of the city's best undiscovered gem of a power pop band.
