__kla On Audra’s third, a vitality emerges, the palette expands, a lighter feeling pervades the whole while ghosts of melancholy & futility still linger & crackle at the edges. Bret’s rich voice continues to be a gift to this world. Some songs beat with a sense of urgency—hard-hitting drums, throbbing bass, distorted guitars—while others create a tender space for reflection. “Life On This Planet” is a career high. The climactic “I’m not alright” on "Syd Barrett" provides catharsis for us all in 2020. Favorite track: What's Meant To Be.

okkibox I love Audra since I bought their amazing selftitled and first album in 2000. Great postpunk sound and probably one of the best bands of the postpunk revival! Favorite track: Syd Barrett.

Don’t ever let anyone tell you what to know Don’t ever let anyone tell you what to care about Cause you’ll feel like you’re 100 years old You’ll feel like you’re 100 years old Cause it’s about the time for that You used to shine like gold With hope in your eyes But your friends have let you down And there’s nothing left inside And you feel like you’re 100 years old You feel like you’re 100 years old Cause it’s about the time for that

Someone told me That it’s better to be no one Than to be yourself You’ll find out soon enough That everyone’s the same You’ve got to close your eyes At least we were young You’ve got to close your eyes At least we were young once I sat by and watched As you laid back down And with one flame The light went out And that was the end And I walked back home You’ve got to close your eyes At least we were young Everything changes when you grow up

What’s meant to be is meant to be Sometimes it’s so hard to feel anything It feels like I’m falling apart And I’m slowly breaking into pieces Take me away Last night I tried to let myself go It’s one bad dream after another And I’m wide awake for everyone Take me away What’s meant to be is meant to be My friends have all gone home Back to where they started from Sometimes I wish I’d start again But what’s meant to be is meant to be What’s meant to be is meant to be Take me away
4.
Tell me what made your eyes so blue The color of the curtain on the second floor Tell me why we’d always run and hide On the side of the house at the edge of the world I’ve seen it all disappear Tell me why the roof never ended When I tried to walk away again Tell me why we cry when no one’s around And then laugh it all away the next day The next day I’ve seen it all disappear They’ve left me here Where nothing shines Not even me I just can’t let go

He gets into a taxi for another trip To a place he’s already been A hundred times for the same reason I wonder when it’ll all end He gets out wearing a dress An unlikely choice to a record store But anything is possible In Jason’s world I’d see you in the hall Once in a while say hi And hear the same request Gliding out of your mouth Crossing the street in the morning In your own special way I’d wonder how people can go on And why the determination to live It’s been a while since the last sighting Rumor has it he might be dead Oh say it ain’t true, oh say it ain’t true No kid deserves that He should’ve been given a chance

Ocean 02:58
When I was young Listening to the sound Of the breaking glass On the concrete floor Hearing the screams And the shots mocking The weird birds in the trees So tall, they went in the sky Higher than the houses Higher than my friend, Down the street. ‘We’re not going anywhere,’ And I’d hear him say, ‘And we never will, we never will. We’ll grow old and we’ll die here.’ In the letter he said, ‘There’s nothing, Nothing left to say, I’ll never be anybody.’ I’ll never see the ocean I’ll never see me again

Syd Barrett 05:09
Until you feel nothing / Take a deep breath It says I’m all right / It says I’m okay What’s the use when you’re that young? Last night I almost stayed awake Almost afraid to look / Almost afraid to see Like Syd Barrett on a carousel I could see you in a dream But I can’t remember your name Can’t remember your name I don’t have a voice / So I drown You say I’m all right / You say I’m okay Once you’ve left you’re gone Last night I almost stayed away Almost afraid to look / Almost afraid to see What I’ve become Like Syd Barrett on a carousel I want to see you in a dream But I can’t remember your name Can’t remember your name But I can’t remember your name Can’t remember your name I’m not all right

about

Hard and soft, melodic and beautiful. Influenced by David Bowie, The Velvet Underground and Joy Division.

Everything Changes is the third album from Mesa, Arizona’s AUDRA. Recorded over 10 days during the summer of 2008, Everything Changes features 10 killer tracks produced by Grammy-nominee, Robb Vallier, and guest backing vocals from Robin Wilson of the Gin Blossoms.

Based out of Mesa, Arizona, Audra is Bret Helm (vocals, bass), Bart Helm (guitar, piano) and J. DeWolfe (drums, percussion). Audra broke out onto the national scene in 2000 when they signed with indie label, Projekt Records. After two well-received albums and well-over 300 live performances, the band decided to leave Projekt and go back to the ‘do-it-yourself’ approach that started their career in the mid-90s.

Much like other ‘family’ bands such as Oasis, The Black Crowes and Jesus & Mary Chain, Audra is fueled by the unique chemistry that is generated from brothers Bret and Bart Helm.
