Give + Take 04:15
Breathe Let me steal a moment of your time darling Won’t hurt You’re safe in my bed tonight I know that it’s my mistake Drowning til my lungs break Get on your knees Say please Now it starts to break Break away over me (Break me, take me) Stay Let me take just one night of your love darling Hold me Bring my heart into you I know that it’s my mistake Drowning til my lungs break Get on your knees Say please Now it starts to break Break away over me (Break me, take me)

Engine 04:04
These boys they think that I'm easy Like they don't gotta try hard to please me Like I'm not out of their league already This goddess got the body Tick tock don't got all day Male privilege come my way That's right get down to the engine Down with the friction Don't try to be strategic Head down want you to lick Inconsiderate? I don't give a shit I don't give a shit That's right get down to the engine Down with the friction Don't make me wait (What I came here for) You give I take (What we bargained for) That's right get down to the engine Down with the friction Next time I won't be so nice Make you sing for supper Prove it's your only true vice That's my kind of lover Straight shooter, smooth talker Come closer, wanna show ya That's right get down to the engine Down with the friction Don't make me wait (What I came here for) You give I take (What we bargained for)

Intersect 05:05
Slide on over Wanna see you up close Run for cover Cause I love you the most Come closer Don’t be a stranger All kinds of people Walking the line Two points crossing Intertwined He don’t know He don’t know I’m waiting He don’t know what’s next Here comes the collision No time for decisions Good things come to those who crash Hey there honey You keep coming around What’s your hurry Taste a sweet duet We should slow down Life keeps on going No turning back Two words whispered On my neck He don’t know He don’t know I’m wanting He don’t know what’s next Here comes the collision No time for decisions Good things come to those who crash Come closer Don’t be a stranger

Wolves 03:35
You don't know a thing about me Won't hear a word I say Chivalry is dead with all these wolves after me Don't let the beast go hungry Don't answer to their call Feeding off the fallen Hoping for a miracle Moon was in it for the long haul God's sun preaching to the people Daughters screaming out freedom Stand up Stand up with me Middle of the night you're hunting Starving cause you're never full Hunger on your breath is burning Animal Moon was in it for the long haul God's sun preaching to the people Daughters screaming out freedom Stand up Stand up with me Wash the blood from your bed Hear the truth in what she said Stand up Stand up Wash the blood from your hair Quench the fever Stand up Stand up with me

See your future in my eyes My power reaches far and high For a penny you will see All the glories you could reap Unraveling your fascinations I could make your dreams come true But it’ll cost you Hold your horses let me see The pretty promise before me Now I’ve told you once before You’ll have to pay if you want more I can see what’s coming and I promise to tell Whisper all your secrets in the wishing well
7.
If the world is gonna shift At least I’m safe inside your arms With silent whispers on my lips A haven built in human form Together but we’re still alone Forever restless in our souls Hypocrites, fingertips Our own lovers’ apocalypse No one can say that we’re alone And if the world takes you away Left in the dust our memories Don’t cry my love don’t be afraid You’ll find me in the empty space Together but we’re still alone Forever restless in our souls Hypocrites, fingertips Our own lovers’ apocalypse No one can say that we’re alone Silence is fading Two lovers embracing Our hearts are breaking I won’t see you again

I don’t want to leave you out in the cold Out here alone I still see your footsteps Out in the snow So many years ago Safe, I want you safe Strange how we hide our fears away Our honesty Love is forever young And we grow Love is forever young And we grow old I don’t want to leave you out in the cold Out here alone

about

‘Give + Take’, Bassline Drift’s anticipated second full-length album, takes the listener through a euphonic narrative guided by exotically sensual subwoofer rhythms. Rachel “Sink” Lindsay’s hauntingly sultry vocals fuse perfectly with the diversity of other world-music elements, conveyed by producer Keli Marks throughout the 9 track composition. While effortlessly blending a unique array of genre-influences, the duo demonstrates focus on an overall narration; a wide range of fans will feel right at home with the musical synthesis of this LP released via Gravitas Recordings.

Opening on a warm, soft note, the title track showcases classical depth prior to a switch toward meticulous glitchiness via its energy-ramping bass drop. ‘Engine’ flaunts pop-music sensibilities peppered with a unique left-field twist, remaining true to Bassline Drift’s overall “world bass” sound. The vibe takes a colorful turn with ‘The Fortune Teller’; without diverging from the album’s storyline, the track readily floats into electro-gypsy territory. ‘Radha Ramana’ ft. Kirtaniyas continues the exotic vibe, channeling deep, soul shaking bass before ‘Forever Young’ wraps up the release on a somber note.
