about

Best described as Trip Electro Indie Rock, Wear Me Out highlights the best of where Down The Lees has gone, and back again. Recorded at Off White House Studios by LL Schultz with drums recorded by Rick Welin at Clark Drive Studios, the 3 song EP amalgamates the searing sounds of wailing guitars and pulsating electronic beats that speak loudly about sex, regret and hope. Beginning with the title track, Wear Me Out, the song breathes life into lust and desire. Temper Mapping touches on regret while the last song, Brave, ends with a triumphant call to be courageous. Clocking in under 13 mins, the EP packs an emotional punch that everyone with a heart can relate to.

As with previous releases, Wear Me Out features guest musicians, each providing a unique flavour to the songs, elevating them to new heights. Jessie Robertson (Low Spin/Dating Myself) created thick, groovy bass lines that anchored the tracks while Swann Barrat lent a hand by co-producing and layering synth lines and specifically beat-boxing on the title track. Shawn Penner (Mother Mother, Hannah Georgas) co-produced and mixed the EP at District 4 Studios, giving it a dynamic punch that pierces through to the very last note.

Track Name: Wear Me Out
Try me out
I’ll be good
Wrap your arms around
I’ll be good
Strong in the night, I will come
Bearing all to find the one
It’s not too late
I can see in your eyes
Taking you by surprise
Your muscles ache
The temperatures rising
Pulsing bodies sweat
Feel the rhythm, it’s rising
Making you forget
Wear me out
I’ll be good
Wrap your arms around
I’ll be good
Wear me out
I’ll be good
Track Name: Temper Mapping
I have a reason for you to be alone
You wait desperately by the phone
Stuck on what we haven’t done
No you can’t even play for fun
Now you’re alone
I see the pain in your eyes
Maybe this family tree isn’t cleverly disguised
I see you tumbling down
I feel you tumbling down
We used to walk on egg shells and lie
And tell how everything is fine
Stuck on what is to be done
No we can’t even play for fun
Now you’re alone
I feel you tumbling down
I see you tumbling down
The hillside on the way to us
I feel you tumbling down
The hillside on the way to us
Track Name: Brave
You think you can save this with your tears
Forsaking all the pain inside
We’ll make up and then we’ll fade awayWe’ll make up and then we’ll fade away
You’ll make it up, I’ll take it the wrong way
And maybe I’ll deserve the time waiting
I see you’re wild, out with the crowd
I see her on your neck
You make a great asshole
You want to roll
Now you’re a star and your wondering
Why I don’t wait around
But I’ll make it on my own
Now that you’re erased
I’ll make it on my own
Now I’m brave
Now I’m brave
