"Nate Wagner from Chapel Hill, NC. Ethereal emotional dreampop. Someone citing as influences names such as The Appleseed Cast, Slowdive, His Name Is Alive, Duster, Wild Nothing or Mineral in the same list and turning those into something both vaporous and intimate is obviously a precious discovery."

"These two songs are quite good and not at all what I expected for some reason… While these songs are ambient and spatial at that, they also channel some shoegaze, and by the second song you can also bring out that electronic synth feel."

Track Name: You'll Get By
don't worry about me
i'm on my feet again

in case that wasn't clear

from the way i sit, subdued
with my head cradled in my arms

(you'll get over her soon)

am i still missing you here?
isn't that my greatest fear?
you're still my greatest fear
darling, i wish you were here
Track Name: Twenty/Fourth
it's a big day
bigger than the 20
ringed around your heart

it's another anniversary
that i hang myself on
that i hang myself tightly to

another cycle and sequence
i thank your mother for
you're closer than you think
to whatever it is will make you
alive again
so happy birthday
