about

hardcopies of the 7" available here:
www.say-10.com/store/greatapes7/

Insert hype-up descriptors here. Plain and simple, Great Apes are a new punk band from San Francisco. Minimalism reigns. Play it fast, play it loud, and make it stick. While we all have been or are in an array of more complex projects, this band is founded on pop-sensible simplicity and the notion that music, much like a bio, is often at its finest when it’s spit out intensely, with concision and honesty.

In December of 2011 we recorded seven songs at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA. The songs are being split out across three 7"s in the spring of 2012. Labels include Say-10, All-In Vinyl, Mission Social Club, and one more to be announced shortly. What you'll find here are streaming versions of one song from each of the upcoming releases.

Track Name: Sam's Song
Sam says he don't need no home / said he found himself by staying moving / the routine and comfort gave him a bruising / alone and unknown he found it soothing / get out get out get out / or you'll die waiting / you're filling the norm you're life is vacant / get out get out get out / or you'll die waiting / you're filling the norm you're suffocating / on the frozen plains outside of Montreal / deadlocked suburban sprawl / he heard himself in the feedback's call / got in the van and left it all / raise the foreign sun from late night beers / five lives in thirty years / abandon dull culture's snare / for horizon's wealth / and a memory shared
Track Name: It's a Trans' World
waking up all blurry brained / I sublet these bones / these eyes are windows / but this ain't a home / identity divide / in a prison skin / I call it inborn / they call it sin / self-hatred bleeds out / from the target practice aim / ostracized and demonized / I slow implode with shame / it's not cosmetic / it goes down through the roots / if they bury me it won't stop the rising truth / your moral compass spins / bending on itself / when the hate comes gnawing you snap at someone else / they wanna take my voice / they wanna make my choice / it's just natural / it's a trans' world / they wanna smother me / with their insecurities / but girls will be boys / and boys will be girls /
Track Name: Detonator
I sat around all day doing nothing / it felt like shit / lately it's your speciality / you seem to thrive on it / the guitar for the remote / and all the parties for the couch / you turned into a silent ghost / we never see you out / it's not a change / it's a funeral / invisible is a synonym / for your settling / for your giving in / adulthood ain't an antonym / for creativity / and all of your friends / I wanna be your instigator / I wanna be your detonator / I'm not saying that you shouldn't slow down / but you should moderate / it ain't living if you ain't moving / if you don't make mistakes / your hand on the remote / and all your words buried in the couch / you turned into a silent ghost / we never see you out / it's not a change / it's a funeral / invisible is a synonym / for your settling / for your giving in / adulthood ain't an antonym / for creativity / and all of your friends / I wanna be your instigator / I wanna be your detonator /
