about

"Phantom Party has done it again, and its follow-up single to the Stellar EP is a swooning, summery number that rivals the songs on the band's debut. It has to be one of my favorite debut bands of the year, but I do have a predilection to surf music via indie rock delivery. There is something downright cozy about Phantom Party's entire sound. The overt Morrissey sound of Joshua Capati's vocals are a little more subtle on this release, but they are still there. I like their self-description of "pop/post-surf/lo-fi" because it's damned accurate. "Derby Daze" has a stoned vibe about as it tells of the woe and loss, the trials and travails of a lad missing his love who has left him for a life in New York. As he is dying in the summer heat, he imagines his lost love waking up with someone else three thousand miles away. The gold, though is in the pre-chorus with "I'm way too stoned to say your name. I'm fucked up, but everything's okay. I'm okay." Everything is clearly not okay according to every other lyric of the song."

Track Name: Derby Daze
Morning comes, I'll be on the road.
While you'll be on a plane.
I'll be roaming on the west coast
While you'll be on broadway.

I'm way too stoned to say your name.
I'm fucked up, but everything's okay.
I'm okay.

And it's torture
When every conversation gets shorter.
I'm dying as the weather gets warmer.
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone.
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone.

You're waking up with someone else
In your studio apartment.
I passed out in a shitty hotel
Where insecurity's permanent.

When you took that one way trip to New York
You left my heart at your front porch.
Your front porch.

And it's torture
When every conversation gets shorter.
I'm dying as the weather gets warmer.
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone.
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone.

I guess I'll watch you on the big screen.
I'll see you, but you won't see me.
See me.

And it's torture
When every conversation gets shorter.
I'm dying as the weather gets warmer.
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone.
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone.

You're gonna miss me when Im gone.
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone.
When I'm gone,
When I'm gone,
When I'm gone,
When I'm gone,
When I'm gone,
When I'm gone,
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone.
