about

Wilkes Oswald Miami, Florida

4 dudes in Miami formed a band in 2009 called Wilkes Oswald. Influenced individually and collectively by acts such as The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Tame Impala, Muse, Daft Punk, and Kanye West.

No two live shows by Wilkes Oswald have ever been the same; they get off on the art of spontaneous, improvised sequences in their live shows; sometimes completely improvising a new song on the spot.

Track Name: These Things
Girl, you've been on my mind
For too long, for too long
And tonight I'm gonna have myself a drink
I'll try to forget these things.
Oh these things

You thought that we could skip by the pond and be like
Your mom and dad would walk us down but here's life

But tonight, there's just something new
Cherry blossom, you don't have a clue
Those wide hips, those pretty lips
I've been having dreams
All those nights with me, I can't sleep
Your scent is lingering

You thought that we could skip by the pond and be like
Your mom and dad would walk us down but here's life

Ooh you got me going down
Ooh you got me turning upside down

You're such a bad girl
Track Name: Southern Point
Come and meet me at the southern point
Water's clear, low tide, not a cloud in the sky
Feel the waves catch my bones again
Feel my body as my soul's parting

And you know it could be true
But it couldn't be true to you

Man in blue comes to talk to you
Always up to something new
But it's just a suit
Fool's may say we live in paradise
But it don't mean nothing
Unless you're around me

And you know it could be true
But it couldn't be true to you

Always getting closer
Just to drift away again
Thought I used to know her
In the end its all the same
Track Name: Dead Man Talking
Felt you board the train
Saw you down the drain
Higher up, lay 'em down
Take you out
She's not making a sound

Shit hit the stream
Felt like a scream
Play it down

Stay on the ground

There's no time to waste
Turn is mine to roll the dice
I see clear, crystal plane
I see wide, a vision of pain

Head roll like a hound
Change your mind
Lets go and run this town
Stop in your tracks

Stay on the ground
Track Name: Happy Birthday
Happy Birthday to you.
