“Hot Pink Flares” is a 7-inch single by The Sour Notes, featuring an alternate B-side version of their song “Psychological Thriller”. It was released on the eve of a lengthy winter tour, December, 31, 2010 and included a bonus track of The Sour Notes covering the Beyoncé song “Halo”. It was recorded by Jared Boulanger and Chris Page earlier that year in a small, one-bedroom house surrounded by bamboo in the Hyde Park-area of Austin, TX. The recording introduces new band members Taylor Steinberg on drums, Kelly DeWitt on piano and Amarah Ulghani on bass (all who would later contribute to the “Last Looks” album) . It was mixed in Houston, TX by Steve Christensen at Sugarhill Studios (where the drums were also recorded to tape) and mastered by Joe LaPorta at The Lodge in Manhattan. Original cover art illustrated by Liz Molina and Scott Jennings.

about

the sour notes Austin, Texas

"Never short on hooks or ambition, The Sour Notes play brittle pop for star-crossed post-grads... On rising tides of lonesome guitars and glimmering synths, the band builds its postmillennial laments, occasionally nodding to Krautrock and frequently conceding to soundtrack-worthy mood."-Erik Adams, The Onion AV Club, www.avclub.com/artists/the-sour-notes,13870/ ... more

Track Name: Hot Pink Flares (7-inch version)
How quickly you confuse the thought
So cliche the conclusions are
Hot pink flares turn into a spark
Short-lived?
Hey, but the music goes on and on...
I've laid my tired head down one too many times now
This lonely little life's all you really deserve
This lonely little life's all you're ready to swim around
This lonely little life's all you're ready to run around
This lonely little life's all you really deserve
This lonely little life's all you know
It's the only life that you know
This lonely little life's all you're ready to swim around
Track Name: Psych Thrill (Alt. version)
All that I love I pretend you are not
All that I want I pretend we have got
All that I lost I pretend you have found
And all that it was, was pretend we found out
If only you’d say all that I wont
If only you’d stay I’ll never know how I’m alone
All that you saw I pretend to have thought
All that I’ve don’e I pretend we forgot
All that you had to pretend it’s about
Is all that we have to pretend we have now
Do we talk their lies through our wandered eyes
Did we cross that line and couldn’t turn back
If only you’d say all that I wont
If only you’d say all that I don’t
If only you’d say all that I wont
I’ll never know
