ABOUT THE ALBUM
________________________

Eagle and Talon's 'In Manila' EP covers a lot of new ground for the duo. The exotic ride begins with the aquatic organ instrumental "I Want Everything." Title track "In Manila" (feat. guest vocals by comedian/musician Reggie Watts) crashes in on the reverie with a propulsive beat, packing infectious hooks into a quasi-Caribbean party. "Ruen Pair" envisions the duo as Enya on Halloween, while "Modified My Knife" brings back their art-damaged guitar sound. The EP closes with "For The Bond," a jazz-disco anthem.

eagle and talon Los Angeles, California

LA-based experimental rock duo Eagle and Talon have been confusing people since their formation. Splicing angular guitars and intricate rhythms with casio and scraps of musical theater, Kim and Alice Talon forge a sound that makes you wonder whether you’re being pet by a kitten or mauled by a lynx. ... more

Track Name: In Manila
LYRICS:

If I didn’t get injuries I could still fight but the cuts have slowed me down have made the floors stick / got five ways to catch a cold had plenty of times to knock me out

Bet you didn’t mean it bet you’ve got three times more than me 'cause time is racing time is erasing I bet you’d go half way up my hand / you’re an oil blot you never come out kept the fruits still all night they like to go bad
Track Name: Ruen Pair
LYRICS:

Caught up on the fences of the dove tongue-tied it's not my way to give but this one's known me since the day I started / You've got it figured out you've gotta con the guards just to guard it, you got the saint's damage you know we'll all be safe again

It's writhing it's waiting for nothing alone it's a forever it's hidden it can't come back it's sordid it's got great alliance it never is honest it never comes back come back

I could sell the graves I could start and start again I've got the current air but I could salt it so it lasts / You've got it figured out you've gotta con the guards just to guard it, you got the saint's damage you know we'll all be safe again

It's writhing it's waiting for nothing alone it's a forever it's hidden it can't come back it's sordid it's got great alliance it never is honest it never comes back come back
Track Name: Modified My Knife
LYRICS:

When you come crying you make your claim make your gains make your cane / creaking in my pocket creaking in your pocket creep in my back pocket / freeze grays to graze outside all sane all groves all grave riding! sailing! waiting, waiting for my little boots little boots to save my life / back hand leader modified modified my knife
Track Name: For The Bond
LYRICS:

Trash days we’re trash times for a trash day trash days we’re trash times go out again / waited for those hot times to call gonna beat up gonna beat up those hot times go to sleep it’s true wake up it’s true it’s all night it’s all night

Never tried your hand at dry never tried your hand at grace never tried your hand at blame never tried your hand at outside never tried your hand at dye never tried your hand at books never tried your hand at air never tried your hand at tried

Take some of my things because I’ve got enough wear this I got this for you take some of my things because I’ve got enough wear this I got this stuff for you / I mean I mean don’t come along that’s what I, I mean I mean don’t come along at all I mean I mean don’t come along I mean don’t come

Never tried your hand at dry never tried your hand at grace never tried your hand at blame never tried your hand at outside never tried your hand at dye never tried your hand at books never tried your hand at air never tried your hand at tried

That’s all it takes to take those husbands back that’s all it takes to take those husbands back
