Since then, the band has become a studio only project and has just finished recording their first album. "The Falling Sound" is the first of many Rotting Apples albums and showcases the band's more psychedelic/ poppy side, while never shying away from their rock roots. ... more

Track Name: "The Day I Grew So Old" (single)
Words resolve in company
Defined in mind, they're buried in
A world devoid of self-esteem
The day I would begin

Spin waking, holes in the eyes of a world in bed
Hands shaking, crumble in what I know but never said

A second time to blow off steam
The heads all read the news aloud
A narrow mind, they're burning clean
The day I was so proud

Remind me what it was I walked out of on the way
Store bought dreams, cooked in a summer blind and thrown away

So it begins that I always feel strange
Never remind me what I wouldn't change
In a transition, a ghost on its way
Steps in a corner, all I wanted to say

Erasing, burned in the back of roads we fell down on
It won't seem easy to fix notions now that we're gone

Wait behind the walls, they sing
Arrest the feelings that you hold
I want to know what silence brings
The day I grew so old
Track Name: "Desire" (b-side)
It may be the only way to breathe
Inside of you
Treasure lost inside your broken speech

From empty hours
Caught in an open tease

Buried in the yard beneath the trees
It rains again
Movement in the darkness calls to me

From empty hours
Caught in an open tease

And in the forest, running through the leaves
I could see you fading into me
A record of the animal torn deep
Whispered fingers dancing while you sleep

From empty hours
Caught in an open tease
