about

Re:stored is the 4th release and 3rd full length album by Reunionunion comprised of the duo Patrick Savage and Adam Watkins. Re:stored comes on the heals of last falls contemplation piece Siempre. This album sees the duo expand upon and refine their version of pop music through excursions in psychedelia, dream-pop, shoegaze, electronica and even hints of post-punk. Drawing on these influences Reunionunion have created a record that is rooted in the here and now, but also timeless. Re:stored has sounds of redemption alongside those of despair presented in a manner that empowers the listener to seek truth, honesty, kindness and love. In these dark times it seems fitting to harness that energy into something creative, something powerful and something beautiful. Welcome to Re:stored!

about

Reunionunion New York

Adam and Patrick met in Canterbury, England in 1999 while studying art at the Kent Institute of Art & Design and bonded over a mutual love of music and practically all the same records.

Adam recorded blueprints of songs and ideas in St. Louis, and then sent them to Patrick. They interpreted/reinterpreted/reimagined and translated their ideas into the songs that now exist.

Track Name: Woodlands
We pictured many things
a sitcom life and a future filled with living dreams
but we're not there yet
and it could be something that we never get
We need to take pause
and focus on everything that we've
We don't know whats ahead
but one look behind shows us what's not

So please don't go
There's so many things left for us to see
So please don't go
without me

We have a tendency
to want more
more than we'd ever need
But can't we just provide
and still have what we really want on the side
We love the solitude
The independent, self reliant attitude
We're not an island
I just drift further from your hand

So please don't go
There's so many things left for us to see
So please don't go without me
There's room to grow and to be the people we always said we would be
so please don't go without me
Track Name: Packs
We're losing face
We're losing sleep
We've made some promises, we couldn't keep
We've changed our names
Re wrote the past
Stood up on pedestals, that couldn't last
We've praised false gods
Lived lives of sin
Played childish games yeah, we couldn't win
We sold some views
No one could use
We sold our souls, we sold our souls

We've made mistakes here, yeah we know it
but we know that we can change
And life is strange
but somethings need to change

We gave up thing's
We made a choice
We bit our tongues yeah
to have a voice
We sang your tune
Marched to your beat
The nicest people that, you'd ever meet
Gave into needs
Gave into thirst
Laid waste to everything
and now we're cursed
Howl at the moon
Nothing's too soon
We sold our souls, We sold our souls

We've made mistakes here, yeah we know it
but we know that we can change
And life is strange
but somethings need to change
Track Name: Den
We stay inside to feel alive, and distracted
The steady drip, we're losing grip
We're too complacent
We stand in line, most of the time
You want yours, but I need mine

There's a few things that we need to survive
So we feel alive, We'll feel alive
We're always waiting for something to arrive
so we'll feel alive, We feel alive

We've become numb, to everyone
and what's important
They sell your brand, now secondhand
We sit here patient
We stand in line, most of the time
You want yours, but I need mine

There's a few things that we need to survive
So we feel alive, We'll feel alive
We're always waiting for something to arrive
so we'll feel alive, We feel alive
Track Name: Cracked
The winds came howling across the mountains
it's cold, it's so cold

You just stepped out
To get some air
You closed your eyes for a minute
and forgot who you were
You woke up in a strange place
You must have walked for miles
No signs of life anywhere,
Except for distant fires
The sun was long gone
Moonlight brought you to a stream
You looked at your reflection
bu saw a face you'd never seen
The trees began to hold you
as you fell into their arms
Does anyone even know you?

The winds came howling across the mountains
it's cold, it's so cold
Does anyone even know you?
Track Name: Vintage
The heart wants, The heart wants what it wants

Your breath on my shoulder
Your fingers intertwined with mine
We don't know where we're going
We just need to take our time
We need warmth
We need closure
We're scared of over exposure
We hold tight
We hold back
The real you peering through these cracks
I just want the real you back

The heart wants, The heart wants what it wants

I want to save your love, I want a savior
I want to save your love, I want to save you
Track Name: Fire
Every time I say you name
Every time I do
You change the way you sit and stare
You are rarely seen

I catch a glimpse of what could have been
I catch a glimpse of the state we're in

With such a train wreck you can't avert your eyes
Ever time I look at you

Every time I do
All these things I'd say to you
All these things I said I'd do
Track Name: Londonone
I heard every word you said
I remember your smile too
I've see all the movies you made
I remember you feeling down
I see your face gonna touch the ground

I picture myself within a void
I dream about you in celluloid
Unfinished scripts, we just avoid
I dream about you in celluloid

I feel we've been here before
I think this life is cruel
I believe in something more
Sounds like hymns in the atmosphere
Reaching out but it's hard to hear

I picture myself within a void
I dream about you in celluloid
Unfinished scripts, we just avoid
I dream about you in celluloid
Track Name: Syncup
Wounds without stitches
Cost and reward
It's better to live, than to die by the sword
Entitlement, entitles you to nothing more
I've only just met you were you like this before
Paperless papers, piled up in my room
We never got married, but I sure was the groom
The meanings the same
Just in a new font
The company gets, what the company wants

Who are you now? Do you feel the same?
Who are you now? Do you feel the same way?

I expect more from you
I expected more from you

Who are you now?
Track Name: Platelets
You're a broken time machine
You just got stuck in the past
You may not be the first to feel this way
God knows you won't be the last
Do you feel that this world was just made for you
and we're all an obstruction you just need to get through

Are we just destined to repeat the same mistakes

You say your open minded and inclusive
and that you don't think that way, Ok
but actions speak louder than words,
When you just look the other way
The platelets shift across the bottom of these oceans
We might not see it
but we feel it's subtle motions

Are we willing to do whatever it takes
Are we willing to fix it if it breaks
Are we just destined to repeat the same mistakes
Are we willing to do whatever it takes
Are we willing to fix when if it breaks
Are we just destined to repeat the same mistakes
