about

The Bawdy Electric Montréal, Québec

The Bawdy Electric make raucous power pop with big, rollicking guitars, fiercely modern hooks, and words as carefully chosen as a first car. They call their sound “Power Pub”, but this is not your Dad's Dad Rock band. They can be mentioned in the same breath as Elvis Costello, The New Pornographers, Roxy Music, or Big Star's “Third”, so long as you take a big enough breath. ... more

Track Name: I'll Be Your Mountain
I saw the erosion of my jaw
Over time, as defined by a bone
I was looking lonely, brave and young
For a family, some land and a home

And I have had visions of a time
Where building ships, and busting lips is all I know
Oh I don’t need wealth or flattery
I just want to feel a little loved everywhere I go

You told me once that I was a hero
Well I’m not a hero
But I’ll be bold as bricks for you
All for you
All for you
But you said you needed a mountain
Well I’ll be your mountain
I’ll be your mountain

Don’t want to sink into the ocean
Don’t want to fade into the blue
So I will find myself a mountain
And get over it to you

No strife, I want nothing of your life
But I’ll be blue collar true all the same
I’ve got everything we need
A mortgage and my gorgeous family name

So try and break me, I am a castle
I am a brick wall
I will be bold as bricks for you
All for you,
Awful you
But you said you needed a mountain
Well I’ll be your mountain
I’ll be your mountain

Don’t want to sink into the ocean
Don’t want to fade into the blue
So I will find myself a mountain
And get over it to you

Don’t want to sink in to the ocean
Don’t want to fade into the sea
So I will make myself a mountain
So you cannot get over me
Track Name: Any Closer To The Day
You are a picture of yourself
Beautiful and broad shouldered
And I don't think I'm any closer to the day
Where I can sing a song and say your name

So I will take my tongue and bite it
I'll take my love unrequited
I'll let my dishes pile up in the sink and
Go see a man about a drink

I found my words upon the Atlantic
And you've got eyes as brown as beer
So excuse me if I get romantic
When the whites of your eyes disappear

I've been stitching up my clothes
Turning rags to riches
And I don't think I'm any closer to the day
I won't be stitching upon my stitches

So I'll take pride in all my resilience
I'll take a couple words and I'm gonna strive for brilliance
And while it never comes out like I need it to
I get a way with my words with you

But there are some that I'll never tell you
Cause they're as hard to say as to hear
So I'll get by on the jokes that I sell you
When the whites of your eyes disappear
