about

If I remember correctly, my first encounter with Trust Fund came on April 6, 2015, the result of a blog post by Heartbreaking Bravery. Trust Fund very quickly became an important part of my life. I was getting ready to leave long island for st. louis, and had just begun writing my own songs, uploading terrible demos to a bandcamp no one will ever find. Ellis' music and mentality, that of bringing friends together and singing about hope, regardless of what weird stuff we're encountering along the way, assured me that I already had everything I needed to achieved what I aspired to.

I am forever in debt to Ellis and Trust Fund, for allowing me to put out their penultimate album on my label, for inspiring me to write, and most importantly, for reminding me that the music doesn't matter, what matters is loving the people you make it with.

When asked how an apc song is written, I'll often respond that they're all just attempts at Trust Fund songs gone horribly wrong. So I guess here is one that, by nature, had to go right.

Track Name: reading the wrappers
your parents are sat in the car
they wondering what is the matter
and they are eating sweets
and reading the wrappers

and there is no one else around
the shale as grey as the weather
and you are crouching on the ground
for what seems like forever

and i'm sorry for running away
but they will be playing his records all day
and you turn to me baby and say:

"we can run on this beach for as long you need to
if that's what helps
we can kick every pebble into the sea
til there's nothing left
if that's what helps you deal with his death
but are you sure there's nothing else making you upset?"

to take the ferry harbour-bound
i guess that's where we were headed
with nonchalance it was announced
i guess it took me a second

and i am sprinting on the sand
like there's a thing i've forgotten
and i am windmilling my arms
guess it's a thing i do often

and i'm sorry for running away
but they will be playing his records all day
and you turn to me baby and say:

"we can run on this beach for as long you need to
if that's what helps
we can kick every pebble into the sea
til there's nothing left
if that's what helps you deal with his death
but are you sure there's nothing else making you upset?"

"we can talk about it, we can do whatever you need
baby my parents are happy just reading the wrappers, and i love you"
