about

Layered, ringing guitars accompany vocals filled with longing and desire, building to a lush, swirling climax and telling the story of one person's silent wish to be by your side.

"Measure You In Days" is the second release from Sophocles' latest project which takes inspiration from the 1941 masterpiece by Olivier Messiaen, "Quartet For The End Of Time."

lyrics

Unfazed by anything
Sure you're still untouchable
Quiet only for a time
I wanna move your fingers

Can’t hold my own
Pleased to see your other side
Think it over for a while
We’ll find a better way
Anything you can’t unwind I’ll carry away

Oh, It's the same Pacific sun
A kind of icon of your face
Why weigh the hours with me
When I could measure you in days

So wonderful
Shady like a sentinel
Close enough to smell you by
The sugar in your blood
Anything you can't unwind I'll carry away

Oh, It's the same Pacific sun
A kind of icon of your face
Why weigh the hours with me
When I could measure you in days

Finally overcome
Sure you’re still untouchable
Quiet only for a time

Oh, It's the same Pacific sun
A kind of icon of your face
Why weigh the hours with me
When I could measure you in days

SOPHOCLES Los Angeles, California

Sophocles' music has been described as “melancholy reverie rattled now and again by swelling dissonance” (Steve Smith). "Measure You In Days" is the second release from his latest project which takes inspiration from Olivier Messiaen's masterpiece, "Quartet For The End Of Time." It comes on the heels of his 2014 EP "Till The End, My Dear," which similarly riffed on Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring." ... more
