about

Gamma Bros Vol. II is a collection of songs written by three friends whose lives intersected seven years ago.

John Gudenzi and Will Sturgeon met each other in James Watson's freshman dorm room. The bros played college parties together, wrote music together, recorded in the same basements, and released homemade works over the next several years. Lo, riding the wave of time, they have washed upon different shores.

Longing for the collaboration that distance doesn't afford, the bros have reunited for the release of Gamma Bros Vol. II. The record features songs from upcoming solo releases by John, Will, and James.

As the bros assemble their own projects, they've met again here, at a new junction.

Track Name: Quantum Keys - Indian
i wanna be an indian
i wanna be wild again
i wanna feel the wind blow
i wanna take off my clothes

i wanna be an indian
i wanna be a feral kid
i wanna be more alone
i wanna ditch my cell phone

go where i wanna
and i slowly grow old
as i live out my days
where there are no real roads

(pick it up)

i wanna be an indian
i wanna be wild again
i wanna wear dirt cologne
i'm done with lame tv shows

i wanna be an indian
or lennon in 66
so i can get close and know
what it is to have a soul

go where i wanna
and i slowly grow old
as i live out my days
where there are no real roads

go where i wanna
and i slowly grow old
as i live out my days
where there are no real roads

they've got u lookin for ur head
they've got u lookin for the perfect conversation
they're lookin for ur favorite song
when i just wanted somethin we could sing along 2

i had 2 walk away
cuz everything u ever said seemed so exciting
i had 2 put my headphones on
cuz everything u ever said turned into nothing
i had you all wrong...

they've got me lookin for my head
i'm at the bus stop thinkin who the hell was jesus?
2 think that such a sacred son
might be some fiction of the same men
sellin us guns

way
cuz everything they ever said seemed so exciting
i had 2 put my headphones on
cuz everything they ever said turned into nothing
i had them all wrong...

"vibes"
"born in the grass"
"raised in the dirt..."

(vibes)
(vibes)
i like u
the way u are
(vibes)
with ur haircut
it's all U are
(vibes)
with the seat back
it's all U are
and that haircut

"...so i didn't know what do to i just sat there"
"vibes, vibes, vibes"
"vibes"

i had 2 walk away
cuz everything they ever said seemed so exciting
i had 2 put my headphones on
i had them all wrong

"james that was beautiful"
Track Name: brightener - Going Nowhere
Turn another page
Write myself into a sleep again
Words begin to fade
Blue turns into grey
I drift into my head

I get lost out there
In my own dreaming
Flowing overtones when I start thinking
Of you

going nowhere

Color back again
My mind flooded with old thoughts of you
You've been gone for years
You suddenly appear
So tell me where you've been

You were la la la
So much potential
But you've become a different person
Where's your answer
Cuz now you're

going nowhere
Track Name: Quantum Keys - I'm Not
I’ve had too much in my head,

Wondering what I should do next

Won’t try to be who –

I could be more like myself

Even though I’m very strange

Won’t try to be who –

Who? La da da

Not, I’m not

Sometimes I’m a bug who keeps beat

I’m an animal who screams

Won't try to be who –

I’m not

I only want to be me

But sometimes it’s hard to see

Won’t try to be who

Who? La da da

I’m not
Track Name: James Pratley Watson - Googely Eyes
you could never offer enough
i want you always
you're crazy and you're crooked as fuck
i want you always

googely eyes

take me to the springs in the east
where we can take our clothes off
the west is such an ugly disease
let's take our clothes off

googely eyes
Track Name: Quantum Keys - Strong People
Do do do do do 0 o

Help little kids step out of the front door

Watch them grow up nice and smart, done their chores

You want some time to clear your mind for sure

You want some time to be who you once were

Feel Alright

You can do it, you’re strong people

Do do do do do 0 o

I know it’s tough to put your life on hold

And never know where tomorrow will go

You’re working late to pay off student loans

You’re working late to pay for broken bones

Feel Alright

You can do it, you’re strong people

Do do do do do 0 o

Keep in tune, make some moves

Do do do do do 0 o
Track Name: brightener - Filters
I've been thinking I am worse off wishing
And then I told you so
Speak then regret, that's the best chance I'll get
And I guess I take chances with you

I should have just left instead
Took a walk back to my door
But at the edge of your bed
You hang your head
And throw your flowers at me, again
Throw your flowers at me

Filters turn off, I don't know where to speak
That's stuff I never learned
I'd rather just hang my head
On your shoulder, solid bone
And maybe my words won't drip slowly
Off my tongue and maybe I won't mean it this time

Maybe I won't mean it this time
You're covered in blankets
And you won't stop crying
Would you tell me to get out

I could be true
I could be free if
You were no one
Listen to me

I could be true
I could be free if
You were no one
Listen to me!
Track Name: James Pratley Watson - I'm Sorry
everyday's a complicated waste of time
comin up with reasons not 2 go outside
"well, i've tried!"

and though i know
i'm good enough
i'll never feel
quite good enough

i know, i know, enough's enough
i know, i know i... i'm sorry
i know, i know, enough's enough
i know, i know i... i'm sorry

every now and then i'm told 2 be myself
every one around they seem 2 be themselves
but i lie

and though i know
i'm here and now
i'll never feel
quite here and now

i know, i know, enough's enough
i know, i know i... i'm sorry
i know, i know, enough's enough
i know, i know i... i'm sorry

i know, i know, enough's enough
i know, i know i should shutup
i know, i know, enough's enough
i know, i know...

i'm sorry
i'm sorry
i'm sorry
i'm sorry
Track Name: brightener - Remote
In the script
that you've got
in your hands
Do I come out alive?

With a flick
and a nod
of your head
Will my body survive?

Like a life remote
Does a life connote
A man and a mind or both
My remote control


And our days
are not separate affairs
Is it me in these eyes?

If I'm lost
will you maybe pretend
To control from inside?


Like a life remote
Does a life connote
A man and a mind or both
My remote control


In the script
that you've got
in your hands
Do I come out alive?
