about

The sophomore album from San Francisco pop/rock favorites HARBOURS. Led by songwriter MIGUEL ZELAYA, Harbours move easily through elements of classic pop, Americana, R&B and indie rock flavors. “Their love of the Zombies and the Kinks are well in tact....and certainly reflect the finest moments of '60s and '70s radio, but in no way could they ever be confined to mere homage territory"—San Francisco Bay Guardian. Going into the second album the Harbours were a well oiled live act having played countless shows over the course of a year. The core of the album was recorded over two major sessions as "live in the studio" as possible to try to capture the naturally layered sound of this particular Harbours line up. Notable tracks such as Situation, Old Formula, and No Souvenirs were recorded in one take. Limited edition vinyl-only pressing of 500 copies, includes a free download.

Track Name: Trap Door
Take a globe, spin it around in your hand
Thirty five countries that you have been to
Another nameless town can't come too soon for you
You spin it around, spin it around

Turn your back on the places you come from
You naturally you take all the money and run
Now you sit back in that fat ole' easy chair
And spin it around, spin it around

Pedigree's a word that applies to your living
Your Mama's name decides where you go walking
But naturally you've only been through the gardens
Where you spin around around, spin all around

You're talking all about the peace of the country
I'm the furthest thing from being interested
I'm going back to paved road and lights of the city
That's where I'll be found, where I'll be found

I don't want your trap door, trap door
I don't want your trap door, trap door
I don't want your trap door, trap door
I don't want your trap door, no more
All my friends, come running
'say where you been
Well honey I've been downtown
Waiting on and on

So take a globe and spin it around in your hand
The mean poor world dreams American
Grin and take everything that you can
And spend all you have, spend all you have
Spend all you have, spend all you have
Spend all you have, spend all you have

I don't want your trap door, trap door
I don't want your trap door, trap door
I don't want your trap door, trap door
I don't want your trap door, no more
All my friends, come running
'say where you been
Well honey I've been downtown
Waiting on and on
