about

Situated somewhere between the southwest’s fiery yet notorious desert and the cool shores of Coney Island is where you’ll find the soundscape of “Vegas’ Child,” the first EP from Evan DeGirolamo and Emily Charash. The record spins a full-circle tale of the endless delights, and eventual violence, that come with seeking consolation and safety in another.

For being Evan DeGirolamo and Emily Charash's musical debut, their sound delivers a concisely crafted tone without reservation. The hints of jazzy piano when combined with heavy R&B synths create a uniquely dreamy, yet equally enigmatic feel to his tone, leaving you wanting more of this perplexing contradiction. Every second walks the line between giving into the darkness and floating away into space, and it’s all mediated by Evan’s hauntingly resonating vocals.

Track Name: Vegas' Child
[Verse 1]
“You're gonna be popular tonight” he says
I’m gonna be Vegas’ child he said
“Only for one night, kid it won’t be long”

“You're gonna get everybody so wild” he says
Now it’s time to walk the line again
“Oh you got that special kind of thing.
Have I seen your face on the silver screen?”

[Chorus]
Why do I go?
Indelible soul
I won’t make it outta here

[Verse 2]
Four red halls with four red lights
Let each one kill my tired eyes
I followed all my stars for you
I just chased all my stars for you

I thought I had a boy waitin’ back at home for me
But he was lost I was so naive
The whole horizons in my eyes
Ridin’ round this town, heavy headed high

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
You gimme tunnel vision, tunnel vision, tunnel vision all in my head
You gimme tunnel vision, tunnel vision, tunnel vision all in my mind
Sometimes I’d get it just right
Lie my head back, turn off the light
If I concentrate it in my head
Watchin’ myself from the ceiling

[Chorus Variation]
Why did I go?
Indelible soul
I won’t make it outta here
But I did make it outta here
Why’d I make it outta here?
I don’t know [x4}
Track Name: It Gets Dark
It Gets Dark
[Verse 1]
It gets dark
It gets goddamn dark
It gets dark in here a lot

And when it starts
And I come apart
I lock the doors, I say a prayer

And as I sit in the dark
I let it wrap its arms around
Till I’m completely covered up

[Chorus]
And It kills me, and I smile
It’s everything that keeps me feelin’ small

[Verse 2]
It gets dark
Your little car
Takes me to some number heaven

Anatomy angel
Dead rock star
Laughs with me in the ER

I never thought
You’d get that dark
You wanted me broken down, now look at what you done

[Chorus Variation]
And it kills me, and now life
Can never be as magic as before

[Bridge]
You're in it’s arms
You belong to him [x4]

[Closer]
My darkest hours
They ain't up
I’ve hurt till 3am and I gotta wait till dawn
Track Name: The Boardwalk (Interlude)
That subway train keeps movin’ back and forth
Can you hear the rumble as it goes by?
It reminds me of the D train
That could take me to the boardwalk anyday

I could've taken you there
If only you would let me
I could've taken you anywhere
God help me

Blue Hawaiians and pastel pink bikinis
And all the old men throw dice for keeps
It’s like walkin’ at night
And you’re feelin uneasy
Let yourself run wild

Lets go to the boardwalk
I can take you on the shore
Or we could smoke up on the beach
Either way I’m happy

But if I took you there
You’d see it, but not through my eyes
Not through my eyes

They say troublemakers and vagabonds
Always run into one another in the end
So I guess I’ll see you soon
I'll see you soon
Track Name: Inside My Dreams
[Verse 1]
If you want me you know where I’ll be
Flying down the highway and the backstreets
You can never sneak your way inside my dreams

So if you wanna come and find me
I’ll be dancin’ in the desert in the southwest heat
I’ll be thousands of miles away from you

I’m sorry if you cannot take it
But when I’m up dancing I’m Vegas’ favorite
And I’m happy I got away from you

[Chorus]
Drivin’ down the strip
The lights are all I’ve ever wished
Green neon in the sky
And it’s all that life can give
Inside my dreams

[Verse 2]
If you wanna come and ride with me
I’ll have to say “No, I’m sorry my king”
God knows you ain’t no Dallesandro

Now you sit there with your switchblade
Wondering what to do next
He really liked his hands around my neck

When someone wants the best of me
They get left with nothing
And I still got my head, or at least what’s left

[Chorus Variation]
Everything feels right
Like St. Mark's in summertime
Everything was worth it
And I don’t feel the blues no more
Inside my dreams

[Bridge]
You walked in circles around me
While I’m on the ground
You walked in circles around me
While I’m fadin’ out
You walked in circles around me
Not one dream around

[Outro]
Do your thing
Get clean
See the things you wanna see
Do your thing
Get Clean
Be the one you always dreamed
Do your thing
Only you can save yourself
Do your thing
Track Name: American Blood
[Verse 1]
American flags fading’ in the sun
'Cause God knows years of wrong
Can’t be undone

American blood is reaching
It’s boiling point of no return
Which reality tv star will save me now?

[Familiar Break]
But they couldn’t take us
Children in Vegas
Keep your head on the road, don’t look back now

[Verse 2]
Everybody's speedin’, fadin’ away
I tore up the wild side
And I wanna go home now

Dancin’ at the head of the highway
Swingin, this could be my last night
But I can't cry no more I need some sleep tonight

[Familiar Break]
Nobody can save us
The Devils’ in Vegas
Listen to him laughin’ “Ha, ha ha”

[Verse 3]
Midnight, channeling the moonlight
‘Cause honey we’re just kids
Look what this place did

Crazy, god you’re fuckin’ crazy
But I got you out my life
Move to the side kid ‘cause this world is mine tonight

[Familiar Break]
It’ll never make us
And I’m leavin Vegas
I’m flyin full force Ahhh

[Closer]
If I’m not among the stars
That means one of few things
Either the drugs got me, lost myself in some drink
Or I’m nearly out my mind
And until I know…
I’ll catch the sunbeams [x3]
You’ll catch em with me
I’ll catch the sunbeams [x3]
I’ll catch ‘em with you
