Melanie Stangl It’s a gorgeous, dreamy EP that balances catchy pop sensibilities with engrossing layers of sound, creative twists in both melody and instrumental effects, and mesmerizing, imaginative beats. It’s a fun, groovy soundtrack for dancing or driving that doesn’t shy away from lyrical dexterity or subtle, gradual builds. LOUIE is a cohesive, summery, blissed-out ride you’ll want to take over and over again. Favorite track: Light Out.

Track Name: When It's Night
Well tell me baby is that really all you think that you were made for? You sure? Cause this doesn’t add up. About a year ago you stood in front of all of us to make sure that you’d never pick it back up. We swore we’d find a way back while holding hands in the back of that ambulance. Take control of all the things that we once loved to share, loved to share, but then it closed up. Now I hear the sound of your voice in my sleep sometimes to make sure I’m okay. Baby, please come home. In the night we get tempted to cause commotion while knowing we wouldn’t do it in the light. It’s fine. I might. Just this one time you get carried away from feeling like everyone’s seeing what you tried to hide. Sleep tight tonight. We swore we’d find a way back while holding hands in the back of that ambulance. Take control of all the things that we once loved to share, loved to share, but then it closed up. Now I hear the sound of your voice in my sleep sometimes to make sure I’m okay. Baby, please come home. I’ll come to see you in the night.
Track Name: TRU
I feel like I'm on the outside of this room looking into what everyone else seems to connect on. I'm trying to feel that way and never just assume. But if I try to hard to understand then would I be would I be staying tru.
So Say what you want to say as long as you are tru.
I don't want to be bashful. To me it's natural. At times I don't fit in at times I really wanted to. I don't want to pretend now that there's no way out. So be who you want to be as long as you are tru.
And if we are who we say we are does it change depending on who we're facing at that time and place? Does it show when we're all alone. We always knew from black and white to the color of us being tru.
I don't want to be bashful. To me it's natural. At times I don't fit in at times I really wanted to. I don't want to pretend now that there's no way out. So be who you want to be as long as you are tru.
Track Name: Perspective
Oh why do we have to prove that we cannot lose, if life is just a game we play then who’s to say I’m facing you. If we look at how we separate ourselves...what if we became a team and tried to work our way to better things. And I know that you know we’ve fallen, fallen down. And I know that you know we’ve fallen, fallen down. But sometimes from down here I finally see clear as
everyone’s looking down. And I know it’s right to give back, give a chance for the lack of what others can find themselves. Well maybe we’re looking up now. So what do we make of it and should we be proud of it and can you stand back up if you have fallen. Take the time to make it work you can walk the line don’t let them hurt what you started all along when they’re hoping that you fall. And I know that you know we’ve fallen, fallen down. And I know that you know we’ve fallen, fallen down. But sometimes from down here I finally see clear as everyone’s looking down. And I know it’s right to give back, give a chance for the lack of what others can find
themselves. Well maybe we’re looking up now.
Track Name: Fake It Slow
There aint no sense in trying to tempt me, and there isn’t a reason to fall apart. I never want to say forever. Don’t let me be the one that’s breaking your heart. Oh, well I don’t really want to get back together. Oh, and I don’t want this to start. Oh, we can work it out I’ll change for the better. Oh, I think we just grew apart. And I just want to get you to know, but you’re holding me close. And I don’t want to give you my heart, but you won’t let it go. Some people want it all, but I can’t cause I can’t give it back, give it back. Well I don’t need someone to talk to, and I don’t want a break unless it’s broke off. I know inside your head it’s all true. You wouldn’t be the first to let your mind play tricks on you. Oh, well I don’t really want to get back together. Oh, and I don’t want this to start. Oh, we can work it our I’ll change for the better. Oh, I think we just grew apart. And I just want to get you to know, but you’re holding me close. And I don’t want to give you my heart, but you won’t let it go. Some people want it all, but I can’t cause I can’t give it back, give it back. I could find a better way to say it, but I don’t care. The joy I get after removing myself from you is just not fair. And I just want to get you to know, but you’re holding me close. And I don’t want to give you my heart, but you won’t let it go. Some people want it all, but I can’t cause I can’t give it back, give it back. And I just want to get you to know, but you’re holding me close. And I don’t want to give you my heart, but you won’t let it go. Some people want it all, but I can’t cause I can’t give it back, give it back.
Track Name: Light Out
Out of line is a sign indicating that you’re broken. To others you’re just wasting time trying to find something better you can show them. And it’s hard to find a way when they’re watching your every move, listening to what you say. Well you know the way now so don’t put your light out. In search for a purpose to show that you’re worth it and we know you are.

Well you’ll be just fine with your open mind. It only hurts when you fight it cause everything can’t be kept inside. And it’s hard to find a way when they’re watching your every move listening to what you say. Well you know the way now so don’t put your light out. In search for a purpose to show that you’re worth it and we know you are.

Well you know the way now so don’t put your light out. In search for a purpose to show that you’re worth it and we know you are.
