Frontwoman Greta Kline says of the Haunted Items project: “items themselves are harmless unless they are infused with some kind of energy. These items are haunted by fear, consumerism, commitment, love, loss, the list goes on…I had some of these songs stuck inside me, mostly because I wrote a lot of them for piano and didn’t know how to record them, even as demos. My friend Elia gifted me with 10 hours of recording time with Mark Yoshizumi, and this winter felt like the perfect opportunity to get these out of my system and haunt you with them instead. I have always been afraid of items being haunted, but when you think about it, every item is, right?”

Track Name: Dancing
Dancing like the answer to a question that I do not know the answer to
but maybe you dance like the answer to an ever-changing question
Orange sports car or religion
I put 40 on pump 6 and I drive
If you saw me you would probably die
Dancing like the answer to an ever-changing question
Whatever or nothing
I cry more times a day than you did in 5 years
You’ve bought more pairs of jeans than you ever shed tears
Track Name: Tunnel
Ask questions when you wonder
In the quick silence as we go under a bridge and the rain stops for just a second
It can feel like a lifetime if I let it
I’m having the time of my life each time that I look into your eyes
You look back at me, we really see each other, the scenery closed off by a tunnel
I’m pretending not to care that everything will go away, but it’s on my mind today
You acquire a new item every time you feel like crying
I used to keep it quiet, now I don’t mind it, I don’t feel like lying
And baby I got hair now that’s never even heard of you
