The Drywall Heels – On The Beach

”On The Beach” is the 3rd release from The Drywall Heels’ Heelin’ Good Series, a collection of their unreleased recordings.

The Drywall Heels is an indie power-pop outfit from Toronto consisting of Mike Ciani (vocals, rhythm guitar), Jesse Mirsky of Elsa, and The Seams (bass), Matthew Goldman of Elsa (lead guitar), and Shane Weir (drums). Inspired by an array of genres including 60s rock, 60s pop, new wave, punk, and post-punk. These lads like to keep things jangly, with a heavy focus on hook and harmony.

This song was written when I was still living at home, finished with school, working a part-time job, and had time to kill. It’s about being unsatisfied with your situation even if you’ve got lots of life to live, and time on your hands. I imagined what it might be like to be a rich kid who had everything at their disposal. At the end, the story came out the same as any. Heartbreak doesn’t care how much money you’ve got, in fact, the money might just make it worse.

The Drywall Heels

Lyrics:

So you walk ’round your town, it’s yours to discover
There’s a girl down the way, you made her your lover

On the beach, in a towel, by the pool every hour, in a world of your own sinking like you’re a cornerstone

and the lies passing by in the blink of an eye
In a world by yourself
On the beach

So they bought you a car, it’s yours for the summer
but the girl down the way, she found a new lover

On the beach, in a towel, by the pool every hour, in a world of your own sinking like you’re a cornerstone

and the lies passing by in the blink of an eye
In a world by yourself
On the beach

On the beach
