about

Sparked from the disbanding of San Diego’s ILYA in 2015, Warsaw is a four piece comprised of Demetrius Antuña and John Mattos (both formerly of ILYA) along with Rebecca Antuña and Lance LaFave of KATA. Warsaw has taken a few elements from both of these bands, but have wholly defined and refined a sound all of their own. With a much more straightforward approach to song structures yet maintaining a unique dark, sexy and sinister sound with an almost cinematic mood.

With their first release, a self-titled Ep comprised of 6 tracks, Warsaw covers the gamut of dark moods. Starting it off with the smooth, smoke-filled room vibe of Shadows (which the band also has a music video for), to the upbeat and dancy synth-laden Machines, to the uber-gothic organ driven Haven. Then you start to hear hints of their other bands KATA and ILYA in the doom pop, Marrow, and the dreamy soundscape, Stranger. The closing track is a reprise of Haven, taking a more emotive approach, stripping it down to a Fender Rhodes allowing Rebecca’s voice to take the forefront.

Track Name: SHADOWS
Tear a hole in the harness of your mind
Let the light shine down on your disguise

I’ll follow you (you can’t hide), to the end of time
I’ll follow you (come stay with me), to the end of the line

There’s only one way this will work out right
We’ll hide in the shadows and wait for the sun to rise

I’ll follow you (you can’t hide), to the end of time
I’ll follow you (come stay with me), to the end of the line

Tear a hole in the harness of your mind
Let the light shine down on your disguise
Waiting for the sun rise
We’ll hide in the shadows of the night
Track Name: MACHINES
Forging letters out of grails
Rewrite the future, with my mind

We will magnify
Machines that make us blind

These walls we climb are defined
By these machines, by their design

We will magnify
Machines that make us blind
These walls we climb, have been defined

Nowhere innocence remains
Underneath we hide the shame

These machines must be burned
Burn these machines
Track Name: MARROW
If I couldn’t get you, out of my head
Then I wouldn’t let you, into my heart

Into the darkness we will fall

Defining the places, finding your thoughts
It’s time to set this place on fire
Pray for forgiveness, pray with your heart
Pray for forgiveness, pray in the dark

Into the darkness we will fall
Into the darkness we will pray
Track Name: STRANGER
There's a stranger hiding in my head
It haunts me while I'm awake, haunting me everyday
