about

Amarillo is the project of Melbourne duo Nick O'Mara and Jac Tonks. Singing songs and playing guitars acoustic and electric, this self-titled 6 track EP is their first offering.

Recorded at Dead on Sound at The Parlor in Preston, once a funeral home now a collaborative space for artists. The pair spent last winter happily locked away in a disused morgue recording their songs with engineer and friend Ryan Granger. The sound they’ve produced is a blend of pop harmonies, soaring lap steel, dark tremolo and slack tuned finger style guitar.

Track Name: Faces
Broken binding
Photo album
Yellow light
Faces that I know

Past the milk bar
On the corner
Barefoot summer
Faces that I know

Distant memories
Winding through me
Floating down
Faces that I know

Blinds closed but the light inside is on
Blind hope but baby you were gone
Now I'm driving alone
I'm driving alone

Leave this town ringing
Every bone aching
As I'm leaving faces that I know
Track Name: Firefly
Firefly
It's gonna take a while
It's gonna take a while
To ignite me

Firefly
It's gonna take a while
It's gonna take a while
To ignite me

Catch on fire
Wind me up
Jack in the box

Sometimes
I'm going cross eyed
I'm going cross eyed
Looking forward

Sometimes
I'm going cross eyed
I'm going cross eyed
Looking forward

Stay in line
Straighten ties
Ties that bind

Kill the sunlight
Get it out of my eyes
Kill the moonlight
Get it out of my mind

I find
A little quiet time
A little quiet time
Gonna save me

I find
A little quiet time
A little quiet time
Gonna save me

Stitch me up
Wrap it round
All safe and sound
Track Name: Run Rabbit Run
You were miles ahead
I was sleeping in my bed
Told you, you should go
But I told you to go slow

Driving in the dark
Watching old country go past
Feeling far away
Between the moon and milky way

Cast off your covers
Throw back the dawn
You'd better run rabbit run

Mighty wind through my window
It was rattling my bones
And up and down the hall
I'd forgotten how to talk

Treasure I once had
Let it slip right through my hand
Found it was again
Between the covers of my bed

Cast off your covers
Throw back the dawn
You'd better run rabbit run

Wandering by the shore
Watch the waves roll in once more
And roll on out again
But clouds they hand around my head

Cast off your covers
Throw back the dawn
You'd better run rabbit run

Cast off your covers
Throw back the dawn
Farewell lost lovers
And run rabbit run
Track Name: Swinging Low
Dark and quiet corners
In the place I saw you last
You were talking up the future
With your head stuck in your past
Now you're swinging low

You were listing off your enemies
Let them push against your will
And I was watching your soul float away
And you were talking at me still
Now you're swinging low

Walk the empty streets at dawn
Till your troubles fall away
At the bottom there's just broken glass
And a struggle to walk away
And it's hard to watch an old friend falling
Shifting shapes
But you'll bend it all until it breaks

Staring into spaces
And at the centre of it all
You've got nothing weighed or measured
So it goes before the fall
You were swinging low

You were chalking up your victories
Splashed against the wall
Locked in petty misery
You were preaching to them all
You were swinging low

Walk the empty streets at dawn
Till your troubles fall away
At the bottom there's just broken glass
And a struggle to walk away
And it's hard to watch an old friend falling
Shifting shapes
But you'll bend it all until it breaks

Don't let them catch you crying
From what you've seen
Big old storm clouds gather round now
And you're at sea

Don't let them catch you crying
From what you've seen
Big old storm clouds gather round now
And you're at sea
Track Name: Broken Borders
Rolling hills, rolling with the punches
City flats and Sunday lunches
Luminal moment in time
Was always yours not mine
And I'm not hanging around
To be one more of your vices

Weekend drives, blurry vision
Week night fights and television
Single moment in time
Was always on your mind
And I'm not hanging around
To be let in

Borders were broken as the dark crept in
We watched all the blood drain from the sky, you and I
And I was half thinking the room was so small and
I could see cracks for the first time

Faded memories of the city
Empty streets once were busy
You're on a long dark road
To places I don't know
Deepest reds are always pretty

Fear and freedom
Fear and freedom
Fearing nothing
Fearing nothing

Forwards and backwards and blue
Forwards and backwards with you
Track Name: Heel & Toe
Up and down
Dancing round
Stake your claim
And then take a bow

And I'm up and down
Waltzing round
Stake my claim
And then take my bow

We'll travel wide
Side by side
Crossing bridges set on fire
And we'll dosey doe
We're heel and toe
Regret this love if we let it go

Just supposing what will be
With daylight closing in on you and me

It's quiet now
Inside and out
As we wind our way t'ward the ocean
Push that boat out
Sail to higher ground
We've grown sea legs midst all the commotion
