about

I wrote this EP during a really hard time for me.
All of the lyrics, the melodies and the guitar parts came beautifully natural and this is the most honest I have ever been in the music I have created.

I want to dedicate this whole release to my amazing girlfriend Kim.

All guitars and vocals done by Frazer Cassling,
Additional vocals on 'Pine Over' by Luke Rainsford.
All mixing and mastering done by Alex Edge at C2CLOCKUP Studios

There are loads of people I want to thank for this EP so i'll start here.

This goes out to everyone who has supported me in anyway, you are all amazing.

I want to thank all my best friends in my other projects Bathtub, Flatline and Liberate Me (Even though it's a fusion of the others) for inspiring me to do this. I would like to thank Jon Dyke and Anthony Lethbridge more specifically for late nights driving and listening to sad tunes.
I also want to thank all the promoters that have been positive about my bands and also my solo stuff. To name a few names I want to shout out Ryan Cornell of SYD, Arianna Corr and Lee Jackson of Faithful City shows.

Shouts are also due to my main man Luke Rainsford, Dru Lintott (Craterface), all the boys in Better Than Never, Alex Hyland (Proud Ember), Stranded, Splintered (Especially Jack for doing my video), Coast to Coast (Especially Alec for producing this EP), Crime & Punishment 2011, Junior, Dal Sagoo, Heroes Bar in Worcester and Jack Daniels,

Track Name: Dead In Winter
I don't wanna die in the winter,
I want the sun at my feet.
Bury me by the ocean,
let the waves crash over me.
If it seems like I'm not listening,
I'm in Greece or anywhere,
where the sun doesn't go down till about eight
and I'm not trapped inside my own brain.

I don't wanna talk about mental illness,
but this drink in my hand's a cry for help.
Track Name: Pine Over
I miss the ashtrays of foreign countries
the freedom of smoking on beaches and porches
the sun on my skin made the stress feel off
with the wind through the palm trees that made it home
I go back to that place when my mind gets dark
getting drunk by the poolside or in our room
felt more at home than I do months now on
I need that weather more than I need these lungs

I'm waiting for the best
please tell me what that is
you are the sun that glows
I need you more than you know

I know that soon this will be done
and I'll have nothing else to pine over
i'm too weak to hold you down
(i'm just too weak to hold you down)
I know that soon this will be done
and I'll have nothing else to pine over
I'm too weak to hold you now

Right now I'm the wind through you hair that disrupts
that look you spent hours working on.
Track Name: Hey
Hey
I hope you're sleeping fine
I didn't wanna die tonight cause I don't want you to move on
to another guy

cause I know how they'll love you
how could anyone resist you?
how could anyone tonight?
not when it's cold outside, don't wanna worry you.
Track Name: In Your Absence
Leaving for work before I lose it to Cardiff,
all I feel is the tempt of leaving Worcester behind me.
I could pack my things and run with it,
or I could soak in the misery all day.

Before I even had a bank card,
before I even had an email address,
wanna forget about the old times,
before I fucking hated myself.

But only in your absence,
I'm a stranger to wherever it is I call home.
But only in your absence,
I neglect the fear in my bones.

Tried to find a place in myself before I knew how to find you,
I tried to find a place in myself before I knew how to hide.
But only in your absence,
I'm a stranger to wherever it is I call home.
But only in your absence,
I neglect the fear in my bones.

Wasted,
Every fucking night.
Casual drinks with friends found me on the back end.
Of calming myself with Jack and Coke,
destroying my lungs with cigarette smoke,
I need to hate myself so I can be a better man than I was.

But only in your absence,
I'm a stranger to wherever it is I call home.
But only in your absence,
I neglect the fear in my bones.

In my bones.
Track Name: Palm Trees
I've been looking in headlights for you
hoping this car takes me off the road
and you'll find my body in the morning
watch the sunrise over the west midlands
take my name from Gilmour Crescent
burn my room down, scratch all the dust right off
I wanna move so far away from here
that the pills can't kill me quick enough

I wanna die
by the palm trees, by the sea.
