about

When I sat down to finish The Shivers, I ended up with a lot of songs. Not all of them fit the mood I was going for. The five "bonus" songs that were originally going to be extras on The Shivers ended up in "Just a Chill," the EP you are now listening to. I hope you enjoy them.

about

Ian Marquis Portland, Maine

My songs are tiny ecosystems: self-sustaining, self-contained, intricate, and densely layered. I'm captivated by found sound and immaculate production. I sample my own work. I chop up my guitars and create arrangements I could never have played. I treat my voice like an instrument, pushing and pulling it in otherworldly directions. I polish each track until, sonically, it feels like it sparkles. ... more

Track Name: That's Okay
Katy, don't you listen
To those awful things they say
'Cause Benny's such a little bitch
He wants to make you pay

He wants to see you on your knees
He says "that girl, she's such a tease"
But you know Benny never liked you anyway
And that's okay

Katy, what's the matter
Don't you think you're worth the while?
'Cause you're the only girl
In this goddamn place that could
Ever make me smile

You know they only kick you
When they see you're getting down
But Benny's never been a good shot anyway
And that's okay

Let it out, let it in
Let's begin

Katy, don't you listen
To those awful things they say
'Cause Benny's such a little bitch
He wants to make you pay

You need to think about yourself
'Cause you are always thinkin'
About somebody else
But you know, Katy
They don't matter anyway
And that's okay
Track Name: Give It Up (Morning After Mix)
She says I can't get it up
Long enough, just to please her
But the guy next door does the trick

She'd better give it up
Cause it's my turn to squeeze her
And I don't care
About some other guy's dick

It's a tragedy
Cause I don't wanna do this
But you give me no choice, my dear
I'm gonna give you up
Cause I don't want to need you
In the morning you ain't gonna be here

I left you out
By the curb with your suitcase
Only you were inside it, my dear

They're gonna pick you up
With the trash Monday morning
When he comes, you ain't gonna be here

And if the neighbors ask
Hey, what happened to your girlfriend?
I'll just tell 'em that you're
Out with your friends

That's not really true
Cause I know where you're off to
And you ain't coming back here again

I am harder than a rock
Who the hell are you to talk?
And fuck that guy who lives next door
The bastard went and made my girl a whore

She says I can't get it up
I've gotta give her up

She says I only get it up
Long enough, just to tease her
But the neighbor sees
Her through to the end

She'd better give it up
Cause it's my turn to please her
When she's gone
She ain't gonna come again

I am harder than a rock
Who the hell are you to talk?

She says I can't get it up
I've gotta give her up
