about

Drawing from an array of genres from pop to prog to shoe gaze, the young group brings to the public two songs both aggressive and beautiful. "The Taking" is both a testament to minimalist Indie Rock and a celebration of musicianship, wrapped in emotion. B-side "Rorschach" shows another side of that same approach.

about

Within Rust Vancouver, British Columbia

It's a unique kind of ethic that results in songs like “Rorschach”, with a clear ode to 90's Post Hardcore, and “The Taking” a Killers esque Indie track with a nod to Pink Floyd. In mixing such disparate genres as Progressive Rock and Post-hardcore, there’s a lot of room for error, but Within Rust winds these and more into a strange and accessible Indie Rock package. ... more

Track Name: The Taking
Walkin' these streets
Like we got some kind of life
My buddy's sliding on the ground
With a smoke, for a wife
We learned everything
That we'll need to know
You're growing up too fast
and I'm feeling so slow

Well the city and the shadows
They go hand in hand
you got a good job but
good luck paying' for the land
And the people aren't so pretty
but they sure put up a front
and leave me feeling stupid
Yeah they treat ya like a-

Take us all
through all your weary proses
Stone the victim
and burn them with the roses

Tell me now
there's a light at the end
I used to feel so weightless
Now I'll never feel again

I know what's in my future
And I know what's in yours
I know who wins I know
I know who'll keep keeping score
And it won't be me cause
I'm busy paying dues
Can't you see I'm terrified
That's why I'm haunting you
Haunting you

Well I never felt comfortable
in my own skin
I don't like to tear it off
Get a glimpse of what's within
But anybody else, I wanna
Watch somebody die
I wanna hear their final wish
Lets talk about you and I

Take us all
through all your weary proses
Stone the victim
and burn them with the roses

Tell me now
there's a light at the end
I used to feel so weightless
Now I'll never feel again
Track Name: Rorschach
Welcome to the last lone refuge
Of all those that are proved
To be alive

Secure the angel's tidings
Hold fast and take a look inside
We are chosen dancers
Cast adrift so make this last

Cause everyone knows
The world is round
And I'll drift forever
Until I'm found
If that's your aim

Relaxed thoughts
Tempt the notion
The events
Set in motion
I'll change hearts
And change my mind
If I do ever
have the time

Cause everyone knows
The world is round
And I'll drift forever
Until I'm found

Yeah

There's a star
Callin' my name
An apparition
Across Aurora's flame
And it shines so bright
It burns

Rorschach
Is that you
Cleave the dog's head
Right in two

This world
Is not for you
And it certainly
Well it's not
It's not for me
