Beverly 02:05
Beverly stay away from me You break my heart every time you leave Remember last Sunday you were gonna call me? Never did hear the phone Next time I see you You’re out dancing and you wanna take me home But remember that last time I saw you You really did make me cry You were standing with all your friends and You wouldn’t even poke me in the eye Beverly stay away from me You break my heart every time you leave Every time you talk to me I can’t think and I can’t breathe Beverly stay away from me You break my heart every time you leave You can’t take me home You can’t call my phone I’d rather be alone Reading crappy poems Beverly stay away from me You break my heart every time you leave Bah bah dah buh duh bah bah duhp buhp buhp

Kissing and telling just ain't right I heard you making fun of me the other night It's very easy I could find another boy Instead of one who treats me as his toy If that's the way it has to be A teddy bear should take the place of me I don't need this I don't need you I don't need all the silly childish things you do Ooh Ooh You just keep me hanging around Baby I'm tired You just keep me hanging around And I'm so cold Oooohhhhhhhh I'm walking all alone Oooohhhhhhhh I'm setting you free Oooohhhhhhhh You'll do fine without me Oooohhhhhhhh I saw you hangin' with your friends the other day I passed you by, you didn't look my way But that's alright I'll be okay We're better parted anyway Ooh Ooh You just keep me hanging around Baby I'm tired You just keep me hanging around And I'm so cold You just keep me hanging around You just keep me hanging around You just keep me hanging around You just keep me hanging around You just keep me hanging around You just keep me hanging around

I tried to call you Long since I saw you I feel so hollow Inside it's awful One lonely signal, oh I tried to call you, oh Last night I saw you Outside your window I tried to call you But I couldn't see in though A sad expression, oh I tried to call you, oh I thought we had a good thing, whew I want to feel better, whew I thought we had a good thing, whew So I tried and I tried and I tried I've been driven down to Sugarland baby (Sugarland baby) I've been waiting for you all the time (all the time) Waiting for the day you to be mine I'll try on Sunday Til I feel better Being nice is one thing But now there's no reason I thought you loved me, oh I tried to call you, oh

Gloria 02:20
All of my charms, all of my brains They ain't enough to keep him from Gloria All of my charms, all of my brains They Ain't enough to keep him from Gloria I'd Like to think I'm enough But I didn't study in France She's a step ahead, I'm a step behind Now she's walking with him He said he never met a girl like Gloria She speaks fluently the language of love Whatever the hell that means I'd like to think I'm enough I don't call what they have love Who knows what evil spell She has cast on him I'd like to think Oh I'm such a fool I'm enough I'm not enough But I I just can't prove my love Ain't it a shame I played a fool I, I, I loved you The chemistry set That we shared don't mean a thing A no a no no no no no no no

about

FORMATS: 7" Single [Limited Edition of 1000 copies] / Digital Single

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

"Beverly" is the new and incredible release of our idols from Austin. Recorded in the same sessions as their previous release with Eric Wofford in Cacophony Studios, these new tracks will be put out in the typical 50’s and 60’s format: on a vinyl single of four songs, a format that Elefant has always adored and vindicated. "Beverly" is the perfect teenage hymn, with the “pa-ra-pa-pa-pas” being one of the most addictive lines in ages and it also could be the perfect song to dance to on prom night. It’s probably the sharpest and most refined of their songs released to date, with some parts sounding like THE SUPREMES and LUCKY SOUL. "Kissing and Telling" starts out sounding like THE EARLY BROTHERS coming back to give us the gift of their best song ever, but all of a sudden, GIRLFRENDO rings out in the horizon, with their energetic, young and vibrant outbursts. "I Tried to Call You" (a cover of their friend’s band from Austin, BASIC LO-FI) sounds like THE WOULD-BE-GOODS acting out a detective story directed by Al Pacino, while "Gloria" goes hand in hand with BELLE & SEBASTIAN and THE ESSEX GREEN.

In conclusion, four songs which should put this band on the map as an example of the product of modernizing a traditional pop sound, basing it all on a hip, mega-vitamin project filled with ungraceful elegance and juvenile imagination. Not very complicated but a lot of song. Some call it inspiration.
