about

Oh, country roads and endless views, where would we be without you? The Sepia toned songwriting of Mts. & Tunnels is undeniably framed by this imagery. The sound is built with classic AM pop radio in mind. Vocal harmony and melodies seem to meld perfectly on songs like “Something in the light”. Then on the slightly more aggressive beat of “Car and Bus” you hear many of the same sensibilities but when front man Poage belts out the chorus he lets the listener know that underneath it all this is a band from the northwest that likes to rock!

With 8 songs on this debut ep ranging from a tires-on-the-beach sing along to a standing room only dive bar anthem, Mts. & Tunnels debuts their exciting music to the world this September. check their website for official CD release dates and more info www.mtsandtunnels.com

Track Name: Bring it on
Bring it on>

Perhaps you’re the type to fall in love all upon first sight
I will try to stay out of the way something don’t feel right
I did not want to loose my self and I did not want to swoon
something broke inside of me when the girl left the room

The end of the night is when the sun begins to rise
If i’m not mistaken I can see it in your eyes, see it in your eyes.

Bring it on, Bring it on if i can have you for just one song
I would be Happily willing to let you go.

Summer oh summer oh summer where have you been?
my whole life i’ve been waiting for you but I guess I never knew.
I still remember the night in my mind like it was yesterday
the moon and the stars and the light in your eyes and the song we started to play

Bring it on, Bring it on if i can have you for just one song
I would be Happily willing to let you go.

Even tho the sun’s about to rise don’t want this to end
I can play guitar for you if you’ve got a song to lend

I like hangin’ out but i’m afraid soon I must be gone
I can do a chorus and an outro to our song

Bring it on, Bring it on if i can have you for just one song
I would be happily willing to let you go.

The end of the night is when the sun begins to rise
If i’m not mistaken I can see it in your eyes
everyday life is gonna pull you by the arm
leave when you need to but this dock won’t do no harm
don’t let me twist your arm
but with you i feel alright
just waiting for the morning light.
Track Name: Car and Bus
Packing my bags
as I'm headed to the bus stop
got a couple of hours
to catch the plane
but its all good

Going to St. Louis
for four days of thunder
But i don't mind
because I heard it's really nice there
so she tells me. . .

Such a long way
Such a short time
Like Georgia, Atlanta
I've got you in my mind
Show me the gateway
The gateway to the west
I cant take the sun
I'll shut the window
to catch up on some rest.

I'll take a car and a bus and a train and an airplane
what ever I gotta do!
A car and a bus and a train and an airplane
what ever brings me to you.
Track Name: No one in the world
No one in the world can affect me
No one in the world can affect me like you
No one in the world can affect me like you do

No one that I know could a sway me
no one that i know could a sway me like you
No one that i know could a sway me like you do

Twisted as a noxious weed this love, love is going to grow
I hardly see my own two feet and I wanted you to know
Twisted as a noxious weed this love, love is going to grow
I hardly see my own two feet and I wanted you to know

No one that i know could offend me
No one that I know could offend me like you
No one that i know could offend me and you do

Knowing all you know would you do it?
Knowing all you know would yoo do it again?
Knowing all you know would you do it? Do it again?

Twisted as a noxious weed this love, love is going to grow
I hardly see my own two feet and I wanted you to know
Twisted as a noxious weed this love, love is going to grow
I hardly see my own two feet and I wanted you to know
Track Name: Oh so nice
I hate to back out of an obligation
But I'm so tired of all this frustration
We sat down at the pizzeria table
Centipede and Pac-man were esops fables
My heart was built strong like an Iron gate
Director used to hate me I was always late
He said You're a loose cannon you have been freaking me out
So I'm plugging my ears when you scream and you shout

Why is everybody here oh so nice? oh so nice oh so nice.
Why is everybody here oh so nice? oh so nice oh so nice.

Now that I'm here in the middle of the ocean
My skin is dry I've been drinking lotion
You can own a house
You can scratch my back
A personal opinion is something that you lack
No one likes to talk about what brings them down
We're all popping pain pills to eliminate our frowns
we're digging deep for the diamonds and gold
But my people in Harare already know

Why everybody here is oh so nice. Oh so nice oh so nice
Why everybody here is oh so nice. Oh so nice oh so nice
