about

Avant-garde rapper, Soarse Spoken, returns from a 2 year creative hiatus with a new, four track conceptual EP titled Pretty Dark Summer. This is the southern lyricists' latest effort after his last project, Starve the Hunger, released independently back in late 2012. Whereas Starve the Hunger, which was more of a gritty mixtape-style project with a slew of guest features including Stones Throws’ own Homeboy Sandman, Houston’s Fat Tony, ¡Mayday!’s own Wrekonize and Bernz as well as a multitude of other talented spitters, Pretty Dark Summer delivers something different by placing the Colombian born wordsmith behind the helm of a different ship and focusing on one specific subject: Heartbreak, in a more somber, downtempo tone

Borrowing recent production from British Producer Aches, exclusively for the video accompanied “Her (v2)”, and T. Hemingway’s remix of a Gold Panda track for “Reprise” covering two out of four of the songs on the EP, respectively, Soarse Spoken then also teams up with Producer/DJ Mike Deuce to round out the EP and put together an “audio diary” of heartbreak spanning a few consecutive Summers for the Miami emcee. Featuring Electro-dance duoAfrobeta on the title track, "Pretty Dark Summer", This EP promises the abstract style that 'Soarse' has come to be known for while also dealing with the recovery process of what it takes to bounce back from a couple of bad-ending relationships.

Track Name: Her (v2)
Verse 1:
I told her I would love her and then I left her in a room alone
I could fuck things up while being gone immune to all the music known
Sorry I'm an asshole I only know
How to provide myself
My pops left at an early age
I never learned how to survive my hell
Treat her right
Need her type
Beat her like the speakers might
Give her knowledge, eat her out
Don't be afraid she'll cheat around
If you got her then you got her ain't no way that she could see that rout
Take her to the mountain top make her someone you could speak about
Cause she's a beauty yeah
That mountain top there won't compare
And everything she's ever done was simply proof that she's a prayer
In disguise so I just lied and treated her like common folk
Knowing she was far from that
That's why my heart is kinda broke
and I spit this kind of dope
To let her know that I kind of hope
She'll be back one day for now I'm in this ship just trying to float
I packed my shit I'm trying to go
a different place while trying to cope
I'm miserable I miss her face
I'm laying here just dying to know

Verse 2:
Pretty dark summer when she left me all alone
July was brutal man it won't affect me write a poem
Tell the world I loved her and I left and I was wrong
And the day I let it go I'm gonna be a box of bones
I chose to land in Venus when Martians all I know
My heart was filled with arson
Let the harps sing call my hoe
I won't be coming home tonight I found someone to hold
And she believes in me
I gotta let somebody go
Track Name: Pretty Dark Summer Feat. Afrobeta
Cuci Amador:
Breathe. Stop…
Breathe. Stop…
Breathe. Stop…

You were holding me back
Controlling me, you…
were holding me back
and I could never go back to you…

Verse 1 (Soarse Spoken):
At first sight it was love,
and at second sight it was lust
at third sighting I'm gone
waiting for her give a fuck
but she never found the heart
her map never found that part of what
puts a soul together (yeah)
and puts us both forever
she was always oh so clever
but she could never figure out
how she always chose no better
when it came to picture a house
with us both living
those children
with no children
and tall ceilings
with no illing
and all villains
with jaws chilling
like awwww damn it!
Yeah, she could never understand it
and I underestimated that she could never help me plan it
man it felt so good to have her have my back
but when she turned her back it hurt
and I found way to handle that

Cuci Amador:
You were holding me back
Controlling me, you…
were holding me back
Controlling me, you…
were holding me back
Controlling me, you…
were holding me back
and I could never go back to you…

Verse 2 (Soarse Spoken):
So onward bound to see her face
I got there and no dinner plates
just arguing and fighting
like why is this kid all in her space?
wrote that bitch a poem
but she don't wanna call you home
she just wants to roam the planet
but goddamn it I'm alone
so I struggled and I fought
the thought of not having her at all
is all I need for the depression
to take me to the edge and throw me off
I fed her and I gifted her
or at least I hope he did
and this girl will be my white whale
yeah, i'm such a moby dick
but for now I'm lost so hopelessly
so yeah, I gotta focus
I'm still surviving in the open sea
and no other fish will notice
till I'm flying in a lotus
or I'm gliding in a duesenberg
just for her to catch a glimpse of me
surviving on this putrid earth

Cuci Amador:
(x2) You, you, you, you, you…
and I could never go back to you

You were holding me back
Controlling me, you…
were holding me back
Controlling me, you…
were holding me back
Controlling me, you…
were holding me back
and I could never go back to you…

(x2) You, you, you, you, you…
and I could never go back to you

She wanna know my name, I told her what is was and said
call by my government cause you and I, we gonna make the bed
sleep in it, wake up
get together, yeah, and make some bread
perfect partnership
and harmony where all these snakes are fed
so he's a slave
the evils know that they cant make a difference
and jesus saves
these devils know that we can't take it with us
so we decided that we'd survive
without a fuck given
and everyone can eat a dick if they don't fuck with 'em
same lies same truths saints fall
Same reason we don't talk now

The type of pain to right a single omen
the type of pain I use to write
a little simple poem with
open up my heart to you
it's hard to view my wrinkled wholeness
thinking about whether you think of me
so think of me
drinking around thinking of things to be
so sing with me
I'm gonna live the way that things should be
so sync with me
and we can fly together so simply
so meant to be
psych

Track Name: Reprise
Verse 1:
Still time ticks
my mind's still playing mind tricks
of me painting in her eyelids
While I'm swaying in her islands
I've been…. missing her
and my vision's blurred
listen close to the earth
and give my heart permission to burn
here we go…
(yeah) In a world of immaterial
you would've been the perfect picture
you gotta fucking hear me though
And everything I said has stayed true
I never mentioned that I played you
Cause I will always be the wolf
and you will always be my prey boo

Verse 2:
She's in a definitive mood
She's making her mind up to finish the room
taking her time to diminish the truth
Then turning around to finish her food
She's a panther in venus
What happened between us has ended now
She's a Gangster it seems that what happened
the scene a disaster her friends in town
And i talk and procrastinate
After we broke up I bought her a ring
if that ring would've made it
the things that I've stated are trimmed…
the ring never made it
forget all the cadence that made this song
Brush the past off with playfulness
play with the fact that I stayed this long
gotta Don Bailey those chicks
Drinking Don and Baileys das it
living the life giving them twice the fix
my charm made that sick
I'm here… I'm stating that shit
She's in my arms staying that way
She's in the kitchen baking that dish
She’s in the bedroom taking that dick
hey
she’s in the lab working those hips
hitting the books working that chip
I'm on the phone cursing that bitch
next minute I'm gone and Begging that bitch stay
I'm lost thinking of which way
I'm making that passion work
no way, I'm thinking that's risk-ay
so I'm taking the fastest hearse
I'm gone
