    We welcome the third chapter in Summer Flake’s brooding guitar pop trilogy!

    Recorded between studios and home, ‘Seasons Change’ sees the return of audio engineers Geoffrey O’Connor (The Crayon Fields, Sly Hats) and Evelyn Ida Morris (Pikelet), James Mannix returns on drums and Antony Bourmas on bass.

    ‘Seasons Change’ sees Steph Crase consider ideas of self-identity, movement, and the indiscriminate yet deeply personal sense of yearning for growth. Following an organic, non-curated writing process, it was only with hindsight that Crase was able to realise the inter-connectedness of the themes present within the record, saying “I thought all the songs were such separate, free-standing, very different ideas. I’m slow to write, and usually just play with one idea at a time. I didn’t realise until near the end of production how tightly connected and repetitive the themes and lyrics were.”

    Crase describes the album as having “more pace than my previous records - little flashes of optimism, upbeat moments, but still simmering with anxiety and panic, and the wobbling uncertain desire for change.

    Produced during a 2 year period of personal, political and societal turbulence, 'Seasons Change' marks a point of timely personal introspection, looking backwards moving forwards. The recording process was marred by creative and personal struggles. Crase says "we rehearsed and recorded in fits and starts and long long pauses. So many plans were shredded and intentions inverted. I struggled with confidence, navigating how to realise my own vision, and connect with all the amazing creative people around me".

    The new album 'Seasons Change' is lovingly delivered with the realisation that in the creative process you have to sometimes throw process and planning out the window. 'Seasons Change' tells a human story, one we all exist in together.

    ‘Seasons Change’, the third record from Summer Flake, will be released to the world via Rice Is Nice on August 30th.

Track Name: Mind Reader
I’m not a mind reader
But I’m picking up your psychic pain
Even though I’m not a mind reader
I hear everything you won't say

I see you got hours to burn
But not a minute for me today

Even though I’m no timekeeper
I feel every second slipping away

Monday to Sunday’s my merry-go-round
Can’t look over my shoulder with my head in the sand
Sunday to Monday’s a blink and you're dead
Until then babe you'd better get out of my head

I can’t breathe

Said I’m not a mind reader
But I’m picking up your psychic pain
Even though I’m not a mind reader
I’m seeing things that I can't explain

They say ‘sleep soundly in the dark’
But you’ve gotta move into the light, into the light
Into the light of day

Even though I’m no mind reader
I know something isn’t right here

Is that a cloud on your face when I see you again?
Can’t run around the corner with my feet in cement
Dirty glass, broken tiles and an unmade bed
So loud now baby better get out of my head

I can’t breathe
Track Name: In The Dark
I’m not quick with big decisions
I’m not good late night at the bar
I’ve got piles of dirty dishes
Apologies only get ya so far

Ohhh in the dark
If the tide gets too close can you build a raft?
Not everyone knows
When it’s time to go

I was searching for your weakness
Intentionally stepping on your toes
Pouring water on my own mattress
Tiny holes in all your favourite clothes

Ohhh in the dark
If the dawn seems too far can you make your own spark?
Not everyone knows
When it’s time to go
Track Name: Hand In The Fire
Where can I turn it off?
Where can I lay my head?
When people say
That girl’s insane
That she’s to blame
What she been saying

Where can I pull the plug?
Where can I hang my neck?
You built my maze
Give the crowd a wave
When the sun beats down
It burns my face

I’m reaching out
Put my hand in the fire
I’m reaching out
For someone to shine a light on
I’m reaching out
For a sign in the wire
I’m reaching out
Put my hand in the fire

And I walk home after dark
And I go through the park after midnight
And I go to my girlfriend’s place of work
And have a cig or a drink if I have a thirst

No one’s gonna tell me what to do
No one’s gonna sell me what to say
No one’s gonna shout me out their car
No one’s gonna say how close how far how close how far how close how far how close how far

Now I’m reaching out
Put my hand in the fire
Now I’m reaching out
For someone to shine a light on
Now I’m reaching out
For a sign in the wire
Now I’m reaching out
Put my hand in the fire
