about

Inspired by Sarah Record's heyday with a touch of the shoegazing bliss of Creation and 4AD Records, Starry Eyed Cadet formed in San Francisco in the Spring of 2013. This Bay Area quintet is a mix of members from various backgrounds, from such established bands as Marine Life (Elefant Records) and The Parties (Rainbow Quartz), to Jazz and Brazilian Pop.

Having been long time friends and fellow indie music lovers, it wasn't until an impromptu jam session on an uneventful Sunday evening that brought the band together. Even though they identify themselves mostly as indie pop, the band's main intention is for every member to freely write and compose, regardless of any influence or style. With all band members as active songwriters and composers, they describe themselves as "all over the place" but remain glued together by everyone's similar sound sensibilities.

In 2014, they released their first demo single ‘On The Run’ on Bandcamp, which fortunately found its way to the ears of Roque Ruiz of Cloudberry Records, as well as played on Scotland's "Alan's Midweek Madhouse" and college radio KDVS in Sacramento, California, where it was well received. They eventually completed their debut self-titled EP in late 2014, where it caught the attention of Maz Hadid of NYC Popfest, and landed a spot on NYC Popfest 2015 lineup opening for indie pop legend and one of the band's initial inspirations, Club 8. A very special moment indeed for the band as they were proud to be part of such a prestigious music festival that features the best in new and classic indie pop.

After their performance at NYC Popfest, the band was introduced to Fastcut Records by fellow NYC Popfest performer and soon-to-be label mate Wallflower from Japan. Starry Eyed Cadet is to release their debut LP "Places We Don't Belong" in the summer of 2016.

Starry Eyed Cadet are Gil Castro (keyboard), Rex Padayhag (bass), Rob Uytingco (drums), Ron Songco (guitar), and Sally Jati (guitar). Everyone in the band has to sing at some point.

Track Name: Worlds Collide
Did you write the letter
I want something more
Take me to the places
That I’ve never been before

Feel the world begin to move
See the fading lights glow brighter again

We can close our eyes when we go down the slide
We can sail the seven seas
We can fill ourselves like a glutton for love
You and I while the worlds collide

Did you hear the stories
They’re banging at the door
Wailing mothers at their feet
Why does he ignore
Track Name: Pills
Wonder how much faster I could go
Wonder how much further down this road
Wonder where I would be tomorrow
I feel the wind blow
Everything seems slow
And this blue ride seems never ending

Watching the fireflies
Would I get to the end of the world before the sunrise
When everything gets bright
Would I get to forget and start over again

Wonder where I would be tomorrow
I feel the wind blow
Everything seems slow
And this blue ride seems never ending
Track Name: On The Run
Waiting for far too long
Places you don’t belong
Underneath the dusty piles
Way overdue to rise and shine

The dreams last night, they were real
There is no reason not to smile
On this endless spinning ground
Not gonna wait around to be found

Riding high on the reverie
Tiny wings are flying free
They can’t break me with sticks and stones
They can’t stop me I’m on the run

Come out here sleepyheads
Forget the comfort of your bed
Beautiful day ahead
No more demons, they’re all dead

The dreams last night they were real
There is no reason not to smile
Living on endless spinning ground
The whole world to play around

Riding high on the reverie
Tiny wings are flying free
They can’t break me with sticks and stones
They can’t stop me, I’m on the run

Riding high on the reverie
How much brighter tomorrow would be
They can’t break me with sticks and stones
They can’t stop me, I’m on the run
Track Name: Reaction
Here I go again
All wondering, wishing, cursing, screaming
This mad charade that I’ve been playing
Hello used to come so easy
Why should I refrain from what I’ve longed to say

That I think of you sometimes
Would you want me around
Is it my delusion

Here it goes again
My heart above my head
Wanting what it can’t attain (All these emotions I can’t explain)
Your eyes seem to search my soul
Would you want to know (Wish I could show you)
What I’ve longed to say

Do you think of me sometimes
Would you want me around
Is it my delusion
If only you could read my mind
I’ve been waiting all my life to see your reaction

Your crash and burns
Your laughs and yearns
Your falls and stalls
I know them all
My dearest friend (The one I hold)
My smile and pain (Keeps me afloat)
Should I leave them all behind to see your reaction
Just leave them all behind

Would you think of me sometime
Would you want me around
Is it my delusion
If only you could read my mind
I’ve been waiting all my life to see your reaction
(I’ve been waiting all my life)
To see your reaction
(I’ve been waiting all my life)
I see your reaction
Track Name: Social Call
So hard to leave you know
It’s hard to say good bye
But I’ll be gone today
Somewhere far away
Far, far away
Somewhere far away

Two o’clock this morning and I’m dreaming
Ocean waves crashing on my door
Never been so far away from you
I don’t think I’d live another day

If I go across the ocean
I’ll be closer to you
If you’d tell me what’s on your mind
Then I’ll know what to do

Six o’clock this morning and I’m leaving
I can’t take the coldness in my heart
Always thought you would be here forever
A fantasy is all it really was

The night begins to fall
I won’t wait for your call
Track Name: My Funny Friend
You would wear me down with that look in your eyes
A pair of sparkles free of any kind of lies
Left you in the corner of my heart
Maybe you have been there from the start

And you would wear me down with all your constant whine
Love your nose close to mine but I run out of time
Left you in the corner of my heart
Maybe you have been there from the start

But if we’re both so lonely
Won’t you come with me
There’s a world out there you might like to see
And if we’re both so lonely
Won’t you come with me
Home never seems too far with you by my side

And you would wear me down with all your constant whine
Love your nose close to mine but I run out of time
Left you in the corner of my heart
Maybe you have been there from the start

I wonder if you only knew (If you were here tonight)
I want to see the colors through your point of view
Your peaceful mind
When the world thinks I’m unkind
I long for your unjaded eyes
Track Name: Happy Place
One lazy Sunday afternoon
Looking through the window of your room
White clouds sail the sky and the whole world slowly goes by

You play the sweetest melody
The one forever in my memory
My secret hideaway to watch the world slowly go by

Safe and sound (When you’re around)
Where I could close my tired eyes

I like the way we let time fly
Leave all the troubles far behind
Pour yourself a glass of wine
And treasure a day so fine

The corner where we dance to your favorite song
The rhythm that you play I would sing along
A little happy place where we sit down
Watching the world slowly go by
Just you and your beautiful mind
Track Name: Sugar
You’d tell me to go but you want me to stay
Shouldn’t you know I’ll never go away
That look on your face, I have no words to say
What have you done and how you got this way

It’s not that easy but I wouldn’t mind
What we have I thought I would never find
Maybe you really are the crazy kind
But still, life with you is like

Sugar, sweeter than sugar
You got me wrapped around your finger
Sugar, high on your sugar
What you make me do, you don’t even know
You don’t even know
You don’t even know

You always move with a funny sway
I see your smile and you make my day
That look on your face, I have no words to say
I guess that’s how you always get your way

It’s not that easy but I wouldn’t mind
What we have I thought I would never find
Maybe I really am the cheesy kind
But still, life with you is like

Sugar, sweeter than sugar
You got me wrapped around your finger
Sugar, high on your sugar
What you make me do, you don’t even know
You don’t even know
You got me wrapped around your finger
And still, life with you is just like sugar
Track Name: Take A Ride
Would you ride through my thoughts
Path to darkness, peaks of lights
Would you try to understand where I’m coming from
And why I go

Would you come and stay here for a while
Can you spare a little time
We won’t be picture perfect forever
But we’ve got to try

Would you come and take a ride with me
Would you try to see what I see
When all that we lost has been found
Let’s go for another round

Would you come and take a ride with me
I know you want to be free
But there’s a place right beside me where I let you be
I let you be

Would you come and take a ride with me
Would you try to see what I see
When all that we lost has been found
Let’s go for another round

Take a ride with me

Take a ride with me though you want to be free
There’s a place right beside me where I let you be
I let you be

So come on take a ride
Come on take a ride
Come on take a ride with me
