about

Recorded during the summer of 2011, the Disconnection EP was originally planned to be a full album. But things didn't work out and the results were unsatisfying. So, the band decided to cut the planned album in half and instead release an EP. Revolving around the themes of isolation and loneliness, singer and guitarist Gabriel Tiburcio wrote the songs while in a cynical mood which explains the EP's darker lyrical content.

about

Social Stereo Fremont

Whether out of boredom or necessity, Gabriel Tiburcio had always been interested in creating things. As a little boy, he'd often draw comics with friends during lunch. It's no surprise that he would form a band with several high school friends. Hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area, Social Stereo likes loud guitar music. But they like ambient things too.

Track Name: Bedroom Lights
Last night

You were in my sights

Then, you disappeared



Fate’s resigned

I know it’s unkind

This room appears austere



Bedroom lights, magnetic eyes

Kerosene, please make me clean

There’s a lightshow from your window

But it’s not the end, well don’t you know



Thoughts confined

By them I don’t define

My actions are sincere



Bedroom lights

I see them in my mind

They flicker, then reappear



Bedroom lights, magnetic eyes

Kerosene, please make me clean

There’s a lightshow from your window

But it’s not the end, well don’t you know



Lady, dance in the flames

Until there's no remains

Put me out with the fire

Let's burn out, let's burn out


Afraid, your voice starts to fade

Your body has decayed

Put me out with the fire

Let's burn out, let's burn out



Bedroom lights, magnetic eyes

Kerosene, please make me clean

There’s a lightshow from your window

But it’s not the end, well don’t you know



Lady, dance in the flames

Until there's no remains

Put me out with the fire

Let's burn out, let's burn out


Afraid, your voice starts to fade

Your body has decayed

Put me out with the fire

Let's burn out, let's burn out
Track Name: Disconnection
Takes too long to sleep at night
I claw out my eyes
Even though I’d lose my sight
I know it’s unwise

My bones are soaked, my heart is wet
My liver’s turned to ash
Melted through the sheets of blue
I can’t even stand

I feel a disconnection
But your breath is on my skin
I’m half-dead already
I’m half-dead already


Invisible now but don’t know how
To see if I’m blind
You hear what you wanna hear
I don’t think you’re too kind

Lonely ghost, I fear the most
Just run away and hide
Tell yourself that you’re not well
Let me come inside

Sad to say we’re not friends
I can’t remember when
You were on me
You were on me



I feel a disconnection
But your breath is on my skin
I’m half-dead already
I’m half-dead already
Track Name: House of Bricks
Afterthought, better on than off but truly desolate. Dreamers in a place that's overrun by us.

Losers listening on an overcrowded bus.

Glowing screen, interface interrupts our day to day. The walls are closing in and I am erased.

These fakes are real but I can't feel what you feel

House of bricks, falling over, we can't fix this right kind of wrong, we were never that strong

Eventually, I'd like to meet you eye to eye, confined to me, carrying this weight that's not meant for two.

we've never met so I can't say I know you

the static's loud, this hum is deafening and I can't hear a sound. This image is lost and burning to the ground

You're no one that I want to know, tv snow.

House of bricks, falling over, we can't fix this right kind of wrong, we were never that strong

House of bricks, falling over, we can't fix this right kind of wrong, we were never that strong

House of bricks, falling over, we can't fix this right kind of wrong, we were never that strong
Track Name: The Snow
I walked through white quicksand talking to two of my friends. We laughed but I felt sad. For why I couldn't comprehend.

They became dots on a white background, and I saw they began to kiss. Ran over while running out of breath, my hands were clenched into fists.

Grabbed him by the shoulder, but his face I couldn't recognize. The air began to get colder, ran away without meeting your eyes.

The snow drifted down on a blank plain and I felt my feet move fast. The people were all faceless, they were strangers from a different past.

I sprinted through the spaces, my lungs were filled with ice. The building was a beacon, gravitated toward the light.

And I opened the door to the lobby, it was nice and warm inside. The seats were all empty, like I walked into a different time.

Took a seat by the window, as I stretched out on the chair. I looked out at the falling snow. Did nothing else but stare.
