Almost done with drums for The Careful Ones record! #thecarefulones (at Inertia Sound Studio)
During the summer of 2011 childhood best friends, Joshua and Benji, reunited after years of college and travel. Sharing similar struggles and disconnects, they realized the lives they lived apart from each other over the years were strikingly similar (loss of loved ones and personal illness). Joshua asked if Benji would take on a project with him in hopes that others would find their shared stories just as comfortingly familiar. “Creating music with Benji came to be a therapeutic gift that transcended anything we could have imagined,” Joshua recalls, “A few honest moments led to a few honest songs.”
"I think with any sort of success there is this business minded pressure that pervades and prevents honest expression. We just happened to stumble across more songs while spending countless late nights together."
From Lakeland, Florida, The Careful Ones are Joshua Robinson, Benji Bussell, Steele Strader, Stephen Howell and Jon Santana.
Back when we weren’t older dear,
Back when we were sober here
On that hilltop where we’d run
Where we’d take photographs crippled by the sun
We Were Young
Oh my God I’ve heard we’re one
but we were young and didn’t know the significance
but in that garden hind’ your fathers house
Our knees were soiled to the color of your blouse
We Were Young
Oh We Were Younger
We were told we’d always be younger
Did we ever love, were we just kids who knew nothing of it?
and fearlessly I’d march that victory home
and I’d stare at the ceiling then with the taste of cinnamon that begged to be left
Oh we were younger.
PREMIERE: The Careful Ones Music Video “When We Were Younger”
Artist: the careful ones
Track Name: we were younger
Demographics: florida gets to the point
Why: cause we were…
Prognosis: it’s really hard nowadays to resist the charm of a hundred buttons flashing in front of you as you skillfully produce your sparkling new tech-infused hymn, but “the careful ones” do just that…they resist and succeed in producing the most difficult kind of music; the honestly simple one (and simple certainly doesn’t mean easy…unless you can play strings- and I don’t mean the underwear- with bare teeth). look out for their second album sometime this spring!
The Careful Ones - When We Were Young
A wistful jaunt down memory lane.
Our brand new single.
Single Releases Tomorrow.
We are so excited!
When We Were Younger
