Phenotract's 4th full length "It's All We Feel, Every Day" delves deeper into the ethereal electronica territory hinted at on his last release "Shifting". Melding together an amalgam of styles, it takes cues from electronica-pop, new wave, and indie/shoegazer music that all blend together with retro-futuristic sounds, heavenly vocals, and melancholic lyrics.

Track Name: Fly, For So Long
A break of day
the fall of the night

See the sky, transform
in all its glory

Would I stay
and would you go?

See us through
these lights overhead

Invested in time
we had too much of
Where’s the return
i can’t seem to find

Memory tucked inside
dusted off
to shine
Where’s it now?
it’s gone from our sights

Break our ties and find out how to fly for so long
high above the buildings, where will we end up?
Let’s watch the earth as it spins out of control
we’re relieved and free…above it all
Track Name: We Went Wrong
We always thought it would pass
We never thought it would fade so fast
We watch the world go by
We don't need to do anything at all

Let us rest easy for once
we never had a chance
Will you remind me of where we went wrong?
I don't have a clue

If we stay around, we'll never know
if this could have been
What was meant to be we won't find out
We always told ourselves
that the end was close

Watching our lives, pass before our eyes
states of disrepair... only make things stronger
Track Name: Rivers
See the horizon
crumble into dust
The ashes of being
resetting this trust

Mountains of hope
unreached by fate
The turn of the tides
in a singular state

See our rivers
dry into sand
The grains of feeling
tempted inside our hands
Swim deeper now - there’s no turning around
Don’t come back
only you know where we are

Looking up
at the passing rivers
Heads down
ashamed of where it’s gone

Staring down
with the flowing tides
We never gave up
til it broke completely
Track Name: Real To Me (v2)
Never did I think
it would last forever
Never did I think
it'd fade this fast

And what did we say
and what did we change again
to remove ourselves
from this picture

This doesn't all
seem real to me
The past leaves the present
and the future looks so uneasy

Always starting again
never trying to look back
Searching for what was
never meant to be

We're flying high
to who knows where
and who will I see
to make it all go away
Track Name: Souls Intact
The oceans below gave way
setting life adrift
A passage in time
set the ways
of the future that passed

Fleeting moments were lost
in translation so fast
Happening right now
at all costs

Sending all these signals
Where do they end up?
Promises etched in stones
unable to move
Water cascades over dreams
Swimming in the river
Farewell to the unknown
It's time to move on

CH: I longed for it all
but it never happened
If I gave it up
for tomorrow

Where would today be?
And would it exist?
Without our souls intact
and ready to burst
Track Name: In Silence
Slipping away in silence
let's go our separate ways
Connecting again, once we're found
when our hearts melt over

Slipping away
in silence
Track Name: Tried To Run (v2)
Wouldn't know what to do
even if we tried to run
It was in and out of focus
right in front me

Reaching and holding
only to let it go
Because I couldn't finish a thought
with you where

Did you all know
if we could stay
frozen in time
You couldn't call today

We should know
if we couldn't stay
What could we do
because it was our fault

Raised up
on a higher ground
Sitting and watching it go
all below

And what are you gonna say
when the sky comes crashing down
We're interlocked
and we'll always shine
Track Name: Wash Your Fears
Reverse this thinking
it’ll only cause you harm
it’s no fault of your own

Lay down let it take over
wash your fears away

The only way to found out
is to let yourself go head
