Exes 04:44
Everything we do and everything we try, I want to hold the open door and you’re the reason why Everywhere we go and every song we love Seem to be the same to me, but not because of us I pictured fame and fortune You dreamed of modern dance The time we spend together has not to do with chance A dozen dusty glasses, but there was just the one With fingerprints around it from some old dusty song I pour a glance across you and now I’ll take a sip A drink of fame and fortune, a dance across your lips This old, dusty song has travelled far and wide We change the words around, dear, but this tune won’t be denied So cross that destination with exes and a line, That same old destination was with you all the time

Seashine 04:05
The moment you meet the starting line You’re already following far behind She draws it in red, then I draw mine We’ll run this marathon, honey, in half the time With all you need and all that you do It wasn’t working, but I’ll do it for you I can’t pretend that I don’t mind… So come on, man Let’s talk about you She didn’t do it all, you did some too You played a good game You ran a fast mile, but that kind of bullsh*t is good for a while You think you’re alone You think on your feet Well, that kind of thinking is dead in the street i can’t pretend that I don’t mind that the sea doesn’t shine I can’t pretend that I don’t mind that the sea doesn’t shine We both have problems that would take a pro to solve And just think, that when I leave, I’m the one that caused them all I can’t pretend that I don’t mind that the sea doesn’t shine

Tiny Cloud 05:51
I misplaced my destiny and set it free by accident Such a tiny cloud, but casts so profound Its shadow moves so delicate above the ground It slows to shade my every way so vehemently Come along, my tiny cloud, and shade the ground Glorious and beautiful, ever so dutiful Oh, my tiny cloud from heaven down, shade the ground It slows to shade my every way so vehemently Come along, my tiny cloud, and shade the ground Block the sun and hide my doubt that the moon will never come out
4.
Everything is golden And the colors are 3-D How others will behold them, “You people” are we What beckons our behavior Your second thoughts will no longer redeem What skin has bought on tax and labor Will cost us all as we bleed We “heathens,” not belonging, Won’t you listen to our captive people’s plea? Our fight may not redeem us “You people,” are we Show people you know what it means to feel loved (If) you know what it feels like, tell me what it feels like Explain what it feels like

about

Formed in November 2016, YOUPEOPL is the product of collaborations between Brandon Mason and Chan Maurice Evans. Having discovered a coincidental, mutual former band in which both musicians served brief stints during different timelines, the two connected, met briefly at a local venue and decided that the current culture in American society was prime for a new, Black creative outlet and began working on what would become their debut E.P., entitled “…are we.”

YOUPEOPL’s sound is a blend of many influences; soul, R&B, rock and heavy metal to post-punk noise-rock and beyond. They have cultivated and continue to nurture a brand of progressive introspection, outside thinking and self-awareness within their songs. YOUPEOPL is the sound of pride in diversity, the timbre of change and the echo of minority cultural struggle.
