Lyrics of “Suitcase” song:

Wake me in the morning
I don’t want to sleep very long
I’ll unpack my suitcase

Only if you you pick up the phone
Only if we could say we’re sorry
Only if we could say we’re not
Only if you could say you loved me
Only if… I was the one

Wake me in the evening
I don’t wan’t to get out of bed
I’ll pick up my laundry

Only if you open the door
Only if we could say we’re sorry
Only if we could say we’re not
Only if you could say you loved me
Only if… I was the one

I don’t want to waste my time
I just want to dance all night
I don’t want to wait for you
All of my life
I don’t want to close my eyes
I just want to dance all night
I don’t want to wait for you
All of my life
Wake me in the weekend
I don’t care if sleep too long
I’ll take out the garbage

Only if you pick up that phone
Only if we could say we’re sorry
Only if we could say we’re not
Only if you could say you loved me
Only if… I was the one

I don’t want to waste my time
I just want to dance all night
I don’t want to wait for you
All of my life
I don’t want to close my eyes
I just want to dance all night
I don’t want to wait for you
All of my life
I told you
I’m never gonna leave again
And I swear
You told me your never gonna cheat again
I don’t care
Tell my heart a million times
and that won’t change me none
If we need some time to think girl
You’re not the one
I don’t want to waste my time
I just want to dance all night
I don’t want to wait for you
All of my life
I don’t want to close my eyes
I just want to dance all night
I don’t want to wait for you
All of my life

I don’t want to waste my time
I just want to dance all night
I don’t want to wait for you
All of my life
I don’t want to close my eyes
I just want to dance all night
I don’t want to wait for you
All of my life

The New Electric Sound is influenced by vintage artists such as Buddy Holly, The Zombies and The Beach Boys, but also more recent bands such as Vampire Weekend, The Strokes, The Kooks, Cage the Elephant and The Black Keys. They have been described as having 50s rock tones “with a hook filled melody, syncopated guitar and drum work and fine tenor lead vocal delivery.” “To further enhance their simple, retro sound,” writes Spencer Flanagan from City Weekly, “the band uses mostly vintage equipment, from their old Crumar organ to the old-fashioned Super 55 microphones.” Along with vintage equipment, The New Electric Sound also presents a vintage stage image. Ashley-Jayne Osborne from Vinyl Sea Press writes, “They’re a mixture of pompadour hairdo’s and thick-rimmed glasses, cardigans over button-up shirts and sharp looking shoes.”
