about

"Take the reckless abandon and boundless energy of a teenage skate punk, jam him into the life experiences of a mid-30’s guy navigating the complexities of life, and you’ve got the recipe for A. Trozzo. From snot-rock to prog-metal, this is a man figuring himself out one song at a time.
On this 4-song EP, he does it all alone too - playing every instrument and layering harmony vocals that soar above thick production values by courtesy of Jesse Gander (Japandroids, Slates, Blessed).
Songs like “Colors” and “Fairly Squarely” feature arrangements and lyrics with insight that’s worth deeper contemplation, while the fist pumping party rock on “Dirtbags” and “For The Birds” is more than enough to make you want to dump a full beer all over yourself.
Life is full of ups and downs, and A. Trozzo is dead set on exploring the depths of each valley and the peaks of every mountain top. While the seriousness of topics like depressive avoidance, burn out, hypocrisy, imposter syndrome, climate change and related dread looms large, ultimately this EP is about eating hotdogs and cheeseburgers in the sun. When life hits you with a mustard tornado, all you can do is scoop up the wreckage, smear that shit onto a sizzling hot frank and chow down.

MuchMusic may have cancelled “The Wedge” a long time ago now, but that doesn’t mean A. Trozzo can’t keep dreaming of a goal that’s no longer attainable. It just means he’s too stubborn to give up."

Track Name: Dirtbag
This body's built to stand up
To petty tyrants and the corrupt
The ones who burn you out
The ones who tear you down

Politicians sell the plans to the city
To mafia farm team lackeys
Is anyone even fucking listening?
To the words from their mouths?
The way they run this town?

Because I'm a dirtbag faking a game of lonesome dove
Never satisfied with what I've got, so I just want more
And it hurts to know you felt that way
Because I acted so selfishly
And I've learned a lot about myself, but I can't go back

I hate summer and it comes through
In every single thing I try to do
The sun, it burns me out,
The heat, it cuts me down

I don't wanna float down the river
Or get patio beers down at Sisters
I feel bad enough for my liver
The state of this town, is the fate of this town

My personal guilt for being human
Is bigger than you can well imagine
and I'm not fearless, more like a tangent
These words don't sound like words,
they don't make a sound

Because I'm a dirtbag faking a game of lonesome dove
Never satisfied with what I've got, so I just want more
And it hurts to know you felt that way
Because I acted so selfishly
And I've learned a lot about myself, but I can't go back
Track Name: Fairly Squarely
I'd often tell you what I dream about
Forgotten lives, familiar faces
You couldn't translate a goddamned thing for me
The beauty lived in a place that came and went with the night

Can you shed a little light for me?
On the forests and the snow, that come vibrant like they're alive
But in the daylight, they'll reiterate one common goal:
to kill the dreamer in you

Kinda didn't even realize
Just where and when the shift took place
These things happen slowly and subtly
We watch in shock and awe as the majesty gets stripped away

Can you shed a little light for me?
On the blood in the snow, that comes straight from the horse's mouth
And in the shadows, they'll wait until you're on your own
Then kill the dreamer in you

They'll kill the dreamer in you
They'll kill the dreamer in me
They'll bring the system to it's knees
They'll kill the dreams of us
They'll kill the dreams of them
Don't let them look you in the eyes

Hold on, because we're not finished yet
And it's up to us to realize that
The final nail in the coffin is your to hammer down.

Can you flat-out fucking lie to me
Just to keep me bold
To give me strength to carry on
Because they're on the doorstep,
and delivering one common fate
To kill the dreamer in you

Ya they'll kill the dreams of us
Ya they'll kill the dreams of them
Don't let them look you in the eyes
Froggy eyes
Track Name: For the Birds
The light changes and you're already gone
You take it one step too far then you ask for forgiveness
And I admit, it's just easier that way
But you act, so foolishly

My calendar says it's mighty close to time
When the birds fly south, take my mood with them
I admit it's harder this way
Why cant they stay?
And keep me company?
Down here.

Why do I want what lord knows I'll never have
Who dealt me the worlds' worst hand?

It's on my hands
Track Name: Colors
You should be proud of what you've got
But you're tired, so tired
When summer's heat sucks the words right out of your mouth
The curve in your spine, is as hungover as you are

Tell me about the colors
The flags we sew to ourselves
Tell me about your love
If God didn't exist, it would be necessary to invent him

Tall orders every day of the week
You call in your favors as an excuse to speak

The routine will dissipate
As the landscape changes
And I can't tolerate another night in this heat

Tell me about the colors
The flags we sew to ourselves and what they mean
Tell me about your love
If God didn't exist, it would be necessary to invent him .
