about

After their crititically acclaimed band "The Vinyl Addicts" disbanded in 2008, Brian Murray and Anthony DeFeo began writing some new songs in an apartment on Montgomery street in Brooklyn's Crown Heights. The songs were catchy, unapologetically pop and riddled with harmonies and introspective lyrics. Over time, the new band "Montgomery Streets" became known for their energetic and ever changing live shows. In 2013 they released their first EP "Damn Girl". Produced by Chris Cubeta at GaluminumFoil Studios in Williamsburg, the album marks a huge step forward for the band. Featuring Spencer Cohen on drums and Chris Cubeta on guitar/keys, songs like "Change" boast a fuller sound and driving beat while fan favorite "The One Who Got Away" sticks to the groups acoustic roots.

Track Name: Change
i'm here now just to move
our lives are passing you by
the time i’m 25
in the pictures i’m that older guy

i’ll push myself i know
ill sink before i let you go
get your coat why don’t we
finish this tomorrow in the sober light of day

you’re always looking for something else
when you know we have, when you know we have it
for love, for fun, for endless wealth
when you know we have, when you know we have it
your'e always looking for something new
when you know we have, when you know we have it
cutest girl girl to ever sing the blues
when you know we have, when you know we’re looking for

change but it don’t come
you need much more than i’ve got in me
change but it don’t come
what i need is summed up simply
change but it don’t come
a girl to love a place to rest mine
change but it don’t come
the ground beneath my feet the sun overhead

I'm here now just for show
at least i go with your new clothes
should i stay? should i tell you
that it's over or do you already know?
i tried with all my heart
but we both knew from the very start
what this was don't be mad because
you're still who you were and i'm who i was

well everyone knows i'm lazy
and that you've got legs for days
don't care if they think i'm crazy
the last thing needed was more of the same thing

i tried with all my luck
to be cool and to keep up
with you love but the truth is
you're so restless that i'm tired of pleasing you
Track Name: Damn Girl
my mistake was letting on
that i would break if you were gone
well you played me hey baby
you feel like a stranger
but the moment i let my guard down
well you took your gloves off to your sisters

your mistake was being fine
with screwing up to pass the time
and as soon as the going
got tough i got high
by the time i came down
you were fucking some other guy

we burned so damn bright so damn fast
and damn girl it was hot while it lasted
but we both know where the highest highs lead
how could something that feels so good
be so damn bad for me

and i was right you left i broke
but hell that’s not what hurt the most
after so many years hiding
just you and me
look how quickly you dragged down another
to commiserate with shamelessly

pretty girl with dirty thoughts
fair share of licks, you took your shots
cuz you’ve had it rough
you feel beaten and drained
but the ‘scripts work enough
you don’t have to feel anything
the ‘scripts work enough
you don’t have to feel anything

how could ya be so damn bad for me
when ya feel so

i'm sorry i woke you babe
where you going darlin?
i'm sorry i woke you love
don't you go don't you go
i couldn't take the noise
whatcha know about it
i couldn't help but run
don't you go don't you go

i'd feel better if you don't
i'd say that i'd call ya
but we both know that i won't
and i'll always love ya
but it's better if i don't
Track Name: Mary
it's been awhile since i've been alone
whatever the day brings i know
i'm coming home to you
and all of my friends they
see me for the slave i am
i’ll always be chasing you baby
i'll do it to the bitter end

yeah i will

cuz i'm bound your will to bleed ya
and bound by lack of one to need ya
Mary don't leave

it's been awhile since i've done this on my own
i like having you there safe
tucked in my back pocket
just in case i lose control
i know there are things i need to learn to do alone
but girl in those hard times
you make it so damn easier

yeah ya do

why you trying to take me
why you trying to make me choose
between you and the rest of the world
why you trying to take me
why you trying to make me choose
don’t you know that

it’s been awhile since i’ve been alone
i like having you there safe
tucked in my back pocket
just in case i lose control
Track Name: Younger Then
you were hot for me
then cold again that’s your routine
i can’t complain or disagree
if i’m not around to make a scene

love’s the only game
you lose when you refuse to play
so love me now
or leave me kate
honey that’s the only way

i was stuck
living the same damn day
just my luck
you came back into play
i know you
got plenty you need to say
that you were younger then
well i was younger then too

you came back to me
dammit baby can’t you see
that i was meant for you and you for me
or fate would have it seem

girl you’ve had your days
and lord only knows my burdens babe
but if all i gotta do is change your mind
then all you gotta do is stay this time

i know you changed and baby that’s ok
i know it seems strange but baby it’s a good mistake
if i had known we’d crash and burn before i asked you in
i’d still say baby hell let’s fuck it up all over again
Track Name: The One Who Got Away
i said some things i wish i could take back
and not because they weren't true
but more for lack of tact

everyone's got that someone they can turn to and say 
it was you my dear, the one who got away
 
what's that called, when you're busy making plans
my head it tries to rationalize my heart still makes demands
 
everyone's got that someone they can turn to and say
it was you my dear, the one who got away
 
just for tonight
we can be you and me before the bad times
just for tonight
 
i did some things i wish i hadn't done
and not because of who i was
but who i have become

everyone's got that someone they can turn to and say 
it was you my dear, the one who got away
 
what's that word, i'm told it's all you need
with him you seem much happier with her i'm incomplete
 
everyone's got that someone they can turn to and say
it was you my dear, the one who got away
