about

powdercoat Los Angeles, California

Kristin Mooney and Claire Holley began singing together a few years ago when a mutual friend re-introduced them. The two had an immediate vocal chemistry and soon began writing together. After hearing them perform at McCabe’s, Greg Herzenach approached them... “You wanna record this stuff?” And with Greg’s help—and a handful of stellar musicians—powdercoat made an EP. Thanks for listening... ... more

Track Name: Float
float
(mooney/holley)


wake up wake up
we’re moving
it’s all about
where we won’t be

and all we can do
foraging through
counting the leaves
left on the trees

i know the way to go
it’s a wonder
and we float where we belong
on the backwater

spin me a song
take me along
counting the leaves
left on the trees

the sun warms your face
make it last, drink it in
come a winter’s day

look up look up
it’s morning
never been about where you go
but how you get there

your voice in my ear
distant or near
counting the leaves
left on the trees

the painted wings you made
will fly here
loosen every string
and let go
Track Name: Trailing
trailing
(mooney/holley)


there you go forgetting your things
trailing you like subjects to kings
with your scarf red and flying
from your bicycle it's blinding
down the lane


cactus, pines and pools of steam
you’re looking for the American dream
in the west you’ll find your fame
forever keep your name
from fading away


trailing
behind like a trailer
shining silver in the sun

trailing
just like a trailer
running as far as you can run



who can blame you for wanting more
since you’re gone who’s minding the store
floating moon pies in the sky
might as well kiss your goodbye
from a moving train


trailing
behind like a trailer
shining silver in the sun

trailing
just like a trailer
running as far as you can run
Track Name: Wake
wake
(mooney/holley)


your ride is here now
gonna pick you up on the corner

your hair like a banner
waves a message through the air

no brighter spirit
you were more than they bargained for

something so brand new
no one knew what to make of you


thank you for being here
you’re never lost on me dear


in the wake of winter
you wrapped yourself in skeins of wool

now i walk through fields where
we made angels in the snow

your favorite season taken by the bonfire
holding fast and true I wanna fly up there with you


thank you for being here
you’re never lost on me dear
Track Name: Carnival
carnival
(mooney/holley)


castaway
run the river’s edge
hand-me-down nowhere to stay

trailblazer
cut throat fan amazer
left defenseless, come what may


give it the ole heave ho
give it the ole heave ho
give it the ole heave ho
park it in the poorhouse now pay later


carousel
ponies round and round
leave with nothing that you bring

dreamtaker
tight rope walking fever
eyes that follow from below


give it the ole heave ho
give it the ole heave ho
give it the ole heave ho
park it in the poorhouse now pay later


howl at the top of your voice
for losing the grace and the poise
you have got a story to sell
you have got a story to sell
you have got a story to sell


half believer
tight rope walking fever
eyes that follow from below


give it the ole heave ho
give it the ole heave ho
give it the ole heave ho
park it in the poorhouse now pay later
Track Name: Water Gives
water gives
(mooney/holley)


who you gonna be
when you return
someone i’ve known
or something i'll learn

motors hum
in the heat of day
dust has come
and it’s bound to stay


water gives and
water takes away


will you find
what you are looking for
a shotgun house
a remark on the door

a river sign
with a faded name
could be a headstone
for a grave


water gives and
water takes away


saved by the shade in the afternoon
most folk say this town is through


no one ever dreamed
you would dry
i miss the sound
of your streams rushing by

sometimes at the end
of my day
i sit on your banks
with nothing to say


water gives and
water takes away
Track Name: Movie Star
movie star
(mooney/holley)


no big role to play
with hair turning grey
no one calling on the phone

no electric wind
or watchful camera crew
nothing but the sea and you

you kick around the sand
hold your hand to block the sun
sail away in your mind
but here you’ll always be
a movie star to me

you've cast out lines before
with waves up to your knees
now you do just what you please

little fish stop by
when the big guns disappear
this they call the golden years


you kick around the sand
hold your hand to block the sun
sail away in your mind
but here you’ll always be
a movie star to me

no one’s losing
you just can’t stop moving

no big role to play
or bad guys to chase away
through swinging doors in dusty towns

time to take a bow
the sun is setting down
back inside your fire burns


you kick around the sand
hold your hand to block the sun
sail away in your mind
but here you’ll always be
a movie star to me
Track Name: Opium
opium
(mooney/holley)


i hope death feels like opium
where the sky is clear and wider
all that’s bad is good again
where everyone is kinder


and i will see you there
in the place where we all
care about each other


you were the light
turned my night to day
but even in your beauty sleep
you shined the path away


i will see you there
in the place where we all
care about each other


the place where you are loved
takes you from here to there
the place where you are loved


i hope death feels like opium
where the sky is clear and wider
all that’s bad is good again
where everyone is kinder


and i will see you there
in the place where we all
care about each other


bare feet on the morning dew
reaching for child in you
bare feet on the morning dew
