about

“In Complete Sentences” is the second EP by Emptybottles., recorded during mid to late 2016.

It features 5 songs of different forms - “Sparrow” follows a traditional verse-chorus structure, before breaking into an instrumental second half; “Incomplete Sentences” features a trumpet part and a free tempo like ending; “Ash Wednesday” is perhaps the most ambiguous composition so far.

Like the first EP, it was recorded during a time of struggle but we are glad our trusted friends helped us finish the record.

Wilmer Chan tracked the audio and Jay Tse mixed, mastered the record, and Dorothy Ko provided the album art.

Track Name: Professional Struggler
I don’t want to wrestle with the fact that I am on a losing streak.
I don’t want to struggle with finding words to calm you in your sleep.
And I struggle – in the eyes of the wrestler.
But I’m old – much older than the wrestler.
Just turn me over.
Track Name: Hidden Track
A hardcover split in two, spread across the size of this room.
Among the other things we've decided to let loose.
The record wears off into a silent hum, and all I could hear was the ups and downs of your breath.
And then the hidden track scared us both into a maddening fit.
"Just stop it," your eyes yelled.
But you couldn't say a thing, how could you?
Track Name: Sparrow
A chest full of ache is easy to claim,
a chest full of emptiness – a personal mistake.
So put on your winter coat, and move on from coast to coast.
Finding a vantage point to which I’d see, the signs that tells me when to leave.
To make out the shapes of you, and all that isn’t true.
