Practical, the latest release from New Zealand based alt/pop duo The Response, is a future retro track exploring the tenuous relationship between dreams and reality. The restless lyrics give way to the upbeat tempo and indulge in a dose of hope - even when it's not practical.


Feels like I’m drowning in the feedback
Lit up by mirror’s glow
I hate how quickly I can lose track
Forsaking what I know

I’m gazing skyward, drifting ‘round
River wired up and down
Everything connected
I’m swimming through electric dreams
Future closer than it seems
Not what I expected

Maybe we have what it takes to make it
Maybe I don’t wanna know we don’t
What would it mean if we’re both mistaken?
Let’s carry on, no one said it’s practical

I’m always waiting for the weekend
Hoping it can soothe my soul
Feels like I’m sinking at the deep end
Did I ever have control?

I know it’s true I can be a little much sometimes
But you’re all my everything


released September 28, 2018
