Lofty Stills returns after a year's absence with the crushing new single "Every Fight," a swirling drama of folk stylings, deep country undertones, rich synths, and lush strings, providing an ambitious soundtrack to the anguish within us. A decided departure from earlier work, "Every Fight" marks the beginning of a new sonic direction for Lofty Stills, and just a taste of what's to come.

Special thanks to:
May Xiong for helping me realize my vision and providing me with such an incredible image. The following individuals/people for your inspiration and voluntary or involuntary support (moral, spiritual, musical): Timothy Andrews (Tim, we've got big dreams, let's make them come true), Caleb Groh, Ben Harthun, Aaron Roche, Henry Jarman, Nathan Phillips, Night Beds (Abe & Winston, one day we'll create together), Brian Fisher, Joey Lyon, Glass Frames, and my parents.
I'm getting closer to jumping off of that creative cliff and I can't wait to take you with me.
Hey man is it always you? I did not fare this right
Spine is splitting, cloudy view
I've lost every fight
But if you should go, I will never know
languid in the night, how long til the light
How long does it hurt? is there more to earn
falling toward my faithful end?
Though feel like I could snap in two
I did not fail this time
lace the sun around my hand, don't falter in the brine
I will wait, every fight it cost me
some dark shade, every night it haunted
I will fade, every fight will cost me
I've known pain, every time I fight
