The Hoot Hoots Seattle

Seattle power pop quartet The Hoot Hoots are irresistible party starters. Their songs are powered by fuzzy guitars, fuzzier keyboards, and headhum-inducing hooks, and all these combine in a glorious, slightly insane energy in both their live shows and in their newest album, Colorpunch. ... more

Track Name: In the Air
My mentor said it's time
Climbed out the cockpit and he left me behind
And I briefly thought maybe this is how I die

The sun bleached concrete
Passed underneath my wheels
As I cleared my mind
By focusing on the tempo of the white lines

And my heart skipped
As my wheels left the ground
The runway faded away
And I took a look around
The world stretched out below me
And I felt a sense of overwhelming calm

As my engine hummed a steady song
'Cause I'm all alone in the air

I reached my altitude
And took a minute to just cruise
And notice the sound
Of absolutely nobody else around

To me it was sacred sky
It was my private cathedral until my
Radio crackled to life

As I prepared to land my training kicked in
And within moments
I was standing on the earth again
There amongst my peers
in the center of a ring
They ripped holes in my shirt
So i'd have room for my wings

Oh that memory's so sweet to me
Now I long to hear my engine sing
When I'm all alone in the air
