about

Porcelain Pill Melbourne, Australia

There are two us in porcelain pill. Adam Scott-McGuinness (lead vocals, guitar, ukulele, looping sequencing) and Madeleine Becker (backing vocals, cello, keyboards, sequencing)

Through the use of live looping and sampling we're able to create a big diverse sound live. Definitely a sound much bigger than a usual two piece act.

We'll be releasing our debut EP in June 2013.

Can't wait to share it!

Track Name: Storm in a Teacup
You try to stir. To make a scene.
To fill the pages of imagined magazines.
When lightning strikes it's more than once.
It may seem strange to most but not to all of us.
Now it's time to go. It's time to go.

Storm inside a teacup never seems to let up.
The wind is always changing pushing us away from shore.
Storm inside a teacup never seems to let up.
The wind is always changing pushing us away from shore.
It's a storm in a teacup

While sticks and stones may hold me down
The word spreads quickly in the smallest of the towns.
And from what I've heard I'm not compelled.
I love the teacup but I hate the storms it's held.

Now it's time to go. It's time to go.

Storm inside a teacup never seems to let up.
The wind is always changing pushing us away from shore.
Storm inside a teacup never seems to let up.
The wind is always changing pushing us away from shore.
It's a storm in a teacup

I love the teacup but I hate the storms it's held.
It's time to go. I love the teacup but I hate the storms it's held.
It's time to go. It's time to go. I love the teacup but I hate the storms it's held. It's time to go. It's time to go. I love the teacup but I hate the storms it's held.

I love the teacup but I hate the storms it's held.
Now it's time to go.
Track Name: Salt On Skin
Oh she plants a kiss
and the love how it grows like a tree that has rich soil beneath it's roots.
The taste of salt on skin.
Oh the sun goes down but it's just begun and the light is at it's best.
Now the sky turns red and my heart is beating like a thunder in my chest.

Here comes the rain.
Here comes the rain.

You can I choose to dance about within the rain
and smile like we're insane.
We feel relief. The water cleans and cools our overheated skin.
The night is setting in.

The taste of salt on skin.
Oh the sea breeze blows like a gentle whisper to hold each other close.
Tree imaginary.
Oh I like to believe that the leaves are multicoloured like my heart
and one day we build a house within it's branches and never have to part.

You can I choose to dance about within the rain
and smile like we're insane.
We feel relief. The water cleans and cools our overheated skin.
The night is setting in.

There's a thunder in my chest.

You can I choose to dance about within the rain
and smile like we're insane.
We feel relief. The water cleans and cools our overheated skin.
The night is setting in.
Track Name: Secondhand Book
I'm writing in the back of this book.
If only I could spell your name.
It's not like it's a first edition anyway.

If you gave me something clean to write on
It really wouldn't feel the same.
I'd call you but I lost your number days ago.

I don't even know who wrote this book but all the illustrations
Show me all the things I need to know about life's complications.
I write all my best ideas in tiny words within the margins
and one day I will mail this book to you.

Maybe I destroy the meanings when i rearrange the words
You really can't have one without the other one.
So give me more than ones and zeros
Tear me from a flickering screeen
And we can glue our books together into one.

I don't even know who wrote this book but all the illustrations
Show me all the things I need to know about life's complications.
I write all my best ideas in tiny words within the margins
and one day I will mail this book to you.
Track Name: Glass Houses
You won't convince me. Not at all.
That it's gravity that holds me to the floor.
It's just a phase of mine.
I believe that one day we will just let go.
Just let go and the world will float below serene and still.
Just let go and the world will float below serene and still.

Narcissistic. Uninspired.
You just won't shut up but barely said a word.
Don't you see? There is more to this than just the you and me.

All my friends are in glass houses throwing stones
With no concern for broken windows.
All my friends are in glass houses throwing stones
With no concern for broken windows.

Just let go. Just let go and the world will float below serene and still.
Just let go and the world will float below serene and still.

All my friends are in glass houses throwing stones
With no concern for broken windows.
All my friends are in glass houses throwing stones
With no concern for broken windows.
Track Name: Hidden Meanings
I've got an organ inside my chest and it making melodies just for you
And I can't get them out of my head cos there's something sweet about a simple tune.

Let's take up the chorus and sing 'til our voice is gone. Gone.
Let's take up the chorus and sing 'til our voice is gone.

Marry me we'll live alone together on a plateau
and play our favourite songs on slightly out of tune pianos
When it rains it sounds like tiny drums upon the ceiling
We'll unravel every word to find the hidden meanings

You've got a rhythm inside your heart and it beats to the melody within my soul.
When we're together it is loud and strong and it strips away all our self control.

Marry me we'll live alone together on a plateau
and play our favourite songs on slightly out of tune pianos
When it rains it sounds like tiny drums upon the ceiling
We'll unravel every word to find the hidden meanings
