About

Santa Monica, California based indie pop duo Only Bricks are spreading their sun-soaked anthems with a debut EP entitled Foundation, released April 20. Comprised of husband and wife songwriting duo Anne DiGiovanni and Joseph Lewczak, the EP is their entry into the LA songwriting scene.

Foundation is an eclectic and unique collection of rock, pop, and dance, mixed with their own individual and uplifting musical sensibility. Loaded with songs that will inspire joy with bright, multi-faceted melodies, poppy hooks, and lyrics that tell relatable stories of love, desire, and connection, Only Bricks’ Foundation is destined to be the soundtrack to your summer romance.   

Since their crowd-electrifying live debut in April at The Peppermint Club in Los Angeles, the new EP is already getting heaped with praise.  The blog Musicotfuture, says it "will have you dancing all night."  The blog Thinking Lyrically remarked about the songs’ "huge, infectious choruses that are perfect for summer!"  Indie Voice Blog hailed "[t]he sweet vocals of Anne DiGiovanni, combined with the musical genius of her husband, Joseph Lewczak, create music that is a sheer joy to behold, and makes you want to get up and boogie."  LA Music Critic Bob Leggett went so far as to exclaim, "[t]he new reigning King and Queen of Indie Pop music. Their new release, Foundation, is one of the best of 2018." Vents Magazine called it the "perfect California indie pop record."  Substream Magazine exclaimed the lead single, "Twisted," is "full and rich while still moving and dancing with pop sensibility."  Atwood Magazine raved that the EP’s second single, "(Your Love Gets Me) High," is a "fuzzy, feel-good and infectiously upbeat single."

Attention and critical acclaim are not entirely new to the members of Only Bricks. Vocalist Anne DiGiovanni was raised a classical, musical theater, and church musician (piano, violin), while instrumentalist Joseph Lewczak started playing guitar at the age of six. They first combined forces when Joseph’s cover band Generator Honey, a two-time (2013-14) New York Advertising Week Battle of the Ad Bands champion, added Anne’s powerful vocals to match Joseph’s exuberant lead guitar. Each have made their distinctive mark on separate projects: Anne as a veteran of the ASCAP New York Musical Theatre Festival’s Songwriting Workshop and The Bitter End-hosted New York Singer/Songwriter Sessions, and Joseph as one half of the duo Edison & Belle whose seven-song EP, Love Beyond, was hailed by Examiner.com as an "infectious debut" with a "modern, eclectic mix of styles and tone colors." The duo were also recently recognized with a Top 5 Song (Rock Category) in the 2017 Great American Song Contest for their co-write, "Over My Head."

Lyrics

 

I understand, life doesn't last
You've had a difficult time
Stuck in a past you can't get past
Living inside of your dysfunctional mind

Open, open your heart and let go
Whatcha waiting for?
Be here, be here and dance, whoa
And don't hold back anymore

Chorus:
Get on the floor
Make your heartbeat loud
Get on the floor
You can feel the sound
Get on the floor
You just lose control
Get on the floor
Let it fill your soul
Get up, get up, get up, get up, get on the
Get up, get up, get up, get up
Get on the floor

You're feeling like you're faking it
But there is nowhere to hide
You've got this chance, you're taking it
Gonna get high on this emotional ride

Open, open your heart and let go
Whatcha waiting for?
Be here, be here and dance, whoa
And don't hold back anymore

Get on the floor
Make your heartbeat loud
Get on the floor
You can feel the sound
Get on the floor
You just lose control
Get on the floor
Let it fill your soul
Get up, get up, get up, get up, get on the
Get up, get up, get up, get up, get on the
Get up, get up, get up, get up
Get on the floor

Make your heart beat
You can feel it
You just lose it

Get up, get up, get up, get up, get on the
Get up, get up, get up, get up, get on the
Get up, get up, get up, get up

Get on the floor
Make your heartbeat loud
Get on the floor
You can feel the sound
Get on the floor
You just lose control
Get on the floor
Let it fill your soul
(repeat)

Get up, get up, get up, get up, get on the
Get up, get up, get up, get up, get on the
Get up, get up, get up, get up
Get on the floor

This love used to be a palace now it’s a prison
Locked down in the dungeon of the kingdom I’m missing
Now get getting your attention is a constant battle
Your smile your smile is like the sunshine in Seattle
Where did it go?
Where did it go?
I don’t know

Chorus:
I don’t want to be just an afterthought
Not a keychain for the car you bought
Only take me out in the parking lot
I don’t want to be, I don’t want to be just an after, just an afterthought

This love, used to be a Tesla now it’s a Taurus
Stalled out, in the traffic on the freeway before us
Now leave, leaving might be selfish of me but I don’t think so
Cause your heart, your heart is like July in San Francisco
Why is it cold?
Why is it cold?
Why is it cold?
I don’t know

Chorus 2:
I don’t want to be just an afterthought
When you blast off like an astronaut
Cause I don’t want all the space you want
I don’t want to be, I don’t want to be just an after, just an afterthought

I don’t want to be a snowglobe in your palm
Taken off the shelf to shake up when you want
I don’t want to be a worn-out party dress
Hanging in the back of the closet, just another thing you
oh - oh - oh - oh - oh - own, a thing you
oh - oh - oh - oh - oh - own, a thing you
oh - oh- oh - oh - oh own and I know

I don’t want to be just an afterthought
Not a keychain for the car you bought
Only take me out in the parking lot
I don’t want to be, I don’t want to be just an after, just an after --
I don’t want to be just an afterthought
When you blast off like an astronaut
Cause I don’t want all the space you want
I don’t want to be, I don’t want to be just an after, just an afterthought
