about

"With its 'cavalier fancy pants,' Tiny Anchor—Le Fomo’s second single of 2020 out via Club Queen and AnalogueTrash—delivers a punchy mix of ’80s and ’90s nostalgia.

"Tiny Anchor is a song about navigating intimacy,” the band explains. “It can be hard to see that someone loves you when your traumatic or fear based thinking patterns get in the way. An interaction can easily feel like rejection when we’re on high alert. It‘ll send us off spinning. I like to ‘throw a tiny anchor’ to slow things down, to take some emotional space to understand what’s happening without tanking the whole ship."

Kai’s signature guitar hooks right from the beginning, launching into Ess’ rich and punchy vocal delivery. It’s pop; it’s punk; it’s new wave, and you won’t want to miss this one.

LYRICS

Side step the rancor
Keep my mind intact
Throw a tiny anchor
Pull back pull back
Side step the rancor
Keep my mind intact
Throw a tiny anchor

Pull back
Pull back
Pull back

Cavalier fancy pants
See this, my aloof dance
Lezzie games, a habit
Adoration, cannot stand it

Side step the rancor, keep my mind intact

I risk the first move
Offer generosity
Gave her all my power
Let my attention overcrowd her

Side step the rancor
Keep my mind intact
Throw a tiny anchor
Pull back
Pull back
Pull back

She’s got tricks
Hella tricks
My tricks, they get flipped a bit
No hugs from these arms race
At all costs
I must save face
I must save face
I must save face

Goddexx please invert these fears
Goddexx please invert these fears
Goddexx please invert these fears
Please
Please

Side step the rancor
Keep my mind intact
Throw a tiny anchor
Pull back, pull back
Side step the rancor
Keep my mind intact
Throw a tiny anchor

Pull back
