Weinland is an Oregon band whose sound USA Today compared to Neil Young. Their frontman Adam Shearer told us: "Sunken Eyes" was a lucky break! It's probably my personal favorite track on the record and it just happened the night before we recorded it. I had this little melody and chord progression in my head for a couple of weeks but just couldn't come up with any direction for it. Then somewhere out of the blue that "sleep like a soldier" line just came out of my mouth and I got really excited. To me it paints such a clear picture of living with a sense of being unsure. So I wrote a song around the idea of being unsure, or ill at ease, in your own home. All of the lyrics represent some element of dismay I have experienced. the lyric that says something like "a sense of heartbreak all around, I can see it in this house" is all about how messy my house gets when I am struggling with other things. The lines that say something like "old white doves float around, sunken eyes trickle out" is about how when you're arguing with a loved one you often go back to old patterns that usually include peace offerings and tears. Its a simple song and that is why I like it. We spent a couple of hours arranging it the night before we recorded it and then we just laid down the drums, guitar, bass, and piano live. I think it came out pretty cool. All of the songs on Breaks In The Sun have a special meaning to me. Each of them is a little diary entry, or snap shot, of where life was when we recorded them.
