Reduction Plan Queens, New York

Reduction Plan's music comes from within solitude's frigid embrace. Pulling from 80s goth, industrial, dream-pop, as well as cacophonous no-wave, Reduction Plan uses both noise and space to illustrate the power of silence. Synth swells, hypnotic guitars, pulsing drum machines, and haunting murmurs form the foundation of the project’s sound. ... more

Track Name: Empty Anger
i will never give you what you want
cuz all you've ever wanted is not nearly enough

i will never get what i want
cuz all i've ever wanted, it was way too much

never said that
it's your fault
i will never give you what you want
never said that
it's my fault
i will never get what i want
Track Name: Dwell
gently in my hands
i hold onto
all of the things
that my head won't let through

gently in my hands
i can see right in
to the places that
i won't let myself go

don't let it dwell
never let it dwell
Track Name: Hold On
i will hold

i can't hold on

i won't hold on
Track Name: On Yr Own
you can't come in tonight
all on yr own
and i can never quite reach you
you can't be all alone

someone else's dreams
have forced their way in
this is not what i wanted
just what could have been

no i never
had you ever
Track Name: Silence
drift into sleep
i want to sit
at the bottom of your lake
let your cool dark hands
take me away

i don't want to be here anymore
without you

and in those depths
i might find
silence at last
let your cool dark hands
take me away

i don't want to be here anymore
without you
Track Name: An Act of Self Preservation
don't you try
to change my mind
i am a wall

and if i could
you know i would
but i see no future

don't try and run
i will not hide
my mind is open
but my body's tired

i am tired of myself

if i could
oh god i would
